Okay I make wool soakers, I have had them up for sale, but they aren't selling and frankly I am so bummed and unmotivated to make more until these are out of here, I want to get them out. So they are up for grabs FREE.<br><br>
I need SOMETHING to make me feel better (I tend to battle depression so I have to pull out of the funk before it gets that far) and the one thing that makes me feel better is making others happy. SO I have:<br>
1 med/large (18-30 lbs or so) fall color soaker:<br><a href="http://www.yesmaamslings.com/cushiestore/html/images/brnlgbig.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.yesmaamslings.com/cushies...s/brnlgbig.jpg</a><br>
1 med (16-25 or so) fall color soaker:<br><a href="http://www.yesmaamslings.com/cushiestore/html/images/brnbig.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.yesmaamslings.com/cushies...ges/brnbig.jpg</a><br>
1 XL toddler soaker (up to 50 lbs, it fits my 3 yr old) in the blues:<br><a href="http://www.yesmaamslings.com/cushiestore/html/images/blulgbig.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.yesmaamslings.com/cushies...s/blulgbig.jpg</a><br><br>
the small blue one is already going to a friend. First come first serve, if you could cover shipping that would be great but if you can't I understand, but the soakers are FREE, a great for someone who can't afford wool but has been wanting to try it, they are GREAT soakers, it is all we use at night, and they are knit wonderfully, will come with a drawstring waist and the legs will be stitched to fit your baby!<br><br>
Again, they are FREE, I am asking for nothing in return but maybe a thanks? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> (if ya feel like it) I hope to make a few people happy with new wool, and clean out my store so I feel like making more soakers! (depression sucks) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
Post here or e-mail me ([email protected]) to grab one, happy Labor day! ~

Marnie, I LOVE your soakers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> they are soooooo pretty. I'd snag the one that fits ds, but I realllly feel someone that is in more need than I should have a chance. I don't understand why they aren't selling other than everyone seems to be "broke" or saving for SP's and the FUZ. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I'm a good window shopper, not so good at spending the money. This may give someone the opportunity to try wool w/o spending a lot too. Hope you get your spirits up and know we all do admire your work. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

THey're lovely! That was so nice to offer them up for free. Might I suggest taking a small break so it doesn't get you down? I know I sure need abreak from all my sewing projects!<br><br>
Anyways, I love the colors and the way the soaker looks - best wishes for future sales<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I guess I should have known they would be gone in a sec! LOL thank you for the compliments, I do work hard on the soakers, I have no clue why they aren't selling, but I have a feeling it is the muted colors, while pretty, the brights seem to sell MUCH better, so I am sticking with that I think from here on out!<br><br>
Anyway they are all gone now, if I have PM'd or e-mailed you and said you got one, you got one!

Yeah I took a break, that is the problem, I didn't stock last week because I knew I wasn't 'in' to it, but the depression makes me want to stop all together, which isn't cool, I love doing this, and today I am happier, I made a few mamma's very happy and that makes me happy too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Thanks for the support though, I really appreciate it! ~

Still waiting to hear back from you if the Med/lg is okay for you, if so you got it, the others are all gone. If it won't work, I have others that will take it! LMK, I cleaned out my PM box! ~

I agree that brighter colors would be more popular.<br><br>
I hope you did get at least a little something for them!<br><br>
Good luck on finding some nice colors. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Depression really stinks.<br><br>

I would love a size medium. Just getting started with cloth diapering, and have nothing other than cotnwraps, which aren't all that great. I'll email you too! They're gorgeous, and they ought to sell!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hippie.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hippie">

Aw, I would have LOVED one! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> I've been eyeing the fall colors soakers for a long time now but just didn't have $30 to spend on one. Dh has said no more diapers/covers right now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I'm sorry you are feeling down.
