They are both quick to stitch, have a wide variety of patterns to choose from, lay flat for ease in mailing, and above all are absolutely lovely to receive. If you are interested, please let me know. Sign up will continue to April 21, with the understanding that your finished piece will be mailed no later than June 5th, enough time to be delivered before it is officially summer. You are also agreeing to upload a picture of your received piece into the exchange thread.

It would be nice if we kept to a colorful spring theme. A card should be left blank so that it may be used by the recipient as s/he wishes. No preferences will be taken - let's all be absolutely delighted to have a stitched piece from a fellow forum member. Please indicate your interest in participating by giving your name, the country you live in, and mailing availability. I will sort out who will be mailing to whom once I have a better understanding of the level of interest. Hoping to hear from you!

Sorry - I have been trying to update the first page and for some reason it copies to end. Tried to delete but can't. Please just ignore.

I've updated the 1st page (I'm pretty sure, anyway) for you, and deleted the duplicate response here at the end of the thread. Hope that's ok. :)

Well these darling pieces sure took their sweet time traveling, but from mailbox to forum has been less than 15 minutes! Sally, they are absolutely gorgeous! I am tickled pink! :wub: :wub: :wub: (Sally, I could not resist! Had a ball reading your letter. Yes, I am the Linda Rose who hosted the exchange.)

Thank you! :rose: :rose: :rose:

Reading Water From My Heart by Charles Martin, page nicely marked now. It will take me a long time to decide to send the card to someone else; but I will find someone extra special for an extra special occasion.

Those are totally gorgeous. :dance: :dance: However, I have to ask... totally in the spirit of an enquiring mind... did they sail? Perhaps a hot-air balloon? But well worth waiting for, that's certain!. :whoop:

Absolutely beautiful and well worth the wait. I do wonder what sort of journey they took to get to you, but sounds like they were determined to make it :roll:

Thank Goodness, talk about a "slow boat to China" wonder if that was where it got to first. So pleased you have got them now and the wonderful Exchange is now complete.

Thank you Linda for a wonderful exchange and I am looking forward to the Autumn one.
