241  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Spiral stitch necklaces - image heavy on: February 24, 2007 10:15:01 AM
I made three of these the last few days - they worked up so fast.  They are spiral stitched with seed beads, and hex cut beads.  The first has a silvery/translucent grey seed bead with grey/black hex beads, the other two were a darker grey seed, or a purply iris seed bead, both with an AB dark finish hex.  I only had one magnetic clasp, so the last two are just waiting until I buy more clasps.  Also, for the purply one, I made a couple of matching earrings, which I will attach to the hooks as soon as I can find them.



242  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Crafting while on vacation in Vermont on: January 26, 2007 01:07:16 PM
We're going for a family ski vacation in Killington, Vermont.  I don't downhill ski, and from what I can see, there is no cross country trails in that area on their sites (not that I have done CC in many many years).  That's OK - DH does, and they already know that my vacation will involve reading, crafting, and shopping (for craft stuff).

Can anyone give me a heads up on what is available in terms of book stores, bead stores, yarn stores, general crafts stores in that area - or anywhere on route from Toronto Canada, to Vermont?
243  UNITED STATES / Vermont / Vermont craft stores??? Possibly Quebec too? on: January 22, 2007 05:30:46 AM
We're going to Vermont from Toronto for a week in March and I was wondering if anyone can recommend any good craft stores/book stores/bead stores/yarn stores that I could check out as I don't ski and plan on using the week to read/craft/shop.

We may be going through Quebec and Lake Placid to get there - if I can persuade DH for a pit stop - anyone know the route and any interesting stores along the line?

To be specific, we are going to be in Killington.  Bear Run?  Something like that.
244  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Wrapped around my hearts on: January 16, 2007 01:50:09 PM
I'm getting pretty fast at this.  This one just took me a couple of hours, done with pink embroidery floss, pink matte seed beads, and pink czech fire polished rounds.  This time, I only wrapped half the necklace form.







What do you think?
245  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / New necklace - wrapped wire with floss on: January 16, 2007 08:13:00 AM
I love the blue beads in this necklace - Blue AB finish Miyuki drops - they look like they glow sometimes.

Anyways, I had a stiff wire form necklace, and have been wanting to do this for awhile.  I wrapped it in embroidary floss, like doing a skinny friendship bracelet, and did bead drops from it at intervals.  I love this.


246  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / New necklace - vines and branches on: January 14, 2007 10:15:17 PM
Not sure what to call this one - vines and icicles, vines and branches?

Essentially a netted necklace done with matte pink iridescent beads in a leaf pattern fringe, with 3mm and 4mm FP crystals thrown here and there, interspersed with iridescent clear beads done in a branch fringe.


247  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Oil bottles, so simple on: January 14, 2007 09:52:04 PM
I have been looking for nice oil dispensing bottles for the last several months, that were cute, but did not cost an arm and a leg, and didn't hold a minute amount of oil/vinegar, whatever.  Anything to replace those ugly plastic jugs - and it had to be metal or glass, since plastic gets sticky and gross after awhile.

The only one I found that I liked was at an oil specialty shop and cost about $35 for ONE - so forget about it.

Then I realised that I could buy pouring spouts for bottles at my local kitchen store for a couple of bucks each or less.  Also, I have this collection of wine bottles and cat-shaped wine bottles that I have been collecting for the past several years.  The cats because they are in funky colours, and were cute - the others because of funky colours and I had plans involving cutting them, making mosaics, windchimes, etc.


The pouring spouts seemed to be a universal fit.  So I etched the names of the contents on the glass (some would not etch because of dimpling in the glass, so they get painted)






So now I have some funky oil bottles that were super cheap, and a reason not to toss out my cat bottle collection (the rest are going to be painted also for various uses).
248  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Anyone planning for next years holiday season yet? on: December 31, 2006 08:23:18 AM
I have some acrylic crystal like baubles from Pottery Barn I want to bead over to make hanging ornaments.

I have a sweater in Patons Divine yarn to finish for SIL - it was going to be for this Christmas, but I never finished it, so it will be for next.

I have a cabled sweater I would like to make for sister.

More beaded snowflake ornaments.  Perhaps a couple of beaded wreaths, candy cane or stars too.

I would like to do snowflake necklaces/chokers for my neices.

I would like to do a couple of coater/trivet sets for my two best friends - 70s mod pattern in browns and oranges for boy BF (his place is decorated retro mod batchelor pad), and japanese cherry blossom for girl BF.

More jellies/marmalade in mini-jars for co-workers and gift baskets.

Would like to do my filet Christmas tree door hanging for next year.

I would like to do scented trivets/pot holders - quilted fabric with pockets to hold muslin baggies of spices like anise, cinnamon, allspice, cloves.

I want to do an OCC double knit scarf for a friend.

I would love to do some unicorn filet placemats for another friend, or work on a uinicorn wall hanging/window hanging for her.

Otherwise, I would like to do painted/baked ceramic flower pots, or etched water glasses for her.

Also, I was thinking about making microfibre headwraps or terry cloth head wraps, packaging that with sea salt body scrubs, a nice lotion, hand scrub, bath salts, or bath bombs, and the loofah soaps (thanks to this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=122813.0) and doing a spa package.
249  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Another recycled card/wrap use (links to tutorials) on: December 18, 2006 05:26:41 AM
A few people were looking for recycled ornament ideas and I had posted some ideas (rolled paper bead garlands, folded card ornaments, etc).  Someone passed this site on to me that had some pretty ideas too - a Christmas card moravian star (which could be pierced and strung with LED lights inside to light up, or embossed, etc) and a 3D cut out snowflake:

250  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / I NEED A HOW-TO FOR THIS!!!!!!! on: December 09, 2006 10:27:48 PM
Has anyone seen the latest Knit1 magazine?  The Valentine 2007 Winter issue?  The theme is hearts, and they have 3-D beaded hearts decorating some of their pages.  They are adorable, and I want to make some for necklaces for a couple of friends - anyone have a tutorial or pattern?
