1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Be AWESOME (Redux) CLOSED!! Sendout March 23 on: March 04, 2015 10:59:12 PM
Started crafting today, it's coming along... magically Wink And speaking of stash-busting, I'm going to be able to use up a bunch of fancy wool yarn a friend brought back from Iceland for me years ago. Glad to finally put it to good use!

Woohoo for magic!!  Cheesy And double woohoo for stash-busting!!   Grin And triple woohoo for fancy wool from Iceland!!  Grin Grin

Haha!  Cheesy

I have more than one idea, will go through my stash today to see what's in there (always more than I remembered, oops  Tongue ) and maybe get started on that today!

Oooh, thisbirdsabsurd, that is gorgeous! I love the stitching, the denim pocket and all the nifty things you added.
Very, very pretty!

What a great start!   Smiley

You can post it on FB  Grin haha!

This is such a fun swap! Will go shopping for our trade tomorrow, hopefully I will succeed!

Now, I am going to visit the gallery  Cheesy

My awesome partner is a magician = knitter!! Woohoo for that!! I love knitted things, but I cannot knit, tried it but somehow me and two needles looks more like wrestling than knitting  Tongue Haha!

- I just realized that my lovely, awesome partner did NOT say she will knit me something, she crochets too! I do that too, so of course I love crocheted things too  Grin Just go with what you want to make, awesome partner!!  Wink -

We are going to do an awesome large, or large awesomeness. That gives me the reason to sew more than one thing, haha  Grin One for her son and one for her! I love, love sewing so the more time I can spend playing with my lovely sewing machine, the better  Wink

I'm glad to read about large, enormous, endless stashes... I crafted several swaps only using stuff from my stash, but it doesn't show at all, yikes!  Shocked Haha!
I will keep trying to reduce it! Oh and I do buy new things, but only if it is a new item/craft or yarn in a different colour. Reason enough to get inside the craft store  Wink

I love this part of swapping so much! Stalking, plotting and planning  Cheesy
Of course I love crafting too, duh  Tongue

Not settled on an idea yet, but I like to take my time!

It is not about being awesome yourself but about CRAFTING awesome for someone else!
That is something I can do, so I sent my info in  Grin

Oh Lime, I'm totally fine with just one AWESOME stamped thingy of yours  Grin Grin

Woohoo! Exciting!!  Cheesy

Subee that is a great idea! Nope, won't work for me, 'cause I bought the A5 size which is smaller that the comp book you are using. In the Netherlands, we have the A5 size too. I searched the internet, but your size isn't available here  Undecided
That is why I will send CMB 2 notebooks (or 3 if that fits!), but since she is my friend I can send her a few at another moment!

It is still a good idea though!

I could have made a cover with the measurements, but I like to fit it and see if it fits good enough. And I'm not good at working with measurements haha!

I am DONE!! and bit sad, because I had sooo much fun making this! Will make me some, just for the fun of sewing it  Grin

Only had to sew on some embellishments today, I finished sewing the cover yesterday. I LOVE it! Is that okay to say so about my own work haha?! My two sons and my MIL didn't see IT, but I'm sure you will CMB!  Smiley

We are doing our own little trade beside this cover, so I won't send tomorrow or Wednesday. I hope to send end of the week or this weekend though!

Oh I bought some FUN air-cushion envelopes! Yes,I know, you're thinking fun envelopes???  Huh Believe me, these sparkle and are really fun!  Smiley

And of course I cannot get the comp book you are all using! Or no, that's not right, I can get it but I will have to order it in the USA... So I bought not 1 but 3 comp books today, size A5. I will send 2, if it all fits well I will send 3. We will see!

While I visited the shop I boutht waaaaayyy more than planned haha, but it is a store like the dollar-store, so nothing expensive (but it did buy a lot  Tongue ) I also bought gesso, which I want to try for some time now!!

On topic, I have an idea and I started composing (sounds so fancy and professional haha) my fabric... For now I'm satisfied, not sure how to embellish it yet but I should sew the cover before I worry about that part!

CMB, I love the expression "with fresh eyes", we would say "with a fresh look", almost the same funny right?! It works for me that way. When I get stuck, I stop for some time and when I come back I know what to do and all of the sudden I'm pleased with what I made so far! I'm sure it will work out!!  Cheesy

No hurry or pressure Susi! Just take your time.
I will still be here and enthousiastic when you are ready to start  Grin

Sometimes real life seams to take over  Wink and sometimes it just gets forgotten. Just checking it won't be forgotten  Tongue
