This is an unswap! Keep everything you make for gifts at Christmas. Sign up at any point that you'd like (you get reminders with the craft themes and little tips if you sign up). If you don't want to do whatever craft is assigned to a month, feel free to subsititue with another craft. The main point is to keep crafting and making gifts to avoid the malls as much as possible at Christmas time.
Although I don't have pictures yet (where IS that digital camera cord, anyway?!), I rec'd my package from ayeshcube last week. I LOVE IT! It's a record bowl with my favorite lyrics and great Elvis pictures glued to it, a beautiful Elvis bag (which I can't get pictures of because my sister has already claimed it and ran), and the coolest Elvis journal ever. Where did you get those letters and things inside of it?
I'm trying to make a chenille pillow, but I can't get the crap to fray. Any idea how to make it fray faster? I've gone one round in the washer and three in the dryer and nada. Not sure what fabric I got (it was in the remanent bin, but one may be taffeta) but I was told you could make chenille with anything that frayed easily around the egdes, which this does. Argh! I **really** don't want to start over.
