What a cool cheese hoop! Love the faux batik.
Ooh, pretty fiber...

Oh, my goodness. The Westley shirt!
Haha! Steak-loving squirrel...

Yay, I love UntouchableFace's contribution to my altered book!

So much depth with the colors, and the artwork on top is perfect. The surface feels like a kind of vinyl, which is really unexpected since this is a somewhat brittle old book. I'm so glad the altered book bug bit you!  Grin (as in getting hooked on making art in books -- not as in biting insects being in this book, for the record.)

And as a pretty awesome bonus, she also sent me 3 skeins of reclaimed sweater yarn!
I've never had this much of one kind of yarn before, and I've just figured out the basics of crocheting, so thanks to this generosity I can actually make something of substance now that isn't a conglomeration of different scraps!  Smiley (I do love scrappy projects, but I also want to attempt something solid.)

BIG thanks, and I'd be happy to art-up something for you any time!  Kiss

Wonderful! You know I want to get that book from you, calluna. Better guard it carefully.  Cool

Ack been busy and got behind in commenting but I'm trying to make amends  Smiley

Kaz - The comma hoop is hysterical! I think the superhero cape just puts it over the top

Loves - The fuzzy little sheep is so darling, and the chef aprons are clever!

indigo_roses - I too covet that shrug you made! The color the shape, everything!

OGD - You make my jaw drop, you make the TM style look so stunning and perfect! I can't wait to see more from you in this style.

RaraAvis - The HP mug rugs are seriously cute! As are the light plates.

Averia - I always love your stitching! So neat, and you must have worked your hands to the bone getting that package done.

Untouchableface - I am seriously drooling over that red/aqua yarn!!! I want to squeeze it and pet it and own it! And your contribution to calluna's altered book is amazing!!!

fiddlegirl8 - Wow, just wow - the entire package was thoughtful and touching. I know we craftsters live for a package like that! My favorite is the pear pincushion

Ffrogg - Im in awe of that owl hoop. The colors just explode off the black background. Great job!

StickerChic87 - Awesome package! That fabric book is amazing!

Teachart - Love the cheese hoop! I seriously need to try that faux batiking method soon. And the woodland sampler is seriously so precious. The squirrel and meat is my favorite part!

calluna - Yummy fiber porn. Thank you for the viewing. The batt you made looks like strawberries and ice cream to me for some reason.

redstar13 - The peacock feathers are so lovely!

Happy Easter!!

In typical me fashion, i didn't realize that i missed some new entries here.

ahhhh THAT BAG, onegroovyday! it's like having a mini autobiography to take wherever LHH goes. each part is amazing, together--crazy amazing. extras? yikes! did you not sleep during this swap?! everything is so crisp and gorgeous. the two of you did such a creative dance here at the Chillin--it was great watching you.

great mug rugs, RaraAvis--so cool. Those clutches are really lovely, too.

nice t-shirts--that Pipsqueak is hysterical.

Fun hoops--i wish i could get that embroidery thing really going. the "always sunny' tags give it a real nice finish.

Gorgeous owl hoop--wow.

I love that clutch by stickerchic87 and that fabric book is awesome! i love that. that envelope pouch--also crazy wow. beautifully made and so fun.

teachart--that cheese hoop is WILD! i never saw such an homage to a swiss wedge--but i also think that it's totally deserving! and that wilderness hoop also--crazy great. that is really art. everything that you make--it's just true art.

cool hair fashion by redstar13--and jillybeans your hair is so beautiful--that all worked out perfectly!

beautiful page by UntouchableFace, wow. i love the colors and especially the inkwork.

Brava to all in the gallery!

I'm also drooling over everything fiber I've seen!  Smiley

Pioneer9 has received and asked me to post photos of what I sent.

I sent 4 ATCs and 8 inchies.  I had 10, but accidentally vacuumed up two. Sad

And an apron that I made a stencil for and painted with fabric paint.
