Beautiful yarns this week everyone!

Details of swap:
This swap is for us Canadians!  The idea sprouted from the American 44cent swap (thanks lovesclutter for that bit of brilliance!).  This is our take on it!  Send 1 envelope, within country, Filled with crafted items, supplies, bits bobs, and any other crafty goodies you can possibly think of!  The only parameters I am setting are this:
[/b] at least one item must be crafted and Your envelope must be NO BIGGER THEN  245mmx156mm (standard letter) OR 235mmx120mm (card)
This Round is the Winter edition!  So, Whether you just dig snow men, or snow or skating or things like that, or Love Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa or other winter holidays I’m missing here, This swap is for you!

I am allowing stuffing of that envelope until it could possibly burst (though I wouldn’t recommend that. Could you imagine the havoc craft supplies could reek on the machines at the post office?!  And how tragic would that be for your partner, never mind the post office!)  I also don’t recommend overstuffing if you wish your package to not go as a parcel, which would cause a longer shipping time and cost you upwards of 13$+. 

I reserve the right as organizer to refuse anyone that has a long history of late sending, or poor communication. This is an easy swap, and you have 2.5 weeks to stuff a little envelope!.
I also ask that you post in the thread at least once after partners are assigned. 
I am accepting first time swappers!
Please PM me and your partner when you have shipped, and when you have received!  This will eliminate confusion and frustration!  Communication is key to a great swap!!
Please Label your PMs with:
CSES Winter edition- Sign up
CSESWinter edition- sent
CSES Winter Edition- recieved
CSES Winter edition- question
This will help me with organization.

333  Theodore, of Alvin and the chipmunks in Halloween Costumes by Belladune on: November 03, 2010 05:10:14 PM
My 2 year old LOVES Theodore.  So for Halloween I made him a Theodore outfit! It included a crochet toque with ears and an over sized green fleece turtleneck sweater.  The under suit for the fur was an old dance costume.
Close up of the toque. 

The whole thing:

he was sooo cute Cheesy
Oh and there were mitts to, but he didn't need to wear those.

335  Sandworm!!!!!!!!!!!! *insert Beetle juice scream here* in Halloween Decor and Parties by Belladune on: October 30, 2010 09:14:11 PM
Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!
you've just been sent to Sandworm land! 

for what ever reason I felt the need to carve a beetlejuice Sandworm from the Cartoon version of the show this year.  Armed with meager tools (citrus zester and a few dollar store pumpkin knives) I set at 3 pumpkins and made them one big Sandworm!   (well, not all that big, these were small pumpkins)

Here are the results!
Whole things lit up

Whole thing with flash on

Close up of the face

And I free handed the design with pen straight onto the pumpkin.

Enjoy! and Happy Halloween!!!!

336  The best Trick or treat bags in town! in Halloween Decor and Parties by Belladune on: October 27, 2010 08:55:06 PM
My kids are spoiled.

I saw the embroidery pattern for the ghosties over at Urban Threads and I knew I had to get it and put it on something.  So they became trick or treat bag appliques!  I found the cool ghosts and witch hat fabric at my local quilting shop. It was all she had for Halloween fabric! Shocked
 I also put one on a shirt for my husband, but I didn't get a pic of that yet.  Maybe on Halloween when everyone's all dressed up.

I like this guy's eyes.  I used the spider web stitch with a variegated floss.

Buttons for eyes for the boy who kinda likes Coraline

And pink for my only girl!

All three bags all ready to be over filled with candy!

337  Why? why is it doing this? [Thread looping on underside] in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by Belladune on: October 26, 2010 09:08:20 PM
Why is my machine doing this?  It's making loops on the under side of the fabric I'm sewing together.  It doesn't matter what the tension is, what bobbin I use, how much pressure my presser foot is putting down.  I've got the the right needle for weight of my fabric, it's a new needle.

just to show how often.  Those are happy little arrows I put on there.  They point to all the loops...

This isn't a problem for inner seams, but I can't do any top stitching where you will see the other side of the item (Like on a blanket)  I also think it sucks even if you can't see the other side.  I know it's there and it makes me crazy!

Help!  Please!

I figured I upload pics of our wonderful goodies from the wonderful Slingmomma and Carson while supper thawed.  This pacakge is AWESOME!  all kinds of it.   

Something long and Something Warm:  A scarf and a pair of fingerless mittens!

Something G and something Green:  a fabric matching Game and a Bag to keep it in.

Somthing to read:  'A' 'L' 'E' 'X' cards! they have a cute little cover and on the back are things that start with his letters!

Something made by Carson and something food related:  A bead necklace and a felt banana (Alex's favorite food)

Something to hug or snuggle: A blanket with a great big letter A!

Pics of the happy little boy, all adorned in his new gear!  (I saved a few of the things for christmas so not all of it, but he likes what he got, he sure will like all he will get too!)
eating the banana LOL


Discovering that the necklace has magnetic clasps and can stick to the fridge!

Again thank you so much!  he's all snuggled in the blanket watching Phineas and Ferb Cheesy

12 done. So that makes me a bit behind on the "square a day" part, but I'm a heck of a lot further ahead then I would be without the inspiration and chatting here. 
The stack (minus 2, because I was trying out my joining idea, and I'm not sure if I should do it that way or not.)

one of the ever so basic one colored shell stitch squares Smiley

I'll take proper camera pictures once I start putting it together.  Web cam in progress pics should work for now Smiley
