2  shaun of the dead sampler! in Needlework: Completed Projects by erica_tattoos on: September 26, 2014 07:29:07 PM
I made this for sheepblue in the iyp swap. It's i think like 14x16 inches? I'd say there are probably somewhere in the nature of 60 hours invested in it. I designed the pattern too! (Tho i did steal several bits n pieces by looking at other xstitches on pinterest) she informed me that it was my duty to post a pic here, or else. Lol so without further ado....

i feel so guilty, y'all! i think most of the time half the fun of the swap is getting on the forums and gossiping, and throwing hints, and watching what everyone is up to, and most of all gossiping with your partner! and on this swap, i know i've been lax in providing that for the amazing miss sheepblue, who has had to track me down and ask me if i still had a pulse more than once this time around.  Embarrassed my bad, sheep! thank you so much for your patience and understanding with my crazy hectic life! now i promised pictures of the amazing goodies i got from sheepblue like, two days ago; but between technical camera difficulties and the fact that i've literally been crafting my happy hiney off every spare moment the last week (hey! i perform best under pressure, what can i say?) i'm only just now getting around to it. so, without further ado....

here is the terribly cute handmade card miss sheepblue included. in it she says many incredibly kind things that i'm quite sure i don't deserve. but i'm appreciative that she thinks them none the less!

on top of the package: a super cute halloweeny vinyl tablecloth! i think i am going to keep it in the package until halloween and set my table with it then. and when halloween is over i may use it to re-cover my arm-rest at the tattoo shop where i work! it's so cool, and very me!

next i opened this amazing business card wallet. i love star wars, and i loooooove this fabric! but that was only the beginning! check out the AWESOME business cards that were included! i will be using these for sure! haha!

next, this super duper cute and wonderfully accurate little embroidery! i will be hanging it above my crafting area in short order. i love this!

aaaand theeeen: check out this super cute teeny tiny stumpworked flower! (i put the nickel in for size reference) it is so tiny and so precious in every detail! i have no idea what i will do with it just yet, but it will be epic!  Cheesy

aand i got a little peepee! haha! sheepblue said she didn't make this one, but thought i needed it nonetheless! i quite agree! it's a chapstick coozy!

if you haven't already limbered up your pinning fingers, ladies, now's the time! cause it only gets more amazing from here!  "eyeball" this for a minute, wouldja? how cool are all those veiny strings?

not only is it creepy cool and veiny and delightful just as it is...  but check it out! it's a drawstring pouch! and it's STUFFED with whimsy awesomeness!

aaannnnddd theeeeen..... the piece de resistance! that's right -- all that major spoilage was not even the main show! in addition to everything else, ms sheepblue made me this!

this aaah-MAY-zing mini-art-quilt is so perfectly "me" it just blows me away! i can't say enough about how much i love it! from all the little starwars fabric scraps in it, to the handmade beaded sculpey skull fringe, it is amazing in every detail! and it's meticulously perfect in every stitch!  i can not express enough how incredibly much i love this - it is beautiful!

sheepblue - thank you again sooo much for spoiling me so! i love everything so much, and i just hope that what i'm making for you will be half as loved as everything you've made for me! oh, and one more parting shot - here's a group loot shot - including some stick on mustaches and yummy gummy body parts that were also included!

hullo, hullo, hullo! gosh i've been so horrible this swap about staying in touch! i'm soooo sorry to my boys' partners for not posting sooner! the boys have been away for a couple weeks, and the feller and i have been house hunting, and we got engaged! sooo.... yeah, i haven't been on craftster at all the past couple weeks! so sorry for falling out of touch! we received two awesome packages!

nicholas received first, from emma (mom2em)

he received a pillowcase, a colored batman picture, a felt batman mask, a scavenger hunt booklet, a homemade legoland boardgame,and a starwars angrybirds extra!

christopher received from bailey (Helena Puck) last week, but he just got home last night and opened his package this morning!

he received toad (the character), kirby, and a snake made from perler beads, a harry potter wand, a homemade batman snowglobe, a bag of little toys, avengers posters, avengers action figures, a decorated "c" to hang on his wall, and a lovely card! oh, and a necklace stamped with a "c"!

both of the boys really enjoyed their packages very much! thanks so much, bailey and emma!

wow! so i guess i get to be first to post a pic! may i present to you.... Fridamaid!! susanab combined two of the things on my list, frida kahlo and mermaids, into one! what's funny is that when i pulled her out of the envelope i said out loud to myself- "FridaMaid!!!" and then i susanab's letter and she called her the same thing! anyways, here she is going for a swim in my uncut grass in the back yard... =)

isn't she precious? i love her little earrings and the little flower bead in her hair and colored detail stitching on her shawl and if you look she has little shell bead embellishments around her waist!

the patch on her tail reads "Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?" and the tail has a light coat of what? maybe polyurethane? to make it shiny and a little bit stiff.

plus susanab must have stalked me and discovered i have kind of a problem with buttons. some folks might call it an addiction. i prefer to think of it as a hobby. a rather obsessive and occasionally slightly expensive hobby.... lol anyways she also included two packs of super cute sea-themed buttons.

aaand i just realized i failed to get a picture of it, but she also included a little prepackaged travel sewing kit which will definitely come in handy! it is totally cute, in a little needle folder printed to look like a suitcase.

thanks so much for everything, susanab! i love my fridamaid and all my goodies! =)
