1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: 12 days of Christmas MINI swap gallery on: January 07, 2009 07:02:48 PM
wow, everything in the gallery looks great!!

i have pics to post up from day 7 onwards..i know i've been slack but i've been working like crazy.  when you work two jobs in retail christmas isn't a holiday at all!!  Tongue

so, the last of the smalls was a blue and white crochet bookmark:


now, onto the mediums:
a punnet of knitted strawberries!  admiteddly for about a second i thought they were real strawberries but then realised my partner wouldn't have been silly enough to send real fruit in a swap lol!


an embroidered patch with a butterfly.  i'm thinking i wil use this to embellish one of our plain boring calico "enviro" shopping bags.

and two placemats with cross stich embroidery



some lovely scrapbooking paper as well as a scrapbooking magazine


for "hello kitty day", a knitted hellokitty purse with a matching coin pouch


and now for the large items:
a gorgeous hand beaded pin cushion.  the beads make a bird pattern and there is a pair of bird shapes sewing scissors attached.  Sansa said this was the item she found hardest to part with and i understand why, it is really beautiful!!


and on Christmas day:
my favourite item, an Amy Butler weekender bag!!  the fabric is gorgeous, blue and brown is my favourite colour combination!!  and it will be the perfect size to take to uni on days when i have take my laboratory coat!!  for an idea of how big it is, i used a pillow to pad it out and make it stand up for the photo


thank you so much Sansa for such a great swap!!

eep, it's taken me a little while to get my pics up.  today was my first day off since monday last week so i've been pretty busy.

anyway, here is my loot so far Tongue

Day 1: three lovely beaded star decorations.  the photo doesn't show it very well but the beads catch the light really well making them really sparkly!


Day 2: a crochet frog pincushion.  he sits on a little  lily pad which attaches to an elastic wristband.


Day 3: a cute fabric zippered pouch and...

a crochet hair scrunchie.  It looks really blue in the pic, but it's more purple in real life.


Day 4: an elastic bookmark/pen holder (which my sister and I both initially thought was a head band lol)

A little fabric pouch with two pockets, here is another pic of how it closes on the front:

and a lovely fabric covered notepad.

The notepad and bookmark are matching fabrics.

And for today: a fabric yarn "bucket".  It has four dividers to hold different sort of yarn.


Lol, it is taking large amount of self control for me to not open everything at once! :p

Just checking in....wow everyone seems to be off to a start already, I'm still brainstorming ideas! I think I'll have to go supply shopping sometime this week.

this sounds like fun - i've always wanted to participate in one of the the 12 days of xmas swaps but the original version sounds like way too much work and would cost an arm and a leg for postage.  i'll fill out my questionnaire later today.

eep, i'm jumping onto this thread a little late here, but i just wanted to say "me too!", i'd be interested in this. last exam is on november 10 so i should have heaps of spare time to craft something, so i really don't mind what size item we are crafting although i think the previous ones i participated in (card + small gift) worked well.

I only see one of the earrings with the transparent beads....did the other one not make it?  I hope not, that would be really embarassing to send someone one earring lol!!  Let me know and I'll make another one asap!
Apart from that, I'm glad you liked everything.  Your cat is really cute too!!  Smiley
