That is just lovely! I'd really enjoy seeing more pics if you've got any bmd1011. That's some impressive embroidery there.

sadly I forgot to take pics before I shipped it out, I realized that after I dropped the box off at the post office  Cry

BrooklynMermaid- if you want you can text me the phone pics, and I can upload them for a clearer look  Grin

I'm so glad you like everything!  The wooden butterfly is also supposed to have a magnet piece on the back, it fell off on me and i put another on, but if it fell off again I'm sorry about that.  Also the box is entirely hand painted and it was such a hassle to get that grating done, but it was worth it cause you like it! 


Wish on everything.

Sometimes the questions are sophisticated and the answers are simple.

Thanks!  I got the pattern for the earrings from an old book I had with lots of fringe earring patterns.  I do have the bead and button issue you are talking about though!
wow, you made a fringe bag?  That must have taken lots of patience!

Yeah, it was a Christmas present for my best friend, right before she moved out of state. I'm thinking it took me about 15 hours of work.  I was making beaded flowers at the time, too, and  the bag was more interesting to do than the flowers (it was the dragon bag from www.beadedpatterns.com ).  I'm usually better at following other people's directions than making my own patterns.  Smiley  And her modified square stitch is genius! 


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

I received from muria and here are the  wonderfull goodies:

a  beaded bracelet by her own pattern (look at all the different shapes!)that fits perfectly and cute, matching earrings
(Sorry for the flash)

an insulated tote with super-colouful, super-beautiful fabric (she also sent me the remains!) This is great for Festivals.

and my favourite: a lovely painted T-Shirt, Death's Head Hawkmoth on the back

and its caterpillar on the front

also some cute metal pendants and a handdrawn card

Thanks a bunch muria for all the wonderfull stuff and for swapping with me!!!

Thanks, darkangelwingz!  And thanks for organizing a great swap!

I'm glad you like everything, Glamis!  It was fun crafting for you! I was seriously considering making a zombie butterfly something or other, but I kept veering towards the cartoony (specifically Plants vs. Zombies from www.popcap.com cartoony), and I couldn't get the bloodshot eyes to look right, so it's an abandoned concept. For now, anyway.  Wink

Sorry it had taken me so long to post to the gallery.  I was bummed when it looked like my partner was going to flake.  But thanks to zigg13pra (my swap angel) this swap turned out pretty awesome!  My dh is on the other computer with the photos.  So I will post again tomorrow with the photos of some of the things that I sent and the package I have received!
