Glad you liked everything CDEeeek!
I have to say it was deceptively difficult to draw all those cats for the tin......Gorey's style looks simple, but it's hard to get the character and personality into those little buggers. I was marginally successful, but it made me realize even more what a unique and wonderful artist he was. I miss him. (sniff)

Cackle! They look great, and your comment totally sums this up for me. I love Gorey, I love the things I received, and I even loved the things I made. But I don't know if I would do another Gorey swap! It's so hard to capture his style, as simple as it sometimes appears! I think everythone so far has done an absolutely amazing job of it, and has been such an apt tribute, but whoosh was it tricky to get right. Smiley

LOVE those tea-towels you received, Wulf! Super funny. (And you have a yurt? Seriously? I guess it's not techincally swap envy, but I AM super jealous!)

Sent this morning, just on time! But I ended up being quite happy with what I sent, in the end! This weekend I had been planning a certain project, but it just didn't pan out, so I did something else, that I ended up liking even more. Hope it makes its way to you speedily, Sheepblue!

Okay everyone, get ready for the awesome stuff I received from Sheepblue! (And special thanks to Sheepblue for being so patient! I received earlier this week, but just am getting to posting pictures now!)

First, a lovely scarf I can use to dress up as a Gorey-esque character! Smiley



Second, a lovely and absolutely perfectly done embroidery hoop! I just recently finished my first embroidery hoop swap, and am starting to collect, so this will look great! And she did an amazing job capturing Gorey in thread!



Lastly, a beautiful tote bag with a screen printed Gorey design, from the opening to Mystery! This bag is so sweet and lovely, and is going straight into my backpack to have on hand at all times!



Thank you so much sheepblue! Can't wait for you to receive... once I send that is!

FRIDAY?Huh  But...but...but...it's only Wednesday!  We have to wait til FRIDAY??  Wink
  You're right - the anticipation will kill me!  (Because I'm sure it's something fantastic!)

Wee-elll, maybe if you're well-behaved, and things move swiftly, they'll make their way online today or tomorrow. Wink

Whooooaaa!! The more I see (my received package included!), the more inadequate I feel! That is a perfect likeness of the Doubtful Guest.

I received from sheepblue last night! She sent an awesome package (albeit slightly hilarious, given what I've crafted for her!), and I'll get to posting pictures at the latest by Friday, so you can all wait in anticipation. Wink

Well, I did a bunch of crafting over the weekend, and am really happy with how things are going! (Now that they are finally going, that is!) I think I've finished what I'm dubbing my medium and one small (because let's face it, I'm a slow crafter, if I went by craftster's time guidelines, all my items would be large). I know (vaguely) what I want to do for my last item, and though I don't think I'll be able to send early, I should definitely be on track to send by Monday. Smiley I should be able to work on the rest over the weekend!

No sign of sheepblue's package yet, but I'm hoping to see it sometime this week!

Hi everyone! Checking in! Most of the madness in my life is calming itself down, and I'm ready to get going on Gorey today, while I'm staying home sick from work. Sorry I've been so inactive in this swap so far! It's been just nuts, and soon we have to start packing to move!
