The bag is being made strictly b/c I like to sew and get great enjoyment out of it.  Shoot...making her son and grandson happy for most of their lives hasn't earned me brownie points...a bag certainly isn't going to do it.   Tongue  (I wish.)

Well, my two DDs were reading on my bed; DH, DS, and MIL went to visit the other in-laws so I got a burst of energy and wrapped both  boxes (two partners) and even wrote the two notes! 

I am sad though.  I always have fun with my swaps, but this one was particularly fun.  I'm not sure why this one more so than others.  I'm also really, really excited to see what my partners send me.

We'll have to do this swap again...maybe in the summer?

OMG I can't  believe you are ready to send.  I am gonna be last minute.  I was off for the holidays and things kept getting in the way of me crafting for this one.  I did manage to finish up two other swaps though.  I have started and will be able to finish one item in the evening afterwork.  I am in hopes I can get off closer to my  8 hr shift ending but I doubt it, usually I am there 12 hours or so.  Lets just say I already have a new years resolution in mind.  I have everything planned so I will be piddling all week long and wishing for Friday to arrive so I can mega craft!

I had an epic fail.  I really wanted to embellish one of the items I made for one of my partners, but the equipment I had just was not working for the material I was using, and it mangled the project Sad  So I had to start again, and it will have to be more plain Sad  I had another idea, but really am nervous trying it out in case it is another fail Sad

Same thing happened to me today. I just stood there with the iron in my hand, mouth agape dumbstruck at what I had just done.
But tomorrow is another day, and I do feel accomplished because I got the Christmas decorations up today!

It's a fine line between 'hobby' & 'mental illness

I have a list made and some of the supplies I need bought.  I came down with a cold over the weekend and didn't get much done.  I also get paid Friday so I can shop for the goodies to put in the bag.
