11  Oregon / Oregon: Northwest / Painting supplies needed for disabled artist on: May 27, 2008 09:43:37 AM
Hi Portland Craftsters,

A good friend of mine has cerebral palsy and draws/paints with her mouth.  She's applying for a really great program called Mouth and Foot Painting Artists that would pay for art school, then guarantee an income for the rest of her life.  It's an amazing opportunity, and I'm really excited for her.

To apply, she needs to do six paintings.  I was hoping some fellow Craftsters might be able to donate some supplies (canvases, brushes, paints - especially watercolors) to the cause.  I would be happy to pick them up for her.  Just post or PM me if you'd like to help out.

Thank you!

12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Basket-style handbag with bamboo handles on: January 16, 2008 07:12:40 PM
For my mom's birthday, I made a purse using fabric my grandma sent from Japan:

It looks a little lumpier in the photo than it does in person!  It's got a navy blue lining and magnetic snap.  I got the pattern here: http://www.u-handbag.com/index.php?main_page=news_manager&pages_id=2 (scroll down to the bottom of the page).

I skipped reinforcing the bottom, and they didn't have any bag feet when I went to the store.  So it ended up being a pretty quick project!  I hope she likes it.

My parents' friends are expecting their first grandchild, so this is for holding the hand puppets my parents got for them:

We got lucky, and even found matching ribbon for the drawstring Smiley  I used this tutorial.
14  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cabled scarf on: September 03, 2007 08:10:09 PM
I had this beautiful merino wool (color doesn't come out in the pics, but it's Sapphire Gems in Teal) for about a year and a half and couldn't find the perfect project.  Then I saw a gorgeous cable pattern in "Inventive Cable Knits" by Fiona Ellis, and it was love at first sight!  Here's the whole scarf blocking, sorry you can't really see the detail:

And here's the pattern close up:

I just can't wait for winter now!

16  Oregon / Oregon: Northwest / PSA: Yarn sale at Fred Meyer on: April 28, 2007 06:08:03 PM
Buy two get one free!  Plus a lot of the yarns are on sale to start with.  Woo hoo!
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simplicity 4097 - my first dress! on: March 31, 2007 09:05:13 PM
Adorn Magazine was offering the pattern for free, so I thought, "Why not?"

It's got plenty of mistakes, but for a first dress I'm pretty damn proud.  It fits well except for the armholes, but I think they'd fit perfectly over a turtleneck sweater instead of a thin shirt.  It's a nice dark charcoal wool I got at 40% off, and I finished it just in time to wear to the movies tonight!  There are big pockets that are pretty hard to see - if you want to see it made properly, check out nushybum's.

Anyone interested in putting together a fair for this summer?  We could talk about it at Haven on the 7th.
19  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First quilting project - log cabin apron with pockets! on: January 17, 2007 04:44:55 PM
I was watching "Uncommon Threads" on Monday, they were making a log cabin apron.  I thought it was great, except it didn't have any pockets!  So I thought about it, went to the fabric store that afternoon, and then got snowed in since Tuesday, and here's the result!

The fabrics I scrounged together in the remnants section:

The finished apron:

Inside of the pockets:

I was learning as I went along, but I'm very happy with the (slightly crooked) results!  I think it's going to end up being a gift for someone.
