yard sale score, I went to a yard sale operated by a man. His neighbors had given him a box of fabric. There was 3 or 4 large pieces of what looks and feels like alova in a very soft creamy color. (edited to add: It is about maybe 10 yards) I offered him $1 and he took it. I bought a square tin about 8" filled with colored pencils and a cut girl on the top, "She who laughs last," for $1. Got a nice travel case for $1, 9 ties for $1,and a whole box of christmas ornaments with give away on the box, and asked the guys does that mean free, yes, and it was free. I also bought a beautiful paris round box that is gorgeous for $1. My mom sent me some money so I had to do a little yard saling.



I have plenty of alova, or soft fabric now. Swap?

Just bargain. "Would you take XXX for this? if they say yes, sold, if they ask for more, I say "no thank you" or "good luck with that" and walk away.

The box of Christmas stuff had give away written on the box, so I asked it was free. I offered $1 for the paris box, the $2 luggage for $1 and all that alova for $1. I just ask. I prefer church sales, estate sales for crafting stuff.

Crappy cell phone picture, but ...



I think the discussion at work is back to am I creative or just insane, because I never have "normal" answers when they ask me what I'm making. Told them it was a doll, a poppet specifially, and when asked why it has a tail ... "Because it goes with the ears. Ears like this seem kind of silly without the tail."

And my project for the weekend - clothing for the poppet

My answer is a bit more detailed. It's a jointed nekomimi doll. The style is popular in japan. Neko means cat mimi means girl. Thus cat girl. She has ears, a tail, and paws rather than hands.
Smiley People are always like !OH! I can see the lightbulb go on when I explain it like that. My mom and grandma are even telling people about my catgirl dolls! lol

She;s looking great so far!

Thanks! And I just realized I did the joints wrong, so ... first project, take apart and redo the shoulder/hips. THEN the clothes.

Yeah, I'd lose them at the word nekomimi. Unfortunately, I work with a bunch of ... I guess the best word is mundanes? (since normal is so subjective) They're wonderful people, but me reading vampire stories is odd, and the fact that I understand quite a bit of gamer speak stuns them.

DragonessD- looking great so far!  Also, you sound awesome.  And I can relate.  People in my church group would always think I was weird because I took my knitting everywhere, played video games, and *gasp!* read Dracula of my own free will.

I know exactly what you mean. The mundanes are really clueless about un-mundane things. Speaking of mundanes I'm finally going to get the last book of The Mortal Instruments trilogy tomorrow!
