I have received a hugely strokeable red dragon today. I think he will be coming to work with me to be guardian of my filing tray  Grin



There was also some candy but I ate it already - yum yum - and of course the pattern so I can make a friend.

It's 8pm over here and my neighbour just knocked on the door with a package with my name on it  Grin

Will update with pictures shortly

Anticipation!!



My haul!!



So much peanut buttery goodness I don't know where to start. Ritz bits which I haven't had since my last trip to the states in 2007 (and the boyfriend has just spied) some lovely oven gloves, powdered drinks sachets, mango with chilli which I'm really intrigued about and still more candy and chips

I received from lukenlarry today. All nicely packaged up and small enough to fit through my mailbox which meant I wasn't subjected to the postal delivery office's weird opening times.

Inside there was a bundle of stuff all wrapped in fabric and tied up with a ribbon

First of all this cute monster.

 He is made from fabrics with lots of interesting textures. His back is spotty but textured spotty rather than coloured if that makes sense but I wasn't able to capture it in a photo .

Inside his mouth he was hiding more cool stuff

Candy, some of which may not be pictured because I may have eaten it already :-) and including peanut buttery goodness. A cute little owl and a lovely turtle again made with lovely textured fabrics.

All in all a great package

And now I'm off for a coffee and to eat some of that candy, been waiting all day as I wasn't able to take photos before now!

14  This is a unicorn in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ebygomm on: March 14, 2012 01:40:28 PM
Skyping with my niece (age 2.5) at the weekend and she was insistent that the sock cow I'd made was a unicorn. In the interests of her further education I have had to make a sock unicorn to demonstrate the difference :-)

15  Opposites, Antonyms, Fast, Slow, Hare, Tortoise in CHALLENGE 72 ENTRIES by ebygomm on: March 02, 2012 02:58:08 PM
I've been enjoying making lots of sock animals lately and when I saw this craft challenge I thought it would be a great opportunity to make a 'two for the price of one' sock critter.

Two animals, at opposite ends of the speedometer, combined as one

First a hare





Then a tortoise





The transition stage



A two headed beast!

Upcycling old socks into sock animals can definitely be done, sometimes requires a bit more creativity though.

17  Upcycled sock frog in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ebygomm on: February 23, 2012 12:03:46 PM


I had some socks that I loved but were really at the end of their functioning life as socks so I decided to let them live on as a sock critter. I've been wanting to try a frog for a while but haven't found suitable socks and I realised these would make a wonderful little frog.

As you can see, the socks were fairly worn around the heel



One of the socks formed the legs and the body,the worn area was around the crotch and I simply reinforced this with some fleece before sewing.



The other worn area was simply cutout and discarded with the remainder of the sock used to make the arms and the head. Some left over bits of sock were used along with fleece for the feet and a bit more fleece for the eyes and ta da one sock frog!

I've not yet found any orange socks but I thought these socks can just about work for a cow

Hope everyone's crafting is going well. I had to be super organised and get mine done early before enjoying a holiday.

Hope you feel better soon Lany

20  Sock Elephant Mark 2 (and another giraffe), and a cow - Just added in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ebygomm on: January 20, 2012 12:44:03 PM
Completed my second sock elephant this week along with my third giraffe. Elephant still requires a little work I feel, I'm not quite happy with the neck area. The giraffe I still love, although I've used the last pair of giraffe socks so he my be the last  Sad







They're gifts for two little girls from the same family so get to stay together.
