#537: i did a lot: part III of III.

so. i was hoping to take a picture last night of the third project i tested out over the weekend. but i forgot.

i threaded parts of the invitation. i used regular string, double layered it, and threaded a small section of the fuchsia tree. i used orange on top of the leaves...but it barely shows. it's very anthro-inspired...so i happen to appreciate it. but fiance doesn't get it because it's not obvious.

"you can't see it!"

but as long as a few people notice it, love it, and know that i've pricked my finger a few times for this shiz, that's good enough for me.

i'll try to remember to take a picture tonight to show you.

p.s. the fiance, aka scientist wannabe, is now experimenting with making rock candy. srsly. will let you know how it turns out. as of last night, nothing grew.

that's what she said.

When I was in 6th grade we learned how to make rock candy--but yeah I've learned that pretty much no matter what, it won't grow as well as the kind you buy from the store. And it takes FOREVER.

I tried that in 7th grade. Make sure he doesn't dilute the sugar solution too much. And ditto on the taking-forever part.

Wow, definitely want pictures of your sewing project! It's such a great idea to give the paper extra texture. I'm probably going to print mine off on an inkjet, so adding thread would be fantastic! Thanks for the inspiration!!

I had more success with using salt to do it in 5th grade. Grew faster than the sugar rock candy. Also, if I recall, we basically doubled the amount of sugar/salt than the recipe called for, which helped a lot...
