CRAZY-good embroidery

If you're looking for the Story of Naughty Pippi, you can find it here.  :)

As I mentioned yesterday, I recently participated in one, final monochromatic embroidery Hoopla Swap.  And I am completely. blown. away.

Craft swaps: Good-bye for now

If you're looking for the Story of Naughty Pippi, you can find it here.  :)

I'm taking a break from craft swaps.  Maybe a permanent one.  I'm not sure yet.  But definitely a long one.  I have so many projects for my family that I'd love to complete, ooohhh, sometime this decade, so I feel that I need to focus more on them now.  Plus, that little Baby Boy Monkey of ours is coming in just a few short months, so I'd better get crackin' on his layette! 

My last Craftster swaps were the Baby Onesie Swap, the Pregnant Mama and Newborn Swap, and another fun embroidery Hoopla Swap.  (You can see my posts on the Baby Onesie Swaps here, here and here.)

As for the Pregnant Mama and Newborn Swap. . . .

I received these cute items from my sweet partner, knittychick:


Clockwise, starting top left:  a nomad swaddler -- genius!; a reversible nursing cover, complete with pockets; hand-painted burp cloths; a nursing station caddy.  All of these items are crafted in colors I LOVE, and are so cute and practical.  They'll be getting a lot of use when Baby Monkey arrives!  (You can see a picture of the nomad swaddler in use here, if you'd like.)

And I sent my partner these. . . .

The Story of Naughty Pippi


Pippi Cat: a very naughty cat, and much beloved by her large family anyway.

Pippi longed for adventure, action, romance. Someone left the back door ajar, and she saw her chance to escape the confines of quiet domestic living. So escape she did.
