scenes from the craft room

We're gripped in end of school frenzy over here, as I imagine most everyone is. I've popped in to say that I sent an email out to the mailing list but it did not send. Another computer dilemma needing to be fixed. Love those. Anyhoo, the news of the day… there is another batch of Super X-Stitchettes in the shop.

other projects cooking in here:

phoebe's 3rd birthday

more sewing for the birthday girl

animation coming along awesomely

and part of a super great swap with the queen of cross stitch, jen. aren't these amazing!!

we were reminiscing about the good old days and how much fun swaps were. it reminded me I have an old flickr set of swap goodness. so many of these cool things are craft room staples now, my favorite pincushions, my sewing gadget basket, all that fabric! sigh. makes me so nostalgic for those early days. especially this little guy!

    My friend had that Barbie townhouse, and we used to put our Barbies in that elevator, yank the cord, and let Barbie fly. Don’t think that’s what Mattel had in mind. Thanks for bringing back those questionable memories!

    OMG!!! I loved my Barbie Townhouse! played with it for years. I wish I still had it. I’m sure my mom sold it in a garage sale!

    I had the same Barbie townhouse, too – but I did NOT like it. Sorry!! The elevator string was weak! The plastic columns sucked! Bah!! Press-board piece of junk, it fell apart and eventually was looked like the projects instead of a condo 😛

    How funny. I just bought a barbie townhouse in wood, complete with elevator, from my neighbour on the weekend at their garage sale. $30 complete with 5 barbies and a huge box full of clothes. They dusted their hands off and said “it’s all yours now”. laughing as they went. My three daughters love it.

    I had that Barbie townhouse! When my parents would drag me along to the Home Depot equivalent in our town I would steal the wallpaper samples and tape the on the walls.

    I had that townhouse… and have it again, all set up in my basement! Ah, the joys of ebay and a sister who knows what I like! :o) Good times, I tell ya. My favorite room was always the living room, with the cheetah (leopard?)….

    I love the teeny little cross-stitch ornaments! I’m working on a fairly large cross-stitch piece on a far-too-large piece of fabric, and this gives me an excellent idea of what to do with all the scraps around the edges once I finish … although that fabric is quite a bit nicer (and smaller) than the 18 count I’m using.
