1  Re: Warm & Cozy Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Mistress Jennie on: February 17, 2017 01:47:26 PM
I received an amazing package from LadybugsAndBumblebees

First, check out all the beautifully wrapped pieces!  I love when everything matches.  Wink


Onto the crafted goodness.  The first thing I opened was a stunning Luna Lovegood Scarf in some of my favorite colors.




Next, I found some lovely teal fingerless gloves.


Here they are on!


And next came a very fun ruffle scarf.


LadybugsAndBumblebees spoiled me rotten with tons of extras!  The goodies include tins of dairy-free hot cocoa & cookies, a Gryffindor magnet, tissues, crochet hooks, skeins of fun yarn, and some very pretty gift tags.  I think I'm going to use the yarn  to make more pussyhats for friends!


Thank you so much Ladybugs!  This has been such a fun swap, and now I'm ever more determined to finish your package up this weekend and send it off to you.  Cheesy

Challenge: Floo - Store
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: French Press Cozy

Brief Description: My husband loves coffee.  And even more than that, he loves coffee made in his French press.  So for Valentine's Day I whipped up a gift for him.  A quilted cozy to keep his coffee piping hot, while he hangs out at home on the weekends.  It's filled with insul-brite, which is a batting that reflects heat, and is used in ironing boards and coolers.  Cheesy

4  Re: Crocheted Cat Hats for Pussyhat Project in Crochet: Completed Projects by Mistress Jennie on: February 11, 2017 05:06:46 PM
After making several pussyhats for the Women's March on Washington, two of our fantastic Mods mentioned wanting hats of their own, so I made up a few more!  For both I used the Crocheted Pussyhat that I used for Audrey's hat, but tweaked the pattern a bit by stitching the ears to give them more definition from the hat, like in the Messy Bun Cat Hat

kittykill's is made from Caron Simply Soft Party, in fuchsia. 


MissingWillow's is made from Caron Simply Soft in blackberry.

6  Birds & Bees Antique Key Pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Mistress Jennie on: February 05, 2017 05:22:55 AM
This piece was created for my partner gigglygirl in the I Love Valentine's Day Swap.  It was inspired from a few different projects on her Pinterest, including some antique key pendants, and a piece with flowers encased in resin.  Because the theme was Valentine's Day, I wanted to put some love related references in it, but still keep it subtle enough that she could wear it throughout the year.  There's the Kiss charm, as well as a bird (owl), and a bee, as well as some Swarovski crystals.  The key came to me as a swap extra from AugustBell

7  Valentine's Button Art in Valentine's Day by Mistress Jennie on: February 05, 2017 05:15:29 AM
I made this for my partner gigglygirl in the I Love Valentine's Day Swap.  It was inspired from a few different pieces on her Pinterest; this canvas button art, this piece of antique key art, and several shabby chic bits and bobs that she had pinned.  Aside from the frame, everything came from my stash!  The fabric is linen embroidered with rose vines that I had leftover from a quilt, the plum & pink buttons were leftover from creating a button wreath for my front door a few years ago, and the key came from AugustBell, as a swap extra.  The frame is 10"x10", and there are approximately 90 buttons in the piece!  Even sewing them on with a few strands of embroidery thread, it still took several days to get all the buttons on there.  I'm pretty thrilled with how it turned out.  Smiley



And a head-on shot that my partner took...
