I received from crescentfresh yesterday! ... delayed a bit due to Canada Post once again, sigh.

One of the items I mentioned needing in my list was something I could hang on the wall to organize my hair sticks and hair clips. She came through wonderfully with this beautiful organizer:

Please forgive the wrinkles it incurred in shipping, my iron got gunked up in an interfacing mishap and I need a new one.

Here's a picture of it holding some of my hairtoys:

Crescentfresh also sent this amazing batik tree painting!

It's absolutey beautiful, Im going to find a frame for it this weekend. I can't believe she made this by hand!

And finally, I received a hand-drawn bookmark with a pencil made from a twig, and  notecard with a letter written in it (that crescentfresh had received in another swap).

Thank you so much crescentfresh and thanks to the mods and other participants for a great swap!

2  Some summery wooden beaded jewelery in Beads: Completed Projects by geek_goddess on: April 19, 2009 03:40:42 PM
Just some beaded bracelets I made over the weekend.
All are made on elastic cord, I have a thing about feeling choked by jewelery.

Ceramic and wooden beads (this is 2 necklaces meant to be worn layered):

Wooden beads in brown and blue... not sure why but I love that combo:

Wood and bone beaded bracelets.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks guys!

The felted beads are hard to photograph properly, they are a mix of mossy greens and brown, made from a chunky 100% wool yarn and hand rolled. You can make a felted bead from any wool yarn, it just takes more patience than with loose wool.

The hat is from a pattern called Meret, available free here:
It is much easier than it seems to be, the pattern is a lot of fun.
It is knitted in 100% wool.

The dolly was very hard to part with, I took a whole day making her by hand and she is just precious. She has jointed arms and legs so she is posable and wears tiny little bloomers and flowered slippers on as well but they are hard to see.

I'm glad you liked everything crescentfresh, I can't wait to receive your package!

I received from Pogo today... my last Dotee. Aww Sad

Pogo made me this creepy zombie lady in a pink leopard print straightjacket! She's so cute.

Thanks Pogo!

Here's a group shot of the dotees I received this round:

And these are the ones I sent!

Great swap guys, it was fun!

I came home from a few days at my boyfriend's house and had 3 dotees waiting to be opened!

First from phnxreign99, a lovely pink dotee with beads:

From Kmac, an adorable hatching snakebaby dotee:

Is it just me or does Boris look a little protective of this guy:

And from helenheels a cute little polka-dotted monster with a striped face and a tail:

Thank you guys so much, I love them all!

I received from KittyVanGhoul yesterday, fantastic package!
I came home to find my swap package, an order from Chagrin Valley Soap, and my Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab perfumes had all arrived on the same day! It was like christmas.

Anyways, this is the adorable pink pouch it all came in, and a cute ruffled satin pin with a skull button on it- which was relocated to my studded denim jacket shortly after the photos:

All the goodies inside! 2 clip-on bows with skull bead centres which I love! I'm constantly cutting a fringe then deciding to grow it out, so these are perfect for holding it back.
2 Hair sticks with dangly rhinestone studded hearts and tiny skull beads, these are awesome! Perfect length for me (so many are way too long) and really cute. I've been working on the art of harstick-using and can securely get my hair all up with one of them now.

And since I'm a lazy butt with no makeup on today, I present action shots of my Bulbasaur bearded dragon Zelda wearing a bow.
She's considering it.....

She likes it! Look at that smile.

I promise action shots (on myself) within the week. Thanks so much for the amazing package Kitty, I love it all to pieces! Feel free to share your pictures of it too, you're a much better photographer than I  Wink

7  Felt flower pincuishon in Completed Projects by geek_goddess on: April 08, 2008 08:52:56 PM
I've been using a rolled-up sock as a pincushion forever, it was time to actually make one. It's just a simple little squishy felt flower, but I like it.

8  New Taper Case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by geek_goddess on: December 16, 2007 03:16:30 PM
I'm currently stretching my earlobes, and got tired of fiddling with a zillion little ziplock bags and constantly losing tapers, so I made this!

And a picture of it closed.

It's not perfect as I used a thick upholstery brocade scrap and it was hard to get it perfectly flat without being able to iron it (it melts) but I think the end result is pretty cute.

9  Help me identify these mystery presser feet please (img included) in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by geek_goddess on: November 24, 2007 07:51:09 PM
With my machine I received 8 presser feet. Unfortunately I have no manual and can't bring one up online for this model (it is 10 or so years old).
If anyone can educate me on the purpose of any of these feet and how to use them, I would be very grateful.
Thanks for looking.

10  Cord Pants to skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by geek_goddess on: November 18, 2007 10:54:17 PM
So I had these burgandy  cords that were wayyy too small.

So I cut the legs off, sliced them up and sewed them into the side seam of the pants.
2 DVDs later I had this wicked skirt.

The finished product being worn:
