Prompt: December Battle -Grumpy Cat-
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: I hate you Orange Bunny
Brief Description: I just finished making this for my daughters friends birthday which was months ago. I cannot explain just how much I hate this adorable little bunny I made... but it's a lot. While crafting this I was grumpier than Grumpy Cat could ever be which is why I am using it for the battle.

Project Name: Velociraptor Onesie
Brief Description: As many of you know I am currently pregnant with my second child and when the gender was unknown my husband and I referred to our child as Velociraptor. So when we found out last week we were having our second daughter a friend of mine insisted we make a onesie with this quote from the first Jurassic Park movie. I have never applied an applique to anything before so this was a first for me, thanks for the help SBC!

Oh my goodness people! So many awesome projects being posted, I've been trying to keep up and wanted to try to catch up on commenting but I just don't think that will happen. In fact I don't know how much I'll be able to participate in the games in the coming months. There is a lot going on at the QH/SBC household, our parents are coming to visit in a few weeks (cue scary music). Plus I will be working on a HUGE 'project' that will be eating up a lot of my time.

In fact I would like to take the Nautical cross stitch off my research projects and propose a new one!

Research Project Name: Velociraptor
Team: Multimedia
Brief Description: I have already been working on this 'project' for 6 weeks now and have 34 more weeks to go! I think this will qualify for epic points Wink




OK I for real do want to get rid of the nautical cross stitch and here is the real proposal for the new research project:

Research Project Name: 4th Doctor Scarf
Team: Multimedia
Brief Description: I have already started knitting on this beast and by my calculations it will end up around 20 ft! I am so excited to finish it and snuggle with it, not that I'll need to snuggle with it in Arizona Cheesy

6  Super Sloth in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by QueenHobo on: September 02, 2017 12:31:57 AM
I made this little guy for my big sister. She is obsessed with sloths and when I ran across this pattern I couldn't pass up making one of them for her. She is still trying to come up with a name for her, she wants something that starts with an 'S' but keeps shooting down all my suggestions.

7  om nom nom in Crochet: Completed Projects by QueenHobo on: September 02, 2017 12:28:23 AM
I made this for a friend of my moms. Her son is having a birthday soon and likes sharks. I changed the teeth a bit  and did the crocodile (shark-o-dile, hee hee) stitch.

I wasn't very excited to make this at first, the beginning of the blanket is very tedious, (dc back and forth for just over 40 rows) but once I got past that I really enjoyed myself!

Prompt: September - Superhero -
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: Engeneering
Project Name: Super Sloth
Brief Description: I was looking around for some fun projects to inspire me for some of the prompts and I ran across these itty bitty sloths. I knew SBC would love them so I sneakily made this little guy up for her and added the cape to make her into Super Sloth! Of course she's probably not a very effective superhero since it would take her a very VERY long time to get to anyone in danger.... but she's cute and that's all that matters right?

I made up the pattern for the cape by myself:

1: sc across the neck of the sloth to desired length, ch1
2: inc in first st, sc to end, inc in last st
3&4: repeat R2
5-8: sc across
9: repeat R 2
10&11: sc across

sc around the sides, 3 sc in the corners.
at the top of the cape do 3 dc in the corner then 2 dc in each st across, 3 dc in corner
sc around, 3 sc in corner, slst then finish off.

Prompt: September Battle- Classic Movie Monster
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: Brain Power, Engineering
Project Name: Jaws
Brief Description: I made this blanket for a friend of my moms, she has a little boy who has a birthday coming up and he really wanted a shark blanket. I tweaked the pattern for the teeth and instead of doing a combination of single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet I thought the crocodile (shark-o-dile) stitch would look much better. So using a smaller hook (G) I made a chain just a little longer than the width of the shark mouth (135) and did 2 double crochet, chain 1, skip 1, single crochet, chain 1, skip 1, 2 double crochet.... across. Then I single crocheted across the top, making sure to have 95 single crochets. Finally I used red yarn to attach the teeth to the rest of the blanket! As for why I am claiming brain power, it took me a LOT of it to math out how many to chain across for the teeth. And math hurts my brain!

Prompt: RED ALERT
Team: Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Cable Bookmark
Brief Description: I started crafting back in middle school when SBC taught me how to knit scarves. I've come a long way since then, for one I'm able to knit holding both needles in my hands instead of wedging one between my hip and leg! For two I just learned how to cable... thanks SBC!

Prompt: July - 5 Gnashing Teeth -
Team: Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Shark Hat
Brief Description: I had made this hat intending to give it to my nephew but I just don't like how to teeth turned out on it. So I guess it'll wind up in Beast Jr.s dress up drawer!

Prompt: August - 1 Mermaid Tears -
Team: Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Tater Salad
Brief Description: Mine and SBC's mom makes the best potato salad in the world! A few months ago I was craving some and called her to ask how she made it and since then SBC has begged me to make it at least once a week. Of course every time I make it she complains that it is never salty enough, which is how this fits the prompt... stupid salt!
Project Picture:




Prompt: July - 3 Armored Scales -
Team: Clan of the Makers
Bonus Points: Brain Power
Project Name: Dragon Egg
Brief Description: This thing took me forever to make! The pattern is really simple after you get used to it, but I also had to learn how to make the 'scales' and I had never done the crocodile stitch so that was fun.
Project Picture:




I'm pretty sure that is the last of it for me. I have crafted ALL THE THINGS! I honestly thought I wasn't going to make it but having Beast Jr at school all day gave me a lot of extra free time Smiley
