I got mine!!  Gingerquilts really outdid herself (and me, I fear... could you just send that package back and I'll send something else?) with this tiny thing!

It's a fold-away knit kit!!  

It's tri-fold, so I'll walk you through it...




And the back!

In the little pocket in picture #2, there are point protectors.  In pic #3, you see a stitch holder on the left, hand-made stitch markers in the middle and a two-page needle "book" on the right.  On the back, you get a second shot of the pocket with the point protectors, and the other pocket holds a tiny pair of fold-up scissors attached with a ribbon.  And here's a closeup of the stitch markers:

I love it!  It was promptly tucked away (after the photo shoot) into my knitting bag, ready for use.  It's beautifully done.  Gingerquilts, honey, you should sell these puppies!  Beautifully done!  (Did I say that already?)  I hope my (I now realize) meager offering tickles you as much as this tickles me!

I got my lovely OTT from ax174 today! We're both asian knitters, so she made me a lovely mini knitting brooch so I can show off my obsession love of knitting all over town.

The full package--with a lovely chocolate notecard and *gasp* bonus magnets!

A close-up of the brooch. She made sure to make it non-wool (since I think I'm developing a wool allergy, yikes!) and it's in a lovely shade of orange which will just not photograph quite right, darn it! I've actually been wanting one of these for a while, yay!

An action shot of the bonus keyboard key magnets, which are perfect because I keep my entire life on two magnetic noteboards above my desk. (And yes, I've actually been wanting some of these too. How did you know?!)
Thank you so much Eva, you've made my day with your perfect OTT!

Yay! I'm so glad you received and liked it, ax174! Here are some pictures I took before sending:

A picture of the top--it's a regular Altoid tin covered with Fimo and glazed. I tried to make it look like the sheep's tail was getting unraveled into the ball of yarn--I don't know if it "reads" quite like that.

The bottom. Swirly, eh?

The inside with the kit contents--nothin' too fancy w/ the stitch markers, just beads in a similar shade of tealy-green as the box top.

Hey! I received my one tiny thing a couple days ago... but craftster was down and I couldn't post until today.

Here's the pi box I got from Bigmouth.

Here's the top (sorry kind of blurry):

Apple pi. Hehehe.

Here's the bottom of the lid and the bottom of the container thingy:

And here's the inside. It has cool stickers everywhere. The bottom is all bumpy.

Sorry rackycoo, I didn't get a picture of the box, but you could probably fit a small dog in there along with the 50 or so plastic bags.

Another really cool thing is that I received it on March 14, pi day. How cool is that??

Thank you so much Bigmouth!!

So, I finally got my lazy butt up and took some photo's of the glorious OTT that the felt fairy *bows down to magnificance* sent to me......

and here they are...!!!!

I opened up the package to this...!!!
A felt pouch!

Which, is absolutley gorgeous, the little girraffe applique is adorable, and eating some leaves, which are beaded on with leaf shaped beads... AND...!!! I have hoo ha's too ! hehe flower hoo ha's with a beaded (wink wink) center hehe.

Now, this alone is a great OTT, But, it felt (haha get it..?) a little bumpy, and I open it up

It came with a little card, with a Poem on it, which I couldnt get a decent shot of, and, a felted giraffe..! but this is the poem.

When you're feeling down,
and you need a little laugh,
take a peek or two
at Geoffrey the girraffe.

Smiling at his stumpy neck
Is the only thing to do.
Now you have your very own
tiny pocket zoo.

(Its so cute, it made me smile)

And now here...!!! is some great (*snort*) Pics of Geoffrey

Geoffrey laying down,

Really bad and blurry pic of him laying down..!

I love love love it soooooooooo much the felt fairy You are brilliant!

Geoffrey sits ontop of my computer so I can peek at him all the time, Im considering making him a little "cage" so i can take him with me and not get him dirty/broken/ruined.

He has come in handy..!

Thank you so much again..!



p.s. I have updated feedback and the first page of the swap thread too..!

I received my one tiny thing from lothruin yesterday.  It's the perfect thing I truly need - a pincushion!
The front with beautiful embroidery and beads:

The back with great fabric:

Check out the description she wrote:
"The top is knitted wool thread, handspun at the Amana colonies in central Iowa and worked on size 1.25mm antique steel knitting needles.  I then used some old silk button twist to embroider vines and sew on the dragonfly beads.  The top was hand-stitched to the bottom .."

Wow!  I will always treasure it.  I really needed a pin-cushion, too!!  I use lots of different kinds of pins for different kinds of stitching.  Thanks so much lothruin!  I'm heading right up to my third floor sewing room to put it to good use!!!  I guess dragonflies were our unspoken "theme"!

Well I'm finally getting around to posting the beautiful tiny thing that animegirlie made for me!  I received yesterday, but I really had to go to the studio after dinner and get some work done...
So, here it is! An incredible embroidered wrist cuff!

And here is a detail of her amazingly detailed embroidery!<-- edit: can I emphasize the detail enough? Roll Eyes

I must say that I really really love the pattern!! What was it inspired by? And the colors are so perfect! It matches half my wardrobe, my car, and pretty much my entire bedroom!! Thank you so much!! This has been a wonderfull swap!!

Here it is! Its a bit bigger than I usually work with. This box is about 4 inches by 3 inches and about an inch deep. I had to make it that big because I loved the kimono I found. And who knew you could find lampwork beads in the shape of a geisha's head? I sure didn't. (the quarter is just there to show the size)

Yay- Craftgirl Sampson got my tiny thing!  Smiley
She said she liked hearts and wanted a tiny purse, and I read in her posts that she was still in her "pink and black phase" so this is what I made. It fits my cell phone perfectly.

Sorry about that. Here are the photos of the eye-catching ID case from mjadams:

And one with my mysteriously matching nail polish. What are you, psychic?

What makes it tiny, you ask? Said mjadams in the enclosed Hello Kitty card: "The rhinestones are little so I thought it would count." Well I'm not going to argue. Thanks mjadams!

I received my OTT4 tonite!

It's the most teeny tiny perfect little donut! I just love it!
Thanks so much, Streifenhornchen! You must have nimble delicate fingers to do such fine work, unlike the sausages I'm forced to work with. Cheesy
