It's all very cute. I'm quite fond of the little back to school outfit.
I don't think the back of the owl dress is too busy at all. I love it.

there seems to be a pic missing. Just the link is there. It appears to be an HTML problem, a missing "[img" at the beginning of the line.

finally my pics got uploaded...  I'm not a very good photographer...

First the whole shebang:

Top left is some iron-on transfers of sunbonnet Sue and Bill On the top right of the top of the stool is some fleur-de-lis brads. Love 'em! top center is some crafty safety pins. The heart shaped bench/stool with the bunny face on it she painted. The stool is really well made, some assembly required. My hand hurts today so I'll do that tomorrow.

Close up of some goodies:

The rub on transfers say "domestic angel on duty" "crafting forever, housework whenever" That is soooo very much me! The round blue thing with the red heart has a mirror on the other side. Very cute. I didn't think I could get a good shot of the mirror with the flash and all.

A not too bad shot of button flowers:

Aren't they cute? She had some in her wists and I had to add them to mine. Some of them are topped with flower shaped buttons and one has a star! Too cute. I couldn't find a vase... She made them for me.

Crafted Goodies:
bench - .75
greay paint - .10
buttons - .25
wire - free - freecycle

pins - .75
transfers - 1.00
transfer - .25
fleur-de-lis brads .75
beads - .75
mirror - .50

Total $5.10

bag of Circus Peanuts from Mom & Dad - priceless and gone, the bag said 3 servings but I only got one serving out of it.

I'm so happy, so happy! Thanks bigfatroses and family! Thanks craftydeb. And craftydeb sign me up for BH Swap round 6! Maybe  it's just a sugar high...

These are some of the fabrics I'm going to use. I bought the bottom fabrics years ago knowing I would use them for a quilt someday. Now I have found the quilt and it's time to get to work. The flowery fabric on the bottom left will be used in a number of blocks. The fabric on the bottom right, a collage style coordinating print, will mostly be for the backing. I will use the quilt as a wall hanging. The top left fabric I'm using in the Atlanta Mystery Quilt-along. The yellow dragonfly fab I'm not sure about. It's glittery and stiff.

Block S is complete:

One Block V1 is complete:

I have some pesky pics.

so do you think I should use this first one?

Every time I look at it I have a need to make a Barbie tent!
Or would this one be better?

I think I'll go with this:

The whole shebang:

I've really only completely stitched the nine patches and the half squares so far. The rest is just to get a perspective on it all. I don't have room for a design wall. The one in the center the colors are too dark. The other eight are really close to true, a little on the pale side. For step 4 I'm gonna fussy cut the bird fab. I can only get four different cuts out of it so two of each.

Do you guys read Quiltmaker? I want to make the Bunny Patch Garden. I can use scraps for it too. I'm gonna use some bright colors for most of it.

OK here is what I have so far:
I have a pile of yellows maybe 10 diff fabs.
I have a bigger pile of greens, maybe 20 diff fabs.
Those are from a sunflower quilt I've been working on. And I'm using those scraps for this quilt.
The nine patches are stitched. A bunch of half squares are all stitched up and I'm auditioning them.

I've already eliminated that dark one in the top right corner as too dark. The two greens on the second row are too light to be darks. So they have bee eliminated. The two yellows on the sides look to light to be mediums. So they have been eliminated. I guess once I make those changes and stitch them up it'll look ok. I feel I need some larger prints. When I was at malWart the other day I picked up a piece of pink, yellow, green camo fab that is mighty ugly but might be what I need. Then again it may be too bright. It was 60c. Probably the ugliest fab I've ever bought!
Feedback please.

17  Poppet - Bridal Sweet Bunny in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by sactownsue on: March 20, 2008 11:20:37 PM
Cue music.

"Chantilly lace, pretty face... a wiggle when she walks... makes the world go round, round, round..."

music fades

Narrator: "Thank you, Big Bopper."

music blasts
"Oh, baby that's what I like!"

Narrator: "Thank you! Big Bopper!. Today's bride demands options. For our finale, our only presentation actually, our lovely model, Chantilly, is wearing Bridal Sweet separates. Chantilly is ready for a woodland wedding among the spring flowers. Beginning with a  torquoise bustier made with a shiny satin on one side reversible to a crepe satin. The first underskirt is of a sparkly torquoise mesh. The second underskirt is a sparkly ivory organza. The overskirt is shiny ivory satin with a gentle curve toward the back. All of the pieces can be mixed and matched as the bride desires for her own dress or for the bridesmaids. The satin overskirt has  an opening that can be worn with the opening in the front or back. The overskirt is available as a train with the opening in front. All skirts are available in any length desired and in a variety of colors.

The front view.

Showing off her garter.

The other pieces in the line will be unveiled shortly.

I've taken my inspiration from other designers such as gilie, crafty-canadian, craftewoman, Eliea and of course that is only the beginning of that list. It's spring, almost Easter, time of rebirth, and soon weddings. And of course I'd be know one without my house bunnies. My mother might have said otherwise. And I'd be sleeping in the rabbit hutch outside, if I had one, if my first official poppet wasn't a rabbit. So it is.

Happy spring everyone!
