Been working 13 hour days again!  Stopped into to see how sign up are going!  Waving at all the returning swappers (you know who you are) and saying hello to all the new swappers!

This is going to be another fun round!

I really wanted to join this swap, but now I don't think I'll have time.  :(  I am involved in two time intensive swaps right now, and I still need to complete like 20 scarves for my students for the holidays, as well as work on holiday gifts for friends, family, and co-workers.

Next round, I guess.   :'(

Hi there everyone!
I'm just getting to hyper for partners!!!

@miss Barbara
I feel for you. I'm kind of on the opposite end of the emotional school roller coaster...
My daughter starts kindergarten and my son starts his 1st yr of preschool this year. I'll totally share my box of tissues with you!
 ;)

Thank you so much.  It's worse on my end, IMHO, b/c when kids go away to college, they usually don't come back home to live afterwards.  At least, that's been my experience.  And I have two girls at home...8 & 10 yo, that are taking his leaving really hard.

And there's already no tissues left, so I'll share with you...definitely.  :'(

Miss Barbara I'm sorry to see you won't be in this round, but I totally understand how you're overwhelmed with so much going on -  I had to put swapping on the back burner for awhile until things settled down here.

Yeah for partners! I'm so excited to get stalking.  ;D

this is my first time doing this swap and I have discovered that the link on craftster 'view topics with tags' is incredibly useful for ideas for what to do with particular letters...

yes!  good point!
I like searching by tags for inspiration --
another thing I do is google "adjectives beginning with......" whatever letter,
so then I can make a Sensational _______ or a Marvelous ________ or some such....

also, meant to tell everyone that if you really get stuck on a letter, please do a shout-out
here and we can chime in with ideas for you to choose from!
that is the fun part of this swap -- making the items match up with the letters, LOL

2 1/2 items finished...
2 1/2 to go.

 ;D

The one I have 1/2 done just needs one little tweak to it.
BUT...
I have NEVER done anything like this before and it turned out GREAT!
YAY!

I can't help but giggle at the results of my latest project for stacysews... the intarsia is awesome... the size, however, leaves something to be desired!  This is the price I pay for not swatching.  Guess my 4 year old niece has a new present on the way soon!

I managed to finish my 2nd item last night.  I was using one of those glue runners and had to restring re thread re what ever and just could not do it.  Bf said here it shows you a picture on the inside how to put the new spool on.  An hour later he didn't get it either.  I had a different brand so I switched and guess I will just have to buy a new one so I can open it and see just how the darn thing needs to go!

I have two letters done, one started, and keep changing my mind on what I want to do for the other two.   :-\  Gonna have to buckle down after this weekend.  I'm helping some friends throw a big party, so am frantically crafting decor bits for that.  Over extended!  Eeek!

Anxiety sets in!!!!  Hoping your first non atc package sent your way makes you smile!

I love this swap because of the freedom to create just about anything!  Checked online to see if your package was on track but it is not showing anything.  I hope the postal drop bin didn't eat it or lose it.  Wednesday can't get here fast enough.
