Before we begin the nitty gritty I Spy discussion, I must first say that today is the best day of my entire life so far.
Okay, that’s pretty dramatic. But it’s a really, really happy crafterhours day, because ADRIANNA WILL BE AT MY HOUSE IN JUST A FEW HOURS! We are pretty darn excited to get together. And… well.. we don’t know what to expect from the kids. Reuniting the four children after six months of only seeing each other on Skype and all sorts of developmental leaps and bounds promises to make for a fun few days, right? We’re hoping SOMETHING crafty will happen, after all, they have to go to bed eventually, right? A full report will be posted, I assure you.
Until then, I’ll attempt to entertain you with I Spy excitement. If you have no interest in I Spy fabric projects or swaps or Spoonflower or anything related to any of the above, my sincerest apologies. Please skip right on ahead to whatever is next in your reader queue and make a mental note that crafterhours has failed you today.
In the middle of July I found myself quarantined in a hotel suite. My husband and older daughter were visiting friends and running errands while I enjoyed the blissful quiet… in-between the intermittent feverish shrieks of pain emitted by my younger daughter. What began as a cold had become more sinister and we had a few days of snuggling and sleeping and slow healing that allowed me some quality time with my computer and a few brain cells.
There were other challenges along the way. None insurmountable, just those that cause delays for everyone so patiently waiting. But now that the packages are out of my hands, I’m getting messages that are so great to find in my inbox that say “I just got my squares!”
And now? We wait. We create. We share. We see what others are creating and sharing. I’m as mushy as a forgotten overripe banana on a sunny windowsill just thinking about how cool it will be to see what’s produced with it. And there’s a Flickr pool waiting for uploads. Carolina was so excited she made a pincushion from her scraps!
Now that you’ve read through allllll of that discussion, really, truly, I’ve saved the best for last. Here’s a teeny tiny look at what the swappers got:
And lots more. Lots, lots, lots more. So this is it for posts about swap mechanics. From this day forward, only posts about what we’re MAKING with Spoonflower I Spies! I promise!
Unless Adrianna hosts a swap?
