1  Re: Stranger Things Swap in The Swap Gallery by fatewineroses on: October 27, 2017 11:08:12 AM
I received a couple days ago but kept forgetting to take a pic so I could post.  Roll Eyes

Mariak sent me a cool 'Friends Don't Lie' hoop and a ST cup cozy! I really love them both! I indulge in a cuppa a couple times a week and get mine extra hot. So a cup cozy is a requirement! I love the teeny tiny stitches on it and the Under Cover fandom. Thanks so much Mariak!!

She also sent some sweet treats...which only survived because I had just bought cake!  Grin

And with that...WE DID IT! I wasn't sure we were going to be able to pull it off; but we got it done and out and received all before Season Two dropped! I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to watching AT LEAST one episode tonight! Sadly, I don't have enough time to binge watch it all tonight; but next week I think I will try and watch an episode every time I run on the treadmill!

Let's do this again for Season THREE! Thanks for swapping with me ladies! I'll see you in the UPSIDE DOWN!

2  Stranger Things Keyring in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by fatewineroses on: October 23, 2017 12:46:45 PM
My first try at stamping. I made this for my partner in the just finishing up Stranger Things swap.
I did *not* make the waffle. It was purchased.

3  Stranger Things LED Hoop in Needlework: Completed Projects by fatewineroses on: October 23, 2017 12:44:40 PM
So. If you are a Stranger Things fan, Christmas lights have new meaning to you. And if you didn't know it, we are finishing up a Stranger Things swap, just in time to enjoy our goodies for the season two drop this Friday! THIS FRIDAY!!! OH EM GEE!!! Shocked

Okay. Sorry. I had a moment there.

After getting my partner's questionnaire, I did some stalking and got it in my head to do a hoop and a keychain.

I originally was going to try and do the wall alphabet; but it was cost inefficient. Most of the small light strings in the stores come in weird numbers. Having multiple strings would be inefficient and heavy. So I decided to go for the scene where Joyce is talking to the string of lights in her hand. Originally I was trying to make my own drawing from a picture; but I'm not very artistically inclined. It just wasn't working with what I had. As I was finishing up the planning for this I *almost* switched to another topic; but then I found this drawing. I'm disappointed in myself because I don't remember where I got it. I usually like to give credit. It was simple enough though and I knew it would work perfectly.

- Using my handy dandy coupon for Michael's, I purchased the lights.
- Did the embroidery using a simple backstitch and some stem stitch.
- I cut my excess fabric to trim so I could finish the hoop.
- I carefully used white craft glue to finish off the hoop. (not always my preferred method; but I wanted it to not move at all)
- I carefully used my seam ripper to cut small holes in the fabric. Note for anyone that wants to do this down the line: Interface the portion you will be putting the lights on before cutting the holes. I didn't think to do that but probably should have.
- I used Fray Check on each hole to prevent further ripping or fraying of the fabric.
- I then stuck the lights through the hole, held it in place and glued with fast drying fabric glue. You could probaby use Goop or E6000 for this as well if you wanted to.
- After all of the glue was dry, I used black thread to tack down the excess wire.
- I used Goop glue to firm attach the on/off switch to the bottom back of the hoop/fabric.

The back is an absolute nightmare. I think I took a picture; but it made me flinch, so I deleted it. Roll Eyes

It sounds like my partner liked it. I hope you guys like it as well.

Not lit.

5  Re: Felt Twinchie Swap Round 3 - Sign up until 31st August Send out 30th September in The Swap Gallery by fatewineroses on: October 16, 2017 02:28:12 PM
I haven't commented hardly at all this round and I apologize. That bat though. Cutest bat ev-ah! There are so many good twinchies this round!

For instance, look at what Witty-Child sent to me! The Muppets always make my heart beat faster! Miss Piggy would bonk me on the head for this; but Beaker is my favorite!!! But can you see her pearls? She looks FABULOUS! I love them all! (Beakers' still my favorite!)

I was finally able to make it to my post office box to pick up some swap stuff. Homerof2 sent me this lovely bright mug rug with my Harry Potter theme! Super cute and just the perfect size to fit on the left hand side of my desk...where everything goes, cause I'm left handed!

Thank you so much for a wonderful addition to my desk! And for being incredibly patient with my tardiness!

Thank you to Acadian Driftwood for organizing!

7  Re: Yet Another TM Patch Swap R9 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by fatewineroses on: September 19, 2017 10:38:27 AM
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!
