The bunting is quite awesome!

I have semi-related good news for k8kre8s... I sent a card to my friend in Ontario the same day I sent your cushion, and she got her card yesterday. So I have a hunch that your package should make it in a couple more days, but no guarantee Sad

Aaaand the best news for the day: I received from fiddlegirl8!

I now have my own brilliant recreation of the Blooming Reindeer Pillow, but with much better fabrics Cheesy

I think fiddles did such an amazing job. All the stitching was so neat, and I can only image that it took a lifetime with all those edges! And she finished the back so nicely:

(I will have to get some advice from her on binding!)

And now my happy pillow family!

I have an ugly black couch right now so you get to see them on our psuedo-bench, but when we get our new furniture in the fall, it will all look fantastic together Grin Fiddles also sent me a nice big Kansas map! And the little note she wrote had the most adorable little bird drawn on it. Sorry for not taking pictures of those Wink

112  Re: Felt Badge Swap Gallery!! (Send Out April 30) in The Swap Gallery by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 07, 2012 02:00:32 PM
I got my awesome K-9 badge from luckdragon today! (really it arrived Saturday, but the mailman must have come late, since I didn't see it when I checked)... Tom Baker is one of my favorite Doctor's and K-9 is definitely among my favorite of his companions! luckdragon did a fantastic job of making the badge from my pinterest!

I was originally going to put all my badges on magnets for the fridge, but I like them so much I have had to come up with new plans.... my sunflower from nilmerg is now pinned to a cloth hairband that I have worn a few times. I might have to turn my K-9 into a nerding-out brooch. I love him! Thanks so much to both of my partners Smiley

113  Felt billy ball boutonnieres in Weddings and Bridal Showers by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 06, 2012 10:51:30 AM
I have started to knock out a bunch of DIY tasks I have had planned for my wedding in October. This weekend I finished a set of boutonnieres. They are made of needle felted "billy balls" on twine-wrapped floral wire with wool blend felt leaves. The one with the blue piece is for the groom, and rest are for the groomsmen and junior groomsman. I might wind up redoing the one for my fiance since I am not sure about the shade of blue I used... In general, I don't know if I should add anything else or leave them like this. The bridal party will have sunflower bouquets and are wearing yellow dresses and blue shoes.

114  Needle Felted Fox in the Woods pillow on upcycled sweaters in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 05, 2012 02:52:09 PM
Here's another recycled sweater project, this time for my partner fiddlegirl8 in the Crafted Cushion Swap R2! This pillow features a needle-felted fox walking through a mossy forest of bare trees. I really liked the stripe on the sweater, so I decided to leave it, and I think it looks nice and agreeable with the direction of the trees.

I also threw in a pair of red mushrooms on the back side just for fun. Grin

115  Needle Felted Purple Bird, Yellow Canary, and Goldfinch (picture heavy) in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 04, 2012 03:11:05 PM
A made a couple more of my felted birds this week (and I forgot about another one from a few weeks ago). This time a goldfinch, a yellow canary, and what should have been a purple canary, but I made his neck a bit too long.




I also decided to take a picture with all of my current collection together Grin

I received a beautiful cover from k8kre8s today! It really made good time for coming from Canada! I am sooo happy to add this guy to my collection:

I was even super amused by the cute dear tape she closed the package with, and the cereal box she wrote her letter on Wink

Thanks so much, k8!

I received my badge from nilmerg today! I was super happy to see this lovely sunflower. Sunflowers are my absolute favorite flower! I can't wait to have a sunny yard again so I can grow them, but that is on hold for the next few years. I am really surprised at how fast she and I received our packages with all the overseas shipping. I will be much  more optimistic about international swaps in the future Smiley

nilmerg even put the pin piece on the back, so I can wear it right away!

Thanks, nilmerg!

118  A plethora of needle-felted birds in Felting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 05, 2012 05:51:40 PM
I made a few more wool birds. I actually forgot to post my little sparrow and forget when I finished her. The silvereye and cardinal were finished in the last couple of weeks. I'm trying to develop a more defined shape/style, but so far, every bird has been completely different.

The Sparrow:

I especially like how her back came out...

The Silvereye:

The Cardinal:

119  Re: Felt Badge Swap (SignUp - April 7, SendOut - April 30) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by PerfectlyBohemian on: April 03, 2012 10:20:26 PM
I decided I needed to practice also... so I decided to join the bandwagon and share it here:

I had this in my head all day at work, and then I had a teeeeny amount of time to run to the craft store between work and other plans. Couldn't go to bed without finishing something up... I can't wait for partners. I'd really like to attempt needle felting a badge also Smiley

120  Quilted Windmill Mug Rug in Quilting: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: March 27, 2012 02:24:40 PM
For the Scandinavian Craft Swap, my partner had mug rugs on the list of things she would like, so I made her this. I had most of the fabric from thrift shops and hand-me-downs. I thought the bright colors, flowers, and geometry went really well with the theme. I botched the fins on the wind mill a little bit since I forgot to consider seam allowance after I got that square together.... The were supposed to be squared off at the ends. Sad
