7091  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Dotee Doll ROUND TWO Gallery on: July 28, 2008 11:36:18 AM
I received my adorable Dotee, Sewphie, from AlwaysInspired! My pictures do not do her justice- she is adorable (I just love her jaunty little thimble hat!). Her face is hand drawn on a large black button, and her "legs" are sewing notions: Thread spool, bobbin, tape measure. And, I love the zipper down the front (I have a thing for zippers!). And, she hangs with rick-rack!! Too cute!



Thanks, AlwaysInspired!

I've been following along for a while now, and I'm amazed at A) Your progress and B) your ingenuity!

Can't wait to see the next step!

Thanks for the words of sympathy and advice! It was lucky that it happened on summer vacation so I didn't have to miss a week of school (because my sub plans are never in order Tongue ). I'm looking forward to working on things at a nice slow pace so I can A) Do a really good job B) Take plenty of naps and C) Not be a crazy woman finishing at the last minute!

I really wanted to make one of my items last weekend, though! I am very tempted to give it as a birthday gift. But, it's something that I really could have used last week, so I figured that if I made mine and then used it, then I wouldn't be able to give it away because it was used! Cheesy

I have one done.. and some faces for the rest.. I actually made some polymer clay faces!  They need sanding.. so they might not make it.. my first ones are THICK... but some glow in the dark.. which I just love.. looked through my beading mag.. and I could get some glow in the dark beads... hmmmm... I do have glow in the dark thread and paint.. may have to play some more....

Instead of sleeping, my brain has been sifting through ideas for my dotees and I actually thought about making glow in the dark faces! too funny! But then, I wouldn't need to go shopping since I already have the supplies... and I really need to GO SHOPPING!!

I finished my June square! But I still have to weave in the ends...

I was at my mom's recuperating from a pulled back muscle and the one thing I grabbed on the way out the door was the yarn and square! I didn't go on to July because I didn't do July '07 yet, and since I'm making such good progress, I'm superstitious about skipping the '07 square Tongue

So, I'll post my June square in a day or two and then I'll be starting on my July squares...quickly followed by August Wink

Everyone's squares are looking great!

Wow! Both of my awesome partners (longtimegeek and Tanza) are way ahead of me! But, I have a legitimate excuse...really!

On Friday the 18th of July, as a reward for surviving the physics class of doom, I went shopping for supplies for my items. I came with a full weekend of crafting joy planned. But, from sitting for about 40 hours listening to physics blah blah blah, my back was killing me! So, I opted to sleep on the futon in the spare room. As I was clearing off the piles of laundry, I leaned and lifted, and pulled out my back. Out of commission for a week! I spent most of it at my mom's, but because of the "meds," I wasn't thinking clearly enough to remember to pack my craft supplies. So, a week of no crafting! Ack!! But now, while still not 100%, at least I'm home, and can craft when I'm up to it...and then take nice long naps Wink

Oh my! So many awesome things up for grabs in this round (as in the last round Wink ). I'll have to start my "Perfect for me" and "Perfect Gift for" list again! So far, everything is perfect for me.

And, I have a brown ami owl just like the blue one being offered. They'd make a lovely couple!!

michelleames, your dotees are adorable! Way to think outside the box! Their faces are adorable!

And, AlwaysInspired, I love the mermaid! Gorgeous work!

I am officially off of the pain meds (yay! and thanks for all of the kind words Wink ) and I am home, so I should FINALLY be able to start on Tuesday. I have one other swap to knock out of the park tomorrow and then it is all dotees! Of course, I realized that I gave all of my embroidery floss to my sister, so I'll have to GO SHOPPING!!

Can you tell I've been cooped up in the house, unable to drive for a week!! With no craft supplies, even???

I'm off to check out the gallery...

Okay, tomorrow, I should finally be able to do my crafting! And, for some reason, I thought send-outs were the 28th, so I might actually be able to send on time! Whew! I'm home and off my pain meds (just ibuprofen, now) so I should even be able to craft something decent Wink

Yay!
