I have deaf friends and once "tuned out" all background noise while writing notes with them. They did not sign but read lips and could "speak" if you knew them and how they said things. Deaf from birth is a hard one, as they don't know if they are saying things correctly. They sound a bit mentally challenged, and usually have fiery tempers  Grin

I love your afghan. That was a lot of work to create! I can sign the alphabet, but am very slow at it. I have watched the interpreters in my church, and man can they go fast!

There is a Jeff Dunham clip where he talks about a deaf group that came to his show. He is a ventriloquist with puppets  Grin Grin Grin I wonder how that worked out? They had an interpreter, so they still got his jokes.

Very nice work. I love the colors. And your top left and bottom right panels really set it off. I love how you did the "J" with the swoop arrow. A lot of thought went into making this, I am sure. I am rocking you.


Oops. The "Z" also has the motion arrow. wonderful.

Now, is that a real dog in your photo? And the guitarist seems to have real hands, so that is a person?

Very cute. I caught your other thread with the tutorial of how you made the skeleton's outfits. Interesting.

I live at the Holiday Ranch, and decorate for all Holidays year round. I don't have much room to store stuff, so it just stays out as is. I move it around in the rooms based on what Holiday is next. So each item gets to shine in the center front. Then I spin it to the back, and bring out the next one when it is time. I am a professional clown, so this does not seem weird to me.  Grin

Great job on your skellies. I have a dressmaker doll with a head I attached that was used for hairdressing school (thrift store...not much hair left. That is how they do the hairdressing thing. Real hair, but she has a pink wig now). Her name is Daisy Mae, and I dress her for all the Holidays. Right now she is in an Ugly Christmas Sweater. I don't have an outfit for Turkey Day, so this was the closest I could get. Next up will be her Valentine Sweater. Or I might drag out a New Year's sparkly something first. She is my dressmaker doll, so we are the same size.

She stands in front of a window, so people think someone is always home  Grin She used to scare me until I got used to her being there. I kept thinking someone was in my empty house! You ought to pull those skellies back out and redress them for Christmas  Wink They are cute!

I know nothing of this pratchett guy. What is the rude gesture? A very neat carving, though. You captured a likeness of someone. But it looks to me to be the peace sign.

I loved that tutorial, too. And those are very pretty. She edited enough out so as she is not redundant, but gave enough of a display so you can know what you are doing. I think this is a job that you could do with children over the age of 7. And you do the hot glue part.

I also use dinner plates and bottles for circles. A compass always seems to slip away from you.

She didn't do the doily part, but I can guess that it is the same with gathering the edges to make the center.
I would think it might be a bit bunchier there. You would need to poke the edges down inside before you put the green circle on top. To flatten it out a bit more first.

Very cute. I will have to keep this in mind for next harvest holiday. Thanks for sharing!


Edit: I save vegetable/squash stems. They would look more realistic than the twig for this project. Pumpkins, acorn squash, butternut squash, etc. Even tomatoe vine might look good.

My elderly friend passed to the other side. So it will just be me. Banquet TV dinner time.  Roll Eyes I'll buy two, so I have leftovers. The best part of Thanksgiving. Or maybe I will have the deli cut me some thick slices of turkey. For the sandwiches. And still have the snack plate and some pumpkin cookies. Or pumpkin bread for breakfasts. I could make several small loaves and give one to my daughter to take home.

I don't know. Thanksgiving is the 26th. I still have time to think about it. With any luck, I might be invited to someone else's party. Then I will just bring a covered dish of whatever they wish.


Edit: Momof2, what is Macaroni and cheese pie? Please share the recipe. That sounds good!

for edelC...I had a bad batch of dandelion wine. But how I sterilize for canning is in the dishwasher on hot water, and heat dry. I am not sure what went wrong with my wine. I don't think I went to bottle it soon enough. I wanted strong wine  Roll Eyes And left it go too long. And it was rotten before I got to that step. But my canning has all been good. And I am just a newbie at learning how for that.

Very lovely. You have an eye for detail, for sure, kbrison. Pick a favorite? The flower arrangement. So cute with the sunflower girl and scarecrow. And I love the autumn colors. It says harvest. And that is the best time of year.

I bought a warty pumpkin squash this year. I googled, and discovered it is a Hubbard. Good for eating. And Pumpkin Pie, though I won't make one. I plan to split it and add some butter and brown sugar. And bake it until it is tender. T-bone steak, and peas and mashed potato? Yum. And biscuits. I know, three carbs, two meat things...well, I will balance with the rest of my day. I need to gain weight. I am 5' 9", 109 lbs.  Sad

Those are Amish aprons. Very utilitarian. But useful. Like you said. Harvest aprons. To carry all your spoils into the house. Whatever they might be. Now where is yours?  Roll Eyes And how does this fit the prompt? I am still trying to figure that part out here.

My God. I have to read the books! You people are crazy here!

Hot glue comes in high temp, and low temp varieties. And for all the hairy threads that stick on..hit it with a hair dryer and they melt and go away! But yes, it is real easy to burn yourself.

They do make gloves for that. You can also find them in your cooking stores for use in the kitchen. They are a teflon product. I think NASA uses them in outer space  Grin

More neat projects! I am still trying to figure out how you fit all the prompts here. and jellybean89. I like your scrappy afghan. The way you have layered the variegated yarn is neat. I especially like that green, yellow, orange, yellow green segment, too. And I hate the color orange. But it looks neat like that. Fruity  Grin

And very pretty barrettes, midkiffsjoy. I have a poppy flower that I need to make for a private swap. I am making it like a member shared on here with the wire and fabric. And then fastening to the barrette clip.

Wow. just did a site search here for flower hair accessory, and there are all kinds I can get eye candy off of. I will have to check those out before I start mine.

Keep the goodies coming! This thread runs fast. Busy crafty HP people. I have to read the books!
