We will each make/decorate a 12-16" tall stocking (cuff to heel) and fill it with goodies.  We will make/decorate and fill with our partner's tastes in mind.  Each stocking will have at least 50% crafted goodies, the remainder may be purchased supplies or items.  Everyone must post in the swap thread when they sign up as a swapper, and there will be weekly checkins every week in the thread!  It's a very long crafting period and we would hate to lose anyone along the way.  You may choose one of three sizes to do in this swap and you will be paired accordingly.  Sometimes there will be an odd number, so please note if you are willing to do (for example) Small or Medium or maybe Medium or Large or work with a 3-way swap.

                      Small - concentrate on a fab stocking and fill with at least 3 crafted and 3 purchased items
                      Medium - do a great stocking and fill with at least 7 crafted and 5 purchased items
                      Large - aka Spoiler!  A great stocking and no end of goodies!!

NOTE:  This is a holiday based swap so please do not send late - there are times when life interferes with crafting and we all understand that, however, a temporary negative will be given to anyone who sends more than two weeks past the sendout date, according to Craftster rules.  If you send late at all, it will be noted in your feedback.  Communication issues will also be noted.  We like to run a very nice, fun and timely swap.

I just sent in my questionnaire!  I love this swap and do it every year.   ;D  Thanks for organizing this year!


I'm looking at the 2015 gallery for this swap and quaggy made lindy321 a BIRTHDAY themed stocking!!!!!  I love that idea, as I really don't need another Xmas stocking. So whoever gets partnered with me, I'd LOVE a BIRTHDAY themed stocking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember - timings are a bit different to you as I'm in a very different timezone to all of you. ;)

Where did this week go ÖÖÖ my 80 year old, widowed father go remarried last weekend and while I'm happy for him, it was way more stressful than I expected and this past week I did nothing other than sleep and eat.  But, life goes on and I'm back to normal and will start stocking  :D and planning.

Went to an antique shop this week and found something super cute for my partner! I'm still deciding on the stocking and then picking up supplies on Monday. It's narrowed down to 3 that I really think she will like. :)

I am working on the stocking for my partner which came out bigger than I planned, but that's good-it will fit all the goodies I have for her!  :D  It's based off a stocking she had on her Pinterest.  I had purchased something before I knew what type of stocking she wanted, and it's going to go great as embellishment for this stocking!

DH and my kids know better than to even ask why I need to go to get more yarn...besides, the yarn store is my happy place!  Happy wife = happy life and all that, you know. ;)

Just finished up 2 swaps so this one gets moved to the front burner.  I have ideas and am now ready to start crafting.  Hoping to actually start when I get off this afternoon.  Still unsure of what I want to do for the stocking.  Creativity needs to flow!

I've gotten a few purchased items for this swap but haven't actually started crafting for it. I have everything jotted down that I'm going to make, however. Today will be for gathering supplies and I think I will be able to begin the actual stocking.

I've made good headway with this swap, with both purchased items and crafted items.  I go between personal crafts I need to make for Xmas, and this swap.  I'm having the time of my life!   ;D

I went shopping today for this swap and the _____ was on sale, which I didn't realize and was nice!  Then I looked at the clearance section and there was something there for 99 cents (!) which perfectly matched the _______ I got on sale!  Whooooo-hoooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hot dang, thatís impressive! Like Bugaboo, I too am just chugging along! I went to a craft expo this past Saturday and picked up an item for my partner. I have most of my ideas in place, I just need to finish the one Iím working on and get started on the next (though letís face it, odds are good that Iíll end up working on multiple projects all at once!).

It sounds like we're all nicely badgering away! :)

Now... for some fun:

I plan this year to start Christmas Baking in November. Stollen is better when it's done 6 weeks before Christmas apparently! And I don't want to end up with no cookies during Advent... :o  ::)

Soooo... Virtual Cookie Exchange... post your favourite cookie on here... GO!

For me it's "Vanillekipferl" (https://www.curiouscuisiniere.com/vanillekipferl-crescent-cookies/)



(I somehow don't manage to get them done as good as my Oma.. :( )

and

"Husarenkrapfen/Engelsaugen" (https://midnightcupcake.wordpress.com/2013/11/28/german-style-christmas-biscuits-engelsaugen-angel-eyes/)

Finished up an item last night.  Made sketches for my next 3 projects. And another project is laid out in the craft room ready to get started.  I am off the next 5 days so holes are to at least get these things completed and start on the stocking.

I have two piles on my kitchen table for the past three days.  One is for the Mini 12 Days of Xmas swap and one is for this swap.  I'm just having to wrap some items for the Xmas swap and finish the last big item and I'll be done.  For this swap, I have one more item I want to make and then I'm going to wrap it up and I'll be done for this swap as well.

Then I can move everything off the table and no one will be complaining about it to me anymore.   ;D

Ugh havenít found THE material for a stocking. Donít you hate when you have a vision in your head but you just canít locate the supplies to make it happen! It WILL happen I just have to go on the hunt some more

Super cold in upstate NY as well. My twins bday party was yesterday with 39 kids, I think kids just kept showing up! RSVP list was 19 we ended up with 39 + he parents it was a zoo! Their actual bday is tomorrow. SOs bday is the 20th but heís not a birthday person so hopefully the bulk of planning and doing outside work is complete and I can focus!

 So I got home from the Houston Quilt show  and I had a blast spent way more than I should have but did manage to pick up something to make for my partner.  I also sat at the kitchen table long enough to finish up an item I had started yesterday.  I have another partially completed in the craft room and a finished piece on the kitchen counter.  Oh and another finished item in the spare bedroom.  So plans are to work on the item I picked up and finish up some ornaments I am making for my mom during this week then while I am on  9 days Thanksgiving break I can get the craft room item done and the stocking!  Feeling pretty inspired right now!

Stocking bought and onto decorating. Got some shop bought stuff and will work on handmade stuff soon.

I *think* I'm on track ok for SO. ;)

RL kicking me a bit...we get a boiler replacement on the 19th and we needed to give access to all radiators ... so that was me clearing space in one box room last weekend, and the coming weekend it's another space in a room where we don't use the radiator much and therefore never needed access to it.

That kinda takes priority over crafting unfortunately...  ::) :-\

You all making feel like i am WAYYYYY behind.....

waiting on an order to come in....WAITING is the worst!!!!! Hoped to get the stocking done..that didnt happen...kiddo come down over the weekend so that changed my plans. as soon as the order gets here will have another item knocked out and learn a new craft as well LOL.

Once I get the stocking done i will have a better idea of how many more items i want to make. Then a trip to the store for the store goodies and i shall be done WOOHOO I think... I always have a list a mile long and then have to weed it down, but then that leads to the problem of me adding to it

am the worst at trying to keep things simple...

I feel like Iíve gotten a lot more done than I actually have. I think itís because Iíve done the prep work for a few projects, but I still need to complete them. I think Iíll wrap all my crafted items and leave the purchased unwrapped...thatís still a ways off though, so for now Iím focusing on crafting those objects to be wrapped ;).
Stocking-wise, Iím still unsure on what direction Iíll go.

My stocking is done. Iím going to try to make a few more stuffers but my life is going to be crazy from now until send outs. My weekend is packed, next week is Thanksgiving which may allow some crafting time for me since itís a short week but then Iím going to Disneyland for a week! I am confident with what Iíve made so far but always like to spoil ;)

I won't be able to craft till Monday now. It's my kiddos birthday tomorrow and her party Saturday, family Sunday. From now till then it's prep and cleaning for that! I'm still confident with my progress and plan to make more headway next week.

Well it was fine in upstate NY until 4 pm, then the snow started. I was suppose to be on PTO yesterday and ended up at work all day! My plan was Wednesday night to finish a report at home be off Thursday and Friday when suddenly I couldn't open files or remote in. Fine ran in Thursday am to get computer sorted and finish report to be off the balance of the day. NO after 4 hrs they still hadn't fixed the issue so I ended up at work all day.Got out at 4:30 to start the drive home OMG! So my kids are bussed from school to a center for after school, their bus got stuck off the road and instead of arriving to the center at 3:45 they arrived at 5:45. Thats ok because their father, who was getting them it took until 6:15 to get there. My normal 10 min drive was an hour and a half. He was able to get the kids but the normal 10 min from their center ended up in almost 2 hrs to get home and they all made it safe and sound at 8pm!!! We went from not a drop to 10 in in a few hours!!!
So everything is closed today and I am really on PTO but the kids are also off from school which will limit my productivity!!! They refer to the studio as the art room and will probably be with me in there all day coloring and painting faux stained glass pieces while I attempt to get some craftiness on.
Stay safe and warn all!

So I have started my 9 day Thanksgiving break and was back in my craft room last night to work on a started project. Hope to finish it today.  I got my big swap out the door and mailed yesterday and have 2 different ideas for the stocking.  We shall see which one ends up winning.  Fixing to take my mom who is 90 to the grocery store, a few other errands and then back to my craft room.

The stomach bug hit the house!! Iím still a hunting  widow so alone this weekend when my son started throwing up all night. Joy NOT then for a brief moment between him getting better house scrubbed from top to bottom I thought maybe I can sew something. WRONG! Now my iron is shattered which greatly impedes sewing and then the next twin started throwing up. Iím looking forward to a nice quiet thanksgiving maybe I can do more then....now that someoneís home Iím off to see if I can find an iron I like ugh

Yikes, Bugaboo!! Hope you're not catching the sickness bug yourself!!

I've finished another swap on a different website so now will concentrate on crafting for this one. There's a reason why I now tend to sign up for small item swaps or swaps with a "small" option before Christmas... ;)

Hope you're all doing ok!!

So I have most of the stocking done but did not have a fabric that went well for the top or lining so what did I do?  Ran to Joannís which is 45 minutes away came out with way than I needed but hey I guess that is what sales are for right? Hoping to finish the stocking tonight.

LMAO.  I left with 4 end of the bolts of fabric. 2 end of the bolts of fusible web, 1 remnant,4 1/2yards of fleece that I had ordered online and they sent 1 pattern  of the 2 ordered and said they were sold out of this pattern. So yay my sonís Christmas blanket will get made plus various other cotton prints and of course some of the 70% off Christmas fabric!   Add in 2 magazines , 1 book and  all the packages of white buttons they had. Yep only needed the stocking fabric! 

 I just finished the hand work for the stocking and am gonna cut and start sewing it!  Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

But if you go on Friday, you might be able to get your item for something like 60% off...or get 5 of your items for the price of 1!!! That is - if you can get through the masses of people to get to your item ;).
Lol, seriously though, it is hard when you need to get something from the store, only to realize that itís Black Friday and that need is going to have to wait! A couple of years ago, my son ended up in the hospital on Thanksgiving. The hospital didnít carry my sonís formula, so my dad went to the store to get it. We had forgotten that it was Thanksgiving until he discovered that most of the stores were closed and Target had a line wrapped around the entire store. I now have extra formula in my car at all times!

We are hosting Thanksgiving this year and I've been prepping for the last 2 days. I totally expected to be able to craft yesterday but that did not happen. I'm really hoping for a break some time today after the turkey comes out and while the casseroles are in the oven.... We will see!

I am done except the stocking which was rude so is in time out!

I hit Joannís all weekend for supplies for drapes and shades I need to get done. I have a MCM house so either walls of windows or small ceiling high windows so the shades has been on the back burner as no one can see in them anyways!! So you know a few hundred at Joannís going what did I buy???? Lol

Iím still in the process of closing on a house as well so had to go there and thankfully I did the furnace wasnít running at itís been single digits here! So we had to spend a lot of time investigating and fixing that UGH!! Nasty grams have been penned to the lawyers on both sides who seem to be doing nothing to close the deal!!

Then my favorite local winery was having a sale yesterday haha so me and some friends just had to go and support a local business!! Yeah so today I am home, have a sofa being picked up from my garage and need to clean that space so I can hopefully get an actual car in the 2.5 car garage!!!!

Then hopefully the stocking has a better attitude and can be worked on

Take your time.   I have been in your shoes working all those hours and it is never fun!  Sad part for me was all I was really wanting to do was work on my crafts but never any time to do so.

Looks back at the send date...ÖÖ.bangs head into wall....I had it down in calendar the send out date as December 1...ÖÖ. I had another week to finish..ÖÖ. I have been making myself nuts thinking it was the first...Ö *continues to bang head into wall.*****

well at any rate my partner will get two packages because I thought I would be late so I sent today and planned to send again Monday or Tuesday as I finished up the last two items.... and to load in more goodies for being late...Ö.

Yes all the work hours have me crazy as a bell tower bat...

Checking how everyone is doing with their stockings etc? I'm a bit behind, have been off work with a nasty ear infection, and the pain really didn't help with crafting (i.e. I didn't do any). So I think I may have to send late,  either Saturday or Monday. Still save for arrival before Christmas (last recommended posting date for US is the 14th with Royal Mail).

Life or I should say work has bitten me big time. The last items I was hoping to finish up and send in a second package are still waiting to be finished. I will be sending them late I am sooooo very sorry for this. Is another reason I made the choice to send what I had done early so it would be on time.
I am off this weekend and did not take on any extra shift. Will bust my backside and with any luck be done Friday and ship at the lastest Monday.

Should arrive Monday and I hope smileyyogini enjoys the goodies!!! The box was packed and my post office are sticklers for the boxes not being misshapen from ver packing but I did get a "My you really seemed to load this package up, not a speck of space in there for anything else to fit huh?" Uhhh nope!! Can't send a box with room to spare gaaahhh

So glad you're all on track. I will send a bit late (no later than Wednesday) because I had a run-in with my kitchen mandolin.... :o

Fingers still there, but skin a bit off on middle finger and it's bleeding like no tomorrow. 2nd plaster already bleeding through. And fleshy area on thumb has scratches from the julienne cutter (hubby said I'm looking like Wolverine attacked my hand).

OUCH!!!! Mandolins are evil they pretend they want to make life easy and slice for us, in reality they are like cats waiting to attack when you least expect it!

I will update the list on the gallery tomorrow at work.

My hand is still quite sore from the mandolin incident, so have still a bit more to finish off... :-( I'm really sorry... :'(
But will definitely  send on Thursday from  work.

Starting to feel frustrated with Canada Post. Every day when I check the tracking the estimated delivery date gets farther and farther away. It now says after Christmas :( So sad when I mailed on time.
