Dish cloth swap buddy list

Hello all,
134 ladies from four different continents sent me their e-mails and entered the swap. I am so happy there were so many of you who joined in the fun.

Please contact your swap buddy as soon as possible and no later than May 5, 2011. If any problem develops in contacting your swap buddy, please contact me immediately at cdetroyesatyahoodotcom and use swap problem as you title.

I have converted your emails so that the spammers can be kept at bay but it should not be difficult to figure out the accurate email of your swap buddy.
Please mail your dish cloth by May 15, 2011. Do not forget that international shipping will take longer so please do not panic if your parcel does not arrive for a bit.

If you do not receive your parcel by June 1, 2011, please contact me.

As some ladies have asked, it is quite alright to include a little surprise with your dish cloth if you so desire.

I tried to match everybody according to their preferences and I hope that you enjoy meeting your swap buddy.

Hugs, Sharon

  1. Thanks for organising this, Sharon!

  2. Thanks for all your hard work on this, Sharon! I am so excited to be participating!

  3. This is such a great list of swappers. Quote a few old friends and many new ones as well. I hope you all enjoy the swap, I wish I had time to join in. I'll be in the next one.

    Many thanks to Sharon for all her work on the swap and for making up the list.

  4. Thank you Sharon for all your work in organising the pairs...It must have taken quite a bit of time! We all appreciate it!

  5. OOH! This is so exciting!

    Thank you so much for starting this swap! My firzt one, don't you know. I can't wait. Good luck everyone.

  6. You're amazing Sharon! Thanks for all your hard work. Claudia

  7. Hi Sharon,

    I'm Jude McIntyre - I wanted in the swap - just double-checked I'd left a comment to be included - which I did but didn't leave my email in the comment.

    I have four finished and I am still interested if you have some others who would like to swap.


  8. Thanks Sharon for all your work. meant to say that if you have anyone UK based who needs a swap angel i'm happy to oblige.
    Pauline :-)

  9. Thank you Sharon...I am so excited to meet my swap partner!

  10. It looks like you've got wonderful participation but I do not see my name on the list :-(

  11. I see Jude McIntyre is also wanting to participate. My email is kerichojoy[at]

  12. Thanks to the two late swappers like me who got in touch to swap! Never too late! Thanks Sharon, managed to sort this out myself!

  13. Jude, Sharon will be in touch with you and the others not included.

  14. Thank you so much Sharon for all your work!!!

    I have received and replied to an e-mail from my swap buddy and I am just so excited!

    That is a huge list of us - you have done an absolutely fabulous job, considering that you're also typing one handed at the moment!!!

  15. Have I missed the deadline to join in the swap??? I hope not but if I have it is just because I was not paying close enough attention. ;o(
    I have been reading Down to Earth Blog for about 3 years and have learned so much and have implemented many of Rhonda's wonderful Ideas. One being crocheting and knitting lots of dishclothes. Lol!

  16. Jude and joyful, could you please e-mail me so can get all of my list corrected too!! thanks and hugs. If ther is anyone else who wanted n I have room for one more so first come first buddied!!

  17. Sharon,

    I left a message to be included and couldn't find my name. Probably the fact that when I emailed forgot to put in email address. I have sent it through again, if I can be in.


  18. Jennlala and Nicole could you e mail me again and I can put you two together that would be great (Nicole you emailed me, but ignore my replyas we now have a buddy for you)

  19. thank you sharon for putting this together. alot of time and devotion must have been dedicated to doing this. i very much appreciate all your efforts. so very happy to be involved with this swap.

  20. Hi Sharon, Jude and I are swapping with each other ;-) I've sent you my contacts. Hope you get it.

  21. hmm.. I've contacted my partner twice and still haven't gotten a reply. So now what? LOL I have a dishcloth to send! LOL

  22. Wow, I have been a bit behind so I have just contacted my partner and am looking for free crochet dish cloth patterns... I have read that some of you have already crocheted your cloth(s - Jude McIntyre, way to go!) - you are all pretty organised :-)

    I am looking forward to making my cloth, and am even more excited to make friends... even though I am 27, I am more of a crochet-learning, vegetable-gardening, home and family loving kinda gal and am trying to learn more about living simply... not so exciting to most people my age that I know, lol.

    Thanks for all the hard work gone into the swap, and good luck and have fun everybody!

    Warmest blessings,
    Angela @

  23. Hi Rhonda, I guess I missed out on this swap but I am very interested in getting a buddy. Thanks for taking my query and if anyone wishes to swap I'll be glad to be a French buddy. Thanks and Happy Holidays. Sylviane. My address is:
