1  Unseamly Sweater finally finished!! [IMG heavy] in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by IHearTreesCry on: June 17, 2009 01:18:07 PM
I started an Unseamly Sweater (from The Happy Hooker) for my mom about two years ago. . . it got stowed away and never finished as is often the case with my crochet ambitions. I got it out the other day and started working on it--today, I finally put on the finishing touches!!

The sweater:

Sorry for the delay, I received this card weeks ago  Undecided

"I love how even though you have a poli-sci degree and no experience or training in psych you felt the need to tell our boss that I'm 'mean' to my clients. No, she didn't tell me it was you. I just knew"

received this quite a while ago...sorry for the slow post...

" I think that scrapbooking is a total waste of time and money, but the stickers are just too damn cute."
(in case you can't tell, those are 3-D scrapbooking stickers on the postcard)

received two today:

"In the morning while you're still asleep, I play with your morning wood. Your dreams must kick ass!"

sorry for the blurriness on this one...

"He told me I'm pretty...that I've always been pretty...then he hugged me."
the back: "This is a secret because both of us come from the same small town and if I told anyone we know that he said that I don't think they'd believe me."

Received three recently...

"I have a friend that cuts. I try to be supportive, but I complain behind her back about what an ATTENTION WHORE she is."

"Smoking is so...what's the word i'm looking for?" and the back says, "I wish I still smoked"

"I swear I still see you around town. I have nightmares ever since that day." Looks like he is wearing Virginia Tech stuff  Cry

Front says: "He's married. He has kids. And you're sleeping with him. You're a mistress. And I can't forgive that."

Back says: "He won't leave his wife for the sake of his kids. In ten years he'll leave her and you're willing to wait for him. Yet he spends all his free time screwing you, not with his kids. Where's the logic in that?"

Holy moley! I'm never the first to receive!
Here's the front:

It says, "I think Oprah has way too much influence over people's actions." It also has hidden in the picture, "think for yourself" and "why does everyone <3 her?"
the back:

Here's the awesome journal astarael sent me; it was well worth the wait for the long trip from Australia! Get ready for a picture overload (come on! she worked hard and deserves a real gallery!!  Grin)

She said it's decorated with joss papers (hope I spelled that right), which are burned for religious offerings to deities &/or ancestors in some Eastern religions.

the inside:

some of the pages are also joss papers:

she also made me a great bookmark with some Chinese or Japanese writing on it (I don't know which since I can't read either):

last but not least are three pens she sent in as a nice extra (sorry for the blurriness--stinkin camera phone!):

Thanks astarael--I really like the creative way you included my interests in this fab journal!

Here comes another AWESOME tea package. I actually got lilacprint's package yesterday, but it was ma-in-law's b-day so I only had enough time to rip everything open, oo, ah, and go...but here it is (get ready for a lotta pics):

First, everything together:

a tote she embroidered with a picture of a tea leaf:

some great cards with a teapot picture and one with a photograph of a sign on top of a building that says "TEA" (did you take that picture in your town??):

handmade journal AND bookmark...these are perfect for me because I'm currently organizing the Make Me a Journal swap and I ALWAYS want more journals!!! so thoughtful :

more thoughtfulness! she decorated a memory or tea box with one of my favorite pictures of me and hubby and little sayings around it about love and eternity and awesome stuff like that:

this is seriously the biggest box of tea I've probably ever seen! I had to put a CD in there for scale just so you guys can see how humongous this thing is!!:

last and definitely not least....lilacprint crocheted me an awesome teapot cozy to cover up my ugly tea kettle (modeled as such):

Thank you so much lilacprint--everything you made was so thoughtful!
(and did I mention she was sick as a dog for, like, half the crafting time?!)
