Quote from: yamwam link=topic=115319.msg1155538#msg1155538

It's called Atomique now: [url
http://sublimestitching.com/atomique.html[/url]

I saw a post on a board here where someone had embroidered the patterns onto a space-themed purse. It was so cute! I wish I'd bookmarked it.

of course! I was thinking the tree & the bird were from a sublime stitching pattern called Spaced out.

Oops. Sorry.

So glad that everything arrived!

The tree and the bird were free patterns from needlecrafter.com--they were both labeled to be by Alice Brooks. The atomique patterns are so fun. I've seen some cute things done with them--by beetastic for one!

It's funny--sometimes I feel like my crafts look better in pics than in person, or maybe it's just yamwam's great photo skills. Smiley I had a lot of fun making the towel and hankie and know that they are in a good home now. I couldn't have parted with them otherwise. Wink

Wanna see the fabulous stuff I received from yamwam? I know you do!

It is a sugar skull tea towel, a packet of great patterns, and a very cute knitting card. The sugar skull towel is done all in chain stitch, with I think just 2 threads of floss. I am so impressed! I love it so much and can't imagine just using it in my kitchen. I really need to find a way to feature it in my classroom for the whole month of October! (I'm a Spanish teacher.)

Here are the pics

Nice job yamwam. What do you use to transfer onto black fabric? Are the sugar skulls original or adapted sketches?

Thanks! The sugar skulls are adapted from a Day of the Dead colouring page I found on the Internet: http://www.multiculturalarts.com/colorskull.pdf. What I embroidered doesn't look exactly like the colouring page because I didn't trace it, I drew freehand on the black fabric. I originally used a white pencil crayon but it kept rubbing off so I tried again with a silver gel pen, which worked way better.

I haven't figured out where I packed my camera yet (damn forced nomadic life style), but rest assured you will soon be seeing some truly awesome loot from Gatsby Girl. 

She sent me some wonderful cards and a totally awesome blinged out flash drive with patterns!

Thanks so much!

Since Trifarina has received and is still in the throes of unpacking after a long trip, I figured I'd go ahead and post the photos of the package I sent her -- one more thing she can cross off her to-do list.

Here is the group shot:



The package consisted of three embroidered notecards and a "blinged out" flash drive with patterns based on 90-some classic tattoo designs.



I tried to mix up each of the cards a little, so the seahorse is done with a split stitch using variegated pink floss.



Stem stich all the way, baby.



The body is chain stitch. Then there are the beads. Ummm, yeah, I kind of got carried away with the beads. But, like rhinestones, I think everything's better with beads.

So, there they all are. I'm so pleased you liked everything, Trifarina. And I do believe this concludes the show-and-tell portion of this here swap.

oh....I am so sad that I passed on this one!  I LOVE the jellyfish card...it's so beautiful...and it woulndn't have the same impact if you left the beads out. 

Everything is so beautiful!
