Awesome! I would show my husband, but he would want one, and I couldn't sleep with that in the ROOM much less on the bed!
22  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Hippos and her diaper logo for my friend on: July 05, 2011 06:59:09 PM
My friend loves hippos. I googled hippo clip art, cute hippo, hippopotamus clip art, etc and these were my three favorites. I couldn't decide which to do so I did them all. I was sooooo mad at that diagonal line in the top one. I haven't carved in ages and I think the carving block was sitting at an angle on top of something else in my supply drawer and it dented it. I didn't notice until I tried to do my first print with it. I hope she likes it anyway. (PS I did go back and clean those extraneous lines up a little more after this pic was taken)

She makes cloth diapers and this is her logo. It stands for Fluffy Butt Club.

I do a lot of crafty stuff but I think carving is my absolute favorite right now.
23  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Anyone ACTUALLY stencil with lemon juice? on: July 02, 2011 02:45:38 PM
I've seen it suggested to be used as an earth-friendly alternative to bleach, but can't find any actual results. I have a 100% cotton shirt out in the hot Colorado sun right now that is not showing ANY change after about 90 minutes and several re-sprays. Just wondering if this is going to pay off or not. I am SO impatient.

Oh! I simply adore those pants! May I try this, as a gift to my younger cousin? I wanted to get your permission first, that way I won't be stealing your idea. My cousin loves domo (sp?) and monster stuff that has teeth like that! Simply a wonderful idea, and very creative!
Go for it! Funny I was just thinking about these the other day. They are in the "I can't use this but don't want to get rid of it" box because the crotch wore out.

Crochet, sewing, stenciling, stamp carving, & I like to try new stuff too.
26  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Is this a stitch? Does it have a name? on: December 22, 2010 09:11:31 AM
I've been making a lot of "cozies" for Christmas gifts and I use hdc. I just do it in the round instead of joining rounds & chaining because I can't make that look good for some reason. So when I finish, a regular FO would look weird because a hdc is so tall. What I do to even it out is sort of like a half-double crochet but instead of finishing the stitch I finish up like a slip stitch. Does that make sense? So YO, insert hook, YO, pull through all loops. And then I do a regular slip stitch and the clean fasten-off (got that from the "Creepy Cute Crochet" book) so it steps down and it looks pretty even.
So if I want to write my patterns down, does that hdc/ss have a name???

I'm so glad it all got there in one piece! I could not find a box to send it in, not even at Wal-Mart, so I got an index card box and a bubble mailer. Then AFTER I paid at the automated station I remembered that the PO has those lovely small flat-rate boxes for FREE, durr. I was so worried, since the tracking site said there was no record of it until after it was delivered!

I received from RhymeswOrange yesterday but only stopped by the mailbox this morning (our mail gets delivered to a box down the street). And because we live so far away from my parents and haven't been sending them pictures ever since my 21mo broke the camera, they bought us a new one, so I got to try it out today!
Here's everything:

A crab for my 3yo, who's been asking me for a crab ever since he watched the Wonder Pets Save the Fiddler Crab, and I could never find a good pattern he liked. AND for accessories, a mallet and lemon half, so funny! We've never actually eaten crab but Kalten loves smacking him and squeezing the lemon to make dinner.

His expression - priceless

closer look

Stealin my candy

His cute belly - his legs have some kind of wire in them, right? He's poseable!

Goodies for me! Toblerone, an eyeball pincushion from my Etsy favorites (I don't know if I'll be able to actually stick pins in it!), and an ergonomic crochet hook. Thanks so much for everything, RhymeswOrange!
