Wow! So much cool stuff the fern pillow is incredible looks so real!

Got my super package from Clobo_the_hobo didn't know what to expect for my first swap but she totally spoilt me! I was in work all day alone so I opened one packet every hour just to drag it out.  Smiley

She wrapped everything so beautifully.

Each package had what the theme was on it. Heres the super cute robot.

First one I opened though was this great little bag. I think this was for Nature theme. (I have such a short memory!) It will be perfect for going to rock and roll do's etc. I love the fabric so much.

Next up was pirate theme cusion cover. I love it so much and currently have a pink throw on my sofa so it goes so well in my living room.


Next was 40's & 50's I told her what some of my favorite films were (High Society, On The Town etc) and she used them to create this awesome frame. I'm so rubbish at ever getting any pictures printed out so now this gives me a great reason to do so.

Next up is Flight of the Conchord! She made this great Business time t-shirt! Yes its a little tight at the moment but i'm in the proccess of loosing weight so this was an added insentive!  Grin Sorry my pictures a bit rubbish for this one.

And finally!!.... Robot!

I didn't tell her but I have a thing about girl robots. Most robots are boys and girls get totally over looked. She has a cute purple bow on her head (didn't come out in the picture Sad ) and some buttons from her Gran and Mams stash. (I love using my great grannies stash buttons so I totally love this) She said she was called Clobo at Clobo_the_hobos house, I think that sounds great to me.
I think shes already fallen for my neighbours windmill. Kiss Wink

She also sent me a couple of little extras some hand made envelopes out of magazine pages, stickers and some paper. Also a cool skull stamp which will come in very handy.

I'm so greatful for everything, thank you so much. This was an awsome swap so glad I picked this for my first to. Hope you like everthing I sent you too.

2  Dirty doormat and X marks the spot. in Crochet: Completed Projects by ChickadeeChickadoo on: July 06, 2009 09:37:42 AM
I've been playing around with twine a fair bit and had a go at making mats out of it. The first one I like the idea but not over happy with how it came out. The second one I love!

I just did a pattern on some graph paper for the letters but then I ended up changing it and just winging it as it didn't work properly.

This was a plain single crochet stretch of twine that i just freehand embroidered on to. I'm so happy I'd love to keep it but we live on a narrowboat and I just don't have the space so I think its going in art sale on another forum I go on.
My mind is full of new Ideas now I enjoyed doing the treasure map so much I really want to do more.

Hope you like. Wink

Here you go Brannick this is the back. It was a bit rushed as I finished this bit at 7.30 on his bday.

I really should have taken some action shots too but my bf is a bit shy.
Heres a pic half way through to..

Thanks again for the complements!

4  Captain Americas Shield. in Crochet: Completed Projects by ChickadeeChickadoo on: April 28, 2009 06:43:40 AM
I've only been crocheting about two months after I got the Happy Hooker book one day when I was sick and wanted something to take my mind off it. This is about the 3rd complete thing i've made and the first time I've "winged" it.

My other half is a massive comic fan so I wanted to make him something I knew he'd appreciate for his Birthday.

I crocheted the blue, white and red in acrylic then sewed on the white star in felt I then sewed the whole thing on to brown fleece so that I could stuff it. I then crocheted two more strips of blue to add to the back to make arm holders so my bf could pretend to be captain america. I'll add a pic of the back soon.

I made this in 4 evenings so some bits I took a little short cut but i'm very happy with it and more importantly so did the fella. Wink
