Yes, the tree of hearts is indeed fantastic!! I had a couple more 4" embroidery hoops that I'd spray-painted red a while back, so I popped it into one of those and will hang it up in my crafting space tonight Smiley.

Troublet spoiled me BIGTIME, using things on my Wist as inspiration Smiley. Without further delay:

I *love* this muchly!! We don't get lots of rain where we live, and when we do it tends to be in the form of nasty ole thunderstorms. I miss being able to be outside in the rain without having to worry about lightning! This embroidery + applique reminds me of what it was like to live somewhere where you could enjoy playing in the rain. The colors are perfect -- very much me Smiley.

A closer-up shot; the colors are more true in this picture than in the above one. Flawless work!

This next picture is also inspired by one in my Wist. Again, fantastic-for-me colors. The bird and leaves are paper. I really want to try something like that, so it's wonderful to have one that I can look at up-close-and-personal.

Some crocheted cloths (I've been wanting more of these!) and one of my favorite cartoon characters of all time, Blooregard Q. Kazoo!! He will sit on the worktable in my home office / crafting space and I will smile every time I see him Smiley.

Thank you sooooo much, Troublet!! This was truly a fantastic package.

The monster bag makes me smile Smiley. He's cute!!

I received a wisty surprise today from starmumplus -- it's a quilted list-taker, which has been at the top of my wish list, and I love it!! When I'm taking notes in meetings, I hate people to see how messy messy messy my handwriting is, so now I can close my list-taker & no one's the wiser. I almost broke down last week and bought a generic, black, masculine list-taker at the office supply store -- now I'm soooooo glad I didn't!!

Here's the front:

The inside has such gorgeous cheery fabric -- love the lemon-yellow flowers, and two pockets (one for my legal pad, the other for my desk calendar):

This is a pic of the front and back, so you can see all of the different fabrics starmumplus used. There's such a nice selection of gorgeous fabrics!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, starmumplus!!

Here are the knitted washcloths and felted bowls I received from lapoli. I love them all -- love the textures, especially love the colors. The felted bowls are a lovely mossy green, which the picture, I don't think, does justice to (lapoli, if you have a better picture of the bowls, please post it!). When I reshaped the bowls, I gave them flat bottoms and will use them for storing buttons and other crafting bits-n-bobs. I love having the washcloths because I'm a newbie knitter and being able to hold and see how stitches should look is invaluable -- not to mention the washcloths are beautiful and oh-so-soft Smiley. Thanks lapoli!!

The dressform pincushion is ADORABLE!! It's going on my Wist Smiley.

I rearranged my craft room / office last week and finally got around to hanging all my wall stuff up a couple nights ago. I used embroidery hoops to frame the cross-stitch and the embroidery Padfoot sent me, so wanted to show a picture of the end result of those.

I used a black Sharpie to "paint" the embroidery hoop the witch cross-stitch is in, and happened to have some adorable black polka-dotted ribbon to use as a hanger.

For the tree-n-stars embroidery, I had some dark blue with cream-colored stars fabric, so bonded the embroidery to that fabric. The fabric shows through, but I like how it looks - sort of like a very dark night with lots of stars. I had an embroidery hoop I'd spray-painted silver a while back and like how that looked with the fabric. No silver ribbon so I used pink for now, but I'll score some silver ribbon next trip to Hobby Lobby and swap it out.

My craft room walls are very green, and both of these look really nice hanging up against the green Smiley.

Thanks again, Padfoot!!

Wow, I'm first Smiley. I received from padfoot yesterday -- she made not one, but TWO, goodies off my Wist, and sent along some extras that will absolutely be put to use.

A pic of everything:

Wisty goodie #1 -- I *love* trees and the moon-n-stars; this embroidery is perfect for me:

Wisty goodie #2 -- This sentiment cracks me up; it'll be perfect in my crafting space:

Padfoot's embroidery and cross-stitching are wonderful! I love to stitch but don't make too many things to keep, so it's really special when I get things other people have stitched just for me.

I'll frame these in embroidery hoops or lace them over foamboard and get them hung up in my crafting space this week Smiley.

Thank you very much, padfoot!!

7  Re: Spring Cleaning 2010: Fill a FLAT RATE Box; GALLERY send by 5/22 in The Swap Gallery by ~Glenda on: May 15, 2010 05:55:27 PM
noturavggeek, nice haul Smiley.

I received from redflags today! She filled me up a box with knitting supplies Smiley. I am a (very!) newbie knitter and had told myself I wouldn't go spend a bunch of money on supplies until I get past the all-thumbs beginner phase. I have two sets of needles and two skeins of yarn (plus a gauge counter and the rubber protectors that go on the end of needles), period.

I'd really wanted to try out circular needles but couldn't justify buying more needles, so when redflags offered to send me a variety of needles I jumped on that offer!! She sent me a whole bunch of needles, a nice variety of yarn (which our dogs were VERY interested in checking out LOL), and a knitting book (oh, I so love crafting books and magazines!!).

I can't wait to go through the knitting book (which I will do when I get off Craftster), and I can't wait to try out that chunky red-and-black yarn and the circular needles. Thank you so, so much, redflags!!! (And thank you for coordinating the swap, Oops Creations.)

8  The Princess & The Pea in Needlework: Completed Projects by ~Glenda on: May 01, 2010 12:15:52 AM
One of the few embroideries I've made for myself, which now hangs in my crafting/office space.  The design is by Nicole of "Follow the White Bunny" and it was a blast to stitch.

9  Leg Lamp (an ode to A Christmas Story) in Needlework: Completed Projects by ~Glenda on: May 01, 2010 12:08:13 AM
I made this for my sweetie's birthday earlier this year. He got a big kick out of it, which was my intention Wink.

10  Re: Tea Towel Tour Gallery - As seen on TTTV in The Swap Gallery by ~Glenda on: November 24, 2009 11:36:39 AM
Here's my completed towel, and then, just for grins, a picture of my towel from this round and my towel from the last round Smiley. I want to back both or figure out how to put a trim around the edges, and then hang them in our kitchen when we finish reno'ing it (we're doing the work ourselves so it happens in spurts!). Thanks to my group-mates for a fabulous towel -- my guys love it too!!
