41  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: Accidentaly crotchless pants... aka Burda 8157 on: January 11, 2006 06:07:59 AM
They're sort of like bunny rabbit chaps!

The lack of a seam allowance on the pattern is probably part of the issue, that would end up costing you about an inch on each side.   That, and the pattern's "widest part of the hips" may not be located exactly where the widest part of your hips is - I have that problem a lot with pants, and it's why I've never tried to sew any, other than PJ shorts.

I think a simple "I'm glad you liked my brownies, but I'm really not interested in anything other than a purely professional relationship." is where you should start.  If he continues, then mention HR (and follow through, if necessary).  No need to use a cannon to kill a cockroach (what an appropriate metaphor for a sketchy guy, no?). 

He may just be enjoying making you uncomfortable.  So don't let him make you uncomfortable.  Take control of the situation and set the necessary boundaries, and he'll probably stop bothering you.

Dice!  Poker chips?  Other gambling-related items

A CD of songs with "luck" in the title or lyrics:
- "Lucky, Lucky Me"
- "Even the Losers (Get Lucky Sometimes)" - Tom Petty
- "I feel Lucky" - Mary Chapin Carpenter
- "The Lucky One" - Alison Krauss
- "lucky" - Melissa Etheridge

I'm sure there are others.

That is SHARP!   I am most impressed.  I like the color, too.

I've never done a swap on Craftster before, but I would definitely be interested in this one.
46  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Curio Coffee Table on: January 05, 2006 09:14:43 AM
There's a restaurant near me in Atlanta (Top Spice) that has glass-topped dining tables with similar compartments under the glass and they're filled with spices (cardamom pods and things like that). 

About how big are those compartments?  I have several very small antique prayer books and hymnals (like, fit in the palm of your hand size) and I've been thinking about creative ways of displaying them.

Oh, and when the Brits say biscuits, they don't mean American-style biscuits.   Their biscuits are more like cookies.   

Not that there's anything wrong with biscuits.   MMmmmmmm, buttermilk biscuits....

Or a thin layer of foam, with brown felt or something around the edges.

Yeah, chopsticks (you can buy really pretty ones if you have an asian market or Chinatown type area near you), dowels, bangle bracelets (try the Dollar Store)...I'm sure there are tons of others.  Check the crafty section of your local bookstore and look through the handbag books for inspiration. 
50  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Picture Hosting Support / Re: exceeds filesize limit *grr* no idea what to do- some kind person plse help! on: December 28, 2005 08:53:26 AM
There should be a resize option somewhere in your photo editing software that will allow you to change the size.  You could also try saving the picture in .jpg or .gif format - sometimes the picture comes from the camera in a format that takes up a lot of disk space.   

Oh, and when taking pictures, check to see if your camera has an option for changing picture quality - lower quality pictures will take up less space (and when viewing pictures on the web, the quality is not as important as it is when you're printing them).
