6821  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Leap into the New Year FROG Swap. (sign-ups CLOSED, send-outs 2/22) on: February 20, 2008 07:10:44 PM
Wow! I'm doubly glad you extended the sendouts. I had another item to finish (well start and finish, truth be told) today and I expected it to take about an hour. But, I didn't use a pattern or tutorial, so it didn't go exactly like I had planned. But, I still like how it came out (and seriously contemplated keeping it), even though it took me a few more hours than I had planned. Which meant that the item with all of the bits (25 parts if I include them all Tongue) had to be put on the back burner. I've got almost all of the parts finished and will assemble them in the morning. So, I should be able to send tomorrow!! Yay!

Wow! midnight, that looks amazing! The color combo- I really, really like it! The pink totally makes it. I can't wait to see the entire afghan completed. Too bad we have to wait 10 more months Wink

So, as stupid as I'm about to sound, I can personally say that the Rainbow Fairy series is pretty darn cool.

My neighbour (um, like 6 or 7) was ranting and raving about how awesome they are. So my curiosity got to me - I wanted to see what little kids were reading nowadays  Roll Eyes
So I read one or two. Pretty boring for my age, but I can for sure see them liking them. I think it took me around a half hour each - maybe less Oo

And I want to read The Kite Runner too ^^

My oldest is 8 and she has a vast majority of the fairy books (Rainbow, Weather, Jewel, etc).  She likes them and reads through them pretty darn quick.  Thank goodness for Scholastic book orders!  lol

Okay...I confess, I'm a HUGE fan of the "Time Warp Trio" series by Jon  Scieszka. They are written for 4th grade, approximately. I own almost all of them...but then I brought them in to school and a couple disappeared. I wouldn't mind if kids were keeping the books because they loved them, but it's usually because they lose them...


And I really liked The Kite Runner, but I thought that the ending was a bit too "neat."

hotfudge, you put together an excellent package! It was so thoughtful of you to include things for the kids, too! Great book selection, too. I really like the look of the corner bookmark, and the pink one just makes me want to learn filet crochet (it's on the to-do list...which is lengthy Wink ).

This is such a neat idea! I have a couple of old mousepads kicking around, and I could use a pin cushion. Plus, there is the added bonus of having the jar to store random bits in- if you only knew how many times I have misplaced my package of hand-sewing needles *sigh*

What kind of glue did you use?

Welcome, Krisnotes!

And, pjherbert, I love how those squares look together! Your afghan will be fabulous looking when it is finished!

And, is that Dover/Durham, NH? I live in MA...

That makes more sense, I was imagining Dover and Durham in the UK, which are at other ends of the country to each other!

That's the thing about New England... many of the towns have names from "Old" England. I live in Worcester, for example...

bronzfrog, I could kiss you! And now I can go to bed with a clear conscience...so I can get up tomorrow and craft some more! Which, I am truly happy about. This has been the most crafty vacation ever!!

Thanks for the added info! I might have to make a set for myself...for when my friends bring their kids over...really Wink

i sent my stuff today! why are the lines at the post office always so damn long? i went to dover and then to durham, which was almost worse!

The line was long when I went, too. But, then one of the PO guys told me I could use the Automated Postal Center and walked me through how to do it (meaning he did the whole thing for me Wink ). Got a DC# and everything! But, if there is no line, I'd still rather interact with a person Wink
