Super cute!  You did your sushi like I did mine for a felt bento box I made - isn't fun to roll them up like that?
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Fill A Mug Swap Round 3 Gallery! on: February 06, 2009 09:01:11 AM
So I guess my partner never received  Undecided  but barbalot said I should post pics of what I sent anyway.

I didn't get pictures of everything and I handspun some yarn for my partner from coffee dyed roving which I can't find a picture of the finish object but here it is in it's dye bath.  It also had some swirls of dark brown and raspberry merino, thick thin and about 100 yards.  It was my medium sized project.  And it smelled like heaven after it was finished!  Hopefully I can find a finished pic somewhere  Huh

This was straight from her wists and it the chemical symbol for caffeine.  I made it from Shrinky and strung it on a SS chain.  This I was really proud of since it took a long time to cut all those two holes in the middle

This was also from her wists, a small bottle top pincushion and I made it into a cup-o-cocoa (also in one of her favorite colors)

And then I made her a to-go cozy with buttons (She loves a buttons!)

I didn't get all the goodies in a picture since I thought that she would be able to take one.  But I send her along a coffee mug from a local artist.  It had this beautiful deep brown glaze on it and was perfect for a cup of tea.  I also sent her her favorite cocoa (land-o-lakes mint chocolate) and a couple of sweets.  And I found some amazing loose-leaf teas at our local co-op so I sent her a variety.

Well, hopefully one day she still receives it - I would be just so bummed that I work on all of it for nothing.

You are a sweetheart (and a little bit of a superhero) for even attempting to write these up during this crazy busy time of year.  Make sure you are able to get all your other crafting done too! 

I had a dream the the other night that my family was wearing all food related hats for our holiday picture next year, I totally want to make it happen - wasn't there a pattern floating around for a turkey hat a while back?

ZOMG!  I can has pie hat?!? (can I express my excitement enough with lol speak?  I don't think I can!)

Although I normally know not to request a tute - I would just like it to be known that I second (or third) the earlier request.  My mother in law would positively love it!

Nothing to share this week but I am in love with !00% of all the yarns!  And I am happy to see more newbies (like moi) coming into the spinning obsession Smiley

I love that wall hanging t-dub, that tea pot is seriously cute.

As embarrassing as it is, I'm the nut that was still posting in the original thread, wondering where the heck everyone had gone to  Tongue Then it dawned on me (duh) that by this point there is a gallery and I'm missing out on viewing all the goodies!! LOL. This isn't even my first swap- I'm such a dork.  Roll Eyes

Don't be embarrassed at all because I have been lurking on the other thread thinking "where are all the pictures?"

*palm to forehead* can you tell I haven't done a swap in over a year and a half?

I love all the goodies so far!  I know mine will take some time to get to me but I am happy to wait.  I am just anxious for littlebluegirl to get hers *crossing fingers that she likes it*

I love that fabric! It looks great on too, but for the next one maybe make it so it falls just above your knees. It might be even more flattering that way.

P.S. I love those boots.

Excellent!  That is a great idea - I think I will make it that length next time.  And the boots are my favorite thing every, thrifted for only $6.50  Grin

Thanks for the kind words everyone  Cheesy

Cute Skirt!  Great Fabric!  I have been wanting that book so bad.  It looks like it'll be worth the investment, especially if you got that skirt done in a couple of hours!

I was hesitant on getting it at first because our local library doesn't carry it so I had never had a chance before to even look inside.  But I think it's such a great jumping point for making clothes that are totally fitted just for your measurements (I've never been good at normal patterns anyway  Grin )

I adore these - such amazing fabric!

I recently swapped for the book Sew What! Skirts and this is my first creation using the instructions!  It is the fitted top A-line skirt with a zipper.  I used some remnant fabric from Joann that I got for $2 (gotta love crazy chrysanthemum fabric) and the best part it that it only took my two hours this afternoon to make.

Side view

I think it seems like a flattering skirt (I am open to hearing if it's not since I wouldn't want to make fifty of them only to know I look horrible in it  Tongue ) - comments and critiques are welcome!
