Details of swap:
Ever wished that when you stepped out your door you were stepping into history? Do you love the Tudor period and the royalty from that time? If you enjoy watching the film, TV, or reading about them then this is the swap for you. Items can be crafted based on actual history or from the TV show that is on BBC America right now "The Tudors".

This will be a 5 point swap. Changed so that you can decide what sizes you want to make.

There has been a bit of confusion as to what is a large, medium, and small item.  So here's a handy dandy guide.  This is not totally set in stone, but is a rough estimate of sizes described by time it takes to make package, by physical size and by cost:

By Time
-3 points = 3 or more hours
-2 points = 2 or more hours
-1 point = 2 or less hours

By Size
-3 = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-2 = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-1 = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-3 = $30 or more
-2 = $10-$30 dollars
-1= $10 or less

Any additional spoilage is up to you and your partner!

Updated the size of the swap, maybe that will be more fun so people can decide what sizes to make for themselves. I see a lot have looked hopefully more will sign up or this is going to be a very small swap! lol C'mon people, the water is warm.
