Thrift stores and garage/yard sales!  I grabbed ooooodles of crochet cotton I might use as a core for Homerof2's pacakge.  15$ for what would be the craft store's equivalent of 150$ worth!  boooya.

Oh yeah!  Definantly garage sales.  90% of my yarn stash is from garage sales.


Also, sometimes the dollar stores where everything is a dollar are pretty good too.  We went to one last week.  I bought wood straights knitting needles for a dollar!  Whoo.

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......

I went on a carding spree.  Now just to decide which batt is colorful enough, then get to spinning!

Inspiration without application is moot.

Boy am I glad we have a month and a half left to send because this project I chose is a huge undertaking!   I think it will look pretty awesome when I'm done though, and have to collect a few extras for part 2.

I have completed the smaller item for my partner. Now I am going to pm her to find out what other little things she might like. (candy, tea, etc.) lol. I thought it would take me the entire craft time to be done with school being out (I have 3 school age) and having a crawler under foot. I am starting to look forward to seeing what everyone has come up with for their projects Smiley

I haven't made progress yet on this swap, but I have been housesitting at my daughters and going to Junior hi and elementary graduations, so I'm home now and glad to be!  I am so glad to have family close that I can even live without my computer if necessary!  I did teach my grandauhter how to make a tote bag though and she impressed me!  Now to get busy on this stuff!  But my bed keeps calling to me "I'm more comfortable than a COUCH....You  DESERVE  a nap!!"   Oh, be still!!!

margiej, I have the same problem...but then I have three kids who take the decision out of my hands by waking me up!  Tongue

I purchased some extras today for this swap.  Didn't even know what two of them were till I got to the checkout, and the cashier told me.  Just got them b/c they were __________, and I knew margiej would like them.

Oh, and today I found the teeny-tiny item I needed to finish the main item.  Now, it's just getting DH to help me attach it.
