I got my angel package from tlh878!! Sorry it took so long to post the pictures...

Ok, so here it is!

I got colourful dryer balls, a very pretty cherry sandwich wrap (which has been used since the picture was taken!), reusable pads (in white for my very allergic self!) and condo cards!

I took some more pictures of the condo cards just to show y'all! I've been wanting some reminders not to spend so much (I'm a compulsive and emotional buyer) so I asked for something that I could put in my wallet to remind me not to listen to that voice in my head saying "BUY BUY BUY, YOU NEEEEEEEEED THIS!". I also said in my questionnaire that I was trying to save to buy a condo. Tlh878 put 2 and 2 together and made me condo cards!

Thanks so much tlh878!!

I got my package from Loops!! I feel amazingly spoiled, you'll see why!!

This is the whole content of the package:

In the extras I got a gazillion bars of chocolate and mint hot chocolate! A heat magazine (it was the first time ever I read a gossip magazine, and it's hilarious! I'm not sure the writers take themselves seriously, but if they don't it's even more funny! Or maybe it's just British humour and American magazine wouldn't be as funny, I don't know...)

I also got two awesome Moss and Aunt Irma-Jen pillows! I decided to use the Aunt Irma as an indicator for my bf for my PMS moods, so he'll know to stay away from me!

An amazing destruction of the Internet painting

The arrow is actually in 3d and sits on top of the button.

Mix and match earrings:

I'm wearing the long Moss and the Roy ones right now!

And a Moss mug!!!

Thank you so much Loops! I'm glad we have the same sense of humour and thought of almost the same things!  Grin

5  Nice seam and it's ugly step-sister in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Imagine on: May 17, 2010 07:48:58 AM
Hi Craftsters!

I'm knitting these adorable elf shoes for my niece (I'm going to call them either fairy shoes or princess shoes though, she's such a girly girl!)

Anyway, I've knitted another pair of these for a swap but I keep getting the same problem: I have one nice seam on one side and one very ugly seam on the other side. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm pretty sure I'm following the pattern...

Nice seam:

It gets botchy near the end, I think that's just because I didn't have a lot of stitches left on my needles and they were far apart.

Ugly seam:

Look at that! That's the other side of the SAME shoe. From my experience, after the fulling, this is going to look like a purled seam, with little bumps.

Here is the pattern. It seems to be only available on Ravelry:
I don't know if you can access it if you're not logged into Ravelry.

In case some of you can't see it, here's the part of the pattern at cause here:
Divide the sts in half on your needles: half for the sole and half for the instep. Knit across all
the sole sts. Wrap the next st (the first st of the instep) and turn.
*P across all the sole sts. Wrap the next st (the first st of the instep) and turn.
K across all the sole sts.
K together the first 2 sts of the instep, k to last 2 sts of the instep, ssk.
K together the first 2 sts of the sole, k to last 2 sts of the sole, ssk. Wrap next st (the first st of the
instep) and turn.
Repeat from * until 8 sts remain4 for the instep and 4 for the sole. K2tog, ssk, k2tog, ssk.

The "wrapping" is described as:
w&t: Wrap and turn.
From the right (knit) side:
Slip the next st purlwise. Bring yarn to the front of your work. Slip the slipped st back to the left needle and return the yarn to the back of your work. Turn.
From the wrong (purl) side:
Slip the next st purlwise. Bring the yarn to the back of your work. Slip the slipped st back to the left needle and bring the yarn to the front of your work. Turn.

Can anybody tell what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks so much in advance!

Your pictures just looked so delicious and the recipe so easy, I had to try for myself!

I did it with my BF. The 18 hour rising is a bit odd for me. I did the mixing, but then, 18 hours later I was at work, so my BF cooked it.

Here was the loaf when I got home from work (already a slice taken out of it!  Cheesy)

Here's the texture:

It really looks like the local traditional bakery's bread.

And I made a soup to go with it! Nothing better than bread with soup! Yum!

Thanks so much for the inspiration to try bread and the easy recipe!!

I have a question. One of you loaves looks like it has cheese in it. When did you put the cheese in? After the first rise (after the 18 hours but before the 2 additional rising hours)? Or at the very end before you put it in the oven?

I RECEIVED!! And I don't want to disappoint any of you, but it's absolutely the BEST package ever!  Grin

Ok first, I received it during the day, and when I got home, it was waiting for me on the little table by the entrance. My BF hadn't said anything!  Cheesy It was all wrapped up and everything!

Here's the whole loot, still unwrapped:


Beautiful glass bead magnets, my favourite kind!:

And the box it was wrapped in had little dry flowers in it! (I've been wanting to do some paper lately, these are going in a batch for sure!):

Awesome plant decorations! (Can you believe it was Moxy's first poly clay project?!?!)

Here they are in action. The flower and the toadstool went into my peace lily. My bromelia needs much fairy dust as it is constantly on the verge of dying. So I put the fairy there to protect it, along with Lego Batman, who was already there.

Next, the awesome spoon wand. I've been wanting one of these for so long, and this one is so beautiful!

The details on the head:

The spoon was hand carved and decorated with buttons and a charms (how did you know I loved buttons? Did I tell you? I don't remember!)

So pretty and fun to play with!

And finally, a faerie catching kit!
The instructions, beautifully calligraphied (is that a word?):

And the box:

Which is actually... the most awesome fairy house! (The pictures absolutely not do it justice, it's really awesome!)

(I hadn't seen the table was upturned in this one)

Complete with four poster bed.

Dining table, mirror and feathery soft carpeting!

Ack! I already caught one!

jk! (It totally looks like one of my friends, haha!)

Thank you so much Moxy! You are so talented, I love everything you made me!!!

This is really exciting!

Brunette Bombshell what a package! It's huge! I love the recipe book and the hutch!

I sent my package to Moxy Fire today. It's in a box with holes in it and, I didn't notice at first but, we can see part of the items. I thought the peep holes made nice teaser pics!  Grin

Unfortunately, we can't see the nicest item (in my opinion). Don't worry Moxy, there is purple and black somewhere in there!   Wink

9  Two cards (thank you & birthday) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Imagine on: March 14, 2009 08:07:50 AM
So I had a couple of situations that needed cards lately.

First, I needed a thank you card for a very nice family who opened their home to us while we were on a trip.

I took a pre made blank card and just glued the decorations on the front part. The inside was blank so that everybody could write their personal message to this family (we were seven!).

Next, is a birthday card for my Mother-in-law (whos birthday is today! Cheesy ) I made it with the help of my boyfriend.  She has a nickname that vaguely resembles the word owl in French and I had a bit of leftover scrapbooking paper with a owl on it, so we used this. I glued a ribbon to hide where the paper ends (that was the total width of my leftover!).

The inside is less coordinated. We used some pastel letter stickers I had (we didnt have time to go shopping for supplies, so we just used what I had!) and a plain green paper for the pocket. I also embossed a trim on the bottom and the top and made a little Shrinky Dinks goldfish (shes a Pisces).

We are going to be a bunch at this birthday party (14 total, including kids) so instead of making a huge card for everybody to write in (this family likes to write big messages), I glued a pocket inside the card and everybody will write their messages on scrapbooking tags!

You can tell I like green right?  Tongue
