272  Re: Fake Swapping Craft-along (ongoing) in Craftalongs by Acadian Driftwood on: February 26, 2011 04:48:51 PM
I am joining the Colette Mini Bloomers Swap

Welcome to the fake swap! Cheesy

oooo--you late senders don't make me give you negative feedback! Cheesy

I finished! Less than a week late... Wink

Here's my mug rug:

The colors are a little brighter IRL, but I didn't want to wait for sunny conditions. It has a few scraps that I've been hoarding waiting for something special, and a strip of fabric from my grandmother's stash that my mom remembers from childhood. Also a good time to practice free motion quilting! I think I'm improving. The batting is an old towel.

In action, with orange spice tea and white chocolate chip cookies.

I have to admit, when mug rugs first made their appearance on craftster I though "how neat! and useless..." but I'm fairly certain I'm going to use this all the freaking time because it's just so fun!

273  Gnomey quilted glasses case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Acadian Driftwood on: February 25, 2011 12:01:51 PM
I was so happy with how this turned out! I made it for fibreartist4life in the Small Gnome Swap, in colors she listed as her favorites.

I based the measurements and construction off of this tutorial from amazing mae, but with a button closure. 

It was my first time with free motion quilting, so there are some wonky patches, but they don't really show up. *whew* Also my first time piecing something like this, I based it on blocks I've seen around - just sort of sketched it out and started cutting and sewing. The craftster way, with as little planning as possible.  Roll Eyes

I received from fibreartist4life today! It is so wonderful. Don't you love it when you get things that you would have wisted had you seen them on craftster somewhere? That is what this package is for me!

First the cutest little baby gnome dotee - don't you love that little face!

And a little sculpey mushroom to use in a project -

Lastly my own gnome home/fairy door! This seriously blew me away, you should have heard me squeeing to my mom. Cheesy

I adore all the little details fibre put into it:

And what's more, the door opens to reveal a little secretive gnome going about his gnomey business.

eee! I love it so much! Thank you thank you fibreartist4life, swapping with you was so cool.

Received my partner Averia's package a few days ago

The pic wasn't showing up for me so I thought I'd repost:

277  mrah (for Valentine's Day) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: February 15, 2011 12:46:49 PM
This was a little V-Day gift for my boy - something we say/type to each other a lot (like every third sentence...).

The border design I modified slightly from my Jeanette Crews Designs pattern book - the modification was actually an accident, but it turned out to be perfect! Here it is still in the hoop:

Small thing, but I'm really happy with it!

Aaaah so many more pretty things!! I got my second box from hgddm today and I love it! She sent a little ATC-sized card (since we share a love of Married to the Sea) with a note on the back:

The adorable box! (That's a bobby pin attached to the outside - very clever)

All packed in!

The first thing I pulled out - little polyclay Dalek! <3

Paper bits and a wee tree stamp:

More pretties!

The round moon pendant has "dream" stamped on the back. I love all the copper, and the fleur-de-lis is beautiful. The ear cuffs fit perfectly on the very tops of my ears, though I couldn't manage to get a decent action shot - I love them! Thank you again hgddm, I love my box of goodies!

I got my package from Diesels_Mom today! Lovely little needlebook, and we agreed to swap extra supplies too. I got a little rainbow of zippers, playing cards, stamp carving kit (awesome!) and some hand-carved stamps. Very cool, and brightened up my day!

Close ups of the sweet little book:

Thank you very much Diesels_Mom! And since her camera met with a dog-related death, here's the needlebook I sent to her (didn't get a shot of the extras), it's all cotton fabric so I hope it holds up well! I went with a mildly western theme for the patterns.

I finally got up the courage to wade through snow out to my mailbox today, and it as totally worth it! Behold the awesomeness from Wulf:

Paper squid clinging to the matchbox (the wooden slats are individually cut out!):

Pre-unpacking (awesome loading job):

The loot!

A mildly itemized list:
Jewelry bits, including chain, tiny pendants, little sparkly beads, delicate metal flower, beautiful white backed kite-shaped pendant, wee Canada pin
Little beads, including semi-precious stone chips, bone bead, seed beads on jump rings, little flower spacers
Metal bits, including little gears, screws, an old fuse (love that!)
White plastic skull and crossbones, and puffy skully sticker
Awesome mushroom stamp
Teensy acorn!
Flying monkey bottlecap
Bitty jingle bells

Wulf says there isn't a theme, but I'm fairly certain the theme is "things tlk loves" Grin

A few of my favorites, and a close up on one of the beads that has the TINIEST mudflap girl EVER on it:

Thank you so much Wulf! I loved pawing through my little treasures. <3
