Color: White - hmm not sure about this one yet......except i want to make myself a collection of handmade Baker's twine so will use white cotton for that........

Pattern: Stripes - the twine will be striped so that covers this......
For: After all the holiday mayhem, you deserve something for yourself. - i want the twine for my scrapbook pages - desperately!!!

Challenge: It's time to take stock of your stash. Spend some time looking at what you have, and maybe make some goals for the coming year - This one is SOOOoooooooo easy. I'm rearranging my overstuffed craftroom to bring forward the items that get forgotten right on to or in front of my work desk so that it gets used! It's awesome as i feel as if i've had a massive shopping spree.  Embarrassed EmbarrassedI must admit that i feel a little ashamed at how much i've got..........& i forgot about it Embarrassed Embarrassed

I know that this seems all a little simple but at least i'm going to be able to succeed in something in the first month Cheesy

Everything unwrapped............

Some of the individual super cute items.....................

Fimo magnets

Bride Sheep

Sheepy in a snowstorm......... Grin

Little sheepy cup........soooo sweet!

I so envy sarantha for her knitting skills for this bag Wink

There was also a little wind-up chicken, a frog plant marker, a pencil topped with a sheep, stickers with sheep, some pretty handyed roving, a totebag with sheep on it & a little stuffed sheep. Ooh, and some pretty wooden buttons Grin

Sarantha's daughter made me a pretty bookmark with fimo beads on it............. Grin Thankyou Jljiana Kiss
Sarantha was worried that it would be too much sheepy.............but it wasn't! Cheesy I love them  Grin Grin Grin

The yarn is so soft & is for either a crochet shawl or a pair of crochet socks. I'm still deciding.............. Undecided

 Kiss KissThankyou sarantha for a fab swap!!! Kiss Kiss

We have a sender!  The gallery may be found here (though at the moment, it's pretty empty):  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344101 

Since I like to be able to move between threads, there's a link in the first post of both threads to each other.  Keeps it easy to find.  Smiley

Also, I didn't realize it yesterday, but it was exactly 3 weeks until send out yesterday (so 2 weeks 6 days till send outs today).  In case anyone's interested.  Grin

Okay! I'm getting nervous now..................... Cheesy

Just checking in *waves hello* .. I'm not yet done crafting everything for the ball, but I should be done in a week or so.. baa-me-chick unwittingly got me all addicted to learning how to spin, so that's taking some of my focus away.. I've run out of wool to spin, though, so I'll get the crafting done these days  Grin

Haha! Sooooo much fun isn't it Cheesy

All these EARLY senders!! Shocked Swap anxiety has kicked in now BIG time Tongue
My difficulty is making decisions..............i mean REeeaally! It actually triggers some of my bipolar symptoms Roll Eyes Then add swap anxiety on to that & i've got panic!!!! I can't sleep, can't eat..........................and i do this for fun Huh Cheesy Cheesy
