I have received!!!! I have to apologize for the delay in posting. I picked up my package yesterday; but went on a business trip today. Finally I have time to share with you what I received!

It was andilites first swap and I highly recommend her as a partner! She really sent me the most awesome package. I don't think I could pick a favorite piece.

When I first opened the box I found a note and these cool Stitch magnets. They are already on the fridge.



Next I opened up this fabulous Doctor Who ornament. At first I figured it was an extra (extras sometimes are not based on the swap theme); but andilites tells me that they sell Doctor Who stuff at Epcot in England. I am not certain of that; but I was certainly happy to get it!!





And then there was a Stitch needle book! I told andilites that I am in the process of making new project bags and this book will go in the one made or the Stitch fabric.







And finally, I opened this. One of the questions was whether or not you collect anything. I don't collect any Disney items; but I collect ceramic Starbucks cups. This is the ultimate Starbucks cup.



Thanks again for swapping with me andilites! I would be happy to swap with you anytime! And thanks to audio for hosting and pairing me with your sister.  Grin

Good day everyone!

I really like that hat and scarf set Jennie! Seeing your smiling face made me smile. Thanks!

Project Name: Mom's Mixer cover
Project Page Link (if available): Not yet.
Brief Description: This is actually finishing up a WIP. Last year I had researched patterns to make a cover for my mom's mixer; and was going to make one for my bf's mixer as well. I found the fabrics I wanted, decided on a pattern and.... Undecided  You know how it is. They have been sitting there for over a year now. Last night, as our apartment looks as if a fabric store exploded (I'm in the process of making myself a purse, wallet and a messenger type bag) I decided to finish these up. After doing some top stitching, I decided to add some woven interfacing to give it some weight. So I ironed that on and was able to finish my mom's. The bf's is sitting there waiting to be put together tonight. Since I finally finished one, the second one should be a quick thing...right?  Roll Eyes Grin

Abbeeroad - Love that EPIC sign. Totally cool. And your trading cards make me wish I had done the swap. Love the t-shirt quilt. The tie dye is pretty awesome. I really have been wanting to do a crafting night with some locals. I need to get out of the house once in a while gosh darn it! Love the modern twist on the dreamcatcher.

Ant Bee - Really like that raspberry yarn you used.

TechnicolorAquahea - Love all the colors and energy in your work! That elephant is super cute! So are the Hello Kitty coasters! I really love the skirts you've been making too. I would love to work at a fabric shop...and spend all my money at said fabric shop.  Grin Your bff is super lucky. That sign is rad!

seeuudee - That scarf is super cute! I love the ruffle.

Mistress Jennie - Oooh. Those colors!

And...posting my assignment...

Project Name: HP themed coasters
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=450150.0
Brief Description: I don't know if embroidery in general or embroidery combined with felt would be what I classify as my "favorite;" but both rank up there high.  I've made four other sets of felt coasters and I know it is one I think is a lot of FUN to design and make. I would like to think I am getting better at it; but sometimes the tiny, fiddly pieces (Hedwig's eyes/feet, Dalek's bumps) super difficult. I hope to someday get a cutter like the Silouhette that will make cutting stuff like this super easy. Also, I hadn't done this in a while, so my lines around to add the back were not the nicest. I use a split stitch on both sides.

5  Harry Potter themed felt coasters in Needlework: Completed Projects by fatewineroses on: September 08, 2016 11:44:10 AM
So, a while ago, I made my Mom some Harry Potter Coasters.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438507.msg5297969#msg5297969

After giving them to her, she decided that they were ART and not to be used as coasters. Recently, she said she needed coasters. My arguing that she already HAS coaster was met with  Roll Eyes and  Angry. Lesson learned: Don't argue with your mother. *sigh* I asked her what kind of coaster she wanted and she went  Roll Eyes Angry "Harry Potter of course!"

So I made these. I really like how they turned out. Not sure if my favorite is the snitch, the key or Hedwig. I sure hope she doesn't decide these are ART too.  Roll Eyes

I've also made a Doctor Who and a Zentangle set. Each coaster is made with four layers of craft felt (sometimes a wool blend). I embroider the design pieces to two layers of felt and then stitch on a back. I usually stitch all around the background (did not do that for the Hogwart's crest) so that it make the coaster very firm.

Please count me in noodle-bug. I purchased it for my mom; but she lives too far away to borrow it from her.

My last partner finally received, so I can post now! Yay!

Project Name: TM Patches, pt. 2
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=449804.0

Brief Description: Two patches for Wulf for the TM Patch swap. I commute about twenty minutes on the Bart to get back and forth every day. I carry a first aid kit that acts as my project bag. I would say that about 75% of the stitching on these were done on the train or not at home.

7  TM Patches, pt. 2 in Needlework: Completed Projects by fatewineroses on: July 29, 2016 10:56:35 AM
I was lucky enough to be partnered with Wulf for the recent TM Patch swap. While stalking him, I found a wonderful painting he had pinned of Harvey Milk as a saint. I was doing two patches and had already decided to use his "cocktail hour" theme for one patch; but the other was wide open. While in the process of making a decision on the topic of the second patch, the Orlando shootings happened. I had to do Harvey.

If you don't know who Harvey Milk is, he was the first openly gay person to be elected to office in California. He held a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. He was only in office for eleven months when he and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated. The picture I used was from his campaign and the quote I used was one of his most famous quotes. I struggled with the design and it went through several changes in color, fabric, placement, size, etc. I was very happy with how it turned out.

Oh. And I just read this morning that the US Navy intends to name a ship after him! How awesome is that!?!?!
https://news.usni.org/2016/07/28/navy-name-ship-gay-rights-activist-harvey-milk

 

Cocktail hour around here in SF is all hipsters and techies paying $18 for a single drink. Totally not my idea of a good cocktail hour. I wanted to do a vintage theme and immediately thought of the artist Shag(http://www.shagthestore.com/home.html). I absolutely love his style and he's definitely retro. But the color scheme really didn't work with the desired palette that Wulf gave. So I found this one clip art that had the "Cocktail Hour" and "Where the smart people meet" script; but the rest of the image didn't work. I found another image I liked, then put them together. I was going to go completely black on the stitching; but towards the end I wanted the "Cocktail Hour" to pop. I felt it needed some serious color. I played with a couple options and then gave them to my boyfriend for the final vote. He was super proud that the color really worked! I ask him for his opinion all the time and he balks. He's afraid to be wrong. I keep explaining that I'm not looking for a "right" answer; just another eye/opinion. He's finally getting it and loves giving input!

The stitching on this was kind of tricky. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get all of the hors d'oeuvres stitched so you would actually know what they are supposed to be!



I'm very happy that Wulf liked them both.

Wow. I love those cat plates!!! Totally awesome!

I have received from rjannelle!!! She sent me the most awesome package! It came at just the right time, because the day was just..one of those days. Getting a package like this made it turn pretty epic.

The box was stuffed pretty much from top to bottom when I opened it. There was a card on top that mentioned spoilers, so I set it aside. Then I saw this mug rug.



And on the other side...



I'm not sure how she did the text; but it's pretty darn awesome. My bf likes it enough that it might get relegated to a hot pad at home vice taking it to work. But first I need to hide it while my mother is visiting this weekend.  Grin

Then I pulled this out. It took me a bit to get it open; and unfortunately it broke in transit...



I must have pinned a thousand little pincushions of little houses on hills. I never, ever would have thought to put the Burrow on the hill. Robyn, if you have better pictures of this, please post them. It is such a fantastic piece, my single picture here does not do it justice AT ALL.

After I sat and stared at my new pincushion, (you know I wasn't even crazy upset that the cup broke. I can totally get another cup.), I pulled out what I thought was the last item. This quote, if you didn't know, is Dumbledore speaking to Harry in the Half-Blood Prince. Which is my favorite book.



Then I read my card...which had me scrambling for the box and the papers. Robyn had wrapped this little girl in paper and put her in the cup. I totally missed her! She's perfect. If I were a wizard, (the jury is still out), She would be my patronus. I lifted her up and let her slightly twirl in the air when I found her, and she made me smile.

 

Again Robyn, if you have a better picture of her, please post. I just couldn't seem to get a good picture of her.

Many many thanks to Robyn. I know that these pieces are some of those I have received in other swaps, like my Eeyor needlebook. They will be well used and worn over many years to come.

And more thanks out to Jennie. For hosting all of us crazy kids in the middle of the HP Summer Semester.

9  Hippogriff/Buckbeak Ornament in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by fatewineroses on: July 27, 2016 03:38:03 PM
Using pottermouth's tutorial/pattern, I made a hippogriff for my partner in the HP Burrow Swap. Made from a wool blend felt, it was super easy to do. But I forgot the tail! I'm going to make another one for my mom and will need to remember the tail next time.
