What brand of clay is that?  I don't recognize the wrapper.   Cheesy
Me either.

I have taken photos I'm just waiting for my BF to send them to me, as I took them with his significantly better camera on the weekend. Will post as soon as he sends them.

It's Sculpy Studio

Hurray! I am FINALLY posting photos. I was so excited when I opened up these babies on the weekend  Shocked Shocked

First off the kit I received from the lovely mljohnston... Silk screening:

It includes all the stuff I need to silk screen fabric. She included lots of colours!

Plus she sent along two of her lovely prints:

I love this one so much:

AND, as if it wasn't enough she sent some candy too. I've eaten most of it, the bags were fuller when they came. Those flying saucers are so addictive:

Then, because she is so sweet spotnik sent me a kit too!!! I sent her a wet felting and a needle felting kit, and she said because I was making two kits she would send me one (it was a three way swap). I was not expecting this.

A HUGE crochet kit:

And the lovely yarn. Such perfect colours for me I love the pink and burgundy wool/ silk.

Hopefully I can make as quick progress as ML has on her crochet kit.

Thank you thank you thank you to both the lovely and wonderful mljohnston and spotnik!


New items added to my Etsy!

Great job!  You should've seen my first project - it was crazy - what was supposed to be a square ended up being sort of a triangle.   Cheesy

Oh, Lord, my first scarf had a sort of bulge in the middle and a point at one end. My Gram was tickled by it. We found it when we were cleaning out her things when she passed away...and laughed all over again.

Bwahaha, that's great. It's nice to hear (well, read) that it's normal to have oddities in the beginning. Cheesy

I'm glad you liked everything doyouloveanapple! And that it got there in one piece. ;]

had a bit of a personal crisis and disappeared. plans on fixing in progress...

Chomping at the bit to get this negative feedback cleared so I can swap again!

Crap! I just posted pictures in the wrong thread!! Here they are, in the right board...
This is what I sent doo_leroux.

and a close up of the sample bag I made:

I sent enough fabric, notions, and detailed handwriten instructions for both a velcro pouch/wristlet, and a larger tote bag. If anyone would like to see the instructions, I can email the attachment.
Sorry for the delay on photo posting!

I received a wonderful package on cross-stitch. Thank you!

Everything together: two hoops, two pillowcases, some different patterns (ZOMGZOMBIES!), embroidery floss galore, scissors, a stitch ripper, a very nice instruction book and a cute little pouch with cherries done on it! She def outdid herself and made my package look bad Smiley

The book and a project, completed

A sample page from the book.

Thank you so much! This was a great project and an unexpected find!

Thank you to 1boy1girl1kitty2 for organizing.

I just wanted to share with you guys the outcome of my attempted Orange Soap.  If you remember from my previous post, I tried to make Orange Soap and mis-read the instructions and used fresh oranges rather than dryed orange slices.  So, I waited the 2 weeks like the instructions said then sliced the soap and the oranges were really gross and wet still!  So, I ended up picking all the orange slices out and re-melted the soap and made just regular bars of soap with it (without the orange slices).

So I haven't been able to start my quilt due to lack of iron for pressing, but I bit the bullet and got one this weekend. It's tiny and cute and perfect for crafting. Anyway, here are some crappy teaser pics I took with my phone.

My cat really enjoyed hanging out in my used strip pile. She also enjoyed staring at the needle on the machine. I was worried for awhile she'd try and swat at it while I was using it.

I turned my dining room into a quilter's cove last night. The iron is it the forefront of the pic. I just can't get over how awesome this iron is. It's small, heats up fast, sits great no matter where the cord is, and was only 20 bucks! I'm sure it'd be great for travel too, in the off change I ever need to iron clothing while on a trip. Anyway, getting the machine out for the first time in years has me eye-ing my closet of "to-do" sewing junk.

I really got into it and made all 6 squares at once last night. Then when I laid them out, I realized that I have more then enough fabric to make another 6 squares. So I did. I almost made another six on top of that.. but decided I should sleep. I also decided to modify the pattern of the quilt to make it much bigger, so I can use it for more then a lap quilt. Also, the fabric for the squares is really busy, so I'm breaking that up with some neutral fabric between them. I should get the front done tonight and post better pictures. WOOOOO!!

Thank you donniesgirl! I still can't get over how much I love this fabric.

Just your average knitting whore.
