I have the pattern but I am putting off buying yarn until Friday if at all possible because one of my local yarn shops is having a sale next Friday-Sunday and I'm hoping a can get a little bit of a nicer yarn that will still fit in my budget since I need several skeins.  I have all of the bought items and I have two items crafted.  If all goes as planed I should be done by Monday or before.

I printed patterns yesterday and have bought my yarn. I'm still working on a few different items, but hopefully I'll have everything done by the end of the week!!

Tried a new craft, and it worked, so I made six.  Tried an old craft in a new way, also worked out well.  Have dozens of smalls done.  Have my yarn.  I'm probably going to start wrapping the ball up tonight, but I have a few crafts I'm set on making before I decide I'm finished.

I do have way more crafted items than bought items, though.  I know there's only a 4 minimum out of 15ish items, but what sort of ratio of bought to crafted do you guys aim for?

I finally found all the yarn I need.  I had to do a lot of searching!  But it was well worth it beause its PRETTY!!  My partner is claiming she'll be done by Monday...  I won't be!  I know - I've been on Spring Break for the last week and I'm still not done.  ACK!  But I tend to work right up to the send out date.  So no big surprise there.  I have all my ideas (I think), just need to get everything done.  Smiley

I found a few more things (store bought) to put in my ball and I was able to make another something over the weekend.
