1  Get yer gnome on! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Nola_76 on: March 05, 2011 08:05:53 PM
I will admit it right up front; I collect cabbage patch dolls   Grin  Not the plastic one that were really big in the 80's mind you, but the soft sculpture ones that Xavier Roberts started making in the late 70's on up to today! I belong to a few collector's groups, and a good friend of mine in WI who also collects, *really* wanted a gnome outfit for her "preemie" sized cabbie named Oliver! One bonus about the preemies is that they are the same size as those Mass Market kids of the 80's, so I was able to use some of the MM patterns I had kicking around to at least give me a base to start with -- the only thing i ended up using was a pattern for pants, and the rest I ended up kinda winging, LOL! This is what I ended up with:

She was thrilled with it, as was Oliver I am told, LOL!

Thanks for taking a peek!

2  Christmas Stockings ~ Cross-stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Nola_76 on: December 13, 2010 04:57:14 PM
Hi all! I am a newcomer to the board, but have been crafting for years. I started cross-stitching in 1997 and have since learned a little sewing and crochet over the years   Smiley  I used to marvel over the gorgeous Christmas stockings that my Grandma made when I was younger, and now that I have little ones around, I wanted to attempt a few of my own! So I started with my niece and nephew's:

The cross-stitches probably took me about 6 months total, (I can only work in the evenings after my little one goes to bed   Wink), I did the padding, lining and backing in an evening, and then finished off the embellishments over the next week. There are a couple things I will do differently when I do my daughter's for next year, but overall I am pretty happy with how they turned out. Now here's hoping the kids like them, LOL!

Thanks for taking a peek!

3  Nativity Set - Just in time for the Holidays! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Nola_76 on: December 13, 2010 03:09:07 PM
I haven't been crocheting for very long, and I am a dope, I forgot to take pics of my first couple projects before I sent them off as Christmas gifts   Undecided, but I remembered this time, LOL! My MIL collects Nativity Scenes, and it's so hard to find one that is different from what she already has, so this seemed like the perfect solution! It's a pattern from Gourmet Crochet, but I changed up the colors quite a bit, and used safety eyes instead of embroidering  Smiley  

Thanks for taking a peek, I am loving looking at all the beautiful things on this board that all the talented members are making!!!
