21  Re: TTTPT Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by soorawn on: September 14, 2010 11:47:20 AM
For some reason I cannot see the pics of the first package... but I love all the others!  Brilliant work everybody!

Oh, and I have received today!  Got a notice yesterday saying the package was not delivered because it was too big for the postbox.  Went to pick it up and indeed I was presented with an enormous box...  A minute later I saw the words Amazon and UPS printed (very small!) on the label and realised it was the book I bought recently (and didn't expect until the end of the month! -a book on knitting, by the way).

So I went back home after a long morning of errands (took the day off to pay my respects to my dentist -yeah, big notes are now called respects).  And I found another package at the door!  And this one had an unmistakable flair of TTTPT (the big hint was the family portrait of the wizards next to the address).  When I opened, I found this:

I had to make the jigsaw immediately!  Then I was somewhat puzzled myself that there was a piece... wrong?
The mystery got cleared checking the back of the piece.

It says :"Ah go me own way, bigjob!"  That's Rob Anybody for you, of course.  Should've known...

The letter on the Monstrous Regiment miniposter is cool - that's one of my favourite stories too.  And then there was this little box with something very mysterious wrapped inside...  it was four feegles complete with kilts, swords and beer! 

I just LOVE them!
Here I am showing they've got the perfect size to ride a horse (actually I was trying to show the back detail, but I am still carp at photo taking):

Kimbleshi, thanks a million for the package.  I am delighted with all of it and will treasure it.  I will try the crochet markers/charms too... I must definitely show them off!  Thank you! Kiss

Ok, I have to ask this lest I know without being enlightened.  I see not all ads are craft related but it doesn't bother me much unless they are really annoying for some reason.  But there is something I don't (want to) quite understand.  Now there are these "ads by google", and I've just notice that now they come with a little pic on the left.  What calls my attention is that, in fact, it's the same one or two pics all the time, while the ad changes every time I click to move to another page in Craftster.  What really, really intrigues me is why should I see a pic of a lady crafting with beads illustrating an ad for pet food.
Here, have a look:

This is what I call misleading advertising.  For lack of a better description.  I just wanted to point it out.

I've managed another project this week:  I've re-learnt crochet!  Which I'm going to need to finish those slippers.  But this weekend I should be making pants.  I say the same every weekend.  Bleh. C'mon, let's stand up.  The pattern & paper are already on the table...

ETA a pic of a silly thing I did with the sampler I crocheted...

Well, I'm making a new pair of slippers (the first pair I knit died already.  I am a serious shoe destroyer).  Between one foot and the other, I've taken my first practice in illusion.  Have a look:

The second pic is taken looking flat at the knit.  Slant your perspective and you see the hidden dragonfly!

I like this technique and want to learn more about it.  And it's tremendously easy, just plain knit and purl, that's all.  Hopefully I will manage to make some pattern of my own with this.  I've seen some that are to die for (just check Woolly Thoughts, for instance).

25  My new all day working bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by soorawn on: July 30, 2010 12:19:17 PM
I needed a bigger bag, to carry my essentials plus my current project plus my lunch... plus my books on the days I give a lesson.  So I went for tote style.  I didn't put any pockets anywhere, since I wanted to put everything in smaller bags (ban the books) already so that they are separate and taken out easily.  I also didn't want to bother with a zipper.  With such a model, it works better for me if it's open.  Easy access without showing the contents to the world.
So this is what I got:

It's very roomy, comfy to carry, pretty, good for winter and summer... I love it  Grin

The fabric is sturdy upholstery linen decorated with velvet flowers.  The lining is cotton.

I hope your piggy party is a big success, J_Kieviet.  You're putting so much effort in it, and with many lovely ideas.

I've finished something else at last!  Not the bag I wanted.  I've been working on it and botching it every single time.  I can't believe it.  So I moved to something different and finished the pair of shorts I've been knitting.  They are not perfect... but they look good, they fit and they are very comfy!  And the best, this is the first garment I finish knitting.

And now... now I am not sure which WIP I want to finish first.  And I need/want to start four more projects too!  Ah, decisions, decisions...

June has been a really bad month to me.  I even did very little crafting.  Luckily this month is going to be better, and to confirm a good beginning, I've made a couple of bath mitts.

It takes me just over 2 hours to make one of these, and the polyester corded yarn works lovely in the shower.  I'm glad I finally found a pattern of a mitt that looks really good.

This month I hope to go ahead with my knitted vest and sweater and do some more sewing.  I've also bought a reel of thing craft wire to try and knit it.  For the rest, I think I'll concentrate on organising my room and recording health tips to help me along.  Oh, and finding a job.

Cool! more people joining! Smiley

I've had a very lazy month, but I've managed to make something today.  I bought some gorgeous papers recently and I've lined my boring black diary, the box I use to have my health agenda at hand (by the way, I've been diagnosed at last, it's ME and I am hating it intensely), and a small tray I'm going to use as a catch-all:

Maybe putting a little glitter in my life will help me be a little more positive...

Lovely pendant, sapphire!

Weee!  My swap partner received and posted pics of my package!  She likes it all  Cheesy
Here's a couple of pics (these items were counted already in April):

A rice-sack bag.  The outer fabric is a beautiful ecru upholstery linen, and the flowers are in velvet.  Cute!  I nearly kept it for me  Grin

showing the inner lining.  The zipper goes across rather than along the bag.  It's really roomy.

The other biggie was this set of placemats.  Both of us like Discworld books, so I thought she'd like these cute Kidby pictures on them. 

As a bonus, I got a couple of pics printed and ironed on fabric that I will probably use soon.  They're trials, since they got dirty or blurred or with ugly lines.  I used Lazertran for them, which I was so happy to find at a local craft fair after having wanted to try it for a long time, and I must say I am most unimpressed.  The quality of my "cheap" Tesco transfer paper looks exactly the same.  And the paper wouldn't get caught in the machine making it dirty with ink like with the Lazertran.  Disappointing.

I've received my parcel!  Cheesy  Half an hour ago!  And I am very happy with it.  Everything is beautiful!

This is what I got from Sarantha

a bag, a headband that came wrapped in a pretty tape, a basket and a few -nom, nom, gromf- delicious chocolates!  And look at the lovely landscape of the postcard.  The place is covered in flowers!

The messenger bag has got a beautiful Celtic knot that I have tried to show better here:

I really love the colours and the design.  After posting, I'm going out and will show it off around!

Then there's the basket.  It's great, it's going to be sooo handy!  And it comes with a lovely flower adorned with the most interesting button.

Still trying to show detail of the button:

And then there's this:  a gorgeous headband in entrelac.  I think it's fabulous!  And the colour is perfect!  Thank you very much, Sarantha, I love it.  The whole package is great Cheesy

Thank you, Sarantha.  I just hope you like my stuff as much as I love these beautiful things.
