11  Re: The Dog Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by NyteRayn on: September 07, 2008 06:24:18 PM
Hey guys!! My kiddos Zack & Kaya are LOVING the gifts from dragonslair... especially the homemade cookies!!! Zack, who never likes ANY cookies has been begging for them all weekend!

Here are some of the other goodies...


Kaya is trying to read our excellent new dog recipe cookbook- including a few great cookies, and even a dog cake!!!


A crocheted poop bag carrier for our walks...


This is Kaya (she's a camera whore!) standing on her new crocheted bone mat...


And a better shot of the bone mat- because its just so amazing!


And Zack wanted to be the one to show off the bandannas they received...

They also got a new chain collar, and two new tennis balls... mint & peanut butter flavored!!

We loved everything- thank you so much!!!   Grin

Yay, yay, yay!! I was so excited to see my package when I got home! THANK YOU NYTERAYN! Max was ecstatic... especially about the bone-shaped pillow.  I will post pictures when I get home tonight! Smiley

I made one of the bone pillows as a test and gave it to my pups... Kaya loves to chew on it, and Zack loves to sleep on it...

14  Cute Fabric Buttons in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by NyteRayn on: August 28, 2008 04:53:21 PM
I made these for a personal swap I did recently... made with some adorable Japanese fabrics (and others) that I've been dreading cutting into for awhile now... the great thing about these is that they only take the tiniest scrap of fabric to make, so I still have plenty left!

I thought they turned out really cute... I might have to make myself some soon!  Grin

Yay! I finally got a few spare moments to post my awesome package!!!



Some AWESOME old pattern magazines from the 60's... pieces of a Care Bears pre-printed pattern (LOVE the Care Bears!!)... possibly a calendar-month themed quilt, Sherrie B, SD can you elaborate?... a fabulous stash of fabrics (I'll already cut into a couple of them!)... some random supplies, including the most adorable teeny-tiny stapler I've ever seen!!... and a pre-printed turtle stuffie pattern... YAY!

And here are a couple cool closeups of the ads in the vintage magazines- I just love flipping through these!!



"Because the littlest things upset my nerves, my doctor started me on Postum"

Thank you Sherrie B, SD!!!!!  Grin

17  Re: 1st finger knitting (weaving) projects using all ten fingers!! - scarves in Weaving: Completed Projects by NyteRayn on: August 07, 2008 05:34:31 AM
Oh wow!!! This brings back so many memories!! I used to do this when I was a kid! We used those little fabric loops... what are they called... *does some quick googling*

These things!



I used to love those!! We'd criss-cross one over our fingers like you have shown, then do a second one, and pull the first over the second, then put on a third and pull the second over the third... etc. I used to have a whole scarf made that way. I'm so nostalgic right now!

18  Re: Dog Swap sign-ups 7/11-7/21 sendouts 8/21 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by NyteRayn on: August 04, 2008 08:16:00 AM
I found a cute pattern for a dog bone pillow this weekend, and I decided to whip one up with some extra green fleece I had laying around... possibly a trial-run for a swap item?Huh  I dunno, we'll see!!!  Wink

I learned two things from this project, first that dogs don't need, use or want pillows and would much have a large chew toy.... and second that if I want to get a good photo of said pillow, (I mean large chew toy), I should probably do so before handing it over to the dog. But either way, Kaya is loving her new bone, and anything that makes her happy is just peachy with me!

20  My Craft Room in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by NyteRayn on: August 04, 2008 07:58:41 AM
I spent much of the weekend reorganizing my favorite room, my craft studio! And now that I've finished, I wanted to take a few moments to share. The photos aren't great- one of the rooms best features are the huge windows & sliding doors, which are great for crafting, but horrible lighting for photos!

This is the main wall- my sewing machine & cutting table.



A couple of spare chickens, a poppet "Lilith" and my mason jars of buttons... all color-coordinated.



My Janome Sew-Precise... since she's pretty much the most important thing in the room, I figure she deserve's her own photo!



You can see here that I have a huge "Inspiration Board" behind my machine, just a bunch of printed photos of projects I've seen and loved... some of my own, but mostly things I found online.



The room was originally an office/library- so there is no shortage of floor to ceiling bookshelves. This one is home to my craft books, patterns & magazines. I also have some ikea shelves, decoupaged with Amy Butler scrapbook paper.



A couple close-up shots of my craft library...





This is my attempt at some serious organization- separate plastic tubs for my bias tapes, notions, ribbons, elastics, scissors, clay, beads, stick-ball thingies, foam ball thingies, glues, magnets, beads, embroidery floss, doll parts, soap-making supplies, yarns, stamps, popsicle sticks... you get the idea.



And the second most important thing in my craft room- my stash!! (Or at least a large portion of it). I recently found out that cardboard comic book boards make excellent "mini-bolts" so I can keep my fabric folded and displayed neatly!



This is a recent addition- I went through my THREE huge laundry baskets of "scrap fabric" and sorted it out. I ironed the larger pieces and put them in plastic tubs by color... the smaller scraps went into ziplock baggies, also by color. It took forever, but I think it might actually encourage me to USE some of this great fabric for smaller or patchwork projects.
