81  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: how do you make mushrooms appetizing? on: May 05, 2010 04:09:32 PM
I'm with MissDisney and thelastKodama on this one-- mushrooms love to be fried. ESPECIALLY the big'uns.
Other than that, I treat my shrooms a little like I treat my tofu, and often pair the two. When my fiance is sick, I make him a broth by steeping dried mushrooms in boiling water, because he loves the flavour but not the texture. I eat the reconstituted bits with noodles and basil, myself.

Seems awfully sad that this thread has over two hundred views, and one comment. Sad
Thought I'd share some love.

This is a simple project, but a very pretty one. I love the second one, with the wee little cameo. It's understated, but pretty. The particular lace you've used for the top one is everywhere I look, and the pattern always reminds me of a trillium.
I'd love to see these paired with an outfit.

Top of the mornin' to ya!
I think, perhaps, his super detailed felt tommy gun is what makes this POP. That, and the green pinstripes. Custom print, or did you actually manage to find fabric that delightful?
His wee little hat must have been terribly fussy. He looks great!

... how do his little button eyes work?

Nice needlework, Batman!

You did a heck of a lot better than I would'a, and I think you should be proud. I'm sure the caped crusader would approve, anyway. He looks wonderful next to DWduck, as well.

These are so amazingly fab-tabulous, and I love them.
The fiance has been bothering me to let him dedicate a room in our apartment to gamer chic, and these make me want to let 'im have the bathroom.
Seriously, though. I want to make shower curtains to match your soap.
86  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ethnic inspired performance frock advice, input, tips, pattern etc. on: April 25, 2010 08:42:38 AM
You could go about this any number of ways, but here's my $0.02.

When I look at this fabric, the FIRST thing that comes to mind is a high-waisted, knee-length or calf-length skirt... the kind that swishes when you spin. You could wear it with a peasant-top or cap-sleeved blouse (linen would be fabulous!) and pull off a rather elegantly ethnic look, without being bothered by your neck strap.
Mind you, skirts are usually sewn on the bias, for the sake of volume. This fabric isn't nessicarily prohibitive of that, but keep in mind you'll have to match the pattern where those fat lines would meet at the seams-- think "V" shapes.

If a skirt doesn't do it for you, I have some cautionary advice. The sheer size of the pattern is going to make fitted dress tops a little fussy to match up.
Avoid halter-style dresses. I find they're very flattering on pear-shaped women, but your instrument is going to tug it all out of shape, and you don't want to look like you're about to fall out the sides of your top on stage.

... in other news, you could consider going with a traditional ethnic pattern, not just something ethnic inspired. What about this?

OOOOH AUGH, I've gone and inspired myself, now. To the sewing room, with me!
