Ok, I deleted my Craftster cookies and logged in, but I have to do this EVERY time I close my browser.  Is that what's happening for everyone else, too?  I use Internet Explorer (with DSL service, if that matters) and I've never had any problems before.

I have to do it about once per day

I like the white bots o the material, it gives it that 'home-dyed' look.

I like it when things don't look home made, so people get surprised if you decide they've been good enough to know Wink

swedish fish are little red gummy candies in america too. I don't know why they're called swedish.
We don't have gummy candy fish at all I believe Wink I recall seing something similar in red and in green for a brief period of time, but they didn't really have any name, and they weren't very popular... Not sold in individual bags, but in one of those stacks of boxes where you just mix your candy however you like and pay by the pound, sort of.

Worked in firefox too.. Tools - Options - Privacy - Cookies - View Cookies - Remove all Cookies
Phew! Got scared there, 'cause only about 70% of craftster works in IE for me...

Thank you for that!  My firefox wouldn't work either and i REALLY didn't want to have to use IE. 

Is not a permanent solution though, I just had to log in and do the same thing all over again... it'll get a bit tedius in the long run

Haha... lutfisk just taste of water... Glgg is rather nice (spiced wine served warm..) though the most swedish thing like that should be Julmust, but it'd lose all its carbonic acid during shipment I'm afraid Wink
Then there's Surstrmming, which is also swedish fish: I.E. fish that has been left to rot under controlled circumstances, and is then eaten. That tastes a lot, but it tastes, well, like you may imagine, and ten pounds of salt..
Then there's dried fish. Dried cod, or similar. Can be quite nice, though even the cats get bored with it.
Now we do not have anything we particularly would separate as "swedish fish" as far as I or anyone I know of know, but please do tell if anyone does know... Wink
Because even if the above is very swedish fish... I don't see why anyone would want to eat it. Smiley

Ps.
Besides, the names of things in the states can be misleading... as far as I can remember, "swedish meatballs" aren't very much like our meatballs... Wink and we sure as hell wouldn't specify them as "swedish" here. Smiley

So I went to Vildhavre's place for five days, and even though we spent about 70% of our time playing World of Warcraft (it was hot as hell and freaking humid, so there wasn't much else to do during the day if you wanted to live) we actually managed to craft things too! And there's pictures!

So first of all we dyed fabric. Amazingly simple process (acid dying, directly translated, only works on silk, wool and nylon)

http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/silk.jpg

You can't see the golden shine here unfortunantly. There was other silk that got dyed too, but I didn't remember to take a photo of it. You can see it a bit in another pic further down though.

These are the nylon pieces I dyed. It's a cotton/nylon mix, so the nylon (on the front) got dyed but the cotton on the back didn't.
http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/Nylon.jpg
The pieces were a little to big for the cauldron, so there are pale spots, but that's okay.

This is a corset that Vildhavre made me last fall, but which I needed her help to check the length of the "rope" in the back. It's very difficult when my boyfriend helps me with it, 'cause it thourougly terrifies him.

http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/corset_back.jpg
Please ignore my dying clothes Wink

This is Vildhavre's cat Garfield. He's bigger than she is. He makes my fat cat look tiny.
http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/garfield.jpg


This is the can we decoupaged.
http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/can_before.jpg

Decoupaged with orbituaries and whatnots. Vildhavre dyed the newspaper in tea before decoupaging it. (it got rained on too, 'cause a storm suddenly hit)
http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/can_after1.jpg

http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/can_after2.jpg


And finally, the magazine stand we decoupaged.
http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/magazinestand_before.jpg

Kiki did the decoupaging really, I just provided the knowledge and glue Wink
http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/magazinestand_during.jpg
Decoupaged with silk, that seethrough one you saw above, and the seethrough ones in other colors which you can see spread around her here.

This is the finished stand, and a felt hat we made. (Wasn't supposed to be a hat, but we figured it'd work well as a hat..) The decoupaging kinda looks like asian paper or something, irl.
http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/magazinestand_and_felthat_flash.jpg

No flash
http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/sundsvall/magazinestand_and_felthat_noflash.jpg

That was kinda it Grin
We were gonna felt more, but she'd misplaced her papers where it said how much wool you needed... Wink

Maybe I do know and I'm just shocked Smiley Or maybe I don't.

psh i'd LOVE to get some swedish stuff!
Well, pray tell, what swedish stuff is there, that's "swedish"? Me and my friend tried to think of some stuff, but all we came up with was swedish wool, reindeer leather and horn, and tin thread.
swedish fish! i luv those candies  Grin
