1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Re: Screen Printing with Drawing Fluid and Screen Filler - A How To at Home! on: April 09, 2013 07:27:47 AM
this is really cool- I'd always wondered how to screenprint.  Thanks for demystifying!
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Baby Blanket! on: October 28, 2011 02:36:07 PM
That's a gorgeous blanket!  And thank you for posting the link to the video.  I never think to go to look for videos to show me new stitches, which is silly because they are so much easier to learn that way.  Thanks again!

That's awesome! 

I'd say leave it as is.  The simplicity makes it look badass :p; adding music notes to it would turn it into the bad kind of cute, if that makes sense?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Magic scarf on: November 13, 2010 07:59:55 PM
This is GORGEOUS!!!  But I'm afraid I still don't quite understand how you made it Sad  .... could you give the name of the pattern?  Thanks so much for posting this!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: My very first Dress!!! on: September 10, 2010 07:43:01 AM
I think you look very glamorous!  If you're worried about looking fat from the back, just get a see-through length of fabric and use it as a shawl.  This is what I do with all my backless dresses- handy for keeping warm in the evening and covering your shoulders/décolletage if the wedding is in a church.
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: I <3 America -- 50 state embroidery on: August 03, 2010 04:14:56 PM
That's really cool!  Now I want to see if I can do something cool with our provinces and territories.... Nunavut might be a bit of a b***h though ;p  (see link for explanation of the Canada joke)  http://geology.com/canada/nunavut.shtml

The original cutout would be a good thing for elementary kids learning shapes and geography, too- I'm going to pass it on to a teacher friend of mine.

Thanks for posting!

My mom always told me that skirts should hit just below the knee, where the leg narrows from the calf.  It makes your  legs look more shapely (I usually shorten to 2 inches above my knee, after which my thighs start to widen Sad You look really good in it regardless, though!
8  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: corset boots on: July 16, 2010 06:01:21 AM
You are a GENIUS!  I have the same problem. (Seriously, do the women they use as lasts never walk?  I'm hardly an exercise fiend, and I've never once found a boot that will zip up that last 2 inches.)

They look really good.

As for the lace vs. ribbon, I'd say it depends on your outfit.  If you're hosting in a more girly outfit, I'd go with the ribbon, but if you're dressed in a domme-y outfit, I'd go with the lacing.  Maybe even make the lacing thicker if it's a big crowd, so they can see it clearly at the back. 
9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: My Little Kelpie on: June 20, 2010 08:39:01 PM
After a while it started looking like a My Little Pony , so I just went with it. With the red eyes I was going for malevolent, but I think I ended up with something between constipated and sleepy.

Hee!  There's nothing that says Kelpies can't be sleepy and/or constipated though, is there?  Even malevolent sea creatures have off days. 

Off topic:  I went to your geek crafts site, and I saw the ST diaper cover, which is really cute, but my wifey tells me that the 'red-shirt guys' always get offed by the end of the show.  This doesn't apply to red-diaper-cover babies too, does it? Shocked

Wow.  This is amazing.

Words fail me- this is just so beautiful and detailed and AMAZING!
