That's awesome.  You did a great job, and I love that when you thought of representing Ottawa you thought of the cats...

Great job, and quite frankly I think next time there's a fire they should rebuild using your recipe.

What a great idea to make a unique bishop.  I love the snowman over the backstiching.

Those are really nice bishops. 
Did you pleat by hand or with a pleater?  (I often have trouble getting the seams though the machine.)

Great job.  You did a wonderful job.   
I'm so excited to see some smocking on here.  What issue were the patterns from?

This just reminded me of all the pleating i need to get done so I can do some smocking...

I don't have a serger but I'm pretty sure your second method would work. 
I typically do nothing with my seam allowances and just pray for the best.  With material that really frays I typically zigzag it either before sewing the seam (separately), or after sewing the seam (both parts together), or if I'm using shear fabric I use french seams.

You did a wonderful job. 
4517  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Postsecret Swap Round 3 GALLERY!! on: March 01, 2008 08:11:22 AM
To the sender who still kisses posters, I haven't done it in awhile but i definitely used to so don't feel ashamed.  It can be a lot of fun.   Cheesy

And to the person who can't spell, don't worry you are not alone, and a little funny story about it.  After my brain injury they did a tonne of psych testing to see how much damage there was and the first thing they told my parents was that I couldn't spell anything worried that it was a major area of damage, but nope my parents just laughed and told the kind doctors not to worry because i never could spell.  Let's just say Santa often brought me and my sister dictionaries...

I just have to say I absolutely love the bug card... (if only I had a reason to keep those big pests away  Wink)

And to the scan tron one, i agree after 2 finals in a row with it I saw spots for a few hours afterwards, it wasn't fun.  Luckily I didn't have to use it much after that.

Those are great.  I love hte big buttons.  Thanks for the pattern, I think these will be added to my ever expanding list of things to make...
4520  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Post Secret Swap Round 4 [Discussion & Planning] on: February 28, 2008 10:19:51 AM
I'm not sure if I'll participate in the next round, but I participated in round 2 and have been an active lurker in rounds 1 and 3 so I figured I'd give my 2 cents worth.  

Any answer may be left blank if you're not comfortable answering it here
Would you prefer there were comments in the gallery: YES  I like the comments, sometimes they are what makes the swap for me.  Although I think it would be smart to remind people that some secrets will not necessarily get comments (remember the secret is anonymous, but those commenting on it don't get the same option).  Also it would be good to remind people that craftster is supposed to be a supportive community and I'm sure that applies here (this isn't really a problem but some of the secrets/comments about craftster this round I thought infringed on the supportive aspect of craftster alittle).  
How many cards would you like to send: I think it would be nice to offer a bit of latitude on this.  Maybe offer a few options when people sign up, like you can send 5, 10, or 15.  The reason I say this is that i know in round 2 20 was too many for me (leading to some lame secrets), but others still had plenty more to share, so offering some option would let people participate as much as they feel compelled to do.  This also would get rid of some of the concern over the uber large gallery (ie all the ideas of limiting participation).    
When would you like signups to begin: whenever...
How long should crafting be: long enough to give some latitude, short enough to keep it going.  One thing to consider might be slightly stagered sendouts so the gallery doesn't explode for 2 days then drip along at the end.  I know this wouldn't solve the problem, but it might help.  It also might allow comments to be better dispersed.

Sorry for the novel...
