I wish we had craft classes around here!
I agree - felted bonsai hmmmmmmm
We're such a small community that no one offers classes
I'd love to learn to knit, crochet, do felted and work on my polymer skills
Heck, I'd teach all day and take classes all night!

I'm sure there's at least one or two like-minded people in your area - if you got a stitch-n-bitch coffee meet together, you might be surprised at how fast it grows! And you can learn new skills from each other.

Greetings and Salutations, all.

Just checking in and letting you all know I'm still here. I've finished three items, but I think I'm going to do one more. I'll probably be able to send next week, depending on how much time I get for non-portable crafts.

As you were. : )

I can't believe some people are already ready to send! I'm about halfway done and especially loving how some of the projects are turning out (trying something new). Pinokeeo's lucky she has a place for them and I don't.

Ok, now I'm curious.  I have lots of room outside, not much room inside, so I'm hoping it's an outside item.

I'm about halfway done with my large item, which is kind of small, and nearly done with my medium, which is kind of large, and have two smalls planned, both of which are kind of medium. Grin

Anyway, I also have a couple of little extras all ready to add in, so I'm making progress.

I love how we all have a skewed idea on 'large, medium, small' Smiley

Does anyone have a large that's actually a large, a medium that's a medium...etc.?

Where is my mind?

Well, my larges mostly tend to be "extra large" items.  For instance... digital misfit's large from another swap (IYP11) ended up taking 5 hours, even though it LOOKS like a medium.  But if you incorporate cost, it's... yeah, we're not going to go there.  Smiley

I think if your partner is happy with what you've sent, size-wise, then you're on track.  Especially in a points-system, which isn't my favorite thing to do, but it at least affords you the opportunity to discuss it with your partner.  Either way, it's never going to be clear-cut what is what size for an individual person, so there's always the risk of someone working out a medium or large on something that someone else could do in an hour. 

I knit insanely slowly, even though I've been doing it for years.  Superhooker could out-knit me any day, but I might be able to bead faster than her.  Or whatever.  You know?  I think most of us have the best intentions at heart and it will even itself out... there are certainly swappers who make bookmarks out of computer paper and marker drawings and call them mediums, but they are thankfully few and far between.   Cheesy

 Wink Yeah, my larges tend to be extra-larges, and I almost always don't include cost on that..... I just can't help myself - and for some reason, I always include extras....sometimes lots.... Roll Eyes

yeah, I make these appliqued bags, which savvysister had shown an interest in..........and with the exception of the applique... I think I could cut and sew the rest with my eyes shut.... it should be a large, but since its almost mindless now.... i tend to think of them as a small... I want to spend more time and imagination on what I consider a LARGE
