Hi! I had so much fun making that package. It took a bit to decide what to make and then it all hit me at once and I was a crafting tornado.

I received from Curiousfae! Such an amazing package. Look!!!

She was concerned about the wrinkles in the bag because of shipping. But its just so beautifully sewn. What a great job! The yoga mat will get those wrinkles out in no time. Thank you!

I love the quote. I told her that I love all things "Mother of Dragons" from Game of Thrones.

And she painted me the cutest little apron. I love Kaylees disposition on Firefly. The umbrella is perfect and so is your penmanship!

The mug is amaaaazing. I wish I could show all the sides of it at once. The little watercolor hearts are so pretty. Kupo! (Moogle from Final Fantasy reference)

Thank you for a great package. So nice to get to know you!

Hi everyone! What a gorgeous gallery.

I received my package from Gozer last night. I wanted to get daylight pictures...my phone works well but I see a noticeable difference during the day.

SO! oh my gosh. What an amazing package!

She sent me these beautiful bags made from fabric we had in common. Incredible! The sewing is amazing and I knit...many things at once...so the more project bags the better. These will be great for sock projects. I cannot WAIT to fill them up. And the pen cozy for the journal is incredible. I have always wanted one of those! And the beautiful purple and turquoise pens...Its funny. I just finished a shawl in these exact colors!

And she sent gum and pens and an amazing toy for my son. He loooves it.

And this apron! We both love purple and I love aprons. Its so amazing. The patchwork isnt a fabric...she actually made that. I dont know how she gets her patchwork so flat. Its amazing. The stitches are perfect. Thank you!

The straps are so long...I love tying around the front!

Close up of the stitches...

She drew this amazing unicorn necklace because we both love unicorns. Its horn is shiny Smiley

And that would be all and it would be fine, right? I would think so. But no...she sent more. LOOKIE!!!

A patchwork skirt! I love patchwork and its amazing! Elastic in front and drawstring. I want to live in it forever.

Wine glasses and arrows in black and white because thats pretty much all I wear and I love archery and wine!

The inside is as nicely sewn as the outside. Even pretty bias tape hemn!

And the back is adorable. It bunches all up when its tied!

Ok. I have posted alot of pictures. But its amazing!! Just one more!!!

Thank you so much, Gozer. Your package goes out tomorrow. I feel like I should include a big giftcard in it. You totally outcrafted me!

Lindy that shirt is amazing. Love the shark!

Freakie..HI!!! That sheet is awesome. I tried to make a crib sheet once for my now 7 year old. Did not look nearly as good as yours. There was alot of tucking in. LOL I was new to elastic.

I have been away knitting and teaching myself to dye yarn. I was considering dying some up for an etsy shop but figured I should work on developing a style. Its been a really fun journey. I have more yarn on the way. And more colors. So awesome!

So I have a big catch up post for here. Smiley

I crocheted some fingerless mitts and a cowl. Its in a bulky blue and brown acrylic yarn. Worked up super fast.


I fabric painted a celtic heart onto this book bag.


I knitted this hat. Its colorwork in acrylic yarn. So much fun!

These are felt danish woven heart ornaments on a cardboard background.

This is a red box that I painted and then applied star shaped glitter. I love this glitter. Everything should have star shaped glitter on it, IMO.

I got this idea from KittyKills pinterest. I tried to copy but felt is always harder for me than it looks.

This is some Christmassy fabric garland.

This is a little plastic bauble ornament that I decorated with some glitter and ribbon. (Yep. More star shaped glitter)

I crocheted this dishcloth. Its lily sugar n cream in a seashell pattern. It worked up super fast and it feels nice and sturdy.

Then the undyed yarn arrived. I have been elbow deep in acid dyes. Here are a few of my favorites so far!

This one is light aqua with a grassy green speckle to it.

This is a glitter yarn that I tried to make look "galactic"

This is what I dyed over the weekend.

There is some varigated purple glitter in the back on the left.

And there is a "sunset" themed ball.

And in the back center is just a hot mess. I tried to make it shrimpy pink with some black speckles. My goal was "shrimp on the barbie"...but the shrimp burned. WAY too much black. So I tried to fix it with a nice dip in some dark purple dye. Its not a total loss. It will make some nice warm socks. The colors are a little masculine. Blues and mauves and browns. Maybe for my older son for Christmas? Cheesy

I love the one on the front left. Its purple and fuscia and it turned out very vibrant. Im thinking shawl?

It looks like Im first! Cheesy

I just received the most amazing Christmas goodness from LindyV321. Thank you SO much. I cannot wait until I can put it up. I may just put it up now until its time to decorate for Halloween. My decoration colors are purple and silver. Smiley

First off...YARN! Amazing wooly blue/gray yarn. SO pretty!

and she painted me this beautiful big gorgeous plaque. I just love it!

There was an amazing hoop embroidery. This is so lovely. Thank you!!

And she sent extras. CUTE cake topper monsters. A santa necklace. She made me gift tags! And she sent ornaments and cards for me to make. My son is so excited. I dont think we can wait until the holiday season. So cute!

Thank you for the awesome swap, Lindy. I cant wait to do it again soon. Cheesy

Ahhh the kids helped? That is amazing. <3

The swaps are arriving!!

I painted a wine glass. (I was so scared. Im not a freehand person and that white paint was SO thick to work with)

And crocheted an little voodoo doll girl.

And made a hoop. I want to make another hoop for the hoopalong but I am really dragging my feet. I would LOVE to get some 4th of July decorations made for my mantle tomorrow. I may need to just sit hope all day and craft.

Sheepblue that butterfly is gorgeous. What beautiful work!

AIMR those blues are stunning. Ahhh and the bookmarks. You made so many! Good work!

I made a shawl. Its the Sunday Shawl Pattern. I wanted something huge come this fall. I like something to cuddle in when the dogs need to go out. The mornings are so pretty but they start getting really chilly.

Yay! Stuff from my swapathon is starting to arrive. I made a project bag for #23 I like this stylie because your working yarn can hang on your wrist as you walk around. I do wish that I could make it so it can stand up on its own when you sit it on a table in this style. Still in the works mentally.
