All Paired Up


Well No.2 and I have had a very busy morning sorting out all the swap partners.  She's off school today with a tummy bug, but I have to say she's been such a great help explaining to her hopeless mother how to do all the copying and pasting etc.  We got there as a team and are feeling quite proud of ourselves.  Now we wait with baited breath to see if the emails have arrived safely.  Fingers crossed! xx 

Some of you may think it's a co-incidence that your name is similar to your swap partner's.  Mmmm, I left my dear hubby in charge of pairing you up!  He is very orderly and put you all into alphabetical order!  Amazingly most of the list matched up with a person from another country beautifully.  There are a few that I shuffled to get a better mix. 

If you have not received an email from me today, and these blogs in the photo below are not yours, please contact me and I will resend an email to you.  If however, one of these blogs in the photo below belongs to you, please let me know as well as I've not heard from you, except to say that you want to join the swap. 


I am now officially closing this swap.  Sorry if you came here a little too late.  I'm sure I'll be doing another swap sometime later on.  It's been quite good fun seeing all the emails arrive in my inbox every morning.  Makes a nice change really!  I've also enjoyed having little chats with some of you too.  Thank you for all your lovely emails, it's made the job so pleasant.

Well, can anyone guess what I'm going to be doing now?  You guessed it - playing Scrabble!!  Have fun with your swap partner and go and create.

Thank you for all of your hard work! I received my email today. Very excited about this swap and really appreciate you organizing everything!

I've got my email also and have already mailed my swap partner. I did think it was a funny coincidence having the same (almost) name but seeing as you've explained that now, I totally get it and probably would have done the same.
Thanks for organising this and thank you #2 for your help too - hope your tummy bug up and leaves soon

He he he... that is funny about your husband doing the pairing. I did notice that my swap partner also lived in WA... but one many many miles away in the USA. Cool.

Thanks Sarah and #2 and Dad for organizing the swap. I have my email and my swap partner and I have been in touch to see what likes and dislikes are. Great to meet someone new in another country :-) PS Hope the tummy bug is better soon!

Sarah, I am having e-mail issues, they are sitting in my outbox refushing to go. Please let Kathy know that I am more than up for it and order some additional fabric today, as I needed more.
