(Shades of Grey Charm Square Fabric Swap update!)
The envelopes have started arriving! Today my mailbox was stuffed full. I have never had so much fun going down to get the mail! Will you all keep sending me packages even after the swap is over?! just kidding...
First, the administrative stuff:
I have started a discussion thread on Flickr listing whose envelopes I've received. I will try to update it every day if I can, but at least every other day. Sometimes life (and by life, I generally mean a 3.5-year-old and 1-year-old, and that fun little thing called a day job) fills up every minute of my day/night.
If you signed up for the swap, are reading this post, and haven't received the email with my address and other details yet, please leave me a comment. I sent an email out a few days ago and I want to make sure everyone has the information they need.
Now on to the fun stuff...what are you going to do with your charm squares?
I started this swap with absolutely no idea in mind--I just thought it would be fun to do. But then I saw this design by Lindsay's mom over at the Cottage Home last week, and right now it's at the top of my list. I'm thinking about pairing the grays with lime/bright greens--either solids or scrappy, from my stash (unless someone wants to host a "shades of green" swap???).
If you've got a pattern in mind for your squares, please add it to the Flickr page (I started a "Design Ideas" topic).
Eagerly awaiting the mail lady's arrival tomorrow....
