21  Mary Jane! in Crochet: Completed Projects by javastain on: October 22, 2006 03:08:39 PM
I am working on some slippers for a personal swap (Hi Selise!)... and I tried a couple of patterns before I just decided to wing it and do my own... Check them out, I have not fashioned a button yet, and they are a bit small for my foot (Selise has a smaller foot than me!). Oh, and I have not done the left one yet...Please excuse the terribly hairy legs Smiley, it's pants weather here now!

On it's side...

And modeled by King Kong  Shocked ....

Thanks for looking. I plan on making more for Christmas this year... I'd love to hear what y'all think! Thanks!

Ooo!!  I love that spider!
Thanks everyone! I can't wait for you all to see some of the others... I did some not-so realistic colors too! I loved making these little buggers... except, I did have one sent back for more postage! DANG IT! Muria has to wait a little while longer, but I sent it out tonight, PRIORITY! It should get there Monday... maybe before some of the others!?!

I got my T-shirt and Felt bead kit a few days ago and took the pics and forgot to post them so... here you go!!!
My Falling leaf t-shirt from sneeg modled by my kitchen chair...

Here's Caca... she doesn't think she's a Rottweiller, she thinks she can kick any Rottie's butt!!! ALthough she gets to spar with our Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Jack, he's a big pussy cat... I can't get him to take a picture for me though, he keeps getting distracted and I end up with a shot of the side of his neck! Anyway, here she is in all her glory.....

Alright, here they are, just a little teaser of the fruits and veggies I am working on!

Lemons, cherries, bananas, eggplant, tangerine, tomatoes, pears, and oh, yes, that is a mushroom! I also have apples (green or red), carrots, limes, and am working on figuring out artichokes and a few other fav's!
FYI~ I have stuffed everything, in true javastain style, with recycled plastic grocery bags! They are completely washing machine safe, soft and they really don't make any crinkly noise!!!

Here's some action shots of some of the goodies that were in our big box from Jnaos! I can't get over how cool that cradle is! I think you did
a SUPER job being it was your FIRST PROJECT with your new tools! Hope number 2 is a girl so you have an excuse to make another!
Colin loves his race car hat except I can't keep him still long enough to get a clear picture... I think I'm going to have to round up all the goodies and take a still shot while the kids are napping! And the 'urgency' vehicles... he loves that the doors  open and close (these are the first cars he has with that feature! That's all I hear, the doors snapping shut and open!

I watch my neighbor's kids twice a week for a couple of hours (two girls, the red head=4 1/2 YO, and the dark brown head 3 1/2 YO) and Ellie who just turned 3 and the girls ABSOLUTELY LOVE the paper dolls! Notice they can't chose between the dolls and the cradle! And Colin loves the dolls too!

This one is the toy with two blocks, where you match the images that create a vehicle and then it makes the noise! If you ever have a chance to buy toys by 'Melissa and Doug' toy company don't hesitate! We have a couple of their toys, all made of wood (but I am not sure if that's all they do) and they are great! This one is no exception! Colin and Ellie both love it! Colin is nuts for machines, race cars, backhoes whatever! He can make the different noises and now he has a toy that does it with him!!!
Thanks again Jnaos! Can't wait for you to get your package!
Edited for spelling!

I have been trying to upload my photos the only one I could get to go right was a close up of the Goo and Mac clock... I will get actions shots of the kids in the cute shirts from irid3sc3nt when I figure out why my pics won't upload...

Anyway, here's the clock... I am making another one for my daughter's room (it'll be different but I will use the same process!). I love this clock!

29  Re: Love Jesus Swap Round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by javastain on: April 30, 2006 11:38:46 PM
Hey all here's what I crafted up for freegranny... filet crochet 'Jesus' wall hanging with frame (that broke Sad during shipping)... framed in a silver frame with a silver and gold background and Gal 6:9 'and let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.' !

Of course I fretted and fretted over the frame with the glass, and of course it broke so I hope that freegranny can get it re-framed and that it won't cost too much! I almost ordered a frame on line and had it shipped to her place, but I really liked this frame and I didn't want her to have to put together her own swap package!!! Well I learned a lot with this swap! I'll have to find a better way to ship glass!!!

OK, so I received like weeks ago... I have no excuse except that the picture hosting things is a daunting task for me... I get so lost in the computer sometimes, anything I need, I have to save on my desktop, otherwise I can't find it again, and of course I lost the photos... I am so glad I married a computer nerd...
So here's the booty I received from Arabella....

Recycled junk mail hand made paper,  embroidery kit (embroidery patterns from sublime stitching, needles, thread and a loop), water colors, tote with hand made earth day patch, recycled yarn pulled from a thrift store sweater....

embroidery kit;

junk mail paper check out the stars...


Ok, I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything... I want to post more pictures... I will get better close ups! Thanks ARABELLA!!!!
