4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Avengers mini quilt on: May 28, 2015 11:11:13 AM
Not too long ago I participated in a mini quilt swap and this is the quilt I made for my partner I used free patterns on craftsy by Quiet Play. This was my first time trying paper piecing and I don't like it but I love the way it makes things come out so there's probably quite a bit more of it in my future.

5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Scents for Men's soap on: September 23, 2008 09:17:20 PM
Hello all.  I am new to this beauty product thing (see I haven't actually tried it yet)  But I want to try out soapmaking for my own personal use as well as gift giving....I have no aspirations of the responsibility of a business in it.  I was wondering if anyone would mind sharing with me what scents or scent combinations make for a masculine smell.  I want to share some wonderful soap with the great guys in my life, but I'm quite sure none of them will be too keen on the awesome sounding peach soap recipe I found on a site (I forget which one but it seemed like a simple recipe to start with)
6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Can I take the paint off?? on: September 20, 2008 09:06:14 PM
I recently purchased a matching set of John Wayne statues at a garage sale with the plans of turning them into end table lamps for my father for Christmas (he is a HUGE John Wayne nut, I mean the man has a framed photo of the man in his bedroom!!)  They are ceramic (I think) and already painted but they look dirty....I've cleaned them off with a damp cloth but they almost look and feel as if they were rolled in dirt before they were painted.  I am wanting to clean them up really well and repaint them to look nicer but I don't know where to start, how do I get the paint off...and the funny texture so I have a smooth nice surface to work with?  Any help would be wonderful Smiley
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / My Sewing machine hates me! on: December 05, 2007 07:48:58 PM
Okay so I have the worst luck with all things sewing, yet I refuse to give up on it. My mom was amazing at all things crafty and she used to fix all of my mistakes and assure me I would get it some day.  I'm still not getting it.  I was sewing away just fine earlier this evening working on a quilt top for a very special christmas present I'm making and all of a sudden I start getting huge loops instead of neat pretty stitches on the back side of my fabric. Does anyone know what could have caused this? I have tried rewinding my bobbin and rethreading the machine, and adjusting the stitches and the back of my pieces still have huge loops of thread hanging off of them instead of the neat stitches that it was making not an hour ago.  Much thanks to anyone who has any idea how to solve my dilemma.
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Titanium Jewelry pieces?? on: August 17, 2006 08:46:17 AM
Hello all, I hope I am in the right place and this hasn't already been addressed somewhere else. (I looked but found nothing).  I really like making those pretty chandilear (sp?) earrings  but I can't wear them myself I have very picky ears that will only allow the titanium studs or that boring stuff they do body piercing with (which is also expensive for being so plain)  I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a place to get at least the earring hook pieces in titanium.  Thanks for helping  Smiley
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I love Messanger Bags on: August 16, 2006 10:42:20 AM
This is only my second messanger bag, I made my first last week and quite a few of the girls at my work loved it and one girl requested that I make her a pink one.  Let me tell you, finding a pink print suitable for a teenager (as in not one that looks like grandma's couch) was difficult but I finally found this one.  Now I want to keep it Undecided

Anyway on to the pictures, tell me what you think.

The bag:

The strap:

The cell phone pocket:

Front pockets (there are two side by side but its hard to tell):

The inside of bag (no neato pockets, just plain flat insides)

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My Butterfly Messanger Bag on: August 10, 2006 10:28:13 PM
Hello all.  This is the first bag/purse I have ever attempted.  I sort of followed the tutorial for the nintendo bag mentioned in the instructions for the bag challenge, and sort of did my own thing (which meant a lot of seam ripping and re-sewing things)  I entered it in the bag challenge but decided to post it here and get some feedback from you guys & gals (my boyfriend was impressed but he doesn't know a thing about sewing)  Please comment my bag, and if you feel so inclined then vote for it in the bag challenge.


This is me modeling the bag

This is the front view of the bag (there is stuff stuck inside to keep it standing up nice, otherwise the flap does cover the whole front of the bag)

This is the front of the bag with the flap opened, there are two side-by-side pockets on the front

This is a close-up of the cell phone pocket on the side, it closes with a snap
