1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: TV Addict summer hiatus swap round 2 on: August 20, 2011 12:16:32 AM
Pioneer9 received her package from me today. Here are the pictures that I took before I sent it out:

Pushing Daisies and LOST ATCs

Dead Like Me inchies

Jayne Cobb sock doll. He was supposed to be a sock monkey, but the monkey-ness just wasn't working out, so he's just a sock man. I had a little bit of a hard time with his shirt, and it kind of turned out wonky, but hopefully his rather cunning hat distracts from that.

I've never seen Life on Mars, but this quote conjured up an amusing scene in my head, so I cross stitched it.

And finally, I made her a tote bag with a Carnivale inspired tree painted on it.

I had so much fun crafting for this swap, and I got some great stuff too. Thanks for being such a good partner, Pioneer9!

I received my package from pioneer9 today, and I am so thrilled with absolutely everything that she sent. 

She wrote me a little message inside of a notecard with the Lost numbers on it.

I got an ATC (with frame) of my very favorite Fringe character, Astrid Farnsworth.

This one is about twice the size of an average ATC (I don't know if there is a special name for that), and she painted Kara's eye of Jupiter on it, along with a witty quote from Anders (Battlestar Galactica). This one came in a frame also, but it was too shiny to photograph.

Appa! One of my only requests was that I get something Appa-related, so I was pretty happy to see this guy. It's a paper mache ornament about 4" wide, covered in blue tissue paper and a portrait of Appa from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

I also got a painted Tardis tote with a starry lining. I have a feeling that it will soon be stuffed full of yarn and needles for knitting on the go.

And I saved my two favorites for last.

How cute is he?! He's a Kokeshi style 10th doctor, and I absolutely love him! She even included his sonic screwdriver.

And the pièce de résistance is this totally awesome Firefly mini quilt. The fabrics that she chose represent the aesthetic and mood of the show so well. Bonus Fact: She recently became a fan of Firefly herself. Welcome to the dark side, Pioneer9.

I can only hope that she enjoys the stuff that I'm making for her as much as I enjoyed this package.

Ha, I love this! I can totally picture it on a teenage rebellious Snape.

Wow, checking in here is making me feel like such a slacker. I'm not even close to done with mine yet.  Embarrassed

This is fantastic! I remember seeing your owl plushies awhile back, and I love seeing how this all came together.

These are adorable. Did you use any type of stabilizer, since terry is stretchy? I've tried embroidering through this type of bib before, and I had a really hard time.

Mandys08, I just pm'd you my sign up info, but the message isn't showing up in my outbox, so I'm kind of concerned that it didn't send. Could you let me know if you haven't received it? Thanks!

This is a perfect illustration of that song! Love the song and the embroidery.

I thought I might share some of the gluten free blogs that I follow that haven't been mentioned yet, for anyone who is looking for recipes.

Ginger Lemon Girl
Gluten Hates Me
Hey, That Tastes Good
Book of Yum

I usually use Bob's Red Mill gluten free flours for baking, and they have a pretty good selection of recipes on their website as well.
