Love the goodies so far, and that feather bookmark is superb!

JS sent me a huge pile of goodies, I feel so spoiled!

Under all that pretty wrapping paper I found so many wonderful things! First there was this little altered container with some sort of tasty white chocolate goodies inside. There was an owl-shaped chocolate as well that seems to have eluded the photograph.

Then I found this festive little guy and his kitkat friends; he reminds me of a cross between Cousin It and Frosty the Snowman. He's so cute!

There was also this lovely scarf (with birds on it!) wrapped around some of the books, and a mug rug with the most beautiful fabric! Oh, and lots of chocolate! Smiley

Last and far from least, 3 superb bookmarks and a HUGE STACK OF BOOKS! I'm so excited to read these!

This was the best last Craftster swap I could hope for. Thank you for all of the goodies, Jeanne!

I finally finished July! Boy howdy am I behind! Here it is, fresh off the hoop:

The outline thread is gold, which I liked with the green a lot. I wish the light in the house had been more cooperative.

3  Prince of the Land of Stench in CHALLENGE 127 ENTRIES by ChameleonHound on: September 03, 2019 11:22:08 AM
Here's a project I made (at least the first portion of) for the Craftster Stitch-along last September. The theme was "What's that smell?" I immediately thought of the references to the Bog of Eternal Stench in the movie Labyrinth.
And c'mon, Ludo is awesome, and had the best reaction to the bog ever.

So I stitched, appliqued, and needle-felted until I had this guy:

But I couldn't stop there. Not only could Ludo announce the odor in the room, he could do something about it! So I ordered some activated charcoal through the internet, sewed some into a pouch, stretched the Ludo art on a wooden frame, made a little snug holder out of an onion bag and a hair elastic, and now he's an artsy deodorizer!

He's now adorning the wall of our laundry room/ kitty litter area, and let me tell you he does great work!
Thanks for looking!

Great sweary entries, and I love the message on yours Witty_Child!

Here's my wordy entry! I decided to stitch this up for a friend's birthday.

I had this pirate bandanna that need a purpose, and I thought the first verse from Hans Zimmer's "Hoist the Colors" was appropriate. Also, stem stitch is SO MUCH FASTER than backstitch, oh my goodness!

I'm almost finished with July, and I realized I never posted June! Here it is, on a pearl-esque fabric. This fabric was stretchy, so it's a little wiggly. I'll have to figure out how to straighten it when I finish them all up, but I'm thinking some thick iron-on interfacing on the back will help.

I received a lovely package from StainedMushroom! She actually managed to mail me plants, I was very impressed!
The pots she painted, and then once I planted the wee baby jades and century plants.

She also sent this aloe, and all of these packets of seeds and stickers:

Some really pretty art! It's now on my pin board; I love the coppery bit with the purple!

And because I'm somehow not spoiled enough already, a pretty rainbow spinner and a nice little home for my air plants.

Even the cat enjoyed your packaging. Thank you so much!

I received my package from whatthepuck!

Check out the really cool marbling on the Moon, or Sun, or Jupiter? Wink It's so nifty and sciencey! And I've been on a dinosaur kick lately, so I adore the skeleton she chose to adorn this art!
Also met with approval by another orange connoisseur:

Thank you!

So many good things in this gallery, but be prepared to be envious!
I received my package from MissingWillow, behold!

She made me a tiny workstation! It has a few delicious-looking tiny baked goods, including Nadiya's peacock showstopper. So amazing! All it needs is a stressed-out baker crouching in front of the oven (which could be me, of course).  Cheesy

She also sent some lovely tea, and a teapot cozy out of some really pretty fabric! Here's another pic inside out so you can see the bird print on the inside.

I love it all! Thank you!

I'm behind again, but I got May done! I think I did a little better with contrasts, though the lettering could be a bit brighter. Ah well.

I received a lovely package from dontneedaclassroom! The week has gotten away from me and I should have posted a few days ago, oy. But here are all the goodies!

I got two more fabulous books that I'm really excited to read, plus some nifty crafting papers, a tube of a variety of dice (since we're both into board games), some buttons that she designed herself ("I read books" and "I read banned books"), and the most amazing hoopla!

She had asked if she could do an image of my house, since I had talked about it in my first letter. I suggested that since our house is very much a work in progress that she could instead design what it could look like when finished. and WOWZA, I wanna live here!  Shocked
I love that she even looked up some flowers that were native to NY for the gardens, so beautiful! And I think the background fabric is hand-dyed? Anyway, it's already on my hoopla wall in a place of honor because I adore it.
Thank you for swapping with me, partner!
