as shootenanny is moving she does not have access to her camera and asked me to pop up some images of what I sent to her.

a black infinty dress made from a light weight non stretch fabric, so I put a zipper into the waist.

and a 60's inspired apron

They both have rolled hems, which took forever but look great, this fabric is so hard to hem otherwise.

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to post photos.
I normally get them up quickly but I really wanted good ones of the awesomest shawl ever.

I told shootenanny that I was going to a wedding in 2 weeks time and she made me this fabulous shawl to wear with my dress.

a close up of the pattern

ain't it fabulous and this was her first swap.

I am so proud to own this very fine item of clothing.

25  Feirce Centauress in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Tanza on: August 31, 2010 02:46:10 AM
I have had this image in my head for almost 12 months now.
Of a Centauress........she has finally come to life.

She really doesn't see what all the fuss about some boobies is.......she likes to show them off.

I did manage to get her to agree to wear a cloth for the photos.......She refuses to tell me her name.
"Names have power" she tells me.

she does love the camera, and is not shy about working it either.

she showed me her eyes, they are quiet uncommon in her village.

You'll note she is sitting down, a real slacker when allowed she is.

Here are some more shoots of her when she was nudie......before the epic struggle of getting her into clothes.

I used the poppet boobie pattern and a horse pattern.

I did learn however that I need to make her back shorter than her front by quiet a bit to make her stand more upright.

26  RRR Challenge 1 from frumpy to functional in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Tanza on: August 16, 2010 06:25:25 PM
This is my entry into the challenge

This dress I really liked the style of, BUT it was so Nana looking and frumpy.

I ripped out the centre panel, which was black with little flowers on it.....I mean you'd think they would have used a different color to start with.
Then I sewed in eyelets and re threaded the lace, I took out the zipper from the back which in hindsight I should have left in    oh well.
a sort of close up of the eyelets

 Then I took one of my old fave tee's, which had really bad stains under the arms, but I loved the monkey's on the front, funny that I hate monkeys but these ones are cool, I can make them bounce when I walk..... Grin

I cut up another old shirt that was huge and remade them both into a little dress to either wear on it's own out as the under garment for my  lace up dress.

I just love the fact that I actually look like I have boobs with this outfit.
I can't wait till summer to wear it.
although miss.17 has forbidden me from wear the white dress outside the house without my black lace up over the top.......silly girl like I'll listen....

Tell me what you think, don't be shy I have very broad shoulders..... Grin

28  Make ur own BUTTER in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Tanza on: July 30, 2010 03:26:11 AM
The veggie shop had 2 lt bottles of cream cheap as chips.
So I bought some.
What to make.....
.........BUTTER of course.

put your cream into a large mixing bowl and beat it, once it is nice and thick like you would use for cakes etc,
You can flavour it here if you like

keep beating it, after a few minutes it will look like this, scrap the sides down and beat some more.

once it starts to clunk around and spit out liquid you will have this

This is your butter finished.

Now all you have to is drain it.

This is the butter milk after it has drained off the milk.

Now you can use a stainer and then squeeze the butter by hand to remove the last little bits.
Or you can pop it into cheese cloth/muslin and keep twisting the top to remove all the excess butter milk.
I never bother with this step as I keep my butter frozen and only thaw it when I need it to cook with.

I store mine in ziplock bags with the date on the front so that I use the earliest ones first.

freezes well, tastes great.

29  ninja dragon in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Tanza on: June 23, 2010 01:58:28 AM
I bought this design for my embroidery machine and it is suppose to be an in the hoop project.

Let me tell you it is NOT and in the hoop project,thus meaning after all the pieces stitched out it still took me over an hour to sew them all together.
it would have been much quicker to cut and sew by hand thus avoiding my embroidery machine...

But he is so cute too, I made some changes to him to make him into a ninja dragon

here he is tell me what ya think.

"I know it's raining by WHY can't I go out to play?"

"I wonder if she would notice if I ate all these tomatoes?"

jemimah was going to angel for me when a swap parcel went missing twice...it did end up turning.
SOOOO as she had already started my parcel I offered to do a personal swap with her.

She sent me this fabulous apron which fits so nicely, I feel like it is a dress lol.
and some great fabric for me too.

and this is what she wrapped it all in, I love it but am torn between leaving it and using it as a sarong or turning it into a summer dress.....
