Well here are photos of the crafts that I sent to my disappearing partner 2711.  Unfortunately I didn't take any piccies of the extras I sent it seems, and nor can I remember what I sent!  But here are piccies of the crafts:

Firstly let me introduce Moss the stuffie!



and his strange friend Richmond the stuffie, complete with milky contact lens and shirt with frilly cuffs and front!! Grin



As soon as I finished making them the cheeky mo-fo's set to "improving" the performance of my laptop!



Aaaand Becky said that she really needed a laptop case/sleeve, so I was keen to oblige and so I stencilled one





Containing laptop, and check out the little bit of the funky lining that you can see.  I just added ribbons as the closure, which are nice and long so they can be tied.



I'm kinda sad to be flaked on twice in such a short period of time, but there we go, these things happen!!

Awww, thanks  Smiley

I love the stuffies! I just wisted Moss.  Perhaps you weren't flaked on, maybe your partner passed out from seeing the awesome package and just hasn't recovered yet.  Cheesy

T he he, mayhap you're right!!! Grin 

Thanx guys, I did love those stuffies, they were great fun to make too.  Mr Loops said Moss' hair should have been bigger but it was a bit too late at the point he mentioned it, I love his geeky checked shirt though, and Richmonds milky lens Smiley  I may well have to make a Moss for me at some point, he is very handy to have round the house for computer emergencies when Mr Loops isn't around!

Well if you like I'll make sure and PM if I were to organise a 2nd round Wink  There were quite a few people that were interested in it originally but I think it was a bad time for a lot of peeps unfortunately, and some peeps were worried about postage prices if they couldn't get a partner in their own country so they didn't signup, but hopefully we'll get more takers next round!

Oh and thaaaaanks Grin

T he he, thanx Twisty Grin  I just looooved Mosses shirt and tie, the rest of he and Richmond were made from felt, but I had to get him a proper checked fabric for his shirt!

I kinda didn't put a close up of the Moss stencil cos it was a little messier up close (cos I totally forgot that you could iron freezer paper onto the fabric to stop the paint from bleeding!) but I was still very happy with it as I had to do like 4 layers of colours on there and it was only my 2nd stencil Smiley  If nothing else it was good practise cos I need to make a laptop bag for myself!

I got my package from Spirals420!  I had asked her to make some things for my husband's desk since he is an IT guy and likes the show too.

First, look at how it was packaged!  The box is great.


She made a set of pens (so they won't get stolen anymore) and a "Profanity Buzzer" pen holder.  The buzzer is from the Calamity Jen episode where she curses at the Asian business man.

This is awesome, a keyboard mirror!  I told her I might steal it for my own office.


Finally, in honor of Roy's desk, toys to play with!


Thank you so much, Spirals420.  Everything is wonderful, I can't wait until my husband sees his goodies!  I know I love them.
