Congrats, Wildfyre!

Stay safe, phoenixfiredesigns!

And, yes, Eamea, we'd totally be friends IRL!  Cheesy

I can't believe next week is the end... probably should start working on that scrapbook...  D:

Love the quilt! It looks amazing! Congrats on getting it done!  I'm signing up for September after being absent for way longer than I thought I would. I really enjoyed making the squares and have missed sewing...

I feel so... bad for winning so much.  Not enough to give it up, but still a little bad!

I'm shocked SBC wasted even a single ticket on the yarn, I mean, of all the people here, it'll take her forever to use it.  It's not like she does that many yarn projects.....  Cheesy

I will try to get that sent out as soon as possible - this week might not be good (dr and dentist appts as well as far too many meetings!) but I'm pretty sure I should be able to get it out Monday or Tuesday...

My two couch fox (pillows) are sad another fox pillow won't be joining them...  Sad

Oh my goodness, SBC, that's going to look cool, but yeah, take forever! Good luck, can't wait to see the finished product!

Nice, roler!  I had a friend who used some of the wire on a costume once, I'm terrified to try to use it on anything, I'm sure I'd ruin it by being too impatient and stabbing it with a needle.  Plus, I've found clear thread really difficult to work with (I don't know if it's the brand I have or that I cut pieces so long, but ugh, the tangling!).

Have fun at the concert, and I hope the band sees and appreciates your hard work!

Pretty!  I like both versions, though I think the necklace one is my favorite.  Cheesy

I need a shark blanket like that for next Shark Week!  I just don't know if I have the patience to crochet a me-sized one...

Goodness, so many people off to such a fast start!  I made some plans for two of my projects so far, but haven't started anything yet.  I'm loving the prompts for this month!

Calabaza asked about the pumpkin snickerdoodles recipe, and it is here: http://www.cookingclassy.com/pumpkin-snickerdoodles/  I totally recommend them!

Two last minute projects, the one to finish off CRAFTING ALL THE THINGS (I think) and a zap I snuck in.

Prompt: August Battle Royale - University
Team: Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Cookies!
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Don't get me wrong, my mother taught me the basics of cooking very young, but my foray into baker and insane cookie-maker was self-taught.  I've been experimenting and messing up cookie recipes on a pretty much weekly basis for the last few years, culminating in some failures-turned-out-tasty when I had to go crazy with substitutions.  I've learned what the difference between a ungreased, greased, and parchment paper baking sheet will do, that shortening makes fluffier cookies than butter (but less tasty, if you ask me) and that over-beating with batter makes your cookies flatter.  And also that you can make cookies with some pretty weird things - bacon, sauerkraut, cottage cheese, tomato soup....

But these here are an old, tradition chocolate chip cookie made with a bag of three types of chip (milk, dark, and white, I think).  Yummy!

Project Picture:

Prompt: Zap #1
Team: Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points: Engineering
Project Name: Copper Cleaner
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: I love my copper-bottomed pans, but the copper can be... difficult to keep clean.  And copper cleaner is both a bit expensive as well as probably horrible for the environment and terribly smelly.  Then I found out that salt and vinegar (not just good on chips!) will completely clean copper!  You can sprinkle the salt on the bottom of the pan and rub it with a vinegar-soaked cloth, or....

Mix equal parts salt and flour.  Add vinegar until you have a pudding-like paste.  Store in an airtight container!

Project Picture:

The product:

The in-progress shot (please don't judge my tarnished pan bottom!) - this was just applying it, no rubbing yet:


Be sure to wash the vinegar off the pan afterwards with dish soap.  Your house may smell a little of dying easter eggs if you clean a lot of pans, but I find it's more pleasant than actual copper cleaner, and it works amazingly.  I think I got this off the show "How Clean is Your House", they had a bunch of cleaning tips and I did so love that show...

I have no idea what I'll offer, right now I have some Amis, ATCs, and supplies. I had hoped to get more ready, but...  Argh, things always get in the way.  Maybe some day I'll have a shop full of all the ideas I've come up with!
