11  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / my machine will not obey me! help! on: July 16, 2006 11:49:11 AM
every time i try to sew things together, they end up gathered a little bit. it's not a huge problem, because i can just pull on the ends of it, and it straightens out, but it's really annoying. anyone know why it's doing this, and how to fix it?
12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Newbie's question about fabrics on: July 09, 2006 11:34:51 PM
So I'm making a quilt for my boyfriend (which I've mentioned in almost everying single one of my posts here haha), and I want to put a little square on the back with when I made it, what I made it for (our anniversary), some small bit of text about us or something, etc. I don't know what fabric to use for it, as I've never embroidered before, but I've never quilted before either, so I might as well make this even more complicated lol. Anyways, I'd probably embroider all the words on it (which could range from "August 20 2005 to August 20 2006", or that and a sentence or two), and I'd also embroider some nice bordery type things on the outside edges of it, just to look nice. So what kind of fabric should I use? The rest of the quilt will be in 100% cotton calico, if it matters.
13  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / quilts in california? on: July 06, 2006 07:24:59 PM
So I've been planning (as of last night) to make my boyfriend a quilt for our one year anniversary, which is August 20. We live in upstate New York, so I wasn't concerned about the quilt being too hot. Except I just found out he's moving to California at the end of August. I still want to make the quilt, of course. I've never been to California, so I have no idea if a quilt would be useful, and if I should put batting in it still, or anything. I'm intending it to be useable year round, too.

I probably really don't need to be asking this yet, but I only found out an hour ago and nitpicking over details will stop me from focusing too much on how much this all sucks.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting a sock on: February 25, 2006 09:13:35 PM
I'm knitting a practice sock (it's meant to teach you the basics of sock-knitting, link = here) and I'm doing fine so far. I got through the cuff, and I got through dividing the stitches to start the heel. That's when I got stuck. It seems like no matter what I do, it comes out purl on the knit side. It's making me really mad. Help?  Huh

Oh and hi, this is my first post.  Smiley
