She just had a few questions about some supplies I use and then we got to talking about the Christmas in July swap. I always second guess myself when I get my swap stuff together. Will they like it? Am I using the right colors? Did I buy the right gifties? (yes, I know sis, I over think it) I want my swap partner to be pleased. I want her to like everything. Impossible? Maybe, but I will die trying...
So we start talking back and forth and of course I start telling her that I made this, I made that, I bought this, I bought that...
Um....Nancy.... two things are to be handmade and both are to be Christmas related. And they are to be in a Christmas related package, like a stocking or a bag or something.
I have NOTHING Christmas related. NOTHING!!!! I guess planning to wrap all these goodies in Christmas wrap wasn't gonna cut it. I do know what the outside package will be and have the Christmas fabric ready to go. BUT, now I have all these cute things and nothing is Christmas related.
So with one phone call... I was swap-deflated and am back to the drawing board.
Here is a sneak peak of what my swap partner will NOT get...
The good news is that I really like this so it will be nice to be able to keep it.
Today I must, must, must write the guild newsletter and get it printed and ready for Monday. I must get off the computer and stay out of the sewing room and turn off The View and get'er done...
off to search my blogs for tutes to see what I can make from Christmas fabric that will fit
