1  Re: Ongoing Teesha Moore Patch Swap Round 1 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Sandroo on: July 20, 2012 07:56:57 PM
I received from Kookaloo_Starr and figured out how to take good pics with my lil' camera.  So here they are:  One for my love of Whedonverse, the other inspired by Victorian clothing.

Two by two, hands of blue.  One of the creepiest nursery rhymes ever.

And a lovely corset.  I wish the colors had come out a bit truer, but what can you do?

I received from fancybutch today - and boy, is it purty!  She chose my theme of Greek Mythology - and chose one of my fave myths, that of Arachne, the weaver whose work surpassed even that of Athena's.

The wording and the weaving are done in a rainbow metallic thread.  I love it!!  Thanks, Robin!

I love spending/wasting time on pinterest!  So many wonderful ideas, so little time.  One of my first inspirations was this lil' cartoon: http://pinterest.com/pin/247557310736582256/

I decided I was going to do it as an embroidered triptych (I hope I'm spelling that correctly, lol)

So, here they are!:

Wear cape:


Sorry for the muddy pics - my kids seem to have messed with my camera settings.

I received a few days ago from Beth 8144 and could not  post due to lost camera cord.  But I found it, and here are the goodies!!

First, a group shot:

A lovely needle book featuring a favorite quote:

5  Re: Scrap Happy Patchwork Swap GALLERY: send by 11/30 in The Swap Gallery by Sandroo on: December 03, 2011 03:27:01 PM
I received from love2teach this morning.  I have to say I'm in love with the colors and fabrics she chose - I have this love affair with corduroy, and I really can't explain it.  Some of the black patches are cord, and so very very soft!

the potholder and the extra she sent - a lovely crocheted bag - crocheted in the tiniest stitches!  I can't imagine the patience it takes to crochet something so intricate!

And, the scrappy side of the potholder, with the bag in it's own little pocket!!!

Although kinda stressful at first, once I figured out how to make it work for me, this swap was a blast!  Hope she likes what I sent out!!

As amalgam has asked me to post a pic of what I'd sent to her, I present to you:  my first button tree!  Bright colors, and fun buttons, and even some bumblebees, buzzing around the button flowesr!!

I hope you have a better pic, amalgam, cuz it's been raining here for a week!!

I received from amalgam a few days ago, and am in LOVE.  the stitching is so tiny and precise, and it's all done in metallic thread!!!  So, straight from my wists, I give you:

Now, she didn't send it like it appears.  Apparently the hoop broke in transit, and i didn't have a hoop the same size as she used, so Ihad to do some emergency surgery.  However, even DH was impressed with the stitching, so that's got to tell ya'll something!  Thank you so much, AMALGAM!!!

I received from OllieOrange the other day and am stoked to show off!!!


Some tiny puppets of the gang, a few true blood charms (which will become earrings VERY shortly here. . . ), a Lafayette bookmark, hookers!! and a funny little sticky notepad of happy fangs!!

Now, on to the:

Merlotte's shirt and silk painted scarf!  The dye job on the scarf was her first, and inspired by the boiling blood in the credits.  I LOVE IT!!

And just for kicks, a detail shot:

See how pretty??  Thanks, Cindy!!
