3  Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Graphgan in Crochet: Completed Projects by bethntim on: August 19, 2018 02:03:55 PM
I made this pattern on an excel spreadsheet for my 1 year old nephew, we share a birthday so he's a pretty special little dude.
It was 4 individual panels crocheted in mini corner to corner, sewed together at the end.

Cooper had to get in on the action:





The happy recipient:

I've solidified my title of Best Auntie Ever!

this is the kind of stuff I signed up for!!  OMG I am totally in love!!!

Every time I see the word bustle I am reminded of the story of Pecos Bill (brilliantly adapted by Disney)

"Then across the sky In words of fire Bill told sweet Sue Of his own heart's desire Sweet Sue I love you. Sue named the wedding day but Bill had a price to pay. Sue wanted a bustle, the finest, of course, and she aimed to be wedded riding Bill's horse. Sue got her bustle and it was classy. Put the finishing touch on her chassis. That happy blushing bride was busting with girlish pride. But Bill had promised her a ride on Widowmaker. Would that horse let Sue ride? Here comes the answer. Fit to be tied! Widowmaker was irritated. But that didn't bother Sue. She walked up to his side, touched his bristling hide. With a flick of her bustle, Sue was aboard and sat for the tussle. The proceedings commenced forthwith. No doubt about it, that Sue was a regular female buckaroo. And then that bustle. Underneath the frills and flounces, Sue developed plenty of bounces. More than she could handle. Then Sue took off like a Roman candle. That devilish contraption of steel and wire bounced the poor girl higher and higher. It was plain to the multitude that Sue was gaining altitude. Looked like she was a goner. But no! A ray of hope. Look! Bill and his trusty rope. He'd darned soon put a stop to this. Bill was never known to miss. Bill was calm, confident. He built his loop with careless ease. He judged his distance, tested the breeze. Then a whirl and a twirl and a twist of the wrist, he let her go! But the champion missed! How it come to happen, nobody could figure out. She was off again on her heavenly flight. Up she went, clean out of sight. Till, far into space, this unfortunate maid finally come to the moon, and that's where she stayed. In the state of Texas, USA, life still goes on in the same old way. The Pecos River still flows on, but the greatest cowboy on earth is gone. Yeah, Bill went back to the coyotes, but he never forgot Sue. Every night when the moon was high, he'd lift his voice in a mournful cry, bewailing the fate of his lady fair, his long-lost love in the sky up there. So painful was his grief to see, the varmints joined in out of sympathy. That's how come, to this very day, coyotes howl at the moon that way."

7  Dog-Proof Yarn Organization/Yarn Bobbins in Crochet: Discussion and Questions by bethntim on: July 10, 2018 06:23:28 AM
My darling-sweet-never causes trouble Cooper (full name Cooper James Doodle) has picked up a very bad habit of grabbing mommy's yarn and running like a banshee through the house
Not this sweet face!

So I have seen some things on Pinterest where people use clothes pin bobbins and a broom stick to organize their yarn
Since my broom stick is my main mode of transportation I had to think of another solution
Using the same bobbin winding idea I clipped them onto the basket where I store my yarn, problem solved!
I bought these Jumbo Clothespins at the Dollar Tree, a 6-pack was just $1! And they hold a surprisingly large amount of yarn

So I got to winding

Then I clipped them onto my basket (where my yarn already) was in the order I was using them, hopefully this cuts down on Coopie running rampant through the house and also on my mess of tangles that inevitably follows me

10  Bob Marley Guitar in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by bethntim on: June 07, 2018 11:20:53 AM
I design/make props for work.  Mostly generic things for catering events, boxes, walls, tables, risers, hi-los, etc... But this is my favorite piece so far.  We're re-vamping a reggae venue and had a guitar laying around.  Who better than Bob Marley to be the face?
Using my silhouette cameo I found an image that I liked and got to work!
