Awesome dotees! I especially like the first one, with the dreads. And the very first pic collage is great, she's a beautiful doll.

Those dotees look really cool!

Ok, here is me showing my ignorance, but what does "dotee" mean?

Dotees are mini art dolls, apparently they got their name from the woman who first created them a shortened form of Dorothy.

I love making them  Smiley

Started making this http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/juliana-wrap tonight using up my odds and ends of red DK. I don't know why I have so much red in my stash as I rarely wear it  Huh

Ah thank you! I thought it was something like that. And that wrap is so pretty I had to add it to my library Smiley. I don't think I have any red in my stash, but I do have a crazy ton of purple for some reason. Maybe I should bust through it soon ...

Kookaloo, those lace panties are BRILLIANT! That's a great solution to nakkie dolly syndrome, lol.

I'm about half finished those 55 monsters, just have to stuff them. I'm trying to get away with not buying any more safety eyes but if the creature calls for them in a size or colour I'm out of I'll have to break my craft supplies fast Tongue.
 
Here are 3 that I finished today.

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

So I make my daughters Easter dresses every year, but this year I decided to go with skirts.  I decided to use up some of the medium sized scraps I have by making them a little scrappy.  I thought they would be simple since they're just rectangles and triangles.  But once again I proved to myself that I really work better from a pattern.  I do think that they turned out super cute, after some frustration.  And they are totally from stash.  I'm particularly pleased that I used up every possibly usable bit of the red poppies--a couple of those panels were pieced together, but you can only tell if you know to look.

Dulcet, those skirts are lovely!
I'm glad I didn't take the craft supply diet pledge, because I just had the craft equivalent of a weekend long bender.  Cheesy  Craft store, hardware store, thrift store...But I did buy stuff to help me use up stash.
I made 17 key brooches earlier, and I have about 30 more in the works, to use up my stash of keys. Going to try to get them finished tomorrow, so I can get back to the rayguns.
