1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R2- Gallery! on: August 21, 2014 11:48:50 AM
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 Smiley


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 Smiley


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):

I did love putting that pom-pom on the hat- it definitely completed it Smiley And, I'm really glad I added the beads (that was the patch where I used a floss that was too light) because I think it looks way better than what my original plan was!

Prepare to be jealous...

I got the most fantastic package from Trekky yesterday! If she didn't live so far away, I would drive to her house and hug her, I love it so much (and, I'm not usually a hugger Smiley ).

First, I got a bunch of fabulous extras: Tea (in the most adorable tins!), chocolate, and a bar of tablet (it's like fudge). Plus, a lovely postcard from Scotland (I'm 1/4 Scottish, so I really want to visit someday!).




Next, she sent two Teesha Moore-style science themed patches for my collection.

DNA:



Erlenmeyer flask:




And, finally, A KNITTED FROG DISSECTION!!



Yes, as much as I love frogs, this has been an item I have coveted since I first laid eyes on one. But, I can't knit, and it just wouldn't look good in crochet. I am going to pick up a shadowbox and then I am going to proudly display it on the wall behind my desk.

Seriously... like a kid at Christmas when I opened that frog up. Love, love, love!

Thank you so much Trekky!

I received a fantastic package from Calabaza yesterday! We also agreed to swap extras Smiley

First, the group shot:



The official items are: the small zipper pouch (small item), the TM patch (the medium and the card combined- the card was pinned to the back, and the patch took way longer than she expected!), and the supply kit for making TM patches (2 FQs, pearl cotton, and polyfil).

The extras are the other two zipper pouches. The pouches are really cool because they A) Stand open on their own, B) Show the life cycle of a sunflower (seed, shoot, flower) and C) They NEST INSIDE EACH OTHER! Wink I love them! And, I think I'm going to use them for carrying around my TM patch supplies Grin

And, here's a close-up shot of the TM patch (81 on the Periodic Table is Thallium):

The stitching is so neat! It looks like she did couching, using clear thread. The stitches on the back are nearly invisible! It's a great addition to my collection!

Thanks so much, Calabaza!

I received the most amazing package from Trekky today! I'll be posting pictures tomorrow... and just I realized I haven't seen the gallery, yet, I don't think...

Everyone has sent! Hooray! So now, we just have to wait for the last of the packages to land on their respective doorsteps, and we'll be all done with another fabulous round!

Tomorrow morning, I'll be back to comment on things and update any feedback, if I need to! Thanks for being such a great group of swappers!

I'm waiting for some paint to dry on my last official patch and then I can do the last bit of stitching. Then, I can pack them up and head to the PO. Finally Smiley

Once I get caught up on swaps, I can get back to my list of projects for the games and also tackle my research project.

Mr. Toast had an adventure on Monday, and I'm trying to figure out what else I can squeeze in before school starts, and before I start his scrapbook!

Cheesy what a cute/scary hat

I agree! I guess as long as it doesn't freak out the baby, it's perfect!
