My hero!

As usual I waited til the last minute to package up a swap. It was due today and since I don't drive I planned on having the hubby take it to the post office. What I didn't plan on was him waking up with a migraine this morning!!! So while he was trying to sleep it off I was quietly freaking out about having to send a swap late. The stupid part is the stuff has been sitting around finished for at least a week now(see that little pink biscornu down there?), for some reason I always procrastinate when it comes to packaging stuff up.

Anyways, I sent my partner an email telling her I'm soooo sorry for her stuff being sent late and then the hubby woke up, said he felt better and asked where that stuff was I needed mailed. He made it to the post office with time to spare and even brought me back a milkshake from McD's. My hero!!!

Then I emailed my partner again and told her to ignore my first email. She probably thinks I'm crazy now. Maybe now I'll learn to not procrastinate so much.

....probably not.

PS. I think the milkshake gave little baby boy the hiccups.

Family is dear finished

Just finished this today. A Christmas present for my brother and sister-in-law who live too far away. I really enjoyed stitching this one and can't wait to get some more Bent Creek designs.

This was stitched 2 over 2 on 28ct evenweave. My first time using non-aida fabric. I really liked it and will probably have a hard time forcing myself to go back to working on the other wips on aida. I also bought my first set of q-snaps to try out with this project and I lurve them very much!!

Sad little cupcake

This was meant for a swap but I seriously screwed up on the sewing and would be embarrassed to send it. Not sure what I'll do with him now.
At least somebody thinks he looks tasty!

Small pink biscornu

For yet another swap.

On 18count aida. Before stitching and stuffing.
A bit smaller than I was planning but I think it's cuter that way.

And now for something a little different.

Check out my Flickr page for pics of all the crafty stuff I've been doing for Swap-bot. Somewhere in there is also a bunch of pics of the custom ponies I used to make, I really wish I had the room to make them again! I've also been doing a bit of crochet and cross stitch. It's hard to find the time for it all. Hopefully very soon I'll have something good to show off.
