2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my first shawl, in the loo, after mamma mia!! classy.... on: August 19, 2008 01:18:22 PM
pretty much what it says on the tin...my first shawl, luna moth, which i absolutely love

i HATE having my piccie taken, my daughter took a pic of the back of the shawl (in the cinema toilets, after mamma mia this afternoon, we are posh like that) then sneaked this one too - and i dont hate it tooooo much

obviously my hair colour is totally natural...





amd totally addicted now and cast on for a different shawl as soon as i had this one blocking
(it does come to a proper point at the bottom, i had been sitting on it for the past 2 hours!)
3  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / A myths and legends swap! Marvellous! Sign ups until 8th Aug, send out 28th Aug on: July 25, 2008 01:09:48 PM
Isnt it fabulous! A swap about myths, legends, mythology, how have you managed without!
Oh you know you want to.....from the more obvious Greek mythology, through Arthurian legends, celtic myths,sea serpents to urban legend - use your imaginations!

One large, one medium, two smalls - so quite a large swap but hopefully not overpoweringly so.

PLEASE only sign up if you meet the requirements - and if you are committed to taking part properly, ie good friendly contact with your partner and sending out - in other words, do not let any of these lovely people down, flakers are not welcome(sorry about this, but I have seen a couple of really lovely swappers let down quite badly by people who had no intention of sending out. I also reserve the right to disallow people with very poor feedback). Let's make this another friendly, cheerful swap with the usual crafster mix of amazingly talented, friendly people!


Signups from today until 8th August - please note I am away on holiday, paddling in the chilly North Yorkshire coast, from 29th July until 3rd August. Send outs 28th August, for no other reason than that sounds a nice enough date.

Welcome one and all!

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / It's not perfect, but I like it! (a bit like life, really....) on: June 14, 2008 08:59:03 AM
Another fairytale & folklore swap wotsit that I made & didnt get round to posting...this is due to extreme old age (& forgetfulness) (& generally being a twit)

Anyway...nothing amazing, I am out of practise with my paints, but i quite like it...my daughter said it reminds her of me! (oh i wish i had ever looked that cute!)

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fairy door. It's a door. For a fairy! on: June 14, 2008 08:54:53 AM
OK, its a door - so i thought home sweet home? No idea where to post it otherwise!

I made this for the recent fairy tales & folklore swap, the first time i have made anything like this ever, this was the 2nd try (air bubbles in the first one), & I am pretty pleased with it! (its about 4 inches high, back & base are covered in green felt)

8  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Fairytale angel needed please!! FOUND thank you on: June 02, 2008 12:50:25 PM
** this might not be in the right place, but i put the other version in the angel archive, which also seemed the wrong place! please move this if needed, thank you!


Hi - I appear to have a flaker in this swap, so after many messages (no replies), very patient partner waiting & waiting (no parcel) - here is my request!

Could one of you lovely people out there PLEASE be an angel for this swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=227863.0 - it is quite a large swap (1 large, 2 medium & 3 small) so please be aware that this will eat into your 'spare' time quite a bit

Links to the gallery are on the first page of the fairy thread - obviously all involved would be very very grateful!

many thanks

10  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / The Mini Me Swap! sign ups 1st - 14th June, send outs 7th July CLOSED! on: June 01, 2008 02:34:06 PM
Noooo, not THAT sort of mini me!

A much requested mini swap, all about me! (no, not about me - about you!)

It's simple (honestly it is) - make 2 items which reflect something about you - this can be where you live, where you used to live, what you like doing, your family, friends, things that matter to you, things that make you happy...get the idea? Obviously these will also need to be based around the likes / dislikes of your partner (so if I was going to make something to reflect my love of pink, & my partner HATES pink, I would have to rethink!)

One small, one large, hence a fairly quick turnaround - plus a photo / postcard of something to do with you (does NOT have to be of you) & a tiny treat you would buy yourself (maximum 50p / $1)

** the general idea is that this will be a relaxed, stress free swap, & if you go for something lightweight it should open up overseas posting to more people (I know overseas postage can be terribly expensive with larger swaps)
