I'm not in this swap, but I did read your post about the Spoonflower fabric.  If you don't mind me asking, was that the fabric from the free swatch day that you are referring to (the one you said you received in the mail)?

The themes were great...they made me giggle!

The package was AWESOME!

TroubleT, I wrapped up and addressed the envelope with the items in it for you, DH should be mailing it tomorrow or Friday.  I'll PM you with the DC when I get it.

Mare Mare...I picked up a skein of VERY girly yarn yesterday on clearance at Michaels, and cleared out their clearance yarn a few months back...I was SO HAPPY to see your list and find something I could make with this wonderful yarn!  I PMed you for your address.

I do have a question, though...the three numbers in the parentheses...the first number is the number of claims you've made, I guess...but what are the other two for?

FOR MY BEST FRIEND:
-I just found out tonight that she had a stroke last Saturday, and will be spending some time in rehab.  She's a young woman, only 38.  I would very much appreciate anything that anyone would like to make her that she could enjoy while in rehab.  Her favorite color is lime green.  Her feet are always cold (she is only 4'11", so she has tiny feet). I've not had any experience with someone in rehab, so if you can think of something you think she could use, please PM me and we'll talk.
-Something 'Tetris' themed
-Something 'Beeker' themed (from 'The Muppet Show')

4236  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Hungry Monster Nom-Nom Swap; Sign-Ups Are Closed; send out by 09/08/11 on: August 24, 2011 06:48:56 PM
I am sad.  I had ordered a swatch of monster fabric when Spoonflower was having the 'free swatch' day.  DH just pointed out to me that the order probably hasn't been shipped yet, and I realized that he's probably right.  That fabric was just so cool.  Now I'll have to make a run to Joann's and see what they have in stock.

On the upside...I noticed someone wearing something very appropriate for this swap and I asked her where she got it.  She told me and I went there tonight and purchased some monstery goodness for my swap partners!

I also completed two projects-one for each of my partners-while I had a friend visiting today!

DH FINALLY got me some bubble wrap envelopes last night, and I added buttons to what needed them, so TroubleT's envelope should go out tomorrow. 

I can't wait to claim someone else!  Grin

I'm not a part of this swap, but I read your post about ball aquariums not being good for fishes...I had one and didn't have any luck with it but didn't know why...why are they bad for fishes?
