Ashling: I am just curious, but what is wrong with the sleeves in the folkwear pattern?

They're way too small in the shoulder and underarm area.  I always have this problem, but since it has raglan sleeves with a dart at the neck, I'm not sure how to fix it.

Beautiful!  I have that folkwear pattern, but I haven't been able to alter the sleeves to fit right.

I'm still working out what I want to do.  Here are my ideas so far:

Father-in-law: New wallet (done!)
Mother-in-law and her two sisters: ceramic coasters (done!)
Sister-in-law: Breakfast at Tiffanys inspired sleep mask.  I haven't decided yet if I want to use blue and be authentic, or pink, her favorite color.
Grandma in CA: Tablecloth.  She hasn't been able to find one small enough for her 42" table
Grandma in IL: Apron

Grandpa is probably getting a book again.  My MIL suggested a smoking jacket, but with everything else I'm doing I don't think I'll have time.

I made ceramic scented oil warmers for all the women in the family last year.  Unfortunatly, one exploded in the kiln and I didn't have time to start over.  So I'm going to make one for the family friend who didn't get one.

I made wine charms for my father-in-law a few years ago, and they went over well.  I made them with pre-cut hoop earring wire and plastic beads I already owned.  The best part was the total cost was only $1.39 for the wire.

That's neat.  I made a bag out of my husbands BDU pants a couple years ago, but yours came out much better than mine.  Great job!

I was inspired by the 102 degree heat this week to start early on this.  I already made a shade for my balcony, but it only covered one side, the one parallel to my patio door.  So Friday I made a similar shade for the short side. (I only have 2 sides to cover, 3rd is a closet, and forth is the building)  It's a 44 inch square of beige fabric with grommets on top to put nails through, and two more grommets at the corners with ribbon tying it to the railing.  It's not that fantastic to look at, but it does it's job keeping the sun out.

Beautiful!  I have that same pattern, but I've been too nervous to start.  Is it as hard as it looks?

This is so cool!  I should make one of these for my trip to Chicago this fall.  I can't use my usual mini backpack with full size one, and I hate digging through my luggage for my wallet at the airport.  This seems like the solution!

That's a very lovely dress.  Those stands that blow chalk are awesome, I love them.  They make hemming so much easier.  I wish I could find mine.

Maybe we could to ways to reduce electrical usage?  Things like window coverings, blankets, anything that would keep a person warm (or cool depending on the weather) solar cookers, etc.?
