In my “real” life I manage and write for a blog for Free Spirit Publishing, and there is a great giveaway going on. There are two different “Bully Free Bundles” up for grabs, one for elementary and one for middle school teachers. Anyone can comment for a chance to win. Free Spirit publishes books for kids, and even more for teachers, dealing with topics from autism to differentiated instruction, depression to gifted ed, and lots more. Hop over to the Free Spirit Publishing Blog and enter to win one of these great book bundles for your classroom, your school, or to share with a teaching friend. To all the NEWBIE QUILTERS out there:
Your donor partners have been sent contact info, and will be emailing you for mailing instructions. If you requested 2.5 inch charms, you have two or three donor partners, spreading the donated wealth as evenly as possible. If you are a lucky Newbie seeking two-inch charms, you have five to six donors assigned, as it was the most common size to donate. No brave Newbies asked for 1.5 inch charms! Pity, as the smaller sizes stitch up beautifully.
I am working to tie up the loose ends, and fix a few errors, on the entire April swap. And to answer the 142 emails you all have sent me this week! Thanks for bearing with me, this madness shall pass soon. Then I will get back to doing a little SEWING myself.
Thank you ALL for taking part, putting up with the pace, and coping with a few hiccups along the way. May you all have a great time sorting your new little treasures. And please, do not simply collect them, start chaining pairs together!
And keep cutting!!! The next swap round is in July. And later this month there are some special treats coming up that all PSQ lovers should enjoy.© 2012 by The Curious Quilter, thecuriousquilter.net, maryeoriginals.com. All rights reserved.
