This weekend we moved D#1 back to college. She has an apartment on campus now and loves it. She will share the apartment with 3 other girls. Two of the girls she roomed with last year and they were real good friends before college. They are such sweet girls. They now have their own washer/dryer, stove, fridge/freezer, living room and finally their own bathroom. I will try to get her to post some pictures of it on her blog A Tale of Two Cities.
D#2 loves Christmas Elves. Loves them so much, in fact, she carried one around with her in her pocket last year. Of course I forgot to check her pockets when I washed her pants. This little Elf didn't fair so well. I believe he was stuffed with some sort of paper and the felt kind of disintegrated. D#2 was very sad. So, Elfie laid in my craft room for about 9 months. Finally I took pity on him and tackled this project.
Above: Sad Elfie with his tattered and mangled clothes, but he still has a smile on his face :)
Above: Elfie all decked out in his new get up! This project actually turned out better than I thought it would. I added pom poms and a pipe cleaner (as fake fur on his hat). Good as new!
Above: Little chick with real feather for a tail. I can't believe how sweet this turned out. I plan on making more soon. They do look sweet just by themselves. Kind of like an ornament. I need to make a red one for Christmas. Vintage pipe cleaners are turned into legs and feet. I need to get some vintage sheet music for hats. This music is just a black and white copy.
Above: Terrier planter. I thought he needed a little something extra. Gingham bow to the rescue.
I have joined flickr and plan on uploading a lot more pictures. My flickr name is pip141 (of course pip is our little dog). Hopefully I can figure out how to put a link to my flickr account on the sidebar of this blog and then you won't have to go to flickr and try to find me.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend,
