Yeah, looking back on it the themes I chose were kinda tough, sorry Slingmomma! Yours, however, are super easy! I have several ideas and I already have what I'm putting in the middle of the ball, though I am nowhere near done! Excuse me, a child is screaming...

I'm not finding them hard to craft for... it's just narrowing it down to one! If I could incorporate everything I want to make into one giant theme... you would end up with a massive yarn ball Roll Eyes I tend to want to craft for everyone in the family lol so I am having a hard time picking one theme or 2 themes that go together.... I'll see how things work out, if all else fails, you will end up with extras not included in the specific theme lol

I was just thinking about your yarn ball you made me in my first yarn ball swap! I haven't finished the purse pattern you sent me quite yet?!? I was almost finished it then looked at the measurements of what it was supposed to be and I was way off.... so I frogged the whole thing, took it apart and started over, with a bigger hook Roll Eyes Next time I will for sure to a gauge swatch lol

I think I found the perfect center to jexxican's ball today! Even if I don't pick the theme that it goes with, I know that it will be incredibly loved ! It was awesome! Grin

Slingmomma: I know I've already said this but I already have your center! I am so excited! Even with just the 2 or 3 ideas I have right now I know this is gonna be a happy yarn ball for you! It's gonna be purty too!

I'm sooo close to being done!!  After struggling at first, one of the themes finally hit me what to do!  My partner and I did agree to do multiple themes so...I'm mostly one theme but one of the other themes I couldn't resist to throw some items in! 

I'm going shopping for the yarn today and then I should be ready to wrap it all up tonight Smiley  Wrapping it is the best part I think...maybe except for unwrapping!  Tongue

That explains why it took me an hour and a half to unwrap my ball from you last time...

Looks like everyone's doing good. Let's keep it up.

Went sho-o-pping today! I got the yarn for the pattern; they didn't have the one I wanted, so I had to improvise, but it'll work out anyway Wink

Have a few little things to finish up then it's wrapping time!!! I need to find somewhere to print out the pattern though.
