Super Swaps

Hey everybody! I've been doing a lot of stitching lately thanks to some swaps I've been involved in. Here's a quick update about all the swappy goodness.

Penny Nickels and I did a personal swap. I know, right? I can't believe how lucky I am! ^_^ It was pretty intimidating, to be honest, since I've been a fan of hers for awhile.

This is what I ended up making and sending to Penny:

I was inspired by Trixiedelicious and her pretty and subversive china plates.

And this is the amazing dirty pillow I got from her:

I absolutely love this. Sure, it made me turn a few shades of red, but that just means it's working! :)

I'm also involved in a swap at the Phat Quarter, the flickr group Mr X Stitch and I started. The theme of the swap was anatomy, and I was totally stumped when trying to think of a topic. Internet saved me. I was inspired by Pietro Aretino and his Sixteen Postures as provided by the pornokrates website, where a gentleman referred to his member as a "ruthless organ."

The stitch practically designed itself after that. :) The... um... well, let's just call them what they are... the penis flowers are an original design. I sent to Meagan Ileana, who is an amazing artist. It isn't nerve-racking at ALL to send to someone like her. Nope. :)

I'm going to be getting my swap piece from Julie Jackson of subversive cross stitch fame - how exciting is that? ^_^

Now I've got to work on my entry for the AntiCraft, and of course keep posting over at Mr X Stitch. You really need to check things out over there if you haven't already. It's pretty damn awesome.

Thanks for looking! See you next time!

I've never heard of a stitching swap but what an interesting idea! It looks like a very creative way to create and share work.
