Gosh, I love summer. I was feeling a lil' nibbly so went out and picked whatever was ready from the backyard. It was all so flavourful, honestly the best thing I've eaten in days. The difference between our ugly misshapen veg and that perfect looking but bland tasting stuff from the grocery store is incredible! There's simply no comparison.

What's your favourite edible to grow? We tried tomatillo this year.  It's a bit outrageous, one single plant's taken over half a large planter box. I'll make something when we harvest them and post the recipe, they are very tasty, yum yum.

I want to keep my Bionicle/Hero Factory figures, and I can't speak for my former friend, as we grew apart and I haven't seen or spoken to him in over a decade.  I see Bionicles in thrift stores every now and then, but your son would probably have better luck buying figure/part lots on eBay (I just looked, and they're actually selling bags of parts by the pound on there!).

This is the last one I bought, in 2017, mainly because I liked that it had 4-arms and the green translucent plastic looked cool:

Yay! Thanks for WotW, Fiber! Smiley

A couple more projects to turn in...

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Dyed Dress for a Wedding
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: My cousin is getting married this weekend and I found a dress I really liked at TJ Maxx for $7!! The only problem - it was white. Ugh. Well, nothing a little dye can't fix, right? Because of the blend of fibers on this dress, I used RIT (Pearl Gray) to do a stove-top dye bath. I was nervous that the color would be too light so I ended up using the whole bottle. It came out more periwinkle than gray, but hey, at least it's not white!
Project Picture:

I forgot to take a before picture, but found one of the dress online:

Here's my altered version:

Class: DADA
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Light Side or Dark Side Twin Tees
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Inspired by Lothruin's Knitted Star Wars Scarves, I made t-shirts for my daughters - one with the rebel alliance symbol and one with the symbol for the galactic empire. The HTV and shirts are both flexible materials, and who wears which shirt changes depending on how they are behaving, allowing for flexibility in the wearing as well. Wink

My trashy stash has hatched more fire dragonflies. These were made for an assemblage swap, but I have several more in progress for donating to our church fundraising holiday fair.

I made a larger fire dragonfly earlier in the summer for my garden https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=455229.0 and realized that these were a perfect item for an assemblage swap. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=455468.0. I had so much fun I started 4 of them and finished two.

Heavy gauge fence wire from the hardware store (formed and then hammered flat), a Bic pen body, glass teardrop ornaments, beads, florist wire, bottle caps, rusted hardware, some springs from who knows where, failed shrinkies experiment using a plastic cup (they came out very odd shaped, but were perfect for this project), and E6000.

and an in-progress look.

I made these (giant) gift tags for these back to school gifts that I made for our nieces.

Where they live, school starts after Labor Day, so I have a couple of weeks before sending.

I was able to use all stash for these, including some things I've had for a few years w/o a purpose. YEY!

Teenmanboy collects bionicles, they are a kind of lego robot thing he makes stop motion animation with. He has my old studio and it's getting full of those little guys, just look at this madness.

I don't get it but to support him in his creativity we went out today & collected supplies to make a backdrop for filming. It isn't lit very well here but when it is the shadows mostly vanish leaving a great white space for filming.

It folds up out of the way of the desk surface & is also reversable with a green screen background on the other side.

That & reorganizing the basement were the extent of my efforts today. My wrist has been bothering me, I gotta figure that out so I can craft all the crafts all the time!
