1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / I need food ideas in the shape of a house... on: December 04, 2011 03:50:24 PM
This weekend I made the hot dog/ spaghetti Octopi for my man and his boys. I was a hero. I wasn't sure who liked them more,  my man or his boys (6 and 8 yrs)... lol. So I asked them what they wanted next weekend, and without missing a beat the 6 year old says, "Something shaped like a house!"

PLEASE... throw me some house shaped food ideas. Lunch or dinner, not dessert:)

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / wee little kid knits....NOW WITH PATTERN :D on: May 04, 2005 02:06:48 PM
I didn't have enough yarn for a full sweater and my daughter wanted something out of the purple loopy fuzzy yarn. The aforementioned yarn is a grand total of 13.7yrds. yes folks thats the whole skein for $5.99 ( i didn't buy it, it was a gift). not even enough for a scarf....so I made a little girlie shrug.
But its way darn cute and she loves it.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My Chillin's Easter getups. not ur avg... on: March 27, 2005 06:56:14 AM
I asked my kiddos what they wanted to wear for Easter, since I was fresh out of ideas. My son decided he wanted camo pants and a hobbit shirt. Sure why not, says I, that'll be simple. So here he is complete with coonskin cap:

And my daughter wanted a skirt that 'went way up' when she spins. So I did a simple pink polkadot circle skirt. I decided instead of a regular hem, I'd have a bit of fun with the serger. And what better way to accessorize than with striped tights:

and a detail of the serged hem with decrative silk threads:

They both love their outfits, so that makes me happy!
Thanks for looking!!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / What to make a little boy... on: February 28, 2005 06:57:11 PM
I make my kids' Easter outfits every year. There are a million different ways to reinvent the dress so I am all set for my daughter, but for my 4 yr old boy I am stumped. Last year I made him a very renaissance looking vest. The year before it was a vest and matching bow tie. the yrs before....yup you guessed it, some sort of vest. I want to do something fun and different, but still semi 'dressy.'  ANY thoughts would really rock...
