Oh! That looks so cool!!! I just looked at the gallery, though, and I'm massively intimidated. I cannot believe such goodies were made in a weekend! (That could be because my evil monkeys like to sit on my lap while I sew...)

It's certainly appealing, the idea of all that rush-rush crafting.  It's sort of like a swap of instant gratification.  <3  I miiiiiiiight just sign up.  We'll see.  ^^

I am *so* ridiculously tempted to sign up, but I was really hoping to sew something, and my machine is on the fritz....  :'( sigh... maybe next year, if I don't fix it within the next few hours!

I'm torn between a horizontal and a vertical...  Of course I won't say what on, but it's a tough decision!  o.o;  Onc I make up my mind, however, I should be about 70% done.  ^_^

I had so much fun doing this swap!!

Halloween is a huge hit in our house, it's funny, I don't usually od the dress up thing... but I decorate the house, the car...I'd decorate the cats, but they have claws and know how to use them!!!

I hope Wildfyre likes what I crafted, I just couldn't stop myself, I kept trying to add more and more to the box!
