I'm doing a bit of recycling and re-purposing for this swap. Smiley It's great fun! Cheesy I realised I love turning old everyday "throw-it-out" items into something special Smiley (Dont worry, its not like, old underwear or anything gross! Lol!)

I love re-purposed/recycled things (I know you're not crafting for me, but I just felt I wanted to share that!).  We live in such a throw-away society, it's great that old things are given a new lease of life.

I tried books on audio for awhile but just couldn't get into it.

I watch way too much TV cause I can't just sit there and knit!

Me neither!  And, thanks for the tip MiLady, but most radio annoys me (they don't play the music I like.  But yes, I do have lots of CDs, spotify etc...)  But, I think I've cracked it now hahahahah!!!! (crazy laugh!) I will not be defeated!! (if I sound a little drunk, it's because I am.  But my typing skillz are still functional hurrah!)

I've had a bit of a crafting mare this evening for this swap and it's taken me alot longer to sort out one item than I thought (see PMs littlebluegirl)

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

This swap is kicking my butt. Every time I think I have it figured out something goes wrong. I either don't have something that I need or it just isn't going the way I planned.
I think I am going to start again from scratch. Time to brain storm again!
Hey Rangerbeth everything I said is out LOL I'm starting from scratch!
I think I will take a look at your wists and etsy favorites again  Undecided

Sorry  you're having such a rough time Shelina! Hopefully the next attempt will work out better.

As a reminder: send outs are the 17th. That gives you nine days left.

I have one major project underway. Everything came to a screeching halt when I discovered that nowhere in my house did I have a spool of white thread!!  I typically sew with dark colored fabrics and so I had to do a little reworking to make it work with navy thread! I am just calling it artistic license and a necessary part of the project!! For my second  project, which really should be sewn in white also!, I will have to come up with something else! Can I borrow some from my sister, a fellow craftster?! she lives next door!
