Lots of interest in this, so time to get it going!
I thought a bit of a mix is called for, hence opening it up to fairy tales, old & new, folklore & those little fae folk themselves - so pretty much anything with a fairy theme goes.

Details of swap: how about what seems to work in most swaps - one large, 2 medium, 3 small - & I think we all pretty much know how much effort goes into our work, so 'large' of course doesn't have to be something physically large, it's the time spent on it.
After all, a tiny intricately beaded or detailed piece could take hours & hours of work... use your judgement people, and if in doubt please shout out!
Paintings, ATCs, sewing, knitting, beading, felting, I think theres enough scope with this theme to cover pretty much anything! (if anyone wants to send me fairycakes.....yummy)
