Holy cow, talk about swap anxiety!  Everything so far is totally awesome!  I'm still working like mad here.

Regarding 35mm plastic film canisters:


The gist:  No, film canisters have no toxic anything in them.  That is an urban myth.

Thanks guys!

And yeah, Kit has a great eye for color.  She picked the paint colors for her bedroom, too, and it looks fantastic.

I promised my daughter I'd make her 1st day of school dress again this year.  (And yes, it's been all school year since I made it, but I am only now posting it.  Don't judge me.  lol )  After a trip to the fabric store with Kit in tow to pick out fabric and pattern, a few hours of sewing, some frustrating adjustments, and a ridiculously pleased mommy, we arrived at this:

Kit chose the fabrics, and they're really pretty great.  Guitars AND GREEN, it was perfect.  In this pattern, the bodice is lined in front, but the straps and skirt are not.  I lined my straps because I thought it looked a lot nicer.  There is no elastic on the back of the dress in the pattern, but I just ran a piece across the back a bit to pull it in and make it fit better for longer.  So I could make the size she was growing into and she'd get to wear at at the beginning and end of one school year... two summers.  

The pattern is VERY simple, and includes dress-length and shirt-length shirts, plus shorts and capris.  I haven't tried the pants yet, but I think they'll be fun, and I actually bought the pattern in the other, larger sizes as well, because I liked it so much.  I'm basically a novice seamstress.  I've been sewing a LONG time, but not a LOT of things. lol  I think sat down to make my sister barbie clothes for christmas the year I was 7, but have never really done much at all.  I've packed about 2 years worth of sewing into 25.  Anyway, though, this pattern was totally doable for my limited skills, it finishes very nicely all on it's own, and I think it looks great. Cheesy

Oooh, awesome!  My daughter appropriated my Handmade is Better T-shirt, and I need one for me.  (7-year-old wearing "Handmade is Better" T-shirt to school = awesome.  Mom not having "Handmade is Better" T-shirt to wear when she wants it = not as awesome.)

I'm about 4" of serious cables away (Yay almost done with kilt hose!) from being able to start my project, but my partner *cough* hasn't sent me her measurements yet!!  Please please, PinkMafia, what is your bust size?!  I need to know!  (Poor PinkMafia.  At the risk of informing her of my intentions, I pretty well sent her a BOOK of measurement requests.  I don't think I even know that much about what size I am, let alone anyone else.  lol)

Oooooohhhhh.... Kaffe Fassett.  VERY inspirational.

There's also a Japanese knit designer pictured in the back of the History of Hand Knits book that I think you'd adore, Always.  Simply gorgeous stuff.  I'll look up a name when I get home.

No fair, I want to be in PinkMafia's club, but I already decided on my project AND have supplies.  (Could I be some kind of junior member if one of the reasons I chose the project I did is because I already had supplies for it in my stash?  That isn't really over-achieving, that's just laziness...)
