2011  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re:First Quilt, I'm a proud girly! on: January 27, 2004 06:27:20 PM
I made a really simple quilt in a week or two for my friend for christmas.  it didn't come out as well as I'd hoped, but it was still cool.  that reminds me, I must take a picture of it next time I'm over there...

hey, valentine's day is right after my and my boy's eight month mark!  what a coink-ki-dink!

I'm making my boy (hopefully!) a little photo album with some pictures of us from my birthday in it.  he has all these random photos that he has nothing to do with.  so, hopefully that will solve that!  he's also getting this cute little book I saw that's the world's history, only taken as quotes out of freshman test essays.  it's really funny, and he loves history.

I personally think that gifts are the best if they're what you really want.  I always just try and look at the person and see exactly what fits them, instead of what other people think should fit them.  even if the gift is very not appropriate for the holiday.  lol

good luck!

that reminds me of what my friend had in high school, only not as high tech.

she just took a pop tarts box, covered it in a couple layers of packing tape all the way around, inside and out, the top flaps too, and then just super glued some ribbon on as a strap.  I think she might have also used some velcro on the flaps, since they stoped closing nicely after a few days.

edit:  oh, and she was planning to make one out of one of those small sized cereal boxes that they sometimes sell in stores (not the tiny ones, the medium sized ones), but she never got around to it.
2014  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re:skirt from huge pants on: January 27, 2004 07:22:53 AM
well, for pants that are too small, I've successfully opened up the side seams and inserted strips of fabric.  everyone thinks it looks cool.  I think it should look just as cool if it were a skirt.
2015  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re:knitting with multiple strands (lots of pics here) on: January 25, 2004 08:11:33 PM
divasteph:  now that I think of it, both of those girls look really like my boyfriend's sister...  but as I have no pictures of her, I can't post them.

but it's really kinda scary...
2016  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re:knitting with multiple strands (lots of pics here) on: January 25, 2004 04:53:34 PM
hmmm....  looks like a good way to keep up w/ my knitting habit!  christmas presents for next year and something to do on the bus.  I've always steered very wide of all straight acrylic (except for a few times when I mixed it with another strand of a nicer, nobby yarn to take away from the ickyness), but those scarfs came out nicely.  and I can make a scarf for $4.50!  woohoo!

edit:  how many stiches did you cast on for the second scarf?  I just happen to have 15 size needles (well, cheap-o college student I am, they're dowel rods), but I always have a hard time judging wideness.
2017  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re:eye see you sketchbook on: January 22, 2004 06:56:32 PM
cool.

man, I wish they sold 80 cent sketch books at my college book store...
2018  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re:Big Wall II [ lots of pics!] on: January 21, 2004 02:15:22 PM
those 3M Command hook things work really well to stick stuff to walls non pemently.  a little more expensive than double stick tape, but they come off nice and cleanly.  you don't have the buy the actual hooks; they sell refills with just the stick tabs.  the only problem is that you have to leave the little tabs sticking out, but you probably wouldn't notice it much at all against white and so far away.

just to give an example of why they're so great, I used a 2 lb capacity one to stick a plywood shape to a kind of rough painted plaster wall.  it's been up for about five months with no problems.  I'm sure I could've used a smaller tab, but I had the 2 lb one left over.

wow!  I've never run into people in the same town as me, let alone both places I live!  Tyranny, do you know of any places in ann arbor that sell yarn or other crafty stuff?  (downtown / campus area mostly...  I don't have a car here)

CrazeeMoi, I'm from Plymouth, too!!!!!!

well, actually, I'm at UofM right now, but, I'm really from plymouth!  that's so cool!  Smiley
