Not interested in a swap right now. I lack the funds and am still unpacking/reorganizing my craft supplies while cleaning out the junk room to be my craft room and working on my boyfriend's blanket. Tongue

As far as Nerd of the Week, I always forget we can suggest things Roll Eyes Some days I swear I'd forget my name if I hadn't worn it on my shirt for six years Roll Eyes

Team work. Um...the only thing I can think of off the top of my head would be for each team to agree on a theme and try to craft something for the same charity. Or, if a team has several crocheters they could each make a bunch of squares in the same color and someone could volunteer to sew it together and the end product could be given to charity. Same would go for quilters.

ETA: This is what I have on my boyfriend's blanket so far:

Please excuse Smokie. She wanted my attention while I was taking the pic.

FreakieGeekie I cannot even imagine. After spending 2+ hours to make a 4" row I cannot even fathom making an entire blanket. More power to you. Can't wait to see the finished product.
 I have plans to make myself a new purse. I never complete the ones I start for myself so hopefully the Games will keep me on track.  Cool

So far I have a full row. One down, twenty-nine to go! Tongue But it'll be worth it in the end Smiley

Congrats to all the raffle prize winners!

Restarted AGAIN Tongue
After I made thirty squares and started sewing them together, I realized that two rounds would make the blanket bigger than our queen-sized bed and it's only meant to be a lap blanket. So I'll be making single round granny squares and see how that looks.

Beautiful! Those colors look so lovely in that pattern! Shocked
Thanks for sharing your process and the templates! When I get my sewing machine back, I may have to try making some of these.

Yummy breads, a beautiful drawing and lovely flowers in just the first couple days!
I love your throw blanket, pishaw! You can soften up Red Heart acrylics but I don't remember how. I've only ever really made dolls with them and since they weren't for small children, I wasn't worried with the texture being a bit rough.

I never did find those mini containers I had wanted to offer up for raffle. And ALL of my craft supplies are accounted for so I have no idea where they could have gotten off to Huh
I'm hoping to donate something this go around, if I have the funds to ship something.

Also, I just got back to working on the research project and will be doing it a different way. Instead of making charted squares to create a blanket with multiple Swamp and Mountain symbols, I'm going to be making a bunch of granny squares with only two rounds to make a red blanket with the Swamp symbol in black. I did the math and I'll need 900 of these little squares! Shocked So far, I have about 20 but I only restarted on it two days ago and have been doing a bit of housekeeping, too. Wish me luck! I'm gonna need it Tongue

I can't hear the song Chandelier without laughing because of this bit of fanart by Pika-la-Cynique on deviantart.
