Thanks for all the lovely compliments on my werewolf, though it was intended for my nephew it has been stolen (by my highschool children) and brought to school and is now their class mascot, so I may have to make something else for my nephew.  Tongue

Battle/Challenge: October Let's Celebrate
Team:Multimedia
Bonus Points: none
Project Name: Crochet lace pillow cover
Brief Description: International Pillow Fight Day 1st weekend in April, that was my inspiration for my pillow cover, I don't think I'd use it to have a fight with (though it probably will be part of a pillow fight at some time in my house). Either way it was the inspiration for this crocheted pillow cover.

Ezri, the wolf was adorable and looked like so much work! It turned out great. I love the pillow cover too. It seems really soft from the pictures.

gozer, I saw that bag in the swap gallery and I am insanely jealous! Graceling is one of my all-time favorite books, and you did a great job representing it!

Battle/Challenge: SEPTEMBER Convention
Team: Multimedia
Project Name:Cookies!!
Brief Description:


I've been only to one convention so far, but I learned that you could always do with something to nibble/eat. Specially if it's geeky enough. Wink

It's the 50th Anniversary/Birthday of Doctor Who, and I bought the cookie cutters that are part of the merchandise. Never used "embossing" cookie cutters (usually keep the embossing to card making and scrapbooking!!) so didn't know how deep they would go in/how thick I have to keep the cookies. I also haven't got any icing colours so this is a "dry" run only - to be devoured by the Hobbits ("Doctor Who Biccits"), myself and the hubby. Wink Or maybe I can steal some for tomorrow's crop ... who knows! Just have to make more on Sunday, I suppose. Cheesy

I used a normal Butter cookie recipe I got in my Christmas cookie file - but will think about other recipes (and will gladly take any of yours onboard, if you want to PM or give linkies to me?!).

Ingredients (for 70 cookies ... that's for small cookie cutter ones which don't need the depth of embossing ones)

300g flour
200g unsalted butter
100g sugar
1 Egg
1 pinch Salt
1 tsp finely grated Lemon rind

Mix all items together and quickly knead into dough ball, then put it into the fridge for 1 hour to cool (wrapped in kitchen foil).

Roll out dough on slightly floured table top (or wherever you usually roll out your cookie dough), cut cookies and place them onto a cookie sheet covered with baking paper. Bake in pre-heated oven at 180 degrees Celsius (believe that's 356 degrees Fahrenheit?) (160 degrees C/320 degrees F fan assisted oven) for about 10-12 mins. Place on cool rack and let them cool.

Then decorate as you like.



The Doctor's anniversary is on 23 November, so I suspect I'll have a couple of trial runs before then! Wink

Oh ... and ... casualties: 1 decapitated K-9, 1 fully shattered Weeping Angel (YAY!), 1 slightly leaning towerish Tardis. It's quite interesting that the Weeping Angel cookie cutter has given me the most trouble ...  Roll Eyes

Yes!  You need to have your tasty goodies in the Con Suite, or at any number of Con Parties!   Cheesy
