I'm so sorry I took so long to post these! I got my awesome package from CamOovas and have taken forever to post pictures!
I know she posted a couple but here's the rest of the loot-

The pages of the notebook are all different, I love it!

Here's the stitch markers again, there're incredibly well made, and I love the colors

I recently decided to become vegetarian, so she sent me some good info and recipes

the seriously cool dreadlocks, my hair is just barely too short to wear it as a ponytail right now, but I think I'll figure something out

This is a wire wrapped marble on a necklace that just amazes me, I have no idea how you can even do that! Hah, and you can see my camera in the refection

And one last look at everything all together -

Thank you CamOovas!!!!!

3  Quilt block holder carrier... thing in Completed Projects by Mysterious on: September 10, 2008 11:03:13 AM
So, I made this for my Mom for her birthday back in february, but never got around to posting it.  She was looking online at a pattern for something like this, to carry these really cool animal appliqué blocks she's been taking a class on. I saw the pic, and thought, hey I could probably do that! So, I cut up a giant frosted flakes box into two squares, covered them in felt (for padding), cut two big rectangles of purple fabric, sewed elastic, vinyl, and four rectangles of felt to the one going in the middle, handles and a velcro closure to the one going on the outside, sewed the rectangles together, with the frosted flakes inside, and BOOM! Its done. Grin

Here's the outside when its closed

A close up of the handle and closure

Here's a not so great pic of it laying open, (oh yeah, that on the right is one of the blocks, not sewn together yet. I gotta check if I can put pics of her finished animal blocks up here, 'cause they're seriously awesome!)

This is that left side, the white stuff is elastic to hold her spools of thread. I was also originally going to put a pocket or something to the right of that, but I think I ran out of fabric. (or was it time? I finished this like the day before her birthday)

On the other side, it has a clear vinyl pocket to put her papers, or whatever else she wants.

So yeah, she said she loved it(she is my mom), and I think it came out good. Some of the sewing was a little sloppy, but I think if I had more time I would have done it better (maybe).

So, what do you think?

Well today I received from our all powerfull organizer DesignVigilante, who was nice enough to send me a third package. Grin

First off here's everything-

Here's what I see first, So of course I put it on

Then I find this cool, purple scarf and put it on. But wait, there's more - another awesome hat! (that matches the scarf Grin)(and isn't my face just awesome?)

and a close up of the hat-

So then moving on, I find some of her fav stuff - Chocolate drink mix, tootsie roll box with emercency chocolate, a bandana, and you guessed it - mustard! Cheesy

And she having gone to Vegas recently, she got me a couple postcards, and a little more local (I'm assuming anyway) some trader joes chocolate! (there were also a few of the most addicting peanut butter cups ever that somehow didn't make it into the pics Grin)

And then I see this cool box-

Which is cool enough as it is, but check out what was in it-

The yellow paper says " Knitting Survival Kit! Everything but the needles Smiley"
and includes a little bit of yarn, sisscors, a tape measure, yarn needle, safety pins, a row counter, two stitch markers, and a pencil with a pad of paper.

And thats it! Oh wait - theres also a little lolly pop wand that only made it in to the first pic - its on the left on top of the bandana, it  broke a little in the mail but I'm sure its still good  Smiley

Thank you so much Diana!

Okay so I received my second package from Craftykaida forever ago, and am just now getting around to posting pics! I'm so sorry Alexis!

Anyway, here's all the stuff together

I got this awesome bag with compass star/map designs on it, and lined with turquoise, a shrinky dink kit, a cool little booklet on backpacking through Europe, and a small booklet of knitting patterns, her letter, a grow your own pirate with activity book, and last but not least, a magical creature origami kit.

a horribly blurry pic of one of the pages in the backpacking book,

and of course, an action shot of the bag filled with my knitting Grin Thank you Alexis!

Also a couple pic of what I sent, since they never got posted-

Package 1
Stationery stuff, small stuff,
about me stuff, and postcards.

Package 2
Box I painted, the inside lined with starburst wrappers,
flip flops I created new straps for, and a polymer clay kit that was inside the box.

And I didn't get good pic of the last package, but it had a dress, a box collaged with photos from package 1, some shrinky dinks, and a macramé bracelet.

I hope you liked everything!

6  Re: What's REALLY the best way to make 300 half-square triangles? in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by Mysterious on: April 02, 2008 12:23:34 AM
I don't know if you've already started this, but here's a way to make 8 HSTs at once-

Cut a square twice the size you want your finished HSTs to be plus 1 3/4 ins, of each fabric. i.e. if you want 4 inch finished HSTs, you'd cut 9 3/4 inch squares.
Then draw a straight line across each corner, as shown.

Sew a 1/4 inch on each side of the lines (those red lines),
and cut as shown below.

Press, and trim dog ears.
and now you should have eight HSTs!

you can also, extend the 1 3/4 ins to 2 ins, so that if your sewing isn't perfect you can trim to the size you need.

I hope this made sense, its late here and I'm a little sick, so if you have any questions please ask!

Yay! I received from craftykaida yesterday! Grin

Here's all the loot together-

The letter and postcards-(photo looks a little weird Tongue)

She plants flowers with her mom every year, so she sent me a bunch of flower seeds too-

The stationary, I love the dot ones!(kinda hard to see)-

Her favorite candy(yumm Smiley )-

A coloring book(she love to color) and Emily the Strange comic(I had to put them together for the picture Grin)-

Other little stuff- colored pencils for the coloring book, one of her favorite books Autobiography of a face, box of Hello Kitty band-aids(she loves hello kitty), stickers, rubber duckies, and a beading kit-

A keychain from Chesapeake Bay (with sand inside Smiley ), and some cool pins(she collects them) where do you find them? I think they're cool but never see them anywhere. Huh-

the Music=Life is my favorite Grin I'm also curious- whats The Soundtrack?

She also sent a disposable camera that she couldn't get developed in time, and had a couple pictures left, that I forgot to get in the pictures.

Thanks craftykaida!!! Now on to package #2!

8  Kirby Hat (kinda big pics) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Mysterious on: January 15, 2008 02:36:55 PM
So, I came up with the idea to knit my brother a kirby hat, now this idea only came to me like 3 or 4 days before Christmas (of course Tongue). And we were going to see family most of Christmas eve, so I made this in about 2 days. Its improvised, and I think it turned out pretty good.

Anyway, onto the pics-

here's the front-

closer up of the face-

and its feet Grin

Its supposed to look like its holding on to the persons head, but I'm not sure how well that worked, oh well.

Please tell me what you think!

9  Hogwarts crest hoodie in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Mysterious on: December 09, 2007 06:19:08 PM
My first topic! I hope it works. anyway I looked through some tutorials for hoodies on here but I really just made this up as I went (which is pretty much how I do everything Grin). no before pics but you can see it on http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/store/product.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302028399&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442162079&bmUID=1197251481703
on the hot topic web site if you really want to, it was just a t-shirt with the Hogwarts crest. But I kinda needed a hoodie so I added on sleeves, put in a zipper, put on the hood, and and did the edge parts, and got this! I'm pretty quiet on here and haven't got my 10 posts yet so heres the links

and an action shot,

I still need to fix part of the sleeves (can't yet, because I used up the last of my black thread on this) and I kinda want to put in a lining, 'cause its not really that warm, but either way I still love it.
Please tell me what you think!
