me and amor,amor got paired up perfectly. look at her bunny avatar, it matches my guinea pig one Smiley
She got the package I sent, so here's the pictures since I've got them in my computer already:

felt hair clip and coin purse.
I have a felt obsession, I'm trying to cope!

i made these buttons on my fancy new button machine. One is my tattoo, the others are googled.

I found this fabric the day before I sent out and had to have it. It was insanely hard to work with, and melted when I tried to iron it. The lining is silky pink, and also un-ironable. I hope amor,amor will forgive my awful demonstration of my sewing skills...

this mirror turned out really not that cool, but it was sparkly and I liked that part:

I was OH so excited to get my package from Folara today!
I think we were both a little bit nervous when we read eachother's questionairres- she didn't want novelty fabric and I love it, and she likes brocades and botanicals, which I have never bought before!
But it ended up that we had more in common than appeared at first glance, and she found some fun fabric in the novelty aisle after all Smiley
here's what I got:

-"loteria" by Alexander Henry (I think.) I was lusting after this yesterday while I was shopping for her! I'm so excited, this fabric will be zipper pouches before long.
-Funky rainbow hearts with stars all around them. So cute, it reminds me of Rainbow Brite!
-polka dots! I love the sage and chocolate combination. love.
-pink with yellow-y dots with more pink dots inside. This fabric is so spring time, it's going to be nice to make something cheery with it!
-pretty tattoo-style roses on a black background. I have to stick with tattoo fabric, cause I cant afford any more real tattoos  Undecided
-aaaand big ol' bright daffodils. The colors on this are so pretty, and I love the image! I'll have to get creative to use to whole image, I feel bad cutting it up.

the fabric is all awesome, but here was the best part:
my package was sealed with SAUSAGE tape!! Who got the best partner ever? meeeee.

Anyway. Thank you so much Folara, I love it all! Your package is going out this weekend [I have to find 1 more FQ.] You nailed my style, I hope it wasn't too painful shopping for me! Smiley

Here I go responding to my own post again..
Here is what I got from ptarmic wampus!

included is:
-a cute box decoupaged with tons of kitchy pictures of food and recipes from old cooking magazines, filled with yummy yummy recipes!
-a cute note with puppy dogs on it
-a beautiful felted flower [felting is on my list of things to learn to do!]
-and a book about Asian supermarkets! I had asked for a partner who could give me Asian recipes, and I got the best partner ever! I'm moving to San Francisco in a few months and part of the reason why is because of my Asian food addiction (how weird is that?) So this book tells me how to navigate the market, what to make out of the foods, the best brands and even some recipes! So I'm totally set!


oh, and here's one of the recipes she sent me that I'll be trying out very soon:

Chinese greens in oyster sauce
Great with Asian greens such as choy sum, Chinese broccoli, or shanghai bok choy.

2 tbsp. oyster sauce
2 tbsp chicken broth
1 tbsp rice wine
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 lb greens
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp peanut oil

Combine oyster sauce, broth, rice wine, sugar and sesame oil in a small pan, boil to dissolve sugar. Set aside. Wash and trim greens and cut into 3" lengths if desired. Boil a large pot of water with salt and peanut oil, add greens and roboil. Turn off hear and let stand until greens turn bright green and are crisp-tender. Drain and serve with sauce.

Ohhh man, I got my package from dutchclassic today and it made me squeal with delight!!
She included some really awesome bracelets: 1 big funky bamboo cuff which I LOVE. She also sent 2 stretchy bracelets with glass beads that are really pretty. But my favorite are the Bright Eyes bracelets! I was amazed! She cut out tiny pictures of Connor Oberst and put them on little beads and they're awesome.

She also included a cute little journal, which is good because I'm a compulsive list maker. And a bunch of pretty magnets made of glass marbles shaped like leaves, which came in a pretty little pouch with her etsy logo button.
But my most favorite item is the cuddle cup for my Frankenstein! He takes after his mama so he's all chubby and stuff, but he's so cute in it! I couldn't get a picture of him cuddling, but here he is checking it out:

Thank you SO much dutchclassic. Everything is amazing and I'm so glad you were my partner! I'll definitely be using the 10% off coupon, maybe for a portrait of Frankie in his cuddle cup?

I have a lotus tattoo too!

I really want to do this swap, but I might have to wait till closer to the deadline to decide. I've got 2 other swaps going on at the moment, but one is almost over and the other should be pretty quick.

66  cowboy themed star quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by FlashleyAshley on: January 01, 2007 03:53:56 PM
In the summer, I had a job sewing maternity clothes out of my home. My 8 year old nephew was visiting, and every time he'd walk by me sewing, he'd say "Are you making me a blanket?" And every time, I said "no." So when I asked him what he wanted for Christmas a few weeks later he said without hesitation "a blanket...with cowboys...and lions."
So after much swearing, an endless search on ebay for cowboy fabric, about $80 and a bout of carpal tunnel, here it is:

a close up:

my little monster looooves sitting where she shouldn't be:

I used a tutorial  found here:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69055.0
I used 12" squares in a 4x6 grid, added sashings and a border, and binding. It's a really big twin size. The back is the same cow print as the border. The quilting was less than stellar, I just followed the straight lines because it was Christmas Eve, and I was tired. I hand stitched the back of the binding and almost killed my hand, but Thomas loved it. So I GUESS being a good auntie is worth my carpal tunnel. Maybe.

I got my package today from aytchjay and it was so exciting. The box was literally bursting at the seams with goodness.
She sent huge pieces of really cool stuff, so I'll be able to get lots of use out of it all! My favorite is the brown and turquoise polka dots and the fuzzy black stuff (very soon to be stuffed animals.) She also sent some suuuper soft courderoy and some batik-y looking fabric with fish that I love.

aaaaand a bag of tons of cool little squares! Bunches of little pieces of fabric I could never afford. I don't know what I'm going to do with them, maybe decorate my nieces doll house with tiny fancy draperies Smiley

and as I suspected, the Postal Service had it's way with it. Lucky for me, irid3sc3nt included a list of everything that was inside, and sure enough, it all made it!

Here's the defunct box, all wrapped in plastic and crunched.

and some of the goodies. Three pairs of adorable earrings, a necklace, chapstick (which was much needed!) and berry postcards!

and here's the box that the little things came in. Also pictured is the MOUNTAIN OF STICKERS, which I love! The box got a little hurt, but I'll fix it!

aaaand a cute purple guy that she made to sit like a couch potato. He's doing pretty good so far.

Thanks so much Irid3sc3nt!! I love it all!
