91  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Pets or weird people doing weird things to your craft.... on: December 17, 2006 03:06:22 PM
The other day I woke up and looked at my little boy cat, Flower.  He had some of that monofilament thread I use for quilting hanging out of his mouth.  So I started pulling on it.  And pulling.  And pulling.  It looked like he was flossing with it.  I was very lucky that he doesn't seem to have gotten it down into his stomach, but I was amazed how much he had in his mouth.  Bad kitty.  (Bad owner for leaving the thread out!)

So I knew that there would be a thread for this somewhere.  I just got back from the hospital because I sewed my finger to my project.  I freaked out, and the needle from the machine broke off inside my finger.  It was sick, like it actually made a stitch inside my finger and there were threads sticking out of the top of my fingernail along with the blood.  So I had minor surgery under general anasthetic and my finger is still numb as I try to type this!

Poor thing.  My grandmother sewed through her thumb while she was making my aunt's wedding dress.  Oh, the profanity (I was only 5 and I REMEMBER!)!  Fortunately, I don't think she bled on the white fabric.

I teach refugee ladies sewing, and I always have my hand near the presser foot and I'm just terrified they'll sew on me!

93  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Made a portfolio to store blocks in? on: November 21, 2006 06:04:38 PM
Recently I saw a lady who made a small portfolio to carry her BOM blocks in.  It was smaller than a regular artists' portfolio, but it did have a zipper closure and the two handles on the outside.  On the inside she had put some tape to handle the blocks securely on one side (same tape as you use in waistbands, I've just gone blank).

Has anyone ever made one of these, and could you post instructions?

I was just thinking about a block for the Steve Irwin quilt... but you could tweak it for Sue.  Have a body lying on the beach, and a crocodile wearing the hat and/or dress.  (I had thought about having Sue standing, fully dressed, and then have a croc's snout hang out from the bonnet!)

I wish I had seen this thread earlier!  I was thinking about making the little boy Robert/Bob a quilt... but thought it was a little silly of me.

I'm sure they will be thrilled you all thought about it, and the varieties of blocks!

I'm in Des Moines too.  I do lots of things, but mostly I'm quilting and sewing now, and I'd like to re-learn knitting and crocheting.

I'm in Des Moines too.  I do several things, but lately I'm quilting.  I haven't been to Ritual Cafe yet but I would like to (I can bring some handwork along, I'm trying to learn how to handpiece).
