I love all these patchwork things!  Sharalee, the purse and pouch and bowl are beautiful -- lucky RaraAvis!

What a lovely tradition!

I was inspired by your color work, and in a big push to use up leftover skeins turned out this one.... "Black Wave".  I made up the pattern as I went along, and see some things I'll change for the next time.



I've got a lot more yarn to clean out, so more hats are on the way.....

Such fun stuff!  The button book is amazing, as is the needle felted elephant and all the scrappy sewn items really lovely!

I love all the great patchwork, and so was doubly pleased to get my swap package from wendiek fabulous!

Using my favorite colors of green and  blue, and playing off my love of things related to Alice in Wonderland, she made me this beautiful teacup pillow case thoughtfully sized to fit an IKEA pillow -- pretty much an international standard1


She used paper piecing for the squares, which is so intriguing. And she used great fabrics that give each square even more complexity!


I absolutely love this detail; the teabag tag dangles from the pillow!


Wendiek also made me this lovely altered tin, decorated with a fabric and a paper flower, beads, ribbon, buttons even a lacy leaf.


And the tiny tin holds treasures assorted buttons in my favorite colors, and even a little owl charm.  (I dont think I mentioned this, but I love owls!)


Even the card had a scrappy quality a picture of tiles spelling thank you in dutch!


All in all, a very lovely package.  Thank you so much, wendiek!

It's been such a long time since I last posted!  Never fear, tho' - I've been crafting away.  Here's a few of the things I've added to my list!


9. Mermaid gloves

My younger sister doesnt knit.  So she was easily impressed when she saw me knitting a fingerless mitt without a pattern, just to use up the last of a skein from another project.   So impressed, I knit another one that night and gave the pair to her!

10. Millionaires shortbread/nutella rice crispies/lemon pudding cake

During the spring fund drive at work, I was a bakin fool; making all sorts of snacks for co-workers and volunteers.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures until it was almost all gone

11. Black wave hat

Using up more yarn!

12. Thank you cards

Some of the over 100 (!%^@*!) hand made thank cards for work.  Its hard to say no when my boss has a bright idea

13. Potato soup and sourdough bread
More food I forgot to photograph, but man was it tasty!  Lunch for a week!

14. dangly earrings

I made several pairs of earrings for the Use What You Have swap.  I liked em so much I made a few more pairs!

15. Steampunk copper planter

I go to a big garden swap twice a year, and I always try to make something unusual for a door prize.  This started out as a handful of unused PVC plumbing elements in the basement.


16. Pulled chicken and rhubarb crisp
  And of course, I cant go to the swap without food, right?  More lousy pictures of food; in this case, pulled chicken and rhubarb crumble.

And finally (for now!)
17. Brittle peanuts

A friend was heading out on a trip, so I made him a batch of sweet and spicy brittle peanuts for the road!

There's plenty more, but I'll give it a break for now.  And it looks like I've got lots of pages to catch up on!

Whew!  I had closure issues -- literally, I couldn't figure out how to close one item - but it's done at last and in the mail!

I've spent too much time on the road, and too little time crafting these last 10 days, but I'm made enough progress on the big to realize -- I like it!  Making one for myself eventually...

All the places are in place for the others, just need to spend some time in my own home!

I'm so pleased; I'm trying out a new craft and I really like the results!  I think I'm going to expand it -- and then back to the crafts I know.

I love swapping....

I'd hate for you to do all the work or organizing, but not have the fun of swapping, wendiek.  I can do two packages.  Heck, looking at my craft room I have enough for a dozen, but probably not in three weeks....

But two I can do!
