1  Rainbow mandala! in Crochet: Completed Projects by LadybugsAndBumblebees on: November 18, 2014 01:35:48 PM

I made this for someone who is very spiritual and I know likes mandalas.  This person has helped our family-especially our girls-a lot, so I attached items which represent things about us/our friend.  I also sewed on rainbow beads around the edges.  I'm not sure how you would display a piece like this, so I'm leaving it up to the recipient.  Wink

2  Ruffle scarf & stash! in Crochet: Completed Projects by LadybugsAndBumblebees on: November 17, 2014 12:28:05 PM

I haven't felt well lately, so I've been spending a lot of time resting in bed, looking at Craftster on DH's ipad.  I'm running out of things to read, so I went on the crochet board here and saw a post that fantasticmio did about ruffle scarves.  I tried to print out her directions, but I couldn't make it work.   Cry  But she got me inspired, so I did an internet search for directions and found some.  The red scarf is the result!  Cheesy  My first ruffle scarf (made for a friend/co-worker for the holidays).  My next one will be purple for my bff.  Roll Eyes

BTW...look at all the skeins I purchased over the summer!  The new Joann's near me keeps a lot of their clearance items in shopping carts near the entrance/check-out areas.  When I saw that the skeins were only NINETY SEVEN CENTS each, how could I resist??!!   Grin  I'm so glad I was able to figure out how to make them...what would I have done with all that yarn otherwise??!! Wink

3  Infinity scarf with Turkish yarn! in Crochet: Completed Projects by LadybugsAndBumblebees on: November 11, 2014 06:49:31 PM

My friend/co-worker brought me back orange yarn with little fluffy, colorful tufts of color in it from her trip to Turkey this past summer.  (She also brought me back some white eyelash yarn but I thought that was just a bit too much with the business of the orange yarn.  Wink)  She's been asking me what I'm going to make with it, and I figured from the beginning I'd make a scarf...the skeins were not that big (she brought me back two).  But then I looked in my yarn stash and found a ball of plain white yarn, thought of an infinity scarf a co-worker was wearing on Monday, and thought that would be what I would make.

It made my hand ache to crochet with the yarn b/c it was thick, and because I had to work around the fluffy tufts  Roll Eyes, but I really like how it came out.  I am going to wear it to work on Thursday.  I think my friend will be pleased with what I did with it.

I GOT MY PACKAGE TODAY!   Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Wheeeeee!  Roll Eyes  I am home with my DD and I was SO hoping I would receive it today!  The above is a photo of what the wrapped gifts look like (before I hide them from myself  Wink)

*sings softly to myself*  Small paper packages, tied up in strings, these are a few of my favorite things....

(I am so sorry for the crooked photo!  Tongue)

I received from the very talented anna.washinn!  I received the beautiful, intricate, brilliantly made necklace!  She sent with it a lovely, large postcard which I am going to hang in my craft room.

It was such a tease, I got the notice in my mailbox last night after work-and after the PO was closed-that I had a package to pick up the next day.  I recognized the sender's name on the notice and it was SO HARD TO WAIT TILL after work today to pick it up!

This is a belated photo of what the superbly talented THE RAGING SLOTH sent me for a personal swap that I requested with her.

I saw the sea turtle stuffie she made for gotgrey in the 'Under The Sea' swap and my eyes bugged out of my head!  Shocked<------(like that  Wink)  I HAD to have one!  Luckily, The Raging Sloth agreed to a personal swap and I am so happy she did.

The fabrics, colors, and stitches she used on the turtle are amazing...I never tire of looking at him.  BTW, his name is Milo.  Cheesy  She was also kind enough to send stickers for my DDs, a sea turtle magnet, and sea turtle charms!

8  Secret Santa swap, anyone? in New Swap Theme Ideas by LadybugsAndBumblebees on: October 05, 2014 08:19:01 AM
We've had these in the past and I know of at least two people that would be interested in joining if another one started up.  I'm thinking signups would have to be soon if we were to do this to get it done before the holidays.

How it works is that you get a Craftster's info. and you stalk them and make a package for them.  Another Craftster gets your info. and stalks you and sends you a package.  Nobody says who they have until opening day!

Please let me know what size swap you think this should be in your replies.  I am thinking a large, medium, and small-but I know that may be a lot for people this time of year.

I don't know how to post links to previous swaps, but I used the 'advanced search' button to find past Secret Santa swaps.  Just type in 'Secret Santa swaps'.

I'd be willing to organize.

This is the photo of my offering for this swap:  a "scoodie"! 

(It is being modeled by the world-wide famous 'Slothy', made for me by gotgrey.)

As you can see, it is a hood and scarf combination, made with white/turquoise/and black.  At the end of the scarf portion on both sides, there are pockets-for your hands, money, credit cards, etc..  The hood has a decorative edging, and on the underside of the scarf is the "maker's mark" label.

 Grin Grin Grin Grin  (I should go into advertising, shouldn't I?!!)

*I will modify this post to show the "extras" I want to include with this, once they are bought.*

I realized as I was getting ready for work this morning, that I had created an unintentional shrine to sea turtles in the corner of my bedroom!  Grin
(Of course it's crooked...)
Anyhow...the wall quilt on the door is an angel package item from one of the ongoing swaps awhile back, the wallet is from the most recent 'Make me a purse and wallet' swap, and then the EPIC felted item is from the talented PETSKIN!  Cheesy
