Thanks, FreakieGeekie, I had no idea what they were, I'd never seen them before (but I honestly don't spend much time in the toy aisle, so...).  The dark hair works for this project, but I was hoping to find some more for another (and I'll need at least one blonde and one blonde/red) and now I know what to search for!  Cheesy

I haven't started work yet (zombie walk tomorrow, haven't even STARTED my costume) but I have lots of ideas in my head... how well they'll work, well, we'll see!

I buy those dolls when ever I see them at a thrift.  Not only are the joints nice, they have different skin tones and eye colors.  I've been wondering what they were FG, so thanks for that info.

And for 8 bucks you can have those ginghers pro sharpened.

I do mine every few years and they have always come back safe and sound.

Fabulous to meet IRL! Smiley Don't think I have anyone close to me for a quick day trip... Wink

Now a question for my fellow Silhouette owners/users ...

Preferred medium for T'shirts .... Stencil & paint or iron on?

Have to whip up 2 T's for my girls for Halloween ... and have neither fabric paint nor iron on fabric in the house, i.e. will have to order ASAP!! Shocked

My favorite is freezer paper and paint. I love how they turn out and I also love how inexpensive freezer paper is Smiley

I'm a little late for this, but I love the freezer paper cut with the Silhouette, and then painted with Tulip soft fabric paints. For less detailed cuts, I've also used Contact paper (I've read that you can put a cloth over it and give it a light iron to help it stick better). I've had VERY mixed results with the iron on vinyl. Sometimes, it goes on like a dream, other times, it's a very expensive nightmare!

And, I love checking out thrift store craft supplies! The only downside is that sometimes they have a funky smell Smiley I've made a couple of decent scores at yard sales, but nothing lately because I haven't been going!

Petit point poppy practice:



I gave up on patterns; I just can't work that way.  I'll just measure off my artwork and kind of wing it, I think.  And I'm not going to worry that much about the back of the piece - if I sometimes accidentally do half cross-stitch instead of continental stitch, most likely nobody will know but me.  Roll Eyes

I only started frequenting the toy aisle when the Monster High dolls started coming out. I bought a Liv doll for my sister a few years ago because she wanted to use it as a drawing reference.
You're in luck, Smeddley! There are a couple different blonde wigs and at least one strawberry blonde one. I remember from looking at the extra wigs and stuff in the store back when. Also, I think my sister's came with strawberry hair. I'm not too sure though Tongue
Their lovely eyes are acrylic, much like the Japanese ball-jointed dolls have. But unlike the Japanese BJDs the eyes aren't removable/changeable.

That petit point is beautiful, Ludi! Shocked

Thanks.  Smiley  I think I'll be going with the lower right design, the one above looks too much like a rose and the other one doesn't have enough contrast in the colors.  I hope to start on the real thing this coming week.  I have a feeling this project will take a few months...  Tongue

But, while I haven't really crafted much lately, I have made a bit of progress on my Research Project. In my habit of not working on the important things until I absolutely have to, instead of working on making the house presentable for the delivery of my freezer (which I did eventually do, but not until the night before and morning of), I worked on assembling a second metal shelving unit in my kitchen.

I emptied out two tall, narrow book shelves and part of a cabinet. Almost everything went into bins on the metal shelves, and one of the book shelves is now home to some of the cabinet contents {it holds infrequently used kitchen items- trifle bowl, apple peeler/corer/slicer, cookie cutters, shredding attachments for mixer, etc.}. I ran out of plastic bins, but I'll be emptying the rest of the cabinet to turn it into my canning cabinet.

But, here's the shelving unit, loaded up with pantry supplies and some cooking utensils and implements:



Once I sort out my kitchen cart and its contents, I might have a bit more room on the shelves (the glass jars holding coffee, flour, and sugar will go on the cart). I also have a bit more room on the top shelf. I need to see if I have more bins in the house I can repurpose (I have some, but they may be too big). I also need to start doing a bit of baking... The bin on the bottom right is full of baking mixes...I need to use them up so I can have that space for something else Smiley

Is it ok to use a collaborative project as a Nerdalong craft?  With my husband I'm making a really huge monster costume, which he will wear this coming weekend in the neighbors' Haunted Hike.  I'm doing most of the sewing on the costume and would love to use it for my Battle project, but not if it doesn't qualify....

inquiring mind wants to know.... Huh

It think it would, Ludi. Badwolf and her hubby did a couple amazing projects together if I remember right.

Work continues on my research project. It was time to break out the paints for an accessory:
