Sing along with me gals "Yummy yummy yummy..."  Hmm, never mind.  Here take a look at my awesome new yarn

340yards of merino goodness.  Drool worthy?  Yes!   Grin  I got a bonus too, knit themed notecards, so thoughtful.

A close up so you can see all the colours.

I took my new skein along this morning on my train ride to work.  I have been showing it off to all and sundry.  Cheesy

Thanks for spinning me the most awesome skein RecycleMicol  Kiss  I'm off to catch up on your blog now I can look.

Everyone was a little creeped out by the organs.  I always have breakfast with work buddies on a Friday morning before we hit the office.  I usually craft at the table, it is the norm.  But the day I was working on the organs, I got impression that maybe stitching brains at the table was a little too weird.   Tongue

Glad you have the other two organs Selise.  Did they actually arrive before the rest of the package as intended?  I didn't want to mention them directly earlier.  Just in case they had not yet arrived.
I'll try to find where I hid the pic of them too.  What do you think you'll do with them?

*edit*  I found it!
Stomach and lungs, why of course.

Here it is folks.  This is what I sent to Selise.
A DNA cable neck warmer, kilt pin, handkerchief, button magnets and felt organ stuffies.

the neckwarmer laid out so you can see the DNA, sorry this was taken when I was blocking, but it is the only good pic I got that really shows up the textures

kilt pin with skull, gun and handcuffs charms, also this shows the neckwarmer colour accurately, the previous pic doesn't

handkerchief featuring my thumbprint, oops sorry  Wink

set of Grissom button magnets; thoughtful, serious and contemplative

lil' stuffies, a heart and a brain, as anatomically correct as i could achieve in around 2 inches

Thanks for being patient with me Selise, I was a slow angel, but I tried to make sure it was worth it.  Is that all of it Selise?

Done!   Grin

I am pleased with the result, so much so I wore it in the office today.  I could use better action shots though.   Embarrassed

Well, I have made my decision.  I am knitting as per the pattern (well, with barely any mods that is) for my first attempt.  Next time I will knit in the round.  I am happy with my swatches and wanna share 'em.  I know swatches are boring but I am nervous about my yarn choices.

Yup, I am using two yarns.  Mostly because this is a stashbusting effort on my part.  That and I just don't think thick/thin multicoloured yarns look good in ribbing.  So I decided to use a second yarn for my ribbing, besides  didn't have enough of either yarn to use them on their own.  They are made by the same company, so at least I got a good colour match, not that you would think so to look at the picture.  Always the way  Roll Eyes  Fashion wise, I am brave and I do realize this combo is pretty loud.  my concern is more technical at this stage, will it work?  I cannot see any reason why not, erm, yet.  I'll keep you all posted (I'm casting on this minute) either way, but does anyone have any thoughts, advice?

26  Re: Tea Time Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Miss_Vicki on: March 05, 2007 09:39:41 PM
Here ya go folks.  Pictures as promised.

Told ya there was heaps, this is everything.  Tongue

Collon Creme biscuits, Japanese chocolate mushroom biscuits, Japanese green tea, Bubble tea straws, huge hand-sewn handbag/craft tote, address lables, pen, romantic cookie cutters, Mr Clean Magic Eraser, Card featuring green tea ice-cream, Reese's Snack Bar, 2 hanks of tea stained cotton yarn (hibiscus and black tea), Milky lollies, small zippered and lined pouch (in cute Spiderman fabric), bright balloon plastic buttons, ho air balloon enamel/metal button, tea cup buttons, drawstring pouch in pink kimono(?) fabric, Bombay Chai tea box, Japanese lollies (fruit jelly beans, sherbet, grape and choc marbles), handmade tea scented soaps and a travel tea wallet (matches the tote) with a selection of teas inside.

Am I one lucky Craftster or what guys?  Grin Grin Grin

Now the only thing missing from this pic is one of the soaps.  It is there but it doesn't photograph well.  It is a skull shape (black tea scented dontcha know Cheesy) and is sitting just above the rectangular soap, the chamomile one (which by the way has made everything in the package smell loverly too).  See him, just to the right of the embroidery on the tote.  Did I tell you all the tote was personalized?  Well, it is.  Squint some more and you can see that the dots on the 'i's are tea cups.  It is soo sweet.  Toldya i was lucky.  Kiss

Lots of close ups for drooling over, next post, I promise.

**edited to add more pictures**

This is the tea cup detail stitched into the humongous tote.

These are my tea scented soaps.  Now you can see the black tea skully one.  I wish you could all sniff 'em, but that could be weird anyhow, there IS a lot of you.  Cheesy

Of course, the infamous Collon creme biscuits.  They are not scary guys, these thinks are very yummy indeed.  That is why they are all gone!  Wish me luck, I am going to try to find some locally tomorrow.  I always love the packaging on Japanese treats.  They are always so detailed and pretty, even the insides of the boxes are decorated.

Thanks Lady Llanalla for spoilling me rotten.

That's right Detritus, it knits up very fast too.  Well I have finished mine twice so far.  Due to silly mistakes, I first made mine too large, then too small.  Here is a picture of the too-small version anyhow.

That is Giant Man modeling for me.  Cheesy  You can't see it too well in that pic, but I had hoped to show the tiny triangle that is on the back, because I hadn't seen any pics of it anywhere.  I didn't realize it would be lacy too, but I like it.  I didn't work the picot edging on that one.  It looks nice but I prefer a smoother look on the band.  This is what it looked like with it on.

I have decided I'll be using some pale purple underwear leg type elastic on this when I am done.  In place of the silk ribbon that is.  No bow, just flat.  I figure it will compensate for any lack of stretch caused by substituting cotton for the silk.  Not that I have ever used silk, but I imagine it to be stretchy.

I received an angel package from Quincy134.  It rocks!  I had only a few minutes to snap a couple of pics this morning because the package arrived as I was leaving for work.  I will take much better ones (and action pics) shortly.  For now, a shot of the whole lot.

Now, most stuff in this shot is too small, you just can't see it.  But I believe you can see the big item really well.  A pink tee featuring none other than the fabulous Black Cat, of course.   Grin  Also pictured, are three magnets (Beast, Scarlet Witch and Magneto), two button badges (one Marvel and one Vertigo) and a Black Cat wrist cuff (which fits well, yeah Smiley).

Luck me,  also got a bonus copy of Interweave Knits, it is hard to get around here at times.  I certainly have not seen this issue around yet.  I had really wanted to get my mitts on this too.  However did you know Quincy134?  Methinks I must have been caught ranting about the state of needle arts in Oz.   Embarrassed  Whoops, sorry folks.

29  Re: My user name on a polo shirt (3 pics) in Needlework: Completed Projects by Miss_Vicki on: January 29, 2007 08:07:40 PM
I bought myself some dancing shoes Yesterday.  Now this model shoe comes with a variety of different embroidered motifs on it (dice, skulls with bows, cherries, that kind of stuff), but only plain ones were available in my size.  Heh heh, no problem.  I couldn't help it, they had to get the same treatment.  You can see it really is not my fault. 

So I have finished with the right shoe, it has a yarn ball and needles (as you can well see), with a trail of yarn that ends at the heel.  I am unsure just what I should put on the left shoe, if anything at all.  I'm thinking perhaps, just a 'V' with a shorter tail of 'yarn'.

30  My buttons suck, but I really love them. My 1st poly clay. in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Miss_Vicki on: January 22, 2007 11:48:36 PM
OK, I know these babies are about as far from professional as I could have made them, but I love 'em.  I had a lot of leftover pink swirly clay after making some err, stuff (that I can't show yet, it is for a swap).  So, I made these.  I know I could have stored it for later, but I wanted to experiment.

I'll be using these in a decorative capacity only.  But don't worry, I have some of Dianne B's button info bookmarked for future reference. One day I'll make 'proper' buttons.   Grin  But for now, these are fun.
