My stupid life

What are you doing here?

Go eat a tofurky or something.

We got an early start on the holiday feasting this year, starting with our vegan ham roll (not as good as we hoped), and we've had so many tofurkies and the like that Min is getting fancy with them now. She put today's in a pot pie (also more convenient for bringing to the homestead).

Bluespawn Godslayer included for scale. Actually, it's a Thanksgiving Bluespawn Godslayer. They're weak to mashed potatoes.

Things You Can Do With Diapers

We needed a Suggestion/Opinion box for a baby shower. Since we were low on table space, i decided to make the "activity" into something that could also be considered "decoration". Luckily, nuttier people than i already came up with the idea of a "diaper carriage" and posted videos on YouTube on how to make one.

That's right. I made carriage wheels out of diapers.

At the event, i stuck flowers into the axles so you couldn't see the paper towel rolls.

I had to buy this bib.

More importantly, the tape held all the bits together long enough to get to the end of the event.

I also made a bunch of centerpieces with jungle animal (giraffes live in jungles?) wood toppers i bought on Etsy. I only got a semi-blurry picture of one of them. I meant to take a shot of all of them together to show off my fantastic hot gluing skills (i.e. i didn't burn myself), but didn't manage it (ok, i admit i'm a little bitter about not having that pic), so you get one. Imagine seven more, each with a different animal. And less lopsided.

Baby Blanket

I needed to knit something for a baby and seeing as i'm only qualified to do flat things, i made a blanket. I found the pattern on Ravelry, but the pattern was wrong (as so many commenters pointed out) which meant i had to first figure out what was wrong and fix it before i could even start knitting it. And ofc because why do something easy, i deliberately picked a pattern that involved stitches i was unfamiliar with. So, yeah, that was fun. Took me the entire summer to knit this blanket. I gave up my plan to re-read all of the Hitchhiker's Guide books to work on it. I've told the parents-to-be that their baby better be wrapped up in this goddamned blanket every single time i saw it. They could keep it (the blanket, not the baby) stowed at the bottom of some drawer the rest of the time but it had better be out when i was there.

It's machine washable and dryable and yellow hides spit-up stains best, so you're welcome.
