7611  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Owl Swap Round 4 Gallery! on: June 13, 2007 03:33:49 PM
And, I got my package from christinacoghill today! I'm supposed to be grading papers and on a temporary ban from Craftster until they are done, but since the ban is self-imposed, I figured that I could break the ban for a minute and post my pics.

Everything together...

There's an adorable crocheted owl stuffie, which is going on my desk, a macrame owl necklace (nothing says retro like owls and macrame!), a crocheted owl on a keyring, a panel with 2 of the knitted owl cables (it has a crocheted border, and I just happen to have the same yarn, so I may attempt to crochet a hat around it!), and a felt tree with 2 pairs of owl shrinky dink earrings and a two pairs of hair clips (owls and baby deer). I love how the owls are perched in the tree!

Here's a close-up of the tree with the earrings and hair clips. And, try as I might, I couldn't get a clear picture of the owl cables.

Thanks Christina for the great package!! Whoo-hoo!

rozekitten- The bag is fantastic, as is the wallet- I just love the owl cable pattern! And I love the Owl earrings (he's my favorite cartoon owl), too (and funny about the other pair!).

tazzell- Excellent package you received! The tiny stuffie is too cute to stick pins into, and the needle topper is adorable! The hat and scarf set is absolutely fabulous and the earrings are sweet! And, I'm jealous of the top in the cute owl fabric (I just couldn't find any owl fabric anywhere- now that the swap is done,I'll probably see it all over the place).

Such cute owly goodness all around!!

giantsquid- You got a fantastic package! Everything looks so nicely made! The owls on the skirt, needle case and machine cover are adorable! And the owl on the journal is fabulous!

And thanks, folks, for helping to ease my anxiety about my package! I'm quite proud of the large item I made (a labor of love it turned out to be), but sometimes I do have unusual tastes...one gal's treasures are another gal's trash...  Cheesy  I'm hoping it arrives tomorrow or Thursday. The last package I sent in the US only took a couple of days...

I'm still waiting for my partner to send. She also hasn't had a chance to post pics of what I sent, and I forgot to take them. So, I figured I'd at least list what I sent her...

I made her a set of the criss-cross coasters. I also made a tea box (full of tea) out of matching fabric. I made a set of note cards using paper that I tea dyed. My favorite part was a set of clear glass tea cups that I etched with the symbols for "Harmony" and "Serenity" on one side, and the matching words on the other.

I also came across this neat Green Tea book with all kinds of neat recipes and stuff in it (I got one for myself, too). I also threw in a tea ball and a tea bag squeezer along with some loose teas.

I had a lot of fun making stuff for this swap. I started making stuff as soon as we were assigned partners, and then got backlogged with other things. And then I missed the post office on the day of the mailing deadline. Cry But at least everything arrived safely and she said that she loved it all  Cheesy

P.S.  If she doesn't want it, you can always send it my direction.   Grin  Heehee, jk.

Hmmm...you might want to wait until you see if before you say that Wink

She mentioned the word "retro" in a message and that's what started it all...I'm just hoping that she doesn't equate it with "tacky" Wink

I sent today and I am verrry anxious. Especially about my large item. I got a kick out of it once it was done, but I don't know if my partner will LOVE it...so I offered her a guaranteed "refund and exchange" if she doesn't like it Wink

But, to shorten my anxiety, I sent my package Priority Mail so she'll have it in a few days...good thing I'm not a nail biter...I'd have none left...

So cool! And so easy! I'm hitting the thrift stores for more old albums. I already have a Slim Whitman album just waiting to be melted into a bowl, but now I have more possibilities!!

Thank you soooo much for sharing!

Wow! Your squares look fabulous! I still haven't attempted this yet, but soon...counting down the days...

I really like the look of the black background- it makes the flowers look so much more vibrant! And I like the effect of the variegated yarn!

Can't wait to see your finished afghan!

Very cool! I love the swoopy look- it complements the fabrics nicely!

How did you attach the bag to the record? I don't see any holes, so I'm guessing some sort of adhesive. And, by peeking through the hole in the bottom of the record, it looks like the fabric goes all the way across...

Thanks! My fat foam is 6 mm thick which is less than 1/4 thick. so, if I start with the foam, I'll definitely need to glue the two pieces together.
