1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Gallery and Discussion Round 141 (September 2017) on: September 17, 2017 11:54:13 AM
Sunday seems to be my day to be here... taking a break from hand stitching a binding on a flannel rag quilt. It is going to take me forever! then again, I think I have been working on this quilt for about 2 years already so what is another couple months to get the binding done. I really need to get myself focused. I have a 9 patch that is nearly done being pieced (made with jelly rolls received in this swap) Grandma's flower garden with all the flowers started, just need to finish doing a row of white around each and then black 'sashing' hexies to go between the flowers, and now I am trying to start on the grandbaby's I-spy quilt even though I have these 3 others that need to be finished and the 17-yr-old going off to college next year and in need of a homey quilt to keep the love of her family close by each night. Yep, must focus.

Sunday morning and I am back - claiming Smeddley for something purchased

3 claims, 0 sent, 0 received

About Me: My name is Laura and I live in Maryland with my husband, 3 kids, granddaughter, a dog, a cat, a rabbit, and a box turtle.

For most things, I would prefer items inspired by my pinterest instead of exact duplicates.

We have no allergies here (other than awful ragweed allergies... but can't see that as much of an issue in swap packages). We have been having a go at switching from a vegetarian diet to a vegan diet so probably better to stay away from foods unless they are vegan.

Please feel to claim me for anything on my Please make this for me boards on pinterest:
http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me/
http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-knitcrochet/  
http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-embroidered-bits/
https://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-sewn-bags-containters-pouc/

Anything inspired by something on my blue and white board is fair game too:
http://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/blue-white/  

or really any board... I love pinterest surprises.

Favorite themes (love mashups!)
   - Firefly - Jayne is my favorite, as well as anything with just Serenity
   - Stitch, Toothless or Baymax (really love mash-ups)
   - Harry Potterish, favorite things are Dobby, SPEW, Neville, the word "Always"
   - Hobbits, the One Ring or relating to the Tree of Gondor
   - Princess Bride
   - Unseen University
   - Diet Mountain Dew
   - tea - I have a whole board of tea inspiration (https://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/tea/)
   - Uncle Iroh (love the man! Love his philosophy, love his love of tea, love him)

BIG WISH: I am collecting fabrics for an eye spy ticker tape quilt. Would love a few squares/rectangles of fabric with a subject identifiable by a preschooler. anywhere in the 2"x2" to 4"x4" size. Please make sure there is at least .5" margin around the design.

Also Big Wish: I really love mugrugs & Coasters - need more for my new craftroom. Would love in any theme above or just blue or blue and white.

~ Wednesday & fridays are farmers market days - can always use more market bags - sewn, crocheted, whatever Smiley

~Tea caddy - painted? decoupaged? blue themes always loved or any of my favorite themes

~ tea containers, painted, decoupaged or whatever.

~ simple bags, purses or pouches - bonus points for a bit of embroidery to them. (if looking for inspiration: https://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-embroidered-bits/ and https://www.pinterest.com/averiakrazy/please-make-this-for-me-sewn-bags-containters-pouc/)

~ blue quilted hot pads

~ oven mitts - all I have are super huge ones, would love fingertip style. As with most everything, I would love blue, but also happy to get something in a fun print like cupcakes, veggies or lobsters (named Jimmie, and never eaten)

~ Microwave bowl holders

~ Reusable swiffer covers

~ fabric, crochet or knit bowls, baskets, bins

~ Simple indigo placemats or napkins with subtle accents, like maybe a tiny smidge of embroidery, or a shell painted, stamped, appliqued in a corner, or maybe even a little bleach stenciling on it

~Tiny artwork - Embroidery, drawings, paintings - inchie, twinchie, rinchie sort of sizes. I'm sure it doesn't need to be said, but would prefer quality over quantity. One is more than enough if made with love and care
   
~Any sort of anything made from recycled Diet Mountain Dew cans, jewelry, bookmarks, wreath, box, anything
   
~Turtle cozies! My Tasha needs a cozy.
   
~The start of an altered journal
   
~zippered M&M's pouch

~ 1" hexies in blue - or blue and white, or just blue fabric cut for 1" hexies (2.5" squares)
   
~and just in case MissingWillow returns to this swap, or someone else takes up pottery, Pottery buttons with a blue black glaze or a japanese style tea cup or bowl made just for me

Favorite words/quotes - Ideal for stamping/stenciling on Jewelry, keychains, t-shirts, wall art or for embroidering/appliqueing/papercrafting onto sketchbooks/journals, bookmarks,

   - batik fabric - blues/greens/purples or any blends of those colors together
   - Any fabric in blues or blue and white, especially indigo shades.

Finally have a few minutes to myself - let me post some pics of the awesomeness I received ages ago. I am so sorry for the late post.

Our fearless leader rscowtown spoiled me with a ton of books! I can not wait to really dig into them! The children's clothing books come with patterns for all the outfits. so stinking cute!!!


GingerPeachy sent me a great claim of 3 tie dyed bags - sorry there are only 2 in the picture, but one was immediately claimed for carrying baby items around the house with the baby. It has all her favorite toys. She also included the amazing extra of a jelly roll of all blue and white fabrics. Thank you for the wonderful package!

Here is the one from AIMR. Love the selvage at the bottom!


And for myself - yes, i insanely love blue
