Not everything is going to fit into the stocking, but I think I"m going to put the smaller stuff in and then pack around it. 

Unfortunately, my crafting time has been cut short the past few days and ALL my bills came out of this paycheck, so the stocking and some other crafts are on hold until I get paid again. Sad

There's no way some of my stuff will fit in a stocking. LOL

hmm being in a three way swap makes it difficult to decide how much to send. If im sending a medium i have 4/7 required crafted items finished. I need to finish my stocking but its all going well so far

I totally feel you! Its a tough call! Smiley

I think im just goign to craft untill the 20th and then send all i made/bought XD if its med its med if its large then its Large No harm no foul

Good point! I have some fun stuff to try, so I figure it can't hurt. I have some fun stuff going, so I'm good Smiley

Hello!

I started my large today - the long pile fabric I am working with is just killing me.  Blah.  Anywho - I started out making a ______, but when I looked at it, it looked more like a _________, which is great, cuz that fits the christmas theme better!  And of course, this gave me ideas about the stocking.  now i am off to class...

so. i spent the day with my iron, sewing machine and  fabric bins,   Smiley

i was so proud of myself.  i was making such awesome progress to finishing a cool thing and then i realized.  i cut wrong.  i had the most epic math fail ever.

so i am 25 % done. instead of 90 % done.  Sad

i did finish something for her daughter one.  and daughter two's  little something is 95% done.  Smiley

I tend to over swap. I can't help it but I always end up with more just because I love holidays so much and I'm a compulsive shopper. I am really trying hard to use what I have (which is A LOT) to accomplish this swap. I did do some light shopping today for supplies for my big item. I'm excited and I should get some major crafting in this weekend.

I am working on the stocking and realized I made a miscalculation on materials needed, so had to order some more.  It shipped out, but is coming from the West Coast, so here is keeping fingers crossed that they get here on time.   This could make me late on sending out, but I let all the powers that be know.
