1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Stitched Mandala Swap R2 GALLERY on: August 24, 2019 04:38:12 PM
I received my mandala from tattooedcrafter today! I adore it! Cheesy She did such a stunning job picking colors that I love and that work beautifully together. The mandala is swoopy and pointy at the same time, and its perfectly symmetrical, which I was hoping for.  *hearts*

And here you can see just how utterly perfectly she managed to match her beautiful stitching to my home, even without having seen it!!

Thank you, tattooedcrafter, you made something gorgeous and brilliant. I absolutely love it, and I will enjoy looking at it every day! Cheesy

This is gorgeous! I love the depth you've created. I expect they were utterly thrilled!

I've already started on one small crafted thing, and I'm making several versions so I can pick one my partner will like, and the rest will go to my sweet tea party ladies since I didn't get them done before the party. Grin

Here's our fancy Tea Party set up from last weekend! It went wonderfully. They brought the fruits and meat/cheese tray, and Mom brought the chocolate cheesecake, deviled eggs, and purchased honey and orange marmalade, and I made the gluten-free scones, lemon curd, whipped cream, cucumber finger sandwiches, and pigs-in-blankets. It's the first time I've ever made a curd, and it was divine! I gave our guests a little glass jar of it as a take-away (Mom got some, too, just not in fancy packaging Wink).

All the silver was my maternal great-grandmother's and the china was my maternal grandmother's. My mom and I polished the silver really well last year, and stored it in special fabric bags, so we didn't have to polish anything this time! Yay! Between the two of us, we had my little bamboo tea box stocked with at least 20 different kinds of tea. Everyone tried at least 5-6 varieties during the party.

And here is my roommate, Hezekiah, dressed up to greet the guests. Wink

We take pictures with him every year, but this year he got a new jabot! It's from a vintage robe set of my Grandmother's. My cousins and I used to use it for dress up, but Mom ironed it and everything. I covered the holly on his Christmas top hat with a chirimen silk kanzashi camellia blossom I bought at an atelier in Kyoto. He was very dapper.

All in all, an glorious celebration of friends and tea. Cheesy

Lovely stitched flag, faemystique! The colors are so rich and dramatic, and I love the draping "hanging" from the tip of the moon.

This is virgin crafting territory for me!!! Can you believe it??? I have NEVER MADE TM PATCHES EVER...

SAME here, fae! I've admired them since I joined Craftster, but haven't ever tried one. I'm really excited about this, and I've already tentatively planned two of the patches for my partner, Sharalee!

Excited to start working on this one since my Stitched Mandala swap project is done. Will definitely be watching all the fun how-to videos this week; I've already gone through the picture tutorials! Cheesy
