Fair Square Exchanges

My exchange partner Jeanie C in Singapore and I have both received our exchange squares for Round 19 so I thought I’d share. Without any communication whatsoever between us, we both chose the same colour theme. How’s that!

I just love what I received from Jeanie C:

Signature Square to Jeanie C

Design: Quaker Style Valentine freebie from AuryTM
Fabric: 32 count white Belfast linen
Thread: DMC  48 (variegated)
Embellishments: Mill Hill pink beads

I was sorry to find out that Fair & Square Round 20 wasn’t going to happen because of very few sign-ups. Apparently there are many members who have not been participating regularly, and there are non-members who’ve expressed an interest in being a part of the group. Our coordinator Jill has put a message on the blog to reinvigorate the group. I’ve been a member since Round 3 or 4 and thoroughly enjoy this exchange. I do hope it all works out. If you’re interested in being a member, please see information on the Fair & Square blog.

I’ve taken a short break from stitching in July – code for “I’m not stitching a major project, but meddling in a few small ones”. I have to write a job application for a pool position at my job this weekend, then I have to prepare for an interview, which I hopefully will get. Wish me luck! This means I probably won’t visit your blogs for a little while, but I hope to get back into full swing in August.

In the meantime, here’s wishing you all Happy Stitching 😉

    Lovely square Pokua. Too bad there is low participation in that exchange. I have thought about it but I thought Jill wasn’t accepting new members. I hope you get the job – keeping fingers crossed for you.
