1  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Re: Terrorist attack on: July 07, 2005 04:42:48 PM
Love and prayers to all of you in Britain, and around the world, where you are being affected.
I am at Great Lakes Naval Station Illinois (north of Chicago) and getting on the base is near impossible, with full security checks and police patrols all around. Its very shocking, and very heartbreaking for those hurt, but its good to know that people have stepped into action. The best wishes to anyone directly affected by this tragedy, all the way around the world from me, my deepest condolences.
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: "If I look like that, I may as well slit my throat!" - said my stepmother! on: July 07, 2005 04:36:54 PM
I'm aware of this, but if you want to have someones art on your wall and are willing to pay for it, it might be worthwhile actually liking the persons artwork in the first place! It was really my Dad who a piece of his daughters work, to be proud of. He was paying for it. And I changed it more than once, it took about four goes! Me showing photos to them and them disagreeing and making me change it again. Which was incredibly frustrating.

I love all of your art, I'll say first.
Next time, I wouldn't send them pictures. If they were looking in a gallery for art, they couldnt say, I want this picture, but you need to fix something about it...next time (even though there probably won't be a next time) just deliver it and tell them how hard you worked on it and that it came from your heart, and your own creative inspiration, instead of giving them a chance to "correct" it.
Don't let it get you down, you are a great artist!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting needles on airplanes? on: June 30, 2005 04:37:20 PM
Security at Tampa International Airport as well as Baltimore Washington Airport are cool on knitting needles. At both places, I was randomly selected for the full-search, and didn't get a word.
Next week when I fly, I'll give you a heads up on O'Hare and Dulles.
Does it seem to anyone else that we should compile a list of airports that are cool on knitting needles? Especially overseas airports? (remember its just your departing airport that would have something to say, your destination isn't checking)

Same here. I recieved today, but no word if I'm allowed to post it or not, so same for my person, tell ms. Jas.ns if I can scan and post?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: making a pleated skirt on: June 27, 2005 07:21:38 PM
Assuming you know basic sewing stuff already, I'll try to explain:

Pleats are very easy! What I do to make a pleated skirt is take my waist measurement, and then go anywhere between 1.5 times that size to 2 times, or however much, depending on how many pleats you want. Cut out a piece of fabric that is a rectangle, one side is as long as you want the skirt (well, longer, since you'll need to hem) and the other side is as long as your waist measurement x 2 (or however much larger you want it)

You can make the pleats in many different ways. If you want it scrunchy, and not so pleated, just sew elastic around the top. You can fold the fabric like an accordian, make big pleats, or little pleats,  and make sure you have LOTS of pins, pin each pleat. Once you get down near your waist size, this is where I slip the skirt on and adjust the size of the folds to fit my body perfectly.
Then sew a basting stitch around the top to keep the pleats in place and attach a waistband or fastener as you see fit.

Also, try here for a good tutorial:

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Perverted pocket or using what's there? on: June 26, 2005 01:41:09 PM
I completely agree. I'm 16, too, and though it would be functional, I think we all know what teenagers are like, and it might come across as a little odd Wink

Congrats to her, though, that's amazing, I could never imagine going through that, much less having the strength to win. She is an amazing young woman, complete inspiration.

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Being Cheeky @ the WalMart Fabric Counter on: June 26, 2005 01:26:18 PM
yes, i was just about to post how annoying it is that I can't go through self checkout with my fabric. so not only do i have to run into cheeky fabric ladies, but also cheeky cashiers, instead of the much preffered and more expedient (to me) way of checking out yourself.

but what can you expect from the mass-produced heartland?
