My camera's battery died and I didn't realize it, annoyingly, which is why these've taken so long to put up. But I have pictures of CraftADDChick's treasure chain kit! Cheesy

There's several pages of instructions, with pictures for each step -- which is perfect for me, because otherwise I'd be afraid of messing up and wasting the shiny supplies. Smiley But this way I can see what I'm supposed to do as well as read about it!

Only one picture of the kit proper, because the closeups I tried to take of the beads didn't come out well. (Stupid camera auto-flash.) You get a decent idea of how pretty the seed beads are here, though. The accent beads look like they'll go great with them, and I love the green-and-gold combination. I'm very grateful for having a case to keep all these in, too. Wink (If the instructions look wrinkled, it's because I'm actually squishing them into the case for now too. Yay for storage!)

Thank you so much, CraftADDChick!

I got glittergirl94's crochet kit the other day, so here's pictures! Cheesy

Four skeins of yarn; I love the multicolored one especially. Cheesy This is actually fairly accurate in terms of what shades the skeins are, despite the weird lighting in my room, so yay!

Crochet tools! Three hooks, a book of stitches, a set of stitch-markers that glittergirl94 said she got from the Sweat Shop Swap, a button, and glittergirl94's crafty business card. (There were also two pages of patterns and crochet links, but I didn't photograph that. Smiley )

And a close-up of the stitch markers, though the aforementioned weird lighting in my room didn't treat them too well, bah. They're very pretty, though. Smiley

Thank you, glittergirl94! Cheesy I suspect crochet is going to replace my Knifty Knitter as "random crafty thing I can carry everywhere", now. Wink

Balletfreak might be first to send, but looks like I get to be first to inaugurate the gallery! Wink

I asked for a glass-etching kit; I've never done it before, but when my aunt and I were reading the Craftster book, she recommended that I try. So now I have an excuse to, as soon as I can find the time . . . Smiley All the red in the backgrounds of these pictures is my bedsheets, incidentally.

Gloves, stickers, etching cream, and -- of course -- a glass to etch. I love the glass; the shape is great, and it doesn't have any facets or anything that could be annoying for a first etching attempt. And it's definitely going to be what I first try etching. Smiley

Balletfreak included a card, which I'm pretty sure was handmade; definitely hand-painted, at least, from the texture. It's really pretty.

And finally, the instructions! If anyone wants, I can type up what the booklet says, but I think these are big enough to be readable -- though it might take a little fiddling with contrast. Smiley The booklet is handmade, and great; I'm definitely going to hang onto this. Cheesy

Thank you again, balletfreak! Cheesy

I finally got to open my package!

. . . unfortunately, the post office apparently wasn't too careful with it: some of redheadgeek's swap items were damaged, and one appears to be destroyed.  Angry (I say "appears to be" because, on a partial unwrap, I could feel that it was in pieces; I haven't unwrapped it all the way to see just how bad the damage is, but it's definitely bad.) Which is a real shame, because the swap items are wonderful.

Redheadgeek and I did one large all-sins item and seven small items (one per sin). For the small items, she painted ceramic mugs with the names of the sin and neat patterns; for the large item, she made an AMAZING quilt. My pictures don't do justice to it at all; the main fabrics are gorgeous red and orange, a pretty tie-dyed-ish fabric on the back, and a black and red satin border. I have no idea where she got the pictures for the sin squares; screenprinting, maybe? If so, they came out REALLY well.


The Wrath mug got chipped around the top, which annoys me especially because I think I like its design the best. Flames, yay! Next to it is the Wrath square on the quilt (which I did for all of them).

Sloth came through intact, whew. There's no pattern on the mug -- very Slothful, redheadgeek.  Wink

Speckled Pride mug, which lost its handle. I think the Pride square is one of my favorites off the quilt.

The Greed mug and its little green dollar bills is great! Second favorite mug, definitely. Smiley

Gluttony made it through okay! (As you can see from the fact that its handle got photographed. Wink )

Envy also lost its handle, drat.

No mug picture, because Lust is the one that got really damaged, but I love the quilt square here, lots.

Shot of the back of the quilt! It looks more orangey in the photo than it really is, but you can get a sense for the pattern and all. Smiley

And the piece de resistance, a shot of the whole quilt (awkwardly) draped over my bed (so I could photograph the whole thing at once).

I love this so much, redheadgeek. Thank you! Cheesy

5  Felt plush dolls! (x2) (images working now) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Sariel on: January 16, 2007 08:58:11 AM
The below were gifts for a friend; both are characters from www.sjgames.com/in-nomine. (Laurence, Malakite Archangel of the Sword, and Lilith, Demon Princess of Freedom.) Designs were a blend of how In Nomine describes the characters and how my friend views them, with clothing made up by me. All patterns original.

Malakim traditionally have black wings and wear least four chains; I only did two because felt chains are hard. The outfit was inspired by a Japanese boys' school uniform, though people think it looks like a priest's outfit -- which isn't a bad thing; Laurence is very Catholic. Smiley There's a teeny sword in a scabbard attached to one of the Oath-chains at his hip; a velcro dot is on the hilt and on the black glove so he can hold the sword if my friend wants. I think next time I won't stuff the "tabs" on the wings, but it seemed to work well this time. Wings are also velcroed on.

Lilith, in the game, is associated heavily with green; thus the color-choice. The design on her coat is supposed to be a heart with a hook in it, which is a symbol associated with her. She usually wears a lot of gems, but it's hard to do gems in felt, so I went for gold bands instead -- and yes, they're supposed to look vaguely like shackles. The skintone and hair color ("black with red highlights") were from my friend; the braiding idea was mine. And tricky, but I like how it came out. Smiley

Edited to fix code.

Edited again to fix image host. Sad
