1  Re: Random Swap Round 5 (signups March 2-15, 2014; sendouts May 17, 2014) in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED by lindyv321 on: April 21, 2014 10:35:43 AM
I have two kids.

Adia is 13 and a lover of all animals.  If she had her way we would have 10 cats and 10 dogs!  She is very artistic and likes to sing.  Although she is too shy to sing in front of other people!  She is actually pretty shy about everything.  Landon is 9 and is all boy.  He loves Lego's, superhero's, and Minecraft.  He is my outgoing kid.  He will show off his dance moves to anyone that will watch.  They have a love hate relationship with each other and drive me crazy with their almost constant bickering!  They are very much opposites of each other in almost everything but I know deep down they love each other and miss the other when they aren't around.

As for pets we have 3 dogs and 3 cats.  Sarge is a chi/min pin mix, Baxter is a min pin, and Minnie is a Rhodesian Ridgeback.  Minnie reminds me a bit of the Vizsla as she is hunting hound.  Although the only thing she hunts around our house is crumbs.  That dog would eat all day if she could.  Our cats are Cocoa and Cookie who are sisters and were rescue cats.  They pretty much stay on one side of the house cause they don't like the dogs.  Then we have Cupcake who was abandoned by renters in my parent's rental house. 

I am very happy with the progress I have made with this swap.  Still have lots to do before send outs though!

2  Regal Seahorse in Needlework: Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: April 21, 2014 10:07:32 AM
This is my Under the Sea themed hoop for the April hoopla along.  I got the pattern on Etsy

I used a back stitch, a chain stitch, and a few french knots to complete the project.  I LOVE the look of the chain stitch but am not as impressed with the back stitch on the sea shells...  The chain stitch is so easy if you use the cheater method that I think I will try to incorporate it into more pieces...

Tons of great stuff has been posted in the last few days!  I love all the bracelets, bouquets, pendants, and pouches.

I finished up my April hoop for the monthly hoopla along.  This months theme was Under the Sea so I stitched up this very regal seahorse.

I also made this memory wire wrap bracelet for myself

Finally I made this skull pendant for myself.  I used wooden pendant, some stickers that fit perfectly, and Diamond Glaze

My April hoop is done!  I got the pattern from KimberlyOuimet on Etsy.  It came with a ton of choices but I went with this very regal seahorse.  I don't like how the shells turned out but I like the rest of it.  I finally think I mastered the french knot with this piece!

I received a wonderful package from TerraBella01 yesterday!  She claimed me for a hoopla but included some awesome extras.  First up the hoop...

It's a PINK! elephant!  LOVE this to bits!

She also sent me an altered matchbox that is fabulous

Then some floss and bobbins.  I haven't ever used bobbins but may need to start since I know have some!

Thank you so much!  I just love everything

My sewing skills are so so but I have really wanted to work on getting better with my machine.  I have made a few bags for swaps in the past few months to practice my skills with using a pattern, measuring, cutting, then sewing.  For the first bag I used this pin and came up with this bag

Then I used this pin for a simple tote and made two bags

The second pin is very simple and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to start small!

7  Spring Embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: April 10, 2014 09:50:37 AM
I made this spring time hoopla for my partner in the Dreaming of Spring Swap.  The pattern comes from Polka and Bloom.  This pattern just made me smile and think of all kinds of fun spring things.

8  Easter Wreath in Easter by lindyv321 on: April 10, 2014 09:43:14 AM
I made this yarn wrapped wreath for my partner in the Dreaming of Spring swap.  I found the perfect skein of yarn with all these fun spring colors to use!  Nice to only have to work with one skein since I every time I touch yarn it becomes a tangled mess!

I was home with a sick son yesterday and decided I wanted to make some homemade rolls to go with dinner.  I had this recipe for copycat Texas Roadhouse rolls pinned and decided to give it a try.  They were super easy and pretty much fool proof!  The only thing I would recommend is the make the rolls smaller than I did otherwise you will have to bake them quite bit longer than what the recipe says.

I have no idea how the heck I have missed this WHOLE gallery!  My pinning finger has been busy!
I have no words for how much I LOVE the Doctor Who shirt SheepBlue made. 
I also really really want an awesome craft room sign from Jo_mama! 
The hanging bathroom organizer is genious!
The owl embroidery is just too sweet!
I LOVE all the little bags that were made by Texscrapper and I really need a birdy art quilt (jealous of jo_mama)
All the supplies that have been received are great too!
The hoopla that SheepBlue received is magnificent!  Love the black and white!

Glad you liked your shirt Anne!

I received two packages and have been bad about posting photos!  Sorry  Undecided 
I received a supply package from ActsofCraftiness.  She sent me a TON of pendant trays (YAY!!) some hoops (double YAY!!), and some beading string.

From jo_mama I received a wonderfully decorated "L" to go in my craft room.  I ADORE it!  The color is perfect for me.

Thank you so much!!!
