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.
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.)
