A Bit of ThiS & ThAt

A few months back I joined in the "Random Act of Kindness" (RAK) group organised by Maree from On My Verandah and on Monday I posted off my package. Now I'll just have to wait and see if my unaware recipient likes what I sent her. With this type of project it makes it FuN to wait to see if the mailman will deliver a RAK to me, so the daily chore to the box at around noon is with anticipation. Of course it could take months if ever for me to receive a random act of kindness... but that's OK.. as I get a lot of enjoyment out of sending.
The lovely Crafty Pug had a giveaway of some magazines on her blog and I was LuCkY enough to WiN.
I have already found a few projects that I've added
to my "To Do" list.
So a big ThAnK YoU to Crafty.

Please see earlier post of Feb 15th (or use "exchange" in the  search tab on my sidebar) or click here for details if you are interested and have not registered your name with me. It should be a quick and easy swap and a whole lot of FuN! We have 28 players so far so you could swap with your neighbour or someone from around the world.
How GooD is ThAT!

Spread the word... the more the merrier!  : )
I will email names on March 16th... and please remember to keep it to yourself... sshh.. it's a secret!
EnJoY !

I read this in a magazine somewhere....
Allow yourself down time, to daydream... stare at your fabric... ideas need incubation time!
Enter a swap or competition. Nothing like a deadline to motivate creative production and stretch creative vision...

Oh I so agree with your last lines. This is why I love swaps. A chance to create, try a new technique, try a new fabric or color, try a new block - fun sewing time.
