I am the luckiest swap partner ever and recipient of this beautiful piece of art. I can take more pictures if you like but some I have already taken from the side are (don't mind the stray dog hair in picture 2 - I only saw it in the pic and have now removed said stray hair -how do they get everywhere?!?  Shocked):

Sorry my picture taking abilities are shocking - but I hope it gives some idea of the amazingness of this piece of work - thanks so much Ludi for swapping with me  Grin

Awesome package MommytheMaid!!

After a 4 day wrestle with internet problems I am finally able to post photo of the incredible cryptid crafts Ludi made for me (I am so spoilt!)

The first item is a beautiful, gorgeous, crazy-impressive kelpie or scottish waterhorse. I love him (for some reason I decided it's a him) so much. The colours, stitching, stump work and ... well just everything is absolutely perfect  Grin Sorry it's so washed out we are having storms here (hence no internet) but here take a look!

And a superb Thylacine Teesha Moore inspired patch - I love the old world photos of the thylacine so this is perfect.

Thanks so much Ludi for swapping with me and for your patience whilst I posted these pics - I have my fingers crossed your parcel is not too far away - grrr international shipping  Embarrassed

Ani Mei's package for me arrived and it's glorious  Grin Apologies fo a very pic heavy post  Shocked I can't believe I have so many beautiful clothing choices for my dolls - yes that's right plural!! I started the swap with only Operetta and since then (inspired by all the great dolls I have seen and some great sales on lately) added Skelita, Spectra and Laguna!! Check out the awesome threads and accessories Ani Mei made for me  Smiley

I gave rockabilly as one of my styles - I love this polka dot dress with lace and red ribbon trim. I decided to pair it with the crocheted beret and scarf Ani Mei made out of a lovely fuzzy/sequin-y yarn

Next a beautiful purple kimono that fits perfectly - modelled by Operetta

Next a slinky tiger print dress and a few more accessories - beads for bracelets and a gorgeous black bag with chain strap. Also the coolest silver belt - love the use of a jewelry clasp.

And with a red cape - love!!  Cheesy

And last but by no means least  - a little black dress. How good does it look?!? Also a close up to chow the sequin detail

Thankyou so much Ani Mei - I am relatively new to the world of MH - the goodies you sent me has increased my obsession a thousand-fold. I hope your package arrives soon and you like them as much as I love what you have made for me  Smiley

I feel for you Ani Mei (BTW I missed this post sorry for the late reply  Embarrassed) I have gotten used to the lengthy wait - I am much more patient than I used to be  Cheesy I don't think it will be too much longer - let you know as soon as your package arrives for me - I can't wait to see it  Grin

I want every single bit of clothing I have seen - the underwear is a nice idea!! I love the fabrics and patterns everyone has used.

(just typed a whole response and lost it  Embarrassed -trying again)

I really need to catch-up  Undecided

Ludi I love the embroidery and texture of the yarn used for the brain and fantastic use of Latin!  Cheesy
Wings of Clay every time I look at that skull you altered for Ludi  - I see more details the eyes just popped out at me. Love the glasses and yarn brain and how vintagey it looks/ The fridge magnet is amazing and so is the ornament love!
LaChapa Brrraaaainnnssssss. And in a jar with a cerebellum and brainstem   Grin
Kittykill amazing huge eye! And your hoops are always awesome love the look of this one  Cheesy
Briann003 I am in awe of the stitching of vessels on that skull and the plastic aprons are perfect want
Avocadoeldorado that is one of the most incredible piece of stitched art I have seen and there is a mountain of amazing stuff on cratster! It reminds me of the pictures Abby from NCIS has blown up and put on the walls of her lab!

Manja_is has asked me to post some pictures of what I sent as it is a bt tricky to get to it at the moment. I stalked pinterest and combined that with manja's questionnaire and combined bones, hearts, realism and purple (Manja's favourite colour!) There is an embroidered heart on a journal cover, vintage images on a bracelet and earring set, vintage images on pendant necklace, a small vial containing polymer clay 'blood cells', and drawings on a mug (pun - I find that humerus) and lolly jar (didn't take a photo of the last one)

Thanks Manja for swapping with me and sending me some amazing anatomical goodies  Grin And the amazing kittykill for organising!

Thanks everyone for the kind words - I loved making that bunting. Irid3sc3nt pinned she loved round bunting which I thought looked pretty amazing so gave it a go. And I loved stalking and researching all the vintage postcards - incredible.

Now it's my turn to post some vintage Halloween amazingness - sorry too for the pic quality - it's just on sunset here.

Irid3sc3nt brought together stuff from my questionnaire and pins to make this beautiful cloche. I have always wanted one. It combines vintage (lace, pearls, black bows, doily) skeletons, bats, vintage key and sweet blackbird and I just love it to bits. Irid3sc3nt left it up to my interpretation whether Mr Skeleton was releasing or trying to catch the bat - Have a look!!

There were also some really great Halloween-y extra's as Australia hasn't really got a strong tradition with Halloween and I love all the vintage imagery, sweets and bits & bobs.

Thank you so much irid3sc3nt for swapping with me and choosing to ship internationally. And I hope arriving after Halloween wasn't too frustrating!! I have Jack (after Nightmare before Christmas) sitting out on display - he's good enough to be out all year round  Cheesy

Thanks to you too kittykill for another amazing vintage swap - another home run!!  Grin
8  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Monster High Round 2! Send-outs 11/15 on: November 08, 2014 10:34:39 PM
Hello all! In a move that has surprised myself more than anyone else, I have shipped out!! Hopefully it shouldn't take too long for my package to arrive, even though it has a LONG way to go.

Can't wait to see what you made AniMei  Grin I have a couple of more details to finish and then yours will be on it's way as well. I am a bit nervous about this one as I am a newbie and AniMei has a whole stack of awesome MH dolls. I have my fingers crossed I have made some things you will love  Smiley On the plus side I have a stack of cool MH patterns and a *ahem* slight obsession with making doll clothing - their wardrobe is going to be larger than mine (and that's pretty big)  Shocked

I received a package of wordy goodness that fulfilled all my dreams from Magpirate just before the weekend. I have to thank her for her patience as I took photos and forgot to take my camera when we left for said weekend. I receive all my craft swap packages at work and squealed in delight at what Magpirate made for me - wait till you see it  Cheesy

First - I am reading through all the books in the Outlander series at the moment by Diana Gabaldon and being a redhead of Welsh descent and loving words I had a list of Gaellic words for red or red haired etc that Magpirate kindly embroidered for me in a celtic image. The stitching is exquisite - I tried to get a good photo but my camera was not up to the task - trust me the stitches are so tiny and so neat - beautiful.

We also agreed on extras and Magpirate included some amazing ones - an extra image of Gaellic words in a celtic image, an awesome Harry Potter TM patch (love the spells, fonts and gold thread on red material) and a tiny leather bound book with punny jokes!! As well as a small Gallifreyan charm (my most favourite fandoms covered  Grin)

And lastly - a picture of it all together - I have been spoiled big time!!

Thank you so much Magprirate for swapping with me - I am in awe of your embroidery skills and chuffed to own one of your crafted pieces  Smiley

Thanks too Blasphemy for organising - I know your swap angel will be spoiling you too!!
