1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: The random RESIN question thread! on: September 16, 2012 03:48:54 PM
I have been doing resin jewelry for about a year and have never run into my current problem. Here it goes.

I have sanded down my pendants to the shape I want. I washed the sanded resin away and let them dry overnight. When I went to put a thin layer of resin over the pieces to finish them, the resin will not stick. Thinking perhaps I mixed wrong. I tossed the batch and started over. Same problem! Maybe I didn't let them dry enough. So that was last weekend.

I went out to my work bench today and tried again. Same problem. I was attempting to put a thin coat with a toothpick, the resin almost appears to dry up on contact with the pendant. It leaves a weird, spotty finish. I'm stumped. I have busted my butt over these pendants so I may have to figure out another way to finish them (any ideas?), but any clues as to what is happening? Only thing I did differently on these is I got a higher grit sandpaper.

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Curtains in place of missing cabinet doors? on: November 30, 2009 09:36:00 AM
I don't have any pictures of my sad excuse for a kitchen but I live in a very small apartment.  When it was remodeled before I moved in several years ago...two of the cabinet doors were lost.  Originally I thought, "cute!  I could do what interior designers do and do the open cabinet thing."  However, when I realized I don't have a pantry, that idea went out the door and I have two exposed cabinets. 

I've been Googling for ideas but haven't really come up with much in the way of pictures.  I'm thinking with a nice print fabric, it could liven up the kitchen.

Has anyone done this or have any ideas?

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Christmas 2009, what are you making? on: October 29, 2009 01:30:32 PM
Stepmom - Branching Out scarf in a moss green
Stepsister - knit purse
BFF - leaf scarf in fall colors
Dad - I'm clueless on this one.  I'm primarily a knitter and jewelry maker so I'm not sure what I have time to make knit-wise for him, I'm not advanced enough for a sweater.  Any ideas?
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: My First Quilt! on: August 24, 2009 01:12:09 PM
It looks great for being your first quilt!  Did you use a kit?  I really want to learn to quilt but it looks incredibly intimidating.

Thanks for the link!  I will look up San Mateo colleges too...doesn't have to be directly in the City. 
6  California / California: North / San Francisco craft workshops on: April 14, 2009 02:16:53 PM
I am having a hard time finding classes in my area for things like beginners quilting and PMC jewelry making...or just general craft classes.  I'd love to find some weekend workshops in San Francisco, possibly in May.  I have tried Craft Gym but came up empty on finding any dates. 

Any pointers would be welcomed!

What is the brand of shoes you used for the pumps?  I love the style and you did beautiful work on them!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Want to make a halter...need pattern! on: April 20, 2008 07:20:11 PM
I'm a born-again machine sewer and I'm just now teaching myself to use patterns after 8 years of only hand sewing.  I want to make a halter like this...

Anyone know where I can find a pattern?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I need this converted into a chart/graph... on: September 26, 2007 07:18:42 AM
Is there a way to keep it from blurring?  The squares aren't defined.
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I need this converted into a chart/graph... on: September 25, 2007 09:34:23 PM
Would someone be willing to do this for me?  For some reason I'm having a hard time getting it to look right in a chart...I tried one of the automatic picture to graph and it doesn't look right.

I think it's my first graph project and I'm having a hard time figuring it out and how it's supposed to look.


I'd like it in a chart like this...


I'd be eternally grateful!!
