31  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: (Old Fashioned) Random Swap 2009 (Closed) Send out 2/11/09 on: December 07, 2008 07:03:12 PM
I've done a bunch of swaps off craftster. I never had a problem with any partner swap I did. But I just did two round robin-type swaps last month and in both the person who was supposed to send to me flaked!  So I guess just hearing round robin right now makes me all nervous... LOL Obviously it could have happened no matter what the set up was though...

Hi everyone! Sent in my info last night too! I'm really excited about this swap. I haven't done one on craftster before because everytime i have checked open ones they are those numbered?(is that what they are called?) swaps.... I love a good old fashioned swap!!!!
35  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Neighbor, this crap's for you! (2nd x-stitch) on: December 04, 2008 08:31:02 PM
Okay so I guess this x-stitch is kinda addictive... Now I'm going to have to go out and buy some real floss....

I made this one for my neighbor, who has shown me that the word "seriously" can be used as a noun, pronoun, adjective, adverb, verb, etc etc etc..... I have seriously never heard anyone use the word as much as her. Smiley

Once again I did not use floss- it's crochet thread. And I wanted it to be glittery... so I rummaged through the glazes I use on my polymer clay and voila! Sparkle Glaze! I think it will also help it lay better in the frame because as it dries its stiffens the fabric...

and now I will stop talking your head off!!!

**DISCLAIMER -- I don't do needlework. I don't like needles and needles don't like me. I prefer hooks and yarn, or polymer clay and my hands. So what you are about to see is not pretty.  Wink **

When you have children, you will notice that some things about you change. For instance, you can no have the potty mouth of a truck driver. I have 2 small children and recently my mom pointed out to me that I say "Holy crap" an awful lot. This is because I am refraining from saying the phrase I am actually thinking.

So with this thought in mind; when I found a blank piece of cross stitch material, I decided to give it a try. I didn't read any instructions anywhere and I didn't even use thread or floss or whatever it is you are supposed to use. (It's crochet thread, in case you were wondering)

So, Mom, this crap's for you!



and I did discover one thing while working on this project.....
needles and thread aren't all that bad... maybe there will be a reconciliation in the future  Grin
