Check out this awesome parcel of angel goodies, oh boy, how spoiled am I?
First off 3 incredible patches. Abbeeroad used strip piecing, strip weaving, reverse appliqu, and I'm pretty sure some rust dyed fabric she made herself.

These are mini works of art, look at the close ups, ACK! The little window is so precious, I love it.

The detail in all of them is just incrediballz!

And as if that wasn't enough that angel included a pile of extras including some dyed string, hand printed fabric and gelli papers. I think I'm going to use the gellis as backing in the cubbies of my trinket shelves, super special!

And then an EYEBALL TWINCHIE!!! Can you see the black on black lashes? Oh yeah, awesome.

Spoiled. Totally rotten. Heh.

Wallets are tricky, so much foldy fabric in a tiny space. You did a great job, that's a perfect wallet for a youngster.

I am learning if not how to read a crochet pattern at least how to fudge it. I saw these cute chickens online and figured out how to make them my way.

My daughter liked it very much so I made her one in colours she choose. I am not sure if it needs an eye or not, I do love a good googly Cheesy.

A third try. I'm thinking of writing the pattern out to share.

And another set of twinchies:

I am posting this as officially destashed from the UFO pile. It's as done as it's gonna get.

This dslite case was posted here in 2006 and I'm pretty sure I started one right away but it sat in my stash of UFOs for years and years waiting for a lining which I have accepted I am never going to give it, lol.

It's been so long I don't even remember what I was making this for. We are not gamers and I don't really know anybody who is and might appreciate this. I just thought it looked cool. I like nostalgia, what can I say?

See, no lining. I should stop being so neglectful and just glue some felt in there already.

I'm sure pictures or stories will be equally interesting, we all had a process in choosing our elements that I think would be a cool personal story to hear Smiley.
I am not very techy but I managed to use a few different fonts for the info side of my cards. Here's a little teaser pic:

Abbeeroad, you are a dear to send me an angel package. And just after you put it into the mail guess what arrived from RovingAnarchist? We live about 45 minutes away from each other so Canada post was having fun taking my mail on some sort of adventure, lol.

This lovely leafy patch in natural browns and a really cool bird in flight. Oh, and a cheeky tin of mints!

The colours in the sparkly thread are really gorgeous. I'm going to have to do something special with this.

Then all these extras!

Oh boy, this swap spoiled me. Thank you ALL!

I'm going to try to make it to the PO this morning. It's a long weekend here in Canada, Monday is Victoria day. Lots of things will be closed so shopping is maniacal here right now. We went to costco yesterday morning thinking that would be a good time, there were almost NO carts left to use. Brutal Tongue.

I've got so many projects to catch up commenting on, here goes:

Lindy's alien hoopla is super cute, my kids would adore that.
AIMR that's a very sweet little flower girl, I love how those tiny purple & yellow pansies look like squinched up faces.
TansyMay amazing costume, so accurate!
MT great job on the refinishing. So many of your projects are practical and useful with a unique creative twist. I'll bet your home is like a treasure hunt of cool things.
Mlsocci74 I always like hearing about your adventures with the boys. You guys do good things.
Bunny & Lindy love those retro PLs and the birds! Watercolour looks so nice but seems so hard to get right.
FreakieGeekie you've been making such tiny clothes, I can't imagine how you do it. My machine would eat the fabric right up, amazing work!

I finished a crocheted burger:

It made my hands ache but I'm working on some more food things now because they turn out so fun it's irresistible.

9  Burger! in Crochet: Completed Projects by craftylittlemonkey on: May 12, 2017 08:39:43 PM
I tried to follow the pattern for this sandwich from the book Amigurumi, super happy crochet cute by Elisabeth Doherty but meh, I ended up skimming & just making it up as I went. Thankfully crochet is pretty forgiving.

Not too shabby, my kids like it anyhow.

I'm using a giant hook!

The oval attempt failed & since I'm set on a bathmat I'm going to rig a loom. One of these days. Erm...
