I am also the founder and co-ordinator of the Fat Quarter Swap Group - an Australian only group which swaps 2 Fat Quarters with a new person each month - we celebrated our 1st Birthday in 2012 and we currently have 20 swappers.
Being a Swap Co-Ordinator has enabled me to make some lovely bloggy friends ;-) and I look forward to another year of swapping.
My year with Quilt Block Swap Australia and Block Swap Adventure has been fun, with a change in preferences for me for 2013 as I now have enough Black and White and Red blocks. These blocks are now on my UFO list with the aim of finishing a quilt during 2013.
this is not all of the Black and White and Red blocks - just a photo taken in August last year.
I believe I have been lucky in that I have only had two 'one-sided swaps' for the year ........ but that has been beautifully balanced out by a few generous swappers who have sent two blocks ......... so I guess all is good in the swap universe ;-)
Just going through my list to make sure I have blogged about all the blocks I have sent and received, I noticed I had not blogged a full photo of the block I sent to Janeene for November QBSA swap.
This block has been sent to Janeene, but unfortunately, I haven't heard if it has arrived and I haven't received a block in return :(
Our CraftMad Family Quilt is now almost ready to be put together - just have to decide on sashing and cornerstones - we are in discussions what to swap for 2013 ;-)
I am looking forward to 2013 with my swaps and also look forward to returning to study in February - I have been accepted by TAFE to study Certificate II Printing and Graphic Arts (Desktop Publishing). I just really hope this old dog can learn a few new tricks and that my brain is able to absorb some new information.
Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
