Details of swap:
If you missed it last year, this is a swap that challenges us to get into our stashes and use the really special stuff we've been saving for far too long, for that one-of-these-days project that never seems to materialize. It's a one item swap, the main project can have more than one element (such as a set of jewelry or similar) but extras are not required so it's low pressure and adheres to the idea of using the special supplies we've been holding on to (there will be a section in the Q about whether or not extras are wanted and partners will be paired accordingly as well as is possible). This is considered a ***LARGE in terms of time and effort but it's up to partners to decide on the physical size of the item. New notions etc are acceptable but the really special whatever-they-ares should come from your collection. Check out round 1, it was incredibly special.
I will try to pair people up as well as possible based on what one person has a stash of and what another person might want to receive so please list the type of precious items you've got to use in your questionnaire, mention technique as well if applicable (like crochet, painting, what-have-you).

*** A large item is generally considered 4+ hours of time to create, not including drying time or the like. 4+ hours of actual crafting the item. That's eight sessions of 30 minutes each over 3 weeks, you can do it!

I am not signing up, although I want to. The whole wedding thing is really getting in the way of my swaps.
