163  Re: A "Buggy" Swap (bug themed swap) in The Swap Gallery by irid3sc3nt on: February 17, 2006 02:47:21 PM
I received from Trifarina today!!!  So so so lovely!!!  It's 10 degrees today with a low of -8 so this really brightens my day!  Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you! Cheesy Grin Kiss

If you have pics, Trifarina, post yours!  I'm going to take pics now and post them.

My stuff came in this cute plastic bag of a lotus-position slug.  And inside were bug stickers (with a note to ignore the wasp--I don't like wasps, they always sting me and I don't do anything to them!)
Two beautiful embroidered? bugs.  A damselfly and a luna moth.  They're as big as my hand and beautiful.
An aqua tote bag with an orange cicada embroidered on the front and vibrant orange hawaiian-type fabric for the lining.  The aqua fabric is super super soft.  And a matching zippered pouch (the zipper is orange!) with an embroidered lightning bug on it!

I absolutely love my beautiful swap package!  It's sooo amazing!

164  Vinyl Snap Bracelet from Supercrafty in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by irid3sc3nt on: February 15, 2006 06:37:09 PM
I modified the vinyl snap bracelet from Supercrafty and here it is!
It's fabric engulfed in yellow-clear vinyl with a shrinky-dink honey bee wedged in the center.  Putting on the snaps was somewhat frustrating as I had to go outside and down to the concrete parking lot of my apartment building to be able to get somewhere when hammering.  The hard floor in the kitchen obviously wasn't enough. 
This was made for the "Buggy" Swap.  I'm planning on making more with different fabric, vinyl, etc.

This is the next one I made.  It's for the video game swap.  It's for a boy.
Here are the layers:  black vinyl on top, green-clear vinyl, zelda triforce, clear vinyl, black felt.  This one is a little over 3 inches wide and about 8 or 9 inches long.  Because it was so wide, I used two snaps.  I could not go outside for this one, because it was 10 degrees out (whereas when i made the other one it was 53 degrees) so I placed it on our coffee table over a corner, so the impact from the hammer would travel down the leg to the floor and not crack the table.

165  Bzz Hat from Nation in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by irid3sc3nt on: February 15, 2006 06:21:36 PM
I finished this hat last week for the "Buggy" Swap.  My partner liked bees, so this hat was perfect.  I made my own bee buttons out of sculpey and hand painted them with acrylic paint.  I didn't put them on the hat, I wasn't sure if she would want them on the hat or some of them or what.
I used Sirdar Denim Ultra Mega Chunky yarn.  It's a blend of wool and cotton and feels wonderful.  I used one skein but could have used two.  Knit on dbl ptd needles.

166  Re: Modified One Skein Wonder - It Has Long Sleeves! Instructions Added in Knitting: Completed Projects by irid3sc3nt on: February 15, 2006 06:13:40 PM
I finished mine for the Ongoing Stuff I can Make round 2 swap.  About a day later, I received another request for one! 
I did not use the smaller circular needles for the sleeves, though.  I chose dbl ptd needles.
This was made with Cascade 220 yarn.

167  Re: Wine Theme Swap - Gallery in The Swap Gallery by irid3sc3nt on: February 14, 2006 01:52:00 PM
Duh, I received a PM from boygirlparty two days ago saying that she received and I totally spaced that I had pictures!  Well, here they are!  And if you take any action shots, boygirlparty, post em up!

Since she likes dessert wine, I picked out some dessert recipes that were supposed to be good with wine from epicurious.com.  They actually took me a while to make.
I embroidered a wine bottle in the style of pointillism (think Seurat).  It's tiny and cute.  I was very impressed with myself since I hadn't embroidered before!  Go library books!
I made a felt journal with the title "Musings" on it.  For those introspective wine-induced moments.

And wine charms, of course.

I received my finger puppets and bookworm from Bobolink last night!  They're soo cute!  My cat tried to take off with the worm, but I nabbed her. 

A blue cat, a brown kiwi, and the green bookworm (bookmark!)
Thank you, Bobolink!!!

169  Re: New here... Any one in Iowa? in Iowa by irid3sc3nt on: February 08, 2006 08:29:51 PM
I just found the cutest mints at JoAnn Fabrics in I.C.!  They're called "The Girls"  and are made in Canada by "The T Company"  Here's what I found from NY: The full line of The Girls can be seen online at www.mhslicensing.com/TheGirlsArt.htm. T-shirts (from $38 to $42) can be ordered by calling (914) 834-3554 or emailing thetcompany@aol.com. The Girls products are sold at Realm in Larchmont (scarves and bags), What's What in White Plains (T-shirts and bags), and Wendy Gee's in Larchmont and Chappaqua.
Here's the two I picked (Knitting Girl and Crafty Girl), but they also had Spa Girl, Scrapbooking Girl, Quilting Girl, and another one... I can't remember.  Just wanted to share the love!

i recieved my oragami paper today...
i went to take pictures and the program freaked out my computer and made it shut off.
ALSO i dont know who sent it...

but i DO want to thank you very very much... the paper is so pretty (and ill try to get my camera working so i can post pictures of earrings when i make them  Wink )

It was meeeee!  I liked the one with the little flowers, it looked very traditional and had something like 24 sheets in it in four different colors.  Then I went for the fun stuff that shined (which you can't tell that it does in this picture).
Hah, I spend sooo much time at my local library photocopying from craft books... I now have two binders with projects in sheet protectors.  It's like I've made my own book!  I thought you would enjoy the projects I picked out.  I totally encourage anyone to check out the books at their library-- lots of ideas!
