21  Re: FOC swap 2!! in The Swap Gallery by Madmatigan79 on: May 09, 2006 01:14:57 AM
Sorry to hear that everyone is in the dumps... I've got just the thing to cheer you up - PICTURES OF THE GREAT KNITTING BAG I GOT FROM MY SECRET FOC!!! (yaaay! wahoo! yippee!!)  Grin

You will understand my excitement when you see it...

My knitting BEFORE (very sad, being carried around in a tattered plastic grocery bag - shameful, I know):

My knitting AFTER (now very happy! Can hold head up high in public again!):

The gorgeous interior fabric:

Thank you SO much, secret FOC! You got it perfectly right again! The bag even coordinates with my purple needle roll (made by aschnebly in wish swap 6), although it looks much darker in the pictures than it actually is. LOOOOOOOOVE it!! Although I think my husband is getting tired of me prancing around the house, showing off my knitting bag. Gushy gushy tra-la-la!

Seriously though...very pleased with it. You've been wonderful & I can't wait to find out your REAL secret identity! Wink

edit: tried to fix picture of interior but photobucket or something is not cooperating - sorry that it shows up so tiny! You still get the idea, I guess.

Huzzzah! I finally got some pictures downloaded (though I had to borrow my dad's camera - ours no longer wants to work with our computer...stupid technology!)! To make up for my lack of pics this past month, this is going to be a super pic heavy post...

Like I said before, my secret FOC sent something for everyone in my family...the cats were tipped off right away and would not leave my package alone:

Here is the Orange checking out the goods (the shutter didn't open all the way but kind of made a neat effect...):

The package has drawn a crowd (Black joins Orange and the Grey was sitting on the floor, just out of the frame):

Here are the toys (catnip stuffed mouse, bird & fish):

Here are the toys in action:

The Black:

The Grey:

The Orange ("Don't judge me!"):

The rest of the package (a present for me, my husband & my daughter - and the prettiest handmade envelope & card):

My husband (looking like a bum with his "playoff beard" - can't wait until hockey is over with!!) - he got as felt Montreal Canadiens hockey puck stuffy which he immediately added to his hockey "shrine" by the t.v. (great craftstalking, FOC!):

Here is the knit cupcake stuffy for my daughter (She keeps saying excitedly, "MMM! CAKE!!" and then pretending to eat it):

Finally (save the best for last!), I got a transfer t-shirt that says "Good Grammar Costs Nothing" (am a self-proclaimed "word nerd", so this is perfect!):

Don't worry, Secret FOC - the fit is not too bad. The shirt is a bit big (since I am uber short) but nothing I can't hem.  Smiley I put it on right away and wore it when we went to the park (although may have been pushing the limits of good fashion sense as pairing an oversize t-shirt with stretchy yoga pants and a pair of flip flops seems to be enforcing some kind of "suburban mom" stereotype...but the transfer is awesome and the shirt is super comfy!) Thank you for everything (and sorry, everyone else for the huge post!

My computer seems to be working again so I am FINALLY able to post some pictures of the great stuff we got from megaknits!

Here is Elora, opening the loot (don't mind the pjs/hoodie combo...I'm like javastain's neighbour - ALWAYS cold, so the kid & I are always bundled up)...I think those stickers were gone within the hour:

The little bag shown with her favorite 'dancing shoes' & the bracelets (being used as necklaces for Dora the Explorer and Diego):

The skirt & shirt outfit:
(apparently practicing her runway model pout)


Thank you again, everyone, for making this such a great swap!

onesmallinstrument pm-ed me to say that she received her wish for something related to the story "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Sainte-Exupery. This just happens to be one of my favorite stories as well, so I was happy to oblige!

Here is what I made for her:

A canvas tote bag with an iron-on transfer of the Little Prince's rose and the quote "The stars are beautiful because of a flower that cannot be seen", a little felt pouch and some little sheep buttons:

Here is a close up of the lining - it has little stars and planets on it, which seemed appropriate:

I am glad that she liked everything!

Just wanted to let everyone know I received a FABULOUS knitting tote from Madmatigan79 today!

I'm glad that you liked it, redpopsicles! Here are some pics:

the bag:



I was worried about the clashy fish (I loved them, but I know that bright-n-clashing isn't everyone's cup of tea!).

handxhand pm-ed to let me know that she received the "skipping" bag I sent her for this swap. Here are a couple of pics - she said that she loved the outdoors & the colour green, so this is what I came up with...it reminds me of grass and camping (if that makes any sense). I hope she likes it!


PS - handxhand, I'd love to see some pics of the bag in action!   Smiley

I got the prettiest dangly (but not TOO dangly  Wink ) earrings today from seaofstars!

(LOVE these colours!)

And, of course, my cycloptic modelling-for-the-digicam shot:

Thank you so much, seaofstars!! I love them!

I finally downloaded the pics off of my camera - here are the great armwarmers I recieved from redpopsicles last week!

They are a little bit long, hence the fold (I forgot to mention that I have odd little hobbit hands), but otherwise fantastic (am wearing them as I type - genius creation, these armwarmers!).

woot, go dorks!

Speaking of dorks...I got my package from shimmers today and inside my coin pouch was an "I <3 DORKS" lip gloss ("Dork-A-Berry Cherry" flavour). There were also a bunch of other cute things...take a look!

The sweetest polka dot coin purse:

The loot - the lip gloss, stationary, post-it notes (I am a self-professed Post-It junkie!), hair pins, felt magnets and a super soft knit pouch:

The stationary has different quotes - one of my favorites: "Every adult needs a child to teach - it is the way adults learn."

Thank you so much, shimmers! You did a great job!  Cheesy

EDIT: also a bunch of mini-sword skewers for my drink mixing pleasure (or for fighting tiny pirates!)
