1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: 12 Days Of Christmas 2008 (Send Outs EXTENDED TO 12/11/08) on: December 14, 2008 06:33:43 AM
Wow, I'm used to being able to keep up on all of the posts as I check this board several times a day, but I had an issue arrise on Thursday that has kept me from the computer since then.  My husband grandma has been hospitalized and they don't think she will last much longer, so mid-day Thursday dh and the fam and I left town to go visit her for probably the last time.  With all of the confusion, I didn't get my packages posted and have just arrived back home.  I arrived to find that both of Superhooker's packages have been delivered and, Man, am I feeling guilty for not getting her boxes posted.  I am going to go to the post office during my morning break tomorrow, and plan on sending using a faster service than I used the last time.  I feel like such a douche.

But, on a brighter note, I am really pleased with all of the items I'm sending to Superhooker, I hope she likes it all.  I've got major swap anxiety on this one as I have been lusting over all of Superhookers creations for quite some time.

I've got everything packed up and ready to go, all except one of my day 8 items.  It is having a hard time drying, and I don't know if its the weather or what.  I may hold it back and send it in the second package if the darn things don't hurry up and dry.... 

On another note, I received my box from Superhooker on Friday, and it is KILLING me to not open it.  I did peek inside the box, and she wrapped up everything so nice.  I'm afraid I am wrapping challenged, and I am trying to recycle as much as possible lately, so my packages don't look as pretty on the outside as hers do... Smiley  Swap anxiety ensues...........

An another note, I past a Stop sign that had "Hammer Time" painted on the bottom today.  Took me a minute to get it.....

Another update!  Really getting things finished up now, but my fingers are aching due to one of the larges I'm making... Smiley

Day 12:  DONE and Wrapped!
Day 11:  Slightly perishable, plan on doing this Sunday at my moms
Day 10: 9/10 done
Day 9 : 8/9 done
Day 8: 3/8 done
Day 7: 1/7 done 2 almost done, need to purchase the rest
Day 6: 2/6 done 1 thing almost done, rest started
Day 5: 0/5 done, started on 4
Day 4: 1/4 done, rest started and at least 50% done
Day 3:  0/3 done, 50% done on each
Day 2: 2/2 done
Day 1: 0/1 done, 75% done on part, started the rest.

I really felt like I had more finished until I made that list.  No worries though, as I have plenty of time to get it all finished.  I can't believe its almost Christmas!  YAY!

Ooohh, I just realized it had been a bit since I posted in this thread....  I'm really pleased with how things are coming along.  I finished another medium yesterday, and several smalls on Friday.  I almost done with days 12-7 now, with bits and pieces of days 6-1 done.  I've committed  myself to trying to get 12-7 wrapped by next Sunday, then bust through all my other unfinished items. 

I did run into a snag, though.  My sewing machine was acting up, not making straight stitches and the bottom tension was all wonky (or the top, I'm not sure how to tell which is the culprit.  So, my Momma and I took the machine apart yesterday, oiled all the moving parts, blew out all the lint and did a little bit of fiddling.  It still isn't perfect, but it is sewing MUCH better now.  I think my Momma may take her old Singer in to the shop for me and have it tuned up, she keeps hinting that she might.  I guess they don't make them like they used too, cuz hers is probably older than me and it still makes better stitches than my 4 year old one. HMMmmm....

Anywho, just wanted to post my progress, hope everyone is keeping the panicing to a minimum.. Smiley

Hello!  I've been working hard and finally getting some things completed!  I started my new job last week, so things have been a little weird...trying to get into a new routine and such.

Last night, I made the most coolest ____________ evar!  I'm so proud of it, I am making another for myself. Smiley  I've really gotten into a newer medium that I've not worked with much before this swap, but now that I've started, I can't stop making  _____________. 

Well, back at it today, I've got to say, weekends off are the COOLEST! Smiley Smiley
