Haven't been here for a while now

i had a very cute baby boy and drifted away from here :) sorry
Now he is a bit older and I feel like I can return to my crafting ways.
I am not really interested in making more tsumami kanzashi anymore. I think I burned myself out a bit. my sister got me a doll as a gift and I started to see for them and create for them. I might share more of that in future but today I wanted to share a shirt review of some of the cheaper shoes you can get for playscale/Barbie sized dolls. My doll is a J-doll and she has a type 3 body. Half of the cheap (40 shoes for 5 dollars) don't fit her. I don't blame the seller because they stated these shoes are for Barbie and I understand JDoll and Barbie do not have same size feet.
JDoll is kind of easy to balance. Because even with the softest shoe she can stand for a few seconds :)
All the shoes in this package are below.  I didn't take the photos of th ones that didn't fit.
For some reason blogger is giving me trouble. The top half of the shoes don't fit the bottom half fit ok.
For individual photo please visit my Flickr account :)

Used my japanese nuigurumi book

Used my japanese nuigurumi book, originally uploaded by offgenemi.

I really love this book
i made a lot of animals from this book; the smaller version of the pig on the cover., the big elephant, a small sheep and now the whale :)
the whale is about 1 yard (~1 meter) long. I am sure he wont be able to play with it for a few years but still i am ready :) when he is ready , we'll have the whale for him :D

we are closing the shop

tomorrow morning I will sit down and close our Etsy shop with one click :)
DH is preparing the packages diligently as usual. They will be at the PO tomorrow on their way to their rightful owners. I wanted to give something extra to each customer who came back on our last day on Etsy so I added one or two extras to each package. I felt like Santa Claus :)
then I couldn't stop there and prepared two more packages for friends. Tomorrow i will pack most of the left overs and give them to local charities. Then we are packing our house and moving!
wish us good luck!

Chenille blanket

Chenille blanket, originally uploaded by offgenemi.

it is time for nesting!!!!
I found this tutorial
and I just had to make one. it was really a lot of fun :) The top fabric is from nani iro. it is a thin cotton fabric so it is very soft the bottom layers are all flannel. the blanket kind of feels like a towel :) and now my husband wants one :)
I used regular scissors to cut the bottom 3 layers, it took some time but it's worth it
hope you have fun making one, too
