21  Re: Traveling Scarf Swap Gallery! (Round 10) in The Swap Gallery by elociNNicole on: July 20, 2009 11:01:50 AM
I sent mocha's scarf onto puppy_girl today.  Following myklia's beautiful block knit with bulky/super bulky yarn my WW malabrigo wasn't strong enough to hold shape without becoming super narrow.  I had to double strand it  Embarrassed with some creamy acrylic which felt sinful.  (malabrigo and acrylic held together?!?!)  The acrylic is at least very soft and did its job to give the block some strength.  Hope you don't mind. 

okay, enough of my rambling.  On to the pic.  (sorry, couldn't get a overall shot) 

and following myklia's block.

Whoops!  I completely forgot to add pics of my block on scotskipper's scarf. 


Here we go then:

Yarn is a lovely handspun that I received in a swap with craftster member RhymeswOrange.  It is lovely and the pink isn't quite as shocking as in photo. 

Overall pic, standing on couch...

Here is adorable OTT from kwality570.  I LOVE it!  So cute and finely made.  On to the pics:

She chose my 'Schnozberries' theme and the house pincushion was inspired by a very similar item on my wist.



And just for fun, in its new home:  Cheesy Cheesy

Thank You again Leann!  It is perfect and I LOVE it so much!

Picture of my addition to dichotomy's scarf.  I used a simple seed stitch with stockinette:

Entire scarf:

Yarns I used. I believe the green is a bamboo/silk blend and the multi-colored is a cotton/cotton blend. (note to self, save labels!!!)  Roll Eyes :

My apologies to deadbathducky for not getting these pictures up sooner.  Life gets a bit crazy at times, doesn't it?  On to the goodies!

Almost a group shot as some of the items are not pictured here  Wink  Very soft yarn, comic computer programs, adorable handmade box with little horse keychain:

The bottle holds an adorable needle felted bunyip!  This miniature bunyip lives in the bottle to contain their magical goodness but I want to break this little lady out!  (my cat would probably eat her if I did, so it is probably a good thing that she is contained.)

Deadbathducky also included a bunch of brochures, maps and pamphlets from Australia.  My favorite of the lot were a couple of pages from the "Australian Home Journal" from May, 1962.  I spent another 30 minutes or so looking at it again and again just when I took pictures.  It is really quite fabulous and also included a pattern for a lovely frock.  (their word, not mine. haha) 

A strange device that calculates ovulation that "offers every modern marriage the opportunity to consider economic and health problems." and comes "Highly recommended by the medical profession-approved by all religious groups."

Another bizarre ad is for "SOMETHING".  This product doesn't even state what it is.  Just that it is a 'trial treatment' and that is free. 

See, you will get "SOMETHING".

Thank You, deadbathducky!  I had so much fun with this swap!

Okay... on to the goodies I received from RhymeswOrange.  What an awesome lady she is!  This is going to be filled to the brim with photos and gushing with thank yous, so you have been warned!

Well, I don't really know where to start with the photos.  I did take one after emptying the box before unwrapping everything, but cannot find it.  Everything was wrapped so nicely with orange ribbon.  Lets start with my monsters (not easy to get all three to cooperate at the same time.):

a little closer of the eyeballs.  There are even some on the backs.  Too cute!  (This was on my wist!)

Three pirate shirts and a ship in a bottle from North Carolina.  The kids all loved their shirts (two of the three are wearing them today!)  The ship is nestled on a shelf in my craft area.

I LOVE the fabric for this!  A lovely reversible apron.  SOOOO pretty and so well done!
other side:

Fantastic glass monster stitch markers!  (Did you make these too?  very cute!!)

Can you believe that RhymeswOrange made me a dress??  Well she did!  I love it!  (At first I put it on backwards and it fit a little weird.. haha.  duh!  Turn it around!!!  hahahah)  Sorry, wasn't feeling up to a photo shoot of myself this morning with 8yo as photographer.  It fits me very nicely.  The fabric is to die for!  Love the print!

This moss 'N' was also directly from my wists!  Its arrival prompted my immediate attention to my neglected craft area.  This is its new home along with the beautiful handspun yarn (top 3 to the right of the 'N'.  Very pretty and very soft!)

What I was really hoping for: a new handbag!  I have such a difficult time buying handbags.  I don't like designer labels so I have always had a hard time buying a bag that even looked like a knockoff.  I LOVE this bag!  Perfect for me.  It is already filled up and was used yesterday.  Beautiful!

I am almost positive that I am forgetting stuff since there was just so much in this huge package!  There were also 2 pillows made from reclaimed wool and denim that the children claimed and are using while they are watching a movie right now and more wool roving.  Thank You very much RhymeswOrange, I feel so spoiled!

27  Re: Worlds Most Dangerous Chocolate Cake in Dessert by elociNNicole on: June 03, 2009 01:49:00 PM
Okay, I just went and ransacked my house looking for some chocolate... with no luck.  Then I remembered this recipe.

I used the original measurements except that I lowered the amount of oil and added a dash of vanilla, salt and baking soda.  But when it got time to add the egg, I realized that I didn't have any eggs!  ACK!  But.... I do have my starter.  (for sourdough bread and other breads and recipes if you are unfamiliar.) So I added a TBS of starter.  Cooked for 3 minutes and then turned out on a plate and added butterscotch chips to the top.

And while this one did not rise as much in the microwave, its texture is amazing.  Soooooo much closer to cake then the first one I made.  Good, I might even go as far to say, really good. 

Thanks again for sharing this fun little cake!

I received a lovely surprise from RhymeswOrange today completely out of the blue!  My first thought was, "What did I order now???"  haha. 

Wool roving!!  All wrapped up:

Opened up to slightly show the colors more.  It is practically impossible to capture the true vibrancy of this beautifully dyed wool by camera. 

I need to overcome my fear of spinning because this is just too beautiful for needle felting.  Maybe a little for wet felting but too soft and pretty to not have to knit something up.  I have total swap anxiety now!!!

Well, this is okay.  Not horrible but not fantastic.  It tastes like I made chocolate cake in the microwave.  I have definitely had worse cake then this though.  This would be terribly perfect for those overwhelming chocolate cravings or midnight snacks.  So the title is perfect.  This is one dangerous little cake.  

Mine didn't fluff up as much.  I also used 2 tbsp of oil and the pinch of baking powder like someone suggested.  The butterscotch chips are pretty good in it.

Mine also didn't come out of the cup in one piece.  I don't really care, it just doesn't look as 'pretty'.  That is, if you could call this lump of chocolate cake pretty.

My kids sure gobbled it up though.  I will unfortunately be making this again.  I just know I will.  Thanks for sharing and I hope you don't mind that I added my pictures to your post.  Just thought it would be fun to share what you've started.  Should probably post a picture of my dress size and then compare it in a month after I eat too many of these!   Cheesy Cheesy
