11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Circus Main Attraction and Sideshow Swap Gallery on: June 13, 2015 01:38:20 PM
I received the most wonderful package from emilywilde today. It's hard to hit all the favorites of someone when you have a list to work from, but she managed to do it.

First is a trapeze girl doll:

I absolutely love trapeze and she captured the litheness and elegance of the trapeze acrobats. The doll is made from cotton thread, such tiny, intricate stitches. She even has ears. I'm in awe! Her skirt is an antique hanky and her top is made of ribbon. She came with a hanger but I can't seem to get the "hang" of it. (See what I did there?  Grin)

Then I got a shadow box with my other circus favorites:

It says, "Life is a Circus" (so true). It has animal acts (a tiger and trained seal), the cutest tiny little knitted elephant (again, I can't believe the stitching craftsmanship), a fortune teller, a fortune, a strong man, a trapeze artist, an admission ticket, and a tiny little bear. This all brings back such fond memories of the circus. I couldn't be happier.

Thanks so much, Emily. You're an awesome swap partner!

Thanks everyone. I loved crafting for this swap. I found the pattern for the doll and gypsy scarf by doing a Google search and I used part of a circus tent pattern for the cross stitch.

You're very welcome Emily. I'm so relieved everything made it all right, and on time too. Thank you USPS!

I'm thrilled that you like everything. I know you said you love crochet so I put the emphasis on that. I wish my Amigurumi skills were better. I've never worked with the safety eyes but since the twins are in the freakshow the little imperfections add to the effect (I hope). I'm really pleased you like the quote too. I'm going to finish that book asap.

I'm supposed to get my package from you tomorrow. I'm beyond excited!

That is a wonderful wall quilt! Pioneer9 did an amazing job there. *wild applause*

What a great start to the gallery! It's both impressive and anxiety producing. lol

I really love this. That's a lot of stitching and it looks wonderful.

This experiment paid off big time. Beautiful work. I love how you used the bleeding ink for the shading on the wings.

This is adorable! I love the bear's expression. Great stitching too.

This warms my heart. I love the design and stitching. You also did a great job on the hoop and backing. It looks great and adds just the right note to the piece.

I'm getting a lot of messages, but unfortunately I am really ill (temp is 101.7, coughing and nauseous), and don't have the energy to sit up and update the lists. So don't panic if your name is not changed!  Hopefully I will be better in a day or so and will update things then. I'm really sorry!

Oh no! I hope you feel better soon.
