1621  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Small Steampunk Swap (Signups through 4/15, Sendouts 5/17) on: April 08, 2011 03:07:17 PM
Diamond Age was fantastic. One of my favorite steampunk books is China Miellville's The Scar, which involves a floating pirate city. Say it with me. Floating. Pirate. City. Eee! Love that book.

Has anyone read Katie McCallister's Steamed? I haven't yet, but one of my friends raves about it. It's apparently a steampunk romance novel.

I read it. Sex and Steampunk and Funny. And Pirates. Entertaining!
My to read list is getting longer and longer.....
The Clockwork Dark series is a good younger reader's steampunky series, first book is The Nine Pound Hammer. Scott Westerfield's Leviathan has been mentioned, it's good. Sequel just released, Behemoth, haven't read it. I'll add some more to the list later!
But heck, almost anything can be steampunk. Think of the Wizard of Oz series. The Tin Man is so an automaton. And what was the name of the mechanical character that had to be wound up with a key? And wouldn't an Old West/Steampunk crossover be awesome?
Yes, I'm so signing up. When I have a spare minute. Smiley

I still need to sign up....I'm in two other swaps right now, and usually that's my limit, but how can I miss this?

I love the sheer fabric. How about a skirt? Put a layer of solid complimentary fabric under it, and the sheer layer floating over it. Could be really pretty, my DD had a dress made that way. Of course, that may mean getting more fabric  Roll Eyes, but if it means you get to use and enjoy the other fabric you love, might be worth it?
No ideas on the knit fabric, but it is very pretty!
I think I'm going to make a scarf out of my autumn leafy fabric. I have an old sweater I saved to remove the beading from, I could maybe use the sleeves as a lining material? Hmm....

Thanks for the suggestions. I need to either start using stuff or give it away! I do have some scraps of leather that would look nice with the autumn leaves..hmm.
1628  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: 2011 DeStash-Along on: April 04, 2011 04:23:36 PM

The autumn leaves and the clouds are about 38 inches by 45, the black with the orange stars is about 43 by 81.
If they were scraps, I'd use them for teesha moore style stuff, but I'd like to think of something else I could do with these odd sizes of fabric. Any ideas?

I know what you mean. I just sent off a huge box of supplies, and I can't miss it. But I didn't amass all this stuff overnight. It's overwhelming, it's discouraging. But, baby steps. It will get done! Everytime I work on this, I get a bit more familiar with what I have, and it gets a teensey bit more organized. I just made a few things strictly from my stash for a swap. Can't post it, it's due to be mailed soon. And I've signed up for a couple of frugal/recycled swaps. That'll let me have the fun of crafting with the bonus of using up stash.
I do have a picture I need to post later of some fabric I've been hoarding. I'm wanting to do this months theme-if I can just think of a project!

Oooh, gibbous! That's on my ever lengthening list of projects. That's a lot of lace! Nice.
And, is it weird that I'm jealous of all the yarny goodness when I can't crochet or knit?  Smiley Whenever I'm in a yarn store, I just want to pet it, and ooh and ah. Well, weaving is also on my long list of stuff to do.
All the packages are so yummy!
