1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot Themed Swap on: September 28, 2008 07:32:32 AM
I couldn't find any swaps with a Miss Marple theme!! Does anyone love her as much as I do?!

Some ideas for items to craft:
knit/crochet fingerless mitts
tea cozies
pillbox hats
embellished notepads (to write clues down in of course!)
embellished eyglass cases
bookmarks
golf club cozies (oh how she loves a good game of golf)
knitting project bags
large totes

I was thinking 6 pts or 1 large 1 medium and 1 small.... starting mid to late October and finishing mid to late November.
Anyone interested?!?
 Grin
*Updated to include Hercule Poirot!
I'm already thinking, trains, bowler hats and moustaches
any more ideas?
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / STELLA!!! I love your hat! on: August 26, 2008 12:08:22 PM

Here is my version! Knitted up in Malabrigo worsted "snow bird" colorway... which doesn't make any sense. It should be named "apple harvest" or Red Delicious.
Knit this hat... you will LOVE it... oh and make sure your kids aren't yelling at you while you are doing all the decreases in the top.




3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Blood Orange and Chocolate Cake *ahem* Soap on: August 26, 2008 11:43:01 AM
I wanted to make a soap that reminded me of my earliest memories in Sicily...
People are always telling me my soap smells "good enough to eat" so the idea of making cake came to me last fall. I use the cold process method of soapmaking. The chocolate is a special kind from Grenada.
Thanks for looking!


4  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / PUMPKINS AND JULY 4 on: June 30, 2008 10:26:24 AM
I just wanted to let everyone know (in case you didn't already) that if you want to grow pumpkins (VERY FUN) for fall, you should start your seeds this week. Plant pumpkins around the 4th of July so you'll have them for Halloween carving fun  Grin
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Bowling Ball Garden Sphere on: June 30, 2008 09:24:06 AM
Bowling balls can be found easily at yard sales and thrift stores- apply glass stones, pennies, buttons, spray paint- whatever you want and voila! A neat sphere to accent your garden! Use an industrial strength epoxy though! This one pictured is about 3 years old and has never been taken indoors during the winter- which is recommended.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Antique Style pintuck dress for baby on: June 26, 2008 06:30:07 PM
My Mother whipped this out for my little baby girl a couple of days ago. I just love it! I think she looks like a little doll baby. She's 10 months old btw and quite edible. Mom initially used a pattern but modified it quite a bit with the pintucking along the bottom and the collar. She made the little rosette from scratch and used antique buttons (from a large old collection) on the back. The fabric is white and blue calico cotton that was on sale and Mom (memaw) said total dress cost was under $2.00. Gotta love that!



7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Wrap dress kit from etsy Re-post on: June 26, 2008 10:44:47 AM
I first posted in the other completed project forum and then realized I prolly should have posted here first.

So, I found this (kit) dress on etsy last December and said to myself: I must have it, because if I do, I will transform into an french country farm girl and be able to pick lavender all day. Having no real sewing skillz myself, I enlisted my Mom for help *ahem* to sew it for me Smiley Anyway, I bought it back in Feb. and I just got it yesterday (June) I lurrve it. Hubby hates it, but I don't care!! Should I post this in curvacious?? Grin Check out the designer's blog: http://malphi.typepad.com/

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The sun shirt (vintage transfer) My first completed project post! on: June 23, 2008 10:15:15 AM
My 2.5 yr old son is always wanting me to "sew him something". I found an old DMC booklet at a yard sale and transfered it (the sun) to -a (yard sale) shirt for him and spent about a week in spare time working on it. He loves it and it fits his style. He sings Johnny Cash and John Denver songs all the time with his little guitar. The action shot isn't very good... jumping on Daddy's lap first thing the morning (hubby would kill me if he knew this pic was being posted Muhahaha). This is my first attempt at satin stitch and french knots and I would have made other color choices if I had planned it out before starting. Whaddya think?

10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Hot Process soaping on: May 12, 2005 02:22:08 PM
Hey all you soapers out there!! I want to try hot process soaping - specifically cooking it in the oven. DH seems to think it will add loads of time and energy to the cold process method and therefore increasing the price per bar to make (yes he is that anal). Just wondering if anyone else does hot process and if it does add more cost to make it that way.

Thanks in advance!!!!
