Ooooh... I might be interested in a swap, but it would depend on the timing. I have 2 swaps that are due by August 12th, and I'm going to be missing all of next week (and much of the week after) for crafting time. I don't want to jam myself up (especially because it happens so easily and often Smiley ). Would it be over by the end of the games, or slightly after that?

Prompt:  July Mob- World UFO Day
Team: Textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: UFO
Project Name: Jim's Home Improvement T-shirts
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434631.msg5220751#msg5220751

Brief Description: These were supposed to be ready for Father's Day. My step-dad makes a wreck of his shirts whenever he is working on a project and my mom is forever on him about wrecking his good shirts. So, a couple of years ago, I made him a set of shirts and I gave my mother specific instructions that he was allowed to wreck them. It is now a tradition, but this year, they weren't ready (the design was ready, but the stencil wasn't cut- freezer paper cut with the Silhouette). My mom said that I should just give him the plain shirts because he needed them, but then I knew that they'd be indistinguishable from his "good t-shirts" and he'd just get yelled at for wrecking them. This way, everyone knows that these are his work shirts. The funny thing is that he wears them out and about and people have asked them for a business card so he can do work for them! Every year, the design is different.

Whoo-hoo! I actually finished a project! I had about 5 planned, but only got 1 finished ( in triplicate!) and as soon as I find my new blade for my Silhouette, I can do another one in the morning. I have to do some pre- work for my class, so I have to spend time on that tomorrow, too. But, then, I can craft some more!

I decided to modify my idea for the Battle Royale. It's a gift for my sister, and I needed to think about the practicality of what I was originally planning to make. I'll still be making the item for myself (as originally planned), but hers will be a variation on the theme. Tomorrow, I will be doing some sewing, so I'm hoping to make it then.

Nice Subaru TM patch, roler! I love that you've caught the bug for patch making!

LOL! The problem I run into is that I can never seem to catch the FQs when they're on sale...

I think I can chop them up and still keep some for my stash. As for having the right colors, I'll admit, I did pick out the FQs based on some specific ideas, but I still have to have fabrics for the back sides, so I'll be using stash fabrics (including some of the new fabrics I bought... because they're now part of the stash, right? Grin ) for the back sides.

gozer, that scrappy cat is really cute! I love the idea of stitching a whole bunch of fabrics together (sort of) at random and then turning them into something else. I need to start saving up my random scraps now... Smiley  And, another great crossbody bag!

roler, what a great little lion magnet. Felt crafts are always so cute, but I don't do them because of all of the tiny stitching involved, so I can appreciate the work that goes into them!

I have a bunch of ideas, but I have to see how many of them are actually possible. Well, they're all possible, but maybe not within my current time-frame...

To make myself feel better, I'm going to cut a bunch of the newly purchased fabric and make a variety of sizes. Then, I'm going to stitch them together (in somewhat random sets because I tend to get too "matchy matchy") to make some "pre-pillows" that I can stuff and stitch when the mood strikes Smiley

I think today I'll be doing some (long overdue) t-shirt making, and tomorrow, I'll bust out the sewing machine for a few projects. And then, let the patch-making begin!
