Love all these! Not sure it's strictly "crafty" but it at least comes from an homage to "creative arts" so I figured I'd share mine:

It was done by my sister-in-law, who does amazing work.

Been MIA cause of vacation (and then post-vacation...stuff), but wanted to share the three lovely packages I received.

First was this lovely bag from TheSapphireMoon which worked PERFECTLY as a beach bag on my vacation (hence the delay in pics...wanted a shot of it in its "natural environment"

My friends on the trip were all uber-jealous of my bag.

Then there was this lovely cowl from Shablina:

I'm a big monochrome with a touch of red person so this is going to be perfect for me this fall....can't wait til the weather starts to cool a bit.

And last (but in NO way least), a really neat soft necklace and set of cards from cinnamon teal:

I love the necklace and the design on the cards is so intricate and just *pretty*.

Thanks so much girls!!

I've been a very bad stalkee since I received Sat and am just posting now....excuses are a visit from my mom and then post-vacation insanity at work and after. However, there's really no excuse for not publicly acknowledging the awesomeness that Pink-Josy sent me:

Here's the entire spread:

She's a wist-stalking maven as most of this stuff is straight off my wist and all of it couldn't be more perfect. (She'd posted a teaser image awhile back--now gone--that had me thinking "Hmmmm....kind of my color-scheme...wonder if she's my stalker. And sure enough...)

To get into the details a bit:

A plate right off my wist. Apparently her first attempt at painting. I know all of you are in as much awe as I am hearing that...

A tea box similar to one I'd wisted. I've already pulled all my tea supplies of their random shelves and have them all conveniently stored inside.

A dandelion mug...again....first attempts at painting.  Shocked Talk about talent  Grin

Some fun die-cuts for my own crafting purposes....you'd think she'd caught on to my fav color scheme or something  Wink

Coasters made from old LPs (as my mom said when she saw those "[my] father would just die if he saw that"--a little to reverent of vinyl to condone this, but I love them) and a poptab bracelet that is right up my alley.

Anyway, thanks again Pink-Josy! This was a killer package!

So fusbdgt is having camera issues and asked me to post the pics I took of what I sent (so if I'm on anybody's suspected stalker list, time to cross me off  Grin)

Anyway, here's everything all together:

She'd asked for a needle book in her questionnaire so I made a cathedral quilt-style one:

She'd also mentioned the need of a cell-phone bag and had a good pattern saved somewhere (I think on here Ravelry favs?) so I made this:

Then she requested earrings, and I just wanted to make her some stuff so I made this jewelry set:

And this pendant:

And for the large, she'd wisted and faved an entrelac scarf that I'd also faved awhile back, so I tried my hand at making one:

Here's a bit of a close-up:

Anyway, I had a ball crafting for her....gotta love the sneaky detective swap!

6  My first Entrelac--A scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by taerowyn on: May 14, 2009 08:41:33 PM
I've been eyeing tragicheroine's entrelac scarf for forever, so when I got a swap partner who had it both wisted and faved, I had to give it a try...

Everything they tell you about entrelac is true....it looks much more complicated than it is to do and the results are so worth it. Think the most important thing I was taught on this was how to knit backwards (i.e. so you don't have to turn). I can't imagine doing entrelac and having to turn as much as you would have to.

Anyway, thanks tragicheroine for the inspiration!

7  Warmer on the Inside -- Tardis knits! in Knitting: Completed Projects by taerowyn on: March 24, 2009 07:09:36 PM
Made thes for a Doctor Who and spinoffs swap. A Tardis hat and Tardis fingerless gloves:

It was my first foray into intarsia/fair isle....seemed to go pretty well all things considered.

Here's a close-up of the gloves:

Got the pattern for the hat here and cobbled together a pattern for the gloves from this post.

8  Torchwood T (as in shirt, not the logo) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by taerowyn on: March 24, 2009 07:06:18 PM
Made this for a Doctor Who and spinoffs swap:

Was having a bit of an issue with the border, was going to be thin...then it splooged a bit, so I made it thicker and splooged again. Figured I should quit there before the border took over the whole shirt. Still, think it turned out pretty well overall, I just need to learn to be more patient and a little lighter on the paint.:

So, like I said in the other thread, came back from vacation to a package waiting for me...what was inside? ckchan's adorable little lovebug and garden!

I've started quite a little amigurumi collection in my library so these made a happy addition to my shelves:

Thanks ckchan!
