Embroidery is an excellent travel craft. Just sayin' Wink.

I'm at a new full time job & also prepping for a craft fair so only have time for small swaps lately. I loved the last round of this but I got carried away. I'm afraid I don't have 40+ hours to stitch another one right now. I'll happily watch the gallery though Smiley.

I'm not online as much as I used to be, don't panic if it takes a while for me to reply to things Smiley.

Yay Taoj!  And bbm... another old swap partner and a cousin both see me posting my new crafting on fb and noted they havent been on craftster lately either but were reinspired to take a look again... I for one am looking forward to be more into organizing... I have a lot of ideas or even wanting to resurrect old rounds etc...  and I noticed a few coming back besides me... lets hope we can keep the momentum.  Do we still do challenges?

Well, usually it would be a good project, just not for me with some other stresses I have in my life. But, it is a great theme, so maybe I'll use that as a wishlist item in the upcoming OTT swap.

Yes, I've seen fewer swaps than I was expecting, just from looking at archives, but I can say there are more swaps in things that I am interested in, and I just have to be careful not to overextend myself. All the swaps I've done so far have easily taken 9-20 active crafting hours, and I know I can't do 5 of those at one time! Grin Plus, I do a lot of projects for friends, for my dance troupe, and around my house, so that eats into swap time, too. Glad to see old Craftster members popping back in, as well as newer members like myself!

I know the embroidery challenge/craft-a-long is still going, and I think a couple others are, too, like the Harry Potter one.

Dying to get partners! Wink

I may or may not have been embroidering on my train ride into the city over the weekend... Wink

Most of the swaps I've been doing on Craftster have been smaller lately. It's been a bit slower in general here in recent years. Facebook and Instagram swaps seem to be all the rage these days...personally, I prefer to swap where there's a sense of community. Smiley

Man, I wish I could craft in the car (not that that would help me now, since I have to do the driving), but in general! I get carsick so easily.

I agree with the idea of wanting community to swap. It's more, you actually get to know people, you "see" them repeatedly, there's more commitment/follow through, etc. All around, I feel safe swapping here. Don't think I would on Facebook...

I swapped a ton both here and on Instagram last year. I've even hosted a couple Instagram swaps, but I still prefer to swap here. I haven't done any Instagram swaps at all this year.

I have embroidered and crocheted in the car before, but unfortunately there will be no elbow room for me. My brother is flying in and then driving with us. He gets carsick so he'll most likely get the passenger seat and I'll be squeezed in the back with the kids.

This is such a great theme that I did add it to my OTT wishlist, though.  I hope you're able to get more people, but small swaps can be fun, too.
