Love the March square, CraftNClutter!

My easy peasy partner has received, so I put up project 18, the crochet hook roll I made for her. (More pictures through the link)

322  Crochet hook roll, lacey accent bits in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Acadian Driftwood on: May 31, 2009 12:30:48 PM

I made this for the recent easy peasy swap for xochristyt. I've never done crochet, but I knew that she was into it so I browsed all the great ones here on craftster* and... just started cutting and sewing. It came out pretty OK though! The pockets are of varying sizes; I only had one hook to test it out with though.

Fold-down top and accent bit:


*yeah... notice how the tag "crochet hook roll" is like ten times bigger than it was? that would be me.

Great stuff recently everyone! I feel rather behind... but now that classes are over I think I'll have some more time for crafts.

Here's #17, embroidered shirt for stitch81 for the decorated shirt swap.

#18 is also done, but I'm waiting for confirmation that my partner has received before I post it.

324  ...panda's totally fake... in Needlework: Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: May 29, 2009 01:33:22 PM

I embroidered this shirt for the decorated shirt swap for stitch81 (link shows her pictures). I hope she enjoyed it! Some themes she suggested were bamboo and pandas.

The back:

The front:

It says her name in Japanese katakana (pandas are mostly Chinese... but I don't know Chinese! You work with what you've got).

There's a bit of a story that goes along with the making-of:
My friend lisaisab and I were recently employed by Columbia Pictures to work on the movie Salt. We had training as stunt drivers (sounds more exciting that it was) for the scene in which Angelina Jolie is involved in this chase scene - she jumps from a big rig truck on one highway ramp to a box truck on another ramp, and then steals a motorcycle and zooms around cars in a traffic jam. At least... that's what her stunt double does! I really know nothing about the movie except for this one scene. Anyway, if you've ever been involved in this kind of movie business deal, you know that the "work" you do is mostly waiting around until you are needed (if you're needed), so you really should have something to occupy yourself during those long, long hours of doing nothing. Long story short, I thought it was cool that this shirt was made on a Hollywood movie set and wanted to tell you about it for some reason. Huh.

I got my package from xochristyt today! She sent me this gorgeous necklace with glass pendant and seed beads:

Here's a close up of the pendant:

And the whole package, because she included some sweet metal stencils:

Thank you so much, xochristyt! You are a great partner!

327  Summer is for... \../ METAL \../ (music) in New Swap Theme Ideas by Acadian Driftwood on: May 08, 2009 12:18:32 PM
Dio wants YOU for a metal swap.

I saw that there was talk of doing another metal swap about a year ago, but I'm not sure if that ever happened. I know my friend lisaisab and I would both be up for this, and I may even try my hand at organizing if needed. Is there any interest out there?

Surely there must be some metalheads on craftster... personally, I freakin' love Dio, Judas Priest, Megadeth... what are you favorites?

I received from hahnasay a few days ago, but I only got a chance to take pictures today. Here's a shot of the whole awesome package!

The trinkets box (Red Dwarf's black box, as explained to me in a special memorandum) made me very happy when I opened it up and looked under the lid:

In addition to the candy and stars in the black box, I found this:

ALIENS!!! Little did Rimmer know they were hiding onboard ship the whole time. I've been wearing the ring ever since I got it, and there was another one, but I've given it to lisaisab and the pair are now our "hetero life mate promise rings." Wink

There was also this sweet bag:

And this awesome picture frame! I've already found a highly appropriate picture for it, of lisaisab, our good friend, and me.

Also in the black box: red and black earrings! They are very pretty; I think I'm going to hang them in my room as decorations because I don't actually have pierced ears.

OK, so here is, like, one of my favorite things ever now.

IT'S A PEA ON TOAST. Seriously. Awesome. It makes me so happy.

There were a few more things, like a little Canadian moose (already chillin' with my Vermont moose), space stickers (stickers!), and pretty letter magnets in my name.
Also pictured in the group shot is a stack of Red Dwarf photos, which are so great! I want to have a mini-album. Cheesy

Thank you again, hahnasay! You made a great package!

Sweet, nice job with that jacket. Linings are such a pain!

Project 16 is a denim ankle cuff (I may make more of these, but I'll include them in #16). Those jeans I turned into bell bottoms I also shortened, so I had these strips I didn't know what to do with. My friend lisaisab came up with the idea for anklets - perfect! I did some beadwork on this one, though I really didn't know what I was doing, and I think it came out pretty well.

AHHH you guys, I am so excited I don't even know what to say. stitch81 sent me TWO AMAZING SHIRTS!

The first one - freakin' tie-dye peace sign! stitch81 says she is new to tie-dye, to which I say "...huh?" because this is really great work.

Here's a close up (love the colors!):

The second shirt - omfg, Totoro. And guess what - she dyed this shirt as well! Such a lovely job with they dye and the stencils.

Close up of the Totoros!

Oh, and both shirts are wonderfully soft too.
I seriously lucked out, partner-wise. Thank you again, stitch 81, you're awesome!!!
