1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Women Who Kick A@# on: January 25, 2006 08:45:49 PM
Here are some modern business women who kick ass.  The only historical woman I can think of started her own haircare products line, but I can't remember her name.

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Caron's Simply Shawl on: January 22, 2006 03:28:50 PM
That's a really pretty shawl.  I knit a shawl with the same yarn, heather gray old shale pattern with that same light rose color crocheted around the edges in a wide, fluted, ruffly pattern, and crocheted a flower in pink for a pin to close the shawl.  I normally don't like acrylic yarns, but Simply Soft is one of the better (softer) ones.  I'm crocheting a monkey with the leftover pink and grey for my niece- I think it will make a great stuffed animal.

That is too cute.  I love old dish towels.

Oh, try the shirt again with a fabric marker!  (Or a sharpie laundry marker if you like the sharpie look/ feel). That design is way too cool to give up.

I love the rainbow-y color groupings, and I love even more the way it contrasts with the old b&w photo in the frame.  Smiley

it might also be neat to starch the yarn, then laquer it, maybe?

Oooh, starching it would be cool.  You could even blow up a large balloon and wrap starch-soaked yarn around it in a squiggly way, overlapping the yarn a lot.  Let it dry, pop the balloon, cut away part of the bottom and add the hardware scavenged from an old lampshade somehow.  Then you would have a yarn balloon lampshade!  The top doesn't need to be open like a normal lampshade, because there are holes already there to let light out.  Me and my too-big yarn stash (and my old, ugly lamp) are liking this idea more and more.

Oh, btw, those two placemats you hung on the wall would make great "frames"- attach a picture to the middle so the bamboo shows around the picture.  Maybe some painted Hibiscus to match those great barstools you did? (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75102.0)  I'm so jealous you live in Hawaii.

That is such a wonderful idea!  It looks beautiful.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Vogue Knitting (Winter 2005/2006) on: January 21, 2006 07:30:12 AM
I didn't really care for most of the pieces in this issue, either.  The patterns I liked were the plain cabled sweaters, and those sorts of patterns are a dime a dozen.  The 'Under Construction' pieces looked sloppy and thrown together to me.  They do look like someone got a third of a way through a sweater and said to hell with it.  I'm glad I don't subscribe to this magazine.  I only pick it up when I see something really original and fun, and well thought out.
10  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: $1 patterns @ Hancock fabrics!! on: January 20, 2006 06:46:26 PM
Ah, cool.  They had Butterick patterns for a dollar a few weeks ago, which is what got me sewing again (and into trouble, too many crafts, not enough time, $, space...)

Thanks for the heads up!
