I am about 90% done with my larger item, but my sewing machine and I got into an altercation.  Angry  The item is fine, but the sewing machine is well... I just had to walk away from it.  I have done this before, just need to locate my manual, cry  Cry, and then get it back together.  Until then I will finish my smaller item and then decide on extras.  My tiniest girlie hasn't been feeling well the last couple of days and has been requiring more snuggles.  I think she is getting more teeth in, for some reason my babies always have a rough time with the teeth Sad  I should still be sending on time, even if I have to hand sew the last 10%.

Oh no!  I hate it when the machines act up like that right at the end of a project.  Sometimes everything happens all at once.   Aww, I hope your little one isn't in too much pain.  Sad 

I just finished fighting with the last big crafting part!  I thought I would never finish one item.  Nothing wanted to go together as it was supposed to, and I had to change things up so many times I lost count.  Everything looks pretty darn cool in spite of doing it all in a rush.  Next swap, I just can't get sick!  Or realize no matter what, I can NOT design stuff if I have a cold.  I spent more time messing with patterns than actually putting stuff together. 

I'm so excited about send outs!  I can't wait to see how my partner likes everything.

I didn't have a cold when I designed this, but man did it give me fits!  *Note to self* Fewer pieces next time

I will be sending via airmail on Monday morning. Having said I would be early, I've just had one family crisis after another !!!
Anyhow, fingers crossed it will be a quick jetting !

Ughhh! I don't know if I'm going to get into the mail by tonight - I'm another one trying to craft through a bad cold, and haven't been winning.  Tongue

No worries P_E_S_T I am in the same boat, and my options were to rush to finish at the last minute, or to delay sending until Monday and get ti done well, I'm choosing the latter. So I will also be sending by airmail on Monday and hoping it is not too late.

Well after busting butt to finish my large item, i waited until the last minute to clear coat my smaller item and its still tacky  Undecided  

My lil one's fever finally broke today and she seems to be back to her normal self which has me soooo relieved!  My MIL said that if it wasn't teething then it was just a virus that had been going around and not to worry.  OF COURSE i am going to worry lol

I managed to get everything wrapped up, packed up, and sent out today by the skin of my teeth. 
It was a pretty late night for me last night, but I got tied up earlier in the evening getting birthday stuff ready for my boyfriend.  So I blame him for making me stay up so late.  Wink 

How crazy about all of us having odd stuff come up like that!  It's just that time of year.  And on that note, it started freekin' snowing again as I left work and went to the Post Office.  Urgh... 

I can't wait to see what everyone made.  It's so neat to see what everyone thought of. 

I hope everyone feels better and has things settle down soon too!
