Have the names for 'colour' been sent out yet?

Just wondering if I've missed an email with the name I need to start stitching for in the colour exchange? Or am I just being too eager? :)

Next exchange** COLOUR **

so for this one you have to stitch something to the colour choice of your partner so when you sign up you have to give your colour choice too (very important)

so you can stitch anything you like but it must be of the colour choice, so a sampler or a blackwork(if you get what i mean) or anything you like you can use flat colour or variegated thread, your item can be finished anyway you chose

signup is until the 15th march because you won't be able to start until i give you your partners so that will give you more time

who's joining me then?

Partners details gone out! FOOD AND DRINK exchange

well apart from jane, you don't have your partners details yet, just waiting for an address but everyone else should have received and email from me.

so you now have until end of march to make and send your finished piece to your partner. it can be anything to do with food and drink, in a very broad sense, so get your thinking caps on and get stitching
please send recorded delivery, you know what our postal service is like!

please post a pic and a thank you as soon as you receive your item
