11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Keep Me Warm Swap Gallery!!! on: February 12, 2011 05:04:48 PM
Thanks, ladies! Blushingbluegrass, I'm so glad you like it all!!

The cowl was just a basic half-double-crochet strip done with the some brushed boucle (I'm pretty sure I spelled that wrong...) yarn. I normally hate boucle yarn because it is lumpy and hurts my fingers after a while... But, this was so soft and since it was brushed and fluffy, it reminded me of fur. But, yeah... Its just a crocheted strip that I twisted at the end to get the infinity twist to it. Just make sure its long enough to not be tight with the twist before you stitch it up Smiley

You get a little bit of snow or icy rain in Louisiana, and people act like the world is coming to an end!! My son's school was closed for two days last week and there wasn't even snow on the ground. Then, our power went out late on Friday night, and the electric company just now got the damage repaired. Combine all that with crazy drivers on the road and three people I know getting into car wrecks over the weekend, and that makes for the most chaotic weekend I have had in a very long time!!! Anyhow, power is back on now, and everyone is okay.

Hopefully, I can get some more work done in the next night or two. Its gonna be quick work to get it all done. I'm hoping to be ready to send out by this weekend Smiley But, if I don't stop picking up extras, I'm gonna need an appliance box to ship in... hahahaha.

Sent today! Yay!!! But, as usual... I forgot to take pictures of anything. I always finish and then pack it all up in my excitement to get it out the door and forget all about taking pictures of what I made. Oh well  Tongue Someday, I will learn... haha.

I sent to blushingbluegrass today! Here I was thinking I was still late since my power has been out all weekend and I haven't been able to keep up with the boards. I didn't realize until just now that the date had been extended... lol.

I just got something in the mail that I was waiting on for this swap! So, I will probably try to get some more work done tonight. I don't have too much left to do. Still trying to decide what I want to do for the Valentine card though... I'm not much on paper crafting. So, we shall see what I come up with Smiley

I'm still working on the wearable. Everything else is done. So, I'm thinking I will be sending Thursday or Friday. I planned on wrapping up this weekend, but we ended up going out of town. So, I will be working on it in the next couple days Smiley

Happy Birthday, Miss Barbara!!! I hope you have a good one Smiley



I have most everything cut out and waiting for me. I'm trying to wrap up a couple other swaps this week. Just have a couple more things to finish, and then I can get my sewing machine cranked up and going on this swap. I keep finding little bought extras everywhere I go. Its amazing how many random things you can think of that belong in a purse  Cheesy
