swap time!

you all know i love to do fabric swaps.  so does my mail carrier - she's always asking what i'm getting in my squishy packages!  (julie's a doll, i know i've mentioned it but seriously, so sweet and always leaves goodies for the kids in the mailbox)

right now i am checking the box daily for three swaps i'm expecting.  one is a fall colors charm swap,

edit to add - guess what came today?!  yay for new charms! 

another is a christmas i-spy charm swap, and the last is the one i'm most excited for.  it's the yellow, aqua & gray charm swap, sponsored by craft buds and crafty girls workshop!

sneak peek!
28 participants, and this is brilliant - i bought my fabric from crafty girls and (for cheap) she did all the cutting for me, and is also the swap mama - all i have to do is sit and wait for the swap to come in the mail.  also, since we each had to post which fabric we were using, i already can see what i'll be getting - and let me tell you, this is gonna be one gorgeous charm pack! 

i also joined the spoonflower I-spy swap round 2 at crafterhours!  54 participants, each buys 2 yards of spoonflower prints, and we swap 5 inch squares.  at $18 a yard, it's a bit pricey.  luckily, spoonflower offered us a discount!  i've been wanting to try out spoonflower for some time.  plus, the choices are awesome - it was hard to choose two, but i love the ones i picked!

what a fun package of fabric that will be!

ok, if you're still reading, i'd like to know - would you be interested in doing a swap with me?  i'm thinking about a "shades of gray" swap.  gray, black, and white fabrics only.  wanna join?  would you want to do 4 inch or 5 inch charms? leave me a comment with your preferences, and i'll tally the votes and come up with a plan! 

that's all for today - tomorrow is the final day of the X-ACTO pack giveaway, so if you haven't entered, better get 'er done.  it's also guild night, i'll be posting pics of all the challenges!  take care!

I've never done a swap before, but would love to participate. I vote for 5 in charms.

I'd be interested in that... 5 inch for me. Quilt shop quality only... I don't have as many of those colors as I'd like...

I love swaps too. my vote 5" But right now is kind of a busy time of year. When did you plan to do this?
