Glad to see some folks posting that they aren't completely finished and shipping their swap already!  Geez Louise, some of you overachievers were starting to stress me OUT!   Smiley  Have decided I will take my time to make something good rather than feel rushed and thus, make crap.  Besides, it takes time (and heavy lifting) to go through my fabric stash!
Happy crafting to you all!


you can always count on me to procrastinate! LOL

Don't let it worry you.  It seems to be a quirk of mine.  I get involved in a new swap/project/whatever and get a little too focused I guess.  I have never been able to just do a tiny bit here, and a little bit there...  the down side to that is, you hit burnout pretty quickly, which is probably why I am always looking for something different to do.  My latest thing?...well, I've decided to give painting a go...

btw- Munora has recieved and will have pics up when she is able

I get craft tunnel vision too!  Once I figure out what  I want to make and how I want to do it, I go go go until I'm done lol  That's what happened with this swap.  I got my idea, figured out how to do it, and couldn't stop lol  I've got one more little thing to make and I'm waiting on an extra goodie that I ordered.

I can be like that too. once I start something I find it hard to put it down until it's done.
all I have left to do on the purse is sew the other side of the strap onto the purse! I did one half and then got bored with it (I suck at hand sewing btw lol) AND I made a filler! so I'm that much closer to being finished wahoo Cheesy
thank goodness for Heroes haha. I like crafting while I watch TV bc I like the background noise and it gets me away from this blasted computer XD

All done...and everything is in the box, sealed and addressed.  Now I just need to get over to the PO.  Sometimes that seems like the most difficult part.   Cheesy

I just got started yesterday Smiley I drew up the way I want the front to look and starting working on it...changed up a detail and now dd said "If I carried a purse, I'd want one like the _____ purse you are working on"

I printed off tutes for various stuffers and will see which I prefer to make once I've got the purse body down...I'm dreaming of this purse at night and have to get it out of my system!

I'm about 70% done. I bought the rest of things I needed yesterday and I hope to do the rest this weekend. This week I have to sew patches on my friends leather vests  Tongue. They all asked me at the last minute and they need them this weekend for some kind of biker parade or something. They're lucky I love them so much.

I did receive from Stitch81 yesterday. I posted pics in the gallery. She sent me a beautiful package.

I have finished everything!  The purse was pretty fast once I got started!   I hope to pack it all up, kiss it goodbye and mail it tomorrow!
