I've decided I'm going to send around a tea towel and then make it into a pillow or wall hanging when it returns to me!

A lot of people in past rounds have used their own drawings. I'd say go ahead!

I think I'm going to send out squares to make a quilt from. I really like that idea!!!

rectangel posted this right before you yesterday. Here it is again just in case you missed it. Smiley

DO NOT mark off where you want each person to stitch or send patches for people to stitch...if you decide to cut them up later that is fine but part of the fun is designs are meant to be done as one piece and you will notice if you look through past galleries that they often organically come to interact with the designs already on the towel.  It is really cool Smiley

crazy daisy ... I just added 4 more people we are now at 24 which kind of blows me away...

the gallery will be up later today...did you finish your tea towel on the weekend too?  I finished my design but I decided an apron needs a pocket so I decided I would sew it on to another towel before it goes out.

Yay! I'm in! Which is good, because I was so excited yesterday I already  started working on my apron. I would have felt kinda silly wasting all that work!

Anyways, I will be embroidering a mermaid on it. For some reason, I have been mermaid obsessed all summer.

I was paranoid that I wasn't going to make it in, since this seems to be a pretty popular swap!

I'm going to be sending out a 18x30 tea towel, still haven't figured out if I want to do anything to it beforehand.

Are stitchers allowed to use our own drawings for this, as long as they are originals not based on anything else, or do they have to be patterns that are available somewhere online or in a store?

I'm drawing my own for this... not using any 'boughten' patterns!

Hello! Just checking in. Stopped by the gallery and it looks great. I hope to work on my towel this week/weekend and get it ready to go out.

Hi everyone!  I just sent in my sign-up info.  I am fairly new to embroidery (or should I say "manbroidery"?  Wink ) and I am very excited for this swap.  I've been waiting for a new round to begin!  Looking forward to swapping with you all ... (if I get in, of course!) ...
