7141  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: GRANNIES DAUGHTERS CROCHET SWAP R1 (CLOSED) Sendout-10/13/08 on: September 09, 2008 03:12:55 PM
I was thinking about this too craftADDchick, and i think you have to wait because you'll get about say 6 different colours on the first round, but when the next round comes around you'll have different partners and different colours. So....if you sew up all the first round ones together you'll end up with a clump of all the same 6 colours in one part of the blanket, whereas if you wait, you can spread all the colours all over the blanket and avoid clumps of the same colour.  Does this make sense at all?Huh? It makes sense in my head but not so good written down. Sigh.

I hadn't thought of having a clump of color (even though I may clump colors in the end) in such random ways! So now, I'm definitely thinking I need to wait until the end...

Thanks for thinking of that!

Two fantastic sets of undies! I love that song lyrics are written out on each pair! You did it so neatly, too! If I had tried that, they would have been completely crooked...

And, the House undies are a riot! I love how you did the days of the week like the House title logo. Love the daily themes, too!

And, my undies were delivered to my partner this morning! I'm so glad they have been safely received... and I don't have to keep obsessively checking...

What an excellent set! How are the letters made? Is it sparkly paint? I think I like the daisies the best!

And, I can't wait to see the ones that you made, chucklikesart! The teaser shots look very interesting!!

I can't decide whether to join them as I get them, or wait until I have them all and then join them in some kind of pattern- keep all the greens together, etc. and put the variegateds around the edges. On one hand, if I join them as I get them, it'll seem like less work at the end, but on the other hand, I could maybe get a cool pattern if I wait...

Decisions, decisions...

Whew! Thanks for the info tattooedcrafter and bsonlytoots! Now, why didn't I think to check the USPS website...

I feel much better now Wink

Okay, I just went through and read all of the posts in the thread, and as for weaving in the outside end, I'm going to check with my partners, since I didn't start any yet. If my partner hasn't woven the ends in, then I'll send a set with unwoven ends. And, if they have woven in the ends, then I'll weave them in as well. That way, it seems more fair (since I loathe weaving in ends Wink ).

As for colors, I'm thinking that I might use black to do all of my joining. I have a bunch of small balls of yarn from the Odd Ball Swap and they were destined for a scrap afghan. If I use that yarn to get me started, I should have a wide variety of daughters to send. I also have a bunch of yarn that was donated for my classroom, so I can snag a few small balls of yarn from there, as well.

Oh, she's so cute! And, it almost looks like she drew a self-portrait in her journal Wink

I'm still planning my ideas and gathering my supplies. I need to stop signing up for swaps so I can craft for myself Wink

I forgot to say that I love the apron, and the mini mitts and the bag holder! The next time I have a "craft day" with my friends, I might be making a bunch of mini-mitts so I can bring them in to school to put beside the microwaves in the teachers' room. I don't know how many times I've burned my fingers...

My package to hngoodlet is still waiting at the PO to be picked up... and it's KILLING me!
Wink

oooo ... i hope she hurries before they send it back to you!

I know, that's what worries me! Because if I get them back, I might be too tempted to keep them Wink  Do you know how long the PO will hold a package before they return it? I know UPS doesn't hold things for more than a few days...

The cookbook/recipe review book is such a great idea!  I may have to copy it for my kitchen.  Although, that may require getting all of my cookbooks in the same room!   Roll Eyes  Great job, craftADDchick!!

Ditto that! My current system involves making photocopies of all the recipes I like and use a lot out of the (way too many) cookbooks I own, and putting them in a big binder, but I really like the rating and comments "system" of yours, craftADDchick. What a great idea!
The recipe review book looks great and is such a neat idea, craftADDchick!

Thanks folks! I was inspired by a book log/journal that someone made for the Summer Reading Swap. I knew that I wouldn't use one to keep track of my regular books, but cookbooks seemed ideal. The rating system was originally stars, but then I realized that I had a "Bon Appetit" symbol font, so I replaced the stars with the pots!

I can share a PDF of the log pages if anyone wants them (and the divider pages too) ... just let me know and I can set them up and post a link here!
