1  Re: Half-a-Hoopla Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by moriarT on: September 22, 2014 12:08:40 AM
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!

MoriarT, you'd love Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book. Cheesy



I do!!! Very much so, such beautiful illustrations and such a fun story! That book actually helped inspire my halloween costume last year!

Those of you in the current round of the hoopla swap will have seen this already. I stitched this up for my partner in the swap and am really proud of it! I used a chain stitch for the lettering, satin stitch (first time - nailed it!!) for her hair, appliqued her dress and back stitched pretty much everything else. The hoop was backed with the same fabric as her dress. I'm still quite a bit of a novice stitcher so I was super happy with how this turned out. Thanks for looking!

6  spicy chicken stuffed sweet potato in Recipes and Cooking Tips by moriarT on: May 04, 2014 11:46:26 PM
My boyfriend and I love cooking together (most of the time... I'm a chef and can get pretty annoying..) the other night we made something exceptionally delicious so I decided to share!



We microwaved the sweet potatoes first before wrapping them in foil and oven baking so we wouldn't be eating at midnight. The chicken was cut into little chunks and marinated with my super special spice blend (aka, I went through his spice shelf finding anything and everything that tasted good!) Chicken was fried with garlic and onion, a little worcestershire sauce, fresh thyme and diced tomatoes. Then I threw in a can of kidney beans and got it delicious. The salad was red cabbage, fennel, fresh chili, loads of coriander and lime juice. Super fresh and crunchy.

It was topped with greek yogurt and cheddar cheese and MY GOODNESS it tasted amazing. Just typing this up has made me hungry for it again...

So many awesome hoops - Alice, TARDIS and Lost (which I am fully convinced I need to watch now - maybe watching all episodes back to back will 1. make more sense and 2. make me go crazy!!)

moriraT - I am hoping your hoop gets to you soon - it was a bad time for me not to send a couple of days earlier  Undecided

It arrived today! And it is oh so amazing!
Thank you so much whenindoubtsew, this is such a perfect hoop, it makes me feel so cozy, and it is already nestled up on my bookshelf.




All the detail is amazing, and I adore the sparkly silver cobwebs! The fact that we both made each other black haired girls in appliqued dresses with their backs facing us made me giggle!

8  first ever dream catcher in Completed Projects by moriarT on: December 14, 2013 10:11:06 PM
I wasn't sure which section to post this in...so misc it is!

My boyfriend has been having really bad nightmares, so I decided to craft him up a wee dreamcatcher for part of his christmas gift.

I had never made one before, and I faced a few problems but I think I worked out most of the kinks. One tricky thing I couldn't get quite right was hanging the feathers/beads/etc so they would sit exactly the way I wanted them too. It isn't perfect, far from it and I am a bit nervous about giving it to him (first christmas together! first handmade gift!!!) but I think he will really appreciate it. Well, I hope it does.

I only snapped one awful photo on my phone, if anyone wants to see a clearing picture I can try find my camera and take another!


The main colours are black, dark red and dark purple. There is a little bit of white and brown thrown in with the feathers and beads and the silver charms - a heart shaped key and padlock.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed looking, I enjoyed making it.

WOW so much amazing things in this swap, I am seriously getting nervous that what I made isn't up to scratch, I have been thinking and thinking about it and I really wish I had done things a little differently. I was a little rushed to finish it and as a result some bits aren't as neat as I would have liked... my first swap has definitely been a learning experience.

My awesome wee thing from lovesclutter arrived today!!!



It is a super cute leather and wire spider cuff! lovesclutter was worried I had sent her incorrect wrist meaasurements but it is a perfect fit - told you I have tiny wrists! It is the perfect colour, my favourite shade of red! (my hair and boots are also the exact same colour!) I apologise for the rather terrible photo - if you have a better one please post it!

Despite my worries that my craft isn't quite good enough (is it against the rules to remake and send a 'better' package?HuhHuh?) I have have had a great first swap - thank you everyone!

Speaking of halloween treats, I thought I might share a picture of the cake I decorated for last halloween!

I haven't done a whole lot of decorated cakes, but this one is definitely the one I am most proud of!
