Looks good! The coaster color pallete turned out great. That's one of my favorite Dali paintings.

I've done my fair share of bake sales for charity, and the more you explain the cause the more people will buy. I had one girl pay $20 for a muffin, and another woman pay $5 for a cup of fruit salad because they were so moved.

Be sure to check with your school first, though! We ran into trouble because of a wellness policy, but enough begging and pleading did the job. I'd check with the local library, local church and community festivals, and grocery stores to see if they'd be willing to let you set up camp.

I've found the best way to do a bake sale is first from the heart, second from the stomach, and third from the eye. My bake sale helpers were artists too, so things on the table looked as great as they tasted. Be sure to invest some time in that.

You have wonderful style. I love the watercolor and ink, of course, and I really respect the Chagall inspired drawings. He's a tough artist to even begin to emulate, and you really, really pulled it off exceedingly well.

I am all about this pattern. I can't wait to knit this up for friends going off to school.

If you want to tone it down (why would you?!), whitewash it. One coat of thinned down white paint applied with a rag does wonders.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Want to recommend infant hat pattern for a boy? on: June 19, 2007 04:48:43 PM
I love the umbilical cord hat in Sn'B. I've knit several.
I've also done the cupcake hat from ChileConYarne (just google it) for a boy before, too. They've got a viking hat I've yet to tackle.

I knit all baby items in cotton. It washes, its soft, and comes in a kazillion colors. I wish I could recommend someone spinning in cotton, but I haven't come across that just yet.

I've been looking for baby sock patterns everywhere. I know you said you made it up, but would mind directing me towards a pattern similar to yours?
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / outdoor wall mosaic on: May 28, 2007 09:31:23 PM
Hey guys--
I'm looking to put a mosaic on a brick wall outdoors, in just one strip that goes laterally acrosss the wall. What would I have to do to prepare the wall? What adhesives and grouts would you recommend? Materials I shouldn't use?

Thanks for any help!

Everybody loves grilled cheese. Try swiss and bacon, cheddar and apple, pear and gorgonzola...They're easy to make, on the lower-priced side, and delish.
10  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Baby items knit-a-long? on: April 06, 2007 09:15:00 PM
I just may have to join. I've wanted to knit Knitty's "Haiku" for a few weeks now, for a friend who just had her baby about a month ago, and for a teacher who has one on the way. Never knit a sweater-type item before, but I figure it's worth a shot.
