craftADDchick, I do wool balls for the dryer. I wonder how they compare? Very pretty quilt for a baby and with an added bonus of being visually stimulating.

bunny1kenobi, Fantastic job on your huge quilt. Yowza is that a lot of work! It matches that art work from my scrapbook pages. Here is the artist's blurb. It is called Holy Forest and is inspired by poetry. I can see that in the pattern, especially in your quilt.


Smeddley, I love your peg people. I think I will start collecting them. And of course Jareth. His hair was well worth it. I immediately knew who it was.

Prompt:  May Challenge - League of Extraordinary Gentleman
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Little Visitor Scrapbook pages
Project Link:
Brief Description: These are some of the scrapbook pages for my Little Visitor Gabby. These are specifically from the art museum and feature the work of several men and one woman which seems to be the ongoing situation in society as well as the film industry. Victorian women had a significant feminist movement which ties it back to the prompt.

Prompt:  May Challenge - Guardians of the Gallery
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Engineering
Project Name: Herbed Chicken Recipe, for human and dog
Project Link:
Brief Description: This is inspired by the Running Chicken Nebula in the constellation of Centaurus. Its a real thing, I had no idea. This is just a simple roast. I take the legs and wings off for a puppy meal. Cooked chicken bones shatter. Raw are ok for dogs who are accustomed to eating a raw diet.

Massage some butter under the skin over the breast meat. Sprinkle with paprika and Italian seasoning (equal parts oregano, parsley, basil, marjoram, etc.). If you don't have a spice, you can smell them as you add them. Just use what is appealing. Add a cup of broth from the last chicken or turkey that you made. I store broth in jelly jars in my freezer. Add water, filling the pan to two inches or so. I used a Pyrex baking dish which takes longer to cook and the chicken is a little more rubbery. The best is a cast iron frying pan. Bake at 350 for 45 to an hour. For crispy skin preheat oven to 425 and then drop it to 350 five minutes after you've put it in the oven.

The dogs like to have their raw meat in the yard because they leave it for three days in the Texas heat until it is nice and stinky. That's why she's making the face. She doesn't want to have to eat it in the kitchen. The white sprinkles are papaya enzymes for dogs and cats. Feeding indoors means that I have to wash that towel after one use. Some people use a plastic tablecloth and wash it after each meal.

I got this great pointillism card for my self portrait theme from blupaisan. The dots make it feel elegant for some reason. I like the visual activity they create.

Yes! Actually there are some service buns who do nursing home or school tours. My Chrissy is a pedigreed retired show bun. If you can get one I highly recommend one that is retired if they are from a family or farm with kids. That way they are used to being handled. Pet shop buns tend to be more wild and untamed from my experience. If you can find a breeder willing to let you take a retired show animal you may be saving a life. It isn't common knowledge but some who show small animals will put them down when they are no longer useful so their genes don't get out there and create another animal that will beat them at a show.

You can spin right off of an angora bun. There are other animals that are called angora btw. There are sheep and more! Bunny fur has very little tooth (wire-eee-ness vs smoothness or the felt-ability of the fur). Here is a video of spinning off the bun. If you own one as a pet you can usually find someone to groom them for free so they can have the fiber.
