1  Re: MYB Round 15 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by knitpurl on: December 14, 2011 05:15:18 PM
Thanks for organising this swap Oyhana. Smiley

I received a gorgeous MYB from bubblegum_phoenix a couple of weeks ago now... (it feels like a month ago; I've had to move a bit unexpectedly and had a few other life things going on). I'm so sorry to have taken so long to post pictures and I hope bubblegum_phoenix doesn't think I am being ungrateful - I loved everything.

Here is the box when I first opened it, with a very cute penguin ami guarding it Cheesy

A doctor who owl necklace which I've been wearing a lot. I've been getting heaps of compliments on it, ranging from "wow, isn't that cute" from people who have never watched the new Doctor Who, to incredibly high-pitched squees from some of my friends.

Some more of the contents -- a felt phone cozy; moisturiser and body wash; a mini sheep hoopla; a wind chime; coasters with New Zealand birds on them; also a bead necklace which is hidden under the coasters.

Close up of the hoopla (with little sheep made of french knots):

Here is a picture of everything (except for a pair of crocheted slippers which I forgot I was wearing, so had to photograph seperately). As well as the items already pictured there is a bubble blower; fridge magnets with different sayings on them (including "well behaved women rarely make history" Smiley); a little cross stitched frigde magnet with a china frame; a notepad with a tiki on it; a yellow star shaped washcloth; NZ magnetic poetry; a geisha doll which turns into a little electric fan; a really pretty mug; and the yarn - which is a really soft wool, alpaca and possum blend.

And last, but not least, the slippers, which are very comfy, and useful, cause even though it's going into summer here, it has been a bit chilly at night. Smiley (and sorry about my ugly feet!)

Thanks so, so much bubblegum_phoenix, there was so much thought and skill that went into the handmade items. I'm looking forward to starting my mitts, and will let you know how the yarn goes!

Hi everyone,

I've been a really bad swapper - I was sick all of last week and haven't posted pics of the ATCs that I received from imera.

She sent 2, and they are really beautiful. The one on the left is for my Mexican folk art theme, which imera based on a design she saw on a vase once, and the one on the right is for my obscure fairy tales theme:

I was actually reading a book called 'Tender Morsels' when I received the cards, which is loosely based on the story of Rose Red and Snow White, only I hadn't realised it until I got imera's card and looked the story up. Smiley

Thanks so much imera, I love them!

Hi everyone,

NatACT has been having camera troubles (I sympathise - my camera was out of action for a couple of months and it drove me mad), so I'm posting pics from the angel package I sent.

Nat's chosen culture was Egypt, so I made her an Isis hoopla:

A fimo cartouche necklace (which I'm hoping spells NAT - I used a heiroglyphs-alphabet translation I found online):

And a senet board:

crazyda79's camera has broken, so I'm posting the ATC I sent her for her Shakespeare theme. The Tempest is my favourite Shakespeare and the card is made from collaged water colour washes.

Hey, I received an ATC from ragstostitches for my cats theme (And my knitting theme!)

It is very cute:

(Apologies for the squashed looking yarn ball - my camera is playing up, so I scanned it).

Thanks so much!

Hey everyone, sorry I have taken so long to post this - work has been really busy so I haven't had a chance to use the scanner there until this evening.

But here are a couple of ATCs I received a while ago. The first one is from muddy21 for obscure fairy tales - it is one of the dogs from 'The Tinderbox' (which is a Hans Christian Anderson story you can find here: http://hca.gilead.org.il/tinderbx.html) 'with eyes as big as saucers'.

And I received 2 cards from MargiePoo, the first is for my portraits theme:

And the second is an amazing extra of an elephant:

Thanks both of you and sorry I took so long to repond.

Oops, hit post instead of preview. I also received some other cards;

From crazyda79 for my autumn theme:

The background is a sort of foam material, not card, so it has a really unusual texture, which I like.

And from Mountains and Clouds, for my sea creatures theme, plus 2 beautiful extras:

They are all fantastic, thanks so much!

Hi everyone, I've taken a long time to post, since I was sick last week, and I use a scanner at work to scan ATCs.

I received this last week from Prophecy Draig. It's absolutely beautiful, for my cats and autumn theme (and it is her first ATC)!

I love it. (I have a couple of deciduous trees and bushes in yard, and my cat "helps" just like that. Smiley

She also made a card to send the ATC in, with an autum leaf on the front:

Thanks so much!
