The cuff is LOVELY!

I'm so glad my packages finally arrived.  I always feel so guilty because packages take soooooo long to get to me/get away from me.  This middle of nowhere living is great except for that.  I'm glad you liked the lapghan and it seems to go very well with your couch and child.  Smiley  I had the squares done already I admit, I was just waiting for a reason to sew them together and do a border - you were a perfect excuse. 

As to the mohawk hat - I don't think there's a way to photograph it well.  Smiley  I tried quite desperately before I sent it. 

Oh and I don't what is taking Canada Post so long getting my package to sunspotted! They said it would be 3 days!! Its past that now.... lets blame the "lovely" Canadian snow Cheesy

Three days, what a laugh.  It takes three days to get here from the actual town/post office 89 kms away.  Smiley

I am primarily a crocheter for two reasons.  A - I love it and 2 - It is fairly difficult to impale yourself on a crochet hook or otherwise hurt yourself during the pursuit of the perfect afghan.  I am a clumsy person.  I have poor hand-eye coordination and during my creation I think my portion of grace was accidentally given to some ballet dancer and I received extra helpings of sarcasm instead.  All this is to say that I am about to embark on a new project for RhymeswOrange.  It involves sharp implements, fire and plenty of opportunities for personal maiming.  I am well rested and properly but not overly caffeinated, so this is my best shot.  Wish me well.  If I still have all my fingers later I will report back.

7. Cookies for Library Open House

Of course I forgot to take a picture until it was 2 a.m. and the cookies were already packed and ready to go but here's a crappy photo anyway.  Four dozen each of triple chocolate, peanut blossom, cherry and heart-shaped sugar cookies for the local library.  Hope there's lots of hungry readers today.  Smiley 
25  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: suggestion about reversing negative feedback on: February 12, 2011 06:38:16 PM
I see people in that FOC angel swap going on right now who flaked in a swap I was running just a few months ago.  I know all their partners are still around and I just don`t understand why they would choose that option and not just put on their big girl panties and send to their original partners.  It`s frustrating but people often choose the path of least resistance. 

yup..I'd imagine that mostly original partners are still around..

WOW! Just caught up on this thread and must put in my two cents on the topic.  I just completed the FOC 2nd chance swap and reversed 2, yes 2, negatives.  When I saw this opportunity it lifted my spirits and I was very grateful to have the chance to get back into good standing.  Now that feedback is positive again, I'm not jumping right into swapping again because I really want to make it up to the craftsters I flaked on.  And, I'm not the only one from this swap that's doing that... Click here for her post.  I know what I thought about flakers before extenuating circumstances turned me into one.  I wouldn't lump everyone who ever flaked into the same category, you just never know one's story!

I'm not lumping everyone together, I was making a statement about the three or so people who flaked in a recent swap I organized.  However, while the Second Chance Swap is a nice idea, I still think the best redemption comes from making things up to your original partner.  A few years ago I got pneumonia while participating in a couple of swaps.  I was too sick to send on time, so I got negative feedback which was very deserved.  When I was well again, I contacted my original partners and swap organizers, completed and sent their packages and reversed my negatives that way.  They had deserved and received angel packages but I still wanted to fulfill my obligations.  In my mind I just think you should make things up to your original partner (if possible) before angeling or participating in this redemption swap, but that is completely just my opinion.  I'm glad people are using the opportunity to come back to swapping and hope that they are all as responsible as you about jumping back into it.

Some really awesome crafts in this gallery so far and Spiced Grapefruit Marmalade sounds so delicious I think I'm going to have to have toast for dinner - even without the marmalade.   Grin

I've got some more supplies to put up, mainly some acrylic yarn.

I would be all over some acrylic yarn if you are destashing and I even have a few points to spend.  I have a yarn problem (which I am totally okay with) and a minor addiction to making scrapghans, so particularly any bright or cool colours would be very welcome in my home.

Started another something for RhymeswOrange today and so far so good.  I think she'll love it.

Those are such pretty fingerless gloves! 

I received from my partner stepharella on Monday.  She claims to be new at crocheting, but she made me this gorgeous scarf and cozy slippers and she doesn't look like a beginner at all to me.  I absolutely love this shade of brown and it goes so nicely with the pink and cream and green.  Just beautiful. 

I took an action photo but it just made apparent how long it's been since I shaved my legs, so here's my floor modeling instead.  Thanks so much stepharella, it was great swapping with you.  Smiley
