1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Common Ground Round 4 Gallery!! on: July 28, 2016 04:47:17 PM
Hi everyone! What a gorgeous gallery.

I received my package from Gozer last night. I wanted to get daylight pictures...my phone works well but I see a noticeable difference during the day.

SO! oh my gosh. What an amazing package!

She sent me these beautiful bags made from fabric we had in common. Incredible! The sewing is amazing and I knit...many things at once...so the more project bags the better. These will be great for sock projects. I cannot WAIT to fill them up. And the pen cozy for the journal is incredible. I have always wanted one of those! And the beautiful purple and turquoise pens...Its funny. I just finished a shawl in these exact colors!

And she sent gum and pens and an amazing toy for my son. He loooves it.

And this apron! We both love purple and I love aprons. Its so amazing. The patchwork isnt a fabric...she actually made that. I dont know how she gets her patchwork so flat. Its amazing. The stitches are perfect. Thank you!

The straps are so long...I love tying around the front!

Close up of the stitches...

She drew this amazing unicorn necklace because we both love unicorns. Its horn is shiny Smiley

And that would be all and it would be fine, right? I would think so. But no...she sent more. LOOKIE!!!

A patchwork skirt! I love patchwork and its amazing! Elastic in front and drawstring. I want to live in it forever.

Wine glasses and arrows in black and white because thats pretty much all I wear and I love archery and wine!

The inside is as nicely sewn as the outside. Even pretty bias tape hemn!

And the back is adorable. It bunches all up when its tied!

Ok. I have posted alot of pictures. But its amazing!! Just one more!!!

Thank you so much, Gozer. Your package goes out tomorrow. I feel like I should include a big giftcard in it. You totally outcrafted me!

Ok, Gozer. If you get in the car and I get in the car we can both meet at Bunny1s in like 2 days, right?

Im close to done. Its all finishing touches now. But there is this one last little thing I want to make. I will probably be a last day shipper <3 Its been a fun to craft swap but it has flown by!

Lindy that shirt is amazing. Love the shark!

Freakie..HI!!! That sheet is awesome. I tried to make a crib sheet once for my now 7 year old. Did not look nearly as good as yours. There was alot of tucking in. LOL I was new to elastic.

I have been away knitting and teaching myself to dye yarn. I was considering dying some up for an etsy shop but figured I should work on developing a style. Its been a really fun journey. I have more yarn on the way. And more colors. So awesome!

So I have a big catch up post for here. Smiley

I crocheted some fingerless mitts and a cowl. Its in a bulky blue and brown acrylic yarn. Worked up super fast.


I fabric painted a celtic heart onto this book bag.


I knitted this hat. Its colorwork in acrylic yarn. So much fun!

These are felt danish woven heart ornaments on a cardboard background.

This is a red box that I painted and then applied star shaped glitter. I love this glitter. Everything should have star shaped glitter on it, IMO.

I got this idea from KittyKills pinterest. I tried to copy but felt is always harder for me than it looks.

This is some Christmassy fabric garland.

This is a little plastic bauble ornament that I decorated with some glitter and ribbon. (Yep. More star shaped glitter)

I crocheted this dishcloth. Its lily sugar n cream in a seashell pattern. It worked up super fast and it feels nice and sturdy.

Then the undyed yarn arrived. I have been elbow deep in acid dyes. Here are a few of my favorites so far!

This one is light aqua with a grassy green speckle to it.

This is a glitter yarn that I tried to make look "galactic"

This is what I dyed over the weekend.

There is some varigated purple glitter in the back on the left.

And there is a "sunset" themed ball.

And in the back center is just a hot mess. I tried to make it shrimpy pink with some black speckles. My goal was "shrimp on the barbie"...but the shrimp burned. WAY too much black. So I tried to fix it with a nice dip in some dark purple dye. Its not a total loss. It will make some nice warm socks. The colors are a little masculine. Blues and mauves and browns. Maybe for my older son for Christmas? Cheesy

I love the one on the front left. Its purple and fuscia and it turned out very vibrant. Im thinking shawl?

Yay! It arrived (and I survived the weekend here in Dallas...crazy times, my friends. Crazy times! LOL We just hunkered down and hung out with family)
Crochet is my first language so Im pretty proud of how that hat turned out. There was a very good chance it could have ended up fitting an american girl doll or having just NO stretch. Or huge gaping holes. I feel so lucky that it turned out the first time. The yarn luck was with me.

Ohhhh Christmas gallery!!! *grabs popcorn and waits eagerly*

Kittykill...I need that ELF cross stitch. That is just perfect!!!! And what a beautiful shrine. So so pretty!
