11  Look what my friend GAVE ME!!!! (Fiber Frenzy inside!) in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by TheDishclothQueen on: December 11, 2006 02:43:02 PM
I have a VERY nice old lady friend (who wouldn't be offended that i'm calling her an old lady  Cheesy), who asked me the other night if I'd like "some" of her fleeces.  She would give them to me.  Of course I said yes.  I was expecting a couple.  

I got them from her yesterday.  It FILLED my trunk and back seat:

It includes:  mohair, llama, cotton, flax, and buffalo!

She also gave me on "indefinate loan....and if I die, you can have it" this:

A freakin' drum carder!

That big box of fleece, btw, never made it out of the box after she received it in the mail.  The postmark?  '91.  

I'll post more pics as I actually go thru it all  Smiley

I received a fabulous cupcake pincushion from Mdsvc89 this weekend.  I hope to get a picture up later today, but I wanted to make sure I thanked her publicly!


Thanks again, I LOVE it!

OMG, did I ever receive today!  I received from Cheryl (zenochka), and I am in love!

Here's all the goodies!

A gorgeous wall-hanging (and yes, Cheryl, I know exactly where I'm going to put it!):

A wallet and makeup bag in my favorite color, followed by a picture of the wallet open:


A fleece scarf (that I am going to love wearing, if we ever get out of our 60 degree warm snap!)

An ornament (b/c you can never have too many tree ornaments!):

A nursing necklace, for the baby to play with when he/she is nursing (I was going to cut my belly out of the picture, but decided it was appropriate):

A journal, to keep track of all my crazy, hormonal ramblings:

And CANDY  Grin:

Have I not been spoiled?  And talk about swap anxiety on my end!  I'm sending tomorrow (late...sigh...I forgot that one of the items was going to take longer than I thought), and I'm so worried that I don't have enough or enough cool stuff included!

Thanks so much, Cheryl!

I'm really fond of the Ann Norling Spiral Rib hat: 

It's a multi-guage, multi-size pattern, so you can use whatever yarn you have on hand.  I'm esp. fond of the top decreases b/c they stay w/ the pattern.  The hat fits really well and looks pretty good as well.  Since it's multi-sized, you could use a smaller size (kid, maybe?) or just start the decreases sooner.

You see this sign:

And you don't see a sign for your local Elevator, you see a Nine-Patch.

And YKYACW you take a picture of this sign, just so you can show others who won't think you're off your rocker!

16  Re: how hard would it be to make this with not too much experience? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by TheDishclothQueen on: October 19, 2006 02:50:17 PM
Okay, I found this one:


It's not an exact match, BUT, the neckline is similar, and that would be the hardest part to draft yourself. 

Maybe someone else can find a better match than I.

The easiest way I can describe a raglan sleeve is to think of a baseball style shirt.  Like this:

Set in sleeves look like the sleeves on a regular tshirt.  The seam goes around your shoulder/arm joint.

Make sense?  Clear as mud?

Okay, I caved and bought the old black Singer.  Here it is:

I tried it quickly in the store, and it seems to sew.  From what I can gather from the internet, it seems to be a model 15, produced in either 52 or 53.

Here's my new baby!  (Okay, it's not new.  And I know I don't need another one.  But bear with me.)

It's a Kenmore 1410 and cost me $35 at a second hand shop.  I'm SO in love.  I've been in search of the perfect old machine all summer, and have bought several at rummage sales (usually between $5-$10).  Of course, there was always something wrong with them.  This one, though, was more than I usually spend, so I wanted to make sure it worked.  I asked, and they let me test it out in the store.  It works like a dream!  I'm more giddy than words can say.

Even my mom loves it.  She just got a new commerical grade Singer, and she's not happy with it at all.  She said she would trade me my Kenmore for her Singer in a heartbeat.  (I, of course, told her to dream on!)

Of course, he/she needs a name.  Suggestions?  Grin

Okay, it's a Kenmore 1410.  Here's an ebay picture of the actual machine:

I mainly just feel better knowing the model number.  (And from looking at the pictures in the manual and attachments and such on ebay, I'm going to try the metal bobbins with the holes all around).
