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.

I have finally hit an idea that I can't get out of my head - that's the sign I need that it is 'the one'. Now I have to gather together everything I need to make it (40% already sorted).

May need to make 2 as I want one too!

Finally moving along on mine -- I figure I have about 10 more days, so I should be fine <huge sigh of relief>. That said, I keep thinking of ways it could be better...

It's nearly done! I have one final bit to add (which only arrived in today's post) and then all I need to do is wrap, pack and post. Feeling very smug considering it took me soooooo long to decide and then I had to learn (a bit) about a whole new craft to make it!

I've got the easy bit of mine done - although the amount of whinging I've done on here you wouldn't think it was simple! Anyway, next stage, got to wing it a bit but once I've got it right I'll know.

I succeeded, despite feeling like crashing earlier and going to bed at 8pm (when is this baby going to stop making me exhausted in the evening and then wake me up repatedly before the crack of dawn? Argh)I was determined to finish it today so I can feel like I've achieved something positive this week thats for me not 'work'. It came out even better (though totally different) to my first imaginings, just panicking now that recipient may not like it. Her answers whilst probably very exact from her point of view muddled me no end. I have a very skewed idea of different styles, comes of growing up in a world where funky, gothic, folksy etc were all just normal so I have no idea what other people mean by them!

Well the good news is I've started and finished my swop gift in one sitting. The bad news is I have just re-read swappee's likes and it features three of the things she doesn't like! How did I miss that? Well at least there's just under a fortnight to go :oops:

Done! After a bit of a mad panic as realised that if I went into labour I'd struggle to get any crafting done for a few days and that therefore 10-ish days to go wasn't really 10 days crafting time....
