The Toy Society

This is something similar to Book Crossing only instead of books, you use stuffies. The owner of this blog is trying to get more people involved and will soon expand this idea to other areas. We are in different countries, so I am not involved personally yet, but I really think this sounds like an awesome idea. This button will be in my side bar all the time for anyone else that is interested. Check it out!

Cross Stitch

Here are 2 cross stitch flowers I did awhile ago. They both came in little kits with all the thread and everything needed to complete the projects. They are my first cross stitch projects. I have a new little kit (of a cat) to work on next.

Purple Parrot

I can't believe I forgot to post this. I made this for a "Friend of Craftster" raffle swap. It was so much fun and this bird actually went to a girl with a friend that trains birds, so it was perfect.

This is what I got from the swap-a beautiful crocheted shawl.

Mended Puppy with New Friend

I've had this little white puppy plush forever. Even after my dog ate off one of the eyeballs, I just couldn't get rid of it. Finally, it hit me-just add new eyeballs. The new eyes are much bigger than the old eyes, but it's still cute. While I had the white puppy apart I decided to try and make a new one based on the shape of the white one. I had some socks that had worn out so they became a new puppy. OK, enough blabbing, onto the pictures.

Newbies Swap Goods

I can't believe I forgot to post when I got the goods from my totally awesome swap angel. She really thought about what I would want and then, she sent really quickly. I was very lucky to get such a great swap angel when my original partner flaked.

Newbies Only Swap - My 1st Swap

I participated in my 1st swap on Craftster and unfortunately, it didn't really go too well. My partner and I didn't communicate much, but I just figured it was due to us working on our stuff to send each other. I know my skills aren't fantastic, but I worked really hard on everything I sent her and I spent way longer than the guidelines suggest (because I'm so slow). Still-it looks like she got my package, but is not going to be sending me one (what Craftster calls a flaker). I had a feeling this might happen from the get-go, but I didn't want to let it ruin my experience. I ended up having a GREAT idea as to what to make my partner and I really hoped she liked what I made, even if I don't get to hear it from her. I like what I made, so I guess that is what counts. Here are the many pictures of everything.

Purple Dress for Poppet

This is the dress I made for W's poppet. Since I'm going to be seeing this evening, I decided it was high time to make the doll some clothes!
