Yay, got some stuff done:
  • Get the Tarot ATC Swap R1 wrapped up
  • Make a holiday ATC for alteredmommy (1 card)
  • Get cards in order for the Tarot ATC Swap R2 (3 ATCs by Dec20)
  • Set up Pirate ATC Swap (3 cards)
  • Get the Ongoing ATC Swap R3 set up (no more than 15 ATCs by ?)

Now I've got to get all my info ready for the Ongoing ATC Swap (which starts on Wednesday) and get my Tarot ATCs done for Round 2...I should (kinda have to) get those done in the next couple days.  (post #1000 for me, woo!)

If you need to find one of your posts pretty easily, go to your profile and click where it says "Show the last posts of this person." That will show you all your posts and you can go right to where your replies are in the discussions. Very handy!

So.... I guess I'll join, since I am (like everyone  Tongue) an amazing procrastinator.

My List:
~Fetching for Mom b-day (was the 19, but hasn't opened all of her presents yet, so it's all right.)
~Monkey for baby cousin (X-MAS!)
~Line Fat-Bottom bag (for me)
~Make Washcloth(Mom)
~Find yarn for flip-top-fingerless-gloves things (X-mas for a friend)
~Make pj pants
~Finish fairy-ish skirt
~And many more, updates coming :-D

And I'm wasting my time making this list instead of crafting....haha

Yay! Second batch of stuff done! (and a few things that I found alternative gift ideas for, and new stuff added)

To finish by Christmas:
  • Two pairs of socks
  • Schadenfreude cross-stitch
  • Cabled sweater vest <- new addition
  • Wiimote cozy/holster <- new addition
  • Button-front sweater vest
  • Shawl/wrap that I haven't even decided on a pattern for yet
  • 8-Bit Theater dice pouches for friends

To finish by New Year's:
  • Square pillow that I've now officially been working on for a year and a half (I find the pattern, can't find the needles; find the needles, can't find the pattern; find both, run out of yarn and have no money to buy more just yet...)
