Waterfalls
It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

YARN!

Exciting is that my friend Catherine facilitates estate sales and she says there's almost ALWAYS bunches of yarn left when folks pass on. And the prices it sells for?

50 cents per new unused skein
25 cents per ball or partially used skein
10 cents for partially finished projects, regardless of size

I'm going to be ROLLING in yarn. I've authorized Cat to spend up to $100 a month on yarn until I tell her to stop.

She also gets a bit of polymer clays and polymer clay tools.. for example, Atlas Pasta Machines that they sell for about $5 each. Those are EXPENSIVE! I'll be buying up all of those they get and reselling them on ebay or whatever for $15 or so, and they'll be a bargain at that price.

But the yarn is what has me dancing in my chair!

Brat. :-)

Could you ask her about scrapbooking/cardmaking supplies? I'd be in the market for those, depending on what/how much.

Although, odds are good she nabs all of that for herself, she's a scrapbooking DEMON :)

From my calculations, 200 skeins of yarn (providing you get sufficient amounts of various skeins for completing EACH project) means that you'll be making at least 10 sweater per month?

I'll be looking forward to the posts on your progress. :)

Of course, I'm also still working on the quilt I'm making for you and D as a (re)Housewarming gift. You might get it around your 25th anniversary!

Way Kewl! Once spring starts again, i'm likely to start checking out estate sales, myself.

I'd be interested in a pasta machine, since Mo has expressed and interest in polymer clay crafting.

If such a machine can be cleaned sufficiently to be returned to pasta duty, I'd be happy to grab a second one ... Especially if it's the kind that's an attachment to a KA mixer.

Will let you know. Friends get them for what they cost me. :D
