I have to say that so far everyone's packages have been awesome. We really are a lucky bunch!

Due to unforeseen RL circumstances pictures today not yesterday! Y'all are gonna be completely jealous of my package from littlebluegirl once you see the goodies I got. You may be less jealous *cough*appreciative*cough* of my action shot obsession Tongue

First we have my favourite item, the 'Captain Tightpants' t-shirt. Cunningly when I received on monday I was wearing tight leatherette trousers (pants for the americans) so of course off came the Star Trek dress and on went this. Thankfully the woman I sit next to at work has watched firefly and so was very impressed also. Gotta spread the shiny.

P.S. I'm much happier than I look - I just don't smile in photos.

Next is the blue sun stencilled bag which must have been hell to cut out. Also in this photo and the rest are the lovely mittens, which I believe are knitted, inspired by 'two by two, hands of blue'


Next we have a couple of bought items that are no less awesome for it. A Hawaiian shirt style bag for Wash and a beaded notebook for Inara.


And last but not least we have an Inara-style compact mirror, A tiny jayne hat keyring/bag charm/random glove attachment and a fabulous felted strawberry which you're very right to feel proud of littlebluegirl - it's disturbingly accurate.

Sorry about the bad hat angle but it kept spinning...

Thanks so much littlebluegirl! I love it all!

that embroidery is fantastic.  awesome crafting Smiley

That embroidery was almost the death of me. After buying an iron-on transfer pencil that didn't work I had to scrap my original plan and free hand it with a random gel pen. Never mind finally finishing and finding out I'd managed to sew part of the rest of the dress to it...ah the joys of crafting Wink

Be prepared for dazzlement tomorrow people when I post the goodies littlebluegirl sent me! Mucho awesome

I'm so glad you like it all littlebluegirl, it was a lot of fun to craft. Also I included matching thread out of paranoia because of my lack of embroidery experience but I recently realised it means the dress can continue to be adorned if you so choose.

That dress is awesome!

It is isn't it - and for that you can thank primark. Shopping whilst not a craft as such is something I'm fairly proficient in Tongue

All packed up and ready to go. Just waiting for the post office to open tomorrow - which is now much further away since they closed the local one. Now it takes a 20-30 minute walk instead of less than 5. Hope you like it littlebluegirl! Now to start letting the inadequacy anxiety in!
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Embroidered, painted and crayon-ed canvas - Also, Nino's Birthday Present on: October 16, 2008 03:58:06 PM
When I asked my friend Nino what she wanted for her birthday all I could get out of her was one word 'friends' so I decided to do a portrait of me and her. Well my reference photo was not only a terrible picture of me but had been shrunk by the owner of the camera before I could stop it. So I scrapped that I idea, found another picture and just did Nino  Grin

I painted her in, then embroidered her, then coloured in the background with crayons (I *heart* crayons). I then decided that wasn't enough and added the flower.



Flower close up.




I apologise for the bad photos and the inclusion of me. I was too lazy to get up and try and use my isight properly.

So what do you think? Just thought I'd share.

I haven't been able to get past planning so far - payday soon! - but I was at the pub earlier (Don't worry, my drinks were bought for me) when we fairly randomly decided to start singing 'The Ballad of Serenity'. Browncoat moment fo' sure.

hey... i may be being a pest, but i was wondering if everyone has recieved swap information yet? I hadn't and wanted to check before going to the head... who is my swap partner it seems...Hmm. Must watch more firefly. Still not the first thing in my head when i wake up yet. Damnit!

I've received swap information and I think everyone else has. You're probably just suffering from the weirdness of the human brain. I'm sure if you pm supersolar she'll send it asap.

I just had a really shiny idea that made my craftload go up considerably - so worth it though...
