Wow, you guys are going to try to re-read the books for the swap?! It took me something like 15 years to read them the first time! Granted, there was a lag in the writing of them, but still! That's a lot of pages!
I'm still totally in on this one too! Also, that was my quota of exclamation points for the next 2 weeks, blown.

I second KittenMittens' response. Repeated, semi-light cuts. The metal ruler really helps-I always slice into plastic ones, and without the ruler, I am incapable of a straight line! In fact, I need a non-skid backer on the ruler or I can't even hold it still. I'm kind of uncoordinated...

I'd be interested, for sure!

I did a picture frame of exposed corrugation all stacked & glued once, and I got pretty good straight cuts with a new Xacto knife and a metal ruler. Once they were stacked, some imperfections could be ignored, though. My biggest problem was doing the miter cuts- I never did get the angles perfect to fit really cleanly. Beyond that, I don't know. If it's a small piece, you might try one of those guillotine style paper cutters if you have access to a sharp one. They're pretty expensive.

Good luck!

I finally suckered my husband into going out to the Maryhill Museum this weekend- so excited! Besides that, I have houseguests & whatnot for the next few weeks, so I might not be able to make the 6th/7th, but I'll try!

That's awesome, teag! What a great idea to make the clay. I think I'm starting to look forward to Round 3!

Oh yeah. I'd be in. I don't have the time to organize (and I'm a little afraid to, anyhow!) but this is a deep freakin' well to draw from and I can't resist.

I'm glad you like it, Amazing_784- that was my first attempt at applique, hence the really super heavy seam on the non-tree side! And I apologize that the interior pockets might not be so, er, useful. I should have put pleats in! Also, the brown bracelets were just leftover from a big bunch I pulled apart for their stretchy cord.

Okay, here's my haul! (excuse the crappy photography- the weather shifted on me.)

First up, a cute black and white box


Which contained extra jewels


From the making of another latching wood box (love the sparkles and the jewels!)


Detail shot!


The inside is lined with corduroy, so I can keep jewelry in there without it sliding around


Next is a cute little rag bag


And a really pretty applique/patch flower


(taking a breath)

And 2 bandanna headscarves in some of my favorite colors


And finally, a fantastic purse!


(other side) I didn't get a great shot of it, but there's really cute, wavy stitching around the opening. I love the choices of fabrics and colors!


Inside- 6 very usable pockets!


I love that we both made bandanna purses!

I had such a good time with this swap. Thanks for being a great partner, Amazing_784, and thanks for being a great organizer, Pops!
