Yay Lindy, glad you like it! I had lots of fun with those bracelets, and they didn't want to be apart from each other...  Cheesy

The perfect couple!

The movie is a testament to how awesome the main actors are because off the screen, Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey did not get along.

I didn't know that, either! I am always amazed when I watch Much Ado About Nothing and remember that Emma Thompson and Kenneth Branagh were splitting up in real life while falling madly in love in the movie.

This is moving quickly! I'm still crafting away (and signing up for other swaps), but don't worry, all is well here. Just a tad too hot for me. *hoping for Summer to move on already and let a lovely long Autumn take over...*

Okay, so after 45 minutes of playing I sent in my questionnaire... and now I want to update, straighten and purge my Pinterest (shoot, forgot to mention that in my questionnaire) and craft room, but it is half past eleven now and I think I had better go to bed...

Maybe I can get tomorrow started really frugally with mending the three dresses I have waiting... well, I guess it's altering two, and mending one. That would make dressing for this weather much easier!

Oh, this sounds good! I really love crafting from stash. Pretty handmade jewelry is frugal, too, right?

I don't know if I really NEED another swap right now, but this one would be perfect... I'll go play with the questionnaire and hope that my internet connection does not fail again. I wouldn't have thought so with two little kids and lots and lots of things to do, but 24 hours offline have made me very, very nervous and giddy. Plus, unable to connect to Craftster, so unhappy, too.

Ooohh, stamps, yes, here! I've been actually asking for a "simple sparrow" in the OWS, if that helps. I call my babies Sptzchen, and I love sparrows (and chickadees) anyway. And I could use some simpler, largish ones for little hands because the bigger little one starting fabric printing. All by herself. Strawberries on white velvet.  Roll Eyes It did smell delicious, though...

Postage is weird, yes. I avoid paying huge amounts (50+ EUR) for small to medium packages by mailing them as letters, and adding the registered mail feature. That's not as quick, but I usually stay well under 10 EUR and it provides decent tracking - mostly via the recipient's country's post.

Okay, and now let me think which board I'm on and what I came here to say...

Ah yes, Annchen: The only thing is I had to switch fabrics, so no silk taffeta for you (no silk for me either). Plain cotton all the way, but at least it might last a bit longer that way.

Wheee! So excited to be dancing with Ave!

I think the hardest part will be to actually remember posting once a week for the next eight weeks. Maybe I should make up a swap sheet that includes checking off the postings. And try not to bury that somewhere on my desk...  Roll Eyes

Yup, chair socks are great, but I have to pick lint (and other stuff) off them and wash them pretty often. Keeping the floor really really clean would probably work, too. Haven't tried that one yet.

I have two claims to post, from La Chapa and jemimah!

First off, here are two sets of chair socks from La Chapa. These are a bit different from the ones I already have, and the bottoms are really, really well padded. So great! And La Chapa included some pressed pennies from her collection, a sticker (claimed by my daughter already) and a lovely card:


And the action shot: See how well they fit our chairs?


Thank you so much, I'm always afraid that we disturb my parents downstairs, the chairs make so much noise on that floor - used to make, that is!

And jemimah claimed me for an organiser - this is the exact same pattern from my Pinterest, and I love it! I think it will go to live in the bathroom, to make it more calm & beautiful (the bathroom, that is - greenish with browns and a creamy yellow - not as bad as it sounds, but nothing I would have put together, ever!)

Here it is, hanging askew on my kitchen wall, with some extras peeking out:


Group shot:


Closeup of the extras: Cute buttons, a sewn envelope needle book (from the prettiest teal fabric, see group shot!) and one of jemimah's awesome watercolours, a bird on its own little planet!


So beautiful! Jemimah, thank you too, very very much, I love it all! And I look forward to swapping with you again, I have a fairy tale book picked out for you already.
