This is both beautiful and brilliant!  Your father addressed all of the little challenges associated with Scrabble and created a wonderful heirloom as well.  What a clever and useful piece of work...thanks for sharing it!

Bananagrams is a totally addictive word grid game similar to Scrabble, but there's no board, and everyone plays their own letters at the same time.  Here's a link to their site which explains things a little more clearly.

I'll post the banana bag tut in a few days...things are crazy here at the moment (which, of course, explains why I was making stuff at midnight to begin with)...

Here's the tile breakdown, if anybody wants to make their own set:

    * 2: J, K, Q, X, Z
    * 3: B, C, F, H, M, P, V, W, Y
    * 4: G
    * 5: L
    * 6: D, S, U
    * 8: N
    * 9: R, T
    * 11: O
    * 12: I
    * 13: A
    * 18: E

I played Bananagrams today at a friend's and I'm totally addicted.  Of course, I wanted a set to play at home, and wasn't so keen on spending 15 bucks to get one...

Since I have a tendency to pick up Scrabble games at yard sales and hang on to them, I assembled my own set in about 45 minutes using the following materials:

144 hoarded Scrabble tiles
1 old yellow tshirt from my stash
1 nylon drawstring from DS's old backpack

I'm as pleased as punch, and fighting the strong desire to freezer paper stencil the logo into my banana bag!

8  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Fingerspelled ASL cookies on: March 10, 2008 04:53:18 AM
This is FANTASTIC!  As a deaf ed major in college, I was always looking for fingerspelling cookie cutters, but never had any luck.  It never occurred to me to use a hand cookie cutter (duh!) and position the fingers myself...Needless to say, I'll be making these with my 3rd and 4th grade ASL class!  Thanks for the inspiration.

I'd probaly scrub it up and then get some nifty retro chrome canisters to hold all of my cooking goodies.  I often pick these up in the thrift shops, and can get a set of three for 5-8 bucks on a good day.  The piece is fabulous---I wouldn't do anything else to it!

This is beautifully done!  Did you use a pattern, or freehand it?  I made one for my daughter's 3rd b day, and was amazed at the amount of effort that went into it.  How did you make her hair?  Really a beautiful job!
