21  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: What are you gonna be for Halloween??? on: October 19, 2009 01:10:27 PM
No crafting involved in mine, but I am going as a fried agg... A yellow shirt with a hood, and then a white pullover over that. Last year I was a "buccaneer" where I made earrings with a dollars worth of coinage on them!
My daughter wants to be "a ghost with a spider on the top" thank GOODNESS for having an such an easy-to-please 4-year-old!! I just bought 1.5m of this slightly textured white fabric, and I'll just plunk it over the top of her head, with a buttoned 'collar' to keep it where it should be, and paint some black eyes with cut-outs so she can see.
DH is going as a "redneck" or a zombie... No crafting in that, except maybe a beer 'helmet' (I'm thinking of tying a beer can to either side of his head with some duct tape or pantyhose!)
22  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: tired of the sexy-everything costumes? on: October 19, 2009 10:48:52 AM
I made it through about 7 pages, and now I have to comment, sorry if this is repeating anyone!

In spirit of the original "sexy-everything" post, I thought I would give a little visual comparison for anyone interested:







It's not a matter of appropriate vs inappropriate or anything, it's a matter of literally, WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE SEXY??? If you want to go as a pirate, then go as a pirate and if you want to go as a sultress, go as one... but why the need to mix the two?Huh??
23  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What's your weird guilty pleasure? on: July 21, 2009 10:28:46 PM
Well, I only got through to page 5 or something, and I am already sure that my weird foods are uncommonly (for my world anyway) NORMAL!!!

Saltine crackers with cheez whiz and raspberry jam (I could eat a whole sleeve in one sitting!!!)

Margarine on ALL sandwiches, on ALL toast, no matter what else is going on them!

Doritos to scoop cottage cheese with

peanut butter on s spoon, then rolled in chocolate chips or coconut-or Both:)

Speaking of peanut butter, I'm gonna go find me an apple now..... and some cheese (thanx to all who suggested those! To think i've gone 24 years only putting caramel on my aplles.... the SHAME!!!)

Holy cow piles! I can't beleive you actual crocheted those last 2 with your non-dominant hand!!!!! Amazing job, I never would have thought of that, and can also understand why you'd want to quit after 2!

Those colours are a great combination too, and although the purple feels a little out of place, the end result works well!!
25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Chainmaille with Rubber and Anodized Aluminum Rings (extremely img heavy) on: May 25, 2009 06:33:11 PM
Absolutely amazing! I love the use of metal and rubber, so freakin' unique!! Those weaves seem so time consuming, and complicated. Great job!!
26  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: colorful granny square throw on: May 25, 2009 02:06:20 PM
Awesome job, those colours are perfect for summer (and cheering up a nasty winter day!!) Thank you for posting that link too, it will surely help on my next granny square project!

And I must agree, that quilt is so amazingly retro-chic!
27  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need help with 63 easy to crochet stitches pattern on: February 21, 2009 01:09:39 PM
Have you worked out the whole square, or panicked when it started shifting?? I did that square ages ago, and recall something along that kind of problem, but it straightened itself out once I got to the second half of the pattern, where those "V's" (for lack of a better term) started heading back the opposite way.

Have you tried blocking the square to straighten it out? That might be an option too.

Hope you can get it worked out!
28  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: first project post, a bit pic heavy? on: February 14, 2009 04:00:25 PM
That's a great idea. I've been carrying all my random things around in a big ziploc. This has WAY more personality!!!

I've done a couple of those starghans now, and I have to say I've been thinking of jazzing them up a little. YOu did a really good job with that one! and I am with you on the cotton, not my personal preference, but my Mom made my DD one in cotton, and she LOVES it!
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Just a blue hat on: February 09, 2009 07:00:09 PM
That's a really nice finish with the fleece inside. The grey goes well with the blue too! Great job.
30  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Super Ruffly Blanket of DOOM!! on: February 04, 2009 09:02:36 PM
You did an amazing job on that balnket. Did you REALLY pull tit off in only 2 weeks!!!? And that ruffle edge is to die for! W.O.W.
