So i feel my progress is going pretty well. I became over confident and decided to draft a bag pattern because there was a style i was attempting. Well, after wasting a yard of fabric (too cocky to use muslin or scraps)  i feel i finally got it to my liking! Smiley im not finished yet, but tomorrow it will be done for sure! Smiley yay!

The pinterest surprise for A2K went amazingly fast the first day i worked on it and it has now slowed down to a crawl but I am very pleased with how it is turning out. I have packed my project bag with Babalina's supplies but have yet to apply needle to fabric. I was so sure the surprise for A2K would only take a few hours - ha! Cheesy

Isn't that always how it goes?  I often underestimate how long things will take!  I think the reason is that once I'm in the crafting zone, I have no concept of time so that 4 hours seems like one!  Cheesy

It sounds like he could figure out a way to escape a straight jacket.  Hopefully one day soon all that snow will melt and you can kick him outside.  How long is with you for?

On I have a couple of 8 years olds that act like that some days! That's when I lock myself in the craft room and let hubby deal with them - LOL!

My set screw came in today so I am adding snaps to Lo's towels and sending tomorrow!

Oh Monica, you poor thing.  All I can think of is to buy a good sturdy lasso and talk him into playing cattle drive with you (him being the straying cow that needs to be tied up tightly for his own good of course).  If you leave the room while he's trussed on the floor helpless and "forget" to go back for a while, who in the world could blame you? Roll Eyes

 On a crafty note, I finally have started cleaning out my new craft room!  My daughter moved out of our basement apartment and I've decided that I'm turning her kitchen/dining area into a super duper wonderful craft room!  I'm doing for two reasons.  1) Who doesn't want a super duper wonderful craft room?  and 2) I am determined to use all of that space so that no one can get the bright idea to move in down there.  It's going to take ages to finish because dear sweet daughter left a whole heap of crap here but I'm slowly chipping away.  I can just envision myself making claim after claim and completeing them all in my spiffy craft space.

Hehe............I remember those days!  I worked for Health and Welfare and my co-workers used to joke that we needed to lock him in a rubber-padded room before I wound up committed to one.  Lucky for me - they both grew up quite nicely, though I have a lot of grey hairs to show for it!  I wish you peace and relaxation, Babalina58!

I've finally finished Lo{ve}'s forks!  Woohoo!  There are about two dozen in the scrap heap and my son has decided I'm a bit looney over the whole thing!   Grin  I promise - I washed ALL the blood off of them!  If anyone else decides to give these a go - don't use a propane/map gas torch - it'll totally discolor and destroy the stainless.  A heat gun works fairly well to get a little malleability, but be warned - you can catch your hair in the back end of a heat gun just like you can a hair dryer!  It's been an adventure - but it's been fun.  They are not perfect works of art - I'd say eclectically rustic - I hope they work for you, Lo{ve}!

Ack!  I just read the part about the blood to my husband and he said that you're the kind of Craftster that puts a little of herself in every project!   Grin
I'm sure it will be loved!

Well-now that your a pro  I think if I want to craft forks  I will put on the OWS list instead.  Grin  That sounds like a beastly job.
