Can a group of items (that could form a collection) count as one medium item?

I would say yes. As long as you have slippers/socks in there (bought or made) it's fine. Wink

Yay for partners!!! Feel a tad guilty we did do the BYOP option but super excited to be crafting with the bestie!!!

Don't feel guilty. It's the postage (hiked!!) prices that are the problem. I can see that the number of swaps has already reduced considerably over the last 2 years.

I said IYP is an option, it was just the fact that lots of swappers stateside (and everywhere really) got bitten by postage prices and they don't want to send outside US anymore.

All good though. Unfortunately, chase_acow decided to pull out because I couldn't give her anyone to swap with within the US who wasn't already partnered up.

After a bit of shuggling about (international posting is understandably an issue for a lot of people, and postage gets more expensive by the month it seems) and me stepping in again and TAOJ thankfully willing to post to Europe instead of Canada/US only we have now partners!!


With the hole postage thing: Obviously it is personal choice, but I was thinking to keep the postage down would be a good thing. Remember, you're sending slippers/socks, and you don't have to stuff them to the brim like a stocking. Also, the swap is for 1 Medium swap item.

So if you're deciding to make slippers/socks, that's where I was setting the time/size of swap. I personally know that I'm a slow crafter, so will most likely be more than 3 hours, but it will be in a light material.

Please take into account that levels of speed are different for different crafters, and while we don't want "a quick fix" being sent out, this should be taken into account.

Also... it's a busy season with holidays etc (for you stateside more than me over in UK), so please do not stress out. I am hoping for a calm crafty swap.


Phew... sorry... that probably shouldn't be in this swap thread, but I feel that lots of swaps are not going ahead because of a) postage/cost and b) because slower crafters feel they can't sign up because they take longer for their swaps and c) people stressing out about their level of craftiness.

Aaaaanyway..... go forth and craft!!  Cheesy Cheesy

Vic has been busy helping in the kitchen:

First, he helped the girls making a face pizza.



Then he was quite desperate for my plum crumble cake to come out of the oven...

How did I miss these last patches? I guess I was busy and just thought I'd kept up.

I love the superhero and Dr. Who fabrics, and those machine-stitched pictures are brilliant, Inselaeffchen!

Thank you, Wulf! The guitar is actually hand stitched ... Wink I could never manage that with my sewing machine I don't think!

Vic has been away with my twin girls and their grandparents up north last week. He didn't get to see much of the area, but had a lot of fun in the play barn!! And he had SLUSHIE!!



On Saturday we're going to the Royal Botanical Gardens for the "Halloween Trail" ... please keep your fingers crossed the weather will stay dry!!
