1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: EPP Hexie Fabric Swap R2- Gallery! on: August 06, 2017 07:52:47 PM
eek, so behind in posting pictures and unfortunately I totally suck at taking pictures. I am just back from a trip to the beach (grandbaby's first trip to the ocean) and I don't even have any decent beach pictures. I brought all my hexie fabric along (including what I had just gotten from Quaggy) and only managed to get 2 flowers done. I really do appreciate all the multiples of 6 and all the blue. Thank you so much for catering to my quirks.

First up, prettily packaged, from Quaggy and so many squares! I am going to be busy a while with these




Here are my lovely and so very blue sets from Eamea




Pretties from aspenwall - including a set that looks like raindrops! possibly my favorite fabric of all.




These lovely sets were from Amazon_warrior. Loving that star fabric and so sweet of you to share a bit with all of us!




Thank you all!

Awe Thanate your daughter looks like an amazing scientist! How did the vinegar work? we probably should have tried them out before sending - but time  just disappears
4  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: EPP Hexie Fabric Swap R2-SU: CLOSED; SO- July 31, 2017 on: July 29, 2017 06:51:16 PM
I had enough ready to send a couple weeks ago and was thinking to myself "eh I'll just wait till the end and get a few more done for everyone here and there" Ha, time completely got away from me. Hopefully I can spend some time tomorrow getting everything all organized and ready so I can send on time. I am so much happier with long crafting periods but sometimes that isn't enough to let me get things done. Life happens. Please do not feel a need to sew anything for me. I'm perfectly happy with unsewn. I think I may take a month or two off from swapping and get all my hexies organized and sewn into flowers. Quaggy is an inspiration to me

Hi Ladies, sorry to have been ridiculously quiet this round. Life is good, grandbaby is wonderful, and all is well. My surgery does not seem to have worked and they are trying something else pretty soon but I have to go for a bunch more tests firsts. not really fun, but nothing serious. the schedule of doctors visits has been pretty intense - one appointment Thursday, one Friday, one tomorrow and another on Friday to go over all the results.

How is everyone enjoying the summer?

I claim LaChapa for some supplies from her amazon wishlist

2 claims, 1 sent, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, and a box turtle.

For most things, I would prefer items inspired by my pinterest instead of exact duplicates.

We have no allergies here (other than awful ragweed allergies... but can't see that as much of an issue in swap packages). We have been having a go at switching from a vegetarian diet to a vegan diet so probably better to stay away from foods unless they are vegan.

Please feel to claim me for anything on my Please make this for me boards on pinterest:

~Tiny artwork - Embroidery, drawings, paintings - inchie, twinchie, rinchie sort of sizes. I'm sure it doesn't need to be said, but would prefer quality over quantity. One is more than enough if made with love and care

~Turtle cozies! My Tasha needs a cozy.
   
~The start of an altered journal

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Writing Magic - Nanowrimo 2017 on: July 07, 2017 07:28:02 PM
I think it has been a while since we had a "Writing Magic - Nanowrimo" swap. November 1st may seem like a long way off, but it will be here before we know it.

If anyone isn't familiar with Nanowrimo (national novel writing month) Please check it out - http://nanowrimo.org/ Completing the challenge of writing 50,000 words in a month is an amazing feeling and if I have managed it, anyone can.

Here is a link to the last round I know of: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=426706.msg5082168#msg5082168

Is there any interest in a swap of a medium item and maybe a small or two to aid people in their quest to write 50,000 words? Mug rugs, journals, coasters, snacks, wrist warmers, thinking caps, inspriational amigurumis, story stones, scarves, whatever might bring inspiration to a person.

Love that vintage star wars fabric! Lucky!!!

Looking forward to seeing what you are going to make with the inks fishstix Smiley
