Stashing, Swapping & Pledging...

I finally have something in my Birthday Love Stash, small as it is...
One is for The Stash, the other is for ????! These little mug rugs were made entirely from bits in my Scraps.

Today I put the finishing touches to my Initial Heart Swap item, & it's very pretty if I say so myself!
Don't you love it when you make something you are particularly pleased with?! So now it can just sit & be admired, until wrapping & posting time.
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*
Speaking of swaps, I just love 'em! I hold myself to a very high standard when I am making something for myself, & I do the same when making for others & putting together swap gifts.
I am joining with my stitching & sewing sisters in making the 2013 Swapping Integrity Pledge. 

I, Anthea, will try my utmost...
To always swap on time.
To always email a THANK YOU to my partner.
To be considerate and thoughtful when choosing a gift.
To give my partner the quality of gift that I would like to receive.
To communicate when it’s required.
To NEVER over commit and let a partner down.
To advise the swap mama when I receive my gift.

This I sewlomly pledge....
