1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help me salvage this project - quilt for my mom's 50th birthday on: May 16, 2010 06:18:55 PM
We live 2500 miles away so I won't be with her.  She'll actually be getting it about a month after her birthday since she's coming to visit. 

Good idea though!

Thank you for those recommendations.  Seems so simple but I never thought about it!

I'm a little disgusted that some of my family members haven't responded at all.  I'm trying to remind myself that not everyone can be crafty though!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Help me salvage this project - quilt for my mom's 50th birthday on: May 15, 2010 05:37:11 PM
I had this brilliant idea to make my mom a quilt for her 50th birthday not only to celebrate her birthday and also to celebrate this new part in her life as her difficult divorce from an abusive husband winds down.

I emailed everyone that I could that she knows (family, old friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc) and asked them to mail me one or more squares.  I planned to do a checkerboard pattern of a fabric that I would pick to tie it all together.  I got lots of responses that it was a great idea.  It ends up that only 5 people sent me squares plus my brother who mailed me a shirt of his that she would recognize to make his square for him. And one aunt that sent me yard each of some fabric that she picked out.

So this project which was supposed to show how many people love and care about her has turned into a pathetic response which states the exact opposite. 

The people who made squares are expecting a project and I'm at a loss.  What do you think I should do with these measly 6 squares that won't turn out looking pathetic. 

It doesn't have to be a traditional quilt.

I'm really waiting until the last minute on this.. I have an appointment to get my hair cut tomorrow and I want something way different.

I'm definitely plus sized, and my hair is very very thick and coarse but healthy. I want something much shorter than what I have now.. I'm thinking just above the shoulders. Oh, and as low maintenance as possible.

Any ideas? better yet.. any pictures of suggestions? I need something to take to my stylist :p I would GREATLY appreciate any input  Grin

Here are before and after pictures I took last time I got a hair cut.. just to give an idea on face shape etc.

I've got similar circumstances and the key really is to go to a talented person and ask them what they suggest.

I got my perfect cut a while ago and am going back in next week to get it done again

Bob with micro layers so all I had to do was dry it straight or use a flatiron and it looked like it curled under.  Longer in front than back.  And some nice manic panic purple stripes Smiley

I do not have an embroidery machine but it does get me thinking.  Maybe if I got some leather tools I could press designs into them.

I've got these and I'd like something fun to do with these.  Either an adult or kid craft would be great!

It looks great especially for a first project.  I like the colors a lot!

And since you asked it does look like you might be twisting your stitches by knitting into the back of the loop.  Essentially this is a K tbl here is a link with videos  http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-glossary

Its a really common mistake for new knitters.
