51  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Monster Bag! on: October 25, 2007 01:27:55 PM
I was inspired by this tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45906.0 But I didn't really follow it, I just winged it.  I did a few things differently, I omitted the clips and sewed the strap directly to the bag, added a zipper closure, and I made the teeth on the inside extend past the flap edge.  I'm very pleased with it.  The pictures are a bit darker than the bag actually is.

52  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Ceramic Christmas Coasters on: October 24, 2007 12:48:53 PM
I made these for my MIL and her two sisters.  They were really easy to do, I used a 28 oz can to cut them all the same size, drew on the flowers, fired, glazed and fired again.  It took about a month, mostly because I could only get to the shop that fires them on Saturday.  Sorry about the cruddy pictures, someday I'll get a real digital camera!

53  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help with Folkwear #139 Vietnamese Ao Dai on: September 09, 2007 10:12:29 AM
Has any one ever used this pattern?  I'm stuck at the fitting stage, I can't seem to get the sleeve/shoulders big enough to fit my arms through.  Any suggestions?
54  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Cheap AND Diabetic friendly recipes? on: June 27, 2007 01:36:07 PM
Ever since my husband was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, I've had trouble making food for both of us.  I have diabetic cookbooks that are filled with expensive recipes, and I have frugal cookbooks, which rely heavily on rice, pasta, or other starches.  Sadly there seems to be no Frugal Diabetic cookbook.

So, I'm looking for some good, relativly inexpensive, low-carb recipes.  We've been eating a lot of ground beef lately because it's the cheapest meat we can get.  He's happy with it, but I'm tired of eating the same 3 things all the time, and I don't want to have to cook seperate meals.  Does any one have any recipes or suggestions?
55  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / semi circles are my nemisis on: May 30, 2007 09:58:53 PM
I decided I wanted to make the half circle wrap skirt in Sew What! Skirts.  I did the calculations, and cut my fabric only to realize that once again I'd used the radius for a whole circle, and that the waist, which should have been about 45 inches, was actually 23.  I cut the waist again 3 inches down, tried it on and it looked like it would work.  Stitched the waistband on, and the bloody thing is still too small!  I'm afraid my ankle length skirt will end up a micro mini before I can get it to fit me!!
56  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Need help with a shade on: May 09, 2007 11:11:41 AM
During last summer's heat wave I made a shade for my balcony.  It was just something I threw together with leftover muslin, and I tied it down with string and safety pins.  This year it's just not cutting it, for the life of me I can't get the bloody thing to stay tied down and off the roof.  I probably need to weigh it down at the bottom, or possibly remake it with better fabric, which I'm not opposed to doing.  I'm not sure what I should use that would be in my budget.  I'm pretty broke right now, so anything I use will have to be very cheap or free. (The whole purpose for having a shade is to lower my power bill.)  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
