That's such a cute little sofa! And in the first picture - is that a Ragdoll? He's gorgeous! I used to have a Ragdoll named Carmine.

Nah, it's a tiny Sacred Birman girl ^^ It's my moms kitty, her name is Roxette. She's kinda crazy. She's all small and tiny and cuddly, but she can keep all the huge neighbourhood toms in their place, having them cowaring in corners.

Oh, and I AM working on a tutorial, I'm just kinda picky on making a good one, so it takes a bit of time... ^^

She just chucked'em in the oven Smiley I don't think they give off any smell anymore, partially because they're kinda old by now
3584  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Oranges window adornment on: April 28, 2005 03:31:53 PM
I don't know a proper word for one of these in english...  Undecided

Anyway. My mother dried some oranges christmas before last or so to use them for some christmas decorations, but she never did it, so I took them a few days ago, along with an interesting sort of circular empty frame and the plastic leaves of another candle ornament (my mother was reluctant to let me slaughter it, but she didn't use it herself...)

And now I did this.



It's a bit more than half a yard high I think

I didn't actually break the leaves (maybe two...) so they can basically be detached and put back where they once were. I was thinking I'll give this to my mother for mothers day (last sunday of may).

Smart thing about the frame: It's a rubber circle and a plastic circle - the plastic one having a sort of "bend" inwards so the rubber one will stay put there, and press down and hold whatever you put in the frame (like an embroidery) so it was very good for attaching the fishing wire with oranges on it, and decorating the rubber circle separatly with leaves...

The oranges get very nicely glowlike in the sun, being half seethrough and orange

Let me know what ya think!

Well... I'm swedish, and we were never big on "big gums" with paper good enough to do anything with Wink Usually our gums came loose in packages. When I was a kid we'd make chains of dandelion stalks, or attach eachothers with the flowers to make the other persons face yellow. During the winter there was snow wars, and otherwise there was always yarn somewhere to fingerchrochet or tie into bracelets.
You know, those brief periods when we weren't fighting or having the flu.

I just got the most wonderful image of little swedish children adorned with dandelions frolicking in a field. If my previous thread offended you, I meant it to be funny, not mean Smiley sorry

No worries Wink

hehe thanks
You see the white flare on the left? That's the abused bit. Generally it should be shiny, but in that corner, it's not... And I've made shrinky dinks before without them getting abused from being in the oven a bit long...  Undecided
Thanks for the varnish tip Grin but the colors don't get distorted, it just goes a tad bit seethrough. If I ever get rich I'll try that though Wink
3587  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Crocheted doilies. on: April 28, 2005 01:52:27 AM
if any of the doilies are big enough you could make shade umbrellas Cheesy
my mother had a load of really finely chrocheted doilies (very small "holes" in it) so she asked me to attach beads along the rim, to add some pretty looking weight, and then she'll use them to put on top of like marmalade jars when having breakfast outside during summer, or on top of a lemonade jug. To keep bugs away. (There are usually a ton of bees, craving sweets...)
