21  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / ANOTHER boy beanie on: March 31, 2006 09:55:52 PM
Humor me...it is my first project from this book but not the last...took me 2 nights of crocheting for short periods of time.  Thank goodness for great stressful work week projects, Ms. Stoller.  They are very few and far between.

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / furry hoodie on: February 05, 2006 07:15:27 PM
I was messing around with a hoodie for the hoodie swap and this is what I created. 

Thanks for looking.  It was inspired by a hoodie I bought ten years ago in NYC.





Another pic (not so dark):

27  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Jos Guadalupe Posada swap? on: January 07, 2006 10:33:37 PM
Any interest?

I first saw this light when I bought a tote bag with the famous image of his "Female Dandy".  His skulls are magnificent. 

On second thought here are some links:

28  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Tie Quilt on: December 20, 2005 10:30:14 AM
Here is my first quilt.  Bad pic but I will get more up.  I am just so proud.  My mom was my consultant, advisor and measurer.  The measuring and figuring out how to do each odd square was hard.  It is Grateful Dead tour shirts mixed in with some music shirts my husband had.  It is his Christmas present.  We just tied it.   

Here is a good pic of the process and of the entire quilt:



Here are some close-ups:





Now I just need to wrap it for Christmas!!!!  I am so glad I got it done it time.  
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Bust Dec/Jan 2006 Hat on page 85 on: December 14, 2005 08:56:47 PM
The hat on page 85 is super fine (Bust Dec./Jan. 2006; top pic and not the NY hat---the one with the circular thingers coming out). 

My husband was flipping through the magazine and was reading the article about men knitting, crocheting and was like, "Holy crap, I love this hat." 

Does anyone know where it comes from?  I will buy the book, magazine that it came from...I just want to know where to find it.

Maybe it isn't published??? 

Thanks for the help!!!!
