The trouble

with entering into a Buy Nothing Swap is that if something goes wrong and you only had the one of that thing then you're buggered. I am now having a last minute panic searching in my boxes to find another one....something....anything to make it all better. See you get a wonderful swap partner and swap anxiety overtakes your life when you have to send the box. LOL

And still I keep signing up for swaps, once I get this parcel out I've got this lot to start having fun with. Honestly I do actually enjoy swapping. Octopus/Squid Swap, Gnome Swap, Tim Burton Swap and I've just sent off my info for a Panda Swap. :D For now I get the fun of working out what I'm going to make, doodle time :D

Ok outstanding picture that I promised days ago.
Stuff I sent to my Owl swap partner Thunderchild.

I stencilled her a shirt, knit a snowy owl purse, made a shrinky key charm and phone charm, a two owl perler picture, a crazy sequin owl stuffie and I knit a scarf which had 3 owls on it and blocks that spelt out Twit Twoo. Phew.

Other outstanding picture.
My haul from the local charity shop.

A set of 3 hat box style boxes for £3 which I plan on decoupaging (is that the right word?)
A bag full of zips for £1 and there were 15 zips in there. Bargain.
And a black tote bag for 50p that I used when I angelled in the Punk it up Swap.
And the book for 20p :D

Snow days.

Finally we got some snow :D Not a lot but enough to keep the smalls happy and cold after playing out in it.

So my owl swap partner received and liked all her goodies. :D I wanted to share pics but for some reaso everytime I try to add a pic I getting an error on page message. :(

Shame because after forgetting all week to show you my charity shop haul I remembered tonight. Typical.
Ah well I'll go and try and prise the wee one off the WII and into bed then I can sit and do some saturday night crafting.
