1  Re: Journal Cover Swap (Send Out, March 16) in The Swap Gallery by playswithneedles on: March 19, 2015 08:11:31 PM
And here it is! LimeRiot picked up on my love of circles, isn't this the greatest?! Don't you love the circles? And the stitching is so perfect.


And the back (the flash washed out the colors):

The inside flaps also had cute little circles stitched on. Thanks so much, LimeRiot, I love it and am sure it will get lots of use!!

Thanks for being a great partner and organizer! I hope you lead us in another of these swaps sometime soon. I feel like I didn't have quite enough time to perfect my technique and know that the next one I make will be much better than the first two Grin

yay, I received my awesome doll from mamarose22. I love her dress and mary jane shoes. mamarose made the skin parts of her body out of twill, what a great idea. And she honored my request for blonde hair. And she's a tall girl, standing at 23 inches. What isn't to love?!

Thanks so much mamarose22!

woohoo, I received two AWESOME flags from flyraeven. What a lovely Mother's Day gift! The tag on the left says "I am one." This has so many meanings for me, and I love the feeling of "ahhhh" I feel when I look at the flag. It reminds me of floating on the water - LOVE IT!! I love trees, and love that she paired them with one of my words "unity." I love this way of making trees (and flowers) out of fabric! And the lace trunks add a nice touch of texture. I am one lucky individual to be the recipient of such lovely flags and to have such a great daughter!! Thank you  Grin

My partner, pioneer9, has received and has asked me to post a photo of what I made for her. Here is the front of her neighborhood page

and here is the back - I like the way the back looks!

I had more crafty fun making this than I have had in a long while! I may have to make myself one  Smiley

I hope its what you had in mind (or better), pioneer9!

Here are my two lovely pages from the generous pioneer9! I wish my photography skills were better, the owl has some nice texture and so does the tree. I love trees (and the color brown too)! Thank you pioneer9, I should be sending yours out on Monday, weather pending!

I'm so relieved that the pages that alwaysinmyroom made for me arrived and were not lost! I'm so happy with these and am guessing a lot of you will be pinning them (perhaps I should have photographed them separately?)!

I LOVE them, they are perfect for me! The simplicity, the meaning and symbolism and the texture - gorgeous! I feel so fortunate to have had you for a partner  Smiley

The note that alwaysinmyroom enclosed with the pages said that the gingko leaves were dyed with onion skin, hibiscus, tea and then embellished with fabric paint. So lovely and fun to touch!

Thank you so much, what a great swap and I'm looking forward to round 2!

7  Re: Mini Art Quilt Swap 7 Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by playswithneedles on: October 30, 2013 07:04:30 PM
get ready to be envious, I received the BEST mini art quilt from sloth003 today. I can't even begin to tell you how much I love it. It is a miniature version of a quilt I had favorite on flickr. I love the colors  - a mix of neutral and nature-inspired. Fabric with circles. Abstract ovoids that with a little imagination could be nature related as well. THOSE ARE APPLIQUED, PEOPLE! And to top it off, the quilting is a Buddhist eternal knot (which, unfortunately, is hard to capture on my camera). Between the nature, the eternal knot and the ovoids resembling locks and keys, I believe this little quilt holds the answers of the universe  Grin

Thanks, slothy, you outdid yourself!!

I received my OTT from my secret pal _____________________! It is a hand dyed, hand painted, hand beaded (sparkly ones!), hand stitched OCTOPUS! To the right of it is the photo it is based on. And it was wrapped in the green/turquoise fabric and tied with the ribbon. Four gifts in one! Thanks secret pal, I love it - I love all things from the sea. And who doesn't love fabric and ribbons?!

I received my awesome flag from silentblair today (okay, it's been at the post office most of the week, but I was just able to go retrieve it). I LOVE it! It is so me!

my photography skills do not do it justice. The brown background is a rich chocolate color, the flags on the banner on top are made out of what looks like a book page. There are leaves drawn/painted on them. I love the saying, it is stamped on what feels like linen, framed in what I think might be fabric for cross-stitching. It really adds alot to flag! Adn the big maple leaf in the center is so great - machine stitched.

Thank you so much silentblair, you made my whole three-day weekend!

Here is my "wonder"ful flag from Smmarrt. It follows the hand theme we have going. I love the way the fingers are wrapped around the stem of the flower. The flower looks like a dandelion that has gone to seed, which I love. My new pup loves to run and bite the heads off of dandelions and ends up with little seeds all over her mouth and face!

what a clever and creative flag, Smmarrt, and its very well done. Thanks so much, I love it!
