crystal’s swap parcel arrived and she was so excited she tore open the parcel and dove in head first while i was setting up the camera! (this is her first swap after all)
diving in

she was wide eyed at all the goodies
this is all for me?

a pretty felt jumper for those cooler summer evenings, we get a lot of those up here.

a cute capri jupsuit in her favorite color

and a shorty set she couldn’t decide if she was supposed to wear to the beach or to bed , so decided she was just wear it for both! 😆 she also got the stuffie, pillow and cute wig in her favorite of course!

braving the cellar

crystalorn and amberglas are taking part in a swap on doa, with a couple of other tinies. crystal has already made a new bff, since her partner loves pink, flowers and lace as much as crystal! she is taking amber in hand since amber’s partner is also rather girly and she says amber is a great sister, but she just doesn’t understand pink! 😆

here the two of them are ready to go down into the basement to look for swap fabric. they put on their hiking boots, and crystal insisted on taking her flashlight, even though we have lots of light in the basement. they are ready for serious work!

smilga swap quilt

  • Posted on July 20, 2011 at 9:44 pm

i did a swap with smilga (check out the link on the side to see her wonderful crocheted outfits). she couldn’t decide between pink to match her girls room

smilgas quilt pink

or turquise for her favorite color, so we did both!  the quilt is pink butterflies on one side,

smilgas quilt blue

and turquoise bears on the other.  the large pillows both reverse to turquoise and pink butterflies on the back, on the front one has a  pink butterfly, the other a blue bear.  the little ones are solid blue or pink, because the backing showed too much on the wrong side.  i tried a trick i learned elsewhere and put tiny glass beads in the quilt for stuffing.  this makes it drape realistically over the edge of the bed rather than sticking straight out.  it worked really well but was a lot harder to get the beads in past all the pieced seams, so i’m not sure i would try it again.

the pillows are stuffed with a mixture of stuffing and lavender.  the lavender makes for pleasant dreams and also allows for a bit of shaping under sleepy heads.

noni and beezie did a  quality control test and filled the quilt and pillows with best wishes before we sent them on their way.
