1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 30 GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by seeuudee on: November 13, 2019 12:40:43 PM
Had a very brief London visit today, due to a work thing, so Dani came along for the ride. I knew we had to walk past Buckingham Palace, so I knew we would at least get a pic of that, but also got a picture of an amazing building. You can't really see it in the photo brilliantly, but one of the road names is Pall Mall, which is one of the squares in Monopoly.  Grin

Quite intrigued by the concept of "collecting" all of the monopoly squares now  Roll Eyes

Dani came to work with me this week. I have had to drive this week - I usually take the train, but the lines have all been closed this week. This means a different walk in to the office, so saw a different view of the gorgeous city I work in.

Chichester is a Roman city, so was originally fully walled - quite a bit of it still remains.

It also has a stunning cathedral and the different walk gave a little snapshot view of it.

And this is my colleague, who is just starting off in his acting career, he has his own IMDB page and everything - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10100160/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1. This photo may be worth a fortune one day  Grin

We visited a Witch, Fairy and Hippy fair today, which was basically a craft fair with a theme, and they had arranged some workshops/talks you could attend. Managed to find a couple of Christmas presents (I think this is the earliest I have ever started!!) and we attended a workshop on using energies in healing - it was very interesting.

However, the best stall was definitely the fudge and the two ladies on the stall loved the idea of our little visitors and insisted Dani try some of their fudge Smiley

Dani has arrived in the UK safe and sound, but to horrendous weather - it has not stopped raining for more than an hour or so for what feels like weeks!

So, she helped me with some crafting for a facebook swap group I am in

She helped me feed my mum's chickens - I am looking after them while my mum is on holiday. I had a few days off, so had been feeding them once it got light, but was back to work today, so not only was it raining, it was also dark. The chickens seemed very confused by the time change Cheesy

The upside of looking after the chickens is getting to keep the eggs - we will need to do some baking soon to use some up Smiley

And lastly, Dani got to meet the resident loon, Hazel

Keeping my fingers crossed Peanut arrives soon  Huh

Questionnaire is on its way - Peanut, that came home with my LV from the last round I played, will be travelling this time.

His arms and legs are wired, so he can be posed Smiley

6  Re: Make Me A Rainbow swap GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by seeuudee on: September 26, 2019 11:03:44 AM
So many amazing packages - I am loving all the amazing rainbow-goodness in this gallery,

I actually opened my parcel Tuesday evening after I got home from Brownies, then got completely sidetracked and forgot to post the pictures!  Sad But now I am here to share the amazing package I received from ilovesnails - I actually squealed at one item and feel so very spoilt  Grin

First up some amazing stickers (not sure if the rhino is farting a rainbow or climbing over one  Shocked), a whole book of letters, a cute little cross stitch (which I have recently decided I need to get back into, so is the perfect project to start with!) and two adorable shrinkies

Next up 4 (yes, 4!!) balls of wool - two called scrubby, which I am looking forward to crocheting into dishclothes, the softest ball in a gorgeous colour way and the summer nights ball which is screaming out for a summer shawl. And a whole rainbow of beads! Already feeling spoilt by this package....

Then a rainbow and cloud, which is going next to my desk to remind me that without rain there can be no rainbows!

Then this stunning little pouch, which is beautiful and yet so sturdy

And last, the item that I squealed out load at - this gorgeous rainbow hoopla, which I just adore!

Thank you ilovesnails for an amazing package and craftylittlemonkey for organising us all  Kiss

Wow, so many amazing things shared already, such an brilliant start to the semester.

Been suffering from severe lack of crafting mojo recently, but the last few weeks have seen it starting to reappear, which feels good.

Class/Challenge: House Pride
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: What better to show off my Hufflepuff pride than using some bees to create a set of inchies. Plus "Y is for yellow" in the Alphabet challenge.

Class/Challenge: Headmistress Challenge - Spectrespecs Challenge
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: We were sorting some old garden stuff of my grandfather's and we found some old hanging baskets. They were covered in years of grime and cobwebs and were originally put in the dump pile as too far gone to save, but I decided to save them. There are some flowers in there, but they have been re-imagined to grow strawberries. We have a real problem with deer eating our strawberries, so this keeps some safe for us. Plus "W is for Water" in the Alphabet challenge, as hanging baskets require a lot of watering.

Class/Challenge: Floo - The Night Circus
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Going down the spontaneous route with this one, as I literally had a pile of stash and started cutting and sewing onto an old piece of denim. There was absolutely no plan and I kinda lost my way half way through, but so happy I kept going. Plus "Z is for zipper" in the Alphabet challenge.

So many amazing things in this gallery! Need to go back through and pin a few things Cheesy

My parcel from Rhinoceroses arrived at the weekend - I have finally managed to get the pictures transferred to the PC! I apologise in advance for the overload of pictures - this was such an amazing package to unwrap!

First up, everything was beautifully wrapped and the pretty card was painted by her daughter

First thing I opened up was a box (which was so pretty, but I didn't get a picture of the outside Sad) and it was packed full

In the box was some fabric, one with an embroidered initial (close up pic below), some creamy pralines (so good, they didn't last long!), some dog treats (more on those in a bit), some steampunk-y bits (which will soon find a home) and some bag hardware. And in the card were some sealed spoiler notes - such a clever idea.

And under all that, still in the box, was all this washi tape. I am not sure we had any conversations about washi tape (did we?) but I love it all - such fantastic colours.

Close ups of the fabric and a few of my favourite tapes - although it was hard to choose!!

Remember the dog treats - well one of them didn't last long at all. Hazel is a border collie and highly intelligent, so we do make her work for all treats. She had to do wait for this one, although it was really a little big to balance on her nose like we usually do Cheesy

Then I opened parcel number 2 and actually squealed - this bag is just amazing. What you can't see in the picture is the chain handle - this is going to work perfectly with my steampunk outfits - I have a pair of shoes in this colour! But is not too steampunk-y to not use for other outings.

And then finally, the last parcel. I have to admit to being slightly confused when I first opened it, but on reading the spoiler note, it all made sense. It starts off looking like a golden snitch, which is amazing in itself...

But then it all opens out to create a reusable bag and the bag fabric is made from marauder map bandanas and tightens with a ribbon - I love it so much!

Thank you so much Rhinoceroses for such a fantastic swap and thank you BBM for organising us all.
