I see a blue demon, a yellowish pie, and a purple bull with a creamish yellowish horn....

I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw a pie in the middle image.  Mmmm, lattice-top apple pie... I might have to make some this weekend now.

I'm pleased with my experiments and should be sending on Monday when I get my check (Which did not come today >:[)

I think I'm more excited about the good Doctor than anything else this holiday season XD

My mad science is going well.  I think it will be called "success".

Ooooh, an extension means I can go all mad-science and try new things for some extras!  Who needs tutorials when you have... SCIENCE?!  (By science I of course mean insanity and a strangely lit desk, but close enough Wink)
27  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: MINI 12 Days of Christmas 2010 (sign ups CLOSED) Send out 12/1 on: December 06, 2010 09:43:00 PM
OK I will blame it on Lindy all she asked for was BIG stuff! Grin  (Not really, but it sounds good)  Wink

Blameshifting is an important job skill nowadays, especially in the corporate world! Wink    Those are some mighty impressive packages though!  I can't wait to see what everyone made.

Internet access has been restored and is currently stable, YAY!  And now (finally) the rest of the pictures:

The whole kit'n'kaboodle:


We start off with some gorgeous fabric~  I can't wait to make something with this!


Then a really cute hot pad and embroidered towel/washcloth which are already in use


Margiej sent a Bob the Builder stuffie and soft tools for my son!  He loves them so much.  As soon as I handed them to him, he squealed and gave Bob a big kiss!  Grin


Awesome coasters with sparkly purple spider webs on them and super-cute bubble magnets!


Bookmarks galore!  (Which is great because I usually have 3 books going at a time, and I've been using old receipts to mark the pages)


Earrings!


A sparkly pink skull and crossbones heat pack!  (Perfect for this weather.  It is currently keeping my toes toasty Smiley)


A hanging organizer!  This will be great for keeping things away from little hands.


A cute totebag with an inner pocket (At this rate, all of my projects will have nice bags)  I don't know if you can tell, but the little spots are tiny hearts!  too cute!


A snuggly warm fleece blanket!  Perfect for the weather we've had (and will have until April, haha!)


An awesome bag!  (It fits so well with my wardrobe, you have no idea)

So many pockets!  It has become my new purse Cheesy


... and best of all...

A patchwork skirt!  It's nice and thick, so I don't have to wait until spring to be colorful!  It's so comfy! Cheesy

Thank you so much for everything, MargieJ!  It's all just perfect!


And here's MargieJ's pictures!

Everything all wrapped up:

It looks like a few are missing, but really they're hidden inside other presents (I'm crafty like that)

Day 1? 12?

cigar boxes! (I tried to include as many wishlisted items as I could)  These were the sneaky ones that hid other presents within Cheesy


Toys for MargieJ's kitties!


... and her puppy, too!


A poppy headband inspired by her wists


a teeny tiny island paradise (about 1.5" tall)


a paint kit


crocheted washcloths - I forgot to measure, but I think they were 10"


a flower loom


a fat Tinkerbell picture (I'm rather proud of this one, it was a lot of fun to draw!)


a beading loom


A bellydancer figure!  Again, just so much fun to make!

here's a view of the backside

and last but not least...

an old lady amigurumi!  

I hope you enjoy everything, MargieJ, and thanks for being such a great partner!

Just think like the Doctor! Cheesy

Wow.  That scarf looks squishy.  Is it double knitted?  Love it! 

It's a tube! Cheesy  I prefer that over the double knit since you still get the extra thickness, but the stitches look so much nicer.

Really, a tube?  I need to make a tube one now!  I dont have a gryffindor scarf yet and I NEED one!  Cheesy  I just need to find the color gold yarn.  What kind did you use?  This tube scarf will totally be put on my 'to do' list after I finish my huge list of Christmas gifts to the family.

I used Caron Simply Soft (I love the way it feels, and it's available in town!) in Autumn Red and Sunshine.  The other nice bit about tube-knit striped things is that as long as they're securely knotted at the color changes, all the yarn ends are hidden inside - you don't have to weave them in!
