I am contemplating joining this swap, but I will be headed back to the uk for grad school and my stash primarily stays in the states.... hmmm....

We've got another participant in the UK, who'd love to send within the UK. Smiley  And you wouldn't need a ton of supplies for a medium and three smalls ...

Inside a dog it's too dark to read.

Oh! I just thought of one. A tea cozy.. or, in my case, I want a tea kettle insulator sort of thing. I heat up the tea kettle on the woodstove and I'd love to take it off the stove (wood or regular stove), put the little cozy on it and have it stay warm for a bit. At least enough to get my to my second cup of tea. :-)

I will add it to The List.

I'm really, really hoping for reusable snack bags for my purse.  That'll kill 2 birds with one stone:  1.  I won't be tempted to spend $ I can't afford on snacks if I get too hungry while I'm out.  2.  Whatever I pack in them will certainly be healthier for me than any fastfood junk.

I'm hoping for something similar for my car!  I keep veering off into Drive Thru Land, which is making my wallet and my arteries very unhappy ...

I've never done a swap before, but I love to craft, and I especially love being frugal!  Is it okay for me to send in an application?

(I've been stalking the swap board for awhile now.. and it seems too fun to pass up!  Grin)

Absolutely!  We've got a couple other new swappers, too!  Smiley

I made some of those snack bags...turned out cute!  I had some leftover PUL fabric and used it to make a waterproof lining.   Wink

I've been thinking about things that I would like. 

I really, REALLY need a method of organizing my patterns.  Right now they're in a big bin and in order to find what I'm looking for, I have to rifle through the whole bin. 

Why just this very afternoon I had to run out to the fabric store and buy a pattern that I KNOW I already have....somewhere.  (Apparently I need a bigger bin)

Grrr........
