finally posting pics...thank you pamelabd!!  it was amazing to have gotten this package just before V-day...i was mopey and sad because i didn't have a Valentine, but i had a craftswap partner!  and what could be better, really?! 
here is an overview of everthing:

and now the bag, which is fantastic.

the bath mitt, shower pouf, soap saver and dish scrubbies (already being put to good use!)

and last, but certainly not least, an amazingly beautiful scarf

sorry the pictures aren't rotated!!  i'm still getting used to using my Mac.
thanks again, pamelabd!  you were a generous partner!

this is incredible!  coming from someone who is currently struggling to sew up the sides of a lunch bag ( Wink) i am quite impressed.  i would echo the desire for some simple how-to's on the process.  your friend is quite lucky!  this would be worth well more than $100!!

i just read a post that mentioned Project Runway, which is BY FAR my favorite thing to watch when crafting!  it gets my creative juices flowing.  also LOVE Lemony Snickets, Nanny McPhee, Anime because they are so colorful and think outside the box.

what gets your creative juices going?  what things do you see/do that just make you feel on top of the world (or like you could craft for hours on end Smiley)?

lovin' doing/planning for this swap b/c it's making me look at everything like a potential component.  for example, we do a lot of hole-punching at work.  as i was emptying one of the machines, i realized that all those little holes would be PERFECT filler for some pin cushions i've been experimenting with.  YAY for repurposing materials!

love the poppies!  cool idea.  and the oil paint is textured to look like grass.  i love mixed media, especially sewing on a canvas.  a good friend one did a picture of a tree on canvas, using fabric scraps sewn on for the trunk.  keep playing with this idea; i think it could go a long way!

could someone explain the point system?  is a small worth one, a medium = 2 and a large = 3?  if so, would it be possible to do two mediums and a small?  i'm planning what i'll be making and want to make sure i'm staying within the guidelines.

i would suggest removing the pin part, and then the world is your oyster.  you mentioned laying them flat, but you could always buy little round magnets and glue them to the back for cool deco for your fridge. 

i've never tried this, but i wonder if you could "tile" them, using modge podge as a sort of "grout"....so basically lay them side-by-side in rows to form a square.  you would have to put them in something that could either peel away or would form a boundary for the glue.  then pour modge podge in between and allow to harden.  now, i've never tried this, so i don't know how long it would take to dry...it just came to mind as i was typing....

let me know what you try!
28  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Pets or roomates/siblings destroying your crafts. on: December 29, 2009 08:48:43 AM
my cat just went to live with my mom, but he's a boy kitten and was obsessed with our projects, particularly string and hiding underneath a tabletop ironing board we would lay on the floor. he just barely fit beneath, and i firmly believe he thought he couldn't be seen. 

we would have to lock him in a room in order to get anything done/keep it from being destroyed, so he would get angry and pee on something in revolt.

so glad he went away....
29  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: December 29, 2009 08:45:53 AM
i just recently had two injuries...

1. was working on a linoleum block carving, and silly me, did not buy the injury-proof blades, so it slipped and stabbed my index finger that was holding the block.  it sliced the tip down to the knuckly and felt like it was on fire.  after elevating, fortunately the pain went away and it didn't bleed much.

2. after that had pretty much healed, the same finger got to close to the sewing machine and got stabbed with needle, right on the finger tip. 

poor finger!
