12  Re: The Ongoing Poppet and Punkin-Along in Craftalongs by beth8144 on: September 09, 2012 12:26:58 PM
So I organized and cleaned my kiddos room before she started school. And I wanted to display some of her poppets. And I had to become a little creative and wanted to show what I did. Some of them are on the shelf, and the one she stuffed and her Maribel poppet are on her dresser, but the elf one I did and the mermaids I didnt have room for on the dresser and didnt want them in her doll chest. So I put ribbons around their neck and hung them on the walls. So technically they are being hung on the wall, but I think they look cute how bout you?

Just thought I would share.

13  Repunzel wig in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by beth8144 on: September 08, 2012 12:05:43 PM
Recently I did a personal swap with dfabric and I made her a pirate hat and eyepatch for her son and for her daughter I made her a Repunzel wig. Because I knew my kiddo would want one I made two, and sent the better one off for the swap. My daughters one has the flowers on the side, there was a blank spot. She loves it, she is 5 years old and the wig just hits the floor so it is quite long.

My daughters

Both hats I sent for the swap

Thanks for looking.

Ok so not so long ago, dfabbric and I did a personal trade, she made the most amazing mini hats, a top hat and a pirate hat. We do Murder mysteries and I can use them for costumes. The are hats embroidered on organza using her machine. Since I wanted to use them for different shows, she sent items to decorate them with. Here are the beauties she sent me.

The goodies she sent along to decorate

In exchange for 2 hats I sent her two for her kids. Her daughter wanted a Rapunzel wig, and her son a pirate hat and eye patch.

I would say for sure it was a great personal swap.
Thanks again dfabbric

16  Crocheters VS Knitters in New Swap Theme Ideas by beth8144 on: September 05, 2012 06:05:35 PM

So I was wondering if there would be any intrest to haveing a swap where a crocheter would be paired with a knitter and visa versa. They would each make something for thier partner. I love to crochet, and cant quite get the hang of the knitting but there are so many adorable knit patterns out there. I know that there are others out there who would love to exchange one for the other. If there is any intrest let me know. If there is intrest I would open up the signups in a week or two with and have sendouts a month after that. Hope there is intrest.

20  Re: 2012 DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by beth8144 on: May 28, 2012 08:23:35 AM
Used up some stash lately,

Used a cross stitch kit, and replaced some of the colors with my embroidery floss stash

Used some other floss for this hoop

Used up some yarn for this crochet Beaker

Not a huge dent, but I hope to sew some stash soon.
