LUCKY bridesmaids!  I love them all, but the last is my favourite.  I would so love a weekend bag like that! Wisted!
3932  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: How My Garden Grows Swap (sign ups CLOSED) Sendout by May 8 on: April 09, 2010 07:08:28 AM
I am irked.  I needed some supplies and the hardware store near work was suppose to have some of them.  When I went there after work the other day, they had NOTHING.  Also, the staff were useless - nonexistent in fact.  Every time I headed towards one, they literally went the other way.  Hopefully I can find what I need next week after work.

OK, I have finally uploaded my pics.  Hard to take some of the pics, the dogs were getting quite curious and wanted to lie on everything!

Missing_Muse sent me a great package.  An Alice themed scrub top for work, a White Rabbit messenger bag, and a Mad Tea Party pillow.  There were also yummy chocolates in the box too, but those had to be whisked away for safe keeping.  Ginger developed a dangerous love of chocolate when she was a puppy, and I really don't want to pay for another stomach purging in her lifetime!

Here are the pics....

The scrub top (sorry, folded in half because the dogs would not move from the other half of the bed - very stubborn canines this morning!)

I love the Alice fabric used on the pockets and sleeves

The pillow - so very plump and soft.  Maybe that was why the dogs wanted to lie on the package?  Look at the front, it looks handpainted and gorgeous.

The back is fantastic hatter fabric

This lovely messenger bag.  I love the wide strap, and the fabrics she used.

The White Rabbit on the front flap

And the inside pocket - isn't it great!?

I love it!  I love love love the fabrics used, and the painting on the pillow - fantastic!

Thank you Missing_Muse!

Thank you everyone.  I am thinking of ways to mix up this style with beaded ropes or chokers (and thinking of making one in clear and icy white to comemorate the time a bus boy dropped ice water on me in a very posh restaurant).

I have to say that I love stalking swaps to see how people creatively interpret things.  Generally there are some outstanding items in every swap, but this gallery has been exceptionally outstanding - everyone went for broke and it would appear that everyone got great packages.  We all rock!  There are more right - I don't want it to end.  This also gave me inspiration on how to finish off an old garden set of mine in an Alice theme.

Thank you everyone.  Yes, I actually drew them - very hard for me to believe it myself, that is why I am so happy with them.  I marked off a few things to make sure I had the proportions right and went for broke, but I had the pictures right there for reference.  I used Pebeo Setaskrib markers, and I have to say that I want to make more!  I have the glass markers too, and I am thinking of getting a plain tea pot and and cups, and doing an entire set to really make a Mad tea table.  I have an old garden table and chair set too, which someone broke the glass on (damn them, I was going to etch it!) but maybe I can make a decorated tile top for it with Tenniel Alice pics too!

I made these recently for the Alice in Craftsterland swap (and there are some awesome things that were made for that swap by everyone).  I was going to stencil napkins, but the images were too small and I was botching them up, so I went for broke, took a fabric marker, and hand drew these Mad Hatter napkins from the John Tenniel images of the Mad Hatter.  I was nervous about it, but they turned out much better than I thought they would.  I may have to make a set for myself.

I haven't posted in awhile, but haven't done a lot of beading.  I made this for the recent Alice in Craftsterland swap.  I chose amber/topaz toned crystals to represent the tea at the Mad Tea Party, and interspersed it with some Alice inspired charms - a rabbit, a key, a crown, etc.

I really seriously started hating crimping after this project though, how annoying it is to do over and over again.  But I do like the overall effect of the necklace and would likely make it again.

Other than that, I have also made some more tile pendents

a few pins and cameos with Diamond Glaze (a friend liked them, so I made a couple extra for her too)

and some knicknacks like that, including a hat pin to go with the tophat I made and posted in the knitting forum awhile back

3939  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Alice... who the <bleep> is Alice? on: April 08, 2010 03:19:01 PM
Anyone familiar with that song?  I remember hearing it for the first time when I met DH's very Irish grandparents and they got me tipsy on some form of Irish booze.  They were notorious for having big bonfires on their retirement property in cottage country, having all kinds of friends and relatives around, singing, being silly, and staying up until the wee hours.  Every time I hear the name Alice, I think of that.

Anyways, this is the other notorious Alice.  I made her for the Alice in Craftsterland swap recently.  She is knit basically from a Deb Birkin pattern, which she had for free on her UK site last year.  Except I hate sewing seams (really really really hate it), so I did her in the round as much as possible.

(please no comments about my hand up her skirt!)

I am oddly enough most proud of my little bottle with the little shrinky dink drink me sign Cheesy

I overstuffed her arms abit, so she has Popeye guns, but then again, she is a tough little gal...

A colleague saw her and really wants her, so she has commissioned me to make another one for her.

I got my package from Missing_Muse today and I love it!  I will post pics later tonight or tomorrow (depends on how much battery life is left in my camera).
