11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 25 Gallery on: September 14, 2017 02:37:40 PM
As promised, the pictures from our monday adventure:



I worked in the south central parts of Stockholm on monday. This square is called "Medborgarplatsen" or "Medis" for short. It means something like "citizens place". I snapped a photo of this fun statue but we didn't stick around. A couple of drunk old men were solving all world problems on a bench nearby...


Next stop, the Gudrun Sjden store. She creates very colorful clothes with more or less crazy patterns. Pretty much the "kulturtant" (literally culture-old lady) outfit of choice. I like some of it, and the bench outside the store is cute Smiley


Photo taken from Gtgatsbacken in between all the cyclists swooshing by on bikes. It's not the old town, but the buildings are pretty old still.


This is supposed to be the new Slussen once they're done digging and building. It's smack in the middle of Stockholm and when it's not all upside down it's a place where busses, subway and trams meet. Slussen means "the lock" (as in the kind of lock used in waterways).


Now this is the real old town. Narrow streets when used to modern standards but back then this was normal to good.


Gustav III with a seagull hat...


We found a letterbox. I had to fish it out with a magnet, and the stamp was mounted in the lid.


Other side of the road: The royal castle! Plus rows of tourist busses.


Another view of it from further away. It's not like one of those fairytale castles with towers and things, but pretty nice.


Dinner at wagamama. Japanese and asian inspired dishes that are usually super tasty.


Nom! Couldn't finish it all...

I shipped McCoy home today on my lunchbreak. I'll handle PMing and tracking numbers when I get home tonight.

It will be a bit empty not to take McCoy everywhere anymore! On monday we had our last adventure in central Stockholm and then met up with G for a "date night". Our working hours have been so weird lately, we're just taking any chance to spend time together.

Our waiter exclaimed "How cute!" when he came to take our order. I'd forgot I put McCoy on the end of the table  Grin

Pictures of the last adventure to come...
13  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Adult Merit Badge Swap (SU 8/11-8/21, SO 9/12) on: September 12, 2017 01:54:55 PM
After an extra shift at work this weekend I looked forward to having today off for finishing up crafting and sending. Only to be called in to work  Angry

I've managed to get much done tonight, but obviously mailing didn't happen. Badge #1 has one issue I'm sure I'll be able to solve with the _______. It will look good once I do that and attach the last bits. Badge #2 looks somewhat like what I imagined but is way too rough to send. Hopefully my next idea works out ok to take it closer to my vision. Never tried it before.

We need to figure out swap teleportation! Zap! And the package is there.

I packed up the scrapbook and have started to fill up the box. I have one last thing I want to do with McCoy on monday so fingers crossed I can get that done! I was worried I picked a too large box, but it's half filled already  Grin

I'm still fiddling with badge #1, trying to decide if I want to make an _____ to add to it and figuring out what to do for the back of it.

I wouldn't mind some extra time, but I suspect work will be slow tomorrow so I might be able to sneak some crafting time. (I work from home tomorrow so no coworkers or supervisors will know Tongue)

Thanks for the well wishes! Eye doctor visit went well. He wasn't sure what's up now, but we ruled out many of the Bad Things it could have been. Now I just need my other doctor to be happy with my bloodwork... I had to re-take it since some thing or other was a bit off.

In crafty news I've got the first badge started and it looks good so far. I just need to figure out if the size is ok! The yarn and supplies I bought last weekend worked really well, and I found a perfect pattern to modify in my pattern stash!

Or I'll go to the hospital instead... :grumblegrumble: (I'm ok, just happened to get an appointment for my misbehaving eye less than 2 hours from calling about it for once. So it's good, sort of.)
