Finally, I have something to post in this craftalong! I have been meaning to join for sooo long. If I've done anything incorrectly, someone please let me know!

Prompt:  March - Roaring Twenties
Team: Randomizer!
Bonus Points: NA
Project Name: Miss Fisher Hoopla
Project Link: NA
Brief Description: I crafted this for my partner in the Fandom swap (this has also been posted in that gallery and the hoopla along!) it is based on Phryne Fisher, the lead character in a great Australian mystery series set in the 1920s. Miss Fisher has a gorgeous bob and always wears the most wonderful hats!

And a photo of Miss Fisher for comparison!

I am so excited about this package!

And excellent hoop with one of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite Neil Gaiman books. (Well, part of it, the full quote is about three pages long...)

I had requested a box to hold my Gloom cards, a brilliantly morbid card game I love. Her husband designed the box and it fits my deck PERFECTLY! Here are my cards happy in their new home, plus my favourite character card, who's face is on the box.

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE PIECE oh my gosh I am so in love with it. The stitches are so perfect, everything is so perfect!! An excellent amazing cross stitched Time Warp banner.

And Harvey was kind enough to make a couple of little pieces for my boyfriend. It's his other girlfriend Harley Quinn! I've wrapped them back up, so he gets the fun of opening them.

I made this hoop for Harvey in the Fandom swap. Maybe more human nature than nature... but it still counts, right? Millions of tiny stitches went into this one, and it is definitely the longest I have spent on a single hoop (at least 15 hours if not more...)

Wow what an excellent gallery so far!! I love how creative everyone is. I really love the Sherlock doll, the Sailor Moon bag, the Baker St box, the Spock hoodie and the Hufflepuff hutch.

Harvey received from me today (unfortunately one piece broke in the post. Luckily it was the 'small' item and I have the supplies to make another!) and will be posting photos tomorrow. But I really want to share the piece I am most proud of!

I spent SO LONG stitching her, I torture myself by making teeny tiny stitches. But I think she turned out really great. I hope Harvey likes her as much as I do! (it is supposed to be Miss Fisher, from Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries) I hope Harvey can take clearer photos than me, as you can't really see all the detail.

I can't wait to receive my package from her and to see what everyone else has been crafting!

5  satin stitched stag head. in Needlework: Completed Projects by moriarT on: March 04, 2015 05:54:19 PM
It is not very often I complete crafts for myself, but with this piece I was super motivated (read: sick in bed almost all week and literally couldn't do anything but stitch!) and I am so excited to get to keep it for myself!

I started off by seeing something similar on pinterest, finding a stag head silhouette, sectioned it off, decided on my colour scheme and went from there. I've never done this much satin stitching in my life, let alone on one project!! I definitely noticed my stitching getting a lot neater as I progressed, though I still think I have a long way to go to get it as smooth as I want it to be.

I really like the delicate white on white background, it stops the empty space looking too empty, without detracting from the embroidery.

This is my first time posting a completed hoopla in this craft a long! I had actually started it before looking in on this thread but it fit the prompt perfectly. I've been off work sick the past few days and have been in bed stitching like mad all day every day! I've never done this much satin stitching before in my life, let alone on one project. I am super happy with how it turned out and think the colours all work really nicely together.

I got a great package from Bow and Sparrow!
First up,this great fabric moth. I think I am going to attach a pin to it and wear it as a brooch!

These wonderful little curiousities came in a glass jar that unfortunately shattered on it's way too me. It's a little blurry but I think the conjoined skele twins are my favourite.

She also sent me a great mixed media piece that unfortunately also broke. It will be an easy fix, but I will leave it to Bow and Sparrow to post a photo of how it is supposed to look.

Thanks Bow and Sparrow for a great first package, and welcome to the very addictive world of swapping!

Oooohh I love that circus elephant! What a cutie! I love seeing everyones hoops, so much collaborative creativity!

I received mine from whenindoubtsew today! I am totally blown away and in love!

First of all... the hoop I sent her.

A simple line drawing of an old TV.

Knowing of my love for horror and all things creepy, Kylie went with a hoop inspired by the film The Ring.

In all its glory!

3D hands! Coming out of the TV! AARRRGGHHHH!!!! From underneath:

And above!

This is awesome! I can't stop swooning! Thank you SO MUCH whenindoubtsew for agreeing to be my partner and creating something so spectacular for me!

I have been horribly late posting my pictures after it not working the first time around... hopefully it works...
I am so in love with everything hoppy sent me! First up, this most excellent goblin hoopla! He is so freaking cute (creepy?) He has pride of place above my bedroom fireplace. Sideways pic apologies. (Technology and I don't get along very well..)

And here we have an upside down pic! This awesome handmade fold out book with gorgeous paintings of poisonous plants! Hoppy - I am envious of your painting skills, I can't even draw stick figures...
In the corner you can also see the sweet wee fairy wing I am going to put on my next dreamcatcher!

Finally an upright picture! These awesome paper mache(?) antlers! I am yet to find a place to wear these (I mostly just stay at home...) but I am so in love with these! This is an old photo I took the day I got them - my hair is green now!

I have been terrible at keeping up with this gallery... my apologies for being unable to write why I love each and every craft posted in here, what a talented bunch, I am so impressed with all the work that has gone into everyones packages! I received mine from hoppy a few days ago. I can't find my camera charger so my terrible phone photos will have to do for now.

Okay so I don't know how to rotate it... maybe just stand on your head to look at it? An awesome accordion book (is that the right word?) full of beautiful paintings of deadly plants! Such a well constructed book, I hope hoppy took photos or I can charge my phone to share better pictures!

I had requested antlers in my questionnaire, but wasn't really expecting them. I was so excited and surprised when I saw them and put them straight on! I believe they are constructed out of paper mache, they are nice and sturdy but not heavy so they are perfect, I want to run away and live in a forest wearing only these for the rest of my life!

Once again the photo doesn't do the craft justice. An AMAZING goblin hoopla! He is so dark and creepy, just the way I like my goblins! Beautiful stitches and perfect colours.
I also got a lovely wee fairy wing that my phone refuses to photograph, I'm not sure how hoppy made it, I suspect she has magic powers! I think I am going to use it in a dreamcatcher, my boyfriend and I have been having really bad dreams when we sleep at my house, but not as his so the dreamcatcher I made to hang over his bed must be working... I need one too!

Hoppy - Thank you SO MUCH for being my partner in this swap, I am absolutely in love with everything you made me. I am glad my package has made it's way safely to you and I look forward to seeing the photos you put up! I hope you like the things I made even half as much as I like mine. Thank you again. And a big thank you to the spectacular gozer and all her co organisers who made this swap happen for us, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ALL this swap has been an absolute blast!
