Things learned on a lazy Saturday...

(viewed 1118 times)
After asking questions about how I was making the baby blanket (not out of
real babies, though,) I taught Rob how to crochet today, and he's done quite
well!
In exchange, he's teaching me German longsword...

Craftblogging

(viewed 812 times)
I have a baby shower gift to make for a coworker, so I decided to
make another baby blanket. She mentioned that the nursery was very neutral colors, so they wanted to use accessories with bright colors. *G* I hope this is bright enough for the little boy, whenever he decides to come out and play.

Only have a few rows done, but not bad for starting after 8pm...

Craftblogging -the dreaded fourth curtain

(viewed 704 times)


This last curtain of the project has been sitting around as a lump of fabric for far too long, so after everything else, I decided I wanted it finished before tomorrow's brunch.

Blue upholstery fabric and pearl grey microsuede make for
fantastic (and cheap) blackout curtains, once the fabric has been laid out and the never ending seams are folded, pressed, hemmed and sewn (lather, inse & repeat until each side is completed, and then do the ends.)

Cupcake Math is hard

(viewed 1106 times)
For some reason, they came out all different sizes. Ah well, it won't
matter too much. After all, cupcakes are solely a vehicle to get frosting
to your mouth.The second picture is the chai banana bread, peppermint schnapps brownies
and homemade spiced apple topping I've made for the Guy Fawkes Day Brunch
tomorrow (hey, it's the best excuse for brunch we could come up with!) I've
been a busy little Boston baker.

Pumpkins accomplished

(viewed 1250 times)
Ok, so mine turned out to look rather like Cookie Monster.

And now, my favorite part: Roasting the pumpkin seeds! I think either curry or black tea roasted, as I have no wasabi powder on hand to make wasabi seeds...

The hand, endgame

(viewed 1386 times)
A few snips and tugs, and I had the stitches out. I figure it will take
about a month before I know if there will be any scar.

It's far easier to do makeup and vein-y designs when you're not in a corset and getting costumed yourself...
