1  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Re: Custom rubber stamps in Boston area? on: December 12, 2006 03:05:48 PM
Hi, I've gotten custom stamps made a couple times at Bob Slate (in Harvard Square). If you're just using a logo they have on hand it's super fast (and cheap--mine was like $6). but you can also give them images to create stamps. I did that and it was about $25 for a 3 inch by 3 inch block. It took about 10 days or so to come in.
2  EUROPE / SCANDINAVIAN/NORDIC / Stockholm crafty advice? on: May 24, 2006 06:22:23 AM
I'm going to Stockhold and Visby next week. I've been doing a lot of research on visiting various museums, design shoppes, etc. Does anyone have any advice for where to shop for fabric? Yarn? Craft books and patterns? I'm assuming things are more readily available than in the states, but any help, URL's or shop names you could give me would be very much appreciated! Thanks!  Smiley

I had such a great time at the Faire! We lucked out so much with the weather (except for the wind gusts on Sunday!) and everyone's booths looked so awesome. I took loads of pix and will post here soon! Thanks so much to everyone who attended or was a vendor!!!!!!

I'm *really* looking forward to this. . . as a vendor and an attendee. Can't wait to go to Jess Hutch's workshop (http://www.makezine.com/blog/archive/2006/03/learn_how_to_knit_george_at_th.html)!
5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Baby Quilt on: March 13, 2006 10:10:54 AM
I'm in completion mode these days and have finally finished a few projects that have been lingering in my craft room for quite some time. This is a quilt I made for my friend's baby (Maeve). She was born in December, so March isn't too late, I hope! Smiley It's all flannel, so I think it'll be very warm. I got the cute animal flannel at Joann's a few months ago on super sale ($2/yard or so).

Here's a little detail of the embroidered corner of the quilt. I wanted to do something a little more elaborate by was worried that I wouldn't finish while the baby is still. . a baby! Smiley

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / T-shirt quilt! on: March 13, 2006 09:59:29 AM
I know there are a few people who've made these before, but after a long time I finally helped finished this one:

It ended up being about 3 sessions. My friends Craig and Jon have a beavy of awesome t-shirts (as evidenced here!) and asked me and a crafty pal of mine, Stacie, to help them with making a t-shirt quilt. We made each square 12" X 12". We alternated the t-shirts with dark green flannel; the backing is pieced flannel (so it'll be super warm hopefully!). It's such a pain sewing with t-shirt material, so if you look too closely you can tell that some of the pieces don't square up perfectly. If we'd thought about it beforehand we probably would have used a stabilizer.

We also ended up making our own bias tape for the edging, which I highly recommend! You can learn how to do it here[/url.
But as it is, it turned out well and they loved it.

Thanks for a great "State of the Craftster Union," Leah. I think I speak for all when I say that all your hard work is so greatly appreciated! Cheesy
8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Rapunzel Scarf with Hand Spun Yarn on: January 22, 2006 02:58:29 PM
I finally got around to making one of these "rapunzel" scarves. Here's a sort of dark pic of how mine turned out:

It's in pinks mainly. I made mine really long---you can see that it goes around 3 times. Each length was 3 "wing spans" (i.e. out stetched hand to out stretched hand) and each plait of the braid has 10 strands.

This is a really fun (and really, SO easy) gift!

Thanks for posting, Leah!

So lovely! Was it of your own creation? Or, from a pattern?

I love this pin so much! I went to my local Joann's (in Saugus, MA) and found a ton of lavender/purple measuring tapes for like $1.50. I picked up a ton and the cashier clearly thought I was totally insane. I'll def. post pix when I get around to making one!
