placemat quilt swap 3

or pqs3 for those of you on flickr. Placemat Quilt Swap is a swap that I set up last year for swapping placemats. A very simple swap that runs when Doll Quilt Swap isn't running. For all of you (and you know who you are!) who can't get enough swapping.

This round, I paired myself with alexdk. That's one of the perks of running the swap. I get to pick who my partner is : ) Alex is a homeschooling mom like myself. And I thought it would be a fun swap. And I was right! We swapped a few educational things along with the placemats.

I asked for a boyish placemat with the intent of it being for my son. And Alex sent the perfect placemat with a little Canadian flavor. I don't think she knew that my son likes coins, so she really nailed it!


and the goodies she sent:


And here is what I sent Alex. She said she liked my houses and letters. So a house on one side:


and a word on the other:


She likes Snoopy and Peanuts too : )

It was a great swap, and I'm glad that Alex and I have gotten to know each other better. Thanks Alex!
