12  Weird nylon stuff in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by sarahdotcom on: December 06, 2004 01:21:53 AM
Ok, apparently this stuff is for knitting or crochet, and it looked so interesting when I saw it in the shop, but I wouldn't know where to start with it!  Does anyone have any ideas for what I could do with it?

I worked up my own version, but I couldn't have done it without your pattern as a starting point, Lothruin!

It's me, Sarahdotcom.  I'm glad it arrived so quickly!

I made a beaded bookmark for myself too, and I love it so much I can't concentrate on my book!  I just keep playing with my bookmark!  Thank you so much Bkrenning4 for the beads I used in a couple of them - they arrived just in time.  Can't wait to get my bookmarks either!  I won't get any reading done when the bookmarks are more interesting than the books....

Here's a photo of all of the beaded ones I did:

15  Any spinners out there? in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by sarahdotcom on: November 19, 2004 05:44:03 PM
I just bought a cheap spinning wheel on an auction site.  I got Anne Field's book out of the library to try and figure it out, but it's not helping much.  I can't figure out what's what!  Can anyone help me?

Here are some pics.

Here are the two pins I received, from veludo and bequitas.  Thank you! (they came together so I don't know who made which, but I like it better that way!)

I think I put that I like pink and green on my survey, and let me just say that I am so glad you didn't go with pink and green - I think I've overdosed on it lately!  Sorry it took me so long to post pics, I'm going through my final exams for my law degree right now so things are a bit hectic.

The pins I sent should have arrived by now I think - let me know, swappees, and I'll post pics if you can't!

Roll on round 2!

Yup, minimising negative impact is what it's about.  How much you do depends on what you feel comfortable with.  I've always thought that those who style themselves as *true* animal rights activists should just kill themselves as an example to us all! (ok, please do not take that one seriously...)

This is specially for Lothruin:

I've been looking for a chance to show them off! (plants are crafty, no?  maybe we should have a gardening section??)
Just out of the picture there's a lime tree, then lemon, in the lemon tree pot there's lettuce and rocket, then we have basil, spring onions, beetroot, chilis, broccoli (all just coming up from seeds now), a tomato plant, red and green capsicum, yellow capsicum, another chili plant, one radish plant (the rest are in the garden!), and hanging up there's jasmine (mmm, jasmine tea!)  Of course, there are loads more plants out in the garden.  We compost all our scraps and put them on the garden, and we don't use any chemical pesticides.  Of course, we don't grow anywhere near all of our own food, but we do our best.

I wasn't talking about deep ecology, but growing up in New Zealand I find myself very influenced by Maori ideas of deep respect for the land, and only being caretakers of it for future generations of humans and animals.  For example, if you want to cut down a tree (something that would normally last until after your death) you must first ask the permission of the god of forests, Tane.  While that isn't my driving force now (I take a more intellectual - and yes, more anthropocentric - approach) it is still very appealing.

Yes, the original point of the thread does seem to have been lost, but the original poster doesn't seem to mind, or I would never have jumped on this bandwagon!  We should probably give it a rest soon though, I have a feeling we're cluttering up the board a bit much (and getting a bit off-topic, although we do have a "crafting for good and not evil" board and I may just suggest a gardening board).

I'd just like to thank everyone for the intelligent, friendly discussion!

18  50s polka dot dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sarahdotcom on: September 23, 2004 03:52:03 AM
I found some black and white polka dot fabric at the Sally Army - 3 metres for $3 (less than $US2) and it just screamed for a dress to be made out of it.  I also had my law school leavers dinner last night and nothing to wear, so I got cracking.

Unfortunately it was an absolute rush job and there are so many things wrong with it (not least that I didn't bother to finish any of the seams!).  But to the casual observer, it looks ok, and I may go back and fix some more stuff now (or rather, after I finish school and have some time).  I've definitely got the zip thing sussed, anyway - for once the zip is perfect.

Anyway, here we go:

I'm the one in the polka dots, of course!

All up, what with the fabric, zip, tulle (on special at a fabric store that is closing down) and ribbon it probably cost me under $10.

The only thing is the tulle scratches something chronic!  It ends up really hurting.  I suppose I could wear stockings but I'm worried they would run.  Any ideas?

Yay!  I hope you liked it.  I'm glad it arrived safely.  The tin has had a rather dubious past (it belonged to a friend of mine) so I was a little worried about Customs and sniffer dogs...

The best part about doing this shrine was the elephant.  I think I've got a picture of how ugly and evil-looking it was before I started working on it!  I haven't got time right now but I'll dig it up.

Yay, photobucket's back up!  This is the shrine that Barbi (norsgoebel) sent me.  I love it!  She managed to fit in all of my interests, how cool is that?
