I really like how the pattern "sits" in this dress... big patterns are tough, but this looks great. I especially like the fan on the front side that the tie cuts through.

This will be way cuter than anything else anybody else has and you will get a bunch of orders, if I know American sorority chicks as well as I think I do, at least Southern ones.  Wink

ooooh I love love LOVE saris... yours are particularly fab. I've never seen anything this complex come out of one- v. creative.

Awesome- very Paco Rabanne... more duct tape... more more more.

But I'm biased, I make things out of contractor bags. Grin

I love love love making stuff out of saris- this is a particularly lovely one! The tiered hem looks fantastic!

I didn't see it mentioned, and it may be a moot point now, but they make soluble stabilizer, so if the leather will stand up to a little water (not suede or REALLY fine- or if you want to have a little weathering look in the seams) you can use that. It doesn't really leave a residue (wet toilet paper) and it won't need all the "coaxing" out of stitches.

It's just a generally awesome product- depending on your local stores you can find it with embroidery supplies or you can order it from places like Sew True in NYC... a friend of mine makes fiber art with it...

Actually, that description was more helpful than any of the website info...  Cheesy

Well, at least I know the local bunnies like them, there were several munching around the tree when I went out this morning. If bunnies can eat them, then I guess I can too!
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Surprise! I have figs in my yard! Now what? on: July 28, 2008 03:40:30 PM
Hello! I have recently moved into a new rental house in middle Alabama and noticed a SMELL in the yard... investigation led to a very productive fig tree on the back side of the house. I will be climbing up into it tomorrow to get the ripe fruit before it falls and makes an even bigger buggy mess, but I was wondering how to tell 1) if they are edible ( I looked online and nothing really satisfies) Tongue, and 2) what are some tasty things to do with small, peachy colored, organic as far as I know figs? It looks as if I may have hundred on my hands (and in my hair) before the end of the week!

9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: breakfast ideas?? on: July 16, 2008 06:17:43 AM
I am not crazy about breakfast food, and recently when I was on a higher protein eating plan, I came up with this a bastardized (lazier) version of some Rachel Ray thing caught in a doctor's office...

Heat some PAM over medium heat in a good size non-stick skillet (10 inch works pretty well). Once hot, pour in either beaten egg (one will do) or enough EggBeaters to coat bottom of pan to about a quarter inch (I was using the just whites version and it was still tasty). Sprinkle INTO the cooking egg a little grated cheese of choice, herbs, salt, salt, pepper, even cooked meat or deli ham... whatever you want. No need to stir.

Before the egg cooks entirely, flop a whole grain tortilla (you'll like the nuttiness... it actually makes the dish more filling) onto the top of the egg mess, so it sticks. The desired cook level is when you can gently push the tortilla around and everything slides with it. If the tortilla slides by itself, you're not done yet.

Spray a little PAM onto the tortilla and then, and this is the tricky part, flip the whole thing over- my dog came to love playing breakfast roulette as to whether I was awake enough to master the flapjack flip- and let the tortilla crisp a little. Slide off onto a plate and you can eat it like a burrito or with knife and fork.

The whole thing takes less than five minutes and the protein carried my grown self well into the morning and I burn through cereals and toast within an hour. You can serve a little fruit or whatever else with it, but it is savory, and filling and delicious, and that "egg" texture that your children may be balking at (she inferred from personal experience) is a non-issue because it is spread so thin. Its especially yummy if you can get the cheese to toast.

And clean up is EXTREMELY easy...

And there's always grits...

The longer front also can be found and tinkered with from a rococo style pattern... the boning placement is pretty similar, and you would be re-styling the bottom to get the curves in anyway, so you could lengthen it beyond the natural waist where rococo usually stops. Really the whole thing could come from that pattern, just don't make the panniers...

Very fun site!
