Love the woodburned Shakespeare box, wisted the Vines scarf, and drooled over the altered book! This is such a great swap so far - and my amazing partner is totally going to up the ante!!

OMG, astormorray!!!  Shocked This is probably the best swap ever. I can't even express how much I LOOOOOVE everything you made!!! The Midsummer Night's Dream tote - a true work of art and will begin to be put into use tomorrow. Is that the one you were worried about?  Grin Cause really - I can't even tell you how clever I think it is - the details are perfection. I love how each of the trees are different! And little Beatrice is adorable! I never would have thought to make a doll. I can't wait to show her to my bff- she's going to be so jealous! Hehe.  Cheesy Now, I know you aren't a big R&J fan, but you'd never know it with all the detail you put into that cuff. I can't wait until I have a day that I don't work so I can wear it! The extra goodies were perfect too - i looooove maps AND handmade papers and the thoughtfulness of giving me the extra fairy wings was so sweet!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

However, I must cringe at the West Side Story/R+J book!  That's the same one we had to read in 9th grade!  Sad
Okay,here's a better comparison for you-Gilligan's Island and the tempest-"the weather started getting rough,the tiny ship was tossed..."Any better?
Anybody here remember when they really did a musical version of Shakespeare on Gilligan? I can still sing that!

I guess I'd better post the pictures.   Grin  Yeah, the bag had me worried (because it's a recycled wool sweater it has something of an odd flare at the bottom) but so did the arms/neck of the doll.  It's not easy to knit in three directions at once!


Midsummer Night's Dream tote bag.  Made from a sweater, embroidered trees, then felted, then some leaves added, and figures, and a moon.  And the flower!  It was not quite done when the picture was taking, and the shiny black lacing extended around the whole base when finished.


front of bag, Puck with flower.


bag lining.  Isn't this fabric wonderful?  I saw it and knew it had to be!

Emma Thompson Beatrice doll (Much Ado About Nothing)  Knit with removable costume.


And all her clothes come off in case lariarocket has any desire to make clothes for other Emma Thompson roles.  Wink


Finally, a Romeo and Juliet wrist cuff

It's just the first five scenes or so, well, the 2nd-5th, I believe.  I'm most proud of the nurse and Juliet's wedding dress.
