ragadyanne - sorry I'm late replying, but yes, I filled it in with embroidery.

Sorry I missed it - I was probably somewhere between Memphis and Birmingham on the WORST TRIP EVER from Arkansas to Georgia. I had a quarter tank of gas an hour west of Memphis and my debit card wouldn't work - turns out the transfer I made hadn't gone through yet and I had no credit cards and about $2 cash. So, I had to wait for Dave to wire money to the closest Western Union and lost like an hour during the whole ordeal. Then, I had to drive through torrential downpours with two screaming kids in the back seat and all the other drivers apparantly lost their brain when it started raining because they kept doing stupid crap like braking suddenly while hydroplaning. GAH!!!!

Yeah, so I would have much preferred embroidering with you guys. Glad it went well, though.

23  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Rusty bike on: May 01, 2004 04:10:20 PM
So I found this bike in a trash pile:

It's a Rollfast Skoot, circa 1971. It has a leopard print banana seat in good condition, the frame is great, but the mudguards, handlebars, rims, etc are rusty as hell and it needs the chain, tires, tubes, etc replaced and a major greasing.

I started getting after it with some steel wool and most of the rust is coming off the mudguards just fine, but it's taking FOREVER! I can do that if I have to, but does anyone know of a quicker way to get rid of rust? Also, does anyone know of a good online source for bike parts? Oh, and ideas for glam-ing up the bike are welcome as well  Wink

Oh yeah - I was thinking maybe we could just do a "free craft" day. Like we could just bring what we're working on and have folks to talk to while we do it - maybe even get some live feedback on what we're doing? For those who don't have anything to work on, maybe we could have some kits or materials for them to start something? I could bring some pre-patterned fabric and hoops for embroidery as well as floss, needles, etc. I can also bring paper art stuff and magnet stuff.

This might be good, too, to see what everyone is into and maybe get some ideas for future meetings.

Thanks! It's a table runner. I'm making placemats, too. It's one of Jenny Hart's designs from http://www.sublimestitching.com

Glad you like it!

Good robot! I'm doing that one on a flannel baby blanket. I like making baby stuff without ducks and bunnies and pink crap all over it. Here's another thing I'm doing:

Sorry it's sidways, but I'm lazy. Anyhoo, I made this embroidery pattern off a vintage sewing pattern illustration. This one is done on a napkin that will become the front of a pillow.

Thought I would show it off:

Mailed mine out on Tuesday - you should get them soon! I hope you like them, they are my first. Undecided

Awesome robot - what a great mother's day present! I love the story behind him, too. A lot of love in that gift.

I love that. I have a toybox and a chest that both need some refurbishing and I love the card idea. I think it would look great done in loteria cards.

Great idea! I, too, am jealous of the card catalog.
