Boy you gals really like to keep me on my toes, don't ya. I never know how much to restrict the requirements for an exchange piece but apparently most of you don't like "no restrictions" either, or maybe it's just you want "some examples", I'm not sure. I have gotten several e-mails asking what are the requirements for the new exchange, "Ready for Spring"? or "what do mean, Yoyo, when you say 'Ready for Spring'." I guess it does mean different things to different people. Ok, so here are some examples -- with as few restrictions as possible.

For me Spring is a romantic time. Friends meeting again after a long winter apart. Lovers falling in love -- their hearts beating in time with the birds' merry songs. That music floating through the air carried to every flower, chick and bumble bee. The earth is reborn and renewed, cows and sheep and pigs and rabbits and fox, all rejoicing in Spring. Children hunting Easter Eggs through the daffodils and daisies. Rainbows of color bursting out in stripes and spots and polka dots. Babies laughing, farmers plowing and mothers stitching under a tree. So many beautiful biscornu, needlerolls, tea towels, pin keeps, greeting cards, samplers and ornaments falling from their laps. Friendship, happiness and love. That's what Spring means to me.

But yawl really should figure out what Spring is for you and go from there (LOL).

You have until January 22nd (midnight US Central time) to sign up for our "Ready for Spring" exchange. Send e-mail to yoyo_9203 at yahoo dot com including your name and mailing address in the body and 'Ready for Spring' in the Subject Line. As always, "extras" are never required for our exchanges, we respect the financial situation of all of our members. A 'stitched-by-you' item is the only requirement. Well, a little note that gives your name and the name of the exchange is helpful, too.

Happy Stitching

I am so organised (yeah, right) I chose the pattern, gathered the threads - then realised I still need to email you!
