11  Re: The Pick-n-Choose Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by sonjabegonia on: October 10, 2008 10:15:11 AM
At long last, I'm posting all of the lovely goodies I received from digital misfit.  Between being sick and swamped at work, I've been woefully negligent on my picture-taking/posting :-(.

My five themes (I think, it's all a bit fuzzy):
1.  shoes
2.  India
3.  wildflowers
4.  mushrooms
5.  pop art

Group shot:


A beautiful painted wooden box to represent India and to add to my wooden box collection:



Shoes!  Gorgeous shoe ornaments -- you should see the detail up close -- and a shoe painting (glittered/metallic on black -- very elegant):


A pop art headband, wildflower barrettes, and a mushroom key chain.  I've worn the headband 3 times now and received compliments every time.  The barrettes are so cute and the key chain has brighted up my house keys:



Finally, an argyle purse with a mushroom closure and such a pretty purple lining.   This is the perfect fall bag.  I can't wait to use it!


Everything is so great - I love it all!  Thanks!

Here's all of the great items that came out of my yarn ball from lechaton.  I received quite a while ago, but am just getting around to posting the pics.

Everything was wonderful!

The yarn ball and pattern:


Group shot of everything that was in the ball:


Close up of crafted items, including bookmarks, row counter, and really cute button and beaded stitch markers:



The cutest stitch markers with sayings like "knit", "purl", "k2tog":


And, finally, my very own bracelet row counter!  I'm no longer jealous of the other person in this swap who received one :-)



Everything was so great.  Thanks so much!!

Here's the latest design on sew~amy's bird/sewing-themed tea towel:



and the entire towel:



The two birds came from a Dover Indian design book and the butterfly is from a Dover Japanese design book.  The thread and needles are additions from me to tie them into the sewing theme. 

It's off to Katchoo1 for the final design!

Here's the latest fairy on ~Glenda's fairy/gnome-themed tea towel



And the entire tea towel to date



My addition is another Dover coloring/design book-inspired design.  The wings are in satin stitch, and her hair/adornments are french knots.  I can't quite decide about what her expression says about her -- proud? full of mischief?

Here's the latest on the colorful chicken and rooster tea towel: 



And the entire towel:



I used an image out of a Dover Coloring book.  It's one of the Chinese-inspired designs, with a rooster and a chicken standing along a brook of running water and different grasses.  I really like the way it turned out, but it was a bit of a larger project than I had originally intended!  The rooster's wings kept on getting more and more elaborate and I felt that the brook had to be filled in rather than a simple outline.  Overall, this was a lot of fun because I was able to use quite a few different stitches.

Here's the art deco-inspired tree I stitched on GatsbyGirl's pillow top.  I'm sending it off to the next stitcher tomorrow morning.

I used a variety of stitches and thread counts to give some texture to the swirls that depict leaves.  The variations in color on the tree trunk were made by combining two thread colors in the needle.  I think it looks like wood, so am pleased.

Here's my awesome package from Knichole!



Something unusual is a vintage how-to book for different crafts like knitting, crocheting, embroidery, etc.  I love it! 

Something local is a postcard which helps me place Knichole in the real worlds.

There are also several skeins of yarn -- cotton and chenille.  A couple of the skeins look vintage, which will be a lot of fun to work with in the future. 



Something flexible is this very handy tote bag. 



I love, love love this star afghan for something blue.  This is amazing!  I will use this often. 



Something starting with the letter C are crocheted cloths.  The patterns are so nice on both of them. 



Finally, a cute bear with a skirt made of yellow flowers.  Adorable!

Thank you, thank you, thank you -- all are wonderful.

18  Rose tote bag in Needlework: Completed Projects by sonjabegonia on: August 26, 2008 03:42:40 PM
Here's a WIP totebag with a rose on the front and an edge pattern around the top.  Originally, it was just going to have the rose, but I ended up putting the pattern around the top.  I'm so glad I made that decision -- looks much more "finished" this way.

19  Pair of underwater themed pillowcases in Needlework: Completed Projects by sonjabegonia on: August 26, 2008 03:23:41 PM
I made these two pillowcases in the completely random swap for someone who loved both Finding Nemo and the Yellow Submarine.  I wanted them to match, so the swirling fronds are the same design.  They were a lot of fun to create!

20  Paisley on black bag in Needlework: Completed Projects by sonjabegonia on: August 26, 2008 03:17:57 PM
I embroidered this paisley on a little black bag for a swap earlier this summer.  I was inspired by another paisley post on craftster where someone drew their paisleys free-hand and just had fun embroidering.  I did the same thing with this one -- making color and stitch decisions as the design evolved.
