11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: French Baby Wrap-Around Sweater on: January 16, 2007 05:28:07 AM

i'm having a baby in june and i'd love to know what pattern you used so i can buy it for myself, if that's even possible here in the states.

that is just pretty!
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting needles on airplanes? on: January 09, 2007 07:19:47 PM
one of the ladies in my knitting group works for the TSA at the local airport as a bag screener

she told me that scissors are now allowed (but must be blunt tipped), knitting needles of all types are allowed if there is a project on them (empty needles must be checked). you can have aluminum but bamboo or plastic are less apt to cause issues with those TSA employees who are anal retentive. and putting point protectors on your needles will help speed things along.

that's what she told me!

I asked my husband about this, since he works at a checkpoint and in baggage for TSA, and he said rest assured the rules do not say this! That's an old rule from several years ago and they have since changed for carry-on. Also, the rules for bag screeners are different than carry-on screeners. You do not need to have a project on the needles, nor do you need point protectors. He did say she's right about anal TSA workers. Smiley Just smile and nod and explain whatever you have to, but in their operations rulebook or whatever it's called (Top Secret Government Stuff or something) knitting needles of any type are allowed, along with sewing/embroidery needles, and scissors with a 4" blade or smaller. The TSA website is fairly up-to-date and you can always check with the airport itself before packing up and flying out.

Just FYI Smiley

14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: flannel galore? on: November 28, 2006 05:10:36 AM
let's see...

my husband likes his boxers with the little opening. however, when it's winter he likes to wear his flannel pj pants to bed, but because we live in florida those quickly get too warm. so short pj pants might be a very nice idea! in fact...i think you've given me a christmas idea....Smiley

are they the hunting/fishing/camping/travelling type? maybe some travel pillows and blankets. or, if you live in a colder climate, a steering wheel cover for cold mornings? one of those hats that go over the ears? lightweight slippers? you could get faux suede or another non-slip fabric to cover the soles. scarves are always fun. are any of them artists or readers? you could cover a sketchbook or make a little book-cover or even a little simple handmade book with flannel cover. little mp3 player or camera cases?

that's about all i have right now...hope some of it helps!

ooh! i have the shoulder seams sewed and the bodice gathering. that's it.

even though i cut EXACTLY on the pattern lines (i'm neurotic) the pieces still don't quite match up right. grrr. i'm thinking this dress will be my project to work on when i need something boring to do during the course of my pregnancy. if it takes nine months, so be it.

just to repeat - WOW! that really is lovely. i would LOVE to have something like that for my baby. for me! that's truly inspiring! if you have the patience for that with a baby, i should have the patience to sew up my silly dress without a baby! anyway, awesome work and excellent skills, time management, patience, vision, creativity.....just, wow.
18  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: Simplicity 4050- Sewalong for Curvacious Craftsters on: October 28, 2006 07:13:23 AM
wow! thanks guys!! you all are awesome! Smiley

i'm slowly getting my energy back. i'm hoping to have renewed interest in this dress pretty soon, because it seems like it might be a pretty good early pregnancy dress!

sorcha, i cannot even imagine being in a bodice right now! everything is so tender and sensitive (um, tmi?) and i get dizzy if i'm standing longer than 30 minutes! kudos to you! Smiley

again, thank you so much. we're excited! i hope everyone feels a little more back on track, too!

oh i have done absolutely nothing with this project. i've totally given up on it and it makes me nauseous every time i walk by the pattern laying on my sewing table. i should put that away. i magically lost all desire to do anything at all, lately.
