11  Re: Givers and Needers Swap Round 13 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by quaggy on: September 08, 2015 06:03:38 PM
My thank you gift arrived from sdelnegro514 today.  I am so happy and not only did she craft me several great gifts but she also sent along something for my favorite holiday and a gift card that will buy several cups of coffee Grin and donuts too!  Grin
 Kiss Kiss
First up are these cute, bright colored mushrooms.  I had the jar left over from something and decided to use it for my photo. I love the grouping and how the butterfly flutters above them all.  This is gonna head to work and adorn my desk as I spend way to much time there but these will brighten each day.  I also have a terrarium on a shelf at work and I think I will add a few to it as well!

oops sorry for the sideways photo

Next up is this cute cup cozy......I do not crochet and always love it when you send something crocheted my way.  This will be perfect around my mug at work and it has the heart which means yes I love my morning coffee!

as if this was not enough she also sent along a dunkin donuts gift card.......yum yum  Kiss

and these two Towels for my favorite holiday Halloween!!!!! yikes spiders.....so fun!!!!

oh a peek at how my gifts came wrapped!!!!

Shannon......I love all my Thank you gifts!!!!!!  Have fun crafting!!!!!!!!

Ok here is my awesome thank you from sheepblue!

It has a Victorian look.....awe and the amazing detail!!!!!

I love this new brooch and it was well received by my co-workers!  Last weekend as I was moving about the back yard I was amazed to see 8 dragonfly's just hovering about.  We we get to the lake they are everywhere.  An amazing creature that is a favorite of mine!

Eeekkkkk!!!!! Excitement has set in!  BF asked me well aren't you going to open them.  Then I had to explain the madness to him about this swap.


OMG just look at my 1st gift!  PFD stalked me well and even went in search of the original artist for this necklace.....talk about dedication to pleasing her partner (me).  She added the crystals and included a pair of earrings to match!


A collectible resin napkin holder. I collect these and have about 25 of them....owls are always a plus.....these are getting harder to find and way more expensive than a few years back.  I also received 2  towels and some fun napkins to use in my napkin holder

Day 3

Big squeal here.....I love Frankenstein so much and PDF sent me this awesome Frankie shirt.  The white stitching is hand sewn and just makes this t-shirt perfect.  I sported him around today while running errands.

Stickers from Day 3 and the cute bag that my frog/candy corn necklace and earrings came in.

I also finally got my tree put up.


A pumpkin that PDF decoupaged with pages from a vintage Poe book.....she then added the ribbon and fall dcor...this is amazing and so me....It is staying out through Thanksgiving!

Having issues with pictures tipping over.  They appear right when I upload but somehow keep falling on their side


I have had these on my pinterest forever and was so pleased when I opened up my package today.  PDF used a vintage dolly for one.  I love the fabrics she chose.  One for now is decorating my ceramic owl that my Halloween tree is sitting on.


Oh so cute candy corn........Love these and I am gonna use them in 2 separate places...look how neat the yarn is and perfect application!  I do not think I would have the patience or the ability to get these to come out looking store bought.  Mine would appeared to be a gluey mess......


Winner!!!!  It's me....I love Frankie and I have my very own super cool Altered Book Box!  Love the Frankie image and so well made just look at the inside, the page edges and the binding......Inside was also a super cute Frankie suncatcher.....eek, he is holding a spider!

I wish I could figure out why my pictures keep laying on there side.....


I was super spoiled today......bummed that I left for work this morning forgetting to open my gift......when I finally was able to open I found not 1, not 2 but 3 fabulous necklaces.....and yes one is a piece that had made PDF famous on craftster.

2 tile necklaces and PDF made the clasps as well.....gotta love her skills

A spooky Halloween scene

Christine from Stephen King a favorite author of mine

and drum roll please!!!!!!!

A Halloween Moon pendant.......I love all three......just look at her artistic skills!!!!!!!!!

Lucky me!!!!!


I love this cute ceramic pumpkin house.  PDF was stalking me pretty good as she saw my love for fairy doors and this pumpkin house has one.  She also knew of my love for frogs and the cute little fellow on top makes it perfect.  This is headed to work with me to adorn my desk.

Day 10

I knew PDF has some mad jewelry skills but just look at this Frankenstein head that she painted.  He is so cool and she did a super job....he looks so real!  Can you believe he made from Styrofoam...this blows my mind!

DAY 11

Loving this wreath!  Just look at all the spooky detail!  So bright and fun!!!!

When I opened the box inside I found my last 2 gifts!!!!!!!

Pictures look better on your phone at least they post right side up...  Wish I could figure out way they are sideways this is driving me crazy!!!

DAY 12

Super excited about todays gift.....PDF shared that she had ordered something that was broken when it arrived.....She managed to use it to make this terrific piece of wall art, then went in search of finding another one to send to me in the swap.  I LOVE THIS.  I also added a few photos to show how well it fits my decor and my napkin holder collection

I have had a amazing partner.....it is as if you got into my head and saw my house through my eyes!!!  Knew exactly what I needed and where to put it!

Day 13

What a wonderful ending to such a fun swap!  My gift today was a beautiful tapestry Halloween pillow!  Loving the pumpkins and crows,,,there you go again PDF was lurking my home to see what I needed.  Although the swap is over I will treasure my gifts for years to come!

PDF also sent me some fabric.....this is awesome.....it amazes me that I have never seen this print before and Frankie is so freaking cute.... just look at all the cute characters.....hmmm....this will actually be sewn up into something special for me!

My package from redpopsicles arrived and I am thrilled!

First up I requested a prayer flag and I was amazed that I received a whole sash of prayer flags!  Since I do not have a garden I wanted items for my outdoor area where I sit and read, watch and feed the birds and grill.

action shot in its new home!

Individual flags!!!!!!

not sure why my photos are turned hope you can enjoy them sideways......they are even more fabulous in person.  Baltik fabric with paintings!!  win win!!!!

Next up something I always request and enjoy is altered art redpopsicles sure delivered!

Here's the back so you can see first what she altered!

and the flip side!! Hoot Hoot! This is amazing so well hand crafted!!! I am in awe!

redpopsicles also included this super cool magnet set in some of my favorite colors!

Thank you so much redpopsicles for such a fun well thought out package!  I hope you enjoy the things that I sent your way too!

19  Texas size pillow in Quilting: Completed Projects by quaggy on: May 25, 2015 07:54:26 PM
My partner in the scrappy swap's favorite color was purple.  So when I dug through my scraps I found the perfect pieces of fabric to make this scrappy pillow.  It ended up needing a 24 in pillow form.  I also used some stash yo-yos and buttons for added decorations and to make it a bit more scrappy! The back has a Velcro closure the length of the pillow so that it can be removed and washed!

20  Sunshine wall quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by quaggy on: May 25, 2015 07:47:41 PM
I made this fun and bright summer wall quilt for my swap partner in the Scrappy swap.
I managed to use some stash buttons and fabric that I already had.  The center was a fabric panel that I just stitched everything in a straight stitch to outline it which also made the quilting stitches.  So bright and fun!

Hoping to brighten up a dark space!
