1  UNITED STATES / Missouri / Chilicraft is back! on: August 26, 2007 08:55:50 AM
   The second annual Chilicraft will be October 6, 2007, again at Brittany Woods Middle School in University City.
   I know that's only a month away, but we all work well under pressure, right?!
  It'll run from 11 am to either 3 or 4...more on that later. We have a chili cookoff in the cafeteria, and all crafters will get a nice big space in the gym. We had a good turnout last year, and expect even better this year!
  Booth fee is a wee $35, and I'd like that by September...no calendar in front of me....19th.
  If you're interested, email me at calicoon@yahoo.com.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Free/Cheap lawn edging ideas? on: February 25, 2007 09:14:09 AM
I am hoping to reclaim the worthless strip of grass between my walk and the chain link fence. I envision it overflowing with sunflowers and hollyhocks and some sort of vine.
  However, I need some ideas for free or inexpensive (preferably recycled) lawn edgng!
  Here is a pic of the Area That Shall be Flowers:

The big patch is my garden; I'm thinking about the area under the bird feeder along the right side of the picture.
I hope that works!
 Keep in mind, this was taken in December, which is why it looks so muddy and sad.
3  Illinois / Illinois: South / Chilicraft is taking applications! on: February 18, 2007 07:19:55 PM
Hello, my crafters across the river!
  I'm organizing a craft fair/chili cookoff to benefit the PTO at the school where I teach.
  It'll be March 24th, from 9 am to 2 pm. Booth space includes chairs and possibly tables, if the district has them.
   I'm trying to get as many hip crafters as possible, so if you're available, or want to split a space with a pal, let me know!
  My email is calicoon@yahoo.com.
4  UNITED STATES / Missouri / March craft fair in STL on: January 27, 2007 07:14:39 AM
Hi guys,
   I'm running a benefit craft fair for my school's PTO. It's March 24th, from 9 to 2. There will also be a chili cookoff going on, so you won't go hungry. It'll be at Brittany Woods Middle School, by Olive and 170. This is the same school rap superstar Nelly and Murphy Lee went to, in case that matters.
   If you're interested, pm me. I will have the application done this weekend.
  I know school craft fairs get a bad/tacky reputation, which is why I put myself in charge. No cinderblock snowmen or Partylites.
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / What I can do! on: November 23, 2006 05:00:37 PM
These are from last year and before. An old neighbor commissioned me to make baby quilts for her babysitter's babies. Both girls got star quilts, which used some of the same fabrics. The blue and yellow is for the boy, so I did something a little different for him.

This is the back of the star quilt. Don't mind my bad hair day.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / $9.00 compost bin on: March 12, 2006 07:27:26 AM
       I've been longing for a fancy compost bin like the one I left at an old apartment. My dear neighbors and I had bought it together, but when I moved in with my then-boyfriend, I decided it wasn't worth the filth and effort to take it with me.
  Because I'm pretty frugal with money (usually), I resisted buying a $75 chi-chi composter. Sure, they're spiffy, but man, $75?Huh
   So, yesterday, in a fit of yard work, I went to Dollar General, bought a big black plastic round trash barrel/lid, and took it home for "surgery".
  I drilled holes in the bottom for drainage, and sawed a roughly 9" high flap at the bottom to scoop out finished compost. After setting it on some rocks to keep it an inch or so off the ground, my dream was realized.
   Yay for compost!
7  UNITED STATES / Missouri / Craft fair in Knoxville! on: February 05, 2006 09:18:34 AM
I found this on another board, but if you're like me, you don't read each and every board.

It's far enough off that I can sew enough, and also far enough away that I can procrastinate and freak out the week before!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting with human hair? on: December 20, 2005 10:45:53 AM
I know this sounds gross, but I was wondering if anyone has ever tried using human hair as yarn? It seems like it would work. I found a website of a Dutch woman who has made all sorts of...things...out of hair, but couldn't find instructions.
   I've seen people use dog hair as yarn, so why not human hair?
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / my "new" serger-any suggestions? on: November 27, 2005 05:42:15 PM
Well, Thanksgiving with the hubby's family was not nearly as bad as I feared. His aunt took me on a tour of theri house, and in a basement closet, I spied a dusty serger. "Oh, a serger? How do you like it? Is it worth the trouble?" i asked. SHE GAVE IT TO ME, saying, "Oh, I haven't used it in years"
   So, while I am TOTALLY PSYCHED about not shelling out $300 for a new serger, I also am nervous to start using it.
   It's a Singer 14-U64A, from 1985. Does anyone have one? What's the care and feeding of my Thanksgiving gift?
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / What color is your kitchen? on: November 05, 2005 04:35:39 PM
I make potholders. Lots and lots of potholders. I'm wondering, though, what are the most common colors in kitchens? And would my potholders match my customers' kitchens? Lemme know!
  I'll start-my kitchen is the color of orange and yellow marigolds, but in a good way. It was that way when we bought the house this summer. It's very cheerful and happy, and my cobalt blue tea kettle harmonizes well with the orange/yellow explosion.
