12  "Curiouser and Curiouser" Hoopla in Needlework: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: May 20, 2015 08:55:10 PM
It is very curious that until this hoopla, I had never, ever made an Alice anything. How queer! One of my favorite books as a kid was published by Dandelion Library with Peter Pan on one side and Alice in Wonderland on the reverse. I finally had the pleasure of creating something from that wonderful childhood memory for the lovely lindyv321, who also loves Alice. There is a simple crochet border around the hoop and a bit of red ribbon woven through the crochet.

Glad you enjoy your Box o' Alice, lindy! I was most worried about the frame breaking in transit, but it looks like the shrine base broke instead. Poo. Luckily it is an easy fix!

14  Falafel without the Frying Part in Vegetarian / Vegan by pottermouth on: May 17, 2015 02:30:42 PM
No fry falafel. It's quick, easy, and perfect for when it is too hot to cook. So maybe it isn't really falafel, but a sandwich filling or salad. Whatever you want to call it, it is really tasty. Found the recipe years ago and make it all summer (because who really gets tired of chickpeas?)

2 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
3 stalks celery, diced
1 onion, diced
minced garlic, as much as you like
2-3 Tbsp mayo, salad dressing, vegenaise, whatever
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1-2 tsp dill
salt and pepper

Dump your chickpeas into a bowl and smoosh slightly with a fork. Or a pastry blender.
Add all other ingredients and mix well.
Done. After all of that hard work, you should go make yourself a nice drink.

Stuff it in pita with some greens, carrots, tomatoes for a sandwich or eat it with pita chips. Mine always has tzatziki and here is a simple recipe for that:

1 cup sour cream
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp finely chopped onion
chopped cucumber, as much as you like
salt and pepper

jenleahlynn sent me TWO fantastic Harry Potter cards! (Got them on Friday, so I apologize for not posting pics til just now. I've ironed my hands.)

First up is (YAY!!!) an unbelievable shrink plastic Hedwig card with a spectacular swirly sky and Hogwarts. Unfortunately, the card arrived in two pieces but jenleahlynn shared some ways to repair it. She also offered to replace it, which is so sweet, but I adore this card and will restore it the best I can.

Here is a close up to show how much detail is in one of her cards.

And as a bonus she sent a super awesome Sorting Hat with Gryffindor sword! I love it!

Thank you dearly, jenleahlynn!

And I see that my computer is going to be a butt and insist on the last pic being sideways.  Angry

16  It's Just a Party, Janet in CHALLENGE 108 ENTRIES by pottermouth on: May 09, 2015 10:02:09 PM
One of my dearest friends asked me for a Rocky Horror cake for her daughter's birthday, and here's what I came up with. (Birthday girl's name is Raven, in case it's confusing!)

I never got a great picture with the candles because the party was in full swing when we arrived and I was immediately thrust into a corset and handed some toilet paper...

Here's the only other surviving photo:

That's a rather tender subject. Another slice, anyone?

Wah! Sideshow theme is one of my faves! The very first hoop I made (as an adult) was a freaky carnie, and they still give me the heebie jeebies.

The postman delivered happiness to my door two days in a row. First came a hilarious card from stitch and stones for my "Useless Trivia Knowledge" theme; a great Seuss-ian image spouting one of my favorite pointless things to know. He's so awesome.

Also delivered was my very own Atomic Energy Lab from cmarion! Ooooh, it's Exciting! Safe! Performs over 150 exciting experiments!  Cheesy It even came wrapped in brown paper tied with twine and is so very '50s.

Then today postie brought me the funny. Good thing I was already sitting when I opened it! AugustBell cleverly turned the greatest Mitch Hedberg joke into a priceless piece of art. Hee, hee, just thinking about it makes me snicker.

Thank you everyone for their wonderful works!

20  ATC Miscellany in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by pottermouth on: April 24, 2015 07:54:18 PM
Joining the Ongoing ATC Swap opened my eyes to a whole new world of tiny art. Craftsterers have made ATCs from shrinky dink plastic, polymer clay, fabric, you name it...it's there! I had no idea.

Here are two of my recent ATCs, the first directly from my love for Elsa Beskow and her children of the forest. Watercolour and coloured pencil.

And the second inspired by Aerosol's urban graffiti. Acrylic and Sharpie.
