    I haven't done a swap in SO long! I remember when Pam first introduced these.. Such a cute different thing to do. I think I'm going to do this but I don't want to sign up for something and not have time for it, so I'm going to try and start on one and if I manage to do that then I should surely be able to finish on time! Happy

    i would but my sewing machine broke this last year and i havnt been able to do any fabric crafts Happy

    @Sally- Good plan, its always really stressfull when you've gotten over excited and signed up for too many swaps! Happy

    @Gnomes- Dotees are nearly always hand sewn items- and the great thing about them is that they dont have to be perfect AT ALL, they are totally beginner friendly! So I hope you reconsider Happy

    That would be my comment to Gnomes as well.If you can break a sewing machine you can hand sew a dottee.

    I'll sign up for the swap as well.

    I came home from vacation/holiday to find Caitlin's doll sitting on my doorstep. (I don't know how long it had been there and I am so thankful no one stole it!) After a long trip home and it being 2am, it was a wonderful treat!

    Once the coffee kicks in and I unpack, I will post pictures.

  27. Posted

    @36GD- any luck on those pictures?

    Update from me- Essex Debs should have received mine by now, but i've not heard from her yet.

    EVEnl has confirmed she has received but cant post pictures untill this weekend.

    Who else is still waiting...Caitlin- have you had yours?

  28. Posted

    No sign of mine yet-will let you know as soon as it arrives ,nothing worse than not knowing how a package is received ;0)

    Sorry about the delay. I took it to work to hang it up at my desk forgot to take a picture - until yesterday.

    I have attached a picture.

    I sent mine out over two weeks ago but I haven't heard from her on whether she had recieved it or not. I will PM her now.
