1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Garden Bird Deterrent: Image Heavy on: January 31, 2010 05:31:16 PM

Materials:8 CD's or DVD's, and 8 plastic coated paper clips.
Tools: Drill with bit, and piece of wood.

I put both CD's back to back and drilled through them at the same time. It made the paper clips much easier to attach. Corded drills work better than battery ones. Remember to wear eye protection.

I like to use the plastic coated paper clips to link the CD's as I live in Oregon where it rains a lot.

Put paper clips through the holes in both sides of the cd's. Make sure the CD's are shiny side out.

Finished Recycled CD Garden Bird Deterrent.  I made mine 4 CD's long, but you could go longer or shorter to fit your needs and/or level of patience.  I plan on placing this and it's three friends out in my garden later this spring.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / RFID Blocking Passport Cover on: August 21, 2008 10:17:47 PM

I used old jean fabric and left over ribbon to make an RFID blocking passport cover.

The interior red fabric is left over from a finished quilt.

The shine under the fabric is the anti-static computer bag (2 layers) cut to size.
2 layers of aluminum foil sandwiched in between the anti-static bag layers.
Theoretically this should block unwanted scans of the RFID chip in the passport.

3  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Blue umbilical cord hat on: August 04, 2008 09:33:17 PM
Made with Plymouth Yarn: Baby Alpaca Brush color 1710
Added an inch of K1, P1

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Not sure what to call this...not a sweater, nor a shrug... on: June 21, 2008 09:26:56 PM

Finished this one just in time for summer.  :0
Not sure what to call it.  It's not a scarf, nor a shrug...

Can flip up to keep my neck warm with the short hair.

The neck overlaps off center to keep the wind off my neck.

Large neck makes it easy to take off without messing the hair.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knit/Knit Scarves (now with fixed images) on: February 18, 2008 09:56:38 AM
First project I've done for my hubby, it has extra "features"   Cheesy

Softened this one up by running it in the washing machine on delicate cold cycle.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The First Project I Finished on: February 18, 2008 09:45:26 AM
Bumpy yarn is truly lovely for a first project.  A multitude of knitting sins are hidden.   Grin

7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Ribbed for her pleasure purple scarf w/ matching hat in modified hot head design on: February 18, 2008 08:58:15 AM

The hat was my second try at the hot head pattern.  I changed it up this time.

I used Lion Brand Yarn in Grape
Cast on: 60
5 Rows: K1, P1
20 Rows: K2, P2
Finish the same way as the hot head pattern.

8  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Ribbed for her pleasure scarf w/ matching hot head hat (w/ picts) on: February 17, 2008 06:11:01 PM

The scarf worked out really well, but I made the hat a size too large.
The hat looks like a blue version of the one "Dumb Donald" wore in the cartoon version of Fat Albert.  It makes for a nice sleeping hat during the winter.

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Knitting Needle Roll from Recycled Materials on: December 28, 2007 03:06:08 PM
My very sweet husband bought me a set of bamboo knitting needles
for Christmas along with a Stitch 'n Bitch book. 

This is my version of the knitting needle case.

I used the leg of a pair of jeans that had a blow out in the hinney.

The black ribbon was left over from my wedding.

The fish fabric was left over from another project.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bubble Envelope Purse & Wallet on: December 28, 2007 02:59:13 PM
I used a heavy duty bubble envelope that arrived from Hong Kong last week. 
I flipped the envelope inside out, took scissors to it, and a few Velcro circles.
