21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Scrap Happy Swap; send out by 11/30/11 on: November 17, 2011 10:11:44 AM
Going to start sewing scraps together today - finally!!  I've been working like mad around here and taking care of my sick son AGAIN yesterday - he spiked a fever for almost exactly 24 hours, but thank goodness it's over.  That makes the 3RD time he's been sick in just 2 weeks.  Poor kid.

I won't be ready to send out until next week, because I am well behind schedule - it's already noon and I haven't done anything yet except clean a messy house!!

I wish everyone a great weekend, and I'll check in again early next week.
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Shawl for my mom on: November 09, 2011 02:33:04 PM
I made this shawl for my mom using Bernat Matrix ladder yarn.  I bought the yarn years ago and it's been sitting in my stash.  My mom started talking about a shawl that she wanted me to make, and when I whipped this stuff out she loved it.

It's the kind of yarn that looks like a different color depending on what you wear it with, so it's very lovely. 

In terms of knitting, it took me longer than it should have.  I must have started the darn thing about a dozen times before I got used to working with the ladder yarn; I kept dropping stitches!  When I finally did get the hang of it, it turned out beautifully.  

The only thing I don't like is how the seam shows up so much in the photo - you really don't get your eye drawn to it in real life the way you do in the photo...

Thanks for looking!  C&C welcome.

OK, so 2 things happened that made me realize that there's no way I'll get done this week.  First, my son was healthy and happy again after a long 24 hours, thank goodness, but then my daughter and my hubby both became sick.  And just before my hubby felt sick, he was actually at the hospital getting a cast for a broken wrist from a fall at floor hockey.  So he's been hit with a double-whammy.

So today I got next to nothing accomplished and I'm still scrambling to try to catch up on what I have to have done before tomorrow.  Let's not even mention that I've been up since 3am with my daughter throwing up.  Geez.... 

The second thing that I realized is that this is a short week for the kids at school.  They have Thursday and Friday off, so I don't have the time alone at home that I thought I had.  I just hate when I forget about the school holidays!

So I will try to craft over the weekend and send out early next week.  Here's hopin'!!!

Yes, thanks Leslieshappyheart for the scraps - my son saw them and got very excited that one of my computer friends sent me some fabric for him and he kept saying "that was really nice of her to do that for me".  So now I have to get crackin' to make him something cute - I'm thinking a journal cover for him is going to be exactly the thing.  Grin

Anywhoo, speaking of the poor boy, he woke up pretty much every hour last night to throw up and I was right there along with him, so I think I'm going to fizzle out right away.  We did have a nice little nap on the couch for an hour, but that seems to have worn off....  zzzzzzzzzzzz  good night!!

Just wanted to do my first check-in.  I've got my idea all firmed up, I know EXACTLY what I'm making.  So now I have to pick out my fabrics and get some crafting time set aside.  I hope to do it all next week and send out before Remembrance Day!!  Grin Grin Grin  Fingers crossed that I don't run out of time between now & then!!

Sorry for the delay, but I've posted all the titles of the last envelope of recipes now, so I'm all caught up!  I've PMd everyone who requested emails and now I'm off to make my own wish list of recipes.  Everything sounds so yummy!!

Thanks for organizing the swap!!

I got my beautiful package today from Karrie (aka whats_her_name).

Here is the beautiful journal cover she made (look at that cover!)
She also knit me a beautiful toque and it's soft as can be. Fits perfectly!

Thanks so much Karrie!

I'm so glad you like it!  It was my first time playing with hexies and it was a lot of fun - I can see how they get addicting!  I added the button closure because then you can insert loose pages without fear of losing them (I'm forever sticking loose papers in my journals - receipts, bills, etc...)

And the hat on your etsy favorites inspired me, so I knit it up for you in a couple of sessions in front of the tv while catching up on my favorite shows -- they are so quick to knit up that I might just have to make a bunch for Christmas gifts!!

There are plenty of really great journals in this gallery - so many wonderful ideas!  I can hardly wait to see all the other journal covers & extras!!
