    Also, if I wanted to do a specific themed RR, how would I go about that? Basically, I'm really into the Japanese culture right now, and I'd love to do a set of Asian themed cards, should I ask who would like to play? Or is that ok to do?

    It is ok to ask who wants a card. Probably the best way to get the theme you want. if nothing else you can pm each other and "talk" about it.

    Or i guess you could put a note with the cards asking what theme you want to stick with.

    xstitcher - I am up for all fabric/embroidered ATCs if you decide to do that !

    PS can I add other techniques such as crochet/knitting/patchwork in miniature as well as embroidery ?

    I do not like the idea of requesting themed cards, that is what the Swap and MMH threads are for. (That should be arranged in PMs if done here)
    This thread has been such a fun challenge because the artist use their creativity to make art that is unique and sooo special...Two recent fun examples were the cat with a mustache smoking a pipe and an alligator in a birdhouse
    And to our new members. Welcome to this great group! All media is welcomed here, I have made and received many cards with fabric, lace, ribbons etc....You have to be careful with the weight because they often cost extra postage...especially adding buttons!

    I don't see a problem with themes... this is different than the mmh and pif because we are still working together and adding our own embellishments. But to each their own :-)

    Anyways, here are some cards that stonefx sent me to finish. Nancy did the.background, stonefx added the bird on branch, and I added the flower and.butterfly punch, and the quote, and inked the edge...

    Sending two of these back to Nancy soon :-)

    I think themes are okay for those that want to do that stuff. For me I like the surprise of what the artist is going to do to my cards and how they will turn out. I love the creativity of everyone in here

    Hoping to have an "atc day" with Alornjr soon *hint hint* ... I need to fit in a play hooky from studying for my certification day.

    I havent checked in, for some time. I loved the postage stamps with the black cat. feeling envious.

    And I wanted to say that bird house with the unusual animal is now being hosted as a swap. It sounds fun. I am not the hostess. Check the open swaps list

    i wonder what i could do to get around that. i may have to think on it.


    i also have thought about doing an all fabric card. i would ask for volunteers for that on though.
    That would be fun to do "separated at birth" twin sets... A group I belonged to did that once with complex cloth (you started with a piece of fabric you had hand-dyed, then cut it in half and sent half of it one way, half another...) It was fun to see how differently they turned out. We did have to have a schedule of what to send where, though. I don't think with an ATC it would matter if it had the same people working on it twice - after all, they wouldn't both be 2nd player, so what they add might be different anyway. And if a person received one they'd already worked on, they could send it along to someone else... I'd be willing to play along with a group like that!

    I've also thought about doing an all Found Poetry RR - first person adds one or two short lines, second person continues the poem and so on. Obviously other things could be added as well...

    I was thinking (which can be very dangerous, just ask my husband ) about what i could do. i decided if i do it i will start it on a piece of fabric the same size i use for an ATC, cross stitch something on it and send it to player 2 who adds their thing then sends to player 3. there would be a piece of paper for everyone to put their info on included.

    once player 3 is finished they can send all 3 back to me so I can complete the backs and get them back out.

    of course it is all just in my mind right now.
    I would play in an all-fabric set if you like. Even happy to finish the back off, if I was player 3 (as I do all-fabric cards quite often anyway...)

    I just looked to see what I do.

    Usually I put player but looks like I slipped into host mode at some point and hit the host button. My apologies to those I did wrong.

    edited to add

    I just looked at the iTrader for the person I left it for in a Round Robin and when I say I was the player (which I thought I did) it shows on mine it was from me as the host. Wonder if that means we should be hitting trader each time?
