So I've been crafting my booty off this last week. I made several neckwarmers for one swap, a dreamcatcher for another, am making pantas both for a swap and for the upcoming craftfair.... Need to make a pair of wristwarmers for a swap, and then there's a whole list of other stuff I need to do still. Oh, I made about a dozen or so stitchmarkers the other day, need to make more though. I also did a little bit of knitting on my socks. And on a Prayer Shawl. Need to make a few of those, too.
*sigh*  No rest for the wicked, huh ^_~. I do have pictures of some of the stuff I've made so far, but I won't be posting them. Yet. I want to get done what needs to get done first, so I don't have to stress too much. Once things settle down a bit, I'll take the time to upload all my photos and show it all off. ^_^
Ok, for now though..naptime! Have to be up in 2 hours, ungh....

Yay, my first swap angel package was received. She loved everything! Unfortunately, I didn't have a camera yet, so I asked her to take some pictures when she got it all. Which means there's not many detailed pictures, but more of a general idea.
Here's what I made:

I've been working on something for one of the swaps all day today. Well, all my waking time, pretty much. I've had a bad headache all day (well, one of those now it's bad, now it's dull, now it's bad again kinda thing). I've been dead tired as well. The "no sleep" thing is catching up on me hardcore. But still, I have to get this done. I actually did most of the sewing already. It's looking prtty good, especially for my firs time behind the sewing machine on my own. Though the fabric did pull a bit more then I would've liked. Dustin says it looks ok though. I've pinned down the thingamajigger I'm putting on it (sorry, too tired to think of the name of it right now) and begun sewing it to the fabric, I'd say I'm about 1/4 way done with that. Once it's on, all that needs doing is sewing the sides together and putting in the pillow.
None of which will happen right now. It's going to have to wait until tomorrow, which sucks. I was hoping to be able to send it out then, but it may have to wait until Friday, unless I can manage to finish it off afterall. We'll see. It's not really due for another week anyway, but I'd have liked to be able to ship everything out in one go. I am actually pretty pleased with everything I've done so far. Not just for this swap, but for the others as well, and for the craft fair. I've been a busy little girl these last few weeks. It's been very nice though, especially because this has made me work on things I normally push aside in order to knit the shawls. Felt good to stretch my horizons a bit again.
Right now though, I think I'd better try and sleep for a few hours (or however long my body'll let me sleep. That's always up for debate). Crafting shall continue in the morning again.

Might as well make this, so it's ready to roll when I can join in on some swaps! Here goes nothing!

This page is intended to help my swap partners figure out just what the heck to craft for me. Keep in mind, these are just general guidelines. Feel free to surprise me if you have a great idea!

So I've committed to "angel" for two people now. Quite exciting. I've been working alternatively on Prayer Shawls, and on something for the first person (I only accepted the second one this morning). I can't say what, since I can't risk her chancing on this blog. But so far, I'm liking it. I'll be making a copy of it for myself as well, I think. That is, after I've done the stuff for both people, and another swap.

Ohh, speaking of swaps, if someone has a good idea for an icon that'd be suitable to use for any entries about swapping, that'd be lovely. I don't have any set ideas right now, just that I'd like a special icon for it. Thanks! For now though, my current icon is inspiring me to make a cuppa! Mmm, tea! Chocolate tea, even!

Anyway, back to swapping. I've got a ton of ideas already, and I've only just begun. Not sure what I'll end up doing yet though, aside from what I'm already working on. Since both ladies got flaked on, I want to do a little more then what is required from their swap, normally. But it'll have to be done with whatever I have on hand, of course. That's part of the charm of swapping, in my opinion. As little shopping as possible, since I normally don't even splurge on myself lol.
Ok, I've got tea to make, and a project to finish.
