21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Aqua Teen Hunger Force Mooninites cross stitch (for Adult Swim swap) on: February 20, 2006 06:31:17 PM
 I finished this cross stitch piece the other day. I'm going to make it into a wall hanging for my partner in the Adult Swim swap.

I have a bigger photo of it but for some reason Craftster won't post it. If you go to my xanga and click on the mooninites picture it will take you to the bigger version.  http://www.xanga.com/mistressbatty
22  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / postage due issues - imput needed on: February 17, 2006 10:57:56 AM
I was wondering what the etiquette on postage due swap packages is?

 Yesterday I found a little card in my mailbox saying I owed money on a package in order to get it. There wasn't a last name on the card, only my last initial....so I knew it was a craftster package. It wasn't a lot of money I had to pay (under two dollars).....but it is still a pain because I'm living off of financial aid money (from college)...and  right at this moment I don't really have extra money to pay for other people's swaps.   I know the speech about not taking on swaps you can't handle...but that isn't the issue. I plan out my money before getting into a swap. I'm sure I have the supplies in my stash to craft and the money I'll need for postage. All other money is spoken for ....for bills, not enjoyment.
  So it puts me in a pickle when I have to pay to pick up stuff made for me. I know I could have said No and had it sent back....but I figured since I made the 45 minutes trip to the post office, I might as well have something to show for it.

 Now in this situation, the person put my swap goods into a Priority mailing envelope.....went to a kiosk and paid for First Class shipping. CONFLICT!!!   So the post office mailed it priority....because container trumps postage I guess.....and I had to pay the difference. So I guess this was just an oversight.......but in general....what do you do about having to pay to pick up your swap stuff?
23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / British Cross Stitching magazines on: February 12, 2006 08:08:59 AM
 The two I get are "CrossStitchers" and "The World of CrossStitching" (I know there are more in that family, I just can't find them in the bookstore I go to in WA).....but yeah.... I love these sooo much. lol
   When I lived at home, in Vermont, I used to look through all my frandmother's cross stitch magazines and it seemed to always be the same stuff....like country farm home motifs and not that many patterns to boot.
 Now that I'm out here in a new state for college....I get the fun things that a small town doesn't have....like Barnes & Noble! lol
  The other day I was in there looking \through the crafty mag section and found those two imported cross stitching magazines.....and had to go back in yesterday to pick up the new ones. lol
  It seems like the bookstore gets them.....late (I just got the Jan. 06 issue in  Feb...) but other than that these are great.
  They have anywhere from 60 - 70 or more patterns, free kits (at least for the past couple issues there have been free kits included...not sure if it's always like that....but I'm thinking so because in the 'In the next issue'....area they said there would be another free kit.......um yeah, there's more modern stuff I guess.....they have cute characters like Tatty Teddy, Hello Archie!, and Eliot & Buttons, there are Disney & Winnie the Pooh stuff, mini projects, big projects, great holiday issues.....and one of my favorite parts is how much help they offer in the magazines. Tips on how to do what and suggestions for what to do with your work.
   They also include sections for penpals, cross stitch, and this neat page that is sayings....and they're all from other countries so I find it really interesting to hear common sayings from somewhere new.....
   I'm jealous at all the cool material they show that I can't find in town though.....like Adia paper. !!! Freakin' paper you cross stitch on. lol I'm a nerd sorry. lol
   But yeha...I just needed to sing the praises of the imports. <3

28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / overhead hoodie for baby - a pattern anywhere? on: January 09, 2006 01:46:40 AM
 My brother is expecting a baby in May....When I go home in June I want to bring a big box of things I've made for my nephew. And one thing I want to make is a black over the head (NOT button up) hoodie, with the front pocket like normal hoodies have, for the baby for when fall and winter roll around. So by that time he'll be 6 or 7 months....so I'll need a pattern for a hoodie for a 6-9 months or 7 - 9 months.
  Does anyone know of a pattern somewhere online? Or does anyone know of an adult size hoodie pattern that they could scale down for me?
29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Jack Skellington - spoiler for LauraNC on: December 15, 2005 07:16:42 PM
 lol After all these years of being at Craftser and all the things I've made, I've never posted anything I've made. lol I much prefer telling everyone how great their work is and getting inspiration.
 But ....I put together this little piece of cross stitch for a swap I was in and thought I'd share. I think it turned out pretty cool. I'm working on a big Sally head now.....

I love christmas breaks...all that time to relax and create <3
 Anyone else made any Nightmare Before Christmas needlework pieces?

30  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / loswer case back stitch alphabet on: December 13, 2005 11:03:25 PM
 Does anyone know where I can find a pattern for a lower case backstitching alphabet? I can only find capitol letters but that won't work for what I'm doing.
 thanks in advance!
