I received mine today. I am very happy with it. My boyfriend was impressed with the amount of work that went into it.


He even readily agreed that it is nicer than the one I sent. Maybe too quickly. I am now questioning how I finished it. Maybe it needed something more...

Thank you I do like it, the colors are perfect.

Hey ysmeine! (and boyfriend)

I'm incredibly relieved you like it! I have no idea why it didn't curl into a pouch the way it was supposed it? But I switched gears and it's uber thick, so will work perfectly as a hot pad. Thank you so much for being a great swap partner!

Hey Abbeeroad

Yes, it's old skool macram using embroidery floss.  

Here's the center piece:


Then I cheated and stitched new fabric over a hot pad (so I wouldn't have to find heat resistant guts).  I have never mitered corners before and they turned out a bit wonky (sorry ysmeine), but...overall I'm satisfied:


thanks Always - Ysmeine said her favorite color was brown so I tried to use it often as the anchor color, but probably should have reversed it to show better?

It's super gorgeous and looks like it was a ton of work, I would like to see a closer closer-up of those yummy stitches. Bet it feels wonderful to touch too. It's so different from what I'm making. I can't wait to see everybody's creations, this gallery is going to be GREAT!
