LadybugsAndBumblebees has received her parcel and requested I post photos for her so here goes.
Her Q listed rainbow and practical, useful items. I made a matching set with bright stripes paired with black and white patterned fabric which really makes the colours pop. I used both the right and wrong sides of the black for more and less contrast, I really liked how that made everything look similar but different.

Here's everything all together with a few extras, rainbow assortment of washi tape, 3 pre-made colourful bags I put them in, a bracelet that says "QUEEN" with a bee charm on it, and a card I made.


She had the Open Wide pouch pinned so I made one with a rainbow selection of hand dyed fabric I received from somebody here and strip pieced together. I went shopping specifically for a purple zipper in that size, then when I had it all put together I thought it could have looked just as good with a black one, lol.


It's lined with Mary Engelbrite fabric that says "There is no key to happiness, the door is always open" which I really liked. I also added an internal zippered pocket.


Here is a matching covered journal with rainbow ribbon place markers.


The inside.


There's a pen holder that functions as an elastic band to hold the journal closed if it gets stuffed with papers etc.


Tissue cosy and key fob.


Everything is stitched with this variagated rainbow thread I have a big spool of and just love, it has great colour changes.

I wrapped it all in rainbow tissue, stickers and washi. Then I remembered parts for the two largest parcels and had to unwrap those so I couldn't send those awesome glittery rainbow stickers, boo. That's what I get for being too excited. I rewrapped them with different butterflies anyhow.


I hope you liked everything and can make use of it LB&BB.

This was a fun swap! I had so many ideas and could have gone on making right to the send out date but I wanted to send early enough that it arrived on time. Often the post across the border is slow but not this time!
Can't wait to see what you guys all make for each other! My parcel should be here soon, so exciting Smiley.
Thanks gala_apples for organizing.

I got spoiled too!

The coolest card and envelop, a keychain that says "Be Kind", rainbow stickers and washi tape.

Prayer flag with fringed edges "Love For All, All For Love".

This nifty covered ring with a heart floating in the middle. The strings holding the heart are so fine it actually does look like it's floating there.

"Love Has No Limits" TM patch/book mark, the heart is embellished with the teensiest sparkly seed beads.

Love Is Love TM patch style decorative ornament with Hope and a fancy heart embellishments.

Mug rug that MistressJennie sent her in a swap another time, she stitched around the edge to add her own flair.

This hilarious kid complaints fabric that I am totally going to use on something for myself, ha ha ha, it's SO funny!

Nifty giant pencil that draws in multicolours at once.


Everything is fab. Thanks too gala-apples for organizing this swap. Any chance for more rainbow crafts sounds great to me!

I've been checking every day to see when it all worked again. I am hoping today is the day!
Well, I couldn't get them to upload on Craftster, but I was able to get flickr to work. (Thank you CLM!!)

You might have read above that Cmarion had a project that kind of got away from her! I was lucky to have read that; otherwise I would have been very confused at the box I received.  Huh I mean, I sent an ENVELOPE!  Shocked I opened the box to this rainbow-y goodness! On the sides I could see drink umbrellas and little boxes of temporary tattoos!

I unrolled everything and these three beauties fell out. I should have gotten a photo of the other sides too. They are so cute!

And finally I unrolled this. I really was flabbergasted. She told me I could use it as a mug rug, a wall hanging or a large prayer flag.  Cheesy I picked wall hanging. I'm starting a new job next month and I might hang it in my area. For now it is hanging with my race bling. If you look closely, you can see the bead swirl details. There is so much going on in this piece that every time I look at it, I see new things.

Thank you SO much Carol. I am not worthy! It is a fabulous piece and I am honored to have it be mine.

I am going to try again to post the wonderful patch fatewineroses sent. I love the message, it is absolutely perfect. It's ready to be attached to whatever I'm wearing to the next rally. I love it and love that she followed my request for something small...because I did not honor that request in reverse. LOL. And the chocolate is long gone. Thank you fatewineroses

I might try Flickr or another site tomorrow to upload a pic of what gala_apples sent me. But in the meantime, here is a pic of what I sent her. It's the asexual pride flag as the background.
