Just one day after I wrote a whiny, self-pitying post about being an exchange orphan, I get an email from this nice lady in Hawaii. She's my One-Skein Secret Pal exchange Angel. She's really cool, and chatty, and has doggies, and seems to be planning a move to live in Portland.
What fun! I like her a lot already. Gosh, if she only sends me emails, never mind yarn, I think I'm still ahead of the game.
And I still didn't sew on any buttons.
Twig suggested and Judy seconded the bribery method of motivation. Sew on a button: buy more yarn. I may be going with this. At least it's better for my health than the baked goods or ice cream method of motivation.
