This is my third claim of three.

Hi everyone!!  I'm Roxanne!  I'm a 40 with a hubby, a 3 year old daughter, a mom, a parrotlet named Greenie (can you guess what color his is) and a fish named Nemo....well Nemo 2 something happened to Nemo. I'm originally from Hawaii, so even though I live in Maryland now I'm a local girl at heart! I've dabbled in lots of different crafts.  My true love is pottery, but I haven't done that in quite a while now.  Lately I've been beading though I'm cutting back and making felties and simple amigurumis. And thanks to all of you wonderful craftsters my latest endeavor is trying to spin wool.


-lucite flower beads that are stackable BIG WISH!

Crafted items:

- 25 crocheted frogs (just the frog) from the pattern here:
I can provide the pattern and can do a personal swap for some of my jewelry or a drop spindle/roving to make up the rest since this is such a big request. This is so that I can make hats for Lana's classmates.
BIG WISH!  Thank you farmgirljane!!! 

- embroidered rainbow tee for Lana  BIG WISH!  Thanks quilted!!

- embroidered Sublime stitching tee from one of the patterns above for Lana  BIG WISH!

- Screened tee with wings on back of tee for Lana

- zippered pouches made with Japanese kawaii fabric...love small animal prints

- handknit socks for Lana.. big feet--size 11 kids shoe.

- amigurumi.  I would love a hansigurumi octopus.  I also have a few patterns of things that I love and could provide you with.

- crocheted sea critters see https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=161851.msg1757300;topicseen#msg1757300 for examples

- crocheted giraffe hat like the one in my wist

- toys/dollies like on my wist...but no pie please.  Smiley

Thanks in advance for choosing me!!

Thank yous to quilted, Dulcinea, and farmgirljane!!

I claim girlosun_9 for Cloth Napkins (non serged edges, rather two pieces sewn right sides together then turned right side out and topstitched)

This is my third claim of three.  None sent (two will go out this week!!) and none recieved.

Hello there !!
Im Tammy.  Im 35 and im a stay at home mom to three boys in NE OH.  I like to sew, quilt.  I am starting to get into embroidery and can crochet a little bit.  Im very much into girly type stuff and love anything regency -titanic era. I also love 30s-40s things as well.  I am allerigc to nickel.
Here are my wishes
First off any surprise off my wist list is great!!

My anniversary is at the end of next month.  Im looking for some items that I can give to my wonderful hubby!!!  Here are a few ideas!!  Im really hoping to spoil him!!
He love asian things so that is a fail safe!!  He is also a long time practicitioner of Ninjutsu.
~~Asian decorated chopsticks.  Something manly  Cheesy
~~Cotton sole tabi shoes.  size 10.5
~~Are you an artist??  A hand drawn picture of Soke Hatsumi Sensi  Here is an idea of who he is and what he looks like http://www.bujinkan.com/
~~I dont have a pattern for one but would love a nice Hapi Coat for him!!  Folkwear has a great one.  Im looking for the pattern only unless someone really really wants to make it lol.

Big Wishes include:
**Beaded or crocheted/knitted Miser Bag example like this http://www.onceuponapattern.com/59.html or this one http://www.somewhereintime.tv/antiques/miser.html (im not asking for exact replicas of these. However it is ok if they are lol !!).
**Civil War Era Cape called a Mathilde Mantilla (Think of a Civil War era Poncho.  This is basically what it is)  Here is a link to the pattern http://www.uvm.edu/%7Ehag/godey/images/s5902170.jpg  and here is an example of what it looks like http://www.thegracefullady.com/civilwargowns/ready-mades_silkmantle.htm Measurements will be provided.  Wool blend or Corduroy would be great. Hood is decrotive and is not functional. It only uses around 3 yards.  I would also prefer it lined for warmth. It would be great if I could retain the pattern as well for future projects.  (I can sew I just cant figure out how to make it <frown>) without a predrafted pattern.  OR If someone with any drafting skills wouldnt mind drafting a pattern to my size I could play around with it and make my own (If I have a pattern to work with)
Knitting and Crocheted Items

Crafted Items
Bars of handmade soap (the kind that is made from lye).  I have always wanted to try it!!  Lavender, oatmeal, goats milk, citrus are great however any scents are welcome!!  Or soap supplies as I would love to learn how to make my own. Premade bars are appreciated as I have young children and am concerned with having lye in the house.   Gonna take a break this round lol
Ive always been curious about those soap bombs.  My kids would probally love them !!  Also jars of bath salts would be fantasic as well.
A beaded Victorian Choker would be lovely.

A whimsey (spelling??) jar would be really fun!!

Collected Items
I collect cookbooks from the victorian and ewardian eras !!  Or earlier if you can find them.
Godeys Ladies Book (In later years it was Godeys Ladies Magazine)!!!  Ebay has them frequently just type in Godeys and they will come up.  They were like the victorian Vogue Magazine of the day.  Petersons Magazines are great too.  You can usually get these pretty inexpensively and all years 1830-1890s are welcome !!  I paid anywhere from $4-$9 for the few I have.  Dont worry duplicates are fine.

I claim Rain for some embroidery hoops, stitch markers and something from her wist.

This is my first claim (0 sent, 0 received)

I am 27 years old and live in Wisconsin with my husband and our two cats. I work as a conservation specialist, so I love crafts that reflect nature and/or reuse and recycle materials. I also like funky, freaky, weird, cool, unusual craft items. My favorite colors are chocolate brown, blue and green, but I like any colors/patterns as long as they are visually stimulating and dont make my eyes bleed.

On to the wish list:

Crafted Items
-   Reuseable shopping bags- my goal is to eliminate my use of plastic and paper bags when I shop and I cant sew, so I need help to meet that goal. I like this design, but I am pretty flexible.

-   Reuseable bags for veggies- kind of like the ones in my wist.

-   Art work for my new house. I have a lot of bare walls that look so sad it makes me want to hug them and tell them its not that I dont love you- its just that I suck at making things pretty enough to hang on you

-   Crochet hook roll

-   Any type of vintage paper items and/or colorful images- old ads, childrens books, magazines. Basically I am looking for stuff to make greeting cards and collages

-   An apron. I really like these styles

-   A calorimetry

-   Anything knitted. I am in awe of anyone who can knit. Ive tried multiple times, but I think I have been crocheting too long and I cant learn new movements ( at least that is what I tell myself every time I try and fail) So if any one wants to make me something knitted, you will be my hero

-   Anything to do with the Sandman Comics by Neil Gaiman, The Simpsons, Ani Difranco, or The Office (U.K or U.S)

-   Hand carved rubber stamp- I will take anything you would like to make for me

-   Anything to do with native prairie flowers and grasses

-   Anything from my wist

-   Needle Felting kit- Ive always wanted to learn, but I dont know how nor do I have any supplies
-   Buttons- new or vintage
-   Safety eyes- I would love weird or different looking eyes
-   Yarn- Ive only ever used acrylic yarn, so I would love to work with some quality and/or homespun yarn
-   Felt- especially different colors/patterns that you dont usually see

I claim igobylorib for "anything with birds on it (particulary sparrows and owls) like a thimble, figurine, stuffie, pincusions, etc" and possibly "Anything for my daughter's new American Girl doll named Lucy."

This is my first claim, 0 sent, 0 received.

List in a second...

I live in Oregon.  I work in an office by day and craft by night.  I like cooking, crafting with fabric, collecting craft supplies, painting, and crocheting.  I am new to sewing and quilting and make lots of plushie toys.  I love earth tones, greens, browns, and blues.  I like gnomes, hedgehogs, nearly all forest creatures, eating healthy, trying new recipes, and organic gardening.  I like things inspired by nature and appreciate recycled/reused items that are gentle on the earth.  I do not want anything made of leather or fur, please.

Crochet/Knitted Hat with cat ears like this one

Slippers like these in an earth tone: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12662.0

*New Fabric-- Cute Japanese, Heather Ross/Amy Butler, 1930's feedsack prints/reproductions, vintage prints, Cotton fabrics for all projects especially quilt-making (see wist for inspiration) I am not picky about this, any patterned or solid fabrics you think I would like will probably make me happy.  I will take scraps or yardage if you are trying to destash.
