Finally I have received and I'm pretty sure I'm the last person - now goldfishpollywog can post what she received.  I have no idea why my package took so long, it shouldn't have since it was sent priority from the US but, alas, it did.

The wait was worth it though because I received this fantastic hoop from whitterp:

Details of swap:

The idea is to make  ONE tiny craft item  that  must measure 4 by 4 or smaller.   "Extras" are not allowed in this swap!

Since you're only crafting and sending one tiny item, please make every effort to ensure that what youre making is something great something that you hope your partner will adore!


Post on this thread once you've sent in your questionnaire and post a few times during the swap so we know you're still active.

Please put OTT 24 in the subject line of all PM's

A DC# is not required since the packages are very small but save your receipt and be prepared to show me a copy if there are problems with your package arriving in a timely fashion.

Remember to PM the organizer and your partner when you send and when you receive.

If you know you won't be able to post pictures, tell you partner right away so they can take a picture of the item before they send to you.

Remember send only ONE tiny item, no extras!  It will be noted in your feedback if you don't follow the 'rule' and send extras.

I'm hoping that no one will send late but, if closer to send out date, you know you are going to be late, you must inform me and your partner.

5  A slice of watermelon in CHALLENGE 99 ENTRIES by Homerof2 on: June 05, 2014 04:17:40 PM
My little contribution to this month's challenge.  A slice of watermelon hoop.


And to prove it's actually a tiny item - the hoop measures 3" and the watermelon slice is 1 1/2".

I am going to offer a trio of crocheted dishcloths/washcloths.  Each is 8" square and made from cotton so they can be washed and dried.

7  Oh Canada in Needlework: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: May 01, 2014 06:36:10 AM
I've had this project pinned for quite awhile and when I saw Challenge 98's theme I knew this was going to be my project.  Here is my inspiration PIN

For those unfamiliar with Canada - that's a maple leaf on her shirt and she's holding hands with a beaver, our national animal.

8  Without You ... in Needlework: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: April 28, 2014 12:47:33 PM
In the almost 29 years we've been married, I've gone through some medical issues that have required hospitalization.  Through those times, my husband has been a rock.  When I thought I just couldn't handle things any longer, he always had the right thing to say or do that would pull me up and help me see that I would get through okay.  A few weeks ago I came across this pattern and I just knew I had to make it for our bedroom, so that each day he can see how I feel about him.

9  Oregon in Gold in Needlework: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: April 19, 2014 09:36:56 PM
I made this for my partner in the Embroidery Hoopla swap, the theme this round was Places.  I chose to make her state of Oregon and put a heart over her home town.  I used waste canvas for the first time.  I received some in a previous swap but never tried it until now.  I chose blue and gold as those are the State colors.

Removing the waste canvas, which wasn't as easy as I thought it would be...

10  Christmas in April ?? in Winter Holidays by Homerof2 on: April 03, 2014 01:27:26 PM
Not really, just a quick little project I made today.  I'm in an 'instant gratification' phase where I'm trying to make projects that can be completed in one day, rather than tackling something that takes weeks.  I've had this project on my to-do list for awhile.

It's little - just 10" from hanger to heel and is totally reversible.
