Don't worry, if anyone can understand being too absorbed by tomatoes to do anything else, it's me. And, hey, you were trying to do both projects! Such an overachiever.
Me, I only did the one. But I will say - I'm loving my basket.
And by basket, I do mean, the tubTUB for my Smart Balance. It now lives in my fridge, holding securely to my SB (or whipped butter when we're feeling indulgent, which is often) and a butter knife and every time I open the fridge, it makes me a little extra happy.
I'm just glad to see that other people liked this project enough to make it. I was a little afraid that everyone would be, like, Aw crap, I already have a hundred baskets, I don't need another one and then not do the project, but no, you're awesome and so are your baskets.
Especially nice, actually was nutsycoco's basket, which I liked very much. Honestly, this is something I would expect to see in a museum or something. Whether it's the fabric or the stitching or the craftsmanship, I dunno, but it's rockin' and, so, nutsy - you win!
Shoot me your full name and address to finnyknitsATgmailDOTcom and I'll ship you off your prize. Congrats!
Now, for March's projects.
Sewing project: Crooked Coasters
And don't worry if you want to make them both because I do and, likely, I will, because as soon as Bubba sees that there's pizza dough in our craft: along he's going to begin reminding me about it on a daily basis until it exists as dinner.
It is likely that I will rename it, "Shotgun pizza".
I suppose if you wanted to get all supah crafty you could make a round crooked coaster and call it a pizza coaster and put your 5 minute pizza dough pizza right on it, but I'm not saying you have to.
Just remember to photo your project and add it to our pool so that next month Kelli will have everyone's entries from which to choose a winnah.
And don't you want to be a winnah? I know I do. Sadly, I am out of the running. No matter how awesome my crocked pizza coaster turns out. Not that I'm making one! I don't know yet.
Anyway, have fun this month and let us know if you've seen anything (or any category of things; knitting, embroidery, plush body parts, Splenda crafts) on the Craft blog that you think we should try to include in future months' "Other" projects. And then we will think a lot about incorporating them.
