ooooohh this could be super fun!  I'm not great at embroidery, I'd like to make something either applique or possibly 3-d...hmmmm!

I haven't had to post pics of my own sent swap items before, but my partner messaged Monday and said she'd received on Saturday, since pics haven't been posted I guess I should...(?)  I didn't take any pictures showing the fully stuffed "jar" (a handmade bag) because I didn't think I'd need to have my own pics. I just took a few of the handcrafted items, which I'll post.

The "jar" (partner's likes include: lime green, black cats, faux bois) - the lime is not quite this bright, the 2nd photo is more accurate on color

Handmade stamps based on her Pinterest pins (fox, glasses):

Tiny bunny with pink felted ears based on bunny board:

and matchbox:

I packed a bunch of found/bought/thrifted whimsy into the bag along with the handcrafts.

W00T, I received an AMAZING Mug Rug from Linda (alwaysinmyroom) today!!!  I don't know how she knew that I was hoping for a slightly larger mug rug (I kept thinking I needed a bit longer real estate to accommodate my snacks!  Did I mention that in my Q? Hmmm I don't think so... She's PSYCHIC!).  It is so perfect, in so many ways!

I mentioned that I really loved LesliesHappyHeart's style of happy colors and techniques, so Linda did an homage to Leslie, which I think is spot on!!  Cheesy

But, before I gush further, let me share...   Ta da!!!

I love, love, love it!  And oh my gosh, the sewing is so perfect... I am really jealous of Linda's amazing skills.  I had NO idea that the two sides were made up of scrappy pieces until I read it in her accompanying card - the seams were so perfect and flat.  I really love the spiral for where the mug goes too - I just love spiral designs in general, and the spiral thread is so perfect to mirror a round mug.  Oh wait, the last pic was the "action" shot, let me show you!!

And the back is gorgeous too - I <3 the fabrics, and the designs showing through, it is totally two-sided!

I particularly love the tiny teacups stamped throughout - it makes it so perfect for afternoon tea  Cheesy  It's a bit late in the evening, but I see I have some delicious Meyer Lemon tea that is caffeine free (YUM!)... Off for a relaxing sip, and maybe if I'm super careful I will set my mug down!!   Grin

Thank you so much, Linda - my new mug rug is awesome.

P.S.  I am going to have to hit you up for some sewing tips.  I mean, look at those perfect bindings.  Seriously!!!!  No, seriously!!!!!   Smiley

Wow, so MANY awesome rugs!!!  LOVE the 3-D lotus Cheesy

So funny on the one I made - the "back" started out as my idea for the front, but I just wasn't happy with it - it wasn't enough... I kept looking at that green fabric and thought... This looks like water.  Pond water.  And my other batik orange fabric jumped out at me as koi.  I had no idea I was crafting for a Pisces  Cheesy  but the universe conspired to bring me the right inspiration for my partner!!!!

I RECEIVED today from ollieorange, yay!  It was a lovely surprise after a very long day at work.

I was so excited that I totally forgot to get a picture before I 'unpacked' the jar, and of course you can never get the genie back in the bottle!! lol!

Here is the whole lot; you can see the jar and decorated lid in the background:  

Ah, here's a better shot of the jar, washi tapes, adorable Hello Kitty patch, and slew of fun stickers:

A closer shot of my favorites - a TON of adorable figures!!

A sweet felted heart to add to my heart collection (<3!!), desk diamond, mustache ring, and a funny shot of three tiny piggy butts  Cheesy

More whimsy awesomeness...  LOVE TINY THINGS!!!!  SQUEEEEEE

Thank you so much, Cindy (ollieorange) - I am SUPER STOKED!  I love all the tinies, and the washi tape and stickers are AWESOME for my postcrossing cards and penpal letters and such!!   Cheesy

Hmmmm.... Now I may need one of those Tim Holtz shadow box things to show off the cuteness...  !

Oh my, so many clever and awesome mug rugs since I last popped in !!

I LOVE the super clever owl and amazing cathedral window rugs, RhymeswOrange!!  So beautiful and each has a little extra special aspect that shows the thought you put in.

Love the Alice spade - at first glance I thought it was a mushroom shape, which I think also goes along with the Alice theme (?) - seems like I recall mushrooms in most of the drawings and such...  Very cool stitchery arrangement, one of a kind and really cool!!

The tree form and Japanese fabric are so calming and meditative.  I would love to stare at that mug rug as I sipped my tea.

And the Alaska mug rug - what a great creation and so perfect!  I'm impressed that there is Alaska fabric to be had to customize to this level.  Very cool Smiley

I sent my mug rug on it's way today; can't wait to see all the upcoming additions to our gallery!
