The dachshund, made from acrylic felt.

I did this a few months ago, but just got around to photographing it for a photohunt.

He's flat. I thought about stuffing the torso, but gave up on it pretty quickly.

My original plan was to turn it into a magnet for the fridge. Now, I think I've been talking into making several, adding little ribbon loops and making a dino Christmas tree.

And my Navy dad said SOS stood for S*** On a Shingle -- meaning creamed dried beef (s***) on toast (the shingle).... Have to admit that about once a year I make it as some odd sort of comfort food (and I'm not a red meat eater generally):
Melt a tablespoon or two of butter
Add a couple of tablespoons of flour and whisk into the butter
Slowly add milk while whisking and bring to a simmer, whisking until thick.
Add shredded dried beef and continue stirring until warmed through.
Pour on toast.

My Navy dad calls it the same thing. We used to have it for dinner quite often... I think it was generally sausage gravy, though.

So, it's not the most detailed thing in the world, but I just wanted to do something last night... and this seemed as good as anything.

The pattern is from Toys to Sew, but I didn't enlarge the pattern. I thought a pink pterodactyl would be better tiny.

I haven't tried those patterns, but the felt dino patterns/directions are just terrible. Apparently the book could have used a bit of editing before it went to print.

Oh, fun. It's weird... but, I don't think I ever would have thought to use holiday Oreos for holiday cupcakes. I've done the regular cookies & cream a few times.

I just can't think outside the box, apparently.

That sounds good. I've never been a fan of the dessert pizzas at restaurants, which are usually a cinnamon layer covered with a frosting swirl or something. Way too sugary. With fruit, though... it would be pretty good.

I've been wanting to make those since I got the book... but, I never have for some reason. I stick to the basic vanilla and chocolate cupcake based recipes... I've never tried one with "extra" ingredients because I keep forgetting to buy them.

Looks yummy. S'mores sound so good.

"Cupcakes or death?" is good, too... if that isn't considered ripping off Eddie Izzard.

Haha, I posted this on another forum asking for advice, and three people (completely independent of one another) posted "cupcakes or death". I don't even get the reference !!  Embarrassed

Heh. That's funny. That's the first thing I thought up when I saw the words "cupcake" and "die" that close to each other. Good to see I'm not the only one.


^^ Clip from the Eddie Izzard bit... though still probably pretty weird out of context.


Bake or Die is good, as my boyfriend pointed out (reading over my shoulder last night) because if you ever decide to add more baked goods and even - Heaven forbid - drop the cupcakes all together... it still works.

When I was little my mom would always make me a meal of cut-up hot dogs fried with ketchup, and served with Kraft macaroni and cheese.

After I stopped eating meat (and couldn't be bothered with Tofu pups) I would still crave the mixture of tastes, so I'd have my mac & cheese with a little ketchup.

Fortunately, I've also stopped eating dairy... so there is no more temptation for any of the mess.
