571  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Lord of the Rings Swap - Img Heavy on: May 09, 2009 05:30:09 PM
Here are some items I crafted for the Lord of the Rings swap.

Here's a Legolas tote I made. This is my first attempt at embroidery in many years. It was only after I made it, then looked at the embroidery on this board, that I realized my mistakes. I hope to do better next time.



Here are a set of tea towels I made. My partner said she liked to bake so I thought some kitchen items would be handy. The quotes are from the movies. Sam's "taters" conversation with Gollum and Pippin's list of hobbit meals.



And a trivet. Frodo does live you know.  Grin



And a simple sunflower keychain with a quote on the back.




 
Finally, there is this quote my partner liked that I designed with an alphabet I got from a book.

WOW! Look at all those wonderful cross stitches!

Thanks Lunamione!  Smiley I love to cross stitich.

I received from pinkleo on Thursday but when I went to take pics I discovered that my camera battery had died and needed rechargng. She crafted for me and pinupmommy so if this looks a bit like deja vu, that's why. lol

First off, I have to thank pinkleo for her wonderful gifts and express my admiration of her excellent crafting skills. Everything is so beautiful, moreso than the pics show, and very beloved. I knew this was going to be a great swap and I was right. You just can't go wrong with Lord of the Rings.

Here is a "book" that is actually a jewelry box. The design is J.R.R. Tolkien's monogram in Elvish. It's awesome!



Here is the jewelry box open, with a Smaug bookmark. Smaug is the dragon from The Hobbit. In Tolkien's universe, dragons are creatures of Morgoth, imbued with evil spirits.



He doesn't look so mean, does he?  Cheesy

Here is an Eye of Sauron necklace. This is such a great piece. I love the colors. It will go great with everything. Because my mom can't take the pics, she gets to do the modeling.



Here is the necklace and bookmark together.



Here my mom models a Mithril shawl. The stitches look like rings and there is silver thread running through it! It's so warm and cozy. Perfect for when the ac or the evenings get too cool.



I had originally told pinkleo this totebag was my favorite. But after putting all the items through their paces, I can't pick a favorite anymore. It's all amazing!



The colors on this are so vibrant and shiny. It didn't come out in the pic. I was losing my light.

Finally, here is an 'action shot' of the tote and shawl together. They're going to make a great team.



pinkleo is an amazing crafter and generous swapper. I love all my things and I thank you for capturing my LOTR interests so perfectly.  Smiley

I'm so glad you like everything, pinkleo! Your pictures sure make everything look good. lol This was such a fun swap to craft for. I'm also glad to see that everything arrived in one piece. That's the part about sending that always makes me most nervous.

Wow! You got some awesome things from pinupmommy. That tote is gorgeous. I love the colors. And not only is the keyholder decorative, but what a great idea. It represents Aragorn perfectly as he's the key to the whole story, the hidden king.

I can just see Gollum collecting all those little bits and pieces, the acorns and buttons. How cute! I really like the pincushion and fish pins, too.

You did good, Pinupmommy.

I started mine today and it's going to take awhile, a long while, but the result should be worth it.  Smiley

I agree. I'm as excited to see what everyone else got as I am to get my own.  Smiley

I sent my large to Pinkleo over the weekend and she should receive tomorrow. The rest is going out tomorrow (Wednesday). Everything is coming together for me. Hope everyone else is doing as well.

Update: Pinkleo got the first package yesterday. I sent the second today and she should receive by Monday.

I thought and thought but then decided I couldn't resist this one, so I signed up.  Smiley

I'll be sending this weekend, Pinkleo. Everything is ready, it's just a matter of getting it packed up. I may have to send in two boxes. If so, I'll let you know.

I'm halfway done with the big project. I think it will come out well if I can quit making mistakes. Sad

I would like to send early but there are still some last minute things I want to do when I finish this project.
