21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: First Timers Swap Gallery on: November 11, 2006 10:39:43 AM
Ok, here's the pics of the package that Mamapeanut sent me. Grin

First of all, she made these awesome slippers!

They were a little tight at first, but they fit better now with some stretching.

And then, she made some soap (honey and oatmeal, I can't wait to try it!) and a felted clutch that is so cute I can hardly stand it!! (In other words, I love it.)

She also knitted me a scarf out of the softest yarn, (I keep petting it!) and sent me a sweet card (isn't it cute!) and some twizzlers (I tried to hide that they are half eaten in the pic)!

And then, as a surprise, she made me a shrinky-dink piratey charm bracelet.  Ok, I slept with it and had a hard time parting with it for the picture.

I don't know if you can tell, but there is an anchor, a treasure map, some kinda naval star, a treasure chest, a pirate ship, a piratey sword, a parrot and a buccaneer hat!  It's so adorable!

Finally, some slipper action shots. (It's hard to take pics of your feet!)

I promise I'm not pigeon-toed.  Heehee.  Thanks so much mamapeanut!  You were the perfect partner!

I haven't dropped off either.  Life's been crazy and I am getting ready to send.  I have two more (small) things to make and I will be sending just under the wire.  :-D  I have had such a great time!

It sounds gross, it looks gross, but its really good. I've been with my bf for almost four years, after he moved in (like three months after we started dating) he went with me and my mom to the grocery store, well he bought Duke's Mayonnaise and liver mush. He cut the liver mush into strips and fried it and then put it in a sandwich with the mayo and American cheese. OMG nothing that looks so gross should taste that good. He was from NC and alot of people there love it, my aunt is married to a man in NC and she has join the liver mush wagon too, haha.

My mamaw (grandmother) used to make cornbread and a few hours after supper was over, her and my papaw (grandfather) would put some of the cornbread in tall glasses and pour buttermilk over it, I always thought it looked gross. I hated cornbread until the bf introduced me to Jiffy...yum...sweet cornbread.

You must love your bf a lot to even try that stuff!  It sounds nastier than nasty.  And fattening.  Is it really greasy?

Anyway, your grandpa did the same thing my grandpa did.  It must be an old man thing.

All you early swappers are giving me anxiety.  Luckily, my swap partner (mamapeanut) doesn't seem to be as ready, so she won't be waiting on me so long and wondering if I flaked or something.  :-D

My brother used to eat peanut butter and mayo sandwiches.  Hoark.

But the worst was spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce.  And my parents had a rule that if you didn't finish dinner, you had to eat what was left on your plate for breakfast, and if you didn't eat it for breakfast, you had to eat it for lunch, then dinner, and so on.  Whenever spaghetti squash was served for dinner, I ended up going hungry for a few days.

HOW AWFUL.  I hate it when parents have dumb rules about eating.  I realize it is because they want their children to get over being picky and what-not, but forcing your kids to eat something for breakfast that they didn't eat at dinner, or making them clean their plates before leaving the table just encourages bad eating habits later in life.  THAT'S why Americans are so fat . . .

Or is it peanut butter with mayo?  Tongue
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Armpit knitting - how do I stop? on: October 27, 2006 11:10:52 AM
Hahaha.  That's a funny way of putting it.  I always have to have one knitting needle tucked under my arm in some way to stabilize it, but I also hold it with my hand.  

I don't know how you are doing your knitting, but I have never had a problem using circular needles because they are shorter and less "unwieldy."  I imagine that most people have to learn a whole new technique when knitting on DPNs, because it is a whole different concept, so don't fret.  It all just takes getting used to.

I'm proud of you for wanting to learn these techniques. DPNs scare the heck outta most people.
