Well the tracking shows that my partner's (eclecticdreamer) package arrived on the 4th and I haven't heard from her, so I thought I would go ahead and post pics EclecticDreamer said in her questionaire that she would rather 1 bigger thing than a few smaller ones since she is tight on space....that worked out perfectly because I ended up spending quite a chunk of time making her a zippered Teesha Moore inspired pouch of her favorite shows (it's the size of a piece of computer paper---which I used as a template)
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! I received two really cool Firefly patches from CraftADDchick yesterday. I had so much fun stenciling a few of the patches I made, so I really loved getting the stenciled Blue Sun. And wow, she painted fabric to make the background of the firefly ship...it's a really cool paperish texture, I'm still checking it out . I must try some fabric painting soon. And check out the tiny detail stitching on the ship...that took some patience! As usual, I love my patches!
I just received a pile of really cool patches from noodle-bug. It's funny how small and petite she makes her patches, and mine are like thick monsters in comparison...i always do the stringy/wonky edges, and her patches are finished with a neat fold and stitch. This is why I love these patches so much....with all the different techniqued TM patches I have collected, they all fit together so awesomely, serious personality in the mix So on to bizniz
A few patches inspired by one of my fav movies Fantastic Mr Fox! The tail is so durn cute and Ever since I saw the movie, I'm always saying what the cuss! Love them
Confession....I'm not actually sure what movie/show the eye patch came from...I'm going to smack myself when you tell me. It does feel very familiar, either way, I think it is really cool! Ohhhh and noodle made her other partner a light up tardis and must have felt my jealous desperation because lookie lookie...my very own light up tardis!! My daughter squealed and tried to run off with it, ummmm no, don't you know I will cut you kid!? Coolest thing EVA!
Thank you so much noodle-bug, it was an awesome package to open up! Very creative, loved them all
I just received an awesome embroidery pouch from anna.wahnsinn. I am laid up on the couch with what is starting to feel like the flu, so this was an awesome little treat to get today. Forgive the pictures, it's nighttime so I had to find a bright spot in the house.
Here it is folded up with an adorable lil owl button. It's actually double folded, if I had an embroidery hoop in there it would be double the width when closed/folded.
Here it is opened. It has so much storage, I'm giddy! 3 large pockets to fit supplies and hoops...2 button loops to hold extra hoops in the center....and on the right a felt needle holder and awesome pouch. I really wanted to fill it up and take a picture that way, I'm so excited to organize my embroidery stuff in there...but getting me off the couch to take pictures was about as far as my sickly self can go tonight

I just received an awesome box of funny from my partner DaphadillyArt today...yeeeee!
First, I almost fell over when I saw this awesome felt hoop of Ritchie from the Royal Tenenbaums...loooove him, poor adorable thang
Next, ohh this cracked me up...a Brick Tamland (Anchorman) quote mini hoop. I was so excited to get Anchorman stuff...I didn't have it on my list so Daphadilly really dug around and paid attention to what I wrote in my pinterest...I'm a lucky gal
YES! TM patches that are rocking my world! From Orange is the New Black, Anchorman, and Arrested Development. I can't stop laughing!
Finally, my very own analrapist mug, which I will be using every morning from now until eternity. Tobias was an analyst and therapist...voila
Daph, you really made my day, thank you so much! I love every bit of it! Off to hang my hoops
I am loving this gallery, so many patches to oogle over! I've got a few more awesome patches to add to the pile, from one of my partners Cabaute
First, check out this cool packaging, I love the little fabric scrap bow
Ok, so my partner was a little nervous about making me patches because she hadn't seen many of the shows I had in my list but man, I was squealing happy, you did an awesome job! I got two Arrested Development inspired patches First, a Gob patch. I love looking at that man's hilarious face and the quote is hilarious!
And then, a Tobias "I just blue myself" patch that cracks me up! How creative to use a blue fabric silhouette and metal circles for glasses. Are those snap buttons or grommets or something else? Love!
