Love Hoot.
Going to have to google " dying hair with  KoolAid".

I have a large pot of Ruby Grapefruit Marmalade bubbling on the stove. It needs to simmer for two hours then remove pith and add sugar and boil for 20 minutes (usually about 30 for me) until set.

Not much crafting for me this week, got a fox mitten 3/4 done and started a fox bag (no pattern  Shocked ).

We did form Shakalakaboomboom, a girl rock band, on Lego Rock band and spent several hours last night touring.  Grin

Haha, great name! The grapefruit marmalade sounds delish!

Ffrogg, how did the felted bag turn out (the one that was in the wash when you posted)? I hope it shrunk to where you wanted it! I like the little house you made for KnickerTwist!

Silvermoon, the owl hat is really cute! I'm pretty sure that we can't get TimTams over here, unless we have a swap partner from Australia!

I've been going back and forth between WIPs this weekend. One of which I completed this morning! I'll try to get pics up later, right now I need to keep knitting the heel flap of my sock.  Smiley

Great felt badge, waggonswest!  That swap moved fast!!

melerific - beautiful dress for a beautiful girl!!

Ffrogg - that bag is epic!!

SilverMoon - love your hats, especially the first!  Love your expression, too.  Do I spy a fellow curly girl?

I played around with some scraps and came up with this fabric cuff.  I'm not crazy about it, but I'll probably still wear it once in a while:



Ugh, my pictures are awful.  I need to make a light box.  I know Nooo posted one here a while ago - why didn't I bookmark it!?!?

So this weekend I've...
- almost finished the front of Britta Bear's pillow cover (planning on finishing after posting this!)
- finished my "homework" so I'm ready for my next sock class on Tuesday - I'll be learning how to pick up stitches!
- finished 1 1/2 repeats on the wedding afghan (hoping to get some more done after finishing the pillow cover)
- made 22 cards!  Cheesy They're simple, but I like them! I'll just post thumbnails, since there's a bunch of pics.






















Ugh, my pictures are awful.  I need to make a light box.  I know Nooo posted one here a while ago - why didn't I bookmark it!?!?

I know exactly what you mean! A light box has been on my list since she posted it, I just haven't gotten to it yet. Of course, it doesn't help that I got my camera in June of 2005, making it almost 7 years old.

However Kool Aid is only $5 a packet or so - does the colour last long, and do you need to bleach first?


$5???  It is 4 for $1 around here unless we have a translation problem as well as a currency issue?  PM me and we'll figure out how I can send you some! 

You don't want to know the price of PopTarts, Peanut Butter cups or cans of American soda then. (Last time I saw PopTarts "on sale" they were $8 a box)

Koolaid is $6 at our local sweet shop & pop tarts are $12. The peanut butter cups were $3.90 for the packet with 2 in it last time we bought them.
And I only live a few hours from SilverMoon. USA Foods seem to have the best prices but then you either have to pay for petrol & nearly a 2hour drive or you have to pay delivery costs


I just finished item #50. I need to post pics from the last 15 or so

Oh, me too! You know what, maybe AIMR should make it a challenge, then we'd all finally get around to making one!

(And yes, highly curly hair, when it is long. Ringlets even. But I preferred it short, spiky and purple, hence no avater update in over a year lol.

Skittlebub, Poptarts are only $11 here, but GroceryRun often sells them for $8, and they have the $10 shipping cap too.

I haven't posted on this board in awhile.  I've made some blankets for Project Night Night but they had just gotten a large donation and didn't need mine right now, so that's on hold.  Finished up an angel package that will go out tomorrow, and my big project now is crocheting 34 scarves for my preschool students for next year's Xmas gift.  I started a bit late this year and was crocheting like a maniac at the last minute.  And I'm soooo happy, I stopped at Joann's the other day for safety eyes, and found pairs of gloves for 50 cents each!  So of course I purchased 34 of them to go with the scarves.  The scarves are a great project-quick, easy, for a good cause, and it uses up a lot of stash!  Wink

Wow, I feel guilty when I pay $0.65 for the two-pack of Pop-Tarts from the vending machine at work, because I know if I bought a box it'd be cheaper.  But, then I'd eat the whole box at once, and that's not good.

Here are some projects I finished in March, it's for the Three Tiny Movie Things swap:


25. From The Fantastic Mr Fox, a hoop with what I thought was the funniest part of the movie.  Yes, they actually said the word "cuss" throughout when they were swearing.



26. From Amelie, the gnome (it's a needlebook)



27 - Little Visitor swap - a hip scarf for Charlie!



28. And from Spirited Away, a reusable shopping bag (yes, I realize this pushes the 4" rule, but since it's main function is to be folded up and stuffed into a purse to be carried around - at least I say that's what it is! - I'm saying it's permissible...)



I've started many more things, including playing with Shrinky Dinks - I forgot how awesome those are - but I've not finished a lot lately.  Argh, this year was supposed to be about finishing!  Cheesy
