I received an adorable dotee from teachingjonah today! Her name is Rae and she has the sweetest little face! She's made of a beautiful batik fabric and is covered with little stars and beads. I love her!

Thanks, teachingjonah!

Okay, I never did wash them the other night, so I'm doing that today, and then heading to the PO. Hopefully as soon as they come out of the dryer!

Oh, man! I've fallen way behind! I have to post my June (just as soon as I finish weaving in the ends) and then I still have July (07 and 08!) to do! But, after Wednesday, I should be able to tackle them... slowly but surely!

I love how many characters Sarcastra has come up with using one basic form. I can't wait to see the rest of them!

And, on my dotee, the charms are actually buttons!

I can't wait to hang all of mine together! I think I might steal/borrow/copy/sincerely-imitate this idea from panda in Round 1: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=250388.msg2831170;topicseen#msg2831170

So fun!

I love the caterpillar and the owls, plus the apples- they give it a nice burst of color!

I have been planning to make one of these (I've heard them referred to as 'Winter Gardens'), but I've been doing "research" on them. Nothing like just going out there and grabbing a clump of moss, though! Since it grows abundantly in my yard, I have a readily available supply.

A note about the potting soil, though- make sure it doesn't have any fertilizer in it! The Miracle Grow brand contains fertilizer. And, I've read that it's a bad idea to open them up once you've sealed the container because it throws off the environment (unless it's looking bone dry and you need to add a bit of H2O!).

Thanks for re-igniting my desire to make one of these!

Yay! I got the coolest doll from Sarcastra today (and she even included a piece of fabric with the pattern so I could make him an accomplice  Cheesy ). She based her idea on my love of cop and detective shows.

Prisoner Dotee #0142130

And the dangly bits are chains, and beads with a police car charm and a saw charm (handy for jail breaks!)

Thanks Sarcastra! I love it!

I have a swap to get out of the way and in the mail tomorrow, then I can work on my item. I hope to have it posted by Sunday!

That bedside book pocket thingie is a neat idea! Wish I'd thought of that...

And lots of other cool stuff- love the bookmark (even though I seldom use them...)!

I'm going to the summer conference put on by my teachers' union. It's on the lovely campus of Williams College in Williamstown, MA. I finally got into a workshop I've been trying to get into for a few years- a whole day class on bookmaking! And then I signed up for some other crafty type workshops. I usually go to the technology and curriculum sessions (I'm our local's webmaster, and I felt obligated), but this year I said, "The heck with that! I want to have fun!"

So, I'll be gone for a few days, and then I'll be sewing away!

I have one like it too! It was the almond back loop, I think. Somehow, I kept missing stitches at the ends of the rows, so I ended up with trapezoid...

The bunny came out pretty cute! I might have to make one of those...

Which reminds me... I finished a cloth a bit ago (the star, I think) so I need to find it so I can post it! I'll be 50 by the time I make 50, at the rate I'm going Wink
