 Grin Al looks like he is having fun so far! And way cool that he got to meet the artist!

Poor Kimi hasn't been out very much, so far. We had torrential rain on the 4th, so no fireworks (even of the illegal kind in the back yard Wink ). I've been attached to a sewing machine since Tuesday in preparation for a craft fair (and we sold nothing!).

She's mostly been hanging with her new friends:

And doing some crafty reading (she may be doing some planning for a future adventure!):

Today, we started the tour of the city. Kimi wanted to check out the colleges first:

She should be having many more adventures in the coming weeks!

Hey kikigirl! Kimi Darebear is so cute! I love her little eye mask! I hope she enjoys her adventures!

This is Al, on his way...

He is carrying his ever-present messenger bag, which contains a slightly scorched star chart and some parts from his ship.

His journey across the country should be cake compared to his journey across the galaxy! Al crash-landed in my back yard, taking out a section of the stone wall. I heard the crash and saw a flash (hence the scorched star chart and parts of his ship...sadly, all that remains), and found Al when I went out to investigate!

Here's the smashed wall...Al is lucky that he survived! The postal service should be cake after that!

He's certainly looking forward to many adventures!

Here's the pic of my Book Purse Kit from balletfreak! She sent along a book, funky fabric and a snazzy black ribbon. It also came with a lovely card, and a great little booklet of hand-written and drawn instructions. As soon as I finish reading the book Wink , I'll be making the purse!

Thanks, balletfreak! I love it!

Here's a photo of the Snuggles blankets that my 7th grade students and I completed. We made 18 blankets in all, and I'll be dropping them off at a local shelter this week. Most of the blankets are crocheted, but one student knitted 3 of them. It was great fun to watch the students sitting in little groups working on their crocheting and chatting away!

My package arrived from crescentfresh today!

There is a domino pendant with a coffee bean on it, a tea box filled with yummy sounding teas and decoupaged with tea bag envelopes, a poetry journal with a coffee poem in it and a bag in my favorite shade of green!

Thanks crescentfresh!

And, I got my package from christinacoghill today! I'm supposed to be grading papers and on a temporary ban from Craftster until they are done, but since the ban is self-imposed, I figured that I could break the ban for a minute and post my pics.

Everything together...

There's an adorable crocheted owl stuffie, which is going on my desk, a macrame owl necklace (nothing says retro like owls and macrame!), a crocheted owl on a keyring, a panel with 2 of the knitted owl cables (it has a crocheted border, and I just happen to have the same yarn, so I may attempt to crochet a hat around it!), and a felt tree with 2 pairs of owl shrinky dink earrings and a two pairs of hair clips (owls and baby deer). I love how the owls are perched in the tree!

Here's a close-up of the tree with the earrings and hair clips. And, try as I might, I couldn't get a clear picture of the owl cables.

Thanks Christina for the great package!! Whoo-hoo!

Well, my partner recieved a couple of weeks ago, but hasn't had a chance to post pics yet. So I hope she doesn't mind if I post a few. I don't have a group shot of what I sent, so I have to post a bunch of pics...

She is a Dragon, so...

A set of dragon note cards (the paper is black but it doesn't look too black in the pic!):

A lined zipper pouch with characters for dragon and a dragon image:

A small drawstring pouch with a dragon on it:

Inside the pouch, I put a pair of earrings and a necklace that I made with cool dragon charms and a very neat dragon pendant:

I also made a some felt fortune cookies and a bookmark out of ribbon and some charms. I sent along a pair of paper lanterns and a "Make Your Own Dragon" kit (with dragons I found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=167580.0).

I had a blast putting this all together!

Okay, it only took me about 3 months, but my Frankenteddy is finally finished! Thanks to: Brianknits, Homerof2, Igobylorib and pinkstars69- (Team Pooh Bear) for sending such great fabrics! I had my doubts about what he was going to look like when I finally got it all together, but he came out way better looking than I expected!

I stitched his mouth and belly button (he has an "outie") on today, so he is officially done!

459  Re: 12" Crochet Square of the Month Craftalong - MAY in Crochetalongs by craftADDchick on: May 27, 2007 09:24:41 AM
Here is my October easy square! I was going to post it before I had breakfast this morning, but I realized that I had left it in the car (craft day at a friend's house yesterday) and I was still in my PJs. I knew I had to post the pic to prove that I had actually done it!  Grin Grin Wink

I used Simply Soft Grey Heather. I had to add two extra rounds to get it to the 12" size. I've printed out the November easy square, which also uses an I hook, so I might have to find a J to make this one with.

460  Crocheted Zipper Pouch in Crochet: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: May 23, 2007 05:23:24 PM
A few months ago, I made this sample piece (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=146877.msg1507923;topicseen#msg1507923) from a Japanese crochet book.

I finally got around to making something with it! I picked up some fat quarters and a zipper and followed the tutorial for a lined zipper pouch (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0). I tried out something new with the zipper (still needs work), but overall, I'm pretty happy with it. Which is good, since it's a gift. I probably should have blocked it first, since it bows on the sides...lesson learned.

The crocheted piece is just on the front- I stitched it on to the fabric...
