1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: CLOSED Asheville Adventure - The Swap! (Sendouts 2/23/19) on: February 08, 2019 04:20:32 PM
Ok, since there seems to be a lot of interest, I'll extend the Send Out deadline.  New date: February 23!

Question from the Organizer...

There are 8 days till Send Outs in this swap.  How are you all feeling about that time frame?  I'd considering extending the Send Out date by 1 week, to February 23, if people feel they need more time.


Whew! Because I had it in my head that aebdiuts were after my vacation week, so this helps a ton!

Ive been a bit overwhelmed at work of late (and I think I was a bit snarky to my principal the other day... it was a case of can you do just one more thing? that got asked at a bad time).

Since my letter to sheepBlue seems to have gotten list (I think the envelope was dark, and the pen I used for the address might not have had enough contrast for the mail sorting machines). After I eat dinner, Ill type out a new one, because I didnt save a copy of the first one. Maybe it will show up eventually!

That looks really cool, appledainty! How do you make the petals?

I used the same dip resin I used for this my purple peony kanzashi. Smiley I talked about it a little, and posted some of the WIP pictures, in the thread for that piece here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=457125.0

I wrote a more detailed blog entry for the purple peony as well, with tips and tricks for dip resin, but that's not going up until Friday. X_x


How cool! I've never heard of dip resin before. I'll have to add it to my list of projects to try... someday Smiley

Eleven, theres definitely a lot of variability in the process! Mine were made in the heat of the summer, and I bet Id get less cracking now because theyd dry slower. Regardless, its a lot of fun, and waiting to see how they come out is part of the enjoyment:)

And, Im not going to get my Battle finished, it seems. Its the end of the term, and my schedule has been packed! I thought we might get a snow day on Wednesday, so I could make it then, but it doesnt seem like that will be happening Sad Its not a quick project, so Ill be able to submit it as a Big Time, at least!

Oh, wow! Its gorgeous! I love how the light sections play with the dark.

How many skeins did you use?

Thats exactly how you use them! Because theyre 100% cotton, you can put the bowl right in it (these are soup bowl sized), and heat it up right in the microwave. Then, you can grab it by the corners and take the bowl out of the microwave without burning your hands. I wouldnt put them in the oven, however, since I think it would definitely burn them. But, you might be able to use them to take something out of the oven (using it  like a regular potholder.

I think its the perfect solution Smiley

Thanks! I do love using them myself and, as far as I know, everyone was happy Smiley

I made a set of 4 a while ago, and it seemed like they took way longer to make. Using a template definitely made it go much faster!

Oh, I just realized the confusion craftADDchick was having over the letter part. If I write my letter to SheepBlue, how does craftADDchick get to know me for the craft Sad

So, for the Round Robin, do I send my letter & postcard to the person who is crafting for me (sheepBlue)?
