I would like to claim the pink earrings and the flying pig fabric!  This is my third claim, two sent and two received.

Choose one:

-5+ oz merino superwash roving in light blue with colorful noils. (2 available)

-8 skeins of peach Unger "fluffy."  100% acrylic, but really quite soft and, yes, fluffy.  (it's about a US 4 needle size, though they recommend 6 on the label)

-Simplicity 4226 pattern sizes 6-14 (US), unopened.

Or pick two:

-Pink handspun yarn (3.5+ oz) is 2/3 mystery roving and 1/3 columbia fleece dyed with pokeberry.  I am calling it a niave yarn, because it is all bumpy and fuzzy, the real issue was that the columbia wasn't washed enough prior to spinning and didn't draft well as a result. 

- brown/blue handspun yarn (approx 2 oz) is 1/2 mystery roving (if I'm not mistaken, it appears to have some silk in it) and 1/2 columbia dyed with black walnut and supplimented traces of green columbia (kool-aid dyed) with (undyed) merino for contrast.  This columbia was re-washed before spinning, and drafted a bit more evenly, resulting in a worsted weight yarn.

- Pair of pinking shears, with orange handle

- two christmas ornaments to crosstitch - unopened.

- Opened and used baby bedroom decor patterns MacCall's 8373 - I made only the ruffle and the bumper, and everything should still be in the package. 

- lot of sticky-backed foam letters.  This is just a sample of the font and the colors.  There may be more colors, but in the neon vein.  They're about an inch high, and there are many, many of them.

- Clip on craft light, unopened.

Or pick three fat quarters:
one pink and white flowers on blue
one <O> sort of shapes on blue
one blue cloudy with dark stars
two cats in space on blue background
two geometric with teal, dark blue, and purple

Or pick 8 skeins from this mixed bag of yarn.  Mostly acrylic, but the white fuzzy stuff is 10% mohair, and the red is 100% wool, though it doesn't look or feel it, particularly.  These are worsted weight or finer.

Last day of this round of the swap, everyone!! If you want to keep it going in February, send your questionnaire to maremare312!

Having said that, I will claim gavagai's fabric paints.

This is my 9th claim this month.  I have sent 8, and 7 of them have been received.

My list

For your claim, you can pick any THREE of the following (or one thing from the "pick 2" list and 1-2 things from this "pick 3" list):

- bag of glass flat-on-one-side marbles for photo magnets, home decor, etc

- these shiny doodads, flat on their back-side-- butterflies, flowers and bows. I’m not sure if they’re glass or plastic, somewhere in the middle...

- Vintage girls dress pattern, Advance #5170. size 6, breast 24 

- Vintage men's knit shirt and shorts pattern, Simplicity pattern 5044. size 42; chest 42", waist 36". Please let me know if you specifically want the image on the front of the envelope; otherwise I'll keep it for cheesy papercraft  Grin

- Vintage women's jumpsuit pattern, Butterick #5889, size 14. Please let me know if you specifically want the image on the front of the envelope; otherwise I'll keep it for cheesy papercraft  Grin

- Vintage women's ("misses") pattern for blouse, halter and pants; McCall's #4426. Misses' size 16, bust 38. Please let me know if you specifically want the image on the front of the envelope; otherwise I'll keep it for cheesy papercraft  Grin 

- Vintage women’s Simplicity pattern #7049, for dress or shirt

- Big sheet of unicorn wrapping paper, mainly green, foresty design

- 6 small vintage "open house" cards with envelopes 

- unopened pack of Ranger Rick valentine cards! These’ve got to be old.

- 2 medium-large-ish wooden embroidery hoops of the same size

- 2 unfinished wooden door-hangers for decorating

- An approx. 6x6" needlepoint on Aida cloth that says in dainty letters, "F*** your gender". (The actual piece has it spelled out, and I'm not posting a photo for obvious reasons.)

- Loves Me/Loves Me Not wheel, in plastic packaging, comeswith envelope for mailing. Spin the wheel instead of picking a poor daisy's petals off! There are also answers like those of a Magic 8-Ball inside of the wheel (in the 2nd picture), with a window on the outer/top wheel.  

- Outer cover (front and back covers still attached to each other) of old pulp paperback novel, airline/pilot themed. Some pages from the book included.

- Unused butterfly stencil. The sheet is 8.5x11". 

- A bunch of these white satin pieces embroidered with an “F” in a metallic gold (Teachers: flunk out your students with style!)

- Foam bear stamp

- “Gift Baskets for All Seasons”, by Elizabeth Jane Lloyd

- “The Stencilling Workbook” by Judy Tuttle (ISBN  0-88266-682-7). Primarily floral designs.
158 pgs, 50 projects.

- “Sculpture in Paper” by Ralph Fabri. Nothing abstract in the book, all about making 3-dimensional people and animals out of paper.

- “The Complete Guide to Rubber Stamping”, by Grace Taormina  

Or, pick any TWO of the following:

- This piece of ranch-themed (?) fabric (it’s draped from the top of the bed downward, for scale)

- squishy mold for ice cubes, soaps, etc.

- Vintage Strawberry Shortcake "Spank the Berry Bird" card game. The cards are in the same style as the rest of the old Strawberry Shortcake illustrations, but they do not have any images of the characters themselves, with the exception of the Berry Bird. 

- Vintage "Little Cindy" doll 

- Animal print fabric pack - faux fur/plushie material (it doesn’t look or feel like real fur) with a yard or 2 of plain cotton (?) leopard print

- 12x12” scrapbook paper grab-bag - mainly modern girlie style and bright colors, 20+ sheets, very few duplicates 

- Black beaded necklace with pink and crystal accents. Those are Barbie feet down in the corner, for scale. 

- Small glass paints in multiple colors, from beginners kits, with an applicator. I’ll include the instructions from the original pseudo-stained glass kit.

- 50+ sheets of very thin and soft, pale pink mulberry/kozo paper, approx. 8.5 x 11". Perfect for valentines or wedding invitations, IMO.

- Book entitled "Water" for altered book project. It's an old USDA Agricultural Yearbook publication, available online in full-text, but the best part is this great bookcover of a disembodied cow head arising from the water! I've already pulled out several pages to facilitate less-bulky altering; my original idea was to make the book about this cow named Water who was out for revenge...but the idea never went anywhere. It's got good potential, though: 

- 4 handmade journals made from recycled materials. I will try to send ones that match your taste. This one is just a sample front and back:

- Frame decorated with fortunes from fortune cookies and bits of color here and there. Includes the wall-mount hardware.

- 3 beaded safety pin cuff bracelets - 1 small purple with sequins, 1 medium reddish, 1 large (the rainbow one).

- Set of 50-55 wooden dominoes in box

- Set of vintage books for recon, altering, etc. None have any illustrations, to speak of. The small, dark one has the title, “Stories of My Home Folks”. Not shown but part of the set is another old book entitled, "Questions Boys Ask." Cover is light blue with a big question mark on it. Some pages missing, but covers all the essentials with that unmistakeable mid-20th century flavor.

- “Vastu Vidya Handbook: The Indian Feng Shui” by Juliet Pegrum

Or, pick one of the following:
- Thick book of variety of sheer fabric samples, most white or off-white but several colors as well. 

- Bob Marley book, by Margaret E Ward (ISBN #0681418664). 80 pages. Good condition, has TONS of color and b&w images, it could be kept for its original booky purpose or torn into for reuse of the images.

- 4 matching vintage schoolhouse cutouts. Appr. 8" tall, some with a reversed design so they can be placed back-to-back. Small hole in the top of each. Would make a great cover for a round-robin journal/book about school life.

- Rolls of color-coded stickers with days of the week, in a few languages. They're in a floppy plastic enclosure that keeps them together. 

- 3-d paper Muppet Show centerpiece, circa 1980. 

- Vintage embossing kit - pretty much all that‘s left is the 6 vials of embossing powder (copper, gold, silver, red, blue, and green):

- Set of 8 pulp paperbacks with cool covers (If you just want the covers and not the insides of the books, you can claim something else from any part of my list because the postage won’t be nearly as expensive that way)

- Pick 5 vintage children’s picture books from the following photos. “Moonbeam” and “California Plant/Animal Communities” have already been taken.  Newest of these are from the early 1980s:

- Vintage half-apron with pocket. Has some small grease-stains on it.

Happy claiming!

Ack what to choose! So many awesome things there calluna! I'm loving those vintage little girl patterns, but I'm sucking it up and claiming:
3 vintage books, (Wise Dog, Child Craft and the Pirate one!) and the mulberry paper.

This is my fifth pick (I get three at a time). 2 rec'd, one sent out today, one pending...

Here is what I have to offer:

Choose 1 for a claim:

Screennprinted Audrey Hepburn tee. Pale aqua with gold ink, American Apparel size small, but it's really long. Would be cute reconned into a tank or tube top.

Handmade (but not by me) large cotton tote bag with fuschia lining and inside pocket

Large canvas tote with faux leather buckle handles and zipper closure

Choose 2 of the following as 1 claim:

Sport themed 3d stickers (what you see is all that is left)

Classic Pooh 3d stickers

Wallpaper borders, great for paper crafters! I have four rolls (have to dig up the rest!)

McCalls Pattern 3792 The 2 Hour Jacket:

McCalls Pattern Blouse/Vest:

Two leatherette passport holders, black and cranberry, one silver money/gift envelope:

One "Girls Rock" college ruled notebook, new

Scrap packs: let me know a theme (baby theme, asian theme, etc.) or color scheme and I will put together a pack of ephemera, paper, ribbons, trims, etc. for your scrapbooking/altered art!

Handmade Vintage Valentines with envelopes (set of 4) all in this style, but not all exactly the same!

1 2008 pocket planner, navy blue (sorry I don't have a photo. I can take one later, though!)

10 of the following equal 1 claim:

Sheets of scrapbooking paper, let me know a color scheme or theme and I'll send you a selection

CDs for your crafting or listening pleasure! I have about 70 CDs without cases; mostly they are 90s rap and hard rock.  Some are pretty scratched, but most are playable if you actually want to listen to them! Good for photo albums, coasters, or any other project you can think up! Let me know if you want to know what artists I have and I can list, or let me know how many you want for a project.

Hello my peoples...
Everyone's feedback should be up to date right now, it's just em0tionalprayer, purpleone, and me who don't have the feedback yet. If you're somebody other than the 3 of us and the feedback didn't get into your profile, please let me know so I can correct it.

Thanks for being good swappers for me!  I hope you'll join the new round if you haven't already! Kiss
