So, it's 11:42 pm as I'm writing this. Still Sunday, right?
I went to the Animal Fair
The birds and beasts were there
The old baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his auburn hair
The monkey he got drunk
Fell over the elephant's trunk
The elephant sneezed, fell down on his knees,
But what became of the monk, the monk, the monk?
For the second round of the Embroidered Button Swap, the theme is going to be Animal Fair. Like last time,
we'll be embroidering buttons of approximately 1" (the 7/8" ones are fine, too), but this time you can cross stitch, French knot or whatever you want, but the subject needs to be anything related to animals. Each participant will be sending me six embroidered buttons (this is one more than in the first swap), and you'll be getting back 6 different ones, all from different people. The variety is incredible, and these little gems are very very fun and addicting to make. You'll need to sign up by March 10, and mail all buttons to me along with a self-addressed, postage-paid envelope by May 10.
If you want to play along, just email me (the link is in the top left sidebar) with your name, mailing address and blog address if you have one. If you're not in the States, just let me know, you can still join in, we'll just work something out to cover the cost of postage.
Oh, and I didn't forget about the giveaway, we actually have three winners. The Random Number Generator picked numbers 2 and 10, Mirre and Regina. But Regina already has one of my robot buttons, so I'm going to embroider a new button for her, and the second robot goes to Jessica. Yay! Send me your address, gals, and I'll get these buttons in the mail right away.
Okay, now it's past Sunday. Bummer. Sorry!
