1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Burlesque Zombie Pinup Girl Cross Stitch on: October 18, 2014 06:15:48 AM
A long time has passed I know, but I just had to add photos of her in her frame and on the wall. I never get tired of looking at her. I think she needs a name...any ideas?






2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What weird meals have you made while totally broke? on: July 13, 2012 07:45:11 AM
Well well well....I have a few to add-

Ramen noodles cooked as usual but without the seasoning, once cooked drain and toss in some canned chopped tomatoes and heat. Lots of salt and pepper.

Luncheon meat and tomato sauce on toast (YUM!!! Might have to make some tomorrow)

Vegetables (like potato, kumara, swede, parsnip, carrot, silverbeet, onion. DO NOT use things like tomato, lettuce, capsicum, corn) in a pot with water (use only enough to cook them so that you don't have to drain off all the nutrients in the water, but you could keep this water for soups if you wish) and garlic, salt and pepper. Boil until all of the veges are well done. Drain off the water and keep. Now mash all of the veges and add a little bit of the water if needed (think baby food but not as smooth). Finish off with butter if you wish! Mum used to make this as our baby food and my brother (who is 34) and myself (24) still love it to this day.


Now when I started university I was very broke and I lived off plain rice with peas and soy sauce. If I wanted dessert and I had milk I would have rice with milk and sugar. I would have wheat biscuits for breakfast and cups of tea throughout the day to keep the hunger away.

Instant potatoes and powered gravy mixed together and made up is good too!

5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: TONS of old magazines on: July 03, 2012 04:52:04 PM
http://doitandhow.com/2011/09/17/magazine-art-bowl/

I have a lot of music magazines that I intend to turn into one or two of these bowls. I may be some time....

Have spent the past few days trying to work out how to do this! I can't work out how much of the page to use and I can't get them to roll correctly! Very frustrating!

Class: Astronomy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: iPod Beanbag (star fabric)
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=410745.0
Brief Description: So when I do my cross stitch I like to sit in bed and watch Youtube videos etc on my iPod. Now my iPod is rather slippery so it often slides from where ever I have strategically placed it. Today I decided to make a beanbag for it so I can sit it on my knee and craft away without having to try not to move or having to pick it up all the time.

So I sat down, sketched what I wanted then made a pattern. I then spent the afternoon hand sewing it. It has a larger triangular part at the back which is filled with rice and a little ledge at the front to hold up the iPod which is made from kebab skewers.

Project Picture:




(On the screen is a show that Muggles love! It is called The Big Bang Theory, I am studying it for my Muggle Studies and I think it is brilliant!)

Sorry about the terrible photos, I only have my phone camera.




(watching some Big Bang Theory bloopers!)



It works a treat (as you can kinda see)

@pinkleo- thank you very much and I hope you get the spell working soon!

Also I would like to commend you on the beautiful robes you made me! I finally put on my new robes after I managed to burn a few holes in the 2ng hand robes I was given! I am fascinated by Pin Up Muggles and the 1950s, so these robes are perfect for me!
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Owl Hoop on: June 27, 2012 09:05:01 PM
So i just finished this simple hoop, it is a free pattern from Kincavel Krosses. I wanted to something quick so I had something finished as I normally do bigger projects that take forever! Not sure what I am going to do with it now. Smiley

It was also used for the Harry potter Craftalong.
