Conley's package came!! Hooray! My original partner, sodalicious, disappeared  Cry but Conley came to the rescue! With an AMAZING package! Look at my awesome loot!

First of all, notice- she wrapped everything in pattern pieces! I haven't looked closely but one of them seems to be for an apron (how did you know I've been wanting an apron pattern?!). How awesome is that?


The first goodie I opened was luscious handspun yarrrn. One is sock weight (Lancastrian Sock Yarn, 50% cotton, 20% silk, and 20% lambswool) and the other is sport, I think (Unseen University Wool, 85% Acrylic, 15% wool). Yum!


Next I opened a Genuine Lancastrian Calorikerchief, which is the PERFECT color and I love it. See how much I love it?

and it makes my hair look even PURPLER.

Next was my "verra own macfeegle sized sheep"! SO CUTE


Then, Death Stitch Markers ("because even DEATH values the shock of a messed up pattern repeat") (I didn't have ANY knitting stitch markers, so hooray! Now I HAVE to make socks, no more excuses!)

also, they match my earrings, which have blue goldstone and bigger skull beads of the same type.

And finally, a perfect bag for the farmers market! Another thing I needed Cheesy
"Nanny's Knickers Bag"

Such pretty colors!

Thanks SO much Conley! You were the best angel ever and I couldn't have asked for cooler stuff! You rock!

I dyed again, FINALLY went back to dark. I've been regretting cutting off my black hair since I did it, I hate having my natural color and while the red I had was nice I just look better with dark hair. So, in the interest of keeping it at least red-ISH, I got a dye called "light auburn black" and it turned out kind of purple. I loooove it. I also cut the front of my hair but you can't really see in this pic.

23  Those cupcakes again... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by PinFish on: May 01, 2007 06:12:02 PM
Well, it's not very original, but after posting these in the regular crochet forum I realized I should probably at least enter, even though I won't win. So here is my entry, Cuppin' Cakes (yay homestar runner reference  Tongue )




aaaand again, for size.

24  had enough crochet cupcakes yet? (4 large pics.) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by PinFish on: May 01, 2007 05:29:54 PM
TOO BAD. mwah ha.

I was not entirely happy with the crochet cupcake patterns that I'd seen previously, and I was pretty sure I could make some I liked better. So, I did. I'm pretty pleased with 'em.







for size:


comments very loved!

Ooookayyy, so I haven't heard back yet from Sodalicious as to whether or not she wants me to post pics, so I'm going to anyway! Cheesy They're not great because I took them at night but I think you'll all get the idea.

Here's the whole deal. The shirt is actually HOT HOT pink but the colors are off from the yellow lighting in my dining room. Tongue

Detail of the shirt:

I love this stencil so much that I'm making shirts like this for myself and my sister's birthday. Where's My Cow is the BEST KIDS BOOK EVER.

My favorite item: The Librarian. Yep, the whole orangutan! Except that he's not feeling well right now. In fact, his morphic field is so off that when he sneezed... he turned into this book... (you may recognize it from The Last Continent!)

Inside


The Death-style bookmark...

Can't argue with Death! Get reading!
(also, this is my first piece of cross-stitch since I was 12!)

And finally the extras. A ship (sheep, for all you non-feegles) tape measure, and one of my favorite discbooks, Men at Arms.


Ok so maybe I did go a little photo happy, but I really liked the stuff I made. Tongue

I got my tattoo today! Naga hasn't gotten his yet, but he was there with me the whole time, holding my hand Cheesy
It was a great experience! I didn't get any pictures with him during, but I got one after.

aaand here's my tattoo, since you can't see it in that pic, and I'm a showoff.

A tattoo appointment at 3:30! I'm so excited!! I'm sure I'll be posting pictures later Smiley
EDIT

Cleaned up and finished! It's not a great picture- it's late, we had to use flash, and it's still shiny from ointment- but you can mostly see Cheesy

28  Re: Come one come all post your new tattoo IDEAS! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by PinFish on: March 19, 2007 09:11:03 AM
lookie lookie!! My friend drew up the design for me- so pretty!!!




The color is a little dark in this image. It's actually a bit brighter than that.

I'm going to the tattoo shop today to set up an appointment, but I have a few questions.

First, I know the answer is probably "it varies too much to say" but ANY estimates of price for this tattoo at 6"x6"? I've only got about $350 spendable right now so it'd be kind of nice to have a ballpark estimate before I go to the shop.

Second, do you think they'd be able to make a stencil of it? I know that makes things easier, and I have the outline printed out in the size I want.

Third, is the bicep area a good place for a first tattoo, pain wise? I know it varies for different people, but if I could get a few people to tell me their experience with this area it'd be great.

Thanks!

Guess who arrived, safe and sound!
Yep, it's Naga! He's the cutest. He's already made fast friends with my Pullip, Daciana.

He met my cats, too, but they wouldn't stop sniffing him so the pics aren't the greatest, haha. I'd have taken him outside but it's a bit damp and chilly yet! Come on snow, MELT!

Also, Lenny is on his way to NC! Hope he gets there safe! He wasn't at all nervous to go, though he sulked a bit about having to get all sealed in a box. But he's very excited!
