1  Re: Craft with a Fat Quarter Swap Round 3 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by A2K on: October 15, 2015 09:04:37 PM
I did it!  I got these images up using Tapatalk!  I'm shocked!  Get ready for serious swap envy, girls!

I'm sorry the first photo is turned sideways -- the little girl on the swing hanging off a star has been on my Pinterest for a LONG time.  Averia crafted this awesome ornament that will hang in my craft room full time.  You also see covered buttons, three lovely french knot flowers protected by bottle caps that are trying to decide if they are magnets or a brooch, a pendant displaying a blue ball of yarn and knitting needles, and a brooch with embroidery highlighting the fabric motif.  You also see a tiny biscornu, shown in more detail in the next photo!  This is also something I had pinned.  How in the world did you make this tiny thing, Ave?  I had a hard time making one using size 16 aida cloth!  This is also a design from my Pinterest!

The next shot shows a jelly jar pin cushion, a cute paperclip bookmark (very clever!) and the fat quarters Ave sent to me.  I love the woodland creatures and know the batik will find it's way into something special.

The piece de resistance is the embroidered zipper pouch.  I have long admired a similar embroidery -- this is pretty enough to frame.  I just love the colors you choose, Ave!  Note the adorable birdie in the upper right corner.  

The next picture came in upside down.  Sad  It's right side up in the bottom picture.  This is a wristlet with the sweetest rolled embellishment.  It's absolutely lovely -- it will be used to store some of my knitting things.  

Ave, I feel stalked -- in a good way!  I love every single thing you sent and apologize for taking so long to get pictures up.  The delay was certainly NOT due to the quality of the package because it's PERFECT (yes, I'm shouting!).  Thank you, my friend.  I feel quite spoiled!!!

I have been out of contact because . . . my daughter had her baby!!!!! My daughter is the craftster who got me hooked on swapping -- maybe you "know' her -- meganlorraine had a baby girl on Sunday, September 13.  Her name is Aurora Lorraine and I love on her whenever possible!  

I had a really good start on my swap items before I jumped in my car to get here (2 day drive), but I've been an bit busy!  I'm quite curious about what you've dreamed up, partner!  I'm going to consult with my genius daughter for ideas.  

Here's my first selfie with Rory!

Sold to LeapFeetFirst:  Custom Wallet

I know you said you didn't need a coin pocket, but it was easier to build the wallet including one.

Get ready to view an exquisite package!   I received from mama24boyz yesterday:

Some great fabrics!  The flowered pink may become a little outfit for my new granddaughter!


String art tree -- I love the center of the log slice in the tree top -- like a nest or something!

AND, this lovely lapghan!

I just didn't have the right kind of space to get a really good shot of the whole thing, but I've tried to show you the remarkable details.  Just beautiful!

mama24boyz also sent a tin of herbal tea -- a fruit infusion containing golden raisons, apple, chamomile and lots of other things I can't remember!  It was delicious with a touch of honey!

thanks for a great package, mama!  And thank you, underthemountain, for your hard work to make this such a successful swap!

I received from my partner, average_fan!  She did some great stalking, because she discovered I'm an elephant fan.  She wrapped my goodies in cute paper and cute tapes! The package itself was covered in CUTE stickers and was fun even before I opened it. 

All the packages including the shipping package and and ellefant card!

An adorable crocheted owl keychain, something I was really hoping she would make -- I didn't realize this picture was blurry -- I will try to retake this and replace it with one that is more clear!

AND . . .

These phenomenal wool slipper socks!  I love these to pieces!!

Thanks, average_fan!  I loved my package!!!

Is there any interest in jar openers?  I have a very difficult time with most lids and have found a solution.
