1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Memory Wire and Scrabble Tiles on: October 21, 2013 06:55:36 AM
Has anyone attempted to add a scrabble tile to a memory wire bracelet? I'm looking for some ideas on how to do it. I would prefer to have the wire go through it twice, but then it won't wrap on your wrist. Thoughts?

3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Dilly Green Beans on: August 06, 2012 05:52:11 AM
Yesterday a friend of ours let me pick some dill out of his garden. I made five jars of dilly green beans last night.

Here is the dill that I picked yesterday morning.

Five jars ready to be processed.

They are so very yummy.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Magnetic Purse Shell Covers on: April 20, 2012 10:53:05 AM
I've been working on making some covers for a magnetic purse. It took some practice, but I think I've got it down now. They are like a book cover that slips over a flat shell.

A friend gave me a bunch of upholstry samples, so I used some of those and some regular cotton fabric.

First up a Wild Things shell.

Breast Cancer Shell

Tan shell

Recycled skirt shell

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to Determine which size pattern to use. on: April 02, 2012 08:00:22 PM
I haven't sewn clothing in years. I bought a Simplicity skirt pattern. If I measure my waist, it says I should use a size 20. My hip measurements say to make a size 16. In reality I'm kind of between an 8 and a 10. Am I reading this completely wrong? How true to size are patterns these days.

Thanks Kris
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / St. Patricks Day Miche Shell Cover on: March 30, 2012 03:23:08 PM
Littlequak posted a link about a contest through Miche. After being in the Teesha Morore Inspired swap, I decided to make a shell cover. I just found out about the contest on Sunday. So for the past four days I have slaved over this purse cover. It's basicly like a book cover that slides over an exisiting magnetic purse shell.

It's not perfect, but it was fun to make. I learned a lot while making it. I'd love to make a breast cancer themed one.

I already have 80 some likes. Someone said they should hire me. There are a couple offers to buy it. My head is swelling.  Cheesy  

Here is the Facebook page with the contes if you're interested in checking it out or in voting.  Wink
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shirt Messanger Bag on: March 24, 2012 04:47:46 PM
A coworker had a torn work shirt and I offered to make his girl friend a bag with it. The shirt was made of polyester. It was terrible to sew! I would have liked it to have been a little narrower, but with the pockets I couldn't. Then the button on the bottom of the flap was not cooperating either. It turned out so so.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Too pouffy Prom dress on: February 23, 2012 08:28:36 PM
My daughter found a prom dress that she wants to buy from a friend. It has layer upon layer of tulle and is way pouffy. Do you think it would be possible to cut out a layer or two of the pouf and still look ok?
9  COOKING / Dessert / Cupcakes on: February 18, 2012 11:08:52 AM
I plan on making cupcakes for my son's high school graduation this spring. So I've been practicing. I created a cupcake pin board.

Today my daughter and I whipped up three different kinds. I haven't tried the cupcake as a whole, but the ganache and the frostings are wonderful. They were all made with doctored up cake mix recipes.

Lemon Raspberry Cream Cupcakes

Orange White Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate Strawberry Cream Cupcakes
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Coat Rack on: February 14, 2012 05:32:20 AM
My husband and I made this coat rack for a Duck's Unlimited banquet silent auction. The design was my idea and I made the tiles. He did the wood cuting and found the cool duck hooks. I hope it brings lots of money for the ducks. This was a new kind of project for me. Now I want to make one for my house.
