Those mittens are amazing!!!!  I love everything in the gallery!

Eclectic Dreamer can't find her camera, so she asked me to post pictures of what I sent -

Basket - I kept it pretty simple, but then added a fabric flower





I made her a journal for the other item.  I recently took a coptic book binding class and have been trying to make sure all I learned sticks. Smiley It actually isn't too hard once you learn the stitch.  I collaged the covers with some ephemera I had and included a couple cat silhouettes.  Cheesy

zkatom: thanks for posting the pics!!

The pages inside are cool too. The outer page of each paper section is a decorative paper.
And now I've decided I have to learn how to do this type bookbinding, too, so I can create my own day planner for 2013 (I'm soooooo picky in what I want, nothing on the market is quite right).

The basket needs ironed a little bit to perk it up from its trip, but I'm so excited about it! It's perfect for my bedroom & will go on my dresser to hold the miscellaneous jewelry that I don't know where to put.

I LOVE that journal!
I'm going to have to add that to the evergrowing list of
"I've gotta try that someday!"

Thanks for the love on the fingerless gloves everyone!
That is the item I will be making myself a copy of most definately.

The Mastermind Hoop was from the comments from susanab and wendiek earlier (way earlier) in the thread. I too loved the game as a kid, and ... I couldn't help myself!

OMGoodness that Hello Kitty is just too much! I love it!
And another roller derby gal to boot. Who do you play for?

I play for Tucson Roller Derby.  I'm guessing that you play also?
Yep! I play for Rose City Rollers. I transferred in from Bay Area Derby girls back in October.

The gloves fit perfectly and are so great! I agree with Leslie that everyone should have a pair. Yes, silentblair make yourself a pair too!
As for the mastermind hoopla, it is so cool! You remembered us talking about mastermind, how awesome is that!!!

zkatom: I love the basket you made. The flower the finishing touch! (as we say: the whipped cream on the pie)
That journal is great!! So awesome to receive such great handwork! Great job!
Eclectic Dreamer what a great package to receive!!!

Zkatom, I love the package you made for Eclectic Dreamer!  The fabric on the basket is beautiful, and really suits her well; the fabric flower is a really cool touch.  And that journal----!!!!  Whoa, that is really something extra special, can I come to your house and you show me how to do that??  Awesome package!

Thanks for all the compliments on the journal everyone!  I'm so glad you guys like it.  They are really fun to make - kind of addicting.....  Smiley  You are welcome to come over Leslie, though the trip might be a bit long.  Tongue 

There are some really great tutorials online - http://www.tortagialla.com/2010/08/16/chain-or-coptic-stitch-bookbinding-tutorial/  I don't use a hole punch to punch through the cover; the awl works fine.  You don't need to use a curved needle.  Some people find it confusing while it really helps others.  It is definitely just personal preference.  I also finish off a bit differently, but I don't think it matters at all.

zkatom, love the basket and the flower is gorgeous!  The journal is amazing.  I bought supplies to learn bookbinding a few years ago and never went any further.  I think I may have to find the stuff and give it a try. Smiley
