Yea!!! I got my dotee, and I am thrilled! I got the whole solar system.
Alwaysinmyroom even made the galaxy fabric with bleach. What did you use for Saturn's 'rings?' The best part, to me, is Pluto hanging on down below. On my questionnaire I put "Pluto is still a planet to me." And she named the dotee 'Poor Pluto!' I've been smiling all day!
Yea! I received my dotee from Wile E Songdog, and I'm so impressed with all the work that went into it. I realized recently that I didn't really give her any easy options on my list (sorry). Here's my lupine lady.
There are lots of tiny stitches holding on the florets, and little seed beads.
I have loved lupines ever since reading 'Miss Rumphius' by Barbara Cooney when I was younger. But I've never been able to grow any, so this is a treat. Thanks Wile E Songdog!
Here's another hat and blanket set for a different niece expected next month. The blanket is flannel on the front with flocked satin folded over from the back for the edging. No batting because they live where the snow never flies.
I saw something like this somewhere on the internet. Just a mass of paper hearts on strings. Cheap, easy, fast, and effective. I wish I had some red spray paint around that I could have lightly hit a few with to add some dimension. I wanted to use the whole book I had saved for crafting reuse, but made myself stop so I can get on with other things. More would definitely be better.

Made a replacement for that hot pink hat that came out too big. Didn't take much yarn, but I was able to work on it while I sat next to the child that needed to be pinned down to finish missing homework.
