1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Man crafts? on: August 11, 2006 08:45:14 AM
My hubby finally is getting some good ol leisure time away from work. He'd like to get into a hobby but preferably not much equipment/space needed. I already suggested wood-burning and he nixed that. What kinds of things are you guys or your husbands into?
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / tension how-to site on: May 09, 2006 10:57:58 AM
for anyone struggling with sewing machine tension, here's a site that really helped me stop that birdnesting crap and the hundreds other problems bad tension causes.....

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / first wedding anniversary idea on: May 03, 2006 11:01:37 AM
i saw this online somewhere and thought i'd share....first wedding anniversaries are paper so it suggested making a book/journal that the couple can record how they spend each anniversary as they go. thought it was cute so i'm making one for our anniv. i'm sure hubby will roll his eyes at my sentimentality, but whatever, he's the one who married me  Tongue
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / quilted tote for Mother's Day on: April 25, 2006 06:42:33 AM
I'm really happy with how this tote turned out for my MIL... i tried a stencil cord border on the top, and it's not perfect (i figured it wouldn't be so i used transparent thread) but whatever, it's probably the best i've done so far  Tongue

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / MIL's quilted tote (w/better pic) on: April 24, 2006 10:34:26 AM
i made this tote for my mil for mother's day and i just can't believe how well it turned out, this is honestly my best sewing so far   Grin so i thanked my machine for being so good to me....
it's a little hard to see the quilting since i used transparent thread, but it's little diamonds with a cord-type border on the top, trust me  Wink

Maybe this shows it slightly better, that thread is really hard to pick up  Sad
6  Ohio / Ohio: Northeast / Any Akronites? on: April 18, 2006 12:14:02 PM
Hi--Anyone here live in/around Akron? I'm in Fairlawn....I should drive my lazy butt up to Cleveland more often, but my best intentions never seem to happen  Wink I'm mostly into sewing/quilting but I'm also interested in most other stuff. Anyway, if anyone's interested in getting something together here in beautiful Summit County, let me know! BTW, if anyone's looking for fabric shops around here I finally went to the Fabric Peddler on College St. in Wadsworth, she had some great stuff  Smiley
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / pinwheel tote bag on: February 01, 2006 08:14:29 AM
since the other tote bag wound up a wall hanging i still had to make a tote bag....not that i even needed a tote bag in the first place, but whatever  Wink the sides were a little hairy, but i'm really happy with how this turned out!! sorry about the bad pics! it's hard to tell but i quilted diamonds into the black border that (conveniently) matched up with the squares in the block

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / bear's paw wall hanging on: February 01, 2006 08:10:34 AM
this originally was going to be a tote bag but i loved it so much in the end i wanted to hang it on my wall to gaze lovingly at. seriously.  Cheesy i also love the swirly fabric! i'm fairly new to quilting and i'm estatic that the squares actually matched up in the end! comments/criticisms?

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / how'd i get it so wrong?? on: January 03, 2006 07:20:02 AM
i started a duvet cover for a down comforter, kind of a "practice project" for quilting basics. how i managed to screw up sewing two squares together is beyond me  Sad i mis-measured the comforter, so i had to add borders, which wasn't too bad b/c it actually would look better. then i had to add a little here, fudge a little there, now the thing still isn't matching up. and it's so huge it's hard to handle. ugh. my husband just wants me to can it and save my sanity. god is this frustrating! before i had a hard time cutting straight yet i measured OK. this time i cut fine, i just messed up everything else! someone please reassure me that one of these days i'll do two or three things right on one project!  Embarrassed
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / futon mattress? on: September 30, 2005 11:51:01 AM
we bought a futon a year ago and the mattress is so thin i can feel the wood when i sit on it....so i want to get a new mattress but they're so stinkin' expensive. i was thinking of just getting those foam mattress pads and sandwiching the old mattress then just sewing together a new cover for it. would that work? or would i just be making a big fire hazard? any other suggestions? we don't sleep on it much, just want to cushion my tush while i watch csi  Wink
