11  Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 19- Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by FruityLoops on: May 19, 2014 10:14:52 AM
So this week Burton has been fairly busy! 

Mr Loops requested some chocolate cake earlier in the week and Burton kindly offered to help me Smiley  He found the mixer pretty heavy to use so I had to give him a hand, but he was very proud of the result, and enjoying noshing on it when it had cooled down!

Then on Saturday I invited Burton to come to Afternoon Tea for my friend Sharon's birthday.  He absolutely loved it and kept going on about how British he felt having afternoon tea Wink

A perfectly Burton sized Victoria Sponge!

And then in the evening he came with us to our friend Spammy and Chris' house for a BBQ, we get sun so rarely that we have to take advantage of it when we can!

He insisted on helping with the BBQ but I did have to help him a little  Cool

It occurs to me that almost all the piccies of Burton are involving food, rofl... we do like our food tho to be fair!!! Wink  Will be updating Burton's blog soon with these and more photos (particularly from afternoon tea).  Nothing particularly exciting planned for this week but much stuff coming soon, including 2 or 3 beer festivals and camping!

A little delayed with my first piccie post since Burton's arrival, but I made it finally!

Burton arrived last Wednesday, with some yummy Hershey's in tow and his suitcase with chew toy and puppy blanket Smiley

We haven't been on any big trips yet, but on Friday I took him out for Chinese food after Zumba Step

On Saturday my friend Spammy and I took Burton on a craft shopping trip to Hobbycraft and then he made friends with my stuffie Mr H (Hugsie), and Spam's stuffies Arnold the cat and Lennurd the tiger

And yesterday we went out for sushi!!  Burton was a little apprehensive at first but he seemed to have a great time trying the food, learning how to use chopsticks and we were sat right in front of the kitchen so he got to watch the chefs work Grin  Here he is trying a salmon dragon roll!

More piccies are on my LV blog - http://lvsinglos.blogspot.co.uk/  I've linked to all the other LV blogs that I know of, let me know if I've missed anyone off!!

Just made Mr Toast a little blanket and pillow for his long journey across the ocean!  He's quite anxious as it's been a long while since he's travelled but he's also very excited to meet craftADDchick! Wink

Today I shall be putting together his passport and contract, and hoping to send on Tues or Wed  Cool

16  Thundercats gored skirt a.k.a. back to my childhood!! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by FruityLoops on: April 22, 2013 03:21:12 AM
Hi guys!

So I've had this faaaaabulous Thundercats fabric, that I picked up at a market, sat in my stash for years and years and never known what to do with it.  I had recently pondered making maybe an apron or a big bag with it.

But then a few weeks ago we had our monthly "Carvery Club" outing for Sunday munchies and I couldn't decide what to wear so I decided to knock up a skirt with the beautious fabric Cheesy

Now I'm not that daring when it comes to sewing my own clothing so pretty much every skirt I've made before now has been a circle skirt, but I didn't have that much fabric and if it were circle then the pattern would have been the wrong way up for most of the skirt, soooo I decided to step it up and made a 6 gored skirt, eeeeek!  Didn't bother with a pattern, just used a calculator, a pen, and a couple of rulers Wink

I even popped in a nice big pocket on either side because I hate having clothing without pockets, plus I've always wanted to try making a skirt or dress with pockets!!

Mr Loops reckoned it would be better if I'd matched up the pattern, but the pattern was very repetitive plus of course I didn't have enough to be able to do that, so 'fraid not!!

TTFN  Cool

17  Dr Hoooooo in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by FruityLoops on: March 22, 2013 01:25:58 PM
Holy moley, I can't believe it's been over 2 years since I last posted.  Craziness!!!

Well I'm still making owls anyways and here are 2 of my latest.  Please say hi to Dr Hoo 10 and 11!

My sister looooooves Dr Who, specifically David Tennant, and she's also a big fan of my owls. So when I was home for Xmas 2011 we had to take her to A&E (ER to non-Brits), and at some point there (somewhere between 2 and 6am Sad) I promised I'd make her a David Tennant owl.  And being the the mean sister that I am I made her wait aaaaaall year, so that she'd forget about it obviously, and finally made her one for Xmas 2012!

Complete with removeable 3D glasses to make sure he can see void stuff if needed Smiley

And a back view :-D

I would have liked to have made him a suit from some nice cotton stripy fabric rather than fleece but I'm still looking for the perfect fabric :-)


Anyways, then after making the Tenth Doctor Who/Hoo for my Sis, I decided it would be awesome to make an owl version of ALL the doctors!!!  Alas I haven't had time to do that yet, but the Eleventh Doctor Who - Matt Smith, I have had time to make  Grin

With of course his fez, because fezzes are cool!


Hope you like, c&c welcome!!

Thanks for looking   Cool

Show and tell Smiley  So my aim of this week was to cut down on carbs such as bread/pasta/rice/potatoes, but without upping my fat intake!

Last night I was looking through the freezer and decided I needed to eat up some of the stuff that had been in there ages (namely prawns, cod, and mushrooms), so I made myself a stir fry!  As well as prawns, cod and lots of mushrooms, it also contained leek, cabbage, peas, a fresh mushroom, lots of garlic and a smidge of cheese Smiley  Was certainly filling, and had 4 of my daily portions of veg in it, bargains, I love stir fries!

And tonight Mr Loops had a mate over to watch movies and eat very unhealthy food with (namely big fat pizzas with extra toppings and cheese on, and a key lime pie for dessert) so I made sure to plan and eat my food before they started cooking so that I didn't get tempted!!

So I made a kind of turkey curry (ish), with mushrooms, red pepper, onion, spring onions, a few cooked potatoes I had left over (canned), some turkey I needed to get rid of out of the freezer (again), some extra light soft cheese, hot curry powder and herbs, with a nice portion of yummy [microwaved] cauliflower rice on the side Smiley

I do love a bit of invention in the kitchen!  Not sure the piccies do them justice but they were both yummy meals and very low fat and low carb, yey Cheesy

Yummy yum, a healthy and fresh Sweet Potato, Chicken, Coconut and Chilli soup for tea, with some freshly baked granary bread  Cheesy

And plenty leftover for my lunch the next 2 days!

EDIT: Forgot to add that my goal is going well so far, filled in my food diary the last 2 days Smiley

20  Rodriguez the Mexican Bandito Owl! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by FruityLoops on: January 15, 2011 11:42:20 AM
Please say hi to Rodriguez, the Mexican Bandito Owl  Grin

Rodriguez was born into a wealthy family in Guadalajara, Mexico. Alas he rebelled from his priviledged life, left Guadalajara and formed a group of Banditos to terrorise owls passing through the Laser-Shark Mountains!!

After 10 years of Banditting he left Mexico to travel the world in search of a posse worthy of skills! Vmonos!

My last owl post for a little while, I have another chap on the go but will be a little while before I'm ready to post him Smiley

Thanks for lookin  Cool
