Ack, my wrist is failing me so my daughter's set of TMNT minis will have to go on the back burner.  But I did finish mini Raphael and he's cute.  I have his brothers' heads waiting for their bods.  Smiley

Me too  Undecided I did start a medium sized project, but I have so many ideas for the rest I don't know where to start!

I've got a bunch of small/medium stuff done, and I'm casting on for my first large project this weekend.  I've been plowing through stuff for my other swaps, though, so soon this will be my only swap to work on!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

I had the same problem. So I wrote down my ideas. put points next to each, they totaled like 28 or something ridiculous so I just said well how about this, this and this? So I made a list of supplies I needed, went to the fabric store, yes with my kids, only to find no fabric and had to resort to other things. So I started my list over, then went back to the fabric store to get other crafty items. Then I say okay this is gonna take this long, this one this long and this one this long. So I have until this date to finish the first project, then another date to finish 2nd one, etc. That way I'm all organized, I know they are all planned out and they will not be late. Hope this helps. And hope everyone is having fun.  Grin Grin

Well i still have everything in the cut fabric stage ready to be sewn... my sewing machine may need to be sent in for repair, but luckily my mom has a spare so i will finish this swap on time!! Not so good though for the 2 slings that are to be done by friday!! Guess i will be sewing at snail speed on the machine to prevent it from getting any worse!!!  Undecided

and we're moving for june so i've been thinking about packing, blah. it makes my brain hurt.

we are too!  between that, a fulltime job that is extremely hectic right now, and my little guys, it's hard to find time for much else.  and yet here i am...just finished with 3 hours of crafting for this swap and checking in here before i head to bed.  strike that...it's almost time for the littlest's breathing treatment, so i guess i'll be here another 15 minutes or so.  then i play piano at church in the morning...but then i may use naptime to get a bit more done!  it's not fair - i'm having too much fun and have too many ideas for this swap to be so busy!  Wink

Will swap for baby food jars (or other small jars with lids)
