Tygir, how did you get the colored string to stay in place? It adds a nice touch!
6712  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Science/Math geek Swap (SIGNUP 10/19/07 - 10/31/07 ; MAIL BY 11/30/07) on: November 14, 2007 03:12:37 PM
I just mailed off my package for another swap, so I am almost free and clear (after tomorrow night) to make everything for this swap. I'm so excited I keep sending my partner messages to let her  know about my tiny bits of progress...and I'm probably driving her up the wall Wink

I'm such a geek...

Everyone is getting such amazing stuff. And now, as usual, I have swap anxiety... Tongue

mcook72677-  I love the pendants and buttons (love the swirls!)

sundayafternoonhous ewife- What a great package! The embroidered bird is so cute, and I love the fabric on the wallet. And, thats pretty funny about the fingerless glove. I could actually use one glove every once in a while- I have afternoon outside bus duty at my school, and the hand that holds the walkie-talkie gets cold (the other one can stay warm in my pocket). I tried mittens,but it was too bulky Wink

RondaS- I love the switchplate- its fantasstic! Wink And, the door sign and space cadet button are great, too. I absolutely love the fabrics she used on the wallet and tote bag (especially the dragonfly fabric).

Mine is on the way via First Class, so it'll probably get there by Monday! This was such a fun, low-stress swap for me. And, since I didn't have to buy anything, it was probably the least expensive swap, too!

Thank you so  much sundayafternoonhous ewife for organizing this swap! After the holidays, I'd definitely be up for a Round 2!

littlebluegirl- I hear you on the post office crunch! I have a staff meeting at 7:45 tomorrow and I CAN NOT BE LATE! Then, it'll carry over to the afternoon. Fortunately, the main post office in my town is open until 6 pm, so I can mail it on the way home because...

I finished!! I ended up with 2 mediums and a very small. For one of the mediums, it was something new for me, but I'm pretty pleased with how it came out! So, I'll be packing up the package in a few minutes, and then I'll be heading upstairs to fold laundry while I watch Bones and House...and they'd better both be on Wink

I needed a USB cable to hook up the printer, and the trip to the store totally interrupted my "crafting groove." So, I'll have to finish the last part tomorrow, now that I have everything I need.

And, since I still can't find my camera's battery charger (it's probably hanging out with the TV remote), I'll have to borrow a camera from work so I can take pics...

I finished the main part of my last item, and it came out pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself. I just need to finish the last part, but I need to hook up the new printer Wink

I really like the zippered pouch kit idea , I like how you rounded the corners of the pouch fabric- Nice touch!). I also like the lounge pants- I really need to make myself some of those!
I use a 5x7 index card as a pattern on the zipped pouches and round the bottom corners with an empty thread spool. When ever I have scraps left from projects big enough I cut them into pouch pieces, and store them in a ziploc bag. That way I can whip up a pouch when I am bored, or send along a zip pouch kit to a swap partner.
 As for the capri lounge pants, I love making them they are so easy and everyone loves lounge pants. I live in mine! I use Sew Easy Pajama Pants by Cindy Taylor Oates, its a book with all the sizes youd need ,it comes with a cute bag pattern and pillowcases as well as a bracelet. You can make them with or without pockets and flys. Anything by this lady is easy to make.

Thanks! I've just found a source for the book, now I just have to wait for the cash to get it Wink And, that's a great idea for the pouches. I always have scraps of fabric, and it would only take a few extra minutes to cut them to size for pouches. Then, when I have more time, I can whip some up!

Wow! hardyswanton01 you got an awesome package! I really like the zippered pouch kit idea (and diesels_mom, I like how you rounded the corners of the pouch fabric- Nice touch!). I also like the lounge pants- I really need to make myself some of those!

Im still working on my last item. I had to modify something, but it should make it easier for me to finish it, I think. Still aiming for a Tuesday or Wednesday send-out! Cant wait to see what everyone gets!
6720  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Tweedy cloche style hats on: November 12, 2007 08:38:49 AM
Thanks for sharing this! It is definitely going on my gifts to make list- I have at least three people who would look great in this hat! And, as silly as it seems, crocheting a hat in the round is easier for me than making a straight scarf...I don't think I've ever been able to make a perfect rectangle...

And, I love the flower idea, too!
