Even though it's a bright, hot summer and a profusion of flowers are blooming wherever you look, there are still some grey days. I've had a few lately & I feel like I could use a little cheering up. How about you? Want to brighten somebody's day and have them shine a little glorious colour back into yours? Of course you do! And with 3 weeks of crafting time for a medium item, you can surely squeeze it into your busy summer schedule. I sure hope so because I know I am not the only one longing for a gallery full of beautiful ROYGBIV!

Details of swap:
For this swap we shall each craft a medium parcel for our partner. Official Craftster guidelines describe a medium as taking 2 or more hours to craft (not including shopping time, drying time, etc), some examples of which might be: one single necklace or bracelet, or a scarf, the relative price of which could equal: $10- $30.
***There's been some discussion about crafting one small item for each colour of the rainbow so please list whether you want to do that and also whether you want to receive that (the answer can be yes for only one of those options but if your partner is making you 7 smalls you may want to reciprocate with a large in return. I trust you to work it out in your chats because you are all so awesome like that). Extras are not required (again, discuss with your partner if you want to exchange those) but I think a personal note or card is always such a sweet thing to receive so please take the time to send a greeting, perhaps include an uplifting story or adventure you've had recently. Share something nice Smiley.

Me too! I've been researching practical items because they get asked for a lot and I found such beautiful glorious rainbow things! Check out these lovely baskets and bowls:




Those are more larges than mediums but small versions could be made. I know I love doing patchwork, that can be sewn into so many items. Here's a zippered pouch I made that I think I'd consider a medium:

OMGOSH... stop... youre twisting my arm!

And song lyrics play in my head every time I see the title...

Lord make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother
She'll know I'm safe with you when
She stands under my colours, oh and
Life ain't always what you think it oughta be, no...
