Here's a hoop with everyone's favorite sweet old ladies.  Stitched on pink 14 count aida and fits in a 5" hoop.

This was fun to make and stitched up quickly.  Thanks for looking!

And finally, my package got here! We don't know why it took so long but G20 probably held up a lot of mail in custom? But it was SO worth waiting for! Look at the epic art quilt I got!

As dfabbric explained, the TARDIS has a camouflage function, but in this mirror she can see her true self: Dialga.

This is so so beautiful and vibrant and well-made! It couldn't match my fandom, style and color preferences any better! And so much love went into the details:

Every detail and stance of Dialga (who is a pretty elaborate Pokemon) are perfect, and do you see those cogwheels around the mirror frame? Right out of the current Doctor Who intro! The light on the TARDIS is glow in the dark, and the mirror glass even has a shiny effect!
This is an amazing quilt and I love it so much! My kids are mightily jealous (because they say that THEY are the bigger Pokemon fans in the house, but they didn't crochet a Hatsune Miku so too bad, the quilt is mine and I love it! Grin) I've already put the quilt up in our living-room so I can see it in the best light.

But I got more!

A super cute and soft Totoro plushie with a Miraculous Ladybug mask (our Plagg plushie is very confused;)), Canada pencils and Canada money and sour candy (was gone faster than I could take a picture Wink), and a nice unicorn card.

Thank you dfabbric, I am so happy about your package!

I looked over a couple patterns but didn't really follow them, just made it up as I went along.
The cherry pie was a bit problematic to join but I learned some things.

The blueberry pie is made with 4 dbl crochet bobbles instead of the usual 5.

I have no idea how this happened, but I just figured out today I hadn't posted pictures from EITHER of my partners. And they were resized and ready to go, even. How did I get to that step, but then not upload?Huh

Wendiek's beautiful cards:

Smeddley, it's funny that you say that about your paintings for the Wing Buffet prompt, because I really love them! Great style and colors.

Prompt: July #5 - The Guild of the Boring and Unnoticed
Team: Makers
Bonus Points: -
Project Name: Shoe maintenance
Project Link: -
Brief Description: A project that's both boring and useful! I repaired my sandals that were coming apart from the soles, and waxed my shoes that were getting dingy. They also got a bit of glue in the same spot as the sandals - I guess I'm hard on shoes in that spot!
Project Picture: Pictures show one shoe polished with nikwax compared to the untreated mate, sandals separating from the sole then glued with E6000, and both pairs finished.

Prompt: Zap #4
Team: Makers
Bonus Points: Engineering
Project Name: Lavender infused strawberry & coconut popsicles
Project Link: -
Brief Description: Love this flavor combination! If you want to make these, here is my recipe:
Simmer 1 can of coconut milk with 2 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp culinary lavender, then let cool and strain out the flowers.
Slice 2 cups of strawberries and simmer with 1 tbsp sugar for 5-10 minutes until syrupy.
Layer both mixtures in your popsicle molds and freeze!
I didn't do this, but I think adding yogurt to the coconut milk would make for a thicker liquid and keep the finished product from separating like mine did. Try it if you want a more even, marbled look!
Project Picture: Pictured is 1 out of 6 popsicles produced by this recipe. I had a bit of coconut mixture left, which was great in my morning oatmeal.

Details of swap:
Do you love Halloween? Do you think about Halloween throughout the year, not just in October?  Do you love opening presents?  If you answered yes to any of those questions then this may be the swap for you! This swap is a Mini 13 days of Halloween swap. Instead of opening all your presents at once like in other swaps, we count down the days to Halloween starting with 10/17. You will open day 13 on October the 18th, day 12 on October the 19th and so on until 10/30.  (This is a flexible time schedule however.  Please communicate with your partner.  If you or they need to adhere to a different schedule, that is, of course, okay as long as youve both worked it out beforehand.)
-You must post in this thread before signing up
-A minimum of 13 items, one for each day.
-At least 6 crafted items must be sent, equal to 5 small (Under $10 or under two hours to craft) and 1 medium (Medium = 2 or more hours to craft or $10-$30 dollars)
-Spoiling is okay but do not expect the same in return. If you would like to spoil, please discuss it with your partner!
-You must post in the thread at least once a week (or communicate reason you cannot)
-You must PM both your partner and organizer when you send and receive
-You must post photos in the gallery and if you cant please ask your partner to do so.  We all want to oooh and aaah over the goodies!

Some things to think about:

* I STRONGLY recommend that you have a Pinterest board for this swap, as it helps out your partner greatly. Please keep this updated and have at least 20 items on it. If you do not have a Pinterest board, please have another way to show items to your partner that you like (Etsy favorites, flickr, etc...)

*If you are sending BAKED GOODS, please only send them if you live in the same country as your partner. We do not need to tempt customs people to keep your package after you have worked so hard on it! Also, if you are sending baked goods you should make this the package that is opened on day 1!

*I highly recommend that you wrap your items in a plastic bag/trash bag/ or some other protective wrapping INSIDE the box you are sending. Things can get wet from rain and/or snow OR things can melt in hot temperatures.

If you want to participate, fill in information and send to organizer calixita
