OKAY Dotee fans! The final dotee has been received! I made this dotee for Angelicus. She currently does not have access to a camera cord to be able to post pics, so I volunteered to show everyone her lovely.


Sorry for the poor quality, but it was the best I could do at the time. She was upcycled using one of my daughter's old sun dresses that she has long ago outgrown. The petals are from the same dining room flower used for Smmarrt's dotee. It is hard to tell but I used gold toned embroidery floss for the outline of the mouth and eyes. And because I think the best things in life have a bit of sparkle to them, I added touches of gold glitter on  each sunflower and around the face. I think she will bring warmth to even the most miserable gray/rainy day.

Thank you all so much for the heart-warming sentiments. Even with the bumps/craters that my road in life has gained, life goes on all around and it was nice to use this swap as a vehicle to merge back into the hectic day to day traffic of things.

Many BLESSINGS from my family to all of you!

Just wondering...Does crafting cause more stress than it relieves?

What a happy and gorgeous dotee!  You can definitely see the details put into this--and the story and use of recycled items is wonderful!

I agree that sparkley things can make even the dullest days bright and cheery!

I love that dotee!!

I didn't realize that there was an outstanding dotee that had to be posted.

Oh yes--however, there is a part two to this!

Yesterday, I received the lost one!!!  The envelope was dated July 19!!  I am so glad these little guys did not get lost because they are awesome!!

Thanks butweed for TWO cuties!!!  I will be sending you something for your extra effort!

I finally got a chance to take pics!

Here are the TWO dotees I received from Butweed!  We thought the first one was lost forever (thank goodness it wasn't!!)...

Here is the replacement cutie I got...such a sweet princess!! When I have better hand control, I will try to get a better pic of the face!


and here is the one that showed up two months later!!!  I love seahorses, so I am relieved they made it to me!


Thank you Butweed and the dotee gods!  I will be sending you a little something for working so hard on both little dotees for my collection!

I guess it is time for another round.  What do you say Smmarrt, are you for another one?
