Absolutely gorgeous project!
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: New to sewing...question on finishing stitches :) on: May 09, 2011 11:05:13 AM
Good to know! I'm teaching myself to sew, and I figured I should backstitch at the beginning and end, but when I did some applique, I pulled the thread through and tied. I had no idea if this was the right thing to do, but it seemed good. I'm glad to know I had the right instinct. Reading this has boosted my confidence.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New Necklace Design with Shell Beads on: April 22, 2011 08:05:56 PM
I made this necklace to go with a dress I just made. I had originally envisioned a longer, big round chunky plastic necklace. But I didn't have those materials. Instead, I found these interesting white octagonal beads that I joined with faceted green beads and silver spacers.

Although it's not how I planned, I like how it turned out. The faceted beads add some fun sparkle, and the shell beads are so intriguing.

I used a toggle clasp.

One easy thing is to wrap potatoes in foil and stick in the outer edges of the fire until they're cooked through. Make a quick chili or heat up one you've brought over the fire, and enjoy over your baked potatoes.

Or I like making curry lentils and rice. Take a baggy with your seasonings. Cook your rice and lentils together and add your spices. I camp with no fridge and only a couple of pots and pans, and this works great.

I love doing this with leftover mashed potatoes, too. But I usually fry them up in bacon grease. Even less healthy for you, but oh-so-delicious.

These are awesome! I really love how they turned out. I'll need these for when I have kids.

Cute! I would never have thought of doing a ring with them.
