I think I found enough fabric for my first project.  Smiley  Once I get it cut out, it shouldn't take long at all.

Wow -- some of you are so fast!  With work and life getting busy this time of year, I think I'm going to need all the time we have to put the package together to send... I can't wait to see what others have put together though!

Well I have gathered my colours together at least.  If I could just manage to stay awake past 8:30 some night, I might get started.  Damn cold!

This has proven to be more difficult than I thought!  Does anyone else keep thinking, "I just need to get _____."  I do think the challenge is fun, though.

I was just thinking this last night!  I was working away and frogged a bunch, restarted, frogged some more.  I kept thinking if I just had...

Then I realized it was just a bad day for crafting and went to bed.  I feel better but I'm still itching to shop.  I think I have a problem, maybe a 12 step program is in order....

Well, I have one thing done for my partner. I am making some progress. Still working on another, and I think I will have to make something else too. I have too many ideas!

I caught myself several times thinking If I could run over to the craft store and get _____ then i'd be all set. 

With the grow a bag I made Kayrun I wanted to go to the store about 8 times.

First i looked over by 16 inch box of fabric on despair. I seem to be nearly out of the colors she liked.  After crossing my eyes a few times I realized the teal prom dress and the remnant asian print would go together thanks to the little teal flowers in the print.

Then I wanted to use teal ribbon but blew the last of it on the journal so I hunted through my ribbon supply drawer (I've got a whole drawer and that doesn't include stuff in bags for ongoing projects, did I really need to go to the store??!) and found the purple ribbon. since the pattern accent fabric has purple flowers i thought it would work. 

I was dying to go to the craft store for the buttons but then remembered these little clear beads that were really shank buttons up with my beading supplies.  I painted then to make them match and used random buttons on the inside of the fabric to make sure the little suckers stayed put and didn't rip out the fabric.   

I had similar cravings for the store for the other bag but managed to do a decent job painting the fabric.

I loved crafting for this swap.  there is something liberating about makingit from the stuff I already have!

I'm following this same BND principle for most of my holiday crafting.  so far I've done over a dozen gifts completely from stash and several more mostly from stash. Need to stash bust before my closet busts open.

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.
