It's been an epic battle with one of the items that I'm making for hayleyhandmade. I nearly lost an eye when a needle broke in my sewing machine the other day. I need goggles methinks!
 Why did I think that ________ ____ material would be good to use? Well, actually it is, I just didn't think it would be so bloody difficult to sew!

Ah please be careful! Don't blind yourself on my account  Tongue

Oh, a needle has broken in my machine like that twice in one day once! (I think I was sewing something really thick...) It made me scared to sew for a while, lol. And I did wear my glasses after that, hah.

I have a lot of ideas worked out, just waiting to buy supplies. I'm heading to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to get some stuff, and I'm so excited to get actually crafting! Thank goodness for the weekend coming up, because it's been a rough first week at school. Don't you just love professors who make papers due the 2nd and 3rd day of class?? Roll Eyes

One of the reasons I enjoy having graduated - no more papers or professors like that! Just bosses and life in the real world.  Roll Eyes

Amen to that!  I don't miss the papers either.  And I was good at it, if I do say so myself!  Tongue 

I've been working on the other swaps but in the meantime have been picking up "extras" for quaggy.  If I don't stop, I'm going to have to rent a u-haul to bring her her swap package!  Roll Eyes

Well, I've made a small. But it's a cool small.  Grin I salvaged a nifty whatsit from my closing store, hoping I'd come up with an idea-and I did! Took very little work, I must confess, but it's a one of a kind thingamabober.
I am sooo glad we have a long crafting time! I need to get though one more week of work related madness, then I can start buckling down and working on my ideas.

one item is 100% done, another is...99.9%?  it depends on if the glue is dry or not.  Roll Eyes

 I'll try! I think it might be safer to sew the rest of this item by hand Cheesy

I'm finally home, so one item is half done, I hope it will turn out how I imagined it
I have one more idea, but I need to do more stalking...

Wow - so many busy busy crafters!  I am ashamed to admit that I am still in the planning stages.  I meant to do a supply run during my lunch breaks this week - but I NEVER got an actual break - just enough time to wolf some food down 9 hous into my shift.  Then after my set of shifts, I found all I had motivation for was to go out for a few drinks with a galpal from work.  But I have a plan!!!
