Looky Looky what I got
blupiasan is awesome

And how did you know I like to go barefoot?
There are book flowers and book buds. The shirt even says I love books. I don't know how you did it but you captured it perfectly. Now I'm nervous for you to see yours

I have been on a hair bow kick lately. I feel I hit the sweet spot on the perfect dimensions, perfect size to accessorize any outfit. I added some custom printed fabric buttons to a few of them for a little extra zazz! Smiley

When my Great Aunt passed away last year, I ended up taking her embroideries (since no else wanted them and, as a cross stitcher I know how much time must have gone into them so I couldn't bear to leave them) but they weren't really my sort of thing and were in frames per that weren't helping. I picked up a couple of cheap frames and sprayed them to bring out the colours in the embroidery, and I really love how they came out.

The two cottages are by my great aunt Alice, who was a really awesome, generous, kind hearted lady and died peacefully in her armchair, having fallen asleep knitting and eating jelly babies :-) The other piece was done for her by my grandma, who taught me to sew when I was in primary school and was really instrumental in setting me on the path of this hobby that brings me so much joy.
I love that now I have a little piece of these two inspirational ladies, brightening my walls like they brighten my life

These were pretty much all made for swaps...
They are cotton, with (mostly) stem stitch embroidery  (some back stitch) done free hand in regular dmc thread. A couple have stamped details too

There's a lot of doctor who...

And harry potter. Plus neuroscience, fruit, buttons, beaches (the shell had a little hole worn through when I found it so I just sewd straight thought that to attach it)...

Alice in wonderland, Fantastic Mr Fox

The little press stud tabs on those doctor who ones, act as switches to turn on the flashing blue LEDs on top of the TARDISs - see...

I couldn't manage to get a photo of the other one lit (couldn't time it right with the flashing light and eventually gave up!)

And firefly themed...

Sign language, moon... Lots more harry potter!

I've used this owl print a few times...

a handful of random ones

And Little My, cause she's awesome

 Grin I received both of my craft packages yesterday!

I'm super stoked to share both with you guys.
First up was my surprise package from littlefawnpug, It was bulging out of the mailbox at the old house (I'm in the middle of moving.)
It was full of beautiful cotton yarn. I really don't know how you managed to fit all that in that package!

Thank you so much! I'm already plotting some market bag type knits. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

And then the second package came from moriarT (All the way from Australia! holy crap) It was in the mailbox at the new house.

Excited for foreign candy, and such an exotic looking package.


I've done enough swaps, and received wonderful things that I will cherish and keep forever. THIS IS TOTALLY AT THE TOP OF THE LIST.  I seriously don't know how to make words. It's beautiful. I love it. (Life has been pretty crazy lately) And I was so stoked about it that I almost cried about it. Yeah. I know. Hormones right? Thank you so much. It's super awesome. Every stitch is perfect.

I've been so busy with trying to finish with the redecorating of the new home I didn't notice that I had received from "smmarrt".

OH it's lovely. It's from one of my quotes from pinterest. Thank you for leaving it the larger size. I'm thinking of making it part of a bunting for my "craft"room

She sent some extra flowers which I will also incorporate into the bunting.

"Smmarrt" Thanks again I love it!

This game board carry envelope is for my cousin's boyfriend, he goes to a game board evening every week and normally wraps them up in plastic bags to keep them dry and protected, so she asked if I would make a more sustainable version!
The outer layer is waterproof, it's oilcloth -  the stuff for making table cloths from! Since Kyle loves to travel and his favorite board game (and mine! Ticket to Ride) is based on a map, this print seemed appropriate

Most of the work in this project isn't actually in the final piece; I spent hours practicing working with this thick shiny slippy fabric, and had to redesign the construction I wanted to have to be workable for me (I'm sure a more experienced seamstress would have been ok!)
I've also never added a buckle before, and the button on the stopper is inset to sit flat (K is for Kyle, his name :-) ) which I've never done before... So a lot of firsts!
It's also twice lined, one in stuffing to add protection and one in fabric. All the lining is properly structured to mimic the bag.
We measured up a load of game boxes to work out the best size to for most of them (they are a couple of outliers, but to fit those the bag would have been unwieldy, not useful for all the rest...)

The binding took an age, that's another area I practiced loads before starting on the real thing. I've done binding before but always felt it wasn't great and let projects down, whereas I was pretty pleased with how this turned out

And a little pocket inside to store cards or what not. That was going to be placket but I ran out of time (I only fished up the day before Kyle's birthday) so it's just simple patch.
The label is in that weird place to act as a patch over a small last minute snipping accident (I genuinely thought I was going to cry for a second before I thought of putting the lable over it!)
My cousin was super pleased with it and I guess I'll hear later if the birthday boy agrees too!!

I know this is a pretty simple project compared too some of the awesome stuff that you guys do, but I'm not much of a machine sewer so I was really pleased that it came out ok! Thanks for looking

I am finally back on craftster, I live between two houses for the academic year (now almost over..yay) and I spent all weekend building with my SO and DD in the other house, we are building a sunroom..it haaas been interesting and we are making progress. But now I am properly home and can update you all on the fabulous fabulous package I receved from craftymammabee

It is amazing, I got it from the postman as I was running out the door on friday and had a chance for a quick look, but havent had a chance to really appreciate it again until today..prepare to be exceedingly jealous. This is the whole set. It is amazing (I felt so lucky to have her as a partner!)

first a wonderful cushion cover, with tentacles!! love the colours and it will add to my growing collection of really funky craftster cushion covers. It is really fun and the colour combinations really work.

And this amazing zippered pouch. I love zippered pouches, constantly moving from A-->B pouches are really useful but more importantly because they are handled a lot, I get to appreciate them every time. And this one will really be appreciated. I honestly cannot decide which side I love more, The detail and technical ability in the anatomical heart blows me away. And I simply adore the colours and the style of the other side. Plus it is a really good size and well padded to keep delicate things protected...can you tell I really really love this!

also this journal cover. It rocks! again I cannot decide which side I love more, tentacles or the patchwork. My favourite colour and I particularly love the way you have 'edged' the covers in a contrasting fabric. I really want to know how you did the tentacles? was it a sencil? transfer? paint? enquiring minds want to know?

and if all that lovliness wasn't enough, she also sent me these really pretty little thank you cards, with flamingos..I have a flamingo obsession and these are perfect, I love the different papers for the envelopes

thank you so so much CraftyMamaBee, I have loved crafting for you and hope we get paired up again sometime.

Love that bag, may have to add something similar to hubby's christmas list.

Quite amazed that I have something to submit so early on in the semester, but saw the prompt and this set of inchies was perfect.

Brief Description: I love swapping inchies and a recent swap I took part in was for flower inchies. This was two sets of 6 each going to 2 different partners. The images used (all from different Laurie Furnell collections) are both bright in colour and some of the images are folksy in their design.
