I need to create a wall space in my craft room for the "found the note after shipping". 
Ugh. But she's winging her way to you and I hope you like her.

I will be honest. I was getting super nervous about this swap. My husband has been booking up all my weekends and not telling me and then next weekend is Father's Day and the weekend after that is his birthday. Eeks! So this weekend I holed myself up in the house and crafted away. I had the medium done and was able to get three smalls done! Whew. Now anything else will just be icing and I don't have to stress.  Wink

I've had that stressed syndrome lately..... Past two weekends ago was moving niece out of her apartment; this weekend was a sick kid; this coming weekend is helping to clean up and repair another house and the list goes on!  One more thing for the poppet swap and it should (it better be) sent today and then all my focus on this swap. It may be my last for the next few months because we are probably moving. I'm not looking forward to it.... The place is a she'll at the moment and doesn't even have a bathroom at the moment Sad

I didn't realize you had no mojo in the dragon swap gotgrey,I would have never guessed!  Hopefully it doesn't happen again and if it does, it doesn't last to long.

And of course, a teaser (i'm so mean!):

Happy birthday! My large is out of my hands at the moment but it should be done on time.  I do have a substitute if time runs out but I hope not to have to do that.  The rest of the stuff is slower while I finish up another swap this weekend.

And now the stress is getting to me because we are supposed to be moving a year sooner then I want to. My husband thinks that it's OK to try and move into a house that's under construction with an autistic kid. Get real hon.

I did pm you angielou1 and then read the messages here.... Duh! Crafting life hasn't been happy go luck and it just stinks.  I'm hope this weekend is quieter than the last two months and there isn't a naked poppet anymore.

Back to dinner then crafting! Unless someone wants to come to my house and make pizza.... It's goat cheese, bacon and artichokes tonight.... Yum!

So Margiej's package arrived at my house before I did on Monday but then I couldn't get to open it until yesterday and I'm finally posting pictures of her beautiful stuff she sent me! I was so spoiled and so everyone get ready for loads of pictures...


In there was two fairy houses, one was a painted birdhouse and the other one is (I'm guessing) an ice cream tub that actually opens up to the inside of the house with pictures, curtains and furniture. There was also a fairy journal and a fairy picture. The two painted rocks were from her daughter's driveway (they are already in one of my plants). And last but certainly not least is a fairy spoon. It's perched on my spices at the moment until I get a bigger kitchen in a few months.
Thank you Margie for everything and I'll post the other pictures shortly.

AYE, AYE, AYE ! I have been sooo busy with my youngest boy graduating High School, and my oldest son and wife, and my middle boy also getting ready to move out into their own apartment. AND to beat it, my husband getting ready to retire and anxious to sell home and move to Colorado.AYE, AYE ,AYE.
 MAY GOD GRANT ME PATIENCE AND STRENGTH.
So far I've finished the poppet and hair. I've gotten some clothes finished and shoes.Has anyone had any problems with the button joints popping out? I have. Am I pulling to hard on the thread? Or too much stuffing? Well at least they are staying in  now. I should be finished by the end of the week and sending on time.
How about everyone else? Any problems with sending out on time just let me know.

I'm slower than usual in crafting right now; we just did whirl wind moving of my niece this weekend and I overdid it Sad Haven't finished eyes, hair and clothes.

Just found the gallery and those are really adorable! Love the gnome and the itty bitty train figure? That's just more than impressive!

I don't often get supplies from goodwill or thrift stores, ours get picked clean really really fast.  I like to hit the clearance bins of the three big local craft stores Smiley 

I have to finish up my poppet swap and then I can stop dividing my crafting time as much.  I have one ____ just about finished and ready to start _______.  I can see this swap is going to be an "extras" party Smiley

I'm kinda stuck again because I only have three button covers.  None of the local JoAnnes has it and I'm going to have to figure out a work around to get it jointed or else stitch it down which I don't want to do.

"pjr107" Insted of the button covers you could use 2 buttons & have them on the outside of the arm or leg & you could then use a piece of the doll fabric to cover it or just use a button to match the fabric then it won't show much. I have done this & it works pretty good. Hope that helps! Wink

I have used that with wire in between the buttons. Just hate having to cut into the fabric and hope I'm right on where I put it.  I used the buttons with the shanks.
