1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Need Opinions, Quilt-Giving Etiquette? on: March 14, 2010 12:16:44 AM
For my birthday, my Mother in Law sent me a huge pack of coordinating fat quarters. It was a very nice gift but the fabric choices were, lets just say, not my tastes. So I made a quilt top out of them, and she said she really liked how it turned out. So my question is; would it be rude or ungreatful to give the finished quilt to her as a gift? What do you guys think?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What are you making for the 4th of July? on: March 08, 2010 01:38:55 AM

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Dont know if this is allowed-Does anyone know how to do this stitch? on: September 17, 2009 01:40:00 AM
The Children's Place has an awesome poncho in a fantastic flower-y looking stitch, does anyone know how to do that stitch? I love it! Thanks for any help.

4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Opinions? Tinkerbell Outfit for My Daughter on: July 09, 2009 11:48:47 AM
Okay so to make a short story long  Roll Eyes we are going to the Peter Pan Treasure Hunt in Kensington Gardens in London this weekend and I thought it would be cute for my little girl to dress up. So I made this outfit but Im not sure about it. I want your guys' opinions, do you think its boring? I wanted it to be true to the character, but now Im afraid its kinda plain. Her hair will be done up in a bun with a side part and she'll be wearing black ballet flats, (because she wont let me paint them green! lol) Oh and Im going to put jingle bells on her somewhere so she makes the Tinkerbell sound too. What do you think?

5  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Where can I buy canning jars in or near Newmarket? on: June 30, 2009 08:21:17 AM

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / What kind of ruffler foot do I need? on: June 14, 2009 12:46:57 AM
I just learned that there was such a thing and now I've decided I cant live without it! But upon looking for one to buy I found that there's a choice between low shank and high shank. Anyone know which type I need? Also I have a Singer machine, does the foot need to be brand specific? Thank you for any help.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Anyone know if Joann's sells My Little Pony fabric? on: April 27, 2008 12:55:01 PM
I know this seems like a silly question but my little girls is having a My Little Pony themed birthday and asked me to make her a dress. (Yay! Cheesy) I thought Id ask on here and maybe someone would remember seeing some there or something. I only ask because the nearest Joann's is over an hour away so I hate to waste a trip down there...not that I wouldnt find something to buy, but thats another story!  Tongue
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Can I make a stop at the top of a zipper? on: April 17, 2008 02:02:23 PM
Ugh, apparently I'm running low on caffeine and just screwed up my zipper. It started out as a a zip for "Dress Plackets", much like this one-

See that little metal stopper at the top there? Yeah I cut it off. -Not really sure what the hell I thought was going to happen but let me reiterate the lack of caffeine.  Undecided So now I have it all sewed into the dress and naturally it is the prettiest zipper Ive ever done  Roll Eyes so I really dont want to take it out! Does anyone know if I can fashion a stop somehow? Thanks in advance for any help. Now Im off to make some coffee...
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First Project Post! New Purse (3 Pics) on: February 26, 2008 08:42:20 PM
I love the colors but Im not crazy about the actual purse because it stretches too much when loaded up with junk.  Sad  Im not sure if its the stitch I used or if its because I didnt know you are supposed to go through both the front and back loops. Oops.  Cheesy Oh well, here it is.

Laying Flat

On, but empty

On, with a few things in it

What do you guys think?
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / How do I "drop loop to be picked up later"? on: February 19, 2008 08:25:03 AM
Im trying my first non-scarf/hat crochet project, the Knot Ugly Shrug from Stitch and Bitch. (Yay! Cheesy) After the 11th row it says "drop loop to be picked up later", so I assume that means just take the loop off the hook and leave it, my question is do I cut the yarn, or should i have another skien?  Huh I really do hate patterns.
