11  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R8-SU: CLOSED; SO: April 3, 2017 on: April 09, 2017 04:14:33 PM
Some sad news to report - Teesha Moore, the original creator of these patches and so much more, suffered a stroke two days ago during emergency abdominal surgery. Her husband Tracy reported yesterday that she's conscious and has regained some mobility, but is still in serious condition. While as far as I know, Teesha has never participated directly in Craftster, her unmistakable style and teaching has had an immense influence on so many of us in many aspects of the modern crafting movement, from art journaling to quilting to doll making. Please join me in sending Teesha prayers and good wishes for a full recovery - we haven't yet learned all she has to show us.

Ooooooooh - I may in on this one again.... the last one had my stamped mini me.... I am not sure what to do for this one though...

Oh, you have to join, Bonnie! I'm certainly not going to pass up this round, even though I'm crazy busy at the moment. But all that will be over long before the send-out date.

I also want to get or make a proper binder for my cards from the first round. I have them in plastic pages, but they're just sitting around on the desk. They deserve better.

Hopefully just found a perfect sized box for shipping! Yay! I'm crossing my fingers!

That is absurdly satisfying, isn't it? Sometimes a swap project that you aren't even particularly proud of can be completely redeemed by finding the perfect box to send it in. Cheesy

Sharalee, the jellyfish was just an elongated semi-circle of fabric (the kind of sparkly sheer called "crystalette ") gathered tightly at the top and less along the bottom. I stuffed it with white crystalette to make it shine more, then just stitched it down. The tendrils are embroidered in chain stitch with a few zigged strips of crystalette added for texture.

I'm glad people like it. I was a bit skeptical myself - I think I expected it to come out differently somehow, I think.

After a long, frustrating period of no inspiration and nothing to work on, I took out a whole bin of cigar boxes and other odd wooden containers, and started stacking them on top of each other, inside each other, etc. It didn't really inspire me, and I put them all away and went to bed. But the next morning on the way to work, I pulled out my notebook and sketched what is definitely turning out to be The Idea. So I'm moving ahead at last. Not roaring ahead, but making forward motion, at least.

An extension? I'm not sure I'd be able to make full use of it, because I know after the 10th I'm super-busy at work for another week. Sad So I have to get as much done this week as humanly possible. Or more.

I can't believe my little jellyfish got all the way to Scotland so fast! I only mailed it on Monday! Shocked The postal services between Canada and western Europe continue to baffle me.

For some reason I'm having a lot of trouble seeing anyone's photos today. I hope it'll fix itself once the clownshow hysterics are over. I can almost read people's insane clown posts enough to tell that there are great things being shown, but it's frustrating not to know what they are! Grin

Leamington! I never knew about the giant tomato tourist booth!

You girls look so happy, it warms me heart Smiley.
  Just seeing you two grinning together makes me happy!

And I love the teeny tiny Bear Cat patch!

I received a pair wonderful, HUGE patches from craftylittlemonkey the other day, in our unofficial swap partnership. She knows me well enough that we didn't need to give each other themes and yet she got me perfectly.



The detail of the embroidered flowers along the bottom is wonderful, and isn't the blue-to-green fabric perfect? It has a very moonlit feel to it.



I've always loved the symbol of the three running hares (it's origin doesn't seem to be known, though it can be traced quite far back), and I especially like that the three are different colours.

Here's a detail of some of the stitching and beading:



Thank you for these! They're the biggest I've ever seen, and I love them!

I received an amazing pair of ENORMOUS patches from craftylittlemonkey, my unofficial partner in this swap. I see why you made them this size - it allows for a lot more detail. But it's also a lot more work!

Both my official and unofficial patches are done and will be in the mail tomorrow morning.

My "official" patch is done but I'm having trouble deciding on a back/frame fabric. Must get on with it so it'll get done. And the "unofficial" patch is sitting waiting patiently to get put together. Stop looking at me like that! Angry
