131  The Other Mother Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by thisbirdsabsurd on: April 19, 2010 07:19:06 AM
I always feel a little weird posting swap projects - kind of like posting something that doesn't belong to me anymore - but I was so happy with how this turned out, and so happy my swap partner liked it that I just had to post!  This was for the Coraline swap.  It is a painting of "The Other Mother" that I then stitched onto a bag that I made.  The inside has bug fabric to go along with the theme.  Smiley  Thanks for having a look!

I had to show off this beautiful bracelet I received in a swap with PirateColey!  She knows I'm a crazy bird lady and so made this especially for me!  And look at the sweeeeeet earrings that go along with it!  Beautiful work!

Sorry to hear you're having a tough day blu - hopefully you'll have some dotee goodness in your mailbox soon to make you feel better!  Wink

Okay - second dotee arrived! (I'm so glad I mailed mine out on Friday or I would have been panicing!) - Here is the awesome peacock dotee made by Piratecoley - her friend has a peacock farm so....lucky me!   Cheesy  I also got another little mask (I think Madgypsy posted it with her dotee too) - but soeone seems to have obsconded with it...hmmmm - so...here we go:


great beading and painted sculpy face! (right?) - some adorable penguin stickers came too - but what do you know - one of my daughters immediately took ownership - haha!

I also have to say that Pirate included the most magnificent charm bracelet that she made for me for a personal swap - I'm going to post it in the jewelry category as soon as I snap a few pics - you're awesome Pirate!!

Hooray hooray!  I got my first dotee today!  This is from blupaisan - and my favorite part is his little beady legs and the branch he's standing on!  Blupaisan - whatever made you think I'd like a bird dotee?  Wink  He's great! Cheesy



(OH!  and I'm just noticing that Smmarrt has posted a dotee while I've been fiddling around here - what a cute idea!!)

135  Circular knitting needle case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by thisbirdsabsurd on: March 05, 2010 02:32:37 PM
-Not sure if this belongs here or in the knitting section....seems like this is the best place.  Wink
I made this for a friend who recently took up knitting again - she has fallen in love with circular needles and was looking at a roll in the knitting shop that was going for $85!!!!  WHAAAA?Huh?  I went off measurements fir a case I found online - but I lined the pockets, added a zipper pocket, quilted the front, added interfacing for a little more body, and added ties instead of snaps. There are pockets enough for 10 circular needles and then a few for scissors or regular needles although I found out the circular case dimensions don't really account for long needles....I don't think it will really be an issue for her.

It was much more time consuming than I had anticipated, but I'm happy with the outcome.  I chose the fabrics based on her LOVE of gardening - hope she likes it!  Smiley

Outside - all folded up


Inside - lotsa pockets!


zipper!!!!


"action shot"  Wink

Oh my goodness - I hope you all are ready for some awesomeness.....I got my package today from CoutureCreations (in spite of the grenade) - and it is FANTASTIC!!!  This was her first swap, and I know she was nervous, but there was no need - she totally "got it". More importantly - I think she really "got ME" - which isn't always easy Wink - okay okay okay - on with the show......
this was the first thing that popped out at me - and can you believe this was her first foray into stuffies?  Look at his tummy "ROUS they don't exist".  lol


Next up, an awesome box with three of my most favorite characters - great picture I think - and full of little note cards so I can plot my evil deeds!


And how about this decoupaged book??  Sweet!  (I love blank books of all kinds - can't wait to fill it up! :p


Pretty awesome right???  Well wait - there's more!!

  Check out this towel and washcloth with some quotes that we all know and love....


and on that same embroidery awesomeness note - I got this adorable little bag (love the fabric) - with this gorgeous tag that I absolutely WILL find the perfect place for.....


Now of course this isn't an EMPTY bag - it opened to reveal some delicious "miracle pills" that I ate strictly for medicinal purposes! And in a little pocket there was a beautiful set of earrings and matching bracelet, "so I can feel like a princess".


  Now, can you even begin to imagine that she was nervous about her package???  Good grief!  I feel like I was totally spoiled!  Thank you a million times over CoutureCreations - you are a partner that everyone will be scrambling for!  Cheesy

Woot! Woot!  TWO doties in the mail yesterday!!!  First one I opened was from Ssmart...cute cute cute lil mermaid. She came with a little history on mermaids in art.  Love her green hair and sweet frosty flower!


Next is "Penelope" from attackofthequacks!  She was all wrapped up in soft pink fleece and came with a bio - (she is an artist inspired by animals who has just returned from a bird watching holiday!) Wink She is just adorable with all of her bits and bobs - loving her shimmery head piece!  Smiley


Thanks so much Ssmart and attack!  They are awesome and I had so much fun opening them up!
