81  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I could have had my own hoopla wall by now... on: April 11, 2011 05:49:29 PM
... but instead, I keep giving them to my swap partners! Here are some embroideries I've given that wanted their own topic. Smiley



This is where I learned the long and short stitch!



This is a quote from the TV show Coupling:



I really enjoy working on a lightly patterned cloth like this one.





Spike ended up in a frame, not in a hoop.



This last one was a copy of a wisted piece:



*whew* I just wanted to get these pieces out there! Thanks for looking. Smiley

83  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Picture Hosting Support / A change to the picture hosting? on: March 27, 2011 12:38:22 PM
A few members, including myself, have noticed that we can no longer upload our photos like we used to. Resizing seems to work, but I'm just wondering - why the change?

Edited to add: the maximum file size still says no limit, though. Hmmm, maybe this is just a glitch?
84  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Playing mad scientist... mwahahahaha on: March 22, 2011 12:34:18 PM
I recently cleared out some of my old, gently-used stuffed animals, and they'd been sitting around waiting to be donated. So when I wanted to make something for my partner's son in the Eco/Hippie swap, I had the perfect materials! At the end of a night of listening to Radiolab podcasts and cackling intermittently, I had Frankensteined these critters together (can I use that as a verb?).



Pre-dismembering:



Here's the Rabbmation, I only changed his ears:



The Bearit, who is so funny-looking... I even had to take some stuffing out so her chub wouldn't overpower her bear parts.  Wink



And my favorite, the Bunnteddydog!



All of their new bits are securely sewn on, so they should stand up to some play in their new home. Smiley

Details of swap:

Find a matchbox that holds between 30-40 wooden matches and fill it as full as you possibly can with tiny supplies and/or crafts. You'll be amazed by how much you can fit in it! You can put anything you want in it, as long as it is craft related.  Supplies such as beads, paper, ephemera, postage stamps, brads, buttons, fibers, embellishments, stamped images, stamps, ribbons, stickers, foam shapes, fake flowers.  Handmade goodies such as, earrings, magnets, a necklace, charms, pins.  If it fits and can be used in a craft, or is a craft it's fair game. You can have 1 or 2 partners -- you will decorate  a matchbox for each partner, and you will receive a matchbox from each partner. One suggestion would be to stalk your partner and decorate the matchbox to their likes and dislikes but if you have an idea in your head already, decorate away. Just as long as you decorate and cram as much into the box as you can all will be good.  This swap is meant to be a quick, easy, and cheap swap so no extras, if it doesnt fit in the box do not send it, unless you and your partner agree to personal swap at the same time. "Decorations and wrapping" are allowed. Wink You can also make your own "matchbox" as long as it is the appropriate size. Here's one template you could use: http://blog.swap-bot.com/rachels-matchbox-template/

About shipping:
Delivery confirmation is required in the US for this swap, and swappers sending non-US packages must keep mailing receipts and be willing to send a scan or picture of that receipt if there is a problem. If you are unsure if your package is big enough to qualify for delivery confirmation, please upgrade to a bigger envelope or box.
Also, remember to send a message to your partner and your organizer when you send AND when you receive. In a large swap, it is difficult for us to keep track of receiving just by posts in the threads. Thanks!

86  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / *Angel found* Matchbox swap round 4 on: March 11, 2011 06:48:00 PM
Found! Thanks katara Cheesy


One of our swappers has dropped out of communication, so I need an awesome angel to send a decorated matchbox filled with goodies to littlebluegirl in the UK and Melladh in Sweden. You may volunteer to send to one or both. It would be great it you could get it out within two weeks! Please send me a pm if you are interested.
Thanks!

87  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Naughty dotees on: March 05, 2011 08:25:53 PM
 
to change your image viewing settings please click here

We talked about this a bit in the last round of dotees, when fullmoon gave me a great set of boobs. Cheesy Is there still some interest?

I would probably want to organize after Smmarrt's upcoming character dotees round wraps up.
88  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Multiple coorganizers? on: February 26, 2011 05:12:30 PM
I saw that some of the hoopla rounds have two coorgs and I'm thinking about doing the same thing for the next round of matchbox so I can let more people in - last round I had to cut if off at 60. Is there any way you can put more than one name into the coorganizer spot in the feedback form so that both coorgs can give people feedback? I can't find this mentioned anywhere in the swap rules, so I'm just curious.
89  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Gnomey quilted glasses case on: February 25, 2011 12:01:51 PM
I was so happy with how this turned out! I made it for fibreartist4life in the Small Gnome Swap, in colors she listed as her favorites.



I based the measurements and construction off of this tutorial from amazing mae, but with a button closure. 



It was my first time with free motion quilting, so there are some wonky patches, but they don't really show up. *whew* Also my first time piecing something like this, I based it on blocks I've seen around - just sort of sketched it out and started cutting and sewing. The craftster way, with as little planning as possible.  Roll Eyes



Yay!
90  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / mrah (for Valentine's Day) on: February 15, 2011 12:46:49 PM
This was a little V-Day gift for my boy - something we say/type to each other a lot (like every third sentence...).



The border design I modified slightly from my Jeanette Crews Designs pattern book - the modification was actually an accident, but it turned out to be perfect! Here it is still in the hoop:



Small thing, but I'm really happy with it!
