1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Geezers Alive and Kicking, Round 6 - gallery on: May 15, 2015 08:38:12 PM
Oh my goodness-that afghan.  I too am a crocheter, so I am just thinking about all the time and different stitches that went into making that.  I know I would of spent hours counting my stitches to make sure I had the correct stitch count at the end of every row.  Is the pattern on Ravelry?  I dont know if I would have the patience to make one, but if i had the pattern I would surely give it a try.

What a neat mug rug.  And Ruby is simply adorable!  I use to dog sit many years ago for my father-in-law.  He had a Jack Russel.  Oh mercy!  He was a cute little thing, but he didn't have proper training and I had my hands full watching him. I definently prefer the laid back personality of my pug.  LOL. 

And...I'm doing my check in.  I'm currently working on my first claim this round.  I am half done.  Smiley

Hey there.  I live the United States with my hubby, kiddo and pug.  The hubs has sinus issues and allergies, so please no strong smoke smells.  Most of his other allerges include grass, pollen, dust, and other things that wont effect this swap.  Except for his cat allergy, but just as long as your kitty doesnt rub all over the item and you dont send a huge ball of cat hair, then Ill just wipe the item or wash it. 

Im a geek at heart with some nerd and whole lotta goofy mixed in.  I love Harry Potter, Tattoos, Pugs, retro 1950s, video games, pirates, cowboy boots and books.  My favorite crafts are knitting and crochet.  But I do the occasionally sewing project, embroidery hoopla, book folding and well.you get the picture.  LOL.  Color combos I like are red/white/black.  Heather grey.  Tan/chocolate brown.  Black.  Teal.  I dont like pastel, neon, orange or yellow colors.  And themes I dont like are baby, creepy, crude or adult. 


Crafty goodness:

~Pug Silhouette pillows cases for our couch pillows.  I would love 4 but, they dont have to all be the same claim.  In any of the following colors black, tan, chocolate brown, white.  Would be extra cute if a red fabric heart silhouette was sew on the pugs chest.  I need the silhouettes in fabric or washable felt.  No paints please.  Something like this:

Supply wishes:  all supply claims are great!

~quilting cotton with koi on it

~quilting cotton with tattoo theme

~Lion Brand Wool ease Thick & Quick yarn.  Or similar yarn thats #6 super bulky.  I am making bulky cable knit blankets.  Each panel takes 2 skeins so, I need at least 2 skeins of the same color.  The more the better though.  Any colors.  But heather greys, creams, tans and chocolate colors would be my first choice in colors. 

~star wars fabric. Already received in previous round-but more appreciated.

~Pug fabric. Like this https://www.etsy.com/listing/181639948/packed-pug-pups-on-black-pure-cotton?ref=sr_gallery_20&ga_search_query=pug&ga_page=3&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery Or perhaps like this https://www.etsy.com/listing/213339584/pugs-kisses-from-michael-miller?ref=sr_gallery_38&ga_search_query=pug&ga_page=3&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery

~Harry Potter edition yarns by Opal. 

~Those washable markers that quilters use

~One of those clear acrylic quilting square template things.  You know, the ones quilters trace around.  I can not cut a proper square and I suspect this tool would help.  LOL.

~A fabric jelly roll.  Reds/blacks/whites especially.  But any colors that are good quilting cotton would be fine too.  Just as long as the fabric isnt that skimpy almost see through kind. 

~Sock yarns.  Any brand, any color.  Especially any self striping like Kroy FX or other similar ones.

~all shades of grey super bulky yarns.

~white super bulky yarn.

~gift card to Ravelry

~faux fur fabric.  yd or more.  I will be making some lion mane hats for some dogs.  I had some faux fur, but the back side was rough and stiff and not very soft.  Id like some of the faux fur that the back feels soft against your skin.  Side note-any color of faux fur would be great-because I can use odd ball colors for monster stuffies.

~zoomigurumi books

~washi tapes.

Fun extras:

~Mojito Elephant ear bulbs or sprouts.  They are the ones with black/green marble-ish look to the leaves.  I am having a heck of a time finding them here.

~Some of those Tattoo Coloring  books I have seen on Amazon.

Thanks for that freezer paper info. ladies.  Its amazing what you learn on Craftster, isnt it?  Funny you made that comment though edelC.  I use ziplock freezer bags and almost always forget about labeling them.  Im trying to remember, but I never do.


I also sent in my questionaire for round 114.  This is such a laid back and easy swap.  And super fun too.

And now for something completely different: My parents came home from a trip to the US today, and they brought me a roll of freezer paper. Because I asked for it. 33 yards, I wasn't expecting that much! Now I don't have to decide what to make stencils of, I can just start drawing and cutting! Or I could, if there wasn't some beading, sleeping, and reading planned first. Hmmm...

I have read that from others about some countries not having freezer paper.  I know that us craftsters use it for stencils, but its made for using in the freezer.  My question is, and this might seem silly.  But, what do you and people in countries without freezer paper use in the freezer instead?  And if you don't have freezer paper, what do you usually use for stencils instead?  I am thinking I need to go out and buy a bunch of the stuff and have on stock to send to those who live in countries with out it, as it is so easy to buy here.

I'm so glad you like the sloths.  My pug kept trying to steal the baby one.  LOL.  He has a obession with crochet amigurumi.  Every time I make one, he assumes it is for him.   Grin
