it's so hard to say goodbye....

hello lovely ladies,

i write this post with a bit of a lump in my throat because....

... i have decided to step down as swap mummy of Christmas Quilting Block Swaps Australia

there are a few reasons for this, but the main ones are the ones tugging on my pant leg when i am typing :)
i have loved being a part of the swaps, and then one of the mummies, but life has gotten a bit busy in the pug household with a 3 year old and a 9 month old (plus my big kid of course - hubby!), and i can no longer put in the time that is needed to run the swap.

i can honestly say that i have LOVED running the swap, getting to know you all, seeing your fabulous work, being inspired by your creations, and helping people find their way not only in the land of quilting, but also in the land of blogging and computing.

i hope that you have loved it too, and will give your continued support to the lovely Cathy who will be generously taking over.  Many of you will have swapped with Cathy in this swap or in the 12" swap, and have admired her lovely work (her points are always so perfect!!).

we will be handing over this month so in the meantime please continue to email me at crafty.pug@hotmail.com and we will post more information as it comes.

thanks again and much love to you all
crafty

Sometimes the changes in our lives paths happen for a reason. Enjoy your family, your children and thank you for all you have done with organizing the swaps, your time in organizing everything!
