Ohh I would like to do this swap. I'm fairly new and have never participated in one before, but I've been looking through the past ones and they look like an absolute blast. I got a new sewing machine for Christmas and I'm just itching to get crafting. Smiley

Is there somewhere I can find the swap guide, or is it just this post itself?

I am so signing up for this one...as soon as I'm at a normal keyboard that won't take me 20 years to complete the questionnaire :-) I'm not great at typing from my iPhone! But if the hockey game suck bad enough I might need something to do :-)
