Color Wheel Charm Swap Update
The fabric has been arriving almost daily. I actually didn't receive any yesterday, and my husband feigned shock. Today four came. I am sure my mail man thinks I'm crazy. In addition to all the fabric packages, we have also had several personal packages arrive in the past week. He has come to my door multiple times handing me 4 or 5 packages. I should warn him it will get worse before it gets better.
We are 1/4 of the way there. Fourteen people have sent fabric, and I'm getting really excited with our assortment. I think I'm about done with the international packages. I allowed swappers outside the US to purchase fabric from US shops and have it shipped directly to me, and I would cut them. It's been more work, but my daughter has loved using the scraps in her art creations, and I've added some selvages to my growing collection.
This is the assortment from last week.
Here is what I have received so far this week:
My crate is starting to fill up. I might have to use a second crate before we're done with this.
All the swappers are doing such a great job choosing fabrics to fit their assigned colors. I worried that I was being too specific when I assigned colors, but everyone has come through with some fabulous choices.
