I would definitely be up for this.  Love the idea of jumping in when I can and stepping back when I can't.

I've done that format of swap with the atc's and I really like it.  You can jump in when you see someone has a theme that really calls to you, and you craft as soon as you claim.  I'd be in.

That sounds perfect to me  Cheesy

Only one other thought - I know people are finishing and presenting their inchies differently....should we agree to all send our inchies unmounted/unfinished or set a standard finishing method, or something like that?

Could finishing be an option you discuss with your partner? I like someone finishing it up for me with a little hanger and their name or something of the sort. I display little bits of art on their own tucked into nooks on my shelves or hung on the wall wherever there is an opening. I understand if others want a matching look for all their pieces but I love the variety represented when I showcase different artists. *shrug* Just a late-night-rambling thought. Wink

How about when you put your interest in you little bio you can put whether or not you want it finished. So it would look like this:

Hi my name is Pam, I like to sing really loud in the car, dogs, and crafting......my interests are:
pink
cowboys
dogs
I would love either cross stitch or embroidered pieces
The piece for me doesn't have to be finished, I want to frame them myself.


preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '_________________________________________________________________________')

Then SheepBlue decides to pick me and she puts up her list and then so on and so on and so on....

Basically just like the ongoing wish swap. You can jump in anytime, if you are an FOC you get three picks and one time, regular members two-you get two weeks to stitch.
