We sure do!  I'm a few months off from adding more swaps, but I'd love to swap with you then.  Feel free to nag me about it after awhile!

I bet the edges on those leaves are getting so nice; frayed and soft.

THAT is super cool!  Congratulations on figuring it out!

How did I miss this?  I love them!  I, too, have a tree fetish AND a leaf fetish.  Plus green is my favorite color.  Sigh.  Have your guests been afraid to use them to dry their hands?

Great find and kudos to you for going back and asking!  I've read several places that it's not good to store cloth in dry cleaning bags (traps moisture, off-gassing could discolor, etc.) so if you haven't already you might want to remove your awesome stash from the bags.

No one would be able to tell this is your first embroidery unless you told them!  And it's even more awesome that you found your own pattern as a beginner.  The colors are great and while it's noble to pursue quality stitching (at least that's what I tell myself when pulling out unsatisfactory stitches) it's obvious here that your stitches have feeling which would be a shame to lose to "accuracy."

I made this Trekkie (or for those who perfer it...Trekker) charm bracelet for bluemopitz in the Star Trek Swap Round 4. ...
 Hope you were inspired too! Grin

First time I've ever seen "Trekkie/Trekker" and "Charm" in the same sentence.  Wink But this is totally T AND charming!

Live long and prosper with the perfect accessory



To quote Scottie, "Every woman has her charms, Captain."  (that may not be verbatim, but it's close)

YOWZA!  I have that font, because I couldn't resist, and it never occurred to me to do something so awesome as this with it!  BRILLIANT!  I may have to do something similar.  I'll try not to copy exactly, but...

FANTASTIC!  The methods, the materials, the outcome... everything!  I'm eager to see another post with the hats you mentioned.

I like that your organizers make it look like you've been collecting and organizing your craft space and stuff over the years.  It sounds silly, but it's not unlike interior decorating that reflects the life of the people rather than the showroom of the manufacturer.  I can see the appeal of the matching/coordinating storage boxes, but I think I'd feel more inspired and creative (i.e. curious) with a more collected-as-we-go collection of containers.

If you use ceramic for your cup, etc. you can get inexpensive ceramic paint at the craft store and you won't have to seal it or worry about it coming off.  Sometimes you cure it in the oven, but that's it.

With the right high-adhesion primer you can use acrylic house paint (or craft paint) on just about anything. 

I think embroidering your blood spots on your towels would be SO classy (yes, classy) and high-end looking (but a lot more work).
