It looks like my partner didn't have a chance to post any pictures of the goodies I made her, so I figured I would at least show you all the stocking I made! I don't have the energy to do the rest of the photos haha. My partner wanted a dollhouse her whole life so I decided that I would make her stocking into the first dollhouse for her eventual collection! I sketched out an original dollhouse and then used butcher's paper to hand paint the lines and freehand painted the fills. I then embroidered all over, adding a bit of sparkle with seed beads and sequins in some places.

What a neat stocking! That must have taken a long time to do.  Cheesy too bad we didn't get to see your other goodies.

you should post pics if you have them.
It is disappointing when someone doesn't post pics or at least warn you that they can't...it's part of saying thank you  Undecided

I absolutely think post your pics Smiley
I think one of the problems with this swap has been a lot of us opened so long after we recieved, and the new year beginning just consumed me so I was hugely delayed taking photos for my lovely partner. X

Yeah it bums me out a bit too when that happens but I know sometimes it can't be helped either. It does seem like a bunch of packages are missing from the gallery but I might be wrong (I didnt count or anything ha).

I will see about getting some of my other pics ready for viewing, might take a while but will try Smiley

Thanks for the comments on the stocking I made! It did take quite a while but I had fun doing it.

Being late and letting your partner know you will be late and why is ok, but not posting or keeping in contact is not on. I always fret that they have not posted because they do not like what you have made, but the likelihood is they have just got caught up with life (which does not make it ok, but slightly less upsetting!)

Def post pics please!

Okay, here are the other crafted items that I made for my partner! I had enough time to get the photos sorted out Smiley

First, an adipose (Doctor Who) needle book using fabric I illustrated and silk-screened myself.

Next, a tea towel with a Doctor Who themed artwork that is close to a cool graphic I found online. I silk-screened it myself.

This one I was really excited about. I created an original illustrated artwork inspired by christmas and Doctor Who and printed it myself to make custom Christmas cards! It was my first time using my illustrations to do this and also printed my own stationary Cheesy

Lastly, a bunch of ornaments. The adipose was actually a set of three but I didn't want to be repetitive because they all looked (mostly) the same haha.


Well, that's all from me! I hope my partner enjoyed everything I sent Smiley
