1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Weekend Trick or Treat Swap 2019 Gallery on: October 28, 2019 11:28:08 AM
I received the most incredible package from chase_acow today!!  She sent a canvas bag with a black cat on it, which is perfect for me!  It's going to be my new project bag.  She sent fancy gummy bears, pumpkin spice caramels, and a tonne of other treats.  There was gloves and a mask, googly eyes, AND she made me gorgeous stuff from clay.  Stars, which I'm going to hang on my dining room window, and this beautiful shot glass with a haunted graveyard scene.  The details on the little tombstones are so cool!







Thanks so much for this awesome swap package, chase_acow!!!

Yup! Crocheted spiderweb. EvilRachel suggested scarf/shawl, but I'm going to add it to my spooky bookcase.  :  )

I'm so relieved that you like it!  And I tried to pick candy that you can't get there. Smiley

Those kebabs are amazing.  I'd attempt to make them for the kiddos in my life, but I feel fairly certain that one the candy was gone they'd be trying to skewer each other.

I cannot resist Halloween, so I just signed up for my first swap since 2012.  I'm so excited!
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crocheted Batman Underpants on: March 13, 2013 12:03:55 AM
A friend of mine recently found out that I crocheted, and asked me if I could make him some underpants.  He's going to Vegas with a bunch of guys, and thinks it will be a hilarious joke to come out of his room wearing them one day, pretending he didn't know anyone else was there.  I warned him that they'd be gappy, and he asked that I make them extra tight to really maximize the gross-out factor.  Haha.  

I didn't have any men's undies on hand to model them after, so I bought a pattern and used a Batman chart I found online



And of course I had to try them on......



I wasn't happy with the waistband, it didn't have any snap to it (once it stretched out, it stayed stretched out) and the flap made it really bulky.  If I ever make these again, I'll definitely modify that, but overall, it was a fun project that worked up really fast!

My apologies to his Vegas buddies.

I never did post pics of what I sent to boystress, so here it is:  A short-sleeved cardigan with a headband for the new baby, hats for baby and big sister, and a butterfly mobile.  I also sent some Dora crayons and colouring books.

I received my package from the most amazing angel of all time, Rhymesworange!!  My nephew, little Nickolas Christopher, was born 2 weeks ago, so the timing couldn't have been better.

First off, a quilt!!



My sister absolutely loves the colours, it looks so good in the nursery.

And then, as if that wasn't enough...



A crocheted viking hat, a knit cap with hand-made felt patch, and red converse booties!!  His auntie Rachel is a big Whovian nerd, so you'd better believe he'll be getting a little blue pinstripe suit when he grows into the shoes.



A triumphant fist-pump of delight over his cool new hat

Thank you so much, Rhymesworange, you totally spoiled Nickolas, and his momma and I are sososo grateful!!!

This board went so quiet!  Is anyone out there? 

I love, love, LOVE the Dr Who stuff!  I'd put that in my own room. Haha

I know my partner received some time ago, so I'll try to post pictures soon.  I took them with my mum's camera because mine was acting up, so I'll ask her to email them tomorrow.

Eeeek! I hope it doesn't take that long, or the baby will have outgrown her presents!
