If procrastination were a graded subject I would get Outstanding!

What is it about me that keeps me from just finishing up a project. My poor poor swap buddy, who is patiently awaiting their kit I am sure. I just have to finish up the darn bag. The strap and pocket need to be sewn on and then felt the whole thing and it would be done.

I'm the same way about sewing buttons onto sweaters as well. Of course I could be doing that rather than sitting at my computer... but this is filling my weekly post requirement... yes that's the reason...

I Have A New Pal

Well it seems that my originally assigned swap pal had to drop out, so the headmistress has assigned me someone new. She's already contacted me and she seems like a lovely girl. I'm glad to have someone who will be here to the end. I think I would have been very sad if I wound up not receiving a swap package.

My swap kit is coming along nicely. I sent my assigned girl an owl to let her know I'm still around and haven't forgotten her. The bag is coming along quite nicely. All that is left is the strap. I put together a fun selection of sock patterns. Also have some special colored sock yarn that I will be picking up this weekend. All that is left are the needles and stitch markers, then a few extra giftie items to go with it all.

I don't see the deadline as being a problem. So I'm very pleased with it all so far. Well I think I should get started on the bag strap... and we have a homework assignment of Fleur Delacroix as well that I've not even begun. So much to do, so little time!

Weekly Post

It's been quite a busy week and I just realized I didn't post this week. I hope I'm on time for the Saturday deadline.

Well my bag for the swap is coming along nicely. I just have to do the edging and the strap then felt it. I printed out a nice collection of sock patterns tat I downloaded and have put them all in a binder, it looks very nice.

I went to a LYS today that is closing and had everything 30% off. Unfortunately there was nothing I could use for the swap, so I'll be going to other stores for those items.

That's all for this week....
