1  Luck O' the Chaircat in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: March 04, 2018 04:04:11 PM
Legend has it there is a pot of gold buried at the end of a rainbow. I get the impression Chaircat Mao is not a believer of such things.

2  Thai Buddha Bowl in Vegetarian / Vegan by pottermouth on: March 04, 2018 03:53:00 PM
While looking around for a quick Thai peanut sauce, I discovered this recipe for a Buddha Bowl that is out of this world. The peanut sauce is pretty delish, too! I blended all of the sauce ingredients to make it smooth then poured it into a squeeze bottle. I had all but the cilantro on hand, substituted mixed greens for the romaine, and because there was leftover brown rice in the fridge, I used that. It is a versatile recipe that I plan on making regularly, especially with the dreaded summer approaching.

3  Matchbox Alice Pop Up Book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by pottermouth on: February 22, 2018 05:15:17 PM
I finally got around to making a matchbox sized book, something I had been wanting to do for a while. The outside of the matchbox is uncluttered and simple, but the inside is kinda neat. (Also very easy to do.)

The book inside the matchbox:

The faces of the Cheshire cats spin around:

The pop-ups throughout the book are made the same way- an image is folded in three places and glued on the pages. That's it.

Cut out your image and make a fold along the center. Fold in the two ends:

Glue one end to page:

And apply glue to other folded end:

Close the book and hold, hold, hold.

So easy!

That is a ton of pictures for such a wee thing!

Aaaahhhh! craftylittlemonkey sent me a fantastic package stuffed to the gills with goodies! She must have had an undetectable extension charm on the envelope, I tell ya!

First, in its entirety:

I am IN LOVE with the scrappy bag and all of the fun fabrics, plus it will hold many balls of yarn. Yay!

The purchased item included a squishy hook in a size I did not have, stitch markers, a neat yarn/thread cutter (airplane safe), and a little tag that says "100% chance of wine".  Cheesy

What's in here?

Oh, cute! A Pass the Piglets game!

Zero points on first roll... Tongue

And finally, the most perfect stitch markers. You know me so well, clm!!!  Cheesy

Thank you, dear friend, opening this has made my day! Going to go grab the girls and Pass the Piglets!

It is on the To Do list.  Cheesy lindyv321 made one and sent it to us- we were stoked to begin using it this year- and if ever I get around to making a few they won't be nearly as nice!

Does Chaircat Mao have a calendar? She should and I want one Smiley.

We've all been pestering her for a calendar, lol. Maybe she'll succumb to the pressure, it would be so terrific.

6  Bouquetcat Mao in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: February 13, 2018 08:27:34 AM
Chaircat Mao looks kind of sweet in her hat for Valentine's Day.

But she had some words about it and they weren't loving words.  Sad

She more or less blew off the photo shoot

And said, "Just like me, Valentine's Day bites."

thanate's package arrived yesterday- a beautiful mini art quilt! There is a shimmering tree with the tiniest shrinky dink images of characters from my favorite stories. It is truly a work of art. The weather has been dark and rainy here, so it was impossible to get decent pictures.

I also received a bookmark!

Thank you for the great swap, thanate! I love my new art quilt!

8  Chillycat Mao in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: January 03, 2018 12:04:26 PM
Baby, it is cold outside! In all her 14 years Chaircat Mao has never seen snow, so for her first encounter we made sure she's was appropriately dressed.

She had enough after 37 seconds.

Hope everyone is staying warm!

9  Chaircat Mao's Holiday Sweater in Winter Holidays by pottermouth on: December 23, 2017 09:40:18 AM
Why is it no one appreciates a lovely hand-knit sweater?

Tolerating you all year long and this is the gift I get?

I bet it makes me look fat, too.


That's okay because I got something for you also. I left it on your pillow.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday!

10  Make Your Own Retro Block Elves in Winter Holidays by pottermouth on: December 19, 2017 04:19:54 PM
How many of you had grandmas that made these cuties? I know mine did, but the "J" elf had gone missing, leaving little "O" and "Y" all alone! I went digging through the kids' wooden blocks (the same ones I played with as a kid) with the intention of making a replacement for the AWOL elf. Don't you know there was not a J in the entire bin! So, we made NOEL elves instead. Now we have OY NOEL.  Cheesy

Here's a simple pattern so you and your kids can make your own. It is pretty straightforward but I took progress pictures anyway.


Wooden Alphabet Blocks
1" Wooden Beads for Head
Pom Poms
Pattern (not really necessary)

Cut out arms, legs, and hats from felt. I also cut out circular felt collars with pinking shears. Paint simple faces on wooden beads.

Hot glue legs and arms in place.

Add pom poms to feet and hands and glue collar on top of arms. Add a ring of glue to head and wrap hat around head. Fold end of hat over and add more glue to hold in place. Glue pom pom to end of hat. Attach head.

Enjoy your little elves!
