I will be cancelling my research project and starting a new one

Research Project Name: dude lapghan
Team: multimedia
Brief Description: There is a man at our church who just got put into a home and also just lost his final mobility and is now in a wheel chair. I am going to design and crochet him an lapghan. I will need to get the yarn, design the pattern, and crochet it.

I unfortunately probably won't have much of a chance to make much this season, and I didn't get my last few things submitted for Summer Games either. We had a house fire in the wee hours Thursday morning, and we are now living in a hotel. I have plenty of time to craft, but no room for materials. Isn't that always the way you either have time or materials, but rarely both.  Wink

We are all safe and honestly didn't lose really anything sentimental so we feel very blessed. Long story short, my 13 year old son had a friend spend the night and they were in the living room playing video games when they heard a noise in the kitchen around 1am. They went to investigate found smoke in our pantry, woke us up. I had him wake his brothers and get out, I hit the fire with a fire extinguisher until I ran out and it got too smokey to continue. The boys had already called 911. The smoke hadn't even reached the smoke detectors before we were already out of the house. My son playing video games with his buddy quite likely saved our lives (which means how in the world will I ever be able to tell him he can't again!  Cheesy ) Me hitting it with the extinguisher slowed it enough that the firemen were able to save the rest of the house. So we are blessed and thankful! It wasn't electrical and they honestly can't find any cause. That is probably what freaks me out the most. How can I prevent it in the future if we don't know what it was from.

I am hoping to be able to pick up some yarn and do some crocheting as that's a fairly small project and can fairly easily travel. Maybe a bit of embroidery too. We'll see, but I know I won't be able to do nearly all the great prompts there are this month. Hopefully it will be a quick recovery and I can get back to crafting soon!

Prompt:  AUGUST Version 2.0
Event:  Fabricology
Project Name: Waldorf Doll
Brief Description: I had made a curly haired doll for one of my nieces and her older sister then asked for one too. I had thought she'd think she was too old, but to my surprise she didn't think so. Here is her version. I made it slightly bigger (she is the bigger sister.)

Prompt: August Secret Stash
Team: Multimedia
Event: Fabricology
Project Name: Piggy Reading Pillow
Brief Description: For my niece's birthday I made her a reading pillow. She LOVES pigs, so the embroidery had to be of a pig. There is a pocket to hold a book when not reading it and elastic to hold the book open while you're reading.

Prompt:  July User's Manual
Team: Multimedia
Event: Foodology
Project Name: Sibling Rivalry Pretzel Bites
Brief Description: I have always been intimidated by the mixing, boiling, baking, etc... needed to make bagels and pretzels. So I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw this prompt. I of course decided on one of the hottest, most humid days that I should do this  Roll Eyes I made these beer pretzel bites with Sibling Rivalry Beer ( we didn't care for this beer, but it was so good in the pretzels!) Served with some queso.

Event: Foodology
Project Name: Pretzel Dogs
Brief Description: So my wonderful husband surprised us by stopping home for lunch when I made the pretzel bites. He said the only thing that would make it better is if it had a hot dog in the middle. So after he left again for work I got to work making supper of Pretzel Dogs. He loved them and they made him VERY HAPPY!

Prompt:  July Photogenic
Event: Craftology
Project Name: Senior Pictures
Brief Description: I don't know if photography counts, so if it doesn't please disregard. My son is a Senior this  year, and has NEVER taken a good professional picture in his life! The best pictures ever taken of him were by me, so instead of spending a fortune on pictures we decided that I would do them myself. Not being a professional I'm totally scared to do this! Here are some preview pics, I have more editing to do, and I want to get a few more locations, but I'm fairly happy with them so far.

Event: Foodology
Bonus Points: Edible
Project Name:Egg Salad Boats
Brief Description: I live in Wisconsin. We basically bleed green and gold around here. To help in limiting my clothing color palette our local school's colors are also green and gold. So here we have yellow egg salad and green cucumber boats. They were delish! My son had friends over and they loved them so much they asked me to make them again for them. (That is pretty high praise from teenagers!)

Project Name: Clothesline
Brief Description: I love my backyard! It's almost country, its a little city, it's a perfect little haven. My husband has been meaning to put up a clothesline for a long time, I finally got sick of it and did it myself. I may have gone overboard, but it's perfect! And the posts go 4 feet down, this thing isn't going anywhere!!!

Project Name: Embroidered card
Brief Description: I was embroidering a panel for a bag I'm making (probably a future submission) and a friend of mine fell in love with the embroidery I was doing. I decided to make her a much smaller version and send it to her as a little card. She can now do whatever she wants with it. Put it on something or frame it or whatever.

Project Name: Pineapple shawl
Brief Description: I was watching Firefly and noticed there were quite a lot of shawls. There was one that was only on for a second, but it was a pretty grey pineapple shawl. So I went off and made one myself. I was going to donate it, but I loved it way too much! So it's mine. (sorry the pic looks a little funny. It kept blowing in the wind, but it is quite symmetrical.)

Prompt: July Midnight Opening

Project Name: blue shawl
Brief Description: After making my pineapple shawl, I had shawls on the brain, so what better to do than watch some Jane Austen movies. This one I made while watching Sense and Sensibility

Prompt:  June Team Spirit Randomizer Time Machine
Event: Craftology
Project Name:Bright Future Grad Gift
Brief Description: My nieces' sister graduated this year. She is wonderful, giving, brilliant, beautiful... and we just love her. So when it came to giving her a gift I wanted something a little different than a card. I saw this on pinterest and made my own version. Celebrating her bright future. The card is a bit larger than I would have liked, but there was so much to say that wouldn't fit in a bitty card.

Bonus Points: team spirit
Project Name: Rocky's golden supporter
Brief Description: I love movies. Growing up I lived in the middle of nowhere. There weren't movie theaters, movie rental places, or even cable. We were the first in our area to get a betamax (yep dating myself), then vhs, then dvd. We would host movie nights for the neighborhood. So for gifts people would send/give us movies, and we would watch them over and over. I still have over a thousand movies. This project was inspired by The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I am on the school board and we wanted a creative way to show our appreciation to one of our founding teachers who is leaving. So I made him a Golden Supporter. The plaque says "Founding Advisor & Supporter 2014" And CHS for Cirrus High School on the waistband. Of course the presentation meeting turned into a round of "Janet, Doctor Scott, Janet, Brad, Rocky...." I LOVE our school board!

Thanks for the compliments, and the well wishes for my friend's son. He has a long road a head of him, but a great support system with many people who love him.

Prompt:  June Battle Rock Paper Scissor Lizard Spock
Event: Fabricology
Project Name: Spock
Brief Description: It's Spock. The whole thing is about 3 inches. A friend of mine has already claimed it, so I may have to make myself another one... maybe a touch larger for the wall where I have hooplas and doll quilts. (I wanted to embroider around the oval a bit, but he was stolen too quickly)
