I have to get my gushing out first. So much has happened!

Nostephot's Badger badge cracked me up as much as it impressed me with her stitching.

Nooo's sparkly fish is too cute, the sequins are really well done, considering how tiny...and I agree the itsy landscape is amazing. Plus her bird is fabulous, I love the beadwork and adding the feathers was genius. The little hootie owl is so sweet.

Leslieshappyheart's owl is so expressive and detailed - just wow. And your little chicken is so intricate and adorable.

Bobomom's little kawaii blob is so cute (even if I don't know what it is lol) and her librarian Snoopy and teensy Woodstock is wonderful.

Thimble71's landscapes are amazing as is the Rosalind Russell ( I agree that her's is the Mame to see). Love all the beads.

Amymarie78's Stitch was perfect and the apple critter was almost mezmerizing in its adorable stare Smiley . I also love her bacon and I am really envious of the little mushroomy hedgehog one!!

Kimbles ginger kitty and stag badges are really well done. The stag could just walk off that! I LOVE her "Grow" badge, very creative. I love the earth cutaway too..deliciously nerdy.

Jillybean's Horde badge was obviously sent to the wrong person...I'm positive it should be mine and the little controller was great! Nice details. Apparently the two packets got mixed up AND sent out wrong, because I am sure Neill Patrick Harris actually requested that Dr. Horrible badge for me as I am his biggest fan (72% percent chance of that). The Swap organizer is great..love the color combo.

I love Interrobam's drawing, very fun...love your style! The hummingbird is insanely detailed and darling. And the teeny leaf within a leaf fox badge is so adorable. Kudos for that stitching work!

Now on to my fun!!  I got my badges yesterday from hgddm! I don't think she realized what one would mean to me....completely accidental. She found some vintage tattoo style badges on my Pinterest and changed it around a bit and made an original one that brought me to tears. I lost my mom three years ago and we had a long standing running joke about getting tattoos (we were both to chicken to do it, my mom also joked about already having ink from radiation treatment) and the only tattoo she said I could get would be an old fashioned "Mom" tattoo. So after she passed I finally became a mother myself through adoption, under weird, almost comical situations, that several people have commented reminds them of something my mom would have orchestrated (she was a world class meddler).

So sometimes I talk to my mom when I am taking a moment away from my now almost 20 month old toddler and the other day I commented that I wished she could see her grandson, because he was quite a mess. Then yesterday I pop open this....

A perfect rendition of the tattoo I would be allowed to have. It was like a sign that I was doing good...we were very silly together, me and mom, and I'm trying to continue that with my little man. We laugh a lot around here now Cheesy!
And with it a darling badge with embossed paper flowers in my current favorite combination of coral and aqua! It has lots of gorgeous stitching that I don't think can really be done justice to with my photography skills.

Thank you Linsey...it is exactly what I needed.

I cant believe my last comment was on page 9 this gallery has exploded
Thimbles71 love those little landscapes particularly the lighthouse
Amymarie78 the apple is gorgeous and what paint do you use on Stitchs face? Mmmmm bacon and hedgehogs (not together of course)
Kimbles that is some amazing stitching on the Patronus and the grow and earth badges
Jillybean I love the colours and stitching on WoW badge and I WANT that Dr Horrible badge
Interrobam I love the design of the hummingbird and the leaves/fox combo
Lylyfai  - your story about your mom and your badge from hdggm brought a tear to my eye how amazing and what a wonderful badge

Phew - I need to not leave it so long between replying  Shocked

Awww.. I'm really touched by the story, Lylyfai! I love when life thows us one of those little "coincedences"...and the old fashioned tatoo design is precious Grin

Hey everyone!  I got some wonderful little felt badges from fancybutch!

here they are all together along with a lovely (handmade?) card...

and here are some thumbnails of more detailed shots...
the luna moth is my absolute favorite!!!

the adorable toad who looks like he's on a lilypad...

and a teeny tiny delicate little needlefelted raven...
I'm thinking of putting this one in a tiny frame because it looks like a tiny little work of art!

fancybutch says it's her first time making badges, but I would never have guessed!  I love them all!  Thanks fancybutch!

I left for a week and came back to such eye candy in the gallery! SO MANY AWESOME. My squee at Jilly's Dr. Horrible badge was particularly loud, however.

I had two absolutely incredible and gorgeous and perfect badges from PerfectlyBohemian waiting for me. I am in AWE of these badges. Feast-so-much your eyes on these badboys:

Mexican Folk-Art inspired owl. I love owls! It's funny how we both chose to send each other owls Cheesy Because they rock. I feel that my wee simple owl in no way measures up to this beautiful detail! I adore this. So. Much.

And this beautiful needle-felted toucan!!! How gorgeous, right? Jealous? Smiley I am going to make this into a brooch, so I can show it off all over the place! This is very special to me, and I'm so glad she chose to make a toucan. They're kind of a symbol of hope to me, so very very special.

A group shot with the lovely card, also wonderful Smiley

Thank you SOOOOO MUCH, PerfectlyBohemian!!! I absolutely love.

Let's swap lil gelli prints or ATCs!

I'm so glad you liked it all, nooo! I love owls, and I saw the owl figurine on your pinterest and just had to mimic it. (I really love my cute, simple one from you though because it is much more the style that I like Smiley ). It took me a couple runs to get the semi-2D/3D needle-felted toucan, but since you made it very clear that you love toucans, I knew I wanted it to work, so Tah-dah!
