  1. Oooooohhhh! That's some nice looking yarn!!!
  2. Another great package! Thank you all for being such a great group of swappers!!
  3. Just a quick reminder for those who haven't shipped yet that the mailing deadline is this Friday (11/8/13)!!!
  4. I'd agree about overall board participation being down. I'm not here nearly as much any more, but that has more to do with life circumstances than the board format. You hit the nail on the head, methinks. Board participation is down due to social media. Forums don't seem to be doing as well with the advent of Facebook and Twitter, etc.
  5. All of swap participation has been way down this year. The ami swap is usually packed and it was pretty light, too. It makes me sad.
  6. Welcome magiccrochetfan! I have your survey so you no longer have an option. You're swapping!!
  7. Unless we get another swapper today, it looks like it's going to be a swap between the three of you.
  8. I'm surprised, too. In the past is has been fairly popular.
  9. Calling all swappers!! Come on....sign up, you know you want to!
  10. To swap or not to swap that is the question!
  11. The purple yarn is goregous! That yarn is going to make a fabulous shawl. Perfect package, kidge...perfect! I love it all very, very much!!
  12. Please forgive my tardiness for getting these pictures posted. Life has been crazy busy since we got back from our honeymoon. I love everything so much. I was shocked to see such a nice Red Wings bag as my tote!! There was also some trail mix included, but I ate that already. I cannot wait to make my Hazel shawl...now to find some free time!
  13. Smith isn't currently able to get on the forums. I'll send her an email and copy you. Thanks.
