Let's get making! Answered

(THE FILTERS WOULDN'T LET ME THROUGH!!)

Well, summer is almost here, and that means 2 months (in my case) of pure FREEEEDOM!!!!

And what better way to spend the summer than catching up on a year and a half of making?

Some things have happened back here, so I don't have as much freedom as I'd like. My grandfather is staying with us, so I don't have as much free time since I have to take care of him.

Anyway, here's my checklist of things to make. If I make something, I will cross it out. My goal is to at least make 7 of these:

What about you guys? Got a list ready? Suggestions?

Chastity belt? I have nothing planned, I have two very unpleasant courses this summer, one difficult, one tedious.

Can't think of anyone else that's done it. I'd like to do a modern take on it. :P Plus, it was on the ibles projects board when I visited last summer.

Fabric TARDIS. Two Questions:

  • Full sized?
  • Will it work?

Full sized, on a frame made of thin wood or pipe. I never know until I finish it. I tend to wing things and fix problems as I go.

It's like that Ferrari one! A woman made a little wooden frame of a Ferrari then knitted around it.

I've not seen that before! Very nice! I'd like mine to be collapsible, though. So as to move it from place to place and take stupid pictures. :D

Oh, I know. I have a tiny little kitchen with hardly any counter space. I might need to rework everything before I start this quest.

Well, I plan on making my xbox live account a higher rank on Halo 3. If I get access to a (charged) camera and a USB plug to it, I may make an instructables about an electromagnetic fishing pole. Another cool thing would be how to legally get free xbox live gold membership (hint hint)

I have lots of plans, but sadly most of them fizzle out, either from lack of time or lack of funds or both.

I do want to get a few more entries into the LED contest however :-)

I also am planning on modding a couple of "wireless camera detectors I have.

I wanted to have a Show n Tell but I don't think it will come to fruition this year...and I am not sure if I will have the strength next year.
