    I posted it in the mug rug swap and the table runner swap, and I've been talking about it in chat. Elisabrat, if you know people doing others that will let us post it there, by all means, pass it around all you can! I'm afraid I don't know the doll quilt people, and I'd hate to pop in unannounced and ask to post in their swap. So, everyone tell someone else! It's a bring a friend swap! I'm joking, it's not, but do bring your friends!

    Yes, I will be participating. I just haven't added myself to the list yet, lol. I want to be in the middle of the list somewhere, and I have to decide what room to ask for first. I've had "open" for rooms on the sign ups, but I fear leaving it too open and it keeping my partner from being able to decide what to make me. I'm an accountant, and leaving that many choices isn't in my nature, lol.

    whoo whoo! another member of the swapperoos! Hi Traci!! Sock monkeys? have you seen the sock bunnies for easter? they are made with like pastel socks and the ears cracked me up. donkeys and owls.. have you been watching like some kid movies and getting things mixed up there? swap junkies are fat free. no health issues ever arose from being a swap junkie. I love the suprise coming in the mail. I also get some goofy thrill out of the quick turn around rewards. You my dear are not alone

    I think you should do livingroom dustysmom or your kitchen. Go for kitchen stretch your senders thinking box. go wild! pick only like leopard prints with plaids .. now that would challenge me. only cause i dont have any leopard print fabric. not a single animal skin print. and they are SO popular and in this year.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Tracibug, we'd be happy to have you! I'll be watching out for your info & welcome!

    Elisabrat, I really don't have anywhere in my living room to put much home decor, unless it's a throw blanket. I live with a minimalist who picked out and decorated this house with the expectation that he was going to be a bachelor. Not to mention, our house is not very well thought out, so we don't have much storage. I have a whole storage unit full of girly stuff though, china, crystal, curio cabinet full of Precious Moments, wall full of family photos, wreaths & other things to hang up on the wall. The only thing that's hung up in our house, since moving in July 2006, is a big mirror by the front door. I did 2 paintings I want to put in the dining room of Italian villa doors (we had a cool place here called Sips N Strokes for a while where you could go & they would walk you through painting the picture of the night). I think they'll still fit in with what we have going on with the new placemats in there, but I just haven't hung them yet. I have another painting I did of a vase that I could hang somewhere if I could ever decide where.

    As for the kitchen, well who ever has enough potholders? I could also use placemats for the kitchen table, or a runner for our bar. I'm not into animal prints though.

    I signed up, and very excited about coming up with something. I was a nurse, now a stay at home mom to my 2 year old Beau, 3 year old Jayla, almost 7 year old Marin on school breaks (she lives in VA with her mom), and ohr two English mastiffs; Jed and Mac. My house is eclectic mess! I have pigs in my kitchen, I went to the University of Arkansas so I'm kinda fond of them and a big fan of the University of Alabama. ROLL TIDE! I also like chickens because I used to have some, hopefully I will get more after we move. I would have to say my favorite color is green, any shade, but emerald green is my favorite (Green is also my maiden name). We are moving into a travel trailer at the end of this year for about two years as our house gets built, that will be a adventure. I'm new to quilting but I have been sewing for years! Looking forward to see what I can decide on because I have so many ideas!!!!

    Welcome ladies! Bring a friend & let's have some fun! There's over 90 people signed up for the mug rug swap, and we're currently at 6, not counting me. I'm not sure I'd know what to do with a group THAT big, but it's going to be fun to see all the creativity when the pics start going up!

    I've had someone join who has a need for their item to come from a non-smoking home due to health issues, so I'm going to add a question for smoking/pet free home to the signups (since I didn't think about that when I did the original list). I'll PM everyone who is already signed up for this info so I can add it to my spreadsheet as well.

    I started my new job today. Everything went well, but I'm a firm believer that there's only so much you can squeeze into a brain in one day before it gets tired, and it's a tired day. A little rest, then I have to get on my sewing so I can finish 2 of the projects by next Wednesday for their trip to Denmark.

    Thank you Kiffie! I love those colors together too! The placemats were supposed to be a surprise, until the intended recipient mentioned wanting a teapot cozy and my boyfriend says "Well maybe she can make you one to match the placemats she made you." So I whipped one up in the last couple days before we left to visit them. Now I'm making a matching wrap for the teapot handle, because with the cover on it, it gets too hot to pick up when you want a refill. She'll want potholders to match or something like that next, I'm sure. Thankfully it's a stock fabric at Joanne and I have extra.
