Update: Saor and I have been PMing it up with ideas and stuff. I am about 3/4 way through my medium item, have supplies and a good great idea for my large one and most of the supplies for two small items.
I also have two assignments due tomorrow and another swap I'm working on so life, as usual, is never dull around here!
I received librarylass' apron today, was about to PM you sharre to see if you'd kept the third piece as it wasn't in the parcel, then jumped on here and found that you had. So all is well.
I also received post cards from Jane Feebles and librarylass today. I had forgotten about sending these! But I think I'll send all mine at the end of the swap as a sort of "thank you" to everyone. It's been great so (sew? ) far.
I just wanted to add, Fee, that the post card you sent is really appropriate! I collect the Avant Cards free postcards from around uni and some locals cafes when I see ones I like, to put on the wall in our entrance hall (I have taken a photo but I'll have to upload it later, DH is on the other computer with the software). I had picked up a copy of the one you sent, but hadn't put it up yet, so it's good to see you know me so well!
Oooo, catch up! Thanks Mnky Mama, Saor's DH and my own are a really good match! I have started my medium project and am waiting for design confirmation on a couple of smaller things to send as well. It's going really well and if I keep this pace up I'll probably be ready to send in a week or so! YAY! My first ever early postal swap! (touch wood)
FEEDBACK IS UPDATED EARLY, LADIES! THanks for your swapping goodies, patience and general good humour, it's been a pleasure. Unfortunately, due to the amount of time and effort involved and the corresponding amount of uni stuffs I have to do at the moment, I won't be able to make this an ongoing swap. But it's been fun and thanks for making what was a huge swap as my first to organise pretty easy and straight forward.
I have a purple one, but it's a lavender colour (so also light). The thing is, it's just a vanishing pen - if you draw onto your fabric and take too long to stitch, by the time you get to some parts the lines will be gone! It's a good motivator But I find that by drawing over the lines a few times to start with (and sometimes as I go depending on how fast I'm stitching) that it's fine. If there's still some ink left at the end of the project, you can dampen it with water and that makes it go away as well (if you went over the lines too many times!)
I'm also currently not embroidering anything due to above post (and I should be doing more uni work in compensation, but here I am . . . )
OK, I'm falling into the bad craftster on this one too, sorry people. I finished Sharre's piece a little late, but had received Miss Vicki's piece already, so I managed to finish it early and I have sent them both on to jane feebles. I'm hoping that the time frames will average themselves out? Sorry if this puts too much pressure on you, Fee. As I said initially, if you haven't finished my square, that's cool, it's not a priority in the grand scheme of things.
It's been interesting to see what other people have come up with so far. I guess my squares will be a real surprise as nobody knows what anyone else is doing . . .
I just finished organising my first swap. I promised myself I'd take a break from swapping and concentrate on school. I really want to sign my hubby up for this one, and he's just said he'd love it if I did I guess that solves that one.
I am a bad craftster - I received from penguino ages ago, but haven't had a chance to post pics because my old school camera is a bum. However, I love them all (sculpy foodstuffs! Sushi, fruit, cookies etc ) and the zipper pouch she made to hold them is also way cool and the perfect size for all my knitting paraphenalia. Now, if I could just find where I put my darning needle, I'd be all set to go!
I have also used the stitch markers already to knit a baby hat for my newest cousin and a pair of wrist warmers for me
