What an amazing piece of work!  Just gorgeous, and a great story too.

I too love the idea of the hand-drawn squares.  I have saved all my daughters' little-girl dresses to make quilts for them when they are older.  I may have to think about adding some hand-drawn squares to that quilt too.

What a lucky sister you have!  The rooms looks fabulous.  And I love your bf's painting too!

This is a fabulous quilt!

Do you mind if I ask where you found the backing fabric?

An absolutely fabulous top!

I'm torn between using one of my thousands of silk scarves to make the top, or buying fabric and extending it to make a wrap sundress.

I work in the nursing home industry.  While I think your intent is admirable, the thought of adults wearing bibs makes me want to cry.  Can you work with the nursing home staff to change the way they offer services to eliminate the need for the bibs?  If no one ever makes noise, they'll certainly never change the way they do things.

The link below is a tutorial for a bag with bent knitting needle handles.

The loop is on your back when you put it on, on the bottom centre, yes. I'll really have to post a video.

Thanks!  Yours is an improvement on a design I've been working out in my mind.

The concept is absolutely fabulous.  I'm feeling a bit dense though.  The loop would be located near the bottom center of the backpack, on the side against your back?
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Need help with my dog cave on: January 23, 2008 12:24:25 PM
Help!  My dog cave needs more support.

For the cold weather months I made a foam and fabric "cave" for my dog.  The basic design is 3 large triangles and 1 teensy triangle which join together to form a pyramid.  The doorway is the area not covered by the teensy triangle.  I made triangle-shaped envelopes from fleece, then sewed them together to form the pyramid.  I sewed in a fifth piece of fabric for a floor, holding the sides into shape.  Then I put 1 1/2" thick foam rubber inside each side of the cave.

However, I am having a problem with the cave listing to one side.  Any ideas what I could safely use to provide additional support to hold the cave up? 

I'd thought of sewing a casing on the outside of the cave where each triangle meets, and putting a straightened wire coathanger inside the casing.  I'm not sure this is safe.

Your suggestions are appreciated.

I over-ordered my photo cards in 2006.  I used them to make ornaments this year.  I used a design from www.designsponge.blogspot.com 's DIY section (which I found linked in another craftster thread.)  They are called "modern paper ornaments".

I fussy-cut the cards so that I could have "Happy Holidays from the HollyP Family!" run down the outer edges of the ornaments.  Rather than hang them on the tree, I hung them from silver cord in a picture window.  I had many compliments on them.  And my kids love seeing their mini-photos hidden on the inside of the ornaments.

I love the idea of the origami boxes.  I have some patterns, and will have to dig them out when I take the cards down next week.
