31  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: 4+4+4+4 Birthday Card Swap on: July 15, 2014 07:13:41 PM
I've got several spots open now, but anytime this fall should be okay. Doesn't take that long to make 16 cards.  Grin

I signed up with Gala too, but would still be game for this as well if you want to try it later.

The "no newbies" clause rules me out, I think, but I'll be watching with interest...

well pick one and then ya can do the next round.

it really is a great swap

We're really a great bunch - - except for when one of us picks an impossible block like Thistle Blooms (Oops! That was me). There are several great swaps starting soon, so please join one so you can join us for Round 7. Looking forward to seeing more from you.  Cheesy

So tomorrow you'll be eligible to take part in a swap. Looks like you're more than ready! You definitely fit into the 'More arts than crafts'  group with your talents. Very glad to have you join us!

Thanks for the colors heads up, Sloth. Guess I need to track down more gray fabrics. Oh, the pain of having to buy more fabric! Tee-hee!! Ought to buy a bolt each of black and white while I'm at it since we've used so much of them as backgrounds in the last few rounds.

I'm thinking about a Disappearing 9-Patch as a possibility for my second group, but haven't chosen colors yet. Would anyone want to clobber me if I asked for Quilter's Choice of paper-pieced blocks again? Decisions, decisions.

Love the Celtic knot cable on the hat! Find it hard to believe that it's your first pair of knit socks. WOW! They look great.

Master Six is being raised well I see. His very own Dr. Who scarf! Lucky boy!

I know I want more quilter's choice stars in French Provencial blues and yellows, but need to think about what else I might want. Will get back to you soon. Anyone heard from Donniesgirl? Wonder how she's doing in this heat.  Thanks, Carol for picking up the reins!

Love the quilts, especially the diagonally striped one. Cute pillow cases. Kids will love those fabrics.
UTM, those necklaces are ve-e-e-ery nice!
Not familiar with Moonrise Kingdom, but the stitching looks very well done. Reminds me of the stitch samplers our ancestors made, but with a bright modern take.

Our Dutch oven group had its monthly cookout yesterday, so thought I'd share with you what I made. Everything we make is done in cast iron Dutch ovens using charcoal as our heat source. Makes controlling the heat a challenge, especially when it's very cold, windy, or raining. A cherry upside down cake made from some of the fresh cherries I've been processing this week (No, not the brandied ones or the ones in vodka.  Cheesy Just plain ol' cherries.) And to keep things simple since it's so hot here, Italian sausages braised with bell peppers and sweet onions.

kbrison and I could meet up in real life.  We both live in OK.  In fact, I believe she only lives an hour and a half from me.

True. Not only could we meet up, my two daughters and a friend also live near me and all are on Craftster. Then there are a number of swappers who live in the Dallas area. Sounds like we have the makings for at least a mini-meet up.

And Suereal, I was one of those English teachers who probably would have loved having someone with your sense of humor in my classes. My principal often thought that my teaching methods were a little strange. Examples: tossing bean bags at each other (A very testy-sounding him: Mrs. Brison, is this part of your lesson plan? Me: Yes, sir, it is! We're learning about pronouns.), my students running, jumping, singing, etc. in the hallway outside the gym (Vice-Principal: Mrs. Brison, is this part of your lesson plan? Me: Yes, sir, it is! We're studying action verbs.), other days: making pudding cones in the classroom (We were studying adverbs and adjectives that day), drawing maps of squirrels, trees, bushes, and puddles (prepositions), standing around reading outloud (Readers Theater about similes), trying on a kimono, folding origami, and watching anime (setting the scene for a novella we were about to read). No matter what you're trying to learn, if it's not fun or deeply interesting, why do it???
