Oooh, I like the mix. I know its totally off topic, but whats the background pic? It's familiar but I cant place it. Its driving me nuts!

Thats perfect, I like the balance of it all. And well placed. I cant ever set anything on my head so prettily.

Outstanding! Just my type of morbid. Do they slide to meet at the bottom, or are they secured at equal points?
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Block suggestions for Boho father's winter quilt? on: October 18, 2010 12:50:58 PM
You guys were right, the snowball block is perfect. Im sure i'll use that a ton, i'm not very fond of the tons and tons of tiny triangles that so many blocks consist of. The center seems like a perfect place for applique, and the triangle edges for decorative stitching. I was going to go with this wishing ring 2 in the very very beginning, maybe i'll put a couple in there as well.

I definitely like the look of the snails trail one, I want one of those for myself, the fluid repetition that all the individual blocks make up seems like it would be extremely soothing to look at. Thanks again, i'm very excited, thinking of posting it when i'm done and I havent even started. Now if only I could find that iron.....
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Block suggestions for Boho father's winter quilt? on: October 16, 2010 08:12:46 AM
So I wanted to put together a quilt for my father this Solstice/xmas/winter holiday, and was trying to find a block to go with. I've been collecting old silk shirts, and wanted it to mainly showcase the fabric (light and cool colours, mainly) and a bit of crazy stitching, but didnt want to go with just rows of squares. I know the less 'rows of squares' it is, the more complicated, and I did want to finish by mid december.  Thats up to me, of course, much more than the block complexity, I suppose I mean i'm not going for a ton of seams, so the fabric can show itself off.

He's 52, lives in St. Pete, Florida, bohemian/hippie, proud of his Irish (and to a slightly lesser extent, British) heritage, reads a ton, and talks/converses, oddly enough, those are his main things. Im trying to give you a bit of an idea of him, since he doesnt really have hobbies/career to describe him; he's artsy, paints houses and pictures, fimo clay as well. Ive quilted before. Im sure he'd dig anything, so I suppose its more to satisfy me. Suggestions?

I dont like tube/halter dresses on myself either, and ive had a huge tshirt for years, trying to find a flattering dress....this is splendid, although now I want to get that shirt you have...im such a copycat, but thats soooooooo fantastically lovely, reallly. The greatest t.reconstruction ive EVER seen, and im practically obsessed with those things.
7  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Steampunk Christmas Ornament Swap (Sign ups 10/1-10/15, Sendouts 12/6) on: October 16, 2010 07:51:28 AM
I juuuuust ran across this a bit too late, but love the idea. Havent yet honed my steampunk style, some things I love and others not so much, so I look forward to keeping an eye on this and seeing how the pieces form to fit certain people. Exciting!
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: what is this quilting block called? on: October 12, 2010 03:07:55 PM
Ooh, you could try x.mas/solstice/channukah/kwanzaa/yule ornaments! I took a quilting class once and we did some of those at the end, just sew two together, and use little buttons/sequins at the four corners of the circle, I think....
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Voodoo Chic ~IMG HEAVY~ on: September 23, 2010 10:24:27 AM
Holy cow, im in love! I was going to ask the same question, so confused, I know you said it took four months, but the stitches are so so tiny and perfect, I cant believe my eyes...Im going to have to go start wisting, specifically because of this!
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: "love you forever" embroidered note (college ruled!) on: September 23, 2010 10:13:08 AM
So whats up with the embroidered notes and letters? I havent heard of them yet. Im obsessed with old fashioned letters, I think ive found a new addiction, but i havent a clue whats going on.
