    I'm in! There are a few I want to do. Guess I should scout my fabric stash and see what falls on top of me...

    Sleepy, you made me giggle. I can just picture myself laying on the floor with a big old pile of scraps that fell all over and holding up a couple scraps saying these will be just perfect. I never have enough of the right scraps. I hate cutting into yards of fabric for small projects.

    We need to mail before the date of the wacky holiday. So that our partner
    can get by the day.

    Really?? That's kinda disappointing. I had planned on one very early in the month but with finishing up my Dec swaps and the holidays that puts a kabosh on that. I see that now that I go back and read it. Bummer.
