Tea cosy swap

My life has been far from simple this past month as I've had so little time to relax and think about my world. Life continued at its fast pace when I started back at the Centre yesterday after a break of two weeks. Truth is I only had a few days off as I was up there cleaning and organising while the place was closed. I'm now going to work three days a week as we don't have enough volunteers to cover the days we are open. I'm interviewing a potential volunteer this morning so hopefully she'll be suitable and will want to join our small and friendly group. I am trying to keep the blog going but I might have to post at a different time. I'll see how I go.

So who would like to do another swap? I thought it would be a good idea if we did something that would suit knitters, sewers, felters and crocheters. Enter .... the tea cosy. Your cosy should be for an average size tea pot - 4 - 6 cups, unless you make arrangements with your swap partner to make a smaller or larger one.

We will gather names until Friday, and post the list of swap partners on Saturday. The deadline for the swap is Friday February 8. Please make sure you’re free to work on your tea cosy before you commit because late parcels will hold up the next swap. Everyone is welcome to join in as long as you can post on or before February 8.

This is important: To join in just add your name and email to the comments box. Please type your email address in this format: rhondahetzel at gmail dot com. That will give your swap partner the ability to email you for your postal address and will make the swap MUCH easier for us to organise. If you do not wish to include your email address in the comments box, please email it to me.

This is our
fourth swap and they're always a lot of fun. If you've not been involved before now, it is a good way to develop your skills and get to know your swap partner. : - )
