Ongoing Wish Swap Round 134 February 2017

Click here for the Gallery/Discussion for round 134

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rscowtown
Sign-up date range: 2/1/2017---2/28/2017
Claim date range 2/1/2017---2/28/2017 (some claims made near the end of the month will have a ship by date in the following month)
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after the date of the claim

Limited to a certain number of people? No, heck no! when the wall are starting to bow and the ceiling looks like its gonna cave in, we will just get a bigger room!

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO--everyone is warmly welcomed! Hey Tell us about where YOU live! share some pix, slap some up on a new pinterest board, let us stalk you from afar....and long to visit you!

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES you betcha, and I got a great co-organizer all lined up
- Is at least 18 years old: YES im gonna be 55 this year wheeeee!

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative comments: YES
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES


Details of swap:

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

The size of the claim should be a medium item. This means 2 or more crafting hours (this is not cooking time, drying time, etc.. waiting around for something to set up.......it is craft time for the average crafter) or supplies worth at least $20.

ABOUT SENDING AND RECEIVING...
1) When you send to the person you have claimed, you MUST PM the organizer with the delivery confirmation # or if you are outside the US, you need to either PM the customs number on your receipt from the post office or upload a copy of your post office receipt.

2) When you receive a claim, you MUST PM the organizer so she can update the main list.

3) NEW!!!! We are asking that everyone post once a week in the discussion/gallery board--so that we know you're still here with us Smiley  Obviously, if you join mid month, you would only need to post for the weeks you are in the swap (the last 2 weeks cuz you weren't in the swap during the first 2 weeks).

If you post:  "I'm still here but swamped with work!" that's ok! If you want to post a big rambling note about what you did during the week, that's ok too. Don't forget to comment on the awesome items folks are receiving from their claims!

Did you make something that you'd just love to make again? Post it in the discussion and suggest that mebby someone add it to their wish list so you mebby could claim them! I had lots of paint and brushes left over from when I taught One Stroke Painting classes (am a certified One Stroke Painting Instructor). Some of those brushes and paints were sent to a new home(s) cuz they don't like sitting in my storage rooms down in the store. Do you have extra stuff that needs a new home? list it in a post, and give us a nudge to add it to our wish lists!

Go ahead, check out your excess or duplicate things, mention them in this swap's discussion board and perhaps they too will soon be winging their way to a new home where they will be used!

Let's keep the discussions going and maybe growing--ideas for some games we can do in the discussion/gallery board? I would be more than happy to supply some prizes!

These 2 required PM's are part of communication and are used when giving feedback for participating in this swap.

If you want to participate, information to send to: rscowtown
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 134 {February 2017}
Craftster username:

Your real name:

1. Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (If not, please read carefully to be sure you do not claim someone outside your country)

2. Confirm that are at least 16 years old: (YES/NO)

3. Do you understand that you are claiming for at least a medium sized item? For this swap a medium sized item means 2 or more crafting hours or over $20 worth of supplies.

4. Are you a Friend of Craftster?

5. How many claims are you allowed? (New swappers--this would be your very first swap ever--1 claim; those who have been in swaps before--2 claims; Friends of Craftster--3 claims) Please type 1, 2 or 3--->

6. Do you agree that you will PM the organizer when you send and when you receive, and if sending, PM the delivery confirmation # or a pic of the receipt if you are outside the US?

7. Do you understand that you should post at once a week in the discussion thread?
 
8. What is love to you?

Any questions?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZER (rscowtown) VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Do not post in this thread until you are ready to make a claim. All discussion needs to be kept in the discussion/gallery thread. Please post at least once in the discussion thread.

When you PM the organizer for sending and receiving please include the name of the swap (including the round) and the due date of the claim.  
I.E.  Sally ----> Suzy for a pink pony saddle due out Jan 1

Please pay close attention to your partners wish list and allergies, likes, dislikes etc. Make sure your own allergy information and your country are prominently displayed in your post.

Do not claim someone while waiting for approval. You may claim as soon as you get approval confirmation.

Have your list including both 15 medium crafted items AND 15 supply items ready before making your first claim (the more you have, the better your chance of getting claimed quickly).

Please include your claims status: How many claims you have made in total, how many are in transit and how many have been received by their intended recipients. i.e/ 4 claims/1 in transit/2 received.

Unsent Claim Limit:
Friend of Craftster: Three
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two


You may claim again once you have shipped a claim but you can not have more than twice your Unsent Claim Limit outstanding at any one time.

If you are a friend of craftster you can have 3 unsent claims open at a time and no more than 6 total claims open (open meaning in transit as well as not yet sent) no matter how many have been posted. As an example, You claim 3 times, send all 3 claims out, then claim 3 more times. Even when you send any or even all of those 3 claims, you can not claim again until a claim has been received. So a person can be 6 claims/3 in transit/0 received. Or 6/6/0 or 8/5/2 or 7/5/1.

If you are not a friend of craftster, you can have at most 2 claims unsent and 4 claims total between unsent and in transit. So 4/2/0 is okay or 5/3/1 or 6/4/2

If this is your first swap, You can have at most one claim in transit and one claim unsent. 2/1/0, 2/2/0, 3/1/1

Please keep in mind that DC#'s are required for all US to US cans and receipts are required for all international claims. If you can not provide a receipt and the item does not arrive you will need to resend the claim.

If you have questions, please PM rscowtown. Welcome to the February 2017 Round 134 of the OWS!

*Reaches the summit and sticks the flag into the peak, claiming spikefan for a gift card, to send by 02/22*

1/0/0

Hello everyone!  I'm Jeanne from midwest USA.  I'm married 32 years to a wonderful man and we have 2 teenaged sons at home (older kids escaped the nest).  Our home is smoke free (allergies plus son has asthma) but we do have a short haired dog that we rescued from the pound.  I enjoy reading, refinishing or  repurposing furniture, and machine sewing at a basic level.  Thanks to arthritis, my hands don't cooperate when it comes to hand sewing or precise skills.  Quilters, knitters/crocheters, embroiderers, and jewelry makers are my heroes- anyone who does intricate detailing.  I like Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, Game of Thrones, AHS, old movies, art history, and retro themes up through 1950s.  Vintage sewing machines and teacups make me smile.
Many thanks to everyone who has previously claimed me!  I adore and appreciate every item, and the thoughtfulness behind each one Smiley
*** Revised list  ***

Likes --
Colors:  Favs are Purples, greens, blues.  I like most of the color wheel except for orange or bright red as a main color (accent is fine).
Flowers:  Peonies, wisteria, hydrangea, plumeria, lilacs, Sweet Woodruff, Ladyslippers, Sweet Peas, Snapdragons
Animals:  Puma/mountain lion (my favorite!), peacock, bluebird, giraffe, deer; the animated Max from the cartoon version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas; Pussyfoot (the kitten that charmed the bulldog).  Dragonflies, cute frogs
Fragrance:  Freshly cut clover, bamboo, lettuce, cinnamon, sage, thyme, peony, lilac, plumeria, wisteria, ylang ylang, orange blossom, teaberry, grapefruit, citrus, pear, mango
Vintage sheets and pillow cases with unusual prints, designs or trims.  Vintage hardware, doorknobs, keyholes, drawer pulls, keys, clock winders.
Bedskirts with pretty fabric (great material source)
Fleur de lis
Plaids, paisley, florals, toile
Medieval, Steampunk and goth (just a touch; love the inspirations but not the gloom part)
Coffee cup people - scaled down version of Coffee Pot People; characters made from cups, etc.  Turn something into a character and give it personality!  Examples:  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/181551428699235796/   http://coffee-pot-people.blogspot.com/
Minions!!  They are the cutest bad guys on the planet lol
HURRAW lip balms!!


Dislikes --
Chevron, things that are strong contrast (black/white checkerboard makes my eyes go wonky, but b/w toile is no problem for me);  Domo, Mickey Mouse; themes focused on gloom, blatant horror (except AHS), vulgar/adult, or juvenile;  I'm allergic to peppermint, almonds, tobacco smoke.  Scents labeled "cotton" or "linen."  The psychedelic 1960s. 


CRAFTY WISH LIST

-- Neckwarmers!  Felted, knitted, crocheted, button, velcro, I love them all. 
-- Ear warmers/headbands.  Sometimes I even sleep with ear and neck warmers on since we do have rough winters.
-- Cute monster stuffie, something like these:  https://www.pinterest.com/pin/499125571179874796/
-- Fingerless gloves and leg warmers
-- A hoopla with any of these themes:  bird, birdhouse, peonies, cross, fleur de lis, giraffe, minions, dragonflies
-- A brooch with steampunk theme
-- Vintage inspired hair clips/combs or barrettes
-- A remote holder that drapes over the arm of a recliner chair
-- Table runner in blues and greens Thank you, Averia!
-- Table runner with fleur de lis at each end for our other table (6 feet long please)
-- Mug rugs - I love the one made for me but could use more for company. 
-- Artwork with a vintage theme - antiques, fashions, yellowed sheet music, old school house, doorways
-- Pottery/clay cup or painted mug
-- Bowl or box to put on my dresser for those little things - spare change, keys, watch, etc.  Any medium, purple tones preferred please.   Thank you, audio!
-- Wood or metal sign with our house numbers for outside
-- Door wreath
-- Upcycled old keys or clock winder: charms, keyfob, necklace, windchime, brooch, magnets
-- Birdhouse - we have bluebirds and cardinals in our yard
-- Decorated clothespins with magnets on the back
-- Books with trivia, inspirational quotes, or interesting artwork
-- Wreck this journal made with your personal touches
-- Something with one of these quotes on it (FQ, hoopla, engraving, etching, wood carving, stamper, stencil, wall art, embroidery, cards/stationery set, mug, wristlet, zipper pouch):
       I'm just mad for tartan
       Balenciaga!
       I sew things.  It's what I do. 
       Always
       It isnt what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.

-- Something recycled/upcycled that you would love to make-   CD case into a photo frame for my desk?  Broken china into a trivet?  Door knob or drawer pulls into a coat rack?  Share your creativity Smiley
-- Gift card for Jo-Ann Fabric, Hobby Lobby, or Michael's craft store
-- Friend or Fanatic Friend of Craftster membership
Some ideas:  https://www.pinterest.com/jsol161/%2B%2B-craftster-wish-list-%2B%2B/


-- SUPPLIES --

D rings -- various sizes -- I've used up the ones RaraAvis sent and can always use more
Overalls buckles - the metal clasp set that hooks the overall bib strap to the chest piece  (like these  http://www.joann.com/search?q=overall%20buckle)
Side release/Parachute buckles 1" wide or smaller - these are the buckles on shopping cart seat belts that squeeze from the sides
1" or 3/4" wide webbing - black, navy, dark purple, or cream are used the most but any color is useful --  I've used up the ones RaraAvis graciously sent already but can always use more for handles and straps.
Threads - all colors are useful; cotton preferred please   **Speaking of threads, I have some spools of embroidery thread that need a good home.  There are variegated, solids, various contents - nylon, rayon, polyester, some unknown content.  Also a few spools that might be for a serger ***
Non-roll elastic - any width
Insul-Brite for inside of hot pads, trivets, etc.
Fabric -- fat quarters or half yards are always useful (or men's dress shirts with buttons all the way down the front- great material source plus the button holes are already there and I don't have to sew on the buttons).  I make tote bags for walkers and wheelchairs, to donate to nursing home residents.  Colorful prints are stimulating.  Michael Miller, Kaufman, RJR, Alexander Henry, and Timeless Treasures are particular favorites but any fabric would be appreciated.
Embroidery scissors - to take with me wherever I haul my project tote, so my larger scissors can stay at home.  Kidlets' school thinks that large scissors are weapons.
Shoelaces -- any colors; longer is better but all are useful
Cellophane bags for wrapping baskets (30x40 inches or larger please, can't find big ones around here)
*Big Wish* Self healing cutting mat, 24 x 36
Templates, stencils, card stock, brayer - for card making


MEDIA

-- Previously read mystery magazines such as Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, The Strand, Alfred Hitchcock Magazine; anything with a collection of short stories that you might have laying around.  I share with nursing home residents.
-- A PICKLE FOR A NICKEL, by Lilian Moore (one of my all time fav books from childhood; used is fine for this or any book)
-- LIBRARY OF SOULS (The Third Novel of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series; I have parts 1 and 2)
-- SPENCER'S MOUNTAIN DVD or book by Earl Hamner Jr.  (This is the story on which the tv show, "The Waltons," was based.  Used is fine.)
-- Anything by Edward Gorey.  I'm intrigued by the glimpses that I've seen/heard about his work.

Anything from My Amazon Wish List:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/W1PI4SJEV4EA/ref=cm_wl_list_o_1?

My Pinterest:  https://www.pinterest.com/jsol161/
         

-- Your experiences and skills might think of something else that isn't listed, but no doubt would be incredibly useful and deeply appreciated Smiley

Thank you for considering me!

Hi I'm Laurel from Wisconsin. Married to Mark for 33 years, mom to a boy 24 and girl 29 and grandma to a 7 year old. We have 3 rescued dachshunds, I love the old ugly ones that no one wants.

OR

you come up with a fun knitting related saying and put it on a tote bag for me to use, drawstring totes are fine, doesn't need to be a huge bag/tote, handles are great, the size of any of the above-ish.

YARN:

mini skeins of this type of yarn: any colors or color packs**new 2/8/17**

https://www.etsy.com/shop/MothyAndTheSquid?ref=l2-shopheader-name&section_id=17960170

Zwerger Garn Opal Harry Potter: its discontinued, but any skeins, any color of this brand would be just awesome to receive!!

Christmas color worsted weight yarn from indie dyers (not the stuff you can get at box stores, i have tons of that) could be red/green, blues, forest/burgundy, candy cane, bad santa, frozen theme. If you type in "hand dyed Christmas worsted yarn" you will find a bunch (hint: i like the night mare before Christmas)

Sock yarn: aka fingering weight yarn, superwash marino/nylon blend preferred. the nylon gives it stretch.

I claim Grab a coffee for jewelry or a scarf (or basically a Pinterest surprise) (due out February 23)

1/0/0


Hi, my name is Anne. I live in Bremen (in Germany!) with my husband Uwe and two little ones: Lea (5) and Hanna (3). I don't like cigarette/cigar smoke, but have no allergies to speak of (some artificial scents mostly, cats and dogs, but that doesn't matter for anything but wearables, and those are washable!). Our house is smoke- and pet-free (except for a few dust bunnies and maybe the odd spider).

My favourite colours are black (esp. for wearables), then dark teal, deep purple and dark brown (love the cool and soft shades), cream & taupe (sand, milk, stone, wool... think nature), and pink. Always, always, always black will be a perfect choice! So: darker intensive or lighter "bland" colours. I use those colours for the kids as well (but they also get bright ones, like pink, aqua, turquoise, light green). I like plain fabrics, or (stylized) patterns like leaves and blossoms; polka dot... We have decorated our apartment mostly in light colours (white, cream, wood) so colourful stuff is always welcome. Repurposed and/or used is always fine. I usually prefer cotton or other natural fibers over acrylics. Also I'm happy to receive mixed or supply only-claims!

I've set up a board on Pinterest for this swap, links to (almost) all handmade items (or at least pictures) from my list should be here: my Craftster Pinterest wishlist. Big wishes right now are there, but I have lots of things I want on other Pinterest boards, so if you find something there... Especially here Jewelry or here T-shirts I love the shirts I've received so far and am wearing them constantly. But I still want more!

Please keep in mind that I love miniatures! So if there is something you want to make, but shipping costs are too high, maybe it would also work out on a small to tiny scale? Especially if it's supposed to go on the wall.

Embellished / Decorated Shirts
I love the ones I've received so far and am wearing them constantly!
I prefer a round, wide neckline, so a scoop neck or boatneck would be best (don't like anything too close to the throat). So a deep and wide V-neck would be okay, too. And I love 3/4 sleeves (or long), but tees or tanks are always fine, too. Love both cotton with a bit of stretch as well as cotton only; also thinner fabrics. Women's plus size 26-30 or 3x-5x. As for colour, black, white or grey is perfect, as are any of my favourite colours.
If possible, I prefer stencilled/drawn/painted/appliqued/embroidered etc. over the printable iron-ons, because those tend to get destroyed in our washing machine, even in the wool cycle. I've also received some awesome vinyl iron-ons, they work great!
Themes: Anything you think might work for me, or see here for ideas: T-Shirts
Some ideas:
O XKCD t-shirts (baby, natural parenting, grownups, counter-clockwise)
O Rickroll shirt... Or can just be Rick Astley, without the rolling... Wink
O Again anything Labyrinth for me... Jareth, or a quotation, or... preferably in black and white (or a teeny bit glittery?)
O Calvin & Hobbes
O Disc World! Can be just a quotation, or especially Vimes & Sybil, Vetinari, UU, Granny Weatherwax...

Sewn
O Ironing Cover for small folding table (I have a table exactly like that) or:
O Ironing Tote (folds out into an ironing mat
O Medium sized Pleated Tote, a very dark deep teal or brown would be a favourite, or black is always good, but with a zipper closure please!
O Or a tote/purse (with a zipper closure if possible) like one of these: Buttercup Bag; One Hour Bag; Carolina Breeze Bag
O If anyone has a nice dark black/teal/brown/purple jersey (solid or patterned) and maybe a serger, I'd love a very simple, plain tunic. It would have to be pretty large, though, XXL or XXXL.
O Too much lightweight cotton or rayon fabric? Then I'd love something like the Tina Givens Bloom dress! (Maybe without the slit, because I'm not wearing that many layers!) Bloom Dress pattern (free pattern from sewtinagivens.com)
O Things-to-Take-Thingy. Three pockets or even just one wider pocket with a hook would be ideal for wallet, phone & keys. Can have just small grommets or loops, as they will go onto a wall instead of a doorknob. (Not in red, please!)
O Fabric Wall Organizer (I have a cream/grey one already which was taken over by my husband.), I'd love my own! Maybe a bit more colourful than grey so we always grab the correct things.
O Binding or bias tape: patterned or solid, scrappy or single colour, from a fat quarter or a long strip from a sheet...

Knit or crochet
O Yoga socks / boot cuffs / leg warmers to warm my ankles (I want to keep on wearing dresses and skirts this fall and winter) (I received a very pretty pair in purple; maybe some cream coloured ones?)
O An otherwise fast and easy hat with a leaves overlay like this? knit leaves
O Knit Berry Baby hat for heads 50cm/20" in a similar soft purple or strawberry red (if you add pips in the strawberry so it won't look like a tomato: yellow please!) or raspberry pink or blueberry indigo... I'd love two because the girls keep fighting for the (by now too small) one we received two years ago...
O Spiral heel socks
O Any socks really, cable, plain, self-striping, knit or or crochet...
O Big wish: A big, beautiful purple beanie (dark cool soft shade; I have a warmer/burgundy one already) maybe like this one made by lydiaharper for mermaidcafe but I need it for myself, so for a 60cm head! mermaidcafe's hat It doesn't have to be that pattern, or really any pattern at all, it just has to be long and wide enough so it doesn't keep slipping upwards on my hair. A deep teal or black would be lovely, too. My Ravelry Favourites are here.

Jewelry
O Anything Labyrinth (esp. Jareth!) or Calvin & Hobbes for me... painted, sketched, etched, crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, beaded, woven, whittled, embroidered, whatever!
O Flat dark stone pendant with 4 crystals (or glittery glass) like this (two smaller, two larger) Flat dark stone pendant with crystals 4 glittery things (2 larger, 2 smaller) to represent my family
O Glow-in-the-Dark Tree of Life Pendant pretty much like this. or different!
O Han and Leia rings - one saying "i love you" and the other "i know"
O Mini hooplas or tiny art inchies, rinchies, twinchies in your favourite medium. Maybe somthing from here as inspiration, I bet those would make great pendants! I don't wear brooches, but I have lots of supplies to make a necklace for your piece of art! All t-shirt ideas would work very well for this, too!
O Discworld related jewelry would be very much appreciated!

Other
O Something small printed/stamped/embroidered with dandelions on it: A tea wallet, a notebook, a little zippered coin purse or tampon wallet, a earbud case, pendant, anything! Dandelions!
O Covered tape measure: sheep, zebra, penguin, kitten, or something completely different! Even a plain one in a cute/ptretty/cool fabric without any critters. Baaaa!
O Lanterns for tea lights made from cans with holes hammered into them, example: Tin can lanterns - pretty or funny.
O Han and Leia Mugs - please include "i love you" and "i know" (on the inside bottom would be my favourite!) Han & Leia silhouette mugs
O mini stamps for "filofaxing" - appointments, birthdays, dates, movies, etc. - also work well for greeting cards (a candle, a cake or cupcake...)!  (various on my OWS board)
O larger stamps - a simple leaf design, or swirls, also maybe flowers in parts, or something like one of those castle stamp sets. Meant for printing on fabric, to go on t-shirts. Maybe some type of roll for a continuing pattern? I know I had a pin for this somewhere...
O Leather Planner cover in A6, big enough so I can put a regular notebook and a calendar in it (or like the smaller Moleskine flex) (2cm/less than 1"). I love plain oiled leather in (dark) brown.
O Screen printing kit (I would so love to try this!)
O Pillowcases: 40cm/16 inch square, some examples here: Pillow, Pillow, Pillow or here Inspiration Board
O Mini hooplas/wall art for my room in the doll house (because there is no space for a real hoopla wall and I love tiny things!). So inchies or rinchies in your favourite medium. Maybe somthing from here as an inspiration? Inspiration Board
O Tablet stand
O This Pottery Yarn Bowl is my absolute favourite (the colour, the little stars!), but I'd love one made from a wooden bowl too. Or even from a large plastic cup, as long as it's fun to look at and doesn't topple over or hop around the room while I'm working. (If it's tall enough, I can always put a stone in as a weight! Right now I'm using a smallish sugar pot.)
O Anything Labyrinth for me... crochet, knit, Fimo, sewn, embroidered, whatever, useful or just pretty...
O Calvin & Hobbes - again anything "pretty" and/or useful
O Something "Where the Wild Things Are" loved by me and my daughters!


Supplies (scraps or used is fine, as are supply only claims!)
Amazon Wishlist
O Metal stamping blanks & stamps (stamps: especially tiny plain hearts (filled or outline), small/tiny stars, a dandelion set (flower & fluff))
O Frixion pens: highlighters and especially those tiny stamps!
O Chunky Yarn in my colours, or kiddie colours, natural fibers preferred ("we" are starting loom knitting)
O Always: fabric! (esp. solid black!, teals; purples, or smaller patterns, esp. polka dots)
O Always: Sewing thread! All the colours.
O Embroidery hoops! All sizes, especially 4-8" - but if you have a smaller or larger one, those are very welcome, too!
O Fabric paint (plain, or can also be glittery, metallic or pearlescent) - I love the kind that doesn't have to be ironed to fix the paint. Some just have to dry for a few days, other go into the oven.
O Fimo soft (all the colours!) and Fimo Effect and Fimo Kids
O Plain white silk scarves, shawls, foulards, handkerchieves etc. for me to paint
O Binding or bias tape (bought or handmade, plain or patterned)
O Fabric or anything really from these:  (used is great: bedsheet, pillowcase, totebag, scraps, yardage...)
O gift card/voucher/coupon for Sayila, Beadworks (UK), Beadaholique (UK), or Etsy (for patterns, usually)
O To make things with for myself mostly: original care bears, forever friends (the teddy bears!), classic pooh (the e.h. shepard drawings), very hungry caterpillar, barbapapa, moomins
O For the 3yo: Very Hungry Caterpillar, Peppa Pig, Anna & Olaf from Frozen, Minions w/ that fluffy unicorn
O For the 5yo: Mia&Me (Mia and Onchao, Lyria) and Elsa from Frozen
O Anything Lazy Town! Both are huge fans of Stephanie and Sportacus!

If you want to claim me for something that is not on my lists, don't worry and just go ahead (or pop me a message if you are really unsure)! I just know I'll realize how desperately I want & need it anyway as soon as you claim me for it. So: Thank you for claiming me!

I claim anna.wahnsinn for a t shirt, that I will mail out by the 24th of February.
1,0,0.

Hi, my name is Meg, I live in the state of Vermont, usa.
I live with two and a half kitties and two mice.

I am mostly wishing for items of use due to the tiny cottage in which I reside.
I adore gardening, cat rescue, laughter, reading, classical music, nature, and the color turquoise.

If you are making something with zippers or buttons, ya need to make it for like, toddlers. Meaning, I do not have two working thumbs and have real trouble doing up things. I can often manage with huge buttons or large zippers or a huge zipper tab on a smaller zipper that I can grip with the base of my thumb since the rest of my thumb is mere eye candy these days.
Pinterest has been driving me nuts lately and I was gonna opt right the heck out of it (they keep sending me stuff I have not asked for) but I think I need to keep it running for this swap.
There is a particular board there labeled So Which One of You....
But if ya wanna make anything else you see on other boards, that is great, too.

specific stuffs....
My color, turquoise is quirky. There are a lot of variations and possibilities. Here is a link to what my true love is...
https://images.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt=A0LEV7y9.ZxYonQABNonnIlQ?p=color+swatches&fr=yhs-mozilla-001&fr2=piv-web&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-001#id=14&iurl=http%3A%2F%2Fweb3canvas.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2014%2F03%2FFlat-UI-Colors-swatches.png&action=click

I adore ridiculously kitschy stuff. Fabrics, images from the fifties, tender or innocent looking kids stuff.

The board labeled Mama Needs a New Curtain shows the type of fabric I would loooove to have. I still have just a piece of fabric vaguely draped over my door window and it keeps falling off. It has been six months since I moved to this place. I am thinking someone else needs to create a curtain to go there, lol!
Size is 26 inches wide, 24 inches long. On top of that measurement, I need wide fabric tabs at the top for hanging, I think five would be fine . Rod is one of those typical metal ones in a rectangular form, not a round smooth rod. I hope that is what I am trying to say.....

the Yarn me likie board shows novelty yarns I want. I have not been able to find them in craft stores lately. I am gonna be making earrings with these. My fave earrings of them have disappeared during my last three moves....

I am thinking the items I have in my So, Which one of You board are showing specific fabrics, etc. No need to copy these, just go with what you see is my general style.

I think that's about it!

I am not interested in receiving supplies, except as listed above, as I would rather have something ya'll make when I myself have the power to just order supplies...

Hello everyone!  I'm Jeanne from midwest USA.  I'm married 32 years to a wonderful man and we have 2 teenaged sons at home (older kids escaped the nest).  Our home is smoke free (allergies plus son has asthma) but we do have a short haired dog that we rescued from the pound.  I enjoy reading, refinishing or  repurposing furniture, and machine sewing at a basic level.  Thanks to arthritis, my hands don't cooperate when it comes to hand sewing or precise skills.  Quilters, knitters/crocheters, embroiderers, and jewelry makers are my heroes- anyone who does intricate detailing.  I like Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, Game of Thrones, AHS, old movies, art history, and retro themes up through 1950s.  Vintage sewing machines and teacups make me smile.
Many thanks to everyone who has previously claimed me!  I adore and appreciate every item, and the thoughtfulness behind each one Smiley

Minions!!  They are the cutest bad guys on the planet lol
HURRAW lip balms!!


Dislikes --
Chevron, things that are strong contrast (black/white checkerboard makes my eyes go wonky, but b/w toile is no problem for me);  Domo, Mickey Mouse; themes focused on gloom, blatant horror (except AHS), vulgar/adult, or juvenile;  I'm allergic to peppermint, almonds, tobacco smoke.  Scents labeled "cotton" or "linen."  The psychedelic 1960s.

Some ideas:  https://www.pinterest.com/jsol161/%2B%2B-craftster-wish-list-%2B%2B/


-- SUPPLIES --

D rings -- various sizes -- I've used up the ones RaraAvis sent and can always use more
Overalls buckles - the metal clasp set that hooks the overall bib strap to the chest piece  (like these  http://www.joann.com/search?q=overall%20buckle)
Side release/Parachute buckles 1" wide or smaller - these are the buckles on shopping cart seat belts that squeeze from the sides
1" or 3/4" wide webbing - black, navy, dark purple, or cream are used the most but any color is useful --  I've used up the ones RaraAvis graciously sent already but can always use more for handles and straps.
Threads - all colors are useful; cotton preferred please   **Speaking of threads, I have some spools of embroidery thread that need a good home.  There are variegated, solids, various contents - nylon, rayon, polyester, some unknown content.  Also a few spools that might be for a serger ***
Non-roll elastic - any width
Insul-Brite for inside of hot pads, trivets, etc.
Fabric -- fat quarters or half yards are always useful (or men's dress shirts with buttons all the way down the front- great material source plus the button holes are already there and I don't have to sew on the buttons).  I make tote bags for walkers and wheelchairs, to donate to nursing home residents.  Colorful prints are stimulating.  Michael Miller, Kaufman, RJR, Alexander Henry, and Timeless Treasures are particular favorites but any fabric would be appreciated.
Embroidery scissors - to take with me wherever I haul my project tote, so my larger scissors can stay at home.  Kidlets' school thinks that large scissors are weapons.
Shoelaces -- any colors; longer is better but all are useful
Cellophane bags for wrapping baskets (30x40 inches or larger please, can't find big ones around here)
*Big Wish* Self healing cutting mat, 24 x 36
Templates, stencils, card stock, brayer - for card making


MEDIA

-- Previously read mystery magazines such as Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, The Strand, Alfred Hitchcock Magazine; anything with a collection of short stories that you might have laying around.  I share with nursing home residents.
-- A PICKLE FOR A NICKEL, by Lilian Moore (one of my all time fav books from childhood; used is fine for this or any book)
-- LIBRARY OF SOULS (The Third Novel of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series; I have parts 1 and 2)
-- SPENCER'S MOUNTAIN DVD or book by Earl Hamner Jr.  (This is the story on which the tv show, "The Waltons," was based.  Used is fine.)
-- Anything by Edward Gorey.  I'm intrigued by the glimpses that I've seen/heard about his work.

Anything from My Amazon Wish List:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/W1PI4SJEV4EA/ref=cm_wl_list_o_1?

-- Your experiences and skills might think of something else that isn't listed, but no doubt would be incredibly useful and deeply appreciated Smiley

Thank you for considering me!
