41  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Craftster Trading Cards #2 on: April 04, 2017 05:25:02 PM
I am so glad I accidentally opened the "Hottest New topics" post by accident, because I would have been pretty mad if I missed this!

I am definitely going to sign up, and will start thinking about what my "photo" will look like... And, I want to put different info on the back, so I'm going to have to look at the ones I have from the first round so I can borrow some ideas Smiley  And, I definitely want to swap with everyone! I get a little OCD about having complete sets of things...  Smiley

And, thanks for the reminder about the "non-standard" envelopes. Since a couple of mine came unstuck, I'm going to stick with regular envelopes this time!

Wow! And, I mean WOW, WOW, WOW! I just took some time to check out the gallery and I am blown away. Just....wow!

My patches are going to be late, but I think that, after seeing the level of greatness in the gallery, I really need to try something new on at least one patch...

I've updated status, and will leave feedback in a couple of days. Let me know if anything seems amiss, and thanks for the stellar communication!

fatewineroses, thanks for sharing your artist patches! I'd have to guess that one was a Picasso, and I'm sure I know the other, but can't put my finger on it. Thanks for sharing them Smiley ETA: I just saw that Abbeeroad provided me with the answer (thank you!) Cheesy

alwaysinmyroom, gorgeous patches from noooitaremybirthday! I love the variety of techniques/media on them (and do I spy some of her own budgie art?).

craftylittlemonkey, that tomato patch is awesome! The details that Wulf puts into his patches never cease to amaze me (tiny tomato blossoms on the border? spectacular!).

noooitaremybirthday and Audio, I love that you guys were able to meet up in person! What fantastic sets of patches (I love the Oaxacan cat {is that fabric paint or stitching? it looks so textural!}). And, those skull patches... well, I seriously covet them...

roler, I hear you on wanting to swap a patch with everyone on here! And what a score from jenleahlynn! It's a good thing you live half a world away, because I would be stealing that moray patch- it's perfect-from the beading, to the stitching, to the background fabric!

Inselaeffchen, ahhhhhh!!! That jellyfish is just wow! Wulf, you're killin' me with the awesome! I love the mix of materials and it captures a jellyfish so beautifully! Another one to covet...



Holy cow, everyone! I have to echo what everyone else has been saying- this gallery is outstanding, and the level of creativity is some of the best I've seen in all of the patch swaps I've organized. I bow to the greatness of you all!

And, thank you to everyone for being so spot-on with the communication! I just went through all of my PMs and then the gallery pics, and I think I have the status of everyone correct. It was just over 3 pages of messages (not that I'm complaining Smiley ), so if I missed something, and don't have your status listed accurately, just let me know. I'll leave a batch of feedback in the next couple of days. I just realized it's after 8:00 and I have to do laundry so I have clothes to wear to work tomorrow...

Okay, work and life have been kicking me in the butt pretty hard lately, so I'll be sending late. My planned day of crafting on Saturday didn't happen. Right now, I'm in end-of-term mode (I really should pay a bit more attention to my school calendar when I set up swaps), and I'm buried with assignments (you'd think that, after 23 years of teaching, I'd have mastered the job of grading papers, but it truly is my Achilles heel), and the stress of knowing that I don't have enough time to get through all of my curriculum (let's not even talk about the stress dreams that's causing).

But, I'm happy to see that you guys have been going right along, and the communication has been great! I will update all sent/received status tomorrow. And, I'll also take the time to properly view the gallery.

I love them! They'd make an adorable baby quilt with the addition of a few circus act blocks (appliqu, probably).

This is just spectacular! The level of detail is amazing! Well deserved Featured Project nod!

Thanks, Sharalee! I got a brief reprieve from the stress this weekend. Big storm expected so tomorrow's all day event is postponed. The storm seems like it's not going to be as bad as it was forecast to be, so I have tomorrow to craft!  And, whatever else, besides stress, that has sapped my energy over the past 2 weeks seems to have subsided. So, my patches might be ready on time!

Before I forget and miss the March Battle...

Prompt: March Battle Royale- Lord of the Flies
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Decoy Wasp Nest
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: My mom has a wasp problem at her camper up north, and read that a decoy nest will prevent wasps from building an actual nest. She found a pattern on Etsy, and I stitched it up. It wasn't looking as "ridgey" as the pattern picture, so I did a little tweaking g (not enough to get Brain Power points, however). Right now, it's not stuffed, so my mom can do that before she hangs it. I hope it works!  And...flies are insects and wasps are insects! I'm sure I could go deeper with the false idols and stuff, but my brain is craving simple Smiley

Although they have similar themes they are both so individually beautiful. I love her work. The topic, attention to detail, and execution.

You're a lucky bunny, Wulf!

Ditto to that! Thanks for sharing them!

crafty-becky, what a great set of patches! jenleahlynn has fabulous stitching skills!

Great tutorial, roler! I'll add the link to the swap starting post!

Hopefully, this thread can become a great resource for additional patch-making techniques, and the one main link can lead folks to other information (like craftylittlemonkey's corner tutorial).
