deathbeforedishes: I'm so glad the ring fit! I was worried about that. I do have a ring sizer, but sometimes it's hard to tell if it's accurate when the ring is not completely round. Smiley

glasskicker, I might have to put some slumped bottles on my wishlist now! Wink

Oath Keeper: I love that fish. He's super cute. I really like that brooch too!

Thanks for the compliments all!

Those temple blocks are amazing!

Whew! I've got a lot of big projects that I'm almost done with. Hopefully I can finish some of those this weekend. I have gotten a few things done. This is the only thing I can share so far.

Thanks so much for passing them on! Maddy loves stories, and I think it would be fun for me to read the nursery rhymes to her with actions.  Grin

I received an awesome package of spoilage for Maddy from deathbeforedishes yesterday.

Slippers and felt cupcakes:

Hair bows!

And then, came a massive amount of goodies for Maddy's felt board:

Here's the rest of the pile and some books to go with them:

(sorry those last two pics seem to be blurry)

deathbeforedishes, thanks so much! the slippers fit great. The hair bows are super cute, and those felt nursery rhyme pieces are fabulous! Where did you get those?

Hey everyone. I was also in the last round of the Doctor Who swap. I did a couple of things, but the thing I'm most proud of is an art piece to represent the 6th Doctor.

you can read a whole post about it here. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=423215.0#axzz2S4OfwADI

I also sent a crack in the wall I cut out of vinyl for her wall:
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / The 6th Doctor in rectangular form on: May 01, 2013 02:06:58 PM
I recently participated in the Doctor Who rd. 8 swap. My partner said she liked the 6th doctor best. He has a wild suit. (Pic here) I thought it would be fun to try and recreate the suit in art form. I took a rectangular canvas and glued various fabrics around it to make it look like the suit.

Here it is:

I used some of the left over ribbon from his tie to make a hanger.

the Back:

Here's a side so you can see the fabric under the lapels:

all the fabric was from the thrift store. I used a little boy's button down for the collar of the shirt. Both of the plaids were napkins. The gold lapel of the jacket was a tie, and the peach side was another napkin. I had a lot of fun figuring out how to make this happen. The only thing I think I'm missing is a cat pin on the lapel. What do you think?
