It's not the kid I am worried about...it's the mother I would have to look after.  This site is pretty wonderful though.  I am thinking of all the damage I could do at this 4th of July Potluck b-b-q I was invited to.  *evil laugh*

   My boss's daughter is turning 5 and she has asked to me help out at the birthday party by helping the kids with a craft.  She suggested gimp, but I have this feeling that there has got to be a better idea.  The party is beach themed and will take place outside by the pool.  Any ideas of what we should have the kids do would be GREATLY appreciated.

   Assuming that knickers are the same as "panties," here is a site that tells you how to make them out of old T-shirts -

   Are you going to be on a plane or a train/car?  On a rather long trip with my sister last summer, we had some concern about bringing needles on the plane...especially the metal ones.  We decided to pack wooden ones in our check-in bags in the end.  I used to like making friendship bracelets when i was little.  That might be easy to do while travelling.

  Spaghetti pies, cous-cous, calzones, frittatas.  All of these are nice because you can use leftovers to spice them up.

  You could spruce them up with some embroidery...or you could sew them together and make pillows.
337  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Polka Dot Dress on: May 10, 2004 09:10:12 AM

  My advice would be to find a friend who knows how to asew before you start anything.  A book can be helpful, but it isn't the same as having someone who can show you what you need to to.  I have also heard there are some good tutorials available online as well.  Have you picked a pattern yet?

  PS - I'm working on a polka dot dress myself! Smiley
338  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re:Embroidery Advice? on: April 12, 2004 05:00:33 AM

   I have a book called Mary Thomas' Dictionery of Embroidery Stitches.  The nice thing about it is that it seperates the stitches into chapters that tell you what the stitch is mainly used for.  For instance, there are chapters called Outline Stitches, Border Stitches, Filling stitches, etc.  The pictures are pretty clear as well and show samples of each of the stitches so you can see how they look doing curves and such.

  Hope that helps a bit. Smiley
339  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:Soda can tabs on: March 29, 2004 04:46:35 AM

  I wonder if you could string them together like chainmail.  It might require a lot of work and wire, but then you could make a purse with the pieces.

   Try making him calzone.  All you need to do is buy pizza dough at the supermarket, cook some kind of filling for it, and then roll the filling up in the dough.  My sister usually makes one long one with the dough and we eat it all week.

  Some ideas for filling:

   olives, cheese, spinich, and roasted peppers
   ham, salami, cheese, mushrooms
   The trick is not to use anything with too much water in it or the calzone will get soggy or leak when you bake you.  

  Hope that helps a little.
