I’m the Doctor

Ellis isn’t actually the Doctor, but she looks like it in this awesome scarf!

Ravelry Blythe Swap goodies!

The Ravelry swap I participated in last month was just as awesome as the other swaps I’ve done recently. My swap gifter sent me a TON of stuff!

Look at all of it! Woot!

I love this little shrug – it’s so cute and it goes with so many of the items in my Blythe closet.

Here’s Ellis, reveling in all the Ravelry goodness with a couple of my gnomes.

Thanks so much, Squishy10!

Secret Sailor!

I participated in another swap recently as part of Virtual BlytheCon. Since the con theme was nautical, this swap was called Secret Sailor, and we all made something for our swap recipient fairly quickly following the nautical theme. I made a sweater for my swap recipient:

Anchors Aweigh Sweater for Blythe

I haven’t done a skinny stripe like that before (that I can recall anyway) and I was really pleased with how the anchor turned out. My recipient liked it!

And I received my package, which was CHOCK FULL of awesomeness. Seriously, my swap gifter went overboard! (haha, *kneeslap*)

goodies from the Secret Sailor Swap

See?! She made TWO dresses, and added in fabric, ribbon, charms, a castaway bottle filled with glitter, and two Blythe-scale swords!

These dresses are SO cute! The one above has a small wrinkle it no doubt got while en route, but I was so excited to take pics that I didn’t take time to iron it first. I love this style – it fastens around the neck and is just a perfect design for summer.

And this one has a very posh ribbon around the neck, and shiny gold stars!

I adore this sword! Isn’t it awesome how she’s all demure and proper with her dress and ribbon and then like, WHA-CHA! Watch out for my sword!

Fun in the Sun!

I just got my swap package from the June Blythe Swap and it is AWESOME! I was so excited that I got paired up with Holly, who I met last summer at Angela‘s Blythe meetup. Holly also has a Boston Terrier, likes skulls, and has probably a bunch of other stuff in common with me.

She put together a picnic package! How cool is that?

Check it totally out! She included a ton of supa cute stuff:

I had noticed this dress in Holly’s photostream recently and admired it greatly, and she totally sent it to me! I love it. I think that I especially like it because I wouldn’t necessarily think to put these two fabrics together, but they work together really well.

And check out these sneakers:

Skully! Totally my fave. Here’s Willow modeling the shoes, hairband, and dress together. And with a cupcake in her pocket!

Thanks mega, Holly!

The July swap sign-up is open right now, and the theme is “Road Trip” – I’m looking forward to it!

Joy!

I participated in a swap on the Knitting for Blythe group on Rav recently, and the person to whom I sent goodies posted pics. She loves the items I made, and I’m so happy she does!

Love these sweaters!

I had noticed that she had a Petite as well as Neo Blythe, so I made matching sets of sweaters and dresses. I love the corduroy skirt her Petite is wearing with the sweater!

Lovely knit sun dresses.

Hooray!

Thanks for being a great swap recipient, Cupcake Snowflake!
