I claim amigurumicraze for some hedgehog artwork. List in a sec.

This is my 2nd claim of 3, 0 sent, 0 received.

I'm 27 and I live in California with my boyfriend of almost 8 years and our one million cats. Im a vegetarian and I love to cook and bake. I knit, crochet, embroider, decoupage, and do some other misc. crafts with pictures cut from magazines. Im super into amigurumis and embroidery right now, but still havent actually made an ami yet. I love greens, blues, and purples. I watch WAY too many movies and am a complete and total Tivo-aholic. I love nature and Im kind of a punky hippie. I dont have any allergies, I just do not like the smell of cigarette smoke. 


Crafts - in no particular order:

Curtains made from some super cute fabric in blues/greens - we live behind a plumbing place so our kitchen windows look out on their gross, old toilets - PM for measurements/colors/whatever else you need to know

Amigurumis! I love them!

Knit or crocheted scarf - no fun fur please and I love cables!

Knit or crocheted fingerless gloves

A calorimetry

A project bag like this: http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1336/634716981_d93a16b20f_o.jpg

Yoga socks

A snood

Super cute knitted hats - I have a lot wisted

Reusable shopping bags like this one, any color is fine: http://www.reusablebags.com/store/ecobags-earthtone-cotton-string-with-hemp-stuffsack-p-163.html

Pottery - any type/color - I love it!

An adult bib -   I'm kind of half kidding about this. I have big boobs and I spill something on them almost every time I eat. My bf is always saying I need a bib so I figured I'd post it on my wish list to see if one of you awesome sewers can create something amazing. I don't want it to look like a baby bib, I want it to be cute, something I can actually use.

Paintings for my sad, bare walls

Antique postcards and/or black and white photos (or sepia)

Anything having to do with Flight of the Conchords or Gilmore Girls

Embroidered anything

Homemade candles - I like coconut, vanilla, apple and cinnamon, jasmine, lilac, melon

Handknit socks

Homemade soaps, lotions, lip balms, whatever. I dont have a bath tub though, so no bath stuff like salts.

Picture frames - I want to be able to hang them, I like blues, greens, blacks, LOVE mosaics

Cute buttons/pins - I've got some wisted so you can check out what I like

Cat beds!! Soft, comfy, warm ones.

Afghan/granny squares in blues and greens - 4 x 4 would be fantastic

Embroidered quilt squares - I dont care about the size, I just want them all to be the same size so my (sort of) mother in law can work them into a quilt. Themes I would love are Harry Potter, traditional American tattoo flash (think Mitch OConnell, Sailor Jerry style), nature, Day of the Dead/sugar skull type stuff, Alaska. Obviously I dont want one HP, one tattoo, and so on. Id like them all to be the same theme.

Re-usable tea bags

An apron - like this, or any others she makes: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9508146

Any baked goodies you want to send me - I hate raisins!

Something for my boyfriend. He love, love, LOVES The Simpsons, especially characters other than the family like Comic Book Guy, Millhouse, Chief Wiggum. He rides a scooter so maybe something scooter related (specifically Honda Ruckus) or warm to wear when it's cold. He plays guitar and video games. He loves poker. Anything for him would be nice.

Headbands - I like chunky ones

Head scarves - silky, pretty ones

Anything having to do with my boyfriends: Clive Owen, James McAvoy, Leonardo DiCaprio

A notepad that can live in my purse, which means it needs to have a closure of some kind, and have a pretty sturdy cover thats preferably longer than the pages so they dont get bent. It should also be fairly small.

Anything inspired by my wists: http://www.wists.com/lilyvanilli

A crafted surprise - Ill love whatever you want to make me.


Craft Supplies:

Embroidery Hoops - All sizes - preferably in blues/greens/purples

Mason jars

Blank pillowcases/tea towels/canvas bags/Sublime Stitching banner for embroidery

Embroidery transfers - I *really* want some old iron-on transfers from decades past, new ones are good too, Sublime Stitching patterns would be great also - used is fine

Small ironing board - if you have one you're looking to get rid of

3 ring binders to organize my recipes, knitting patterns, embroidery patterns, floss

Debbie Bliss Cashmerino yarn (any color)

Any super soft yarn, preferably in greens, but any color is fine

Crochet hooks - all sizes

Large, blunt pins (like knitting seam pins)

Eyes for amigurumis - funky ones - I dont know what that means exactly, just not your everyday, run of the mill type eyes

A clickable row counter - http://www.purlsoho.com/purl/products/item/241


Kits:

Some kind of resin kit - jewelry or whatever

DIY canning kit - I really want to can some spaghetti sauce. I don't have a pressure cooker so just regular boiling method would be best.

Candle making kit

Polymer clay kit - I want to make some cute bottlecap magnets


Extras:

Candy from other countries - American candy is good too - I have a major sweet tooth!

Books - I love mysteries, short stories, and I will read anything you think is really good.

Blooming tea and a clear pot to brew it in

Old board games you dont want anymore - PM for specific games, I do have some

Reflexology socks/gloves

I claim Lilyvanilli for some Auigurumis!!!

5th claim of 3, 3 sent, 3 received.

Im going to claim NoFury for ~~Cloth Napkins: Not HUGE ones tho!

This is my second claim of three.  None sent and none recieved (however my first claim item is done I just need to mail it!!)

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 35 and im a stay at home mom to three boys in NE OH.  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allerigc to nickel.
 
Here are my wishes
First off any surprise off my wist list is great!!

Crafted Items~~[/size]

KNITTED AND CROCHETED
**Beaded or crocheted/knitted Miser Bag example like this http://www.onceuponapattern.com/59.html or this one http://www.somewhereintime.tv/antiques/miser.html (im not asking for exact replicas of these. However it is ok if they are lol !!).

Crocheted Victorian Reticule like this one http://www.knitheaven.com/vintagepatterns/23_LADYS_RETICULE_CROCHET.htm

I love this shawl and am willing to wait longer if anyone will make it for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CivilWarShawlKAL/  Im not picky about color.  Would be just happy to even have one.

A Nubia (Civil War Knitted Scarf). Red or Heather Gray would be lovely.  Im not sure if the link will take you directly there.  http://www.raggedsoldier.com/  If it doesnt Click on Needlework Necessities and Novelties and go to knitting patterns.


SEWN[/size]

**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decrotive and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a predrafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)

Primitive Rageddy Ann doll (An example is in my wists)

Handwarmers like the ones offered at Hot Topic. Victorian Goth ones would be perfect.

Crazy Quilted Purse
Victorian capelet.  At least waist length please email for length.
Regency or Victorian era Reticule
Petticoat either knee or ankle length !!  (Im 5'5 email for length)

 
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  I have always wanted to try it!!  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies as I would love to learn how to make my own. Premade bars are appreciated as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.     Gonna take a break this round lol
 
Ive always been curious about those soap bombs.  My kids would probally love them !!  Also jars of bath salts would be fantasic as well.
 
BEADED
A beaded Victorian Choker would be lovely.

Hand crafted candles are great too.  Prefer either fruit and or spice scented ones or lavender (only floral scented one I like)
 
 
~~Supplies~~

A whimsey (spelling??) jar of buttons and ribbons and such would be really fun!!
 
Im always needing thread for sewing and this always stays on my list. I go through alot of black and white but love new colors too!!  The more the merrier and gently used is welcomed too !!

2 yard lengths of eyelet trims and any color is welcome !! 

Patterned Ribbons is also welcomed too (again another one of my standbys lol)!!

Unwanted Issues of Threads ( I have all of 2003 2006-2008 Though I dont have the brand new issue yet 136) and Burda World of Fashion Magazine !! (used is fine) Knipmode, Ottobre, Patrones, La Mode

Gothic Lolita Bible Magazine (used is just fine) (these have patterns in them)

Purse handles and supplies.  Silver victorian clasps would be great too.

Scrapbooking items  (trims, paper, stickers anything!!).  Im also looking for some things like brads, ribbons, fancy paper, sissors. 

Beading supplies like wire 18 gauge or higher, beads, spacers.   
Im also needing jewlery making supplies too.
 
Vintage Sewing Patterns!!  36 Bust is perfect. 
Im especially trying to find a Jumper from 1948(?) Simplicity 2705

EXTRAS
Decorated Chopsticks
Candy from outside the US, Including but not limited to, (NZ~~Minties, Pineapple Lumps and Wittakers) Kit Kats!!
Anything from Victorian Trading Company

I claim nofury for a 'saving environment surprise package'

This is my second claim of 3, 1 sent, 0 recd

I'm in Massachusetts US, I do mostly knit, but I also crochet, spin, and used to cross-stitch, embroider and a little bit of tatting. I like the cooler colors (blues, purples, greens) but a little oomph of the red/orange/yellows doesn't hurt either. Nothing holiday themed please - I like being able to use my things all the time, not just a few weeks a year  Grin

My list, in no particular order -

Crafts
 
a 'dishwasher fairy' - in our house, the 'dishwasher fairy' empties the dishwasher when I don't see or ask anyone to do it. I doubt it's very big, maybe 5-6" (27-30cm) and doesn't come around too often Smiley

a dozen tiny flower pins ('tiny' being 1" (2.5cm) or smaller) - any color, method, or flower, but please handcrafted. I want to display a flower for each weightloss milestone - a dozen and I'm at my goal weight. (You don't have to claim for a dozen, I'll leave it on the list until I get a dozen. ) Thanks Meg!

neckwarmer/cowl/shortscarf to wear with a pine green coat. It's cold here!  Cheesy
earwarmer/headband to use instead of a hat (I don't look good with the squashed hat-hair look  Wink )

small (creditcard size) wristlet Thanks 1boy1girl1kitty2!

a small zippered pouch/tote

decorated crochet hook or teeny bead-topped knitting needles or a pretty tatting shuttle
(I have the 'plain' knitting needles I can send if there's a beader who can figure out how to attach the beads securely)

A shopping bag that folds into its own pouch

'flat' shoulder purse

book purse

small/med tote bag

decorated ID badge reel like this (doesn't have to be clay-decorated, it was just the 1st pic I found)

cotton soap sack with handmade soaps

double-stitch markers or any stitch markers for small needles (US size 3, 3.25mm or smaller)

wallet purse like this style
crocheted kippah in this design but in purples and/or blues.

handdecorated note paper/stationery

Supplies

a crochet-a-tawashi-kit (or knit, either one is fine - crochet hook/knitting needle optional - I have those  Cheesy)

assortment of yarn for tawashi (acrylic worsted weight, any color, about 50-75yds each)

this wallet purse sewing pattern

Casein Knitting needles

Flex knitting needles (they look like circulars that have been cut in half)

New Pathways for Sockknitters book by Cat Bordhi
Cool Socks, Warm Feet by Lucy Neatby
Andean Folk Knits by Marcia Lewandowski
(pre-owned books in good condition are just fine with me)

something from, or based on, my etsy favorites

Extras
Chocolate, plain or with nuts (unless you want to share with the hubby - he likes the mint & fruit-filled chocolates)
tea, hot chocolate mixes
Gone With The Wind (paperback book) by Margaret Mitchell

I claim 1boy1girl1kitty2 for any quilting books or mags

I'm in Fairfax, Va (USA).  This is my 4th claim. 2 sent, 1 received. 

About me: I am a 30-year-old stay at home mom who loves to sew, but seems to have very little time to do so of late. I'm not very girly and I'm not a big fan of trinkets.  Basically, I'm very practical and like useful things.  Of course, I consider things to hang on the walls useful Wink.


Crafts

Things for my kids:

I am expecting a little girl late June and would love some crafted goodies for her.  Here are some suggestions:

  -Room Accessories (artwork? pillows? etc.) in lavender (I'm trying to convert my green/blue/yellow nursery into a girl's room by adding lavender accents)

  -I need a new changing pad to keep in my diaper bag.  Something waterproof, please (maybe oilcloth??).

My 2.5-year-old son doesn't want to be left out of the crafty goodness either! 

  -My sister-in-law is making him a toy kitchen, but he doesn't have any play food.  I would LOVE some crafted food for him.  Nothing with choke-able parts, so probably made of fabric would be good.

  -Dress up clothes.  I'm trying to put together a collection of dress-up clothes for him, but I'm stumped for what to include in it.  So far, all he has is some capes and a fireman hat.  I would appreciate some assistance -whatever you can dream up.


Things For Me:

-Homemade notecards.  I love sending homemade notecards and I've seen some really beautiful ones out there.  You can have total creative freedom with this one, just stay away from anything religious or political Wink.

-Cloth napkins, for everyday use, in shades of blue, purple, or yellow

-A tote bag to bring to the farmer's market this spring/summer. Something sturdy enough to handle all my veggies!

-Anything from my wists.

-Surprise me with what you do best.  Just, you know, try to make it something I can make use of Wink.


Supplies

-Quilting fabric.  I'm a quilter and my stash is woefully in need of some yellows, purples and neutrals.  I'll accept any and all sized pieces (including scraps), but I would really prefer good quality fabric.

-Sewing patterns for children's' clothing.  I especially would like a pattern for baby bloomers (you know, to wear under dresses).

-Bias Tape Maker


Extras

-Any empty spice jars/containers (plastic only, please!) for my son's play kitchen.  He currently only has bay leaves and everything he "cooks" contains massive quantities of them!

-3" fabric squares for a scrap quilt I'm working on.  Don't send a ton - just a few.  And all different fabrics please.  I want a real variety Wink.
