21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ten minute swap round 4 - Gallery! on: May 27, 2014 12:51:39 PM
So the postman arrived today, he brought this wonderful package from my anna.wahnsinn We had agreed to take more than the one hour crafting time, and then (luckily for me!) she couldn't decide which bracelet to send me. The red one is my theme of hearts, action shot.......


and the blue one from my theme of the seaside...

 if this wasn't enough spoiling, she also made a really pretty necklace to match.

action shot...squinting at the setting sun... (how do I hate thee selfies...let me count the ways)

all three together...so you can see the heart one more clearly...as a lovely touch, they have gorgeous little heart clasps..

Thank you Anna, I really love all of them..I wanted to wear both bracelets at the same time going out earlier, but my 19 year old daughter stopped me..
 as Kathe Lette says. 'Living with a teenage daughter is like living with the Taliban. Mothers are not allowed to dance, sing, flirt, laugh loudly or wear short skirts. - (although she is not quite that bad...and she definitely approved of the Jewellery Anna)

I love the long handles, the bags really hang at my side (and not in my armpit) and I can wear them across the body, too.

the other thing that works with the long handles, if you have really heavy shopping, tie two bags together and sling them over your shoulder, makes them much easier to carry...

and THREE tote bags?Huh??

yeah, my partner and I agreed to craft for longer than the hour, but also sewing is very fast for me and thye are not lined, they are for groceries.... so they didn't take too long to do...

anna. I love the photos with the little grabby hand in the corner...brilliant!

this was a great swap, when is the next one??

So I did a bit of fast sewing today, I used some of leapfeetfirst's fabric and made this tea cosy. I didn't want to cut into the fabric too much, so I left it mostly square. It has it's own thread here... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433640.0#axzz32YjREJrX

To be honest abbeyroad, It was the easiest thing to make....

it is basically a pouch with a gap on one side for the spout. This design with the enclosed handle is really good if you have a pot where the handle gets too hot.

Just a reminder for everyone out there shopping: the max size of the spool (without embellishment) for this swap is 6 inches.   

Holy god you put the heart crosswise in me there for a minute...I have been working on this all day, and it has all come together, so I will be sending early (go me...but it is only because I am using it as displacement activity instead of marking exams)...I have used a small vintage spool, but with embellishments it is definitely larger than 6''... once I read your post twice, I calmed down.

I got this amazing printed fabric from the most recent round of the fabric printing swap, from leapfeetfirst and I needed a new tea cosy. I am a complete tea addict and own about 4 cosies, but I bought a new, bigger, teapot and I needed to make something fast and cheerful to wake me out of todays slump-I had the whole day planned for craft and did feck all..but this is cheery.

Tea-cosies that you have to lift off to pour the tea are a pain in the ass, I like the ones with the spout free...this one wasn't really measured, I held the fabric to the pot and sewed away (it is padded with an old bedspread that has a polyester lining between two layers of cotton) ..I added a couple of buttons to make it even happier.

this is how I will be pouring out tea in about ten minutes...

Knickers -- I believe that long skinny spool is used in weaving. It's used in the shuttle to hold the thread. I don't weave so I'm not 100%. But it looks very old and cool Smiley

it looks like a lace bobbin to me...cool collection of spools though

I am intrigued by my partners choices...and have not a single clue what to make, I have some inchies of hers from years ago and am delighted to be swapping with smmarrt again...off to browse my spools and see if inspiration strikes...

I don't think it matters now that I forgot to mention to the organizers that knickers is a trouble maker.  Roll Eyes

I have the time out chair at the ready, if needed!

(Okay, we don't do time out at my school, but I can for certain occassions.)

Whatever. Isn't that positive parenting a thing now? Nothing negative, no reprimands, no punishments, no shouting... only positive choices and reinforcement? FYI A mom at my kids' school does this... her kid is a little shit. My kid gets yelled at three times before breakfast and he's a flipping peach.

Where are the partners?

that is a stupid way to bring up a kid, they all need boundaries...like this swap, our creativity and results will be much better because of the limits of the swap...boundaries... (or is it just me, maybe I need to go and build a fence or something)

some seriously awesome folk in this swap...

I bought an old old sewing box with stuff inside in a flea market in germany on our epic european trip a few years ago, I am pretty sure there are some cool spools in there...
