Good luck to everyone on finding their supplies! I have furry goblins I call "cats" that knock my craft supplies all over the house. Especially the small supplies I need right away to finish a project. Roll Eyes

I finally took pictures of my poppet!



Seren is completely hand sewn, which is why she took me so long to finish. Tongue



She is a star polishing fairy (I made up a whole back story for her), and I even made a pair of goggles for her (eye protection is very important when polishing stars!).
Thanks so much for this awesome pattern, ghilie! I've never sewn anything this complex looking before. Smiley

Why is it, whenever I want to make a poppet/punkin, I forget where I put the stupid jointing needle? Has anybody seen it?
    NEEDLE, WHY U NO STAY PUT???

LOL, CB, I don't think I really lose things (cept my sanity and that was lost years ago),they just take meandering journeys to goodness knows where. Probably to be in a fantasy land that doesn't have a grumpy old lady saying "Now where the heck did you disappear to this time." (Well that is the polite version).

Thanks for the input!

And I know about little fuzzy theives! When I have to pin large projects, I do it on the floor. My little girl cat loves my shiny, pearly pins. She notoriously creeps up on the fabric, lays down and when she thinks I'm not looking, proceeds to pull the "pretties" out with her teeth. When I yell at her, she hunkers down, ears flat, eyes half closed (she knows she's in trouble), grabs another pin and runs. She's such a brat! She then repeats til the item is finished.

I'd consider putting a pet who did that into another room when pinning anything, if they were to swallow one you'd be looking at surgery :/.


Seren looks great, I can't believe you sewed all of that by hand! Whew...

LOL, rideit! I have cat who gets hyperfocused on my knitting needles when I'm knitting. I have to be careful she doesn't attack them! Wink

Thanks craftylittlemonkey, Belladune, and meleriffic!

my cat likes to help keep my yarn untangled when I am doing crochet or hair wigs for the poppets. I will end up with it strunded across the couch if I walk away with it out.

Just finished two poppets for the Significant other poppet swap cant wait to send out Monday morning. Gonna be a small gallery there were only 4 swappers but gonna be a great one. Cant wait to see what everyone has made.

This is ATTEMPT number 4 to post.

Seren is wonderful and I love the fact that she is a Star Polisher. Now I know why the stars always twinkle so beautifully.
