I just learnt how to shape wood to make my toy swords using a bench grinder.......15 mins and the sword was done, no need to sand......saweet

That sounds like a blast!

I received my fake Reading Swap stuff, and I am very, very happy with what craftADDchick made for me!

Here's a group shot:



There is a tea wallet, an etched mug (I couldn't get a decent photo, but it says, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough, or a book long enough, to suit me. -CS Lewis") and a book clock (made out of a copy of The Time Machine, by HG Wells).

Here's a shot of the tea wallet with a peek at the inside (I just love the pussywillow fabric!):



She also made me two more tea wallets for 2 of my friends to take to their book club meetings (they drink decaf tea, and nobody ever seems to have it).

Here's a not-so-great photo of the clock. The cover of the book is perfect for this!



And, I forgot to take a photo of the books:
Heat Wave by Richard Castle (because I love that show!)
Impact by Douglas Preston (her brother read it over vacation and couldn't put it down!)
The Angel of Darkness by Caleb Carr (which is awesome, because it's the sequel to The Alienist, which I loved!)

Thanks so much craftADDchick. It was worth the wait!

I was able to post this package for the Crafty Detective Swap yesterday. So I was only a day late. (It really was mailed out to some friends who will be getting a surprise package soon.)



The pink things are needle tatted pendant necklaces. (The chain is missing because I misplaced it. However, chain was added right before I shipped it.)

I'm always in awe of people who can make poppets. So awesome!

Oh. My. Gosh. craftADDchick. I love, love that tea wallet. I've loved pussywillows since my teacher handed them out in kindergarten. I couldn't stop feeling how soft they were! (Do you happen to have any of that fabric left?/Where can I find it?)

meleriffic, love the poppet, great work!

CraftADDchick - i adore the book clock, may have to wist that

I finished the one tiny WoW thing and my cuff bracelet, just need to post the pics.  I've got the crafted things for my jar of whimsies  done and a massive amount of stuff for the jar. I scored a lot of great whimsy when I helped with my moms yard sale. Now I need to decorate the silly jar!  The only problem is that when I was brainstorming for the jar, it led me down another project path that is not a jar, and requires a new skill and new materials. So now I want to quick decorate the whimsy jar so I can learn all about wiring electronics so I can light up some test tubes and make them flash to music without electrocuting myself.  (I'm nothing if not ambitious Roll Eyes )

CraftADDchick I love that fabric. makes me want to visit the USA you have the most awesome fabrics over there.

meleriffic  I to would love a close up of the tatted items, I am jealous that you know how to do it. Cheesy

kstaron yes NOT electrocuting yourself is always a good thing, I learnt how to do basic wiring around my house but pulling out the old stuffed fitting/plug etc and then undoing 1 wire at a time to rewire the new item. You'd be surprised how easy it is, I can only do the basics of course I get the electrician to do the hard stuff. I don't think fried human flesh smells very nice. lol

kstaron, be careful! Electrocution in the name of crafting is a no-no!

And, I got the fabric at a Jo-Ann Fabrics while I was on vacation in FL. I'm hoping I can get more, too! I was thinking of making a valance for the bathroom with it. I think it'll match the walls perfectly! Unfortunately, my mom just got back from FL, so I can't send her to get more for me Sad 

But...

The selvage has this printed on it: CP33512 Blossomwood Pussywillows Tim Coffey Legacy Studio. Maybe that can help you find it!

And, the book clock came out better than I expected! I didn't realize the book cover would look like that (there was no image when I ordered it on Amazon) and it wasn't as thick as I planned on. But, it turned out that the clock works "box" fit flush with the back of the book. I drilled a hole in the book to fit the stem of the clock works into and then I drilled 4 smaller holes to mark 3, 6, 9 and 12. I twisted in some small black animal safety eyes and they also help to keep the book closed, so I didn't have to use any glue! And, now that the clock works don't stick out the back, I could hang the clock on the wall, if I wanted.

Here's a click-able thumbnail of the tatting.



I just recently taught myself how to needle tat and am definitely still in the learning stages. The two flowers on the left are actually what I learned on. They're the pattern that totusmel of Needle Tatting and other Nonsense teaches you how to tat on.  If you go to her blog she has a list of free tatting patterns on the right and the first on Learn To Tat is the flower.  The large pendant was a pattern from a girl here on craftster,pieknits, blog.

That book clock is amazing!  I'm wisting it in case I ever do end up with a place that can have a library.

Great work on the tatting.  I tried it eons ago and it was too much for me.
