no, you aren't alone in the internet world - they're all too busy on thumped for anything else though.

Trimmings just moved across the keys, dude! no worries. however, being from foreign i have to whinge that dublin certainly leaves something to be desired in the charity shop department. not really their fault, but it sucks to find a shop full of clothes from penny's for twice what they cost new.  Tongue

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / not super concrete info, but... on: January 13, 2006 03:50:44 PM
rock on! wow, very on par with my own life dreams...
 that said, no i haven't done it yet but to get this thread moving and to brainstorm/communicate:
1)i have stayed with people who live in buses, and who toured in their mobile living spaces and it seems extra insulation is rarely used. i think the reason being it takes up too much space, and when in such a small space you are not going to need a big heater to keep toasty in the most damp and chill climates (excluding the "don't go out or you will die...really!" winters). 2)other than just RVs and busses I have seen pretty well down trucks with large loft extensions over the cab, and lots of fancy woodwork adjustments (think gypsy-style) 3)showers inside i have not seen...what about something you could rig up outside the bus?
 
a couple suggested links:

best of luck!!!

That's really awesome!
It does seem to make a big difference to the look of the quilt - sort of bubblier, less angular. Really excellent!

7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Just what I'm after!! on: November 18, 2004 07:44:41 AM
Thanks SarahFroggy! That's exactly what I was trying to describe - how it still looks like paper piecing, not applique, but it has a rounder,softer look to the angles.

now for the credit card hurdle...  damn.

Luckily with the "look inside" option I was atleast able to have a better look at the details. I wonder how they do that wacky stuff??

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Rounder looks with quilting? on: November 18, 2004 05:25:42 AM
I'm racking my brain as xmas grows nearer, trying to design something as simple as a pillowcase!! I've been cruisin the internerd looking for a photo of what I have in mind, but I cannot find anything to put up here to better illustrate what I'm after.

Perhaps it will suffice to ask: is there anyway anyone knows of to make rounder/slopping/less"goemetrical" edges to paper piecing desings?

Everything I can come up with has really sharp edges. I could applique pieces on, but is there another way?!?

The one piece of advice I have is don't get too ambitious with your pattern. I was the same in the beginning in that I was tempted by all these really fancy patterns b/c I didn't want my quilt to be boring. Then I discovered a secret. You can let the fabric do the work for you.

Pick up a book at your local library (or bookshop) about textile manipulations. There's lots of really simple (and not-so-simple) things you can to spruce up less-than-top-qual fabrics.

Economically, I'm usually relegated to the ranks of second-hand fabrics only. It can be great fun, but sometimes really frustrating to find complementarile designed fabrics Tongue

I have a book called "exploring textile arts" that has a lot of suggestions.

Best of luck!!!

I really like the print - though I don't know that all dudes could pull of floral! My partner certainly would be pushing the fashion boundaries - he's a very thin and kinda lanky guy (and cute as hell!) . I've offered to show him how to make those oversize trousers he likes so much (despite their impracitaclity!) but he just hasn't really shown interest...oh,welL!!
ps- was the tailored shirt hard to make?
