1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Maternity Costume on: October 27, 2010 09:36:30 PM
I remember a gal who had a good bump one year.  She wore a black long sleeved body suit, painted with white bones - and a skeleton baby painted on her tummy!  So full of win!

Maybe a lightbulb?  Hubby likes the idea of the chest burster, or even Kuato from Total Recall!

Haha this is awesome!  I'm watching Pirates of the Caribean worlds end right now! 

LOL, my first thought was "OMG awesome!", and my next was "hmmm, if that was in gray, it would TOTALLY be the squid captain guy!"

That stripe scarf is gorgeous!  And hey, I can do that stitch!  LOVE the colors!  And the skully scarf, backed with fleece?  Want!

What great projects, I bet your friends were SOOO happy!

Neat shadow box, great idea!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Project Runway Ep 8 question... on: October 08, 2009 10:21:00 PM
So I'm watching the "Un-Wedding Dress" episode.  One divorcee' states she wants all cruelty-free fabrics - including no wool!

Umm, sheep nowadays (for the last 500-800 years) are bred specifically to grow longer hair.  How can someone say that shearing sheep is cruel?  When they are sheared, they are more comfortable, can be dipped and have the parasites off them, don't get blown away in a high wind, and their babies can feed more easily.

While the shearing itself LOOKS harsh and careless, the shearers are VERY careful to not harm the sheep.  A scar means lower wool production in addition to a vector for disease.

To NOT shear them is the cruel thing!

Really nice work! And THANKS for the tute, I will need one of these when I get my doggie!

It IS great to have a pal to exercise with, and remember, when the dog rehydrates, you should too!   Cheesy

Jeff is a happy cute dog, and I must say he is in GREAT shape!

I need to make a mask... But not to protect me!  Because of my jaw, I am starting to "gleek", or projectile spit, more and more of late!  These masks will at least keep me from spitting on others!  PLus I cough more effectively if I open my mouth wide, and turn away from people...

How are the masks at preventing ME from spreading something to others?  LOL!

Stunning job!!  I couldn't hit this, but I bet your kids will have a GREAT time!

LOL, we had a birthday party at an SCA event many years back, and tried to think what pinata would be good for the adults to hit.  Barney, of course!  We had a good old fashioned Barney Bashing!  The scariest part was, we hid the pinata in MY tent, and I'm mortally afraid of that purple demon.  I awoke in the night to find it staring down at me.... [shudder] TERRIFYING!

We filled the pinata with candies and cloven fruits.  It held together really well even with the big boys whacking at it!  In the end, the birthday boy got the tail, which he mounted and hung above his desk at work!

Worth it!  Pinatas are ALWAYS worth it!

Wonderful job!  Hestia is one of my favorite Goddesses as well, and I think She would be well pleased with this shrine!

10  California / California: South / Store closings - I has a sad.... on: February 24, 2009 10:40:29 AM
Word has come out recently that "That Yarn Store" in Eagle Rock will be closing their doors.

Stick and Stone in Van Nuys has also closed in the last month or so.

If we don't support these places, we'll be left with Joanne's and Michaels.  While they have ok stock, they can't or won't get any truly spectacular skeins, and carry nearly NO raw wool.

So either pay for the slightly higher prices for good yarns, or remember to factor in your shipping charges.  Buy local, it's good for you!
