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!
Ok so I am currently out of town visiting family and I received an awesome package from our wonderful organizer Audania1. It was so cool opening this swap in front of my family and explaining what I have been actually doing when I talk about craftster Audania and I have so much in common, it really was a perfect match!
The first thing I saw was this gorgeous purse. This was perfect timing because I only brought my wallet with me and had planned on getting a purse here because I didn't realize how much I need to carry around on this visit.....so BAM, I've got an awesome purse to run the Austin roads with! Audania actually customized it as an embroidery bag (which I will totally use it as when I get home to my usual purse) that will fit a 12" hoop, scissors, needle, threads, and anything else I want to stuff in there...which will be a lot!
I'm usually really good at taking great pics, but with all the craziness during the day here I only get late night time alone so pleeeaaasseee Audania, if you have better pics put them up. I'm pretty sure this one is blurry, it's hard to see on my phone and they are uploading weird for some reason . The left side has patches for Winterfel, Jaqen H'Ghar, and Tyrion. The stitching is so delicate and all different fonts, so cool. Super funny that we both made Tyrion patches from the same material!!
The center has patches for Daenerys, Ygritte and Jon, and the Lanister motto. There is also a horse button for Khal Drogo, looooove
The right side has patches for Syrio, Arya's Needle, and 7 Hells!
The inside of the purse has embroidery accessory pockets and is lined with a really neat brown fabric (the same as the strap), it gives it a comfy feel
The back is made of this super awesome brown scaly leather-ish material, representing Daenery's dragons. I know it's a super awesome material because I totally have this material too, and I absolutely looooove it!! Yup, twinsies
Next, I got an awesome Arya hoop, I can't wait to hang this!
Finally, I got a wine cork trivet...yeeeee! It represents Tyrion of course . I laughed when Audania mentioned that she didn't drink all the wine to make this trivet....but I totally wouldn't have judged, I love me some wine. Even better....the center cork is a moscato, which is one if my favs
Ya, too bad we live on opposite sides of the states, we could have been dangerous together! You were really easy to craft for too, I love these swaps...ready for round two! Thanks for hosting Audania, and bigger thanks for making me such an awesome package!
I got an insanely awesome package today from Rockmygypsysoul! I signed up for this swap for my daughter and her boo Bay Bay, they are two peas in a pod, and I am soooo glad I did because my daughter was completely thrilled. Seriously, she's never even been this excited opening Christmas gifts...really is making me think we will be having more of a crafty Christmas this year, Jada really loved how personal it was. Everything was individually wrapped and labelled, but neither one of us could hold off long enough to take a picture of that lol. Ok guys, prepare yourselves for some serious spoilage!
First, here is a pic of my daughter and her BFF Bay Bay (they are always snuggling)
And RMGS painted this (one of my favorite techniques from her!)
Jada was squealing all over the place over this....she jumped up and down and was just so in love with you at that moment RMGS, it was awesome!
Next, the cutest stamped metal best friends necklace...check out the tiny bone and heart bead...oooohhhh! Jada said I have to make Bay a matching one for his collar
Jada took a pic of Bay Bay watching her open all her goodies
And then, oh my gosh, Stamped (or individual painted?) notecards with Bay on them! Jada looooves writing and drawing so she snatched these up quick. I had to calm her down and beg for one to frame
Still not done y'all! Then Jada got a big piece of adorable stamped dachshund fabric that we can use as a hanky or sew into something else. Jada loves dressing up Bay so she wants to put it on him, but I really want to sew it into something more special for Jada so we will discuss that more later lol. Also, Jada got a stamped bookmark (we loooove bookmarks in this house!) and the card was stamped as well.
Ok, this one is still making us laugh....Bay in a top hat and suit!! YES! I mean really, who doesn't love dogs dressed as people. Jada always says "Bay Bay is sitting like a gentleman" and she wants me to sew up a bow tie for him so this was huge on my wishlist for her and RMGS totally hooked us up. I can't stand it, it's so awesome.
Ok, so I joined the swap for Jada but I really hoped for a little something of my snuggle buddy Chi Chi
And yet again, I got my wish
Nobody but me loves my Chi (because Chi loves nobody but me lol) and now I get to display my little nugget anywhere I want, I am so in love with this I have no other words.
Rockmygypsysoul you totally spoiled my girl and I'm running out of ways to tell you how much we are in love with your skills and how much thought you put into this package! Thank you so much for making these kind of memories that we will actually be able to keep for a lifetime, absolutely LOVE every single bit of it. I hope to see you in the ongoing swaps in the next few months
