1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Harry Potter Holiday Swap Round 5 Gallery on: December 02, 2016 12:05:12 PM
I've received from Ant Bee, and she's totally spoiled me! Cheesy

First of all the spoiling/extras ... Smiley



A Postcard "Pick 'n Trix" from Weasley & Weasley
A Lovely red bookmark (did you make that yourself, Ant Bee?)
A pack of Mini Play Cards
A "Spot it" Holiday game the Hobbitses want to play ASAP (that will be tomorrow then)
A pack of Haribo (still keeping that safe from said Hobbitses)
A yarn cutter (how did you know? I've been after one of those for AGES!)
A skein of the Christmas coloured yarn used in the trivets/coasters (Sugar 'n Cream)

And the package has 4 Christmas coloured trivets/coasters (and Ant Bee said they're EXTRAS!!)


The small box with Hedwig on top contains the cutest little needle felted Owl ornament!!


And I absolutely had giggles over your card, Ant Bee... LOVED the descriptions and your weekly "Stitch 'n Bitch" you have with Hagrid & Molly!!  Grin

I received from Calabaza today and absolutely LOVE my package!!

She made me a great cushion cover - paper pieced Hogwarts "coat of armor" from Fandominstitches.com . Smiley (VERY dangerous website if you can sew a straight line!! TONS of fandoms... !)



And we found out we both LOVE chuck... so Calabaza's card was a nod to both Chuck AND Thor (Zach Levi playing both Chuck and Fandral in Thor - therefore "For Asgard" with the mashed up Nerd Herd logo! Wink ).



I definitely will keep that card. Cheesy

And I can see a personal swap in the future, if you agree, Calabaza!


ETA - The cushion cover has found a home now.

I've never seen an advent tree like that before and I love it!

It's gorgeous, isn't it? My mum actually made 2, one for my sister and one for me, but we can't find number 2 which is a shame really, but I'm happy I still have this one. My mum would have made them about ... errr... 38 or so years ago?!?! Shocked

Wow, all these people finished already!  I have several stuffers ready and have made good progress on the stocking, but I've still got a ways to go!

Got my shop bought items. Dithering between decorating a felt stocking and making my own now... Shocked And still on track for the handmade items. Smiley

Mmmmh... not that versed in Stocking Stuffers yet as we didn't do that in Germany. However, I had a homemade Advent calendar (my mum did it in her makrame class wayyyy back) which I'm now using for my twins.

I always loved getting smurf figurines etc. Smiley

The pic below shows the makrame tree with part of this year's packages (they're effectively the same things as you'd use for stocking fillers).

Hah. Got caught out in that and did the post in time (HPC changed to semesters instead of Quarters). Ah well, off to more crafting. ;-)

Don't have a problem for two season drop out timing.

On track. Social calendar was added to this week so will be sending Monday as no post office open on Sunday.

Gozer - Thanks! The bag is done with iron on vinyl using my cutting machine for it. Layered up in 3 colours.

Crafting away. Have to see if I'll get more done before send outs, but I'm on track for it. :-)
