This is epic!  You did a bang up job on the string art...wow...such a generous size and so nicely done...about how long does it take to do a piece that large?

Thank you! It took about 25 - 30 hours. I didn't realize it was going to take that long when I started, and I was too stubborn to give up.  Grin

Here's a couple of photos I took of the string art after I stopped crying. I'd been looking at it up close for so long I'd lost all perspective.





Sometimes you really need to step back. Scale makes all the difference.  Smiley

Scooby Doo! That is so awesome! I wouldn't have come up with that quote in a million years.

I might have gone a little overboard on that. I wanted to make sure it would be legible. (Piece of friendly advice to anyone who thinks "Oh, that looks fun. I'm going to try it." Don't. It's very frustrating, and by the time you get done doing it, you won't have a clue if it's good or not. Smiley)

I received from Onyxnox, and it turns out I wasn't the only one who put way too much time into this swap! I got spoiled!

First up, this gorgeous card with what is pretty much my life's motto on it!


Then this wonderful art panel, which is going up on the wall right by my sewing machines where I can see it every day.


I mentioned that I just moved to a new place and needed something to jazz up my furniture. Voila, this amazing Sons of Anarchy cushion cover.


And then, this incredible stamped copper bracelet. My photo doesn't do it justice. The quote is by Ani DiFranco and says " If you're born a lion don't bother trying to act tame." Love it! It's going to be a permanent fixture on my wrist from now on.



This was the package that never ends. She also made a wonderful tote bag with a Michael J. Fox quote on it.



See? Spoiled, spoiled, spoiled. That's what I am! Very glad I restrained myself from ripping her package open as soon as it arrived. I forced myself to wait until I delivered hers, which saved me from having a complete swap anxiety meltdown.

Onyxnox, thank you so much! You rock! (Also, if the piece I made for you is too big or not exactly what you wanted, there are 2 complete balls of yarn there, in maybe 5 pieces. There's enough to knit a scarf, hat, and mittens or a small sweater.)

I received from meowari, and she really knocked my socks off!

She made an amazing portrait of the coolest rockers of all time, Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead. I put it next to the card she made with a photo of Lemmy so y'all can see how perfect it is!


She also went with my "eff it" theme as well. Too cute!

Then, another awesome patch. It's a drop spindle!


And then to top it all off, she sent me a giant collection of patch making supplies. I couldn't possibly be more spoiled!


Thanks so much for being such an awesome partner!

[I'd like to point out that I wasn't suggesting Onyxnox was actually going to laugh at me. She's not that kind of person!]

Yeah... hand turkey swap, anyone? Wink

There's an extension? Hallelujah!

This swap has been false start after false start for me. So much fail I've begun to feel like a craft disaster reality show. I'm lucky I haven't burnt my house down!

Having a super talented partner makes for awesome packages. Having a super talented partner makes you worry you can't possibly make them anything as cool as what they do for you. Ever stalk someone and get that feeling of impending doom in your stomach like when you know you're about to be laughed at? That was me looking at Onyxnox's posts and pinterest.

I might as well be making a hand turkey with crayons....

In short, I have a lot to live up to, and am grateful to have a partner that makes me push myself to improve.

I received a pair of awesome patches from gala_apples! For my metal theme, she chose a System of a Down song for inspiration. Boom!


She also made a wicked patch of one of my personal mantras, which will be sewn onto my battle jacket as soon as I get home. (Contains swearing.)

Thanks so much, gala_apples! I love them both!

DeathToLems, that clock is awesome! Way to set the bar high for everyone!

I was a bit overwhelmed when I realized there weren't any guidelines as to what the actual craft should be, medium-wise; it certainly makes for a great gallery. I'll be working my butt off tonight to get Onyxnox's package done. I may have chosen something a bit too complicated after several fails and false starts. Here's to triumphing in the end!

The button bird! That little door that opens! I'm blown away by the awesomeness of this gallery.
