That squirrel is sweet! Almost makes me want to like squirrels again (after years of them living in our loft, I can't stand the sight of the little blighters any more!).

And mollyxmayhem, I've seen that first picture done plenty of times but your version's really striking. Smiley

I took my camera down a local park on a good day and took a couple (about 250) pictures. Some of the best are below. Still not as good as I'd like to be, but I'm improving!

There's larger versions at http://www.flickr.com/photos/terpsikhore/sets/72157605970594462/ if anyone fancies taking a gander. Smiley

I would absolutely wear that second dress, in any colour other than pink. The fit is brilliant!

Try Photobucket or Imageshack, maybe? Smiley

Eeeh, so much beautiful hair! I'm a long-time lurker and rarely come out of the woodwork, but I thought I'd share a couple pictures of my hair. Nothing like some of the gorgeous colours in here, but I'm pleased with it!

It's Directions Violet dye over unbleached hair (ever tried bleaching red hair? DON'T. You'll dye of chemical burns or sheer boredom long before it strips any colour. Sheeeesh!) on the bottom half only. It looks fab from the front, but the back's not so great - my hair refuses to take up dye unless you really push it, and I had some trouble reaching the back myself so basically the dye stuck where my hair was driest: round the front, and on the very tips. I could have tried to even it up, but it took a couple hours and half a bottle of dye just to get this far and I'd had enough!


SquishaySka77 - I like it! The bangs get my thumbs-up. Smiley

I'm a little scared to post...so many beautiful photos!

At any rate, here's my ha'penny-worth. Anyone familiar with the "fold 1000 paper cranes, get a wish granted" story? Well, my friend's ex (and still good friend) has liver cancer. She's folding him 1000 origami cranes as a 'get well soon!' gift, and she's also trying to get their mutual friends to fold/photograph/draw 1000 more between them. So this is my contribution.

Aaaaand I just realised I can't upload photos because I haven't posted enough. Drat. At any rate, they're up on Flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/24038546@N03/sets/72157604968850479/. More are coming, but I ran out of a). newspaper, b). inspiration and c). light...

This may be a dumb question, but what is the aspirin for?

Aspirin is very similar to a compound called salicylic acid, which - among other things - allows dead outer skin cells to flake off more easily (kinda like an exfoliator) so new cells can come through. I'd guess that's why? I don't really know, but that seems plausible. Smiley

Great, thanks! For some reason I looked in every pattern catalogue EXCEPT Vogue...*smacks forehead*
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Empire-line dresses (+ bonus satin question!) on: March 05, 2008 10:13:49 AM
I found the most beautiful rainbow-coloured polyester satin in the fabric shop nearby, on half-price. I plan on using it to make a formal dress.

Thing is, the design I have in my head is this:


(excuse the wonk on the drawing) but I can't work out how to make it. Up to this point, I've only ever made separate tops and skirts, and the empire line stumps me. I've had a look for a pattern I can use as a starting point, but can't see anything. Can anyone suggest one, or a way to make this? I just don't know where to start.

The other question is - the satin is quite thin, but heavy as anything. Would this style of skirt (A-line ish) hang right? I have visions of me finally making the thing, trying it on and finding it sticks out like a triangle! Thanks.

Handmade card sounds like a plan, then! And I'm liking the bookmark idea. =)

Em26a - I just looked up his Livejournal profile and he had it listed there. Sorry. =S
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Sweet, non-overwhelming birthday gift for male friend... on: January 29, 2008 08:22:26 PM
(Whoo, lurker crawling out of the woodwork...)

I have a close male friend - one of 3 people I could say I'm really *friends* with, as opposed to just friendly. I thought his birthday was April 11th, for some reason. I just looked it up to confirm it, and whoops - it's on February 11th. Undecided

He's one of those people who seems to have everything - except self-confidence. He wrote very nice letters to his friends at Christmas, thanking them for what they do and for making him feel appreciated and valued because he doesn't always feel like he should be. I write novels in my spare time, and he's incredibly encouraging, provides me with a much-needed male insight, proofreads them, gives them to friends and family to read as well, and tells me what I'm doing well and what he likes about them. The best gift I could think of was self-publishing my first completed work on Lulu.com, dedicated to him, and giving him a copy with a bookmark stuck in the dedication page - I'm not trying to be arrogant when I say that's the best gift I could think of, I mean I really want him to see how much I appreciate everything he does for me. No way am I going to be able to get it done for the 11th though. Sad

He's what I believe is termed a 'metalhead' - long hair, beard, lots of Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath. Appearances aside however, he is about as threatening as a marshmallow. Smiley

It sounds silly, but it would be easier if we were dating. He's got a girlfriend though, so I have to be careful with 'sentimental' and meaningful gifts - I don't want to be accused of trying anything. Sigh. I don't have access to a sewing machine and I can't knit/crochet, but I can embroider, I can bake, and I can do papercrafty things. There are loads of things I COULD do, but I'm really struggling to find something that shows what an absolute angel I think he is and how much I appreciate everything. Any thoughts?...
