12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Fruit = poo on: November 19, 2008 07:07:18 AM
Ok, so this is my first ever cross stitch project. I'm so excited to be posting this!

I was inspired, months ago now, while reading a friend's blog, The Secret Life of a Manic Depressive. When I read that line I knew I had to do something with it, and after a lot of trial and error I finally came up with this.
Like I said, this was my first ever cross stitch, and I know it's not perfect. I think my stitching got better as I went on, and I learned that leaving your work in a hoop really isn't a good idea!
I used 14 count aida with 2 strands of floss for the text, and 3 strands for the pictures. I read somewhere that 2 strands was best for 14 count, but I thought it looked a bit thin. What would you recommend?
I used the Crosstitch.com caption maker for the text, and the pictures were from random images I found on google and charted.

Thanks for looking, please let me know what you think.
I'm so addicted to cross stitch now!  Cheesy
13  COOKING / Dessert / Portal Cake (video link contains a swear!) on: September 09, 2008 08:05:03 AM
My husband and I recently got a PS3, and he introduced me to Portal. It's the perfect game, as far as I'm concerned!
Anyway, Hubby had just started his new job, and I wanted to make him something yummy to come home to. After seeing this video(click "more info" for method, also it contains a swear) I decided to give The Cake a go. The only change I made was to use glace cherries instead of jawbreakers. It was so yummy, it totally made me forget my oreo dust covered kitchen Wink

On to the pictures!

Yummy cake!

Sediment shaped sediment (aka Oreo dust!)

This is my first time posting, so if I've done something wrong please let me know. Thanks for looking!  Cheesy
