I also knit, so one pair of socks would be on my list, along with everything I have mentioned up there.

I may be able to offer the ultimate gezzer accessory. A single person, handmade hammock.

Ooooooo.  I'd take either one of these.

I was gonna offer to arm wrestle you for the hammock, but then I realized you'd kick  my ass.

LOL!  Cheesy I believe it! I have yet to see a picture of pinokeeo, but I know she's mighty.



Yeah, I've been working out, drinking milk. Finally benched the bar at the gym.  Cheesy But that pinokeeo is a tough old broad who's been around the block a time or two.  And I bet she fights dirty. Wink   Kiss

Now would I do that?  I'm a nice person (most of the time).  I'd even offer to share my hammock. Grin

In that case, may I have the 1-3pm time slot for my daily nap?

I'll pencil you in. Cheesy

Yeah, there's room out here for lots of hammocks.  And there's even a few trees that would hold them up. 


I am hopeless when it comes to getting in or out of those things. I turn into comedic relief for anyone who is watching. LOL

I think I'd pay to see it, too.

And I love shortbread.  Especially if it's made with real butter.

And what is stumpwork?  That's a new one for me.

Real shortbread should only be made with butter in my not so humble opinion. Making it with margarine would be a sin! Wink

Stumpwork dates back to the late 17th century and is the beginnings of 3D needlwork. There are some absolutely amazing extant (i.e. historical pieces still in existance ...I'm geeking out on the historical aspect...sorry.) pieces of this technique at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. I was absolutely drooling when I was in the Textiles room.  

Here's a piece that combines a bit of ribbon work.

I couldn't agree more.  My Nana would turn over in her grave if I even thought about making it with margarine!  Mmmm, I may have to make a batch out of season because now I'm craving it. Cheesy

I haven't got pictures of my stuff, 'cause I kept giving them away!! Cheesy

I have made these little designs before, from Jane Nicholas. janenicholas.com




I love making the bees, with their fuzzy bodies and little wired wings. I made a few just on their own, in tiny gold frames. Of course you don't have to use traditional designs, you can use these techniques for all sorts of things. However there are a LOT of hours involved.

I see it as seasonal too! I usually make it during the fall and winter. After the New Year, it always disappears out of my mind until the nip is in the air once again. Smiley

That's when I start thinking about it, too.  For me, it's a Christmas tradition.

The stumpwork is fabulous.  I could go for something like that, too.  Geez, I think I got the gimmys.
