32  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / Re:Canadian Easter Egg-Stra-Va-Gan-Zah! on: April 10, 2004 03:55:20 PM
being from the other side of the pond, i know little about canada except what americans have told me: that canadians are obsessed with (often bizarre) winter sports, and say "eh" a lot. I never knew that canadian culture encluded such a rich tradition of easter, errr, fun.

in my country of birth, greece, there is no easter bunny. instead, at easter, hard-boiled eggs are dyed red, symbolic of the blood of christ (yum!), and children are given live chicks as pets, which are fed on a traditional diet of chips and sweets and invariably die within the week. this from the country that brought you - and i'm not kidding - the christmas boat, as a predecessor of the now-popular fir tree.  Shocked
33  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:In need of craft ideas using recycled computer parts... on: April 10, 2004 03:26:54 PM
i have seen a lot of things made out of old circuit boards, but things like notebooks, clocks, nothing you could use at a wedding reception. maybe you could make coasters or placemats?

errr, we have a small coffee table that is actually an old computer case. well, we like to think of it as being a coffee table, but it really is just an old computer case that was lying around that people started leaving their teacups on!

not to put a downer on things, but if you haven't already, it would be a good idea to consider the logistics of collecting the dozens of old computers you will need in order to decorate for an entire wedding reception - eg how many will you need, where/who are you going to get them from, have you the space to store them.

35  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re:"Cat Gate" on: April 10, 2004 02:58:02 PM
err, a cat flap is the usual solution. you can get ones that can be put through glass - in fact ours was in a glass panel at the bottom of the back door until the door was replaced recently. some people have them for dogs, but if the dog is any bigger than a cat a burgler can get in through the flap!

a very simple solution would be to hang a beaded curtain, or one of those ones made of plastic strips, across the window. those are designed especially to hang across doors to keep the flies out - especially the plastic strip ones, which have absolutely no decorative value! unfortunately they catch on things, blow in the wind and probably aren't that effective at keeping out insects.

37  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re:Yarn - bits & pieces on: April 07, 2004 04:37:20 PM
depends how long the pieces are, i guess

personally, i'd attempt it and see how far you get.  
38  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re:knit for doggies! on: April 06, 2004 12:36:39 PM
i was told that (in the UK at least) "dag" is an insult derived from a term for the horrible manky dangly bits of wool on a sheep's backside! it's certainly an insult here, in some parts of the country.

knitty has a pattern for a jumper for a small dog

it looks like it's for a much smaller dog, but i guess you could just knit it with a thicker yarn on bigger needles to increase the guage, or rewrite the pattern for your dog's size.

shoe leather is pretty tough, i'd just give them away. maybe you could sell them on ebay.
