You are very generous, TSM!

I know that sometimes I take it for granted that no one would want all the "jumbled" bits that I have around, but if a person is a new craftster or has limited money, those jumbled bits are very welcomed...and, I am always amazed when I see projects made from them...I know I have sent out fabric scraps that have become mug rugs, teesha moore projects, etc.  It feels great to know someone else can use what I have collected in my life!

I have an idea for those with heaps of yarn but short attention spans  Wink (yes Im still destashing, its just mostly been for swaps) here in NZ theres a clothing chain called Glassons who have called out to all knitters (Im hoping crocheters too) for scarves. What they will do, for every scarf you make (at about 1.5-1.8m in length) they will sell them in their stores for $25 and ALL the proceeds go to the Quake relief here for the Christchurch earthquake. So if you want to destash and get the warm fuzzies, whip up some scarves, you can send them to me if youd like and Ill drop them off, or I can get hold of their head offices PO address and you can send right there  Cheesy

I keep wishing I could be a good giver in the giver and needers swap, but my package would just be a big jumble of stuff.  From small segments of fabric (I don't think I have a piece that's bigger then 1 meter :*( ) I only have a couple untouched skeins of yarn,  unprocessed fleeces and small chunks of colored roving, a couple handfuls of beads......... I'll try for next time and see if anyone wants a jumbled "try out multiple crafts package....
I know I must be one of the people that gave them problems matching up. My sewing box to give is stuff like 'random small cross stitch kits, crochet thread, some floss, a couple of hoops, small bits of fabric for scrappy projects, a little fabric paint, a couple of craft books....' You get the idea. I had to add 'This is what I have to give if anyone wants a box filled by a magpie'. But I figured getting a box full of odd supplies is better than getting no supplies, and hopefully someone could make use of it.
Do try for next time. Heck, a 'try out multiple crafts' box sounds like fun!
Sigh....I haven't done any crafting besides making a nifty valentine card, and mending a couple of necklaces for my daughter. Hopefully after I've given stuff away and made room, I'll be inspired to make use of the rest.

I'm SO MAD I didn't get it together in time for the givers and needers swap. Phooey.
I just got back from the Dr and grocery shopping and I am just pooped. Oh man. Maybe a cup of tea will perk me up enough to get down into that mess and sort it out a bit more. Blah.
