1  Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R5 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by meowari on: June 21, 2015 03:53:01 AM
I received from RovingAnarchist yesterday, but I got busy and didn't post photos. The lighting isn't the best right now, so forgive me:

I couldn't believe it when I saw this patch. Besides being an amazing patch, I have long thought about getting this image tattooed on me because it's one of my favourite Edward Gorey images. Maybe it's a sign...

Look at all of the stitching in the face and scarf:

And if that wasn't enough:

A beautiful sugar skull patch! I bet it took forever to sew all of that detail!

Thank you, RovingAnarchist, for being my swap partner and for making me these great patches!
(Sorry everyone has to crane their necks to look at my patches, but I don't know how to turn these pictures. I took two shots at different angles and tried uploading both of them, but they still show up sideways when I post...)

I was so happy to get home on Saturday from an 18 hour drive to find my OTBT from sammylouise40 on Saturday!
I love it!

I pretty much spent the weekend sleeping and unpacking and yesterday morning doing laundry, I'm sorry I didn't post until now.
She went with my pigeon theme, as you can see:

It's going on the top of our bookshelf in the dining room!

I received from Sharalee yesterday! And, oh-my-goodness, are they awesome!

I got a beautiful Celtic triangle patch and the coolest steampunk cat patch!

Here's a close up of the cat:

And here are all of the goodies she sent for me to use on new patches!

Thanks again for being such a great swap partner!

6  Desmond in Winter Holidays by meowari on: December 05, 2014 06:47:35 AM
My friends have the most adorable Great Dane puppy named Desmond. I made them an ornament to commemorate their first Christmas with him. I used acrylic felt, embroidery thread, and sewing thread. I'm not the best artist, but I tried to show his markings the best I could. I wish I had made his chin smaller, but I'm still pretty stoked to give it to them!

7  Giraffe Baby Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by meowari on: May 28, 2014 04:50:25 PM
I had made a baby quilt about 20 years ago, but nothing of the like since.
Then I found out a friend of mine was having a baby and I went to Babies R Us to get some stuff off of her shower list and it was not a pleasant experience, so I decided to make something instead... that something was this baby quilt:

The nursery was a jungle theme, so I used leopard print fabric and muslin for the squares, and I found this peachy-pink giraffe print for the back. I thought the squares were missing something, so I cut a giraffe silhouette out and appliqued it to the front. I have never appliqued anything successfully, so I thought I would try a straight-stitch around the edges instead of a zig-zag stitch. It came out a little wonky, so was about to zig-zag over it, but the more I looked at it, I decided that I liked the wonky line and decided to add more:

I think it looks like I sketched around the outline with thread and I really like the look!
I mistakenly used a satin blanket binding around the edges that was too wide, and it didn't quite work out when I ironed it in half  Undecided , but I'm still quite proud of it!

That makes me want to find out more about tapirs! What a beautiful doll!

Well, I received something equally as awesome from LovelyMiss, but in a completely different style...

Meet Saint Pigeonella:

We did extras for this swap and she sent along the cutest fabric cat, some cool fabric, a pen that I can totally use at work (people are always stealing my pens and this one will be easy to spot if a coworker takes it!), some stickers, and a bracelet:

LovelyMiss has much better pictures than I do, so I recommend checking her post out: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432456.0#axzz2xTpriZkQ

Thank you so much for my doll, she is hanging in a place of honour above my sewing machine!

**I just noticed that my pictures are sideways, and I don't know why. I can't use picture hosting because an ad is covering up the "upload photos" tab, so please follow the link to the post that LovelyMiss put up.**

10  Re: Art journaling and altered journaling along - ongoing - 2014 until ??? in Craftalongs by meowari on: January 21, 2014 10:54:04 AM
I'm back from my honeymoon and ready to get started on my journal!
Here are a few pictures, even though I still want to redo the "binder" part of it:

This is the picture of the bench that my now husband proposed to me at that I doodled one day at work that inspired an idea of the journal.

Here's the journal cover. I used a weird textured, thin paper that bubbled up because I used too much PVA. I cut out a design in cardstock and put it over it and painted it all in a metallic green...

Here is the inside. I bought some cheapy watercolour paper and cut it down to size, along with some cardstock, and I tore apart a free travel journal that my grandmother had gotten on a cruise she went on.

I think I saved every single scrap of ephemera from out trip to use in the journal. I started a watercolour painting one night, but that was the only night I had time to do any kind of crafting on the whole trip, so I'm going to work on finishing that first.

Darn! I just realised that I spelled cemetery wrong... Well, I am from the South, and it is phonetically correct... I'll just crop it and write around the little painting, I guess. Whoops.
