I have sort of recovered from my terrible work schedule...I am going to a mod meet up this week so I will be out of touch for a bit...when I get back, I will post loads of pictures! Cheesy

Oooo how fun, always!  I hope you have an awesome time!!!  I'm super excited for my first meetup in Seattle at the beginning of August!  I'm so giddy with excitement!

In other news, my partner luckdragon has received the badges I sent her, so here they are!

I made her a craftster's scout merit badge for her amazing IYP organizing skills!  She's on her second round of an organizer for the swap!  Go go luckdragon!!  And I made her a Dr. Horrible patch so she can proudly show off her nerdy love!

I'll be posting this on the crochet board as well but this is definetly one of the biggest projects on my 50 projects list for 2012.  And its done!  4 months early!  GO ME! 

My best friend is getting married in October.  While we were in college I made him an afghan and his fiance loves it as much as he does.  So when they told me they'd set a date and were offically getting married I asked them want they wanted.  Another afghan in sunset colors (She got to pick colors).  So this is what I came up with.

Forgive the shadow in the middle of the afghan.  Smiley

Laid out flat.

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Ffrogg526, that is one amazing afghan!

Great badges jillybeans.

Everyone needs a tool roll. Your tools are always at hand, you know immediately if one is missing, they stay cleaner and it is so much fun to flick your wrist and just *fwick*!  Cheesy

I need the yo you hat pattern!  What a great way to use up bits of yarn!

Actually, so far I've just been winging it. When I make another one I'll try to come up with a pattern of some sorts.

Ffrogg526 - That afghan is gorgeous!

Jillybeans - Love the costume kit! Reminds me of when I was a kid - my mom somehow assembled a huge chest of play costumes and clothes and it was always so much fun.

Ffrogg - Congrats on finishing the afghan, it looks beautiful and will be a tremendously meaningful wedding present for your friends.

Ok time for me to photo dump. It's been a while and a swap package I sent out has been received so I don't have to worry about spoiling surprises any more  Cheesy

First I posted about a million hoops I made over the last few months at this link

Some of the highlights (there's tons more at the link and detail shots too)

And then swap stuff

Two shirts I screen printed - the second one is actually mold spores, not sperm and egg as almost everyone thinks it is.  Roll Eyes

Badges, a coiled mini pot thing (ignore the bracelet, it really didn't turn out that well  Undecided)

A vase....cover. I wet felted it (flat), and then machine sewed the texture in, then sewed it together into a tube. The inside isn't pretty but I love the texture of the outside. The idea is to put a plain vase in it so that you can enjoy the awesomeness of the felty texture.

And last is a bound art book I made using scraps of paper, prints, randomness  Grin

Ooh and last I almost forgot, my entry for last month's craftster challenge; a topography inspired art piece.

Ok all done for now  Grin
