As long as it's close to this one so everyone's is pretty even, I guess it's okay to change it.

Its a great simple pattern TxMary thanks, we will be able to do lots with it, contrasting fabrics, adding bling, this will be fun thanks. Personally, I think we should all use the exact same pattern, same as we have done in the previous two swaps. That way they are all the same, just my NSHO coolsmiley winking

Just wanted to drop in and let you know that it's #$%@! difficult to design an ugly whatever.

That is all.

We get ya Tracy. You couldn't make anything ugly if your life depended on it. I know that for a fact. So think of this as a Fancy Christmas sweater swap. I know you can do fancy with a flair! Just can't resist the teasing.... winking

Has everyone received their pattern and their swap partner's name? I sent them all out on Saturday. If you didn't get yours, let me know and I will resend it.

My sweater is done. I am so excited about it. I had so much fun making it. I can't wait to send it out......but then again I can because I don't want to give it away. lmao

Cassie is almost done with hers too. Just needs to sew down binding.

It's not supposed to be ugly. It's supposed to be gaudy, decked out, over the top kitchy...whatever word you want to use. I personally think a lot of them are cute but probably wouldn't wear one....or I might if it got cold enough down here to wear sweaters.   Overall they are supposed to be fun.

outrageous, eye popping, the 'holy schmoley' of sweaters, garish, lurid, flashy, ostentatious, lurid, ritzy - all the words that mean fun to sum and 'ugly' to others!! I think the ugly sweater term is just adding to the fun, its a game the whole family can play

I am working on mine, but wasted most of a day because DH put my cut out pieces and the interfacing in my meds drawer. (I also looked for my favorite small fry pan, which he put under the pressure cooker.) His idea of putting away is clearly not mine. Knuppel angry

I want the pug sweater! LOL and the cat looks thrilled in her sweater. So much Christmas cheer oozes out of that one. lmao

Our dogs, surprisingly, do not have Christmas sweaters. Too hot I guess and I haven't been tempted because they won't wear them.

Definitely a BAH HUMBUG cat!! lmao

Mine is done, but not terribly gaudy. I don't do beads and such. I used to, but gave all of mine to a friend. I plan to ship it after our guild meeting later in the week.

Of course....wouldn't EVERYONE look for quilt project pieces in a medicine drawer? Men's logic defies me sometimes.

I have the tedious part done, now it's time to gaudy it up a bit.
Shocked

Gotta go to the first post and remind myself when the mailing deadline is. Next Saturday is a Get Ready For Christmas sew day. I guess so far I'm good!
