141  Re: MINI 12 Days Of Christmas Swap 2013 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by quaggy on: November 27, 2013 09:43:40 AM
If so then this one is mine!  Come on opening day I am super excited!


It has been a busy day!  Christmas tree up and decorated, work Christmas party just got home.  I did get my box open and had a few gifts that did not have wrappers so I know which one is going to be day 1 and day 2!  So excited pictures first thing tomorrow.  I am super excited as I love both of these gifts and can hardly wait to see what else is in store!

Here's a photo of all my presents!!!!!  Since I could see 2 I decided to resist opening another and make them day 1 and 2.  I figured if I waited this long I had it whipped!

Day 1
I requested a lap quilt for work and this is perfect!  So warm and fuzzy, soft to the touch.  The fabrics fit me perfect and just look at the quits hearts for decoration on side 2!  I love it!!!


Day two was another lap quilt out of cotton fabric.  Just look at how bright and fun this one is. This one will be stored away until summer when I am still chilled at work and brought out after the gloomy winter.  Both are a fantastic size and just what I wanted.  I feel spoiled already!

My work schedule will keep me from posting day 3 and 4 until Wednesday!  Yes I will be opening but after my 4:45 AM to 5 PM schedule I have to teach a certification class from 6 PM to10 PM.  My butt is gonna be dragging!


I am back to the real world sort of:  My BF is having surgery tomorrow am, we will be in the cath lab unit and hoping all goes well!

Loving the gift I decided would be for day 3.  Gotgrey made this super cute wind chime or hanging piece of art!  Several things there are me.  The wood was painted aqua, my favorite color and has vintage fishing lures hanging from it.  I used my ceiling fan for the display photo, but this work of art is headed to the lake at my trailer!  All our trailer trash friends are gonna go nuts!


I was told open in any order so I think the 25 on the gift bag had no special meaning for the day to open it!

Look at the stash of gift tags for todays prezzies!  Some of my favorite things!  Dragonflies, cupcakes, owls, fish!  Fellow cratfsters these may find there way to you in a future swap!


Today I opened this gift because the shape drew me in!  I collect gingerbread men and I now have a new family member.  A cute painted ginger bread box, thinking this will hold lots of candy around this time of year.  The icing is raised so cute!



Todays gift was quite adorable.  Got up o take BF to cath lab this morning opened gift and stupid me left it on the coffee table.  This is what I came home to lying on the floor scattered in a few places.  My heart is broken and Sugar has a sore behind!

It must have tasted good!


Todays gift will be an addition to my cupcake collection, super cute cupcake attached to a saucer.

Super excited with a refurbished bird house made into a clock with owls for the numbers and a  chain full of fish.  


I was hoping to get one of gotgreys stuffies and I did!  This ubber cute owl which I have named Theo.  

DAY 10

So excited about the gift I got today!  An altered tin, I love this.  Just look at the detail and the outside.  So rustic!  This will be finding a home in my lodge look bedroom!

DAY 11

A cute Christmas mobile!  Loving the shape of the wood topper!  Only able to use this for a few days but will pack it away for next year!  And a vintage stained glass owl bell!  This is so me and will be added to my collection of treasures!

Day 12

A mobile on a smaller scale of the one my dogs destroyed.  Super cute party owls!  Weird how similar is  that one was messed up, I was heart broken and I got a replacement.  There really is a Santa!!

It over!!!! So sad, but wait I still have gifts did I mess up opening along the way?Huh??

I was sent 2 pieces of amazing art work!    One is a watercolor that was rolled up.  I have it under some books at it would not lay flat to get a picture so I will be back tomorrow!   It is amazing and perfect for me!  It will either go in my Master bath or to the lake trailer!

I can show you this one and it is headed to the lake!  This is super cool!  A mixed media:  Rock, shells, art canvas, a vintage trailer on canvas, a photo of the beach and tree bark.  This is amazing and so me!!!!!

 I have not heard from my partner and hope all is well with her.  I decided to play with my wool felt and create some badges that I found on nostephot's pinterest.  Here are the results I hope she enjoys them!

We both love Halloween.

Camping is so fun! 

A day on the lake!

Bird uncaged!

Fun floral!

I  sewed pinbacks to the back side, or a magnet could be added!

My final package has arrived and I was super spoiled!   I love Halloween and was not able to join any Halloween swaps because of other swap commitments but nostephot surprised me with a box full of Halloween treats.

All four items were crafted with an embroidery machine! 

First up this fantastic tote.  The ecru fabric is heavy weight and will become my new fall carry to work bag for all the work I take to and from work.  Poison.......perfect!!!!

Next a cute hoop for my hoopla wall!    Eat drink and be scary!  Love the background fabric so cute.

and as if this was not enough not 1 but 2 kitchen towels!!!  Love both motifs that were used.  I decorate for all holidays and these will be going on my oven door.........just for pretties!!!!

This has been such a fun swap, kinda sad that it is over.......reminded me of the craft of the month clubs they use to have!!!!!

Thank you nostephot for such a wonderful swap!!!!!

My package arrived and I just found time to post pictures!!!!!  I think I may know who my secret partner was and will reveal at the end of this post please let me know if I guessed right.  There was nothing to give her away but after a few hours of research I think I may have narrowed down my 3 to 1.

I love everything and it will all be used!!!! 

First up a new tote.  I love the fabric used for this morsbag.  I love frogs as this was my dad's nickname, long story but this has a special meaning for me and aqua and turquoise is my favorite color.  The frogs are so cute there fat little bellies floating in a pond!!!!!!

She also includes a nifty tissue holder using the same fabric. Too cute and both of these sewn items are so well made.

Something I often use are snack bags and now I have one with fish on it!   This is another favorite theme and the bag will be perfect for those at work desk snacks!!!!!!

I collect pincushions and this one is darling, so bright funky and fun.  It is double sided so two photos to show it off!!!!!   A great addition to my collection.

And the one item that had me leaning towards the person I think crafted for me a twin to another owl magnet that I received in a secret one tiny thing swap.  I love him!

So hoping I am not wrong>>>>>>>>>I think my swap partner was Homerof2!!!!

Here are the things that I sent to nostephot!!!!!

We both have a love for Halloween so I decided to send a painted wood piece that I cut using the band saw. 

Next up for her favorite football team, 2 king size pillowcases, perfect for lounging.  Yes the Saint's (where she is from)  beat the Texans (where I am from)  in pre season last week.  We both enjoy football too!

I also added to the stash with some vintage quilt books and a quilt kit that includes fabric for a Thanksgiving Turkey wall hanging.  Nostephot  has a yearning to do more quilting!!!!!

My partner and I have both been super super busy!  My package #2 arrived earlier this week but working 15 hours every day has left little time for craftster!!!!!   Boooo!!!

Here are the goodies that nostephot sent!

First up add to my stash fantastic fabric.  I am a fabricaholic  not ashamed to say and I love owls!  I have never seen these two print and there is 3 full yards, gotta find the perfect me item for both!

Next I have been wanting stuff for my trailer at the lake and this is spot on in my favorite color.  A vintage travel trailer that I will use as a pincushion, so needed and so chic!!!!!!!  It is hand sewn and made from felt.  I also got a scrap of trailer paper and must locate more on the internet if possible , I love it!!!!

Nostephot stalked me well.  I collect vintage board games without UPC codes and she sent me one called Society Today from 1971.

Here is a picture of part of my collection, how she could see all the titles to know I didn't have this one amazes me!  This is a 6 ft 3 in X 4 ft antique wardrobe.

Thanks for such a fun fantastic package #2.........

What a cute package!  I may just steal the firecracker idea!!!

My packaged arrived from kayrun and I was amazed at what I saw!

First up my initials are RLM

R is for really small pin cushion.

Super cute addition to my pincushion collection. Along with a scrap of fabric that it was made from.  Kayrun shared that this was a challenge trying to get the owl centered, I kinda like how it is peeping over the edge.  Something else Kayrun shared was the blog said you could add Velcro to keep it by your machine.  then a light bulb went off, when I craft in the car I usually have a lap board this would be perfect to attach it to while making felt badges or teesha moore squares.

L is for lacy washcloth!

Drooling over the color and pattern!  It is a perfect match to my kitchen color and so detailed.  I am amazed that this can be created from a skein of yarn. I love my new washcloth!

M is for owl mitts!!!!   Love, Love, Love

Right hand.....

Left hand........  yep a pair!!!!!   See the cool owl motif on top of my hand?Huh?

These are perfect for days when I am outside needing to write, in the past it has been impossible to keep my hands warm.  Being made from wool yarn, I no longer will have that problem!   The tweed color will go perfect with my black coat and the owl motif is a bonus.

Kayrun also sent along a cute round note pad with a magnet attached, perfect color for my kitchen fridge!

How can someone have a challenge with fabric and then go and create something like this from yarn?Huh   Still scratching my head over this one!!!   I am amazed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Kayrun for another perfect round to my favorite swap!!!!
