i'm sitting here so frustrated I am literally screaming. It is so bad that hubby decided to leave and do "something."

I can't post my shop because all my tools work in IE.

Right now I cannot type inside any text boxes, pms, replies, whatever, in IE. Has anyone heard anything about a update to Windows XP that ruined the IE browser?

Switching to Safari and Firefox, but have to move all my links, bookmarks, and such. URRRRGH!

Hope to list new stuff. . .

Cara, I'd love to get a real life lesson on shuttle tatting.  I like my fiber crafts to be mindless!!!

Cyndi, next time you are near Philadelphia or Trenton, NJ let me know! I'll gladly teach you, it is soooo easy if you have a teacher right there to watch you. I'm closer to Trenton than Phillie.

MLF is right, needle tatting is easier to do when you first learn, but shuttle tatting is faster, and mindless after you learn.

I prefer to tat with pearl cottons, they are easier to use and untie.

If anyone wants to tat with larger thread, I can make some tatting kits with needles and beads.

I still have my tatting on CD kit, too. I know, no store yet, but PM me and we can figure it out.  (Can't post my store until Monday night, please be patient!)

Freestyle, weaving is my ALL TIME favorite craft, and then tatting, then knitting, then crochet, embroidery, sewing about equal. If you all lived near me, I'd give you all lessons and you'd love them the way I do!

I live like a mile from the shop, if there's ever anything you see that you just need I could always see if they have it in the store and pick it up for you...


I love that shop, and all I have ever seen is their online store .  .  .

I can put on a bag or a towel/towels. I have a machine to embroider. PM me.

I'm just popping in while I can.

Nesse, try downloading this demo software from my site, it will create custom dog sweater knit-crochet patterns for you.

Basic & Critter Clothes software for knitting & crochet

Read about it:
Software description page

I can create the patterns for you, too, as I have the software purchased. I bought these long ago before I ever became a dealer because they are so great to use.

PM if you need help.

Now back to looking for tape measure to get atsuko some measurements.

Zelda.Suicide, I'll try to claim from you when I come on again, much later, sorry!

Very cool!  I bet your hubby loved it!  Sounds like lots of fun!!!

Glad it worked out!

Forgot to say before that I'm too sentimental to part with Lana's clothes.  Her boxes of clothes are taking over the house.  Smiley

My friend's mom (40 years ago) saved many of her older sister's baby dresses and things until her  older daughter was a teenager.

The girl would wear the dresses to school as blouses and tunics.

I thought that was so great that I went home and asked my mom where my dresses were. I'm the oldest of 4 girls so they didn't survive. Oh well. . .

ZS sorry the morning sickness is so intense.

lapoli, maybe if you made the guys tees that were look-alike suits and they only had to wear black jeans, they'd do it.

Guys really don't like dressing up the way girls do. Have pity, hee hee. You'll see they like the 'acting" part and over do the acting and are so funny. If you make a concession, you'll see they will respond.

just a suggestion.

Well, went to VA beach, tanned and drenched, loving every moment. Just a slight refreshing breeze to dry off with, cool 70's water, and lots of sun, but not too hot in the morning -- a perfect day for me! Swam for an hour, but "Bill" really was kicking up waves still, so I tired faster than usual. Usually I swim for two hours.

While you all are probably used to it, I watched fascinated as the fighter jets did test flights nearby. Actually, I don't know if they were training or testing or something else, but it was cool to see.

I'm still knitting the socks for ZS, they are so cute, can't wait for you all to see them!
