2121  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Crafty But Stupid: YOUR CRAFT RELATED INJURIES HERE! on: March 15, 2008 06:33:21 AM
I have a large scar on my left hand from the one and only time I tried to make bread rolls- and was then trying to cut one in half. they were as solid as flipping bullets and my bread knife is ve-he-hery sharp.

I've poked myself in the eye many a time with scirros, crochet hooks etc.thankfully though those injuries tended to die down a bit after I hit 15 'cos I got glasses- unrelated to my repeated eye injuries hahaha! although it is still possible to poke oneself in the eye with the blunt end of a big knitting needle even if one is wearing specs. I have the scratch on my right glasses lens to prove it.

other than that, I was once rollerskating down my mum's hallway and fell over impaling my right thigh on one of her knitting needles- so I guess that's craft related; just not MY craft lol!

I got campilobactor food poisoning from not cooking some meat enough (they think; I'm actually sure it came from a restaurent but couldn't prove it), passed it to my husband who then ended up in hospital having his appendix out (appendixitis is apparently a common side effect of campilobactor) and then after his operation he was shoved in isolation because he'd got a virrulent strain of the poisoning. I had to wear gloves, apron and a mask to visit him. And then he had to go easy on the pulses, nuts and anything with too much fibre in for over a year 'cos the bacteria sort of damaged his intestines a little bit... *ahem* so I suppose that's me injuring someone else with my craft. honestly, my cooking's not that bad!!! his poisoning was a one off and I swear it wasn't my fault!!!!

every 3 months or so me and the hubby do what I call "freezer living". exactly what it says; we live on food from the freezer and store cupboard to run our stocks down. it's a home-style stock control.

we do end up with some pretty wierd stuff sometimes though!!!
and some things become a regular occurance too; for instance all we had were some lamb chops and potatoes. I took rosemary from the garden, baked the lamb chops with the rosemary and then grated the potato. squeezed out the water and fried to make rosti.
served the lamb on the rosti.
ok so it was totally nutritionally unbalanced, but it was darned tasty!!!

we're due another freezer week I think.

we don't get much stuff in squirty cans here; but this did get me thinking... what about the squirty ketchup bottles one can obtain from such wonderous places as the cash and carry or a big tesco? think the tomato shaped sauce bottles you used to get in little roadside cafes... surely a squeezy bottle would do the trick just as well?
hmmmm.... may need some experimentation.

I'm fairly sure fig newtons are close if not the same as fig rolls.

begnadigen Sie mein Deutsches. es ist eine lange Zeit gewesen, seit ich studierte, also ich Alta Vista verwende, um zu bersetzen. Ihre Jacke ist ausgezeichnet und Ihre Stickerei ist schn.

and your English is one hell of a lot better than my alta vista-supplimented German!!

went out yesterday to the pound store in my local shopping centre.
spent my fiver. unfortunately due to currency fluctuation I'm 18c over 'cos I spent 5 on my stuff, and checked the conversion rates this morning... but by the time this is posted I'm sure it'll all be ok lol!
started and finished 2 of the things I'm making within 2 hours of getting home, and photographed them and I'm working on the 3rd.
I'm trying to see just how many things I can make with my fiver's worth lol!!!

2130  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / BabyWearing Poncho on: March 10, 2008 05:34:39 AM
link to my mai tai: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=228966.0

It's cold here in the uk. after seeing the price of babywearing coats online I decided I could do better; or at least do similar for less money!!
One cold day while visiting my mum I picked up a fleece poncho in a charity shop. with the help f my mum and a pair of cheap scissors we created my babywearing poncho. a straight cut was made about 4 in below the main head hole. the cut is about 6 in long. it hasn't needed hemming as it's a fleece poncho and wont fray. as you can see, soph's incredibly happy about being toasty warm; so happy she went to sleep on my back while we were visiting Glastonbury this weekend. she likes the poncho, she flaps her arms and says she's a bird.

total outlay for poncho: 3.50 (c. US$7 ish)



and here she is awake and eating lol!!!
