Sorry I'm tardy, but I received some very fun candy molds from frosty772 (lo many moons ago) and while clear plastic isn't the easiest thing to photograph, I think I solved that problem. 

Voila mint chocolate stars and happy faces (she also sent award type ribbon thingies and "sweet treat" molds).



Thanks so much frosty, I'll be making a ton of the happy face lollipops for the school bake sale next week. 

P.S.  Today I received a giant bag of delicious smelling coffee from *Maria*.  I think it's toffee (something else sweet smelling) flavoured and I can't wait to have some this afternoon.  It should go nicely with the candy I've made.  Quite the sugar-laden swap I've had.

So much cool stuff.  frosty772 is having camera problems, so I said I'd post a pic of the dishcloths I sent.  Shockingly, I actually remembered to take one.  I made two useful ones and then got bored and started making fancy ones.  Fun!  I think other people should put these on their lists so I can keep making them.   She claims they are too pretty to wash dishes with, but I disagree.   Wink  In any case, here they are in all their bright, tacky glory.

Love those colours tinybits. 

Mine was made for a swap, lapghan size.


The blue is actually navy and it is quite manly looking.  Wink

Finished mine yesterday, just in time for today's baby shower.  Used Caron Simply Soft (Brites) and while I don't particularly like the yarn, I do love the colours that resulted.

CrossStitchinMomma claimed me for "knitting stuff" and here is the wonderful yarn she sent that will hopefully soon be turned into warm winter stuff for some deserving kidlets. 



Thanks so much Momma, it's so pretty.  Sorry my photography skills suck.

Last week (or possibly a couple of weeks ago, unfortunately my memory is aging much faster than the rest of me) I received crochet thread and purse snaps from Dulcinea.  I have securely hidden the snaps from my thieving maternal unit.  Thanks so much.  So many things I want to make from the thread, so little time to actually crochet. 


Then today, I received from em0tionalprayer, who claimed me for stationery stuff and colouring stuff.  The whole she-bang!  Crayons, pencil crayons, gel pens and My Little Pony.....


... with stickers!  YAY!  Thanks so much!

Love the pillow and the sad lamb.  Glad the DVDs and yarn made it.  Also, I know she posted a pic already, but finally here's an "action" shot of the totebag I received from Homerof2.  Eight skeins of yarn, the partially completed round ripple, my hooks, water bottle and  a couple of apples later and there is still tons of room.  It's fantastic.

I received from Dulcinea on Thursday, but this is the first time I've had my camera and computer in the same building.  Sugar 'n Cream for me to play with, in fabulous coordinated colours.  I'm pretty sure this is going to become a bathmat for my new house, but I'll post whatever I come up with eventually.  Thanks so much Dulcinea. 

Man am I bad at photography!

149  Birthday Blanket/Playmat in Crochet: Completed Projects by sunspotted on: September 02, 2007 10:34:17 AM
First time starting a thread, *don't screw up, don't screw up.* 

My nephew's fourth birthday is next week, but they decided to have his party this afternoon.  So, crafting time compacted, I was up 'til 2 a.m. finishing this. 



I started out with this pattern, but we had a difference of opinion during the first blue section, so we parted company and I faked the rest. 

RHSS in Cherry Red, Blue and Black, 58 cms from tip to tip, big enough for his bed or a playmat.  I've never done a round ripple before but I will definitely do one again.  Probably not with webbing as the best way I found to do it was lying on my belly on top of the blanket and it about killed my back.  I expect the nephew will love it though, so it was worth the pain.  I just have to keep his father from stealing it.  Smiley

P.S.  Any resemblance to superheroes living or dead is purely coincidental.  Don't sue me, I've got nothing.

Well I thought I might as well post the pictures of the swap package I sent to zombiecazz, since it's presently sitting at the bottom of an ocean or being enjoyed by a sneaky, craft-loving postal worker. 

I suck at both taking and posting pictures, so please bear with me.  Also I didn't get any close-ups, because again I suck and I figured she could take much better pics when she received. 

The (almost) whole enchilada before being packaged.


After packing into the enormous box that cost approximately as much as a university education to send. 



Sort of close-up of the super AWESOME grown-up margarine tub purse that I made into an ice cream bucket project bag, complete with accessory utility belt.  I am devasted that it is gone forever.  Please revel in its cheesy, tacky glory! 



Inside



Oh, I forgot I got a terrible picture of the wide bobble headband I made too.  It was a gorgeous raspberry coloured mystery yarn from my stash.  I have no more.   Sad



So I shall begin again.  I have no idea if I will have the heart to replicate anything or if I'll just start from scratch.  Zombiecazz, I'm so very sorry this happened.  I'm scared to death to mail anything crafted ever again.
