It's been awhile since I joined any swaps, but I did join a beach themed swap on squares squared on Ravelry. We had to make 2 or 3 squares to swap that our partner can add to their own squares to make a throw. We also needed to send a bag- preferable hand made, but that part was negotiable. My partner Jody, totally spoiled me - she made three squares - flip flops ( you now how much I loved flip flops!) sandcastle and a sun with shades. She also made a really cool pinwheelish bag with braided handles.
In addition she send a beach themed memo pad, mouse pad calender and photo album, a midsummer's night candle, peach tea, a orange pocket and a reusable shopping bag - you really can't have enough of them!!
I forgot to take a picture of my swap package to Jody so I snagged these pictures that she posted on the group's swap page.
I really can't wait to start making the rest of my squares for a light cotton summer throw!
