Is there just one list so far...?

I was confused because it looked like there was a claim due on the 14th.

You may want to fine-tune the swap description-- several places, there are references to Feb instead of March and one of the two discussion board links takes you to the Feb discussion board instead of here.

Trying to decide if I want to participate... I promised myself I was going to limit my swaps, but birthday swaps are fun!

I'll jump in as a non-birthday swapper just as soon as I receive feedback from the February Birthday Swap and clear a spot!  Happy Birthday, March babies!

No one has signed up as of yet so yes there is only one list...

The claim due on the 14th is an example of how your sending PM's should appear in order to make things easier to track.
I updated the swap description thanks for letting me know!  I was in a hurry when I posted it yesterday and didn't proof read well enough.

I may participate as a non-birthday person. Hoping I'll have extra craft time during spring break week ... And that my possibly-broken hand cooperates with my crafting plans!

My birthday is at the end of this month, so I'll probably join. Just no time to do it this weekend.

Hey guys just want to check in and see how everyone is doing.  I got most of the supplies I needed for my two claims and I just need to find the time to work on them!  I am also waiting on one thing I ordered from etsy to arrive.

Don't forget to PM me and the person you are claiming if and when you decide to make one.  Also  when you send and receive.

I should have been done, but I think I need to finish with my Birthday party prep before I can do anything else... every time I sit down to do something I get distracted by it and nothing else gets done! I'll be in touch, and I hope to make one more claim next week...

I received my package from Amalgam last week.  She claimed me for an L embroidery and I just adore it!  I am going to sew the embroidered piece onto another larger piece of fabric and hoop it up for my wall. 



Your stitching is so perfect and tiny! 

She also sent an assortment of seed beads for me to play with.



Thank you so much!

YAY all the packages have been received!  It seems the one I sent to amalgam took a detour on it's way to it's new home....

I received from Alchamy513.  She made a wrap from my Pinterest.  It fits perfectly and I love the fabric choice!  Here it is being modeled by my rather unhappy tween


She also sent along these awesome wine themed cards and rub offs and a crochet flower


Thanks so much!  I loved my packages from both of you and I hope you liked what I sent too.  I hope you had happy March birthdays!!!

Silly me, I forgot to put my zip code in my address when I PM'ed lindy. Tongue But after getting that resolved, I'm happy to say that I have received my birthday package. Cheesy



I like the steampunk aesthetic, so lindy stitched up some gears for me. Steampunk diptych!



I'm always glad to get more fabric for my stash, so these two fat quarters are a welcome treat.



I didn't take a separate picture of it, but I also received a cupcake birthday card which you can see in the first picture. Thanks lindy! Cheesy

I am glad it finally arrived!  I got the gear patterns from Urban Threads that you had pinned somewhere.  Your stitching skills are so much better than mine so I hope you still like them.

Your stitches look perfectly fine to me. I need to find some nails so I can hang them up with my other hoops. Smiley

So I did receive a lovely package a while ago from Lindy... and I still can't get my camera to work. I'll see if I can steal one this weekend from somewhere so I can show off my awesome Steampunk stuff.

Also, I love the embroidery hoops!

It's funny how I have not done much steampunk themed things and then in this swap I made you both steampunk stuff!
