...aaaaand my seam ripper and I are going to have a loong conversation with my current project  Tongue

Aaah, the trusty seam ripper.  I keep mine close by at all times!  LOL  I usually end up breaking mine somehow so the last time I had to get one, I bought 2!  I thought having a back-up was a good idea.  How sad is it that my seam ripper has become one of my most important sewing tools?  Doesn't speak well for my sewing does it?  LOL  Grin

I have been having problems with my right arm- hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, shoulder.  I think it's from too much time on the computer.  Roll Eyes  So I lost a couple of days due to pain.  It's not so bad right now and I hope to get something good accomplished today.  Cheesy
I have so many projects going on.  I don't know how I'm keeping anything straight!  LOL  It's so much fun though!!  Cheesy 
I don't think I'll be ready to send until next week I'm afraid.  Definitely not late!!  But not terribly early though.  Maybe I'll be done over the weekend.  If I send early Chloecat will receive in a decent amount time (in relation to when the swap ends).  Does anyone know how long it takes to get things from the US to Australia?  I am on the east coast.

I have been busy all weekend.  I picked up the serger on Saturday.  It had been sitting for a long time and was filthy.  But a little bit of cleaning and it looks great.  Now- I must say that I stumbled upon the greatest deal of the century!  I bought a $400+ machine for $35!!!  And it's in perfect working condition!!  I loooooove it so very much.  It's a Janome 643D.  I actually laid in bed last night marveling at how insanely lucky I am to have gotten such an amazing and wonderful and awesome (need I gush more? LOL) tool.  I can't believe it!  I have used it already and when I see the serged edges of my project, I am filled with such joy.  Grin  LOL 

I have gotten my HK fabric and am trying to decide exactly what to make with it.  I know what I am going to make.  But which one in particular should I make?  I hope to start on it in a day or two.  I am angeling for someone in the Ongoing Wish swap and I've been working like crazy on that all weekend.   And I have a swap due Friday that I must finish.  Busy, busy busy!!

I love this swap.  I had no idea how much fun Hello Kitty can be until I found Craftster.  Cheesy  I'm hooked!!

I'm glad you like the frame pinksparklystars!!  Cheesy  I'm sorry it took so long to get to ya though.  LOL

(I am sorry for being so late saying this.)  I received today!!!!  Aaaah!  Grin Grin

I got the most awesome package from my most awesome partner today.  *waves* Hey Haylie!! 

I have taken pics but I need to get them off my camera and then upload them. 

Haylie was so generous and she made something for everyone in my family.  And she did an amazing job.  We are all so happy and I am so touched with all the thought she put into everything.  And the time and effort.  I love this swap. And I am so happy with my swap partner.  She and I get on so well.  Cheesy 

Pics coming soon!!

Oh, this is NOT 100% wool.  I can not afford that.  LOL  This is 20% wool felt.  But it's a huge step up from the other kind of cheap felt.  So, I'll take it.  Cheesy

I got my fabric today!!!!   Yaaay!!  I am so excited.  Oh, and some more awesome news....

I've been looking for a serger (overlock) for, well, for forever and I can't find one anywhere around here.  I want to buy used because I can't afford any new ones.   I search craigslist every day and a local yardsale site every day.  Nothing!!  Well!!  I found one and she is only asking $35 for it!!!  Do you have any idea how CHEAP that is??  LOL  I asked her for it and I'm going to pick it up tomorrow.  I am so darn excited I am big grinning fool.   Grin  I can not wait to pick it up. 

Now, how many of you all think I'm a little off for getting so excited about a sewing machine?   And how many totally understand how I feel?  LOL  Cheesy

I have been also obsessively looking for Hello Kitty stuff.  I'm afraid my new Aussie friend will be rather spoiled.  LOL  I can't seem to help myself.  Cheesy  I hope you REALLY like Hello Kitty.  Grin

I'm making 2.  I finally bought a bunch of felt a couple of days ago.  I picked up a big old pile of felt bolts and went over to the cutting table with them all.  I told the girl I only wanted 1/8 of a yard each.  She thought that was funny.  Cheesy  I got lots of pretty colors.  I love wool felt.  I've never used it or even looked at it before and I've found that I love it.  Love, love, love it!  I love the look of it and the mix of colors in it.  I love working with it too. 
 
I will hopefully get these sent a few days early since they are going off to the UK.  Cheesy  They have a long trip ahead of them.

I have finally finished with yet another swap package and I've started working like mad on this swap.  I've worked on it sporadically but now it's gotten a lot more attention.  Yay for littlemisspoof!  LOL  I finished with 1 thing yesterday and am 90% finished with another.  I have a couple more things to make and then I can send.  I think I'll be done before packages are due.  I know I will.  I feel awful though because my partner sent already and she's just sitting there waiting on me.....  Sad

I'm working on it, I promise!!!  Cheesy

Ya'll are doing awesome.  I love seeing the chatter.  I apologize for being less chatty this last week.  I'm still here though!  Cheesy
