I feel like such a slacker on my list!  The problem is that I keep joining swaps and crafting for those.  So....  new goal for me....  don't join anymore swaps!!  Roll Eyes  I think if I avoid joining anymore swaps right now then I'll be able to work on things from my list.  What a concept!  Cheesy

I'm in the same boat Ffrogg! I've cut back on my swapping but the problem is where I dont do as much swap crafting any more the school work has picked up so my free time for crafting for me is still limited. I'm seriously seriously going to stop swapping for at least a couple of months (I say that now....curse all the awesome people that come up with awesome swaps I cant resist) so when I have a little free time I can spend it on myself for once!

I will be making her another one but I am experimenting with a huge zipper and maybe a clear, see through front for her to see what she has! Cheesy

Ooh - clear is a great idea!

Oh how true that is!  In the two weeks before spring break my Chorus is going sooooo many different places and I still have to teach a full schedule plus they're starting to get ready for EOGs...  craziness!  Roll Eyes  I think I've decided that I'm going to go on swap sabatical for the summer.  That seems like a loooooooong time but at the same time....  I've gotten so many things from some swaps (NOT ALL!  I PROMISE!)  that I never use.  They just take up space and I don't need more stuff like that.  So...  swap sabatical for me.  now that being said...  no one's allowed to come up with awesome irresistible swaps!  Wink  Grin

Finally got one of the WIPs done, a small reading journal for a friend in my book club's birthday party last night. I feel a little better that at least something is finished, anyway. (And she seemed to like it.)



The center design on the fabric is needlepunched. (Anybody know a good substitute for the now-gone DMC thread? This stuff--Sullivan's--sucked.)

Gone? What were you using? I've never needlepunched. Does it require a specialty thread?

The journal is really nice, by the way.

There's special thread for needlepunching? I've not tried that so I have no idea.  Undecided

I love your journal graced! Did you add in the marker with the beads? Is that attached to the cover?

I am amazed at how many ways a journal can be covered or made!

I bought about one yard of this really cool suede-like fabric for making journal covers...I need to go look at a few tutes...

Altoid tin embroidery kit...*sigh*  I shouldn't go look, but I know I will! Smiley

oh my goodness...I just realized something...hang on...

Had a free day, but a storm decided to come and dump rain and snow on me, ruining my plans.

So I was forced to make earrings all day instead. Ironically none of the projects I needed to do though. I need to finish up one more pair and then I will post pictures.

That journal is really cool Graced! I love that fabric!
