I've joined a new swap group!!! It's called the 'Dog Days of Summer' Dishcloth Swap. What happens is you get allocated a partner, you make contact with them by the 6th of July by email or posting on their blog. You complete the questionnaire posted on the Swap site, and post it on your blog so that your buddy can find out a bit about you. You have til the 15th of August to send out a parcel to them. Your parcel is to contain:
A knitted or crocheted dishcloth
A pattern for a dishcloth
Some sort of yummy specialty soap
A skein of cotton yarn for your pal to make cloths with
Any other edible or good smelling goodies you wish to include
Total value should be no less than $15, not including shipping.
Registration is open til the 30th of June, so there's still a couple of days left for those of you who are keen to join. The details of how to register can be found on the site.

Please share 3 tidbits about yourself that you think your pal and other swappers might find odd or interesting. O.K where do I start... Well I turned straight to my husband for some advice and here is what we've come up with. I guess that the first thing could be that I love animals, the second that I'm very old fashioned and love all things old school and the third would be that I'm extremely motivated and I love having other motivated people around me like my husband.
