So much cute stuff again!

I love the Zelda piece!

mel- that cake and the fudge looked really yummy!

PaperBeau- was it hard to work with the jeans?

the main time issue was that I didn't get a good graduation in colour the first time round, had to frog what I'd done, and make up my jeans-yarn (jarn?) again. It was hard using the bits where the seams were, but I powered through, because I wanted as big a rug as possible for my jeans. What you see there is 2 pairs worth of fabric, but nice and thick to keep my feet warm in the kitchen. The thinner the strips, the easier it was, any thicker and i would have been tempted to try arm knitting Smiley

Here's how I ended up arranging my strips before attaching them together, to make sure I got a graduated ombre effect:

Just a super fast check in - I am totally overwhelmed by school and issues at home so I have had no time to do any crafting at all Sad  but I do check in with this post! You are all amazing. There have been so many posts I have wanted to comment on but keep thinking "but there was that OTHER picture I wanted to comment on, so I will wait until I can think straight and then comment on both of them.." After meeting with my advisor at school yesterday I don't think I will have time to do anything more than feel sick to my stomach for the next month, so I have to give up on the current dream of going back through many pages and commenting individually on all of your gorgeous, fantastic, amazing work!

Long story short - you are all awesome in your crafty goodness! Thank you for reminding me that there is more to life than what I am currently going through! Kiss

Your jeans rug is knitted?!?  That's amazing.  I wonder if that stuff could be crocheted.

Nice work.

Fun Princess Bubblegum ornament, even though I don't have any idea who princess Bubblegum is. Maybe she blows super huge bubbles to save the world and defeat the villains ?


She's actually a princess who is made of bubblegum!  Cheesy

Those crayons look cool, do you just use them like big fat multi colour rainbow crayons?


Yes we will. Also I want to go to the older part of the cemetary and do some rubbings of some of the headstones and mausoleums

It seems like a dangerous life with all the bubblegum chewers out there!

Paperbeau, your jeans rug will last forever! And it must be washable too. It looks nice. Was it long to make?
