This is so much better than I expected from the title alone! I was fearing some sort of odd gelatin concoction...
Is it just an aluminum mold? It must be pretty lightweight! And, it does look like you could still use it if you wanted, just in case you have a sudden urge for a turkey-shaped, fruit-fill gelatin dessert...
I have been on an unusually crafty hot streak for this round! I have one project nearly finished (it's in the trunk of my car) and a Brownie Points item 1/2 done. I have 2 prompts left to complete, plus 3 zaps. I think I can get it all done by tomorrow!
I even did a little bit of work for school today so I can not feel guilty about spending some time crafting for the rest of the weekend
Prompt: October- Loch Ness Monster Team: Textbook Bonus Points: n/a Project Name: Mac & Cheese Project Link: n/a Brief Description: I came across this recipe recently when I was planning to go to a Chili/Mac & Cheese cook-off at a friend's, but I never actually made it to the event, even though I had already bought the ingredients. So, since I knew I would be at my brother's the day after Thanksgiving and we would need something for dinner (leftovers were for lunch ), I brought the ingredients with me (4 kinds of cheese, an onion, store-bought spaetzle). How does this fit the prompt? Well, Loch Ness is in Scotland, and my siblings and I are 1/4 Scottish, and we ate it together. Plus, a great many Scottish surnames start with Mac (we are descendents of Clan Maclean). It might be a stretch, but it was either this, or a batch of soup that I could serve with my Nessie soup ladle.
Prompt: September- Brahma/Vishnu/Shiva Team: Textbook Bonus Points: n/a Project Name: Flying Spaghetti Monster Shirt Project Link: n/a Brief Description: My SIL's brother is a follower of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster who, with his noodly goodness, created the earth. This shirt is for him Project Picture:
Front (which came out slightly crooked- it must have shifted when I put the press cloth over it- because it was covered, I didn't realize until it was too late )
I have a large collection of floss but can't embroider anymore, I need to find a project that doesn't involve hand stitching. I have seen YouTube videos where people use a drill or screw gun type machine to wind the floss cards fast.
I was curious, so I did a quick search. Here's one with a drill:
And now, I want to get my little bit of floss and wind it all! But, I don't have a variable speed drill, which seems like it would be safer So, I'll wait Because I'm supposed to be doing 5 other things right now, anyway...
Well, thank you guys! We are a dedicated team, that's for sure!
I have some more projects to post, but I need to finish a few things and get some pictures. I'm in the middle of cleaning (part of that is going to fulfill a prompt!) and then I have to put together some posts. And one thing will have to wait until Monday (I'm gonna do the random acts one with more Operation Beautiful cards, I'll do it over lunch at work).
And maybe next round I'll get my research projects done...
Sounds like me! I just had to clean out the car (the trunk and backseat were loaded- the backseat had stuff piled as high as the headrests of the front seat!). I still have to bring in a pile of stuff, but I opted to drive down to the car wash place so I could vacuum it out before it got dark. And now, it's dark and I don't want to go back out
I'm about to haul out my Silhouette for a couple of Zaps and parts of a couple of other projects. And, I need to pack up the supplies I have for a project I'm planning to do on Friday at my brother's house. I think the only things I won't get done are Brownie Points (unless I can do one this weekend, all of my other Giver Projects fit the prompts), Random Acts of Craftiness (I have an idea, but don't know if I have time to do it), and my Research Project (but progress is happening and I definitely plan to get it done next month).
And, as much as I need the last few days of November to finish up, I can hardly wait for the December prompts!
ActsOfCraftiness, that stocking is adorable and I love the colors. I love how it coordinates with your pom pom garland and mini hoop ornaments! And, your spreadsheet is impressive, as is your floss collection!
And, I am getting ready to make my tray table ironing board (still haven't look for the tray table, but soon). Today, I picked up one of those Clover mini irons so I can keep it handy beside me on my little ironing board. I have a big paper piece project coming up, so I'll be needing it!
And, I should learn not to go shopping when I have a day off/vacation day. I am much more relaxed and prone to buying things not on my list. I went out for t-shirts, fabric, paint, and rope, and came home with quite a bit more than that But, once I go and empty out the car, I can get down to crafting and justify my purchases
