411  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: The Unconditional Swapper Swap on: September 19, 2005 06:14:53 PM
What a cool swap idea.  This is fun like nobody's business!  I have PM'd JazzyBee with my request to get involved in all this fun, so here is my wish list   Grin

1.  A couple of kanzashi flowers like those in this tutorial:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24944.0  Any color combination would be great, but it would be really super if they were in my old school colors of purple and white.

2. An Altoid tin covered in polymer clay, maybe with a Celtic design of some kind.

3.  A mini portrait of one of my dogs.  Hey, I know this is a huge request, so I will love you forever if someone actually does this.  It can be just a little doodle, sketch, charcoal, crayon, paint, whatever of one of my mutts.  Realistic or way out funky crazy colored caricature.  I have an Australian cattle dog and a sheltie,  I can provide pictures for inspiration.  Man, do I have pictures of those dogs....
  Woohoo!  I got picked - Thank You!  Grin

Wow, spaz2phreek, that pendant is cool!  Not having taken any jewelry classes, I have no idea of how you did that.  Very impressive.  I am in awe....

Oh I know!  "Sometimes it seems like the whole world wants a piece of me.  Can't I just get a day off for myself?"

What a hoot!  That might even get you some points with the instructor  Cheesy  But what I want to know is what did Buddha/Jesus/Ganesh just say to elicit Freud's trademark comment?  If we only knew....

Just a quick note as I don't have much time atm: I got my package and I love it! Thanks, Guin! PS. the scarf is supposed to be a scarflet; the flowers fasten it. It's supposed to be a posy to protect you from the plague. Smiley

Hahaha!  If only such things worked.  The scarflet sounds wonderful, and I cannot wait to see the plague-fighting posy!

Gorgeous book!  Journals like that would absolutely sell.  How did you include the bookmark into the binding?

Is wheat paste strong?
-  Last week I used homemade wheat paste to glue suede leather onto my book's wooden covers, and the paste is holding fine.

Does wheat paste attract bugs?
-  I did find this link:  http://www.jhu.edu/~jhumag/1198web/arts01.html which is an article about a preservation librarian from John Hopkins University who is trying to conserve and restore Cuban documents.  Bugs and acidification are both problems with the archives, and she uses wheat paste and Japanese tissue for mending.  If it is good enough for her, it is good enough for me  Smiley

-  I also found something here:  http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node=wheat%20paste  The second article on this site states it is the gluten in the paste which attracts bugs, so you want to use pastry, cake, or bread flour for making paste since they contain less gluten than all-purpose flour.

Thanks, viburnum, for asking the bug question.  I would never have thought to look this up if I had not read your post  Cheesy
418  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Tea Party Purse on: August 29, 2005 07:08:21 PM
Your are just ahead of me now.  I stopped when I needed to decide which yarn to use for the straps, and I have not bought the o-rings yet.  I do not know how to crochet either, but I thought a friend could show me just enough to do the o-ring things.

As a side, my husband put my bag on his head like a hat, and it looked pretty darn good!

Awk!  How many poles does he think he can hold at once?  Great pillow!

I am definitely interested in a round two, should there be one.  Just cannot get enough medieval stuff!
