3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / I was flaked on in a swap, then my angel flaked, and now my moderator? on: October 31, 2009 07:18:36 AM
This is kind of a strange situation and I am not sure who to address this to, except maybe a complaint box in the sky.  I was in the 100 Things About Me swap in August/September.  My partner flaked, no communication after I had sent her package and all.  Then the organizer said she would find an angel.  She did, then the angel flaked, no communication or anything.  So, I have messaged the organizer again and again all this past month and a half.  I finally checked on her last active status and she hasn't been active since a week after she said she found me an angel.  Needless to say, I am packageless and confused.  I have angeled for about 3 packages before and while I understand angels are a gift, I just wanted someone to know what happened.  If it can be rectified, that would be great.  If not, I suppose I understand.  Just wanted someone to know.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Is anyone up for another "I am addicted to the Office" swap? on: September 16, 2009 11:36:43 AM
So I am binging on the newly released season five of the Office and am wondering if anyone else would like to do another Office swap.  I haven't been in previous ones, but think I would need to break down...
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt board on: January 07, 2009 12:47:05 PM

I got this idea from my best friend.  I took an old canvas and hot glued felt over the top.  My hubby then helped me cut out felt pieces, and put them in a plastic zip container (saved from a pillowcase set I bought).  The kids loved them and I can do booster packs in the future.
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doll bed on: January 07, 2009 12:44:30 PM

Here is a doll bed I made for my niece.  I took an unfinished wood tray and wood glued wooden balls to the bottom.  I then painted the bed and sewed up some bedding for it.  She loved it and her new ragdoll now lives there.
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / why my seam ripper has paid its dues on: April 12, 2008 07:17:36 AM
So, it started because I wanted to make a t-shirt quilt for my husband.  It was my first quilt ever and thought it would be a great use for the sentimental t-shirts from our dating life that we don't wear anymore.  So I cut all the squares and assembled them with the batting to a flat queen sheet.  I also had this idea to put on the backside this banner he had gotten from camp (some kids had made it for him).  I sewed it into the quilt, and packed it up and wrapped it for his Christmas present.  He absolutely loved it, as in his favorite thing I ever made for him. When we are alone, he notices that the banner on the backside was decorated with some sort of medium that seemed to be rubbing off.  He was too nervous to use it much because he thought putting it in the wash would make the roaming paint-like medium to wander onto the rest of the quilt.  He asked me to remove it so it would stay nice. 
Because he loved it so much, I got out the seam ripper and went carefully to work.  I removed the banner on the back, leaving of course some quilt seams that needed to be re-stitched.  Because it took me hours upon hours to remove it carefully, I decided to save it for another day.  I put the quilt away. 
Fast forward a year and some, after convincing my husband that he can use the quilt carefully because for the most part it is done, I decide I should make good on my promise and get out the project again.  Keep in mind that I am now pregnant and my mind doesn't think things through all the way- a side effect sex ed never told you about.  I start to sew down the back of the quilt, connecting the seams, thinking I am sewing in a straight line. (I am not great at that).  Almost all the way done, I realize that this is a t-shirt quilt with t-squares, and that if I am not following the grid of squares on the front, it is going to look horrible.  Sure enough, I flip it around and I didn't hit the grid, So OUT COMES THE SEAM RIPPER AGAIN.  And I am ready for my hormonal pregnant breakdown, and ready to scream.  My husband comes home and tries to console me, but he and I both know that I have got to get this thing done.  So two weeks later, I get my nesting urge again and start to sew. Unfortunately, my sewing machine keeps getting clogged, the bobbins keep emptying, but I am pissed, and going to finish this.  So after much time has passed (2 Christmases in fact) and a project that should have taken an hour to finish, I triumphed.  And my OCD husband is finally happy.
8  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Does anyone have any good vegetarian African recipes, especially Ethiopian? on: April 07, 2008 08:27:23 AM
My husband is a strict vegetarian and I am a meat eater.  Life is funny like that sometimes.  Anyway, I have been really loving experimenting with ethnic food, and one of the cuisines we have eaten out, but not attempted at home is African food.  We have tried a few different Ethiopian recipes, and enjoy those.  Does anyone have any recipes for great African food that you personally have attempted?  Thanks so much.
