Hello all. I just got word that I am in. Im really excited to get a partner in a few days. I might have to go embellished...my sewing machine and I got into a fight last night. It got pretty ugly. I keep getting the bunching stitches on the bottom...but its the top thread. Ugh.

Hey, Donniesgirl, that is terrible. Let me know if I can help out with the swap at all. Family is always first.

I need to finish off the MAQ swap and then I'll get started on this.  Not that that will stop me from brainstorming & fabric shopping online in the meantime.  Cheesy  My partner isn't into green so it probably won't be something super traditional.   Grin

It's cut, but we had an unexpected visitor last night so the sewing I expected to do didn't happen.

And the idea is still solidifying, so maybe that's good. Undecided

I think I over-estimated my apron prowess.

I made my apron...then I embellished a little. Then on the final embellishment I attached it upside down. I began detaching it and the apron LITERALLY ripped in two.

It was a shocking moment. But that was a few days ago and I have cooled down. Tomorrow morning is A Day part two. I have plenty of fabric left over...so all is well. *fingers crossed*

I hate that - I had a craft disaster on another swap this week.  I had finished the whole thing & was just putting the finishing touches on with fabric markers...and they bled all over the place & I had to rip out the fabric & redo.   Tongue 

Well at least you still have time!!

Friendly reminder that sendouts are due Thursday!

I'm getting a little nervous because my fabric hasn't arrived.   Huh  I may need to implement a backup plan & send a little late.
