Oops - I need to do some catch-up  Grin

RamonaQ - those embroideries and drawing are superb - love the Doubtful guests red boots  Cheesy
Rae-mazing - I love the colors you used for the Curious Sofa - peeping out being that wall shows off his doubtful personality  Wink
Spazgirl1981 - love the bat cup and saucer and those nesting dolls are too awesome
Wulf - what can I say ?!? The embroidery was spectacular enough (and would love to have that brooch in my collection!) but the creativity and uniqueness of the bunting - speechless  Cheesy

You guys are all too amazing  Grin

I have permission to post what I sent to Craftsunderground - I am hoping she is OK and just really busy.

I had the best time researching and crafting for this swap - I moved out of my comfort zone on a few things.

First is a Gorey bag - Crafts had pinned she liked the one I made in another swap - which is great because I knew it was acheivable  Cheesy It's a pattern I purchased from Sew-phistocats on Etsy and glad I have gotten good use out of it  Smiley I printed the text from Gashlycrumb Tinies for the side pockets and a picture that took my fancy of Edwardian people standing around at a party for the main zippered pockets!! I got most of the way through sewing and realised I hadn't put in one bit of lining - so a vast amount of unpicking and resewing later it turned out OK!



Next I stalked Crafts pinterest and came up with some ideas - there was a medal like brooch on which I put a Gorey cat image, a pair of earrings with a cat lying on books (hard to see  Undecided) and an Gorey-inspired altered key necklace.



The one I was worried about the most is this altered canvas - after much touching up here and there and debates with myself about sending it - I did anyway!! It measures about 5cm x 7cm on it's own stand.



And last - a vintage cuff with printed Gorey images and Gorey's pseudonyms



I hope it has arrived alright and Crafts likes it  Cheesy

I received this weekend from the talented Ms. Knickertwist! Here's what she sent:

A fabulous set of alphabet inchies depicting the Gashlycrumb Tinies meeting their untimely demise, and a proper couple on a keychain.


And this wonderful Edward Gorey theater, with all sorts of fine ladies and upright chaps milling about. The theater measures about 5" by 6" or so. Smiley


knickers was kind enough to also include some little extra goodies, including these fantastic cards of her own design! I'm tickled pink about these, but I'm so torn about whether I should frame them or actually send them on to friends. I'll probably have to keep my favorites.
 

Thanks so, so much, knickers! I love my Gorey gear. And thanks for organizing such a fun swap. I have loved just about everything posted in this gallery.  Smiley
