Peg People #2

So this round of Peg People I opted to do most for my Church Festival that is coming up in September.  Our Catholic Daughters of America organization has a craft booth and our Dominican Sisters have a little booth as well. I'll give the religious ones to the Sisters and the rest to the Catholic Daughters.

I'll start with the ones I've done for myself.

This is S. She loves teal and cherry blossoms. And she wants to paint her room just like her little peggie :)

This is H. She loves big bows, pink and sparkly things. And she wears her black skater skirt ALL THE TIME ;) I am now trying to figure out what to do for R. Then I'll work on my husband and myself :) Then I'll have the whole family!

Just a winter one I tried. You can't really tell but it has a sparkly paint over coat.

Got to have a Santa and Mrs. Clause and some pilgrims for the Holidays. Still need to make some Native Americans and other Christmas things.

I really don't know what to call these ladies. I'm not sure I want to keep them for Christmas or what. I do have some Christmas things these colors. I'll have to see how it works.

These will be going to the Catholic Daughter's booth

Again, not sure what to call these littles. I'm useless when it comes to names

I really love the colored hair!! These little girls are about 2 inches

Ninjas!!!! These guys are about 2 1/2 inch.

And my little animals and babies. These guys are about  1 inch.

And now for the ones for the Sister's booth.

Got to have some Sisters for the Sister's booth. I need to find out how many Sisters we have so I can make one for each of them.

Christ in the Eucharist.

St. Nickolas

I did several Nativities. I was trying out different colors of blue for Mary. I don't have a favorite. I like them all :)

 And St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadelupe. These were fun to make. For the little image on St. Juan I just printed out the Blessed Virgins image and modge podged it on. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

Ok, I really can't wait for my new set of peggies to get here!!! So many ideas swirling around in my head.

Peg People

I am addicted to painting peg people. I don't remember where I first saw them. Probably Pinterest! But I ABSOLUTELY love making them.

I first made a set for my niece who is getting married. Then I had to make some for my sister and her husband. So then I had to make one for my mom and dad. And it just snowballed from there.

I just finished a batch for the upcoming church festival in Sept. I have SO many I want to make. My sister keeps telling me I should start hocking them on facebook. Yea, we'll see.

My niece and her fiance'

My other niece and her husband...yes, BIG Clemson Tiger fans

My sister and her husband....had to put the Mickey on the shirt!

My Mom and Dad. I made Mom's outfit just like one she wore to Disney and we kept calling her princess. My Dad is taken from a picture we have of when he was out fishing and he had his big pole while out on a little island getting bait.

I then moved on my the two Priests at our Parish. They turned out really cute. I gave them to their respective copies. I know for sure one of them thought they were really cute.

Next came a couple of different characters I wanted to do for the pre-k 4 classroom at school.

kids in the school uniform

Next I did some for a friends little boys. These are from Paw Patrol. I don't know their names.

And, of course, The Hulk and Captain America

I love these Halloween ones. I just need to find something to do for hats!

I did this Checkov the day after Anton Yelchin passed away. He was a favorite young actor of mine for a long time. 

Each one of these represents my favorite attraction from  each  Disney World park. The Haunted Mansion from Magic Kingdom. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror from Hollywood Studios. The Expedition Everest from Animal Kingdom. And the Tea Caddy( a shop in the England part of the park) from Epcot.

These are just the beginnings :) I have way more to show later. AND I just ordered more peggies the other day. I can't wait to get at it again!!

Ya'll have a wonderful Monday. Me? I'm going to be cleaning. H's birthday is coming up on Wednesday and I have kolaches to get ready for :)

disclaimer : some of these I copied from Pinterest. I may have tweaked them a bit but I generally have to have something to look at before I can do anything!

 Well here I am after a long hiatus. Why was there a hiatus? Don't have a clue. I guess I just wasn't feeling it? I guess I was just living life? Whatever the reason, I'm back now.

So what have I been up to? Well, for awhile there I was real busy with the end of school. This year was a really busy end of year. I did a lot of subbing and helping out with festivities etc.

I have mainly been crocheting and, my new passionate hobby, painting peg people. I have finally finished up my daughter's friends blankets and have moved on to my niece's wedding blanket. Plus, I have started one for my sister to put in her camper. I am also working on one for each of my daughters. They have told me that it's their turn to have blankets :)

I was able to go visit my sister and mom last month. My oldest R was able to come with us. It was a nice little trip. We mainly went shopping at the gazillion Goodwill's in the area. R was able to get about 5 dresses, 2 jeans, a jacket and maybe 7 shirts all for under $50. She was in desperate need of some clothes. She doesn't get to go shopping much. I really didn't think she would want clothes from Goodwill. But she went to town. She had a very good eye and was able to get some high quality things, in great condition. I think H's favorite thing she got was a green alien( from Toy Story) onesie/pajama thingy. It's huge and fluffy and will be warm in the winter :). S was able to get a few Japanese pieces. A couple of Saki cups and some chests with the Asian look to them. She has really become interested in the Japanese culture.

We are in the middle of a hot summer. We aren't really doing much. Just watching some movies and staying out of the heat. I am trying desperately to save some money. I had half of S's graduation trip money saved up when we had to use it for income tax. AARRGGHH. I am hoping that I will be able to get enough saved back up by next June. If I'm good, I think I can do it.
S is volunteering at the local hospital one day a week. She is a lucky girl in the fact that she gets to spend the time with her Great Aunt. My Aunt is the head of the volunteers and was able to put her on her shift :)

So today I will leave you with the pictures of the two graduation blankets and a shot of my peg people.

Ya'll have a great Friday and weekend.

 Each square represents a different Disney character
I tried so hard to crochet a chameleon to go with Rapunzel's tower but I'm just not that talented :)

I really am addicted to painting these right now. This is only about half of what I have and I plan on ordering some more people today :) :)
