I'll be adding some etched glass ornaments and scrabble tiles once I can take some decent pics.  Smiley  (and removing the craft books since there isn't much interest.)

put the books up on bookmooch.com!


oh, i have been looking for a bedside organizer that can be tucked between mattress and boxspring that hangs down like a pocket for a book and stuff like that. my bedside table is already full of lotions and stuff so this sort of thing would be great. I could make it myself, but my sewing machine is on the fritz. anyone know how to make something like this that doesn't look like the country-quilt stuff that you would find in stores? doesn't really fit my style:/

Before I got to the end and clicked the link I was thinking, isn't there something just like that in the amy butler in stitches book... which I have and haven't made anything out of...
I could make you one, if I either had fabric in my stash that would work for you, or you sent it to me (I'm not allowed to buy any fabric for the rest of the year or until I get a job and my first paycheck, whichever happens first).

Zelda.Suicide - I think there is a pattern in the Amy Butler book but for some reason I think that one goes all the way across to the other side of the bed...I could just be remembering it wrong though...

I think you are right about it going across the whole bed... but I think it may have an option to do it only on one side... I will have to get it out and see now.
The link she posted mentions an In Stitches sewalong... so I assume the one posted on that link is from the book... Huh  (there's no shruggy shoulder smiley)

hey zelda, what does your stash look like fabric wise? I don't want to rob your of your precious stash. Cheesy if you can give me some examples of patterns you have I would be interested.
I went on a yarn diet for an entire year, so I understand what you are going through...of course that's why i started spinning....:/


OH i am also looking for shawl pins... but now I am just being greedy.

I've spent down to 3 pts ... off to look at who had the crazy colored polymer buttons.  I'm thinking those would look real cute on the hats & scarves I knitted from the yarn I spun using penquino's funky batts

Found them!  MoonFairy - can the non-buttons be made into buttons withough breaking them??

I think that may be very difficult, but I can make you some new buttons if you want me to. Just tell me wich style, size and colors you prefer  Smiley

I am also interested in shawl pin.  I think you can make them with wire or something or beads.  If anyone make/post them, I will claim them.  Smiley

moonfairy, those look gorgeous! it is so hard to get that kind of quality look out of polymer clay and it often just screams "sculpey" but those look so classy!!! great job.


--

as far as shawl pins i am looking for a really minimalist one that would look nice with sari silk yarn. I think i may just use a walnut cable-needle i have for now, cuz i think it would look pretty smart on the cowl i just finished.

I have successfully knit myself 4 things in the past month. I am a machine!!

The pendants look great in both pictures moonfairy.  With the mother of pearl they remind me of little mystical Faerie mirrors  Smiley

Have a happy birthday hotty_blond2000  Grin


I just sent so I have some points to spend now.

Anyone interested in stenciled tank tops? I just passed a store that was selling many multi-colored tanks (thin straps) for a good price. If anyone's interested, I can go see what colors and sizes are available. They like to change their stock often so the earlier the interest/claims the better so I can buy some....

Avian I'd love a stencilled tank, I adore Mimiw's little bird on a wire stencilled onesie, It would be great if I could have a stencilled tank like it but perhaps with the wire still at that angel but near the base of the top Smiley
