Thanks for a great month, ladies!
Habu Textiles Designer Yarn. I had one skein left over from this project. It's really nifty stuff... looks like cotton balls on string, or like someone flayed a Chinese Silkie chicken. This skein is complete, with ball band (although I took it off at one point, so it's taped back on.) The scarf in the link was knitted on size 11's in garter stitch, 25 stitches across, but you could use this one skein to make a decorative scarflette of a decent length if you decreased that to 20 stitches and knit till the skein ran out. It would also make a delicious addition to rapunzel scarves! Yarn stats: Habu item A-29, "tobi moire," color #1. 100% polyester, 68.5 yards, 1/2 oz (14 grams).

Crochet Thread Grab Bag. This is a vintage thrift store find. Four partial balls (white, ecru, varigated pink and varigated purple) plus a mini-ball of cherry red.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Msviolaceous/Craft%20Projects/crochetcotton.jpg

Handpainted Roving - "Berry Lemonade". This is the only roving I will have for a while! It is two ounces of soysilk top. It features a gorgeous lemony yellow and a color that is somewhere between fuschia and violet, shot through with pale blue. I have pre-fluffed it for you so it will be somewhat easier to spin.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Msviolaceous/Craft%20Projects/berrylemonade.jpg

Purple Passion Punch. 100% wool. 87 yards/50 grams. 18 st/21 r on size 10 needles. This yarn smelled strongly of sulphur for some reason when I was dyeing it, but after much washing and drying it has mostly faded. Also, the color in this picture isn't as true as most of my other pictures... the yarn is a bit more "plummy" than it appears here. I have two skeins dyed together, so I'm going to keep them together for now in case someone wants to do a larger project. If two people each want to claim a single skein, PM me and I'll change it.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Msviolaceous/Craft%20Projects/purplepassionpunch.jpg

Stormy Weather. Wool/nylon/cotton blend, 50 grams, 131 yards. 16st/21rows to four square inches. This yarn was another experiment with black food coloring. The charcoal has tinges of red. The other color is a lovely grey-blue. This yarn will self-stripe.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Msviolaceous/Craft%20Projects/stormyweather.jpg

Denim: Wool/acrylic/nylon blend, 50 grams, 137 yards. 23st/24rows to four square inches. This yarn was dyed with a single tone of food coloring, with varied color saturation to make a wide range of tones that harmonize beautifully.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Msviolaceous/Craft%20Projects/denim.jpg

Nightshade: Wool/nylon/cotton blend, 50 grams, 131 yards. 16st/21rows to four square inches. This yarn was an experiment with black food coloring. The colors in the picture are true to life, and I'm thrilled with how it turned out. Because black food coloring is a blend of the other colors, you can see some separation of the red and blue in the lighter grey, but it's subtle and I think it makes the yarn even cooler. This will self-stripe, and I think it would make a neat hat or wristwarmers.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Msviolaceous/Craft%20Projects/nightshade.jpg

Neon Trio: Recycled yarn, a silk/acrylic/angora blend. I'm not sure of yardage. When I measured the pink one, I came up with approximately 180 yards, which seems off to me, but I don't have a niddy noddy. It looks to be about a sport weight, so my measurements might be right. The green is a little bigger than the pink, and the purple is smaller (and split up into two skeins, wrapped around each other in the photo). I dyed these with kool aid and food coloring. Because the yarn is recycled, it is kind of fragile. The angora hairs wore off during the dying process. For added strength, you could double-strand it or carry them with something else.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v472/Msviolaceous/Craft%20Projects/neontrio.jpg

Heart of Stone Earrings. I know most semiprecious stones, but I don't know what this is. It looks like a mahogany agate with streaks of shimmery tiger's eye. It has a lot of depth, in large, smooth, substantial stone hearts. They were so nifty that I didn't want to do too much to distract from them, but I did make an extra-long wire wrap coil at the top to give an elegant length to the drop. The gold-plated findings bring out the golden streaks in the stone. The result is a clean and simple, feminine yet strong piece.

lapoli's lovelies

let it be known i have an 80lb dog that likes to sit on soft things and a 14lb cat that likes my yarn.  i am in north carolina.

***Each claim comes with a special present!***



Although the photo is sideways, and not terribly color-accurate, you're looking at a dusty purple alpaca blend, bulky weight yarn, kool-aid dyed by me.  100grams/120yards/110meters.  2 points and it can be yours!

new!

These are beautifully colored, lavender scented bath salts.  Each bag comes with approximately 2 teaspoons of salts.  I have 4 purple/lavender organza bags and 4 cream/white organza bags. 4 for 1 point!





Both cloths are standard dish/wash cloth size and are made of 100% cotton -- machine washable + lay them flat to dry to retain their shape.  Each is actually not a muted green as pictured, but rather a bright blue that doesn't photograph well.  1 point each makes it yours!



Petite soaps!  3 for 1/2 point, 6 for 1 point. Your choice of colors and limited fragrances (lavender, lime, cinammon, etc).  PM me if you want me to whip up something custom for you.

new!




Bath fizzies! 1 point for a set of three.  The top picture includes three basic shapes.  The bottom picture is of a set of three that I'll call the "fruit basket."  Each purple fizzie is gently scented with a lavender/vanilla blend and is sure to wipe away stresses!  Don't like an entire set?  PM me and we can mix and match!



Green knit headband with beads/metallic thread.  Pretty, but a bit large.  If you've got a small head, I'll block it to try to make it shrink a bit more. If you're interested, I'll take a picture of me wearing it so you can see how it fits. 1/2 point.



Un-Felted Soap -- This is a Calendula Toms of Maine bath soap surrounded by warm + fuzzy wool.  With warm  water and gentle use, it will felt slightly, exfoliate your skin and make waking up in the morning just a bit more fun! 1 point.



Two items here:

#1 - Fruit Baby Hat.  Can be custom with colors, but PM me first please to  make sure I've got time to get it out to you in a week! Smiley  Each hat is 2 points.

#2 - Mason Dixon Bib.  Can be custom with colors--just let me know what you want! Each bib is 1 point.

new! supplies!

i realized, too late, that i'm not a sewer, though in my brief time pretending, i managed to accumulate a great stash. i'll do 2 at a time until i'm cleaned out!


1/2 yard of Belle by Amy Butler for Rowan Fabrics.  2 points.

(I'm not sure what fabric sizes are in points, so I'm starting here and we'll see what happens)

I have more fabrics that I'll post as soon as I get these new homes!

Custom requests you don't see here? PM me and let's see what we can work out!

Coming Soon! dog treats, and felted soaps! Check back later this afternoon or PM me to be notified with shop updates!

Hello! I'm Selkie!
We are a non smoking house with 3 cats! If you are allergic, I will launder and immediately isolate the item.

1/2 point
handmade fleece baby booties - I got these at a craft fair about 10 years ago - my children have outgrown them. They have non skid on the sole.


1/2 point

Dark Red floral print cotton bag, lined with inside pocket, made from decorator sample book.


1/2 point
Vintage green and white crocheted cotton bag with bamboo handles, lining and gold button. My Aunt made this probably 60's - 70's.


1 point
Cotton crocheted backpack - done in sugar and cream peach, green and yellow vareigated yarn.


1 point

Pink round cotton blanket 4' - 5' in diameter - loose weave.


2 points
Moebius scarf - tan silk - more of a dressy scarf/neck decoration than a winter scarf.


2 points
Moebius scarf done in wool-ease - thick and heavy enough to wear as a winter scarf. I have 8 colors to choose from and I will custom make it - It will probably take an extra week to ship as I will need time to knit the scarf.


An example and description of a moebius scarf...
http://www.planetshoup.com/easy/knit/scarfmb.shtml


2 points
Handmade cotton costume dress - only worn once. This is probably about 5 years old - I think I was a size 18/20 when I made it. Nothing wrong with it, just didn't have another occasion to wear it.

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Shop is Open!

Paper Tart's

Shop of Oddments and Curiosities
All pieces made in a non-smoking environment and inspected by 2 curious cats


Next we have a completely useless book (1 point) - so I like to call it sculpture.
This is an accordion style book whose pages have been folded in various ways. The paper is butcher paper that has been painted and decorated on the front and back. Measures about 15" x 8" when closed.

details:




Cute little cigar style box (1 point) covered in olive green book cloth with a plexi glass top. This was my first attempt at making one of these so the top is a little small and the border around the plexi is a little sloppy. But maybe it can find a home where it isn't so harshly criticized.  Measures 5" x 3" and is about 2" deep.

with the top opened:




Piano Hinge Binding Book (1 point) This is the book on the left in the 2 pics below. Measures 7"x 7" and has 4 double sided pages (8 sides all together). The pages are duplex card stock blue on the outside and off-white on the inside.

Sold!Soft cover Pamphlet Book (.5 point) This is the book on the right in the 2 pics below. Very simple hand sewn pamphlet with about 16 pages is about 4" x 5". The cover is just a folded sheet of paste paper that the text block can be slipped out of. You must order another .5 point item from my shop at the time you place your claim - only whole point claims please.
