I have to thank you, Icekibby, for putting me onto the idea of a wooden finger labyrinth. I've never heard of such a thing before, and now I have to make one for myself. And your photo of the little desk is lovely - it looks so life-like there!

Impchild, thanks in advance for more photos. This is the excuse I've been waiting for to cull my jeans drawer!

The pocket belt? Beyond brilliant! I may never throw away a pair of jeans again, at least not with the pockets intact. I would SO love another photo, Impchild, if you ever get your upload issues solved.

Good point about USPS Christmas shipping dates, Mandykaye. Since we need packages to arrive four days earlier than they're calculating for, really December 10 should be the latest send-out date, shouldn't it?

Icekibby and I finally got together today to swap, and boy, have I been spoiled! I was secretly, quietly squealing with joy, right there in the doughnut shop!


Here's the whole package, including the wonderful embroidered, appliqued and embellished Day of the Dead bunting, two packages of locally-made incense and some skeleton chocolates.




It's hard to pick favourites among the pennants, but here are three especially wonderful ones. Check out the tiny bone-shaped gem on the pirate skull! Cheesy


Icekibby painted this wonderful jointed Pan paper doll, which like the Pan poppet that MamanTattoo made me, is anatomically complete as a god should be. (And as all Icekibby's paper dolls come with accessories, he has a phallic wand.)


And he's accompanied by this Horned God bookmark, which doesn't appear in the group photo because I already had him in a book.


But in case the puppet and the bookmark weren't enough of Icekibby's wonderful watercolour painting, there's this eight-page booklet of Samhain spells and recipes. Every page is glorious, but I'll only post a couple here.





The back page is this truly extraordinary Green Man painting. Aren't the eyes unsettlingly real?

So thank you SO much, Icekibby, for your wonderful work. You astound me more and more each time!

Oooh, Yule Warmth! I like that idea! And I have to admit I'm more inclined to a smaller swap too, not because I do a huge amount of Christmas crafting, but because I seem to have a zillion other projects already piled up for the winter.

Send-outs somewhere around December 12, perhaps?

This sounds great. If it's going to be three smalls, how about three specific themes, such as Food, Celebration, and the Wheel of the Year?

Oh Edel, this one just isn't ever going to be easy, is it? I hope you get your upload issues solved - it's been so long since I sent that journal it's going to be a surprise to me, too

As a fan of HawkeyesGirl's soaps, I can almost smell the pumpkin soap though the screen! And what a nice bag that is - it looks a perfect size.

Some swaps need a bit of guidance, but many subjects seem to generate crafts spontaneously. I have a feeling that this could be one of the latter. There are so many great images of Holmes, Watson and the other characters, for example, that can be incorporated into anything from potholders to embroidery to Christmas ornaments. The characters themselves can be interpreted in many ways: poppets, drawings, polymer clay, needle felting, arumigurumi, etc. And of course there are also the classic Holmes props: pipe, deerstalker cap, magnifying glass, hypodermic needle, Persian slipper, etc. Endless possibilities there, too. And Holmsian clothing doesn't have to be limited to deerstalkers - it's a perfectly good excuse for other kinds of Victorian fashion, too.
