1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Cupcake Swap Round 2 *ding ding* on: June 09, 2010 05:21:15 AM
I sat down this morning with my coffee and my swap package from eye_on_sparrow and finally took some pictures of all my cupcake surprises.

1. Two Cupcake placemats.  I've taken pictures of both sides so you can see the perfect fabric choices.  

2. Three tea towels.  These precious tea towels combine cupcakes with my love for vintage hankies.  These are not actually vintage hankies but their addition definitely adds a vintage feel to the towels.

3. Apron.  Thanks to eye_on_sparrow, I now own my very first apron.  Again, the added hankie makes the apron seem so nostalgic.  I can't wait to wear it while baking cupcakes, of course.

4. Water Bottle Sling.  This item is super practical since I love to take day hikes and you can't go on a hike in Alabama without water.  

5. Knitting Necklace.  Another practical item made especially for a knitter....with row counter, stitch counter, a little devise for cutting yarn or thread, and cupcake stitch markers.  Too cute!

6. Extra Goodies.  Included in my package were some extra goodies including three dainty vintage handkerchiefs, Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines, Cupcakes & Muffins, sticky notes, and a memo pad.

A big thanks to eye_on_sparrow for making my first Craftster swap such a great experience.  Now I only hope that eye_on_sparrow enjoys the swap package I'm preparing for her as much as I enjoyed her package.  I must get to work ASAP!

I got home from my vacation yesterday and I just need to carve out a little "me time" so I can properly open my package with camera in hand.  I should have pics posted by the end of the week.  Thanks for the super quick delivery, eye-on-sparrow.  I promise you that I will not be sending until much closer to deadline.  Still crafting up cupcake-y goodies for you!

I wanted to share the Tree of Life I just finished.  This cross stitch is done with one strand over one thread using linen floss and 28 count linen fabric.  This was for a swap partner in a Ravelry Swap.  Finished size is approximately 3" by 4".

Great first embroidery project!  I'm looking for that same inspiration to try this craft....can you share the web site you found?

I'm looking for a first embroidery project and this would be perfect!  If only I had the pattern, or a kit.....not sure I'm confident enough to try this one right out of the gate otherwise.  Beautiful!  Thanks for sharing.

I'm looking for inspiration and motivation to jump into embroidery...never done it but have cross-stitched for many, many years (along with other crafts).  This is the type of project that inspires.  Thanks for sharing.
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need ideas of gifts to craft for friend who cross stitch on: May 12, 2010 04:49:50 AM
Maybe challenge your friend with a kit.  I'm thinking a piece of linen fabric, new DMC linen floss, and a few of the free linen floss patterns found on the DMC web site.

Excellent work...I love to see folks using unusual inspirations for cross stitch patterns.  Of course, the black fabric is also fitting.  Congrats!
