Oh Smeddly, if you posted a tutorial for that skirt, I would be ever so grateful!

Battle/Challenge: September UFO Sighting
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: Green! The one on top in the picture is green, even though it doesn't look much like it in the photo. Also it's good for the environment.
Project Name: Food Wraps
Link: http://www.diynatural.com/reusable-food-wrap-plastic-alternative/
Brief Description: Fabric from my stash, pinked into squares, with beeswax ironed into it to make reusable wraps for storing food, to use in place of disposables like plastic wrap, sandwich bags, and wax paper. I bought the beeswax and pinking shears a while ago for this project but never got around to it - until now!

Battle/Challenge: September Convention
Team: Wordy
Project Name: Dice bags!
Brief Description: Perfect for taking your dice to the convention so you can stay up all night gaming, or for bringing home the mysterious 24-sided die that the Game Science guy talked you into buying in the dealers' room. I designed this bag pattern for a tabletop game-themed swap a few years ago.
Project Picture:







The blue one with skulls is for me. The other two are for some friends, who just gave me my very own copy of A Feast of Ice and Fire.

I've started 2 other projects for this month too. This is the first one I've had time to finish!

I want to join! The Summer Nerd Games were pretty much over by the time I discovered them, so I'm glad it's going to be an ongoing thing! Team Wordy for me!

In Durham, there's a Stitch N Bitch that meets on Tuesday evenings at Foster's Market (the Durham one, not the Chapel Hill one), and another group (Knit Night in Durham on Meetup.com) that has been meeting in a private craft studio on Thursday evenings but is on hold for the moment due to the organizer having a baby.

Also, be sure to check out the Scrap Exchange in Durham - it's pretty much crafting heaven. I think they hold a Stitch N Bitch too, but I have not been to it.

I received a lovely, fragrant package from gingerpeachy!

Here it all is in the box:



A bunch of scented shea butter soap! My husband also appreciates this - he loves yummy-smelling soap too! The soaps are lavender,  cedarwood pine, lime cypress, and orange tea tree.



Lavender sugar scrub (I spent time in Provence as a small child so my love of lavender is deeply ingrained), aromatherapy spray that smells like vanilla, natural deodorant, and passionfruit rose lip balm!



Wild-harvested chamomile, and marshmallow root:



Thanks Ginger!!!!!!!

My partner Gingerpeachy has received her stuff, but she is super busy with awesome life stuff right now, so I offered to post pictures of the stuff I sent.

Firstly, a lavender-scented eye pillow, because as Ginger said, you can't have too many!



Then, a few tea-infused beeswax candles (I used this tutorial: http://ru-bees.com/blogs/news/7773787-making-herbal-tea-infused-beeswax-candles). One is Earl Grey Creme, and the other is lavender hibiscus. I had never made candles before!



I also made her a neck-warmer (or bed buddy or whatever). The outer sleeve is knitted washable wool, and the inner sack is muslin filled with flax, chamomile, and peppermint, with a little lavender essential oil.



I included some cleavers that I picked from the alley behind my house, and an herbal tea blend, in weird little tins that I found at the craft store!




I received my package today, and will be posting those pictures soon.

One craft done, the rest in progress! I just need to get to the fabric store for a few things and wait for some more ____ to come in the mail! I have the last week of June off work, so I'll have plenty of time to finish things up then if needed.
