1641  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Wicked Children Altered Tin Swap CLOSED (sendouts August 28) on: August 07, 2012 05:14:37 PM
I think my husband and I are done with alcohol for a while, after our trip to Seattle this weekend.  While I was there my aunt and uncle kept us very boozed up.  Our glasses would just magically fill themselves with wine or beer.

I know exactly what that kind of trip is like. Some years ago my partner and I visited friends in Yorkshire, England. On the way from the train station we were told "I just have to make a stop in the village to get some wine for dinner." At the wine merchant's, I was surprised when he drove around to the back instead of taking the perfectly good parking space right in front. The reason became obvious when the proprietor came out to load THREE WHOLE CASES into the car. I thought it must've been the wine for a month of dinners, but in fact it barely lasted the four days we were there. Embarrassed

I LOVE the back - as nice as the top is, I'd be tempted to leave it turned upside-down!

I think I need a sign saying "Serenity now!" (Or perhaps "Serenity now, dammit!")

The style of fabric collage that Smmarrt used - simple, uncluttered and clean-edged - is something that I literally cannot do. I've tried, and it always turns into something else or just goes messy. It's annoying, because I really like that look. Maybe I need to take a class.

Aa-a-a-nd that's a wrap, folks! Thanks again everyone for making this such a smooth and effortless swap.  Kiss

That's a great apron, too. What perfect thing for harvest time, both in the garden and in the kitchen. I love the squash-patterned fabric.

As promised, here are some "virtual clotheslines" of the flags received so far.

I haven't checked the gallery for a day or so, and I fell way behind! Such beautiful flags, I can't even begin to pick out favourites. I love them all.

Both of mine in the mail today. I think they may also be a bit hard to photograph, but perhaps Rosie and Phizzychick have better cameras than I do. Or better lighting.

What great fabric on that blouse! That's three sewn garments in this swap - unusual for the WWP swaps.

And I love your knitted lace, Emily. I don't know if I'd have the nerve to use it for an altar cloth though - I'd be to worried about spilling candle wax on it!

I think with whileitsraining back with us, we're down to our last package. When it arrives on Spidersweb's doorstep, we're done!

And blessed Lammas to everyone. It's been lovely weather here - every day the forecast says "unpleasantly hot and humid" and it somehow never quite gets hot enough to make you not want to be outside.

Will send today. One flag is just as I imagined it; the other has taken an unexpected right-turn. Hope it's ok.

I am now afraid that this will be my first try glorious fail and then I'll have to start from scratch!  arg thanks Wulf.

The other thing to remember about your first time trying something is that it sometimes comes out almost perfect. Don't question it, just enjoy but remember that this was a gift and you don't really know what you're doing yet, so the "glorious fail" may still come.
