SonjaBoo & geekgirl1000100 I am super envious of both your paper talents!

Look what kwality570 sent me... I love it all. The monsters are terrifyingly adorable, haha.

And that is the cutest tiniest skein of yarn I've ever seen. I'm giving that to my girl for her doll house, it's the perfect size.

Thank you for swapping!

3  Sweary stitch markers. Sorry. in Completed Projects by craftylittlemonkey on: February 20, 2018 07:32:31 PM
These are an item some people use for accuracy  or counting stitches or something like that when they are making stuff with yarn. I don't know, they are a mystery to me, a novice hooker who hasn't been properly shown the ropes I guess.
Anyhoo, I made this set for pottermouth in the recent Hookers Only swap based on the sort of thing I say under my breath (or shout outloud, let's be honest here) when I'm crocheting.

Packaged up in a deceptively adorkable little bundle, such a liar I am.

She has kids, I did include a warning.

4  Pass the Piggies! in Crochet: Completed Projects by craftylittlemonkey on: February 20, 2018 07:22:21 PM
Made for pottermouth in the recent Hookers Only swap.

I found this little treasure in her pins, little did I know the inadvertent inappropriateness I was about to create.

It got worse...

...before it got better...

One would never expect the mischief that lies within Cheesy

5  Positive Energy in Needlework: Completed Projects by craftylittlemonkey on: February 20, 2018 12:48:39 PM
Made for the Positive Affirmation swap and mounted using Ludi's terrific tutorial.

As I was stitching along I got to this point and wasn't sure it was going to come out very well. Much better with the bright colours added in, I was happy with how it turned around.

First off this funny card, ha ha Cheesy.

UNICORN! IT'S SO PRETTY I THINK I'M GONNA DIE!!! pottermouth you know I will have to fight the girl to keep this, right?

Even the lining is sparkly and fabulous!

RAINBOW! So perfect for me. It's like she knows me or something Wink.  It will live in my studio and cheer me every day.

Floofy washy things, should these be for dishes or faces? Either would work but they are too pretty for dishes I think.

I asked for scrap yarn because I love scraps and she sent me some balls of that and also this big skein of beautiful merino, I love it.

Then look at all this stuff! An ergonomic hook, a tunisian hook (this is on my list to buy, or Was on my list, yay!), an awesomely big tapestry needle, and the sweetest most lovely adorable amazing carrying case.

Oh, and a handful of pretty little stars. Now I will have to think up a project for them...

It's got everything! I am going to carry it around in my purse all the time, it's completely perfect for travel projects.

Thank you friend, this was so much fun to open and explore. You are the best!

SaraSmile's tin is just wonderful! Wow!

Yay, Wren, so glad it arrived and you like it Smiley.

I received two wonderful parcels today. First from gala_apples this set of awesome fridge magnets with different one word positive mini-statements on each. They are a firm but still sort of squishy material, I don't know what it is. It's great though because if the kids knock one off the fridge they seem like they will not break easily, maybe even bounce! There was also this nice love hearts square which I quite like, I must be the only person who thinks those things are tasty, ha ha.

And this, also a magnet (glad I put that on my Q!) from Acadian Driftwood, it is tiny and perfect. Look at the close up, how wonderful!

I feel like the lettering could be smoother, I will work on that. Practice makes perfect Smiley. The only part that I didn't love in this one were some needle holes around the flower where I changed my mind about stitches but they are barely visible and I didn't want to alter the flower dimensions once I started liking it's shape.

One tip about mounting on cardboard is to use a stiff enough piece. On another I framed like this I had to add a piece of felt to the back and insert another oval of cardboard because the original one was starting to bend under the pressure.

Gluing 2 together with the ridges running in opposite directions might fix that in future. It's still my favourite, the end result looks great I think. I add a little sewn loop to the back for hanging too, like this one.

They never look great but every now and then all of a sudden my nails are all too long to be comfortable and need a trim. Just highlights how long I can go without paying any attention to myself, lol.

T-shirt duvet cover from our old shirts, so happy to knock this one off the list! I used so much embroidery thread too, woo!

Still too much for me. You are a trooper! A quilt for everybody, even the cat.

Here's my version of quilting (I timed it this time, kbrison 103 minutes of pinning and stitching!):

And now everybody in my house has one of those.
