You must be willing to send internationally for this swap. Earrings are small and light, so it probably won't break the bank  Wink. Please make sure to package the earring properly, we wouldn't want anyone to end up with broken earrings
Communication. You should post in the thread at least once a week, and let us know how you're going!
If you can't get a hold of me, don't panic. I'm in Australia, so there is a time difference. Same with the dates looking strange. We put the day first, then the month.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Removing puffed sleeves? on: March 08, 2009 10:08:13 PM
Okay, I've searched, but I couldn't find anything
I haves lots of shirts that I like, but they have puffed sleeves, which in my opinion, make my shoulders look huge. How would I go about fixing them so the sleeves are no longer puffed?
I'm not the world's greatest sewer, though I do have access to a machine if that makes any difference
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Peacock Skirt cross-stitch (4 pics) on: December 11, 2008 10:57:37 PM
I finished this today and just had to post it!

It's called the peacock skit, and it's from the book 'Cross-stitch Art Nouveau' by Barbara Hammet. It's HUGE! I stitched over 2 on 25 count linen, which made it 14.5 inches by 9.5 inches

It's based on this Aubrey Beardsley painting

Since it's so big, it was hard to get a decent shot so here's a couple of close-ups

This is the skirt, which took forever and used something like two and a half skeins of DMC. Which is good, cause the pattern called for four skeins Shocked

I ripped out the face like four times till I got it right. I like blackwork, but the backstitch in this piece drove me nuts! I'm pretty sure that I place a lot of it wrong, but it looks okay to me so I'm leaving it  Tongue

Thanks for looking!
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Handmade book/journal swap on: December 11, 2008 03:14:07 AM
Okay, so I have been on a real book kick lately, and have been making my own, so I was thinking that a handmade book or journal type swap would be cool. Cos, you know, who doesn't need another book? Wink

I was thinking that it could be a swap for one or two books, depending on preference, and one or two book/journaling related extras.

What do you think?
