jrain, you got a fabulous package from [/b]Kenners[/b]! I love the bag! I really like how it's embellished, and I'm usually not a big fan of buttons as decoration (gasp!). The bookmarks are nice and cheery, too! And, both of those books sound very interesting...my library list is growing longer with every package received
PlumCrafty, you got a sweet little package from something_weird! I love, love, love the stamp! And, it's so great that she sent other little items along with it.
balkandina- I really love the flower! I have a cube stamp that has an outline pattern that is similar and would make a very complementary background for your stamp, I think! And the Japanese style stamp is so elegantly simple. Ephemera is one of those things that I don't have the patience to collect myself, but I do love it and can see how useful and inspiring it can be
Well, my vote has been cast (hmmmm...caucuses don't sound very productive), so here are my stamps from balkandina! I just love them both! And, she also sent some ephemera from her stash and I think I'll be using some of it in the very near future.
Thanks so much, Dina, and thanks for organizing this swap too!
Balkandina- The stamps that you sent to [/b]Sarcastra[/b] are excellent! I really love the subtlety of the skull in the heart. I didn't see it at first, but after glancing away, I caught it out of the corner of my eye and now it's all I can see.
And, I received my stamps today and, as soon as I get back from voting (at the school down the hill and down the block), I'll post pics!
I'll be showing off when I've finished don't fret *lol* the back pieces seem to be taking forever, single crochet isn't my fave stitch It doesn't help that I'm ill and not really feeling like working on them though.
Excellent! On the showing off, that is...not on the fact that you're ill And, I can't craft when I'm feeling icky, either. I'm a "curl up on the couch and watch TV and drink tea" kind of gal when I'm sick.
I love the squares posted today (January and February versions). And, I'm thinking I definitely need to find another source for Simply Soft- autumn red and bone are not colors I have ever come across, and I'm coveting them both!
And, Kookaloo, I'd love to see a pic of the cushions when you've finished them
Sorcha and Kookaloo- Great job on the squares. I love how different they look with the different colors you used. And Kookaloo, those squares will make an awesome cushion/pillow! Will you line it with fabric, or just plop the pillow right in?
So I sewed my head today, so that when my eyes show up I'll be ready.
For some reason, this sentence struck me as totally funny...
And, thanks for even more tips about making wings! I am doing some serious crafting over vacation, that's for sure. I was so wiped out getting ready for Christmas that I totally wasted Christmas break. And, the next 2 weeks, except for a couple of evening events, will be relatively easy for me. So, my list of crafts-to-do will get a huge chunk knocked out of it. I can't wait...
