Details of swap:

This is a quick swap for ONE APRON of equal materials to be swapped between partners of equal skill levels.  (Hopefully ending in a swap that was 'worth everyone's while'!)

Note:  For a smooth swap and less swap anxiety, please swap ONE APRON ONLY at this time.  Any kitchen accessories or 'extras' can be swapped in one of the 'Home-maker' themed swaps or through personal swaps.  Thanks for understanding!

22  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Is it a needle felted gnome? Is it an ATC? YES, and YES! on: January 17, 2007 06:21:37 PM
RecycleMicol proudly presents...

Well I know you have all been quivering with antici-












pation, so here is the gnome card that RM made for me. It lives up to everything that has ever been said or mentioned about it! I was all nervous opening it after all the build-up about it! So I'm kinda speechless. I present to you the needle felted gnome from RM!
TA DAHH!!

I can't stop petting his lil' beard! Plus, I missed that issue of Gnome Weekly when my subscription lapsed  Wink. Thanks RM! He definetly lives up to his rep that preceded him!

Hee-hee.  Now that's what I call mixed media!

23  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / RecycleMicol's First Andean Plied Yarn! on: January 16, 2007 09:16:25 PM
Okay...I've been reluctant to post on here because I wanted to wait until I had more experience at my drop spindle.  Well, I had to show this because I was proud that I learned to Andean ply my singles today from an on-line tutorial I found.  It actually had pics and video, but I couldn't get the videos to work for me, so I just went off of the pics and the written instructions.

I made this on a CD drop spindle that my hubby helped me make about a week ago.  I haven't measured it yet, but it looks like it might be enough to make a pot holder, or something.

*PLEASE...keep in mind that I do not have any carders, so this was made from fluffy llama batting that someone gave me for my needle felting.  This was not roving, so I didn't have it 'prepared' in any way other than it being washed and probably flicked by the people who prepared it.  I don't think I'll dye it...just because it's my first, I'll leave it natural.

That being said...here it is...my first semi-decent hand spun 2-ply yarn!








I am looking forward to getting a spinning wheel sometime soon!  If anyone hears of any really great deals on a used one, let me know!

Thanks for looking!

24  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Keeping Up Appearances ATC Swap on: January 06, 2007 05:56:52 PM
Anyone interested in a Keeping Up Appearances ATC Swap?  I know there have been British Comedy swaps here recently...but this would be just for ATCs and it would be limited to the theme: "Keeping Up Appearances" Television show.

What do you all think?

25  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Progressive Cannibal Dinner on: December 10, 2006 02:18:30 PM
Our Progressive Cannibal Dinner starts at the home of Mr. Clapet and his daughter Julie, where appetizers of 'Finger Food' will be served.   



Then on to the home of Nick and Lily Laemle for our main course of 'Butt Roast'. 



And for our final dessert course, we'll travel to the home of Detective Robert Thorn for 'Soylent Green Parfaits'.




Can you name all the movies that have inspired this macabre meal?  Have fun!  (& Pass the antacids!)

26  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / RecycleMicol's Amigurumi Bear on: December 02, 2006 08:05:03 AM
Well, if you would have told me that I'd be entering this contest a week ago, I wouldn't have believed you!  This is my first attempt at amigurumi...and I did it without a pattern!  Yep...just winged it!  I think the bear turned out pretty well...for my first try, especially! 

He stands 11-1/2" tall (sitting, he's 8" tall)  I used Moda Dea 'Dream' yarn and some random scrap yarn I had for accent.  I know I'll get better since I kind of know what I'm doing now! 






Thanks to Vanillaxlight for picking this challenge, as it has inspired me to take up yet another form of art!

I wonder what I should name him?

27  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Cute way to send your ATC's on: November 26, 2006 11:10:02 AM
KittyKill already knows this is coming to her...so it's not spoiling any surprise.

I was looking through my card stash for a card to send this ATC in, and ran across these cool vintage baby announcements and thought..."Hey! Cool idea!"

Aren't they cute??? 






Love to the crafters!

Proud Mom,
RM
28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / RecycleMicol's Corduroy Tree Knitting Tote on: November 23, 2006 11:23:59 AM
I like it.  The pattern used is a vintage McCall's pattern.  Smiley It's made from vintage (1960's era) corduroy and my own little tree design.  Machine sewn seams and hand-blanket stitched handle and applique by yours truly!









Later!

29  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Hand-Churned Felt Idea!!!! on: November 07, 2006 01:47:25 PM
Am I crazy...or is my idea for using an old-timey butter churn for agitation of wool fibers sheer genius?

I don't have a churn to try it out on, but if anyone does...have a go at it and let us know!!!

(It sounds brilliant, at least, and I have never heard of it before!)

30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / RecycleMicol's First Pincushion on: October 29, 2006 07:50:59 PM
Well, here's my first pincushion.  Nothing special besides fulling the felt bottom (actually dark gray) and crocheting the flower on top.

It's nice.  I love the gray and turquoise together.
