11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my hemp wedding dress on: October 23, 2005 08:55:10 PM
so its been well over a year since the wedding.... but i couldn't find where we had the pictures online.  and of course... my favorite shot doesn't even have me up and fully posing LOL  but its when i felt most comfortable
i made it from hemp silk.  it looked like shantung  Grin
and here's some horrid shots of it without the slip and before i had that exquisite corset made by O'rion at One Wilde Knight... ignore the messy apartment shots.... i was trying to finish it before i moved from seattle to green bay

and just for fun, here's the barbie cake my sister had made for my bridal shower.... she even dreaded barbie's hair to match mine  Grin

12  COOKING / Dessert / homemade dog and cat treats? on: October 01, 2005 11:07:50 AM
couldn't decide if i should post this here or in the pet section.... but we just got back from the farmers market. we finally had a chance to check out the booth with home made dog biscuts and were impressed.  then i remembered all the ones i used to make in highschool and how good they smelled.  and figuring that we need to start doing major obidience training with our 6 month old pup.... i should fish around for an array of favorites Smiley  anyone got a secret family milk bone recipe?  libby ain't picky... she doesn't even turn her nose at the limp pickles from mcdonalds burgers haha. 
13  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / mother in laws rock on: September 13, 2005 06:53:44 PM
rob spent his day off visiting his parents.  his mom is a seamtress in a dress shop that also houses a shop that sells local folks' crafts and stuff.  so while perusing the multiple green bay packer afghans and stuff, his mom points out this spinning wheel for sale.  she asks "would francie ever be interested in spinning?"  he said he started laughing.  turns out, the wheel seller also sells her natural roving.  so his mama sent him home with a ball of about a lb of creamy white wool Smiley  yayyyyy and then top it off, his dad sent us home with the family's long forgotten yamaha scooter LOLOL  rob already promised i could make the basket my 'knitting basket'.  i took the 'lil razzberry' for her maiden voyage down the alley.  heaven.... i'm in heaven..... with about 60 yards already spun  Roll Eyes  kool aid dyeing... here i come....
14  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / knittyspin on: September 08, 2005 12:28:09 PM
curious if anyone else spotted knitty's nod in the spinners direction in their fall issue.  i was hoping they'd offer more in the way of a project guide but perhaps in future issues.... for now, i was happy to read yet another testimonial to this oddly addictive craft.  ooooooooooo which reminds me.... my first hank of yarn should be dry today Smiley  must go touch
15  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / carding paddles? on: August 31, 2005 06:24:43 PM
okay, so i haven't even recieved my first drop spindle and fiber from ebay yet... and i've already purchased a pound of raw wool..... yeah.... i kinda go head first into new crafts.  i promised dh i wouldn't purchase a wheel until i garauntee i love spinning.  SO  since i have this raw wool coming..... i read up on how to process it.  and i was shocked to learn how expensive those hand held carding paddles cost!!!!!  wtf?  minimum of 40 bucks for what looks just like the brush we used on the dogs and cats?Huh my apologies to anyone who makes them and knows how much work they take to make.  but my question is.... do any of you know of a better aka cheaper way to buy these...orrrrr do any of you have some you'd be looking to sell? i'm sure i'll just have to suck it up and pay the 50ish bucks once we have money again(adopting that dog from the pound wiped us out for the next month)  but i thought it couldn't hurt to ask.  OR if any of you experienced folks know of a different cheaper way to make it spinable....
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / prosthetic breast pattern on: August 06, 2005 03:40:05 PM

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / gloves for popeye????? on: August 06, 2005 09:32:47 AM
hahahahaha i apologize in advance to whoever made these... a lot of work and design went into them.  but all i could envision was popeye wearing them over his enormous arms

i found it in the interweave gallery
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / size 13 mens? on: August 06, 2005 09:27:35 AM
so i'm making a sock for my buddy al.... i didn't have a tape measure when i last saw him.  so i couldn't measure his foot but he kept telling me he's a size 13.  does anyone know of a website that gives the exact inches for shoe sizes... OR do any of you knitter boys have size 13 dogs or any of you girl knitters have boys in yer life with 13 feet? that you could measure for me?  i think i might just dip into my 'expensive grown up couch' fund from under the bed to go buy the yarn for this finally Smiley thanks lovies!
19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting for amputees on: August 03, 2005 02:30:52 PM
so, my buddy lost his leg recently thanks to that old asshole, diabetes.  we went camping with brother al a few weeks ago and i told him i wanted to make him some sock sets so he'd look nice and sporty for the ladies.  his eyes just sparkled and shined.  said the brighter and more rainbowy the better  Grin  god bless folks who have that sort of positive scew on a hard situation... anyhoo, my question is, has anyone else ever made a stump sock?  i did a google search and found the most hideous clinical looking things.... and finally one pattern.  i'll post pics once i make it.... i just don't understand why there isn't a market out there offering hand made goods for those who are missing limbs.  i've known some pretty damn proud, rockin, and fashionable folks who are missing arms and legs that i think would dig this.  hmmmm any input would be nice Smiley  perhaps this little gift for motorcycle Al is the start of a new biz for me
20  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / opium den bathroom?? *pic added* on: July 31, 2005 01:39:00 PM
i just saw an opium den themed bathroom in some magazine but can't for the life of me remember which one.  grrrrrrr and my husband said we could start with the bathroom cuz it's the easiest to tackle.  thinkin rich red painted walls, paint those fugly 80's esque faux wood cabinets and sink stand glossy black and hang some unique lanterns....  but i think i need the article with picture to fully sway him in my direction Smiley  anyone seen it?Huh coulda been in a bust issue a month back.... or readymade.  can't imagine seeing it in my martha's or Sunset.... hellllp
