1  Re: Hippy Swap Round 3 - Gallery of Hippy Happiness! in The Swap Gallery by catastrafi on: July 08, 2009 12:30:44 PM
I received! sorry for the delay, I got my ticket from the postman and had to wait ALL DAY to go and collect!!

I WAS AND STILL AM RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED! There's nobody in the house to be excited with at the moment so I'm going to be excited at you!

The package smelled yum so it took all of my energy not to open it in the car (believe me that is very good self control for me)

Anyways onto the beauty that became real in the hands of pops:
I will start with the small item:
I can't believe you would classify this as small pops, how clever! I am learning a little yoga to chill out- just at home and i cant remember poses

A fan out  mini kit with 5 relaxing poses and how they make you feel! heres a close up on my fav

(hehe cow face!)

next up is the medium item, this is what the lovely smell was coming from, an item to help me sleep (I've been having little bouts of insomnia) its a heat pack filled with oats and lavender, in gorgeous batik fabric

it doesn't stop there! I was spoiled with a matching eye mask to block out those pesky streetlights

And the large. I cannot put into words how I felt when I opened this, this item is beautiful and if happy was an adjective I would use it for this- a cushion cover with what must have been days of flawless embroidery and tiny details, see for yourselves:

We agreed to include some extras, Im going to try and keep these two for my little trip to spain in september:

(excuse the hairy legs...)

and a sunshiney window sticker ,  I can't decide where it should go yet, but im thinking it looks quite good in our living room, what do you think?

Thankyou so much pops, you are one talented lady! I had an amazing time crafting for you and the goodies you sent me really made my day (and probably my night too, I'm going to sleep so well!)

2  first post recons by a long time lurker/ craftster obsessive! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by catastrafi on: April 16, 2008 10:25:13 AM

Here's a bunch of random recons, and some tops made from scratch (all without patterns etc) I made over the easter holidays, when I actually had some free time *sigh*

Mens tee taken in and I added a random neck/chest panel with zipper, fab for cycling

Indian sari dress with lacy elasticated waist

Long sleeved top meets see through beach dress thing in a shiney jumper explosioN!

Big Black mens t, stencilled and refashioned into halter

Old orange Tee meets old tie- note the orchid detail...

Thats enough for now i think, more to be posted soon though!

Apologies for the sidewaysness...

Does anyone recon anything of a similar style? I'd love to see it, or take advice/criticism! (bring it on!)
