My mini list for the August challenge:

1. WIP: "Subtle" Bribe dishcloths for co-workers (I have 19 finished, and am aiming for 40)
2. WIP: Gryffindor Scarf for my niece.
3. WIP: pink/maroon hat.
4. WIP: Pompom Rainbow baby blanket
5. WIP: Golden Fire Spiral Hex baby blanket

I'm crossing off the first item on my mini-list.  

As a thank you to my co-workers for promoting my crochet classes (and jokingly as a bribe to keep doing so ^_-) I made them some dishcloths.

We have a lot of employees, so I'm not sure how many I'll need, but I'm hoping that 40 will cover most of them.  I'm working tomorrow, so I'm going to count the people on the schedule and see if I need to make any more.

I counted this as a WIP because before I started, I had 19 finished dishcloths, and this project required 21 more to make it an even 40.

So on Saturday morning, this is what I had:

(On the right: 19 finished cloths. Top left: yarn for the rest. Bottom left: progress made Friday evening and Saturday morning.)

Here's the latest 21:

And here are all 40 together:

All 40 stacked up:

Crafting 'cause I can't help myself

I got all the food done and it went over BIG, people were so happy to get yummy food after a 16 hour work day!
Lessons learned, I like unusual food but when people are exhausted they want SIMPLE, the lasagna (2 large crockpots full) and the enchiladas were a hit and they liked the rest but didn't eat as much. 
So next year I will make less types of food and more of the simple stuff like lasagna, enchiladas, a big baked real mac and cheese, a simple chicken cheese quinoa dish for me and the Gluten free crowd and just 3 types of Brownies for dessert and little ice cream cups with some sauces, tons of garlic bread and some simple veg like green beans in butter and a medium green salad, fewer Items but lots of it.

Right before the con I scored a 2 piece angelfood cake pan for $1.20 at a thrift store and so I made crockpot Applebutter and used it to make an applesauce cake with homemade caramel sauce and also I made an AMAZING banana cake, to be honest I cheated and used 3 boxes each of those little JIFFY muffin mixes and used 2/3rds of the wet ingredients and 1/2 of a small package of pudding and for the apple cake I used 10oz of apple butter (half in the mix and half spooned in as a filling) and 3 very mashed over ripe bananas for the other

Tonight for Alex (My poor exhausted husband who worked so hard for this convention) I made (homemade and grown) Pesto butter Parmesan encrusted Swai (Fish) and green beans with a sliced Roma tomato.

jillybeans--love the altered keys!  Also, what a great way to use up seed beads--love the tri-color bracelet--like a candy corn for your wrist! Cheesy

fantasticmio--holy cow!  Those are a lot of dishcloths for just crossing off ONE thing on your list!:D

j_kieviet- welcome back...love the mini lists---

trina--you survived!  Hope things get back to normal for you soon!  I have found that with large crowds, comfort foods are the hit...and most of those contain high fat like cheese or mayo...it makes it yummy and people do not feel guilty eating them at events! Cheesy

Your cakes sound so yummy!

Oh boy, more canned stuff. The spiced honey looks yummy, I should remember that for after September, there's lots of honey left over after the new year.
Always - the honey mustard sauce sounds delicious.
Sarah - cool tire covers, I'm wondering what would happen if I drove behind a car with the spirals cover...
smashu - working with siblings is fun, isn't it? I wish my crafting brother was closer, so we can do some cool stuff together.
SilverMoon - the month just started, and you are already mostly done with the challenge, way to go! I love the color of the gloves, and now you have me thinking about a beaded nyan cat  Cheesy
Jillybeans - cool bracelets. I saw them yesterday, when you posted them in the jewelry board, but couldn't comment (couldn't reach the keyboard due to sleeping baby). I wonder what it would look like with different colors for the different strands of the braid.
fantasticmio - that's a nice big batch of dishcloths, the last pic looks like a stack of colorful pancakes (or is that just me being hungry?)
trina - you made it through all that cooking, you're amazing. And you got everyone fed and happy, always a good thing Smiley

I think I managed to figure out my mini list for august:
1. enter current Craftster challenge - got the food made and pictures taken, need to write it all up and post
2. finish X WIPs from my craft boxes (need to take a look and see what's in the boxes, X will be a proper number tomorrow, I hope)
3. create a tutorial for one of the beaded chains I make
4. create new years cards to send by the end of the month
5. 5 more simple beaded necklaces for my nieces

silvermoon! Love the purple gloves...and hey, since you are nearly done with your minilist, do another one! Cheesy

Ok then.

My August list:
Chroma scarf - WIP
purple fingerless gloves for me - WIP
baby hat for charity
nyan cat bookmark
rock necklace

Divine hat in psychedelic  Wink
Bowl of petunias amigurumi
Dalek ami
Sesame Street yip yip alien amis
Nyan Cat guitar strap

and also find either a source of Vanna's Choice over here in Australia, or find someone who can tell me colour matches for the Doctor Who scarf in Australian branded acrylic. I want to start my scarf in the break between Nerd Wars rounds - or at least have it ready to go so I can use it as a dissertation come October 1st.

Okay, I'm going to slightly edit my list (it's before the 8th!), mostly because my mom decided that she wants me to make her dinner for her birthday, and that isn't going to happen until August is over. Roll Eyes

1. fix mom's necklace
2. wordy hoopla
3. finish Color Affection shawl - WIP
4. welted fingerless gloves
5. finish crazy zauberball socks - WIP

All but #1 are currently in progress! Smiley
