7531  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: cute sushi (for kids and otherwise!) on: September 21, 2005 08:46:36 PM
I know- the crazy thing is that in Japan the mothers there actually take the time to make their kids lunches (and their husbands too, I believe) like that everyday!!! Well, that's what I read anyway. Can you imagine? Somehow that seems kinda 1950's housewifey to me.. lol!

Yeah, I've heard of that too!  If someone did that for me, I'd have a hard time eating my lunch...because I would want to preserve the food art Tongue  I've noticed that the food presentation is usually superb at good Japanese restaurants.

Lady Clare, that's pretty amazing.  I adore food art Smiley

Ooops...my mistake  Embarrassed  Hopefully, something works out for you guys.  I attended my first SnB meeting last night and it was a small group.  Nevertheless, it's always great to meet folks who knit Smiley
7534  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Handmade greeting cards (lots of pics) on: September 21, 2005 07:11:41 AM
I like the card with the flower pots!  The colors are well-coordinated and it has a fresh, crisp appeal.  That's just my opinion though because I tend to favor cards with simple graphics.  Anything that has way too much overwhelms me  Tongue
7535  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: ZIPLOC FULL OF CRAFTY DOODADS 2! SIGN UP 15-22 Sept MAIL BY 30 Sept on: September 21, 2005 05:47:15 AM
Cowgrrl, this will be my first swap too!  I think a sandwich size bag is all that's required.  If you send a sandwich size bag filled with crafty doodads and your partner chooses to send you stuff in a bigger size bag, that's your partner's call.  It can't be held against you and you can't receive bad feedback since you've met the swap requirements.  From what I gather, a person would receive negative feedback if he/she flaked on the swap.  Again,Rakuette, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong about this.

Thanks guys  Wink  To be honest, I've had tons of practice handstitching.  I used to make fully-jointed miniature teddy bears (~ 2 inches) and they were all handstitched with nylon (invisible) thread  Tongue

I think that's exactly it!  As a general rule of thumb, everyone should plan on sending/receiving a sandwich bag chock-full of crafty goodness.  Obviously, it's important for partners to discuss the issue and make a final decision on the size of the bag.  Personally speaking, I would stick to the bag size that my partner and I agreed on.  However, if my partner chooses to send me a little something extra that didn't fit in the bag, I wouldn't make a fuss or feel like I've shortchanged my partner.  It's not a competition of 'who sends the better package'.  In fact, I'll graciously accept whatever's sent and feel blessed to have an awesome and thoughtful swap partner.  I always return or pass along the good karma...eventually Smiley

arrhythmia, the zigzag stitch idea has its merits.  If you make a placemat purse and zigzag stitch the seams, I'd love to see a picture of that!  My batteries are semi-charged (the dang thing takes too long to fully charge!?!) and here's a picture of the inside seam:



As I mentioned, I handstitched the untidy seams so that there are no visible seam-related stitches on the exterior of the purse.  What can I say, I'm fussy  Roll Eyes

Love both aprons...especially the cute pockets.  Nice job!
7540  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: good patterns for circs & dpn newbie on: September 20, 2005 07:27:04 PM
I'm trying to learn how to work with dpns too.  To me, the thought of having to work with more than two needles is a tad intimidating!
scarletkittycat, thanks for the link.  I think I will give that pattern a shot and see what happens.  I would keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best, but something tells me I'll be needing them when I try using the dpns... Tongue
