OMG that is so gorgeous! The green background pushes it right over the top. I love it!

Glad you like yours TAOJ. It turned out better than that ugly cross-stitch I started out with anyhow. I posted it in it's own topic here. I hope everybody will do that, I wanna see progress shots & close ups of all these gorgeous hoops!

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Wow, these are so fantastic! I can't pick a favourite, but I had to, it would be... the one I just received from faemystique!



Look how dense the stitching is, and with that wool and heavy floss, it looks like some kind of traditional ethnic technique:



But as if that weren't enough (and it certainly is!), our talented organizer packed the bright purple package (why can I only ever find bubble-pack envelopes in white and tan?) with a huge pile of extras:



Stickers, die-cuts (I love the dog bowl of biscuits!), printed paper and vellum ephemera, playing cards, buttons, glass and stone beads, keys, leather thong...



... a huge variety of teas, a silly fashion postcard, scraps of lace, a glittery rainbow unicorn kitten card (of course) and even the fabric in the background.

Thank you for all this wonderfulness. I can hardly wait to sew this mandala onto something - I had thought a bag, but now I'm leaning toward a cushion.

I hid an umbrella in it because I happened to binge The Umbrella Academy while stitching it and it was filmed literally right where Wulf lives and works... its on the bottom of the circle on left haha...

These are all so amazing, I can't believe the fabric cut outs, the classy colors and vibrant presentations... this is a tremendous GALLERY...

I love it all!!  Thanks Guys for a great swap!  I will update the feedbacks tonight

Oh wow, these last 3 are just stunners! Love the fabric bits Abbee added in, that looks so cool! Fae, your rainbow layered profusion with hidden imagery is just awesome. And Wulf, well I expected nothing less than the most gorgeous thing ever and I certainly am not disappointed.

What a fabulous swap this has been! Such marvelous creations and all so unique.

I have to say this is one of the best galleries ever! There is not one that I would not hang in my own home, so just send them all to me  Wink
