2911  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Ruffled Rosette Pillow on: October 16, 2010 05:30:06 AM
Well, it's just what it sounds like. You make things for someone else and they make things for you. Usually a theme involved. Go check out the Organized Craft Swap board; they'll explain it better than I could. I am on swap hiatus for an undetermined amount of time. Sad

I feel like I should know what "wisting" is....but I don't! Smiley
You are obviously NOT a swapper.
A wist is like a collection of things on the internet that you have seen and loved and wanted. I think of it as my "wish list." I think mine is linked in my signature.
2913  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Apple Bucket Pin Up on: October 15, 2010 06:28:59 AM
I was in the Pin Up swap and I wanted to make an apron for my partner and I found some apple fabric in my stash and hey, she made candy apples for a living so what better fabric? So I looked for an image that would work and found this. Dude, I hope I don't get in trouble for embroidering it.

Yay! learning to embroider is fun!
2914  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Checker board on: October 15, 2010 06:07:14 AM
Disclaimer: I'm not a quilter.

I found a tute for felting stones at Resurrection Fern and really wanted to make them but I can't just make things to be pretty (usually) so I decided to make a lot of them, dye them in Kool-Aid, and make a checker's board to go with them. For my niece. For Christmas. (mind you I thought of this in like May or June)

So I attempted a mini quilt a couple weeks ago for the checkers board! AH! Not great, but it serves it's purpose AND I don't even have to wrap it. Check it out:

There's 3 different shades of rock per side, but you can tell they are all supposed to be pink/blue.

All wrapped up for Christmas! The ribbon is sewn into the side.

I think I will wist this.
2916  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Fiber Friday 15 Oct 2010 on: October 15, 2010 05:25:05 AM
I have never started one but here I go! I am so excited!
First, the less exciting one: I got some blacks from the Sheep Shed Studio and the last of them have been sitting in my drawer for some time now so I pull them out, spun 'em up, and started to loom-knit a scarf (cause I was excited!) and then I ran out and now I am waiting for more...

AND NOW THE EXCITING STUFF! A lady I know from MOPS gave me some fleece last year right off her own sheep that her dad won't let her wash SO...
I washed it.
I carded some of it (I think I need combs instead of cards).
I spun it.
I plied it.
And since there was still some grassy stuff in there, I set the twist using tea instead of regular water so it hides the gunk and gives it a really nice sepia tone.

and for a better sense of the color:

Disclaimer: I know this might not be all the great compared to some of you veteran sheep washers but I am really proud of this yarn! It has lots of the little tiny bumps of wool and is very "slubby" but that's why I said maybe I need combs?
2917  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Another Death of Rats... on: October 14, 2010 04:34:57 PM
Is that supposed to be the Death of Rats? How happy you make me!
2918  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber Friday (Saturday?) 10.08.10 on: October 10, 2010 03:02:02 PM
Beautiful! I am loving that "Crazy Girl!" Purple and sparkles for me! Funny, I might not have admitted that before having a baby girl...

Morrigan, that doesn't look too squishy but it does look like it wants to be joined into my stash and someday made into something wonderful.

I have yarn to post this week that I am really really proud of but I haven't uploaded my pics yet! AH! Maybe I will get up them up for next Fiber Friday? Remember before when I was saying I needed cards before I got to spinning again? Well, I GOT THEM! You will see next week... So excited!
2919  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: The Dark Tower Swap (signup 9/19/10 - 10/09/10; send out 11/08/10) on: October 04, 2010 04:11:13 AM
I was totally planning on signing up but I think this is one of those ones I would like to create for but not necessarily receive for, if that makes sense. Also, since I missed the Fill a Stocking swap I've decided to be on swap hiatus so.. I'm sorry! I hope it's great!
2920  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: October Monthly Odd Holidays (MOH) (SOs Sep 22) on: October 04, 2010 04:08:34 AM
Thanks everyone for a fun swap! I think this is the last MOH for a while but if anyone else wants to start them up again, let me know!

I posted feedback, but my child hit the enter bar before I could leave comments for everyone. You all did great though. How did I do as an organizer?
