11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: The Poppet Mini Swap Round 2 (Sign-ups April 28th-May 12th) (Send-by June 14th) on: June 03, 2010 08:06:11 AM
Checking in. I feel like my progress is going soooo slowly. And the pressure is on for me, since I've already received such a great poppet myself! Also, she told me yesterday that she is not what I thought she was, so I am rethinking her clothing. My plans for tonight: weed the garden and work on poppet clothes. Hair I am hoping to weft soon, but save to do on my trip this weekend. I think I will likely include a couple of outfits as I am indecisive as to what she should wear.

I did not manage to completely complete my poppet this weekend as I had hoped, but she does have a body and head. Next up: hair. I also need to figure out what she would like to wear. And then get started on extras. I hope I can make a lot of good progress this week. I feel that deadline creeping up on me...

Forgot how long stuffing can take! I've been working on the body for what seems like days. But it hasn't been really that long. It's just with the nice weather we're having here, I've been having a hard time staying inside and being disciplined. My poppet may be laying out in the sun with me today. Smiley

Checking in (really like that you do an official check-in instead - the other swaps I've been in have just said you had to, but not really paid much attention to if you did or not). I am making progress. not as fast of progress as I'd like to be making, but still progress. Right now I am stuffing. Still need to work on eyes and hair and clothes. And I am hoping to finish this weekend, but it seems a little optomistic at this point. We'll see, it could happen. Smiley

I just wanted to pipe up and say that I am the lucky recipient of the poppet above and I love love love her! Smiley Thanks again, averyg! Smiley

Ok, I did warn y'all there would be more pictures, so don't say I didn't! Smiley

And yes, before we go any farther, Mooglie, the hedgehog, is too adorable for words. So. Stinkin. CUTE! And, I didn't even introduce my poppet, did I??? Well, I was in a terrible hurry, but still, so very sorry! Her name is Amarinth. And she's a bohemian hippy fairy poppet. I love her!!! Smiley  And averyg did a wonderful job packing her and wrote the nicest notes and everything, and I was a very impatient package opener, so you'll just have to take my word for it. Smiley

But, PICTURES!!!


This is Amarinth with her friend Mooglie. Did you notice her fabulous jewelry??? Wow! I have no skills in that department, so totally impressed and excited to see jewelry!


Here she is showing off her really pretty wings. My sister and I weren't sure at first if they were store bought or made, but upon closer inspection, I think they're homemade! Wow! And don't they look great on her? Again, I'm in awe of averyg's mad skills!


Can you spot the small difference in this picture? It's the belt. averyg said she and her family couldn't decide what fabric to use, so she sent both.



And, averyg even included a couple of extras! Some jewelry for me to match my poppet. Wow! And you did all this in like two days??? Amazing...

I had to take two sets of pictures this morning because I didn't make sure the camera settings were all right before I took the first set. I'm still not as pleased as I could be with the color in these. She's closest to the color in the first picture of this group. But I am glad I got out there and got the photos taken because I definitely wanted to share the awesomeness!

Fighting with Flickr and I've run out of time, so this is all for right now, but there are more.







Ok, I promise you there would be more explaination and stuff if I were not already late for where I need to be. More later tonight! Smiley

I DID I DID I DID!!!! And I got the most awesomest poppet! She rocks so very much! I love her! Thanks averyg!!! And I'm normally uber-good about taking swap pictures the second I have a chance, but I want to get some really good pictures outside, so it is going to have to wait until tomorrow or Monday as I was in class all day today and will be again tomorrow. So, I'm very sorry to keep everyone on pins and needs for one (or two, but hopefully just one) more day. All's I can say is you guys are gonna be sooo jealous!!! Cheesy

AAAAND... My poppet has made it to Illinois. Finally! She's about 45 minutes away as of the last update on the tracking page, but I'm still guessing she won't get here until tomorrow as I think she'll have to go through my local PO to be sorted and given to my mail carrier. But TOMORROW!!!! WHEEEEE!!!
