Name Game Swap {Sign-Up}

Are you ready for “The Name Game” swap? Yes? Fantastic!!
The idea for “The Name Game Swap”, came when I made a mini quilt to hang up in my sewing room above my sewing machine. I liked it so much, that I am now using it as my blog header. I had some great comments and emails regarding the idea of the swap, so it’s all systems go.
I admit that I’m not very good when it comes to photoshop, publisher and all of those great graphic programs, so Jane of Want it! Need it! Quilt, made up this fantastic button for the swap. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Thank you Jane!!!
Name Game Swap - Samelia's Mum

If you are joining, I’d love it if you would blog about this swap. Feel free to use this button in your post or on your blog. The more the merrier, right?

Here are some of the swap basics:
It will be an international swap and is based on the idea of making a mini quilt for your swap partner, using their name / blog name in the quilt.
The size is up to you, but it should be bigger than a mug rug. I think work on a minimum of 9” x 12”
It will be a blind swap which means that you won’t know how will make your mini quilt, until it’s delivered by your lovely postal service.
Leave a comment here on this blog post if you would like to join. Alternately, you can send me an email. My email details can be found up on my right side bar.
Sign up is open until 15 January 2012.
The week after sign up, I’ll make up a list of everyone who has signed up and will send you an email requesting your postal details, preferences etc which will then be forwarded to your partner.
Join the Name Game Swap Flickr group if you would like to add inspiration boards or collage of your preferences. Or you can post your collage on your blog, so that your partner can stalk your preferences and style.
Swaps are to be sent in plenty of time to reach international partners by the end date which is 15 March 2012 – just in time for Easter – Yay!
I’m excited! This will be fun, fun, fun!

Sounds great...& also a little scary for anyone like me who may not be as talented as some of these fantastic quilters! When you say "blind" - will it only be for experienced quilters? I would hate to let anyone down.

Immigration to Australia, or to any new country or culture, is filled with ups and downs. But hearing the stories of other people, who have successfully been through the process, goes a long way to reducing the fear of the unknown. Allow me for a few moments to share some of our experience of immigrating to Australia. Some of the victories and challenges.
