Okay, this round I'm the rotten partner Cry I didn't post and I haven't sent yet.

Gomerriffic & miss_k sent me the most wonderful packages, both arrived the same day, and hubby brought them to me to cheer me. And they are really so much better than the pics show!


miss_k posted her package here:

The bag is sewn so perfectly. It holds way more than I expected and is great!

Here is a close up of the covered buttons she made, which are GORGEOUS!

And miss_k worried that the slip in pockets were too small, so here is the picture of the pocket holding my book & calendar! See it all fits! Thank you!

And the zippered pocket holds my business cards (in the proper holder, thank you!) and my stash of makeup, hand sanitizer and other goodies. It is HUGE so I tried to show the size by comparison with my hand.

Don't forget the great envelopes - a dozen! Will get used only on my favorite people!

Thank you so much for the purse & envelopes miss_k, I totally LOVE it!

Gomerriffic chose items from my wists, and all were surprises for me!

This is my gypsy purse, and Gomerriffic did an outstanding job, it is so wonderful. It is going to be my "go to weddings purse" and for all the special occasions in my life! Handmade ribbon rose, hand stitching, laces, pearl handle, so many little details! It is hard to describe, but I'm trying not to be
"speechless" in my delight! OH thank you so much!

next, to match? or not? a silver ribbon & pearl necklace. this is so co-incidental. The designer/manufacturer of that wire ribbon hired me to make saleable products for his ribbon and wire! I'm working on them after I finish this swap! Gorgeous job!

If this were not enough, a noisy bracelet! Wow!!! this is gorgeous, too.

Gomerriffic knows I love rubber stamps and carved me a koi! exquisite! Then she stamped and cut out tags and added paper cards/envelopes!

And for my other paper cards/stuff a tiny alphabet! -- These are so hard to find, so whenever I find them, I grab them! I just got 12 from ornamentea.com, but guess what? NO DUPLICATES! THIS IS NOTHING LIKE ANY OF MY OTHER ALPHABETS!!! Good job Gomerrriffic!

Okay, have to admit, I added these owls to my wist to make for another partner, and never did. I just wanted to remember where the pattern was. But Gomerriffic made them for me, and now that I have them, I love them. They sitting right next to my hugable hedgehog from javede. Look at how perfect they are:

And on my profile, it says that I want to learn polyclay. I have to tell you the truth, although I do, my hubby made me promise "NO NEW CRAFTS." And polyclay is a "new craft" unrelated to fiber. So there was a bit of a miff, but when I said this is "fiber-clay." We both giggled. And once the clay is used, then it won't take any more room, will it? <WINK> So Gomerriffic sent clay, a cutting blade and a roller! And I am going to have fun decorating some altoid tins that I have. (sorry G & m_k, you are going to get a few less in your package!)
Drum roll for the last picture. TA-DA!!!

Partners, I promise your packages are coming! Superhooker I'll take a sneak preview to show most of the goodies are finished! And partners, now I have definite swap anxiety!

Thank you both miss_k & Gomerriffic!!!
You did outstanding jobs on the packages!
I totally love them both!

Quiet weekend!

I won an ebay collection of vintage buttons, and created two necklaces, only 1.5 pts each:

Custom button necklaces can be white cotton with white buttons, ecru cotton with white buttons,  black cotton with white buttons, or white cotton with black buttons. I also have a lot of grey/silver button and a variegated white/grey cotton that I could do. I have a bunch of white buttons, black buttons, and multi-colored ones, if someone would like a necklace made with them.

I have a giant job that is going to take at least two months, so I have to close out of all my swaps by end of October. Please help me find the 3 points I need to close out. Will be back in January or February. (This swap is too addictive to stay away permanently, lol.)

Well, there are gobs of crafts involving fiber

Hence my 'problem'! 

Must have the same problem! Nice problem. My hubby said I could only have stash and supplies for ONE craft. He's thinking cross-stitch or knitting or spinning or sewing or paper card making.  But I said "fiber craft" which upsets him no end since it includes tatting, lacemaking, and so much. BUT I didn't do the lampwork beads I wanted, or the polyclay or metal working, gave up leather crafting, so I'm keeping my end of the deal!

Okay, in attempt to lure sales I've added another crafted item:

and more supplies:

javastain and I had a private swap.

April 2007 I sent java a deluxe felting kit with the book, "Fast Fun & Easy Needle Felting;" clover felting tool with 5 needles, extra needles, lots of roving, and some stencils (you use the stencil to guide the felting in a shape. There aren't any pictures, I spent the morning looking for the post.

Here's what javastain sent me (clickable thumbnails):

Here's an overview:

Inside there's some really soft roving, a set of pretty post-a-notes, and the yarn is balls of re-cycled yarn.

See the arrow?

Here's it is:

A closeup of the melted bead bracelet with glass beads embedded:

And an action shot!

Thank you, javastain!

okay, I'm spinning with a fancy cat handspinner and the yarn is a millimeter thick until I ply it. It is so hard and thin I wonder what the finish will be. Then I do a Navajo ply and it is so soooft and luscious that the craziness is worth it.

So look and enjoy, but sorry you cannot feel this yarn, it is so nice.

clickable thumbnails:

I don't know remember from which swap I got this roving, but I thought I was finished, and this morning found more. . .
ocean colors:

I shopped the swap and chose a 1 oz batt from lapoli called you and me on the sand. the aqua part spun really well, but the sand part had shortish fibers. So I carded bits of the sand into the aqua and the resulting fiber was just gorgeous.

ooooh! I forgot, the thread is Ultima Poly embroidery thread, just to add a bit of shine! I added it as I Navajo plied.

it reminds me of turquoise stone, and now I'm hoping to get more from lapoli!

And this is also spun teeny-tiny, overspun and hard, but when Navajo plied, it turned out super sooooooooft, too!

I'm loving, and envying all the yarn posted so far!
