Oh Please!  You're making my mouth water.  Tongue  Swiss chocolate is my fav but the only kind you can get in Utah is Lindor Lindt Chocolates. 

Labor Day here in Utah was cold and VERY wet so there wasn't much vacationing here.  I hope everyone else had a good Labor Day weekend.  It's good that Hurricane Gustav isn't turning out to be as bad as Katrina.  Our thoughts are with everyone in the gulf states especially with those who have experienced tragedies.

I'm very anxious to see the gallery being filled with amazing crafts.  It feels like Christmas to me!  I can't wait until I get my crafts from Katz!  ~ Hope you're feeling better every day.

My goodness, some of you are FAST! I just completed a "practice" project for one of my items....solves my issue of wanting to keep everything for myself and also ensures that I won't be sending out an item full of mistakes. Wink I'm pretty sure that I'll be sending right around that deadline. This swap period seems to be going by awfully fast.

Gotta get off the computer and back to craftin'...

  I can't send photos in a pm... so maybe this will help!
maybe this will help-
Thr front of my house.  I sit out here and read a lot, we do hang things on the door and beside the door.  To the right of the door is my iron rooster bell, llove that thing!

We have a very open house- this is part of the kitchen, dining and you can see the entry... messyness and all!   

This is my chair in the living room- right now I am trying to hand sew at night and I am having to drag lamps all over for proper lighting. 

The other side of the living room.  cozy couches, lots of room to hang.  Nothing too fussy or formal... lot of books though!

and this is the dining room... too bright of a photo I know. 

All the walls are a kinda green/tan color and all the floors are dirt colored Smiley  I did realize that we have nothing on the walls, I think when we painted we just never got much back up and when I see the photos it does look plain.

wow Deb I love your house, lots of books and comfy chairs, exactly what I like.  it is interesting how climate makes such a difference to architecture. My house has smaller rooms, and they all need to be able to be shut off from one another, otherwise heating bills are astronomical, for the same reason windows tend to be a bit smaller,usually with thick curtains for extra insulation on cold days.

Thanks for the pix, it gives me a better idea of some things I have in mind, there will be a crafting blitz over the weekend.

I love personal swaps,  I print a lot of random fabric, usually with no purpose in mind.  let me know if you want any of it.

That big glass door off the dining room will actually heat most of the house in the winter so much sun comes in.  In the summer we roast if we don't keep those blinds closed. 

Ok.. the husband is home so i am off the computer and down to the dungeon to sew Smiley

Aaargh. It is nearly 1am over here and I've been embroidering one tiny item for over two hours.
Need. Some. Sleep.
At least I had SOME sense when I opted out using satin stitch...

Honey I'm home....back from switzerland, it was awesome, my jaw is still on the floor from the scenery, it was amazing, what was even more amazing to us Irish people, was 10 days of sunshine. The weather this 'summer' (ha! summer...ha!) has been atrocious, rain and rain and rain, so
colorado deb I adore those fabrics and whatever they turn into will bring some much needed sunshine into my house. I cant wait.

back to work today, after arriving back yesterday, its been an insane couple of days, but we did bring back about 20lbs of chocolate, to give away to everyone, we arrived at the airport with about $60 in swiss francs so what else could we do except convert it to chocolate....the swiss eat more choc per head than any other nation in the world, they give their soldiers chocolate in rations and they give it out on their airlines, the duty free in zurich has more chocolate shops than anything else...is that a country that knows is stuff or what??? and the quality of even the cheap supermarket stuff is fabulous...mmmmmmmm

but I have a few days now to concentrate on some serious craftiness....and to work on my chocolate consumption

I envy you for all the chocolate you got! I went to Switzerland a few months ago and LOVED it! I didn't want to come back. I couldn't take my eyes off the beautiful scenery too. I definitely want to go back sometime. How long did you go for?

In crafting new, I'm almost done with the package for my partner.....just trying to finish up some small items.

One more week and then the gallery will start filling up!  I am way excited.  Grin
