I'll claim calluna for a foreign language text envelope.

Claims Allowed (Outstanding): 2
Claims made so far: 1

I live in Vermont, USA in a smoke-free house with many cats.

Pick 1:

Vintage yarn collection, 5 skeins of yarn from my grandmother's stash. Red Tivolaine, 70% brushed Texas mohair, 15% virgin wool, 15% nylon; Black “Frostlon Petite” Spinnerin, 67% mohair, 33% orlon acrylic; Cream “Kitten” Reynolds, 84% acrylic, 16% wool; Tan with no tag but looks and feels the same as the Kitten; White “Frostlon Petite” Spinnerin, 67% mohair, 33% orlon acrylic. I don't know how much there is in each skein, but they all look pretty full.

Vintage ballerina fabric, a little over 2 yards, from froggmomma's grandmother's stash, material unknown but feels like a lightweight cotton/poly blend.

Jar of whimsies, 5 inches tall and packed with little bits, bobs, and goodies. Outside of the USA will be sent in a baggie so as to avoid the risk of breaking glass.

Pick 2:

Plaid fabric, red and green, 2 yards. Unknown material, feels like lightweight cotton.

Hot peppers fabric, 1 yard, cotton from Fabric Traditions.

The Golden Family Craft Treasury, 1975 book with more than 150 craft projects and activities.

Junk jeweler's dream, baggie filled with vintage jewelry, findings, mismatched earrings, chains, beads, broken pendants, and more for you to upcycle.

Maple leaf dotee, made by me for the dotee swap before I discovered a new technique and made a different set.

Dusky purple tea wallet ~or~ custom tea wallet. I made these as a test run for using my new interfacing, and they came out great (I'm keeping on for myself). I can also make you a custom tea wallet and work with you on the colors and fabrics you want, but I can only work from my stash so no guarantees I will have exactly what you want. You may claim two wallets at once if you'd like that to be your whole claim.

Vintage sewing supplies (lot of 3 items), from my grandmother's stash. Includes set of 7 dress weights, 7 drapery hooks, and leather souvenir needlebook.

Pick 3:

Crochet hook, size I-9, from Susan Bates, aluminum.

Knitting needles, size 6, 10 inches long, from Boye, aluminum.

Vintage pink and white beads, 4 strands each 16 inches long, plastic.

Blue Tinkerbell fabric, fat quarter with a little square taken out of the corner, cotton.

Sticker lot, 10 sheets of various sizes and themes, missing a few stickers here and there.

Stamp lot, 20 canceled stamps from non-English speaking countries, except one from Australia.

Click on the image to enlarge:

Vintage Little Extras pattern book by Spinnerin, patterns for knitting and crochet, volume 198 from 1965.

Vintage Knits for Men knitting pattern book by Coats & Clark, book no. 134 from 1962.

264  Matchbox round 4? in New Swap Theme Ideas by Acadian Driftwood on: October 27, 2010 10:07:06 PM
I loved round 3 of the matchbox swap (gallery here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=295242.0), it was so simple and yet with so many adorable little parts! So the idea is you get one or two partners and decorate a little matchbox to their taste, then fill it with tiny goodies, crafts, and supplies! It was a lot of fun. Here are some boxes made by AmaryllisRoze and PhoenixLlewelyn from last round for inspiration. Cheesy

Anyone else interested, maybe early in the new year?

266  Coiled fabric bowls, a new addiction in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Acadian Driftwood on: October 22, 2010 08:49:18 PM
Hi, my name is Rosie ("Hi Rosie") and I have an addiction to coiled fabric bowls. I've only made three so far, but I just know I'm going to make more; I won't be able to stop myself. Look for yourself how far it's gone - I've even put things in them for scale. It's uncontrollable.

The way the light plays over the raw edges of the fabric... it's hypnotic. I don't even try to look away anymore.

The first step is admitting your addiction, so I'm told. I really don't know what happens after that. Probably making more bowls.

Thank you for letting me share, and for you continued support.

Where is everyone? Have you defected to the sketchbook project? Wink

Last night when I couldn't find any project to motivate me, I picked up my altered journal and went for it. Pulling out bits of collage and going for it. It felt nice to be doing this again.

And from KatCrochets, "Overripe Plum" coopworth wool roving, lovely deep coloring. And a cute little stowaway!

I'll have to spread out my loot from padfoot so as not to overwhelm you with amazingness. First I have this cute Dr. Horrible cross stitch, which lives on my bulletin board now:

And my very own Jayne hat! You can tell I'm not afraid of anything.

With... wait for it... matching hobo gloves! Holy above and beyond, right?

Is that it? Not even close! Behold the Mal cross stitch panel! This may become the front flap of a messenger bag soon.

And... muhahaha... a pretty floral bonnet for me!

I will totally wear this in the summer. It's this great light and gauzy material. And there's more! Little Spike ami! Only partially undressable. Sad Wink

Wait, what kind of crossover is this?

This package is tlk approved.

I got these adorable and beautiful ToL pendants from PFD today!

She saw that I had little ones like these on my wists (they're about the size of a US quarter), so she made me three different versions! Each one I unwrapped I loved even more than the last. There's a silver and Peridot semstone one, a copper with amethyst, and a brown wire with rainbow moonstone. Thank you again!
