Check out the lovely items that were sent by Amanelle Cheesy

After the plaid pants incident, I decided to let Kaia have first dibs on the swap items!  She picked the pants and the pretty blue skirt (top was made by nxtdrgrrl).  Oh my.  What a perfect fit!  

Saffy ended up with a Fashion Fever top and the iris scarf!  She is extremely pleased with her new clothes.  True to her nature, she insisted on wearing the top as a mini dress Roll Eyes  

Amanelle, thanks for everything!!!

nxtdrgrrl totally spoiled my girls with the wonderful outfits she sent Cheesy

Kaia was thrilled with her girly outfit!  The colours are perfect for her Smiley  The skirt, top and wrap are really well-made!

Saffy adores her new outfit (btw, Kaia tried them on, but being an ADG, she couldn't fit her caboose in it Wink).  The knitted top complements her hair, and she loves her hat Grin

Thanks for being an awesome swap partner, nxtdrgrrl!!

If you're interested in knitting a cupcake, here's another cool pattern Smiley


I made one recently for a friend, and here's what mine looked like:

The dimensions are pretty darn close to that of an actual cupcake!

I did a personal swap with Tia Cherry in late October and here are the fabulous goodies she sent my way!  In addition to crafts, we also traded snack foods Smiley    

What's in the cute little drawstring pouch?  Cool beaded jewelry in some of my favourite colours!

Tia Cherry, thanks for a fantastic personal swap!!

Ya'll are gonna be so jealous when you see the wonderful things that atsuko crafted for me!  She offered to make me a couple of pairs of earrings in exchange for a couple of pantas.  Obviously, that didn't happen Roll Eyes  In addition to two pairs of awesome dangly earrings, she also made me a gorgeous beaded butterfly necklace Shocked  Note how she made them in various shades of purple!  She did that because amethyst is my birthstone Cheesy  Her workmanship is impeccable Smiley  I could never do such intricate work!  

Ah, but there's more Smiley  atsuko also spoiled my girls Kaia and Saffy by sending them some new frocks Smiley  I haven't really decided how to divvy up the dresses, but I know the girls will be thrilled to bits Smiley  Oh, and matching headbands too!      

Last but not least, atsuko also included a bunch of fabric and candy!!  I'm not quite sure how she managed to find me some fabric that I don't already have in my stash, but she gets top marks for that!  She also gets bonus points for the candy.  In our conversations, I mentioned that I grew up on Smarties (sorta like M&Ms) and I missed them.  Voila!  They appeared in my swap package Smiley  

atsuko, thanks for all the wonderful items you crafted and/or included in my swap package Kiss  I love it all, and I really appreciate the time and care you took in crafting the wonderful earrings and necklace!

I did a personal swap with the lovely Melesse in September Smiley  She requested a couple of pantas, and in return, she sent me a surprise!!  Check out the gorgeous crocheted bags.  The blue bag is a drawstring pouch, while the colourful bobble stitch number is a zippered pouch!  To top it off, she also fed my fabric addiction Shocked  I love the lush burgundy velvet and gold brocade pieces!  Melesse, thanks for the wonderful personal swap experience  Kiss

429  Re: Magic Yarn Ball Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by loves2experiment on: September 01, 2006 08:59:19 PM
I received a yarn ball from my partner, redheadskydiver, this evening Smiley  She sent me a skein of Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool to make Knitty's Branching Out scarf!  It's perfect!  Here's a picture of everything...fresh out of the manila envelope!

Being the impatient sort (and using the excuse that I already have way too many WIPs to start another project), I unravelled the yarn ball to find the goodies that are hidden within:

  • 2007 mini calendar with a tiny carabiner
  • foam stamps (whale, octopus and seahorse)
  • wood magnets (rabbit, cat, sheep, giraffe and pig)
  • stitch markers (purple beads and a cute turtle charm)
  • tape measure
  • hand mirror
  • pair of earrings with crocheted circles
  • cool microscope pendant
  • stickers

Thanks for everything, redheadskydiver!!

430  Thrifty Thursday Find - Polypropylene Yarn!!! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by loves2experiment on: July 06, 2006 07:03:26 PM
I found several skeins of polypropylene yarn at the thrift store.  Obviously, this was an impulse buy since I haven't a clue about what it's good for Roll Eyes  Has anyone ever used this type of yarn in a project?  I would love to hear suggestions on what I can do with this yarn!  Thanks!!

Here's a picture of the yarn in question:
