21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Favorite Color Swap - Winter 2008 on: April 02, 2008 08:18:46 PM
I received from Moecantsew!  Let me just say, she's the most awesome swap partner!  And eerily, we sent each other VERY similar packages, lol.  Just in different colours!  Without further ado...


I absolutely needed a new work bag, and had been meaning to sew one--and now I don't have to!  A close-up of the lovely pattern:


Also a beautiful, very soft capelet that I will be wearing every day once it warms up (sorry for the blurry pic):


And a flower washcloth, lovely soap, little crocheted birdy pouch, and wooden knitting needles:


Moecantsew is the best!  I'm sooo happy with my stuff!

Woo!  I am SO excited.  There's this ephemera/art/frame store a couple blocks from me, and they have really cheap vintage math and chem flashcards, sold individually.  I want to buy that whole store.  It's a wonderful mix of new and vintage, with tons of strange local art.  Anyway, I was so psyched to see all this retro math/science stuff!

Another thing that I love:  stats.  Well, psych stats.  When I took that course in undergrad, we had to learn to do all the computations by hand before we were allowed to use our calculators.  I developed a love of doing 2-factor ANOVAs by hand--which takes about four pages.  In fact, I've been itching to do some and might even email my old prof and ask her to send me some problems, lol.

And now I'm going to go bounce excitedly until 5pm tomorrow.

I am a Joann's girl!  I live in the city of Chicago, and the only Michael's stores are in the burbs.  I love Joann's for crafts and yarn--but for fabric, they are lousy!  I shop at Hancock Fabrics--the people there really know their stuff, they're very helpful, they have a bigger selection than Joann's, and they'll order you anything you want!  There's also a Vogue flagship store in the closest suburb, so I go there occasionally too.  And best of all, there's a GIANT warehouse called Textile Discount Outlet in the city--it's huge!  I mean, I spent three hours in there, and only explored two of the three floors!  Seriously, if you're close to Chicago and you sew, it's so worth it.

I sent yesterday!  I had a duh moment at the PO, though.  I used the automated machine instead of waiting in the looooong line.  All went well until the end, when I had to go to the big box and put my package in.  I pull the lever.  Nothing.  Seems locked.  I pull again.  I wiggle the lever.  I'm was thinking that this thing probably opens a certain way and if I go ask some postal person will walk up and it will magically open and everyone will look at me like I'm short-bus worthy.  Finally, though, I wandered over to the window and asked.  The guy said, put it in the wall slot that says packages and parcels.
DUH.  It was really obvious.  I is a geenyus.
Anyway, though, it's on its way!

LOL JillBoBill!  I was nine days late, which I suppose doesn't make you feel any better, Jez.  Good luck chasing the little monster out, lol.

I'll probably send out Saturday AM too.  I thought I was going to be able to send earlier, but yeah...rushing around Smiley  It will be out on time, though!  I'm super-excited to send.

Rockhounding?  Is that like finding weird/neat rocks?  The house I grew up in is about a half mile from a creek, and there are all kinds of weird rocks there.  Everytime I go visit, I go down there (with a friend--it's kind of creepy) to look for cool rocks.
I can't wait to get my partner and start crafting.  The cutoff date seems soooo far away.

Ronda, you are so awesome with your progress reports.  Very organised!  I have my medium done, my large almost done, and my small almost done.  I plan to finish everything tonight, provided there are no cat emergencies.  See, the plan was to finish everything LAST night, but my cat has been sick and it got worse, so I had to take her to the vet.  $300 later, found out she has a double ear infection (mild, though) and possibly a thyroid problem (whichever one makes you really skinny) or a kidney problem (less likely).  Now I get the distinct joy of giving eardrops to a cat.  Woo.
But I digress.  I will likely be mailing close to the due date, but it'll be sent on time!

Any psychology nerds?  That's my big area.  I work in mental health, but not in a research capacity, and I do miss conducting studies and things like that.  I am on a biopsychology listserv, so I do get my daily dose of research-related nerdiness.

I also like bugs (as long as they're not trying to injure/frighten me in any way), weird animals, genetics gone haywire (two-headed cows, anyone?), and other strange things.

I'm so excited to do this swap!
