Signups are closed, partners have been assigned...and partner info has been sent out to all concerned Cheesy

Now that you've received the answers to the swap questionnaire, please take some time to study the questionnaire (because it's pretty much a cheat sheet for creating something fabulous for your partner Wink).
We have almost 4 weeks before sendouts, so there is ample time to craft. 
If you have not received a message from me, please let me know ASAP!


Other minor housekeeping details...
1.  Please continue to post in this swap thread (questions about the swap, brainstorming about swap projects, how you're doing, teaser posts about what you're making, etc.) so that we know things are going well for you.

2.  When you're ready to send, don't forget to PM myself and your partner with a DCN or info about a postal receipt so that we can get giddy with excitement (that someone's about to receive a very cool item in the mail)! Grin

3.  Have fun.  Seriously.  That's what swapping's about.  Have fun crafting something for your partner, and have fun anticipating that you'll be receiving something awesome that's made just for you!


Happy crafting, and for the gals in the US, have a wonderful holiday weekend!

You organized a great swap! I'm sure this is just the beginning of our swap addictions! lol

It's been awhile since we've checked in. How are you guys doing? I plan on posting a bit of a teaser later, since I'm fairly happy with how my medium item is turning out. The longest part of the whole process was definitely making the yarn. Took forever and I got little tiny scraps of fabric all over me!

Anyway, I hope you guys are having good weeks, I hope peachy is having a good semester so far, and I hope everyone is having a good time crafting!

Courtney, school is going well, thanks!

I am having so much fun crafting, I'm trying to finish up my medium soon and then onto the smalls. I am very happy with the way everything is turning out.

Teaser pics are a great idea, I plan on posting some soon too. Looks like we're all juggling mediums and study at the same time! Good combination, keep the hands busy crafting while the brain recovers from study and then switch Wink

As promised:


Oh my god, what is that ugly thing? Ha! I promise, it recently got much cuter and is being made entirely out of my old pants! (After losing 100 lbs, I was kind of wondering what to do with them anyway, and frankly there is just a ton of material to work with)

No worries about colors, plenty of blues and greys, and very neat looking! I'm actually a little sad to part with it, but I'm pretty excited to see how you like it. This has been a little bit like crafting for the holidays, but instead of a "Oh, thanks. Cool." I'm crafting for someone who actually appreciates how much work this stuff takes!

I'm so excited!
