Hey! That's a FAIRY! Not a Pebble!

Uh... no.  Not a pebble.  On the other hand, since Miss Fairy and the Alien amigurumis are but two of the things that have been KEEPING me from the Curious Pebble Project (not to mention Making Christmas Happen), I figured I might as well blog about them.  Besides.  They are seriously too cute not to share with the (insert sarcasm here...) utter scads of followers that I have. 

Meet Miss Fairy.  She was kinda-sorta-supposeta be modeled after a Certain Fairy that three year old girls are fond of...

I ask you... What's not to love????  Look at those 'lil fairy ears!

As it turns out, though, the three year old for whom Miss Fairy was intended, and who LOVES that Certain Fairy, does NOT love this one.  Alas.  Sigh.  Of course.  Should have known.

In fact, her immediate reaction on Christmas Morning was (and I quote), "I Don't Like Her. No."

It's easy to say that next time I won't spend spend HOURS creating something out of thin air... But I will.  I know I will.  In fact, I've made dolls for Miss Thing before... The first time, I begged my mother to scan and email a 1970's pattern for a doll that MY mother made for ME.  I sewed and made the tiniest stitches I've ever made.... and.... She didn't like it.  That doll is currently collecting dust on the top shelf of the three-year-old's bookcase as I type.  Maybe someday....

But, I'm hoping that SOMEONE out there will appreciate Miss Fairy.  Right?  Yeah?  Maybe?
  
Wings made of Stainless Steel TIG Welding Wire (Hey... it's what I had... ), and free-form crocheted.  I'm kinda proud f them....

I even made her some bobble-stitch knees and elbows...



The GOOD news is that Alien (who has yet to be named, but I'm sure my 8 year-old will come up with something either completely bizarre and made up, or ridiculously mundane and simple, like, "Green" or "Alien"), was loved immediately and declared the awesomest thing.  So, Phew.  Score one for Mommy.  And, the kid has good taste - I kinda like him as well: 

Pipe Cleaners on the inside of the eye stems make for really googly Alien fun.

Hey!  There's an Alien in my bed!!!

Regardless of whether or not they are loved by their intended child... Miss Fairy and Alien seem to like each other and are currently hanging out on the piano singing Christmas Carols. 

Oh... why not?


(Admittedly, the Alien plays piano a little better than she does, but don't tell her I said that.)
