-Large = 3 points

Yes you guys can join! I don't want to exclude you, maybe your partner can craft something for the person you know that is pregnant and some things for you too. I'd like to keep it on track with pregnancy and post pregnancy stuff, so as long as you guys are willing to do that (maybe you'll get a great baby shower gift to give) then I am ok with that. Justmake sur when filling out the questionaire that you state you are NOT pregnant, but your friend is and fill in the rest for yourself and for your friend

For example

Any colors you love/hate? (my username) Love neutrals, hate flouresent (pregnant frends name) Loves pink, hates greens
Any patterns you love/hate?
Anything specific you need for your baby or you? (friends name) diaper bag
What kind of crafts can you do? (my username)
What kind of crafts would you like to receive? (my username) fun t-shirts, bag, hats (friends name) diaper bag, onesies, socks, anthing really
Are there any materials or crafts that you do NOT want to receive?
Do you have any allergies? (my username) no (friends name) wool
When are you due?

I hope you get the idea!

see, I totally want to do this!!!  i have so many great ideas....  If only I knew who I was crafting for now, and all the specifics..... I'd totally have the time.....  I'm still on the fence.......  To dive in with 2weeks to craft or not to dive in... that is the question.....
