 Does the changing of the leaves and the smell of pumpkin spice really make you feel enchanted? Or does backing a fresh apple pie with autumns harvest just make your day? Does racking up a ton of leaves in knitted and layered clothing make you feel spectacular.... ?  Well this is the swap for you then! Either it be sewn knitted polymere'd painted whatever, just to honor or love for fall and all its glorious bounty!!!!!

Oooh! I'm hoping I get feedback from another swap and can clear space for this one. I LOVE fall- quick story- when I was a newlywed, I had a lovely collection of fall decorations. It's a special time of year for me. Well, we had a fire and though most of my seasonal decor was boxed up and able to be salvaged, the fall items were on display at the time (fire happened in fall). It's been three years, and those decorations seem to never get replaced- so many more important things that need to be bought. I'd LOVE to get a chance/reason to craft fall items (I'd prolly make doubles for me and my partner!) and get some things to regain my collection. I really hope I can join in!

I didn't realize that there were past "I Love Fall" swaps  :o  so I too have now been stalking those swaps.  I'm trying to wist things but my computer is being a pain in the arse.   :-\ I'm so excited about this swap!!  :D

Okay, I'm debating whether to take this on! I can't wait for fall. ;) Plus, on searching for the "I Love Fall" swaps, I found a bunch of previous fall themed swaps - I typed in 'fall swap' and checked the box for in the topic title.... and got the I Love Fall, Is It Fall Yet?, a few Fall Scarf swaps (I wouldn't be making a scarf, but there are lots of pretty ones - and the extras are inspiring!), a Fall Sweat Shoppe Swap (which I was actually in. lol.).... wow!

I'm kind of surprised that there hasn't been more interest in this swap already.  I mean, Fall is such a wonderful season I would have thought that it would fill up really fast.   :-\  Oh well, it doesn't close until the end of the week so maybe more people will come join us!  :D

I've been thinking about joining since this swap was posted and am quite surprised that there aren't more participants yet either.  The Eastern Religions swap has just begun and I need to figure out my projects for that before I commit to anything else.  I'm very interested though and more than likely will join if there is a spot left when I'm ready.

ACK! I SO want to sign up for this swap! Unfortunately I have 4 packages for the package for the kids due sept 30, and my 13 days of halloween swap due a couple days later. So unfortunately that means I dont think I would be able to send out on time. Oh well will have to follow along, and wish that I could have joined!

I am tempted by this swap, I am just looking at my plate to see if I am too full or not.  I will probably decide today.  Yesterday I listed off to my friend all the reasons I love fall...  Anyway, I am excited to see everything anyway.

I think it would be nice being an organizer and having a small swap, especially if it was your first time.
Yup, who cares it will be awesome anyways :)

I've been silently stalking this thread, daily promising myself I wouldn't join any more swaps for awhile.  But....
Yesterday, I woke up early, baked pumpkin spice muffins, loaded up the kids and went to the park for a cool breakfast picnic.  Followed by leaf collecting, and then turning those leaves into leaf collage art projects.  I had to admit to myself that NO, I cannot wait for fall any longer! ;)

Sending in my questionnaire now.....
(yay!)

Welcome to swapping Bobomom!  Fair warning - its insanely addictive.  I promised myself ONE swap this summer.  The huge Make-A-Friend swap...  If you look at my profile, I'm currently in 5 swaps.  So we see how well that worked out.   ::) 

Hoorah for happy breakfast picnics!  That just sounds like fun!

I'm super excited about getting partners soon!  I have some of the supplies I need for this swap (that will hopefully work) so I can get started as soon as we get partners!

I bought some of the goodies I need for this swap this weekend.  However, all of the sudden (and this happens every year) the school year snuck up on me!  Evil school year!  I've been getting my classroom put together, lesson plans written, subsititute plans finished, etc.  Hopefully this weekend and next weekend I'll be able to knock out a lot of my projects!  :D

Hello..Just wanted to check in..Working on a large project..This swap is FUELING my unhappiness with summer..If you all want to know how hot it is here and you have a weather watcher type in 86440 or 86442..Just about 12 miles separating us..lol..And also if you do that do it again at about 9pm..And see what you get..lol..I'm one of those that likes to see what the weather's like other places.. :o Hope I'm NOT ALONE in that.. :o  :D  ;)

Figured I should just check in.  I haven't started yet, but we had some lovely fall like weather yesterday, and I could feel the inspiration begin to flow.

Oh, craftymama -- that is depressing!  It's usually very hot right now here, too (TX) but we've been blessed with a "cool" front.  It's 89 (instead of 109!)  Sip some spiced (ice) tea, crank up the AC, and imagine it's fall.  Works for me. ;)

Progress -- my supplies arrived on Saturday, and I'm in the sketching phase right now.  Planning to start in a day or so!

I'm almost done with one project for this swap.  I have another project in mind but...  I don't want to start it right now.  I have approximately 24 hours in the car driving to and from Florida.  I'm going to use this time to bust out a fantastic project for my partner.  Hooray yarn!  I have another project that's not so car friendly almost done.  Just a few more               to make and glue down.  I'm excited for Labor Day weekend to get here.  Three whole days of CRAFTING!  Huzzah! 

For those of you suffering from those insane temperatures...  I'm sorry.  I'll send our high of 72 degrees today your way.  Or at least I'll send you the vibes if I can.  We've been in the 90's for the last few weeks here in NC and finally had a "cold" front come through.  All of our Visiting International Faculty (VIF) teachers are FREEZING already because most of them are from South America.

I have a few other swaps to finish up and then this one will have my full attention.  I have a loooooong car ride tomorrow and Friday so I'm taking yarn with me to work on something for this swap.  No idea what yet!  we'll see what the hook cranks out!  :D  But then the smalls should be easy to knock out when I get home next week.

So when I said it should be in the mail by friday..I think I cut myself too short  :D I finished my small item today while watching season 5 of house! An early bday present for my bf, but I really gave it to him early because I get all my crafting done while watching house! 
I've been pretty stressed (to the max to be honest) these past few days about my job and waiting to hear back about nursing school and finances to pay for it! So, I'm hoping by next week to be finished with my medium and get this puppy in the mail, and cross off another "to-do" from my long list.

fall is definatly here in Manitoba :)! Each day feels more and more autumn like. Also, it is getting darker very early, which is perhaps the only thing that I don't like about fall...dark early = dreaded winter :(!
I've spend more time outside in the past few days than many of the summer days, just lurve fall!

OK... the project involving the blender ----> scratched.
Started completely over ----> twice.
Here's hoping the third time's the charm!   ::)  I'm only about 5% along on one. 
I have all evening free to work on these projects, and I'm having a lot of fun with it!  I'll be sipping some vanilla coffee soon to really set the autumn mood. It's also much cooler and rainy here lately thanks to a recent tropical storm, and a few leaves are even changing!  That's almost unheard of before November here in our part of Texas!

I'm so excited -- I just found the perfect (I hope!) little extra for my package!  HAHAAAAAAA!  I got a little bit more done on my package, but am hoping to finish up over the weekend.  We've planning to move next month, so I have to wrap up my crafting projects and start packing! :(

My medium project is completely finished.  It didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted it to but I'm happy with it.   :D

My large project is about 2/3 done and I can work on that in the evenings when I get home from work.

Its my small projects that aren't even started!  :o  If I don't get those done this week, they'll definitely get done this weekend.  I have to go back and look at my partner's questionaire because there are some things I want to include but I have to make sure she'll like them.   :-\ :D
