It's a boring week here, Anana has been amusing himself by playing the "spot the pineapple" game in Psych, but he refuses to acknowledge anything that isn't a full pineapple... the idea of people eating pineapple or pineapple smoothies our anything like that is just not acceptable.

Anana is here and enjoying a rousing (and cutthroat) game of Adventure Time Munchkin.

Poe is home, and brought a ton of souvenirs from Washington State and Alaska. And soooooooo many pretty pictures! The landscape up there is just breathtakingly gorgeous!



First up, a shot of the stuff from the fisherman expo (including lots of recipes!) and brochures and postcards and lots of fun stuff to read! 



Loot!  There's sea salt (I don't know why, but the line "Sitka Flake" just makes me giggle), nesting dolls, more expo loot, herbal muscle rub (I soooo need that right now - spring yardwork has begun), soap, a shark tooth, a fossil Poe found, a teeny crab figurine, and a deck of cards in a tin.



And you had to see a close-up of the magnet! Too funny!



Seashells and sand dollars! And seas glass, which made me nostalgic for the times I went to my grandparents house next to Lake Erie and we'd pick up sea glass...



Scrapbook!  Seriously, even a themed scrapbook!  I don't think I've ever seen anything so pretty that was Kansas themed... :/

And the pictures inside are just so pretty!  Also made me nostalgic for the time we lived in Washington State, we had a good view of Mount Rainier.  *sigh*  I don't hate Kansas, I just... don't love it.

Anyway, pretty pictures!





What I wouldn't give to live there!



So pretty...

Thank you for being such an awesome host, Wildfyre! Cheesy

Argh, where does all my time go?!  Besides to Lego Batman 3, which I finally broke down and bought...  Wink

I made some zill dragons to sell at a workshop, breaking my "no selling" rule really only to cover the cost of the workshop:

















A sling for a member of our troupe who has limited use of one of her arms, I made the base out of costume-matching fabric, another troupe member added tons of sparkle...



Ami Little Red Riding Hood and Wolf:



Aaaaand a bookmark for the library's bookmark contest.



Now, back to baking a bunch of pies for pi day...  Cheesy

So many good things!  And yes to monsters...

I'm thinking of four things I could do, if anyone is interested.  Little Zill Dragons (they hold bellydance zills, but could be used for anything:



Tiaras: SEE HERE

Goal Book: SEE HERE

Button hoop, either like this:


or more like this:

Okay, I got back from the show and it's my last-ditch attempt at some finishes!  I was working on some of this today... and some of the explanations might be... creative...

Prompt:  December - Egypt
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: UFO (started over a year ago...)
Project Name: Zill Dragon!
Brief Description:  Bellydancing tends to come in three varieties - Egyptian, Turkish, and American.  This little zill dragon is, of course, a fan of the Egyptian style...

Project Picture:


Prompt:  January - Freezing Point
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Sling to match a costume
Brief Description:  One of our troupe members has hurt her shoulder, so the number of moves she can do with that arm is ZERO.  To keep her from hurting it further on accident when we performed, we made her a sling.  I made the base as shown here, patterned off a sling used after rotator cuff surgery.  Another troupe member glued a LOT of bling to it so it was awesome come showtime.  Now at least I know if I ever have to have an arm immobilized, I'll be able to do it in style!

Project Picture:



Prompt:  January - Cold as Ice
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: UFO (started over a year ago...)
Project Name: Blue Zill Dragon
Brief Description: A Dragon certainly doesn't have a warm and cuddly personality!

Project Picture:


Prompt:  February - Basket Case
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Little Red and Wolf
Brief Description: STASH ONLY - she's carrying a little basket!  Sorry for the awful picture, it's the best I could do in my house after dark...

Project Picture:


Prompt:  February - Dye me a River
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Bookmark
Brief Description: STASH ONLY - made with INK pens, this is my submission for the library's bookmark design contest.

Project Picture:


Prompt:  Red Alert - Love is in the Air
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: UFO (started in October of last year...)
Project Name: Pink Zill Dragon
Brief Description: It's pink!  That's one of the colors of loooooove.  Plus, I finally figured out a way to make these with sewing in the zippers that I don't hate, so... I do love my pattern, now!

Ugh, I have been... not really busy, I don't know, just absent.  So, now, for a project dump (sorry...)

I looked on my list and I don't think I posted the Goal Book I made for my friend:



We went to Vino Van Gogh and I painted a large version...



And my LV, Willow, painted a tiny version...



Then on to swap things...

A hood for the Nerd Games Swap


A box for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap:


A peg gnome for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap:


A paper mache framed butterfly for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap:


A fairy door for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap:


A knitted bat for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap:


That's all for now... hopefully I'll have another bunch to post soon!
