Checking in.  My deadline of Sunday got squashed due to a pattern error.  I was attaching a band, thinking something wasn't right.  I checked the pattern instruction picture, and was assured I'd done as pictured.  When the bag was done, I just wasn't happy with that area.  It didn't look bad, but something just wasn't right.  I then re-read some online reviews of the pattern, and sure enough, one person said the picture of the band attachment was WRONG!  That's what I get for being too "visual" and not READING the instructions.   
So, I started again, and should be done by Wednesday night.  This time, everything is going quicker since I've done the whole thing once.  That was my plan anyway - but I thought if the first one came out stellar, I'd send it off. 
Thank goodness for a loooong crafting time on this. 
My older DD loved it, and asked if I'd make her one -- so I gave it to her. 

If you are interested in making me some knitted dishcloths, contact me for a swap!  I'll sew you something or gift you with supplies!

This weeks check in is sooner for me, because I will be out of town. I fly out Friday the 13th and don't get back till Friday the 20th (death in the family and I must go to NJ)
I might get online while there (Addicted.. to.. Crafters...AHHHHH)
but in case I don't I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.

I've received.  I will take pics and post them later today.

I am almost completely finished with mine.  As I have posted elsewhere and PM'd my partner, I ran into a crisis on Mon that put me out $1000 so if my taxed don't come by Friday (which they are supposed to) then I will let everyone know.  I'd hate to send late, but that may be a must unfortunately.  Pray for the swift direct deposit from the IRS.

Good Morning Y'all!

I have 3 of the 4 parts completed. But I also snagged Disco Queen Highness for the March Birthday Swap - So I am going put it all in one box. Yippee! Yippee!

How is everyone going on their Bag of Talent?

For those of you who have shipped early and their partner has received, please check your profile to be sure that you have feedback.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
