Behold the beauty and the awesomeness that is Calluna

I received my first package!!

step into an introduction/scrapbook extraordinaire

Calluna has been so generous with me in sharing herself that I'm struggling to pick out the parts that are most amazing... here are just a couple as tasters
She included heaps of local pamphlets/maps/guides/ephemera from around where she lives now, memories of where she's come from and places she's travelled to.

And then there are pages like this one that are (more deeply?) about things that are important to her (and me!!).  I even got my very own hand carved stamp!

And there were cards!  I love the one that says "We usually don't get so dolled up for this, but drag is fun once in a while"... hehe

not to mention these goodies... (the calorimetry is passed on from another crafter to calluna to me, as is the fabric, the cd is an original with a dvd of ozomatli performing live.... can't wait to watch it!)

Leading up to the (as yet blank) book of rants.  Symbolising beautifully the tyranny of beauty.  How well the faceless woman covered in tape wih ther hands tied captures the constant struggle women face regardless of whether they fit stereotypes of beauty....

all leading up to this masterpiece of embroidery!!  If there is one image that would allow me to have hope rather than despair, this would be it.

Lots and lots of love and hugs and snuggles and admiration to calluna, thank you so much.

23  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap FOCR (Signups CLOSED, Sendouts 7/2/08) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by sin esperanza on: June 13, 2008 02:26:28 PM
I got approved!  I've been lurking for ages but finally decided to join.  There are so many things here I covet, and my 'best' is steadily getting better so I took courage!  I haven't been sewing for very long and am still quite impressed with myself when I get things right.  And I have learnt heaps from all the awesome people on craftster.  Enough rambling.  The point is that I'm offering a singlet style foldable grocery bag (thank you queenofdiy!!).

It is 20" by 11", 100% cotton fabric, lined with pretty brown/gold

folded up

unfolded so you can see the lining

Hope you like. x.

I love those socks Jenicat!

I received my final package from ohsweetie.  I'm amazed and excited but sad that it's over as well.  Anyhoo here is the loot all together: my very own artichoke knitted socks, the awesomest organic chocolate, a bath melt in citrus and sandalwood (my favourite scents), a bunch of stickers for a feminist gathering di is working on and a perfect altered romance novel notebook.  Love it, love it, love it all!

And a close up of the socks on my feet to show the perfection of the knitting and of course the fit

Thanks so much di, I absolutely loved being your partner and I'm sure we'll stay in touch. xx.

i love the colour of the lining!

oneredboot is snowed under with life and asked me to put up photos of what i sent her... a pair of button up leg warmers

the fleece has a spider web pattern and the buttons alternate between being round and square!  I also made her leaf fridge magnets in green and brown but I can't find a decent photo of them.  Sigh!
