I am thinking we will do one large and two small crafted items...okay with everyone?  You can do more, but not less than one large and two small.

Basically what we are doing is crafting housewares for each other...this includes teatowels, potholders, basically anything a happy homemaker would like.  I really enjoyed the last swap, and hope we have just as much fun on this one.  This is my first organized swap, so please be paitient with me girls/guys!!  I am giving everyone a month to craft, so be sure and mark your calendar!  I will also be pm'ing you periodically, checking your progress.

Please be sure to communicate with me--giving me dc #'s when you ship, and telling me when you receive your items from your partner.  If you can't post pictures, please tell your partner so that he/she will be sure to take pictures. 

Also if you have pictures of your house, please share them with your partner...it helps to see these spaces.

I can't wait for this swap...I had so much fun in the last one!

4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / bridal shower wishlist swap on: July 10, 2006 02:29:47 PM
I was embroidering a tea towel, and thought that a bridal shower swap would be cool...it would be like the current birthday wishlist, but for getting married...or even those who recently married, but didn't get the cool stuff that they wanted...

and obviously I am not a newlywed...I have been married 10 years...just thought it was a cool idea!
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Pimp my appliance cover swap? on: June 04, 2006 12:00:35 PM
I was thinking about my kitchenaid stand mixer, and how I wish it had a cool cover...and thought it might make a cool swap...anyone game??  We could do all kinds of appliance covers...anyone interested??
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / my first completed project on: May 12, 2006 12:04:46 PM
I just did this last night...I have been looking forever for some nurse fabric to make my mom a stethoscope cover and couldn't find anything that I liked.  So I was looking for a free nurse embroidery pattern and found one that was for machine embroidery that was a kind of stick figure...so I drew it out and then asked my five year old to draw the figure like I did...and she did a great job!  The design was very easy to do-and since it is supposed to look like a kid's drawing my beginner skills are adequate. I used transfer paper to copy the design...the purple is darker in person...and my scanner is kind of crappy!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / from pajama pants to skirt! Img heavy on: April 06, 2006 10:24:50 AM
I had some pajama bottoms that didn't fit me quite right, but I wanted to do something with, so I made my daughter a skirt!  This is my first time posting a topic, so be gentle!!


my daughter is modeling the skirt--front shot


back shot:


action shot of the things in the back:


I thought that I would show it off...I like how the original crotch of the pj bottoms flares out in the back...it has great movement to it!
