That's great! The stained glass is gorgeous!

Just a side note, there's a Dog Chapel in St. Johnsbury Vermont.  There's a beautiful story behind it.. Here's the link to it. http://www.huneck.com/shop/catalog/dog_chapel.php
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: dying shirts? no i'm not emo. on: November 11, 2005 04:24:53 AM
You could always try the classic food stains... I've got no expereince in that field, but it makes logica sense to me. (which may mean that it actually makes no sense)

examples: cranberry juice soak for a pinkish color, tea/coffee for a beige color, hawaiian punch always makes a pretty stain, grass stains! I don't know a  bout the grass... maybe when you boil grass it lets off a green liquid? Ha. Probably not.

Then! You could go crazy with the bleach pen!

You could also hit up your library for a books on natural dyes and then make a foray into the forest.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making a tote with a flat bottom ?? on: November 11, 2005 04:18:34 AM
It's really easy to make the kind of bags you've been making (two rectangles sewn together) into a square bottom bag. Basically, what you do is flip the bag inside out and go to the bottom of the bag. You want to pinch one of the corners out, so that the bottom of the bag gets flat and then sew across it to form a triangle. If you look closely at the L.L. Bean tote bags that's how they do it.  Grin

I know a picture is worth a thousand words, so  I promise to take one when my crazy weekend is over.  Grin Good luck in your tote bag forays!

*whoops! sorry! I should have read the all of the posts thoroughly before posting. d'oh!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: wanna make 5 shawls for me? on: November 10, 2005 11:43:38 PM

I'm so excited about this! I was worried that the number five would be a little bit daunting  Grin OFF TO PM!

That's beautiful! I especially appreciate how well you executed the eyes and ears! The details are wonderful--- even if it's not an exact portrait of your grandma,the details are lovely.

--- it looks like terra cotta to me, with some sort of oxide. Yes? No?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / wanna make 5 shawls for me? on: November 09, 2005 11:46:54 PM
Okay. So this is completely random, but I've been toying with this idea lately. I'm getting married in June 2007 and I want to give my lovely ladies shawls as a gift. I however cannot knit/crochet.. I've tried. I suck. I hate it.

Anyways! So, I'd like to contract with a craftster if possible, you know keeping it all in the family.  Grin I of course would provide all of the materials and pay. As for payment! I'm broke, but I'm also a potter. I was thinking that it might be a fair trade for 5 shawls... some monetary compensation, and then a variety of lovely bowls, platters, etc. From my biased perspective, I feel like that would be a fair trade.

I really love the highly detailed, delicate looking shawls.. but then again a small detail goes a long way.... I'd be completely willing to talk it out.  I have limited knowledge in this field.

So... here's hoping someone thinks that it's a great idea...  Grin

that is absolutely lovely! I am so jealous of people who can knit such lovely things. Fantastic job!

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: no flowers?!?!?! on: November 08, 2005 11:29:40 AM
You don't need flowers if you don't want flowers.. simple as that.  What if you just didn't replace them with anything.. no carrying of items at all?

OR! how about basketfuls of fall leaves... or fruit. I know that fruit idea may seem crazy, but it could be really beautiful.  Or you could make bouquets out of fall leaves.

 Grin Good luck. Whatever you decide to do will be lovely I'm sure.

10  UNITED STATES / Vermont / Vermont Weddings on: November 04, 2005 01:58:24 AM
Hey All!

So! I'm recently engaged and it seems like my life is now strictly wedding... at least that's what my brain has been telling me.  Grin I was just wondering if  any of you crafty people have gotten married in the Burlington area and might have some pointers for me.. Please? Right now I really would like to be married in the old round church in Richmond Vermont... now the problem is finding an affordable reception. Oy.  Grin ANYWAY! Any input would be most appreciated! Thank you!
