1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Turtles! - Baby blanket on: February 01, 2009 10:28:09 AM
that is so pretty Shocked, i love the turtles, great job!
is the pattern available?  Roll Eyes Grin
Thanks! The pattern is from a book I bought either at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. The title is: "Color Bright Creatures: 8 Awesome Animal Afghans
There are some pretty great patterns in that book.... There's a blanket with little lions on it that may have to be next on my to-do list.

I am sooooo happy to finally have this finished! This is one of those projects I started during some downtime, and then never got around to finishing. The friend I made this for had her baby a year and a half ago, and today I FINALLY finished assembling this blanket! I'm kind of in love with it.

BonEsInspired: No, I didn't use a pattern. I could post a tute, I suppose, when I make the new one, though. It was easier than I expected... basically I just traced around the uke to get the shape I needed, and gave myself a very generous seam allowance. I made the lining first to make sure it would fit, and then based the outside on that.

jukebox: I think that's exactly why it was going out of tune. But, I know how to fix it next time around, so we'll see if I can make it better!

Yes, I AM back from the dead! After a rather long hiatus, I am actually posting something new!

I have been playing ukulele now for a while, and my baby Stella needed a case. Soooo.... I used my novice sewing skills and created this:

Close-up on the detail:


The sad thing about this is that I don't use it... That red satin lining was a biiig mistake, as was putting a smaller zipper in the bottom instead of a larger one on the side. The gears in the headstock have already torn up the lining and every time I pull the uke from the bag, it becomes terribly out of tune.

But, I did think it was a pretty good first attempt, and I wanted to share it! If anyone has any tips on how to make the next one better, I'm all ears!

According to my records were just waiting on the following people to receive...

varandra
redgreen
nikkisixx666

I've sent to Nikki.... twice. The first package got stuck in customs. I can only imagine the second one did, too.  Angry
This is my first experience sending anything to a different country. Is it always this much of a hassle?

And Nikki, I am so so sorry you're still waiting on something. I feel so bad!

I made the Guinness cake yesterday for my birthday, and it was fantastic. So moist and delicious.... it's definitely a keeper!

Thanks, NikkiSixx, for posting pictures. I finally found my camera the day you posted those.  Cheesy I can't wait to try out all the yummy Thai recipes!

The package I sent Nikki evidently got stopped in customs. I am thinking it will probably never see the light of day.  Sad But I sent out a NEW package yesterday, so hopefully it'll get there by week's end!

Oh yeah. Here's a recipe I got from NikkiSixx666. This one is fantastic because it sounds like there's no possible way it could be bad. And it's an original!

Kool-Aid Slush

1 package of your favorite Kool-Aid
Vodka (or your favorite alcohol.... I imagine tequila or rum would work nicely with this as well.)
a blender.

Make Kool-Aid according to directions, using only half the amount of water called for. Freeze in ice cube trays.
Blend Kool-Aid cubes with enough vodka to make a thick slush.
Enjoy.

And my own addition to this recipe would be to not bother making any plans for the day, because this drink would put me out of commission. Grin

I just got a fantastic book from NikkiSixx666! I also got a box of Smarties. ^_^ I had to laugh, because one of the recipes she sent me was almost identical to one I sent her. Great minds, right?

I'll post pictures as soon as I track down my camera and feed it some new batteries.

Thanks!
