7. Cookies for Library Open House



Of course I forgot to take a picture until it was 2 a.m. and the cookies were already packed and ready to go but here's a crappy photo anyway.  Four dozen each of triple chocolate, peanut blossom, cherry and heart-shaped sugar cookies for the local library.  Hope there's lots of hungry readers today.  Smiley

David is working on a section of yesterday's fiasco filming disaster and has since learned how to turn off demo mode lol
So our footage today was loads better.  I'll let you guys know when you can see our blooper reel...

Troublet - I'll get my taco melt blog entry updated in the next day or so.  I know I'm behind but I have to get moving again on my next design and I'm going to enter my first ever Craftster challenge and need to get started on that.  Cool

Sunspotted - ooooh those look so yummy!  I'm going to make cookies later on today so I can send the kids in with goodies in their lunch boxes tomorrow  Smiley

I'm just curious what's the largest number of floss strands you embroiderers have used at once in a project? I just worked with 12 in one go and man a pain in the butt it was....honestly I was trying to make the process go faster but it was probably a wash in the end.

Just got done an afghan for hubby. It was done in single crochet, with a Q sized hooked and (mostly) two strands of Lion Homespun yarn held together.  I haven't bothered to measure it, as it's "big enough". 

Will post pics when my computer starts behaving and my fingers uncramp.

12?! Wow!  Shocked  I use 2. I have done 6 years ago when I didn't know you were suppose to separate them.

The blooper reel has been uploaded to youtube...
It is bizarre - and only a portion of it... but you get the idea of what happened. 
I thought I could salvage the part with the eye assembly but even that, 4 minutes in, was pretty much a wash.

Okay... here is the Bulletin Board/White board I recovered with fabric.  Still not on the wall.  I also did the Zombie survival case which has ben deemed the "most epic birthday present ever"  I have also been awarded the coolest stepmom ever award(by a 16 year old) Smiley

mmm those cookies look so yummy.

aliasgracie, the coolest stepmom ever, lol, I take it the receiver was very happy. I've been wanting to make a zombie defense station but don't really have anywhere to display it so it keeps getting pushed to the back burner.

Finished my holiday bunting/garland project, for Valentines day, I realised today that V-day is tomorrow so I had to hurry up and finish. Recycled materials, the hearts are two pieces of cardstock cut from old cards (am I the only one who saves every card they're given?) glued together, then covered with pages from an old book that I crumpled to give it a more aged look. I also tore the pages off to get a ragged edge.

Hanging up


Close up, I'm not a heart person and normally don't like Valentine day decorations but I'm really loving these hearts.

lady4... I love that garland.  It is gorgeous.  I've been seeing lots of crafts made from book pages lately.  I think I need to add something to my list.
