When I was little I used to eat crabapples too. Kids have an amazing tolerance for sourness!

The difference between apple and crabapple jelly is fairly subtle. Even though they're super-sour when raw, you have to add so much sugar to make the jelly that it comes out fairly similar to apple.

I was just making wild raspberry jelly this weekend and I would have loved some crabapples to put in it. They have so much pectin, and would have given a nice translucency to the jelly. I love the golden colour of yours, by the way. I remember it being slightly pink too, so the different varieties must give different colours.

Just beautiful, and very touching. You work amazingly fast! I think it's perfect as is, especially the hair, and I wouldn't add another stitch.

Oh, I just have no self-control at all! I've just signed up, exactly as I said I wouldn't.

Hi, everybody!

And just one itty bitty swap couldn't do much harm... heh.
That's how it always starts! Cheesy

Ohhhh... looking at the Round 1 gallery again reminded me how much I enjoyed it all. It's getting harder and harder to remind myself I promised I'm not doing another swap this summer! Angry

I like 6 in. by 6 in. as a size. Enough room to write in, do legible drawings, and still small enough to be "little". Even adorably wee, if that's your style.

And late summer is good, because it gives us all time to start gathering material.

Wow! Great to see so much excitement already! To anyone who's worried about how to bind their book, it really is much less a big deal than you'd think. There are lot of good tutorials online for coptic and other types of binding, and none of them are particularly challenging. Last time, -Zoma- made my journal using a really clever technique: she took an old book and cut the binding apart, cut new pages the same size, then bound them up with some of the old pages. Then the whole thing fit back into the original cover (with less pages so it would be looser).

I think I'm going to go look at last year's Gallery again!

I don't think I'll have time to participate this time, but I can second Kartiana's enthusiasm  for Round 1. I was just using the great journal I got from my partner (-Zoma- herself!) the other day, and thinking back on how much fun I had collecting and binding hers and how perfect the one she made for me is. I only wish there had been more swappers the first time 'round, because I enjoyed seeing everyone's journals so much and wish there'd been a lot more of them!

This sounds like something I'd break my "no swaps over the summer" vow for. But I have to suggest the page size shouldn't be too small, or it'll be almost impossible to include any useful information.

Wulf needs to take one of those epic cheesey pictures where you have a weird grin on your face and two thumbs up. That would be an epic graphic for weird fan club swag.

I don't think I've ever been caught in one of those pics. And I'll try to keep it that way! Cheesy

We would all have to have fan clubs for each other!
