Thanks everyone for their comments about the Cheshire Cat. I was looking for a picture to convert to cross stitch but most were so involved it would have taken me a year. When I found that picture I fell in love with it, and it converted so well! It took a little tweaking to make sure the words came out right. I did the eyes and teeth in glow-in-the-dark thread so at night he's a true Cheshire Cat, just the eyes and teeth show. It does say "Alice in Wonderland". I had to do a double take to see the "in" in the eyes myself.

I'm so glad you like those notecards, Whitney. I just pulled the images off Google. It was the easiest of the things I made. I'm sure you'll do an awesome job framing them if you choose to do that. You're a remarkable crafter.

I also apologize for not posting pics sooner. I was waiting for you to get home. I'll post later tonight so people can see all the wonderful things I got. I asked for the White Rabbit in his heraldic costume. Wait until you all see what she did for me. *is thrilled!*

Wow! I'm not even into this musical but that's some seriously impressive stitiching.

Lord of the Rings is my all time favorite. I don't think I could resist this swap should it come to reality.

That latitude/longitude tote is totally incredible, and the smiley scarf is cute as can be. Love the colors.

I second hippiejo74 on that embroidered crochet hook roll. Wow, that's amazing work! Tulgey wood creatures, lol. I wish I'd thought of that.

I knew this swap was going to have some great stuff.

That's the perfect Slaughterhouse Five quote and the design is perfect too. I know quite a few people who would love this.

This is a great design. I'm looking foward to seeing the one with the glow in the dark thread you described here as well.
577  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Murder on Crafster Swap on: January 09, 2009 11:32:28 PM
I'm a fan of Agatha Christie, especially Hercule Poirot, and Rosemary Rowe, who writes these mysteries set in ancient Britain when it was under Roman rule. There are also a set of murder mysteries where Groucho Marx and his reporter friend solve the mysteries. If you like Groucho, or old Hollywood, you'd get a kick out of them. I don't remember the author.

I also like Monk and Psych. I was actually tempted to join the Psych swap but that was a little too specific for me, plus I was involved in a couple of other swaps at the time. I can't do more than one at a time. I'm a slow crafter.

I love the ransom note idea. See, that's the kind of thing I never seem to think of on my own. You're a natural at this.

I received from my partner, MissWhitney, today and I'm speechless. This is the most thrilling package imaginable! I'm going to wait until next week to post pics so she will be able to see them and bask in all your lovely comments. Suffice it to say I was blown away and I think you all will be too.

EDIT: Hey! I just noticed the package above. I love that Mad Hatter pillow. What a great idea to do the unbirthday cake on the back. The bag is so cool. Such fine stitiching, and the quote is great. I've had days like that. lol

Nicely done, Jalapeno.  Smiley

I sent on the 5th and so did my partner. She got hers today. I'm hoping to get mine tomorrow. *is anxious*

Tracking shows my partner got her package today. She sent mine on the same day so I should be getting mine within the next day or two. *crosses fingers*
