11  Cases for iPhones (or cameras) in Knitting: Completed Projects by itchyfingers on: January 11, 2010 09:13:32 AM
I made this first one for part of an angel package on the random swap.  I knitted it on a round loom and felted by hand and then embroidered the flowers and added the button.  The top colour is a very light blue (I don't think the picture shows the colour quite right).



The second one I made for the ten minute swap.  My partner and I both felt it looked like an iPhone sweater. Smiley



Edit: They moved this from felting to knitting..not entirely sure why unless all the felting projects are supposed to be needle felted??  I know the rows are still showing, probably because I did it by hand, but I wouldn't have thought I should put it here.  Can anyone enlighten me??

12  Front Row Seats in CHALLENGE 46 ENTRIES by itchyfingers on: January 04, 2010 04:08:55 PM
I feel silly entering this because of how late I'm getting it in and how many other entries there are, but I was very proud of my little project when I finished it nearly a month ago.  I made it for a city contest and the theme was the upcoming Winter Olympics (I'm in Canada - a good thirteen hours from Vancouver, but everyone is pretty excited for February anyway).  Extra points were given for sports themes, so I incorporated a ski hill into the project.  In the end, I just loved the idea of this cozy little log cabin in the woods right next to a ski hill where the occupants could watch the Olympic skiing right out their window.  I took about fifteen hours to finish this house and was pretty sugared out when it was done (something about the smell of so much sugar...even when you're not eating it, it's a bit much).

So, without further ado, pictures!  I must have taken over a hundred pictures of this house and while my lighting wasn't always great, I did end up with a few good shots from each angle to show the little details. 

I like this one as a catch-photo: the lean-to was probably my favourite detail.

The whole house from the front:

The back:

Woodpile behind lean-to:

Ski hill complete with slalom flags:


Like I said, I have tons of photos, but I'll leave it at this because it more or less shows everything.  I do have a few pretty decent macro shots that I love but I don't want to post too many pictures. Smiley

Oh, and by the way, I didn't win a thing at the city contest. Sad  Sad...but I guess that's why I'm entering this challenge, too....hope! Cheesy

My package from cjclark is here and it's all lovely!!  This was her first swap and she did a wonderful job. Not to mention the bit of spoiling (in the form of a baby quilt that she says took her three hours to make Smiley).  We had agreed on four hours of crafting and she accounted for all of them - I'm amazed at her talent in getting this all done in that amount of time!  So, without further ado, some pictures:

First, a netbook sleeve - I had requested this because I had just gotten my netbook when this swap started.  It fits my computer perfectly and is so cute!  She used a pair of corduroy pants for the outside and lined it with this super cute hedgehog fabric. Good work, Chris!

A tea wallet - from  my wists and so great!  I've been wanting one but haven't gotten around to making one for myself - this is such a surprise and such a treat!  It has two bags of tea in it, too.  Grin

More from my wists - pacifier leashes.  I will be the envy of all the other mom's who are stuck with buying theirs at Wal Mart. Wink

She said these took her five minutes to make so she threw in something else for the baby: a super cute onesie that has Baby 4.0 embroidered on it.  This is our fourth baby, so this is a great idea!  I may have to try this for some friends.

Then the extra bit of spoiling (as if I didn't feel spoiled enough already!), the quilt.  Very gender-neutral, which is great because we won't be finding out the sex of the baby.  My kids were very impressed - my oldest thinks it's great when the baby in mommy's tummy gets gifts. Smiley

And a Jill Bliss notebook that she said she had lying around - I have these on my wists and think that this one is so cute!!


So, thank you, thank you, thank you, Chris!!  Anyone who gets paired up with Chris in another swap will be one lucky individual!

So glad you like everything, Chris!  Here's a photo of the fourth notecard (which was the first one I made and is my hubby's fav.)

I was out all morning and knew that my package had been in Edmonton on the 15th..I thought that maybe it would get here today, but never would have expected them to just leave it!  So I didn't have to wait to go pick it up at the post office. Cheesy 

First of all, somehow I just knew that this package was going to smell good.  It must be dreadlocklove's study of herbalism that got me thinking this.  I wasn't even expecting any herbal products necessarily, but figured just being in her house would make it smell good.  And I was right!!  The first thing I noticed was the lovely smell. Smiley  And not just any smell - my favourite - lavender. Smiley  The funny thing is that I just smelled two different products in the last few days made with an artificial lavender smell and they made me realize how much I love the real thing.

So anyway, on to what was in this nice smelling box.  First, an apple cozy!  So cute -one of those things I've admired and wished I could make, but never planned to buy for myself - in other words, a terrific thing to get in a swap! The other item in this photo is the Bloomin' Belly Butter Jessica made for me.  It has avocado oil, coconut oil, beeswax and lavender essential oil in it (that's where the smell came from !).  This was at the bottom of the box, but it had to go into a group shot so I didn't end up cluttering up the page with TONS of photos.



Then, an adorable woodland elf hat and bootie set for the baby I'm working on. Wink  These practically made me squeal I was so happy about them.  There were also two patterns near the top of the box - one for baby clothes and one for ponchos. 



Crocheted slippers from my wist.  And brown is great, Jessica!  I have two skeins of this same yarn at home, actually.  I sewed the buttons on right away (she left that for me to do so they would fit me right) so I could get an good action shot.



A knitted tube hat that I'm totally in love with.  I have some that are similar on my wist, so this is very cool.  Perfect because my sister-in-law just made me a fleece-lined crocheted hat for my birthday but it's very warm, so this will be good for when I don't need so much warmth.



A beautiful green shawl - another wist item. Smiley



Finally, a lovely nursing poncho in dark brown that I'm super excited about.  I knew this one was coming, but didn't know the colour yet and I love it.  In some lights it looks purple.  Perhaps my partner can confirm the actual colour??  This is a nice blended natural fabric, too - bamboo, silk and cotton if I remember right.  Very light weight, which is great for nursing a baby, especially since baby is due in May and will pretty much be attached to me the whole summer. Smiley  I had a hard time getting a good action shot and if it's just lying down, it doesn't exactly give a good feel of what it looks like.  If my partner has a good picture, maybe she'll post it??

16  Two hour jumper in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by itchyfingers on: November 14, 2009 08:05:38 PM
I made this quick jumper style dress in under two hours - it's not perfect and it's more of a trial run on a Christmas dress I want to make for my daughter.  I just found a dress of hers that I liked, measured it and added a bit for seams and put it together.  Next time I'll make the pleats (ruffles..I'm not a seamstress..what's the proper word for that?) more even and do the top in four pieces and turn it inside out so none of the seams show.

This is Jenny's expression when I asked her to give me her "biggest smile". Smiley

17  Re: A Week of Baby Onesies Swap Round 3 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by itchyfingers on: November 12, 2009 11:45:07 AM
I got my new baby shirts from MlleAriella today and I love them!!  The colours are fantastic and great for either a boy or a girl (since I don't know what I'm having).

Yellow shirt with turtle (hubby's fav)

Green shirt - New Kid on the Block Cheesy I imagine I'll have to explain this to a lot of people, but I love it!

Blue with two embroidered fishies and bubbles (not the best picture, unfortunately)

White with cute little heart applique - makes me REALLY hope I have a girl because it would be so cute on a tiny little girl!

Orange shirt with embroidered dog (which I originally thought was a bunny when I glanced at it because the ears were so floppy) - so cute!


Thank you so much, Leanne!! I love them and can't wait to get them on this little person. Smiley

20  Brother shirts in Stenciling: Completed Projects by itchyfingers on: October 17, 2009 06:23:13 PM
Just some freezer paper shirts I did for my nephews - this font was so time consuming and difficult to cut out, but it was worth it in the end.
