Glad you like it sweetlysedated!  When I saw you like cherries I knew immediately what I wanted to make.    Enjoy!!

I received my OTT from sweetlysedated today!  What a great "first swap" item!  I love it.

Behold my beautifully crafted box with clay leaves on it and some leavy stitch markers to put in it!  (I wish I wasn't so "knitting challenged"!). 


The inside of the box.  Cute paper!

Thanks so much, I love it!!


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: bruisedpeach22 on October 04, 2007 08:50:23 PM
There's pics up already?!?!?! How did i miss all this? Both items are super cute!


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: silk81 on October 04, 2007 11:39:55 PM
This pouch is really cute! I love cherries and I think both fabrics are great!

The box and the stitch markers remind me of fall. I think they are perfect for knitting warm winter sweaters ;)

Cute box! (I think I have some of that paper, too!)

I am so glad you like it gingerquilts!!
As soon as I saw you like nature and trees and leaves I knew a fall theme was in order :D
Did a leaf fall off of one of the stitch markers :(

And sorry LuxieLou I know ONE tiny thing, But I wanted to make the box to put the tiny thing in pretty :(
Guess I messed up my first swap, Oh well.....

I think all of the postal strikes going on in England are the one thing to make me happy that I'm living in America and not over there.  ::) Faster swapping over here!

Hold onto your hats, girlies! Check out my tiny vintage cat by Rackycoo.
He's made out of a wooden bead and a wee flower pot.



Racky never ceases to amaze  me.


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: FishStikks on October 06, 2007 08:38:48 AM
N I C E!
I've been lurking in this thread watching all the pretties go by and lusting mightily...this is definitely lust worthy. Nice job Racky!
How big is that, it's so hard to tell without something to judge it next to.


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: silk81 on October 06, 2007 08:46:16 AM
That's  amazing! how tall is it?


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: allyinthevalley on October 06, 2007 08:49:30 AM
How cute! It looks so big in the picture. Can't believe she was able to put so much detail in to something so tiny!


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: rackycoo on October 06, 2007 08:52:41 AM
The cat is about 3 1/2 inches tall. The hat makes him almost 5", but it's removable, so I thought it would be ok to add it in.  :D


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: amaryllisroze on October 06, 2007 08:54:21 AM
He fits snugly in the palm of my hand. The husband has the camera set at some kind of crazy resolution that take huge pictures. Before I resized it, the picture was like 2500 by 1700 or something like that. I had to take it down to 600 to post it.


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: sweetlysedated on October 06, 2007 04:30:11 PM
Awesome cat rackycoo!!
Love it sooo much :D


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!

Oh wow, I love that cat! It's so detailed!

Everyone's tiny things look so cute! I especially love that cat.  :o

rackycoo that hat is awesome!

I updated the front page...let me know if I'm missing anything please ladies! thanks :)

If you are prone to swap anxiety, you might want to skip over this next post, because amaryllisroze has outdone herself! We agreed to make each other Halloween themed OTTs. Look at this incredible little work of art! It's a 4" by 4" spiral bound book. I absolutely love it! My daughter took one look at it and said, "Oh, that's so you!" And she's right. It's perfect.

Here's the cover:


And here are the inside pages, spelling out "Halloween". I'm sure you would have picked up on that yourself, but I had to say it anyway.  :D
I was only going to post my favorites, but they're all my favorites, so you got lucky here.



 ^ Sorry about the glare here. I'm sure you clown-o-phobics don't mind, though.  :D









I'm sorry I had to make you jealous! amaryllisroze deserves a round of applause, don't you think? Thanks a ton, aroze. It's simply amazing! You know I love it!!


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: Samsara on October 09, 2007 01:43:48 PM
*Gasp* that's soo amazing! I love all the pages!  ;D


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: amaryllisroze on October 09, 2007 01:45:46 PM
Ugg! The silver bats got all blurry in the back cover! I didn't see that before I shipped it or I would have fixed it.

I'm glad you like it anyway.

Oh, please. It's perfect. Stop talking mean about my book!  :D

Post by: gingerquilts on October 09, 2007 02:02:52 PM
Wow!   :o

That is so amazing aroze!  I love the vintagey images you used and I think the silvery bats are perfect!  The fibers along the binding are great.  A+++++! 


(No wonder it took racky so long to post the pics!)

I was so excited yesterday when the postman delivered my package, and even more excited when I opened it and found the most adorable little amigurumi ladybug!



I love it! Thank you so much Hoxierice!

Hi Luxielou, have you heard anything re: job yet?

Some excellent things on here - love the little halloween book  and the cat is just phenomonal!


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: LuxieLou on October 12, 2007 09:00:40 AM
Thanks for asking Feline...they haven't decided yet but they like me..I'm waiting to see if they decide anything today & I have an interview at another place Monday. This is so stressful!  :-\ Hopefully I get 1 of the 2! I need to get rid of my long commute ASAP!


I can't wait to see more OTT's! How's everyone coming? sendouts are next week, can I get an update please?


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: ashestoashes on October 13, 2007 08:56:57 AM
I got my OTT from Luxielou yesterday!

She made me an awesome duct tape wallet, inspired by my wist. The koi came out great, and it's just the right size for money and ID which will be great for going to concerts or wherever. I can't imagine cutting all those little duct tape pieces out :)



Thanks again Luxielou! I love it :)

Did you hear anything luxielou?

Great Dodo, is he knitted or crocheted?


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!

It's crocheted and with way more skill than i could have done.

And awesome wallet LuxieLou love the koi :D
Great OTT's everyone!


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: allyinthevalley on October 14, 2007 12:40:14 PM
My partner received a while ago, and since she hasn't posted yet I thought I'd go ahead and do that for her. She requested stitch-markers and said she liked fruit, so.......

Fruity stitch markers (or charms... whichever)! (It's funny, because this is the 3rd swap in a row that I've made stitch markers for. But my partners keep requesting them, so what am I supposed to do?!)
We also decided to do some personal tiny swaps on the side, so I made her a melted bead dish and an ATC-sized patch. But since this was strictly a "one item" swap, I won't post the others.


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: rackycoo on October 14, 2007 12:43:33 PM
You could post them in the October "Private Swap" gallery.  :)

Thanks for the compliments on the wallet! let me tell u that was way harder than I anticipated but it was worth it. I'm glad u like it ashestoashes!

Feline - they contacted my references on Friday! I hope I hear something tomorrow!  ???


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: LuxieLou on October 14, 2007 05:05:36 PM
If you have received and have not sent me a PM please do. I have received a couple that partners have received days ago but the front page isn't updated. I can't keep track if it is only posted in the thread. Please PM me! the front page is up to date with all the info I have received.

Prepare to be very jealous  ;D

I got my beautiful OTT from Bobaily today. A pair of "infinity earrings". They are pink and sparkly just the way i like things.

The photo's dont do them justice (my fault) and I am wearing them now!

Thanks Hayley, great work for your first ever swap!

Post by: amaryllisroze on October 16, 2007 10:47:35 AM
Very pretty!

Why are they called infinity?


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: the felt fairy on October 16, 2007 12:41:45 PM
I'll have to let BoBaily answer that one, I was wondering also!


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: bruisedpeach22 on October 16, 2007 12:54:41 PM
I think it's becuase the part that the beads are attatched to is the symbol for infinity.

Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: Ratfinkz on October 17, 2007 02:29:12 PM
My partner received on Saturday - but as she has not posted pictures yet I thought I would put a couple up! I did pm her to ask if she minded but I have had no reply - so I hope this is ok!





I didnt make the bangle - but I made the dice on it - and the bangle has got lots more hooks so if she takes partrt in another OTT she can ask for charms!

AGH! Being sick makes you realize how life goes on very fast when you're MIA. Everyone's received some great stuff! I love the dodo and key chain deer--how cute! And thank you, alkalntrin, for posting pictures of the AWESOME stitch marker charms you sent me. I love 'em! (And the rest of our, um, on-the-side swap! Would it be violating rules to post pictures of those? Alkalntrin did such a great job on them; I'd like to have her work recognized. :))

That said, I need to RUN to the post office to mail this package before the office closes.

I just wanted to say a public thank you for my amazing dice charm bracelet that Feline2001 made me, and also apologise for not replying to her sooner - its not an excuse but work has just been AWFUL this last week :'(. Gah. Anyway, swap packages cheer me up and I love my dice.

So big big thanks, and sorry again  :)

Everyone's tiny things look amazing. Hopefully Feline2001 will get mine soon!

I received the cutest little turkey from Caecilia42. Isn't he adorable! He's sitting on my tv with some pumpkins that I got from CraftyCarrie. I gave him some toothpick feet so he'd stand up straighter but I don't think it shows much.
Thanks so much Caecilia42!!!!


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: Caecilia42 on October 19, 2007 07:52:37 AM
I'm glad you like him - my boyfriend loved him (and I think wanted to keep him).

Everyone's received such great tiny stuff! Knitting Nora is amazing (:o), and the amigurumi critters are too cute!

On a side note, my firefox spell checker is telling me that amigurumi should be "ruminating." I find that rather funny. :)


Title: Re: OTT Round 15 Gallery!
Post by: riario on October 22, 2007 08:14:48 AM
Caecilia42: glad you like the pincushion :D
alkalntrin: it is embroidery, I got the image off the web somewhere and transfered it onto the fabric

silk sent me the loveliest little deer, which i received right after my camera broke. I was borrowing a camera for a school project and took pix in my office on campus. I wish I had pictures of her deer, it's really the most darling thing ever.

meet lumpy the sheep:





i spun his "fleece" from raw (as in full of dung and hay) wool that i had. I soaked the wool washed it and "carded" it (by pulling it into big clumps) and then spinning it into lumpy singles and then plying it with itself. Then I knit it up into a sheep, which i made up as I went along. It's stuffed with left over roving, cotton and rice that i soaked in lavender EO so it can be used as a snuggley or a sachet :)

Outside:

And Inside (the money didn't come with it. :) ):

My husband was jealous of this. :) And it came at just the right time: I was looking for wallet to buy!
I think I may add some embellishments to it when I have the time.
Thanks so much, MissNoemi! You were a great partner!
