I am sooooo late.  I'm also sooooo sorry...life has gotten chaotic: multiple illnesses in my house, injuries of elderly family members, busy season at work, hr issues at work, and so on.  The so on including my DH putting the camera and fire-wire in the closet where he stashed my Christmas presents, making it off limits!!

I'd like to say Thank You!!! to Eiseldora for spoiling me silly.  The pictures don't do everything justice, but here we go.

Everything:


Four stenciled shirts - One white one is Terry Pratchett's Discworld, the Great A'tuin.  Grey one is a Firefly Class space ship flashing on (with glitter!) the blue is Chinese? (Eisedora, want to pitch in with a translation?) And the other white is one Angy Bird!  She also threw in two shirts she found but didn't use. Pretty pink and a purple sweater.
She knit a skinny scarf, earwarmer/headband and wristwarmers.  I'll make use of these when it's not 65 degrees here in Alabama!!! 
And under it all....an awesome plaid skirt.



Not the best picture, but DH had disappeared and I wanted to get the picture taken.  It's warm, and long, and COMFY!!!

Thanks again, Eisadora!!  (and sorry I'm sooo late posting all the goodness. Undecided)

YAY a gallery. DC tracking says AuntiKar should receive today. I am not so pleased with the large, but hope she likes all the smalls. If she gets an action shot, it will show the intention. Severe anxiety.

Yes, and goodies is such an understatement. I took some action shots, need to resize and clean them up and so sad I feel bad. Aunti Kar I'm going to send you another package. No one, and I mean NO ONE can match your sewing skills. I wore the entire group to work last night and got the nicest compliments. The colors rocked, so I have to make sure the action shots do it justice. I would like to see action shots of the smalls if you can, because I liked them, but my pics weren't good enough to post.

I'm just super glad you loved everything, although I did show off your large item around the office!  I am trying to get some good shots of your crafty wonders at work, but the weather, the camera....and the computer are giving me grey hairs!  I will try to get them up in the next couple days!

OK, you may now pin. Cheesy

The entire outfit, a shrug type cover with the most beautiful skirt EVER. With matching flowers on the shrug from the skirt fabric.


This necklace is so beautiful and the colors of all are loved.


Even the hair bows.


Excuse the work badge. I wore it that same day.

AuntiKar, and still need to make you another, as I'm lately sewing challenged.  Angry

 Nothing could have topped this.

Love the skirt!  I must know if you used a pattern for the top...it is one that I think I would love to make...it is very flattering and the color is fabulous!

It really looks nice on you, lovesclutter!  The color is perfect for your skin and hair!

AIMR I found this tutorial quite a while ago. Only difference is my top has long sleeves. I can't locate it right now, but just cut up the middle front of a t shirt, fold over and hem wide to be able to insert ribbon to tie up as tightly or loose as you desire.

Organizer's Note

Hi all!  I think I've updated everyone's send/receive info.  Please PM me if I am missing anything.  I will be going out of town until 12/31 & I'm not sure if I'll have access to internet so I'll take care of everything when I get back.

ok seriously blanked out or haven't been getting my craftster updates or something cuz i totally didn't even realize the gallery was up. i swear christmas fryed my brain this year.

loving the firefly shirts.

that blue shrug and skirt are so pretty, i may have to try my hand at one of those shrugs, totally looks like something my mom would love.

frogprincess- PM me if you want some tips on doing painted shirts. i do a lot of them for friends and whenever my nieces stay over their favorite thing to do is make shirts, so if an 8 yr old can do it then so can you.

Ok, so the stars aligned finally and I have pics!!  They aren't perfect, but I have them....and I'm excited to share!


My smalls....some funky neckwear whick is super cute and fun, fingerless gloves(one has gone MIA at the moment), and a super cute dotee doll which my niece just about absconded with over Christmas. 


My large....a flowy tunic style top with super sparkly trim and removable yarn rosettes!

I love the way the top fits, and the smalls are fabulous!  I have had a couple girls at work try to take my scarf and my fingerless gloves....I'm super glad I joined!  Thank you thank you lovesclutter, and I am sorry it took so long to get pics up!

Well, I am glad you took so much better pics than I did. My puter should have dome today. I loved that doll, and those smalls. Hope you find the glove. Glad you posted and glad you liked them.

The scarf was the one I sharpie dyed the cotton thread and then crocheted. I will try to get more vivid colors next time.

So glad you like everything. The hat looks super cute on you too. I don't think I put it in the letter, but if you didn't figure it out, the little loops on the side of the hat are for bobby pins or if you want to use elastic to keep it on you could string it through there too. and it take some practice, but if you put in the bobby pins so they're pointing under the hat and shove them in all the way after its secured, then you don't even see the loops on the outside.

I am so glad everything made it okay and that you like it. I am always nervous when sending that I haven't done enough.

I haven't sewn something for an adult in a long while. I spend most of my time at my machine making little girl dresses. So it was nice to make something that didn't have little tiny sleeves or a bunch of elastic.  Cheesy

I hope you get a chance to use the apron soon!
