December partners allocated early

Hi ladies,

A number of partners have suggested that we have our December block swap partners allocated early so we have extra time to make and send our block.

So.... I am about to arrange the partnerships and start sending emails today.  Thank you to those of you that have already advised me that you are sitting our December, and some of you January.

Remember that you still have a week to complete your November swap and if you are running late all you need to do is send your partner a quick email.

Every January I clean up the data base, and old members details are deleted from my files, as its too hard to keep everything, I also am only keep records of who swapped with who for six months, so you may from time to time be allocated a partner that you have swapped with in the past, it is purely coincidence, as with 80+ members there are plenty of people that you may have never swapped with.

One of my goals when I started the group was to swap with every new member as they joined up, but with some months having 5-8 join in a month, this fell on the wayside.  Rest assured I keep track of who I have swapped with, whether it is the Christmas or 6 inch group, so can one day complete a swap with you.  This month marks the last swap with all of our members in the Advanced group, so I will work my way through the intermediate group from January onwards.  I have however swapped with a good number of the intermediate group, but even so with 47 in this group its going to be more than 2 years before I have met you all in swapping land.

I will also take this opportunity to wish all members and followers a Very Happy Christmas and enjoyable and safe festive season.

Thanks Sue,
I have only been a member for a short time but throughly enjoy each new month. I have had fantastic partners so far and really wouldn't mind swapping with them again. Don't worry too much if you don't get around to all the new members, you do a greaty job and I feel everyone appreciates all your hard work.
Have a lovely Christmas and I look forward to next year
