that is super cute and so original! i loved the top down view of your mom's "crate" (sorry, i don't know the proper word)- her crate was by far the best looking! people must have been just dying with envy over her cat quilt!

if you really want to do it, you should!

if you decide down the line that you don't like it for whatever reason, you could just let it grow in. if you don't do it, you'll never know .... Wink
45  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 250 yds mohair - what to make? on: September 23, 2005 11:11:28 AM
what about just doing really big stitches so that it looks lacey no matter what stitch you use?
and to preven curling, i would maybe sew some small beads to the bottom to give it a bit of weight, like so:

you could just intersperse the randomly on the bottom edge, or just sew some glass e-beads directly on the hem with a whipstitch.

i hope these help!

powdered sugar, add a bit at a time to potato till it is soft dough consistancy, chill 15 min, roll 1/4 in thick
beanut butter, spread thin layer on potato/sugar mix. . .roll up, chill, slice into 1/2 inch pieces

Grandma used to make this when she had just a tad bit of leftover potatoe. . .you don't taist the potato

oh wow! i made this at school when i was about 5. except we added peppermint extract and made little patties and dipped them in chocolate. they were soooo good! our little faces and hands were filthy, but we were all so happy and proud.

my sister got my brother's initials tattooed on her side after my brother died. i totally respect her choice, and admire her committment. but i worry for her that she's going to be stuck now with a permanent and sad reminder. i told her that if she's going to get anymore, she really needs to do it for herself and no one else.

tattooing is so personal. i don't know if i'd tattoo another person's name on my body- not because i don't love them, or worry about splitting up or whatever.

the reason i wouldn't do it is because my body is MINE. it's my temple. it's a living testament to all of my battle scars, wounds, experience and hard-won wisdom. some you can see, some you can't. and that's for me and ME only. i can share it with other people, but the bottom line is it's mine. i can't put another person's name on it for that reason. it has nothing to do with them- and everything to do with me.

sorry if i didn't explain myself so well. it's a feeling and something that's not easily explainable.

i wish you good luck- that's a tough and very sensitive conversation you're having. i hope it gets worked out to everyone's mutual understanding with no hurt feelings.

my 2 cents:

personally, i like to spend a bit more initially and have a few good items that i feel good wearing and know look good every time- like makeup for dummies.  it's best to have reliable staples you can use every day and just tweak if you need to.

i'd recommend:
blush: my favorite is Nars Outlaw. you only need a bit, and it makes you look glowy (and like the picture of health on pale, pasty days)

eyeshadow: Stila Golightly. My favorite. it's a combination of slate, brown and olive green with subtle shimmer. looks amazing on green and blue eyes. the nice part is a light dusting'll do ya for every day,  or you can really pack it on and it looks amazing.

lipstick, meh. i'll wear whatever. but i find outlaw and golightly to be idiot-proof every time.

hth!!  Smiley
