1  Re: Back to Hogwarts - Round 7 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by Ruby Copperhead on: October 05, 2017 03:17:13 PM
Wow, so many amazing packages!
Time to show you mine from Abbeeroad:

Sewing and especially quilting is practically The Dark Arts for me, ancient and forbidden... so I'm in awe of my new art quilt. The fabric choices are perfect (My kitchen has a magical forest theme and I also love space), and the ripple effect is so powerful! The pictures don't do it justice, the colors and texture are popping more irl!

Ravenclaw pride! The spoon will go up my kitchen wall too. That's a pretty eagle!

Haha, I did get pumpkin spice! It was my big wish from Abbeeroad, because I've never ever tasted it. We don't have it here, and I've seen so many US bloggers rave over it, I needed to see what that was all about. We've tried the spice with canned peaches, and liked it fine! I'll try it with all kinds of desserts now, and probably put it in gingerbread come christmas Wink

And finally the little book. I love tiny books, and look how cute this Fantastic Beast one is inside:

It has lots of cute critters, for example the Niffler!

Thank you Abbeeroad, I love everything!

2  Time Traveller Swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by Ruby Copperhead on: August 15, 2017 03:59:38 AM

The new Doctor is going to be a woman! And it only took them 50+ years Grin
In honor of Jodie Whittaker becoming the 13th doctor I was thinking of a Time Traveller swap.
All Time Travel themes welcome! You have a favourite book or movie or series that features time travel heavily? You have one that has a minor time travelling side plot? Then this is the swap for you!
Not just for Doctor Who although I know what's going to be the top spot on my list Wink

I haven't been organizing a swap in a while, but I guess things haven't changed too much (except for the swap feedback form, I would be happy to hear it's less buggy now). So I think I can do this. If someone wants to co-organize, I'm all for that! I would need to time this for swap time in September or October, no later.

Swap size, what do you guys think? Go big for maximum awesome, go comfortably medium sized, go small and quick?

And finally, my package got here! We don't know why it took so long but G20 probably held up a lot of mail in custom? But it was SO worth waiting for! Look at the epic art quilt I got!

As dfabbric explained, the TARDIS has a camouflage function, but in this mirror she can see her true self: Dialga.

This is so so beautiful and vibrant and well-made! It couldn't match my fandom, style and color preferences any better! And so much love went into the details:

Every detail and stance of Dialga (who is a pretty elaborate Pokemon) are perfect, and do you see those cogwheels around the mirror frame? Right out of the current Doctor Who intro! The light on the TARDIS is glow in the dark, and the mirror glass even has a shiny effect!
This is an amazing quilt and I love it so much! My kids are mightily jealous (because they say that THEY are the bigger Pokemon fans in the house, but they didn't crochet a Hatsune Miku so too bad, the quilt is mine and I love it! Grin) I've already put the quilt up in our living-room so I can see it in the best light.

But I got more!

A super cute and soft Totoro plushie with a Miraculous Ladybug mask (our Plagg plushie is very confused;)), Canada pencils and Canada money and sour candy (was gone faster than I could take a picture Wink), and a nice unicorn card.

Thank you dfabbric, I am so happy about your package!

Amazing gallery, and everyone made such great items!

The season has slowed me down to a crawl, sorry for posting late, but now it's time to show what I got from Inselaeffchen!

I had asked to get something for my Luna poppet (hi IsikkahJai!) and now she has her own Ravenclaw scarf!

But I also got a scarf: An ornament with either a Ravenpuff scarf (my proud houses) or the start of a house unity scarf (which is a favourite topic of mine).

There is more! I also got a lovely Olivander's ornament, a Scottish tartan Ravenclaw house unity calendar (blue, red, yellow and green), and Hufflepuff socks! There's some hidden chocolate in this picture which took my kids less than a minute to find irl Wink

Thank you Inselaeffchen, this was a great swap and I love everything in your package!

Mistress Jennie, that's a great package! Great colors on the mitts, and I love owl cables so much! Also that's a very cute felt owl, and a great package altogether.

Speaking of which, I got my package today! And I love it so much!

I had asked for something for my magical forest themed kitchen, and got this lovely little patronus forest diorama in a pinecone ornament! I had seen something like this on craftster before and greatly admired it and now I have my own! That'll become a year-long decoration, not just holidays, I'd be sorry to put it away in January. Also, that 'Always' is so perfect with it.

We agreed to send extras, so I also got these lovely things:

A necklace with a Felix Felicis charm. You look at it and it already feels lucky Wink I have some jewellery hung up next to my computer for decoration and it already went there to make me smile Wink And I got the amazing charm bracelet with the beautiful charms! I am a half-giant and don't often find bracelets that fit me but this one has a perfect fit. I love charms!

I also got lots of yummy Irish candy (approved by the whole family), extra mushrooms, and a 'Lumos' and 'Nox' sticker that I already have plans with.

Thank you edelC, I'm so glad we finally got to swap, and I love everything you sent!

The package is there already? Wow, that was fast!
Haha, I'm lucky Ronia's unruly hair is canon because the yarn was impossible to tame Smiley
Glad you like her!

OK, there is a little extra that comes with Ronia: Pictures!

I took Ronia to the lovely manga/anime convention we visit each year, and here we are learning about how cool Osaka is:

Picture with a big fan and former resident of Osaka:

And I asked all the Ghibli cosplayers I could find (there were more, but I didn't catch them all) to pose for a picture with Ronia:
Princess Mononoke:

Noface and Totoro:

Another Totoro (well, on the umbrella, but Totoro!)

Noface and Chihiro:

And another Princess Mononoke (I saw at least four of them on that weekend)

Finally, after losing my camera and borrowing a new one, I can post pictures of my package.
I've seen lovely stuff in this gallery, but I'm happiest with mine: the Ghibli creatures, who are a thing in our kitchen on many surfaces, including the hoopla wall. I've been admiring soot sprite hoops online for a while, because I love spirited away and they're so cute, so this was perfect.
Look how cute they are and how much fun they are with the other hooplas!

I also got Sailor Moon candy! You can't see it, but the candy is Sailor Moon sugar cane thingies. Very pretty!

I'm very happy about my package, and I loved the swap! Thank you roler!

Finally, pictures of the package from rubylynn!
I had nicer pics, but then I also had a complete tech fail, so I had to take new ones with a borrowed camera, and then with another one aargh...

I got an amazing package! Rubylynn and I made a side swap agreement, so the package is bigger than the swap requirements, and I couldn't be happier with everything!

Group pic:

I was drooling over the fabric everyone was talking about in the swap thread, and I technically am still drooling over every inch I don't own, but look at these stackable buckets! The print, the colors, the two fabrics, the sizes, everything is perfect! I put them up where I can see them the best because looking at them makes me so happy. They're already full of all the stuff I keep around my couch, like electronics, and crafty stuff that I had previously had to move around because of renovations, and are now beautifully stored... everyone who's come into the room has admired the buckets!

Detail shot because who doesn't want to see the TARDIS destroyed in style Grin

I also got a lovely embroidery hoop that's looking very good on our hoop wall in the kitchen, and some Eleventh Doctor buttons that are now fridge magnets.

Thanks rubylynn, loved the swap, love the items!

9  Re: I miss that SOOOOO much!!! Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Ruby Copperhead on: June 28, 2015 11:14:02 AM
It's a late addition to a great gallery, but both Isi and I had a lot going on in our lives, so I didn't mind the waiting. Also we both may have a little problem with going overboard when swapping with each others *cough* And it turned out it was well worth waiting for.

So here's my lovely swap package:

Five amazing placemats in the for me foreign art of quilting! I was already super happy about them without realizing what they were because I loved the colors so much.
Then I saw the matching coasters! Combining my love for pixel sprites with my love for Sailor Moon. The Sailor Moon fandom has been a double edged sword lately, so I having these beautiful items to throw in the happy scales has been something I'm extra grateful for.
And IsikkahJai's daughters made the coasters! Which makes them even cuter!

Here's the sprites again: (technical problems, therefor blurry, unfortunately)

Sprites and placemats have gone straight to decorative purposes, as I really don't see how I would let anyone leave stains on them Wink The placemats even have secret Ghibli embroidery in them!

I also got a set of Ghandi cards, beautiful, and with great skill of papercrafting (another art which is a closed book to me). I'm tempted to keep them, but they would make perfect gifts, too.

Thank you IsikkahJai, you know me just too well, everything is lovely and made me very happy!

10  Azuma Wataru from Tumbling/Nephrite from PGSM and a tiny Sailor Pluto in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Ruby Copperhead on: March 29, 2014 12:16:39 PM
A while ago, I discovered the J-drama "Tumbling" and its amazing cast, and fell in love with it.
It took me about a year to complete this Wataru amigurumi (craft blocks suck).
I recently gave him to a friend who loves him too and added the little Pluto for him to cuddle.

Reference pics

(Yamamoto Yusuke is an amazing actor. His proportions are difficult to catch in an amigurumi though and I need to do a better job on them next time.)

Amigurumi Wataru for me also represents a high school age PGSM Nephrite (long story)

Progress pics
I'm so proud of the jacket. Worked to look like it was made in rounds (by doing the backrows in backward sc), and the sleeves were done with a bigger hook so they would be flexible enough to slip through.

And a last one!

I'm currently working on the next one and this time, I'm taking notes for a pattern!
