I have a spot open but the question is , should I or shouldn't I? Hmmmm, gonna ponder this!
Is that really a question? Because the answer is so obviously that you SHOULD!
I am waiting on feedback, I really should be able to get it by Wednesday, I really really hope I do so I can sign up for this! (I just sent in my IYP, which I was already quasi signed up for, and that makes me full on swaps! *gasp*! )
jemimah, it's all so pretty (and in shades of my favorite color!) but I especially love the diorama!
underthemountain, I think I will, I just need to get something to try it on! And some bleach... I might have some somewhere, but I really don't like the stuff... anyone else end up with the slimy feeling on the hands if they get bleach on them, even after you wash them a million times?
Just waiting for something to... something, and I'll be DONE! It took me longer than I thought, but what's new?
I actually have a friend traveling to Canada tomorrow, she's going to take my package and mail in intra-Canada so hopefully it won't be the usual 4 weeks for it to get there (I have horrible luck getting things into Canada, never had the same problem getting them *from* Canada...
Oh that is cruel! I haven't done any more work on mine, but I did get a supply I needed, so as soon as I finish the last thing for my science swap, I'll be back on it... as soon as I figure out exactly how I'm going to the one piece...
The girl was fairly easy, though it was my first time doing loose bits on a hoop, but the wording... this was the third attempt at it, and I finally just went with paper. It gave me the look closest to what was in my head, though it felt weird... but I guess you don't normally wash a hoop, anyway, right? Still, that whole "sewing paper" thing is weird to me. I like it when other people do it, I just... feel wrong.
I drew the girl out, then made copies and cut out layers of pieces and embroidered them on. I'm not great at embroidery, but I'm slowly learning!
I can, indeed, I'm glad you like it - it was... being difficult, to say the least. The girl was fairly easy, though it was my first time doing loose bits on a hoop, but the wording... this was the third attempt at it, and I finally just went with paper (um, don't wash your hoop... ). It gave me the look closest to what was in my head.

Anyone want to partner up with a British country loving, Eco hippy. I can promise extreme stalking with an upmarket English attitude. Pleaaaaaase pick me or I might cry
I'm sure you'll get snapped up! I browsed your pinterest and I totally want to try to make those pants... I've made pantaloons before, but they're slightly different. Ooooh, new sewing challenges.... anything to distract me from what I've been working on and need to get done, right? O.o
