good to see you got them safe n sound.

yes how could I NOT send vegemite?Huh??
I LOVE the stuff.

I am still not sure about what I am going to do with my paper.

and I have yet to finish off my embroidery project maybe tomorrow, I spent today replanting fruit trees

I've wanted to try Vegemite ever since Men at Work sang about Vegemite sandwiches Wink I hear it's an acquired taste...

And, craftydeb, I have a Mac running Mac OS X (version 10.4.11). I'll be gone most of the weekend, but if you need me...
6884  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: GRANNIES DAUGHTERS CROCHET SWAP R1 (CLOSED) Sendout-10/13/08 on: September 19, 2008 06:02:15 PM
I just finished my first dozen! I have about 30 balls of yarn from the "Little Odd Ball Yarn Swap" and I think I'm just going to crochet through each ball until I run out. Then, I'll pack up a bunch for my partners and send them out. For the first dozen, I left them all connected. I'll probably cut them apart tomorrow and weave in the starting ends tomorrow (my partners said I could leave the outer tail hanging- yay!). Each ball from the swap was supposed to be 10 yards, but this one was obviously a bit bigger- I was surprised to get 12 from one little ball.

I had to use an I hook to get the right gauge- when I used an H, they were almost exactly 1.5 inches, and I was worried that I might end up with some that were too small. With the I hook, they came out almost exactly 1.75 inches, so if I have any that are small for some reason, they should still be within the size range.

But, I'm happy that I've started! Cheesy

I received from Tanza! She made me 27 sheets!!! of paper! They are so lovely and I textural- some are bumpy-ish and some are soft. I love them! And, she made them in my favorite colors! They also have a cool speckle pattern to them- I included a close-up to try to show it. She also sent along some green linen squares (no way are they going to be used as napkins... I may make a zipper pouch with them) with an adorable embroidered trio of robots embroidered. Robots = love! And, she included some teas and a couple of samples of Vegemite for me to try. Thanks a bunch, Tanza!!

The whole lot:

I'll be using the paper to make one or two hand-bound journals- yay! Thanks again, Tanza!

I can't wait to see more in the gallery, either! Too fun! I wish I could make some of these as gifts, but it's a bit awkward to ask folks what size and type of undies they wear...

Well that's when you go to their house or something and sneak a peak at the undie drawer. lol just don't dig too deep you never know what ppl keep in there.  Tongue

I think you could guess pretty easy. I mean, undies usually just come in small, medium, large etc. So you could probably get it right.
Or ask their SO - could get ideas that way, too.

I never thought about sm, med, lg, xl since my undies come with a size number. Guess it depends on the style. I'd hate to guess wrong... oh, you mean you don't have a "large" sized butt? Wink

Asking the SO is a good idea, provided I know that him well enough to ask that kind of question... Wink

Maybe I'll have a "Decorate Your Undies" party or something instead. They can bring their own undies (new and washed) and I can provide paints and embellishments... Could be lots of fun! And silly...

Good to know about the APCs. I was (finally) able to get my package in the mail this morning, get a money order for this afternoon, get my parking space at school, and come in to find that the turtle survived the night! So, it's a good day so far Wink

I was going to get this turtle last year, but another teacher wanted it too, so I let her keep it. Good thing, too. She figured out the best way to take care of it so that the work is minimal. Good thing about turtles- they don't bite like hamsters do. Bad thing- as a first grader told me, "They have germs!" So, with a little monitoring, a turtle might not be a bad first pet (but they can live up to 70 years, so it could end up being a pet for a long time).

Back to swap talk- I can't wait for my paper to arrive. I'm already thinking about the journal I'll make with it (it'd make a fabulous gift for my sister, I think... but I may make a small one for me, too!)!

Hah! Now I don't think I dare to even try to sneak a peek! Wink

I love the bagsket! It's on my very long list of things to make, but I really don't need any more bags. Maybe by the time I get around to making one, I will Wink

And, Muria, that shirt is fabulous! I'm not offering any other opinions, though because I can't decide Wink

My second package will be in the mail tomorrow. Life has seriously gotten in the way of me getting to the PO. Today, I had a turtle delivered to my classroom after school and it took longer than I hoped it would. And then I hit traffic. I don't know if you can do an international package at the APC, but I wasn't even going to try. Tomorrow, I'll be at the door when the PO opens!  And then I can finish up my Poppet this weekend!

Did you forget to take pics? It seems that whenever I forget to take pics, my partner never posts. It's like a curse Wink I've sent a couple of great packages that never got posted because my partner never posted pics.  Tongue

Maybe she's just caught up with school or work (I know how that is). If she doesn't you could always describe them to us...
