Sew very excited! I have submitted my sign-up for the Doll Quilt Swap 9. Hopefully they'll let me in as a "newbie." Just began posting on flickr so that may be a factor. If it's no-go this time, I'll need to start posting regularly on flickr now, so that maybe next time will work.
It's funny because I'm new only to the swap itself. I've been sewing for 40 years and quilting for 25 but I am so inspired by all the new, young talent in online groups. It's invigorating!
I work in the quilting industry and I love my job. It's a little piece of Heaven!
