Share your crafts, show what you make, or what you want to make!

I just saw this super-cool tutorial on how to make a mummified fairy. The end result is creepily awesome.

I want to make a child-size apron for my sous-chef, only I don't have enough of the fabric from my apron left and I really wanted them to match... *pouts* I suppose I could make a whole new set of them. I will make /two/ child-size versions, so I don't have this same problem in another couple of years!

The mummified fairy looks quite good, except for the wings. They're far too fragile to survive the mummification process!

Okay, so, I don't like to brag, but I am fairly handy in the kitchen. I loooove to cook and to bake (just not so much with the cleaning up afterwards), and I found the cutest things that look so easy to make and are absolutely adorable.

I give you....Mummy Cupcakes!

D'awwww! Those are fantastic!

I made a super autumn vegetable soup last week. Ate the last of it for lunch today, alas.

Mmmm, I made Butternut Apple Harvest Soup a couple weeks ago. It was yummmmy. I'm still working on perfecting my apple cinnamon french toast...for some reason my oven doesn't like cooking it...

I'm crocheting a scarf and it started out fine, but now I'm not sure what's going on with it, but it has me worried.

I love cooking and baking. I won't even get started on that. Besides, it's probably dwarfed by Shar's ability to make practically everything under the sun from scratch tongue.gif

I AM currently looking for new needlepoint projects though. My hoops got put away for a long while when I was doing my MA and then this last year when I just had no time at all. But now I have time... I want to get started again. Any suggestions? Cross-stitch and embroidery preferably. I can do tapestry and latch-hooking and all the rest, but they bore me a little and because usually they're more chunky, the result doesn't come out as nice looking. I might at some point upload a pic of the sepia-toned sleeping tabby I did for my sister (who has a sleepy tabby smile.gif ). If I can find it.


ETA - also, I have a copy of the wartime "Make Do And Mend" advice pamphlet that I picked up when I went to Bletchley. If anyone ever is interested in exceprts from it, I'm happy to copy out. History and domestic crafts all in one... wink.gif

Aww, Vikki.... you're way too sweet.

Practically anything, eh? That sounds like a challenge to get out a baking book and start looking into making puff pastry. :-D Not that I haven't been tempted for years...

If cooking counts as a craft... this weekend I plan on

Friday night:
Bread 'n spreads (usually storebought hummus and homemade garlic spread)
Potato-carrot soup with white beans and alphabet noodles
Stuffed flounder (because I just couldn't get enough of it at the dinner party last week)
Zucchini sticks (weekly experimental recipe)
Edamame salad with radishes and corn
... and I haven't decided on a dessert yet.

Saturday lunch:
Bread 'n spreads
Chulent (slow cooked bean stew)
Potato kugel
Edamame salad
...and /still/ haven't decided on dessert. There might be chocolate pudding involved, only the last bar of chocolate I got was really low quality, and that reflected in the pudding. :-\

If I wind up with lots of time and energy I might make lentil pastries, my son's been begging for them since we finished the last of the ones I made for the recent holiday.
