Time keeps on slipping . . .

Sigh . . . I'm so tired of sitting around. I'm tired of the pain. I'm being very impatient with this, I know, and the urge to be uber whiny is hard to repress.

I've been doing some designing:

Including actually writing down the pattern for my frog and a set of really cute jungle themed bowling pins and balls. I'm very excited about that project and will share it once I get the kinks worked out.

Today I am home alone well Mom gets some much deserved fun on an outing with my aunt. I am catching up on my TV (watching reruns of Grey's and the last season of Heroes) and working on a crochet project that I don't have to think too much about:

I've decided that since I'm sitting here I might as well make some things to be used for gifts next year because as soon as I can walk I'm going to be non-stop. All I can think about is cleaning. I can't wait to get home and organize my craft room, switch out the winter clothes for summer (please let them still fit! I know I'm growing doughy in my convalescence) and basically reacquainting myself with my possessions. (I have a major urge to purge! Spring cleaning mania? Maybe.)

Over at SGS we are thinking about having a late spring swap. If you don't know, there are 5 wonderful ladies "on staff" and we take turns handling the issues depending on who has what going on. I wasn't much help with the last swap due to my back surgery and Heidi and Shara were left to deal with what was definitely our most drama filled swap to date. They both spoke of quitting (and I don't blame them) but I may have convinced them to stick around a bit more. I hate that we had so many problems with flakers, nasty emails and just down right craziness. So we are working on ways to better screen participants. In all honestly, MOST people are great. But it's the small amount who are not that ruin it for everyone. So if anyone has any suggestions on how we can conduct a better swap please leave a comment here or over at SGS. Oh and we are always looking for swap ideas, too!

Stay well . . .

Sorry to hear about swap dilemmas! I have only hosted one... and it will be my last! Your swaps always look like so much fun... I hope that the flakes flake on signing up from now on!

Feel better soon :)
