Hey, ho, time for another month of friends signing up!

The point of this swap was to help us get to know each other a little more personally, perhaps better than just by reading on a message board. Some things are better shared in emails and messages than on a public website, if you know what I mean. :)  Growing friendships only helps to foster our spirit of friendship and closeness, something I know several of us have come to really appreciate since the beginning of Jess' comfy little corner of the internet.  She has given us the opportunity to bridge oceans and thousands of miles in a common spirit of sharing a passion we all love.  This is just an extention of that, and an easy way to help us grow closer as a community.

Basically here is what we do:

1. Please PM or email both myself and my co-host with your name, address, email address. Complete the  questionnaire attached to this post and send me your answers.  If you participated previously I still have your questionnaire, but please review them and make sure it doesn't need to be updated, or send me a new one.

2. I'll draw names to pair everyone up with a partner.  I'll send each person their partner's information, which will include name, mailing address, email address, and a short questionnaire with their answers.  

3. Once you have your partner, send them a message either via e-mail or PM here and introduce yourself a little bit, to get the ball rolling.  Continue trading messages throughout the month, getting to know each other

4. at the end of the month, please send your new friend a small gift of some sort. Doesn't have to be quilty related, but I'll leave that up to you. Previously we had set a $ amount of between 10-15.00 USD.  Just a little "something".  For example, I sent Mary some Texas bluebonnet seeds, a couple of FQ of Texas wildflowers, and a quilting magazine.  She sent me some fabric cuts from a nearby village in South Africa, and a quilting magazine from Africa that was PHENOMENAL!!!  Please post pics of what you receive so we can all ooh and ahh appropriately!!

5.  Next month we'll sign up again and get new friends, but feel free to keep up your email correspondences with your friends.

Hostess:  JennB

Co-Hostess: Gerda!

Sign-ups:  I'll take sign-ups until Monday morning, October 5th, and send out your partner's info (unless Jenn changes it) that day.  If you posted on the old thread you wanted to participate I have added your name below already.  I am posting the questionnaire at the end of the thread. Please let me know if you have changed your mind :)

Well, dear friend, you can stop worrying, I am definitely much better. Thanks for your concern. Now to get DH feeling better. We miss the grandgirls!! We have tried to stay away from everyone, as much as was possible. The funny part now, is that I'm not sure if I'm feeling hunger or nausea - story of my life when I get sick! LOL So I'll be careful for another day or two what I eat and drink, but I'm baaaaaack!!

Have a great weekend!

Boy when I get like that Gerda, all I eat are crackers! I HATE throwing up! Sometimes you know you would feel better if you could just do it and get it over with but I fight it for as long as possible! Wind up making myself miserable just trying to not get sick! Glad you are back! And feeling better!

I try to stick to dry toast and crackers, but go back to sandwiches too quickly.
I agree about the throwing up- you do feel better, but still...

No, I don't, Betty Jo - I think Jenn might, but I don't know when she'll be back. Would you please send them to me? Thanks so much.
