1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Re: (Oldie but) Newbie on: July 11, 2007 08:04:53 PM
So I'm sitting at my table drafting a pattern for a wallet today when I think, "Hey, I should just find a tutorial on Craftster!"

WHOA!  Craftster kicks even more ass than it did when I joined!  The lists of tutorials!  The galleries on the main page!  A blog!  No more random checks - I'm getting back to being a full-on addict!

Okay, so 5 posts is embarrassing for someone who has been a member since 2004, and I have to get to 15 stat so I can swap again (Music is my Aeroplane, here I come), so I'll introduce myself to you.

I'm Sarah.  I live in Idaho.  I make things...out of other things.  (all sorts of things and things!)  And I have 9 more posts to go.

See y'all around!
2  UNITED STATES / Idaho / New LYSs in Cd'A! on: May 16, 2006 07:36:50 PM
  Yes, that's right--there are not one, but two new yarn stores in Coeur d'Alene!  I was lamenting the loss of House of Needlecraft, and then...fabuloso!  The MIL tells me that Boucle's...a yarn store (on 4th street, a block N. of Sherman) is having an open house.  It's a beautiful store with yarns arranged by color and inspirations galore!  They will have a weekly "sit and knit" (aside:  Do people really have that big of a problem with the word BITCH?  It's not like they don't carry the books!) on Thursdays from 5-7 and are offering classes.  They also have a selection of rovings for spinners and will carry spinning wheels after they're up and going.
  So, I'm on my way to the open house, and what do I see on 3rd street, but a big yellow sign that says Harmony Yarn!  It's right next door to JoAnn's, so we stopped there for $1.99 patterns and I went over to check it out.  The inside is sunny yellow, and they were just having the carpet and sign installed.  They said the stock would be moved in this week, and when they were completely finished, the store would have a performance space and feature (local favorite) Doma coffee.
  Holy balls, it's almost more than we could wish for!  We're no longer a barren, yarnless wasteland!  Huzzah!

And actually, I'm in Cd'A.  Howdy, neighbor!
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Painting a fiberglass......sousaphone! on: June 28, 2004 06:19:04 PM
So, my hubby and I bought a cheapo sousaphone (y'know, a tuba that you wear), and we're fixing it all up, giving it a custom paintjob, the works.  We've fixed the brassworks and valves, and now it's time for the fun part--painting!

On fiberglass...
...would I use a plastic-bonding primer and spray paint?  A plastic-bonding primer and regular spray paint?  Just regular spray paint?  Marine/automotive spray paint?

I don't want to use something that would eat away the fiberglass, nor something that would stop vibrations or deaden the sound.  And I want to do it soon--I can't wait to put killer flames on it and play it in the 4th o' July parade!!

Since you've been talking about making the bag out of one piece, here's an example of one I made a couple of weeks ago out of a piece of felt:


I just folded it in half, cut squares out of the bottom (folded) corners, embellished it, and sewed it up.  They are super quick when they're only this big...and so handy!  I also love how the zipper pulls the top wider so the bag's a trapezoid.  Love it, love it, love it!

I saw this and had to whip one up out of an upholstery remnant that was hanging around...so here's mine:

...and since I'm a substitute teacher and I have to have my silly cell with me at all times, I added a pocket to the inside to keep it from colliding with my knitting needles (again).

And I have to get that "This is the coolest site ever and I'm so glad there are other people out there like me!!!"  out there.  Holy cow!  I love it!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!
