1821  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Would you like this fabric for your baby's quilt? on: October 27, 2006 02:33:15 PM
I love it!  It looks great.  The red and white polka dots are fantastic for a baby quilt.  Newborns love high contrast.
1822  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Fill an Australian in...Your Christmas baking traditions! on: October 26, 2006 10:04:44 PM
I definitely want to try sugar cookies...and eggnog, although the name sort of puts me off Tongue

Yeah, sugar cookies are great.  It's not Christmas for my Dad unless we have frosted sugar cookies with silver dragees. 

Careful with the eggnog though.  Some people love it and some people hate it.  I think it's super gross.  Like really, really, ridiculously thick milk with spices in it. Lips sealed
1823  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: Pumpkins! Please share your Jack O Lanterns on: October 26, 2006 07:15:16 PM
Last year I spent Halloween with my family and we went a little pumpkin-carving-crazy.  Here's the results:

The little one with all the stickers was done by my little baby nephew. Grin

Here's my husbands creation.  He really liked that the pumpkin looked moldy.

Some more:

My brother's (age 11) creation:

and finally this little one.  (It says "beware!" the "e!" is around the side)
1824  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Another portrait, but I wanna cry. on: October 26, 2006 05:44:04 PM
Your portrait looks good.  And you have received some good advise on this thread.  I just have a couple things to add. 

1. How big is this drawing?  It looks a bit cramped.  Try getting a big sketch pad, like 18" x 24" (or bigger) to give yourself some room. 

2.  I second the recommendations to do some quick sketches (they're called gestures and they are good for understanding the movement and pose of the body) and also doing some anatomical drawings.  They will really help you understand the structure, skin over muscle over bone.

3.  Try drawing yourself with your hair pulled back into a bun or ponytail.  The hair looks great, but it will help you improve the portrait if you can see your face and bone structure more clearly.

Keep up the good work and don't be afraid to take chances.  I look forward to seeing more of your work!  Smiley

depends on how much time you want to put into it.  I am always impressed when people put as much effort into the back of a project as the front, so I vote for embroidery on the back, too.  But it will still be great if you choose to do plain velvet.

I'm think of making pj pants for most of the guys on my christmas list this year.  hats and fingerless gloves are good if it gets cold where you are (my family is all in So Cal Tongue).

If you want to do something on the sexy side you can check out this thread:

otherwise I'm stumped.  Boys are tough to craft for. Tongue

An ATC that someone sells instead of trades.  Smiley
Basically, its a 3.5" by 2.5" piece of Art.  That's all.

oh.  Thanks!

I love that you are using non-babyish prints!  I also love that you are using red instead of pink and pastels.  Personally I'm not really crazy about the big rose patterned fabric but I think it's going to look great just the same.
