Hey everybody, i've been kinda quite since having issues with my computer, only had patience enough to correspond with partner. Sorry 'bout that. All of the dolls are so cute, I want all of them!!!!
6in1 i love the red hair and green dress, how did you do the pigtails?
You all are so creative, I really dig this swap thing. I just wished my computer hadn't conked out on me, I could have used all the advise.

Well i received a lovely package from Mamaphunk, just what i needed to cheer me up after my Dodgers loss on monday.
She is absolutely precious

I LOve HEr. She is smaller then the 150%, not sure what size exactly, but i think the perfect size for a child to tote around under one arm. And it just seems to make her even more charming
Check out the fasionistas little puffy sleeve detail with the most tiniest trim ever

so freeken cute!!!!

But thats not all, look at how the stylish lady arrived

She was bearing good smelling bath treats. It's so funny because i was just checkin Lush out on amazon. How Crazy. And the stuff smells scrumpdilly - oucious!!!!

And what you ask is in her cute messenger bag

Everything she needs of course, girl after my own heart. James (bf) thought she must be on the run with the serious heat she was packin.

Thank you so much Mamaphunk for making my first swap so amazing. I'm really happy you like your package too, i was a little anxious being my first swap and all.

2  Question and suggestions for Not Straight binding in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by jessie_jane on: October 01, 2008 11:17:08 PM
Hello all.
I'm piecing together my second quilt, basically pieced hexegons with tumbling box flowers. Anyways, I'm nearing the end and thinking about the binding. I was first thinking cutting the edges straight. Now i'm wondering if i can leave it as is and bind the jagged edge. This is what they kinda looks like; 2 sides _/-\_/-\_/-\_/-\_, and other 2 sides  /\/\/\/\/\/\/\.

So questions. If i leave as is,  is the binding technique the same. And will the binding lay flat around all the curves?
Thanks for your help. Also open to suggestions. 

You guys are very funny. It was rather late when i was sewing the last pieces on, and thought i would get the question out of my head before going to sleep. I'm still a little sleepy, but was so happy to see replies I wanted to post a pic for you guys. I don't have my camera right now so i took a pic with the cell. 

sorry so small i couldn't get the image to post right so i had to post link.

I am planning to cut binding fabric on the bias. When i was planning on doing straight edges, I was going to do a thicker binding 1 1/2" to 2", but i think if its all wonky edge it should be thinner. What do you think?

I'm not even sure if this is a specific style of quilt. I bought a couple template stamps from stamps by kate, at the long beach quilt show, and came up with this. It's going to be a lap quilt for my grandma, i got this great I love grandma flannel fabric for the back, which is good so she'll remember i made it for her, maybe. But anyways i like the idea of fallowing the edge as is, I think it will give a lot of visual interest. I'm not scared to try, i just need a little direction, or suggestions. You all are so nice thank you.

3  Re: first post looken for help (wanted to ad pics) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jessie_jane on: July 24, 2008 09:34:55 AM
Finished my purse. It's not perfect. but its nice and roomy, can fit a big project my needles, a change of clothes, bento, and all the stuff i need for my weekend train trip to san diego.YAY

Close up of the pleats

Interior has like three compartments with the center being zippered for notebook and project books

and the knitting needle pockets

This was a lot of fun, re purposing items can be very challenging at times, but the end result is so satisfying, don't ya think?
Anyways comments and sugg. are appreciated as i want to make another for a friend, but this time i'm gonna draw up a pattern to fallow

I just finished tiling a 38" round table. I'm scared to start grouting, not sure i have enough grout. I'm pretty new to mosaic, so i was looken around for some tips, and doin math. By my calculations, and formulas i found on the web, my table is about 7 sq. ft.. And from what i've been reading you either need a pound or a cup of grout per sq. ft.? I'm confused please help. I have 4 pounds, do i need more?
