241  Re: Hoopla A-Long 2013-2014 in Needlework: Stitchalongs by pottermouth on: October 09, 2014 11:27:01 AM
My swap partner received her hoopla, so now I can appropriately share it.





Lindy, you'd be so proud of me...I actually used my Silhouette for the pattern. The quote is in the online shop and I printed it out to use as a pattern. Only 4,997 more Silhouette projects to do before the cost is justified. Yay!

242  Lil' Witch altered block in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: October 07, 2014 06:33:25 PM
rackycoo gave me some blank blocks some time ago, and I got around to altering one of the bitty ones this afternoon. It is around 1" x 1 3/4".





I gained access to the teenager's room (scary!) and found a beetle while cleaning the window.

Ms. Jennie! (may I call you that?) This is gorgeous! I wish I could have seen pottermouth's face when she opened this up. You are awesome.

My face? It sort of looked like this:



But without the beard.

What a most fantastic day! Not only did I receive the upper echelon of all HP swap packages, I also get to share first. This is going to be a looong post, so grab a drink and be blown away. Please post your photos Mistress Jennie; mine do no justice!

Upon opening the box of pure joy, I saw that Mistress Jennie takes great care in packaging her items. Just seeing the wrapping made me feel special! Everything was color coordinated and carefully thought out.



First came some UK goodies (Jammie Dodgers are the best thing in the world. They are all gone now) as well as a super cool Mad Eye Moody dish cloth! This has to be an original because I've never seen one. Jennie made apple cider jelly that is currently in the fridge waiting for some crusty bread, or crackers, or maybe just a spoon!



Next came a Ravenclaw bookmark for my House and a flying Ford Anglia bookmark for my favorite magical object! I happened to be the recipient of one of her bookmarks a while ago, and I am thrilled to have two more. I love them. Then there were two bracelets, one Patronus themed and one Favorite Creature themed. My Patronus (don't laugh) is a lawn gnome and centaurs are so exciting! So, at this point I was a bit swoony because all these brilliant items were labeled as extras. EXTRAS! Ahhhhhh! More about the Patronus bracelet later.




A centaur charm! That's unbelievable.


I took a break here in the opening process because it was so fantastic that I wanted to drag it out. That lasted about 10 seconds. These next items were the required small, medium, and large, as if the previous bounty hadn't been wholly acceptable as a swap package. It was one squee worthy item after another! And I never squee. Oh! On to the fantastical-ness! For the small, or medium, came the most beautifully crafted dream catcher based off my fave character, Dumbledore. Jennie's work is flawless. Divine!





Still more! She spoilt me so. The medium was (hold on!!!) a Sorcerer's Companion charm bracelet. That's right. I now own a coveted Mistress Jennie piece. The Sorcerer's Companion, for those who may not know, is an excellent reference guide for all things magical. Jennie masterfully crafted a bracelet with several topics from the book, like a phoenix, a rune, a hand for Palmistry, and even a wee potion bottle and cauldron! It is simply amazing.

Some of the other charms are a gryffin, gnome, owl, mermaid, shooting star for Astrology, cat (McGonagall!), fairy, book of charms, unicorn, broom, and dragon. eeee.







And then came the large. As if my heart hadn't already stopped from pure joy. Oh, sweet pumpkin pasties....it is a frikkin' History of Magic ART QUILT!!!  Shocked It is huge! One side is all bookish, because us Ravenclaws never remove our noses from books, and the other boasts the Deathly Hallows. The stitching is impeccable, just like everything Jennie creates. I was pretty must toast after opening that, and I don't remember any more of the day.





Remember I mentioned the Patronus bracelet earlier? Well, guess what it does (besides exude awesomeness)?
Ta-Da!



How can I thank you, Mistress Jennie? You covered my questionnaire completely, crafted exquisite items, and sent a wonderfully thoughtful note. You are one in a million.  Kiss

246  Interactive Altered Tin of Snark in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: September 15, 2014 09:07:58 PM
The Queen of Snark hosted a Snarky Housewives Swap and this is what I came up with for my wonderful partner, thisbirdsabsurd.



There is a dial on the side that rotates the snarkism inside the frame. Here's what they say:

another day in paradise
she couldn't remember...was it one teaspoon of arsenic or two?
I believe the word you are searching for is "divine"
why yes, I am overqualified



And the back, which try as I might, I absolutely could not make a dial that both rotated and covered that exposed area of the frame. There is also a button over the brad, but if you want to see that (and all of the brilliant things in the gallery so far), you gotta go HERE. Make yourself a drink first. All the recipes you need are in HERE and HERE

Okay folks, here it is. The greatest snarky item ever!!! (forgive the photos, of course it is dark and rainy.)



YES! thisbirdsabsurd crafted another awesome free motion embroidery piece, and this one is all mine. What is it you ask?



An art pillow!!! I love her face and her witticism rings true with me. Look at her bottle:



What an awesome piece. Thank you, thisbird...you are a genius.

Side view


And back! I couldn't help but notice it is headstone shaped, and that made me think I drink too much. It was a quick thought, but I'm over that now.


Thanks again!

Love those flytrap prints!

Guess what? HSG sent me a huge box of the most amazing things! She says in her note that she" decided not to make any Harry Potter items, but that went out the window" and THIS is what I opened:



Am I so lucky she changed her mind. I'll have add a picture of the detail; it's beautiful work.

She then made this gorgeous necklace! It's my favorite shape, and you didn't even know that! Did I mention that it is gorgeous?



And if that wasn't enough, she made TWO, count 'em, TWO unbelievable mosaics. Her craftswomanship is impeccable. The first one she made is the T.A.R.D.I.S. in a Mondrian style (Piet happens to be in my top two for fave dead artists). She didn't know that, either.



SO COOL!

The second one was a total surprise, but I think I love it the most. HSG simply put "Bee Happy" in part of the note, and the mosaic will live in my kitchen as a reminder to do just that.





Thank you for the great swap, HSG! I'm so happy you said yes.  Grin

Happy that it arrived in one piece. Those mail handlers have a completely different definition of FRAGILE.

Here's the arsenic image in the frame:



The paper tablecloth was folded over the base and got a generous slathering of Mod Podge. It was perfect paper for the project. Thanks for taking me to that cute shop, racky!

250  Vintage Housewife hoop in Needlework: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: August 16, 2014 01:40:45 PM
A quick little hoop for kittykill's Hoopla A-Long. The theme for this month is whimsical, nonsense, or free-range stitching so I went a little silly. Sewed a tiny vintage-y apron and stitched my quote on a dish towel.
