Adorable!  The hair especially looks fantastic; great job with the curls!
102  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: One Tiny Pushing Daisies Item Swap? on: July 11, 2010 07:20:54 PM
I've never participated in a swap so I might not qualify for this one, but I still think it's a great idea.  I love Pushing Daisies so much!

Unfortunately I don't think I would; pulling out the poo bits seems to be pulling out most of the stuff.  It must have come from the rear end.  Wink
104  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Poop! on: June 22, 2010 08:39:00 AM
I picked up two bags of fleece at my thrift store - they're labeled and weighed and everything, and a brief glance (and some feeling) told me that they were decent enough for a first go at processing raw wool.

The Corriedale is great, but the Leicester I got may be a wash.  I'm not sure whether to just throw it out or what.  I've soaked it four times, twice with soap and twice without.  My problem isn't VM so much as the tips being coated in poop.  It's really ground in there, and I was hoping the hot water would dissolve it but no luck.  I tried to pick it out but it's removing whole hanks of fleece, not just tips or small strands.

Should I go ahead and toss out this poopy fleece, or is there another way to remove the poo without trashing it?

This is Alcyone's Pillow, so named because it is pillowy soft in both texture and color.

And this is my first attempt at Navajo plying.  It was...not entirely successful.  Wink  I need practice!  But that's all part of the learning process.  I really overplied this yarn so I am setting it, rewetting it, and then attempting a fix.  I've had success with that before on two-ply yarn.  Not sure how it'll go with this plying method.  The first pic is a bit washed out; the second one is closer to the actual color.  I call it Screaming Mimi (after the comic character) because of the magenta stripes:

I'm really glad you're getting so much positive feedback here.  Let me add my voice to that!  These images are fantastic and, like others here, I had a hard time choosing a favorite!  Not only are your images amazing, but I checked out your etsy and couldn't resist those mum bobby pins.  Smiley

Keep creating!

These are so exquisite I can't stand it.  Fantastic work.  They're just perfect!

I was super quickly reading through the comments, so I apologize if anyone has already suggested a dremel or other rotary tool for cutting plastic, but a relatively cheap one (15-20 bucks) will do the job quickly and easily with the right attachment.  Those suckers even cut through metal.

I think the hula hoops are a grand idea.

This is so awesome!  You did a fantastic job, and I envy your tulle-liciousness!
