Hehe, Avsceriline, I will send you roving! Partly out of a sense of responsibility for your new addiction  Cheesy and partly to see what awesome stuff you make!!!

Here's my list, I'm in the Minnesota, where it's FINALLY stopped raining!

Glamour Cuffs: https://sslrelay.com/www.s109799752.oneandoneshop.co.uk/sess/utn1543d7ae628fe80/shopdata/index.shopscript

Or any knit arm warmers with thumb gusset

A kimono fabric hobo bag like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56519.0 (I am in LOVE with the indigo/orange one!)

Or the necktie schoolbag https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45985.0;topicseen

Some kind of jewelry roll/organizer thingie for traveling, that will keep my bling from getting tangled!

This is a long shot...but I love it and I'd have no idea how to begin to make one...pmc crane necklace: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=72997.msg686245;topicseen

A how-to kit for one of the crafts I want to learn: bookbinding, pmc, resin , microscope slide necklaces (I have a soldering iron but nothing else...and I'm not sure how to use it!   )

I've been really into bird stuff lately, especially swallows. AND I've been really into tree/blossoming branch/cherry blossom images So... something with a bird/swallow/tattoo swallow/bird with cherry blossoms/blossoming branch motif? Hmmm....

A wristcuff with a bird and/or blossoming branch that says 9.1 on it

I'm loving all the fancy cabled stuff lately...the owl cables, Bobolink's tree, etc. So, something, anything with "picture" cables!

Day of the Dead shrine or figure of a librarian. It would be extra sweet if she was working with slides or art books! OR a happy looking Day of the Dead dog or cat! OR a hanging DOTD butterfly or bird!

A big modern/funky felted stuffy monster guy like Mr. Pretty https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86035.0;topicseen something a single adult who doesn't collect stuffies but secretly loves them could pass off as "modern decor" and put on the couch like a pillow -LOL. I love Mr. Pretty!

xrays! Several years ago I made a cool lightbox out of an xray of a cat that I found. Later it turned out to be my neighbor's cat, Harold, who died. Of course I gave him the lamp, but I've wanted more xrays ever since! My Drs always refuse to give me mine (not that I get xrayed that much, LOL) Anyone have any unwanted xrays laying around? Human or not, anything interesting will do!

Kanzashi flowers! I received some from Sea of Stars and now I'm HOOKED! I'm Koo-koo for kanzashi!

Fleuri bag https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29772.0;topicseen

Bloomers! Yeah...resistance is futile....

A wrap skirt! In a 50's inspired, Asian or Amy Butler/Alexander Henry-ish fabric. PM me for more info! Or anchors! My inspiration is, well, everything on madewithlovebyhanna h.com! That girl is a genius!

A fun, retro apron (a full one with the top bit, not the half/skirt kind) ruffles & pockets would ROCK!

Knitty's Nautie! http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTnautie.html coiled, in pretty colors. I love nautie!! I've been obssessed with chambered nautilus since I was a kid!

Felted camellia! with or without bag! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=92340.0;topicseen I love this bag, the colors, the flower, everything about this post is pure joy!

An Amy Butler bag:  it's my aspiration to be able to sew them one day

Summery Noni style felted bag and/or flowers! http://www.pureknits.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=66_85 I just love all of this stuff!!

Some kind of crafty surprise! You can get ideas from my posts or my "wists"!

*stops rummaging through x rays to post own wishlist*

Hooray! I'm popping my ongoing wishlist cherry!  Cheesy I live in the UK and I'm a crafty-ninja-pirate-Bettie Page fan.

My wishlist:

Something for the kitchen, like a nice pretty apron that a 50s housewife would wear, or a tea towel or an oven glove (I could really do with an oven glove - I burnt mine! ha ha ha!  )

I'd love a lolita skirt, I think the shape of this one is so beautiful https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77132.0;topicseen but it doesn't have to be just like that one

I'd be blown away by a pair of (possibly pink?!) bloomers!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71820.0

Sock yarn.  I'm hooked on socks Cheesy

A hat. My faves are kitty hats, pointy/pixie hats and ones with sequins on. (Like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73266.0)

A name necklace, maybe like this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51223.0

Fabric - I like red, pink, green and orange, and I like cute and kitschy stuff, like polka dots, cupcakes etc. I can't get any funky fabric where I live Sad

Something to make me more pirate-esque.

Something summery to wear!

i claim kinky for a name necklace!!! kinky, i'll pm you, there's several different ways i could do this.

i'm in los angeles, ca

- The sweet and short shrug from Happy Hooker.  So cute! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=89952.0
- Any crocheted shrug, really.  I like how it has a lacier look that takes so much longer to accomplish when I knit it.
- hemp sandals!!! loving these.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=91782.0
- a package from a foreign country
- an embellished hoodie - i love hoodies, zip up ones
- I like tank tops lots, so embellished ones are always fun.
- stuff for taking baths
- a "funky" quilt square - like this one:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=84450.0
- a little felted creature
- crocheted granny squares for me to make something
- a circle skirt would be fun!  PM for measurements. Smiley
- i know this isn't necessarily crafty, but i like weird nailpolish colors
- cool brown and tan fabrics - i'm having fun making various things for my room
- a swap journal would be neat https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77501.0
- a fabric belt could actually be pretty cool
- handspun yarn (duh, everyone has this one)
- felted soap - pm me for scents] Yay! Thank you Bloo!!
- old knitting patterns
- something with an anatomical heart

A DIY kit for any of the following:
- needle felting
- crocheting
- resin
- making a coin purse (sewn)

About me: My name is Meredith, I'm 24 years old, I'm living in L.A, originally from Buffalo, NY.  I love browns, dark greens, burgundy, colors like that.  But sometimes I like light pink. Smiley  I'm quite into movies and reading as well as crafting, and I heart my computer.  I like quaint little flowers, chocolate, rain, vampires, and cordouroy.  Patchwork especially.  I pretty much wear the same jewelry all the time.  I love  thrift store sweaters and am constantly collecting them.

I claim DithMer for some Canadian goodies and a suprize!

I'm in Winnipeg, Canada


Wrap skirt - PM for measurements.  Maybe black one side and a print on the other. 

An embelished sweatshirt for my Mom.  (no hood).  Something pretty.  On a white sweatshirt preferably.  Maybe flowers, her inital (M), birds etc. 

Wallet  (oohh, this is lovely...just an idea/inspiration)  http://www.etsy.com/view_item_sold_anon.php?listing_id=135183&transaction_id=36296  OR fabric like this (or kind of like this)...then I could make my own....

***Quilt Blocks (10.5" (unhemmed) - of your design and fabric color choice) for my Craftster Quilt***
craftsterquilt.blog spot.com  (Finished (edges unhemmed) to sew into a quilt)

Mr. Pretty Stuffie https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86035.0;topicseen  Can be little...I LOVE felted stuff!  (Idea stolen from Batgirl)  Thanks Avian Flight!!!

Felted Stuffed Animal  OOOHH can anyone do an Elephant??
(idea) http://www.musicology.ucla.edu/grads/sun/knitting/images/sheep.jpg

Felted ANYTHING!  (slippers, bag (I LOVE the one I got from Snacker, can NEVER have too many bags), pouch

Jogging fleece shrug  PM for size.

Stuffed Elephant

White/light creme cabled knit scarf.  Acrylic is fine with me as long as it's 'nice'     acrylic.  The chunkier the 'wool' the better. (A narrow scarf would be cool for spring)

Stencilled or Screened t-shirt, tank top (XL-1X) with:

--  "I've got a fever...and the only prescription is more cowbell!"

--  "This shirt needs more cowbell"

--  "Tub Tub"  my boyfriends 'pet' name for me

--  "I Love my Boyfriend"

--   Birds

--  Tree themed

A long tunic style shirt decorated however you like (PM for ideas if needed) (XL-1X)

Japanese craft book

Shrug (yummy!)  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=89952.0;topicseen

Crochet cactus

Learn to crochet Amigurumi kit, I'm a beginner all I can do is single and double crochet and have no idea how to do anything else.

Home made lip balm (any flavor is fine)

Home made soap (any scent)     Thanks Nevermore!!

Any soap or body product scented with Nag Champa

Anything with Japanese Kokeshi dolls on it

Craft books...any theme...used is fine...   Thank you, Thank you!

Knitting for Dummies (book)  used would be fine (of course)

Weighted desk/table scrap collector  (weighted pouch with bag attached for stray threads clippings etc, weighted portion sits on desk and bag hangs over edge for a recepticle)

Vintage/vintage-look fabric  (can never have enough!)

Neat little holder for my Nintendo DS games...I don't have anything particular in mind, just something with little slots to hold games...and keep them clean.  If it could have a pocket for the instruction books that would be great!  I'm not picky about fabric anything is fine (just not felt...too fuzzy).  I'll leave this up to you as far as design etc, as long as it's secure...

A surprize from my Wist http://www.wists.com/Kristen81

OH!  And if you pick me I'd LOVE a Post card from your locale for my swap collection!
