1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sugar and spice, everything nice.... on: January 02, 2009 11:12:16 PM

I don't normally do "cute", but my nieces needed Christmas presents.  My dog ate my first effort, so I made the Raggedy Ann in about 14 hours on Christmas Eve.  I have to say I'm rather pleased with her.  Thanks for looking. 

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt top on: March 30, 2008 01:55:19 PM
So, technically, this is only a partially completed project, but I'm thrilled.  I actually finished a quilt top.  It was randomly cut, but I practiced getting my seam allowances equal.  I'm going today to buy a backing for it.  I'm thinking gold, but am open to suggestions.  (My husband is lousy at giving creative advice.)

I'm also unsure how to quilt it.  Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!

Oops, this is the picture from before I got the sides sewed on.  It is symmetrical.  The sides are narrower than the center piece though due to a fabric shortage.  (I bought the fabric on ebay.)
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / A new cat deserves a new bed! on: February 27, 2008 08:57:11 PM
Hi all!

I adopted a new kitty on Sunday, and he promptly smooshed himself in my little Shanti girl's bed.  There wasn't really room for both of them.  So, I made them a bigger bed.  (Course now both are claiming it and neither wants to share.)

Just in case you're wondering, Jackson does have two eyes.  He's just got a bad conjunctivitis.

Thanks for looking.  Comments appreciated.

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Off grain fabric on: February 20, 2008 11:02:43 PM
So, I bought what I thought was inexpensive fabric but obviously was just cheap fabric.  The grain was really off.  I read that you're suppose to stretch it from salvage to salvage and fix it.   I couldn't.  Is there some other way to make it work?

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / French curves on: February 13, 2008 07:15:48 PM
Hey there,

I have a question about french curves.  I read that they come in handy when altering patterns, so I thought I'd get one.  Problem is, they come in different sizes.  How do I know what size I need?  Is it based on pattern size?  I use a 22 pattern.

Appreciate the help,

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Resizing patterns on: January 17, 2008 02:08:42 PM
I found a good website explaining how to resize a pattern, but what I'm wondering is it really as easy as it looks?  Are the results good?  I'm interested in buying some vintage patterns, but would need to resize them 2-3 sizes.  Thanks for the help.
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Poppet Pattern? on: December 19, 2007 05:10:36 PM
I've been looking at all the really great Poppets, and I want to make one too.  Can anyone direct me to the pattern?

Thanks much
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Sewing cabinet or table? on: November 29, 2007 02:48:50 PM
So, I just recently bought a Bernina machine, the quilter's edition, and I'm hoping to actually finish some quilts.  However, I don't have anything to set the machine up on.  I know that with quilting there's a lot of fabric hanging around.  Is a table a better investment than a cabinet?
