This is gorgeous!  You did an absolutely marvelous job at joining the knit and the mesh--that would have made me cry!

This is fantastic!

So I started covering and decorating a new top using supplies I was gifted for Christmas (I heart my family!)  Anyway, it's not completed yet, but I'm dying to share it anyway!  The one side is largely completed, and I feel like that counts for something.  I'm going to add more of those teeny tiny seed beads around the pearls, to tie all the gold tones together (and the base of it really is gold, not brown, stupid camera).

Oooh, so pretty!  And lucky you for being able to attend and perform at that event!

Anyone else experienced this?  You see something awesome on Pinterest, say to yourself, "I can make that!" and then not really like it?  You don't hate it, it's not worth throwing away, but it gets stuck in the freezer for an emergency, or when you have more time to tweak it?  I experienced this with a vegetable chowder recipe.  The problem, really, was a lack of seasoning (easily fixed) and no blender/food processor, to adjust the consistency.  Not as easy a fix, without a trip to the store and buying a new appliance.  So that poor chowder has sat in my freezer for about a month, waiting patiently.  Well, last weekend, I tried a new recipe!  A roasted garlic white bean hummus.  It tasted delicious, but it wasn't what I'd call hummus in texture.  Lightbulb!  My plan is to thin down the "hummus" which is really just a bean paste with roasted garlic, with veggie stock (which would make a delicious soup all on its own), blend it together with about half the chowder (in my new blender!) and then add the rest of the chowder for texture.  I will definitely post everything if it comes out, because it is sure to be delicious.  I find soups and stews the easiest things to "fix", because it's just a matter of adding different things, usually.

Anyone else ever come across a failed recipe that they fixed successfully?

Man, I wish I had more time.  I have a craft in mind, but I don't think I'll be able to fit it into my schedule this month!  I'm still tucking the idea away for later, though!

These are really beautiful!  I can empathize with fraying thread (from making fringe), that's aggravating, but it was well worth it!  Both finished products are gorgeous!

I think it's for the dust.  I know my MIL's machine just sits in her closet for years at a time.  If she didn't cover it, the dust would be monumental.

Oh, yum!  I bet these would be great at any summer party, and it sounds so easy!  Thanks!  I'm also making a note to pay better attention to what you pin!
