261  A Halloween spider web in Halloween Costumes by pinokeeo on: October 31, 2007 03:31:16 PM
I went out this morning and it was only 28 degrees.  Just enough to freeze a spider web.  Check it out.

Ok, I received my last ornament today from Riario.  It's a cutie.

I also got that same postcard from gingerquilts.  I grew up in the city where gingerquilts lives now, and have crossed that bridge many times.  Thanks for the memory.

263  Look what you can make with Christmas catalogs in Winter Holidays by pinokeeo on: October 13, 2007 09:04:19 PM
My partner and I made this starburst ornament from the pages of a catalog that we received.

It takes 14 cutouts the size of a CD to make this.

Ok, I have received from two swappers so far.  The first one was from Gingerquilts, a little quilted birdie that's going to be so cool on my tree.

The next set of two is from Kittyvegas, clever and cute ornaments made from puzzle pieces.  A wreath and a candy cane.

Thanks, Ladies.

265  revamped cart in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pinokeeo on: September 04, 2007 04:41:12 PM
I found this old cart and rebuilt it.

I stripped off the old wood, scraped and painted the frame and built and painted new sides.  What should I put on it?  I have clean canvasses on three sides.

This is how it looks now.

Ok, here are the pics of the bulletin board that I made from one of the maps.  I actually only used half of the map.

The dotted lines are county lines. 

The red push pin shows approximately where I live. Roll Eyes Grin

Ok, I received from spydie.

First, the package:

Second opening of the package.  This was actually pretty cool:

All of the goodies inside:

There was an awesome bag, with rainbow handles even.  Very well put together. Also a pin. I believe everything was made using the same fabric.

And last, a checkbook cover.  The outside:

And the inside:

Thanks, Amber.  Everything was great.  The checkbook is already in use and the bag will be very soon.

269  Re: Goose in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by pinokeeo on: July 15, 2007 03:55:06 PM
I would definitely like to play Goose!  But I have a question about the rules.  When you land in a space occupied by another player, you change places- do you mean that you physically trade places (like around the table) or do you trade game pieces only, or both?  Or something else altogether?  Also, do you have any photos of the original version?  I'd really like to see it.

You trade places on the board, as in trading spaces.

The original board was in a book by Robert Bell, but i don't have a scanner.  I will try to take a picture with my camera, and post it as well.

270  Goose in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by pinokeeo on: July 15, 2007 03:32:13 PM
Ok, here is my entry for the Life is a Game challenge.  It is called Goose.  It was around in the 16th century, and was a very fancy game board.  I made it a little simpler and easier to see.  It is made by glueing up some plywood, so I could make a drawer for it to hold pieces.

This game can be played by any number of players, and anything can be used as a marker.  I used two rocks, two flat marbles, a button, and two pieces of wood.  I also included two dice.

The rules are as follows:

If you land on a cell that is occupied by another player, you trade places.

If you land on a goose, you double your move count.

If you land on the Inn, you lose a turn. 

If you land on a bridge or maze, you follow the path.

If you land on a well or a prison, you are stuck until someone takes your place or the game ends.

If you land on the skull, you start over.

The game is won by exact count only.  If you land on 63 and you still have some of your move left over, you count backwards to the end of your move.  Next move you go forward again.
