1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Holiday Tag Swap - Round 2 - Sign Ups Oct 06-20... Send Out November 8th... on: Today at 09:33:48 AM
The key is putting them some place where you can find them again... I swear that there are pockets of ribbons and tags in hidden areas around my house.  Now I know that I am not housekeeper of the year, but surely I should have found some of my stashes by now...

Do you think the dogs are moving and hiding them just to drive me crazy???

Wow - those are lovely bright colours and I *LOVE* the cat fabric!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Random Question [fabric for hand warmers] on: Today at 06:01:46 AM
I always thought of the fabric as an insulator for the materials inside, to hold the heat - so you warm the seeds, beans, rice, or whatever you are using as your filler in the microwave, and the fabric holds the heat, as well as transmits it, and feels nice.  How I have made mine in the past is to make a little muslin sack of the material, because I use rice, and for Christmas, added some crushed spices for the scent, and did not want any of the filler falling out, and then sewed that into felt holders.

So I think the denim will still be fine - it may not insulate as well as other fabrics, but will still work - and if the denim is thin, you could also layer it too - which will also help to insulate the filler more too.

I thought it would be cool to take the back pockets and make warmers from those.  Then I remembered - metal rivets + microwave = bad things...

That is a great scarf - your stitching is so precise and perfect - that adds nice detail

OK - about 8 hours left before I close down sign-ups. 

We have enough for 3 groups at present - without anyone who signed up being in more than 1 group - except me - I will make the "sacrifice"


if there are individuals who REALLY REALLY REALLY want to be part of 2 groups - please PM ME today so I can consider making extra groups/pairings of eager beaver craftsters...

I love how this looks - the the string of pearls is a sweet accessory.

OK - sign-ups ending Monday evening, at 5 pm EST - I likely will partner up that night and either send the PMs out that night or early Tuesday morning... so if you're sitting on the fence, consider coming out to play!
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Holiday Matchbox swap... on: October 18, 2014 08:54:21 AM
OK - so maybe when I am done with the workshops I booked this week, I will set this up to start sign ups for next week - keep it small, option of 1 to 2 partners, and to the Fall/Winter holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Winter solstice, New Years)... sounds ok?
