21  Re: Hand-carved Stamp Swap--Round 5 Gallery! :D in The Swap Gallery by Koreena on: February 18, 2014 06:25:06 PM
I received from Jexxican today!!!  SO VERY happy with the SET of stamps she sent Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Please don't mind the upside-down Arigato or the terrible form I used when stamping these ~ Was in a mad rush and just wanted to get the photo up asap...  Her craftsmanship is flawless (as always), and I am looking forward to using all of these stamps!

Jexx - Thank you!!!  Love these!  Hope you like yours, too Wink

Wow~ Love the yarny goodness that has been posted recently Smiley  All 3 packages are great!  I FINALLY picked up my package from the post office and am happy to share this beautiful baby blanket from LadyBugsandBumbleBees with all of you!

I absolutely love the colours for my new nephew, and the yarn is so soft...  Really, really nice ~ Thank you again my friend!

23  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle round 11: Signups 1/14 -2/11 Sendout 2/19 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Koreena on: January 29, 2014 10:03:54 AM
Here is the entrelac cowl that I have made for the Raffle ~ It is made with some really soft wool yarn that I love (love, love).  Have been told that I'm crazy not to keep this one...  Hope you guys like it as much as I do!!  Entrelac is surprisingly easy (for how tricky it looks) ~ I recommend trying it out, if you're looking for a new way to knit.  I love how quickly each block works up... Good 'on the go' project for sure.

Loving all of the other projects that have been posted so far Smiley  Feb 12 is actually my bday...  Going to be fun to learn about my surprise gift, too!

I'm in awe of all of these great packages! Wow!  I especially love all of the hoops, jewellry & what a great idea for the laundry soap  Wink  Never bad to have some good looking men helping with the chores!

I also sent a hoop to my partner, along with a bracelet & a Dean stuffie.  ...  She requested these things among others wish list, so I hope she was happy.  She let me know that she received a few weeks ago, so I'm going to go ahead a post some photos for her.  The questionnaire said that "Yellow Fever" was her favourite episode, and the scene where the cat scares Dean is her favourite part, so I watched the clip she provided and found a jpeg of his face

I translated it to felt/embroidery and created this hoop Smiley

Then I made a Dean stuffie (complete with necklace Wink) out of felt

Apparently I forgot to take a picture of the bracelet...  It was a crocheted embroidery floss bracelet with a black band and gold star charm in the centre.  Very simple, but I was happy with how it turned out.

Here is a picture of both pieces together, and one of Chubbs trying to keep the Dean doll Smiley

I hope you like them!  Thanks for organizing spikefan Smiley  Appreciate your work!

Hi everyone!  Sorry for taking a while to post these - I completely forgot that FairyHazeDesigns asked me to post photos of the stitch markers that I made for her...  Her themes were Fantasy, Color, color, color & use your imagination.  I combined the three - Here they are!

I saw these fairy charms at Michael's and new I needed to use them for her Smiley

I used embroidery thread and made up a simple 5 petal flower pattern, added 2 leaves & then used a chain for the loop.  Here are a couple of close-ups with my really ungreat camera:

Also, since I'm posting, here's another shot of the food I made for Ramona_Q ~ I really loved these & am planning to make more for me Smiley  Again, I used embroidery floss & a tiny hook to make/modify existing food patterns (found on Ravelry).

Watermelon slice, cherries, egg, ice cream, strawberry & olive:

Hope you like them & thanks again for a fun swap!!

27  Foxy Baby Outfit in Crochet: Completed Projects by Koreena on: June 03, 2013 04:57:03 PM
I think this might be my first non-swap completed project! My great friend is pregnant and has a forest theme going... She asked for a fox baby outfit for her baby's photos- so cute, right? Anyway, I couldn't find a pattern that I loved and so made up my own Smiley

I didn't write out instructions as I worked, but will try to update with a pattern later if I make another set.

Thanks for looking!

I received two incredibly awesome sets of stitch markers from my partners Fairyhazedesigns and Ramona Q!! They both went with my 'glass' theme... I love seeing different interpretations in swaps -> Probably my favourite thing about swapping!

Gorgeous wire wrapped sea glass (ocean glass?) from the coast of BC- collected by FHD herself while hiking- Love, love, love!!

And super cute & perfectly crafted panda & blue glass bead knit markers from Miss Ramona Q Smiley

Thank you so much Ladies and big thanks again to Smeddley for organising!

See, THAT is why I was so excited to see PFD in this swap. I knew she would amaze me!

Those felt goodies are so much fun! Brie, ha!

I know, right???  Smiley 

I nearly forgot to post something that I've made with the GORGEOUS yarn that Jexxican sent to me for "winning" this month!!  Check it out:

Isn't it awesome??  The pattern is "Button Up Your Cup" on Ravelry ~ Super quick, cute & easy.  This is the 2nd one that I've made so far...  the other one went to my derby wife for her birthday, so no photo.  This yarn is so beautiful, I don't even know how to describe the colour variations...  Just incredible.  I had to make something that I would use every day so that I could look at it all of the time.  Thank you again Jexx~

I'm such a complete delinquent these days  Embarrassed  Sorry for the delay in posting these amazing, lovely, incredibly beautiful jewelry pieces from pheonixfiredesigns~

First off, she sent me a necklace that I have been secretly hoping & wishing for for many months now...  The Cagefree Bird:

I put this lovely piece on immediately when I received it (2 weeks ago!!) & got about 200 compliments from co-workers in a single afternoon...  Talk about a coveted item!  Isn't it great?  The length is perfect, I can see me wearing this far, far too often  Wink

Next, she spoiled me with the most beautiful Tree of Life that I think I've ever seen!  She used a lot of beautiful natural stones and gems, all in colours that I adore:

I am always in such awe whenever I see the things that phoenixfiredesigns creates and was completely stoked when she chose to make soemthing for me in the Feb swap~  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  So very sorry for taking a while to get these photos posted...  I have no good excuse other than I've been ridiculously busy for too long now.

Have fun in what's left of the March swap & in the April swap, ladies~  I'm going to recharge, slow down & hopefully see you in June  Grin
