21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: solution for rubbing thighs under a dress on: July 27, 2006 07:42:13 PM
Oh my gosh I had to reply to this!!!!

I dated a guy back in college that played football and he told me that the coach used to have them use Tripple A & D Ointment on the inside of their thighs for when they had chafing or "thunder thigh forrest fires".  The stuff works great for being preventitive as well as treating current "fires", isnt too expensive and is easy to find (Wal-Mart).

Big Girls Rock!!

Nifty version of the stitch bow binder!  I purchased my binder from Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon quite a while back when I fell in love with the Stitch Bow.... soooo easy!  And with the coupon it didn't hurt too bad Wink  ya gotta love not having to wind the floss on the stupid little cards!!!

Ha!  You crack me up!  Being a full figured gal myself I love shrugs because they do accent the "ta ta's" instead of the excess other stuff! Smiley  I LOVE this pattern and think you should go for iti... then send me the revisons you made to the pattern  so I can make it for myself too!  As for the "cutting you in half" issue.... not an issue at all.  It's more like cuttin off one third ......which will be good. 

Good luck!

Hi everyone....  I just ran across this post.  Has a name been chosen?

I'm better when I can talk it out and brainstorm with people but what abou Zakka Houston or Houston Zakka?  making the word Zakka the most prominent word.  For those of you who don't know what it means it is a Japanese terms generally meaning "a little of this, a little of that" .... here is a copy paste of some more info... Oh maybe Southern Zakka!  or Hot Zakka... ya know cause its so freaking hot here!  ok here is the more info about Zakka

******************
Zakka
"In Japan, all the 'small, various sundry products used in everyday life' are commonly called 'zakka,' a term which encompasses household goods, daily necessities and sundries. However, the specific range of products covered by this term is unclear. According to the Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry, the following eleven products fall under the definition of 'zakka,' . . . :
- Light sheet metal products
- Glass products
- Ceramics and simple china
- Fine ceramics
- Enamelware
- House furnishings
- Musical instruments
- Stationery
- Toys
- Leather products
- Leather shoes

However, this definition does not include products made from materials such as bamboo, cane, cloth and plastics, as well as various, small sundry goods being sold at hardware stores and kitchenware stores." - JETRO Japanese Market Report on Household Products, No. 55, March 2001, Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO).

Ok just my thoughts and ideas....

So far how many people are in on the planning of this?

Hey Dharmadog... I was just reading your post (not this one) about thinking of getting a kiwi.  I love mine.  I only spun on a drop spindle for a tiny bit... honestly it bored the heck out of me. I just finished my first spool of some kind of blend.  Still learning!  Anyway I say go for it and buy a wheel.  It's like driving a car..... once you get past the when do I push the gas you can pay attention to when you need to turn.  The man that taught me to spin on a wheel made me sit and spin it with nothing on it for a while till I got a feel for it.  You will love a wheel.  Just do it!

I got my black and white roving yesterday!  Love it.... I'm busy setting up my wheel so I havent been able to try it yet but I'm soooo freaking excited!  Next time I will buy more than 2 pounds.
29  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: New Ashford Kiwi - Finishing Suggestions??? on: March 29, 2006 08:14:05 PM
Thanks for your opinion.  I finally got my wheel and decided I wanted to keep the natural color.  I have applied wax and am now polishing it.  Her name is Earla... named after Earl.  Earl is the man who taught me to spin on a wheel and who sold me the wheel.  He is super cool... He gets "it" ... as in "understands why the heck I couldnt wait for it to come in!!" 
Thanks again for the opinion!

So I just bought a new Ashford Kiwi (unfinished).  I should have it in 7-10 days.... this is going to be a long 7-10 days  LOL 

My question is this:  What did you do to finish your wheel?  The man at the store said that if I wanted to keep the blonde/natural color I could just use some "insert forgotten brand name" wax on it.  Does this protect it enough?  Someone mentioned something on a message about it possibly getting dented if it wasn't stained... is there any validity to that comment?  anyone know? 
I'm also thinking I would want to use a black stain.  Any reason I shouldn't use a dark color?  Just asking for opinions!  Thanks so much.
