Hi everybody! I miss you guys!
We pulled out of our financial tailspin at last, but we are still recovering from the really bad year-and-a-half we just had. I'm still not ready to swap again, but I'll drop in to say hi more often.
I've just started twining rag rugs, and it's addictive. I want to twine ALL THE THINGS! I made a smallish rug loom out of junk, and I plan to make a few more sizes. The rugs are super thick and heavy, and perfect for an old house. I will be working my way through my current craft obsession, and then I'll go back to making things that are more mail-able.
I hear ya! I debated if I should join this swap or not myself because although super fun, it costs money to ship and buy supplies! I probably shouldn't have, but I figured as long as I don't take any orders requiring me to go to the fabric stores and make sure to only trade for things I will use to make things for my etsy shop and try to make money back.....oh who am I kidding....I have a craft addiction and I couldn't resist! But I am trying to stay frugal this round so my wallet doesn't regret it too much. Although this might be my last swap for a while so I can start being responsible with my monies, just had to squeeeeeze one more in
