21  Re: Personal/Private Swap Gallery, 2010 in The Swap Gallery by gatheredthreads on: July 29, 2010 05:22:42 PM
craftylittlemonkey SPOILED my girls in exchange for me printing some fabric for her https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350052.msg4123621#msg4123621 , and for sending her some fabrics (which I am still to do - I think I should spoil her in return Wink )

The pink dog and rainbow dog are for my dog-obsessed 7 year old.  She has named the little guy "rainbow", and the pink dog is "carla".

The lion is for my almost 1-year old.  She hasn't seen him yet; I am saving him for our big road trip tomorrow.  She roars at any and every lion picture she sees, so I am sure she will love him!  He has such a sweet face.

And then there is an eye spy bag that they can both enjoy!

Thanks again for a wonderful swap.  Your stuffies are beautiful.

I told Padfoot I could post a photo of the rainbow fat quarters I dyed for her, because she is having a bad week  Cry

I had so much fun making them. I can't wait to see what she uses them for!

25  zombie lovers, I need your help! in Discussion and Questions by gatheredthreads on: April 25, 2010 04:39:59 PM
I would love love love to make a little art quilt for my dh.

The trouble is, the only thing he really loves is zombies :lol:

I would like to come up with something zombie inspired, but I am drawing a complete blank.  

Any ideas (or even pics of zombie crafts you like) would really be appreciated.

To give you an idea of what I can do, these are my two favourite pieces:

I made a zelda wallhanging for simplyfussfree's boyfriend.  Unfortunately, simplyfussfree is going on a long trip very soon, and we're not sure the parcel will reach her before she leaves.

I said I would post pics so she could take a look at it before she goes Smiley

(the pic is not all that great, btw; I was so sick when I took it, and the good flash for my camera is broken)

I have received 3 parcels this week!  Perfect timing as I am under the weather and can really do with cheering up  Grin

First, from farmgirljane, two quilt magazines and a big pile of sheer fabrics.  The picture does not do these fabrics justice, they are all very different and beautiful.

Next, from purpleone, two amazing pendants, plus some magnets and a cute crochet pouch.  Unfortunately my good flash is currently broken, so I can't do close ups; this pic doesn't really show how beautiful the pendants are.

And then, from shiitake, some dark chocolate and some cute handspun yarn.  I love the colour combination  Grin

Thank you again!

Last week my daughter received the sweetest tooth fairy pillow from igobylorib.  She loves it Smiley  Isn't it beautiful!

I also recieved some sheer fabrics, which will be perfect for my quilting, and some sushi erasers and tissues.

Thank you so much Lori Smiley
