My package from Selkie has arrived!  There's been the usual few days delay as I charge camera batteries, find cables, and generally get my caboose together, but here goes...

Three lovely cloths... two are already in use, wrapped around my tarot cards

A knitted and felted bag which will be used to store wonderful things

The most MAGNIFICENT reading cloth/altar cloth - feet included for scale.  I love this so much

The reverse is luscious black velvet.  I do readings via email, and the reverse side is fantastic for taking photos of card spreads, so both sides are going to get some love. Smiley

Thank you SO much Selkie - this has been a wonderful swap!

Hey guys!  guys!  GUYS!

Finally, here are the pics of my awesome package from Bubblegum Phoenix.  The massive delay was thanks to my interstate move - i got here a few days ago (and the package was waiting for me) but i haven't had working internet access to get the photos up until today.  Plus the move was utter chaos - stuff got lost, stuff got stolen, stuff got broken, stuff went AWOL and was delivered with another person's stuff in a completely different city....  so i've spent a few days curled in a ball trying to recover!


A wonderful hoop in my favourite colours, already installed in my new place.

A gorgeous wee unicorn pendant.  it's the sweetest thing ever.  At least, until you see...

A crochet plushie unicorn!  it's very well made and utterly lovely.  Housemate is very jealous.

But wait, there's more...

A cut-out-and-fold affair, which is going to have to wait until my poor frazzled brain's recovered from the moving dramas.


A MLP uncorn, a gen 3.5 Sweetie Belle.  i've wanted one forever!  She's still on the kitchen table being admired, she hasn't moved to the Pony Shelf yet.  Smiley

Thank you so so so so much for being an awesome partner, and putting up with my completely disappearing at a really inconvenient time for the move.

it's awesome!!!!

I've received my lovely package from QueenofMarigold... brace yourself for awesome:

A gear-shaped pincushion.  My cat has designs on it, but the little thief can just back off because this one's MINE!

A smashing aviation-themed notebook in a leather pouch.  The flap IS straight - it only looks crooked because I didn't check I'd closed it properly in my haste to get photos done.  Here's the inside:

Note the map on the inside of the leather case.  Actually, just note all of it, because it's great and I love it.


It's black tea with rose petals and lavender.  The whole package had a heavenly scent of lavender when I opened it, and this is why.  It's very nice (I'm a sucker for lavender) and I adore tea, so this was a winner.   The label says "OcTea: for even the most discerning cephalopod".  The back  says "guaranteed to calm the nerves and soothe the temper of even the crankiest kraken".  LOL!!

Lastly, only because it's already on the wall so I nearly forgot to take a photo of it:

'punk life indeed.  Smiley  There are wheels and gears mixed in with the flowers and vines.  It's got no glass, which suits me because I've got a big move coming up soon, and didn't want anything breakable.

Everything came wrapped in deep red velvety fabric and twine, which I don't have a photo of because I launched straight into opening things,  Smiley

What a great haul!

Oh sweet Lord, you've reminded me of the Thing.  This creepy little sucker has followed me through several inter-city moves, even though every time I've been sure I threw it out...

I'm not sure whether to craft with it, or perform an exorcism...

5  Yet another 'halps for my couch!' question in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by Nobodyhasthisoneyet on: January 28, 2012 05:08:20 AM
Hi guys,

I know there are a few 'help me with a slipcover?' type enquires in the archives, but this one's a little different...

I have a sofabed that's seen better days - the fabric itself is sound, it's just faded and stained.  I don't actually use it as a sofa, but keep it permanently folded out and use it as a bedframe.  (This gets relevant in a moment..)

A major reupholstery job is out because I know myself well enough to know I'll be impatient and sloppy and turn a grotty but serviceable couch into a complete piece of crap.  So, I'm thinking removable slipcovers. 

This one in particular caught my eye: http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/3749/make-a-sofa-wrap 
I really like the two-layer effect, and the bindings mean it has some nice shape definition, so it's not just like I've hidden the couch under a huge sheet.

But... I can't figure out how to make something that will look respectable while the sofa's folded out in bed mode.  Any ideas?

I'm not set on slipcovers, I'll work with anything.  I've considered painting it.  Dye could work, but it's quite dark already so I'd have to go dark purple or black.  Also I have no idea how.

For reference, here's what it looks like folded out:

The fold-out mechanism's joined on to the base of the arms, so basically what I've got to work with is a big rectangular 'donut', high in the back and low in the front, with the bed frame jutting out of the centre.

Guess what's turned up???

Yes, it's Javede's original swap package, looking a bit battered and with no clues as to where it's been for the last few months.

Here we go:

Lovely embroidery, in pride of place in my kitchen:


(please excuse the odd shadow that makes it look like it's got a grubby mark on it already!)

Recipe folder:

There's lots of room in here to add my own recipes, plus some already written in to get started.  Mmmm....

Thank you thank you thank you!  A 'thank you' package will be in the mail in the next week or so...

It's here it's here it's here!

My original package from Javede was eaten by the international postal service, which is a terrible shame - especially since, judging by the replacement package, it was *awesome*

Without further ado:

Everything was beautifully wrapped, but I didn't think to get a photo of that before I dismantled it all.  Derp!

The whole package:

Two cute mug rugs, featuring a pink vintage fabric:

Three beautiful big kitchen towels, with the same fabric highlight:

And two trivets/pot holders, with hanging loops:

I love it all so much!

Hello all!

Here's my package from Angelicus... starting with a sweet little bejewelled dotee, who's currently having a little lie down after her long trip:

Staying with the flowers theme, here are the inches.  Please excuse the photo, it looked better on my camera screen...

One of my other themes was rainbows, which inspired the ATC:

Thank you for the extension!  I just sent a grovelling note to PirateColey because I have to send one of my parcels late, ie Monday, which now isn't technically late after all.  Smiley

I have received from MandyKaye, and it's brilliant!

As with her other packages, there was a doublesided bonus ATC:

RAWR!  Dragon ATC:

(This is uncannily similar to... you'll see when Mandy gets her package...)


I'm a word nerd, and love the use of text as the background.


I didn't take a photo of the handmade card, but there was one and it was lovely.

And the dotee, a gorgeous little piece of work named "Happiness":

I hung her on this particular hook just for the sake of having a clear background for the photo.  But I'll have to find a higher spot, because I'm not the only one who loves her long dangly tail...
