11  fibonacci plaid in Needlework: Completed Projects by missriss on: March 08, 2010 06:35:04 PM
I'm pretty sure this is the first thing I've posted on this board...   For midterms I had to make a project for my "math in art and nature" class using one of the concepts we've talked about in class.  I used the Fibonacci sequence (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibonacci_number) to determine the size of the squares.  I outlined them in black with a stem stitch and filled them in with just a running stitch (or is it called something else?)
The picture isn't that great but I have no sunlight.  And doubt there will be any for a while...

12  bread transforms into pudding and croutons in Recipes and Cooking Tips by missriss on: February 07, 2010 11:45:46 AM
my roommate had a pretty bad day yesterday, so i did the only thing I know to do to make someone feel better and got to work in the kitchen.  I went and bought some french bread and cubed it last night so it would dry out.
this morning i used this recipe to make bread pudding (http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1612,158178-247200,00.html)  except i used cinnamon instead of nutmeg and brown sugar instead of regular sugar (I really don't know how I ran out of something so basic..) i also added a banana, but that was a bad choice.  It wasn't the best bread pudding I've ever had but it was still pretty tasty. 

one of my banana slices was purple and I kind of freaked out, then I realized it was probably just touching a raisin...

I had a lot of bread left over so i melted some butter, mixed in some pesto and extra garlic, coated the rest of the bread and put it under the broiler mixing every couple of minutes for i think about 8 minutes total and made FABULOUS croutons!

croutons in their element.

ahh!  i received from RobbinZombie today and everything was just SO FABULOUS!  best swap partner ever.
my pictures are sucky because my camera was cold and angry... 
first there was the yeti, which was her first stuffed animal ever!  really i wouldn't have known.  he's protecting my desk from evil things Wink  and the giant squid who is totally adorable...

then a GIANT tote bag with nessie appliqud on the front.  and i too got a tentacle gummy, which i've begun to devour as an end of the week treat. 

everything is awesome robbinzombie!  i was going to take teaser pics, but it just didn't happen, but judging from how fast your package got here i'm sure you will be receiving shortly.

14  Re: Dreadlocks in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by missriss on: April 26, 2009 11:00:36 AM
so ever since i met him, my boyfriend has been wanting dreads..  last week on the bus he convinced me to do them for him.  of course i said yes...  i've always been intrigued by dread, but i could never pull them off and don't have enough patience for them.  so i'll just live vicariously through his.  he's been growing his hair out for a year.  it's pretty wavy and thick but super fine.  we started on tuesday and finished today (sunday).  i really didn't know what i was doing when i started.  we just read some stuff online and we took it from there.  i'm pretty proud of myself.  he's been complaining since thursday that he wants to wash his hair, but i won't let him until wednesday (is that a good amount of time??  he has pretty oily hair and some parts of his scalp are kinda flake-y)  he went and bought some residue free shampoo and i talked him out of getting wax after reading this thread (ok, just parts of it, i'm not reading all the pages)...  he did get some knottyboy accelerating gel- good or bad??  we're waiting to use it after he washes his hair.
ok, on to the pictures...


{i just realized he's wearing the same shirt from the tuesday picture and the pictures from last night..}

17  child beauty pageant costume! in Halloween Costumes by missriss on: November 02, 2008 09:37:07 AM
i got the great idea after watching one of those TLC shows about child beauty pageants to dress up like a contestant for halloween..
first, finished product, because i know that's what everyone wants to see.

some "before pictures"
the top.  it actually had a leotard bottom on it, but i cut it off before taking the picture.

close up of the fabulous sequins- that constantly fell off all night.

bottom- also had some leotard action

i cut off the skirt and sewed it onto the sequined top.  and cut off the hideous sleeves.  i didn't hem them, because i don't have a sewing machine.  and i didn't think they looked to bad as they were...
my dramatic pose.  my talent was interpretive dance- because it required no props.

i  wasn't as happy with it as i wanted to be, but i still had a lot of fun.
it was SO HARD to zip up because it was a child's dance costume.  my roommate & i struggled for a while trying to figure it out...

19  ink blot shirt in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by missriss on: September 27, 2008 09:41:50 AM
so i've been scraching my head for a while now trying to think of something psychology related that wasn't overtly so to put on a tshirt...  so here it is!

i don't know if this is where it belongs, but it seemed the best place to put it.
i sqeezed fabric paint onto a piece of paper, folded it in half, opened it up, and pressed it on my tshirt and voila!  a rorshach inspired tshirt!
