I claim Goldfish Girl for something goldfishy. This my SECOND wish! I'm in Minnesota

Here are my wishes:

I am desperate for Arm warmers, any kind but especially thin and dark and solid colored for work...my dream is black or green pointelle, (or grey, or burgundy or brown...) but anything thinish and soft and rather long, OR fun ones for at home) These are the ideal, if only they weren't pink! http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=9748&itemType=PRODUCT&iMainCat=77&iSubCat=555&iProductID=9748 I like the just-a-bit-longer-than-wrist length.

A Hat: I love this one http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57584.0

             Or a kitty hat (black w/ pink inside ears or just black) knit, fleece, or whatever Thanks Dangerkitty!

             Or a Chicken Viking hat (just cause I laugh every time I see it! I could see it becoming the official    Thanksgiving Chef's Hat!) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21342.0

             Or a Panta (any color but I'd be your best friend it was green)

             Or a Hallowig from Knitty (!)

             Or a baby Yoda hat for my nephew (who isn't quite born yet but I already want to spoil like mad!)

A kimono fabric hobo bag like this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56519.0 (I am in LOVE with the indigo/orange one!)

Or the necktie schoolbag (I love the burgundy/black/grey/paisley colored one but any colors will work)

Vintagey/kitschy embroidered or appliqued kitchen towels (fawns, mermaids, pinups, swallows, mexicana, cowgirls, pretty much anything from sublime stitching, my kitchen is green with accents in pink, orange,red, so anything will do!)

An embroidery for my bedroom, which is pink and gold; something sexy, maybe 1920's, art nouveau, vintage nude, Japanese cherry blossom, something pretty and glam (I saw a gorgeous Louise Brooks one on craftster http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=59537.0 ) or other decor items in that vein would be nice too!

Some kind of cute embroidery or other wall art for my bathroom, which is kind of a modern take on shabby chic, in light blue and white: a mermaid or nude maybe?

Porn by numbers

Something vintagey looking for my kitchen that says "I'm not a fast cook. I'm not a slow cook. I'm a half-fast cook" with maybe a 1950's housewife image. Thanks Princess Blueberry!

Something Omiyage

Something Day of the Dead or Loteria inspired

A stuffed black squirrel, either in the style of those felt monster/kitty type toys or amigurumi. I never saw a black squirrel till I moved here, but there's one on my street. His name is Jimmy. He refuses to be photographed.

a knitted uterus (cause...why not...) (especially one that could contain a heatable bag of seeds & lavender for crampish times)

the infamous lipstick girl cozy http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39172.0

monster slippers (size 8-9)

A cool microscope slide necklace (I'm learning to make these but haven't got it yet)

Something Bollywood related

A Gromit (knit, felt, anything) (Sean the sheep or Feathers McGraw would be fun too)

A bowl's worth of funny fruit (knit, crochet, felt, as long as it's kitschy)

A vintagey rectangular tablecloth (pm me for dimensions) I love the ruffled ones on Anthropologie, or a cowgirl print, or anything fun, really. My DR is grey & mocha with red chairs but almost any colors will work.

Uh-oh! I am still just getting to know my little neighborhood so I haven't ventured out shopping anywhere else yet. But one visit to Treadle inspired me to beg for my Grandma's old sewing machine and learn to sew!!

We should all get together sometime, take over a Starbucks, and do some beading or knitting or something... Need something fun to help get through the blah Minnesota January and February.

That would be awesome!

I'm Lori, I'm 38, single, and recently moved to St. Paul for a job (I'm a librarian). I don't know anyone and I'd love to learn more about what's cool in the TC! So far I like it a lot (and I recently went to the Bead Monkey for the first time, it's great!)  Smiley

That mirror really is wonderful...how did you make it? All the stuff in this swap is amazing, Oh How I Wish I'd Been In This One!!!

cute! is that lionbrand homespun?

Why yes, it is!  Smiley I combined "Corinthian" and "Nouveau" as they were the closest I could find to Pink Dino's example. After I shipped I got inspired to add brown "Voodoo" into the combo for a friend's Christmas pressy as Voodoo is on clearance at my local Joanne's. I like it! May have to do one for me! Wink

I have one, but if I ever have a weiner dog I am definitely naming him "Torso"!  Grin

Nest posted a good idea about making reed fragrance diffusers, along with sources. They might be a bit pricey for larger groups, but not so bad for smaller ones.
Someone else also posted a really nice idea about "wish ornaments" and boxes recently.

Pink Dinosaur received her Thanksgiving scarf and said I could post it. So here it is...my first swap contribution!
