1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Best rotary cutter and cutting mat to buy? on: July 20, 2011 11:26:46 AM
I think my cutter is from Fiskars, works really good, and just a plain green cutting mat. If you look at the automatic cutters, don't buy the Simplicity cutter, I have one. I can't return it because it took me so long to try it. I hate the thing. the blades it came with are so dull they barely cut. It's also supposed to go through up to 6 layers of fabric,I have a hard time getting it through 2. I wish I had the money for the Accuquilt cutter
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Rant: Your response when people see you quilting and say stupid things to you. on: July 20, 2011 11:19:34 AM
I don't get to many snarky or nasty comments. A former DM (district manager) at a store I used to work, bear in mind this was an older gentleman, said that he thought I could fix anything with anything, at the time I was doing an improvised repair to the back strap of a fellow employees bra.
Mostly I get looks of shock that I actually sew, my mother in law asked me a few months ago about something I was sewing at a dinner we have every month for the girl cousins, and one of my cousins who is probably late 50's early 60's looked at me with a shocked look and said you sew? It was hard not to laugh.
Anyway, fortunently the lady at Hobby Lobby isn't to bad when I have to have fabric cut, however it would be nice if she could say more then "How much of this do you need?". The only other real fabric store here has a really great selection, it's been in the same place for 50+ years, and some of the ladies look like they've been there that long. I've been shopping there since I was 15 and the looks I get from the cutters has changed muched in the last 16 years. I know I don't look my age. But I don't need someone the same age as my grandmother giving me looks like I can't possibly know what I'm doing, and the tone to match

I'm on the mailing list for free patterns from wiresculpture.com, they sent out a good tutorial for these a few months back, I'd post it but unfortunenly I'm on the wrong pc and cant get to my e-mail. I've been wanting to try it for ages, they look exactly like an ear cuff that I got at a ren faire about 15 years ago

hmmm, my first idea would have been the fake water that they have in the floral section of craft and hobby stores, don't know how it would look with resin already in the bowl though

Scream, cry, play some Everquest 2, then figure out how to work with other stuff =) I think the sign of a true crafter is to be able to work with almost anything
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Craft rooms outside ie sheds??? on: July 20, 2011 09:36:39 AM
I've thought of the same thing, some of my crafts are messy to the point that I'm getting ready to put a counter up in my garage. I can get wax and soap out of carpet, it's plaster that worries me. I haven't started pouring plaster yet because as clumsy as I am I'm afraid to pour it over carpet. Our summers in North Carolina get really hot to, I think the heat index just for today is around 102, and I wouldn't want to keep candle wax out in that. Don't get me started about bugs, a spider climbed out from under a rack when I was working in a clothing store and they heard me scream on the other side of the store

ok, I should probably know this but does anyone have any ideas about putting a hole in a shell for jewelry with out breaking the shell? I have a box full of shells that I would love to make necklaces and pendants but haven't got a clue how to do it!
