Ooh it's a holiday weekend here in Britain too! I think you've got a good mix of things on your list princessblueberry so I'd be surprised if it was stalled. Now that redpopsicles has received from me I'd love to claim you for a vintage style apron but somewhat bizarrely I've never sewn pleats Shocked I will have a practice at them before undertaking anything requiring pleatedness! Cheesy

Rosali--are you claiming princessbluberry?

If not, I will claim her for the apron.  I love making aprons!  Plus, I have some other stuff to send her so I can combine it in one package! 

Let me know if I should post my list or wait.  This would be my third claim.

Oh no please go ahead alwaysinmyroom! My friend (a very good one but I'm biting my nails nonetheless!) has borrowed my sewing machine to make some curtains so I can't have a go at teaching myself pleats Undecided

OK--thanks Rosali--I pick princessbluberry for a vintage apron! 

This is my third claim.

Hey there!  My name is Linda. I live in Pennsylvania, USA.

Here are the some of the things the greedy little pig in me would love to have from one of you awesome craftsters!  I want you to make whatever is your style and your thing.  I am just giving you general ideas to inspire you to be creative:

1.   I love hats or headband or scarves of any kind.  I know it is almost summer in the USA, so maybe   a bandana style something or something with big holes would be best!  I prefer bright colors but neutrals like beige, white, etc. would be fine.  About the only color I do not like to wear is yellow.

2.   I love the fingerless gloves! Any color, any design.

3.   CuffsI am not a bracelet wearer because the jangling distracts me while I work, but cuffs would  be pretty cool. Thanks princessblueberry!!

4.   Stationery and note cards.  I am so sick of writing thank yous or simple notes on cards I get free from certain charities wanting money from meyou know the kind I want something funky, with personality, and originality to share with family and friends and to be remembered! I have tons of envelopes, so if you dont have any, dont worry!

5.   Wine glass markers.  None of my friends remember that they have the boring blue flowerbut they might remember if they had the skull or heart or sword or you get the idea

6.   Earrings.  After seeing all of the neat beading stuff here, I want more! I wear gold or silver tone and I have a job that I can wear just about anythingmy long hair would cover anything too bad if it had to, ha ha

7.   Pendant necklace. I received an awesome necklace in a swap and realized I loved them!  Anything from chokers to long dangly ones! I like the microscope slide ones but any kind would work.

8.   Paper journal or notebook of some kind.  Small enough to stick in my bag.  I am always writing on some scrap piece and losing it!

9.   Any thing I could use for making bags.  A lot of swappers want stuff that I have no idea where to findI would like stenciled fabric, interesting fabric pieces, embroidered pieces, crochet flowers, pins, handmade buttons, and appliqus, just anything that would be cool on a bag. This would be my biggest wishI want to showcase other crafters art on my bags.

10.   Needle roll for knitting needles.  I can sew but I am not fond of making such detailed things like this and I have no idea where to start (my brain is too full to concentrate on thisI am in purse mode!). Or, even a needle case for my quilting needlesthey are special!

11.   Anything from a foreign country such as fabrics, yarns, small notions, beads, etc. Things that we dont have here in the USA. Prefer crafting items or food!

12.   Felted beads to use however I want. Felting is magic to me. Maybe even a beginners felting kit so I can learn on my own!

13.   Any garden doo-dadthings to hang on my fences, trees, stick in the ground.

14.   Decorative boxes or containers to hold all sorts of crafting junk!

15.   Anything you love to do or a surprise.  I love to collect odd crafted items and I really look more for creativity than how it is done (like you dont have to be a perfect embroider, just a unique one!).

16.   Recycled craft.  I am in awe of stuff made from other stuffbottle caps, cassettes, etc. I want to do more crafts like this as wellinspire me!

About me:  I have lots of time on my hands as I am a band widowI work in the computer industry.  I have three cats and a dog. I love kickboxing and yoga. I have a large garden, mostly flowers but we also grow stuff for salsa (our favorite snack). Red is my favorite color.  My main craft is sewing anything.  I love birds but not squirrels or deer.  I recycle everything.

No no--I thought the rambling was cute--WE don't have a four day weekend--it is actually only three but I had off Friday because of the flu! So I had a four day weekend to craft!  Hope you get your sewing machine back soon--I lost my primary one to old age and have been using a vintage one from my hubby's grandma--all it does is sew straight!! ha ha

...you know you're a craftster when you view getting the flu as a GOOD thing because it means you get to stay home and craft  Cheesy

Lol so true catpants! Summer flu's the worst though; at least in winter everyone is coughing and sneezing so it seems sorta seasonally appropriate to be ill.
I'll be banging on my friend's door tomorrow at 7pm sharp, although she's dear to me she's allowed it for the bank holiday weekend and no longer; I have a special relationship with Machiney and this is the first time he's been away from home Sad
