 Details of swap:
 Do you love making Teesha Moore-style patches? Have you always admired them but haven't yet caught the TM bug? Well, this could be the swap for you!

In this round of the TM Patch Swap, you will be crafting for 1 or 2 partners (first time swappers will be limited to 1 partner) and from 1-3 patches (you and your partner should agree on the exact number).

Also, you will have the option of exchanging a TM Patch Supply kit with your partner (contents of kit may include: floss, fabric, embellishments {buttons, beads, ribbons, charms, etc}, poly-fil, etc.).

Let's keep this swap simple and limit it to the sending of patches and kits (if you love sending extra things, consider adding those in to a kit :) ).

There are lots of inspirational patches from previous swaps, so check out some of the galleries here:

Yay new round!! I'll be filling in my questionnaire later tonight :D

I'm really looking forward to this round! I don't have any MUST DO projects on the horizon, so I can enjoy some relaxed patch-making :)


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R4!
Post by: milkeway on January 12, 2015 07:03:26 PM
Questionnaire has been sent :D While we're waiting for partners, I'll be making a few patches for myself!

Post by: smileyyogini on January 12, 2015 11:11:28 PM
Yay!!!!

I am at 4 swaps right now but 2 are about ready to send. I am bookmarking to sign up once I ship. Too many open at once scares me. LOL


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R4!
Post by: roler on January 12, 2015 11:27:06 PM
Just signed up!  This'll fill my 5th slot, but I'm really only doing 3 active ones, since one is finished and I'm just waiting for feedback, and one is my Little Visitor which doesn't require any immediate crafting. :)  So excited for more patches!!


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R4!
Post by: craftADDchick on January 13, 2015 09:25:29 AM
Keep those questionnaires coming! :) I love that we have so many returning "veterans!" ;D

And, smileyyogini, I know what you mean! Although, the way things have been going, more than one swap for me is too much (and sometimes, it's hard with just one!).


Title: Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R4!
Post by: goatgoddess on January 14, 2015 12:45:02 PM
sending in my info now!

I'm all swapped up at the moment, but I think things will clear out in time to join this.  :)

Same here, Ludi. If not Ill beg you for a TM personal swap.

But I really feel on top of things. I expect to be able to join in time.

i Sent my questionnaire in. Can't wait to start. I received several fabrics & floss & a organizer, also 3 patches from "quaggy" for the Christmas Stocking Swap. So I'm all ready to start making some fun patches!

I think I'll go through my patches & see how many i have! I should be able to finish my bag that I started close to 4 yrs ago! So I need to see what I have & all the kits & things, I need to get them all together too!

I am interested in this one but I am going to give myself a week to work on my dotee so I don't get distracted and off track by thinking about other things to make.

Wile E Songdog, I know exactly what you mean! When I sign up for a new swap, even if I'm in the middle of another swap, my brain starts churning out ideas for the new swap and I end up losing focus on the old one :)

Tomorrow, we're expecting a snowstorm, and if I hadn't been sick with a horrible cold a week and a half ago (and its effects still linger), I would be all caught up with grading notebooks and assignments. Instead, sadly, I had to lug home almost 100 notebooks, plus a crate of assignments. And, while the storm did cause our big school fundraiser to be postponed, giving me a full day for grading, I'd rather be playing with patches! One of these days, when we have a snowstorm, I'll actually get to spend it crafting without guilt!

If I get  my butt in gear early enough tomorrow, I may have some free time on Sunday evening, and perhaps a patch would be just the thing... perhaps a 6-side crystalline snowflake would be in order?

I need to finish a dotee and and an embroidery (both in the WUP stage) before I can commit to this.  But it is great motivation as I NEED more patches!  I have two projects that I would love to collect a few more patches for-because what fun is making them all myself?  :D

Post by: craftADDchick on January 24, 2015 04:09:53 PM
I hope you can join us again!

Today, I was not nearly as productive as I hoped. But, it seems we're due to get walloped with a storm Monday through Tuesday night, so it's possible (more than it has been so far this year) that we'll have a snow day on Tuesday (and possibly Wednesday). So, I'll definitely have some pre-swap patch making time on my hands! Especially if the power goes out... I can stitch patches while bundled up in a sleeping bag :D

I sent in my sign-up! I'm just going with one partner, one patch, and no extras, for now.

MommyTheMaid! I still have patches you sent me a LONG time ago, waiting for me to gather enough additional patches for a finished item. You also sent me mug rugs, and I'm using one of them as a patch, too!

I think I am going to pass on this. I may do a craftalong instead. I am taking some time off in February partly because I have to use some vacation but also so I can get some work done around my house so I can get organized and get a workable crafting space. If I commit to this I am afraid I will goof off and play with my craft supplies instead.

And I'd also go out and buy more craft supplies that I don't have any room to store.

Sorry you won't be officially joining in, Wile E Songdog! But, if you do craft along with us, make sure to share what you've made. And, maybe you can join us for a future round!

Since school just got cancelled for another day (I love when they make the announcement early!), tomorrow my schedule will be full of A) Shoveling, B) Crocheting, C) More shoveling, D) Making a snowflake patch, E) More shoveling!

No matter how much I long for the snow, I am very thankful that I do not have to deal with it.  I admire those who do and don't go running from it.  It would be nice to get a few days off of work randomly though.

In crafty news, I cannot wait to get started.  I think I am gonna make myself a patch tomorrow, just because!

We broke a record here with the storm- 34.5" of snow... beating out the 33" from an April storm several years back. The highest snowfall was 36". In a few minutes, I'm heading out to deal with it. I think it's going to take a while and a few rounds... but, is it a  bad thing that I want to get it done because I'm expecting a package today? I need to clear the path to the door!

Yes! I'm all shoveled out, but I stupidly drove my car to the ATM to pay the guy who cleared out the car, and now I can't get my car back up the street (there is a steep section no matter how I try to go). It didn't help that there was a car stuck in one spot and I couldn't get around, or that they haven't sanded, yet. My car is currently parked in a convenience store lot down the block. I'm going to try again in a little while to see if I can get the car home so it doesn't get towed...

So, I haven't gotten any crafting done because I've been a bit distracted...

Hooray! Three more people got signed up today! Welcome to the swap or Welcome back!


And, I'm going to leave sign-ups open until late on Saturday. I'll get partners all sorted out Sunday morning (I get antsy on Super Bowl Sunday, so it'll serve as a good distraction ;) ).

So, if you're still thinking about it (smileyyogini and Ludi :) ), you still have time!

Partners are posted! There may be some of you who are swapping with people you've swapped with before, but with a small pool of swappers (most of them "veterans" of the swap), it would have been too difficult to sort that out.

I'm going to start sending partner info now!

Let me know if you A) Got the wrong partner info (the list in the first post should be correct) or B) You didn't receive any partner info.

I was multi-tasking: doing partner info while texting back in forth with my team teachers about how much snow we're getting, whether we'll have a delay or no school, and the suckiness of pipes bursting on a Sunday morning!

And, I haven't had my morning coffee yet (I'm still working on my breakfast smoothie :) ).

I'm just about to get a little kit together so I can work on this today while I go over to my friend's house to watch the Super Bowl! Or rather, not watch it- despite living in Boston for 5 years now, I can't quite make myself enjoy watching American football. I mainly go for the food  ;D

I just read your post, craftADDchick. Oh, my gosh, what a day you're having!
And it looks like both of us are getting more snow than we need tomorrow  :(

Yay thanks for sending out partners despite the day you're having! Hope everything works out alright for you!

Hi partners!! I'm excited to make some patches :D

Post by: craftADDchick on February 01, 2015 10:56:27 AM
Thanks for the sympathy, but fortunately, it wasn't my pipes that burst! I'm having a comparatively good day! One of the ladies on my team just bought a house and her husband forgot to close the garage door so a pipe in there burst. It's all sorted (she knows a good plumber!). And one of the other teachers said his daughter smoked up the house by forgetting to put water in the mac & cheese cup in the microwave. Disaster averted, but it was close!

And, meowari, where are you from originally? I love watching football from the comfort of home, but tend to only watch it if I'm at someone else's house, or it's a big game.  I won't be working on patches during the game, but I do have another project to work on. I'm staying home, so the snack consumption will be kept at a minimum (hard to eat snacks while hand sewing!).

Yeah partners! Thanks "craftADDchick" for my amazing partners!!! ;) I'm so excited!  ;D So sorry for all the problems & before you get your COFFEE.......OMG!  :o I'd go crazy if I don't get my coffee first thing in the morning!!

I have some ideas from my partners themes list,  but I'll do some more stocking & see what I can come up with! They both have some great themes! :D

I hope all of you that have snow are not having to much trouble & hope soon it will be gone! Here in the Northwest we haven't had maybe a inch or so of snow before Christmas but it doesn't last at least in the Eastern part!  ::)

And, meowari, where are you from originally?

Just South Carolina. Don't get me wrong- I love watching hockey and soccer (I'm a Tottenham fan- GO SPURS!), but I just can't like American football. I've tried, but I just don't get it. Maybe because me and my friends weren't popular with the jocks in high school and the football players were the meanest... It also doesn't help that my husband's family are New England sports fanatics. I refuse to watch the game with my husband and his siblings because they are so loud and crazy. I am going clear across town to our friend's house to watch, but I bet I'll be able to hear their shouting anyway...  ::)

I know what you mean! I prefer to watch major games away from screaming fans, as well. I was at a party, and the game was on, and some lady, as her little kid was running around, was yelling at the TV, "Kill him! Kill him!" So, quietly watching at home is my favorite. I do love going to Fenway, however!

Well, it looks like I might be working on my project today, after all! They called to see if I could come in early, so we shoveled out the driveway and I left the house... only to turn around in about a mile because the roads are so bad. I think the snow is just coming down too fast for the plows and sand trucks to keep up with. Sorry, work, but my safety isn't worth it. I'd rather stay safely at home and craft  ;D

Well, it looks like I might be working on my project today, after all! They called to see if I could come in early, so we shoveled out the driveway and I left the house... only to turn around in about a mile because the roads are so bad. I think the snow is just coming down too fast for the plows and sand trucks to keep up with. Sorry, work, but my safety isn't worth it. I'd rather stay safely at home and craft  ;D

Sounds like you made the right choice! I just saw that the Mass Pike is dotted with cars stuck in snowbanks!

I'll be interpreting my partner's themes to explore different embroidery techniques.  This will be fun!  :)

I can't wait to see what everyone makes! I'm hoping to try a couple of new techniques, as well.

I tried a new (to me) technique today and it turned out exactly as I had hoped!
 :-[ ...unfortunately, the rest of the patch was horrible, so I'm starting over. At least I know what I don't want to do on the next one!

I did watch the game & I usually don't. I don't understand it. But this game was good & My husband & I like the commercials the best! The one with the lab puppy for budweiser was so Sweet & Awesome & the best!! We didn't like the intertainment, to much over kill couldn't understand what she was singing. A few years ago John MaCartney sang & that was Awesome!

I didn't work on anything durng the game. But maybe today I'll try some to make some patches or at least get my fabrics out & sort through things. Maybe try a new technique!

I'm still pulling together ideas. I think I have them, but I'm not 100% sure about whether I can them well enough.

I'm glad we have a month until we have to send! I will probably be using patches as my vacation craft. I usually tote along something crochet-related, but patches might win this time!

Thanks to having cramps on Sunday, and zero interest in The Game, I got to stay in bed all day with the heating pad and my crafting supplies, and am ready to send! I'm kind of shocked about that.  :)

Post by: roler on February 03, 2015 10:15:21 PM
I won't be starting on my patches until I finish and send out two other swaps, but they're both due within the week so that still leaves plenty of time for patch-making. :)  However, today I DID find some perfectly-sized adorable boxes to mail the patches in once they're done, so I've got those ready at least!  Yup, definitely going about this in the right order. :)

I got one almost finished on Monday night that I am quite pleased with!  ;D ;D
I am glad we have a long crafting period, though, because I think I overloaded the brainstorming part of my brain on Monday and it hasn't quite recovered.  :P Hopefully, the gears will be re-greased by this weekend!

I have all my fabric and supplies picked out, just have to cut them out and get started!  Gonna do that tonight.

I've have all my supplies organized & now to pick out what I want & start cutting out things. I bought some new fabric so now I can use it for the patches! It's so fun to figure out what fabrics & what design your're going to make. I love all that & embellishing too!

All my "pillows" are done, one patch complete and one started!  Yay the hurdle (for me it's cutting them out-i just don't like that part) is finished.  Now onto the good stuff

For me, folding the "frame" is the hard part....especially on a round one.

I can't believe it, but I'm finished with both of my patches!

Happy to hear so much progress is being made! I'm going to work on a couple of ideas today, and it looks like I'll have all day tomorrow to stitch. Yet more snow is on the way (at least another foot!).

And, since so many folks are getting close, don't forget to send me a PM when you send and receive :)

I am working on my yarn ball swap right now so I have not even started  ;D Fear not partners it only takes me a weekend. I also ordered more fabric. I can't wait to start seeing the awesome in the gallery!

The awesome in the gallery has already begun! I put the link in the post above and on the first page.

Today, after I attempt to set up my WiFi (again... I tried it once, had it working, and then messed it up when I tried to password protect it :P ), I'm going to watch The Walking Dead and when I'm done, I'll be stitching (and probably shoveling...)!

I think I'm set on my ideas (except for one... I have a bit of "research" to do), and I'm packing them with me on vacation. I should be ready to send in about a week (if not sooner... but I doubt it, knowing how my life goes :) ).

Just checking in!  I haven't started making my patches yet because I'm trying to finish some other swaps first, but I've been stalking my partners' pinterests and coming up with ideas!  I'm excited to get started as soon as I make the time!

I still haven't sent my package out (sorry Sharalee), but a normally 5-minute walk would take 25 minutes with all of the snow still on the sidewalks!
I'm going to try to get my husband to drop it off at the post office tomorrow on the way to get his Saturday morning coffee...


Title: Re:
Post by: Sharalee on February 20, 2015 05:18:54 PM
That's fine. I wouldn't want to go out in the weather you have either,  so just mail it when you can. I'll mail yours Mon. Or Tues. I need to get it sent then because I'm having cataract surgery on Wed. So I won't be driving for a few days!  So when ever you can! Hopefully your weather will get better soon!

I am glad you guys have been busily stitching, sending, and receiving! I have had a crazy busy past 2 weeks. And, my flight home ended up getting cancelled due to weather, so I got home at 1:30 am on Tuesday (FL to Chicago, to Providence, RI...very long day!). I made it through a crazy day at work on Tuesday, went to bed early Tuesday night, worked on grades Wednesday, and was out for both Thursday and Friday evenings. Today, I had a class (9-3 but it was almost an hour away), so I am FINALLY free to A) Check out the gallery and B) Update status! Whew! It's good to be back!

Thank you Sharalee! This week is going much more smoothly. I swear, I will never again utter, "I should have plenty of time!" again!

And, I'm in the middle of a project, but an inbox with seven messages can't be ignored! You guys are the best at communicating! I'm heading over to the gallery to update status, and then it'll be to my project which, sadly, is not craft-related ;)

ok guys, life is calming down for me a little bit so I'd love to jump on into R5 pretty quickly if everyone is up for it in the next few days.  Would 2 weeks for signups be too short?  I could keep craftADDchick's schedule of around 20 days if needed, but I'm trying to get the send-out date  toward the middle of June since we will be prepping for our summer vaca soon after that, woop woop.    Ya'll ready for this? :)
