1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Make me a Hat round 2. Sendouts Aug 16 on: August 24, 2010 06:29:44 PM
I received from Grannydragon yesterday and I was so pleased with her work!

The hat! I actually wore it today, it rained here in NJ and got chilly enough for the hat. Grannydragon, you were spot on with the yarn choice, I love it! Matches so much of my stuff.



The extras! There are two wooden buttons with two stone beads. The wooden buttons work so well with a cowl I'm working on. There is also an Canada keychain and an Ontario pin. There was a canada magnetic ribbon for your car but I don't remember where I put it at the time Sad

There is also a super cute shawl pin that came with the cowl! I'm not sure if you can see but they are little butterflies!



Grannydragon was kind enough to send along a cowl! And it so versatile!





Thanks so much Grannydragon! Everything is so perfect! I love it! Cheesy

Wow. Can I vent? This may not seem like alot to other people with careers and kids, but this is totally killing me right now Angry

Problem 1: Moved to a new military post. I'm pretty old to be on base, because people keep asking me what branch of military my husband is in. So I guess this means that I can meet no woman because I guess they assume I have friends already? And men aren't willing to meet me, I guess because they don't want to get caught in something nasty?

Problem 2: New job. Takes time getting used to.

Problem 3: I work at a kennel. This is physically demanding, and I'm trying to do the Couch 2 5k program so I am physically wiped.

Problem 4: There are only 5 people at my job. So we are communicating all the time. My boss and I are out of this situation. Boy is a total sleeze scumbag low life of a man, Girl 1 is 22 with kid and fiance, and Girl 2 is a total sl***y h*e bag. Well boy is just a lazy problem in general and girl 2 got into some drama about trying to fool around with Girl 1's fiance, though the fiance initiated it. So I cover alot for either girl because they don't want to be around each other. Which is irritating enough already! Girl 2 GROW UP! Girl 1 BREAK UP WITH THE CHEATING FIANCE!!! UGH.

Problem 5: Boy was just hired along with me within the last month. 2 weeks ago he showed up five minutes before his shift and walked out on us. Leaving me and the others with lots of 12 hour shifts to work. (again with the wiped out feeling.)

Problem 6: I just so happened to pick a school that has like a million classes, each holding 80 students and they are ALL FULL. I mean it's a community college, not a university.

Problem 7: The ami pattern I picked for this claim is making my head explode. It's coming along but the little bits of brain keep re-exploding. I see what the designer meant by the pattern being written for the end result and not ease. Oh well. I think it's looking great Cheesy

Sent in my first claim! I'll be doing my very first amigurumi! I have the pattern already picked out and everything. It will probably take me the entire 2 weeks though because the pattern is extensive! It was definitely written for the end result's appearance and not for ease, but that is okay with me. The FO looks great and I hope the recipient likes it.

Love this hat! I wish I'd seen this sooner and would've gotten some inspiration for my hat in the Make Me a Hat Swap.

I love it! And the little balls are a nice alternative to pom-poms!

Ah! What a cute hat Gspinn! I can't pull off hats like that because I have too much hair, but that is too cute.

Also,that reminds me, I need to buy a mannequinn head from Hobby Lobby.

I like serendipitous moments where you finish what you're making the day before sendouts. When in fact, you're ten days early when you thought sendouts were the 6th not the 16th.

You can only post a list if it is your bday this month.

You can participate and send packages, but if it is not your bday, then you are a non-birthday swapper and will only receive a thank you snail mail note in return.

You can send packages and post your list in the month of March. It's not like you participate in August and cannot participate in March. You can always participate!

Hope this helps. I kind of threw a bunch of answers out there and hope they stick.
