So, Myrdda totally spoiled me!  I nearly dropped the package when I first picked it up because it was so heavy, and then I opened it and  Shocked  There was lots of squeeing.  Lots!

The whole shebang!  (Well, almost, the treasure chest o' chocolates quickly disappeared, but I still have those pretty teas to try!) 

Totem stitch markers, which will hopefully put some good voodoo into my knitting!

Inside of the lovely leather bound cookbook.  Mr. Determined would not model the apron, but it's pretty darn awesome, too.  Love the batik pockets! 

Beautiful owl.  There's a "Z" on the back for Zothea, my character's name.  It's found a home on the mantel.

BABY MURLOC!!!  mgurlyglygurlglhah! I love this guy so much!  I would have been pleased as punch with just him.  Wist him.  You know you want to because he is the best thing ever. 

Love his expression. 

Even his butt is adorable!

Zothea in bean bag form!  She is cute beyond words!  Great details too - her piercings, hair, and don't you just  love her little stubby tusks?  I think she may come live at work with me, and then I can either be lulled by her cuteness when people are mean, or play with her battle axes.   Cheesy

Yay World Explorer tabbard!  I didn't tell Myrdda, but it's my favorite achievement that I've earned and by far the hardest.  (Only died about eleventy billion times exploring Azuremyst and Bloodmyst.)

Scrubs from some of my favorite zones.  They are all pretty heavenly, AND I'm not allergic to any of them!  WIN!

Last, but certainly not least, a magnet.  The painting is amazing; his eyes really seem to glow.  Stay away from the voodoo, mon!

2  Fancy Griptape in Completed Projects by determinedimprovisation on: February 20, 2011 04:54:31 PM
So, Mr. Determined has accumulated quite a few longboards recently.  He got a snazzy one for cheap right after Christmas and decided it needed to be extra pretty.  He designed it; I drew and cut it.  The middle is from some artwork by Alex Grey, the paisley is off the bottom of the board (which is Michael Miller fabric), and the question marks are the board brand's logo.

The bottom.  Pretties!

3  Sev(en) Circle Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by determinedimprovisation on: February 20, 2011 04:46:15 PM
I knit this for my coworker in a secret snowflake gift exchange.  It's a very easy and fast pattern with satisfying results.  I believe this is in Fleece Artist Sea Wool.

I stitched this as a wedding shower/ housewarming gift.  They are both wonderfully geeky and  planning a Mario-themed game room in their first house!

I received from PirateColey on Thursday!

The whole shebang.  Two framed papercuts, a bandanna for Dogmar, dried apricots for Bigwig, bracelet, doggie notepad and photo frame keychain, and awesome card.

I love this!  Featuring Bigwig, (in)famous for stealing pepperoni pizza, and my goldfish, Pebble and Red.  The little details, like Bigwig's blue streaks in his eyes and the goldfish's markings, totally make this.  I'm going to have to find a place to display it as well!

This was at the top of the package, and as soon as I saw it I turned to Dogmar and said "Oh, Pup-pups!  It looks just like you!"  The ears are so awesome.  Dogmar has the best ears, and so does her portrait!  And I think she'll finally be recognized by passers-by as a female.  (Everyone we meet always calls her a boy, even though she has a pink, rhinestone-encrusted collar.) 

I spin on antique wheel, and now I have a lovely silhouette of me and my "helper".  I consider myself pretty skilled with an exacto knife, but dang!  (Excuse the camera flash.  There's not enough light to take a non-blurry pic without.)

Dog-themed charm bracelet.  Notice the bones made out of beads!  I absolutely love the color. 

Bigwig investigates an apricot treat.  I snapped this before he boxed me for it and retreated to his hide box to enjoy.

Dogmar in her new bandanna.  She wagged a lot when I put it on, but decided it was still too cold and rainy to get up.  This is her coy-yet-so-tie-tie face.

Thanks for everything!   Kiss

Here are my goodies from princesspimp81!

For Jello Week, a vintage jello mold and a recipe pouch with cute recipe cards.  I absolutely covet vintage kitchenware. (This will probably end up on my wall!)  I really like the pouch instead of a box.  It works much better in my cabinet.

For Feed the Birds Month, a bird feeder in my favorite colors.  I need to remember to get seed so I can hang it up.

And my favorite, Adopt a Rabbit Month!  Super-cute stampers and amazing bunny hat!  We've beem having unusually warm weather, but I can't wait to wear it.  So warm and snuggly!

Bigwig only disapproved slightly.  In fact, he disapproved of me less than normal and let me snuggle him.

But wait!  There's more!  A bonus pancake/egg shaper (I've secretly been wanting one!) and a macrame jewelry kit, which is the kind of kitchy jet fabulous thing I love.

I received from skaborsk over the weekend!

Tons of fabric!  When I asked for fabric, I was thinking of upholstering my craft chair, but I think this needs to be made into adorable stuffies.

Bonus owl embroidery!  And in my favorite colors too.  I'm kind of inlove with it.

Thank you!  Kiss

I made a jacket for my pit mix last year using McCall's 4686, view C, minus the hood (she'd try to eat it).  The pattern doesn't have sleeves, but I drafted some after the body was sewn.  It was pretty easy, and I've never drafted anything before.  Just make sure the sleeves end above her dew claw.  The chest fit her just fine, but I had to lengthen the butt-flap.  Also, the chest was really open and I think it would be even with the hood, so I added some elastic cord.
I did like soonersunshine suggested and made a large button hole on the back for the leash to clip onto her harness.

Aw, so stylish!

If you want a little more security at the closures, you can add a plastic buckle on a bit of webbing, like this:

(That's my rabbit's harness.  He wishes it wasn't rainbow teddy bears, but alas.)

It's still completely adjustable, and won't irritate his skin.

Two weeks since my first purchase and I've got two more.  They're a little addictive.

First up, Singer Model 27, born April 24, 1906. 

The wood, uh, needs some help.  I do have the 4 drawers though.

I luuurve this faceplate.

Attachments!  I'm excited about all the hemming feet.

Second, a Minnesota Model A, which will be going to a good friend of mine.

The original owner burned the drawers.  Shocked

I can't figure out how the head is supposed to stay out of the cabinet.  You can pull it out and it slides up easily, but there is nothing to keep it up.  The wood in front of the machine is attached to it and slides up and down with it.  There is a wheel at the back edge of the hole in the cabinet and a broken chain attached to the leaf...might it have come up when you opened it?

I found this rolling around inside the cabinet.  This thing goes inside the shuttle, right?
