1  Re: Hand Embroidered Patch Swap Gallery - Send before Nov-27 in The Swap Gallery by stargazersewer on: November 29, 2007 05:56:22 PM
I got 2 patches in the mail in the last 2 days.  The first is a pretty unicorn i'm not sure who from and the second is an awsome barrel of Monkeys from riario.  They are so cute. 
So now here are 2 of my patches that i have sent.  I have a third finished waiting for it's close up and one almost done.  I have got to learn not to do these things right at the hollidays.  However it is really fun and relaxing to embroider all of these. 

This is the first patch that I finished and is in the mail.

And here is the second that I have finished.

I have one patch all embroidered and I have 4 more to go but it will go quick and I have a lot of family time coming up over thanksgiving which means lots of sitting around talking so I will just have all of my stuff ready to go with me and I will work on a lot of stuff.
I will post the pic of the first one soon.  In the meantime here is a picture of Puppies my dog had last night.

Momma and babies are fine.  There are 6 boys and 2 girls so if anyone wants a puppy.....

I just got my Package in the mail from sewinglori and it is awsome.  I was on the phone with my mom, grahairedoldlady when it came and i was practically screamming as I ran down the stairs to get it. hehe.  She was all excited too. 

When I opened my package I was amazed to see not 1 scarf, but 2.  I got both a sewn scarf and a knitted scarf.  It was so cool!!!  I love them both. 
Here are the pictures....

This is the sewn scarf that she made me.  It is gray and purple and yellow and has some really cool buttons on it. 

This is the green scarf that lori knitted for me.  It is a seed stitch scarf.  I think it is really warm a cozy. 

here are three buttons that she made me.  I'm going to pin them onto one of my bags.  They are yellow and purple as well. 

This is the coolest little book.  It is made so that you can open it either way.  The paper is folded into triangles.  It is a very cool little scrapbook/artbook. 
I can't wait to start using it. 

Thank you so much for all of the goodies.

Hi.  I have a confession to make.  i got this awsome package from Ollie last week....And I just realized that I have not posted pictures of the stuff she sent me.  And I am so sorry.  She sent me some of the coolest stuff. 
Here it is....

This is a notebook with a cool graphic of a needle on it.  I work as a CNA and this will come in handy as I always cary around a little notebook to keep track of things at work.  And it is just the right size for my scrubs pocket. 

This really cool set of pot holders is already in my kitchen.  I love to cool and I use these all the time.  I didn't really have any pot holders up until now, I had always used a kitchen towel.  I must admit that these are really nice to have around. 

This is the coolest stuffy ever.  He is a GRUMPY PANCREAS!!!! As a diabetic I must say, that is the coolest thing I have ever seen....My husband thought he was great too. 

To many diseases are treated with yucky pills.  I now have my own HAPPY PILL!!!! This is just so neat.  He is felted wool, needle felted that is. 

These are 2 dish clothes that I got.  Are the sayings stenciled or screen printed?  Just wondering...They are alreading hanging up in my kitchen. 
I also got some cinnimon tea, cinnimon is thought to be good for controlling blood sugar, and some really cool fairy stickers.  Ollie must have done some research because I love fairies!  Thank you so  much for all of the goodies, you really spoiled me.  I love everything in my package so much.

Hi!  So i'm not really sure if this goes here but....look what I made.

I know it's not the best image.  But it is a button...I took a penny and drilled some holes in it to make a button.  I'm going to make some more so I can make a Change purse. hehe.

Hi I got my package from Scottskipper402 today.  Here are some pictures of what she sent me. 
This is a shift dress that she made me out of some vintage looking cotton with carrots on it.  Its pretty comfy and the carrots are actually woven into the design of the fabric, not printed.  I love that look. 

Oh and just incase you are wondering, yes I'm standing on my roof in the rain to have the picture taken and yes it does look like there is a chimney coming out of my head.

Scotskipper also made me this awsome crazy quilted bag.  I love it.  I am the crazy quilt queen!!!

She also made me this really cool neck cooler thingy.  You just soak them in water and tie them around your neck and it helps keep you cool.  Really great for when I'm working at the farm or at the lake.  And a pair of blue earings.  And some Really yummy smelling oil.  I love the blend.  This is a picture of the bag, neck tie and earings. 

Thanks so much for all of my goodies.  The dress is comfy I don't want to take it off.

Hi!  I got my MYB from meganlorraine today.  It is so awsome!!! I actually feel really bad about the ball that I sent here. She spent like mad money on this stuff.  The yarn is Tofutsie and it is a beautiful blue, red, gold sort of colorway. 

There are all sorts of goodies in here.
A mug
a cup with a sheep on it
little finger massage balls
stitch markers
a stamp
a lizar key chain
a really awsome little purse with 2 zippers
all kinds of goodies that I can't remember right now, but everything is in the picture. 
I love it.
Thank you so much.  You really did a great job.

Hi all, I was the butt head that never posted pictures.  I'm so sorry Glitter.  I though that I had and totally forgot about it until today, I was updating myself on all that is going on in the crafty world and saw your post realizing that while I took pictures and uploaded them I never actually posted. So without further adue. (never did learn how to spell adue) 
Glitter girl totally went though my wists like a champ.  I have always wanted to learn how to knit a mobeus loop.  I think they are so neat.  I have no idea how to wrap my mind around it yet, however I will get there someday.  To tide me over until that day she has crocheted me this beauty.  It will be so awsome this fall and winter. I needed a new scarf and living in Maine, I will use it a lot. 

She also took a trip to Magpie in Boston for me and Because I love Embroidery she got me some sublime stitching patterns, embroidery floss, a sticker and some really cool buttons.  everything but the buttons is pictured here. 

The buttons are pictured pinned to these awsome crocheted shopping bags.  I love them.  My husband and I have this pact to waist less and these three bags are perfect.  Rairly to I buy more then three bags of groceries at a time.  I love them.  I have wanted to make some forever but my crochet is not so up to snuff. 

And here is one last picture of all of my stuff in one of the shopping bags.  They really are great.  I take them to the farmers markets and into every store.  I use them a ton. 

Thank you so much glitter girl.  I am so sorry I was such a butthead.  I really do love everything you made me. 
Thank you.  You put a ton of thought into it and I know that it must have been hard because I think at the time I had just enough posts to  join the swap.

10  Re: Wrap pants... in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by stargazersewer on: June 20, 2007 04:02:59 PM
They were a little fun to get into.  And I got a lot of stares because My husband and I shared a room with my Mom and her Boyfriend.  (It is nuts to get your own room in cape cod in the summer!!!)  Anyway here are some pictures of me wearing my wrap pants.  These Pants ars so comfortable.  I don't look comfortable here because My grandmother had just told me what she thought of my weight.  It happens everytime.  She needs to find something to pick at for everyone.  At least I know what's coming.  My sister, who is skinny and a runner, never has a clue what's comming.

I used the salvage edge of my fabric and I didn't bother to hem them.  I figured they would look really cool as frayed corderoy.  Kinda hippieish.  In this picture you can see me in my pants from the side, my grandmother from the back and my sister from the back.

The pool is at the motel we stayed in.  It was really nice and yes I did go swimming despite all warnings from my grandmother that I would look fat in a suit.  I told her no fatter then I already was, so why not.  hehe.  All in all, it was a nice weekend.
I hope everyone else had a nice weekend.
