21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Small buy nothing swap round 4 on: August 28, 2009 09:56:22 AM
17 miles of yarn.  Wow.  I'm hoping someone in this swap wants some yarny goodness.

Ooo! Ooo!  Me!  I've been drooling over slouchy knit hats lately...I normally don't wear hats, but I think they're super cute, and would give me something to cover the many bad hair days I encounter (and my husband is a hairstylist...what's up with that?!)

Yay!  I'm excited...I've been wanting to do another swap, but I'm unemployed and didn't want to spend a bunch of money.  This is perfect!  I can't wait to get partners and start crafting!

I'm considering joining this swap...I've been bored lately, as I've been laid off for 2 months now.  This would be my biggest swap yet (meaning points-wise) and the first where I'm not given a clear idea of what to make (I've done hoodie, jar of whimsies, etc in the past).  Kinda intimidating, but it looks like fun!

Hi there!
I've only made my own sushi a couple times, and it's only been california rolls with fake crab (for times when I'm desperate for sushi and broke).  Anyway, are you using real sushi rice, or just regular rice?  I think that makes a big difference--sushi rice gets real sticky.  I would think the canned tuna would be ok, though it wouldn't be as "solid" or "straight-shaped" (can you tell I just woke up from a nap Wink and could be a little more difficult to roll.

For rolling, I've always used a mat, but it's always seemed kinda unnecessary for me...I just use it cuz I have it.  I got the mat for a different project originally, and it was just from the dollar store ($1).  If you feel you really need something to help roll, try the dollar store first, I've seen lots of similar mats there (I don't think you need a whole kit).  I put plastic wrap on top of the mat, then the sushi stuffs.

Good luck!

Thanks for the advice!  It makes me feel better about the Oreo balls, as I've never made them and was kinda nervous they'd turn out ugly/bad.  They sound pretty easy, and I think I'm going to make them at least the day before.

Thanks for all the advice Smiley I've attended No Coast several times as a shopper, and have always loved the mix of vendors and such.  It seems to be a well-run show, from what I can tell. 

Yeah, it would be my first show/first attempt at getting in a show, though I grew up being in arts and crafts shows with my mom (she's an artist) so I do have a little experience that way.  Anyway, I make nipple pasties, which isn't something I've seen at No Coast before.  It may be a little risque?  But then again, I try to do everything very tastefully and fun, not tacky.

At any rate, I'm still on the fence about it, as I would have a LOT to invest in before the show (if I got in), and I'm currently unemployed Sad I'm going to think about it and possibly apply closer to the end date.

Thanks, kjlutz!  Smiley

I have read that it's best, if you make the candy sushi ahead of time, to do everything early except the fruit roll-up part, since that can get sticky?  Anyone have that experience?

Thanks so much, savage pixie!  I got your PM regarding the application info....I'm currently debating whether or not I want to apply.  I've never done this sorta thing before, so it's kinda scary!

Note: I posted this in the dessert board yesterday, then realized that this board is really the right place for questions like this.  Sorry for the confusion/inconvenience, and thanks for any help!

Hi there!
I'm planning a bridal shower for this upcoming Saturday for my best friend, and will be serving a bunch of different desserts, rather than a full meal (it's in the mid-afternoon).  Anyway, 2 things I for sure want to make are Oreo balls (the bride loves chocolate and cream cheese, but not chocolate cake) and candy sushi (the bride's favorite food is sushi).  I'll also be making some cupcakes, fruit salad, etc on the day of the shower, so I want to be able to make the balls and sushi ahead of time.  Is this possible?  How far ahead can I make both (1 day? 2 days?)  The sushi will be similar to what we've seen around here before, with rice crispie treats, fruit roll-ups, swedish fish, etc.

Thanks in advance for your help, hopefully this can save me a little craziness the day of the shower!
