Excited to see what everyone has made. My package from AlmostDawn should be here soon. The tracking said today, but it didn't come. Sad Hopefully I will have her package out soon.

I got an awesome package today from Fin!
I want to wait until I can use my boyfriend's camera to take pictures since it's so much nicer than mine. I will tell you though, I love it all!

As promised, I have some pictures to share with you.

First off, I never finish a pair of items when I knit, so this is the only pair of handmade wrist warmers that I own. I love the color of them, and the cable work is very nice.



I was very much hoping to get some amigurumi when I saw that FinRaziel listed them as something she was skilled at. I have never gotten the hang of them myself. As soon as I opened the box, I knew exactly who she had.



Dany's silver hair is what really gave it away. I saw it and just knew. I had listed the couple  as some of my favorite and after watching the show last week I'm glad I did.



Just look at how awesome Drogo is! He's even got hoop earrings. His mustache is braided, and looks all buff.



Even better, if you look at Drogo from behind, there are bells in his hair. I know there has to be, but it's still so awesome that they're there.



Thanks so much FinRaziel. I really love everything.

hmmm - well, it seems that my husband deleted all the pictures off the camera, probably in an effort to be 'helpful'. Unfortunately, there went the pictures of the things I sent to Oxynitrate (figures!). So, in her package was: a white crocheted shawl; two shawl pins - one in a series of figure eights, the other horseshoe shaped. both were made of galvanized steel - the latter had a brass wire twisted around it with small beads to make it look like flowers. (Oxynitrate said that she loved the house of Highgarden, so I based most of the crafts on that.) I painted a Tudor style rose on a glass mug; gave some tea with rosehips in it (I can't remember the type, sorry!); and some soaps. I think that was about it. I really am sorry I don't have pictures!

That all sounds really amazing. I'm hoping we get to see some pictures of all of that soon. I've never been able to crochet anything as large as a shawl.

Also, Don't forget to send me a message letting me know that you have received your package when you get it, and please show off all you loot with some pics.

just received today from Oxynitrate - I was thrilled, even more so that it was delivered to my house, not just a tag from where the postie pretends to try to deliver, but really just leaves it at the nearest office for me to go get. Where was I? right! pictures!  I got a lovely suede covered notebook, reminiscent of the black brothers:


 
a sweet little box with an ominous warning on the outside

but a treasure within!


a shadowbox clock


some bath bombs that hearken unto the Tyrells


and an extra of two keychains for me and the husband!

wow hearthstones, but they almost have a rose like effect

That's an awesome notebook, and I like the chain necklace too.

I'm glad you liked everything FinRaziel. Just so everyone else knows, the embroidery is  supposed to be the crest that Brienne has painted on her shield. I knew that's what I had wanted to do but the book doesn't give a very clear description, so after some digging I found out that she is a descended of Ser Duncan the Tall, and that was his crest. It also glows in the dark  Wink


Business note: I'll be taking care of feedback this weekend, it will be done by Monday at the latest as that's the two week point from send outs. I've heard from everyone, but don't forget to put up pictures if you haven't.
*Feedback Given!

I have a couple of pics of the things I sent thedish! (I hope you're feeling better partner! <3)

She wanted things on the useful side which took me a second to figure out as I tend to be a mostly decorative sort of girl.

Luckily there was a hoopla wall! So I stitched up a pair of hoops.



The hoops are on top of a shawl/scarf/shoulder wrap that I made. Yarn and I have some issues. But my DH made the joke one night when I was stitching on the hoop "Winter is Coming....Bundle Up". It made me laugh and I couldn't resist making some sort of bundly item. My camera ate the other picture I took of it. It really is time to buy a new camera.

And lastly...



Dragon Eye Box. Before this piece I had really only played around with clay and tried to make little food things. I'm rather proud of how it came out.

That dire wolf hoop is amazing. I love how neat and clean it looks. I'm also impressed with you dragon eye box. I think you did really well, and not just for something that's new to you.

hahahha - "bundle up" - because several years of winter are really just a minor discomfort   lol.  The hoops are beautiful - and I like the color of the shawl!

Has anyone thought of what sort of orbit their planet must have in order to have several years of winter? I mean, not to be overly involved, but I'd sure like to see the science! lol

Thanks!

I painted the wolf actually. Stitching is new to me and can come out a bit wonky but I love to paint. So I painted him on and then added just some simple white stitches to make it more interesting.

I'm even more impressed with your painting then. It's another thing I'm bad at.

Yes, I have. Every time I find an article on exoplanets I really can't help but think about Game of Thrones. I know I found an article once that described some really funky elliptical orbit of something or other. I'm glad I'm not the only one giving this thought!

Thanks for posting pics Al. Unfortunately I have been in the hospital again and I am just so sad that I haven't gotten your stuff finished yet. I was soooo excited about this swap. Sad I absolutely loved everything you sent though, especially the hoops since I loooove my hoopla wall!
