Great package, monnie! What was the deodorant made from?

I received from rantyhippie today! Behold my awesome goodies:

A kitchen towel with crochet trim and granny square headband (I love this, and can't imagine why I never thought about putting granny squares together for headband!):

Cute flower banner/garland and peace sign notebook, both of which will quickly be residing in my office:

An icord wrap bracelet:

A hippie surprise:

And a giant bandanna picnic blanket, just like the one on my pinterest! rantyhippie hand-stitched this bad boy, too!

Thank you so much, rantyhippie! I love it all!

Hang on to your hats, folks. I got an AMAZING package from Susie Apple! Check it out-

Moonrise Kingdom coasters!

Susie said this is the first time she'd attempted something like this. The set is made of Sam and Suzy's letters back and forth. The letters are handwritten, and the doodles were drawn by her, too. The backing pages are from books with various topics (on the one about Sam starting the fire, there's a bit from a guidebook about starting fires. The letter from Suzy has a page from a book about birds.). They are finished with resin, and the resin set flawlessly! Here are the individual shots-

In her note, she apologized for some trial and error flaws, but I don't see any flaws at all! My hubs hasn't even seen Moonrise (a travesty, I know; I'm working on it), and he called them, "really, really cool!" We did a four point swap, but I'm pretty sure that the work and thought that went into these qualifies them as a 20 pointer! Wink

She also made me a Max Fischer journal! I love the artwork on the cover, she perfectly captured his snark:

I'm a Rushmore junkie- it was my first Anderson film, and it remains my favorite. Every single thing Max says is either comic gold, or amazingly on point and contemplative. She really captured his whole attitude on the front! And inside the back cover:

A quote from a contemplative max moment in the film and some crafty tidbits (including a bee  Wink ). I am in the market for a new notebook for work, and this fit the order perfectly! I can't wait for my colleagues to be super jealous of my notes (we're all Anderson fans).

Thank you so much, Alynna! This was an amazing package, and I'm so happy to be on the receiving end of it!  Cheesy

Oh. Em. Gee. Dudes, prepare to be jealous!

I received from sarahelise today. She had this EXCELLENT theme- The summer of Frida Kahlo! I adore bright colors, sugar skulls, natural products, and I live in Texas. Sarah combined all of these into some awesome stuff!

First off, a pinata can! It's so cute!

I opened the silver envelope on top of the can to find some crocheted big earrings. I LOVE THESE! I just cut my hair off super short, so I asked for fierce earrings; she definitely delivered! I'm going to wear them to work tomorrow.

Inside the can, I found some super awesome bookmarks. I was recently bemoaning the fact that I don't have any cute bookmarks- problem solved!

Sarah also made me some great garden markers, and sent me the matching seeds.

She also poured me some shell citronella candles and made some lavender-mint bath salts (with mint from her garden!):

And finally- a sugar skull bag! I adore this bag so much!

Thanks so much, Sarah! It's been an excellent swap!

I got my package from Belladune today! It's LOVELY! I am so excited to spin it up!

Y'all, I am in LOVE with these giant blue batts! They are an 80/20 blend of merino and silk, and they feel unbelievable! The red is blue faced leicester, and I just adore the color! She also sent me some metallic blue thread and beads for plying fun.
Can't. Stop. Touching. The. Batts.

Thanks so much, Belladune! Both for organizing AND for my awesome package!!!  Grin Grin Grin

Details of swap:
I don't know about you guys, but I missed seeing The Grand Budapest Hotel during its theatrical release- no theaters around me were showing it! I thought it might be nice to commemorate its DVD release next month with another round of the Wes Anderson swap. This swap is open to every fan of Wes'; not just those that like a particular film. The base for this swap is  four points, but if you'd like to have a five point swap, please indicate in your questionnaire. I will be matching folks up according to their point preference. Dying for that Team Zissou sweatshirt? Desperately need a beret like Max's? Gotta keep your hands warm while missing a finger, like Margot? Need to draw a Sam and Suzy map? This is the swap for you.

We'll be using the typical point system for this swap:

Large = 3 points
Medium = 2 points
Small = 1 point

Large = 3 or more hours
Medium = 2 or more hours
Little = 2 or less hours

By Size
Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
Large = $30 or more
Medium = $10-$30 dollars
Small = $10 or less

7  Flower Shawl in Crochet: Completed Projects by pollyprissypants on: April 25, 2014 03:02:55 PM
I have been watching entirely too much American Horror Story: Coven lately. Murder House used to be my favorite season, but it may have competition now. I was feeling inspired by all the great piano shawls that Misty Day and Stevie Nicks wear, so I wanted to make something similar. I found this awesome pattern on Ravelry. It's the Black Swan shawl by DROPS design. I crocheted it up, and here it is!

It didn't take as long as I thought it would for the actual crocheting. I opted to stitch it together with a yarn needle instead of single crocheting all those squares (I think it makes a smoother look, but maybe that's just me). The stitching together part took FOR EV ER. Gah! But it's done and I love it!

Fellow hookers, is there an alternative to crocheting or stitching granny squares together? Yeesh!  Wink

Hey guys! MissingWillow and I did a private swap- I wanted some fleece, and she needed a cowl for her husband. My fleece came today, here it is!

It's a giant box of raw fleece, and I'm thrilled! Thanks, MissingWillow!

So my list has making a scarf using the scarf loom I built...... but then a super awesome lady in my spinning and weaving guild kindly offered to let me borrow her table loom. I had a blast using it, so here is my woven scarf that was actually woven on a legit loom! This is my January challenge entry for new craft.

I made it a post over on the weaving board. There's lots more pics there, if anyone's interested:

10  First ever weaving project- pic heavy in Weaving: Completed Projects by pollyprissypants on: January 18, 2014 09:51:28 AM
Hey gang! A very good friend of mine let me borrow a table loom and her warping board. I'd never used either before, but with YouTube and some willpower, I figured it out. This is my first ever attempt at weaving anything at all. I made a scarf using some yarn I spun up over the Christmas break (I dyed the yarn with food coloring). I really love how this turned out, and I'm officially addicted to weaving!

Thanks for looking!
