That sounds like a serious elvish rights violation  Shocked Grin

But has she given them clothing?
114  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: January, February, March 2015 Birthday Swap! (SU 2/8 - 3/8) on: February 16, 2015 01:38:47 PM
Hi! Im Kathy and I was born and live in Oklahoma although I grew up in Illinois. Im a retired middle school English teacher, but because of my certifications Ive also been a long term sub at the early childhood and elementary levels as well as a special ed. paraprofessional.  I love being around kids, so Ive appropriated my sister-in-laws grand and great-grand children to spoil since I dont yet have any of my own. Im a very social animal: Im chair of the membership and fellowship committee of my church (think parties and celebrations), belong to a Dutch oven cooking group, am an officer for our local Friends of the Library group, serve on the board of our Literacy Council, am an active member of a crochet club, and belong to our county genealogy society. The rest of my time is spent reading voraciously, crafting incessantly, and baking sporadically (and watching movies with my hubby his passion, not mine).

I like clear bright colors (think rainbow), but also love dramatic contrasts (black or white plus a color). My favorite colors are blue, green, purple, cream, silver, black, white. Steam punk, vintage, and shabby chic styles are growing on me, but in general I prefer less fussy styles. I like things that have function more than most purely decorative things, but there are exceptions as youll see from my boards and list.

Im allergic to roses and evergreens in any form. I dislike creepy or gory things, snakes, and spiders but other than that I dont have a lot of strong dislikes.

Feel free to raid my Pinterest boards or profile for ideas beyond what I list here. I've intentionally stayed generic to encourage you to do your own thing. Take the posts for inspiration but give them your own twist. www.pinterest.com/ancientofdays

-a knit or crocheted hat, prefer beanie or beret styles
- a scarf
- a cowl
- fingerless gloves (my hand is large: 7 wrist, 8 palm)
- handspun yarn

Sewists
- small or medium zippered bag to hold things in my purse
- tote bag
- potholders
- reusable journal cover for a composition notebook
- mug rug
-small wall hanging
-pincushion
- bib or tunic style apron Im a messy cook!
- casserole carrier for 9 x 13 rectangular dish

Papercrafters
- gift tags for holidays or any occasion
- handmade journal, any size
- paper embellishments youve made

Jewelry
- necklace, 16-18 length, silver

Other crafts
- handcarved stamps, any design for my cardmaking
- any of my favorite quotes in any medium (Quotes I Love - on my Pinterest)
- Christmas tree ornaments
- wind chimes
- sun catcher
- bookmarks
- A SURPRISE

Supplies

THANKS AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EVERYONE!

Whew, what a day!  Hot, humid winds have been gusting up to 100 miles per hour all day.  Power out for 8 hours (had to craft by daylight), and some wind damage. 

Glad the wind has stopped and power's back on.  Now I'm hoping for rain, it's been dry for more than a month.

P.S.
I know I get no sympathy for the heat.  But it's still uncomfortable; I've been hot and sweaty all day, but our water is pumped, so without power, I couldn't take a shower!

I live in Oklahoma where we also have those kind of temperatures, so you definitely get my sympathy for the heat, but as for the wind, the only time we see that kind of speed is when it's circulating as a tornado. Hard for me to imagine straight winds of that power. Sounds like our East Coast hurricanes.

I decided I needed a little more variety for one of my projects so picked up a supply while I was at JoAnn's today. And I found out that Scotch brand Extra Strength Adhesive Roller works extremely well to hold together some radically different substances. Until now I've only used it to hold various weights of paper, cardstock, and embellishments together. This opens up whole new avenues of crafting! Grin

DncingDreamer, I've seen a ruffled skirt made with layers of rose petals sewn to a fabric base. You could do the same thing to make a petal scarf, tote bag, or purse. Or find a Girl Scout troop and give the petals to them for craft projects. The object is to destash, but that doesn't mean we're limited to crafting in order to accomplish our goals. Sometimes it just feels right to accept that a tool or supply has served its purpose and let go.

quaggy--the block is fabulous!

I know this is a bad thing to say, but I hope you never run out of stash...Grin.

Love it!!!!  Sad thing is every once in awhile I think one day I will be gone and my son will probably set fire to it all!  Ladies if I every get sick I just may have to get all your addresses and ship you each a big box of supplies!

My daughters just threaten to bring in a semi to haul all my crafting tools and supplies off when I die. But at least they're willing to wait until I'm gone.  Grin

Love the varigated scarf, AIMR! Haven't tried to crochet a houndstooth pattern, but it looks like something I need to add to my crafting list. Hadn't thought of using washi tape on a project that large either. Hm-m-m-m! What do I want to decorate?

UTM, if that polyclay heart is a first attempt, I know we're going to be blown away as your skills progress. Great job! Lana is so talented. Looking forward to meeting her (and you!)  in Canada next summer.
