atc's and dolls

Today was our monthly CQTeers meeting and, as usual, we exchanged atcs.  This month our theme was 'Beads or Buttons'.  Below are the ones I received in our trade...

Irene did the one on the upper left and Sue did the one on the bottom which is actually a needlecase which came complete with buttons, thread, needle AND a bandaid (was she trying to tell us something?).  The one on the upper right was from the challenge we had last month using foil and was also made by Sue.

Below is what I made for the trade, including a couple of crocheted bookmarks which incorporated beads too.

This time we met at Irene's house and we had a number of sweet little 'visitors' - unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me so I couldn't take a photo of them all but this sweet little lady came home to live with me....

Isn't she sweet? 
She has a definite snooty attitude!

Thank you Irene!!


  1. What fun! I like your 'snooty lady'.

    Thanks for the visit, yes Mr. Ryder is playing it up and looking as pathetic as possible. Can't believe we have 5 more days of this. Loving your small button flower pieces, sweet. xox

  3. Just to add the "snooty lady" is from a free pattern by Judy Skeel "Lucky Penny Doll Pin". Fun to make.

  4. Snooty? no..........surely not lol

  5. she's not snooty, just trying desperately to hold herself together with this new blogger format. a gentle delicate soul.


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
