I needed something for the Asheville Adventure white elephant gift exchange & thought this project would be fun.


So many things happened over the weekend that my memory is a blur, I think craftADDchick ended up with it.

Very Big Jen has a step-by-step photo tutorial on flickr. I've made them before but like usual I do it my own way.
The bottle cap I used fit these heavy metal washers which help weight it down so pulling pins out is easier.


I tried to mimic Jen's intricate iris stitching, it's pretty darn challenging to get things even at that size, wow.


Looks so weird without lashes!


I don't know what it is I find so appealing about eyeballs, they are just so neat-o.

That turned out super fun and weird! Just right.

I have had some fun semi-stalking that Asheville Adventure the last few months. I'm pretty jealous.

Don't be jelly, invite us to your neck of the woods! We've all proven we're willing to travel, I bet it's nice where you live. If you can't get away we'll come to you Smiley.

Now there's an idea! It's not that I can't get away, it's that this year I'm getting away to Ireland! And I'm in cahoots to meet EdelC while I'm there! But now I am going to keep my ear to the ground and my eyes peeled for a good option for accommodations for a group. Hmmmmm.

Yes!  Hawai'i Summer of 2020.  Mountains and Clouds who lives on Oahu will be helping me plan this one.  It will be epic!
