1  Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Gallery 103, 104 & 105 in The Swap Gallery by jemimah on: July 29, 2014 10:50:04 PM
I received a fabulous package from alliekat914 today!!



She sent me a wonderful - and very generous, there's about 2 dozen of them - selection of cards! Gorgeous colours and the designs are perfect. I needed some more understated birthday cards suitable for men, and these are just right. The "joy" ones are especially gorgeous too! And, she also sent some embroidery floss, which is always much appreciated, and one is even glow-in-the-dark! Thanks Alliekat914, that was a lovely surprise to come home to on a very wet winter day!  Smiley

I received a wonderful mug rug and matching bonus coaster from rscowtown!



It's a lovely stylised design, and so beautifully made too!! Grin

Job 26 is a particular favourite of mine (I spent many years studying the book of Job).

He covers the face of the full moon,
   and spreads over it his cloud.
He has described a circle on the face of the waters,
   at the boundary between light and darkness.


Thank you so much rscowtown!! Sorry it took me a few days to post a picture, my whole weekend was taken up with work.

A couple of swap parcels have arrived so I can post pics now.

placemats for luckdragon - first try at stack and slash scrappy piecing, which I though worked great!



VW hoop for luckdragon - patchwork and machine embroidered applique



Did I already post a picture of the stumpwork tentacle twinchie on this thread? for sheepBlue



And a tiny diorama artwork for Im Sew Silly - "Feathers & Chirp Fine Tailors"



I've been having such a fun crafty time lately! Being around craftster a bit more again is very inspiring Smiley

5  Feathers & Chirp Fine Tailors, est. 2014 in Completed Projects by jemimah on: July 19, 2014 02:11:38 PM
I was making something for Im Sew Silly and her daughter for the OWS. She really wanted a small diorama, and some of her themes were whimsical, sewing, and birds. So I made her a miniature avian tailor's shop.



They have a tree for growing their own buttons. I think the portrait on the back of the door is of Great Uncle Chirp.



They have a nice window that opens onto the garden, so they can enjoy the view while they work.



It's very different from most of what I make - it was a lot of fun to do! Smiley

I got a fabulous double package from Grab a coffee today Smiley



It's packed full of goodies!! Two mug rugs in my favourite natural linen fabric with applique, a TON of beautifully made felt cuteness, several glass pendants for crafting with (I like to make pretty bookmarks with these), 2 vintage German Burda magazines so I can practice my German while crafting (special big thank you for these!!), pretty mini sketchbook with Hungarian phrases too (Cheesy), AND the envelope is covered in Popes. Which is awesome.

Close up of some highlights -


Ksznm Eszter!!

Cushion attack!!!!!

My lounge furniture is manky. So were my cushions. But now, I have some new ones!! (and more will come). Now if only I could do something about the lounge suite ....





My friend was having a birthday - he is an introvert like me, and a gamer. I saw this line on pinterest, so I made a version for him (he loved it Cheesy)



(I have another one to sew up for hubby too Wink)

... and these last cushions are bit more serious. My dear, very creative and talented aunty died a few years ago. I inherited a lot of her sewing and craft things. One of them was a box full of a half-made quilt from years ago - several patchwork and hand-appliqued (!) 12" blocks, and a bunch of fabric and cut pieces. I don't know why she never finished it. It's beautifully done, but is a very traditional design in dark fabrics.

It was my uncle's birthday, and I didn't know what to get him (he never wants anything more than a phonecall). So I made up two of the quilt squares into cushions - simple machine quilting, and added a border. I'm very pleased with how they came out - the neutral putty-coloured linen I added seems to work well. I'm undecided what to do with the rest of the quilt bits - may make up a quilt with it, but combine with more neutrals.

8  Revenge of the Stumpwork Tentacle: Tentacle Twinchie!! in Needlework: Completed Projects by jemimah on: July 10, 2014 02:18:45 AM
I was making something for the lovely sheepBlue for OWS. She asked for an embroidered twinchie, and she also had MissingWillow's marvellous miniature crime scene on her list of inspiration. Plus, some of you may remember a previous incident with a tentacle, which I knew sheepBlue liked. So all these things came together in my brain .....





It is made of silk fabric, felt, wire and embroidery thread, and tiny 00 model figures. I mounted it on a 2" x 2" artist canvas (just stitched on, no glue). It was a lot of fun to make!!

Poor little sailors .... there is no escape from the Tentacle ....

Happy 4th of July from wintry Wellington!  Grin

I have been having a great week on holiday. Most of my crafting has been for swaps, so I can't post pics yet, but I did get some of my pics organised for projects done earlier this year. Prepare for pics!!

My hubby got me a new phone!! so I had to make a communicator cosy Smiley



I've also been doing lots of knitting (pattern details here). Smiley











And I turned an old book into a stationery/mail art folder!



And I even made a bunch of cards for swaps, using a beautiful stamp Limeriot made for me. Now I'll have to do lots more swapping to use these up ... Cheesy

10  Book into stationery folder in Completed Projects by jemimah on: July 04, 2014 01:55:25 PM
A dear friend moved overseas and we plan to write actual  letters and make mailable art for each other. For my first mailing, I made her a folder to put stationery in.

I had this great old "the Book of Craft" with a purple and orange cover from the 1970s. Unfortunately, someone had already cut out the best pages... So I felt no guilt at all about turning it into this.



I gutted it and painted it with acrylics, and then sealed it with spray varnish. I turned the title into "the book of crafty arty MAIL". I forgot to get a pic of the interior. It's lined with purple fabric that incorporates several pockets and elastic pen holders. My friend loved it!!
