I received my final thank you! Suwalo sent me three knitting/crochet needle cases. I absolutely love the fabric! I think the cheshire cat one is my favorite, but I'm already working on putting them all to good use. Thank you for the wonderful swap, to the mods, to my partners, and to everyone else in the swap!

I try not to use the word epic lightly, but this must be my most epic post on Craftster to date -- and it's just showing off other craftster's work! I expect several break-ins this week from jealous zombie lovers who see this post.

I received from cursive_queen. We had a few discussions over what she would send and she said she'd get her boyfriend to draw me something. Never would I have expected it to be something so awesome and incredible and perfectly me. She had better watch out, I have her address and I'm going to come chain him up and make him draw and draw and draw. Wink

And if that wasn't enough to spoil me for the rest of my days, I also finally took a picture of the art the wonderful, lovely, amazingly talented sheepblue sent me. We did a personal swap along the giver/needer lines, so I figured it would be appropriate to post her thank you gift here. Hers was a lot harder to take a picture of because it's already mounted on the wall so I had more difficulty steadying the camera. Anyway, no picture, no matter how focused, could do the actual piece justice.

Thanks so much guys!

I received my round 3, but I still haven't posted pictures of my round 2! My partner included a totally awesome postcard you can see the image below, which I promptly filed away somewhere. Roll Eyes Speak up, wonderful partner, I have forgotten your name. Undecided

And a close-up of the charms:

Thank you, I love all things chemistry and the skeleton key is marvelous!

Pictures of my lovely round 3 piece to come soon!

Oooh silhouette cross stitch! I stitched one in the same style, a spinning wheel, and I love it.

I received my thank you from icebyrd long ago, a supply I am always happy to collect -- fiber!

My partner picked up on my not-so-subtle love of fiber, and sent me a wonderfully useful and awesome package. It's a good amount of fiber, and I'm excited to see how the black and white spins up. Do you know what the fiber content is, icebyrd?

My round 1 partner had to drop out Cry I never, ever take pictures of my swap packages because I'm super lazy. This time, however, I loved my package so much that I pulled out my camera before sending, possibly for the first time ever. Good thing, too! So here is what I sent in my round 1 package:

She had a specific version of Link's Adventures listed (Link to the Past), so I did a bunch of research to make sure I was stitching the proper Link. I hope I wound up getting it right! I sent it in a little frame that allowed space between my stitching and the glass. I usually just leave the glass off stitched stuff that I keep, but I wanted something a bit more formal since I was sending it off to a new home.

I received yesterday from Seaside Muses! It was especially awesome because I picked up the package as I went out the door to the T (our local subway system), and they were all out of newspapers! Since I normally sit and do the crossword on the train, it was nice to have a package of kindness to open instead. Smiley

She sent me a lined notebook with a symbol on it that I love. It's a pretty depiction of the Tree of Gondor, which is on my wishlist, original from this post on Craftster. She also sent me a couple polyhedral dice which are quite likely to be used at my next D&D game. Smiley Thanks Seaside Muses!

17  Copycat Kitty Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SciFunk on: March 30, 2011 02:22:14 PM
Someone in the Random Act of Kindness swap received an adorable cat tote as an extra her package. I had to have one, and immediately thought how easy it would be to make. One  tote bag, one black fabric marker, and one small container of brown fabric paint later...

I think the tail on the back really makes it. Smiley The original is in the RAK swap gallery, but it's pretty much the same thing on a yellow tote and a bit neater (I believe it was store bought, so the cat details are machine printed). I made it yesterday afternoon and brought it to crochet lessons I was teaching that evening. It makes me smile every time I see it.

18  Re: Random Act Of Kindness Swap Sign Up CLOSED Final Send Out By 04/23/11 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by SciFunk on: March 21, 2011 10:15:33 AM
Success! Perfect finishing touch found, and my first goodie is all ready to send. I have to package it up so it safely makes it through the mail, which is always a bit of a challenge for me. Here is a seriously post-processed teaser picture:

Is it yours?! I'm not telling! Wink

19  Two Bracelet/Earring Sets in Beads: Completed Projects by SciFunk on: February 09, 2011 09:47:19 PM
This is a procrastinated post of procrastinated Christmas presents. Most of my family received two boxes in the mail from me this year -- one of bought gifts (on time) and a second box with one or two handmade things. The handmade boxes were only sent a week or two ago, and I still have another one to go.

These sets were for my Aunt. She's the only person who asks for jewelry, so I usually only make jewelry when I make presents for her. Sadly, the box was badly crushed in the mail and arrived with its contents falling out. Apparently one set of earrings was missing and one of the bracelets was broken, so I'm glad I took pictures beforehand.

I'm very happy with how they came out. I haven't done off-loom bead weaving before, but it was a lot of fun and I love the results. The patterns are from the free section of http://bead-patterns.com/, and they were very easy to follow.

If any experienced beadweavers have some awesome tips to share, I'd love to hear them!

I love that yarn DesignVigilante!

I received my fabric napkins from MommytheMaid yesterday. I was expecting one Christmas set and one Thanksgiving set, but she sent me two Thanksgiving and three Christmas! The green and white snowflakes are so perfect for me, they're definitely my favorite.

Thanks MtM!
