1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Arid climate = dry cakes? on: December 30, 2009 09:12:50 AM
The age old question, how do I fix a dry and crumbly cake?

I live in a desert climate and I know that because of it I have to add more water to the dough when I want to make breads, I was wondering if because of the arid climate a similar fix may be needed for my cakes?
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / I'm Julia Child, bon appetit! on: December 12, 2009 12:07:45 AM
I've been on a kind of Julia Child kick, so when Julie and Julia came out Tuesday, I decided to celebrate by making a crocheted tribute to this fantastic woman.

I'm going to give her to my mom for Christmas.
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Need help with hair on a crocheted doll. on: December 07, 2009 10:04:16 AM
So I'm going to crochet Julia Child for my mother for Christmas, but I can't figure out how to get her curly hair right. If I do the fringe hair thing it'll come out too straight, and I'm not sure where to go from here.

I was thinking about checking out joann's to see if they had any fun fur fabric that would do, or I've also heard about doll wigs, what are those like?

Any suggestions?

(here are some pictures for reference)



4  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Elphaba: Wicked Witch of the West! on: November 05, 2009 08:44:55 AM
Enter Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West!

I love the musical Wicked (and the book, but I love the musical a lot more) and my aunt suggested that I try to crochet her.

I tried to distinguish her from being just another witch by giving her some curves and braiding her hair (which also helped in the hair department, hair is my least favorite thing to do when I make dolls.)

The shoulder poofs happened on accident but then I realized that her dress has them! They also helped to distinguish her as the Wicked Witch of the West.

I'm considering doing a few other theatre icons to keep her company, I'd have to do the Phantom of course, Sweeney Todd... and maybe Mark from Rent?


Just to get one with the braid
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Wild Thing Doll on: September 29, 2009 12:21:31 AM
My friend embroidered me a pillow with a scene from Where the Wild Things Are, and so I made this for her! I made about seven trips to Joann's in one week getting everything planned and prepared, it actually worked up pretty quickly though once I started(well... quickly for me...)

I think the plants look like they could be from the book.

I was also greatly inspired by this http://Sugarcoatidli3z.deviantart.com/art/Max-ami-from-WTWTA-119861729

I think I'm going to bring him along when I go see the movie.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / I need to bond some felt to my project. on: September 21, 2009 12:15:13 PM
I'm currently crocheting one of the wild things from Where the Wild Things Are and I decided to make the eyes out of felt. My problem is I can't figure out how to get them to stick. I don't want to sew them because I don't want the outline of the stitching to show, and I did a test of gluing the felt to a crocheted surface and the eyes just fell off (I used Aleene's Fabric Fusion glue.)

Any suggestions?
