1  Florida / Florida: South / Re: Help! I'm new....is there anything going on in Miami? on: October 17, 2011 09:41:54 PM
Hi! I'm a crafter living in Miami too.  I've been here 4 years and I'm still trying to figure out if there is anything going on here.  Shocked  What's your crafting pleasure? I make quilts and other fabric-y home goods.

Hmm, I do most of my fabric shopping online or at Joann's ... but if you're looking for apparel fabric there are a bunch of shops in downtown Miami that sell it.  I've seen a bunch in and around the Miami-Dade Community College and Federal Court areas.  I do mostly quilting so I haven't visited the shops in quite a while but they may have some velour-esqe fabric.  Good luck!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Random Awesomeness in pillow form on: April 03, 2011 10:55:34 PM
I made this pillow for a friend. 

We were chatting one night when she dropped this little gem and I knew that it needed to be memorialized on a pillow. 

The center of the pillow is done in cross-stitch (designed by me), the middle is a white minkey, and the outside is a .... suggestive .... cotton print. 

Don't overlook the saucy tassels in the corner. 

 finished the back with a simple envelope closure. 

The finished size is 12"x12", but it's awesomeness is UNLIMITED!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Ecological formal wear on: May 27, 2008 04:01:31 PM
I'm chaperoning a dance where the theme is green and the kids are challenged to wear ecologically friendly formal wear. I feel like I should too ... but I'm having trouble getting the ball rolling as far as ideas. On top of that, I'm under a bit of a time cruch, the dance is June 14th and I'll be out of town the weekend before, so that leaves very little time to pull something fabulous and eco-friendly together.

Any ideas, helpful suggestions?

Great job on the monkey.

I made something similar for my nephew for Christmas, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=227330.msg2465042#msg2465042 an idea that I borrowed from another here on Craftster. Gotta love those anatomically correct toys Smiley
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: I hit a weight loss plateau...more dresses to keep me on track on: May 05, 2008 06:40:13 PM
I love love love the brown dress! Great job on all of them. The gathered dress looks really great on you already, it looks a little to intimidating for me to try yet  Smiley

Good luck with the rest of your weight loss, those plateaus can really be frustrating, but power on through.

When I read your headline, I mistook the exclamation point for an L and thought to myself 'how would you applique a bowl?' I clicked the link I scrolled through looking for the illusive bowl until I re-read the title. hahaha. Just thought I would share.

btw, cute outfit!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Jeans Jacket + Organza Embroidery on: April 27, 2008 05:42:29 AM
Two things:

(1) Love the jacket, looks great

(2) I drove up to Hollywood from SW Miami-Dade on a mission to find that fabric store. I had read stuff about it online and finally had the chance to go there. Turned into a wildly unsuccesful goose chase! When I couldn't find it I tried calling the phone numbers listed on his website but they were just random people's voicemail. So weird that the very next day I see this post!
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: baby winter blanket - hand quilted on: April 17, 2008 09:18:37 AM
Wow, I really like this. I did a hand quilted baby quilt but my quilting didn't look nearly as nice as yours. Great job!
10  COOKING / Dessert / Re: 50 Candies? on: April 14, 2008 04:00:26 PM
Florida is know for its citrus fruit, especially oranges, so I bring you

Candied Orange Peels

Orange peels
Granlulated sugar

1. Scrub the outside rinds thoroughly to remove any dirt. Put rind in cold water, bring to a boil and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and repeat this process two more times. Drain, rinse with cold water, and scrape away the pithy white part of the peel. Slice into strips.

2. For each cup of rind, prepare a sugar syrup of 1 cup of sugar to 1 cup of water. Put rind in syrup and cook slowly until syrup is completely absorbed - several hours. Stir occassionally and watch carefully near the end of the process.

3. Cool the peel and coat the strips with granulated sugar. Dry overnight on a rack. The sugared peel, when dry, may be dipped into melted semisweet chocolate.
