What are you making?  I have a small box of tiny crochet thread that I was just going to use for embroideries...it came with a lot of small needles as well...the smallest is size 14!  I can barely see the hook!  I would like to try a project but I have no idea what...I am not really into doilies...

trina--what a good use of the textured paper!  I have several rolls of the stuff from redecorating my previous home...it was great to cover up bumpy walls and paneling back then...I have tried to think of projects to do with it...thanks for sharing your idea...the textures really do pop with the paint you used!  and, adding additional embellishment is wonderful!

plenty of time to send out, folks!  I was just afraid I would get busy with my other swaps and forget/not be able to find the cloths I made! Cheesy

I have basically put all of my yarn away for the spring/summer...time to garden and sew! Cheesy

Lovely job on the cushion cover...the crocheted acorns really add a whimsical touch!

I am a carb addict as well ... I feel your pain...you might benefit from a detox...I mean, a food addiction is a lot like a drug addiction...you almost need to go cold turkey!  I found that after three days of misery and cravings, where I almost begged my husband to lock me in my room, I all of a sudden felt in control and did not want to "blow" it...I started back from detox by eating mostly veggies, then chicken and fish, and then lastly fruits...I was afraid to add carbs back in, but I did--beans and lentils, then whole grains...my rule was not to eat anything "white"...white rice, white bread, white sugar etc.

Yeah, I fell off and on the wagon but wanting to be healthy and slimmer was way more appealing to me...I made myself a little "reminder" card to help me not fall off the wagon...and I got a buddy--just like in drug detox...seriously, doesn't this sound like AA or something?

It is still a struggle, but each day, I remind myself that I do not want to go back to being over 200 pounds and miserable...you can be whatever weight you want that makes you happy...I am not judging here...I just knew I was miserably unhappy and struggling with knee and back problems, self-esteem problems, etc.

So, I say, just like those quit smoking commercials, try again...and again...until something hits you and keeps you on the path you want!

This is healthy eating...not dieting...your physical, mental and spiritual health!  Do it for yourself, hawks!

Mare--you meal looks delicious...I love quinoa...it would be wonderful to have leftovers for the next day's lunch!  And, how lucky for you to have a farm share of yummy veggies!

I have a great recipe to share after I figure out how to cut out some of the calories...it is veggies but even broccoli can be unhealthy if you prepare it with unhealthy things! Cheesy  I need to research the calories a bit before I deem it as healthy!

mellybelly!!! So excited!  I will get my pinterest link to you (it is on my profile, I think!)...I really don't have a lot of things pinned only because I forget! Sad

I am excited to stalk and get ideas...I think that is my favorite part of swapping!

oh--and bonus...maybe you could get your father to pose with the cushion I send! Wink

Very cute!  Now you need a whole flock! Cheesy

The background almost looks like a meadow with lots of spring flowers...

We should do a messy home swap...ha ha..I bet there are tons of sayings and tips out there to enjoy our creative clutter and not so tiny homes!  I do know a few crafting friends that have very neat and tidy houses because they enjoy working in that environment...but, they still have to let something go...I am guessing that it might be sleep! Cheesy

I made a few things for a couple of swaps...they should arrive this week so I can post more pics...

According to the PO site, TroubleT should receive by Wednesday! Cheesy

I had to ship now as I am trying to stay on top of many things are the April 17th tax deadline approaches--gaahhhhhhh--almost there!

I am still working on dishcloths for the craftalong as well...I am up to seven for myself...I can't wait to see what everyone has done as I would love to try new patterns and fun colors...mine are kind of ugly as I am using up scraps from other projects...
