Swaps and all that fun stuff

MYSTERY YARN BALL SWAP
This is what I sent to my partner for the Mystery Yarn Ball Swap. 

This is what I put together for her! I included this set of stitch markers, plus some Harry Potter trading cards. I also used a skein of RH Symphony to finish wrapping…I ran out! LOL~ This was my first Mystery Yarn Ball swap, and I had lots of fun putting it together. It took a while to wind it all, but that was part of the fun! I hope she enjoyed everything!

Mystery Yarn Ball
Selah’s partner should have received hers by now, but we forgot to take a picture. I do know that everything but the Holiday Knits book and Michaels mints from the 1st pic, plus a pattern book of baby sweaters and a big Strawberry Shortcake sweater book. Her partner makes sweaters for children for charity. Selah thought that would be neat for her to have. I think she yanked some of my pre-made stitch markers..but I can’t remember , lol! I’ll have to ask her.

 

The final results: The 1st one from me, and the 2nd from Selah. We were able to wrap her books up, they were soft. Her skein started out a small looking 3.4 ounce ball, and ended up looking like a skein of RH, the 7 ouncers! Just sort of funny to me, lol!

 

OTHER SWAPS

OK, this is a little clutch/pouch thing that I made for another swap. I wont say which one, or for who, they haven’t received it yet. I just had to share! It’s nothing major, and it’s not what I had planed for it to be, but there you go! I thought it was cute. I used Caron SS for the outside, and RH for the lining. See the button, that’s for easy removal for when you have to wash it. I just realized though, that if the inside needs to be washed, most likely the outside will need to be as well…Hmmm. Ohhh my mind lately!lol!

I have some Halloween squares to show! I love it when I can do this (alternate the colors on the other sq):

As you can see, I have been playing around with the basic granny. I did the diamond by pulling my alternate yarn along. I’m giving this ago, and practicing because pretty soon, I’m going to try crocheting from a chart. That will be interesting, I’m sure!

HSK SWAP

I am working slowly on my kit tote for Miranda. I’m using the colors she likes, and using an afghan pattern that I have, I’m making the tote. What I’m not looking forward to is making the lining. If I can sew one, I might do that, but I really can’t sew…. I know, a lining should be simple enough, but I am challenged in this area. I found this out during HSKS 1. I really did give it my all, but I ended up having to buy a tote for my last parter. 😦 So, I may have to crochet it. YAY!(FYI:That is a sarcastic yay!)

Other News

I am working on something special for Patti. She is the wonderful artist, graphic person that made my banner and button for my Etsy store. Did you notice the petals…AWESOME! She also made me a banner for Tupperware. I love it! You can see it here. Check out her Etsy store, she has some really Cool Cats and other things. I am very great full to her and want to put something special together that she will love.

OK, I have more pics and swap news, but I cant post it all in this post now can I? Nope! So, maybe tomorrow I will post more pics. I hope you are having a great night, I will talk to you soon~

It’s What Time???!!!

Posted by sallenlouise on April 29, 2007

Ummmmm, wow, it’s 330am and where in the world did the time go? I have been adding pages to my book along section, and didn’t realize it was this late, well early! Oh well.

YAY! We received our postcard swap addies today! So they are  ready to go for Monday. That was easy. I joined a couple of other swaps, but I will update those later.

I am coming down with something yet again. THIS IS AGGRAVATING! My throat has been sore all day Friday and Saturday. The cough is just getting going. I’m so happy. SInce I’ve quit smoking, I seem to catch everything. Does that sound right to you?? I don’t think so!

Puppy news! Brutus is no longer afraid of the puppies! WOO HOO! He is a big boy now, lol! He was actually playing with them tonight. It was so cute.

Next Saturday, I will will be getting up at I will not be going to bed. I am chaperoning the band field trip to Schlitterbahn. We leave at some ungodly hour and we’ll get there at about  9am. We won’t make it home until 2am that night. I must be crazy!!! But, we will have loads of fun! I will definitely be taking a few of my WIPS along. I think I should be able to accomplish something on the bus ride.
