It's a fine line between 'hobby' & 'mental illness

The more I think about this the more I like the idea!!  I'm planning on getting my current swaps at least 85% done one my days off (can't wait till Tuesday.... can't wait till Tuesday...) and then I should be sending in my questionnaire for this. Smiley

A-ok with personal swaps.

Attempting my first quilt.  English paper piecing.  Sewing together 900 hexagons.

Sounds good!!  I know this will be a lot of fun and I am REALLY excited to see all the things people come up with.  I need to make myself at least a half dozen skirts to satisfy my daughter, (who thinks I need to be more girly like her), and I want them to all be fun and different, so I need ideas ladies!!  Grin

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

This is awesome!  I've started wearing more skirts, and really want to continue and get some new ones.  I have made a few, and although I'd say embellishment isn't my strong suit, I think it'd be fun to try something new.  AND I can finish up my current swap before the deadline to get into this one.  Perfect.

I'm so excited for this swap!! I keep seeing all of these skirts and I think wouldn't it be cool to do this or that and then I realize I have to wait to see what kind of skirt my partner wants!! I've been doing a lot of recons lately and this just fits right in!!

So for now I'm going to go enjoy the beach and patiently count the days till we get our partners. ^_^.

I made a big album of skirt photos for some inspiration. It's in my questionnaire but I wanted to share it here too:
