Our nation has been gripped by the spectacle of the Olympics followed by Paralympics. The Paralympics used to run alongside the main games (hence it's name).
My late night bloggy friend, Amy of [Amy's] Crafty Shenanigans (Amy nearly always blogs late in the evening and I am normally just having a little browse on blogger before I turn in for the night) have decided to have our own private version of Mouthy Stitches 2.
This is because both of us missed out on a place in the main event, so when commiserating with each other we decided that we too could do our own small version of the swap. We are going to make the same tote bags that the Mouthy Stitches crowd are making, but we are going to just swap with each other. I think that we are both really thrilled that we too can be part of the swap.
Amy has named the swap the 'Paramouthy Stitches' . It could be because we are a 'Pair-of-mouthy-stitchers' but you would be completely wrong. It is because like the the Paralympics, we will be running this little swap alongside the main Mouthy Stitches event. I have just peaked at Amy's mosaic here. It looks like there are many complicated snail like blocks within it. I reckon that Amy is trying to go for Gold and want to leave me with silver.

I have met some lovely bloggy friends through my ramblings about my sewing and one of these friends emailed me to say that she was sorry that I had missed out on the MS2 swap. She offered to make me a tote bag too. This kind and generous bloggy friend is Liz. I was so bowled over by her offer that I obviously said, very quicky, YES please. So now I have two entries in the side swap stakes. I have that warm fussy feeling inside. Thank you to both my lovely bloggy friends.
