1  UNITED STATES / Connecticut / Re: Connecticut yarn stores on: February 25, 2007 01:00:59 PM
there's a really great little yarn shop up by me. it's right off of route 6 in chaplin (windham county) called 'yarns with a twist.' it's owned by a super sweet woman named sandee. my mom and i go there frequently. there's yarn there for everyone--no matter what your budget is. some of the hand spun she carries is just gorgeous! i love checking it out every time i'm there, even if it's out of my price range!  Cheesy
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Any alternative looking people over 21? on: March 23, 2005 07:08:15 PM
thank god for all of you!!

i'm 24. i have 3 piercings (my most recent is my lip). i have 3 tattoos. the most visible is the star on my chest. it'll soon be added to with mermaids in honor of my grandfather who passed away when i was 13.

all you "alternative" moms are an inspiration for me. sounds corny, but it's not. i'm the way i am because my tattoos/non-conservative outfits are an extension of me. i worry that maybe i'll tone it down when i have kids--mainly b/c of pressure from other moms. peer pressure never really goes away. it's a fleeting fear, though.

in reality though, i'll always be me. i doubt i'll get rid of the piercings. the tattoos definitely aren't going away. and i really, really look forward to my kids having as much personality and confidence as i do. i think in order for our children to be proud of us, we need to be ourselves. in order to be a good mom, you need to be yourself.

this thread made me smile. Smiley thank you all for being yourselves! it's so hard to find where i live. everyone is a carbon copy of another person.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Apron tops, dresses, panel skirts... help! on: February 26, 2005 06:41:24 PM
The apron tops and dresses are as simple as they look. I've made a few myself. The biggest problem is making the pattern, but even that you may be able to find somewhere. I just used my measurements and messed around with white paper until I found a design I thought fit well.

I have very little sewing experience. In fact, purchasing real patterns makes me more confused than trying to figure out my own. I just used plain white paper to make the "pattern" and then I used a plain ol' sewing machine. Sergers amaze me, but they're not necessary for this type of work.

As for the peasant top, I'm clueless. I'm assuming you could probably embroider it by hand, if you desired.
