No...we know it's because you just feel sorry for the other button holes - cuz they only have 1. We understand.:thumbup:

I'm new to this swap this year so need to ask: What is the deal with the "hole"? What hole are you all talking about? Is this some sort of virtual game?

Here's the link to last year's:

Looks like the lady who hosted it hasn't been active on the boards since January. Last year's sign-up deadline was Oct. 5th.

sewbizgirl, here's what I wrote about the hole earlier on this thread. (Sorry to repeat for those who've already seen it.)

Just have to tell you all something funny that happened today. I think a lot of the newbies here -- and maybe some repeat SSers don't really "get" the concept of the hole. I posted earlier today that I was headed there to kick my feet up with a mimosa. So what was I really doing during that time? Cleaning the bathrooms! There I was with the brush in my hand scrubbing the bowl thinking how glad I was that I could at least be enjoying my virtual mimosa at that moment. The hole is all in good fun with no calories, no hangovers, and lots of great company; you can't beat that!

I think our hostess, Terri, started the hole as a punishment when posters were naughty (long before I first took part in the SS swap) and needed to be put into the timeout corner. But those creative quilters just turned that on its head and made it into the most popular place to be for everyone in the swap. Not that some of those in there aren't naughty, as you'll find out soon enough...

Like bookmarks, love buttons, no zippers, no Christmas items, love Mug Rugs and homemade items. Would like to try the Wonder clips, don't have any. Love sewing notions, always need seam ripper. No pin cushions, have many, love fuzzy socks.

First time doing this swap and didn't know to list your wants and not wants. Hope this will help my SS.

CoodyIN, thanks for the info. Thought that was the problem but also thought maybe someone else took it over and I just didnt see it.

For those of you that participated in the past years Good news. I have asked Admin if I could host one this year and once I get everything written down I will be posting signups, Hopefully by end of tomorrow.

So sad I missed the deadline for the SS here this year. Things have just been crazy here and time flew by before I realized it. All is good though. I can still read all the post and of course jump in the hole when I am feeling a little slanted. LOL
