Joyful Clover was my Angel and she did AWESOME! I really really love both of my patches!

First up are the Martians from Sesame Street! They. Are. FABULOUS! My bf even stated, "Those are so cool." Which is high praise coming from him! I love them so very much!

But even more so...GRAVITY FALLS!!!! Each time JC and I swap, we seem to infect each other with a love for something new. This time, it was the Disney cartoon "Gravity Falls." I have asked multiple times (and will continue to ask because I love GF.) on multiple swaps for something from Gravity Falls. And this is just PERFECT!!! She also did a subtle mash up...because the image on Mabel's sweater was changed from...I think it probably was originally a star with a rainbow...to a parasol with a rainbow. And Dipper's response is..."Shiny!" Parasol...shiny...Firefly!!!! She did such an amazing job with the felt. I am jealous of her skills!

I squealed several times as I opened this package. It was two TM patches and two Adult Merit Badges. You can head on over to the merit badge swap gallery to see that wonderful stuff!

Ann Power is my favorite! Followed closely by yarn crafts with cats. That's hard stuff man! Anyone that attempts that deserves a badge!

Okay. I received from Joyful Clover! As expected, they are FAB-UL-OUS!

First off is my "Not Grown Up" theme. Life is serious and I think it is important to retain a kid's sense of wonder about the world. I absolutely LOVE the feather and how she incorporated the ribbon by stitching on it. Just wonderful.

And my second badge was another version of "Turtle Crafter." I absolutely love it! Especially because I kind of think it also incorporates a theme I didn't add in but thought I did!  Roll Eyes I live by the ocean! I have ALWAYS wanted to live by the ocean. ALWAYS. In my entire life I have been land locked (lived too far away from a major water source) ONCE...and it was miserable. Right now I live so close to the ocean that I see it EVERY DAY. and I love it.

THANK YOU JC!!!!! She also was my Swap Angel for the TM Patch swap. If you want to see THAT fabulousness, head on over to that gallery!

I have received and they are FABULOUS!!!

I'm always envious of those of you who are quick crafters. I am the opposite. I am slow. Deliberate. Meditative. Turtle like even. For this patch bywilma chose my "Craft Turtle" theme. I think she nailed it.

And then she chose my "Queen of the Dorks" theme...with some added Bob's Burgers love! (Which I asked for!) It's perfect!

Thank you so much for swapping with me bywilma!

6  Recent work: Pillow and TM Patches in Needlework: Completed Projects by fatewineroses on: August 29, 2017 12:14:24 PM
It's been a while since I've posted any new work. I've done a couple of things.

First off, I did this pillow for coycasket in the Femininity and Diversity Swap. I also did a TM Patch (her first!) but I don't have a good pic of that.

If you ever think you can't make a fantastic piece without knowing a bunch of stitches...this piece was done with about 95% backstitch. Only other stitches that might have been used (my mind is like cheesecloth) are French knots and stem stitch. The content (a naked person) was well outside of my normal comfort zone of what I should be stitching; so it was sort of a guilty pleasure stitching on the train. Grin

Now some TM patches!

This one was made for a horoscope theme. My sign is Cancer, so I decided to do that. I found this quote and loved it; but decided to add on the constellation over it. The constellation portion is done in glow in the dark thread! The fabric I chose I thought was appropriate. The water backing and the red for ruby, Cancer's birthstone. I apologize if the colors are super bright. I couldn't seem to tone them down for some reason.

This theme was monochrome. I found a kinda simple mandala and decided to use multiple colors and as many stitches as I could. In the end I used five different colors of red and I think it was eleven different stitches. It might have been more. I don't remember. I should have written it down! In the end, I really love how it turned out. Except the border. I wish I had done something different with the border. I found it very distracting.

This is way brighter that is actually is. The first pic is more indicative of the colors.

My other partner asked for a patch using the "Nevertheless, she persisted" quote. I've seen a lot of work using this quote lately. I wanted to do something a little different. The figure in the middle is a tracing of the statue of the Fearless Girl that faces the huge bull in NYC. The quote it written in my handwriting. I really love how this one turned out.

Detail of edging. I went with a light pink and made circles (kind of like the roses on the fabric) all around the edges.

The last patch (for now) is based on the theme "MacKenzie-Childs." Now I had seen this designer before; but since it's not really my thing, I wasn't super familiar with it. While looking through images, I found a pillow that went for a whopping $300+!!  Shocked I kinda liked the look of it, so I decided to do something similar. It was my first time doing ribbon flowers. I also added a layer of material to get the red border. The border was stitched using black ONLY on black areas. Leaves were done in a fishbone stitch.

Close up

EDITED TO ADD close up pic of the Monochrome TM patch.

Oh! That Empress is impressive!  Grin Did you see what I did there?  Cheesy

I have also received from gala_apples!

She sent me patches for my Stranger Things and Unicorn themes. They might be some of the tiniest patches I have received! So cute!

I received from roler a couple days ago and am finally getting around to posting. I apologize for keeping them to myself for so long.

As usual, roler knocked it out of the park! While Kermit really makes me smile; I admit that the Stranger Things makes me super happy. (Quick plug for the upcoming Stranger Things Swap, Rd 2 coming up soon!!!) Baymax is a favorite of mine and I am always happy to get something with him. And bees always make me feel warm like summertime when I see them buzzing about.

Many thanks roler!!!!

9  Stranger Things Swap, Round 2 in New Swap Theme Ideas by fatewineroses on: August 01, 2017 09:40:39 AM

I think that a bunch of us who did the first round, and some that were not able to participate last round, were interested in a second round to get us in the MOOOOOD for SEASON TWO.

WHAT SAY YOU!?!?!?!?!

My envisioned timeline would be:

SIGN UPS the week of 5 September,
CRAFTING between 15 Sep through the week of October 9th
SEND OUTS 13th of October

This swap would be for a MEDIUM and a SMALL.

This should be a generous crafting time AND for everyone to get their goodies before the start of Season Two.

I absolutely LOVE the spoiling going on. Just fabulous! That Frida shirt is the bomb. Swapping with Jennie since getting her Silhouette is obviously the thing to do.  Grin Cause look at that Frida shirt and that tote bag!!! I'm in love!

But let me tell you...before I read what Jennie said about the first hoop from kittykill I said to myself, "That is SO Jennie!!!" And I might have teared up reading about the last hoop. I LOVE that we are so good to each other. I really, truly love this community so much.

Coycasket is my partner and she sent me the coolest stuff ya'll!!! I have a pretty standard list that I use when I am filling out questionnaires. Things that I have been wanting or know I will certainly use. A coffee cup cozy has been on there FOREVER because, like many makers I have a list of brainstormed ideas; but can never settle on making one for myself. So when I was reading the note and she mentioned a cup cozy...I practically RIPPED the package open!!!! I LOVE IT SO VERY MUCH!!!

She also made me this awesome pouch in some of my favorite colors. I didn't immediately know what I was going to use this for; but I love having pouches around.

And I JUST realized that I forgot to take a picture of the small piece of artwork she made for me.  Undecided I will take picture later and post.

Thank you so much for swapping with me coycasket! I love everything!
