Yay, the second half of my package from goddessgarb got here today! Besides wall art, she claimed me for a hide-away book, and this one is awesome! It'll totally blend in with my collection of big, old, cloth-bound books.



Now to find a flask that fits in there... hehe I'll probably just use it to store my passport though. Cheesy



Thanks again!

Here are my foreign texts from calluna - I could hardly fit them all in the picture! There are some Japanese pages, a "greeting puzzle" and a whole Japanese book, copies of a French newspaper, some Hebrew, a bit of German newspaper, a slew of Slavic scripts that I can't place, and some sheet music that I'm also not sure about, but my guess is Gaelic. Very awesome!

I received half of my claim from goddessgarb, the wall art part! It's an easy size to frame since it didn't come with one, and I really love the colors. It reminds me of the shifting patterns of sunlight through water. Smiley



Thanks again ggarb, and I can't wait for the second half!

OK, I'm not sure if y'all are ready for the mature-image-tagged amazingness that I received from Fullmoon today. So without much preamble, I present my boobies dotee!

Such intricate nipple beadwork! (I'm so happy I got to say that.) And the little cleavage face... so perfect. Thank you so much, Fullmoon for making my day (week, probably)! And wouldn't you know it, the hanger ribbon was just the perfect size for...

Yay, they're all safely in their new homes! Here's their own post over on the weaving board, including Arthur, who I kept for myself. He was the first one I made and he's not quite as sturdy as his family.

267  Woven scrap dotees in Weaving: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: November 03, 2010 09:59:07 PM


Inspired of course by Nooo's scrap monster, I decided to go in a new direction with my dotees this round! I didn't have any sort of loom though, so I decided I could make one with a cardboard gift box... which mostly worked!



Yeah, that's a chopstick. I make do.



The final square, pre-face attachment:



A bit of sewing, gluing, and braiding, and we have the Scrapps family!

Mina:



Larrence:



Arthur:



And their kitty, who I attempted to give ears:



Thanks for looking!

I received my first dotee of this round, from alwaysinmyroom, and he's pretty much the bomb! I present: Seth, the high class pirate.



He took his treasure chest with him, and if you lift the flap you can "peek at the family jewels!" (I loved that note, always.)



The details are just fantastic, and I adore him! Thank you again!!

I'm going to claim guacaMolly for 12 glass vials Smiley

Claims Allowed (Outstanding): 2
Claims made so far: 2
Sendouts Sent: 0
Sendouts Received: 0

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.



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.
