3511  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: 12 Days Of Christmas Swap 2007(CLOSED, First Sendout Date Nov 27th) on: November 16, 2007 09:02:58 AM
lilgothkatt *hugs* that sucks honey, I guess its some consolation that they are all over issues that they think kids are having, but its not nice to have someone question what you are doing as a parent.

thanks for all the thanksgiving advice, I think (unless I'm instructed otherwise) that I'll be bringing apple pie, this has a lot to do with the fact that my mother showed up today with a ton of apples, so maybe a LOT of apple pie

so will I be the most unpopular person on the board if I post my progress *smug grin...coupled with aching back and shoulders...I was working on this swap since 8.30 this morning its now past 5)

4- 1/2 done
8-not done

Now I probably shouldn't have posted that because now I'll get complacent and guess who will be frantically sewing/painting at the last minute.

well this will be my first thanksgiving dinner ever!

We dont do thanksgiving over here in Ireland, but I have a friend from the US and she has invited me to dinner on Friday..

just one question, I dont have to have the candied yams with marshmallows do I (I tasted them once, I think I was overdosed on sugar for the next month....unspeakably bleugh)

yum...turkey.....cranberry relish..

OK another question, obviously I have offered to make a dish to bring along, but are there any other thanksgiving-traditional-hostess gifts??

OK my first in-progress list.
11-done (now that I have bought the final element)...yay
10-still kinda undecided on this one, have an idea but think its a bit meagre on its own, it needs beefing up but I can't think what to add to keep with the theme. So it might change totally!
8-planned (crossing my fingers that I have all the supplies)
7-planned, this is easy, but have a wee bit of shopping to do for it
6-planned, will get the supplies for this tomorrow along with day 7
5-Done...and can we say yay again...
4 and 3-planned and have everything I need, it would have been done today but I had a very unproductive day (Buffy on DVD needed my undivided attention, anyone else noticed how demanding she is?)

so 5/12 days done, nearly half way there, not too bad given that I started late. But I pretty much know what I am doing for the other days.

MissDisney *hugs* honey I am sorry this is causing you such distress, it shouldn't be so hard, I am 100% sure that if you didnt make the send out date, that your partner would understand (its not like you are going to flake, even if its late she will get it eventually). Sounds like you are under too much pressure, crafting is fun, not a reason to beat yourself up.

ouch, I love a deadline as it makes me work my ass off, which I have been doing for the last many many hours!

but I have got loads done....Smiley

I'm loving this swap, it helps that I am a complete craft materials packrat, I probably have enough craft stuff to make all the stuff for all the 12 days for everyone...no I'm not volunteering.

but on this side of the pond its bedtime. so night y'all

I loved this swap so so much, mind you I had an amazing swap partner so that made it fabulous for me!

Ha Supercrafter Edel  to the rescue Wink

not only crafty speediness  (in fact speed of lightness!!) but I also plan to change the energy of the board so from now on, no more car breakdowns, no illness, no trauma, nothing but sweetness and light

I wish you could see me posing 'manfully' with my underpants outside my tights, cape fluttering in the breeze!!

I have received days 12-7 from travelbug! And its driving me nuts not to be able to open them...but there was a very sweet little pencil holder, hello kitty for my daughter, she adores it!

Day 12
a fabulous bag, in a great print, with fabulous cute asian notecards, stickers (which my daughter immediately laid claim to), A great polka dot purse and some sorely needed jewellery findings.  And one of those great scissors that give a wavy edge to the paper, I love love everything

Day 11, two awesome coin purses, I adore the fabrics and loads of Hello Kitty stuff for my daughter, some washcloths, exercise books, she was majorly excited, Also some great laces which she insisted went on her trainers immediately. So they are not in the picture!

Day 10, A brilliant japanese craft book, such pretty projects and some great fabric, I adore the pear and apple fabric,
And a friendship book (I think, its in japanese so we are not 100% sure but my daugher has claimed it anyway and loves it!) And a very neat hair elastic and some craft supplies for sewing purses.

Day 9 (feeling thoroughly spoilt by now!) matching sets of hairbands and eyemasks. Which are brilliant, excellent for travelling, a checkbook cover, I love the fabrics that she uses they are gorgeous. And some lovely bath bubbles and foot lotion.

Day 8, This might be my favourite so far. A Bento box!! I love it, with accessories, dinky little mayonaise holders and little hello kitty box for more little interesting lunch type stuff. I am going to be eating so healthily next year, I can take interesting food, not just boring sandwiches! It was all wrapped up in great bandana, with two cool pairs of chopsticks. And if that weren't enough a great wallet. I am seriously in awe of travelbugs sewing skills. I am very competent, but she is incredibly precise and neat.

Day 7 I love these, unaccountably the candies are all gone now! I really need a needle book and pin, cushion, but as ever Travelbug has a fabulous taste in fabric and awesome sewing skills!

Days 6,5,4 These days all got a little mixed up as life was very full-on at the time, But I loved having all the wonderful packages to open, I got a great japanese craft book, some beautiful little patch work projects.

 Pieces of some of the great fabrics that travelbug had used for the various purses.

Some candies....yum! And an assortment of smaller purses, including some coin purses, a great wallet (not shown as a dear friend fell totally in love with it and I gave it to her)

and other really useful items like a tampon holder , wrist purse and a glasses case.

 I particularly love this black and white bag, I made a dress over the holidays that has a similar black and white pattern, It is my new favourite thing to wear as it is really flattering, this bag matches it perfectly!

Day 3, this is one of the best things about swapping. I would probably not have seen the potential in this fabric but look! It looks amazing as a simple tote and a couple of matching purses. I love the colours. Its a bit crumpled but thats becuase it has been well used already, It is a great size and really handy here in Ireland, where we have a plastic bag levy so shops dont give you bags for groceries.

Day 2 I feel completely spoilt and then look what I got for day two, again fabulous fabric.

I love the brown and blue together

Day 1 adore this fabric, I got a small piece of it in a swap and made a little purse but I love this one, it is a perfect size for going away overnight, and it has had a lot of use already over the holidays.

 there was a bit of camera shake though! Sorry

I also swapped Day 2 with Coryjo, Day 2 from coryjo was a brilliant pair of crocheted slippers (isn't she clever! I wish I could do work like this) and some decorated pillowcases, which I love, I love nice bedlinen, its such a treat.

Thank you both for being great partners and for being so patient in waiting for me to finally post pictures!

what marypoppins said and while you are doing that, make sure you oil it really well.

the problem could be the bobbin tension too but thats the last thing you should alter.
