1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Let's do the iTunes Shuffle Part 2 Gallery on: December 06, 2005 09:07:04 AM
I received my CD from mjadams this morning... Thanks Megan!

The playlist has already been posted, but the beautiful folder she made is slightly different than the other one she sent! As soon as I grab some new batteries for the digicam, I'll edit & post here.

Thanks for the great swap!

Duckie, I'm so glad you like your book package!

This has been my favorite swap - I love books!

I've haven't heard the Garden State Soundtrack - will have to look for it...

I received from Duckie today!

Here's a photo of what I received:



In case the photo isn't too clear... The book is Guards!Guards! By Terry Pratchett, & is part of the Discworld Series. I've never read any of these books, so I'm really looking forward to reading this...

Her craft was a set of terrific water-colored (I hope I am right) bookmarks with quotes about reading on them! I put my favorite quote against the book -- "A Room Without Books Is Like A Body Without A Soul" The bookmarks are such an awesome idea because my kidlets always steal mine! [must horde bookmarks...]

In her adorable card, she added suggestions about other books in the series that I might like to read, too...

I have to say this was a great swap! Thanks so much Duckie! And thank you Fadeawaydream for organizing this one!  Smiley

Thanks everyone on your comments - and your tips! Especially the idea of putting a pin in the bead...

I found a small needle felting kit on EBay this morning, so will see if that works out in my favor...

I am so looking forward to learning more about felting! I think my favorite thing about the wet felting was 'playing' in the warm water- it's kind of soothing on a chilly day! [And it means I'm not washing dishes Wink]

Hi littlenecy,  did you originally post them here(in felting area)?  If so, I sure missed them.  Of course did not include "oblivious" as part of my avatar for nothing  Grin

From what is shown, looks like a pretty bracelet and cool beads.  Great work on a first felting process.

Before we can help, need to know if the beads were needle felted or wet felted?  Did you use the tute by lise on this board? or some other method?   Also if you could either crop the photo or get a closer view it might be helpful so anyone giving suggestions can see the work more closely.

Will say that in general, hand felted - either needle or wet - expect some irregularity; part of the beauty of hand made is the aysmetry the individuality of pieces. 

PS.  went back as your screen name was not familiar to me, and sure enough you haven't before posted here in felting.  So Welcome to the felting area.  did you find us yourself or did your post magically get moved?  Sometimes the elves do that Wink  At any rate, glad you arrived - there are a number of us who frequent the felting area and love to talk felting.  Happy to have another felter.

Thanks, GraceOblivious -and Goatgoddess for your remarks Smiley I thought I had posted in here, but I guess not... Oh well!

I am glad to hear that irregularities are normal when felting (it seems to add to the charm of the beads...) I have always been interested in felting, and then read Lise's tutorial & knew that I had to try! I am not the patient type, and have no wool roving in the house. But I do have some green wool [pure] yarn. So, I wound it into little balls and tried my hand at wet felting the little balls. They didn't work so hot the first time around... But, I'm not one to give up -especially when I want to try something out. So I took my yarn and pulled it apart and ran my fingernails down it to fluff up the fibres. Wound it up into looser balls & felted. They worked much better the second time around. [Sorry the picture's so bad, my camera is 1.3 mp]

I love the idea of making jewelry with felt beads. But I'd also like to get my hands on some roving and try making felted bowls to place around the house. And I also read some posts on needle felting and would like to try that, too. (I put needle felting kit on my Christmas Wish List) However, I think I'm going to have to get through Christmas first! Grin

If you've managed to read this far,thanks fo reading!

I'm not on the list on the first page, but I signed up and am 'in progress' under my profile! Smiley

Apparently I need my glasses prescription checked!  Grin

I'm almost finished my craft, too! Anyone else?
