Well ladies, I don't know about you, but I've been following the outcomes of the A Common Thread Project and kinda wishing I could be a part of it, too! The idea of getting something pretty in the mail from another crafty lady somewhere else in the world and then incorporating it into an outfit holds a lot of appeal. :-) Kind of like reinforcing that whole sewing community thing by making a garment that someone else contributed to.
So I've been thinking, and what I was thinking was - how about we do something similar via the Sewing Circle community? What if those of us who were interested put our (virtual) hands up, and we then did a little out-of-the-hat draw and each of us sent some lace or pretty ribbon or nice buttons or similar to the person whose name we get given. And then we can each make a garment incorporating what we receive in the mail from someone else in the circle! Kind of like one big, happy, swapping circle of pretty sewing notions.
What do you think? Would you be interested? I'm happy to do the organising (i.e. collect names/addresses, do a random allocation and let everyone know who they're allocated to send something to) if people are keen.
Oh Debbie... I am so sorry ,it got lost ..and Im not the lady ....but I just know ,whoever she is...she will feel awful.. I hate when things get lost in the mail..Sad too!!!

just had to say ,I'm sorry.
best wishes for your family ! we hope everything goes well and take your time ! ;o)
Hi Rachel! Sorry I've been a bit slack in replying - been a crazy few weeks, but now it's time to catch up with all you lovely sewing ladies! :-)
Looks like people have been uploading them and tagging them as "traveling lace" - there's quite a few in there, exciting! Am hoping to get mine finished and uploaded in the next few days (terribly enough it keeps getting delayed in the finishing due to the Sew Weekly challenges! Eek!)
So lovely of you to link to us all on your blog - thanks! Great to see people's creations in one place. :-)
I know I already posted this, please excuse me, I am putting it here as well because I am not sure if Kat saw it.... you will recognise the lace Kat, as you so kindly sent it to me, I have finally got my backside in gear and used it, I also have button plans, I really really enjoyed using your lace, made me think how far it had come, what fun and I still have more to use xxxx
