81  Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 72 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by dreadlocklove on: August 02, 2011 09:51:05 AM
I received my package from bergman during my holiday.

I was really excited about the beeswax candles since I haven't burnt any in a while.  They smell terrific.  The larger ones were made using local beeswax.  There are also some supplies for the kids.



Bergman also sewed me a crochet hook roll with a velcro strap.  My largest hook fits, which is great and the case folds perfectly despite the long tunisian hook.  Sorry about the crappy photo on this one.  I can't find my memory card for the digital and this was the best I could do using my laptop.



Thanks Bergman and I hope you enjoy the parcel I sent you earlier today!

82  Embroidered and Quilted Needle Roll in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by dreadlocklove on: May 27, 2011 09:08:16 AM
I'm not sure.  It's hand embroidered and quilted though...



I made the needle roll for Zombie_Queen as part of our personal swap.  This is one of the most creative projects I've worked on and I'm really pleased with the outcome.  It's pretty long and gives a decent fold so the needles don't fall out.

83  Gifts for Personal Swap with Zombie_Queen in Crochet: Completed Projects by dreadlocklove on: May 27, 2011 08:49:16 AM
Here are a couple of crocheted gifts I sent to Zombie_Queen for our personal swap.

She expressed interest in learning poi.  I made a second set so her husband can play with her.  Excuse the sideways photo.



Based on her Wists...  She loves zombies and I thought green would be a suitable colour for that.  I originally intended to embroider a tattoo, she loves body modification too, but doubted my skills.  Instead I opted for a piercing.  The pattern is based on one posted here on Craftster (I can't find the link now).



I also made her a yoga bag but don't have the photo.  I used the same pattern as the bag posted under the "Yoga Bag" topic but different colours.

Yay for personal swaps!

Here is a yoga bag I crocheted for myself recently.  It's the first crochet pattern I've attempted to create.

I received from froggmomma!  Excuse the photo quality, my camera is wonky and I had to take pictures using my laptop.  

This was such a thrilling package to open!  Froggmomma sent a wide variety of supplies and it all fits with some craft ideas I had in some way or another.



I've been busy reading through these books since I picked up my parcel this past Sunday.  "Hippy Crafts" has some really good ideas (I've spent most of my time reading that one), as does the "Crafts" magazine.  I had no idea it existed but I'm tempted to get a subscription now.  All of the crafts listed in there are ones I've never tried before so I may have to continue building on my supply wishlist now.  The kids magazine will be awesome for winter crafting with the kids this winter and there is also a spiritual reader for them too.  And there is a Guide to Houseplants.



Next comes the assortments of wood/glass beads and bangles, hemp, and yarn.  I also received some webbing but didn't notice it was out of range.



Chinese brocade fat quarters!  I'm tempted to make sleep pillows with them.



More fat quarters!



And the longer length fabrics!  I'm especially liking the yellow one and the orange one in the second row, and the striped one down below.

Thank you froggmomma!  I was not expecting such a large parcel, especially out of country, but it's really appreciated!

Thanks ecogeek!

My kids were playing with my camera and disconnected the USB cable that was attached to it which is too bad because I took a cool action shot of my boyfriend using these:



STILTS!!!  Muse and I were talking about stilts (she plays with 12 foot tall ones!).  It turns out she's a woodworker and asked if I'd be interested in receiving a set.  YES!!  I'm going on non-internet-accessible holidays for a week and a half tomorrow but as soon as I find my USB cable, I'll post the action shot.


A really cool snood that I can use (and actually needed) for spinning poi:





If I'm not mistaken, it's a T-shirt recon (with butterflies on it) with an elastic added to it.  My boyfriend thought they were underwear at first glance!  Haha..  It made me think of Missing_Muse's style right away though and what kind of other cool things she creates and wears.

I couldn't take a photo of myself wearing the fairy duster but she made me one that looks pretty identical to the one in my wist (http://www.wists.com/dreadlocklove page 2) but with different fabric.  I love the button detail and wanted to make sure I got a photo of it:



I wore it yesterday while walking with the kids and I felt so flowey!  I hope to use it will spinning poi or hooping during the holidays.

Thank you Sarah!!  This has had to be one of my favourite swaps for both sending and receiving and once you're not longer so busy, I hope we can become penpals of sort and continue to craft for each other.  I too have more I'd like to send you.

And thank you dakoma for organizing!  It was well worth the wait and please let me know of a second round.

I received my herb package from Burgz this afternoon!

Sorry about the crappy photos.  I had to use my computer because the kids were playing with the camera and disconnected and hid the USB cable that was attached to it.  I'm going away on holidays tomorrow and still wanted to post what I got.



Lots of herbs and all but the Linden were hand-grown, -picked, and -dried!  They smell fantastic!  Included in the bunch is achillea, chamomile, calendula, lemon balm, linden, malva, silver thyme, and verbena.  There are also some cranberry and red pepper seeds!

Do I just plant the cranberry seeds?  I'm especially intrigued by those and will have to do some research.



...and tea!  Tazo's Berryblossom White, Traditional Medicinal's Nighty Night, PC's Feeling Soothed, and Four O'Clock's Energy and Chocolate Spice.  There are lots of organic and fair trade ingredients.  I've never tried any Four O'Clock products but they seem right up my alley and I think I may have to try the chocolate spice within the next couple of minutes.

Thank you so much for the awesome gift Burgz!
