Thought I would share now that it's been hung. Don't pay attention to the fact we live in a 120 yr old house with bad lighting lol

It fits perfect and wasn't even planned for the area but matches my bedspread and accents the walls so well. I love it!

24  Massive Cabalage! in Knitting: Completed Projects by Bugaboo1 on: May 13, 2008 03:54:26 AM
I'm so excited I can finally post this!

This is an afghan I made for the recent make a friend swap and sent off from NY State USA to Victoria Australia to my new friend there! She finally received it and snuggled up with it so now I get to share!

a close up of color and texture. It was done on size 10 needles using Bernats Twist in teal twist (which really looks more like turquoise and brown then any kind of teal)

The pattern is available free here  http://www.bernat.com/pattern.php?PID=2809

I ran into the display at the store and that yarn fell in my cart, the free rip off was on the side and I knew it was just meant to be!

I have a few pictures to post for wanderluster of what I sent her for her 2nd package.

This is the bag I made, I forget the dimensions but it's the exact size of a US Flat rate box (the flat kind)

It has 1 outer pocket and then

when she gets bored it's completely reversible. The proange side also has an outer pocket.

I lined each with the opposite sides material.

this is some of what I put inside. I know I also made a needle roll for knitting needles and started a knit hand band for her and sent some yarn as well. I couldn't decide on which kit she should get so I sent her a learn to knit book with needles and accessories and then a learn to sew book with a pattern some material and a sewing kit as well as the get to know you items and such.

Glad you enjoyed it wander! Can't wait to see it in action!

I received package 2 (and then some) from wanderluster today. Since losing her partner after the first box we decided for the 2nd we'd do the required but also get to know one another. I've been havign a blast getting to know her and here's whats in the box!

These first 2 are the get to know her items. The pina colada bath salts and stars were to cute and deserving of their own pic. The rest is all there though, cute drink stir's yummy cookies! raspberry thin mints, sweedish fish YAY and a really cool scarp book she made out of a reconed book with photos and some of both of our likes inside.

A soap making kit! YAY now as soon as finals are over I'm gonna make me some soap! She ordered some cool scents as well.

There is one more item my husband forgot to photograph so the framed mosaic of the sun is missing, but she sent 3 fabrics for me to play with and an adorable wish pillow she made for me. Inside were stuck some wishes to get me started like "I wish you can always crank out beautifuk craft fair crap" LOL (inside joke) " wishing you never have a hangover" LOL and more!

TY Wander I love it all and we get to meet soon YAY

28  Re: fill a purse round 3 gallery in The Swap Gallery by Bugaboo1 on: April 28, 2008 04:26:46 PM
I received from Nymphara today and she had received a while ago so I am posting pictures of what I sent as well....

First off for what I received!

A messenger style tote with hand embroidered numbers in deci and binary on the front flap!

Inside is a beautiful blue fabric and then all the contents

A cute little pouch with numbers all over it (One would never guess I'm a number nerd!)

a bottle of hand lotion, a tub of body cream and a bottle of lavender scented pillow spray for sleeping (with finals coming up that may come in handy lol)

A set of hand made knitting needles and a ball of some yummy poly/cotton yarn!

and a so soft cute hand knit pouch (which of course I can't get a great pic of) But love it!

Thanks so much Nymphara this has been great!

Now for what I sent as Nympharas been busy running around too.

An ATC Purse about 10in high that holds 10 ATC's all around with internal clear vinal pockets so she can change them out but they stay protected.

The inside to the liner shown above, out side was a black on black trebel clef pattern, inside notes with the matching handle

A tissue pack holder

triangular cosmetic (or anything) bag I filled with chocolates

another liner that has a blue interior on this one...the liners and handles are interchangable to change the backdrop of the purse. And 2 of the finished ATC's

Then everything together, there were 3 liners in full to reflect her likes and favorite color, and 10 ATC's as well the 5 pictured here were an Opera theme and then on the other side I sent 4 for the 4 seasons and a random card.

And there is a zipper closure on top to keep all her stuff inside!

29  ATC Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Bugaboo1 on: April 20, 2008 02:20:32 AM
I made this for a recent swap and so happy my partner received so I can now share!

This is the ATC bag I made her with 3 liners to change out the back ground behind the ATC's and also to keep them safe inside the bag. With matching handles to go with each liner

this is a closer pic showing the cards (don't mind them I'm not an atc maker) but the card holder is internal so no stitching is felt on the outside of the bag.

and this shows the inside with it all lined and zipper closure on top.

It was fun to make and play with the clear vinyl and figure out how to make it so the cards could be easily changed but kept protected and all.

Ok here it all is!

There are 4 skeins of yarn, 2 in an acrylic/mohair blend (love), 2 in 100% wool (equally love) and a vintage knitting pattern book. Then 6 really cool good sized buttons, a thick and oh so warm headband for winter time! A stack of note cards with cute birds on them.


this wonderful bag inspired from a small wall hanging I had on my wist...the bag is so much better because it's in one of my favorite rusty orange colors and both sides have the tree image on them.

the inside is beautiful as well and holds a LOT! Theres a sectioned off portion with an elastic pocket and then 4 interior pockets. I so so love this and think this alone is more like a large wish!

But then to go with it and make it a set

2 zippered pouches, the one with the leaf is a length wise pouch, zipper on the small end, the one with the strap has internal pockets as well, both lined in the same fabric as the bag.

and inside more police badges YAY!!! I'm seriously going to just start collecting these in mass and make a police/fire badge quilt one day!

I love it all Huff this was such a wonderful package my stuff can never compare! And yes yes I am still hugging my new bag! I'm not insane all of you would too!
