I bought the notepad, covered it with fabric to hide the printing on it. Then I tatted this SO CUTE little koala and glued him on. Sweet! I had never tried this pattern before, though I have had it for YEARS!. It is one from Christel Weidemann's collections .. and so in German. I had a little problem with the head and ear section, but I 'made it work'.. the rest was a piece of German chocolate cake. haha.. Check out the other things I have made my swap partners on my other blog, dog-gone knit.
I love her patterns, now I guess I will have to make some more of them!
The Fair..I think I am ready. I am entering Dolcé in the 'tatting' section, Danté in the free choice, and my Charlie in the box ornament in the Christmas ornaments. In other categories, a crocheted item in the Seasonal, Crocheted item in the toys, Knitted bag in the purse section, a fairy garden(made with all handcrafted from fimo flowers, fairy, mandrake.. etc, in the crafts, and three photos. I would have entered more photos, but they have a new rule this year that photos must be mounted on a 16x20" foam core board! Wow. I wasn't going to spend much $$$ to enter photos, plus have to lug the huge things everywhere.
I have to go enter my items this Thurs or Fri...and then find out how they did on Sunday afternoon. Wish me luck!
