1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Bottomweight fabric on: April 04, 2008 07:17:53 AM
Does anyone know what classifies a fabric as a bottomweight?  I've googled it and looked on several forums to no avail.  This is strictly for my own curiosity Smiley  Thanks...
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / invitation wording on: July 30, 2007 09:13:42 PM
Need a little help...So we're trying to do our invitations, right down to making the envelopes ourselves, I know, I know-I'm insane.
My middle name, and what I go by, is Jill.  His first name, and sometimes what he goes by (school, work, etc.) is Jack. So we were thinking of playing off that.
We fancy ourselves pretty hip-music, art, love retro and vintage, all that stuff. And our wedding style is pretty casual and DIY.  Our invite colors are chocolate, turquoise and pale yellow.
Any ideas for hip, fun invite wording, not too cheesy, not too boring, and not too much of a nursery rhyme??
I'm so demanding... Wink
3  California / California: South / wedding in LA on: June 20, 2007 03:13:13 PM
Alright ladies, I need some help!  I live in LA, am getting married in Oct and I don't have a ceremony site yet!!  Our plans have changed a couple of times...I never really had a "vision" for my wedding day, just always assumed I would elope, but alas, we're having a wedding.
I've looked into museums-no go. I don't want to go to the beach, to far away (I live in the valley), but am open the la, hollywood, pasadena, downtown...Any ideas??
I'm trying to be as crafty as possible with everything, but I think I'm starting to freak out a little!
4  UNITED STATES / Hawaii / beach wedding in october on: February 22, 2007 02:27:50 AM
Hi all! 
So I just left your beautiful state last week and miss the fresh air already (I live in LA!)  I got engaged to my long term boyfriend on Bellows Beach in Oahu while there!  We're planning a to go back and get married in October.  I definately need some help if anyone can??  We are inviting our immediate family (11 including us) and some of our closest friends, maybe no more than 30-35 total guests at the most.  And of course we'll be DIYing anything we can. 

1. Venues for the ceremony?  We may go back to Bellows (east side) and get married on the beach.  We want something natural, or a very small quaint chapel.

2. Venues for the reception?  We found a great vacation rental that we may just do the reception at and have catered, but I'm afraid it may not be big enough.

3. Caterers?  I havn't found all that many on the web.  I think we want to keep with the local and do a Hawaii style BBQ.  Very casual sort of thing.

4. Photographer.  I'm prepared to spend a little cash here cause there's just no way around it.  If you know any up and comers that want to help build a portfolio or any suggestions would help.

5. Florist.  Again, I want to keep it local and what's in season.  Plus, I'm not having any attendants.  There's enough to worry about getting the two of us dressed  Cheesy

6. Officiant.  We're not really religious, but both sets of parents are.  We just don't want some new agey sort or some over the top religious "woman must obey" sort of stuff.

Is that enough  Grin??  Thank you for any and all help, it is greatly appreciated!!!!
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / fever blisters/cold sores on: July 22, 2005 08:27:50 PM
Who else has a problem with these?
I tend to get them if I've been sunburned or after being sick.  I've tried all kinds of remedies but they still seem to last about a week or so.  I've used the normal stuff---campho phenique (which my dad thinks will cure anything), carmex, taking lysine and the variouse numbing stuff.

Anyone have any suggestions??
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / new to knitting, a couple of problems on: December 28, 2004 12:56:01 PM
I was showed the basics of knitting the other night and am having some problems!!  I've been just practicing with some cheap acrylic yarn so I don't know if that's the problem or not? 
Doing the knit stitch it is so tight on the needles it's hard to work more.  I tried a method mentioned in a book to cast on with two needles then pull one out.  That was fine until I knitted the first row and the slip stitch was so loose. 
Next problem is I have extra stitches appearing.  What am I doing wrong??  I don't want to move on until I can figure it out.  Any advice?
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Crocheted/Knitted Pillows on: September 30, 2004 12:58:47 AM
Not quite sure to post here or knit or crochet topics...I want to make some pillows that are crocheted on the front face and a satin or silk-like fabric on the back.  How do I sew the two sides together?  Machine or hand?
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / a different kind of necktie question on: July 15, 2004 08:44:37 PM
I work at a restaurant that we have to wear ties.  Well, a bartender (a guy) and I got into a discussion about who could transform the tie into the most outrageous tie ever seen.  He knows how to sew (hand and machine)  and has a bedazzler! Not the average guy.  I have faith in myself but sounds like he's pretty crafty too!  Last time we talked he said he needed a battery for his tie...lights maybe? 
So far I have thought of different felt creations, XXX embroidery (my tie is mostly covered by an apron, so it would be covered anyway).
I have tons of fabric, glue, beads, sewing machine, resin supplies, thread, buttons, felt, ribbons, etc.  And I'm willing to shell out a little cash to show him who's the craftiest! Grin 
Fellow craftsters, help me show him up, any ideas, the crazier the better, would be very appreciated.
I'll post results of the final showing.
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / afghan edging on: April 15, 2004 10:41:05 PM
Okay, I'm very close to being done with my first afghan.  A few questions for the expert crocheters out there.  My edges are not even--a few stitches off here and there--but I've gone so far I don't want to turn back.  How do I edge the afghan to make it look neat?  And the corners?  My crochet book does not explain it well enough.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / cocktail stirrers on: April 15, 2004 10:13:47 PM
Once again, I have a great vintage item and need help.  I bought these coctail stirrers years ago and from frequent use Grin one of the clear plastic dowels broke off at the edge of the die.  I think I can drill out the remains of the plastic but want to find a replacement plastic dowel to glue in and complete the set.  I have had no luck so far.  The dowels are 1/8th of an inch thick.  Any ideas???
