sorry about the delay - major internet troubles.

When i saw the package i knew there would be wall art, which made me super happy. I opened it backwards to myself so i wouldn't spoil the surprise - and this was on the back!



what in the world could those be, you're asking. Well, I'll show you -


garden markers - Fallout style! AND, cause I'm so lucky



a VAULT-TEC STAMP!! sooo awesome! I'm no longer having a signature - just this stamp!

Then I unwrapped and turned around my wall art, to see:

THE FRONT GATES OF ORGRIMMAR!!


It's needle felted and SUPER COOL!

Thank you so much, PerfectlyBohemian!! This was such a great package!

Prepare yourselves for the awesome. Seatbelts on? Helmets strapped on? Good!

First - a phenom tshirt ! can you smell the awesome?


AND - it has our family motto on the back!


Some lovely artwork for my craft room! (SQUEE!)


And some seriously tuff earrings - I cannot tell you how much I like these - subtle, and true to theme and all kinds of AWESOME - and a sweet marble reminiscent of the glass globes.


And a cool bonus - a book to "write my adventures" in - this was so neat - Boomer and I have a similar esthetic, and I really love this.



Props to a wonderful partner!

13  WWE Wrestling Dudes in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Myrdda on: December 23, 2012 11:38:45 PM
Well, I know that there's a licensed set of wrestling plush called "Brawlin' Buddies". My version have been in the planning for a year, and I had no idea the official ones were being manufactured. I just wanted to save my couch pillows from my son.

I've made four, but they're all wrapped now. I only have a pic of the one with the worst facial hair ever grown: Seamus

Well, seeing as how bubblegum_phoenix can wait till doomsday, and my package will never get to her, it's best that I take negative feedback (because my sending receipt went who knows where) so she can get an angel! She asked me to show pics of what I had made (twice) so here we go:

A kimono



A Hogwarts uniform





A Quidditch uniform


Superman tshirt (and a Blue Sun corp, not pictured)


A copy of an awesome book (which has part of Watership Down for pages)



A blanket chest with a blanket



A Jayne Cobb hat and a Shiny mug


A mug for my partner



Canada magnets and pens



a Llama pin for my partner


some Pullip sized food


and that was the works.

16  "Lolli Dollis" in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Myrdda on: December 17, 2012 06:43:52 AM
So I broke down and bought this pattern of Etsy. I HATE buying patterns, but I was quite sure I'd spend more time drafting a pattern than it would be worth to me.

I'm making six of these little buggers, two for a co workers' granddaughters, and the others for friends' kids.

I made the doll, two outfits, and jammies for each of them. No socks or shoes, cause I just can't fit it into my schedule atm.

iTunes - you harsh bitch. However it's now up and running - so the pictures from my awesome Angel!!


The bag that I WAS going to give to my daughter, but needed to keep because it's perfect for me. Besides, DD got this:



which she's using as her purse, and is perfect for her. We were out on the bus when I took that pic; she loves having something that isn't as confining as a purse, and is different from all her friends.


this bracelet came with two others, which are in DD's room somewhere, so I didn't get a pic of those. I put this on and haven't taken it off. Cheesy the others have red cord, and are attached to a heart and one to a circle. The closures look like this:


this was such a cool package - i am so pleased with what my angel sent to me.

Thank you, Averia!

19  Apple Jelly in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Myrdda on: September 03, 2012 01:49:10 PM
So, I decided that I would take advantage of the long weekend to put up some apple jelly from some early apples the neighbors have growing next door. I don't particularly like these neighbors, but they're better than some. And, they have an early variety of apple tree (two of them) that they can't use all the apples from.

We live in a fairly cold zone (Prince George, BC - zone 3, I think) so it seems like a crying shame not to take advantage of whatever will actually grow and thrive up here. My garden burnt and died this year - I have some cherry tomatoes just now coming into ripeness, and that's all she wrote. Okay, where was I? right - taking advantage of growing.

So, regardless of how I feel about my neighbors, I asked for some apples, and said I would give them some jelly in return. He was just happy to have them not on the ground. The apples are a very pretty rosy color, which makes for some very nice colored jelly:



The flecks in the jelly are apple pie spices - I cooked the juice with four cinnamon sticks, and added about a teaspoon of ground cloves, and maybe two teaspoons of nutmeg. I also add about a quarter cup of lemon juice to counteract all the sweetness of the sugar.

So, I got about 24 cups of juice from the neighbors (and from 6 unripe green apples from my mom's tree - for the pectin and flavour) and I also fortified it with a carton of Sun Rype unsweetened not from concentrate apple juice. It produced about 29 cups of jelly:



I used about 15 cups of sugar, and about double the amount of pectin the recipe called for - it just seems, for whatever reason, I always need to double the pectin in the instructions.

I'm only giving about five of these away, as my family was bitterly unhappy about not having enough last year. What they've forgotten is that my Mom's tree still has to ripen, so there will be another batch this fall.

I really love this jelly used as a glaze on pork roast - SOOOOOO good!
