I am claiming Spikefan for towels.
This is my 2nd claim this round, 0 in tranzit.

Hello Guys,

My name is Eszter from Hungary - Europe. I'm 37 years old, living with my husband and my 5.5 years old son. I am a marketing/data analyst working from home, and I am running a felt decor shop on Etsy. Smiley) I am not good in machine sewing, knitting/crocheting and drawing/painting (oh damn, I don't know nothing Smiley), so my biggest wishes are around those.
We have just moved to a new house, so there are some things around home decoration, but also I am trying to collect Christmas Gifts for my family already. Also, we do have some kids around (mostly boys), so I am collecting small stuffs for them as well.

Wow, so much people here! Welcome all Smiley

Has anyone used a bias tape maker? Not the heavy duty one that irons for you, just the one that folds your fabric and you have to iron as it comes out the end. I was looking on amazon and there are a lot of brands and a lot of contradictory reviews. I need to make about 10 yards of bias tape and do not relish the idea of folding it all by hand.

I have one tiny one - ought in in a local store.

Hi Kittykill, come and join! Smiley

YAY, it's snowing in Hungary! Finally Smiley (I am happy, because I am inside the house, I am going nowhere in this cold weather Smiley Love home-office Smiley)
It's looking like a fun swap again... just decided what to do to someone, it was a new claim.. okay, checking the new list... then, she claimed again... I have to make my decisions more faster haha Smiley
Holidays here were crazy... I had some days off from work, so was able to work on orders (yea, Christmas ornaments... crazy-busy period), and then, when Christmas came, my son got ill with serious heat... so, all plans gone, we stayed home, and the whole family came to us... it was a non-stop 5 days with parties... I am exhausted.
I really want to try new things this month, started to work for Averia and Audio... and I can see, this is maybe my turn now... let me check the current list... Smiley

Uhmmm... Hi everyone, happy New Year!  I should have peeked in here before signing up on the swap thread.  I made a claim without knowing that others had specific plans.  Please let me delete my claim.  Again, my apologies.
Plenty of time left for this OWS, the month has just started Smiley You can start claiming Smiley
I have some orders, and I have to finish those first before I start claiming, but I do have 2 projects set for Averia, and one for Rscowtown... so keep calm. Also: I might will use Fedex shipping this time - much expensive, but more safe, and quick. Smiley

Happy New Year everyone! I Wish you all enough time to craft Smiley

I've been very patiently waiting for this swap and collecting ideas for my wish list!

Same here: I am adding new things to my wish list every day Smiley

I know it is a little sappy, but I have always loved when people do a wash of color on watercolor paper with a calligraphy quote done over top, suitable for framing.

Speaking of new techniques, I got a chain maille book and supplies for Christmas - looking forward to trying that.

btw, baby countdown is at 16 weeks & 1 day till due date! My daughter Franki seems to be leaning toward pinks with elephants and little mermaid themes.


yess, that is what I want to learn... ofc. at the start it won't be good for framing, but maybe starting with bookmarks...
Hmm, pinks.. looks like it will be a girl? ... Smiley So fun!
20  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Gallery and Discussion Round 133 (January 2017) on: December 28, 2016 01:12:46 AM
Any any new Technics you want to learn in 2017 guys? I would like to learn calligraphy writing Smiley
