Everyone participating should have received a PM from me with their swap information. If you didn't let me know.

We can use this thread to chat while we all wait for our craft! I can't wait to see what everyone makes.

Remember, if you feel you aren't going to be able to get your craft made and sent to your assigned gal by October 25th, please PM me.

Happy Crafting!!

mine is done...will have it in mail FRI...would have been out sooner but lost a week with everything going on.

Mine will be going out Saturday morning. I have encountered many interruptions and hurdles trying to get mine done. Not to mention work has been so busy/stressful that some days I come home with a migraine and can't see straight. Hopefully the recipient will like it. :quesion

I got mine today! I'll have pictures tomorrow (working on admin stuff today) :D
Mine'll be sent out Sunday (at the local grocery store).

missdamsel
10-21-2013, 10:47 PM
Mine will not be out in time. :( With moms surgery and being stuck at home I just haven't had a chance to mail it. It didn't turn out the way I had hoped, but it is done. I will be leaving Wednesday for a week and will mail it as soon as I return next week. I promise.

Sarah
10-21-2013, 10:59 PM
I'm in the same boat as Missi :(
Well, the not on time. Truck had a transmission gasket leak. We took it in LAST WEEK, and it flooded out this evening. I'd planned to mail it out today (I have to take it in), but the dryer had issues, so I had to have maintenance come make sure it wasn't our circuit breaker box.
Ugh!

It's been finished for like TWO WEEKS but car issues and scheduling issues, etc, have just ... ugh!

Jacque
10-21-2013, 11:05 PM
mine will be out tomorrow. i know i said the 16th but truthfully...still dealing with FIL's estate and the exhaustion from the trip. it's all done and hubby forgot to mail it so i'm mailing it when i go into town tomorrow :)

nutsaboutgabe
10-22-2013, 12:17 AM
Hi All -- mine did go out Saturday, but it's not expected to be delivered until Friday! Seriously was bummed about that. I'm hoping it's received earlier than that. I like how it turned out but I had a rough go. The item items really didn't cost me more than $10, but the purchase of a tool did. hehe I should mention I don't like Home Depot anymore and will strictly be a Lowe's customer (if I can help it!).

StephanieH
10-22-2013, 12:25 AM
I might add that mine didn't cost more than $10 either. :) Most everything I used was left from another project. It was fun.

Very nice Stephanie! I love the scarf. Wendy, of Wendy Tunison Designs, made me a scarf like that in the last swap with yellow and green coloring. Love the picture Sarah. You are too cute.
