Yeah, I was thinking too that the 10 hobbies/such are just for inspiration and the partner doesn't have to use them all. The questionnaire was also great for some further ideas! But yeah, I'm sure I'm going to face the problem that I want to give my partner everything she likes. But I think we just have to find a way to fit the best ideas into one perfect bag for our partners. Smiley

You ladies are all correct. The questionnaire is simply for each partner to get a good idea of what their swap partner is about. You can use one idea or all of them.... it's your call.

Idea of the swap is to make a bag/purse/tote that embodies a talent, theme, hobby, and/or likes of your partner. It has to be worth at least 3 points.

Opps  Shocked  Sorry for the confusion.  My comments were not intended to stress anyone out.  I do know it's for ONE bag for a hobbie/interest my partner may have.  I have NO problems with this swap, nothing but excitement and creative juice overflow.   Now, I'm seeing "problem" may have not been the best choice of words.  I'm also seeing how my sense of humor doesn't lend itself to written expression very well.

In the original "problem" post I was just laughing at my list thinking "ohhh, I could do something like this for crochet.  But wait maybe this for sewing would be more fun.  Then again, I could do pockets and tassels for cross stitch."  See...easily distracted.  I've just got an Ideas and Possibilities list as long as my arm.

Superhooker, that bag is amazing.  I love the color and the handle and everything about it.  One of these days I'll learn how to knit cables and patterns.  Until then I'll just have to drool over your creations.
