I received from aisy today, and I managed to coax my dying camera into taking one picture.

She sent me "a dangerous stowaway" named Ingela, and a painting of a lady knight. Wow!



Thank you, aisy! I hope you enjoyed your package as well.

Oooh, hooray, the gallery has started!!  XD  That dangerous stowaway is awesome; is she from something in particular?  And I love the stylized clouds in the painting! Smiley

I got my package from whatthepuck a couple days ago but I was so busy I couldn't open it and post pics until now  Shocked


My two lovely things!


A very blurry but shinnnyyy pic of my bracelet. Chain mail! It's pretty darn great  Cheesy very warrior-esque  Wink


And a simple, bold and beautiful dragon silhouette painting! The dragon looks like Toothless, which I LOVE. The background color is my FAVORITE shade of blue \o/ Fraking love it! Now just gotta find the perfect place Wink

Thank you whatthepuck and roler for a terrific swap!

Oooh, more fun stuff!!

I agree, the dragon looks like Toothless which is a big plus!!  And the bright contrast is really pretty. Smiley  The chain mail bracelet is really cool too!  Great package!

Meanwhile, I got my package from noelle, and OMG YOU GUYS I'M KINDA FREAKING OUT ABOUT IT!!!

First, there's this incredible appliqued Viking dragon, Celtic knot style:

Isn't it gorgeous?! I don't know how she got all those lovely curves without any wrinkles!!  Just amazing!!!

And is if that weren't enough (seriously I'd be blown away by either one of these pieces alone), she ALSO sent this amazing knight piece!!

How freaking cool is that?!!?  I'd put up a bunch of pictures from illuminated manuscripts on my pinterest, and mentioned that I love the quirky pictures of knights fighting snails and other whimsical enemies, and she combined a bunch of different images and ideas to come up with this incredible picture!!  Just look at that excited little rabbit charging into the fray as the knight on the right cowers before the giant snail!!  Seriously, I love EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS.

Here's a closer shot so you can see some more detail:


Thank you SO MUCH, noelle; my walls are about to get a whole lot more awesome!! XD

Noelle! Your embroidery is so whimsical! Well done! I LOVE you included a snail and a rabbit in such a classic scene.

Is the Celtic knot in felt, fabric, or a seen flattened tube? I can't tell, but it's so wonderful! Roler is right - I love how you executed the curves without any wrinkles. Zoinks!

Joyful

i love the face painting on Ingela, and the chainmaille bracelet too!

thanks! the dragon is a fabric strip cut on the bias (the fabric has a bit of a nubbly texture). i ironed the edges under and then hand stitched it to the background.
