I did it - I've sent my questionnaire through,
After reading delectably ghastly rhyming from this crew,

I must admit I need to work on my wordplay wit,
This swap is the key so please let me in it!!   Cheesy

I have a ridiculous idea for this swap. I really hope my partner likes jewelry. Smiley

This swap I passed by; I pretended not to see.
"No more stuff!" cried I, though I love Mr. Gorey.
But all was lost when with one fatal tap
I glimpsed the list of those who've signed up:
Sheepblue and Racky, Cackle and Phizzy,
And Knicker of course, the Mistress of Busy.
How can I pass up my favourite swap peeps
And new Craftster friends I'm eager to meet?
So I've just sent in my form, no point in delay.
I daren't risk missing the deadline: Friday.

I wasn't sure I'd have the time
I'm also very bad with rhyme
But Edward Gorey I cannot resist
Thanks for hosting, Knickertwist!

(Ok, that was bad... but seriously, the super-long sign-ups were awesome. I'm wrapping up with all by current swaps, and am really excited to start this one!)

I have to admit, tho sheepishly so
My knowledge of Gorey is woefully low.
I vaguely have heard of children meeting their end
In a ghastly and morbid game of pretend.
I've seen a few drawings, spindly and black,
That I attribute to him for the cheer that they lack.
My work is too playful, sometimes tongue in cheek
Too light and airy for true Gorey-speak.
I need a partner with whom I can establish rapport
And plumb the morbid depths and darkness explore.
My survey is in, I look to the masters.
I am ready to learn from Gorey-wise Craftsters.

Guess who the google landing page is dedicated to today?! Our dear Mr Gorey would have been 88 today.
