11  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Polymer Beads on: July 29, 2007 08:25:58 PM
I dabble in a little bit of beading and over the weekend managed to get all excited about making my own beads with polymer clay. I've never worked with polymer clay before, and I'm wondering if I'd be biting off more than I can chew. Does anyone have any suggestions for a complete novice?

14  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you take care of your quilts? on: July 24, 2007 01:20:56 AM
I have some baby quilts which have been through the washing machine dozens of times without a problem - well, perhaps a little fading from being dried on the line.

I haven't ever washed either of the larger quilts I have, because one is for my daughter when she moves to a big girl's bed, and the other barely gets used because it's too nice. Embarrassed I have used it a bit as a lap quilt this winter, but it certainly doesn't need washing just yet. My sister, who made it, assures me it is completely machine washable.

I only took up quilting this year (although I had been wanting to do so for years, but never had the time or a good enough machine), at 37. I have, however, been sewing, knitting and doing cross-stitch and tapestry since I was 6 or 7.

I did keep it to myself because for the longest time knitting etc just wasn't cool. Then sometime in the last 5 or 10 years, Hollywood stars discovered knitting and it was all the rage.

Now I don't really give a fig what people think of my crafting. I do it because it helps keep me sane! Wink

Could you adapt something like url=http://www.quiltswithstyle.com/main/Projects/Pythagoras_Lute.html]this[/url]? I think it is astonishing!

Is there any way you could contact the store and ask them? They may even be able to sell you some via mail order, or to point you to their supplier who could either sell to you direct or find a local outlet for you.

That's just beautiful! Great job. I like the idea of calling it Banker's Boxes.
19  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Craft Ideas for Toddlers on: July 22, 2007 05:49:24 PM
OK, it's the middle of a cold, wet winter and my craft ideas for toddlers have all but been depleted. I'm looking for ideas to keep small children occupied - say age 2 1/2 up or so - that aren't too messy (I know, there are toddlers involved, so mess is inevitable), and are cheap and use items I am likely to have lying about.

I know you good folk will have a wealth of ideas for me!
