This swap sounds amazing from the details. Unfortunately I am all swapped out and I have no idea what this swap is actually about. I guess I should get reading! Good luck with finding participants Smiley

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Every body wants a rock to wind a piece of string around.

They are really good books. The characters are well developed, and the plots are interesting.  A good place to start the Vorkosigan books is either _Warrior's Apprentice_ or _Young Miles_ (an omnibus that has two books and a novella), or _Cordelia's Honor_ (omnibus that has the two prequels to _Warrior's Apprentice_). 
If you're into fantasy, _Curse of Chalion_ is a really interesting book, and if you like fantasy/romance, _The Sharing Knife: Beguilement_ is the first of that series (the third book just came out last week). 

What I really like about them is that they're enjoyable to read, with occasional poignant moments and a sense of humor (I rarely re-read things that don't make me smile or laugh while I'm reading). Lois McMaster Bujold is a great author.  Smiley 

I hope I get a few people to join.  If not, I suppose I can just make myself something instead.  It's more fun to swap, though.  Smiley

Am I delusional, or was there another version of this swap a couple months ago that disappeared?  I remember looking at it and considering doing it for my first swap, but deciding that I wasn't sure what I'd make, and I couldn't think of anything I'd really want to receive.  Maybe one of those old earth mini-planet jewelry pieces, only I don't think we have the technology for that yet...

But I totally want to be just like Cordelia when I grow up.

In fact, I did put up this swap a few months ago, but as the response was similar to what I've gotten this time so far, we decided to postpone it in hopes that more people would sign up this time around.  No such luck so far.. Sad

I thought about the mini planet jewelry sets, too, as well as a hair clip with a new and improved butterbug. 

I'm not sure I want to be like them when I grow up, but I'd sure love to have conversations with pretty much any of Bujold's characters.

Sansa, it's the last day of sign ups (I figured I'd close them out around this time tomorrow).  Do you want me to extend it a few more days in hopes of getting a third (or maybe fourth) person?  I know at least two people have said that current circumstances are preventing them from participating, but there were a few more that have not responded one way or the other.
