1  Re: Be AWESOME (Redux) GALLERY! (Sendout March 23) in The Swap Gallery by sheepBlue on: March 25, 2015 05:01:03 PM
cranky pants is genius! I'm totally intimidated by any mechinized crafts so MistressT - you win!

the junker jane dolls are so rustically beautiful! I love that sort of stitching and the story that goes along with is perfect for these characters  Smiley

the muse wands are beautiful! I love the eyes at the top!

So I received my package today from sloth003 and I can honestly say I was speechless. It is the most epic, most insane, most......bllahhhalfakdjfaljfds crazy swap thing I've ever gotten. I am not worthy.

sloth is one of the reigning quilting royalty around here and this can only further cement her TOTAL DOMINATION!

A FREAKING QUEEN SIZED QUILT! Not only that but its inspired by an awesome piece of art I had pinned (credit to etsy artist whiteoctopus for the original art inspiration) which I love because it's geometric and fractal-ly and has octopus tentacles...I could go on  Grin

sloth said that I had mentioned an old crazy quilt my mom made that I loved, when growing up, and subtly did that with this quilt as well using a tremendous amount of different fabrics. I am in love! I'm a scrappy person at heart and this makes me happy.

Also, I know it's made to fit my bed, but I don't know that I can bear to sleep with this. This is a thing that should be hung on a wall to be admired and petted and shown off. Me and my bf are starting to look for a house for the first time and I think vaulted ceilings have just been added to my must have list so that I can hang this up properly to show off!

sloth, I have loved getting to know you and am so honored that you made this epic piece of art for me. It will be treasured for a very very long time to come. Who knows, maybe if I ever have kids, this will end up being the crazy quilt that they grow up with that their mom said was made by a mad genius who had little regard for her own sanity but epic talent coming out of her pinky fingers  Wink You rock lady.

P.S. This pictures so don't do justice to this quilt. sloth if you have better pictures please please post them. Or at least give this treasure it's own post!

All that food looks so good. I should really get better at cooking new things but after working, being so tired, its a bit daunting to think of trying something new. Lindy you're an inspiration!

I made a cowl/wrap for sloth in the Awesome swap, using the rather tricky broomstick lace stitch. It turned out beautifully I think  Smiley Now I want to make another one for myself! When I have some free time.

Picture provided by sloth - thanks.

Ack! My humble apologies. The last week has gotten away from me and I fell behind in my commenting.

artsycandice - Love all the different things you incorporated into the cuff you made petskin! Any chance for a close up picture? The color is fantastic too.

LeapFeetFirst - Whoa woman, you went spoil crazy! I love the tassels and even more so because they were done with handspun. The colors are beautiful and I know it compliments Abbeeroad's personal style so well! The paper beads are sooooo well made. I've tried my hand at them before and couldn't make anything nearly that nice looking. Great job!

bookstorebabe - the cuff looks really clean and well done! The leaf necklace is my fave of the two though - you were really able to incorporate and weave the fiber and metal elements together so well.

jenleahlynn - the pieces you sent were great, but I am absolutely in love with the way you did the cording for the tree necklace. It looks like a combination of yarn and chain? The two big beads near the end compliment it really well too.

sonjaboo - Love the wrap necklace!! I have one of my own and love it to pieces....I feel like I may need to make some more with fabric this time. I especially love how the fray effect on the fabric gives the necklace a more feathery look.

stellato_escuro - the stitched bib necklace you made is great! The colors and patterns all go together so well.

petskin - Love the piece you did for artsycandice! The use of felting and woven floss goes so well together.

I just received from petskin yesterday and got a one-of-a-kind statement piece in colors that are my fave. Its a combination of crochet, felting, and stitching, and I'm in love with the texture in the center of it most of all.

A better close up of the pendant

Thank you so much for being an awesome partner  Grin

I received a fantastic card from allegrae a few days ago for my "sriracha" theme. I love the stuff so much hehe. It is mixed media and I love all the layers  Cheesy

Allegrae - in regard to your note about the potential shut down of the Huy Fong Foods factory, I did read about it, and promptly stocked up on a ton of bottles just in case supply became sparse.  Cheesy I'm glad it hasn't but I'm still working my way through those bottles lol.

My final ATC has been received. Something a little different, a close up scene in a window. The theme was "turquoise" so I tried to incorporate as much of it as I could without being overwhelming.

I'm working on a scene in a closet now...a bit bigger scale than the ATCs but not by much. I never realized how difficult it is to have a good composition with a closet where things are naturally crowded and obscured.

Beautiful hoops, stuffies, prayer flags, and wood carvings! Perhaps the promise of spring is putting a pep in everyone's crafty step  Cheesy
