I tried to send this as a PM to everyone, but my internet's being really funky right now, so:

First of all.... I am leaving on a great papermaking adventure to Salt Lake City tomorrow morning.  I had fully intended upon making a pattern before then.. but you know how it goes.  Feel free to craft from alternate patterns or alter storebought undies for me.

Second.. No worries though!  I am only gone for a few days, then I will be back and creating/embellishing undies for each of you well before the deadline.  Just wanted to check in, so you don't think I'm ignoring you.

Third... there is no sizing info I could find for Redpopsicles on that nice html page you set up for us, Rache (thanks, that's a good idea)l. 

I will have some internet access while I'm gone, but I won't really be joining the craft-a-long part of the discussion until I'm back (next Monday). 

I see that we all have similar preferences.   Long live boyshorts and hipsters.. hehe.  Have fun.. can't wait to get started when I'm home again.

lol, I have been trying to catch up on other things, kind of forgot about this swap (whoopsie!) and then I remembered it this weekend... but for some reason I thought we were sending out by tomorrow.  thank goodness we're not, haha!  I would have been done, but I have been brainstorming all these awesome ideas that I should actually have time to implement now... yay!   Cheesy

how's everyone else doing?

I was thinking of doing half and half too, ppcakes... but I spent a long time making a pattern from a favorite pair today, and just finished sewing it, and I really like it!  It's definitely not perfect, and definitely not "store-bought" quality, but it has a lot more character... so I might make all 6 pairs.  We'll see.  Good luck sewing though... it is frustrating, but practice is helping me a lot.  Practice and pins.  Haha.  Smiley

Well, this swap has been kind of a disappointment.  Ppcakes was my hero, coming through with knickers where nobody else did.  Well, I did, but i didn't mail 'em to myself, you know?  I can't help but blame myself a little - i could have done this or that differently as an organizer.  Ah, well.  I caught myself before sending out Amyshrugged's unders, and we're practically the same size, so i'll keep 'em for myself.

I"m still here!  I am moving to Texas on Jan 01, so I have been out of town trying to find someplace to live, all without internet access to let you know my progress.  I am still working on things, but I am definitely sending to you two!

Thanks to the Automated Postal Center at my local post office, I was able to send out todaay (Sunday).  I am sending delivery confirmations now.  Sorry for my tardiness.
