I received from kwality570! She is a fantastic partner, let me tell you!

First, the shiniest little notebook (Firefly):

Isn't it so cute? It's a great size too.

Next, a very handy tote bag (Chuck, a very fun spy show with great music):

2 fabrics plus a certain logo.

Look! The tote bag rolls up and can be secured with elastic and a button.

I love tote bags that store themselves. Thank you so much for that feature, kwality! And the whole bag!

Finally, the piece de resistance:

A weather vane jewelry holder from Gravity Falls (cartoon)! Wow. It is beyond clever. And I really needed a jewelry holder too! I would have never thought of doing this and, if I had, I would have never, ever attempted it.

Thank you, kwality, for everything!

Prompt: March International Women's Day
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Strawberry Shortcake
Project Link: 
Brief Description: I love strawberries. I love strawberries in strawberry shortcake. I tried a new technique for the shortcake: roll a piece into a ball and bake it in a muffin tin. No more rolling out and getting flour everywhere!
Famous woman: Scientist Barbara McClintock. Like many genetic discoveries, studying plants helped. Strawberries are plants.

Prompt: zaps
Team: randomizer
Bonus Points:
Project Name: "built-in bra"
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I got this dress on super sale for yet another formal wedding. Unfortunately, the armholes were a little revealing. After trying to adjust the bodice and the bra, I had a doh moment: Just sew the bra to the bodice. Problem solved!

Thanks, gozer and roler! Ooo, I'm a nerd of the week! Thanks!

Actually, the fabric was very easy to work with. It was stable yet supple! It frayed more than cotton, but 1/2 seam allowances kept that from being an issue.

LovelyMiss, what a lovely interview!

gozer: Angry cats! So fun.

roler: Oh, those mug rugs! All kinds of neat.


Prompt: February battle (blizzard)
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points: 
Project Name: sweet potato glass noodle "chow mein"
Project Link:
Brief Description: So, it turns out I was using a faulty burner for the hot chocolate. Got that fixed and made this based off of this pin. I was browsing one of the local Asian stores and stumbled on sweet potato glass noodles. It turns out they have an extremely light taste, you can't tell it's sweet potato, but they go well with the recipe with a few modifications (my notes are on the pin.)

ETA: I just realized I haven't been explaining how these projects fit the prompts to anyone but myself. This one would taste good after going outside and playing in the snow the blizzard left. The hot chocolate would be good for Red Riding Hood (a story the Grimms collected) to take to Grandma if she didn't dawdle in the woods talking with wolves.

Prompt: Jan. battle - Grimm Bros.
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points: 
Project Name: hot white chocolate
Project Link: 
Brief Description: Is it supposed to take over half an hour to make hot white chocolate on the stovetop using milk and white chocolate chips? I thought this was going to be a zap, but no. I've never made hot chocolate of any kind on the stove before. Sheesh, I was not expecting to stand over it that long. But, the end product, topped with marshmallows and whipped cream, was delicious!

ETA: The hot chocolate would be good for Red Riding Hood (a story the Grimms collected) to take to Grandma if she didn't dawdle in the woods talking with wolves.

Research Project Name: formal dress
Team: randomizer
Bonus Points: 
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I lengthened my Agent Carter dress pattern, lowered the neckline, and made it sleeveless. Add dull satin and a new sewing machine for Christmas (YAAAAAAYYYY!) and you get a formal dress. And a crummy picture, but whatever.

Prompt: December cardboard box "seasonal door decorating"
Team: randomizer
Bonus Points: Giver
Project Name: Phineas and Ferb (and Perry) doors
Project Link:
Brief Description: At work, we decorate doors around the school in December. I referenced this pin Phineas and Ferb. The "popcorn" is crumpled construction paper courtesy of a passel of kidlets.

Prompt:  December battle - Lincoln Logs
Team: randomizer
Bonus Points:
Project Name: raspberry muffins
Project Link:
Brief Description: This battle is my childhood: I was always torn between legos and lincoln logs! Considering the lack of love for the latter, though, I must cast a vote for them.
A mom at work turned me on to raspberry muffins using frozen, unthawed raspberries so the juice doesn't get everywhere. Yum! Sharing recipes seems very pioneer-ish, don't you think?

Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points:
Project Name: zipper x3 pouch
Project Link:
Brief Description: I like zippers, which some people think is crazy. This like of them can lead to a dangerous amount of confidence, which, in turn, can lead to me getting mad. Fortunately, this project turned out, so it's all good now.
