    I like to do something different, so like you I spend hours surfing the net for anything fun that catches my eye. Then I print a bazillion pages LOL! I now have a file cabinet full of "want to do's" that I will never have enough time to make . (sigh) ..maybe someday!

    Hi Lynnie,
    I have a ton of great ideas for a new swap subject. But, I have to stop for now and get caught up on some of the ones I have hosted.

    The pincushions are all over the web! The major magazines all have some free patterns, I have a few that I have bought from bunnyhill and other designers sitting up there waiting for the day I have time. Pinterest has some cute things once in a while. (Love that site!) It seems to me that the is an overload of inspiration out there. Oh... also check out the major pattern companies patterns or the embroidery sites. I have a few I like of those. The quilt store should have tons of ideas. Did you google them?

    Well... Have a great day.

    I like to wait until I get some sort of crazy idea, then I'll see if it works. If not, then I try to do something "normal."

    i try to think of something new. i enjoy the designing, and then the engineering to make it happen. i rarely surf for ideas, unless i'm not sure what the swap item is to begin with, or what size it should be.
