And for those of us who end up with Random Bits o' Metal in our hands/feet/whatever... I keep a high powered magnet around. It may hurt some, but it's better than explaining why you've got a bit of a needle sticking outta your hand...

That is a great idea, but it gave me such a funny Wile E. Coyote type visual that I giggled out loud!

All the ones I've seen were in the kitchen under the counter, whereas most of ours are huge capacity ones that have their own little room, although we do have smallish apartment stackable ones. I'm sure the bigger ones exist in England but I never saw one. I love those kitchen ones though! So convenient! I always moaning about having to find coins and drag my laundry out, if I had a little washer in my apartment it would be so nice. I heard there's a new washer/dryer in one machine though, from LG or Sony, so maybe we should both do an appliance swap with Japan!  Cheesy

I've only heard of using Ritz crackers for the apple pie, it's actually pretty good!

Oh maybe it was ritz. I just can't get my mind over the crackers = apples conundrum.

Sea of Stars, I'm a little intimidated because I've seen the great stuff you make, but I will make you an owl stuffy. I love owls!

Here are my wishes:

I am desperate for Arm warmers/fingerless gloves, any kind (my first winter in Minnesota and I am already freezing!)

A Hat: I love this one https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=57584.0

             Or a Chicken Viking hat  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21342.0

             Or a Panta https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51351.0

             Or a Hallowig from Knitty (!) http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATThallowig.html

             Or a Pixie Hat https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=25996.0;topicseen
             Or a soft black Kittyville hat with earflaps for super cold days either knit or fleece is fine)

             Or a baby Yoda hat for my nephew (who isn't quite born yet but I already want to spoil like mad!)

             Or one with skulls, stripes or something like that Thanks Orangeabsinthe!!!

                                      -  I have a pretty big head (and cold ears!)

A kimono fabric hobo bag like this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=56519.0 (I am in LOVE with the indigo/orange one!)

Or the necktie schoolbag (I love the burgundy/black/grey/paisley colored one but any colors will work) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45985.0;topicseen

Vintagey/kitschy embroidered or appliqued kitchen towels (fawns, mermaids, pinups, swallows, mexicana, cowgirls, pretty much anything from sublime stitching, my kitchen is green with accents in pink, orange,red, so anything will do!)

Decor items for my bedroom, which is pink and gold; something sexy, maybe 1920's, art nouveau, vintage nude, Japanese cherry blossom, something pretty and glam (I saw a gorgeous Louise Brooks embroidery on craftster https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=59537.0 ) or this Anthropologie frame: http://www.anthropologie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=8543&itemType=PRODUCT&iSubCat=451&iMainCat=381

Some kind of cute embroidery or other wall art for my bathroom, which is kind of a modern take on shabby chic, in light blue and white: a mermaid or nude maybe?

Anthropologie inspired items for bathroom, bedroom, kitchen or accessories!

Porn by numbers

That gorgeous Anthropologie vines scarf I keep seeing

Something Omiyage

Something Day of the Dead or Loteria inspired

A stuffed black squirrel, either in the style of those felt monster/kitty type toys or amigurumi. I never saw a black squirrel till I moved here, but there's one on my street. His name is Jimmy. He refuses to be photographed. It would be extra funny if it was hbig enough to wear a catsized spiked collar, since Jimmy is a bit of a badass (and has recently taken to spelling his name Jimi) (I am way to involved with my local squirrel community!)

a knitted uterus (cause...why not...) (especially one that could contain a heatable bag of seeds & lavender for crampish times)

the infamous lipstick girl cozy https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39172.0

monster slippers (size 8-9)

A cool microscope slide necklace (I'm learning to make these but haven't got it yet)

Something Bollywood related

A Gromit (knit, felt, anything) (Sean the sheep or Feathers McGraw would be fun too)

A bowl's worth of funny fruit/veggies or eggs (Yay! Thanks Obssessed!) (knit, crochet, felt, as long as it's kitschy)

A vintagey rectangular tablecloth (pm me for dimensions) I love all the  ones on Anthropologie, or a cowgirl print, or anything fun, really. My DR is grey & mocha with red chairs but any colors will work.

My Grandma has told stories of making them into "Mock Apple Pie" during the Depression, but I am a little skeptical/horrified by the idea!

For US craftsters, lemon curd can usually be found in the either the jelly/jam aisle or the "imported food" aisle of major grocery stores, or places like world market, etc. Or it's easy to make (and impresses people as gifts because it seems so gourmet and rare here.)

5 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
4 lemons, zested and juiced
1 stick butter, cut into pats and chilled

Add enough water to a medium saucepan to come about 1-inch up the side. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, combine egg yolks and sugar in a medium size metal bowl and whisk until smooth, about 1 minute. Measure citrus juice and if needed, add enough cold water to reach 1/3 cup. Add juice and zest to egg mixture and whisk smooth. Once water reaches a simmer, reduce heat to low and place bowl on top of saucepan. (Bowl should be large enough to fit on top of saucepan without touching the water.) Whisk until thickened, approximately 8 minutes, or until mixture is light yellow and coats the back of a spoon. Remove promptly from heat and stir in butter a piece at a time, allowing each addition to melt before adding the next. Remove to a clean container and cover by laying a layer of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the curd. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
