11  Olive the Octopus in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by piratetreasure on: July 01, 2007 11:02:55 AM
For some reason I got it in my head I wanted to make an octopus amiguri yesterday.  I looked on the web for some inspiration and came up with this.

I also finally saw Little Miss Sunshine last night.  After a bit of contemplation on what I should name my octopus I decided Olive was a pretty fitting name.  It sort of looks like an olive with pimento eyes, doesn't it?

Here's a picture of Olive reading Harry Potter 2 with my SO, who is rereading them all in anticipation of the last book's release next this month.

Thanks for looking.  Hope you like it.

12  Plastic Bag Picnic Blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by piratetreasure on: June 25, 2007 08:41:35 PM
Here's my entry.  It's for enjoying nature while using recycled goods.  This blanket is made of many many many many plastic grocery bags and a recycled sweatshirt.  I figured plastic would be good for sitting on grass which is often soggy but the plastic is also quite itchy on bare legs so  it's lined with the sweatshirt on the sitting side.  It also conveniently has a pocket for outdoor crafting supplies.

Just the crochet side...

Close up of the crafting pocket...

My cat, on the other hand, LOVES plastic bags and has taken to bathing on the plastic side.

A special thanks to everyone in my family who came together to create plastic bag yarn for me this weekend.  Actually everyone got together for my mother, sister & aunt's birthdays and I put everyone to work.  I couldn't have done it so quickly without a lot of help.

Here are some pics of my awesome package from alteredmommy.

She generously made me several things with Buddha on them and included a few delicious treats as well.

Here are a few close-ups:

This is my new rockin' Buddha alter/shrine.  It's made from a buddha perfume bottle, paint, gesso, bookpages, distressing ink, joss paper and handmade Thai paper.

Here is a close-up of the really cool bottlecap/resin Buddha magnets.  They look perfect.

My very first ATC.  I think I am addicted.  I absolutely love and and have to figure out how to start collecting more.  She also sent me really awesome cards with quotes on them.

And some treats...These are Clodhoppers.  They are really delicious and I think I may have to start importing these from Canada.  They are made by a friend of a friend of alteredmommy.

And a pure maple lollipop.  Can't wait to try it.

Is this all wonderful or what?  What can I say but thank you, thank you, thank you?

A proper thank you will go out by mail.

Thanks, alteredmommy!

15  Mother's Day Slippers for All (lots of pics) in Crochet: Completed Projects by piratetreasure on: May 13, 2007 08:17:55 PM
My latest project was making a few mother's day gifts.  In my family everyone is a mother, including my niece & nephew who are both under 10 and don't have children themselves.  We just like giving and getting gifts, I guess.

I made these from Lydia the Strange's pattern (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0).  It took me a whole lot longer than 20 minutes though.

Here they are I made these all yesterday.

This is when she unwrapped them...

My nephew modeling his...

Here's a close-up.  I'm particularly proud of these.  He loves Spidey.

My niece modeling hers...

Here's a close-up too.

Thanks for looking!  Happy Mother's Day to all.

17  Re: Star Baby Blanket~Along in Crochetalongs by piratetreasure on: March 31, 2007 12:36:35 PM
I started one last night for a friend's new niece/nephew. 

The first photo is of my first 5 rounds. 

The next one is about half way towards completion. 

I finished it! What do you think?

18  My Favorite Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by piratetreasure on: March 24, 2007 03:38:06 PM
I just love this scarf.  I made it from a grey skein I bought at the 99 cent store but it was a really small skein and the scarf was way too short.  I added on to it months later.  I think it turned out awesome.  The muted rainbow yarn was left over from another project.

It's turned out rather long after all.

Thanks for checking it out!

19  Provocative Sculpey in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by piratetreasure on: March 24, 2007 03:18:13 PM
I love working with clay.  I even took a sculpting class in college.  Here are a few of my latest creation.  Not too bad given that I hadn't worked with clay in years.  They are a bit provocative.

20  Bathroom Door Made of Glass? in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by piratetreasure on: March 24, 2007 03:04:31 PM
We rented an apartment with a bathroom door made of glass and it opens onto our living room.  Although the glass is opaque, you can still basically tell what's going on inside.  This was our solution.

Let me know what you think?  Shocked
