Just in case folks here hadn't noticed, but voting has opened on most of the category challenges!  It's all very exciting. ^_^

thanks for the reminder!

I wish I had been able to complete my project on time, but as I said yesterday, I'm still stitching away.  Sad  but I'll start working my way through entries during my breaks so I can see what all has been made.

Will swap for ceramic bisque steer skulls!
Always in need of things like these!!!

Lovey patchwork and the Triptychs are great looking.

And I'd take some coconut shells.  I bet I could carve on them.  Even the broken pieces would do for me.

93. Two-headed cow (for Sideshow Swap!)

94. Rock Paper Lizard Scissors Spock Dice
Cue: group of friends, standing around glaring at one another
One of them, in a whining voice: "One of us has to stop throwing Spock!" 
Freeze scene
Deep announcer's Voice: If this is a common problem among your friends, what you need is the randomizing effect of RPLSS Dice! 
Same group of friends, laughing and smiling, using dice
Deep announcer's Voice: Kit comes with two pre-folded paper dice, a sheet showing what trumps what, and a PDF of both sheets in case you want to fold more*. 
Cut to ad screne
Deep announcer's Voice: Available for six low easy payments of...

*If you do what to fold your own, the PDF is here, no actual purchase necessary!  Wink

95. I have a love of those big plastic containers of fruit and nuts from Target, and a dog that sheds A LOT.  I'd seen those plastic snap-top yarn holders at JoAnn, but didn't really want to pay quite that much to keep my yarn dog-hair-free (as much as it can be, anyway).  I'd tried the two-liter bottle/zipper one, and those work fine for skeins, but not so much for the balls/cakes.  So I poked a hole in the top of the plastic lid of the fruit/nut container, slapped on a label, and there you have it!

The label reads:
My doctor said I need 25g of fiber a day.  I said "230 yards of laceweight?  That'll be tricky, but I think I can knit that much..."

And it has line drawings of a llama, goat, bunny, and sheep.

I love your running commentary, Smeddley, and the cow is too funny.

And I really like your recycled yarn holder.  Nice work.

My latest project:  I have been playing around with piano parts lately.  I had received an entire piano keyboard, minus everything except the keys and arms.  The person that gave me all these parts to play with issued a challenge.  Bet you can't make a clock out of these.  Well, I couldn't pass up a challenge like that, so here's my version of a piano arm clock.

All of the pieces were ground down on one end at a 7.5 degree angle per side, so that all of the pieces met in the middle.  Then I added a backer board to hold the clock mechanism, and cut to fit some clock hands and added numbers all around.

The arms aren't straight, so the clock looks a little tipsy, but I assure you it keeps pretty good time.

yoopidou, how are you opening the coconuts atm?  A machete is the easiest way to open one up.  If you want to take out the milk first the 3 dark spots on the top are usually the place to poke and put a straw into.  Smiley

Love your clock pinokeeo.  The nice fit in the center is a testament to your woodworking skills.  I bet you could make some nice things out of the coconut shells.  They carve them into pendants, make bowls out of them, etc. in Hawaii.

Ok, off to pack for our mini vacation.  Really can't wait!  The stress of work and Lana's darn choral video has been killing us.
