1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: Costume: Regency Day Wear! (1811-1820) on: October 28, 2008 01:09:57 PM
Wow that is great. My preferred era is post-civil war. Daughter is in Les'Miserables so I looked into the clothing of the era as I get to help with the costumes and wow that is cool. The most fun is sewing in the traditional construction ways, I have made 2 1860ish costumes and just love getting 5 yards of fabric pleated to fit my waist!!

If they are in good shape and you can bear to part with them, You can check with your local Fire Department or maybe hospital They can hand them out to kids who need something to hug. My friend had a "donate" birthday party for her son, everyone brought stuffed animals to give to the firemen, then then pass them onto kids they meet who may need something to hug or distract them from the situation. Also you could ask your local shelter or humane society to give them to the puppies to play with?Huh?

hope I helped

I just remembered those new fancy gift bags on that expensive recycle site. Try to figure out how to fuse them and make gift bags

My vote is use them for something cool. My sister-in-law uses old pages for her artwork, she is a real life artist in Minpls and she paints right on them they look cool. I have 6 old hard cover Hymnals from hubs church growing up Do I cut those??

Hi, I had a Satin Angora named Cinder"ella" she was beautiful, and sweet but very shy. She was Smoke colored. What i would do if I had to trim nails was wrap her in a towel with just her head sticking out then i would maneuver her until a foot stuck out and trim that foot, going around until all were trimmed. then I would put her away with a treat. I got her from a 4-H child at fair, I would try to do things in steps with her. I would leave her in her cage to brush her a little at a time. Every spring I would shave her, to get rid of her mats on her butt. My mom owns a dog grooming shop and I would bring her in on a morning where no other dogs were there. nice and quiet. We would only do the worst parts usually her butt. I also would trim her butt mats with scissors in layers until I reached a stage where I could brush it out or use my fingers and she could groom it out of her hair herself. A friend of mine who showed rabbits and whose children showed meat pens told me that one tablespoon of raw sunflower seeds would help with the sheen on the rabbits coat, thus making it easier to groom. You could invest in a grooming table which is a small table waist high with a rim around it but I always had the most luck with a bag of baby carrots in a quiet room, I used small scissors that fit on the palm of my hand and a small plastic bristled brush like you use on your hair. Rabbit hair is so much finer than even cashmere. that is why you need to blend it. Keep in mind rabbits are gentle souls and you will be fine.

enjoy your new friend!

For the bottles i hear Ya., because they do help define you use them as a decoration like a vase on your forehead ?  or slice them .but use a lid like the others on the ends of a dread. cool cool cool I wish sometimes I could do dreads Sad Just something my hair cant do. Oh well

7  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Knitted Amigurumi Along? on: April 18, 2008 12:40:57 PM
Hey, I'm in!
I've just been sucked into the world of amigurumi. I highly recomend Ana Paula Rimoli's
Amigurumi World. It's  crochet, I'm starting in that to learn the hows to translate into knitting my own creations!

I've got to hunt for more knit amigurumi patterns. I'e got some great black, freen, and blue angora that needs to be made into something cuddly.
