6971  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Favorite Recipes Mini Swap! Sign-ups CLOSED Send by: Sept. 2 on: August 22, 2008 12:05:04 PM
I worked on min last night, but I realized that I need to get something at Staples. And, since tomorrow is their Teacher Appreciation Day, I figured I'd wait until tomorrow to get it. So, I may be finished by the end of the weekend!

Okay! I went into my classroom yesterday and have decided to not enter it again until Wednesday. I just don't feel like setting it all up. I have some stuff to hang, but I'll let it "evolve." So, even though almost every other room in the building is brightly decorated and the building will be open on Sat. AND Sun., I am boycotting it and using my last 2 days of vacation for this swap!

So, I will finally have the time to pick up where I left off about a month ago (for it was only a couple of hours after I got back from the fabric store that I hurt my back), and I will be a sewing fiend! Saturday- longtimegeek's project (and mine, too!) will be tackled. And on Sunday, I'll start Poppeting! For some reason, I'm terrified of making a Poppet- but I have tons of supplies, so I just need to GET OVER IT!! Tanza, I'll be sure to make all of the mistakes on mine, so yours comes out lovely Wink

I'm hoping to get my items in the mail by Friday (or first thing Saturday). I knew I'd be down to the wire...

I definitely like the open look of the first one, but if you could mix it up a bit more instead of 2 by 2 rows. Maybe instead of joining at the same point each time, it could help. It looks like you only have 2 colors of stars. Is it possible to add in a third color? That might help you to avoid the 2 in a row deal.

I'm sure it will look lovely, no matter how you decide to arrange it! Can't wait to see the finished product!

Whoo-hoo! While I was checking in, I heard the mailman clank the lid of my mailbox. So, when it was clear (I'm still in my PJs...), I went and grabbed the stack of mail to find my last 2 dotees!

This one is from squirrelgirl, and as I was taking her out of the envelope, she whispered that her name was Svetlana. I love how you stamped her face. I was thinking of doing that, but I couldn't find my ink pad...




And here's the one from Linda P! She's made from flag fleecy fabric and has a mirror for a face. It doesn't show well in the pics, but she has little beads sewn on the flags where the stars are and, in addition to the beads around her face, she has a crinkly bunch of white beads at the top of her head. Between the flags and the fact that the beads at the top of her head remind me of the famed (and fabled) Betsy Ross's ruffled cap, I'm going to name her Betsy!



Thanks ladies! And, as soon as I sew Sewphie's face back on, I'll take a group shot Wink
6975  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Days of the Week Undies Swap .:Signups CLOSED:. on: August 22, 2008 08:38:04 AM
I'm forging ahead today with my undies- flying blind in a way. I'm doing part one today. And then on Monday, I can do the next part. I think everything should be ready for a Friday mail-out (or first thing Saturday). If I don't mess them up...

Bummer! I'll have to bow out of the next round. School will be starting for me next week, and then I'll have to start focusing on Christmas gifts...

I am officially now scared of pants Shocked actually just scared of ruining my partners pants Smiley

I think it's made more "frightening" because we didn't get the undies, so if we botch it, we might not be able to replace them!

I realized today that I can't really finish the practice set, because I need to do everything at once due to the limited supplies I have. Plus, because I've been in "la-la-la last days of vacation" mode, I keep getting distracted. So, I've seriously blown my time frame. So, I'll be crossing my fingers and praying to the goddess of crafts (who is she anyway?) and hoping that it all works.

If not, then I have no idea what I'll be doing... but I do work well under pressure...

Those monsters rock! And, Eliea, you might have to make a winter-themed Poppet for the next round, and another one to match the next theme, and the one after that...

Smiley I am glad you like your Dios De Los Dotee, Lmcbride.

Dios De Los Dotee...tee-hee!

And, I'm glad my dolls have started to arrive! I feel like I've mailed off my children...

I really liked Bleu, but I did learn that I need to make the features bigger, or the "face" smaller. But, she still has a bit of charm, Oui?

I'm glad the Hipster PDA made it safely, and that the hole in the package was purely your husband's doing Wink

You'll find that it actually does come in handy- much simpler than trying to put things in to a Palm Pilot Cheesy  And, you also get to avoid the frustration of losing all of your data if you've forgotten to back up your Palm and the battery dies Wink

As for other swap items, I never even saw that beautiful scarf in the original thread! How did I miss it!

Everything so far has been fantastic! The painting goes perfectly with the trout and eagle shower curtain, too Wink
