I made progress, not a lot but some. I did finally hit the point in the pattern where it begins repeats and I can get into a rhythm though, so I expect it will go much faster.

DH is kinda dense...(why that is news to me after 22 years together, I don't know  Undecided)...I had an ENTIRE conversation with him about the size of my partner's package (WOW!  Shocked  That sounded kinky!  Cool) and how it had to be big to accomodate what I was making her and how I would help with postage (he pays for and mails out my swap packages  Kiss) and he admired what I was making and wanted me to keep one of the items...yada, yada, yada...

Fast forward to yesterday when I reminded him-yet AGAIN-to take the box with him to mail and he glances at it and replies:  "It's kind of big, isn't it?"

Oy.  Tongue

Oh my!  Miss Barbara, when you get to my age, you need to have things to LOOK FORWARD to!!!  LOL!  I am enjoying the luxury of anticipation and guessing!

You know what it is, margiej, is that my memory is already shot.  And I have accepted it, and compensated for it.  So when I remember something, and remember to remind the person that needs reminding, and then that person forgets; well, then I'm not very forgiving.

Follow any of that??  Grin

Have gotten stalled on the _____ for this swap, actually have been just putting it off for some dumb reason!  I have gotten involved in making a Teesha Moore-style bag and it is so addictive!  I made my first one recently, and loved it, so decided to tackle another, which is going quickly.  Anyway, I think the far-off send out deadline has affected my motivation and sense of urgency!  LOL!  I must get started back to finishing the _____!

Ooh, pretty!!  I finally freed up some crafting time and will now solely devote all of my free time to finishing up Jemimah's package.  Smiley  I'm hoping to send by the end of the month so that she can open her package with the rest of us.  2/3 done!  Woot!!

I got to spend some significant time on Lana's package today - Embroidery on denim is a lot easier than I feared, but it still might take a little longer than I anticipated since the design is larger than I am used to. Yay for having a month left and not feeling much pressure to finish early since there is no chance she would be wearing it in the weather we are having.
