OGD and I have been chatting up a storm!  I have had a few setbacks with my dino swap as this one project alluded me a few too many times LOL  I ended up making something different, and WAY better.  I am almost finished with all that and then will start my sewn items (and agreed upon extras;) ) hopefully this evening.  I have been looking through patterns and books trying to find something good for OGD and have a few ideas for fabric, but nothing set in stone yet Cheesy

I have had a few questions about this so I want to answer it real fast.

You may send a pattern OR a pattern book to your partner.  Some people have mentioned a preference for one or the other and others have not. The 3-5 small items are meant to be sewing items (pincushion, freezer paper, pins, etc., ) and do not have to be handmade but certainly can be.

If there are any questions, please feel free to ask me or you can discuss with your partner what you would prefer to do Cheesy

Glamis- Don't think I'm a wierdo but I totally drew you a flower on your website...that is soooo neat! 
Thanks for letting me know. Lots of people leave something there and keep wondering who it was...

I was lucky to purchase some very cool fabric and am about to get started with the sewing.
And today I realised that I am going to be on holiday on sendout date. Silly me. Seems like i have to hurry a bit. Nevertheless is so much fun!
 

And I miss the spell check button...

OOh very cool fabric, i like the sound of that.  I too purchased some fabric today, but the selection was not as good as I had hoped.  I will also be on holiday so will be sending about the 18th or 19th  Smiley

Happy 1st Sunday Everybody.  Guess what?  I am finished with my package.  I sewed everything last night.  I will be sending my package next week. I hope that my partner likes everything that I am sending her.

So I ordered a ton of fabric from different Etsy stores, both to sew with and for my partner.
I received two packages today and the fabric I ordered that I'm sewing with...came in wrong.....harumph.
I sent her a message as well as pictures and a copy of the invoice and telling her I'm sending it back at my expense as long as she please please please sends out the correct fabric tomorrow so I can get sewing.  Smiley
I really hope she can send it out quickly so I can get it before the weekend!

On another note, all notions have been purchased, I'm just waiting for fabric from a far away land and I'm currently washing some other fabric so I can get sewing on one of my things tonight! Smiley  Hope everyone is enjoying the swap so far!!
