Heehee, thanks ladies.  I love those hoodies to death!!  The details are mind boggling.

Here's a pic of the dresses.  They are really cute and well made.  The front wraps around and attaches at the side.  Kawaii!!  My girls were giddy with excitement over their dresses and insisted on sending Cherade9 a little thank you.

Have a nice day everyone!!

812  Noro scarf, oh why can't I have you?? in Knitting: Completed Projects by underthemountain on: September 07, 2007 09:35:37 PM
So I treated myself to 2 skeins of Noro one day and decided to make a simple k/p scarf out of it.  I was so happy since I was going to give this to my sis.  But when I told her about the yarn, she asked me not to give her anymore scarfs.  Ok, so I've been knitting her a scarf and hat every year for Christmas for a long time now.  Then I decided to keep it and I was happy again.  Of course then my mom saw it and asked if she could have it.  My mom never asks for anything so of course I was more than pleased to give it to her.  Yay!!  So I guess I am still happy, just a little disappointed that I am not getting it. 
Now I'm off to look thru my stash to see if I have anything there that I can knit up for myself...of course it won't be Noro.  But on the other hand I now understand why people rave about Noro.  The colors are so complex and I love all the different fibers.  Neato!!

Comments appreciated!

I managed to snap this of the girls this evening.  Did you notice the look that Minra is giving Nara.  I think she's a tad jealous that she did get an awesome hoodie..though she got the lovely top.  Doll ran off with her hoodie and I didn't manage to snap a pic of her in hers yet.

Thank you again Cherade9!!!

more pics to come.....

Yay!  I received from the wonderfully talented and super generous Cherade9!!

I was so super excited to find this waiting for me when I got home today.  I love mail and especially goodies for me and Lana to play with.  Tongue
Here's what I received:

2 lovely hoodies: This is her own pattern with working buttons and a hole in the back for all that dolly hair.  Awesomeness, no? 
And if that isn't great enough she is sending a red one later so that all my girls have one.  These are exquisite!!  I think my doll is officially better dressed than me. *sigh*
This was the main part of our Blythe swap, but then she spoiled me totally with the rest of these goodies.
3 matching dresses: Again another of her designs.  This is based on the 3 armhole wrap around dress.  She knits and sews like a dream.
A wonderful car coat for those chilly nights!
A totally cute felt Blythe head posed on top of yummy green fur jacket and top
A beret: Ooh la la!!
And some of her awesome jewelry.  I can't wait to show this off at work tomorrow.  Yay!!

I've spent a good part of the night just looking at everything.  Cherade9 you really know how to spoil your partner!!!
Thank you so much!!  I hope to dress my girls this weekend and get some action shots!!

Thank you Gatorwrangler for hosting such an awesome swap!!  Can't wait for the next round!!!

Today I received a wonderful swap package from my friend Hyakuyenknitter.  The initial package she sent me got lost and she was kind enough to send me another even though she had a family emergency.  She really, really spoiled me.  I was thrilled beyond belief with her generosity.
Behold fabrics!  ACK!  I'm outta my mind already from all this wonderful fabric, but she sent me even more goodies. 

Awesome craft books.  I totally can't wait to try these.  I love felties and I love beading and I love Hello Kitty so these are perfect.
A HK pen!  (My little one wants this.  It's mine!) 
HK patch
Little couple wall hanging
HK ribbon
Kerokeropi patch
and some sweet stickers

Hyakuyenknitter, you really spoiled me.  Thank you so much for your kindness.  Smiley

818  Tie-dye Baby AKA a new twist on filler for a diaper cake in Dyeing: Completed Projects by underthemountain on: September 02, 2007 06:38:43 AM
My daughter is a lil' crafter and loves to help me and was super excited to help make the tees for an upcoming baby shower for two of my friends.  We didn't want the siblings to be left out, so we decided to make tees for them too.  I was in charge of the tying part and Lana was in charge of the dyeing part, which was great because I have a real problem working with colors.  Lana has the kind of unihibitedness which lends itself to great art.

Here's Lana dying the tees....she's concentrating.  LOL.

Lana in her Bounty apron getting ready to cut the rubber bands and wash out the dye.

After a wash and tumble dry. Ta da! 
For the babies:

For their siblings:

And one for Lana:

And here they are in the bottom layer of the diaper cakes. 

I can't wait for the baby shower. Thanks for looking. Comments are welcome and appreciated.

Wow, everything is so lovely.  I can hardly wait for my package!!

Since Cherade9 received I thought I'd post pics of what I sent.  We decided to combine this with a personal trade so there's alot of stuff:

Shrinky dinks, Blythe postcards, Nara cards, and some Blythe clothes.

Closeups of the postcards:

Blythe and me jewelry.  I thought it would be a fun idea to make matching necklaces in human-sized and Blythe-sized...kinda a Mommy and Me thing.  Smiley

Dino, Cherry, Birdie tattoo,  and Copper flower necklaces.

I hope to hear back from Cherade9 soon.  Fingers crossed she'll post some action shots.  Smiley

Have a great day everyone!!
