1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My new girlie dress. I feel like a movie star...Imagy heavy on: June 19, 2007 09:54:02 AM
I used pattern Simplicity 4265 and modified it as follows:  shortened hem about 6 inches, and added a eyelet lace hem.  Shortened the bodice and took in side tucks in the whole torso area to prevent this floofing effect that vintage shapes tend to create in my midsection....
Here are about 100 photos LOL

Oh yea, I made it starting at 9:30pm on Sunday because I decided I needed a new dress to wear on Monday morning to work  Cheesy

Look, me in a dress!

"Hi, I'm blurry"

"But when you look closely, I'm really not"

"And if you look even closer, I'm even less blurry!"

"If you look up, you'll see my awesome headband"

"And if you look down, you'll get an eyeful of my rad shoes"

"Oh, and for the record, this is what you get if you don't have a timer on your camera...and you resort to using a glass, turtle shaped swizzle stick to attempt to depress your shutter release.  You get a weird bulgy  thing trying to jump free of your arm.  Awesome."

And finally, my favorite shot!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Dress I made a few years ago for a friend's daughter... on: February 26, 2007 12:04:11 PM
The green is a grass green cotton with tiny little white polka dots...and the edging is white with little tiny cherries...

I secretly wanted to make this thing fit me...but alas, I only had so much fabric...



3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / The vile quilt I made for my Mother-In-Law! (oopsie..please move to quilt board) on: February 07, 2006 06:16:17 AM
I swear, this was the WORST quilt book EVER...it took like 30 some pages to explain how to do the 9-patch!!!!  Shocked

After the first 20 some pages, my mom and I gave up and were just winging it cuz the book was that dumb...we sort of want to burn the book now  Grin

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / anyone got a good SUPER chunky sock pattern? on: November 15, 2005 10:11:10 AM
I want to knit some heavy duty socks for my hunting male relatives for christmas...and planned to use Wool Ease Thick and Quick cuz I have a bunch of it lying around...but can't seem to find a pattern for boy socks...found some for ladies...but they would be too small...

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me  Wink
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Intarsia in the round?? Fair Isle?? Or am I plain screwed? on: November 05, 2005 10:55:45 PM
So...I want to knit a baby hat for my cousin's baby (he's been in the hospital since birth on August 2nd because he was born with some pretty severe birth defects...) and I wanted to make it the Umbilical Cord hat...but I want to add a red cross on the front (think medic hat)...and I've tried Intarsia (by dragging the strands back across....which didn't work...the red didn't seal to the white which makes me think I'm doing something wrong though I can't figure out what...and the stranding across the back is getting messy and pully) and it's just not working...is there a way for me to do this with intarsia?

Or do I need to learn fair isle?  Or do I need to attempt to knit this flat and stitch it up???

please help....I'm getting mega frustrated and I'd like to have this thing finished before he leaves the hospital and/or grows out of it  Cheesy

Thanks in advance!
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / How gross does this sound? on: October 11, 2005 06:49:42 AM
I'm craving apple slices dipped in hummus LOL

It probably has a little something to do with my recent obsession with kid food...I've been craving ants on a log, celery and cheez whiz, cinnamon toast...and toast with cheez whiz  Tongue
8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Self portraits... on: September 11, 2005 08:05:45 PM
Let's have em people.

I'm a big self-portrait fan...I sort of fell into it by accident when I was a student because I had like 10 models flake out on me in like 2 weeks...So yea, I'm always interested to see how other people execute self portraits. 

I feel like they are a representation of how people either view themselves, or want to appear to others etc...so how do you feel about them?  Post some of yours!
