I think they are called "illuminated letters." But, since I'm not a historian or an artist, I'm not 100% sure...

They are very cool, though!

April is coming up fast (can you believe it??) and I just updated the information for the Habitat for Humanity auction.

And, I've already received the first donated item! Whoo-hoo! I'll be posting pics as soon as it is the "official" month!

I'm torn on what to make...
1) Decorate a denim jacket I have. Originally, I was going to embroider it, but I haven't done embroidery in ages and it probably isn't a good idea to use the jacket as a "refresher." So, I might attempt to make some fabric flowers and stitch them on with some funky ribbons and stuff appliqued on...maybe...
2) Make a lamp out of a small appliance...as soon as I hit a thrift store to get one...
3) Re-do a piece of furniture in some way...again, as soon as I hit a thrift store...

I'll just have to see what time and finances allow...

Oooh! The charm idea is neat and simple! You could put a horse on the knight, and a cross on the bishop, and a castle on the, well, the castle (rook, maybe?). And the king and queen could each get a different crown. The pawns could be left plain...

This is a better idea than I had in mind. Some of the pieces I was thinking of might have looked a bit phallic when crocheted  Wink

Hi Taz!

Now that spring has finally arrived (although spring-like weather is a bit intermittent at the moment), I will be wearing my shirt with pride!

And, I love the pics of Rosebud! I never realized what a serious expression she has...serious about crafts, I guess!

Thanks so much for swapping, and I'll post a pic of my shirt as soon as it arrives! I can't wait!

And Stifflersmom: I knew your avatar looked familiar!  Wink

Maybe I'll try a practice swatch by crocheting over the second color (even though some crocheters say that this is a sin  Wink ). I wonder how that would felt up? I'll have to try it and see...

And thanks for the pattern link...it is downloaded and printed! And saved...and forwarded to work so I can share it with someone...  Cheesy

If you do make chess pieces, I'd love to see them! And if I make chess pieces, I'll be sure to post them!
7616  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: wee executive jacket (warning: photo essay) on: March 28, 2007 03:19:43 PM
Another adorable project! And, another fabulous "photo shoot!" My favorite shot is the one of the back view (standing on the bench...). Can you just give her a big hug and a kiss for being so cute? I'd drive to your house and do it myself, but it's a bit far...plus, you'd probably think I was a psycho...  Grin

The whole outfit is great, right down to the sneaks!!

You know, it makes me want to have a kid just so I can make cute little outfits... Smiley

This is so neat! How much of a pain was it to keep changing colors? Do you just crochet over the color not in use?

This is officially in my bookmark list and on my must do list...

And, I think you should try to crochet chess pieces! Little tubes with different tops...they don't have to exactly resemble actual pieces...

Or maybe I should try to crochet chess pieces...except I don't play chess...and I don't know who I could give it to who doesn't have dogs that would probably eat the pieces...but it would be fun to try it...

And, can you post the link to the pattern you used? Sometimes I have a hard time finding things on their site...
7618  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: White Honda Elite Scooter - Blank Canvas! on: March 28, 2007 03:03:16 PM
Oooh buglake!

I want your "old" Elite!!  Grin

Unfortunately, I don't have an extra $500 and you live to far away for me to come and get it...how long would it take to drive a scooter from CA to MA???  Wink

But, ever since I saw your post, I've been thinking about getting one for driving around and doing errands...I'll just have to find a local one...

and super good thing you have spring break just before easter! No taking lab books home to grade Frizz!!!

Oh, our spring break comes after Easter...now, do I have room in the attic to hide everything...that is the question!

I love the "No Fly Zone!" I was thinking along these lines (although I didn't think to use her actual logo!), but then my color printer died, so I changed plans.

I love looking at all of the different interpretations/representations of the theme!

But, I hate to break it to you all...I actually MUST clean my house in time for Easter! So, I have been eyeing certain areas and mentally gauging the time it will take...more than I have, I fear!

So, can anyone say, "Hide it in Rubbermaid totes?" Good thing Easter only comes once a year... Wink
