It turned out so nice, MissingWillow!

I am still hoping to do an applique quilt...I have so many food fabrics...your story is inspiring!

Congrats on the ribbon!

What a treasure you inherited!

I think sachets as alexus1325 suggested are a great idea!  If you do use coffee beans, remember that they do have an oil so you might want to make a liner bag before putting them into a treasured hanky!

How about embroidering the hankies with something special about your grandmother?

If the scarves are not precious, you could cut them up and make fabric bowls or coasters...make them flat enough so that a man can use one to hold keys, coins, etc.  To make them more masculine, you could mix in other fabrics...

 Cheesy

I got the best laugh at of this post...

What a creative assignment!  The wink mechanism was ingenious...you betcha!  Wink

I am thankful that using art to make a statement is alive and well...

good job...I bet it was fun as well...who wouldn't like to see a huge puppet head walking around?  Grin

What a cutie stuffie!!

Do you guys have problems giving away your stuffies?  I made a ton of ninnis and I can't seem to give them away...each time I put one in a box as an extra, I pull it out at the last minute! Grin

I have no problems giving away dotees or tiny stuffies, but the cute ones.....oh my...I want them all!

...you are such an inspiration and encouraging organizer!  I think you might have spurred on a lifelong hobby for me!

hee hee I have been so busy with my house that I lost 4 pounds...the wee house diet... Grin

Thanks for the comments!  I have quite a bit of tiny tiles left over so I am going to start a box of supplies for future homes...I am going to start working on the outside chimney construction...not sure how yet...

cackle--I wish I was more experienced in polymer clay because I think it would be great to have wrought iron accents through out my house...maybe for a future home I will pick up some skills! Hubby also suggested using using a paper towel or toilet paper tube to make an enclosed spiral staircase...I think they are a bit big, but I get what he is suggesting...next house...Cheesy

I am having a lot of trouble fitting my roof onto my house...the tabs just don't want to fit into the holes!  I am about to cut them off and just glue the roof on...I will try later this week when I am not frustrated!

You guys have so many great ideas about future houses...a movie room...tiny popcorn!!

I managed to make wee curtains and a bed frame using tiny spools of thread as the legs...my little guy found a postage stamp so I hung it on the wall for him...I can't wait until he leaves me some more things he wants to put into his new home...I did notice he forgot his boots on the porch...Grin
