I just finished this apron.  It's a Christmas present for either my sister or my sister-in-law.  I have enough fabric, so I think I'm going to make another one, so I can give one to each girl.

Anyways, I based it off this one: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129867.0 but made it with a halter top, changed the sides and left off the pockets.  This is the first time I've made something without a pattern.

The top is a bit big on me, but both girls are a bit bustier than I am, so I think it's ok.

1693  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Need a new idea for mom... on: December 13, 2006 12:35:30 AM
Maybe one of these will give you a nudge towards something your mom would like.

My mom always likes jewelry.  You could thread some beads on wire and knit a bracelet. 

Sentimental things can be good for parents, too.  You could make a calendar with pictures of your family, starting when you were a baby and write down all the important dates for her (b-days, anniversaries, etc.)

My parents are into wine (they like to make it and love to drink it) so I'm going to create a logo for them and etch it onto some wine glasses, like the ones that you get when you go wine tasting. 
1694  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Computer Wreath (complete w/ photos) on: December 13, 2006 12:23:21 AM
Wow... That has got to be the geekiest wreath I have ever seen.  I love that it glows.  do you have any "action shots"?

It would be really sweet if you went all out with it and made it do more stuff, like play music or light up to form different holiday images or something else that's really spectacularly nerdy that my sleepy brain can't think of at the moment. 

Anyways, I'm diggin' your 1337 wreath Wink.

hmmm... one year for Valentines Day, for my husband, when we were dating, I did an Amalie style scavenger hunt.  I took a bunch of polariods of places and left little gifts at each place with the pic of the next place.  I just got reminded of that because one of the places was my ceramics locker on campus.  (the combo lock made me think of it)

Another scavenger hunt that I did was for my Dad for fathers' day (with the help of my sibs.)  Each of the clues was a riddle or puzzle of some sort (crossword, sudoku with letters, jumble, etc.) We also made a couple video clues and put them on his iPod.  The last clue lead to a little book that we made and illustrated with all the things we appreciate about him.  (He was going through a really difficult time and we wanted him to feel loved and appreciated.)

Anyways, something like that might work for her. 
1696  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Eeek! Save me! a.k.a. I made a boo boo and now I need your opinion. on: December 12, 2006 08:47:08 PM
So here's the deal.  I'm making my little bro (11) some jammy pants.  I bought a men's pattern, cuz I'm making some for other people too and decided that I could just alter it to fit a kid.  But I ended up making the legs too narrow Angry.  So here's my question, should I go with
Plan A: add side panels in the same fabric
Plan B: add side panels in a different fabric or
Plan C: I was hoping you could help me out with Plan C.

I basted on one panel of each fabric to help us out:

The pants:


Plan A with close up and a pic of me squeezed into them for comic effect to give you an idea of what they look like on a person. (And yes, I am wearing my husbands socks.)



Plan B:


1697  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I can't decide? Should I braid the scarf? on: December 12, 2006 03:15:24 PM
On my monitor the colors look fine together.  And I love the way the scarf looks braided.  I vote for braiding.

these koi pics are beautiful.  I looked through the flicker ones you linked to and they are all amazing.  The spider one gave my the heebie-jeebies, though!

Thanks, Deana!  Yeah, I think I'm in week 7 now.  I haven't put many of these up here because I don't get much response about them, but they're all there on my blog. 

Yup, I pretty much draw whatever I've got lying around.  I like it and it helps me see things better. 

Don't worry about your hand drawing skills.  They'll get there.  It's all about practice and being willing to try.  We all have our strengths and weaknesses.  Your fashion doodles put mine to shame any day!

As for health, http://www.pcrm.org has some good information.

Thanks, marleah, for all the info.  That site was really helpful.  And thanks to each of you who read my forever long posting and answered my questions.  Smiley  I really appreciate the open, sharing attitude in this thread (and on craftster as a whole)!
