Done yesterday and packed to mail, but couldn't get to the P.O. today, so it'll be out on deadline tomorrow.

Okay, nearly done. I would be ready to send in the morning, except that I've decided to add a little something, and it's not quite done yet. Worth the wait, though.

I quite like what I've done for this swap, although it isn't really what I imagined when I started. I had hoped that my free Spoonflower fabric sample would arrive in time to use it, but I gave up on that this week. And I was trying an image transfer technique that I didn't have any spare material to test on, so of course it didn't work out the way I'd intended. But the flaws in the image kind of inspired the rest of the piece, so it turned out for the best.

I thought that was marvelous even before I realized it was a real book! That just raised it even higher in my estimation. The recipe for "Ghetto White Russian" is great!

Sorry I've dropped off the thread for a week or so. I got busy, and after a few days I didn't want to log in because there would be so many unread messages waiting, and then I got a brilliant idea and got started on it, and now I think I've ruined the one irreplaceable part of it, and now my beard's on fire...oh, oh! Tongue

(we need a sleepy smiley icon added to our choices)

I agree! Are you listening, Craftster?

I didn't know about AFK either. Because of the drinks and cabana boys, I thought it was some tropical island. but perhaps that's just an ordinary day at Casa Smmarrt.

Cocktails equipment update: new shaker arrived yesterday. Tonight's test rating:85%. Doesn't seem to smash up the ice as well as my classic model (I think because it's a bit narrower) but no leaks, and easy to open, close and shake. A keeper, and well worth the $4 I paid on Amazon. I also bought some martini glasses at a restaurant supply today (Tap Phong on Spadina, for other Toronto locals) and discovered something odd. Many martini glasses are advertised as holding 8, 10 or even 11 ounces, which is absurdly large. The ones I got were marked 5.75 oz, which seemed generous, though they don't appear unusually big. But somehow, a 3 oz martini exactly fills one, with about 1/4" of space at the top - just enough to get it safely to your mouth (at least for the first one or two). So where is the remaining 2.75 ounces supposed to go? Is glassware measured in some special "ounces", like the half-size "cups" that coffee makers are calibrated in? Do those "11-ounce" martini glasses actually only hold about 5.5 real ounces?

And I love your "sedated" poster, Onyxnox!

Did you ever get to drink the martini? Or did you have to mix up one just to get prepared to take the lid off? Such trials.

I ran to get a screwdriver and pried the shaker open while it was still cold, of course! Cheesy

Wulf, you should have asked! Surely there are people here that would love to share their spare martini shakers. I use a spoon, so all of mine are "decorative". Oh, the humanity.

Oh no, I never even thought to ask my fellow Craftster-boozers! I'll know better next time.

And thank for the Spoonflower alert, Suereal. I've been intending to send for a sample to show my colleagues at work, so this is perfect. And maybe I can use it in my swap, if it arrives in time. I'll bet they'll be swamped with sample requests, though!

Unfortunately, my yard sale cocktail shaker turned out to be a dud. I was a bit suspicious when I found the lid hard to get off, but I bought it anyway because the guy claimed it opened easily when it had liquid in it. Huh But in fact, once it had a nice cold martini in it, the lid seized up so tightly I had to get a screwdriver to pry it off. The cap, on the other hand, won't stay on. So that's in the scrap metal bin now. I've bought a used one online - this particular make comes highly recommended on some cocktail blogs. We'll see...

Just bought a cocktail shaker at a yard sale. The man kept saying "You'll have martinis tonight!" and I thought "Yeah, of course I will." This shaker will get incorporated into a project that I'm making for myself. It's very apropos, so I'll share when it's done.

I haven't tried Citadelle, but I did find it in a local liquor store recently. Now that I have a recommendation from Mistress Jennie, though, I'll have to sample it. And the Gin Daisy sounds dangerously good.

Aaaagghhh! When I was little, I had a book that was some sort of "Our Natural World" encyclopedia. About half-way through it, though, was a page of unusual fish that included a particularly horrifying drawing of an angler fish, and although I liked the rest of the book, I never, ever took it off the shelf for fear of opening it to that page.

Now, of course, I think angler fish are very, very cool.
