Hey, long time lurker, first time poster.
Anyway, I'm putting together a huge present for my beau. He's somethin' special.
He keeps complaining he's cold whenever I'm on the phone with him, so I made a fleece tie blanket out of these two blankets I got over at Rite Aid. I basically took two fleece blankets of different texture and shade and made them into one blanket. Unfortunately, he's 5'11" so it's not really his height, but at leas he won't be so cold at the computer. I'm REALLY sorry that I don't have any photos 'cos I wrapped it already, but I did get a neat scarf out of the leftover material from the fuzzier blanket:
(pardon the kitten on my lap and pajama pants hanging on the chair...)
So I saw this (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69486.0
) and thought, WHAT A REALLY GREAT IDEA. Now, I don't necessarily have the talent or fine motor skills necessary to make them as great as McJulie-O did but I thought I'd give them a try anyway... Uhhh... the result?
You may notice that I didn't use sliced almonds. Well, uh, I didn't have any. >_> So I used more chocolate chips. The darker heads are dark chocolate.
These two monsters got this way 'cos I made the mistake of popping the bowl back into the microwave for 20 and the chocolate seized, but I Was almost done so I didn't really care. <_<; Luckily it's probable that my beau doesn't care either.
I went photo-crazy. Sorry. :]
Materials...after the whole mess.
I got a chance to start a new foil ball!
I'm 15 and I still play with my food.
I found a cherry without a stem and got reminiscent of my school's Winter Ball so I just took some syrup and made a Shirley Temple.
Next was a box of store-bought candles, so you don't have to see that.
And the last part of his present will be a/some store-bought penguin(s) since I have like no fabric or stuffed-animal-sewing skills whatsoever. D: I'm going to have to do a lot of store-hopping today. (it's 3am) Wish me luck.
Hopefully my guy doesn't see this before he gets his present. :]
Wish me luck~
Oh yeah, thanks for reading through my tangents... ._.;
