WOW! Lots more great stuff! That embroidery is really good!

Ok, since I haven't seen any post from my partner about her OTT that I sent her, I'm going to go ahead and post pics myself. I made her something that I've never made before and I worked really on it and I'm very proud of how it came out. It's a paper bag mini album with 18 pages, lots of pockets, tags and Twilight pics. There's 15 small tags and 5 big tags. On the back of each tag she can put a pic of her own. She liked Bella the most, so I made sure every pic had Bella in it. I also made a matching box that the album gets put in.

I hope you guys can see the pics ok. I had to try to put them small and together are as you can see, I would LOTS of pics to post.

I haven't heard from my partner for awhile so I'm going to post some pics of what I made and sent. (Though I'm not the best photographer when it comes to taking pics with alot of silver stuff in them)

Anyway on the questionaire she mentioned she'd like a keychain. So I made a keychain/zipper pull that had elements of all her fav things she mentioned on the questionaire. Her fav character was Edward, then Bella, fav book and movie was twilight, actor was rob, fav scene was the baseball scene and kissing scenes and I also included her fav quote on there as well as a few other little charms.
Here are the pics:

I included this book locket which I have made once before, here it is closed

and opened

Pops, you have been so patient. First I made you wait until I had finished yours, then I finally opened it yesterday (and loved it) and my battery died as I went to take photos! So, now I have a charged camera and photos to share!

I cannot believe that Pops and I went down the same route, but in such completely different ways!

First the front and back with the sewing kit closed -with my initial on the front and my favourite quote embroidered on the back.

Then the inside - Pops made it with Alice in mind, as she is my favourite character. It is a picture of Alice in the little hanging frame.

And lastly, the outside, opened up.

Isn't it beautiful? I just adore it pops. I have so enjoyed having you as a partner - both stalking and creating for you and then to be rewarded with my gorgeous sewing kit. Thank you for making this a great swap.

Here is the "purselet" I made for juliminustheE- I was originally planning on a convertible wallet, however the execution wasn't all that great, so I went with this instead, it's a zippered pouch with an embroidered pocket on the front (her favorite quote, so the lion fell in love with the lamb) I used fabric that suggested the meadow, and then of course music fabric for Bella's lullaby, and the colors of red, black and white- to keep in theme with the book covers.  The inner fabric is the same meadow type fabric, and the wallet that goes inside is made from red, black and white patchwork.  Inside are card pockets and a money pocket.  The outer measures 4.5x 4.75- the inner wallet is 3x4.  The zipper pull has a graduation cap, for eclipse as well as juliminustheE's pending graduation Cheesy

On to pictures Smiley

So, I finally caught up with my camera, then wrangled it into submission! Wink

here is the necklace that babycakes8510 made me!

wait, what is holding my necklace?!?!

OMG it's JASPER! (not a gift from this swap, but I got it in the mail while taking the pics, so perfect timing!)

Aside from braggin' on my Jasper doll, allow me to brag about my necklace! babycakes8510 made it with blood-red and black beads, with lovely antiqued silver connectors and an antiqued silver filagree center pendant! the charms she included are an apple on one side, and a combo of a "J," a red heart (because Jasper's heart is better than Edward's! plus, added bonus, I was born in July, so ruby is my birthstone!), and a little bat! Wink The necklace is super-long (which I requested!) and just plain lovely! It's the right mixture of chunky (which I love) and pretty (which I am learning to love! Cheesy)! Thank you babycakes8510!  Kiss

gratuitous Jasper shot...

and the back!

I finally got to open my package from piinkfeline!!

I ADORE it!  Not only is it Edward but he travelled all the way from Germany!  

My little man all snuggled in his shipping box with a note for me!

I love the little "C" on his shirt!

I love him!!!  Thank you soooo much.  Hopefully your's will get to you soon.

She suggested that if I didn't like him I could give him to my dog...*gasp*  No way am I giving my little monster Boston my cool little Edward.  He's going to work with my on Monday.

Here is my OTTT from Michela. She made this wonderfully awesome wallet with "Team Edward" cross stitched on the front!

Here is the front:

Here is back (there's a button but it's actually a snap closure):

Here's a shot with it open:

It even has a pocket in the front!

Thank you, Michela! I love it and it's come in quite handy!

I received my fab OTTT from guineverefree.  guin crafted me a wonderful Quote Bracelet/Bookmark.  I adore it!  You can't really tell from the pics, but silver thread was used in the piece making it sparkle.

oh...and bunnykins...I used to use that as my avatar too...are you in Austin?!  Grin

I RECEIVED! I really love this necklace...it's so cute! Brass fangs with little drops of glass "blood" on them. I included a pic of the apple pendant/cell phone charm because it was attached to the necklace (I took it off to take pics of both separately), so not an extra  Grin. I really love it Spydie, thanks!

first, a pic of the package with the cute card she included...

here's the necklace

and the apple charm that goes with the necklace or on my cell phone...

love it, thanks again!

Well, my partner received on April 24th, so I thought I'd post pics for her. I went a TOTALLY different way with this one...she said she's more of an "inspired by" Twilight fan, so I didn't want anything too blatant. And I found this pic on her wist...

and I thought, oh yeah, apple. so...this is my interpretation of that. It's a brooch.

so...it's a fimo apple (with a real apple stem) & the "she's with us" is a quote from Carlisle, my partner's favorite character. I really thought the chains & nails were symbolic of the no going back mentality that Bella & Edward realized throughout...that once she becomes a vampire, there's no returning to a normal life. She's chained to the life & to the family, for better or worse. So, in my mind it worked out hahahahaha...I'm kind of weird sometimes though, so if no one else gets it I'm ok with that. I just hope she liked it!

I received from Super-Ted_Cullen! today and this lady has done some seriously admirable stalking! I'm speechless, she's got me absolutely down to a T and I only hope that my parcel matches up to this standard.
My OTTT is a yellow fleece "Forks High School" Ipod nano hoodie, not only do I have a matching yellow ipod but it's also suffering being battered in my bag, attached to it is a tree of life charm which acts as a closure to the hoodie! The lengths that she went to to make said hoodie were to go to an electrical store to get measurements as she doesn't own an ipod nano herself and even testing it on a member of staff's own ipod!
She included a letter explaining the package and that was printed to be twilight themed too.
Thankyou Super-Ted_Cullen!
On to the pics
