I got a gorgeous project bag (and bonus matching pouch) from mimiw! I've stuffed it full of knitting already (goodbye ratty plastic bag!).

Action shot

Thanks so much mimiw, it's beautiful and practical (pockety!), and I love those colours! Perfect! It's even colour co-ordinated with my knitting Cheesy

Note also the fab lego stitch markers in use! (thanks again atsuko, no more safety pins for my knitting Smiley)

92  Happy tree painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by jemimah on: February 01, 2011 10:06:30 PM
I painted this for sarahj2001 for the Ongoing Wish Swap. It's inspired by two different paintings (by different artists) that were on her wist, plus the colours and fabrics she had on there too. Although I liked the things she had wisted, I didn't want to do a direct copy, so I attempted my own take on the style. Acrylic on canvas.

It's not the sort of thing I usually do, but it makes me smile and I like how it turned out. And sarahj2001 likes it too - hooray!

Would love to hear your comments and suggestions.

Yay!! I got my awesome package today too!!

Young Ones Shoes! They really made me giggle. Smiley

There's a Right On right shoe with Neil on it, and a Trendy Lefty Anarchist left shoe with Rick Cheesy

Covered with some of my fave quotes ...

... and Cliff too!

Thanks SO much h-chan, you are a great swap partner, and thanks for organising such a fun swap Smiley  Hope we get some more Young Ones fans on Craftster keen to make anarchy-Doc Martens-lentils-and-Cliff-worthy crafts!

I'm so pleased you like your tentacle Deee! I didn't even know about the octo tattoo Cheesy

Here's a pic of it on the wall.

I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, I have to say.

I love the flying machine, and the Firefly hoops, and too many others to comment on each one (tmnt! bunny in bonnet!!) - this is a great gallery!! You are all so talented and creative!

95  It Came From The Deep ... I Mean, The Hoop!! (Tentacle Stumpwork Embroidery) in Needlework: Completed Projects by jemimah on: January 16, 2011 05:20:22 PM
I made this for the deelightful Deee in the Embroidery Hoopla Tiny Edition swap.

Stumpwork tentacle patterns are not common, so I designed this one from scratch. It was so much fun to put together. Cheesy

The tentacle is stitched on red silk dupion using a little organza applique, rayon and cotton threads. Split stitch filling, spider web, and colonial knots, wired and padded. It's quite small, the hoop is only 3 inches (or 4? can't recall exactly). I think Dee really likes it, and I certainly enjoyed making it.

I'm plotting what to stitch in 3D next. Your comments are welcome. Smiley

96  Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Gallery for round 65 in The Swap Gallery by jemimah on: January 07, 2011 01:18:18 PM
I received a lovely package from atsuko Smiley

Not one but two sets of awesome stitch markers - pretty birdies and cool lego Cheesy - and a big stack of bird notecards.

Thank you so much - the notecards are so sweet and simple, just the sort of thing I use a lot, and the stitch markers are perfect! Smiley

I received a simply gorgeous package from edie22!

She made me a beautiful scarf in some of my favourite peacock colours, and she also spoiled me with some extra embroidery supplies - satin thread and stitchbow holders. The scarf is cleverly crocheted interlocked circles, and looks very pretty and ruffly on.

Closer pic of the scarf.

Thanks edie, I love my package, and I really appreciate your generosity! Smiley

It's here!!!!  Grin

My first parcel from Pearliepie has never arrived.  Cry  I hope it is just having a nice little holiday on a palm-fringed beach, and will come home one day, and is not stuck down a coal mine somewhere ...

But my second AWESOME parcel arrived today! Eeeeeeeeee!!!! (many pictures now)

Fabulous wrapping!

Gorgeous DPN/crochet hook roll, AND fantastic crafted notebook, full of a variety of papers - just my sort of thing! The front cover makes me laugh "There's only one thing worse than one dame ... and that's two dames!" Heh heh - us crafty dames just don't care!

Extras! stickers and pendant, and the fab back of the notebook.

Fantastic embroidery! One of pearliepie's specialties. I haven't decided what I will use them for yet, but I know it will be wonderful Smiley

Awesome pockety bag! I'm going to use it for my best printmaking art things, it has a ridiculously wonderful number of pockets!! Grin and a cute pin, and the best space-y lining fabrics. (and I haven't even got to the best thing yet - I know, I'm very spoilt! Cheesy)

I love everything so much. But best of all, I got a new friend! He is a complete treasure and beautifully made, embroidered all over. Look! He's lovely!!

It was hard to get him to sit still for his photo ...

... as he is really very friendly ...

Thank you so much pearliepie, you sent an incredible package and I love everything!!!!! Grin  Yay for crafty dames!!

99  Little British robin in Needlework: Completed Projects by jemimah on: November 06, 2010 02:00:26 PM
I made this little robin for zilamonster in the OWS.

He's adapted from a pattern in Inspirations magazine (I usually do my own patterns, but he was too cute to resist!)

I stitched him on linen, using real silk (soie d'alger, wonderful stuff), and a little fine rayon (Rajmahal) for the legs and beak. Long and short stitch, satin stitch, running stitch and contrast couching. The hoop is 3 inches diameter, so he's quite tiny. The colours are better in real life, but photos don't really do justice to the silk.

I hope you like him Smiley
