FINALLY something I can post. Technically this was a homework assignment for my fibers class, but I did originally have practice embroidery stitches on my list anyway so I'm counting it.

38. practice embroidery stitches

The ironic thing is I misunderstood the homework thinking I had to use at least 4 different stitches for each piece, when it was actually 4 totally stitches used among 6 different pieces.... Roll Eyes Oh well, practice right.

I finally can post a few things I made lately...one because I goofed on a swap item and now I'm not going to send it  Tongue Anyway, I tried making felted balls off my to do list and here's the product! Like I said, I have hairy balls (that was for you TSM LOL), but they're neat to try. I'm uber excited because the fiber class I'm in right now will be covering wet felting later in the quarter and I'm raring to go!

The failed swap item is this felt art I made....I was planning to make it into a hanging bag that you could tuck some potpourri into, messed up on cutting out the bag, rebrainstormed and decided to frame it, and then the backing of the frame is just not that great so I'm not sending...oh well. It's destined for my STS shop, hopefully it'll get some love there.

There's going to be a giant crash of the server when I can post all the swap stuff I've done and am planning to do lol.

I received from LimeRiot today!!! I was laying on my couch trying pathetically to recover from a 24 hour migraine before having to head into work today and my bf brought me the mail which contained a big envelope!! I opened it right away although I felt quite like poop and it cheered me up so much I love it  Grin

Observe: Side one  Cheesy I do <3 nerds lol my bf is a big one as am I. I love the tiny tiny stitching and the color of the text is awesome!

But wait, yes I did say Side one, which leads one to conclude that YES THERE IS A SIDE TWO!!!!  Grin Grin Grin Grin

I love the color choices and again the crazy tiny stitching!!!! This is a 3" hoop I think, and it boggles my mind how hard you would have to squint to pull this off. CRAZY AWESOME!! Lime said she thought the little stitched lime looked more like a cucumber but I could go either way lol, and I love them both so it works hehe.

Here's an shot of my hoopla wall; obviously I got impatient for some company for my first hoop so I made a few and traded for a few  Smiley

And last, I had to include a close up of the card she sent me, complete with some of her own inchies which blow my mind too. I've tried to make them before and I'll admit that a 1" format is just not my cup of tea, but she fills it beautifully!!!!! I'm going to have to frame this or something  Cheesy

LimeRiot you are the best  Grin We will definitely have to cross swapping paths again in the near future!

Haha ironic that I started working on this blanket again, it perfectly fits the stripes theme

I haven't picked it up since last year when I started teaching myself to crochet. Its a great use for all those tiny balls of yarn that aren't big enough for a project of their own. The blue bar shows how much I've done in the last two days vs how far I got last year before getting tired of it. If I can just do that much again I'll be all done  Grin
