4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Flip Off! Earrings on: June 01, 2007 09:20:41 PM
For those days when you want to tell someone to F off...lol
  They have "Flip" written on the top, and "Off" on the bottom...

They are the flip tops for medications that we use during births at work but I thought they'd make cute earrings too.

Action shot

I think they would make really cute plugs too, if I could figure out how to make them.

Smiley Let me know what you think!

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / First Try at Wire/Glass Jewelery on: April 06, 2007 10:26:02 AM
Hello everyone,

I made some jewelery recently for myself and had lots of comments on it at my clinic. Including people wanting to buy it. (I was shocked, but a bit excited)

So, here are a couple of my creations...I'm looking for any and all feedback from people with any level of experience. What you like, or don't like, etc etc.

[edit: remove pricing info! Sorry!!!! Sad ]

Okay, on to the photos.

My Rain Necklace...and earrings.

The blue glass ring, closeup.

The red wrapped ring...


I did a few more, necklace, pendent, bracelet of various things..but the pics didnt turn out so hot.

Anyway, thanks in advance for your help! Smiley

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / HELP! Montgomery Ward UHT J 1947 on: April 03, 2007 11:03:38 PM
Hello everyone!

So I'm in TX right now doing an apprenticeship, and I borrowed a sewing machine from a woman at the clinic. She doesn't know how to sew with it, but it was in her house.

ANYWAY, it's a Montgomery Ward, looks oldish and I can't figure out 2 things....

1) how to get the bloody presser foot down
2) how to thread it through the tension thinger. (which I can't find)

It's model number is UHT J 1947.

Anyone with any helpful advice, it would be REALLY REALLY appreciated! Smiley

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Fall Orchard Wedding on: March 30, 2007 09:20:15 PM
Hello lovely crafters....

Okay I'm getting married in Sept, we've been together for 6 yrs, and we decided to run with our apple theme for a fall wedding.

Here's what we've got so far
-The invites are the watercolour apple prints from www.masha.com
-we're getting married in a local orchard
-Using http://www.creativebag.com/products/131b.gif to hold a picnic dinner for each couple/family. We're adding a green leaf tag with names.

the bag will hold a thermos of apple carrot almond soup, something main, dried apple chips, and a spiced apple chai loaf/cake thing. It sounds like a ton of apple (which it is) but it all tastes REALLY different.

Anyway, I'm trying to think of something cute to write on the thermoses, about warming our hearts by attending, or something like that?Huh Help! haha They are just plain $1 stainless steel thermoses.

My bouquet is fall harvest flowers and things local to the area...

It's just a vows/picnic reception sort of thing, not very fancy...but any ideas would be REALLY appreciated.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Midwife's Apron- Green/Brown on: March 21, 2007 09:04:44 PM

Woop woop! Here's my new apron for my midwifery placement...we've had a slew of precip. labours/births so this will hopefully keep things at hand.
 Space for pens, my translator, gloves, lube, paper, all that jazz.

My first apron, and I hand stitched it up in just a few minutes, but I really like it.

Total cost $2, plus TONS of extra fabric haha. Maybe I'll make some more?

Thanks for any input/tips/comments in advance. I like it for a first try though.

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Labour Clock on: February 14, 2007 12:25:17 AM
Hi All....

Well I made this clock, as I'm just generally getting excited about my midwifery apprenticeship. (I hope this counts as a houseware!!)

We need to have clocks in our labour room, and I TOTALLY understand the need for those standard clocks with large numbers so everyone's on the same page and details are recorded correctly...

I just think this would be nicer for a labouring mum to look at.

It's a woman labouring with her doula/midwife/support, and the bottom says "In her own time".

It's just on the table drying, perhaps I will replace the last pic with an "action pic" when it's up.


10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Balloon-girl Remake. on: February 14, 2007 12:11:59 AM
Hey craftsters!

So My friend's and I had these matching tshirts when we were growing up...We all wore them together by accident that day and were very pleased.

Anyway, we are still really good friends and I made this for the little one with the curly hair (now in her 20's)!

Just thought I'd post and share... it was my first time making something like this.

Sewed layers together and stitched it up to fit around some foam core.
