The fabric is from Spotlight which dosn't normally have such awesome prints.  It's Cranston Village if that's any help?

Ah, I found it via google, but it looks like they only ship to retailers. Alas, I'll have to just keep a keen eye out for stuff like this next time I go shopping, or perhaps scour the local thrift stores for stuff I can salvage. Thanks for the info, though.

Re: The string lines picture thingy. That is the most MESSED UP assignment I have ever heard of, I think. Your teacher is cruel. The whole thing just conjures up images of glue-caked fingers and imperfectly aligned bits of string...you did well with it though.

I like your monochromatic piece. I always make that same mistake with the words...you assume they'll "pop" because of the white spacing, but instead they end up just blending in. Frustrating.

Good work!

I LOVE THIS. I like revamping old jeans, and I have a pair of my own that I've added about 20 different patches to, but I can't wear them until after I have my baby  Angry I've always wanted to beatles-esque mine.

Where on Earth did you get that awesome fabric, though? There's no way I'd be able to find it at my local craft stores.

Well I kept wondering if you needed the tape at all. Tape keeps it in place, I guess, but you're probably not going to take the end off again, so it can't go anywhere. Maybe you could see what it looked like first without anything? I wouldn't think a glue stick would be strong enough though--I'd probably coat it down with mod podge and let it dry.

But then again, I haven't tried it at all yet, and I use mod podge on everything anyway. It's my default.

This is AWESOME! I always somehow end up with gobs of these after Easter, even though I have no children yet and don't live with any. And I hate throwing away perfectly good containers.

I really want to do this one, but I'm a newbie; is that okay? I looked for a general Challenge Rules sticky, but couldn't find one. Do I have to have a certain number of posts or anything?

Wow! I guess it helps to work in a place that has a steady supply of them. I wouldn't want to drink that many sodas (since I don't drink beer). I would have expected it took longer, though. You did a great job!

0_o That is mind boggling. I used to collect pop tabs obsessively when I was younger, but I never managed to get that many. You said she gave you the pattern and you made the vest yourself? How long did it take? Looks awesome!

They're very pretty. Craftsterism runs in the family, I see. And that little owl is adorable!

Craftrica, I love those writing prompts! I always like doing small character sketches or poetic narratives about the things I see around me, but lack the energy or interest in writing fully-fleshed out stories. I've been wanting to revive my fiction writing for a while, and hopefully this can help me now that I've started journaling again. Thanks for the link!

I also like the couples journal idea, and think it would make a nice therapeutic exercise. Many couples have trouble communicating with each other verbally, and have many problems stemming from it since they don't realize how differently they think about things. Sharing a journal would be a nice way of sorting out each other's feelings and maybe coming to an agreement about their problems.

Yeeeah, sorry to bump an old thread, but is the Yarn Palette still in business? I've driven past there on occasion and know where it is, but it looks rather like the sign's falling apart. I didn't know if that was due to abandonment or just because it's old.
