Oh my goodness imafundork!! I can't believe I got so confused! I'm going to find a knitting equivalent of that and send it to you. I'm so sorry.
It was a fabulous Saturday morning when I got this!
Mr. Zeddies and I unravled/rerolled the ball of yarn (a lovely LOVELY organic grey wool. It's crazy but I've never crocheted with natural fiber before, I have some cotton but I've never used it. I'm so stoked to try it!)
A group shot, here we have the yarn, about a million buttons beads and fabric baubles, two pins, a couple really awesome vintage bottle caps, a shell shaped cookie cutter, a flower barette, a lady bug barrett, a little gun bead, a zoo of brightly colored plastic animals, a cute little turtle (which Mr. Zeddies has laid claim to), A whole bunch of stickers, A SUPER adorable earring/bracelet set (wearing it now!), Two lip glosses, two eyeliners (which by the way is probably the best eyeliner I've used EVER mark. brand? ), two candles, a crochet hook, gator-egg gum, and best of all (something I've been wanting for AGES)
A HOOK ROLL! YAY!
Thank you so much imafundork! And I'm going to find that pattern in knit for you, I'm soo so sorry again!
I'll let you know if the original ever comes, But here it is! The LOVELY package from Frosty.
First: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU I LOVE IT! (ew... i hate typing in caps but thats what i was squeeling when I opened it)
So here are some shameless photos for you:
First we have : - a red drawstring bag (good for storing all kinds of little things in, I think I might use it for a mojo bag) - a really cute decorated jar, I love to blend teas so I think I'm going to make myself a special feel good tea and put it in here - a money spell! (who couldnt use one of these) It's actually in my wallet right now (I wish i'd put it in before I went into battle with the bank today...grr friday the 13th)
- Two, count'em TWO cute pents! - The silver one is already on my altar, hanging out with Ganesha. - I havent decided what the white one is yet, I think it's going to be green and brown and get hung over my front door.
- A super super cute purple purse with a subtle and totally cute triple moon emroidered on it! I'm actually using it already, It's coming to pagan class with me on Wednesday and I know my class mates are going to be SO jealous.
- A shot of the lining and also the cute little book mark that came with everything. I love bookmarks and actually collect them, but I dont think I mentioned that in my swap info did I? Weird!
So yeah, totally TOTALLY worth the wait. Thank you again Frosty, I love it.
Hello Ladies! (And gentlemen!) I'd like to show you my very excellent, nice and toasty 2 hour skirt. All you need to make this is a few yards of flannel (3 different prints) some ribbon and a very cold night in Pittsburgh!
You see, I have loads of super cute skirts for spring/summer. Unfortunately I do not have any for winter! And being bitter cold I needed a skirt to just, hang out in. I wanted something warm, soft and loose. So, here it is, my 2 hour comfy skirt!
Almost three years ago a troop of tibetan monks came to my University Campus. They did many musical performances and spent most of their week at my campus working on beautiful sand mandalas. As part of the very small religious studies department I was lucky enough to get to spend some time with them, I was part of a number of large dinners and even had the opportunity to play basketball with them (by far, the most polite game of basketball I've ever been a part of). As part of their troop they sold Malas, made by themselves and their brothers back home. I bought a string of sandalwood mala beads that have not left my wrist since I bought them. They're like a security blanket for me, a meditation tool, basically just something that has become a part of me. A month ago, they broke. The beads scattered all over the sidewalk, I lost a number of them. So, I went out, bought a string of Moss Agate (one of my favorite semi-precious stones) a Lord Ganesha medallion (my patron god) and re-strung my beads. I can not tell you how relieved I am to have my beads back on my wrist. The number of beads I lost ended up working out perfectly so that I could still have a string of 108 and have even groups of sandalwood between my moss agate. I'm so stoked about how they turned out, I figured I'd share them with you!
Okay, I scoured my camera, and unfortunately I only have photos of one thing I sent to phildude
So lets see, I sent her 4 blends of tea, my Yule blend, two sicky teas and something else.... I cant remember! Also a steeping spoon, I use mine all the time! I also crocheted a black and ribbon hat, for those chilly winter days! An ABCs of paganism books, something like A- Athame, B- Beltane, C- Cerrunos... so on
And, Finally, my favorite! A Coexist cross stitch! (I framed it before I sent it)
I'm sorry I didnt have any other photos... I usually take pictures of everything I send I just wish the postal service would hurry up with my package!
Okay, so ladies, this is only my second cross stitch project, and it's the first pattern that I've designed myself. If anyone would like it I'd be happy to scan it and up load it. You may've seen the bumper sticker that I based this on. And, like any good religious studies/ craft geek I had to give it a shot. Well, without further adieu, here it is!
What do you think? (Please forgive the wrinkles, I havent taken any pictures of it now that it's been ironed and framed)
Finally a picture of the piece with a sharpie, for size comparison.
I'd really appreciate any feedback I can get, like I said it's only my second project... my first was from subversive cross stitch, and had been designed by some one who knows what they're doing.
oi vey, I'm sorry about the lion yellowing everything!! I also loved everything you sent me! And here are the photos!!
The adorably wrapped packages, each numbered in the order i was to open them!
The sweet book plates she made me, 4 with the covers from the books on them and a bunch in purple/black and red/black. These are super awesome since my Dh and I have about a million books and no one knows whose are whose!
Napkin Rings! How cool is this? I never ever would've thought to make Twilight Napkin rings! I love them!
A painting with my absolute favorite quote from all the twilight books!! it's currently hanging out in Tim's office with all of our geekery!
My favorite thing!! A Totally Sweet, 100% rad Tshirt! I've been wearing it around since i got it!
