I'm not completely sure about my sizes now that I have been looking through more of the swaps.  Some of the items that are considered medium for some are small for me, time wise and I classified it as so.  I also don't really classify my crafts by size from the amount, because I just have so many supplies saved up at home.  Miss Barbara's large item didn't cost me much to make but took a lot of time.  I think I ultimately spent 7+hrs on it across multiple days (stopping when my fingers hurt too much to continue). 

Some of the things that are listed as a large (necklace, earrings, bracelet set for example) really really really doesn't feel "large" to me because jewellery is one of my strong suits. Whereas on the other hand, I CAN knit, but it probably takes me about 4 times as long as anyone else so something that I would feel is definitely "large" by time standards, doesn't really feel "large" by any of the other standards! I guess it's really to each their own.
That is EXACTLY how I feel, Teamama. 

I'm not too bad with the first time swap anxiety though.  I love all the stuff I made for Miss Barbara, and I know she is gonna love it all, too.  I did a good job stalker her and we talked a lot.  ^_^

I thought I would post this here since it's pretty much appropriate. Last night I finished my tree quilt that I started a while back. It feels like such a huge accomplishment!

Thanks  Grin

I'm just about done with the package, way earlier than I expected, but it will probably be a while before I get to the post office.

Driving three hours in each direction this weekend to visit DH's mom.  Guess what I'll be doing while he's driving?  Grin  Good thing some of the details are portable! 
I really need to kick it into gear this weekend as we're part of a three-family garage sale next weekend. 
Although it would help if I stopped second-guessing myself and just went with it already!  Huh
