Functional Felt Swap Deadline

28 05 2008

Check out all this wonderful stuff coming out of the Functional Felt Swap. I’m so impressed with the variety and quality of the items being produced. To think I’m a co-host! It blows me away. Not only are these creative items coming out of 13 US states, but 7 countries! I’m amazed. See who made each of these items and check out more pics by clicking here. For those participating in the swap that haven’t posted a picture of their item please do so. It is incredibly fun to see it all. Don’t have and don’t want a flickr account? You could also email us any shots and we could post for you.

As for my item? I’m a bad, bad hostess. I’ve finished knitting my item and just need to throw it in the wash in the morning. At first I was thinking one day late, no biggy. But now I’ve realize that it may not dry in one day. I certainly don’t want to mail something that will mold in it’s postal box by the time it gets to the recipient. I hope they don’t mind that it’s a teeny bit late. I promise it’ll be worth it. I went overboard. (no surprise) We did get a camera today (an Olympus Stylus 1030 SW) so I can take some picks once we have some daylight tomorrow. Fingers crossed that something doesn’t go horribly awry in the washing machine.

I think it’s ok for you to be a wee bit late, after all, it’s your party! (I skid into the post office at quarter to four today after jamming the things into the box and whisking the kids out the door…) Your work in progress looked so fabulous…what patience to knit and THEN felt! (And thanks to you two for hosting!)

I want to say a big THANKYOU to Jen, I love, love, love the cake pincushion and bag, you did a wonderful job, don’t see anything wonky. Your attention to detail shows with all the pretty stitching, love the french knots, the colors are perfect, pink and green are me. Its so fun to get real mail, I have done 2 apron swaps since I signed up for this one, and have recieved one of those, my husband put up a bigger mailbox to save the carrier the trouble of having to bring packages to the porch. He is a dear man.
