Are you looking to jazz up mealtimes?  How about some spicy placemats?  What about something really fun for the kiddos?  Remember those solitare games at restaraunts with the pegs, maybe we could work something like that into placemats.  How about some nice spring colors to get us out of the blah's of winter.  Did you know blue is an appetite supressing color?  Might help with those weight loss goals a lot of us have.  Maybe you've got more than enough traditional placemats, but would really love a set of smaller lunch mats/mug rugs?  We could work with that, too.

I'm going to open this up to sets of 4 & sets of 8.  That way, we'll hopefully get all family sizes covered.  If you've got other ideas feel free to work with your partners.  There's lots of room for customization in this swap, so please talk it up with each other.  If you've got ideas of something you'd like feel free to add it to your wist or link it here in the thread.

I am a real sucker for fabric placemats and have been wanting to make a new set for myself - more like finish a set I started a long time ago... and then make another set Cheesy
Very tempting.... I am going to ponder and wait to see if I have time as the date approaches...

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

I've already started thinking of the possibilities.  Definately going to quilt mine.  All the other big decisions will have to wait for partners.

I wonder if my partner would mind making me two sets of 4 instead of 8 matching? Or a set of 4 and then 4 non matching?  Or maybe a bunch of coordinating mats that aren't exactly the same?

That is a lot of ideas he he

I don't see why not.  I'd definately be open for something like that.  I put myself under 4 placemats just as a placeholder, I'll swap myself around and do whatever when it comes to the partnering phase.

I am working on my questionaire now. I would be interested in/willing to swap for 8 random placemats  We normally only use placemats for our two older girls so getting 8 different kids mats would be great!

Clear a space to make a mess!

That's too funny.  My girls set the table for dinner and they never match up our placemats.  I'd be fine with totally mismatched placemats, too.
