Thanks, KK.
My dad has an appointment at the VA tomorrow and there's a Michael's as well as a Hobby Lobby down the street from it so I'll be able to pick up the needle to root her hair! **excited**

anybody wanting to see the adult-only felted soap with genitalia... the pic is posted now.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=420236.msg4994953#msg4994953

It also qualifies as my first ever needle-felting project, as the "picture" was made and added later.

hijacked by alwaysinmyroom(moderator): FYI to all...if you want a direct link to a specific post, be sure to click the title on the POST, not the thread, then copy and paste.  It will take people to a specific post so they don't have to scroll down or anything!  Cheesy

Thanks for this update, ED...hopefully, the swap organizer will mark the pic MATURE! Cheesy

paperbeau, I love the book. The sheets inside are so beautiful by themselves. The bread looks delicious, I am not drooling...no, no, it's not me!  Is your starter liquid or solid? I made one liquid once but lost it when I went on vacations. I am hesitant to start again since the the first one took me three tries to get it right.

Aww thank you. I went on a massive paper making binge when I first re-entered creativity just for pleasure (rather than creatively solving problems in my mathematics degrees) To begin with I wasn't so pleased with my sheets, but I'm growing to love them.

My starter (now, I was very haphazard with it, so I think perhaps you may have been over-cautious in re-starting your starter and I think you should definitely give it another go!)..

Day 1) 75g water 75g strong white flour into a kilner jar (mine is pretty big.. 1 litre or 2 litres.. bigger the better). Mix very well, like with a fork or a whisk. No clumps of flour allowed!
 Stick a piece of masking tape or draw a line where your mix comes up to.. this is so you can monitor progress and give you hope!

Day 2) stir it

Day 3 or 4 (when you remember) go ahead and add another 75g water 75g strong white flour. Mix mix! move up the masking tape.

Day 5,6,7) Stir everyday, and watch for bubbles. You might miss the actual rising because it could happen overnight, but you'll be able to see some residue of the mix on the sides, higher than your masking tape. That means it's working! I was adding in more flour and water every other day, and all of a sudden I got home and my starter had grown to bigger than the jar, and seeped out the sides and run all down my table. I was ELATED! hehe

I found a good trick after you've seen it's started to rise is to add in a bit of only flour or only water, whatever you need to get it to the consistency of muffin batter (quite stodgy).. because it can hold it's bubbles better that way, and I think the yeast that's growing in there likes to breath (but that might just be me).

As for holidays - I keep mine in the fridge, I think hooch (an alcohol liquid layer on the top) is fine, you can either mix it back in, pour it away or drink it (I haven't tried the latter). Also, dormancy is fine, no bubbles, no problem, just feed it a little flour and water, I go for 50g of each every 3 or 4 days after it's first week establishing. The only thing to be worried about is mould growing on the top. Then you have to start again, but as long as there is no yoghurt in your fridge during your holiday and the starter's lid is on tight, I'm sure you'd be fine for at least  a week.

I've popped this onto my blog too, and add some photos when I have good light.. so you can find it without trawling through the beautiful projects on this thread. http://paperbeau.weebly.com/3/post/2013/03/a-haphazard-sour-dough-starter-recipe-for-success.html

good luck!!

Thanks Paperbeau. You have convinced me, I will try again, it gave the bread a sour (tanguy?) flavor that we really liked.

Krafty_Karasu, that is amazing. I want to try my own book shadowbox now.

PaperBeau, your bread looks tasty. I've always wanted to make my own bread with a starter.

kittykill, I always love your embroidery.

FreakieGeekie, I love the rehairing. Some weird reason I find rehairing kind of calming.

Found a small black desk clock with the battery cover missing at the Goodwill, and painted it up. With DH's glasses for size comparison.


Posted here, with a few more pictures.
