31  Re: True Blood Swap Round 3 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Sylvanna on: June 01, 2010 09:05:57 AM
I received an awesome stash of True Blood goodness from Sailorgirlbonk this morning - and it arrived so quickly considering it had to come all the way to the UK from the US!

So without further ado...here are some piccies to share the joy...

The first thing that jumped out at me was a giant, squishy knitted heart belonging to Sam - hope I don't get a taste for collecting hearts or I'll be like Maryann!  Grin (pictured here next to my boxset to show just how big it is!)

Next came 2 pillowcases - the front of each of them is emblazoned with a Tru Blood slogan for those mainstreaming vampires amongst us...

But wait a minute...what's this on the back? Hmmm...it seems like some of the vamps are still...messy..eaters (sailorgirlbonks brilliant use of words, not mine  Cheesy)

And then my most favourite thing of all...inside this "Sheriff Pouch" - oncluding a Sheriff badge - oh yeah...

Were these amazingly drawn bookmarks...I love the designs...Sailorgirlbonk - your artwork is awesome!!

Did I mention that I love these? Especially Sam...and Eric...and Sookie...bah...all of them!

Lastly there were lots of extras, including a Lafayette-esque bag, some sweeties (already broken into) and a magazine with a Robsten front cover (I'm also a not-so-closet Twilight fan).

Thank you Sailorgirlbonk - the items are great and it's been a lot of fun crafting for you  Grin I may now be addicted to craft swaps  Wink

32  Eco Monkey and Friends (Picture Plump) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Sylvanna on: April 25, 2010 07:07:33 AM
I'm learning to knit at the moment - and for the longest time I could ony manage squares (or rectangles) - nothing that required shaping of any kind. The little guys/girls below are the product of this period (all made as presents for different people) and were made from a basic pattern which I modified a bit  Smiley

First we have Eco-Monkey - made for my dad who has a huge passion for environmental issues and is a bit of an all-round hippy  Cheesy His ears are supposed to look like leaves  :

Next is Music Monkey, made for someone who teaches piano (he has music notes sewn all over and a mini piano stitched onto his behind)!

Then Chic-y Monkey, made for a fan of the Shabby Chic style:

Money-Love made for a tennis fan:

And lastly - Monk Tee, made for a golfer - Monk Tee comes with a little pocket on his back to carry around golf tees, and his own miniature golf clubs (for playing minature golf of course) :

Thanks for looking - there are a few others out there but these are the ones I have pictures of  Smiley

Now I need to progress to making things that don't just involve knitting squares  Smiley

Thanks everyone, glad you like it  Smiley

Off-hand, I see NCIS (ooh, that one took me a while, LOL), True Blood, X-Files, Labyrinth, and Star Trek. I think I'm missing one, though... Hmm...

Yep...well done  Grin The only one not on the list is this one...

Which is a bit obscure anyway...it's supposed to be Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters (the guy on the left)...

I'm not sure if I've quite captured him though  Undecided

34  Jumpers for ex- battery hens (UK based) in Crafty Charitable/Social Causes by Sylvanna on: April 09, 2010 03:46:03 PM

Hi all,

I hope it's ok to post this here but I just read an article about this in a magazine and it melted me a little bit so I thought I'd post it in case any knit-a-holics have a desire to make these jumpers (I'm learning to knit at the moment and this has given me the motivation to carry on with that  Smiley ).

A group of knitters meet up to make jumpers for battery hens who need a bit of extra warmth while their feathers grow back, and have also asked for people to make the jumpers and send them through to them.

You can find out a bit more about it part way down this page:


And the pattern and address to send the jumpers to is here:

35  Cross Stitch Sampler of Geekdom in Needlework: Completed Projects by Sylvanna on: April 08, 2010 11:14:03 AM
Hi - so this is my first time posting anything I've made (eek!)

This is a sampler I designed and made for a friend for Christmas. I (not so subtly) asked her for a list of her most favourite geeky television programmes/ films and then picked some to design a sampler around. Deciding what images to use for each thing was a lot of fun  Grin

Anyway, I was rubbish and didn't take any pictures so the recipient (who's a member here) has sent some through to me (if you see this post - thank you hun!)

I'll leave you to see if you can work out what the  geeky references are  Wink

Thanks for looking  Smiley
