It's a blind swap, which means that I don't know who's making something for me and vice versa. Since it's all so mysterious, you make a mosaic and post it in the Flickr group so that your partner can stalk you and get an idea of what you like. I put together the following mosaic to represent--not my actual kitchen--but the kitchen / vibe that I've been working towards.

I got my partner's information this week. I'm not completely sure what exactly I'll be making for her yet, but feeling inspired by the information that I garnered from some short survey questions and a little Flickr stalking (which I can't share, because that might give it away!), I ordered this "Suburbia Vintage Kitchen Works" fabric from Caleb Gray / Robert Kaufman Fabrics to sort of be the star of everything I make.
I'm hoping I can find some time this long holiday weekend to do a little more research and formulate some more concrete plans on what exactly I'll be making.
