If you haven't heard from your partner lately, please let me know. Sendouts are coming up and I would like to head off any issues before there's a lot of sending going on.

Smiley I'm still here. I haven't gotten everything done... >> Or even mostly, but I do have a couple things finished, and I think I've got an amazing pattern here. I'm making a draft for myself, and if I can figure out how to add a zipper top to it, then this pattern will be it. If not, I'll probably make one as an extra because the shape and size is really awesome. (I hope Silverwing will think so as well.) Smiley
I've gathered all my supplies for the theme I believe I am going to do for her, so I hope that the fabrics will work  WITH me instead of against me. Sad I went to my walmart earlier today (bout 10pm yesterday, actually) to find some more fabric to work with for this swap... and found out the fabric section was like, 80% completed... what they had left was unacceptable, so I might have to work with what I have here alone. (Except for the occasional non fabric odds and ends.) :/

Silver pm'd me recently to show me a rough draft sketch of the bag shape, and it was SO cute. I am very excited! Smiley

So I'll be bringing the bag to my ladies at my knitting group tonight. I have reservations about the bag, but if they like it, I'll send it.
If not, I'll amp myself up early Thursday morning and make another great bag! Sounds crazy right? Ha.

nah, that sounds like something I'd do  Cheesy  I get major swap anxiety....

Haven't been around lately, swamped with schoolwork.  But, after two more midterms this Friday I'll finally get to sit down for the whole weekend and hopefully finish off everything Smiley

Going to be down to the wire with crafting on this one!  Time has gotten away from me on this one, also right after signing up having to deal with a large amount of personal issues didn't help my motivation either  Undecided  Why does Feb have to be so short??!!  LOL!  Fear not, I will finish and send on time even if it means staying up WAY late on nights when I should be sleeping to get up for work.

Thanks thedreamer, makes me feel a little better.
Actually, all of the ladies loved it - and they would tell me if something was wrong with it, haha.
It turns out it looks a little odd while empty, but once you fill it up, it looks better. Which can be said about most purses anyways.

So it's all packed up and ready to go. Will be shipping out on Thursday morning!

Well, I'm one that hasn't heard.  I already Pm'd Sevs, but I'm also kind of mad at myself because I hadn't heard from her for a while, but sent anyway thinking she was just busy and stuff! Hopefully she is! I am almost more anxious about hearing how my partner liked my bag than anything else.  It got there MONDAY and no word.  Sad

I received from mindboggld yesterday, but I am waiting until I ship hers to open it.  This is a self-imposed something on my part to give me incentive to finish and ship.  I have discussed it with her, and she says she is cool with it.  It is sitting in full view of my sewing table.
