1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Garden/Outdoor Swap (SU closed; SO 6/9/15) on: May 06, 2015 09:56:25 PM
Haven't swapped in a long time, but feeling the bug, especially since I just finished planting seeds in my community garden plot . . . strongly considering!!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Flower Fairy on: May 06, 2015 05:13:10 PM
This is gorgeous! I love the wings. Did you make the pattern for her?

It's from an excellent book - "Knitted Pirates, Princesses, Witches, Wizards & Fairies" by Annette Hefford.  Using the same body pattern, you can create all kinds of variations since all of the clothes are removable.

For my fairy, I played with the colors, embellished a bit more and added the daisy crown.

 
Wow! Absolutely beautiful work! Cheesy How big is she?

Thanks!  She's about 18 inches tall.  Definitely a time commitment! 
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Homage to Andy Warhol's Flower Series on: May 05, 2015 01:10:46 PM
Andy Warhol's one of my favorite artists, so I knew I had to do something with his Warhol Absolut limited edition bottle.  I think the crocheted tulips do the trick quite nicely.  The stems are single crochet over wire and I also added a bit of wire to some of the tulip petals to make arranging easier. 

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Flower Fairy on: May 05, 2015 01:05:24 PM
I loved knitting this magical flower fairy.  Lots of short rows and beading went into her clothes and wings.  The wig was the first time I'd made one and it took an entire skein of yarn for her flowing locks.  Although she wants to fly around outside, her permanent home is on a bookshelf.


5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hoodie for Archie on: October 31, 2014 09:16:41 AM
It's getting cold in Chicago, so Archie's getting an entire wardrobe of sweaters.  This hoodie is so cute and can also be his Halloween outfit tonight because he looks a bit like a gnome with the hood. 

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / BLT Tea Towel on: October 07, 2014 11:04:43 AM
Celebrating one of my favorite sandwiches, the BLT, with this tea towel.  The designs within the letters are meant to remind one of the ingredient. 
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Candy Corn - knitted to celebrate the fall holidays on: October 07, 2014 10:57:01 AM
They are very close in size to actual candy corns

crocheted with fingering weight wool from KnitPicks.  
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: My utter failure in peeling hardboiled eggs on: September 30, 2014 05:35:35 PM
I love this topic string because I also feel that it's a bit of a mystery.  Sometimes I have no issues and other times it's a nightmare.  I think the older eggs are key. 

I've also learned (the hard way) that it's not smart to store the hard-boiled eggs in the refrigerator without peeling them.  I thought I'd boil up a batch and then peel them as I needed them . . . not a great plan.
