1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / "Thumbs" Playbill on: August 30, 2008 07:16:58 AM
For the last two weeks I've been performing in a show called "Thumbs". While backstage one of the other actors mentioned that we didn't have a poster for the show. That night I went home and made up a pattern that had the symbol and writing that is on the front of our scripts, and then added everyone's names and the dates.

Three days later I had this:



I gave it to the director on the final night, and he loved it!

Oh, and if anyone's interested, the review is here: Thumbs

Some blood drops turned out really good...others not so much. But over all I'm really pleased with it.
2  COOKING / Dessert / Fun with Desserts! (mmm pictures) on: August 26, 2008 12:50:05 AM
I recently moved out of home, and no longer have my over bearing mother learing over me while I'm cooking. I've discovered the joys of baking again!

Here's some sucesses, and one spectacular failure. Enjoy! (sorry, the pictures aren't the best)


Hand made muffins:

Poison: dark chocolate, sultanas (raisins to you Americans) & pecan nuts
Not Poison: Just dark chocolate
(one of my house mates is allergic to nuts)

Handmade Rocky-Road:

I made the marshmellows from scratch, and it was my first time ever. It turned out really well, except that I ran out of chocolate to cover it more fully. Lesson learned.

And next.... Devil's Food Cake:





Believe it or not they were both made from the same recipe 1 day apart. The top picture was the first try, and the second one was 1 day later.

My housemates and I dubbed the second one "fail cake" and we piled on all of the cream that we had left, and random fudge icing and anything else I could find. It actually tasted awesome, despite the fact it tried to commit suicide off the bench.

Thanks for looking!
