11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: STS Spring Market 2017 Gallery on: April 08, 2017 08:01:13 PM
Sold to kayrun - custom Teesha Moore patch (plus an extra because I was enjoying myself). The birdie was made by RubyTuesday, and I received the embroidered leaf on the left from nilmerg (then turned it into a patch).

I can't believe I've been missing the thread. I signed up but never actually posted! I'm excited for this swap! I can't wait to make a sweet stamp of me making a stupid face. I'll have to brainstorm some fun facts, too! But the best part is going to be seeing what all of you guys do for your cards!! Craftster is so special!!

And so are you, Kira!!  Grin

I placed an order a drum carder today. I am sooo excited!!!

Expect to see lots of fun fibery goodness in my shop soon.  Grin

Eee! I'm excited for you, and also excited about what you're going to (literally) crank out!

As another one who is brand-new to the swap (and didn't know about it the first time around because I was away), I'm really happy that people from the first round are coming back for more! When I saw that roster of swappers I was pretty amazed, and also kicking myself for missing it! So, thank you for playing again so I can swap with you, too.  Smiley

Speaking of baby pictures: I dismantled and condensed a lot of my old photo albums, which left me with a massive amount of unnecessary photos for which I've been seeking crafty reuse. Thus, photos of little-me are going to make their way into this swap somehow.

!!!TSM!!! [waves] I'm in the same boat: gone for ages and happy to finally get back into STS!

If anyone is interested in starting an altered book project, let me know and I'll keep an eye out for discarded hardcover books at my library that might fit your theme. I'll send them to you for free (no trade/swap necessary). I'm adding two to my shop as freebies: "The Age of Overkill" and "The Needle's Eye".

I wish I had! Literally nothing noticeable done to it since 2015.  Sad I am not giving up on it, though; I may have a lot of crafting time this summer and I hope to get cracking on it again! Thank you for keeping me accountable!  Grin

This California-based mobile shop is OPEN for business.

Items crafted by a non-smoker in a smoke-free and no-pets environment.


Soliman handspun bamboo - about 160 yards. There are some breaks in this single-ply yarn; I apologize...1 point.

Handspun alpaca shawl - photo forthcoming...rib stitch shawl made with my handspun alpaca yarn, which is thick-and-thin and was previously fulled in a different project I frogged. Crocheted trim 3 points.

Sheath top OR infinity scarf - This can work as either; if you know you dont want it as a shirt Ill remove the straps. Made with gorgeous Plymouth Kudo yarn (Aran weight, 55% Cotton, 40% Rayon, 5% Silk). Also, this has only been tried on for these photos; it is not otherwise used. Smiley 2 points.

Plarn Hanging Guerrilla Gardening Pods - made from grocery bags, these little hanging pouches can be stuffed with soil and a plant cutting and left in a place that needs some life. -- half point for both


Bedroom/Art Studio sign - For the artist with minimal space, this cross-stitch can be framed, hung on the door, and flipped one way or the other, depending on what the room's being used for in any given moment. (: -- 1 point with no frame (If I can find suitable framing materials here, I'll update this)

Mug rug (or Teesha Moore patch) - Front and back shown in photos. I can add an embroidered word if you like, just let me know. 1 point.

Doctor Who Teesha Moore patch - small, and a somewhat obscure reference. Companion Donna Noble once had a huge bug like this on her back that no one could see except a spanish-speaking woman who shouted, "Hay algo en tu espalda!" She was wearing an army surplus jacket and has reddish hair, so that's what's going on on this patch. - half a point.

Christmastime Teesha Moore patches - Half a point each (12 days of Christmas or Chestnuts Roasting), or both for 1 point.

Seal Teesha Moore patch - 1 point.

India print Teesha Moore patch - half a point.

Custom royal crest cross-stitch hoop - The basic outline, from a vintage German pattern book, is complete, but what/who is the royal person/object being celebrated?? You decide. I can also add any words you like. 1 point.

Small custom cross-stitch or embroidered hoopla - Could be, for example, your favorite word (naughty or nice) in ornate art nouveau design, or a design from this site of modern-ish ideas or this one in French with hundreds of cute things. Check with me to discuss before claiming! 1-2 points depending on the project.

Custom Teesha Moore patch - Check with me to discuss before claiming! 1 point.


Scrappy recon journal - A very mixed-paper journal with sewn, 8.5x11 pages. Cloth cover taken from another old book I gutted. 2 points.


Mystery black roving - I just found this at a second hand store and I have so much! It is shiny, fine, and soft, and the staple length isn't very long. It doesn't feel like the bamboo fiber I've used in the past, but I wouldn't rule it out either. I don't have a scale, but I'll liberally estimate in my measurements. 2 points for the whole grapefruit-sized ball.

Sea glass from Mexico - not exclusively glass; there were a couple other neat things that washed up on the tropical shore where I wandered. Half a point for a baggie.

Pick one item with any claim:

Booklet of paint chip cards - Larger than an ATC.

Paper, book pages, and ephemera...I have lots of random salvaged things. Working in a library means more cool discarded paper-based things than I can keep up with! I hope you like dictionary pages, because I want to send you some.

yarn - Patons North America Classic Wool DK Superwash - 1 skein (124 yds), Autumn Spice colorway. I misplaced the ball band.

Wood (or laminate wood-like) bangle to be modified as you see fit.

Copper-colored crafting wire - very bendy (like Phoebe).

White Sage - grown in my previous garden without pesticides, this California native plant is widely considered sacred and burned for purification and blessing. Unsustainable wild harvesting of white sage is rapidly wiping out the plant, so please don't purchase the bundles brought in from the mountains. I can either send you a "wand" of the white sage, or the equivalent amount of loose leaves.

Discarded book: For your altered book project. You don't have to spend any points in my shop to get a book! Currently I have The Age of Overkill, Gypsies: Wanderers of the World, The Explorers, The Age of Exploration (gypsy and exploration books have images), The Collective Dream in Art (great for a round robin art journal!).


  • Luscious prepped fiber for spinning or felting--batts, roving, etc. I especially need a blend of lizard/iguana greens!
  • jam, preserves, honey, baked yummies, tea, good edible things.
  • natural health/beauty/cleaning/household products
