1  Re: Personal/Private Swap Gallery August 2008 in The Swap Gallery by catpants on: August 27, 2008 05:27:20 PM
i did a personal swap with the fabulous pinkanddinky -- here's what she sent me:


three light switch plates, a set of four coasters, a cute container holding three hair elastics with adorable fabric-covered buttons, and an AMAZING handmade ceramic mug packed with tea  Grin  i included the card in with the crafted stuff 'cause it's just so cute  Wink


close-up of the mug:


the pictures really don't do anything justice -- pinkanddinky has great attention to detail and everything she sent was flawless and exactly what i'd wanted Smiley -- but especially not that mug!  it has a gorgeous glaze and is very well made... i tried to learn wheelthrowing once upon a time and never came up with anything close to this!  Cheesy

thanks again for a great swap, pinkanddinky!

OPEN!

new items added june 17th!

CRAFTED ITEMS:

2 points:

Memory wire bracelet: green.  This bracelet wraps around my wrist (which is 7-ish inches) about four times and stays put nicely.  The beads are all random glass beads from my stash, with lots of size/shade/shape changes to keep it interesting!


Felted purse.  Pattern from One-Skein Wonders, knit with Paton's SWS.  Big enough for a wallet and phone with a little space left over.  Button closure.



1 point:

Herbal first aid salve.  Made with herbs from my garden, olive oil, and beeswax from a local beekeeper.  Apply to minor cuts and scrapes to promote healing.

Please note that all items under 1 point were not necessarily made by me!

.5 pts:

Hair Clip Sets

choose from:  purple flower buttons, white sheep, strawberries, pink sheep, teensy vintage buttons (you get all 4), tortoiseshell buttons

Teal Fun Fur Scarf


Felted Handbag
magnetic snap closure, small inside pocket


.25 pts:

*MAJOR* Jewelry De-stashing:

choose from: green shamrock necklace, reversible vintage lady pendant, red beaded bracelet, beaded watch (slightly tarnished and has stopped; probably just needs a new battery? -- actually, if you make any claim from me and would like this watch, you can have it for free), cluster necklace


choose from:  octopus, pink cloisonne, blue cloisonne, pink hearts, red beads, green beads, purple beads, green leaf, blue stripes


choose from:  green and blue drops, brown stars, bird with flower, another picture of the octopus (only one pair), pink drops, pink shell buttons


choose from:  green stars, clothespins, felted pears, clovers, hearts, green and blue circles


choose from:  chicken pin, button pendant, stamped strawberry pendant


Hair clips galore!
choose from:  red button, pink shell button, black sheep, vintage black button, green button, felted circle, vintage green button, white sheep

Headbands

choose from:  flower print, blue knit

SUPPLIES:

2 points:
Build your own minifabricgasm (that's a word, right?  Cheesy)! 
How it works: send me a list of the fabrics you want (see pics for letters/numbers of fabrics), in order of most to least interested.  I'll start at the top of your list and stuff a flat-rate envelope until it can't fit any more.






(also, if you're really into polka dots, i have some pale blue with polka dots that isn't pictured)

Vintage knitting patterns.  I'd prefer to send this within the U.S. as there is quite a stack of these and I imagine shipping is going to be rather pricey!


Bags of wool.  Random mixed bags of wool, hooray!


Bag 2

1 point:

Adult alpaca roving.  Since I don't have a scale, I'll sell this by the yard - 1 point/yard - so let me know how many yards you would like.  The pen is for size reference.



.25 pts:

Patterned felt (each piece folded in half in the photo)

choose from:  zebra, kitties, polka dots, butterflies, hearts

Assorted yarn
(most are close to a full skein, or at least big enough to be useful).


choose from:  black, ribbon, brick, lavender, light fun fur, dark fun fur, camouflage, DMC cotton perle (thicker than regular embroidery floss)
