3 weeks is AWESOME!  I think it would take me a few months (and I would accidentally cut off their heads or something horrible Cheesy).

So right!  Except with my accident-prone nature I would have cut off a vital part of me  Cheesy  Thus, Mr Goldfish gets to keep the things that might cause large hospital bills.

Way to try something new!

simon and garfunkel... NICE! Cheesy

however... is this necessary? http://www.artgarfunkel.com/library.html

Strange... will share w/Mr Goldfish when he is up.  Songbook was gift that he keeps using.

And meanwhile, back at the swap....(sorry couldn't resist)  Do y'all build your jars from the middle or the outside?  I've never done this and am just curious as to others methodology.

Amazing! Shocked  Great job using your childhood rescues!  I am sure that it will become a favored place & memory for your own kids.  I am in the whimsy swap and that is what it reminds me of.  A treasure trove of the unexpected that allows you to share favorite memories with loved ones! Smiley

anitacj - No matter how it turns out to you, it will be great.  We all have our "survivor" poppets, those that aren't quite right.  And in some ways, they are my favorites.  Often we only learn from our mistakes.  Just go out and make it!  Giving up is the only failure.

Ooops sorry for the mini-rant.

I think there was some problems that some people were having when turning and stuffing the the fingers on the Elenore doll. One of the problems was the seams popping. I have the same problem occasionally. If you stuff them with the pipe cleaners, and then either do a ladder stitch to close it up, or an overcast or whip stitch, it doesn't really show all that badly as long as you're using the same color of thread as your fabric. None of us is perfect.

Do you use the pipe cleaner as is or folded in half with the not sharp end out?   Huh  I went through 3 right arms on Spock before getting it to look right and just want to know how y'all do it.

Can't wait for this weekend, we are hitting the sales hard.

Yard sales?  Thats what Im going to be doing saterday!  'Course I have to make a quick stop to the post office to mail my whimsie box.   Grin  yeah, im sending a whimsie box that includes a whimsi jar.  ha ha!  Oh, i cant what for my partner to get her package!  How exciting.   Grin


Well, not a yard sale....much better.  First Monday Trade Days, like a community yard sale on steroids!   Acres of sellers with premade crafts, antiques, doodads and junk.  Home of some $3 used quilts, quarter vintage patterns, and half of my crafting books.  I try to go every month just to look, but this time, I get to BUY! Grin

Wow!!  Can I come too?

Don't leave me behind! My fingers are already itching to get involved in that! Smiley


Wellll..... If any of y'all live near Canton TX, that is where it is every month.  I would be estatic to have another shopping buddy.  Here are some of the links.  The second has a list of vendors, but there are also the "yard sale" vendors that aren't listed and the most fun. Wink
