I think we all understand, Imagine.  Waiting to get partners is the hardest part of the swap...for me anyway.

And yes, dragonflyducky, my bag of alpaca fiber weighs just under 3 pounds, and is a beautiful mix of grey, black and brown from an alpaca named Guy.  It's my first time buying the whole fleece, so it was quite the splurge.  Someday, it is going to be a sweater.

Its good having a long sign up period cos it means it gives everyone time to finish swaps or organise lives, its sucks having a long sign up period cos you got to wait soooo looooong  Tongue
Either way, better to have it long and then shorten it if it has to be then have it short and noone able to join  Cheesy
Jeez I wouldnt know what to do with that much fiber lol, I cant spin, knit or crochet  Undecided it probly end out using it as stuffing... and it being really expensive stuffing  Roll Eyes lol

Hmmm, I'm 2/3 of the way through my last swap commitment and I swore I wouldn't sign up for any more swaps till I painted the bathroom...More incentive to get the blasted bathroom DONE!

No theme yet, it's currently a hideous early 80's wallpaper in beige & terracotta :p I'm going to do the walls white and a cornflower blue with yellow accents. My girls have a pretty extensive rubber ducky collection, some will be moved to display along with a few other rubber ducky things that are not tub friendly. I figured the blue, white & yellow could grow up into classic French Country switching out the ducks for toile when they are older.

Hey I had a rubber ducky themed bathroom when I lived at my parents! (I still have some accessories in my current bathroom like the shower curtain and the mini carpet) It was mainly a pale yellow and on the bottom half of the wall we put a white wallpaper with light blue and light yellow checked pattern. They have tons of accessories at Zellers (Canadian Target) for this theme!

Oh I've always been fond of sheep. I grew up on the very edge of the burbs, our neighborhood bordered a huge ranch untill high school when they finally sold out. That family had horses & Angora goats. There were several sheep & goat farms very close to town.
It's funny Texas has a very different opinion of what is considered "domestic" from most states. Chickens, ducks, turkeys, goats, sheep, horses and cattle are perfectly legal to have in your backyard in a neighborhood provided you meet the acreage requirements set by the state and deed restrictions allow (I think it's 1.5 acres for one horse or cow, and the deed restrictions spececificly have to disallow). So if I really, really wanted a sheep in my backyard, I could have it! Cuts down on mowing! There are a few rather posh neighborhoods in town where lots of people have horses, jumpers & such, not rodeo ponies.

Did you know Texas exports more Angora wool than any place else in the world? Cheesy

I wish I could have a sheep!  Detroit doesn't allow anything cool like that....not that my yard right now would be big enough...
