421  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap R5 FOCR R5 Fresh Bloomin' Gallery in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: May 12, 2009 04:56:44 PM
So... my package wasn't on the porch again... because it was in my MAILBOX!!!

Whoo-hoo! I got the truly lovely embroidered and crocheted towel from cyndiq, along with an embroidered bookmark and magnet and some chocolate!

The towel is so much prettier in person than the photo shows. Her crochet skills are excellent (it's crocheted with a thin cotton yarn). I haven't decided where to put it so that I'll use it (as intended), but it won't get trashed. Perhaps I'll put it on the handle to the oven door... or on the door of the fridge. Yes... the fridge, I think...

And, on the package, she put some fantastic Aussie stamps and a sticker of the Australian flag. I'm saving them until I learn how to solder!

Thanks so much, cyndiq!

Here are some more fabulous inchies to add to this ever-growing gallery of greatness! These arrived today from plucky1_08:

I really like the one that says "mother" because it shows a bird feeding her babies, and the one with the gold flower on it has a ton of detail in it that isn't captured in the photo. I also really like "spirited" and it has such a funky background!

And here they are! Fantastic inchies from ENGRbyDAY! Sadly, the button didn't survive the trip, despite the cotton padding. I'm hoping I can glue it, but it is in many bits...

I love the planet, and the simplicity of the 'Strength' one. And, it's funny that you outlined the one with the ball the way you did. I made one for myself that has an almost identical border (mine is black) Wink

Thanks a bunch! I love them all!

I couldn't get a good photo of the greek symbol (not sure which one it is).  And now my camera battery is dead. 

It's supposed to be the letter M for your initial Wink I had a bit of an issue with the teeny glass beads on yours so it doesn't photograph very well, unfortunately!

ETA: But here's what I have...

The 'You are Here' one is so clever! I need to make one for myself Cheesy

Thanks! I was pretty tickled by it myself Wink I had an old Rand-McNally road atlas that I sacrificed...

And, I just realized, I have a set of inchies to photograph and post!

I got a set of inchies from prettyinkpink yesterday, and I "heart" them Wink

The one on the left has a great deal of texture with a "chunky" layer of crystal pieces. The next one is a fantastic little poetry book. Then, there are some shell rectangles, followed by a heart with embroidered accents, and then a collage with a photo that has some small stamped flowers, a felt flower and some text (I think it translates to "smiles" or "smiling."). I love them all!

Here are the inchies I received from JennyBear! She made me some science themed ones- butterflies! Each inchie is covered with punched butterflies in various shades of a color. I love how she arranged them in the envelope, and will probably display them this way (they stuck together a bit, so it's another reason). I may switch the green and blue so they are in rainbow order Wink

Thanks, JennyBear!

427  Re: 2009 12" Squares- May in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: April 30, 2009 06:18:38 PM
So, since I have to go to bed soon, and get up way too early tomorrow (my car was supposed to be inspected by today, but I had a tail light out, so I have to get up early tomorrow to be at the inspection station by 7 am), I'm posting the May square now Wink

It's the Victorian Dream Square. It wasn't hard, but you may want to write out rounds 5 and 6, because there are a bunch of repeats (sorry- I don't have time to do it  Undecided ). I also made a couple of notes on the first post in this thread, which may (or may not) be helpful.

My square is a bit small, but I forgot to do the last round in black, so I'm not worried Wink

Can't wait to see what you all use for color combos on this one! And, fantasticmio, I expect a completed square by the time I get home from work tomorrow Wink

428  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap (FOCR) R5 SIGNUPS CLOSED SENDOUTS 5/6 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by craftADDchick on: April 26, 2009 07:29:17 AM
Breakfast is done, and buttons are sewn, so here's my offering!

Three re-usable lunch bags. The inside is lined with an orange swirly cotton fabric, covered with iron-on vinyl (they are not insulated, however). They close with fabric covered buttons. The 2 floral print ones are made with duck cloth, I think (might be lighter weight than that, though... I bought the fabric from JoAnns a while ago and they were in the clearance section), and the third one is canvas that I stenciled on.

Wow! There are so many great inchies on here! I just love looking at them all! I have 2 things to work on tonight, but sadly, neither is inchies. But, that's okay because I'm gathering more stuff to make them with- materials, ideas, techniques- so hopefully I'll be able to crank them out when I finally sit down to it Wink

Here are the beauties that I received from edelC! I can't pick favorite, but the chicken one that says "MOM" cracks me up Wink I love the background colors on all of them.

My inchies look so great all together! I was perusing the frames the other day, and I can't wait to frame them!

Thanks, edelC!

430  Re: Amazing Crochet Motif Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by craftADDchick on: April 20, 2009 04:07:18 PM
Here are the motifs I made for myself as I was making them for MareMare and fantasticmio. They're pretty much the same as those that I made for MareMare (and some of the ones that I made for fantasticmio).

I think these last 2 are my favorites! I'll be laying them all out this week to see how I should arrange them for my blanket. Then, I'll start crocheting them together!

And, I'll be leaving feedback in just a jiffy. If it doesn't appear in your profile in about an hour, let me know...

Thanks everyone for such a great swap! I can hardly wait for the next round Wink
