Amazing work as always, Ludi and Jillybeans! Gorgeous sideshow stump work (heheh, gorgeous and sideshow together at last!) and wonderful castle set. I'd play with it!

Ludi, your mermaid is amazing! I need to pin that!

Jillybeans, awesome work! My daughter would kill for that castle, and the shoes are kickin' butt!

Bakeneko, I love that quote from Jake. He's so awesome!

Challenge/Battle/Alert: July Randomizer
Team/Ninja: Team S&M
Project Geekdom (if any):
Bonus Points: I'm claiming a discovery bonus for trying a new technique
Project Name: Kumihimo friendship bracelet
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: kumihimo is an ancient japanese method of braiding - used for lacing samurai armor. I made this as practice for the cord I wanted to use on my research project. It takes a while to make, but it is a much cooler result than straightforward braiding.
Project Picture:



Project Name: Nimuae Knotted Pouch
Team/Geekdom: Team S&M
Project Geekdom (if any): I'm going with math for the geekdom here
Bonus Points: ooh do we get to claim discovery? I mean being a research project means it is discovery by definition, but still?
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I followed a tutorial on Deviant Art, posted by Nimuae, to make this bag. While it is a very time consuming project, it was not as complicated as I had feared. You start with 7 sets of 7 strings (doubled over) and add an additional 7 sets of 7 so you end up working with 196 strings being knotted in various ways.

I was so waiting to see the finished bag!  It's great.  You say it isn't complicated, but it sure looks and sounds complicated to me!  Cheesy

your bag is amazing!  And I think I need to make up some of that samurai cord to have on hand.... so many times I need some kind of cording and have to go buy it.  This is sooooo much cooler than anything I'd be buying!  Grin

Challenge/Battle/Alert: July Wordy - Proverb "Necessity is the mother of invention."
Team/Ninja: Team Fantasy
Project Geekdom (if any): /
Bonus Points: Discovery, Engineering
Project Name: experimental can-curry
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425870.new#new
Brief Description:
I'm staying at my mum's because she needs me on hand to fit my wedding dress, and in return I'm doing chores for her. Today I sorted through her pantry, looking for the expired products. I found a jar of bamboo shoots that expired in 2007! I opened all expired and unlabelled cans to check if they were still edible (many canned goods remain safe to eat after their expiration date) and quite a few of them were! I made lychee-grapefruit salad for dessert, and this experimental curry that should last us the whole week! I also used up fresh bell peppers that needed to be consumed quickly.

I'm claiming the discovery bonus because I invented the recipe from what I had and I've never used spinach and tomatoes in curries before, I've only ever made fruit based curries so far. Also, some of my ingredients came from mystery cans. I hope my recipe is detailed enough to qualify for the engineering bonus! The saying "necessity is the mother of invention" really rings true, this dish was really formed by the moral need not to throw out perfectly edible food.

Challenge: May Multimedia - blue
Team/Ninja: Control Freaks
Project Geekdom: video games
Bonus Points: SNB
Project Name: Sub-Zero cross stitch
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425873.0#axzz2a1D8wgbN
Brief Description: since Sub-Zero's costume is mainly blue (representing his ability to control ice) and the majority of the background is also blue' this just obviously fits the challenge.  Grin  he's also another of my favorite Mortal Kombat characters, so I had to do him like I did Scorpion (see link within the Sub-Zero link).  I did this one on 14 count Aida making this picture 5x7.
Project Picture:


mistakes were made of course, but I figure I'm the only one who knows where they are, so big deal.  I'm just having too much fun making these cross stitch pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ysmeine - those are super cute headphones!  

silentblair - love the skirt and nesting dolls!  Dishwasher signs are so handy.

jillybeans - your castle turned out great!  I love how you did all of the little peg people.  The shrine and shoes are also beautiful!

Bakeneko - I love your Adventure Time notebook, and how you did half the hoopla in blue!  Your sun dying also turned out awesome.

Lindyv321 - cute socks, and that space shirt is fabulous!  I've been obsessively watching Dr. Who the past few weeks, too.  Grin

Ludi - your Feejee Mermaid is so...WOW!  I'm learning so much from your efforts.

Averia - that bag is incredible!  Isn't kumihimo fun?  I'm working on a couple large projects right now!  

Naantje - sometimes the best meals are the ones you just make up as you go along!  Looks and sounds yummy!

Krafty_Karasu - another crazy awesome cross stitch!  Super cool!
