6861  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Undies Swap - My Fave Themes .:CLOSED:. on: November 14, 2008 06:28:49 PM
I'm checking in, and I hope I'll be working on things this weekend. We had International Night at school last night, then I had to prepare 2 video presentations for the school committee meeting coming up on Monday (and I may have to actually do the presentation... I hope not!!!), then I have to get ready for our Science Sleuth night on Thursday! So, this weekend, I'll be designing a model for a "make & take" hermit crab, working on the same for a turtle (thank goodness the horseshoe crab is already done). Then, I have to make sexual dimorphism example signs for the bathrooms (which isn't as perverted as it sounds... it's the differences between males and females... like a male elk has antlers, but a female doesn't, a male cardinal is red, but a female is mostly tan, etc.). And, prepare my exhibit displays. And, cut and assemble a paper model of a T-rex. And make 2 horseshoe crab t-shirts...

Holy crap! It just hit me how much I have to do... and I just realized I haven't even had dinner yet...

So, I'm really hoping I get to work on my swap stuff at some point!!

Cool mask! It would be awesome for a wood sprite costume!!

And...

I updated status for folks in my group. I'm still waiting to hear from a few folks about sending, but if your status is incorrect, please let me know. I'll be out of town on Saturday, but I can make changes first thing on Sunday.

Thanks a bunch!

I'm going to be winding my little balls up soon so that I can send out soon after partners are sent. I got a yarn-ball winder, so whoever I send to will be getting lil' cakes! Smiley

Another thing that comes in handy... I taped my tape measure to my desk at 3 ft. (approx. 1 yard) and just counted out 10 lengths the last time before winding the balls. I think I did like... 10.5 or something just to be sure. Smiley

I have a ball winder, but someone in the last round said the amount was too small, so I didn't try it. Let me know if yours works- I may try it in the future!

And, brilliant idea to put the tape measure on the table. Much easier than winding it around a box!!

And, we're getting more swappers! Yay!!

Thanks for posting this and providing the pattern! I wanted to make a few of these for Christmas gifts, so it's especially timely. And, I agree, having to cut and sew the top of the towel is a pain, but having a double layered towel is a bonus!

Thanks again!

about the time my hubby starts to feel like it is too much going on, I get a package with something in it for him or that he can use, and he feels a bit better for a while.

I think of something for him to get and ask for that from my partner every so often, and I will get things for one of the girls every so often, so he doesn't feel like it is just me - which reduces his angst about postage  Wink

Blessings!

Very clever! Is there a trinket that could be sent along with this swap? Just so more yarn will be allowed in the house?  Wink

That tree painting is fabulous! But I also love the stamps and the embroidery, too Wink

Awesome bag! I have a large collection of bags, and I just love them!

I love the snowflake fabric she used Wink

And, I just checked the DC# on my package... it has arrived in the state of its destination! So, it might get delivered tomorrow!

Oh gosh craftADDchick! I'm glad you're okay though and I hope that you can get your chores done fast! Smiley

Thanks! And the chores will never be done, but I can deal with that! It's the work projects that have me crazy right now... If I can just make it to next Friday, I'll be sane again Wink

I confess... I'll be shipping late, as well! I got into a small accident yesterday (no injuries, thank goodness!), but was pretty shaken up about it, so crafting yesterday was totally out Tongue

And, I just got home about 20 minutes ago, and I have laundry and a work project to deal with... ick... So no crafting tonight or tomorrow night. Grrr...

But, the weekend should be craftastic! Grin
