I got my AMAZING swap package from Shablina this morning.  I love everything she sent and now have a major case of anxiety!

First, Something Related to the Letter "M" and Something Local:

Orange Malabrigo Sock Yarn and some local silk and wool handspun she got from her LYS.

Something Purple and Something Recycled:

Two pretty purple dish clothes and a reusable grocery bag similar to one I had on my Wists.

Something Funny is two magic yarn balls wrapped in Minnesota Vikings colors (boo!  I'm a Green Bay Packer fan--born and raised in Wisconsin!).  The yarn isn't blue, it's a deep purple, my camera just didn't do a good job capturing the color.  Before:


Something Dotted:

Water bottle

Something Hard is a blanket for my Chihuahua, Saffron:

Saffy, examining her new blanket, and:

super cute shot of Saffy enjoying her blanket.

Last, but not least is Sender's Choice.  My favorite item, a gorgeous felted bag:

Thank you so much!!!!!  I love everything!

2  Copper bowl and stand in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by TwistedRedhead on: April 14, 2008 04:25:25 PM
I am such a loser as it has been about a million years since I have posted on Craftster....

Anyway, I have been taking a metalsmithing class and have been making all sorts of cool houseware type thingies.  Right now I only have photos of the copper bowl that I made.

This bowl started out as a flat disc which I then heated up with a torch to make the metal easier to work with, I then shaped it with a couple of different hammers and finally, I took two hours to planish the entire bowl to strengthen it and make the shape more permanent.  The base that I started with was waaaaay too big, so my husband helped me by cutting it down by half.  Once I finished shaping the base, it was strapped onto the bottom of the bowl with wire and soldered together with two torches.  I then spent a good amount of time shining it up and waxing it to keep it from tarnishing.

Formed bowl:

Base before it was cut down:

All finished!

Hope you like!

5  Howdy Ho! Y'all smell so nice and flowery! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by TwistedRedhead on: December 10, 2007 08:20:57 AM
It's Mr. Hankey!  I made this for my husband who loves South Park.  I didn't use a pattern, I just sort of made it up as I went along.  The face was the hardest.  I am not much of a sewer.  I had to make four different faces before I got it right.  The arms are seed beads strung on wire.

I received yesterday from one of the best swap partners EVER!!  Thank you so much Jennyleigh.  I absolutely love everything you sent me.  I have lots of pictures, just to warn you.

My AWESOME apron.  Tons of pockets and it has my name on it!

Crazy hat (and not the best picture of me.   Sad )

Matching wristwarmer:

Pretty Christmas bag:

Neck scarves and a stocking full of treats for my little Jesus:

Fluffy Scarf:

Yarn, beads, scrap paper, cupcake cups, Harley stickers (I am a biker chick!) and a needle book.  I forgot to take a picture of the gingerbread candle.  But it smells yummy.

Thanks for organizing TAOJ and thanks for a wonderful package, Jennyleigh (Leigh is my middle name).  I can't wait to see everyone else's packages.

I got my package from crumpet13 today!  Yippee Skippy!

Here we go:

Everything together

My favorite section of the Feminist Activity Book (I love the whole thing, actually!)

Cool brown handbag

Rosie the Riveter magnet and bad-ass pink ninja necklace

Yummy smelling cologne and lip gloss:

Books and photos of Liz Phair and Margaret Sanger (birth control pioneer-one of my heroes) and condoms.  They'd be more feminist if they were ribbed for my pleasure though.   Wink

Thanks crumpet13!  I feel more empowered all ready!

9  Amigurumi Chihuahua in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by TwistedRedhead on: September 21, 2007 09:55:37 AM
My husband recently spent days making me a pirate costume for a party we went to.  To thank him, I made him an amigurumi chihuahua for his desk at work.  I got the pattern here: http://katcrochet.com/chi.htm

I haven't come up with a name for him yet.  Side view:

Jesus with his new brother:

This is my first amigurumi project and I am very happy with how he turned out.  Enjoy!

10  Pirates forever! Complete w/photos in Halloween Costumes by TwistedRedhead on: September 16, 2007 07:17:56 PM
My husband has mad sewing skillz yo.  Me, not so much.  We were invited to a Pirate party last night and he completed our costumes at the last minute.  They look fabulous, except now we have to be pirates for every other event in the future because I can't tolerate the amount of swearing that went into these costumes.  Also, my husband doesn't like sewing all that much.  The consolation?  We won best costumes!

Here's full length:   

My husband used to do historical reenactments, so the leather overcoat and shirt were already made (by him).  His pants are linen and he added turn downs to his motorcycle boots to make them look like bucket boots.  All of my costume was made this week.  We just used linen and home decor/upholstery fabric.  The fabric for my skirt was gorgeous.  Lucky for me it was originally $20/yard but on clearance for $5.  I did all the eyelets for the bodice.  He made everything without patterns.  Like I said, mad skillz on that boy...

Better picture of the tops of the outfits:

The flintlock pistols are real and were a huge hit at the party.  Everyone posed for photos with them.
