 I learned something making these...Your are not to iron on the fabric side but you are to put your garments on the shinny side...who knew...Odd but that is what the web said also I did put the insul-bright batting between the fabric too keep your table safe!

babalina, you are ROCKIN' that screw gun! (that's what my husband calls them... I think it sounds silly, but he's the expert.  hahaha)

Awesome stuff so far!  I really like those tabletop ironing thingies.  I always end up using the tried and true layered towel technique.

Screw gun ROTFL...I was so proud of myself to prove I don't need to hire some ripoff artist or over paid overweight jackass to come act like I am stupid and have no clue what I am doing and talk down because I am a woman I can do most things construction wise in my house...I will hire my neighbor to do electric stuff he is a lic. ele. so that is something I dont want to mess with. and some plumbing but I am woman with tools hear me roarrrrr ;D ;D

As for the table top iron matt...I have a big ol folded piece of fleece and works for me ROTFL...I have one of them just too dang lazy to open it to use ROTFL...I do use my big one all the time hell it is up most of the time I would say 4 days a week it stays up in the dining room OOPS I mean my new sewing room ROTFL...

Oh my that is just beautiful!  I love the simplicity of it. 

Babalina, I hear you with the 'just because you have ovaries you can't swing a hammer' thing... The hubbs is one of those jack of all trades guys and has vowed to teach our daughter (and sons.. but mostly our daughter) everything he knows so she'll never have to rely on a man to fix her car, run her electrical, or build her deck.  ;)

Next is the ton of supplies she sent me: extra pirate fabric, cat in the hat fabric, glue sticks, felt, glue, smocking kit, metallic paint, lots of iron on transfers, and shrinky dinks which I can't wait to try out. ;D



Thanks for the awesome package babalina58!  ;D

I got my package from YumJello today! =D and OMG! She told me she stuffed the box until it ripped, and she was not kidding! I could see in the corners where the box started coming apart, she really filled it up!
Thanks so much YumJello! I really did not expect to get so much! and especially not thinking that i would get a whole lot that i really liked. But there was not a piece in the box i would not use! =D YOU ARE AMAZING!

She also sent me a TON of leather! REAL LEATHER! Do you know how expensive that stuff is?! Anyway, if we could get graded on these swaps i think YumJello should get a 10000% !!!

As most of you know, my boyfriend had to move to another state to follow his dream as a musician from his original roots (home in California) before he had moved to Washington where he met me a year ago. The only reason he stayed here so long was because of me, but he finally could not stay here any longer and i was not going to keep him here, =] he needs that freedom.
We are going to be apart for almost a year before i get to go be with him because i need to finish Culinary school first. So in the meantime i am making him a big quilt in his favorite color scheme with lots of cool applique and designs on it! He loves blues and teals with brown! And YumJello sent me primarily those colors, Alot of the stuff she sent will be going into his quilt! I am so greatful to her!

On to photo! There are lots! And my camera hates to pick up the correct colors, i would have to use flash for that, but i hate using the flash, so i only did some that way.

Lol here is what the box looked like after i opened it >.< i was excited!


The tons of leather!


Most of the teals and blues!


More blues


And the browns =]


And more browns


Some cool colors


And some blue and browns together, she sent fat quarters!


Here is a photo of some of the pile with the flash on for real colors



Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 60 Gallery
Post by: JessySihk on July 21, 2010 07:53:50 PM

thats quite the haul of fabric there!  :)

i received from Lindy!  she sent TWO robot shirts for Aria.  and they are both loved already.  Aria insisted on wearing one right away and she also went to bed in it...she'll probably want to wear it tomorrow and the only way I'll be able to get her out of it is by bribing her with the second one I'm sure.  heh.

Lindy sent me a message saying one of them was messed up and that I could use it as nightshirt maybe.  phhiff!  :)  its barely  noticeable and while Aria is currently using it as a nightshirt, it's going to be a day time shirt as well!






thanks!!!

I received my AMAZING package from YumJello01 on Thursday but it's been an awful week and this is my first chance to get some pics taken and posted.

She sent me the most awesome, handthrown tea set including mug, creamer and sugar bowl.



AND, she also made me some phoenix inspired earrings. She said it was only her 2nd time ever beading. She did a great job!



Thank you so much for the absolutely amazing set, YumJello01!! ;D

Lol no i decided not too =P i put so much work into the applique already, the whole top of it is going to be 100% cotton, so im thinking i will do another quilt after this one using some of the fabrics you sent =] Or maybe use it for purses and such. I am DEFINITELY going to make my Boyfriend a new wallet from some of the leathers you sent me!

I recieved from edie22 this morning!  Everything is perfect!  Thank you kindly edie22!  Now, on to the pictures and descriptions!

Firstly we have 2 of the cutest embroidery hoops I have ever seen!  They're rubber and look like real wood.  Really neat.  And they have little hangers on top to hang them on the wall.  Next is a super adoreable turtle stamp.  Serisouly, its so cute I cant wait to stamp it on the envelopes I write to my out of state family.  Then we have a baggie of safety eyes with are perfect for my amigurumis, and a pattern for a dog jacket.  Which will look so cute on both my dogs. 


Next we have yarn.  Oh mercy, I love yarn and edie22 managed to send me a perfect shade of burgundy!!!!  Which is so great because I can never find a good shade of burgundy here.  She also sent a lovely cream color and 2 pretty shades of purple yarn too!


Thank you edie22 for my package!  Its so great to get craft supplies in the mail instead of bills!

She also sent some awesome extras, an owl stamp, dragonfly stamp and a Harry Potter Bertie Bott's Bean bag ;D that is already displayed on my mantle with all my other HP stuff.

I received from Jessy!  She claimed me for a surprise and she sent this lovely and extremely NEEDED thread catcher/pin cushion/tool cady!  I had a thread catcher listed but she expanded on the idea and made it much more useful!  How did she know I am constantly misplacing my seam ripper and small scissors?  Heh.  ;)  The thread catcher is removable which will make cleaning it out much easier.  Thank you!!!



sorry.  no action shots.  my sewing machine is in my dining room turned craft room which is dubbed the craft cave.  its like top secret and i'd have to kill you if you saw the interior of it.  erm...okay, actually its just a huge mess and i'd be super ashamed to have photo documentation of it on the world wide web. 


Title: Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 60 Gallery
Post by: JessySihk on July 28, 2010 08:06:18 PM

The pincushion is also filled with rice in the bottom so its weighted and can sit on the edge of your sewing table without slipping off!

i've received 3 packages recently and I have been very horrible at getting pictures up.  Let's go from first received to last received.

From
YumJello
I got pillowcases!! and awesome fabric.  Now, these pillowcases are amazing.  I can't wait to sleep with them.



close up of kirk and spock.



and the fabric she sent! I have no idea what i'm goign to make with it yet, but it looks like fun.


okay, and then i got supplies from JuiceBox! i love supplies.

fabric!

cards and buttons!


And finally, i received from padfoot today.  She sent me a bunch of stuff!

there's a pair of blue shiny earrings, a live long and prosper wood burned key chain, and stitch markers! they say, "make it so" and "beam me up"!! and there's some embroidery floss and buttons too


i put these on immediately, so they were at my desk instead of where i took pics. 

WHEW! that ought to teach me to leave all my swaps until the last second.

I love yard sales for that reason.  Lots of good deals to be found!   And that fabric you used made for a pretty purse.  I would of never guessed it was once a shower curtain.

Hehe =] I love it. Its just the same as if i had bought it on the bolt at Joann's in the home decor or curtain section! except instead of being $15-$40 a yard! It was only .50 cents for a couple yards =]

I got the most AMAZING package with rlynn!!!

She sent me an absolutely gorgeous vintage necklace chock full of flowers, clock pieces, brass bits and glass beads. I'm so in love with it!!! It really is an heirloom quality piece of jewelry and I plan on passing it down later in life.







And not only that, but she sent me this stunning felt brooch, directly inspired by my Etsy favorites! The colors are just so lovely! Here's a link (http://www.etsy.com/listing/13821842/flower-garden-wool-felt-pin) to the original. She did an amazing job!



Thanks so much! :-* :-* :-*

Thanks! :-*

Awww...Ma Rut!  It makes me so happy that you like the crafted goods I sent.  THIS is why I participate in swaps...its such a good feeling when someone really likes what you make.  It was a lot of fun making the necklace.  Its totally different from the stuff I normally do but it really started to come together as I went along.  The funny thing is everything was in my stash.  Heh.  It was destined to be created.  :)

I received such a great package in the mail today from the wonderful babalina58.  She claimed me for pirate inspired pants and they turned out so cute!  And to make my package even more wonderful she sent me some embroidery hoops which are great because Im running low on them.  AND she sent me harry potter pins & pillowcases!  Eeeeep!  I love them!  Im giggling as I write this because the pillow cases have a huge picture of Harry Potter on them and at the bottom they say "I Heart Harry Potter"  And she sent two of them so I can put one on my pillow and hubbys pillow too.  ha ha!  So great!   Thank you so much babalina58!

I received my package today from BabyCakes8510.  She claimed me for yarn.  I think I'll use the little balls for some granny squares.  (I got a granny square book at a yard sale and it shows lots of different things you can make with them.) And the skein will probably be used for trimming on a few shawls or capelets.  As Im thinking it would look good with on some snow white colored ones.  Thank you BabyCakes8510 for claiming me!

I received last week from Lindy but have been rearranging and couldn't find either my laptop cord or my camera.. lol!!  I whittled down the pile a bit and found everything today, so here's some pictures finally!

Felt food for my little bean!!  An apple, sammich (the bread is NOT messed up, woman!  It's adorable!!), milk carton, cookie, and potato chips with a little bag to put everything in!



And here's some gratuitous action shots:

Little bean enjoying a sammich:

Thanks so much, Lindy!!  She loves it!!  :D  (the boys love it too, but she hides it from them.. lol!)

Missmoppet: I am glad you are happy with your yarn! If I had a bigger box I would have sent even more! I stuffed that one to near bursting! There are more little balls where those came from. I have been on a granny square kick for a little while and they are perfect for that. Actually, I am organizing a crochetalong for a granny square a day if you want to join us! Its great motivation.

and my favorite pages

Thank you so much!  I can't wait to start filling it up!!!  It's also made from all recycled materials which makes it even better!

and from Babycakes a crochet hook roll and some stitch markers which I really needed!


I love the colors and can't wait to try the stitch markers.  I hate counting and since I am just learning to crochet it's a must at this point for me!

I received my package from themuppet yesterday!!! 

My boyfriend LITERALLY would not wait until I could find a box cutter or scissors, he opened the box with a key, and he wouldn't let me take a picture of everything wrapped, but it was nicely wrapped in pink tissue paper...

She claimed me for a brain slug...

We love him!  Did you starch his little feelers?  He's too cute!

And she saw my comment about the drawstring beanies that MissMoppet made for babalina, so she made ME one!!!

Here is John modeling it.  I thought I got a detail picture, but the drawstrings have little skull beads!  And there are buttons!  I can't wait until it's cool enough to wear this!!!

OH EM EFF GEE she made us artwork!!!

Completely amazingly awesome original "Monster Children" artwork!!!!  Our favorite is the robot:


I think our shelves of super awesome swap sweetness are starting to really come along!!!!



THANK YOU themuppet!!!

I'm so glad you like everything :D  those monster children were a total whim, but I see a series in my future.. lol!

I used watered down glue on the brain slug's feelers - they were drooping and driving me nuts!  I tried wiring them, but it would NOT cooperate.  I'm glad they're standing!

I added the monster kids to my fave projects! 

I received an AWESOME package from Neeliarose.  She claimed me for a travel tic tac toe and checkers set.  These are EXACTLY what I pictured!!!! I am so excited and it's going to be hard to keep these hidden from the kids until Christmas.  The game boards are actually bags that hold all the peices.

For my Landon she even used Ninja Turtle fabric!!  This is so perfect!


And Adia got the pink and purple checkers set!  I love checkers and so I see a lot of games in our future


Thank you so much Neeliarose!!

I cant wait to see it on his crate...I love these..I have to admit they take a lot more fabric then I thought we have a smaller kennel and I have several I have made and one large one this size ( I made a snoopy cover for it and was a bit shocked how much it took to cover them LOL...I am happy it looks great in your room and Caleb is a happy puppy in his den :)

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been a little MIA. I was out of town for about a week and just got back last night. I've got some catching up to do!

First of all, here are some pictures of the awesome crate cover babalina made for my sweet pup.



I love the fabric! The colors are great and it's a nice light weight material so my fluffy dog doesn't overheat at night. She even made it a little loose so that when I wash it, it will fit perfectly.



Action shot with Mr. Fuzzbutt himself. He really loves the fleece ropes she sent along with it!

Thank so, so much, babalina! It's exactly what I was hoping for!

I received from Cinnamon teal yesterday ...My granddaughter claimed it as a puzzle for her room on her Velcro wall. is so spoiled and gets whatever she wants from me..DH said I am a sucker No pun intended LOL

That's really cute! I'm excited that your granddaughter likes it so much. It was so much fun to paint. I have another photo of it on my blog (http://cinnamonteal.blogspot.com/2010/08/monster-of-deep.html), if anyone is interested in it.

I recevied from cinnamon teal!  she claimed me for artwork for Aria's room and she really delivered!! We absolutely LOVE it!  Everything is so well done and Aria was very excited to get a gift in the mail.  She was especially excited about the motorcycle!  

Yay! I love the happy toddler picture! It makes my day. When you told me she likes motorcycles, I knew I had to draw one for her.

THANKS EDIE!

I really appreciate you making those for me! They are beautiful and incredibly well crafted. I used both the apron and the zippered pouch already. They are beautiful. And of course thank you for posting pictures for me. When I get the digital camera issue figured out I will post some action shots.

This camera situation is killing me!

I am thrilled you like them.  I always get nervous when it comes to my photos.  I mean, just cause I like them, doesn't mean others will.  lol :)

Adorable granny square necklace. I've had it on my wists for awhile. It's made in my favorite colors.

Some people say she with the most at the end wins...I say she who has a massive stash at the end is not sewing quick enough LOL....

i'm up way past my bedtime posting swap pics so i thought i'd post what i sent to frosty.


the little purse is made from a silk scarf i never wore and is lined with gold satin


straight from her wists...though i did have to play with the alignment of the butterfly...it didn't lay correctly the way the original was connected to the chain so i played around with it until it stopped flipping.  i hate it when necklaces flip the wrong way.

The necklace is adorable and goes perfectly with a lot my outifts!!   Thank you very much for making them for me and i apologize for not posting the photos myself!!!!

Here is another pic (that i took the day the arrived)


I addition to the fab items Rylnn made me I received from missmoppet as well.  She sent me a powder room sign, a journal and a really cool jack skellington tshirt for my son!!
