1  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Embroidered hanky on: January 29, 2009 07:33:39 PM
I love hankies!  And I believe that all hankies need to be embroidered.  I used a Sublime Stitch pattern for this one.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Harry Potter Scarf on: January 29, 2009 07:29:41 PM
So I meant to knit this for Halloween and I just finished it, January 27.  Shows me to knit to a deadline.  Anyways it's a nice warm scarf.  The pattern is from Charmed Knits and the yarn is Patons Classic Wool Merino.  I should also mention that this scarf is long.  Very long.  Like film-accurate.  I have to lift it up when I bend over so it doesn't drag on the ground.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lurve in a hat on: January 29, 2009 07:24:27 PM
This was a hat I knitted for my fiance.  I am Canadian and I call it a toque; he is American and calls it a beanie.  Whatever.  He wears it.  It came out too big--I increased the size for his brainy head--but I will try to gently shrink it in warm water.  In the meantime, it covers his ears.  Aside from that and my sucky mattress stitch, it turned out pretty well.  The pattern is Knitty's Halfdome and the yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First sewing project--petticoat on: January 29, 2009 07:12:34 PM
This is the first thing I have sewn since high school, in which I made a gym bag.  This is a petticoat with elasticized waist that I made out of some leftover liner fabric and lace trim.  It was loads of fun and pretty easy.  I can't wait to sew more!

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Getting started stringing beads on: August 29, 2007 05:35:04 PM
Hey gang,

If you are a beginner beader, I recommend Getting Started Stringing Beads by Jean Campbell.  Lots of ideas, how-tos, and navigating-around-a-bead-store knowledge.

The greenpeace website also has some good suggestions.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dollar Store Decor on: August 29, 2007 05:28:14 PM
I really didn't like this book.  The ideas were not all that clever, and it just seemed like most of the crafts in it were not that worthwhile.
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: subversive cross-stitch on: August 29, 2007 05:23:25 PM
This is a great book for learning to cross-stitch.  The patterns are easy and fun, and there is graphing available so you can make your own designs too.  Another great thing is that it is not too expensive or overwhelming for a beginner.  You won't have to spend years on these projects!
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Beginner Sewing Books on: August 29, 2007 05:19:32 PM
I like Sew U by Wendy Mullin.  Simple, informative, and well-illustrated.
10  CANADA / British Columbia / Vancouver area bead supplies. on: August 29, 2007 05:07:09 PM
For those of you into beading, do you know of any good bead stores in the vancouver area?  There's country beads on W. 4th, and I think there's one on Granville Island.  Other than that I know that you can sometimes luck out at Walmart, Michaels, or dollar stores.  Any other suggestions?
