11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: The dead are cold..... on: December 13, 2014 11:12:48 AM
That is really awesome!  Its too hot for scarves here, but I really need to make that for my hubby.  He could hand it like a banner in his office.   If the pattern available anywhere else?  The facebook link tells me the content is unavailable.  Odd.
12  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Rd. 10 Gallery on: December 13, 2014 08:29:31 AM
I did two partners in this swap.  So, now its time to post photos from  sweetyetevil.  Receiving this, today really lifted my spirits, which needed some lifting this week.  Anyways....I'm waiting to open the gifts on Christmas but, I would love to share pictures of everything wrapped.  Beth, which item was the one you finished that you were the most proud about?  I want to save that one til last to open on Christmas morning.  So it can be the grand finale.  Cheesy
  
My stocking and a little sock monkey.  I adore pugs.  So, as soon as I saw the stocking I couldn't help but smile.  The pugs on the fabric looks just like my darling little Buddha.  And I also love sock monkeys so thought the little one was adorable.  Buddha loves them too and tried to steal the little monkey.  Smiley  I think I might have to give it to him.  His old monkey toy is so old...its loosing its fur.  And he sucks on it until he falls asleep, so I know he will love this new little monkey.  


Now a group shot of the presents.  That Sesame Street paper had me cracking up.  And I am wondering what is wrapped in the bubble wrap.

Oh, handmade socks!  Love them!  I bet that stocking took forever to make with all that weaving.  Your partner must of been busy for hours knitting those socks and weaving that stocking.

I agree, lindy...some of the swappers have wonderful restraint...I probably would have opened everything before I even had my coat off! Grin


I can't speak for the other waiting to open at Christmas.  But, for me, I am the one who does the stockings in our house. So, by saving my stocking for Christmas, it gives me a little surprize.   Cheesy  And how fun to have a stocking with surprizes on Christmas morning!  My parents never did stockings.  So, I think thats why I enjoy the stocking so much as an adult.

Oh my!  I love that furry little Yeti!  I sooooo want one now!  I'll be putting faux fur fabric on my xmas list.  I must make one!

Well, I'm already claiming lydiaharper for some supplies, so why not add a crafted item to the package I'll be sending!

I claim lydiaharper for Day of the Dead/Sugar skull themed art work

2nd claim this round.  0 sent.  0 recieved.

BRB with list!

Hey there.  I live in the U.S. with my dear hubby, sweet kiddo and my pug.  Allergies are in our house, but shouldnt affect anything sent to us because the allergies are mostly dust, grass, pollen, mold and other outside things.  We do have a cat allergy in the house and sinus issues though, so please no strong smoke smells.  Cat friendly homes can claim us, just please try to limit the cats contact with the items.

-Scrabble Tile Pillows that spell LOVE.  Im a little picky about these.  I had some that were painted, the paint cracked.  So I would like the Letters to be sewn on the pillows using black felt.  Just the regular machine washable and dryable felt though.  And you dont have to stuff them though, just make them like pillow cases.  The backs can be the pocket fold kind or a zipper closer.

I am just happy to get cards...a lot of people no longer send them because everyone is in touch via social media...I love getting cards and hanging them up in my foyer for all to see...I used to be able to fill a whole wall, but now it is just one small closet door... Sad

I know exactly what you mean.  I use to send cards to all my close family, parents, siblings, aunt, uncles, great aunts/uncles and a couple cousins. Then send them to the inlaw side of the family uncles, aunts ect.  And you know what, I would get maybe 7 in return.  I remember our first Christmas at our new address. I sent out a ton of cards along with a annual christmas letter.  You know, so everyone had our new address and knew how we were doing.  I bet we received maybe 5 cards that year too.  I refuse to do the whole social media thing.  Facebook, twitter all that.  Nope, aint doing it.  I will do email to my mom and my childhood friend.  But thats it.

My cards for the card exchange might not make it out by Christmas, but they will go out.

I actually made mine via snapfish's website.  So they are made by me, I picked the backgrounds, I took the pictures & edited them on a photo program, then added them to online card, picked colors for the actual card.  But, then snapfish printed it all.  I hope that counts for handmade.  I was thinking some might be making them via-cutting out papers, stamping, drawing on blank cards.  But since Im not a paper crafter I make mine via snapfish every year.
