How can you pick out a favorite FO?  I've done so many different things that I felt good about, that it would be impossible to pick out one.

Calluna, if you're joining this swap, I definitely have to consider it.  I know that whatever you come up with will be awesome.

Yes, you must join! Especially after the flattery!  Grin As for favorite FO (thank you AQ! And hello to Snort!), I had to narrow it down to papercrafts first and then go with my first gut response. Just picking one out of many favorites is fine; I think it's the "why" part of the question that means the most, because that gives a sense of the inner workings of our swap partners' creativity and values.

Thank you, Penlowe, for posting the categories; I see now that even knowing the categories I still can't start early because I need to wait to find out what my swap partner likes. But I can start looking at images/paper in terms of those categories, which is a helpful filter when overwhelmed with too much paper to look at!  Smiley

TAOJ gets the credit for the great questionaire & rules Smiley I stoleded them from the Yarnie Scavenger Hunt sign up. I actually cut it down a bit as there were questions that didn't translate to paper very well.

I'm sending in my questionaire tomorrow. I need to seriously think on some of the questions. I'm bound to change or add something to it between now and then. Hope someone can relate. I agree on the one favorite craft project thing everyones mentioned. I have too many! I'm proud of all of my finished projects and can't decide. Cheesy

D'oh! I knew I'd miss one YARN in there somewhere.

No categories don't need to be literal, especially if postal regulations would prohibit!

Yes FO is Finished Object. It's used a bit more among the yarn & fabric crafters but it's a good all purpose term along with WiP & UFO. PiGS are pretty much strictly fabric & yarn folks.

Work in Progress
Un Finished Object
Project in a Grocery Sack, when you have all the materials for a specific thing organized together but haven't started yet.

I thought of that too with botanical, but really it could be pages from a botanical book  Wink
