Here is the sushi roll unrolled. It is completely double crochet (except for the foundation chain) The directions read to do so many stitches or measure in inches. I crochet rather loosely..so I used a tape measure. The long section of white rice is 36" long. The pattern is from AllFreeCrochet.com. I can e-mail the pattern to you if you want to send me your e-mail. Otherwise, just check out the site..it's great!

On a different note...I am trying to get my etsy store up and running. I haven't added anything yet but will soon. Just learning my way around it first. My store is going to be called SimplyHomeCreations.

Let us know when it is official, Julie! Yesterday and today I have been making black walnut ink. I'm putting it in 4oz. jelly jars for gifts to my artist DS, DGDs, and DSIL. I'll keep an eye on it for awhile since this is the first time I've made it. Next year I will brew it outside at the fire ring. This will give me time to acquire an iron pot. The process sure stunk up the house. DH was very patient, and did not complain. But...P-U! I strained the muck outside, and felt very backwoodsey

I will let you ladies know when I get my etsy store up and running. I need to learn how to get the pictures transferred onto the computer, set up pricing, and a number of other things. Hopefully it will be going around the first part of December.

Everyone's projects are so cute. You all are getting a jump on Christmas for sure. I posted on my blog the latest yarn that I spun http://farmsteadfripperies.blogspot.com/2011/11/spinning-my-wheels.html plus a step by step of how I did one of my Marquetry fine art pictures http://farmsteadfripperies.blogspot.com/2011/11/place-where-imagination-and-spirit-met.html if anyone is interested.

Blessings, Sheri

With the blizzard we got one of my small freezer doors got open by thawing bag of deer legs...my neighbors father got a deer last year & I ask for the legs...I boiled them outside in sal-soda...like baking soda to remove hair, skin, meat...& now I have them drying so I can cut them to make bone buttons....instead of cutting them so the hole where the marrow is you split them length wise so that you can cut out semi flat buttons & drill the holes how you want them....I hate wasting anything & the legs always get dumped so I now ask anyone who gets a deer ect if I can have the legs for this project.....yeah I know its not a traditional craft normally listed here but thought some might be interested...have been sewing also..got skirt done & working on a top, another skirt & a pair of legging type pants.....Michele'

Wow! I am impressed! Bone buttons. Well, how did I think they were made?

Michele, that's awesome about the buttons. Do you sell online?

Here's an Amigurumi cupcake. Amigurumi is for the whole classification of crocheted toys, objects, or anthropomorphics, in general. Some are just toys and some are very detailed and artistic. This one is a pattern I bought off Etsy.

Oh my goodness you all are so talented. Love the zebra hat..soooo cute!! I know adults who would wear that with pride too!

I have not yet tried amigurumi...too many increases and decreases for my abilities, but I love it..a plate of those cupcakes would be darling!!

Bone buttons...ah, a woman after my own heart. I would love to see some of your finished product...not the skinning and de-fuzzing part though...I'm not FarmGirl enough to be able to handle things at that level....lol.

Sheri, your plied yarn is gorgeous. I can only imagine how beautiful something would look made from that. And your marquetry work is outstanding. The shell on the dragon reminds me of a photo album my father brought back from Korea that had some beautiful marquetry and inlaid shell on it. I used to sit with that album in my lap and wonder about those far away places it came from. The message on your blog is very inspiring. I used to feel the same about compassion and assuming others' problems to the point of avoiding people with problems because I absorbed too much from them. It took some very determined centering to get over that. Very good message.

Julie, how is the Etsy store development going? Mine is stalled, just like my projects...I'm getting way behind on my crafting...starting to go into withdrawals.

Thanks for the kind words about my art everyone. We sure do have an amazing amount of talent in this sisterhood. Anyone have anything planned out of the norm for 11-11-11?
