I never in a million years thought I would like the ice and filtered water mechanism on the new fridge. Yep, I have learned that it is a nice feature and not a total waste of space ( and money),considering that we don't need bottled water for the house. I will admit when my whining it wrong. On this topic of discussion, I wasn't correct. ;) and we all know I am all about saving money, really, I am quite cheap.
The raggy thingy is coming along. I am not sure yet if it will be destined for bathroom greatness or guest room living. The final weight will be the determining factor if it can be a shower curtain. Bathroom greatness, ha ha, that sounds just wrong doesn't it. But it is the PERFECT colors for the bathroom.
I have committed to three swaps this fall. I need to stop. I am a swap/exchange addict. I love getting the mailed ones. I love block exchanges in person. In short, I haven't met an exchange I don't like as long as a) everyone follows through and b) the rules are clear.
I don't know why but there is something fun about making things for others and seeing what they did for you -- that is so craftily satisfying. Maybe it is because no one else but a fellow crafter understands the work, the fun and the art of it all.
How many of you like swaps? There are millions out there. Join a group and jump in...word from experience, don't over do it on the joining because there are deadlines. Not guidelines but real deadlines with real people who you made a promise to.
