As most know that NicoleMarie made Handy Quilted Dish Mat.  I was thinking why not do a swap around this awesome idea.  This is the perfect GREEN FOR THE ENVIORNMENT SWAP!! I gave away my dish rack way before seeing this idea.  Bed Bath & Beyond sales an item called the Dish Drying Mat which I purchased 2 in different sizes.
  
Here is NicoleMari's post:

- Does not have any negative feedback: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- - If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES


SWAP DETAILS:

The idea is for each participant to make the Handy Quilted Dish Mat, 2 small or medium {crafted items} and 2 purchased items.  The Dish Mat would be no bigger than 16 in x 20 in size.  You can go the thrift store to purchase towels {they cost $1.99 to $3.99 each} to back the Handy Quilted Dish Mat.  The 2 small or medium must be crafted items ranging from potholders, dishtowels, scrubbies, washcloth, etc that coordinate with the Handy Quilted Dish Mat. The 2 purchased items could be cork stoppers, magnets, measuring spoons, etc.

In order to participant in this swap you must have access to a sewing machine to Quilt the Dish Mat {Dish Mat must be quilted} otherwise you can not participant in this swap. The 2 small/medium items can be crafted by crocheting, knitting, etc.

I reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have feedback that shows a history of incomplete packages, very late sending, ill-communication, lack of DC #'s, lack of picture posting, etc. I may refuse you. I want this to be a flake-free swap!

**I would like for everyone to post in the thread at least once a week so we know you are alive, kicking, and crafting.  This constitutes good communication and makes the swap more fun for everyone! **

For a wonderful swap experience, communication is the key.  Please keep in touch with your partner and your organizer.

Sending, Receiving, and Feedback

SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send. When sending, you must use a DC# {or for overseas keep that receipt}. Keep your receipt until your partner receives. PM organizer and partner when you send.

RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive. Take pictures of received items. {Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.} Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.

FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received {verified through PM or DC#} I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures {This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not} *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.*

*****Please label all PM's to both organizers as Handy Quilted Dish Mat Swap. Thanks!!  Now lets have some fun!!*****

I think this is a cool idea!  I love to cook so at any given moment there are more dishes than will fit in my rack.  This would be excellent for overflow.  What timing are we looking at?
