It was Penelope waiting for me! I'm so glad she's home. She came back with an awesome Winter coat, a sweet party dress, a suitcase for all her clothes, a cd with music (can't wait to listen) and a box of yummy chocolate. When you said you were sending Smarties I was thinking the tart sugar discs
that we have here but these Smarties
are made of chocolate and therefore 1 million times better. It took a lot of constraint not to just open the box and devour them on first sight. They are currently all gone.
Here she is fresh out the box (I love her chenille accented coat):
And here's her in her sexy party dress:
From the scrapbook it looks like she had a lot of fun as oppose to yarnhags humble claims. She even went on a date with a serenading penguin! I think my favorite picture, though, is her trying on hockey equipment. Too funny!
Penelope is a pixie that I made especially for this swap from the Sprite pattern
on CrochetMe. I made her limbs shorter, used a smaller hook, colored her differently and added a wild mess of hair and little felt wings. I was concerned about her warmth so I sent her in a sweater, skirt and pixie hood too. She was fun to make and I'm glad she's back.
(I'll take better pictures later, I was just too excited to have her back)
Thanks yarnhag! You did a great job. And I also congratulate you on finding out the baby is a girl. Girls are the easiest to craft for, that's for certain. YAY!
