Thanks for the positive comments-glad I was able to make folks smile  Wink

Possibly the funniest part ends up being the actual pillow fabric.  I thought I was being clever, using scraps my friend had given me leftover from her bedroom curtains-awesome, I thought, I was guaranteed a match.  When she noticed this, she informed me that when they move to their new house, those would be the guest room curtains so the pillow would have to go in there... welcoming, I think.

"Um, maybe we should stay at the hotel, hon."  Brilliant!

3713  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Varmint Voodoo: Loud-mouthed Jerk Edition on: February 18, 2009 04:23:19 PM
This Varmint Voodoo doll is for those situations when you have to tolerate a Loud-mouth Jerk. The neighbor, friend-of-a-friend, sibling, in-law, ex-boyfriend/husband, baby-daddy, co-worker, boss, supplier, vendor, distant (and not-so-distant) relative, coach, board member, client, etc. that is in your life and, at least for now, there's nothing you can do about it. No real or imagined hexes have been placed on Varmint Voodoo dolls, but dang if you dont feel a little better after poking one with a pin* (three included).



Approx: 5 x 3.5 x 1.75; its just the right size for humanely (and legally) taking out your frustrations with your particular jerk!

I'm looking for an appropriate female image, too.

This sure does rock!  Add me to the list of curious craftsters dying to know how you got them to look so good on both sides!  Man, these are so precise and so charming.

Great thinking!  Great execution!  When I saw the thumbnail, I thought "what could possibly be done to that table to bring it into the 21st century?" and you answered my question.  Very inspiring.

Hahahaha!  You've riffed on one of my favorite phrases to joke around with and done a nice job with your stitching to boot!

WHEE!  I'm so excited!  I've been quashing my excitement until I heard it was on it's way, but now it's full blown!  Well, as full blown as it can be after a 13 hour day... I'm jumping on the inside!  If this ends my being one of those swap packages that tours the country 3 times over before arriving, I can't be responsible for my actions.   Wink

Thanks, y'all.  I miss that house sometimes... like the storage space.  Sigh.  The plant growing in between the stones in the path is called Bluestar Creeper (or maybe it's Blue Star Creeper).  Of course, I don't know the Latin.

So, I'm feeling nostalgic and I thought I'd share the first house I built that I have photos of...



It's not "tiny", but not huge (just over 1800 sq ft).  Started in 1998 with my dad and ex-husband.  We literally built lots of it.  Did the foundation, roof, some siding, rough-in and finish plumbing and electric, some of the floors, tile, some painting... other stuff; spent about 6 months of evenings and weekends.  Lots of help from friends (finish carpentry (pro/friend), the other things listed) and a few skilled professionals (framing, siding, drywall, painters).  Anyway... yeah.

That stone path is about 1 ton of Pennsylvania Blue Stone... and I move every piece of it all by myself at least twice building that.  For awhile I was telling people I moved 2 tons of rock in 4 days... and it was true.  I was a lot stronger in those days.   Wink
