cool for free stuff and for earning money at what you love--

see what happens with good crafty vibes?...I just happened to want to go to lunch at this bagel shop, only to find it was closed!  but, the owner saw me and asked if he could ask me some questions...I gave him my opinions and told him what I thought had to be done to make his shop more modern and appealing to younger people (dang--they are so close to the HUGE new high school!)...I suggested wi-fi and local artist to be featured on his walls...and guess who is going to be the first featured artist!!!  oh wow--I am so excited!!  I have three-four weeks to have a painting that he will buy and then two or three pieces to hang for sale!!  now I am going to contact a bunch of my friends to see if they want to participate!

I always get jealous when that hubby makes a full-time living playing and teaching drums...yay me--

juicebox--I have lots of beginner garden books that I don't need or want anymore...can I send you one?  PM me!

shhh--I love ravelry!!  So many beautiful and artistic pieces...but I rarely post there as I am intimidated a bit...but everyone seems nice and tolerates my newbie questions! ha ha

I never seem to mind ripping up knitting either...or sewing...I know it can be frustrating when I am in a hurry, but, I like you view that it is a learning experience!

What a lovely vision: crafting under a mellow wind chime...I would have to add a favorite drink with that picture!

40 people? wow...I have no pull, but I do like to throw in my two cents when we have "meetings"... plus, I know the darn ATC people <-----, kept subtley mentioning it and killing the administrators with "suggestions" until they gave in---ha ha--we were a persistent bunch...I think some of us were nearly banned for being outspoken, but, who knows, as more and more people come here, maybe a new board will happen!  In the meantime, we can adapt...I will go see your windchimes (I never would have thought to go to that board, however Sad )...hang in there!

link to instructions for making the passport wallet

bongirl5--you are so going to rock the wallet with your fabric choices and your practical sense--make it your own, baby!!

as far as the fabric I used--I think ebay, emerald city fabrics...I think...

yes--I think if the yarn were cut wider--I use thinner cuts for making my knifty knitter hats and I do like the funky knots...I would definitely do the knot in your post for a rug--it would make a nicer rug for the feet!

wooden windchimes sound the best to me--for some reason, the metal ones irritate the heck out of me...did you post your windchimes?  We really need a woodworks board!!!!  I am going to petition for that as so many people have asked me where to post these projects!! grrrr--we need this board!!!

guess you would have to post in house and gardens until then-- Sad

Pinokeeo--I try to cut in continuous strips starting at one corner and going almost round and round like a spiral--unless the sleeve is huge, I don't really use it as the yarn is short..tie the pieces together with a lose knot or you can wait until you knit/crochet it (that way, you can sort of adjust where the knot lands in your project!...you get some pieces sticking out, but it adds to the "yarn"... I also do this with old clothing and then use my knifty knitter to make hats and scarves out of it...nice to use up old clothing that not even the thrift stores want!! Cheesy

I know that KLking makes all sort of windsocks so I might have to ask her advice or have her make me one!! Cheesy

I love wind twirlers!!

wow TSM--you are putting us to shame!  Can't wait to see project #25!!!

I grow lavendar in a container and plop it right in the middle of a bed that has other plants...it makes it easier to cut and keep pruned (more pruning=more buds!!)...

I also grow herbs this way so I can carry them into the kitchen if I need to...and I use them as decoration around the house when we are entertaining...I love rosemary the best and dry them for future use...I use mint all year for ice tea and to make salves, but if you do not put them in a pot, they will overrun your yard and garden!!

ahhh--we are suppose to get spring weather starting tomorrow and through the weekend!!

omg--what a sweet garden---like a miniature world...not really practical for me, but now you have me thinking of other themes I might be able to do--I would love to do a froggy garden--I love frogs!

thanks retrorose!!  I have issues making a lot of dishes as hubby prefers vegetarian and I am trying hard to find things we both like!

I am going to try more onions as well and flour is now on the shopping list for hubby to buy tomorrow...I am determined to make this!

oh--and wouldn't we all love to see a Russian dish posted!  We are so international--maybe I will post sukiyaki!!

sorry for the confusion--I will fix it so it is a link--do not want to invade bongirl's post, even though we are buds!!

still hunting that link for those who asked for the Adorn pattern site...I just tend to forget stuff, so hang in there
