Beautiful Anniversary Gift!  I can understand why she cried so much.  Those verses are very special to me and mine, they are engraved in our wedding bands.  I would have cried too!

She's beautiful!  The white stripe is a wonderful way to accentuate the tone-on-tone effect!  Cheesy But I REALLY love her dress, beautiful material.  I wish I had a dress out of that material for myself! Grin

Y'all are right about handmade gifts being on the  Sad endangered list, but in a way, Craftster is reviving that by letting us all share our knowledge & support. Cheesy  Last year, I decided that birthday gifts can be bought, but most of the Christmas gifts need to be made.  My nieces couldn't believe that I sewed the little purses, since no one else they know makes things. Huh Well except my dad but he makes knives, not anything a little girl would get.

Needless to say, Poppets and quilts are going to surround the Christmas Tree this year Grin along with whatever other crafts I learn from y'all!

I guess we are artists, although I'm no Rembrandt. 

I love seeing my kids play with them though. My eldest son (8yrs) who is an incredible artist, a progeny really, at drawing, has asked if he can create a creature and I bring it to life by making a doll out of it. I told him that if I am clever enough to figure it out, I will make one for his birthday. I have until November...

Good Luck on that one!  I hope you don't have to learn TOO many new techniques to accomplish it.  After all, November doesn't give too much practice time.  Grin  No really good luck and I'd love to see it!

Many people that I've talked fall into three catergories.  One Group has/are around children and think poppets would be fun as a toy to bridge the child-adult playtime gap.  The second group have never had/been around children they think I've done a nice craft for kids and dismiss the poppets.  The last group have had or been around children that have now grown.  This group tends to want a poppet to play with on occasion and to keep them company the rest of the time.  Poppets remind them of the playtimes past.

Okay, sorry for that.  Sometimes I overanalyze Undecided  But it seems kinda accurate on my side.
