1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: on: May 28, 2014 08:41:39 AM
I have a lot on my plate right now, but work wraps up in two weeks (seasonal worker) so if no one volunteers before then I will definitely get the ball rolling myself in the second or third week of June. Would crafting through July work for those interested so far?

Wow, what a long wait. Sending stuff overseas always is a bit of a gamble isn't it...

Wulf - love the cover. Makes me want to go tear pieces off the tree in my backyard  Smiley

-zoma-... Very dapper and beautifully made. The removable fist...what spawned thst thought? The sewing on that is wild.
As I was making him, my husband was grilling me on the theme, swap rules, etc... then he randomly said "He needs a giant robot hand or something" that made me laugh, so he got a giant robot hand. I had a back story growing in my head as I put Sir Manfred together: he lost a fight to a top hat wearing tyrannosaur, resulting in the need for a eye replacement (gear shaped monocle), and while he was having the surgery done was fitted with the robot hand to defend himself in future encounters. I was so close to stitching him up a little cane with a hidden dagger... but I was late as it was Sad

I'm glad you share my sense of humour Kochopia Smiley

No more fretting hoboe! it arrived minutes ago!

Here's Mr. NomNom. Hoboe said I was welcome to change the name, but the kids like it just fine!

Wait, here comes a surprise!

(red eyes due to crying fit, that ended suddenly when the postman stopped at the end of the driveway. Nothing like a little mail to brighten a day huh?)

Now the question is, has he eaten the bird? or is it his birdy friend that the keeps safe inside?

This is my 4yo getting artsy with the photos. Smiley

Hoboe also sent this awesome pencil roll - lovely soft brown leather on the outside - so nice in the hand.

and inside: filled with pencils - flowers and bees (I'm a gardener)

And hoboe was even so thoughtful to send me a pencil sharpener and erasers!
Not forgetting the snacks - there were fun sized Snickers and Almond Joys - I've never had Almond Joy before, so I'm hiding that one from the kids. Smiley

Thanks hoboe for an awesome package!

btw- this swap has spawned a love of critters for my kids - they've each made one so far, and they're both eagerly waiting till I say they can make another.

i've been procrastinating. Sad
put on some Doctor Who last night and finally got my butt in gear. hand stitching so I've got a few more hours in it and then send on Monday. Always the last minute with me.

but it's going to be worth it, promise!

Here is my wonderful book from MunLtStmpr:

The cover is wonderfully textured - both the paper, and the elements under the paper.

the book is filled with quotes - here are a few of my favourites:

"Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy." Kahil Gibram

"We write to taste life twice." Anais Nin
This one is on ribbon.


Fanned out: 7 signatures of 3 folios each. Lots of quotes for me to enjoy.

What a beautiful book, thanks again MunLtStmpr. I am going to treasure this!

I don't need a full tutorial - but please explain...
the bottom edge of the tablet back is sewn down, yes? and then the other side is kept up with velcro?
Is there a stiffener in the part that props up the tablet?
