11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Dog/Pet-related Botches? on: April 17, 2007 09:05:38 AM
My cat ate a piece of ribbon once. Just thought i should tell you guys.

About a year ago, I got an email from my uncle about his cat - Steve - 

The cost of an adopted cat $0

A roll of gift ribbon . $2

Watching the cat joyfully playing with ribbon priceless

Waking up to:
a cat who obviously ate the ribbon
having it hang out of his butt
taking him to the vet and finding out he needs surgery $1,500+

They ended up removing about a foot of ribbon and a furball.

Steve's fine now.  Cheesy
12  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: 2007 April Wishlist Swap on: April 06, 2007 08:44:31 AM
I'm in Toronto, Canada!  I'm 29... work full time and volunteer the majority of my free time to a children's community theatre company.  I have a six month old puppy and haven't slept much since I got her. I love to knit, felt and learn about new crafts.  I have a new sewing machine that I haven't done much more than look at. I'm itching to learn how to use it! 

Here's my list, in no particular order: [thanks so much for taking the time to look through it!]

1. Caron Simply Soft Yarn - i can't find it here. I would love colours in white, grey, black, blues, greens, chocolate brown, reds... enough to make a hat or mittens!

2. soap making kit - especially the teeny tiny soaps found here!

3. sewing kit - I have visions of making kanzashi flowers, tote bags, fabric headbands, cinnamon scented hot pads and quilts. My fabric stash is pitiful. And I'm pretty clueless about where to begin. Huh  A project to get my started would be fantastic.

4. Supplies - yarn, wool roving, wool felt, twill ribbon, fabric (fleece, cotton, LINEN)... if you're cleaning out your closet for spring cleaning....*hint hint nudge nudge*  THANKS ohsweetie!!  I'm so excited!

5. A doggy bag - as in a diaper bag for my puppy! I don't know why, but we can't travel light when we go visiting. There's the poop bag, toys, wipes, treats, food, towel, paper towels in case of accidents etc.

6. Small fabric bag - like a lunch bag or something shaped like a typical gift bag but sturdier - if it can be embroidered with my puppy's name on it, that'd be so awesome... she can take it with her to puppy daycare and it can hold her leash, treats, toys and food for the day.  (I know what you're thinking...puppy daycare?!!!)

7. A fabric belt - something in pink, white, brown, blue...fun/flirty...

8. Tissue paper holder

9. amigurumi  - cat, dog, turtle...

10. fabric headbands

11. Pink Sock Monkey like this one:https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=126018.0

12. lipbalm holder/keychain

13. knit sock kit... I'm dying to try it...

14. yarn dying kit

15. stencilling kit - particularly for onesies or totes

16. Surprise me from my wists!  There's lots of loves and stuff I drool over on it!http://www.wists.com/Ember77

thanks so so so so much for looking!
