1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / A baby blanket, using stash fabric on: March 30, 2007 08:51:21 PM
I really like patchwork, but I really dislike the actual quilting process - I've a tiny sewing machine, it usually turns out wonky and lumpy and awful.

So this time, I decided to avoid all of that by just piecing the top and backing it with a cute flannel. (I feel really lazy, but hey. It worked and looked good.)

All the fabric was in the stash already, and the half-triangle squares were left over from an earlier project, so I felt very thrifty using them up.

I'm a little bummed cause I gave it to a friend for his new baby, but his wife was really lukewarm. She was like, oh, its reversible. Pah. Ah well. It was fun making it.

2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Notecard swap? on: December 18, 2006 02:52:52 PM
Not sure if this has been done before, but would anyone be interested in a notecard swap? I never saw a notecard that I didn't want...

I figure if people can sign up for sets of 4 notecards - so if they choose to make 1 set, they receive 1 set, and if they choose to make 4 sets, they get 4 sets back, and so on.

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Do you use Etsy to buy commercial supplies? on: November 02, 2006 10:33:21 AM
I'm kind of curious about people who sell commercial supplies on Etsy. Does it work, or is a dedicated website just for supplies better? Where do you guys buy supplies from (apart from Joanns or Michaels, of course?)
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Coasters help - how do I seal a photo on a coaster? on: May 17, 2006 09:59:51 PM
I'm trying to make my boyfriend some coasters, except I don't know how - hoping someone can help?

I have these cork coasters that I'm trying to glue some photos on. But I figure to be useful as coasters, I'll need to seal them pretty well, so the paper doesn't get soaked through. Problem is, I have not the slightest idea what product to use.


5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Room and Board furniture - my version! on: April 13, 2006 08:16:59 PM
I'm in the process of buying a new camera, but I wanted to share a project I did a couple of years ago. I saw this shelving unit at Room and Board, but it was ridiculously expensive and looked simple to do.

After some calculation, a long shopping trip at Lowe's, and some labor, here's my version...

Basically, Lowes cut sheets of MDF into the sizes I needed, and then I just screwed them together, and painted. It took a couple of days, but it wasn't hard to do.

(And my apartment is always a mess, unfortunately.)
