Are you in the mood?

Did your thoughts immediately jump to something a bit naughty? Well just get your mind right out of the gutter! This blog is about quilty things ya know, not about smut.
This year's edition of the Modern Mini Mystery Round Robin is about to end soon and my thoughts have been about what's up next. I really like hosting fun events here on my blog but I'm in the mood for something different this time around and I want to see if there is any interest out there in quilt blog land.

What might I be conjuring up?

Well....I think it is high time for a secret type of swap, just to one person that you would be assigned, something (or a couple of somethings) that you'd make for that person after you stalk their blog for a bit to see what they might love to receive from you. It can be anything from a mini quilt or wallhanging, a table runner, some placemats, a bag/tote, a garment (though good luck guessing their size), some other cute decorative handmade item, a pincushion, a tablet case, a thread catcher or anything else quilty/sewing related that would be the perfect gift for your secret pal. Along with the handmade item (s) you could include a few little goodies too if you wish.

You'd have a few months to plan/sew/shop and mailings would be due by the end of the summer. You do need a blog so that your pal can stalk you.

So are you interested? Let me know and if I get enough responses I'll formalize the details.

8 of you added your own colorful comments:

  1. hmmm am tempted but would need to know start and end dates cos Im getting really busy atm

  2. SIGN ME up!! I've seen these online and people got some NICE goodies :-)

  3. you know me and my addiction to swaps xx lol xx where do I sign?

  4. Very eeen-terrrrrr-esting!!!!! Will ponder a bit! Summer is already escalating! Hugs, Doreen

  5. I may be interested. I was thinking I'd sit the next round robin out for reasons I am sure you've read (btw - I have two of them here right now!) but I am also a swap addict and this sounds a little better with deadlines. My June is swamped, but I should open up a lot after that.

  6. Sounds like fun. Not sure I would come close to being able to play, we are in the same position we were in the last time I pondered the swaps/round robins. However the company sale was approved and actually happened at midnight last night/this morning so our personal stuff should become clearer soon (I hope, LOL)

  7. That sounds like fun! I am going to have to sit out the next round robin - things are getting a little hairy around here - but I'd love to sit in on a swap if you end up hosting one.


I enjoy reading each and every comment that you share. And isn't that what it is all about....sharing.
