If you love and miss these fine Brits and want to celebrate the years of laughter they have given us through crafting, join in on this swap.  

Original discussion thread

...



If you want to participate, fill out this information to send to organizer, with the subject title Monty Python Swap:

Swap Requirements - I am thinking of making this a 6 point swap, where one point is a small item, 2 points is a medium item and 3 points is a large item.  At least one of the items should be a large or a medium.  It will be up to partners if they want to make more or not.  Extras not required, and up to individual partners to communicate between each other if they want to include extras.  Personally, I think there is nothing wrong with a bit of spoiling.  Please try to communicate in the thread and with your partners at least once a week, and give the organizer a heads up about progress, when you send/receive, and if possible, please post pics when I have a gallery up.  If you can't post pics, please have your partner do so if they can.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

I was hoping this would come up soon! I'll probably sign up a little closer to March. I want to send out my Princess Bride package before I start something new.

My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

I love Monty Python soooooo much. I'm just not sure I should take it on cuz I am so overwelmed right now. I'll have to think about it. I want to, but can I fit it in? What would John Cleese do? Humm.

oh wow...
never mind what would cleese do.  palin is the nice one.  he would join LOL

not that i necessarily can.  but i am seriously tempted.

BTW
i wonder if some would want to include also unofficial spin-offs of python?  like faulty towers all the terry gilliam movies with various pythoners in them.  especially Brazil.

If people are interested in spin offs like Fawlty Towers, or works other members of the Flying Circus did afterwards (I like some of them too!), then do mention it in your questionnaires when sending it in).

Thank you also to Dragonflywer who has agreed to co organize if the swap goes >24 members.

I'll be watching this one, and might sign up. I am unsure. The convention I am working on is kicking my butt, which has me worried about sending out on time on the swaps I am in. >.<

Hopefully I will get them all finished this week though.

My Swaps:
