6881  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Summer Reading Swap-Signups:Closed; Sendouts:7/30 on: June 19, 2008 07:38:00 PM
If the series is short, I tend to buy the series. But for longer ones, the library is the way to go! I used to teach middle school and we had a 20 minute "silent" reading block every day, so I bought a bunch of series books and, after I read them, I put them on the shelf. And, it bugged me to no end when a kid would lose one of the books in the series...grrrr...

Hmmmm...I'm thinking about joining in on this. I'm crazy busy for the month of July, but I should be able to pull together some small items. Plus, I'll be out at UMass in Amherst, MA for a bit of the month, so I'm guessing I'll find a good place for used books. Like a few other folks have mentioned, I tend to pass off the "non-keepers" to other folks.

My first love is a good mystery (ripped through the Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden series as a kid, then moved on to Agatha Christie). Thrillers come next, then well-crafted fiction (love Stephen King, John Irving, Barbara Kingsolver, Jodi Picoult). I am in the middle of reading a "romantic mystery" and "Inkspell" by Cornelia Funke.

I participated in the Reading Rainbow swap, and based on the discussion in the thread, I started reading the Discworld series and am really enjoying it so far! So, I'm open to new genres as well.

Now that I've thought about it a teeny bit, I think I'll just have to send in my info. The timing just seems to work...

Yay!

I made mine with mint chocolate  candy melts on the outside and they were heavenly...just the right amount of mint!

Probably the only time I ever made anything that got eaten up completely...

Thanks for the added info on the yellow burst and for sharing your images! Very cool indeed! Now, if I can find some printable shrink paper, I'll be in business Wink

And, the tree pendant is fantastic! I really have to try some layering soon...

I had not enough stitches on round 5, so I added to make the right amount (or so I thought), but then I had an extra on round 6. Hopefully  round 7 works out right!

I had trouble starting, too. The first time I didn't read carefully, so when I went to the next round the directions didn't make sense. Then, after I fixed that, it looked like I had extra stitches, so I redid it twice!

Cute cards, MissDisney! I may have to steal some of your ideas Wink

Maybe you could do show pics and then count the folks that way! I'd do it, but I should have been in bed half an hour ago- early meeting tomorrow...

But, for those of you who have done this month's square, did you have any troubles with the early rounds? I was pretty careful and my numbers still weren't coming out right somehow (I really love when patterns include stitch counts so I know that I'm on the right track...the word "around" doesn't really help me much!). I finagled things so it doesn't look too bad so far, but I can't figure out where I went wrong...

I've finished through round 6, and I think that after round 7 it'll be smooth sailing... so maybe by the end of the weekend I'll have a finished square...

Yay!

Cool cell phone charm and zipper pull! How did you do the yellow "burst" one?

Even better! I love that even their username is a secret! Extra special and doubly secret! Tee-hee!

I love surprises Wink

Gorgeous necklace! I love how the shrinkie is framed (is it just glued into the frame, or is it wrapped with clay and the baked again?). Love the colors and the arrangement. I'd be wearing it all the time too!

And, is it Little Bo Peep? Who lost her sheep? And didn't know where to find them?

I also love the bookmark. I definitely see a couple of those in my future!
