101  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Secret Santa swap, anyone? on: October 10, 2014 10:23:55 PM
Oops! Just filled my last swap spot when I learned LadyBugsandBumblebees was going to have to back out of organizing.

Keep in mind, everyone, that you can only send to your partners when they are marked green on the first page.

Have all the addresses I needed. Now just waiting for the green light. BTW, when you start marking us, I'm finished and ready to send.

Just sent in my questionnaire, too. Now to get back to my baking. Have to have 25 dozen cookies made by tomorrow morning. . . 8 dozen to go.  Roll Eyes And would you believe that I haven't sampled a single one!

Did a little papercrafting today to break up the sewing routine I've been in. I'm teaching a 5-min. workshop next month on cardmaking, so this is what I came up with, embossed Christmas tree cards.

Then, since Halloween is just around the corner, I made a simple pair of cards for that, too. The interiors of the cards have a small, white ghost printed on a square of black paper.

With over a month until send out day, I'm trying to pace myself. I hate scrambling at the last minute to finish something, but I also hate having a finished package just sitting around waiting to be shipped. Have that situation now with a multi-partner swap. All but one package is finished, but I hate sending to some of my partners when I'm not ready to send to all of them.
106  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Mug Rug Swap Rd 6 Gallery on: October 09, 2014 10:19:18 PM
SheridanLA sent the perfect package! Not only did she nail my color preferences, my love of quilting, my love of batiks, and my love of nature, she also sent two extras that are right up my alley -  autographed romance novels from two authors she knows. How awesome is that? The front of the mug rug was from the pattern for a paper-pieced Mariners' Compass that she had started several years ago. She said she had stalked my profile and Pinterest boards. Now I know how thoroughly she did so. I'm one of the quilters in the Quilt Block Swaps who often requests paper-pieced blocks.

SheridanLA said the backing fabric reminded her of forests and the night sky, her favorite parts of camping. I also love camping, but the backing reminds me of the snow-laden evergreens that I would see every winter in my parents' backyard.

The novels are on my desk waiting for the weekend when I hope to have some time to enjoy them. Both authors are new to me, so I'm really looking forward to exploring their works. As a retired English teacher I can never have too many books! And after teaching 'quality literature' for so many years, it's my secret pleasure to immerse myself in romance novels and mysteries.  Grin

Thank you again, SheridanLA, for such a thoughtful combination of gifts!

Mio, your most recent baby afghan is perfect for a boy! Love the speed with which you finish your designs. It would have taken me all year just to make one afghan.

Looks good to me also.

Don't suggest you use rubber cement if you want your project to last. Over time it will turn your paper brown and will lose all it's adhesiveness, so your project will fall apart. Unhappy voice of experience.

Slow going here.  Ugh.  I need to force some progress pretty soon, damnit! 

I also need to stop taking on new projects.  Lordy.

Know what you mean. My local life keeps interfering with my Craftster life. Have to make 25 dozen cookies by Friday evening for an event Saturday that I can't even attend because I have two other commitments at the same time but in different places. Not sure how I keep getting myself into these messes. Undecided
