1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Woven Fabric Cat Baskets--Cat Approved! on: February 17, 2010 03:49:33 PM
This is fantastic!

I haven't got piping or coiling cord, but I don't think I need it... I have plastic bags galore.  I bet chain-stitching plastic bags a la those crochet grocery bags would give me exactly the sort of stuff that would be great for this project.

Now, to decide what color fabric to use?  THAT'S the hard part.  I kinda love the Japanese rice straw -- it looks like a kitty beehive!  But then I'd be tempted to make giant bumblebee pom-pom toys for the cats to play with...  ::giggle::

*gasp*  These are great!  Okay, if you're willing, I'd LOVE to hear more about your wonderous shrinky methods, and especially about those rings!

Wow, this is beautiful.  And I don't dig quilts.  The combination of bright colors and black (instead of pastels) is dramatic and gorgeous, and the crazy-quilt patches *mixed with* a standard, repeating pattern gives so much more visual interest than all-crazy or all-pattern would be.  Fabulous!

Beautiful skirt, fabulous tutorial!

My bellydance style uses flamenco-style skirts, so I hope you don't mind that I'm throwing the "bellydance" tag on here!

That variegated yarn is so pretty!  Lovely work.

I love fall colours, too.  Hmmm.  And my kitchen counter looks SO bare now that I've cleared off the paperwork.  *rubs hands together*  Now, where'd that Venetian lace pattern go?

I wonder if using one of the bio-plastic recipes from the book Green Plastics would result in a sturdier, water-resistant, bug-resistant stiffener?  Like the sugar solution, it would be all-natural, and uses common household items, like glycerine and corn starch... I think I'll make one of these bowls and try it -- I'll post back here with the results of the experiment!
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Artist's Brush Holder on: January 06, 2006 02:08:31 AM
I needed a way to store my brushes and pencils next to my drafting table, so I made this little hanging holder out of some scrap material I had lying around.  It works great, and looks lovely in my asian-themed studio.


Hope this helps explain how I made it:

Recently started painting in acrylics again, trying to get enough paintings done to put up in a friend's gallery.  So, this was the first one I finished:

Okay, I have some scraps of cat-beloved fun fur lying around... I've had to double-bag the stuff to keep the cat from living in it.  I'm going to see if I can figure this out based on your helpful mini-tut!  Wish me luck!   Grin
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Any Ideas For Share House Cooking?? on: November 10, 2005 10:54:42 AM
That's great!  Here's some ideas for you!

Soup and biscuits -- make a big pot of soup or stew, and make cheesy garlic biscuits (the recipe is on the bisquick box).  Plenty of food for everyone, and darned tasty.  If you want soup recipes, drop me a line.

Garlic Chicken Goodness http://www.livejournal.com/users/kittenpants/55523.html -- double the recipe and make it in a big rectangular casserole pan.  Cut into eight servings and serve with risotto and a salad.

Also, remember that Thanksgiving isn't the only time you can make a turkey or a ham!  Add mashed potatoes and a salad and you're in business.

Tacos -- make a big batch of seasoned meat, beans, rice, and get a bag of shredded cheese, some lettuce, a can of sliced black olives, some sour cream, salsa, and tortillas -- let people fill their own.

Breakfast for dinner!  Pancakes, scrambled eggs, and sausage

Go get a copy of Joy of Cooking.  It is literally the only cookbook you'll ever need.  Also check out OAMC websites ("Once A Month Cooking" or "Freezer Cooking") -- they have lots of recipes scaled to serve 8 people or more!
