31  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Star Wars Swap Round 3 (sign-ups 6/8-6/19; send-outs 7/18) on: July 09, 2009 09:57:43 AM
I think I'm on track, but I don't mind if the send-out gets pushed back a week...

Just to give credit, the little bag I sent them was from another swap with TheSapphireMoon.  It was always either too big or too small for the things I tried to use it for, but it was perfect for holding chibi's bracelet Smiley

I agree that this is a lovely dress, and that the visible boning gives a more modern emphasis.  I'm assuming that leaving the sleeves off indicates that you're OK with a little difference from historical accuracy, and if it were my dress, I'd be inclined to try some black top stitching to either side of the bones to emphasize them even more. Maybe do one with a basting stitch so it's easy to take out if you don't like it...

Hey folks Cheesy  Hope everyone had a happy 4th!

I have one item nearly done, and one item started, but I need to pull out my poly clay to finish both of them.  A third item is still just on paper, but I don't foresee any trouble with it Smiley

Hey everyone, sorry for the delay in getting these last two sets of pictures up, holiday festivities over the weekend have thrown me all off Cheesy

First, here's my pics of the fabulous magic yarn ball of whimsies that Sarahj sent me:


This is a closeup of my favorites, which really is mostly all of it Cheesy


Thank you so much, I had so much fun unwrapping it, The yarns are all so different but all wonderful and I can't wait to use them.  I think the white will end up as an amigurumi, and the green and multi-colored will both become scarves Cheesy 


I also received my stamp from sparky last week, as well as some other goodies.  Here they are...

First she made me a wonderful birthday card:


Then, she made me the stamp for the back of my ATC's.  Ive seen these before, but I've never liked the style of the ones that are typically for sale, I just wanted something the matched my style and gave me some ruled lines to write one.  Well, she totally hit the nail on the head with this amazing stamp.  Also in the picture, she made a smaller triquetra stamp and sent me some seashells and wonderful keys:


And finally, she made me some awesome watercolor bookmarks that I think are based off some buried deep in my wists:


I totally love everything I've received in this swap!  A million Thank You's to my fabulous partners Cheesy  And Happy Birthday to everyone!

Radmom, I add my wishes for recovery to everyone else's.  Hope you're better soon!

And here, to take your mind off it, I'm finally catching up on all my picture posting.  Here's the wonderful things that Solitaire sent to me...

beautifully embroidered kitchen towels and pot holders:


a lovely journal that I couldn't get craftster to rotate for me:


a crocheted Gryffindor scarf:


a birdbath for the garden:


a tree of life pendant and wire wrapped moonstone:


a bubble wand for my daugher:


a colorful button bracelet:



She also sent me fabulous golden snitch earrings like these except the beads she used were fabulous golden filigree instead of roses and were just perfect, and an embroidered eyemask with a lavender scented insert, neither of which made it into pictures because the earring were in my ears and the mask was cooling in the freezer for my nap Cheesy

Ok, here's my pictures of the wonderful things I received from Chibi and Ronda.  Fair warning, there are a LOT of pictures Cheesy

I don't know if these count as milifiore, since there's really only one flower - maybe unafiore?  Cheesy  But really it doesn't matter because I love these a thousand times more than regular milifiore beads -



Here are the fabulous stone beads still on their strings -





Here they are unstrung and separated, the glass flowers are done by dominant color.  Ronda, I'd love if you could ID the stones for me.  I know some, but most I'd just be guessing -



Here's the rest of the wonderful glass beads.  Some of them don't have great focus, my camera just didn't seem to like them -







And here are the awesome metal charms and findings.  The three bags are hooks and rings and leaf charms.  The two cups are filled with tiny awesome things -







There was also a beautiful pair of earrings and a collection of stones from Ronda which somehow failed to make it into my crafter photo hosting, so I"ll have to track them down and post them later.  I've also started making some adorable bracelets and I'll post some pictures of those as well Smiley

Thank you so much, Chibi and Ronda!!!

Hey everyone, hope you all had a happy 4th, for those who celebrate the holiday Smiley

We went to a friend's house who throws a party every year and watched fireworks from his yard.  We got to see a lot of friends that we often only see at this party and we all had a great time. 

Also, I discovered how lovely Mike's hard pomegranate lemonade is Cheesy
