Thursday and Friday were lovely sunny spring days, today it snowed, hailed and was very very windy :/ Crazy weather! Anyway as it wasn't a day for wandering around outside I spent the day trying to clear out some of the crap in our bedroom. With all the work that's been going on things have been constantly thrown into bags and into the back of cupboards so I spent the whole of this afternoon sorting through them and running my shredder hot and filling the recycling bag to the brim :) No craft but least I got something done today.
My gnome partner received her parcel today and seems very excited with it all, she's not posted pics on Craftster yet but here are my pics.
I stencilled 2 shirts, drew some gnome cards, knitted a gnomie stuffie, knitted the biggest gnome hat ever, seriously you'd have to have some big hair to fill it. I knit it without a pattern and I overestimated I guess still it looks cool on as it goes extra floppy being so big. I also made a big bead magnet, two pouches that I filled with some traditional scottish candy, a pair of earrings and a thimble. Oh and there was a bookmark and a garden ornament of 3 gnomes in some sort of crazy balancing act, unfortunately I forgot to get a good picture.
Shirt 1 with a wee gnome in gold
Shirt two that I stencilled mushrooms all around the bottom on both the front and the back
I seem to be getting braver with my knitting as I didn't use a pattern to create this guy either.
So that's me swapless. I only have to receive my UK Instant swap stuff and my partner in the Tim Burton swap is still to receive but I've no one to craft for. Well that's not true him indoors would really like a shirt stencilled as I've yet to make him one and of course I still have my hats to knit for the Save The Children Appeal. Oh and I still have the PIF to do, I really need to find the link I had for that. Ok it's a pay if forward thing which is where I will craft something for 'you' and include this great wee bag that gets passed along with each PIF and then who ever I craft for then has to find someone to send the PIF to. Man I really need that link. Right here's the deal, the first person to comment on this post will receive a wee something from me and so the game goes on. :D
Ok found the link but have forgotten how to post a link so here it is in full because I am useless :) http://contrarygarden.typepad.com/how_does_your_garden_grow/2006/11/for_good_people.html
