I saw this on Pinterest and knew that it would be perfect for Smeddley in the Enchanted Forest swap.  And voila, here he is!

I made this for my partner in the Princess Bride swap.  You can't really tell that it's a hoody, I just focused on the stencil.  Undecided

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Princess Bride leather cuff & Iocane powder necklace on: June 02, 2014 07:08:53 PM
Now that my partner has received, I can post these!  

I was pretty pleased with how this turned out!

I liked this a lot, too!  I think I'll make one for myself as well!

14  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Chicken Feet by Moonlight on: April 27, 2014 07:45:59 AM
I made this for my partner in the Fairy Tale swap. It is based on the Russian fairy tale of Vasilisa the Beautiful.  Baba Yaga's house is done in chalks on text of the story.

15  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Mermaid t-shirt on: April 10, 2014 10:43:45 AM
I made this for my partner in the Common Ground Swap. We both like fairy tales, and this shirt was based on a picture she had pinned.

I made this for a swap, and I think it turned out well!

The clock has struck midnight, and it's time for our dancers to reveal themselves to their partners!

Senders, please post your pictures! 

Receivers, if you wish to post action pics or additional photos of your loot, please wait until your partner has had a chance to reveal themselves.

Yay for the gallery!
18  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Angel needed for secret Masquerade swap!! on: March 25, 2014 08:47:41 AM
AN ANGEL HAS BEEN FOUND!  Thanks to all who responded!

This is for the Fantasy Masquerade swap, and it's a bit different.  Partners are all secret, nobody knows who is sending to them, and senders will be posting pics (AFTER all participants have received), revealing themselves to the group kind of like a masquerade ball.

Requirements are one medium mask or mask-related item, and either 2 smalls or one additional medium.

Swap link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=431162.0#axzz2wzR59otT

Once an angel is found, I will send the info for the person to be crafted for.  Time is really of the essence here, since feedback is delivered after the reveal, which doesn't happen until all have received.  Swapping is pretty busy right now, and I suspect I'll have lots of people anxiously awaiting feedback so that they can join other swaps.

20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pi quilt on: March 17, 2014 06:55:32 AM

My 17 yr old son is a bit of a math & science nerd... he told me a year ago about a quilt he wanted, with the number Pi written out across it, and of course there's no place I know to buy something like that.  So I was forced to make it for his bday.  Roll Eyes I'm ridiculously proud of this quilt, so please forgive my rambling and copious pics.  I made the top from a sheet I bought at Walmart, and the bottom was a larger sheet from Goodwill.  First I drew a grid of 5 inch squares across the top. (Five inches coz that's what the bag for the batting said the maximum quilting distance was.) Then I created stencils that were 5 inch squares, centering the number on the stencil so that it would just fit into a square on the quilt, no further centering required. 

Then I drew all the numbers on and hand painted every one. 

All 238 of 'em. 

Who knew that painting would make me feel like I'd been doing squats all day?  Maybe I earned a nicer backside! LOL!  Once all the numbers were painted on and dry (took 4 or 5 days to paint 'em all, BTW), I put the quilt bottom, batting and top together and stitched along the grid on my sewing machine, then bound the edges with contrasting quilt binding. Voila!  New quilt for a very happy birthday boy!
