here is the amazing embroidery I recieved from ybunnygurl.

I said that I liked steampunk, pirates and bright colours, so she took that and ran with it!

The full embroidery

Close-up of the pirate girl, see the rum!

The amazing airship!

I love this piece so much! Thanks ybunnygurl!

Woohoo! I got my angel package from deathbeforedishes tonight! She is such an amazing crafter and picked something that was very high on my wishlist! This definitely takes "not just thread" to a crazy new level. She embroidered a cuckoo clock with an awesome little squirrel that matches a couple of pillows and other decor in my living room, and the teeniest little mushrooms at the bottom, and lots of other lovely things. The cuckoo bird itself is a sculpted piece. It was all mounted on a plaque with one of my favorite colors on the border, and a working clock is installed in it. This thing is so amazing!

I received today from amymarie78! OMG is all I can say! I was grinning ear to ear when I opened the package! 

First of all, it has my name (which is hard to find stuff with my name since it's an uncommon name) and it's got Disney!!!

Check out the cool wire holding up some of the stars!

It's so shiny and awesome!

Thank you amymarie78! This hoop is incredible! (Don't worry about the back - it will be going on my craft room wall very soon!).

I received my hoops (yes, that said hoops) from Twisted5whispers today.  The 'main' hoop is a good old fashioned typewriter, just like the kind I learned to type on 30+ years ago.


Have to see a close up of the keys


and since she sent two hoops to her other partner and despite my protests  Cheesy she sent another small one for me.

beccas_song received my hoop, but she was sick and hasn't been able to post. So here is the hoop that I made for her:

The strawberries are needle-felted wool with seed beads. The blackberries are clusters of small black beads.

Received TWO lovely hoops this week! Prepare to be jealous!

First is PerfectlyBohemian's adorable berry hoop! It was her first try at stumpwork, and my first time to receive some. She did a beautiful job!!!! I love it and will be attempting to do some soon too. Smiley I can't tell you how much I love this hoop! Sorry I'm a crappy photographer. It was hard to catch all the details. The blackberries are needle felted and then beaded all over and look SO real. The strawberries are also felted with tiny seed beads sewn on. The leaves are all stumpwork. I swear, I did a happy dance when this came in the mail. It suits me so well and I am honored that she learned a new skill to try for my hoop. Thank you PerfectlyBohemian!!!

Next up is pugwash's hoop!

I recieved from Ilovemybrachiosaurus today! She sent me a hoop based on Rudyard Kipling's "The Baby Elephant and the Alligator" She was super creative with this and I absolutely LOVE the alligator! The fabric she used is perfect! Thank you so much I really do love these hoops!! I also wanted to note that the elephants trunk has elastic behind it that makes it stretchy. So cool.

While I'm posting.

Here's the hoop I sent to bubblegum_phoenix. She's recieved but can't post photos, so here I go.

She likes inpiring quotes, strong women and Alice in Wonderland, so I made up a sort of Goddess of Wonder for her.

Who made your hoop?  It is gorgeous!
I'm going to guess you are talking to me, my swap partner was ralph.

Thanks!  I keep admiring the details... Cheesy

And because I can, a detail from my hoop to ybunnygurl. Yes, those are false eyelashes I sewed to the hoop.

I really hope my partners like these and thanks for all the kind comments,

Well today I got the best box.... my hoop. My partner totally hit it out of the park.  I actually squealed and danced around when I opened it because well I love the Genie so much and she did such a fine job.

And a close up of her tiny fine stitching.

received from twisted5whispers after a LONG day of work yesterday:

LOVE the geek glasses and she pulled it from my pinterest.  then, because she claimed that one took "no time at all", she included a second hoop, also pinterest inspired:

which turned out awesome!!  the thread color totally matches our wedding color, i love the background fabric, and my hubs appreciated having something that included him as well Smiley
thank you so much, i'll be cranking on yours all weekend to s/o monday!

I love everything so far in this thread!

I received from tarmine626 and fiiiiinally could take pictures.. the hoop is still not up on it's final spot because I still haven't found time to put a nail in the wall but it will be soon haha

Isn't he cute?
The egg shells are some kind of waxy cloth and the grass is some neat synthetic turf (is that the right word?)

And look at the details in his face! He's a smug little one  Grin

Thanks tarmine, looking forward to our next swap Wink

I received from both of my partners!

Perfectly Bohemian sent me a great Harold and Maude hoop! It's my favorite movie. I actually recently got a sunflower tattoo because of the movie, and I almost got the flower motorcycle from the poster she modeled this after!

Deathbeforedishes also sent me a great hoop! She sent me "The Clapp Family" to go along with my cheeky STD hoops. (I only have one other that she made me in another swap!)
