1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: dress idea for winter father/daughter dance? on: January 30, 2008 09:24:20 PM
How old is she?  If she's a little kid, a fluffy tulle skirt over a plain dress might be the way to go... kind of like a fairy dress.  If she's a bit older, you could try making or buying a simple dress and personalizing it with a sash, a sewn shawl, some beading, ribbon trim... etc.  Find out what it is that she likes about the higher-end dresses, and see what you can do to a simple dress.  Good luck!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Altering Scrubs? on: October 26, 2007 10:19:34 AM
Would it be possible to rip the side seams and insert a panel of stretch fabric on either side (up from the bottom hem to the hem of the sleeves).  That might make them more comfortable...
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Thinking ahead: Christmas gift for very old grandmother? on: October 21, 2007 09:00:16 PM
My gramma enjoys a little painted tray my sister and I made for her because it makes it easy for her to hold things on her lap (a dinner plate, a book, the remote control and a cup of coffee).  It's about 9 inches by 12 inches and has raised sides, so it's the perfect lap size.  We glued non-skid floor backing to the bottom so it doesn't slide off her lap.  Another idea might be a bag with lots of pockets so she can find everything easily, since her sight isn't good.

- a "secret invisible ink" kit?  Lemon juice, a paint brush, and some paper
- a magnifying glass
- washable ink for taking fingerprints
- a case notebook for writing down details of "crimes"
- a personalized "private eye" or spy identification card

Maybe you could set up a fake crime for them to solve with their kits.  My grandma used to do this for my sister and I.  She'd tell us that something had been stolen (the nail clippers, her favourite mug), and we'd question her, search for it, take fingerprints, come up with a suspect (usually her).  It was lots of fun!

Here's some pics of the lovely package hp_nerd sent me:

My bunny Libby and her brand new baby:

And the scrapbook:

Libby got a little rowdy and kept climbing on things she was warned not to! 

Her outfit for the Harry Potter release party

Libby meets Elliot and gets married

And then comes baby!  Wallington Amadeus Elliot was born

Thanks again hp_nerd!

I received today!  I'll hopefully post pics tomorrow.  My stuffie came home with a baby and now has a long-distance husband!  It was a busy summer apparently...

Abe and I have been having tons of fun. My sister has even joined in the fun and has been taking him when she goes cool places.  On Wednesday she took him to the RCMP museum and he bought a postcard for hp_nerd!  I'll post pics later today hopefully.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Muggles say the cutest things . . . on: July 15, 2007 10:01:33 PM
My boyfriend only knows two knitting words - variegated and boucle (though he insists on calling it babaganoush).  He doesn't know what they mean though, so every time I pull out some yarn he asks if it's variegated or babaganoush... Though he wins major points for a) buying me the Boye crochetmaster hook set for my birthday and b) waiting until I finish a row to ask me to do something or move over on the couch

I made this, and I didn't have problems with the bust, except that the whole thing was way too big, even though I got gauge perfectly and made the size for me... I ended up frogging it.
