2471  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Assassins Creed? Hells Yeah! on: November 29, 2011 07:12:32 PM
You guys are all so sweet. Thank you very much. I love French knots! I don't know why everyone hates them so much. Yeah, using them as a fill takes forever but for accents they are super easy and add so much punch. As a fill they have so much texture and depth! My husband loves them too which is good because, you know, Christmas...

As for the partner thing, you guys are sweet there too. I don't want to drag up the past but I will say I almost quit Cster because of her, or at least swapping, but then I decided I'm better than that and it actually encouraged me to post more of my projects, like this one! So it's not all bad, eh?

The short story of how this came to be:
My partner in the Video Game Swap this summer dropped after telling me I am a horrible mother (because I stay at home) and my crafts suck so she wouldn't want to swap with me anyway.
But I had already planned this hoop! So I made it for my husband instead. He would appreciate it more than her snotty 12 year old anyway.
Wanted to follow along with the swap and have it done before the SO just because and surprise him with it but then my kids showed him the WIP and that killed it for me so I dropped it for a while but decided I really need to clean out my WIP bucket so I finished it in time for Cmas. Would have been cooler if I had it in time for the release of the new game a couple weeks ago but what's a girl to do? Cmas works just fine around here.

100% French knots, which is funny because in the second game with Ezio (so the 3rd game all together) the French are some of the bad guys.

Close up! I would generally have stitched something on the felt I glued on the back but since I included this J <3 G I decided to just leave the felt on the back alone. It will hang more evenly from my experience.

What do you think?

Be prepared to be amazed at the wonderfulness of first time swapper Franknhurter! I received over a week ago but just opened it Sunday night and am now just getting around to opening it. Garsh, what a horrible swapper I was to pair with a virgin this round. I haven't started yet but I am making something today with the kids that will hopefully go into her box and then I'll start rolling. Anyway, on to the pictures of goodness!

Here it is all wrapped up. Even a treat for the kitty!

She sent a washcloth for each of the kids. A NINNI washcloth! I promise Alice is not stoned. That is just the best picture I could get of the both of them. You guys know how kids photograph.

Terrycloth side of the washcloths and the cat toy that is stuffed with Nip. It's funny, Nip turns my Eddie into a love machine so with wanting to play with the feathers while wanting to be a lover I think this has her confused.

And the grand finale:

My Winter Ninni! Yay! He is too cute. I love him. I am so ready to bust out the proper seasonal decor now.Yay!

Thank you sweet partner! I can tell you are going to be great in future swaps. Welcome to the family!

I think it's wonderful! I wonder if I have a yarn that this will work with. Hm. Thanks for the pattern. If I ever make it I'll let you know.

Help, help, help!  I have brain freeze and totally need some suggestions of things I can make quickly for the stocking!  Got it done (at last!!)  but it is skimpy filled, unless I send a LOT of M&M's!  Please pm me asap!!!!!  

The angels will smile on you for your helping!  Thank you!
No, don't send PMs! Post them here because I'm sure lots of people are having the same brain freeze, not just Margie and her recipient. Wink

I received my stocking package yesterday!!!  All the way from Australia!  I confess, I did peek, but did not look in the stocking, just the mailing package.  Thank You Moonshae!!!  Smiley Smiley
Now that Thanksgiving is past and my kids  from VA are heading home, I will finish doing the package I am making and send it on it's way to Texas.  This has been a lot of fun! 
Wait, I thought you were sending to me If that's so then I should hope it's not going to TX. I just got back from there!

Um, I don't remember where I am in this swap because we just got back from our T-day trip but I'm pretty sure that as long as I figure out the stocking soon I should be sending on time.

I think my favorite part so far has been the gingerbread ninni. Sweet! Well, except of course the package that I JUST OPENED from the fabulous franknhurter! She sure did great for a first swap. I haven't even started yet! I'll post pics tomorrow. Too much unpacking to do.

RECEIVED! But I can't open it until we get back from Turkey. Sorry! We'll all get to partake of what I'm sure will be awesomeness on Monday on my arrival home.

I hate it when my partner sends before I even start! This is the second swap that has happened in in a row. And with us leaving for TX Wednesday and the 3 mug rugs and 2 artist suitcases I have to make before we leave (so we don't have to ship anything to my family for Cmas) I don't think I will start this swap until we get back. Oh yeah, I have my stocking swap to get out by 12/1 so I'll probably want to finish that first too. Bah, I might just skip some stuff and work on this in there somewhere. They are quickies, right? We'll see. I am excited to receive, though. Ooh, I'm the first in the gallery again most likely! I love opening a gallery!
