Wow! Looking at the stumpwork makes me want to redesign my project. So gorgeous and so beautifully well done.

I'm impressed! You did a great job on the uniform!

I'm taking part in a Dutch Oven cookout on Saturday - - if we don't get rained out. We really need the rain though (our part of the state is more than 7" short of our normal rainfall for this time of year = drought), so getting rained out wouldn't be all bad.

Did get both designs charted today, so may be able to start stitching tomorrow evening.

Yeah! I've received! The first photo is just slightly larger than real life, but I wanted to show more of the details, so I'm posting an enlarged close up, too. The necklace is longer than it appears in the shot. The leaves are actually a beautiful spring green and the beads appear more golden in reality, but the camera seems to have washed out the color. Tapestrymlp stitched the petals over a fine wire so they're shapeable and stand up from the surface.



I was so lucky to have Tapestrymlp for my partner! I know I'll be wearing this necklace often and am sure her work will receive a ton of compliments! Thank you so much!

Mine went in the mail on Monday. I was ready to send Friday but I had necklace issues - the necklace chain I originally purchased proved to be poor quality so I had to set it aside and go find another. I'm happy with the finished result though - I worked too hard on the pendant to skimp on the chain! I can't wait until it arrives. I'm like an impatient kid on a road trip ... is it there yet?

Updated to add: I just checked the USPS.com site and the package is being delivered today. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Got it! And it's lovely!!! Will post a photo as soon as I upload the shots. POSTED! Get your pinning fingers ready 'cause it's gorgeous!

Check the thread. Adrienne posted her photos there and I think that's where you both commented. Cheesy

Yesterday I received a great package from adrienne_bowers. We've been swap partners before, so we decided to send extras.
Group shot:

The quilted backing for the crocheted, pink washcloth.

Four hand carved stamps and the cute containers they arrived in. I LOVE handcarved stamps!

The gift that had me squealing - lots and lots of roving and directions for making a spindle so I can make my own yarn - all of it packed in a personalized tote bag.

A felted owl and a tiny box (pansies are some of my favorite flowers). This is the second felted owl I've received in swaps, so he'll have a friend to keep him company.

A close-up of the stamps and two of the clothespins.

A very large doily that definitely took more than an hour and will probably find a home on the antique buffet I inherited from my maternal grandmother. Grin

A pair of vintage boxes in which many of the things were packed, a bag of candle wicks, and a cute plastic bin.

An amigurumi pattern book - - - - written in Japanese! Fortunately I can read the symbols used in the diagrams and one of my daughters can read some of the kanji. Think I'll be able to figure out all the patterns. Not bad for French-Italian-Scottish Americans!

Everything is wonderful but the roving is what keeps calling my name. Think learning to spin my own yarn may have just moved to the top of the "Things I Really Want to Learn to Do" list.
Thank you so much, Adrienne! I'm ready to do this with you again!

Adrienne, check inside the pouch. There's another vintage style project hiding inside. Spoiler alert: there are even more vintage style crafts hidden in the balls. And except for the letter 'A' and some of the fillers in the crackers, everything came from my stash!

Everyone's receiving such pretty things! I don't wear jewelry often, but those bracelets and necklace are very cute and are in colors I love.

Nice job on the embroidery, Blupaisan!

Broomstick is one form of crochet I've never tried. Maybe I need to add it to my list if I can use it to make cuffs as pretty as those.

Really like the owl cup holder and the owl findings on the stitch markers.

Am doing two  3/4" stitcheries because of how I want to finish them. Am pretty sure of my first design and it shouldn't be very hard (even on 40 count silk gauze Grin), but the second one is going to be a real challenge. So many details to simplify so it will fit on a max. of 30 X 30 grid.

And my partner has already finished?! Jiminy Cricket, that's fast!
