Checking in!  LIFE IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!  Our house we rent is being forclosed (which we have known for a little bit but were told we could stay until bank gave us a notice to leave) on but we suddenly got notice on the 18th that the bank would like for us to be out but Nov 16th.   WHAT?!  I was expecting like a 90 day notice or SOMETHING... There were negotiable terms but being out sooner than later worked to our benefit but wow, to find a suitable home in that amount of time when it took us 6 months to find THIS place (which we've lived in for only 6 months  Cry )  Anyway, as luck would have it I found a place in a day (I even like it better than the current one), and had the utilities in my name and keys in my hand the next day.  SO, things are working out for us but it's right in the middle of everyone visiting and now I still have to pack my whole house and and and... a big saving grace is that I thought sendouts were Nov. 1st and I just saw that they are Dec. 1st, PHEW!!!!  I am still shooting for an early sendout though, since my partner is in Canada and I know how long mail can take to go across the border.  I have a list though and I'm pecking away at it, so far so good  Grin

I'm back from my brother-in-law's wedding! That poor girl is stuck with us now. Heeheehee. I didn't bring a project with me since my mother-in-law smokes and I didn't want the smoke to get onto it.

I finished the stocking last night and think it came out pretty well.  Have things laid out for the next 2-3 items I plan to make.

I found my list of ideas!!! I had completely forgotten that I had also typed it and put it on my USB drive (in case I lost it... awesome!) Good thing, too, because I had rewritten it, but left off a few things that I think PurplePaisley will really like, so luckily, they are back on the list and I will remember to do them now!

I plan on getting a lot done on Wednesday.  Sorry to hear about your move zuliblu.  My husband is working about 250 miles away right now.  We thought we weren't going to get a chance to move till next year.  However my family and his family are helping it all come together which means, I will be moving in the middle of the swap.  Acch!

Just got back from a visit to the US...I was happy to get a few little non handmade gifties for a certain stocking or two!

I had a major re-think on my stocking today and decided I liked it but wasn't so sure my partner would so after putting my hubby's drawing skills to work, figuring, cutting and sewing, I now have a totally different stocking made.

I also finished up all my crafted items today and now just have to figure out some little extras to purchase......

I have some stuffers done but I have not made my stocking yet, but I have quite a few patterns to choose from, I need to go look at the questionaire again and see what kind of colors or fabrics my partner likes...


I love personal swaps!!

Made something for inside the stocking.  My partner is going to love it!
