151  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Her World on: February 05, 2008 07:20:33 PM
I just finished this today and I'm offering it in the Silly Swap North America Swap but I'm very proud of it so I wanted to show it off here too!

The pattern calls it Her World and mine is 11 1/2" in diameter (the pattern said it finished at 9")  It's made with size 10 thread and it's navy blue.

- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

The idea is to make one tiny craft item.  It should be physically small (miniatures are encouraged) and should be something that you can craft with a high level of skill.  Even if it is a fairly simple/easy item for you to make, please embellish or perfect it so that it best represents your skill.  (For example, if you wish to make a coin purse, I encourage you to embroider, add beading, or take other steps to make it a really special piece.)

You will receive only one partner.  You may only send that partner ONE tiny craft - "extras" are not allowed in this swap.  All items should be 4"x4" or smaller.  The idea behind this swap is to give you a simple, low-pressure craft swap that won't stress you out or cost a lot to ship.

How do you know if your idea is "tiny?"  Examples:  A coin purse is tiny; a clutch purse is not.  A pair of earrings is tiny; a necklace, earrings, and bracelet set is not.  A trinket box is tiny; a pencil box is not.  An ATC (artist trading card) is tiny; a full-size drawing is not.  (If you're not sure if your idea qualifies as "tiny," ask me!)

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND DON'T REPLY WITH IT HERE.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Craftster Username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your country?:
What craft skills can you use to make a high quality tiny item (ie.. knit, crochet, sew, quilt, shrine making etc..):
What craft skills would you love your tiny item to be made with:
What kind of tiny things would you like to receive? (this is just a guideline):
What are you favorite colors / motifs / styles:
What else would you like to tell you partner?  (Please be sure to include any restrictions, such as no animal byproducts, religious symbol preferences, etc.)


A few other things to follow:

1.   Please post on this thread. A simple I'm in! or whatever will suffice. This is so I'm certain you get all messages.

2.   Please put OTT 17 in the title of all PM's - don't send me a PM with no subject as I might miss it!

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

4.   Remember send only ONE tiny item, no extras!  Some people are forgetting this and so I'm mentioning it yet
      again - follow the rules!!

5.   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.

6.   This is how I plan to give feedback:

            If you send on time and follow the guildelines of only one item, I will give you a "Great Swapper"
            If you send late (with a good reason) but communicate, I will give you "Sent late but communicated"
            If you send late but don't communicate and the package actually arrives at it's destination, I will give
               you "Sent late and didn't communicate"
            If you flake (and I don't expect any flakers) you will be given "Negative"

154  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Lion heart on: January 24, 2008 08:13:52 AM
I've officially decided that rag quilts are my new passion - 2 in one week! - there is no way I'd ever get 2 'regular' ones done that quick.

I'm calling this one Lion Heart because not only does it have a heart design, the fabric is full of fun lions.  The top is cotton and then two layers of flannel.

REMOVED PICTURE BECAUSE IT WAS TOO UGLY!
155  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Ragged and green! on: January 22, 2008 09:18:28 AM
I've never made a rag quilt but have wanted to try for a long time.  I had some left over flannel sheets (yes, I said left over - we only use the fitted ones but I couldn't find them single so I had to buy a package, leaving me with the flat sheets) so I used them to make this ragged quilt.

                  

It's interesting how some of it 'ragged' more than other places.  I'm thinking I'd like to try it again some time with a little better flannel (I think this was quite cheap)
156  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / A suit of many notes on: January 14, 2008 08:55:49 PM
I hesitate to even enter this challenge since I'm very new to paper crafts - I've been trying to learn origami over the last year and when I saw this challenge announced, I decided to try my hand at one project I've already done and see what it would look like made from sheet music.

I present to you my Suit of Many Notes!


                       

                       
It is made from clarinet music for the hymn All Hail the Power of Jesus Name.

A close up of the jacket:

                         

and of the pants:

                     


The suit is made from a single piece of 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 music.
157  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / This is Slim on: November 07, 2007 10:26:02 AM
Meet Slim, the latest in my snowman collection!


                        


I was working on another project and found it was too thick for my liking so I cut a section off and Slim was created.  A little paint, a scarf and hat and he came to life!

159  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Does the amount of people on Craftster affect the speed? on: October 25, 2007 03:16:26 PM
Craftster has been running VERY slow for me today and I couldn't figure out why.  Then, I looked at the top of the page and it says there are 3118 guests and 263 members currently on here.  Personally, I've never seen the number so high and I wonder if that's what is affecting it today?
160  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Artist's Choice on: October 25, 2007 09:37:35 AM
This is a Trish Kristoffersen pattern I finished a few days ago.  It's called Artist's Choice because you have the option of making 2 different doilies from the same pattern.  The choice was either a round doily, like I made, or an oval one.  The difference was in the first 15 rounds and then both doilies finished the same from round 16-26.

I'm planning to give it to a co-worker as a surprise.
