These are very cute.  Your fiber art is awesome.

Very nice work.  I'm sure your swap partner will love this.  Your work is superb.

I have passed on the information about the cheesecloth to my wife.  She's very interested in your process.

I like how the wooden leaves have red and green hues. Did you inked them?
This is a lovely lush foliage top.


When I sanded the top of the box, it had a funky red stain on it.  Some of it came off with the sanding, so I went with that.  I made a wash with some green acrylic paint and water, and washed a few of the leaves, just to give it some interest.

So, I've been working on Christmas gifts and this is probably the most ambitious project of the year for me.  I took an old wooden cigar box that had black paint on it, and partially sanded the top.  Then I burned this pattern on it, most of which is free-handed.  Finished it off with several coats of polyurethane.  This is a special gift for a very special friend.

Love your vintage trailer.  Looks like our little weekender.

So, I received from my partner, Teag, a couple of days ago.  I waited until she had received to open my packages.  I have been royally spoiled.

Warning: pic heavy post.

First, my stocking.  I think this is my new favorite.  I love the colors and the design.  It even has my name embroidered on it.



Then, there were a lot of edibles.  Mostly different chocolates.  I sampled a little, but most of it is tucked for emergencies. Smiley



Then, more edibles and store-bought items.  My favorite cookies, shortbread, some awesome tea that I haven't tried yet.  Coloring pencils and a pouch, index cards, a bell, giant clothespin, a beautiful crystal, a couple of vintage pens for my collection, and she even got me a sewing kit.  I don't know how to sew, so I guess I'm going to learn.



The handmades:  A journal that I can decorate as I please, with many pages for my thoughts, some coloring pages that she created, a couple of moon and stars plaques, and....



...A couple of my very favorite items.  A handpainted wooden box with my name on it.  I'll be able to keep my treasures in this.


A couple of Pinocchio heads.  I adore these and will have them on my tree very soon.



And the most amazing items, four small globes that will fit very nicely in my miniature house.  Folks, these are less than one inch high, and I love them.



Thank you, Teag for an awesome swap.

I received my stocking today.  Everything is wrapped except the edibles, and will stay wrapped at least until my partner has received.  I can say this much.  I am blown away with my stocking.  It is a very well made work of art.  It even has my name embroidered on it.

And there was a considerable amount of chocolate in there.  I had to sample a couple of pieces, and I declare them to be superb.

That's a great looking stocking, and I love the dreamcatcher and earrings.  Nice package.

I mailed today as well.  I wasn't about to miss a deadline.  Had to use a large flat rate box.  It wouldn't all fit otherwise.

Hope you like what I'm sending, Teag.
