You are getting seriously talented with that woodburner of yours. I must gleefully report that this is probably my most favorite thing I've seen you burn yet! And it's all mine  Grin You rock!

Here's my haul from the epic Abbeeroad!

The main feature: two gorgeous rust dyed scarves. I am in love. The textures she created, the patterning, sooo swoon-worthy!





Then she went and did an awesome little weaving on a piece of rusty metal. I love it so much!!



Her hubs got in the game too and crafted two seriously bad-ass silverware rings for me. I wish I had a blacksmith in my house! I told Abby her timing couldn't be more perfect, because I was seriously eyeballing some silverware jewelry last week at a local shop and decided to pass - it must have been fate!



There was also this super cool mixed media pendant that really reminds me of Abby's prayer flags, except tiny and wearable. I love all the different elements and textures! She totally nailed my style



There were also these fun extras - a rusty dyed cloth mushroom that has joined all my other oddities on what is coming my "oddity" shelf  Cheesy A beautiful wood-burned spoon with a really intense design that is gorgeous, and hilariously a flamingo rubber ducky from her trip out to Vegas.



Lastly, she also made these super cool sewn scrappy cards - I love them!! I'm trying to figure out how she managed to sew all the tiny bits on (Abby I think a tutorial is needed!)



Thank you so much Abby for being an awesome friend and crafty companion! I am having so much fun chatting with you and look forward to our next swap!  Grin

Love a chunky cowl always - you look great in that photo!  Cheesy

sheep--I just bought another skein of yarn to make another virus shawl/scarf!  I love them and they crochet up so quickly!

Haha, yes I am in love. I was trying out another pattern but was hating it, so I frogged almost a whole shawl! and am now working on another virus shawl  Smiley I'm determined to do more charity crafting so this will be the second shawl I've made to be donated.

UTM - if you're putting a request down, I can work on one to put in my STS shop in the spring   Wink

This is amazing!! I would like to try this...do you have a tutorial for it by any chance? Is that rude to ask? I really, really want one Smiley

It's not rude to ask  Cheesy I did it sort of like my stumpwork tutorial which you can find on the embroidery board. I embroidered and filled the lotus shape on some fabric (I didn't use any wire like you would with stumpwork), and then applied white glue to the edges to stiffen up the fabric. Once that was dry I was able to cut out the lotus shape and then carefully glued felt to the back to cover up all the messy stitches and sewed in the jump rings to connect it to some chain.

Hope that helps!

Yay! Thank you!!   Cheesy

And I should have figured it'd be a winter/holiday theme, duh  Roll Eyes

This is gorgeous! The gradient of colors is fantastic. Are there six different shades in there?

I thought about it, but didn't have enough of the right shades to do 6 shade changes. It's 4 different colors.

Thanks everyone for the kind words!

JoyfulClover - This time I drew on the backing fabric with a transfer pen the shape of the peace sign. Everything after that is freehanded piecing. I used sewing pins to keep all the fabric together and just worked my way from the middle out.

Next time I make one of these I'll try to take more pictures to make a tutorial for anyone who is interested.

Wow, loving the projects popping up! That kiss afghan is incredible!

I have a couple more things to share now  Smiley

An embroidered lotus necklace. It's really light and comfortable to wear.



And a peace sign ticker tape art quilt; wall hanging really. I have a lot more pictures on the post I made HERE.
