Anna's right!  As long as you and your partner have agreed, there's no problem.  Remember, this is a low-stress swap!  Panul, I'm sure your partner will be so happy with your work and will really appreciate the extras.  I can't wait to see photos!!

Yeah yeah yeah! Two great things:

1. The radishes in my garden are coming up! They're so cute, with their little baby radish leaves...I'm proud of them:)

2. I finished something! It took so much frickin work it should be a large, if not a medium, but it's only a couple inches big so....small it is. But I'm pretty excited, I hope my partner likes it.

I'm sure I will love it.  Now I'm curious as to what it is. Smiley 

I am almost done redoing my medium, though there are still some components to it I have yet to start.  I keep changing my mind about the smalls, but I am pretty sure I know what I'll do.  I probably won't be sending until the 15th at the soonest.  We'll see.

She needs some fabulously cheap name, to go with her price!

Amazing find! The farmers' market I usually go to is one of those parking lot deals and only has food. I guess the huge markets in St. Paul and Minneapolis have other things, but my mobility issues make them a problem. (They open earlier in the year, too, so it would be great if they were possible for me.)

squee!  Received my package today!  Thanks, panul! 

I feel guilty opening it before I'm finished crafting all of your items . . .

As soon as I open and revel in the joy of lovely farmer's market crafts, I'll post pictures.

The St. Paul farmer's market has soap and trinkets, and sometimes Hmong embroidery and toys, but definitely no dress forms!   I don't know if there are any vintagey sellers at the Mpls one.  So I don't think you're missing out too much, Panul. 

I have a really similar dress form that I thrifted, but yours looks to be in better shape.  My adjusters are all rusty and bent, so changing the size of the thing is tricky.  Plus the cardboard boobs are kind of warped from water damage (incurred before I got my hands on it).  It works for pinning hems, and displaying my hat collection, but that's about it.

Oh!  I almost forgot to say I finally got a start on my medium that I actually like.  Knock on wood.  I think it's going to be pretty cool.
