1  Re: ONGOING ATC SWAP- MAY 2019 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by anna.wahnsinn on: May 22, 2019 05:43:47 AM
Great cards! I have one to add too, my first one just arrived from curiousfae (also with a pretty notecard she got from geekgirl), the theme is Agate.



Isn't it beautiful? I love it!



Also included was a fortune teller fish, I haven't had one in years. Decades. Can't wait to show my little ones and read our fortunes. Mine reads passionate it curled up and rolled off my palm. Cheesy

Thank you so much Kelli!

Oooh yes, PB, your workshop was amazing! While I was looking at a little sloth for the longest time I kept working on it later and was pretty happy with the final result.



And shhhh, dont tell because animals were forbidden in the house, but we took him upstairs later

In other news I think my pocket letter got lost in the mail, so I'll just go on now and post a few pictures. That was my first one, and I had so much fun putting it together, I think I'll just try to make another one and send it out when I'm in Maryland next week. Much shorter way to travel!

Anyway here's the front:


Back side


And a few favourites





I find this is kind of a neverending task though, because whenever I was happy with it and thought I was done I thought of another scene, or another image, and wanted to incorporate that too.

Maybe it will even still turn up, I've seen books and parcels take six weeks...

4  Re: Craft with a Fat Quarter Swap Round 4 - Gallery in The Swap Gallery by anna.wahnsinn on: April 03, 2019 12:50:00 PM
How could I not love everything?

This is what I pulled out of the envelope:



Perfect colors, perfect items! Counter clockwise:

The two loveliest fat quarters: perfect colors, and such pretty batics!

The cutest little purple/indigo needlebook/organizer I'll use for beading needles, it also has a pocket for embroidery scissors or a needle threader thingy. Lined in teal, velcro.

A lovely teal/indigo wallet/pouch: One pocket, flat, very sturdy. Velcro.

Another, bigger, purple needlebook with a button closure. Adorable button in the most awesome emerald/teal shade!

A pretty large zipper pouch in purple/indigo, squarish. Additional nifty tab with ring and hook.

See? Happy me!

Open items:

(color is way off here! much more blueish/purple really, the felt inserts are purple, not brown.)


BUT did you notice the zipper pouch was a little bulky, while everything else was so perfectly flat? Here's why:



A gorgeous soft cuff with lots of buttons, the cutest little wallet (sturdy, like the big one), and a soft and comfy lanyard!

Look at those buttons:


Actually you'd have to see them in person, so much shimmering I just can't catch. I'll try tomorrow! Also the cuff is adjustable. I can wear it with the elastic on the first button, or more snug going over some more:



The pattern remins me of beads (of course) and of bubbles. Soap bubbles. So much fun! And the more I look at it of grapes too, so I keep thinking the cuff for example would go awfully well with a hand holding a nice glass of Merlot. Needlebooks look very pretty lying next to glasses, too...

This is such a great collection of useful as well as beautiful items in absolutely gorgeous colors. I'll happily carry those things around with me! I may have to part with the wallets both of my daughters were very very interested, to put it mildly. We will see. Have to come up with a good use for them by tomorrow morning. "It's all mine" didn't go over all that well Wink

Zoe, thank you so so much, I love my fat quarter package!

No early morning yoga for me either.


I love the avatar I've got on my profile just now!

Having sent out one swap package yesterday I'm taking looong breaths today, trying to wind down and sorting out what needs to be done when, what I want to do, and how to fit that together, along with family & job. So business as usual.

One lovely thing today was that my package from thanate arrived, and it held a lovely purple jersey scarf and some cute machine embroidered pieces!

The scarf is so comfortable and cozy, see:


(won't let me edit my picture to turn around properly, sorry!)

And these are the embroidered pieces: two leaf or feather shapes, and two ornaments that look like they want to be turned into earrings!



Thank you very very much for a lovely package thanate!

I'm wearing the scarf like this now:



I really like the look! But I have to admit I've been twiddling around with the tassles so much that one came off, and then there were some fisticuffs over who'd get the cute little jellyfish... Now we all three have one each, and I get to wear my scarf undisputedly.

How many times have the children done that to me? Ugh.
Skulls drawn & cut out of cardboard. Quick & easy Smiley.

Duh, cardboard! Why was I thinking Fimo?! Cardboard sounds good. And is grey, so very good. Maybe even grey felt if I have it, that would work so well with fabric glue. A no-sew-costume for once?

The "skirt" part has her approval so far, so I'm happy! This was extremely easy indeed, I just didn't think she'd accept it as it is so floppy.

Rainbows and unicorns galore, oh my! The cute card curiousfae sent to me would have fit right in, I may need to hunt it down to take a picture. I think I missed that, but the card has been claimed already just as the holo tag from the crafted item you'll see in a minute.

This is everything with all the lovely purple packages (with silver glitter in the paper, so pretty!)

I tried to get everything into one shot, but then nothing would be recognizable. So you'll just have to look at a whole bunch of pictures. Better look at the yummy goodies: tasty chocolate and cereals, sadly all gone by now.


Gifts for hubby and girls: A MSU Spartans beer can cooler (which holds the stubby beer bottles really well, too!) and the cutest crochet crowns:



And the supplies: lovely toho seed beads in my favourite colours and a nifty little box which is great for putting a little selection of tiny things into my project bag and fabric squares in black & white, but they won't come until the last picture. I'll explain.


My crafted item: Curiousfae crocheted a shawl/scarf for me from the most beautiful yarn ever! The colours are so vibrant they're almost iridescent. Here it is:

Isn't it gorgeous? And absolutely my colours. It is darker really, too. Now I just need a few pointers on how to wear a triangular thing. So far I've just thrown it on my back with the ends dangling over the shoulders so I can play with the tassles. So soft!

This is the only picture that turned out with the colours nearly perfect, just not showing enough of that awesome purple. But then there are the pretty fabric squares. You can't have everything at least not in one picture.


Kelli, you did spoil us so much! Thank you!!!

Riechan made some fantastic twinchies and inchies for me, and was kind enough to include some origami stars as well (the puffy ones that I've always wanted ever since I saw them!). I love the whole bunch!



I did not take pictures during unwrapping, but had my girls watching. Big mistake. It seems at least one is as much in love with the tiny art as I am. I know there are two polkadot paintings missing, the big brother of the little one shown, and another twinchie one, an earlier version I think. So this is just the reduced amount.

My two absolute favourites (still with me!) and their inspirations:

Terry Pratchett


Calvin & Hobbes (very me, right now for example, turquoise and gold)


And I've started my star collection right away, time to try to make these myself finally! I hope I'll need a bigger jar some day:


Also please look at those lines, so impressive!


Thank you so much Riechan, I'll try to post the rest as soon as I get my hands on them again!
