Two days with no internet! I did manage to live...but just  Grin.  My folks thought I was a bit obcom checking the hook up every 1/2 hour, but what cha gunna do?  It's not like there is an alarm that says "THE INTERNET IS BACK!"....anyway...

Thanks for the "font of knowledge" comment Grin.  I mostly think I have a knack for remembering useless stuff (like I can tell you all you might want to know about Vampire Squids, but I can't remember my phone number *sigh*), so it is nice when it turns out to be useful somewhere Grin

Since I didn't have internet, I couldn't check the pass conditions so I had to put my faith on the good old weather news, and canceled my drive home for today and will be going back to Canada tomorrow.  Car packed, dogs freeking out, and I'm ready for a looong drive....with out darling parents thinking of things for me to do every second of the day Grin

I have several ideas for gotgrey's small and 2 ideas for the doll.  I'm excited about one of the ideas for small, as I just bought the ____ that I would need to make it, and I have wanted to make one for awhile but have not had a good excuse.  I will have to do some research to get it right, but I am rather sure it will work.  The other small ideas are things that I have done before but they are super fun to make for me, so I might end up going there....just so I don't get too frustrated.  I need to do some fun stuff!

And on the self sewing dolls...the one that popped into my head had an extreme look of pain on her face, tears rolling down her cheeks and was gasping and muttering "Oweey!  Owweeeyyy! Owwwweeeyy!" with every stitch.  I think I will not make my critter work on his or her fine self.  I'll just have to do all the work alone Grin

LOL That's funny. I did some research today to try to get the 'head' like I want it. The body won't be that difficult.

Loving the creative juices here... What imaginations! I am a bit jealous, having just got off a 13 hour shift and too tired to craft. I'm off tomorrow, but that will be craft time for my swap angel commitment. And Christmas shopping. I did some stalking during my lunch break tho!

Ian was sending me picture messages of him and the arms and the face.

He asked what I was doing so I sent him a few Junker Jane pictures.

Ian has now added a mouth to my face because he believes they look scary without one.

Lol, men.

I love how active this thread is!  I love hearing how everyone is progressing.  I started working on my other swap (prayer flags) this morning, so I won't start crafting for this until those are done.

Reminder:  Communication is important!  If you haven't contacted your partner yet, please do so; and remember to post in this thread at least once a week.  Thanks!

BB91, you need to show Ian a poppet. They don't have mouths but they look cute too. As far as progress, I use my days off the craft, so Friday and Saturday. No sketches. I have pics of my inspiration. It will come together like it is intended and based on my abilities. I do feel that I can pull this off.

I so want in for round 2! Your excitement is so contagious!
And I just got back from the Dr. & my carpal tunnel isn't as bad as the doctor thought and I don't have to have surgery!!!! I have a physical therapy appt scheduled for Jan. 03, so I figure by round 2, my hands should be (fingers crossed) at least good enough to get back to smallish hand-sewn projects!
I think I'm as excited about this swap as you guys are! I can't wait for the gallery!

I just got Leslieshappyheart's message about needing to post here at least once a week - oops!  I have been in contact with my partner several times.  I have taken copious notes on what I might make make for her, both for the doll and for the extra item.  However, currently I am working on my white elephant gift for this Saturday.  What can I say, I must finish two sets of nipple pasties for the weekend, so I can see who will be shocked at the party  Shocked
