1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Rodeo Girl Makeup bag! on: August 15, 2007 10:02:20 AM
I was feeling a little "yee-ha!" so when I needed a little bag for all my various things I carry with me daily (to keep me looking pretty!) in my purse, I decided to cowgirl it up a bit

Just a simple calico bag with a horseshoe applique on it.

here's the detail of the horseshoe!  The photo is fuzzy!  Pretend it was supposed to look like that!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / The most wonderful knee socks you've ever knit? on: August 15, 2007 09:48:30 AM
I adore knitting socks, and on a recent trip to San Juan Island (in Puget Sound, near Seattle), I picked up lovely wonderful Alpaca yarn from a farm (and!  I met the little Alpacas who created such lovely and soft fiber!).

So, I want this yarn to be knit into beautiful knee socks.  Literally, the most amazing knee socks ever.  Knee socks that would make your grandma weep with joy.  THOSE kind of knee socks.

I've checked out Cookie A's sock patterns (http://www.cookiea.com), and I enjoy her patterns a lot.  I'm just wondering if anyone has any other wonderful, totally perfect in every way knee sock patterns they would like to suggest?

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / What every lady sailor needs! on: June 05, 2006 12:50:33 PM
Thanks to a sizeable about of striped fabric I found at the local thrift store, I can create everything a lady sailor would need when she's taking a night on the town:

The pouch (for gold dubloons and tampons):



zipper detail

The clutch (for your ships keys and condoms in case you meet sexy pirates):




The skirt (because going out nude isn't very sailorly):

(the skirt is a wrap skirt in about a size 12 american.  I am totally partially nude in that photo.  I bet you wish you could see my amazing sailor cans.)
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / saucy cap for the lady taxi drivers in all of us on: January 16, 2006 06:06:05 AM
I really wanted one of those adorable knit caps I've seen everywhere, but have been too lazy to figure out the knit pattern, so i made a quicker one out of crochet instead!

(please excuse the un-showered-ness of this picture)

I have enough yarn left over, so I made a mini scarf to go with it:

5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / tiny pie! on: January 11, 2006 06:12:13 AM
I made a bunch of tiny apple pies from an idea I saw on notmartha.com

I think they're ultra adorable, and are perfect to bring to work!  The filling is apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a little cardamom for spice.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / punk rock = old lady shrugs on: January 11, 2006 06:07:06 AM
At least, that's what I keep telling myself everytime I make one of them.

Here's the front, and that's me looking saucy!  Or cheesy?  Cheesy Saucy?  Sounds like lunch...

...and the back to show off the peppermint stripe pattern I worked in on this.

bitchin' wall tattoo!

i just bought some dollar store contact paper and decided to see if it would actually stick to me wall.  it does!  and it looks really cute!  the future plans for this is a pirate ship, which will take a lot of contact paper, but honestly, a dollar?  how can you complain?
8  Pennsylvania / Pennsylvania: Southeast / PHILLY: anyone have time to teach me to spin yarn? on: July 08, 2005 09:08:56 AM

9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / look! billy idol loves stenciling! on: April 11, 2005 10:45:00 AM
i went to the billy idol concert (i know, i know, you're jealous.  it's ok) and his stage setup has a HUGE black and white pattern of his face! the first thing i thought when i saw it was, "dude, that would make a sweet stencil for a shirt"

maybe this means that i spend too much time on the craftster forum? 

look!  it's true!  it would make an awesome stencil.

ok, and just in case you were wondering, yes, he still does look hot.
