Okay, while I'm still not totally caught up, I have this short chunk of time between events, so I figured I'd pop on here and comment on the patches I've missed!
cabaute, I love those patches from goatgodess! I agree, her stitching is super neat! And, the tiny details on the patchwork pieces just bowl me over. I don't know if I could cut such small pieces so well!
Watsonc7, I was a little afraid to try making Arrested Development patches since I've never seen the show, but I like how cabute interpreted them, especially the blue one
goatgoddess, I love the Spock patch, but the Wookie patch is my favorite! And, how can your husband not know who Spock is?
smileyyogini, you sent a great set of patches to stillatthetop! I like the tree one (I love how it extends into the edge of the patch), and I like the tree/peace sign fabric patch one, too! On the third, I like how you stitched around each peace sign. Happy little patches...
GoldenSunshine, I love the patches you got from noodle-bug! I like the patchwork patch, and that owl is just too cute! But, I really love the simplicity of the water patch. And, the set you got from milkeway is equally fabulous! Another nice variety of techniques, too (I need to start a list). Smiling ice cream? Love it! And those little flowerpots are adorable!
Sharalee, that Raggedy Ann patch takes me back to childhood- I loved my Raggedy Ann doll, and I love that Craftsunderground made it round. Perfect. The matroyshka doll patch is great too, and I love the addition of the beads/French knots.
madcrafter, the Hobbit door is amazing (Craftsunderground, such great uses of a round patch!). The French knots make the perfect little flowers! I love the postcard/crown one as well. I love the collage look of the patch.
DaphadillyArt,you were spoiled by milkeway! I love the two text-based pacthes and can't believe those lestters are felt (I think) on the first one (so neatly cut!!)! The others are great, too, especially the little fox.
quaggy, great set of animal patches. I love them all, but I think that the cow one is my favorite. For some reason, photos (and realistic images) of cows just crack me up
Inselaeffchen, your patches from madcrafter are stunning (Lois, it seems as though you had nothing to worry about!)! The seahorse patch just blows me away, but I love the details on the jellyfish patch, too. I also really like the patches you sent to her. The strawberry is very cute and the purple one has a very haunting quality about it (but in a good way)!
noodle-bug, the minion patch from GoldenSunshine is adorable, and I love the cheeriness of the daisy, and the printed one serves to further emphasize my need to try out that technique! And, the set from quaggy is also fabulous- the one with the heart charms is particularly striking!
I definitely need to start a list of techniques that can be used to make patches (and maybe link to examples). Maybe I'll do that at the start of the next round! And, here's the patch that I made for roler in a personal swap (she made me the water molecule patch at the top of the gallery):
