Hello Maggie friends,
I decided what I wanted to do with the October Maggie swap
so I thought I might as well get it posted so you can think
about if you want to join now. After consulting with my faithful
Maggie swapper, Evelyn, I have decided it would be fun to alter
a basket with either a fall or Thanksgiving theme. I want the baskets
to be fairly sturdy and at least 10 inches from side to side and it also
must have a handle (either on the sides or over the top) I have been wanting to
play with a basket for some time now and this seems like a good time to do so.
Baskets are easy to find at almost any thrift store for very little money.
I want it to be sturdy enough that it can hold 5 or 6 pieces of fruit or something
of that weight. You can chose any shape basket you want just so you have either
a fall or Thanksgiving theme. You must have at least one Maggie image on this.
If you don't have a fall type Maggie then you might go more with the thanks theme
and use something like a angel Tilda praying or maybe the Indian Tilda for the
Pilgrim approach, or apple basket Tilda or something you can fit into one of those
themes. I am thinking this would be a nice thing to use on our Thanksgiving tables
with rolls, napkins or fruit etc.

This might be a fun time to try using some tree bark or acorns or mini indian corn cobs
just make sure that there are no bugs in anything or mold on it.

Also if you have allergies say to feathers or acorns or whatever it is your responsibility to
warn your partner about that.

Since we already have some directives going I am going to say that we allow the crafter to chose what style etc she wants to use to encourage creativity.
I have so many thoughts already on this of things that could be used besides all the usual emebllies. ie sunflowers, pumpkins, trees or leaves, scarecrows, etc.
If you want to create some kind of liner for the inside that would add a nice touch
or even a piece of muslin, but this isn't required.

In addition we will also buy our partner one store bought wish from her wish list
You must post at least a couple Maggie stamps but can post o few other wishes as well
as long as they are about $15 or under in price. If you post smaller wishes then
they can get you two or get you some other small item that together equals about $15.

I am also asking you to post a little something else about yourself and your hobbies.
If you love cats, or gardening or something else or have other hobbies like
reading, sewing etc share that. Even if we don't use those ideas on this swap it is fun
to learn a little more about each other.
I also ask that you trade addy's with your partner after I post partners and communicate
both on this thread and thru pm's with me (if needed) and your partner. Let's have some
fun together and share our ideas and thoughts.
The mail date will be October 28th so we have them in plenty of time for our fall tables.
Please post pics when you receive your basket, if you cannot post pics then as your partner
if she is able to post her own and yours for you. Also please buy tracking for your
parcel when you ship and post the DC # here on this thread when you have mailed.
I do not allow anyone who is on the flaker list to join my swaps as I want this to be
a fun experience for all.

Here is a link to a shabby chic basket that I found on youtube just to get your thoughts going.

Here's another one from wild orchid crafts

Here's a link on pinterest for a bunch of fall basket ideas.

Hi Kathy -- I got your basket last night while shopping. It is so perfect for this project. I am going to work on it tomorrow. Thanks for taking the time to do this swap once again. I know it is discouraging to only have 2 people in the swap but it is so good to work on a project for someone else. I don't mind if there are 100 or 1 involved in the swap. We just need to keep creating and enjoy ourselves.

Have a great weekend --
Evelyn

Hi Evelyn,
I think I have found your basket here too. I am still in the thinking phase
right now about what I want to do with it but am hoping I get some good inspirations
soon. I am going to go order your wish now also.
I think this will be my last time to host the Maggie swap for awhile, with the
holidays approaching and the rest of the stuff of our lives I will be taking a break
after this one. So let's just have fun with this and see what the results will be.
Hugs to you,
Kathy

PS I posted pics from last month of your Kleenex box today,
can you post yours too please? Thanks!

did for you. Please post pics of both swaps when you get it. Thanks
Here's your dc# 9114901159815588698743

HI Kathy -- Just wanted to let you know your package is postal. I have to wait for DH to bring the confirmation slip so you can follow it with me.

I also wanted to let you know that I LOVE the basket you sent. It is absolutely beautiful.
It is so dainty and I will proudly display it on our dining room table. I apologize for not keeping in touch something personal came up that could not be avoided.

Hope you will enjoy your package.

Evelyn

PS -- I am adding the photos for Oct (your basket to me, my basket to you), I will add Sept in the next post.

The first 2 pics are the ones of the basket Kathy made for me.

The second 2 pics are the ones of the basket I made for Kathy.

Oh jeepers! I have had computer issues and now I can't get my pics to upload correctly. The previous post was the best I could do. Confused

Now, I'll post Sept swap. The pics aren't that great but oh wow did I ever get some nice things from Kathy. Thank you so much.


Oops -- I meant to post this on Sept. I'll go put it there too!

Lovely basket Kathy ! Can't see Evelyns pix...

You girls should shrink down your picture images so they will show up without us having to click on the attachments....this can be quickly done in Windows Picture viewer or Paint editor which is on most computers...just right click on the picture and then click on the menu where it says to "Edit" and it takes you there. Love

Thanks Barb, I just have a different puter than before and am having a tough time
resizing images and this site isn't cooperating well for either Evelyn or me regarding pics.
I am going to try again to at least get the links if I can.
I can see Evelyn's pics okay, they are clearer than my recent ones for me.
I just have to open them on my puter.

Evelyn, I am so happy that you played with me again. You did a beautiful job as always and were so generous. I love everything about it! No dibbs from any of you watchers either.Flapper Maybe some of you can play with us sometime if I decide to do this anymore.

Okay so I will try and post pics first of my basket from Evelyn and then I will see if I can post any other pics of the one I made, we'll see
