Lethargic let me know that she received what I sent her, so here are the photographs!

Lethargic likes Roy Lichtenstein and said that she would like a coin purse, so I used the print she has as her icon as the basis of my OTT.

Here's a crappy photo of the whole thing.  I had to take it with my camera phone because my camera batteries died the day before I was to mail it.  Boo!  Sad

But here's a scan of the front of it, with the original for comparison:

It's all felt, with lots of cutting!  I know it's under four inches square, but I think that after stitching it all together, it's probably around 3.5 inches square.

Hi everyone, I am glad lol-lol recieved, I was getting a little worried the post had lost my express parcel, i sent it like 6 days ago with overnight mail! thank goodness its there!

So i took some pics, here they are.
The front of the mini quilt wallhanging aka etsy shop shingle. Themed on lol-lol new etsy shop she is planning. Her avatar is an owl and the name of the shop is fly by night.

the back

I used my embroidery machine to do the owl, i had to shrink the design 40% to fit and added the writing. I embellished it with beads and the stars and moon charm. I used the most divine feather fabric that i have been saving for owl projects for ages. I added a beaded little metal wire handle to hang it up.
What do u all think?  Smiley

Here is the cute card that came with him/her!

Thanks so much Autumn!  Nibs is so cute and it's nice to know I'll always have access to a yummy supply of chocolate!

Ok, camera charged, here are the pictures of what Spicey sent me!  I apologize, I was trying to get a shot of the necklace on me which is difficult when there's no one around to help, so you get to see my pretty face too Wink  haha.

Isn't it GORGEOUS??  She got my style exactly...I didn't even tell her I love freshwater pearls, but lo and behold, there they are!  And I immediately realized I have a freshwater pearl bracelet that matches it perfectly!!  It's hard to tell in the picture, but the beads are a transparent purple/gray with silver spacers and a swirly silver charm.  I LOVE it, this inspired me to go browsing through her shop online...haha, can you tell how much I like it yet?  It even came packaged in a lovely purple organza bag.  I'm officially a big fan of the OTT swap. 

Now I'm just praying what I made is ok!

I was lucky enough to receive these beautiful bracelets from juliel85. Aren't they great?! The photos don't do them just justice, but at least you get the idea. Smiley

When I showed them to my other half, he said they are very "me". So true!

P.S. juliel85 - The necklace looks awesome on you, YAY!  Cool

I received my (i believe it fits in the 4x4 rule, so THERE) OTT from Homerof2, and she fulfilled one of my desires for a little crocheted beastie.

I love the way you described that Tiffany!

Yes, I did stretch the rules just a little and made something that was about 6" x 1 1/2" (which is still less than 16 sq. inches).  Next round I promise to stick to the rules!

So, here's the little caterpillar I made:

i can't wait to see it, bobolink!  modus operandi is an amazing painter Smiley

and since heroinechic received from me (on the same day i received from her!) here's a pic of the nestlace i sent her:

it took FOREVER to decide what kind of chain to use but in the end i'm really happy with how it came out Smiley

i also received a super cute needlebook from heroinechic; it's made with this bright happy fabric that she embellished with some ridiculously perfect embroidery.  so, it'll hold my needles AND remind me to keep my stitches even  Grin  no pictures yet, but i think she has some to post Smiley  thank you, heroinechic!

Wow - all the tiny thing are so fabulous -

I got home late last night from a trip and my OTT from arnimegirlie was waiting for me.  She made me a tiny goddess pin with teeny tiny stitches.  She based the goddess on Venus of Willendorf - one of my favorite goddess.  It has tiny slightly iridescent stars on the corners and tiny star earrings to go with it.  I am so blessed. I will try to get my act together and post pictures today.

Thank you animegirlie

I'm so glad you like it! This OTT was tough for me - it's not my original vision, but I still like it.

I have a picture of the pin from the front - The earrings I sent are made with the same stars that are on the corners of the pin:

for reference the stars are about 1/4 tall - I always forget to put something in for scale. The whole pin isn't bigger than an inch and a half.

I know a pin and a pair of earrings aren't 1 tiny thing, but it is 1 set! ^_~ and they are all really tiny!

Okie dokie. Well, mommiemed received mine and she told me to post it here so here it is:

It's another coin purse, which I make too many of for these swaps, and it's knitted, the pocket is embroidered, and the handle is macramed. She likes it alot.  Grin

P.S. She hopes to send on Wednesday.
