I received a great package today!

I love the pretty reusable bag that can fold up into a little zippered tote!  A wetbag that I asked for, unpaper towels (love the print!), cat toy, dryer balls.

Close up of bag and matching pouch.

Thank you!

Ta da! I received today from the fabu-tastic sonjaboo and I'm still chuckling.

Here is the card and some awesome vintage drink stirrers. Erika says I will probably do something crafty with them rather than mixing drinks. I spent one or three awkward dinners with my parents at Anthony's in college (trying not to act or look too, you know, altered) so one or two of them may become Christmas ornaments!

And the piece de la resistance, a tray for my drinks!

It says "I'm on the martini diet - so far I've lost two days!"

Close up of the groovy stamping (?):

And a close up of the groovy housewife:

This will definitely make me smile every day - thanks so much Erika - it was a blast swapping with you again.

I got bunny's package in the mail today!!!!! It is amazingly awesome and it's so me!!!

First off, Super Hero cards!!!! They are perfect and I can't wait to use them! I also got an adorable aperture science to do list! And she gave me the cutest chapsticks! Frozen, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who style!!! I am NOT going to lose this set of chapstick!

I squeed so loudly opening this my husband was a bit worried... and I may have taken my pants off and put them on immediately because Magic and Harry Potter!!! These are my new favorite pants to wear around, I super excited it's getting closer to fall because I'll never have to take them off! Wink

I was at a lose for words when I first saw this. It is absolutely perfect!!! I don't know how you did it but ALL my randoms are there and they all go together so nicely!!!

I am absolutely amazed at the time and dedication bunny spent making every single one of these patches. The stitches are so perfect!

I seriously can't decided which patch is my favorite! Seriously bunny, THANK YOU!!!! I love everything!!!!  Kiss

Well, my partner finally received her int'l package, but doesn't seem to be posting the shrine I sent. Here it is!

Inside Lid:



The bunny is felted, the blanket is knit, and the sheep are q-tips, matches and fluff. Everything else is paper, sticks and toothpicks, and a bit of bubble wrap. Smiley

i feel so guilty, y'all! i think most of the time half the fun of the swap is getting on the forums and gossiping, and throwing hints, and watching what everyone is up to, and most of all gossiping with your partner! and on this swap, i know i've been lax in providing that for the amazing miss sheepblue, who has had to track me down and ask me if i still had a pulse more than once this time around.  Embarrassed my bad, sheep! thank you so much for your patience and understanding with my crazy hectic life! now i promised pictures of the amazing goodies i got from sheepblue like, two days ago; but between technical camera difficulties and the fact that i've literally been crafting my happy hiney off every spare moment the last week (hey! i perform best under pressure, what can i say?) i'm only just now getting around to it. so, without further ado....

here is the terribly cute handmade card miss sheepblue included. in it she says many incredibly kind things that i'm quite sure i don't deserve. but i'm appreciative that she thinks them none the less!

on top of the package: a super cute halloweeny vinyl tablecloth! i think i am going to keep it in the package until halloween and set my table with it then. and when halloween is over i may use it to re-cover my arm-rest at the tattoo shop where i work! it's so cool, and very me!

next i opened this amazing business card wallet. i love star wars, and i loooooove this fabric! but that was only the beginning! check out the AWESOME business cards that were included! i will be using these for sure! haha!

next, this super duper cute and wonderfully accurate little embroidery! i will be hanging it above my crafting area in short order. i love this!

aaaand theeeen: check out this super cute teeny tiny stumpworked flower! (i put the nickel in for size reference) it is so tiny and so precious in every detail! i have no idea what i will do with it just yet, but it will be epic!  Cheesy

aand i got a little peepee! haha! sheepblue said she didn't make this one, but thought i needed it nonetheless! i quite agree! it's a chapstick coozy!

if you haven't already limbered up your pinning fingers, ladies, now's the time! cause it only gets more amazing from here!  "eyeball" this for a minute, wouldja? how cool are all those veiny strings?

not only is it creepy cool and veiny and delightful just as it is...  but check it out! it's a drawstring pouch! and it's STUFFED with whimsy awesomeness!

aaannnnddd theeeeen..... the piece de resistance! that's right -- all that major spoilage was not even the main show! in addition to everything else, ms sheepblue made me this!

this aaah-MAY-zing mini-art-quilt is so perfectly "me" it just blows me away! i can't say enough about how much i love it! from all the little starwars fabric scraps in it, to the handmade beaded sculpey skull fringe, it is amazing in every detail! and it's meticulously perfect in every stitch!  i can not express enough how incredibly much i love this - it is beautiful!

sheepblue - thank you again sooo much for spoiling me so! i love everything so much, and i just hope that what i'm making for you will be half as loved as everything you've made for me! oh, and one more parting shot - here's a group loot shot - including some stick on mustaches and yummy gummy body parts that were also included!

I got my box of goodies from craftADDchick yesterday! Here's what she sent:

A dino mug (our agreed upon extra), a beautiful card and 2 paint-your-own matryoshka sets with gesso! Yes!

And the cutest crafted item in the whole world:

Guinea pigs are the cutest animals in the whole, wide world and she crocheted me one! Isn't it adorable?

Thank you so much, craftADDchick!

I wasn't expecting it until tomorrow, but to my delight my package from Zalphinian arrived today!

She sent me this ENORMOUS hanging jar filled with seasonal pretties:

Along with this lovely card and a small hanging with a seasonal prayer of thanks (both of which immediately found their way onto the wall in my studio).

Thank you so much, Zal!! I love it, I'm going to hang the jar on the porch as soon as I'm finished typing this up.

I think this is a really interesting suggestion from Thesiger (even though we don't use firescreens much these days)  and I wonder if I can find examples of work done along these lines:

In a lighter vein is the circus scene from a railway poster (plate 82), and one can imagine layers of embroidered net being used to give the effect of light and shade.  I can visualise a glass firescreen with varying thicknesses of net stretched on a frame, the details of the figures, etc., being darned in brightly coloured thread.  But let me not make detailed suggestions, but merely throw some ideas at the readers head and hope they may bear fruit.  Page 101

He goes on to say later in the book,

"It requires as much ingenuity to adapt a design as to invent one, but whether adapted or invented, anything is better than a mere copy of someone else's work and the needle-worker who can adapt a pattern from another source is half-way along the road to being a successful designer."

I heartily concur!  Smiley

Such beautiful bookmarks! The drawing is really amazing in both of these, and I squee'd a little at the Thud quote.  Wink

But there is more to share! My bookmark arrived today from AugustBell and it is so very pretty. Smiley

I love the greens for the background, and the flowers are so neat! The different textures are a lot of fun. Reminds me of the wildflowers growing in my grandparents hay fields.
