Fruits of the Weekend

Once again, I had a fairly productive weekend. I had some swap stuff to get done (although I never got a picture of the mice :( ) and then I made a pin as well :)

First up is going to be a pair of mice I got in the Mouse Swap from the very talented Vivian!


Next is the swap piece I made for Skunkboy's swap:

The girl I got liked more vintage things, so I made them from the wool sweaters, and she also said she liked birds and dogs... so... a white dog with a rainbow bird!

Closeup of the bird:

Dog by itself (the dog also has a wool felted flower pendant and the red ribbon around its neck is removeable):

Next is the pin I made, called Love Bug (go figure):

Finally, something a little random... I collect dolls... not avidly, I don't have a million of them... but I have a few. When I was a child, dolls creeped me out... generally I still don't like them much, but something about a few brands out now don't creep me out at all. In fact, I think they're beautiful. One such doll is the Volks YoSD Chinatsu. For a while, I had quite a lot of Volks YoSDs, but I always loved the Chinatsu best, so much so that I actually have 2 of them... here is a picture of one of them. Maybe you can see why I like her, maybe you can't... I have no problem with people who don't like dolls! But I love taking pictures of them:
