Here are some items I crafted for the Lord of the Rings swap.

Here's a Legolas tote I made. This is my first attempt at embroidery in many years. It was only after I made it, then looked at the embroidery on this board, that I realized my mistakes. I hope to do better next time.



Here are a set of tea towels I made. My partner said she liked to bake so I thought some kitchen items would be handy. The quotes are from the movies. Sam's "taters" conversation with Gollum and Pippin's list of hobbit meals.



And a trivet. Frodo does live you know.  Grin



And a simple sunflower keychain with a quote on the back.




 
Finally, there is this quote my partner liked that I designed with an alphabet I got from a book.

I'm carrying around my craft magazines in the tote you made me, and I wore my necklace today when I took my mother out for Mother's Day. So I was pretty lucky too.  Grin

Aw, thanks so much! *blushes* You're no slouch yourself. I was so happy to get you as a partner because I'd seen your work before. I hope everyone checks out the swap gallery to see all the pretties. I like seeing the different crafts people make. The cross stitiching is pretty much my only talent.

And I had even more ideas! I'm the biggest LOTR fan I know. I drive people crazy with it sometimes.

Thanks for the comments everyone! The tea towels were a pretty simple idea but I loved how they turned out.

Oh, yes. You need to have your LOTR books and movies! Part of the fun of this swap was watching the movies while crafting to set the mood.  Smiley

I couldn't agree more.  Grin
