The yarns are beautiful! Glad to see you back with all of your lovely yarns for weaving and knitting!

 I found a cool way to destash some of my stuff: wandering flat rate box! ha ha Some of the mods and I are filling a flat rate box of supplies we no longer want/use--shipping it off...the next person takes out what they want, fills it back up, and ships to the next person...I only pulled out what I knew I would use and then filled up with more than what I took out (I think! Cheesy)...a great way to destash! Cheesy

I managed to use some Christmas papers that I bought a few years ago...some yarn, some old scarves...loads of pics later tonight! Cheesy

I have been making junque journals for years...only I called them my inspiration or ideas books Cheesy...I keep a box of cards, tickets, pics, things I like...and periodically, I glue them all together with papers I like...I love the idea of gluing in yarns I love or ribbons I love!  They can be as complicated or as simple as you want...

I can already tell this is going to be a fun filled swap!

Two partners!!!  I rarely get to swap any more so it is great to have a fun one!

One of my partners can't have chocolate mailed but thank goodness Hershey makes tons of other candies! Cheesy

Even after years of sewing and quilting, I get cutting anxiety! Cheesy

I received an awesome box of miscellaneous goodies from a mod buddy and inside was something perfect for my extra!!!

This is definitely going to be my go-to apron gift for Christmas presents!  I am plotting the fabrics to use for my best friends...Have fun everyone!

DING DING DING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We have a winner!

Post number 4538 was the random post number since I accidentally used the original one of 4500! ha ha

The usual drill--I will contact you in a bit.... YAY!  I was hoping for another winner since Silvermoon let me know she received her random prizes already!

I love that a much loved pair of PJ's was used!  Fabric lives on for another life! YAY!  Also, I love the idea of a larger size to store other goodies...I could stash my sleeping t-shirt into a pillow sized one!

I think there are going to be more hungry monsters made than there are swappers...ha ha--they are like potato chips!! Cheesy

My awesome boss (me) gave the employees the rest of the afternoon off...Cheesy  Don't tell, but I am going home to make stuff Cheesy

You can tell by your face how proud you are of your accomplishment!  I turned out lovely...the shrug is also cute...a talented family!

Lucky for you to have a boyfriend that has a good sense of fun!

I hope you will be making more things for yourself!

Can't wait to start cutting and sewing this weekend!  Glad you had a good trip silentblair--that the wee ones got the good vibes we were sending you! Cheesy

Keep on knitting...the old adage, use it or lose it, works for arthritis!  I try to knit or crochet daily to keep my hands limber and pain free...also, doing dishes by hand in hot soapy water does wonders...if I can push myself away from my crafting area! Cheesy

Just a reminder to any newbies...be sure to read  the rules on swapping...you cannot join a swap unless you have been a member for one month and have 15 posts...

Here is a link to all of the rules of swapping:

That1girl--I just love that hat!  My nephew and niece have dredlocks and love hats that will fit over them in the winter! Did you use any particular pattern? Cheesy

melerific--those are adorable pillow cases! What a lovely gift!

Alisha!!!! how exciting! I have had my Brother embroidery/sewing machine for three years and I am still learning...I use it to sew but thanks to certain unnamed people here (cough: waggonswest), I am venturing more into the machine embroidery!

fishstix--good score on that dressform...I think people buy and then realize they don't use them as much as they thought...I left mine when I moved because it was so old and worn out...I could use a new one myself! Cheesy

I am easy on you guys...basically, if you make it in August and September, it will probably be finagled into a fall project! Cheesy
