Whow, that's great. And that beautiful pattern on the fabric! AND that perfect accent fabric! You really did a good job.

If you'd like to hear a trick concering zippers: I always close the seam where the zipper has to go with a running stitch. Then I baste the zipper under that seam, making sure the opening of zipper and seam are right on top of each other. Then I just sew over left side and right side of the seam, pull out the running thread - voila, nearly invisible zipper.

That's really great. This owl has so many colors, but it does not look over-colored. Everything blends nicely, and the green-red/rose makes a wonderful contrast.

Oh, my, this is SO GREAT! Can't understand how I missed it the first time around... I'd totally rocked it. Aw, I'll rock it anyway!

Great idea! Now just go hang that thing - if it crashes on you, you can still tell your brother that this helps you blend in at the great zombie apocalypse... Cheesy

Hey MistressT, that's cool. I'm wondering too: 4 feet of snow? You expect that much regularly?

Steiconi: It's a good thing rain doesn't pile up like snow, cause 14 feet would be called a flood, wouldn't it? Wink

Whow, that's really great!

By looking at your pics of the tangled drill I thought immediately: you need a cap for the tip of the drill. Instead of just placing that cardboard disk at the end of your spool-to-be, how about using one of that cardboard tubes (part of) that's big enough to fit over the end? Close one end with that disk you already have and put it over there, open end first, so it covers anything between your end-of-spool and the body of the drill. No gaps for thread to get tangled into. And if it tangles on the cardboardtube, just brush it off.
Speaking of, you even could make some tiny little cardboardtubes just fitting your dowel. You fit them onto the dowel in the drill, spool your thread, get your regular spool, fit a wheel on one end, then match it to the drill and gently push the cardboardtube with the yarn onto the final spool, put a second wheel onto the open end - spool done, tool ready to go for more.

And for the toilet paper stand - you just need something HEAVY on its foot to keep it down. Or use the handle of a door to put your big-cored-yarn onto - they are not likely to give in so easily. Cheesy

If you're into lighting, get some small  battery powered LEDs and light them up! Maybe put a slogan on them: You light my heart?

Finish them off with glitter. Stick them to cards. Fill them with selfmade soap or make a candle from it. Fill them with glitter and little things, glue two together to make sort of a medallion.
