Ridiculous amount of fun at Swaporamarama

We had tons of fun as a family, met lots of nice people all getting extremely creative, caught up with some of the local crafty community, and I personally felt like I was getting something grand for nothing. I came home with some nice silk ties, a couple of skirts for my daughter, some floral cotton drapes that will be mined as doll raw material and several completed projects. My husband found a nice shirt.

Jayn (8) had a wonderful time making two critters thanks to the Monster Madness station and all stuff supplied.

"Cookie Owl" and the bunny were both t-shirts in another life. She was very excited to be filmed by these guys.

James made himself a monster too and then found a nice kilt pin attached to a skirt going begging. My soft doll project is still going - once upon a time a girl's dress - but I did dash off a toasty scarf out of a knit fabric jacket and the trim from the bottom of an outdated skirt.

It was a cool venue, and an amazing number of sewing machines were out for everyone. It sure made me realize how much easier sewing is when you have a nice wide table for cutting out on!

Here's my new friend Sonya Nimri staffing a design workstation. Sorry about the blurry photo!

I hope they do it again, and I encourage everyone to look out for a Swaporamarama in your area.

Thanks for the great post about Swap! I remember seeing your cute little girl come in because she was excited to hear about the plushie station. This is great to see her finished projects! :-) Love the bloodshot eyes monster too!
Look for another Swap in November.
