1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / Re: Hoopla A-Long 2013-2014 on: July 25, 2014 07:39:54 PM
There is 1 week left of July. I think I need to make my design a reality AND a priority. How about after I'm done picking this fleece (about an hour left) I make my food themed hoop the top of my list? I need to make this. I need some "me" time.

Very cool. Nice technique, too. So personal! The print really does look a lot like the dog in question. You sent the stamp to her as well, right?
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Preserving strawberries 3 ways on: July 22, 2014 03:00:46 PM
We got an ice cream maker attachment for our KitchenAid stand mixer that rocks! It usually come out really soft but is really good after being in the freezer for a couple hours. I've been using the Ben and Jerry's ice cream book, too.

I ordered 16 lbs of blueberries, 18 lbs of cherries, and 25 lbs of peaches to be picked up this Saturday (I'm telling you Americans, bountifulbaskets.or g is amazing!) so I think as long as I can find some good, cheap jars I will be set for canning the whole next week. I've been using my stock pot to can but my MIL said her g'ma's canner is up for grabs, just need a new gasket so I think that would make canning with the kids even more exciting. I seem to have abducted your thread, I'm sorry. I'll make my own post next week I promise! I'm just so excited.

Hurray for an official start to the gallery! WOOHOO! Those are all very nicely done, as per par with Dessadoll. The different colors schemes of each owl makes a nice touch. I think my favorite bookmark is the tea one, even though I don't drink tea. It's very clever. Good job, lady!

Oh my word, I just tried canning this year for the first time, too! Using the same book! Sweet. It must be a sign. We got some cheap strawberries from the Bountiful Baskets co-op (bountifulbaskets.or g, check it out friends!) and I made the jam twice (gave me about 9 pints) and I also made strawberry ice cream, which I think was the best way to preserve them Wink, thought it didn't really last long enough to count as preserving I don't think. I'm really glad the lemonade concentrate recipe is good. I was worried about it. Next time I get berries I'm totally making it now as per your recommendation. Thanks for the reviews!

I don't think the head is too big at all. She looks like she is sleepily getting ready to emerge from her cocoon and spread her beautiful spider-fly wings to go add beauty to the night. Love it!

Your stitching is so good. This design is awesome. Love it!

I knew who it was just from the thumbnail so I think you did a darn good job. Awesome!

Yeah, not everyone discussing postage right now is in the US so not all the same rules apply, I think. If you don't get tracking, it's always nice to offer a receipt from the PO though. And ALWAYS keep your receipt either way.

I see Dessadoll has Pinned some Monkeys and it's tempting to jump in and claim her for them but I think I need to see how market goes tomorrow first. Someone told me last week that she thought my monkeys were "creepy" and that was a little disheartening.

This is really quite rad. Unbelievable that it's your first time!

Thanks! It wasn't my first time felting in general, but I have always done needle felting since discovering the craft. Wet felting is way more intimidating.
Really? I've always been more intimidated by the needles. Wet felting is more of a 'let it make itself" craft for me because you never really know how it will turn out. Well, the way I do it. AND it can be really messy with soap! Our different perspectives on it amuse me.
