So, there have been a few swaps that I've completed that I haven't had a chance to share with you. Want to see? By the way, I freaking love Swap-bot!
I made this for the "Embroidery Me a Fairy Tale" Swap. This was a freebie pattern from doe-c-doe.
I branched out a bit with this gem. I was happy to find out that it survived the journey to South Africa. Thank you, E6000, I love you!
On to the "Embroidery in Red" Swap. Using a pattern available in the Space Case set from Sew Lovely Embroidery. My partner hated pink, so it was a nice challenge to use only dark reds to pull this one off. Love the way it turned out though.
Then there is this lovely lady, for the "Non-Cutesy Mermaid ATC" Swap. Her tail is on a brad, so it swings inward to fit the dimensions of a true ATC. Yeah, her arm hangs off but I didn't have the heart to cut it off a Sailor Jerry girl, so I told the future owner to do it with out telling me...if it bothered her. I found out it doesn't...yay!
Most recently I completed the "Embroider Anything" Swap. I made this patch, again with another Sew Lovely Embroidery pattern. I love those gal's stuff...sew much! The second pic is a truer representation of color, I don't know what happened with the first photo.
Well, that's everything so far, expect a lot more though. I'm currently signed up for 3 embroidery swaps on Swap-bot alone. Then there is the other crafty swaps and another stitchy one on Flickr...I'm going to be a busy girl!
Sorry about the late posts, an unseasonably cool day created a hankering for baked pasta and that stuff takes some time. Oh, and hopefully I'll be done with the remodel soon so you guys don't have to second guess whether or not you're on the right blog.
Thanks for looking, I hope everyone had a craftastic day.
