Yay partner! We are quite a match, I'm trying to decide if what I have right now is a bit of flu (my 6yo just got through with it and after an hour at work hubby came home today for the rest of the week) or just something... Get better soon!

Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on February 19, 2018 04:33:02 PM
Feel better soon, to all of you that are sick!  I had the flu over the New Year, so I can commiserate. 

I have so many ideas going on in my head!  I love this part of swapping!  (Hell, there isn't ANY part of swapping that I don't like, let's be honest. ;D)

UGH you too! Mine is just a bad cold no chills or fever but I now own half a Kleenex factory somewhere!

Its fn stalking though and I have tons of ideas, now the energy to go gather supplies is needed!

Feel better soon and hope th husband does as well. When mine is sick the world ends!

Got one project done and an idea but need to see if I can find the supplies I need.


Title: Re: Rainbow Swap SU: Feb 10-17, SO: March 16
Post by: Bugaboo1 on February 24, 2018 11:01:53 AM
UGH I am STILL sick! It was a head cold that finally progressed into a sinus infection so finally something can be done about it. I started antibiotics yesterday and actually already feel so much better even though I do a simple chore and need a nap!

So perfect conditions to hang out, catch up on some shows and craft away! I think what I am working on is coming out wonderfully and I am so excited to see the end result! I hope my partner loves it as much as I have loved making this!


Title: Re: Rainbow Swap SU: Feb 10-17, SO: March 16
Post by: curiousfae on February 24, 2018 03:28:38 PM
I just got the perfect thing to make my partners thing! How's that for being vague?!


Title: Re: Rainbow Swap SU: Feb 10-17, SO: March 16
Post by: mandykaye on February 24, 2018 05:16:56 PM
I'm nearly half-way done!! I was able to get what I needed and have had a lot of good inspiration!!


Title: Re: Rainbow Swap SU: Feb 10-17, SO: March 16
Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on February 24, 2018 06:31:39 PM
I have a lot done too, but I want to make more. What Iím currently working on is an item that Iíve frogged about three times but finally got a running start on it tonight . My yarn is not changing colors as quickly as I would like though. I hope this item comes out rainbow and not just two colors.  :P

Still planning and gathering supplies here, but I have a very idea plan of I want to make. Just have to get one other project finished and shipped tomorrow. Bugaboo1, all the best, enjoy your rest & crafting time! I'll get some of that next week to, hopefully my cough will get better as well...

Post by: monkey_girl on February 25, 2018 10:41:13 PM
I've been sorting through my stash and found some fabric that's just perfect for one of the things I want to make!


Title: Re: Rainbow Swap SU: Feb 10-17, SO: March 16
Post by: mandykaye on February 26, 2018 10:43:22 AM
I have to modify one of the projects I had finished. I knew that I might, so that is why I did that project first so I had plenty of time to change it if needed. It only needs a minor adjustment though thankfully! I only need to do one more project! I've been on a crafty roll for this swap!

 ;D Getting better, I'm the last one. But now I've seen your new pins I'm kind of wavering on my main project...

Picked up some supplies this weekend. I'll be working on the first design this week.

Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on February 28, 2018 05:15:48 PM
I have been moving right along with this swap and could probably send now, but I want to continue crafting!  I already have the next item planned!


Title: Re: Rainbow Swap SU: Feb 10-17, SO: March 16
Post by: Bugaboo1 on March 02, 2018 03:34:45 AM
Moving right along here as well. I am at that point of I like it but OMG will my partner? is this the right direction?

Noreastern hitting us right now but my work never closes (health care you don't want the hospital shutting down) so I do have some work to do today but mostly going to be remote from home SO there is the potential of crafty breaks!

Post by: monkey_girl on March 02, 2018 10:48:10 PM
I've finished up one small - still a long way to go, but happy I've made progress :)

Post by: LadybugsAndBumblebees on March 05, 2018 04:58:16 AM
I have a set of items I want to add and then I'm done.  I need to decide if I want to _________ them or not before I send them.  (BTW, I am the queen of the mad lib type of post.   ;))

Now that I've stopped coughing half of the time (and falling fast asleep the other half) I actually had some free time today and am happy to report that things are progressing nicely! (I do miss those naps though, kind of...)
