I LOVE Pancakes that sounds great, I also like the chocolate biscuits idea too.
Time to experiment :)

Sweet idea, Thor, but yeah, JAF won't take the repros (and they're adamant about it).

Actually, those were from the JAF facebook which do have to be printed, never had a problem with it at my local.

Yes MDF, today will aslo test the "doing it in the rain" capacity. I am sitting here looking at all my McCalls costume patterns, a rainy day possible project.

The real problem becomes posting coupons on eplaya. Never has been a go here. Lots of reasons other than commerce, as in limited time posts clutter up threads quite a bit. People know about JoAnns, they know about FB, pretty sure most users can put two and two together.

Bwahahahahahaha, yeah, the rebar's sitting out on the driveway under plastic :P while I am inside messing around on line. Starting to lighten a bit here though! :D

Good luck with your sewing! First step: cut out your pattern pieces, hold them against a garment that fits you, and say, "hmmmmm...."

Sort of a cross post, but oh well. Ordered scarves and dye for Dye with Dignity today. Now just little things on the to-do list left.

*edit to add: Of course now kendoll will have to hide all the scarves and dye from me. It's so much fun to create!*

Today's very important item was finally finding (after searching everywhere in the house/studio/garage/sheds) the missing black water bucket. Can't "DO" without it!

Sewed up a pair of metallic lizard print tails for my daytime poi. Put finshing touches on a playa coat. Worked on a brocade vest.

Started cutting out the fabric for my hubby's coat. Realized I cut half of the pieces wrong. Started to re-cut using leftover fabric. Realized the first piece I re-cut was still wrong. Said bad words & went to get a drink.

Then spent the rest of the afternoon out in the backyard playing with my new LED hula hoop :D

Maybe tomorrow I'll try the fabric cutting again...

Tried to work out whether I needed to get a new cash card for the USA. Got bamboozled by fine print when trying to work out the fees. Swore at lots of banks (under my breathe) then gave up.

Decided to try again in a couple of weeks. However, I’ll probably wait until the last minute again then end up just getting the same card I always use and then get mad at myself when it costs too much.

Meh

Still jumping up and down for Fishy!

Today was just a sort and organize kind of day. Removed some packaging, trying to reduce amount of space taken up in the house by miscellaneous burning man things.

Still no word on my appeal. Idle hands make for crazy brain.

Got my STEP ticket today, so now I can acknowledge all these other things I've been getting ready for August.

Before, they were for a nebulous camping trip or two sometime this summer. :roll:

Now, they're most definitely for Burning Man!!! :D
