I laughed and laughed over those items because they were so much fun. I think my husband thought the idea of a swap with someone you don't know was a weird idea ("What happens if they don't send you anything?") but he liked the Kermit bag too. He knows I love those reusable bags. I've got them all over the house, garage and in my truck. In fact, he's started buying them for me when he gets sent somewhere for work. Smiley

As if the other hats I've made for myself in the past don't show what I giant geek I am. But no, I went and made myself a TARDIS beret. I used Cathy Wood's beret pattern from Ravelry at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/beret-with-a-simple-cross-stitch-free-pattern for the overall hat design and just winged the details as I went.

It's made with Lion Brand blue of some sort, glow in the dark yellow (for the top where the light was), white and black, on an H sized hook. If it actually got colder out here, this would be an excellent hat for the winter. It's snug around the ears and has plenty of room up top for my hair,which is nice because if I have my hair in a pony tail, then it would still fit comfortably.

Whoo hooo! I received my swap package last night from IHeartsTheArts! It arrived last night. I'm loving my goodies! Thank you thank you thank you!

Too funny! I mentioned that I really liked Ernie, although he was a part of "Sesame Street" and I always preferred "The Muppet Show,"  Gretchen sent this activity book and crayons. (Love that round orange head!) I should break this out at work sometime and see what kind of reaction I get. Smiley

Googley eyes! What an awesome idea! These bad boys are going to bet a lot of use! I never even thought about buying them before, and every great Muppet has to have good eyes (a la Cookie Monster). And two Pez dispensers: Yoda and R2-D2 (There were multiple puppets in the Star Wars Trilogy, but Yoda was the only one Jim Henson was involved with).

Now, they guard my desk at work when I'm not around. The candy was quite nice too. Smiley

A great appliqued Kermit reusable bag!!! I love this!!!!

And the best for last: a Shrinky Dink bracelet of Beaker, Professor Bunson Honeydew, Gonzo, Janice, Miss Piggy, Kermit and Animal! The colors are so great and bright! Gretchen got a lot of detail in this bracelet. I wore it to work today to show it off.

I sent out IHeartstheArts' package today. I hope she enjoys her's as much as I enjoyed mine.

I got the form at Michael's. I think it's some kind MDF-type board and it's actually flat instead of rounded like your wreath. I purposely bought a cheap form (I think it was $2.99 or so) because I've never crocheted around anything and if it didn't work out, then I didn't want to be out much for this project. Smiley Plus, the flat form made it easier to attach my stuff to. And I just used a glue gun for all of that stuff.

I finally got around to finishing my version of this wreath. I didn't get it done in time for fall this year, but at least I'll have it for next fall.

I think the inside of the wreath is about 8" across. I used Red Heart Super Saver orange and Marrakesh (#0947). The pine cones were picked up while I was walking my dog one night. The feathers were decorative picks from Michael's (where the wreath form came from), and the little bow and green leaves were leftover from my stash. In the picture (from my cell phone because my camera battery was charging), it looks like the feathers are black. They aren't. They are actually deep purple.

Awesome idea!!!!

Did anyone see Miss Piggy on the Tonight Show on Friday night? I'm not a Jay Leno fan but I walked into my husband's computer room and he was watching Jay interview Mickey Rourke and Piggy was sitting next to him! Smiley I love the fact that Piggy got the first interview slot. Anyway, the whole ep is on Hulu for anyone that wants to see it. Miss Piggy was hysterical. Smiley

And my husband surprised me with a new sewing machine tonight (I was expecting it for Christmas), and I already managed to get a couple of smalls knocked out that I was planning on muddling through by hand. Smiley
