21  My first quilt (for a baby girl) in Quilting: Completed Projects by AshtonagoL on: April 13, 2010 10:42:19 AM
Just wanted to thank all of those who helped when I posted asking for advice on doing my first ever quilt!  I made this for my best friend's new baby girl.  I didn't know she was doing the nursery in a jungle theme until I had already bought the fabric so I added some jungle animal appliques.  Turned out pretty well for my first.  I noticed a few flaws of course but my friend didn't notice at all.  Anyway, here it is!

22  Pocket rosary? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by AshtonagoL on: March 13, 2008 09:52:39 AM
Hello!  I am not Catholic but I want to make a pocket rosary for someone who is.  I've found a ton of instructions on how to make a regular rosary, but none for the pocket rosary, also called a single decade rosary.  I started to make one with probably 9mm beads and there is no way it would be big enough to wear like a bracelet unless I put a lot of chain between the beads and the medallion.  So here are my questions:
1.  Is is meant to be worn like a bracelet or just slipped over a few fingers?
2.  If it is meant to be worn like a bracelet, is there a standard length of chain that you are supposed to use between the beads and the medallion in the middle?
3.  Do you have to use a crucifix or can you use any pretty cross?
4. Does the medallion in the middle have to have something specific on it?  Like the Virgin Mary?
Thanks a bunch!  Here is a pic of something similar to what I'm trying to make.

23  Need help designing a memorial tattoo in Discussion and Questions by AshtonagoL on: October 18, 2007 01:39:51 PM
Hello!  I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this but I'll start here.  If this needs moved, please feel free!  Thanks!
Anyway, my brother in law was killed in a car accident in June.  My husband and I want to get memorial tattoos for him.  I drew what we wanted and took it to the tattoo shop and the artist said it was a little too small to look good.  I'm wanting it on the inside of my ankle so I don't want it huge.  I can take this design and enlarge it but now I'm thinking maybe I'll just go a whole other route.  My reason for coming up with the mustang design is this...Ryan was a huge fan of Ford Mustangs.  When I got my first tattoo he was going to get the mustang emblem (like this one but w/o the circle) at the same time.  As it turned out, he didn't get it when I got mine, he got it later.  The vehicle that he had his accident in was a Ford Lightning.  Although he was my BIL, I considered him a brother.  I don't like Chinese symbols much but maybe Celtic symbols or some other symbol for brother.  I LOVE angel wings but not sure if I want them in this tattoo or not.  I'd like to have his initials and possibly 1976-2007 but I do not care for the traditional banner that you see on a lot of tattoos.  I'm having a brain freeze I guess.  I just can't come up with anything creative.  Any ideas?  I'd so appreciate it.  Thanks!
Here is my original design.  It's just a sketch.  The circle would look like chrome like the horse and would go over the red, white, and blue part.  The lettering would be black.

24  I know what I want to make, but not what to use -with pic now in Discussion and Questions by AshtonagoL on: August 07, 2007 03:27:32 PM
Hello!  I have been hired to make a cake for a 50th wedding anniversary reception. This will be my first cake for cash! Grin  I bought a regular wedding cake topper because I liked it better than all of the 50th anniversary ones.  But, I still want to get a gold 50 on the topper somehow.  I think it looks better in real life than in this pic but you get the idea.  (Sorry about the junk in the background, I was in a hurry).  Anyway, I was thinking I could either replace the dangling heart with a 50 or I could poke something onto bottom.  I also have a few little gold flowers I can add if needed.  Anyway, what should I make the 50 out of?  I thought of jewelry wire but I'm afraid it doesn't go too well with the topper.  I tried writing 50 with a gold paint pen on Shrinky Dinks but it looked yucky.  My only other thoughts were to cut an actual 5 and a 0 out of shrinky dinks, then paint them gold after they shrink.  Or to use polymer clay.  Any other ideas?  Oh, the little crystal heart that I'm thinking of taking off (the hanging one) is only about an inch tall, if that big. 
Thanks so much for any thoughts!
