close up of the owl:

a blurry pic of me in my new hoodie:

thanks to yarnwench for being a great swap partner!
Yay! I'm glad you finally got it and that you like it.  That was only my second batik (the owl) and i was a bit nervous.  I didn't think the marshmallows would survive the florida heat, but i figured that if they melted, you'd be halfway to rice krispies treats.  And thank YOU for being a great swap partner!  I get so many nice compliments on your crafts, but then i have to tell people i didn't make them.
The floss is for sewing the ahimsa patch on (it matches the brown flower.)  I guess it seems kind of random out of context.  Oh well.

Dewey received her stuff and asked me to post pictures.  So here it is- her very own sifl & olly gardening kit:

It includes hand-sewn seed packages inspired by songs from the show(Chester's Eyes are sunflowers), sparkly and crescent fresh garden ornaments made from bike spokes, and a silk-screened chester patch.

What did everyone else get?

Apple cider, suckers!

Yarn Wench, just wanted you to know that I recieved the picture and it is nothing short of badass. Can't wait to get started. I'm going to let it hang on my wall while I think about all the possibilites. Thank you!
isn't it so awesome?  Can you believe they were going to throw it away?  Here it is, if anyone else is curious.

i also received your picture in the mail today.  It's way bigger than i pictured it.  My roommate this morning hollered up, "Hey, do you want me to sign for this package?  I think it's a baby elephant."  I have my work cut out for me, but i'm really excited about it.

7  Naked ladies with gas masks tee-shirt in Needlework: Completed Projects by yarnwench on: February 22, 2005 07:28:41 AM
This is my first embroidery project ever (also my first posted project on craftster [be gentle]), and i think i've found a new craft to love (as if i needed another).  I made this tee-shirt for my wonderful friend, cole.  He's turning 18 in march and, not uniquely, he likes naked ladies, and i figured, who doesn't like gas masks?  I made the design by studying nude postcards from the twenties, and then decided that it would be very nice if i didn't have to embroider any hands.  That's why she's posed like that; plus it's kinda sexy.  I must have drawn 30 different gas masks before finding a design that translated well in embroidery.  This was difficult for me because usually when i draw, i don't use lines.  I usually avoid using lines and focus on the shadows, but i eventually figured it out.
I used the back stitch mostly, plus french knots and i don't know what it's called but i kind of wove the threads on the mouth piece of the gas mask.  So here it is...
