An octopus (though Kracken might suit as well).  He's 5" tall at his tallest tentacle.

Oh my gosh.he's hilarious!  I love him!  Look who arrived in the mail today:


What is he made out of?  I can't tell for sure.

(now I'm the one having serious swap anxiety.)

Heading to the PO now to send.  I ran out of ______ and the shops were closed yesterday by the time I realized I was going to run out.   I made the 2 hour round trip drive this morning to pick up more supplies so I could finish.  There's still a bit more I wanted to do, but it looks fine so I'm sending it out as is.

I sure wish I'd been able to finish my original project for the swap, but it would take me at least another solid week of crafting to finish it.  I don't want to rush that one as I'd really like to add it to my portfolio and it sounds like I wouldn't be allowed the extra time to complete it anyway.  However, I'll post it when I do finish it so my swapee can at least see that I haven't been idle.  I think the gallery that represents me may be interested in putting it on display so it certainly wasn't wasted time. 

The project I am sending out took quite a lot of hours to complete as there were several stages it needed to go through, but at least for the final stages I was able to take it on the road with me and work on it during the long daily drive to/from our new house to build walls, put in a floor and do wiring over the last few weeks.  I'll be mailing this out priority (or whatever will get it to you sooner) to make up for the delay.

I sent my husband to the new house to work by himself on Sunday and I spent the entire day crafting.  Today is our wedding anniversary.  We celebrated it by wiring my husband's workshop at the new house (we were actually supposed to celebrate it last week butI was trying to work on my swap item).  When we got home he made dinner took care of the ponies, dogs, cats & chickens & went to bed.  I'm still up crafting.  I think he's glad to see me working on something I enjoy.  It's been a hard few months spent renovating and building.

Why is it when time is crunched that I always have a tendency to spend even more time on a project?  I guess I'm just panicky.hoping that the final result makes up for the late send.

craftyzooprgrl - What lovely bunting!  You did a wonderful job of simplifying the animals!

What a beautiful turtle RagingSloth!  I really love the stitching!

Inselaeffchen - the crocheted animas are fantastic and I bet they would make a great mobile for Craftyzooprgrl.

I feel absolutely awful that I'll be late (that is not how I normally operate), but I've been slammed from left and right.  I restarted my project so I could do a fair portion of it "on-the-go", but it couldn't be taken on the road until I finished a few items at home.

What was to be three weeks off has not been.  The class I was to teach was cancelled the first week, but they handed me another day camp at the last minute that is 2 hours away that had no previously set curriculum.  I muddled through.

The builder for our house is now having a temper tantrum (we found a few problems and pointed them out.....he feels we're being unreasonable).  He is now demanding we go to the site every day (it's a 3+ hour drive round trip).  He's also demanding that we do our portion of the work we're supposed to do by next week instead of later in the process as we were originally told.  We've been leaving the old house at 6am to drive up there to work & working 'till midnight (heavy physical labor) before making the long drive home.  I've been able to do portions of my swap in the car on the commute and for an hour or two after my husband goes to bed, but I'm now back to needing to some extensive crafting on a few parts at home.  I sent my husband to the property by himself today so I could work on my swap for a while today after work.  He's not happy, but he'll manage.

The swaps received that have been posted have been FANTASTIC!  Such a clever group!

I managed to get a bit of crafting done during the art day camps I was teaching last week.  teaching skills related to my project allowed me to demonstrate using my swap.....clever thinking eh?  Heck, there wasn't even time for me to eat the lunch I brought.....I'd wind up eating it in the car on the way home at the end of the day each day.  Next week is my last week of teaching day camps for the summer......it can't be over soon enough!

I'll certainly be right up to the deadline, but I knew it would be like that.

Alittlemusthave - you are very kind, but don't sell yourself short....you do very nice work!
