My First Exchange
My Workbasket "Quaker Animal" is on it's way to my exchange partner. This is my very first exchange and I'm a bit nervous. I've been checking out all the exchanges on the blogs that I follow and it looks like a lot of fun. I certainly did have fun stitching the animal....I should say animals. I couldn't decide which one to make so I ended up with three. The Quaker Cow done in Carrie's Creations red, white and blue variegated floss is about 75% complete. I voted him down right away because I thought he was a bit too bold for my first exchange. I didn't want to send anyone screaming from their mailbox when a crazy cow arrived. Then I made the Rooster. I really liked how he came out and I even finish-finished him. I think I have followed all the rules of exchanging correctly and that it is OK to post a photo of the finished rooster project since he wasn't chosen to be part of the exchange. I will also not reveal the name of my partner until I am sure the package has arrived to him/her. I added a few goodies too, following the inspirations that I have seen on other blogs. Can you guess I am having a little anxiety over this exchange? I actually did enjoy it very much. I love to buy gifts and this gave me a wonderful excuse to pick up a few little things and also finish a project in a set amount of time. I will certainly join another exchange when the opportunity comes around.
