Swaps and other things...

Amongst the depths of bad headaches this weekend, I've started on some bits that will hopefully turn into a brooch for the swap over at Flowerpress.

Haven't made a brooch like this before, so we'll see how it goes.
I've grasped onto one thing that my swap partner likes, and making that!

And I've just found out about a local Waste Art Exhibition/Competition. There is a textile category for reused/repurposed items. But they are due in at the beginning of June! So i've started ripping up some old sheets and have grand ideas (just thought of it) to crochet plastic bags too. Hoping to use my inability to crochet a flat circle to my advantage again...

PS. Tonight is your last chance to sign up for the Hottie Challenge over at Curlypops. You don't have to make a functioning hot water bottle cover - just a design! Its to raise funds for the Margaret Pratt Foundation Heart & Lung Transplant Trust.x

PPS. Anyway,  I'm hoping for a night where I'm not out in the street at 4am with a mouse inside the vacuum cleaner!  :-o  Fingers are crossed.
