Oh, and here is the replacement monster skittlebub made for Master Seven after his one fell out of my handbag on the way home.

I am super jealous of the machine too!  I am sewing on a Brother that I got at goodwill for $20.  I can't be too greedy though; I did just get a new in the box Singer Dressform in my size for $70 off Craigslist.  I almost didn't buy it, so my boyfriend said he would split the cost with me!  I may or may not have sneaked away from the lab for an hour to come home and put it together last night... Grin
What a great deal! I'm excited for you! I want a dressform even though I don't make clothes(though not having one is probably why I don't). I figure if I have a dressform I would be more apt to make some as the drape method appeals to me. I am thinking eventually I will make a duct tape one.

Alisha!!!! how exciting! I have had my Brother embroidery/sewing machine for three years and I am still learning...I use it to sew but thanks to certain unnamed people here (cough: waggonswest), I am venturing more into the machine embroidery!
It is exciting! So much that I almost wish I didn't know about it because now I've got that dreaded wait. I am already going through that because my phone broke last Sunday and I have been waiting for my new one to arrive. But it is coming tomorrow, so that is good, but waiting for something else just kills. And lucky you for having an embroidery machine!!!

Snow FALLS, right?  Grin  (With a bunch of crafters here, you know we have to be creative about the themes, right?! lol)

Sorry about the whole embroidery thing Always....  I got my machine back today after a couple hours working with the ladies at the store... I am about to go see if it will finally stitch out a trike on my latest batch of patches.  It is too much fun to not play with.

I am planning my next quilt with it!. 

I love the little in-the-hoop monsters!  I've got the pattern for the gingerbread boys but I'm not makin' 'em until Always says its time for WINTER.  (Why is it that we don't make gingerbread cookies in the summer or even the FALL?  Maybe I'll have to make that my next project....  but would it count, being a winter cookie and all?)

Silvermoon, what does your rainbow button say on it?  I have a few misc buttons for a J. Crew long-ways messenger bag I want to embellish with embroidery, buttons, patches, etc. and I'm always looking for new ones that say cool stuff Tongue

The rainbow one says "Wow. Sarcasm. That's original."

I got it (and most of the buttons there) in a Whedonverse swap.


I have a pattern seeking query. I have a bolero scarf pinned on Pinterest (here) and it links to someone selling them on Etsy - for $80. I'd like to crochet myself one (or five) but I'm not quite sure how I'd go about it. At first I thought it was one long tube, with slits to poke arms through, but the scarf/neck bit appears to be flat, and then goes back into a tube.

Any thoughts?

By the look of it it's 2 large rectangles. The left shoulder the back overlaps the front & on the right the front overlaps the back. The arms are sewn (the seam) to the length required, and the wrists are drawstring - That's my take on it any way. If it doesn't make sense I can probably sketch it & scan for you

That doesn't make sense to me, but I was thinking maybe it's just a regular shrug, with a really long body part? In which case I'd make a very long and wide scarf, and sew the arm seams together? I think I will try making a charcoal one first, before I break out my precious rainbow yarn.

Feel free anyone to weigh in with other ideas... today I'm not working on anything but this jolly wall. If I had been involved in anything other than holding wood during cutting/measuring/screwing into wall, I'd be counting it as a project. It's certainly been disruptive enough. But DP is doing most of it, so I'm sure it doesn't count. (I don't think he trusts me with his power tools!)

SilverMoon - I posted something similar earlier this year...  granted I'm not really happy with it, I wish I'd done it differently and I may make another one that I like better...  here are my suggestions if you want to crochet it instead of knit it (the one on your pinterest is knit).

Using double crochet (not single...  WAY to heavy - especially depending on what size hook you're using) make a REALLY long scarf.  Try it on periodically to see if its long enough for you to go from wrist to wrist and wrap around your shoulders.  It needs to be wide enough to be folded and seamed around your arms.  so for me...  I'd probably make mine at least a foot wide if not more (but I'm a fatty Wink).  When you get it made just fold it in half on the ends and seam it up as far up your arm as you want to go, ta-da!   

When I made mine I didn't want it to wrap around me again.  It just goes from wrist to wrist across my back.  I may go back and make one that's much looser and longer so it can wrap around me again.  Good luck and I hope this helps!
