My partner has recieved her swap package from me.....it went all the way to the UK!!!! This was a verb swap, and we had to craft items based upon our partners chosen verb. My partner chose "To Capture". Here is a close up of the 'spiderweb' capelet from the "Stitch and Bitch" book. I made one of those beaded spiders to put in the corner. The spider is probably one of the best 'capturers' in nature.
I also captured something for her...well, not really, but I did make this little guy out of paper mache. I told my partner that he is a Canadian garden gremlin. I hope he likes his new home.
Finally, I sent her a recovered journal for her to 'capture' her thoughts. I was really pleased with everything I made for this swap.
Yet another project from 'Stitch and Bitch'. Its my first forray into illustion knitting. I'm really taking my time on this, since you really have to concentrate hard to get the lumpy rows right so that they pop out when viewed from the side. Not bad so far. I really should aim to have this done by Halloween.
