Maybe one day if I win the lottery, I'll have a staircase that looks like this.

I found this site awhile back.
I want to try most of them.

The first one looks pretty easy and I need an outside table.

Great idea for a topic to share ideas. Smile

I totally missed 5.
Love it too.

The light bulb one you posted is gorgeous but how do you get the filament stuff out of the bulb?

It would be neat to pull out my sewing machine one day and make a few of these.

lol ... Yeah, I will need a set of stairs and a two storey home for those too Fleas.

I like this closet idea with wheels at the bottom of the storage to open and close the closet door easier, with not much weight on the door.

Making your own laundry soap. I've always wondered if making your own laundry soap really cleans your clothes. Will have to try this one day and see. The cost breakdown compared to commercial made laundry soaps, states that it's supposed to cost less than 1cent.

Bullet, I thought it was a blanket but it's actually a poncho. The pattern is hard to reach, I'm going to check Micheal's and see if they might have the pattern there.

https://picasaweb.google.com/107633384795586606813/MANTELLEPONCHO4#5386790706333875010

After you click on the link there is a faint left and right arrow, click the right arrow twice and it should bring you to the part of the pattern. You'll see what I mean by it's hard to read the pattern. There are about 7 pages to the pattern.

Eeep! IMHO, its too busy for a poncho... but a blanket would be nice.

ETA: Thanks for the linkage, it is hard to read.

The pattern's in this book:

http://www.amazon.ca/Crocheting-Edge-Bobbles-Ruffles-Scallops/dp/1933027355/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1325595920&sr=8-1

I really don't like it as a shawl, would have a hard time getting to the front door with all those dangly things and my dogs, LOL. But it looks like it joins together flat, so it would work well as a throw... without the dangly things.

Here's a blog with pictures of it as a shawl. Looks ok from the front but the back... I just don't care for it.

Top left picture is the shawl laying flat. Make two and join them at the "top"?

The poncho reminded me of this blanket.

I'd love to know how to make something like that.
So pretty.
