If you like, but I usually go by Kookie or Kook  Wink

Ribbon yarn: http://www.paviyarns.co.uk/shop/413/762/767/index.htm
I have ni idea what brand mine was as it was un-banded but this is what it looks like before it's been used  Smiley

Your delicious cupcake dress is very cute  Cheesy

 michelleandbean - the TM patches are fab!

Here's a morsbag I made as practice. I'm in the morsbag swap here on craftster.  http://www.morsbags.com/ The bag has french seams, which I've never done before, so I really needed to make this practice bag. It turned out cute and was easy! I'm going to give this to my daughter for grocery shopping.

I've also been sewing for our local hospice unit. I make "memory bears". When a hospice volunteer visits a family, she asks for an article of clothing that the person has worn. After the person passes away, we sew these bears and give them to the family. The pattern that we work with can be difficult sometimes, but I just muddle through.

A few other WIPs: a knitted scarf w/ ribbon woven through it; some page markers for our hymnals at church; and the morsbag swap (I'll post pics of these items after my partner receives the package from me next week).

Fabulous dress, aprettymess!  I think the words and the fabric work together perfectly!

That bag is very nifty!  And memory bears - that is such an awesome gift you give to those families, mandys_momma!  My father was in hospice and I know my mom and I would have greatly treasured such a gift after that difficult time.

apm, I think you and my bff have the same style. She's into the rockabilly/Rosie the riveter look. She calls herself a Princess Rawkstar Detective. Cheesy

rlb, smash books are commercially produced and are very big in the scrapbooking world. Everyone else calls them junque journals. What I love about them is that they're meant to be messy and random. Just bits and bobs of everyday life. I'm a scrapper, so it's nice to break out of Perfectly Appointed Layout Mode and get crazy with these mini-books! These are off-limits to the craft police. Grin
