1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / First Navajo Plied on: November 04, 2007 07:28:05 AM
I've been on Craftster for-EVER, but I think this is only my second project posted! In any case, this is merino/mohair that I snatched up from Rhinebeck. No name, because I am horrible at naming.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Drilling bone (or more specifically, teeth) on: March 14, 2007 08:08:04 AM
So in the midst of a spring cleaning frenzy, I came across my wisdom teeth, still in their little sterile baggie. Now, my boyfriend's birthday is coming up, and I don't think there could ever be any more romantic way to show someone you care than with a bracelet made out of your wisdom teeth.

So my question is:  can I drill through them? Will they crack? Would I maybe be better off wrapping them with wire? I mean, I only have four of them, and I'm rather attatched.

Hi, Valley-type craftsters! I'm starting at Greenfield Community College this year, and was wondering if there are any crafty circles in existence, or if any like-minded dudes or dudettes would like to start one.

Anyone want to get together for crafty companionship in Palmer/Belchertown/Ware/Hardwick/Warren/anywhere close by? I've been meaning to get a bunch of flyers up, but thought I'dd see if anyone bit here first.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / What's that smell [er, stain]? Cover it up! on: May 02, 2004 06:10:50 PM
Anyone who gets the subject reference is the rockin'-est person in town.

On with the crafting!

So, on a fateful New Year's Eve in Brooklyn, I happened to be drinking mulled wine at a party full of out-of-control hipsters. Of course, I spilled said wine on my FAVORITE DRESS. Heartbroken, I tried endlessly to get the stains out, but alas, my dress was forever stamped with the marks of par-tay-ing. Soooo, I decided that instead of trying to cover the stains, I should highlight them and make them beauteous. Here's what I came up with:

I used a zigzag stitch to secure the patches, which were leftovers from another dress I had cut and hemmed. The floss is six-strand and doesn't quite match the patches, but I like it just the same anyways.

P.S. My pictures are washed out like whoa. Forgive me.
