Thanks for posting another photo of the owl quilt, quaggy. The colours really are brilliant!

Wow, I love that dress-up Troll. What an utterly brilliant idea!

I just received TWO fabric art journal pages from pioneer9. Now, I know we were only supposed to send one page to each partner, but there's an explanation (of course).

You see, she embroidered the tree (r) to put on the twig background fabric (l), but when they were put together, they just didn't go. So there was nothing else for it but to make another background for the tree and another patch for the twig fabric. What's a crafter to do? Cheesy

I'm so glad this happened, because I got two great pages and I love them both. The embroidered tree is beautiful and that quote is perfect - I've always thought it was someone like John Muir or Thoreau, so I was surprised to look it up just now and find it was Picasso who said it! And the twig fabric is really terrific - I'm lucky I haven't found it for sale here, or I would buy the whole bolt.

Oh, and I also got a lovely card with a photo of the immortal Walt Whitman. Extra thanks for that!

So glad to have you back with us, Lynda! And a great package you received.

Frosty, will you post a photo of your Angel package all together when the last bits have arrived?

Wow, I went away for a few days and the Gallery exploded with scrappiness! Cheesy

So much great stuff here it's impossible to name favourites, but my jaw dropped in amazement when I saw that handful of felt snippets that became the adorable elephant. RaraAvis, you simply must put up a post about this on either the Felting or Recycling, Reusing & Recrafting boards! I had no idea you could felt together scraps like this into solid pieces. And that you used a mixture of roving and more scraps for the body is brilliant. Tell us more!

I've just sent my second page today, so I don't need the extension for them, but I haven't even started on a page for myself yet, so it's nice to still be legit for that. And I think I'm going to have to gather up my pages and think about binding, because I just received TWO pages from pioneer9! Photos up in the new gallery ASAP.

It looks great just as it is - wouldn't want it any other way!

Sorry I dropped off for a few days and missed this. Yes, my pages are 6" x 4" with the binding on the 6" side (although I have one or two the other way).

Finishing and sending tomorrow.

This would be brilliant enough even if it wasn't so ridiculously TINY! People who haven't tried old-fashioned newspaper-and-paste papier mache may not realize how difficult it can be to make it do what you want. And I can't imagine what it must be like on such a small scale! My crafter hat is officially doffed to you for this (and so much more).

I'm 80% through one my items for P_E_S_T; looking good so far. The other will be either large and spectacular (but more work) or medium and less work. I have to do a bit of scrap-layout tonight to decide which it's going to be. Not that I'm worried I might not have enough scraps - that'll never be a problem - but can I find enough that'll go well together for this without having to move furniture to get at other boxes of fabric. I just don't feel up to that this week!

I love the birdies, but also the little boat!

What? I missed that... oh, there it is! That's awfully cute. But the mushroom fabric is my favourite. Put a scrap of that aside for the next time you and I are partnered in a swap, would you?  Cheesy
