Great photo dump Smeddley!  Everything looks lovely. 

The wire wrapped goodies are gorgeous. 

I made my second Kumihimo braided bracelet using some cord I ordered. 



Next I am going to try doing a beaded one.

I need feedback from something so I can hop in and claim for 105! 

Whoops, this is what happens when folks post in the gallery and don't PM the organizer... She sees the post and it goes right in one ear and out the other. Totally forgotten when she is going through PM's later to update the claims list. Sorry Lindy, I'll get you some feedback tonight.

I hadn't received my last claim as of yesterday so I was really just complaining that I was still full up rather than hinting... but thanks for the feedback and I just happened to receive my last claim from anna.wahnsinn yesterday....

She claimed me for jewelry and sent the most gorgeous necklace.  I am assuming this is some sort of bead weaving??  Anyway I love it!  Thank you so much

Marty helped the kids with their Fathers Day painting projects yesterday.  There may be a few moose prints on the picture frames they painted!

414  Sew Sweet Altered Spool in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lindyv321 on: June 09, 2014 10:27:55 AM
I made this altered spool for quaggy in the altered spool swap.  I chose to go with her sewing theme and I knew I was going to make a little shrine for her.  I had quite a few bits and bobs lying around in my stash but no spools!  So I drew out what I wanted to do and ordered a few things. 

I wanted a vintage feel and so I didn't paint the shrine just put in some paper for the background.  I used washi tape and bakers twine to make the bunting.  I had the mini spools in my stash and just wrapped them in thread.  I was also able to find that wee needle hiding out in some lace.  Lucky find since it was the perfect size!  I went back and forth with a few ideas on what to do with the spools.  In the end I decided on washi tape.


Here is a picture of the top/sides of the shrine.  It has some vintage measuring tape wrapped around it.


I hope that quaggy was happy with her spool shrine.

Love your coffee nook alwaysinmyroom! 

Can I just snag that turtle carving to come live with me???  Love it!

I made two Mer people for the Mer Folk Swap hosted by Retro Cafe Art Gallery.  Rather than my usual method of altering stuff I used no paper just paint!  My sweets bought me these really neat paints a while back and I am very pleased with them.  I especially love the merman's tail.  I am not sure if I want to add anything else to the tails cause they seem a bit plain to me.  I think I will have to just keep looking at them and decide...


I also made some Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread


I got the recipe from Pinterest

I also made some delish shredded beef tacos in the crock pot yesterday but no photo was taken.   Here is the recipe if anyone wants it though.

417  Lots of Note Cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by lindyv321 on: June 06, 2014 03:45:49 PM
One of my goals this year was to get more familiar with my Silhouette Cameo considering the amount of money I spent on it.  I thought I would be able to plug it on in and just start creating.  Well things of course didn't work out that way... I think that after two years this is one of my more successful projects using it.

I made a variety of different note cards for a few different swaps I have been in recently.

A pretty bird


A peacock


Mama and baby fox


And a whale, some geometric designs, and a leaf

418  Caffeine Makes Me Normal in Needlework: Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: June 06, 2014 03:24:30 PM
I made this hoop for alwaysinmyroom in the Ongoing Wish Swap.  I bought the pattern from ActsofCraftiness' Etsy shop  It started as a cross stitch pattern but I just traced it an embroidered it since I don't cross stitch much.  I tried using the stem stitch on the words but looking at it now I don't like it and will probably go back to using the back stitch for letters and such.

I claimed alwaysinmyroom for a package in the Ongoing Wish Swap and since she has received I can post what I made her.  I claimed her for note cards and a surprise.

Here are the note cards.  I made two of each design with my Silhouette Cameo


I also sent this hoopla along as the surprise.  Please ignore my washing machine!  I have good lighting in my laundry room...

I received this very unique altered spool from quaggy.  I just love it and never would have thought to do something like this!  It's embroidered and beaded and just wonderful.  Also rather than being just for decoration, it has a purpose as a candle holder!



Thank you so much!  I hope you like yours as much as I like mine.
