to swap or not to swap { & giveaway winner announced! }

Friday, March 19, 2010

heather & kerri are at it again!
{the brains behind the pillow swap}

they have just started a new swap.

so the questions is..
to swap?.. or not to swap?

i had a ton of fun with the pillow talk swap...
but i'm in 2 bees.. and told myself with everything else that takes up my time.. that i had to say no to swaps for a while... but when i said that.. i didn't know they were gonna start this one!

eek!

i mean look at all the ideas people are coming up with!


{heather's flickr mosaic}

{kerri's flickr mosaic}

and there are more ideas here in the flickr pool...

so now i have to decide.
before the march 22nd sign up date...
if i'm gonna swap.. or sit this one out...
what would you do??

Me three! I'm in 2 bees, I participate in a mini-quilt swap, AND I absolutely could not pass up the Urban home goods swap. It's a wonderful, talented group they have going and I can't wait to get my partner's info and get started!

Lexilooo said...

Wow, those are all amazing! I am nowhere near that talented!

Needled Mom said...

Oh sure....just ONE more!

I had the discipline to pass right away but now that I've seen the mosaics def want in next time around...but am going to stand my decision and do my darnest to get a bit more ahead!

quiltcetera said...

Sheesh. I JUST finished a swap and told myself, NO MORE! But look at those pics....

Sandy said...

Fabric addictions are ok, No calories,no serious side effects, much more acceptable than drug,alcohol or food addictions.. Oh go for it.. swap away:)

LOL, well its certainly not about having or buying more fabric to play in such a fun swap! But I am just so far behind on my quilt plan for the year and just finished a swap that I am taking a deep, deep breath and still saying NO!

Rebekah said...

skip the swap and make something for yourself...you'll enjoy it more and get to pick out and make exactly what you want :)

I've had to limit my swapping now to quilt bees only - it just takes away so much time from my other commitments :)

Girl....jump in and join! You will regret it later...:0)

Monica said...
