1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Back to Hogwarts Round 7 (Signups CLOSED - Sendouts Sept 18th) on: August 21, 2017 02:53:24 PM
Ok, partners are posted on the first page, and questionnaires have been sent!  Please let me know if you are missing your partner's questionnaire. 


Thank you ladies for being so forgiving about the delay in posting partners.  Here'd the backstory on what happened....

So yesterday I kept the signups open all day, because we had an odd number of participants, and I wanted to give it as long as possible to become an even number.  (Even though the AWESOME edelC offered to take 2 partners if needed!  Kiss)  I actually kept them open until bedtime, but no takers.  By that time, I was sleepy, and didn't want to make a mistake in pairing, so I put it off till this morning.  This morning, after doing all my morning chores, I was trying to do the partnering and send the questionnaires before heading to an Eclipse Party, that one of my husband's co-workers was throwing in Nashville.  (We're about 20 mins south, in Franklin, where we wouldn't get full totality, but they would just a few minutes north.)  I got through matching folks up pretty easily and was very proud of myself.  So I posted them on the front page, and started quoting questionnaires to send to partners.  In doing so, I bumped into sweet Ruby Copperhead's questionnaire, and stopped short.  I had somehow missed it coming in, so she had never been added to the swap!  So after adding her in, we DID in fact have an even number, which means I could have closed signups yesterday morning!  But in adding Ruby in late, my partnering needed to be changed to account for an extra international swapper.  That was with 1 minute left before Jim & I were due to leave for Nashville, and since the news has spent DAYS telling me how bad traffic would be, we didn't want to leave late and I gave up getting it done before I had to leave. 

Of course there was NO traffic heading there, and we arrived 15 minutes early.   Roll Eyes 

Oh well.  It was a lovely party, with some fantastic brisket smoked by the host, and the rest of the food & goodies provided by Jim's company.  They even bought eclipse glasses for everyone, including spouses and kids!  When one of the employees who is an accountant joked that she wondered how much the loss in productivity would cost the company, the owner just laughed and said, "You know, I really don't care!  Life's too short to care about that!"  Then he wandered away to play corn hole with his programmers.

My favorite go-to costume as a kid was a gypsy. (Admittedly not PC, and yes, I know the people are Romany.) Forgive me, it was the 80's.

Partners listed on the first page...  Attempting to send Questionnaires now, before leaving for an Eclipse Party in 11 mins.  If you don't get a questionnaire soon, I'll be sending it when I get back in a few hours!!!

I made a mistake while partnering, and need to untangle the mess before re-announcing partners.  You're all going to have to wait a few more hours.  I'm sooooo sorry!

Signups are CLOSED!  I will announce partners and send out questionnaires in the morning.  Please forgive my delay, I left them open longer today than I had anticipated, in case we had any last minute folks signup.  But now it is bedtime, so you'll all have to wait until morning.  Smiley

I was all set to start on my somewhat messy main project this weekend, up in my craft room.  Supplies acquired, tools pulled out, everything ready to go.  But meanwhile I've been missing my husband who has been working a lot lately, so we ended up staying in the living room watching movies together all afternoon.  Since I can't just sit without having something for my hands to do though, I decided to dig through my stash and see what kind of non-messy item I could make in the living room.  Ended up randomly bumping into a pattern for a _____ _____ _____, and had a whole _____ of _____ _____ sitting in my stash, so I started _____ it  It is coming together well, but it must be the strangest thing I've ever ______ !  Hopefully FiberAlchemist will love it.  Cheesy

Lovely design and wonderful colour combo, I particularly like the silvery gray stripe.

Thanks CLM!  It's a bit hard to see in the photos, but the grey actually sparkles.  Cheesy

Love the hoop and the tie dye Abbee!

EdelC, glad to have you back with us!  I want to try the tea brack.  I'm thinking of using some dried apples and cranberries in place of the 'Shamrock Fruit Mix', but I'm not quite sure what to do about 'Goodalls Spice Mix'?  According to the interwebz, it's a mix of cinnamon, coriander seeds, caraway seeds, fennel seeds, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and turmeric.  I don't think we have an equivalent mix here.  I have all those spices, but I'm not sure what ratios to mix them in....  hmmm...  Going to have to do more googling....
