So, I didn't even start that last large item for TSM last night because as I went to peruse her wist for pattern/color choices for the said large I saw a new wisted item that I just HAVE to make!  The day before I had been looking at very similar things wondering if she would like them and then there it was on her wist, lol.  So, I may still make the other large + this new thing, but I wound up spending the whole evening searching for the perfect pattern for the newly wisted thing.  I found it, bought it, and now have to get 8X11 paper in order to print it.  I need to finish a couple things for my sister who just had a baby so I can bring it with me on Thursday when I fly up there, but after that is done (and both projects look pretty easy) I'm finishing this swap  Smiley  I'm also not going out tomorrow like I thought, so I have all of tomorrow & Sunday to work away too, and will be doing just that!

I brought my stocking and a bunch of the stuffers in to my spinning group this morning, and they got the thumbs up from the ladies, so I'm feeling much more confident now!  I have my big items done, but I have a lot of littler things I want to make still...I'll be crafting till the last minute!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

Wow - we're all crazy crafing crazies! I know a lot of people are done and sent/sending. Yeah.... not me! I will say that I have every project started but one. I will definitely be done this weekend since there are only 3 things I have left to finish. I won't be able to work on anything today, however, as we are going out of town and nothing I have left is a "protable" project. Never fear, awesome crafting amazingness is here! It shall be to the rescue all Saturday and Sunday and, like a flash of lightening, gone and sent on Monday! Leaping barnacles, Batman! Could it really be that quick? Oh yes, Robin, it could. Wink

I think I am very close to done!  Several items are complete.  Two need a handful of hand stitches.  One more needs maybe an hour to finish.  Then there is one more thing I want to do (okay, maybe two  Wink ), which should be quick.  

Then photos and wrapping on Sunday, and I meet my partner on Monday  Grin

Ack! You're sending Monday, Audania?! Ohhhhh, swap anxiety is building...

I had to replace one item (grumble, grumble, already recieved similar in the grumble, grumble Deathly Hallows swap  Wink ) But I am happy with the replacement. Or am I? Darn swap nerves!

Well we forgot about Veterans day throwing off the mail...so no check today...it should be here tomorrow, which depending on when the mail runs means i may have to hold off until Monday to send...but that's ok Smiley
