This doesn't sound like her from what I know. I was her partner in the Zodiac swap, when she was hit by Katrina, and she found a way to get on line via a cell phone to let us know that she was ok and had mail service and was working on getting all of her swaps together. She was very comunicative about her situation. She just didn't strike me as being "trouble" if you know what I mean. I hope things are well with her though, she seemed so active here. I hope this helps out somehow and isn't just chatter.

Hi all,  As noted earlier, I did privately email Rakuette in Mid November.  She did recently make email contact with me while Craftster was down. 

Rakuette is experienceing a situational crisis and has not been able to manage much beyond dealing with that.  Here is an experpt from what she wrote me
My life has been turned upside down. Please let everyone on craftster know that I am very sorry. I know I have let a lot of people down, and I feel awful.

The entire note was very brief.  However, it was amazing to me she was able to at least reach out that bit and wanted me to let you all know she is sorry.

My hope is that Swap Angels have been asigned - if not and you are a partner or organizer perhaps this info will free you to move on and get an angel in place.   

I also hope that someday, Rakuette will be able to move forward, heal from this crisis, and return again to Craftster. 

with Kind regards,

I thank everyone for this thread - I was to swap with Rakuette on NBC round 2 - I knew ahead of the swap to hold off sending thanks to this thread.

after she dropped off of chaftster I wondered about her - Thought maybe it was something beyond the normal "too busy" as she was very active and reliable up to that time. Hope what ever it is she gets thru it ok, she's in my thoughts - somtimes life gets in the way.

I also hope everything is ok with her. We did a private swap a while back. She sent me some awesome handmade soap. I just wrote her a note that I plan to mail tomorrow, just to let her know I'm thinking of her and I hope all is well.


Yep, it's a knit blog

wanna trade? I heart personal swaps.
