A your turn peice is an awesome idea!

Not sure about the excess peices, either the side of the fridge or we have some magnetic boxes from Ikea I might use... either way it is going to have to be an honour system..  Lips sealed

Don't mind at all!


I'm in Australia so I went to Officeworks Print Center (kinda like Kinkos, but in a stationary warehouse). It was only $3.60 for the photocoping, it fits onto an A3, and $3.45 for laminating, and $9.95 for the magnetic paper - but it wasn't really strong enough to hold the letters through the board, so I ended up cutting up those free promo magnets real estate agents etc letterbox drop, which would make that part free!

Hi everyone,

My husband is Scrabble-mad, but was complaining we never get through a whole game the other day so today I made him Fridge Scrabble so we can spread a game out over time. It only cost $20, I can't wait to show him, but for the next week I will have to settle for sharing with craftster until Santa comes.

Here's a pic:


I have hundreds of letters left over from our wedding (I got them on eBay and used them for name tags) I took our scrabble board to the copy shop and had it copied and laminated. Then I glued magnets to the back of each one. I also used the magnet paper to print a set of numbers we can use to keep score and name tags for our scores.


Hope you like it!

My mum used to have pinecones spraypainted gold on our tree, people always compliemented them. If you wanted to keep them in a natural theme they would also look great tied together with some red ribbon.

I got completely lost towards the end of that pattern, mine stuck out at the top in an odd way which I think was caused by too many stiches, I ended up undoing several rows and winging it, worked out OK.. blocking cures all evils. Sadly I don't have a pic as it was a gift I was rushing to finish.

Have a look at this (it's only 5 seconds) http://s6.photobucket.com/albums/y210/flutteringdetails/?action=view&current=P6202594MOV.flv

Here's another clip that is longer, but more instructive: http://www.magicflyer.com/commentcamarche.mov

How do you think they work? The top and bottom wings must be wired separately with a rubber band joining them. Here's a clearer picture from the same site:



I am just not sure how they join at the top to allow for the winding. DH thinks it must be a ring, but I don't understand how you would assemble it. I want to put them into Christmas cards, I am so impressed!

That hat is awesome.

I cannot wait for that book to arrive. Amazon and I need to have a serious chat about the meaning of the words "expedient shipping."
