MDS progress reports

Because BLW isn't just for lentil-weavers. Some of us like to piddle about with bits of felt and sticky-backed plastic as well.

Oh boo. Got mine out to post it having finished it a while ago. I was really pleased with it, but now I'm not sure I like it at all. Oh well, too late now.

I've given up for tonight, I'll have to try again tomorrow. I was hoping to get it in the post tomorrow, but not sure that's going to happen now :(

Well, I've finished. Not entirely happy (looked better in my head!) but it's fine, and I hope my recipient will appreciate the sentiment and work that went into it, even if the finished product is a little....erm....rustic :D.

Actually, scrap that, I'm unpicking and redoing a bit.

I'm done. I'm not as confident as I'd like to be, but I think I'd be happy to receive it. So tomorrow I'm off to buy an envelope and get it into the post!

None of the stuff I've sent has ever been posted on Flickr but I'm not sure I'm going to get a chance to get a photo in daylight.

Not even started yet. Not even made a decision yet. Although I think I know what bits of stash I'll be using...maybe I should take some pattern books to bed...

So tempted to open mine (the package itself smells gorgeous!), but the guilt of not having mine done yet is stopping me.

Comedy crafting moment! Earlier this evening I lost a lovely button that I was planning to use and was quite cross about it. Looked everywhere but couldn't find it so I found a substitute, finished everything, put all my crafty stuff away. Have now found the button...it had dropped into my slipper!!

Are we supposed to take pictures before we send?

I did not take piccies - I think from past swaps, it is the recipient who tended to take pics and post in flickr?
Mine is sent, and very much hoped it is liked - bit tricky to work out what to make, so made more than 1 thing in the hope that at least one bit is liked, fingers crossed!

I took a pic of half of mine but also assumed the recipient would post pics otherwise it would give the game away!!

Well, mine's finished. I had to change what I was going to do slightly, but I'm still pretty happy with it. I hope my swappee likes it! I'm going to post it on my way to pick Dilly up from preschool this afternoon.

I thought mine had arrived this morning, the posen brought me a parcel from RTR, then I remembered she was sending me back something I'd lent her!!

I tend to take pictures of things I've completed, but obviously I wouldn't publish this one anywhere to avoid spoiling the surprise.
