Lois : You're right at the top of my list. Actually feel like I should send you place mats, china and crystal to go with it, but a Dickie Bird Mat will be just about it.

Lotti, you're 'on' for May. An in-person swap and a visit to the local quilt shop and a cuppa something with your mum. I can't wait! I know she likes fish! Do you want the Dickie Bird Mat to match your new hair-do?

Rosemary, seems like you've turned over a mat, I mean rock here in the lounge...lizards are poking out from everywhere...and you're gonna get one from me, and I don't know when that will be.

Will be thinking of you Lisa, wishing you the best of luck, and we'll do a swap when your back into sewing condition.
Good thinking... Yup it's best to be prepared, when I was supposed to operate my right hand a few years ago, I cooked ahead for a month ( basically just cooked two extra portions with every cooked meal, all individual portions in the freezer... bought a small little frying pan and organized all kinds of things I could handle with my left hand only... Then the operation got cancelled and I could live the easy life for two months :) .
When I broke my foot, I strapped a small pouch to the cast where I could keep the most important things to have with me all he time (phone, pen, Kleenex and a change purse with credit cards and a little money), worked a treat. Purses do not work well when hopping along with crutches..

Oh Lisa I have that food trouble even without spine surgery. All the best hope you mend quick and are able to sew before too long. Get making those bibs.

Booked Rosemary :lol:

I don't think I qualify as a lounge lizard,... yet I would LOVE to participate (I collected website bookmarks for mug rugs last year, think they are so neat!) BUT will have to postpone. I'm going to have my spine surgery in May, which will hopefully relieve the pain that prevents me from getting much sewing done. Between now and then, I have to put first priority on Amy Butler Laminates adult bibs for myself! Yep, :lol: I am thinking ahead to all the stuff I normally bend way forward for (so as not to mess my shirt/chest up), that I will not be able to bend forward for after surgery. Little things like eating, brushing teeth... So I plan to make a pattern for a large adult-woman bib, that has a gusseted catch-pocket along the bottom edge for the things that fall off my spoon, and bounce down my chest to my lap!

I may make a "hip holster" with pockets to carry light things too... I'll be restricted to lifting <2 pound items, but since my hips are below the surgery site, I think I should be able to carry things on my hips and keep my hands free for the walker or the cane or whatever.

Don't know how soon I'll be able to sit at the sewing machine after May... please may I look for mug rug exchange takers this summer or fall? Oh, and please wish me luck... this is usually safe, but it's still risky surgery. I am very hopeful for getting my active life back :D Although I will have to be smarter about doing things that could re-damage my back, or undo the scoliosis repair. Hehe, guess that's obvious, silly me!

I'm definitely in, def. a lounge lizard and ready to swap with my friends here...

As Patti and I are only just joining the official swap page, I suggest I'll swap with you first Patti... If that's ok with you ;)

Terrie, if you'd like, I would love to drop one off for you in person during May/June when I'm in Canada...
And I'm open for more swaps during the year...
Fab fab fab :lol: :lol: :lol:

By 'lounge lizards' I was thinking of anyone who habitually lounges around the forum nattering to all and sundrie, and likes/needs to keep warm by basking next to the light of their sewing machine on a pile of quilts. I also said that I wasn't being exclusive about it only being open to LL's, if you wander about the forums reading about what is going on then you are invited to join in the mayhem!

Hey Wendy, can I book July for a swap with you, since you seem to be allocating months?

Marilyn, I doubt that I will ever be passing (unless I win the lottery) but are you up for a swap in May?

I think I had better stop here for the time being, but don't worry I will be back for more swaps later...
