Oh dear, I seem to have killed the swap! Sorry! I added some more ideas to my original post -

Hope that helps!
I claim Pink Dinosaur for the Thanksgiving Scarf. This my FIRST wish! Yay! I'm in Minnesota

Here are my wishes:

Arm warmers ( thin and dark and solid colored for work...my dream is black pointelle, but anything thinish and soft and rather long, OR fun ones for at home) These are the ideal, if only they weren't pink! http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/shopping/product/detailmain.jsp?itemID=9748&itemType=PRODUCT&iMainCat=77&iSubCat=555&iProductID=9748

A Hat: I love this one https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57584.0
             Or a kitty hat (black w/ pink inside ears or just black) knit, fleece, or whatever
             Or a Chicken Viking hat (just cause I laugh every time I see it! I could see it becoming the official    Thanksgiving Chef's Hat!) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21342.0
             Or a Panta (any color but I'd be your best friend it was green)
             Or a Hallowig from Knitty (!)
             Or a baby Yoda hat for my nephew (who isn't quite born yet)

A kimono fabric hobo bag like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56519.0 (I am in LOVE with the indigo/orange one!)

Or the necktie schoolbag (I love the burgundy/black/grey/paisley colored one but any colors will work)

Vintagey/kitschy embroidered or appliqued kitchen towels (fawns, mermaids, pinups, swallows, mexicana, cowgirls, pretty much anything from sublime stitching, my kitchen is green with accents in pink, orange,red, so anything will do!)

An embroidery for my bedroom, which is pink and gold; something sexy, maybe 1920's, art nouveau, vintage nude, Japanese cherry blossom, something pretty and glam (I saw a gorgeous Louise Brooks one on craftster https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=59537.0 ) or other decor items in that vein would be nice too!

Some kind of cute embroidery or other wall art for my bathroom, which is kind of a modern take on shabby chic, in light blue and white: a mermaid or nude maybe?

Porn by numbers

Something vintagey looking for my kitchen that says "I'm not a fast cook. I'm not a slow cook. I'm a half-fast cook" with maybe a 1950's housewife image.

Something Omiyage

Ok, if these are too labor intensive I can add to the list. I don't embroider and it looks hard so the embroidery folks can tell me if I'm being too demanding! I don't want to be a swap diva!  Wink   


Ok, here are some more ideas!

Something Day of the Dead or Loteria inspired (tis the season)

A stuffed black squirrel, either in the style of those felt monster/kitty type toys or amigurumi. I never saw a black squirrel till I moved here, but there's one on my street. His name is Jimmy. He refuses to be photographed.

a knitted uterus (cause...why not...) (especially one that could contain a heatable bag of seeds & lavender for crampish times)

the infamous lipstick girl cozy https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39172.0

monster slippers (size 8-9)

army bowl (ninjas would be even better...who doesn't need a bowl-o-ninjas?)

A cool microscope slide necklace (I'm learning to make these but haven't got it yet)

Something Bollywood related

A Gromit (knit, felt, anything) (Sean the sheep or Feathers McGraw would be fun too)

A bowl's worth of funny fruit (knit, crochet, felt, as long as it's kitschy)

Hope that helps!

That is beautiful! I love Louise Brooks and that 1920's style, so glamorous! The frame is perfect (even if it's cheap!)
6094  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: drumstick shadow box on: October 21, 2005 02:13:29 PM
You could wire them to the back. Either by drilling tiny holes, or by covering a peice of card that fits the frame in fabric (velvet?) and wiring them to that. Good luck!
6095  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Tell me about your Christmas Trees! on: October 19, 2005 01:08:10 PM
Growing up we had fake trees, so when I moved out I was a die-hard "real tree" fan. My best advice is that the stand they nail into the bottom of the tree is much easier to manage than the clamp on kind! Then I moved to the 3rd floor and got cats...now I have a vintage silver tree. I love it, and it's pretty enough (in a kitchy way) without ornaments, so if the cats knock it over I just set it back up. I'd like to get a vintage light wheel! My neighbors have a potted Norfolk Island Pine they use every year, it keeps getting bigger. She's a teacher and keeps it in her classroom during the year. I also used to have a "party pole" in my apartment, a long bamboo pole I hung horizontally from the ceiling and would decorate different ways. Sometimes it was my substitute Christmas Tree, I covered it in lights and tinsel and hung glittery snowflakes and icicles from it. It was pretty cool (I also decorated that pole for other parties and holidays, hence the name)

I'm also decorating my bathroom like a mad scientist's lab,

Take any appropriate sized fabric, (sheets, tapestries, fabric, tablecoths, whatever you like that fits your window)  hem any rough sides using stitch witch, and hang with clip on rings. Quick, easy, fun! You can also sew hems and/or tab tobs, cord tops as well.
6098  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Peacock Feathers Shawl (fiddlesticks) on: October 17, 2005 11:32:36 AM
I guess this has been said...for 5 pages worth...but, damn that's a beautiful shawl!!! I just got my first order from handpainted yarn (lace weight in brown berries). I may have to put down the knifty knitter and learn to knit properly! I hope someday to come close to your talent!
