Strawberries...yum!
Strawberry smoothies; blend with yogurt to make strawberry yogurt; I have had strawberry wine - but it may be much easier to just cut it up and put it into wine (or ginger-ale); strawberry fudge; strawberries and pumpkin would go together very well (saw a strawberry stuffed pumpkin recipe here    

Ooh, strawberry fudge? Do you have a recipe? I love fudge!

I've seen some recipes for strawberry brownies, but the reviews didn't impress me (neither did the ingredients - boxed brownie mix? Eugh)
There's some good ideas here, and I think I'll try a few and freeze the rest. I still have most of my last batch of strawberry vanilla vodka, so I might skip the wine though.

But seriously, strawberries and pumpkin? Ew! The best thing to do with pumpkin is give it a rub of sea salt, garlic & olive oil, and roast it with potatoes, onion and carrots. Mmmm, now I want a roast for dinner.

I made this skirt for my daughter out of two bandanna's and the bottom of a black t-shirt. I found the tutorial at Sun Scholars. That puts me at 48/50.

I got baby pictures! My friend used the set of baby photo props I made for her daughter's 1 month photo shoot!

I'm totally stoked and she did a nice job taking the pics too!

shan-E-bear I love the wand  Smiley.Just wondering how did you make it and what's it made of? Smiley.

The star is made from April Draven's star stuffie pattern http://aprildraven.blogspot.com/2009/11/star-stuffie-twinkle-star-free-crochet.html
I used a C hook (2.75 mm) and Premier Yarn Serenity Garden. Since the star is worked in two pieces I followed the directions until she said to stuff it. Then I took a 1/8th inch dowel spray painted it and put a fairly large blob of hot glue on one end. Shoved the glue end (dried) into the star then stuffed n stitched. Had to add sequins for increased shiny-ness  Grin

#8 - rainbow bag!



isn't that birthday candle fabric amazing! I'm still amazed... Wink



I adore the sailor ribbon. I've been hoarding it for years without ever finding an excuse to use it before.



the strap is selvage edges, you can only kind of see here, but it's awesome.

I hope you can tell I'm very happy with how this worked out!  Grin

Love it! I have got to make me one of those!

What sort of fabric is the rainbow striped squares from? It looks very heavy duty and durable.


Also,

Ooh, I like your hat! the yarn is neat, but the spiral makes it awesome.

The rainbow fabric was handwoven by me... from the sort of thin cotton yarn that makes good kitchen towels.  So, yeah, it's pretty strong, provided its edges have been sewn so that it won't unravel, but not widely available.  Wink In fact, there's only about two feet of it left.

oh goodness--the baby pics are adorable!  I love that you made the props!  The little crochet flowers are so cute!!!

love the Halloween/bandanna skirt!  It looks like so much fun--a twirly skirt!

silvermoon, your charity hats are turning out so nice...I have a box ready to got to Hats For Charity as well...after all, I can only wear so many hats and I love to make them! Cheesy

astromorray!!  You bag is fabulous!  I love that you incorporated things you have been saving--those types of bags allow you to use up the tiniest bits of things you have saved...they are like a personal history of your sewing!

The selvage handle is wonderful!  I have been saving slevages for years...kinda ran out of ideas of what to make...I have one more idea now!  Lovely work...

I also love that you pointed out the fabrics you wove!!  What has been the reaction of people when they see your bag?

Holy CRAP!!!  LOVE that TM bag, astor!!!!  Pinning right......now..... done!

Still in a craft funk....I think it's been about a month or more now since I've touched my sewing machine Roll Eyes  I've done a few hand projects like some TM pillows, embroidery, and jewelry, but nothing else to speak of.

I need this rut to fill in!
