1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Coral Reef (pic heavy) on: August 29, 2011 12:07:59 PM
My Mom and I have been working with fellow crocheters on a satellite reef of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project for the past few weeks. These are the pieces that my Mom and I have created:

This was my first attempt with hyperbolic crochet.

This was Mom's first piece.

Our pieces side by side.

My second one, this time with fun fur.

Mom's totally awesome brain coral.

Another side by side shot.

My anemone pillars.

Mom is working on some neat coils that I will post soon. We have had so much fun working on this reef.
Thanks for looking!

Great idea.  Thought:  could it be put in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes to warm the beans?  The warmth could be very therapeutic.  Especially inbetween typing sessions if you role your wrist on it.

Just a thought!! 

That's a great idea. I will have to try that out this week!

After several weeks of spreadsheet work, my wrist has been killing me. So I got out some scrap yarn and a bag of dry lima beans and made this:

It's just a single crochet and I switched out the colors randomly.

I like it a lot and plan to make one a little smaller for my boyfriend. He needs one that is a little lower since he plays a lot of games online and has to move quickly Smiley

Thanks for looking!

What an apposite gift, how kind of you, they are lovely and I wouldn't worry about the wonky edges, they don't detract at all.

Thanks so much for the lovely comment! That makes me feel better Smiley
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Canasta-themed fabric coasters on: June 28, 2011 07:56:51 AM
I made this set of four coasters for my Aunt and Uncle. They have played Canasta for years with my parents, so I thought it would be fun to make coasters that they could use while they played (and when I play with them). The fabric came from a pair of pajama pants that I had that kept shrinking in the wash. So I cut the pants down to shorts and used the leftover material.

I used this pattern: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2009/07/fabric-coasters.html

I had a little trouble with them as they were a stretchy material and kept sliding as I sewed it together, so some of the edges are a little wonky, but I like them a lot. I presented them to my Aunt and Uncle when my Mom and I went down to visit last week. I can't wait to make more coasters and give them as gifts!

That is totally awesome! I love the turrets! I have been thinking about making the personality cores. Thanks for sharing!
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Old heavy tape dispenser: what to do with it? on: March 24, 2011 10:48:41 AM
So I was cleaning my desk at work today and found this old tape dispenser (seriously I think it is older than me). It is missing the piece inside that actually holds the tape, so we were going to throw it away. I could not bring myself to do it. It is going home with me. It is weighted, making it nice and heavy. I was thinking it could make a fun doorstop for my screen door, but I want to make it cuter/more fun. Any ideas or other suggestions that could shed light on its potential? Thanks!

I will look for it and post it this weekend! Thanks!
