I just got a couple of the Joey Green books and can't wait to have a gander at them.  On a swap related note, I'm thinking of scrapping the original design of one thing and substituting another idea for the same thing.  I'll let it simmer a couple of days then get started.  That way none of the stash go to waste.

I'd love to do a personal swap for this knit Death Flake hat

I have finished the medium and am a good way into one of the smalls (though I'm not sure if it qualifies as a small? who cares!). Another small is waiting for my sewing machine to be repaired (there goes our frugal budget for the month and next). And the last small will take 10 minutes to mix up. Just have to find some small enough baggies. The gallery pics make me feel really inadequate because I don't have near the stash of those who have already posted. I went to goodwill and bought a flannel blanket (and washed it, of course) because I don't have any flannel in my stash. I may cut up an old shirt that I don't wear any more just to have some color variety, but it still won't be close to what's already up. That's ok, cause I think I will excel in other areas (I hope anyway!).

WOO HOO  from me too, in that case!!
I am still busily crafting away, but getting there! not much longer now. Should at least be able to send a bit early!

I finished just a little bit ago!  Woot.  I just need to write the card and package it all up.  I'll be sending tomorrow or Tuesday.

I should be finishing up over the nest few days, just a little sewing to do and all done!


I am interested in doing personal swaps!!!
