Thanks everyone! I really love how the pillow came out, I was afraid what I had in my head wouldn't actually materialize, but it did.

It's always weird to see stuff I've had in my house and been working on so long show up on the internet a few days later. I'm glad it's found a good new home though Smiley

Hey, Everyone.  I just got back from an out-of-town wedding and was happy to find a package waiting for me in the main office of my apartment building.  I can't stop gushing over the Tori stuff Rhino sent me.  She put a lot of thought into her crafts.

Here they are:

A wall hanging with a holder for a Tori figurine



The Boys for Pele figurine comes with her own piglet



Stocking detail



There's a tattoo on her back of a piano and the words "Boys for Pele"



A "Blood Roses" knitted purse with a handmade lining and belt handle



Some lyrics from "Blood Roses" have been inked into the lining



And an "Icicle" scarf knitted with zippers, bits of wedding dress, lace, cotton, mohair, Barbie hands, wool, rabbit pelts, acrylic yarn, polyester ribbons, vinyl, etc.



Thank you, Rhino!

Librarylolita I am so happy you liked my interpretations of her songs, this was a gas Smiley
ps the Tori figurine can also sit on the edge of the pot if you plan on planting a little seedling in there:)

Rhino, those are some awesome and creative ways to interpret the songs! I think the Icicle scarf is my favorite, but I love the bag too.

thank you all,  only wish i had a small bible to weave into the yarn that song is so deep it still gives me chills.
the barbie hands are there for a duel purpose as well not only pretty to look at but they close the scarf even on a windy day Smiley

I received my package too from bohemian_felt!  Just wait until you see the pictures from this, I'm still drooling.  Amazing stuff.  I actually went back to the post office and waylaid my parcel to add even more to it.  I'm so overjoyed at what I received that I had to add way, way more!!  XOX
