"If we have any family pictures prior to my great grandmother on either side, I'm not aware of them."

I know - it was quite a chore trying to dig these up from different family members - but SO worth it.  One day our kids (when we have 'em) will be able to look at these pictures and see who they came from.
613  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Froggy (with naughty bits) on: November 09, 2007 06:15:56 PM
Our family has a cottage on Kashabog Lake (about 2 hours north east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.)  I'd like to present The Kashabog Frog! He doesn't do much except drink beer with his hands on his bits queuing up songs on his mp3 player via remote - but hey, the cottage is for relaxing, after all!
(Okay, I removed the naughty bits and gave the frog to my nephew - but I had to take a few silly pics first...here's one of them).

614  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Generations Quasi Scrapbook *Updated with Detail Pics* on: November 09, 2007 06:05:55 PM
I made these shadow boxes to display on our guest book table at our wedding.  Each little tag represents a different generation of my husband's ancestors...


And my ancestors...

I love how these turned out.  They took me so long and I had the house taken over with tiny bits of paper forever.  There's a lot of personal touches in all the details of the collage that represents each of our family histories (such as the coat of arms of Nova Scotia, where my husband's mom's family is from).  The photo on the far left of the second collage is my great great grandmother in her nurse's uniform in 1826!
This was such a labour of love - I'm so happy to be able to show it off to all of you!

Some detail shots:











And here's how they were displayed at our wedding reception:

I got going on my jumbo-sized poppet tonight.  He has bunny ears.  The first photo is a comparison between Ghilie's normal-sized pattern (blue leg) and the enlarged version I blew-up on the photocopier.  The second pic is a summary of tonight's progress. (I'm going to make him silky pyjamas in the red printed fabric on the inside of his ears).
Ghilie, this pattern is really great.  Generally my sewing experiments are disasters - but I'm so happy with how this is turning out. (I'm having a much easier time sewing the bigger body parts - beginners out there may want to try enlarging the pattern.)

So... started my poppet last night - got all the limbs sewed and stuffed. He/she is a lot smaller than I thought she/he would be.  I think I'm going to scale-up the pattern on the photocopier at work and make one about 3 times as big.  I'm hoping that sewing around the corners will be a little easier on a bigger pattern - I'm not a pro at sewing.
It snowed here last night! Yippi!

 Grin Can I Poppet-Along too? I have the pattern already - now that I'm finished my wedding thank-you cards, I'm alowed to craft again! How do the craft-alongs work?  Is there a deadline for completion?

This is absolutely gorgeous. I've never seen anything like it! What is the technique called?  How would one learn how to do this? It's spectacular!
