Well I had a lovely crafting weekend, thanks to the arrival of my missing fabric.  Got my large thingy finished and one small - so should be ready to post by the end of this week, assuming I don't get sidetracked on my trip out for supplies tomorrow to finish off - but I'm determined not to let this happen.  Have to say I'm really pleased with the main thingy I've made - my own design and pattern, and in my mind it's just perfect for you Crazyda - but, as always with swaps, there's always that tiny niggle that I could have read you wrongly.  I wanted to post some kind of teaser pic of it, but can't think of a way of doing this that won't completely give it away, so it's going to have to be a complete surprise!!!

My sister asked me this weekend to make a hat like I made her for a friend.  I'm at the point now where I only give out homemade on birthdays and holidays to friends and relatives.  If a relative asks for something, it will take me until the next holiday to get it done.  I told my sister I won't unless her friend pays me.  I have too much going on to get sucked back into the cycle of making things for free for other people. 

I hate to do it, but I don't have enough time to get all my projects done.  I can't be supplying the whole high school.

I finished a second project this weekend so I have a small and medium done.  I bought new interfacing, though, and it wasn't as thick as I thought it would be.  I'll have to go look through Hobby Lobby and see if they have what I want. 

At some point I will get up the courage to start working on the large.

I did a good chunk of another project before getting sidetracked by Portal... but anyway, its going nicely and I'm just waiting on some measurements to make sure its big enough (its fairly free-sized, but I don't want it to be too small!)

When I make things for people that aren't my relatives (unless its a present) I usually have them pay for the materials, or if I have the materials I charge them only a little. It doesn't happen very often so for some reason I feel bad asking for the same amount I would charge a stranger... plus they usually end up paying me more anyway  Wink

Yikes!! Shocked  ALREADY??!  LOL!  Props to you, monnie!!  I still have vague ideas and concrete plans, but no actual items made Tongue  Here's to hoping I fix that situation today...

I'm in the same spot, stalled!  I did cut out and start something, kind of a trial to see if it will work.  Need some supplies.  Actually started to go to Joannes yesterday, but it started RAINING!  Now we are in a drought here locally, like 17 or more inches under where our rain fall should be, so I came home to dance naked in the rain in the back yard, but it quit!       (just kidding) (about the dancing.  the rain did stop)

Too bad I don't hear voices, I would enjoy the company

So I finished a medium thingy last night.

Not to get my partner too excited, but I'm pretty sure it's the coolest thing I've ever made. lol

Now to finish the large thingy this weekend and the small thingy I've been working on but can't find supplies for.
