I am nowhere near being done at all.  I'll probably have to send a hitch late

I am still hoping to send on time, but on top of the supply probs I have done something to my foot and can hardly walk. Funny how these sorts of things can make crafting difficult.

Don't worry, I don't mind if you send a little late. Just try your best! I hope your foot gets better soon Smiley

I resemble this remark!  Wink

On that note, I should get off the computer and on to the crafting!

But first, a link to the steampunk photos I took at my party last week http://www.flickr.com/photos/midnightoak/tags/steampunk/

and another link to photos someone else took at my party (because mine are mostly portraits) http://www.flickr.com/photos/choccoweeble/sets/72157603761542125/

Sadly the lighting means they aren't as inspiring as I would have liked.

but look out for Shazrasha with an eyepatch  Grin

I've got small item(s) #1 done. Small item #2 is proving slightly more difficult, but I think I've got the kinks out and will get it done Thurs. night, most likely. And the large item was done, and practical and neat, but now I'm thinking it needs some more embellishment because I'm not sure if it "reads" as steampunk. Although that's based on someone who's admittedly not into steampunk seeing it and saying that it needed tons of buckles. I'm not so sure, but it does need maybe something... Besides, who ever said "practical" and "decorative" were mutually exclusive?

I'm definitely mailing stuff out by Tuesday at the latest, but I'm still muddling over some stuff. I think this is the most swap anxiety/fretting I've ever experienced, but I'm so psyched about it, too! I can't wait for the gallery.

If it's any consolation I keep worrying that my mostly completed large item isn't steampunky enough either  Undecided But I'm fairly sure it's something my partner will like, so am trying to keep the anxiety at bay and not add random things to it (especially cos I don't think Redheadgeek would want that Grin). Eek, hope I'm right  Roll Eyes

Otherwise coming along nicely and will hopefully I will remain on track to send on time!

Good call!

And I don't want to just slap gears on everything. I'll probably just add the stuff that would increase functionality *and* steaminess, and leave off the stuff that I would be adding purely so that I felt like it was steampunk "enough." And then quit worrying about it. Smiley
