1  Re: Witch/Wicca/Pagan Swap Round 8 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by thewench on: October 23, 2008 08:46:03 PM
Finally! I was able to get all the pictures edited and uploaded sooo here we go:

First up, a wand AeonGoddess had her father make me. The body is ash, and the handle is antique oak. Isn't it lovely? It just, fits, and I know everyone knows what I mean. Smiley

Then she made me a Leaf scarf (her first non-granny square crochet project!) to give me a taste of what a real Autumn could feel like (it was 84 degrees today so I can't wear it yet). There is shimmery threading going through the yarn but my camera didn't get it quite in.

One that I absolutely adore and love is the Celtic Card Deck she sent me. I've used it several times already and have had wonderful results!

And then a gorgeous hand knit, hand embroidered bag with beautiful bracelets that were tucked inside!

I was spoiled rotten!! Thank you AeonGoddess I love it all!!!

2  Deployment Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by thewench on: October 20, 2008 06:16:31 PM
So my husband is in the US Marines and deployed to Iraq (for 7 months) October 4th. To keep him warm and cozy during the cold winter nights I decided to make him a quilt he could take with him and destroy (you know how men are). It's log cabin in Quilter's Cotton and batiks and the underside is flannel. I pieced it together and the guys from Bear's Quilt Shop machine quilted it for me. 

That was before it was quilted and this is after...I couldnt really get a decent shot of it because he wouldn't let go. Smiley

Thanks for looking!
ETA: I suppose I ought to mention this is my first finished quilt. So..It's my first finished quilt!!

5  USMC Washcloth in Knitting: Completed Projects by thewench on: August 04, 2007 06:10:09 PM
 My husband is joining the United States Marine Corps on Tuesday the 7th. Sad Anywhoodles, I was in a craft swap where my partner, knowing my love for dishcloths and my desire to learn to make them sent me a TON of patterns to knit up. I was scrolling through the list and came across a pattern for the Eagle, Globe and Anchor (which is the insignia for the MC). First, I nearly cried because it was such a thoughtful thing to include and also because it'll help me feel all that much closer while he's gone to boot camp. SO I knit it up on Sugar and Creme yarn in a blue color. The first picture shows the pattern but the 2nd shows the color.....Flash changing things no?

Thanks Miss_Vicki, your a wonderful person!!!

Okies!  I FINALLY got my room done!  Here's my Before SHots:

Can I just say your husband going into the USMC is a great motivator to get stuff done (while you have him around to do the heavy lifting of course)? We took everything out and painted my walls a peach-ish beige and moved in our bed since I'll be staying with my parents while he's gone. Here are the after shots, yea!!

It's a bit of a mess because I'm leaving for vacation (hence the laundry basket) but over all it's a HUGE improvement. Thanks to everyone who helped motivate me into cleaning up my mess!

Ok, so i got my package from Miss_Vicki on Monday and it's what, Thursday? Sorry!  I was on my Honeymoon (married Sunday) and then when we got back, we started painting the bedroom (he's doing touch-ups as we speak) so I've been uber busy.  In anycase, she SPOILED SPOILED SPOILED me rotten!

I recieved a beautimus knit/crochet bag in varigated and purple yarn (I love me some purple), a green dishcloth with a 4 leaf clover on it (I love dishcloths!) and sewing needles, 3 crochet hooks in pretty bright colors, a stitch holder, a plastic swirly stick used to hold things closed (should i be lazy and make a cardigan with no buttons-yup!) which is beautiful!, blocking pins in Neon orange/green and yellow so that they'll stand out aganist all my boring browns/greys and blues I make, super cute poly-clay knitting beads, lip gloss, stitch stoppers (since my yarn loves to fly off the needles) Bamboo needles (not shown), and  THE YARN!!!

Oh the lovely lovely lovely yarn. 3 hanks of hand-dyed super wash wool with is so soft, I just want to curl up in this yarn, and can you believe it, it's her first time with black! Purple and Black dyed yarn for me? Heaven. But she didn't stop there, no, she also got me a small hank of silk yarn in a pretty aqua green that I can make up into a headband or (inspiration hits!) a choker!!, and pretty pretty variegated yarn that I believe I will make into a beanie.  Pictures!

And because I'm a newlywed picture...ah...lady of the night (I think you get what i'm sayin).....

Thank you Miss_Vicki, your an awesome swap partner!!!!
