1  Re: Be My Snarky Valentine Swap Gallery (Sendouts Friday, Feb. 2) in The Swap Gallery by smileyyogini on: February 07, 2018 11:03:16 PM
Hi! I received from Griminspirations! And she spoiled me rotten. Thank you SO much. We decided to do things a little differently and I am so glad that we did. Its just an awesome gift <3

And the candy. OMG...she wanted to do extras but she sent so much more than I did. I wish I had sent more!!

Look! Its a beating heart with snarky conversation heart candies...I love it!!

It even lights up!

And THESE....they are stuffys of STDs. Who would have thought they could make them so cute. I kind of want to sit them somewhere without the box so when people touch them I can giggle. Is that wrong?

And then this ...ALL this! Was for my little guy that she noticed in one of my podcast videos on youtube. He was thru the roof excited. Thank you!

Such an awesome partner and a great swap. Thank you everyone!!!

Hi! Quick question. Would the shawl I am about to undertake that will take lots more than 45 hours and incorporate two kinds of knitting that I havent done yet count as a research project? Or does it need to meet other criteria?


Research Project Name: My Oracle Shawl
Team: Fandom
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, patterns/techniques used, materials, plan of action, expected timeline, etc.)
Its got brioche knitting in the round and lace knitting in the round. Both of which I have never successfully attempted. Smiley Its a doozy. 1200 yards of fingering weight yarn. Im using long dog yarns, lolodidit yarn and some heritage sock in black for strong contrast. I need it done before November 1st. Starting today.

Here lies my stuff. (or the place my stuffs will lay)...

day 1!

Oh my gosh! Its amaaaazing. I love each and every tiny detail. It went right to the mantle! Thank you so much, Kittykill Cheesy

day 2!

Look at this blanket! Amazing...and coveted. I will have to keep it near me at all times. Its the softest thing that was ever made. And that color is perfect!!

Day 3!

I almost died when I opened this. I'm kind of a Morticia fan and this is my favorite inspirational quote ever! She did such a beautiful stitching job. I cant capture it all with my camera. It has beautiful flies and roses attached and spider webbing on the edges. The fabric is tea stained and it looks just amazing. I cannot wait to put this in the entryway.

Day 4!

An adorable cup and after opening it and loving it I heard a rattle...just to find this adorable pumpkin spice latte lipbalm!! I love it.

Day 5!
 Candy!! ...and Coffins. I love them all. Thank you so much...mmmm peanut butter.

Day 6

Ornaments! For the halloween tree!!!

The cutest little witch and witchy boot.

Happy Day 7!

OMG. Im calling her Ophie. And the first thing I thought was...she needs to be lit up at night! I added an LED tea light and it flickers making her almost as amazing in the dark as she is in the light. At first I thought she was made as is. But nope...she is crafted from the bottom to the top. The bats and the base and the garland and the pumpkin beneath her. And the little spiders...I just love her!

And one of me and Ophie alone in the laundry room to light her up. I would have gone in the garage but it seemed a little scary to be alone with Ophie in the dark garage.

Day 8!

I feel like I am off a day...Im sure it will rectify itself


Isnt she beautiful. She is going right where I can talk with her while I do the dishes.

Day 9.

An LED candle. Its perfect for my bookshelves where an actual candle would be super dangerous. Cheesy

Day 10!

Hand embroidered pillow! Its amazing. The stitching is just perfect. I just treasure it.

Day 11

Day 12

Day 13!!

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

Hi guys!!! I have been away and missed so much! But I am all caught up and its all so beautiful. Aliens!!!

And I received! And yup...it fits <3

My jaw just dropped when I opened my package. I never expected anything so specific to me because I had a really hard time filling out our questionnaire. I am questionnaire stumped lately. To the point where I have to stalk myself on pinterest to remember my favorite themes and color combos. Its weird.

But LOOK! I play final fantasy with my family. And I love tea. So...

A quilted (beautifully!) mandragora teapot cozy <3

Its gorgeous! I treasure it. And it has snaps on the side so it fits. I have a massive 2 quart teapot.

tilt your head to the left. I have edited this photo but it keeps uploading like this.

 up close <3

Thank you sooo much Joyful Clover. It was awesome to receive and so nice to get to know you.

Hopefully you wont have too much of a time keeping the colors true on your dragon bag. I used 50/50 acrylic paint/fabric medium. I have had a lot of luck with them sticking. Cheesy I love fabric medium and whenever I see it in stock I grab some at the store. I made mama Nessies box first and then just didnt know if it was artsy enough. I felt a little bad sending something that I decoupaged. I just didnt know if it would make it as a medium on its own. It felt like it might be a small. So I searched so hard to find a supplement project and then found this amazing dragon guarding her stash on pinterest and I sketched her out from the picture online. I just love her. I will probably need to make myself one like it. She might be my spirit animal.
