Look what I got...

It all came in a box that was covered with Gil Evgren cards.

Nautical buttons from Scarlet_Angels supplies.

Pasties!!!  I can never have enough of these.

The leftover cards...I can't wait to craft with these...I think they'll be going in my scrapbook.   Cheesy

A sleep mask...I actually use one of these so it's really handy....and on a side note I'm going on holiday and it kind of matches my cath kidston trolley bag and beach towel...so it's coming with me.   Cheesy

Cat eye glasses in a cool case...another thing that Scarlett had bought but not used...and I REALLY wanted...I'm gonna wear them out to a hen party tomorrow night....and also check out the really cool case too.

Some little bath bits at the bottom of my box.


An actual hat!  How amazing.

I'm so impressed with it all.

Thanks so much Scarlet_Angel...you've been a lovely partner.   Wink

Look what I got!  Grin

Lemonianta has obviously been on fire crafting...

I got little snack packs for dried fruit and nut...yum!  And two teeny charms attached to the card.   Cheesy

A marital aid banana holder Tongue...so it wont get bashed in my bag.

An amazing boned dress...I do burlesque dancing and I cannot wait for this costume to come in handy!  Seriously...at no point was I expecting a WHOLE FREAKIN' DRESS!!!

I tried to take pics of myself wearing it (my boyfriend is offshore or I'd ask him) but the flash kept bouncing back and it wasn't working.  It really doesn't do the dress justice at all.

And check this...lined in owl fabric....amazing!

And finally a Hummingbird Bakery card...I LOVE Hummingbird, but 'cos I live in Glasgow and it's in London I obv don't get down there too often. 

Thanks, Lemonianta!  You rock!!

24  Re: Yarnies Vs Sewists R2 Gallery Sendouts August 30 in The Swap Gallery by BoyceMachine on: August 07, 2010 08:24:39 AM
I am completely blown away with what MiLady sent me...I'm so lucky.

Firstly...19 crochet flowers...

They're not even random flowers...

Centifolia Rose
Lazy daisy
Lily of the valley
Irish rose
Clover leaf
Flared rose
Forget me not
Michalmas daisy
Scottish thistle  Smiley

Then I got a pin up doll!!!  Grin

I feel like I should tell you that her nipples are made of little poppers to not only hold her dress up...but holds her pasties on AND there's a little ruffle on her "burlesque" knickers on the bum!!

And now my extra (what where all those flowers and the doll them?!?!?)..a mint green shawl.  So pretty and very comfy!

If I wasn't on my own just now I'd have been able to do an action shot of me in the shawl

Sorry if the pics are a bit grainy...they really don't do MiLady's work the justice it deserves.

Thanks MiLady!! Grin

Spoiled doesn't even nearly cover how I feel just now.  I can just say that if you're ever in a swap with jadore-le-rose, cross your fingers that you get her 'cos she's AMAZING!   Grin


Cupcake fairy box, containg a cameo necklace and a fabric covered necklace

Handy drawstring bag

Reversable bunting

Instuments of sewing pincushion

Stripey handle bag

I couldn't be happier with this swap and it actually the only time I've ever in my life considered using my "Sunday Name" so I could I could have wangled more items...I've LOVED this.   Grin

26  My first attempt at a dress (actually any clothing) IMG heavy! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by BoyceMachine on: July 17, 2010 02:30:37 PM
So, my friend is getting married next Thursday and my little sister needed something to wear.  On account of her having no money and not being able to get nice clothes to fit her shape I said I'd make her something.

I DO NOT make clothes ever but she studied textiles at college and she made the pattern and cut it out and I stitched it all together...that was our deal.  We did a practice one this morning with her pattern and then she made the changes she needed for the real thing which I did this afternoon.

It's based of the Vivien of Holloway swing dresses...http://www.vivienofholloway.com/1950s-Halterneck-Polkadot/1950s-Halterneck-Red-White-Polka-Dot-Sateen-Dress.html (which I will be wearing a floral one to this wedding).

Here's a bunch of photo's we went out the park and took this evening before she had to get the train home.

As this was my first attempt at dress making any comments or tips would be great...it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be!  And I think Sharry really likes it too!!   Grin

Look what I got from the lovely Calluna,  it's a tiny notebook with rainbow tassley bits coming off of it and embroidery thread rainbow on it.

There's all different coloured pages inside it too.

So pretty...thanks so much! Grin

I recieved from Le Mieux this morning and it was well worth the wait.

Perhaps the funniest book ever written (on Ashtead) and Moulin Rouge coasters.

A cosmetic bag and strawberry pasties.

An elevenses tea towel.


A Pimms tea towel!

I absolutely LOVE all of it...what lovely way to be woken in the morning!

Thanks so much Le Mieux.

30  Re: Make Me a Purse Then Fill It-- Gallery in The Swap Gallery by BoyceMachine on: June 26, 2010 02:36:40 AM
Check this out!!!

I'm so excited by this...I sent my bf to the post office this morning to collect my package and got my purse from Norhakate!

I love it so much...and the extras too. 

My boy actually was laughing and saying "Could you please stop saying skill and talent"!  That's how excited I am.   Grin  I'm actually amazed at it.  There's a little felt applique paisley pattern bit on it too with a button...I LOVE felt and buttons (and Paisley is a town along from Glasgow so that makes me giggle a bit too).

Thank you so much for it.  You rock!

Sorry my pics aren't great...but I need to work quick 'cos I think my computer is about to die.  Huh
