Wulf are you a costumier??

No, I'm a prop builder, but I used to do costume accessories, and the line between props and costumes is pretty fuzzy at the best of times.

Wow! Another thing I can add to the "Why I love Craftster" post is that other people's lives show how meaningless my own problems actually are! My strongest wishes for Strength and Wisdom to you ladies, and I admire your ability to craft through even this turmoil!

Myself, I'm pretty much done my package for Ffrogg. I just have to try to find a working camera to take a couple of photos, and a box big enough to hold it all. Should be in the mail on the weekend.

Brilliant! If your cousin's wife doesn't recognize Conan immediately, then she's either too dumb or too young. It's a great likeness!

Absolutely wonderful! I think you've invented a completely new needlework technique. What will you call it?

"From the Neck Up" is an absolute classic in theatre costuming. And one I don't have myself, so I wonder if I should leave this Amazon page open on the computer in hopes that someone in the family notices... Cheesy

The 5-year old in me immediately coveted this. Did you apply the road on top of the town-and-countryside print, and if so, what is it made of?

Yes, this weekend is slightly crazy (and some of us have cupcake competitions) but if we were to meet up next Sunday, we could include a visit to the exhibit FOR KEEPS: A Mending Show on Queen St. Sounds interesting, and it would be easy to incorporate a Queen West visit into our Christmas shopping frenzy that would probably be going on that afternoon anyway!

I have to "replace" almost everything at Christmas - couch pillows, curtains, dishes and cups, etc.  Quite a chore!

I see that kind of stuff in stores every year and think "Who would buy those? You'd have to swap out all your normal stuff every Christmas!" Now I know! I don't doubt it's a lot of work, but it must look great when you're done.

And remember, Monnie, this is supposed to be a time for miracles, so your package could get to Switzerland faster than you think!

I've realized that I don't have the right shade of purple thread, so I have to hike to the sewing shop before it closes. Fortunately it's only a few blocks away.

I wasn't quite 18 when my mother gently suggested that it might be time for me to move out on my own. I agreed with her, so I didn't really think about why my parents were ready to get rid of me, or how hard it must have been for them to do it. We got along quite well, so I think it was probably just that they realized the time had come and that I wouldn't leave the nest without a push.

I wasn't ready to go to college, so I moved to Edmonton, which was the nearest big city (about 10 hours away), where I got a wretched little apartment in a bleak part of town and got a job with a secretarial temp agency. Because I was never around anyone my own age, it was pretty lonely for the first couple of years, but I gradually made friends and was happy enough living on my own. Especially once I was able to find a better apartment! One benefit of being alone was that I went to more theatre and movies in those few years than I ever have since. No, not because it was a way of forgetting my misery for a few hours, but because it's just so much easier to do something like going to a play if you don't have to plan around anyone else's schedule and preferences! When it becomes a "date" it's often just not worth the hassle. Cheesy

I've got my stocking figured out at last and am starting on it tonight, along with a couple of the items that need to "stew" for a while.
