1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Yet another "What'll look good" question. on: March 30, 2007 04:56:15 PM
I'm a curvy gal. About 40-37-42 and I need to find a dress for an April wedding. ::groan::
My breasts are my favorite part about my body, I've got tummy flab and my legs are- well we'll say "thunder thighs" comes to mind.

I keep looking for dresses (mainly because I'm not sure I'll have time to make my own, and I want to support small businesses) but I don't know what to look for!  Shocked

Any suggestions?
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / To Harden Eggshells....? on: January 13, 2007 08:07:13 PM
Alright, I was following some instructions online that said to harden eggshell I should coat the shell in epoxy. almost 24 hours later (with 6 minute setting epoxy) the stuff didn't harden the shell worth a darn.
So I come to the amazing people of Craftster with one favor to ask: "HELP!!!!!!"
What would you all suggest trying? Resin thinly coated? Nail polish??? I need all the suggestions I can get. The eggshell has to be hard enough to hold up to being worn as jewelry....... ^^;

Thankie! (I assumed it'd fit here better than anywhere else)
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / For my Dad- Request etc (to help make a quilt) on: October 04, 2006 03:53:44 PM
Alright, I have a favor type thing to ask. (Involving quilting! Wink )
Crafty deb (The amazing, super, awsome and completely wonderful person that she is) suggested a quilting project for me- or rather, for my Father.

You see, Grandma used to be a seamstress. She'd been sewing since before my Dad was born and I reciently was given *all* of her fabric and sewing stuff. When I sent a craft package to Craftydeb that contained some of the fabric from Grandma that I wouldn't use I let her know, and also commented about it to Dad.....
...He started crying....

See, Grandma's going in for surgery tomorrow (Friday)- she has colon cancer. She's been in a nursing home for almost a year now. She still tries to be just as independant as she was- but she can't. It kills him to think about- and he's scared he's going to lose his Mom to the surgery.

Upon hearing this, Craftydeb suggested that I ask for all of the quilters' help. She suggested that I make a "memory quilt" using materials that I was given, from her.
I think that it would be amazing to get help. See, I'm not the best quilter in the world, nor do I have a ton of time.......

*SO* The idea, is that I send you fabric from my Grandma's stash, you make a quilt square (or two or three) and send them back. (Pieced squares, any pattern) I think that it would be amazing to perhaps get this done for Christmas, but if it takes longer, it takes longer. I have patience (sometimes) Roll Eyes

If we all do 12x12 inch squares I should only need...... After doing my math I realized I'd need 56 squares total.  Shocked

I'll also piece it and finish it off here at home. So no worries about that.

So what do you say? Have I made your eyeballs melt from all the reading? Wink Are you willing to help?

Thank all so much (in advance!)

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Safety Pin Question on: September 06, 2006 08:58:46 PM
Alright Ladies (and possibly Gents)

I've seen safety pins sold for quilting, what do you all use them for? Do you use them at all? I'm trying to figure out what they're for!  Cheesy

Thankies!  Kiss
