1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / "Whacked Out Wives"- stack n whack quilt with Michael Miller 50s housewives... on: June 13, 2006 10:20:58 AM
I finally finished this stack n whack quilt. Started it when I had 1 kid.  Now I have two, and the youngest is 2.5.  It sat half finished in a box for 2.5 years, and I am currently on a mission to get through ALL my UFOs.  Really.

I know, this probably proves I have a warped mind, but I loved using the housewives fabric for the stack n whack pattern, and seeing how the little women looked cut up and re-pieced...  My favorite star has a ring of little barbie-esque heads.

(I included an in process shot for a close up...)
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Frida Bra-hlo (yup, a Frida Kahlo inspired bra...) on: February 05, 2006 04:08:50 PM
An LQS was having an embellished bra challenge, proceeds of entry fee to benefit Susan G. Komen Foundation.  Who can resist turning a bra into something funky? After playing around with various ideas, I came up with the "Frida Bra-hlo, a Lingerie Homage to Frida Kahlo".  My techniques are still pretty rudimentary, but I had fun making it.  Dropped it off at the store for the contest today.

The best part was that except for the actual bra, everything I used came straight from my stash!

Oh, and, the back is awful, I know.
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Here's a newly finished one of mine... on: February 03, 2006 02:40:41 PM

Made this one for my living room wall. Had it professionally quilted, as that's my least favorite part...
4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Tattoo jeans on: December 05, 2005 10:18:35 AM
I'm working on some tattoo jeans- with sublime patterns of course- and would love some input.  I'm also going to add cuffs of some really cute tattoo fabric i bought, but I'm not totally sure how to do that...  Advice loved and welcomed!
5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Pineapple preserves? Where are you? on: October 27, 2005 12:15:13 PM
Can anyone help?  I am having a big ole halloween party for 70 of my nearest and dearest this weekend.  Crap. what was I thinking? anyway- one item  from my "menacing menu" is a pumpkin cheeseball, and I'm supposed to make it with pineapple preserves, which i can't seem to find anywhere. 
suggestions for where to find some, or what to replace them with very welcome. I'm at work and don't have the recipe in front of me, but it's cheese, canned pumpkin, and pineapple preserves blended together...

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / "sew like knitting"??? on: October 24, 2005 11:58:45 AM
Has anyone tried out this technique?  http://www.clotilde.com/cl/product_group.asp?g_id=672002
I saw a sample in a store the other day of an amazingly funky bag, and I want to learn more about it- before I spend too much $$ on books, supplies, etc.

Thanks for any input
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Kitschy Kitchen Kurtains- hanging up and done! on: September 28, 2005 05:48:13 PM
Thanks to some lovely suggestions on the discussion page (thank you all  Cheesy), I attempted my first ever curtains all by myself. I know they're not technically amazing, but I am loving their silliness.   Check em out:
They are a pair, but one seemed sufficient to get the idea!  Also, for folks who loved the fabric , it is still on clearance at http://www.equilter.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_prod.html?p_prodid=34340&sid=31U9Hz1FaJ@H7Kn-42105468035.be[/url]
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / newbie questions on: September 21, 2005 11:59:09 AM
Howdy!  I'm a quilter who is branching out. I've made one cloth doll, and would like to try more.  Can anyone point me to some beginner-friendly patterns- pref. free or cheap?  Huh Thanks!
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Quilt Blog Web Ring? on: September 21, 2005 11:51:56 AM
I'm looking to add my blog to a quilting web ring.  BUT- they all seem very specific for art quilters, traditional quilters, crazy quilters, etc.  I don't fit any of the molds exactly.  I'd say I'm contemporary- my quilts are NOT traditional, but not art.  Some do live on beds.  Some get beaded...  Some are very dull baby quilts.  Sometimes I make dolls or pillows or curtains, and I'm trying to generally branch out and be more crafty.  So...  Does anyone know of a webring for quilters like me- or if I started one up, would there be anyone interested out there in craftster world?  Huh
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My first doll! on: September 19, 2005 07:35:55 PM
I made my first doll recently, and aside from the fact that a)her boobs are about 4 cup sizes different and b) I am terrified to add a face, i really like her.  Also- the fabric placement of the star right on her bum was total coincidence.
