1  Re: Craft This Tote Round 2! - Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by unsuperb on: January 30, 2012 10:21:52 AM
I received from Silentblair Saturday night and the sun finally cooperated today to allow me to take some pictures.

First, the awesome bag with amazing fabric.  I love the blue and old lady flowers, it shall go nicely with my rooster bag Cheesy.  The other side has the striped fabric that is used on the handles. 

Then we have all the extras!  I love the horse picture!  The orange and teal are so vibrant together, they practically vibrate!  It'll look awesome on my craft room wall!  And then there's a mug rug with an ant maze for those moments when I need some distraction while sipping on a cuppa. 

I think this will be coming to work/school with me Wink

And then there's this awesome pinned butterfly!  I study entomology and like having bug things incorporated in my life.  This guy will also be a fantastic addition to my craft room wall. 

Thanks so much Silentblair for being an awesome partner!

I decided to make a bag to practice my French seams.  I'm so glad that I did, ha!  Let's just say that I'm fairly sure of what I should do next time around (so you know, I don't have to carefully trim the extra fabric and poke a hole in the bottom of the bag)

I received today from Lady Orizas, and her package was simply marvelous!  I can't believe you're a first time swapper!
Onwards to pictures:

First, I had a huge box awaiting me when I went to pick up my mail.  Upon opening it, I saw this baby:

A snowflake-decorated box organizer!  I don't think I've ever mentioned this, but I have a thing for decorative boxes; it lends to the appearance of being organized (even though I'm not)

Opening the box, I find it filled to the brim! (at which point I start feeling like I should've done ten times more than I had)

Two(!) Ninnis: Mr. Moustached Ninni and an Abominable SnowNinni.  I'm not going to lie, I do enjoy running my fingers through the long 'stache.

Then there's the ornament locket which has a snowflake on one side and a skull from a picture I love.  Ten times more awesome because there's a bee on the outside, and I can further make the people over in the pollination lab jealous.  

Also included: Lindt truffles (omnomnom), snowflake ribbon (I'm thinking it'd make a good base for some holiday bunting), silver snowflake ornaments (bunting check!), reindeer towel, pony iron-ons (!), and more snowflake decorations.

I love it all, Lady Orizas!  Thank you!

I'm so glad you liked everything! 

Here's a close-up of the ninni Smiley

5  Re: Journal Cover Swap--GALLERY!--Send Out Nov. 7 in The Swap Gallery by unsuperb on: November 16, 2011 07:34:56 PM
I received my package from Eclectic Dreamer today.  I was blown away!  She sent a simply gorgeous journal cover extra little pockets.  The muslin has been hand-dyed with henna, which I think is awesome (would never occur to me)!  She also embroidered the shisha mirror (made from a cd!).  I love the asymmetrical-ness.  Aaand those are Hello Kitty pencils, yes they are.

Then there's the bird pin-cushion.  Somehow, I've never managed to acquire a proper one, so I'm super glad to finally have one.  And being from Portland, well, ya just gotta put a bird on it. 

Then there's all the other sweet extras: flower magnets, henna-design orange fabric, mini cards with henna designs, a ring of bells, and the really pretty flower bit (I'm not quite sure what it is? but I love the fabric!)

And candy galore!  I love candy, and even though I only open the package about an hour ago, I'm pretty sure there's less than half left, ahem.

Thank you so much!

6  Flower Bird Mask in Halloween Costumes by unsuperb on: October 18, 2011 08:28:18 PM

In my head, it's unacceptable for me to re-use a single costume for different Halloween events in the same year.  Thus, the flower bird mask was born (inspired by this and this).  Bolstered by this tutorial, I set out with plastic bottle and papier mache (note: whole wheat flour does not a good glue make).  Finishing touches were added with paint, flowers, ribbon, and seed beads.  Total cost: 3.99 (needed the beads and flowers, everything else on hand)

edit: fixed coding (I hope!)

So I recieved my package from Leslieshappyheart today, and it's simply amazing! (especially since I'm kind of a vague and indecisive person who can't pin down what she likes)

I think Leslie was spot-on though!

A zippered pouch in grey-shades aaand yellow interior as I love that color combination right now.  The zipper pull has a cute four-leaf clover on it as well

Then there was this sweet, little Ninni!

Complete with baby Ninni! (both sporting fashionable aprons)

Tiny apron being completely functional (I bow down to your mad skills)

And now on to the awesome apron!

Ahh!  I love brown and blue together!  (sorry for not mentioning that earlier!)  I pulled out the apron and showed my partner, while squealing about the color combo/patterns. 

And here's me sporting my new fabulous-ness (and combo-shot)

This came at an excellent time as I'm heading out of town early tomorrow morning to do field work and this is exactly what I need to keep all my supplies at hand (maybe I'll update with an action shot! though this seems to be fairly picture filled...ahh, excited!).  Thank you!

8  First (pseudo) quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by unsuperb on: August 09, 2011 10:23:19 PM

I recently aquired several totes of quilting fabric and tools from a relative whose eyesight is not what it used to be.  She said she could no longer match up corners, and therefore did not want to quilt anymore.  Even with my relatively decent vision, I seem to lack the ability to do the same, but I'm not letting that stop me.  In an attempt to make a dent in the ol' fabric stash, I made a quilt (if you can call it that?) for my partner's birthday.  Using  this as my inspiration, the following was produced:

I lined the back with a shark fleece I picked up as a. the partner likes sharks, and b. the idea of lining up batting and the back fabric was daunting.

(the kitty is supervisor; without him, no photos or crafts would ever be produced)
