21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Tea Towel Tour 5 [CLOSING TODAY - SEND Sep-2] on: September 01, 2009 09:30:45 PM
PearliePie -- I totally know what you're feeling!!

I was going to get to the post office today buuuuut....
Today was my first day putting my expensive education to the test -- my first time working with a Deaf student (I'm a Deaf Ed major.) My student didn't want to be paired with the "short" one!!!
So... my day was off to a rough start, I haven't been able to bring myself to do much of anything since getting home!

I'm putting the finishing touches on my towel tonight at Craft Night & sending it off first thing tomorrow!  That is, after I take pictures to blog & post in the gallery.

I finally started my towel, just a cute little thing saying "Tea Towel Tour #5" with a fawn & bunny looking at it.  Any of you crazy enough to embroider in the car? That's exactly what I did... we had to drive about two hours today to look at & purchase a new(er) car.  It was slightly difficult, because the driver window was rolled down... but I managed!

You knotters sound like you've fallen off your rockers Tongue

I dabble in both knotting and weaving, sometimes I'll weave AND knot the same end.

Greenlightgo -- Oh my goodness, Egyptian or Indian seems seriously ambitious to me! 

Wow... it seems like there's going to be a lot of sea/nautical themes!

My main source is coloring pages & finds on flickr!  Google image search is the easiest way to find coloring pages from multiple sites.

I'm excited... which seems to be the echo in this thread!! 

I wasn't going to start anything on my towel, but I found some really cute coloring pages of fawns.  I need to do some kind of embroidery right now to de-stress myself, but nothing else excites me! 

My theme is nature/forest... since I'm pretty outdoorsy.

Thanks for all the nice comments!

Especially about the satin stitch... I hate hate hate hate hate satin stitch, both doing it & how it looks from person to person.  I dislike the edges of it a lot of the time (on my work & others,) so I always plan to line it with a backstitch. 

It's just one of those things Cheesy

Hey rectangel, is it okay if I do the quilt blocks to send out? The blocks will be seperate to assure there will be enough space around the art to sew into the quilt ya know? BUT...since all the images will be going into one project I didn't think it would be against the rules. I still want everyone to play off each others work. I think it will come together nicely.


From what I understand, this still isn't OK because that's still taking away the concept of one organic piece.  The idea is to have it be one piece to begin with, but it's ok if you want to cut it up later.  Here's what the organizer had to say when the same question was asked earlier...

Please don't come up with too many restrictions for your group to accomodate.  The absolute best thing to send is a white finished edge piece of fabric (ie a tea towel).  DO NOT mark off where you want each person to stitch or send patches for people to stitch...if you decide to cut them up later that is fine but part of the fun is designs are meant to be done as one piece and you will notice if you look through past galleries that they often organically come to interact with the designs already on the towel.  It is really cool Smiley

Basically, your idea is taking away the concept of multiple people working together on one thing, interacting with what's already there. 
Here's an example of a similar swap, but of moleskins, where the artists worked on the same notebooks & everything flowed together...

I was paranoid that I wasn't going to make it in, since this seems to be a pretty popular swap!

I'm going to be sending out a 18x30 tea towel, still haven't figured out if I want to do anything to it beforehand.
